I am very grateful for this suggestion. I start to get very nervous at
this stage as downloading applications and installing them has seldom

Linux. Even knowing which file to download confuses me. Binaries and
packages or source archive? Therefore reading the documentation is
pointless as I do not know the basics.
For example this web page
presents me with too many options because I lack the experience to know
if I should be downloading
from the distro specific link. Which ever one it is I would not know
what to do next.

that this will take several postings but I am likely to learn from the
Wait to hear
