I just purchased a computer with Ubuntu from the University. They said it was freshly installed. I would like to stream media and watch DVD's for one thing. I tried to install Adobe, but I need a password to Authenticate. I rebooted the system and went to where I saw root@ubuntu:~#. It gave no options, just a flashing cursor. Any help? Sudo is already installed.
