First day using Linux (Ubuntu) everything is confusing.

Post by Zugwig » 17 Apr 2020, 19:02

Hey, i thought it would be a fun time to learn something new so i picked up a copy of ubuntu and put it on an old PC i had lying about.

Problem is i have no idea what the hell is going on.

I'm trying to install NZBget and i think its installed but i'm unable to get to the webhost and when i try typing /nzbget commands into the terminal nothing happens.

could anyone help me out with this i know its fairly simple but ive spent like 6hrs today trying to get even the basic things done and my head hurts haha.

Thank you.

When typing nzbget commands you must type the full path to nzbget-binary. For example "/home/user/nzbget/nzbget -s". If you are already in the directory containing nzbget binary you can use dot "." as a reference to current directory. For example "./nzbget" will execute "nzbget" from current directory.

If that doesn't help try to read some Linux tutorials or books.
