  1. I am new to the Linux world. I have just got a little notebook, a Lenovo Ideapad 10e which, by reason of the Intel Atom CPU, is definitely 32 bit only. I installed Zorin 15 Lite 32 bit and it now runs OK. The default Firefox browser is quite slow. Would like some advice about attempting to load and run Opera if possible.

    This has absolutely no application at all, anywhere. I have the latest Ubuntu, and everything is a complicated nightmare, nothing works, other than what you get installed in the first place. Tons of all kinds of everything, and when you do get to what is actually applicable, that changes nothing at all.

  5. Got it installed (as directed), does not appear under programs – internet (Linux mint – latest version on a HP 6550 Probook).

    when called from command prompt, it works, yet clunky and slow,

    what went wrong?
