comment How are .so files used in Ubuntu
@DavidColson Typically when you build from source, and do ./configure make make --install (or whatever the command strings are for that make file), it has a script to automatically install to wherever it will check for the script(s) and libraries. Although there are programs which don't install themselves anywhere correctly.

There isn't. You have not choice but to utilize the software center.

@Thompson I've updated the answer accordingly, to have the "How to install the GetDeb Repos" included.

I think you need to add the GetDeb repos first, i forgot to give you a link to that. You could always build from source, too, for wiican.

comment Trojan in Ubuntu? DigiNotar
Correct me if I'm wrong, but Wine isnt part of the main default installations, no? If you're running default Ubuntu, the likelihood of you running Wine (unless you upgraded, and you had Wine installed) is low, no?

comment Trojan in Ubuntu? DigiNotar
I thought trojans under Win32 will only affect an Ubuntu installation if Wine is installed?

comment How to contact an Ubuntuforum administrator?
Join #ubuntuforums on IRC (irc.freenode.net), an admin might be able to help if they're on.. Ask Ubuntu can't really help much with the forums.

comment Authentication Password to install Adobe to stream movies 11.10 system
Reinstall? I'll bet you your University will allow you to download the ISO on one of their local-network systems. If you have another system around, burn the 11.10 (or 12.04) ISO to a USB device. Then, boot on that laptop with the USB running the ISO, and clean-install.

comment Is any version of Ubuntu compatible with Lenovo R60?
@MerwinJames if you do a default install, it should automatically set up a swap partition, even if you set it up as a dual boot.

@MerwinJames I posted my Lubuntu suggestion as an answer, just for the record :p

comment Is any version of Ubuntu compatible with Lenovo R60?
no, i'm just stating from my opinions as a technician. Personally, Ubuntu 12.04 with 2d Unity, or gnome-shell or gnome-fallback is somewhat lightweight enough for older machines. But Lubuntu is just a bit more streamlined for lower-powered systems (again, from my experience)

Try Lubuntu, it might work better. Also, the 10.x series will be EOL in a couple of years (the only supported one is 10.04)

I would be careful using Ubuntu, if anything Lubuntu would run better, because of the memory requirements being lower. Ubuntu might eat up all your memory. Whichever you isntall, you should make a decent-sized SWAP partition (> 3GB In my opinion) in case your RAM is overused.
