- How do I install Ubuntu? 2 answers
OK, I downloaded ubuntu-16.04-desktop-amd64.iso
Why it has amd64 in the name confuses me.
And I don't know what to do with the file. I really don't care to bother with a CD of any kind. What I was expecting was a file I would click and then it would download more data. When done a window would pop up about executing a program that would install. Then I expected the usual screens as shown in the Installation Guide.
I was hoping to put any expanded files or install on a thumb drive and skip a CD altogether.
So, what do I do with this image file?
