I'm new to Ubuntu and while browsing over forums I saw goto System > Administration and so on. So I wanna know how I can actually goto System, means where can I find System then Administration and so on?

what do you actually want to achieve through "Administrator"? Also, what version of Ubuntu are you using? Are you running Gnome shell? To find out, open terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) and then type in echo $DESKTOP_SESSION and hit enter. Generally, system administration is through Applications>System tools in Ubuntu 11.10 with gnome-panel. You can also click your user name (top right corner) and get system settings. –  drN Oct 28 '12 at 15:54

Click on the home/start button of your keyboard or on the icon on the side called as "dash home". It will present you with what is called as dash. It is like a search option. Type what ever you want to search in your system here. In your case type "System" in the search bar. It will show you all the applications documents etc having a word "system" in them. Select the required application and there you go.

PS : This solution works only you are in Unity. Not in a fallback/old version of gnome shell that is available through gnome-panel for 11.04 and above.

You might want to add that your answer works when you are in Unity. Not in a fallback/old version of gnome shell that is available through gnome-panel for 11.04 and above. –  drN Oct 28 '12 at 16:09

@dhruv Click your name (top right in case you use gnome-shell) system settings>hardware drivers –  drN Oct 28 '12 at 16:14

As of 12.10: see the Additional Drivers tab in the Software Sources menu.

enter image description here

In case of AMD you will see different drivers here.

You can get there from the normal places like Ubuntu Software Center (it is in the options at the top left)
