Got them....   it's now installed.  It was the double click.  Thanks everyone for the various commands....   and correct 
syntax for them.  I'll have to start saving these, or find an "Ubuntu for Dummies" book....    Is there a command manual for 
people like me who is not all that knowledgeable?

I used to do Dos a little, and could program batch files and I even programed a little Q&A game once....   this is somewhat 
like dos...   but that was in my Windows 3.5 days....   <sigh>

Anyway, I'm wanting to learn...

Thanks again everyone.
