Tips for newbies on Moblin
A few tips
You have installed Moblin or got a new netbook with Moblin on it and you have got past the fancy dancy button things; sorted your wireless; got some sounds and your mp3s are banging?
If not see my archive posts
So a few tips to help you on your way
If like me you tried Moblin or are still on a live pen drive you will be scratching around thinking what is my password for the terminal or to do any admin work.
If you have installed the system it was the password you entered twice during that installation.
If you are still running a live pen drive then hit Alt + f2 and in a terminal type
a password input will come up
That will be your password!
I am sure it is that by default but it worked for me! After a long while of messing about
Where are all my files etc?
Your files are in a home folder which you can access by hitting Alt + f2 and type file browser
This opens up your file browser
Looks easy but believe me late at night, after a large glass of vino collapso..logic and ease are not best friends with me!
What is with all this Alt + F2?
You can access your applications in the main console on the top row next to zones, internet with your mouse or pointer or sometimes more quickly by hitting the alt key next to your space bar and the F2 button on the top of your keyboard.
This automatically fires up the application chooser
