Okay well - this page is very cluttered with different things like “New Users! Start here!” which loops you to a page that shows it’s Wiki but an error pops open that says it’s old and that I should click to go to the updated page which wallah - is right back to this page. The moderator has seemingly scolded me for saying that this is a nightmare and closed teh comments.
There is no starting point for a new user that is coming from 10 years of using a macbook and 12 years of using Windows for atotal of 22 years of using a computer. The last time I remember seeing something similar to a command line was when I was 10-12 years old and it’s when we got our first computer - a Gateway 2000. This is also around the last time that I saw the computer that is now on my desk - a ThinkPad.
I’m unable to read through 100’s of pages of documentation for reasons that are of no one on this communities business - and we’ll leave that as it is.
I received this ThinkPad as a gift - and the “Getting Started” Documentation takes you to an install guide. Fedora 33 was already installed.
There is no phone number to call and no way to chat with anyone. I’ve called Lenovo a dozen times and I end up in an ever ending loop which ultimately ends at microsoft support every single time.
I don’t know where else to post and I assume that this too, just like the last post, will be blocked.
This is my last shot before I return the Lenovo and report to the people that i"ve told i’m goign to try open source that they can give it a crack - but it took me two weeks to realize that i needed to just return the lenovo and put my head down as a failed Macbook for life user.
It’s noteworthy that I’m tryign to do the following:
a.) watch a Youtube video for instructions. It fires back an error when I try to and i was told by the Reddit communithy that all I have to do is enable RPM Fusion. HOW!!! So I try to do that and it says I need tos witch users or that i don’t have priveledges to do this and that. At any rate, way too complicated to watch. a. video. on. youtube…
b.) install VirtualBox so I can follow a Udemy course on how to use this. Lets’ start with cracking the Youtube video code and see if we can move onto day 11. Thanks.
