Hi! I’m a pretty new user of anything not-Windows and I’m in the process of fully migrating to a Lubuntu (laptop) and Kubuntu (desktop pc) enviroment. I’m mostly making sure everything matches (cloud storage, calendar, e-mail, that sorta stuff).
I’m having trouble with two things, and I would appreciate a little bit if help:
1) How installing/uninstalling programs works: I installed MEGAsync frome their site and when I wanted to uninstall it later, but it didn’t show up on Discover or Muon. I read the wiki but it was not helpful about this situation.
I posted on the Lubuntu subreddit and a kind person instructed me to do
sudo apt purge megasync
and that worked. Is this a recurrent issue or am I doing something wrong? Should I get more familiarized with the terminal commands?
I’m trying to pitch in Lubuntu to a classmate who has a really old laptop that gets stucked when barely opening a browser, but she’s not computer literate so now I’m not sure if it would be a viable solution.
2) Is there a device/hardware manager? Right from the get to I don’t have anything to see my devices, check RAM size, or even to see my disk space and how much is occupied.
I followed this video to install something calld Jockey or the Gnome device manager, and the terminal says they were installed, but they don’t show up on the application menu. And again, they don’t show up on Discover or Muon.
Am I greatly missing something?
Again, I’m pretty new to this, I’m trying to stick to Lubuntu because my crappy laptop flies with it.
I appreciate any help or input, have a great tuesday!
