Having problems with your HP Mini 1000 Netbook ?

Msn? I have a HP mini 1110nr netbook, and i cant figure out how to install any programs on it. It comes with a built-in webcam, but the pidgin program for instant messaging on the computer does not support web-chat, so u can only take pics of yourself with the webcam. I tried to download msn, but because this netbook has a kernal linux o/s, you cant run executable files like within windows, i even tried to download another program called song bird, which is supposed to be similar to itunes for l

As far as I know you cant launch the terminal in Mini
Well , right you are , pidgin does not support webchat.

You can definately run executables in linux, its just a little different from the way windows does it.

From what I can find about the interface for your OS, there should be an application launcher that you can use to browse to the program you downloaded. Even then it may not be compatible with the kernel you are running.

If you cant get to it that way you will have to open a terminal.

Fn-F2 brings up a command line where you can launch the terminal.

Depending on how it is setup, it should take you to a prompt in you /home directory.

You can then execute the file you downloaded by typing in ./filename

If that program you tried doesnt work , here is another that may.
