Basically I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a basic desktop that I had laying around. And for the life on me I cannot get it to connect to the internet. No matter what I do, It always gives me the "Failure to fetch" Then a url when I try to
sudo apt-get update
Also, I see a lot of people talking about opening certain windows, and going into certain settings, but I have none of that. Just a command line.
As you can tell I am extremely new to this. I would really appreciate someone pointing me to somewhere I can learn about this. I don't want someone to explain it to me, I would prefer if someone just walked me through where they go to solve their problems. I apologize if this is an improper post, but I would want to learn it myself (teach a man to fish and all that).
Or if you know of any good walk through using command line, I would appreciate it.
Thank you very much!!
