Also, I got help regarding hard drive assignments. sdb2 is my C:\, sdc2 is my E:\ but I also recognized them because I used labels to identify the drives. Computer is C:\, Games is E:\ etc. Youtube ran perfectly fine, what about viruses and malware, should I still run Avast and Malwarebytes like I have been with Windows?
I noticed a drive that just says File System, and I noticed all of my physical hard drives because they are all Western Digital so they show up as WDC. But aside from the sdb and sdc, the File System is labeled as /. Is that the DVD-ROM drive? It's telling me it has 16.7 gb free, but I can't install anything to it right? I used a DVD-R since that's all I had. Can I install anything at this point or not? I want to see what kinds of games I could run mainly.
Oh my other question. I run 2 monitors. In Windows my left monitor is main, the monitor on the right isn't my main monitor. In Windows all I have to do is drag the mouse from the left screen to the right, but in Linux I have to drag the mouse to the left to get it to show up on the right screen. Are there options that let me change that? I was going through the options for it last night, but saw no option for that part specifically. I got my icons and taskbar on the left hand screen perfectly fine. Thanks for the help Only thing I'm wondering about now is virus protection and mobo driver installation. At this point, I don't care. I can easily get rid of Windows as it's all on the C:\ drive, I just wonder about on a scale of 1 to 10, how easy is it to install programs and my GPU drivers? I've done Wine before, but it was a lot of hoops for getting it right. All my games are on E:\, music is on F:\ and all my pictures and movies are on G:\. Thanks again
OH and also, here is my inxi posted below....
