OK now I am getting frustrated I have got my hardwired into my modem miles from the desired location I have had to take the screen off my other desktop pc too!!!
I am now online but I don't understand how to start the synaptic update manager I have just done a handfull of updates through the terminal but in Ubuntu I had a nice window with descriptions for each update I also had something appear and tell me to install my graphics card driver but I get none of that here in Kubuntu.
Can I add synaptic to my menu bar if so can someone tell me how?
Also where do I go to install my graphics card driver?
And my wirelss adapter is still not working
please help a desperate man, I have a copy of Windows MCE arrive today, it's sitting on my desk and is meant to be a last resort and the temptation is becoming hard to resist!!!!!!!
