So, long story short I have been a user of Windows since I can remember. I forcefully had to switch to Ubuntu the last few days because of a long-winded issue dealing with my Windows/key. But we will not focus on that.
I want to really give Ubuntu a chance. I know it can be a good OS. Problem is, while I am willing to learn and understand, I am also as clueless as a newborn baby to this and I need some serious help, tutorials, walk-through.
I am also in a slight panic because in order to install Ubuntu, my brother had to take out my graphics card because we kept getting a gray screen. Once that was out and my monitor was connected to my on-board graphics, we had no issues with install.
Alright, so once I do get a basic rundown of what I am doing, I still have the issue of I cannot figure out how to download/install programs. I was looking at installing Wine so I hope I can install Battle.net and being able to play WoW as well as being able to use my Photoshop. I was hoping to have it done before Thursday since the new WoW expansion is releasing, but I know that may not be possible right now until I get my graphics card back in and working with Ubuntu, and also get Wine figured out.
So, when I use Ubuntu Software Center to try to install Wine, I get an error: "Failed to download repository information" - Please check your Internet connection. Details lists a bunch of code.
When I look on WIneHQ's website, it has a section that states:
"Open the Software Sources menu by launching the Ubuntu Software Center and selecting Edit->Software Sources. Choose the Other Software tab and click Add."
Problem is, I don't see an "Edit". So I am a bit frustrated. So help on figuring this out and any other basic information would be amazing. I really do want to give Ubuntu a chance and I don't have the funds to fork out to get Windows again right now so I figured it is best to make of what I have and just go with it.
