However, here is a line from a Wikipedia article-Linux Adoption: The Linux Counter uses an alternate method of estimating adoption, asking users to register and then using a mathematical model to estimate the total number of desktop users. In November 2014 this ...

You should first check that the directory still exists and still contains your data and if it does, save it in an other folder before doing anything. My suggestion for that would be: Use ls -l ~ and ls -l ~/Downloads If you don't find it, try using locate Downloads If you find it and it as the data save it somewhere using cp -r Once this is done, you ...

I'll quote google's answer: To run Ubuntu from a USB stick, the first thing you need to do is insert a USB stick with at least 2GB of free space into your PC.

After checking my internet using the simple ping google.com command on my terminal, I learnt that I was experiencing about 3% data packet loss. I would suggest using the Firefox plugin 'Downthemall' or equivalent for Chrome. This way you can pause and restart your downloads when they stop receiving packets. Thanks to all the help on the comments!

Steam didn't work for me either from the Software Centre. I just used sudo apt-get install steam. This just worked.

When I say "run" I'm referring to running the command in Terminal which can be opened by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T Try running sudo apt-get install steam That should work, if not try this (adapted from the Steam Github README): run sudo apt-get install gdebi-core run wget -O ~/steam.deb https://media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam.deb. run sudo gdebi ...

Your question is not related to apt-get at all. Oracle-java9-installer has an installation script that downloads java from Oracle site and installs it. It is very specific to this package. But your answer is: the tarball is at /var/cache/oracle-jdk9-installer/
