First I've got to say that I am very new to ubuntu and linux but I would love to learn more about it. So this is my first setup. I'm using an Apple macbook from 2008 with Ubuntu 12.04. (120Gb apple os snowlion, 80Gb ubuntu)
When I start my system and I choose to start ubuntu the system boots quite fast. But after one minute or so I get a system error. Ubuntu asks me if I would like to send the diagnostic info to their debug center. How can I find out what is wrong? Is that do-able for a linux starter?
In my house I also have a pogoplug device for filesharing. On the website of pogoplug I can find the program needed for installation. When I download the 32bit *.tar.gz and try to open it with ubuntusoftwarecenter I get an error saying that Ubuntu Software Center can not open this file... How do I fix this. Is there a better way to install this third party software?
