I just installed Ubuntu 12.10 and I am BRAND new to the whole ubuntu thing. I installed it alongside windows and it opened up just fine but when i go through certain pages, like in the ubuntu software center, some of the pictures and text take on a strange staticy appearance. Any idea whats wrong?
Ubuntu comes with an app called Screenshot, use it to take a picture of the error and post it in your question. I will try to answer still.
What I believe you mean is that some of the icons in the Ubuntu Software Center look blurred or pixelated. Take for example this screen shot:
This isn't a bug or anything, it is simply that the icon is displayed too large or at a low resolution, thus the image becomes pixelated (this is sometimes done purposely for special effect).
