Description Paul Uit de Bos 2002-12-13 08:47:48 UTC
Description of problem:I am new to Linux so this is an imporatant manual for me The Installation went smooth (I had studied partitioning documentation) thank you. But I spent an embarassing amount of time to get two things done: Shell prompt (Chapter 11) As far as I see there is no mention how to start the shell ...It cost me a lot of time to find "Terminal" in System Tools. The same thing for adding one or more programs to the system. Upgrading is a word that comes to mind but that is not the way to go Updating (Chapter 11) tells a lot about software maintenance. Also the word "package" is very unfamiliar to Windows users and only after some time I realised that it is a program file. So finally I found "Packages" in System Settings. So maybe a few sentences in these chapters will help others. Paul Uit de Bos Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info:

> Also the word "package" is very unfamiliar to Windows users and only after some > time I realised that it is a program file. > So finally I found "Packages" in System Settings. I agree with this. An [RFE] should be created to call the link "Install and Remove Software Packages" _or_ "Install and Remove Software Programs". The word "package" in itself is ambiguous to the new user unfamiliar with package management and it may be useful to add a few words to help them steer along.

this looks like a UI issue to me. Re-assigning.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-08 20:59:30 UTC
I tend to agree it should be "Add/Remove Software", so it's a windows ripoff, it does work.
