Thanks to both of you but my knowledge of Linux is about to be 
displayed. I followed the first reply and typed the command into the run 
command on the pop up menu and nothing happened. I then went to the file 
by going thru utilities/kate. when file came yp I right clicked and the 
drop down menu did not have "actions" on it. Is there someplace I can 
get a book or written instructions about Kubuntu. If I am going to run 
it, I need to be able to handle problems like this. thanks
