OK thanks. How do I transfer data from my old computer (with Windows) to my new (with Ubuntu)? I was hoping via CD but retrieving data from the CD Drive in Ubuntu appears impossible. Email maybe the only way but there is a limit.

Your CD drive isn't working? Is this an internal drive? What happens when you put in a CD?

The CD Drive is working. The only thing I've put into it is the DVD to install Ubuntu. Unlike Windows, Ubuntu does not have a D Drive where I can retrieve data from. I don't know what will happen if I put in a CD containing text or spreadsheet documents, hence my question.

When you put a CD into the drive, Ubuntu will display a icon in the menu bar, as well as displaying the location in the file browser (nautilus). In Windows the drive always displays, even when it is empty, but in Ubuntu it only displays when there is a disc in the drive. Check it out.

OK, thanks. I've downloaded and installed Ubuntu again, but still no Wine or Winetricks. I've also checked for Virtualbox but nothing.

I've downloaded Wine from http://linux.softpedia.com/get/System/Em...l#download then copied it to a CD, inserted into my new laptop, and it shows as wine-1.9.9.tar.bz2 but I don't know what to do with it.

I've also downloaded Virtualbox from http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/OS-E...l#download then copied it to the same CD, inserted into my new laptop, and it shows as VirtualBox-5.0.20-106931-Win.exe but I don't know what to do with that either.

I do wish I could move ahead on Ubuntu.

The first link was just a result from searching Google for "Ubuntu 16.04 install Wine". Search for it and I'm sure you'll see the proper link.

As for not knowing what to do with the Virtualbox instructions, it sounds like you are blown away with terminal usage, and that's normal for a new Linux user. Windows almost never requires using the terminal, but in Linux you use it for many reasons, and it is powerful. I think what you should do is try to find a book at the library or watch some training videos on Ubuntu. Udemy.com has some nice Ubuntu videos, and there are probably many on YouTube. I would probably not be able to walk you through the installation of Wine and Virtualbox in a way that helped you understand what you were doing without writing a small book.

Have you used the terminal yet?

I tried this link and it works fine:

Must have been fixed?

I right clicked the desktop and found "Open Terminal" among others.

I've tried "sudo apt-get install wine" which returned "Unable to locate package wine"
I also tried "sudo apt-get install virtualbox" which returned "sudu: command not found"

Quite frankly, I do not like Ubuntu. I am spending far more time with Ubuntu, than I have been wasting with Windows 7 & 10.

My mission is to build a website that is simple. It would be nice if I could find an Operating System that is simple. Is there a Linux distribution that is simple?

Maybe I should download Windows XP.

It appears as if the forum organizer has an automatic shortener of URLs.

1) Opened up terminal - Good
2) Typed in commands that were not in the instructions provided by links - Bad

Ubuntu is considered one of the more user friendly distros for beginners, but many people like Linux Mint, so you might give that a shot. Honestly though, if you're having a hard time just installing Wine and Virtualbox, there's little chance that you'll be successful setting up the whole dev environment.

Windows XP is dead. You'd at least want to use 7.
