Dear linux users !

I recently installed Ubuntu 12.10 on my laptop.
Now i have a couple of questions:

1 - I installed it with Wubi ( From my windows installation ), I installed it on my E:\ Drive with a 27GB space.
What did Linux made out of it : 73GB .. How did it do that ? or did it just took all unallocated space and made 1 partition out of it ?


2 - I started installing Sublime Text on it, extracted tar.bz2 file and it worked.
But now i have Sublime Text in my Downloads folder.
Which folder is the best to install software to ? At least i geuss there must be somewhere some kind of program files folder or something ^^

3 - Does anyone have a link to a website to get to know the terminal commands?
I think it will be very helpfull to start with linux from the terminal instead of the UI not ? ( Especially since i will be installing a webserver after this experience :) )

Thanks !

Hello Loempiavogel!

Dear linux users !

We have no way of knowing that from the information you have given here. What are the sizes of other partitions, before and after your WUBI install?


2 - I started installing Sublime Text on it, extracted tar.bz2 file and it worked.
But now i have Sublime Text in my Downloads folder.

Well, are there any settings options available on this sublime text app? What did you do to "make it work"? Somewhere there must be a config file, you need to find it and adjust the path in there to match where you want to move the application directory to.

3 - Does anyone have a link to a website to get to know the terminal commands?

Great idea, command line makes you understand what you are doing instead of just clicking stuff.

I can help you with this! ;)

First off, I cannot recommend 12.10 but 12.04
Next, I would not use WUBI and cannot help anyone who does.
Lastly, please read techieMoe's piece on pkg mgt

Just a hardass today. Best wishes!
