This may be a stupid or trivial question, but I am new to Ubuntu, and have two unsolved problems (flashplayer doesn't play, and scanner doesn't work - in virgin install 13.04), so I started to search in documentation. In the 13.04 specific web site I was browsing the hardware section, and came across something like this: "Open Dash, and select Disk Utilities".
So what is Dash, and where is Disk Utilities?
The application finder could not find any of those. In terminal the "dash" command seems to invoke some sort of a shell.
