- How to install Ubuntu on VirtualBox? 3 answers
I would like to use Ubuntu on a virtual machine so that I can run an open source engineering software called OpenFoam.
I need instructions for a layperson. I didn't know what a virtual machine was two days ago, I don't know what an image file is, etc. I'm used to downloading software and using it.
Every website I visit that claims that its instructions are for "dummies" provides instructions that I don't understand.
I thought I'd just click on the orange 64 bit button on the Ubuntu website for 13.10, that it would download and that I'd somehow install it on a virtual machine. That download looks like it would take 10+ hours.
Can anyone help me with lay-language?
