Beginners Featured Kubuntu

Now Available:

Now available on Bright Hub Part three of the series “The Move from Windows to Kubuntu is Smoother than You Think” the article is called “Introducing Your New Kubuntu Installation“.

In this article I explain the standard features of Kubuntu, where to find applications and how to install an application using adept.  It is filled with screen shots of Kubuntu with both KDE3 and KDE4.  I believe it gives a good insight into the fresh installation of Kubuntu.  It interlaces perfectly with both part 1 and part 2, “The Move from Windows to Kubuntu is Smoother than You Think” , “Installing Kubuntu with Wubi

In part four next week I will tackle the difficulty of getting Codecs, Flash and Java to work.  I will make it easy as pie to install everything and have you viewing Youtube video’s or playing games in no time.  Stay tunes for that one.

After part four I want to go into some of the applications a little deeper if you have any suggestions then please leave a comment on this post.  Tell me which application you would like to hear more about and I will use your input to determine what applications to explain, review and discuss.

    I am new to the Kubuntu and Linux world. It’s frustrating (because I am so good with troubleshooting windows for myself and anyone else) not knowing what to do now. But it’s a challenge and I am willing to learn.

    Your articles and how-to’s have been priceless. There are many out there but they almost always forget to explain something small. Something that isn’t really a big deal to them but to such a newbie like me slows me down for days.

    I like how much people are willing to help in forums all over. Its great. The problem is that solutions are usually scattered all around.

    The issues with licensing (flash and mp3 as examples) are things that make it difficult for people to switch to linux. Especially those not computer literate. That is the one thing holding most people back. Things are changing though.

    Nice not having to purchase software. 🙂

    Thanks again for all the info and the way you explain things makes it easy to understand for anyone.

    Oh, one more thing. The Perfectbuntu script was priceless!!!! Why didn’t I find that before!
