Default Use software center

Dear friend,

Search in software center and if available install the required software from there. Open office is available in software center. Actually Libre office is available in Ubuntu by default. Libre office is same as Open office. You can use Libre office.


regards and happy computing.

Default Help?: Cannot Connect Wireless!

Where do I get the drivers to make the Wireless connector work for Ubuntu Lucid Lynx 10.04? I've upgraded since we last communicated about How To Install software for Hardy Heron 8.04.
