i can install form the software center but when i download a program on line i get something like this.
gedit has not been able to detect the character coding.
Please check that you are not trying to open a binary file.
Select a character coding from the menu and try again.
I know ZERO about using linux, using it to support the free software movement.
So i figured that gedit might not be the thing to use.. but i dont know what to use..
Ps I dont uderstand the super brainy jargon.. go easy..
im using ubuntu 9.10
