Alternatively, if you really are trying to ask how to do something in Ubuntu, please edit your question to explain in much greater detail what you are trying to accomplish. We might close this question ...but if you edit it so it's clearly on-topic, you can comment (or even flag your question) to ask that it be reopened. –  Eliah Kagan Sep 28 '12 at 8:18
