Let's suppose for the moment that you thought I am one of the dont-known-how-to-do-a-sudo-apt-get-update-and-I-want-to-do-everything-with-my-mouse whiners, which I agree that are lazy oafs who cannot be bother to do a ls -l | grep "cairo".

But I am not considering myself such a newbie - although I admit I earn my living on Win32 land, I have enough experience also on Mac (Tiger up) and Linux (back in the RH 7.2 days).
What I am saying is that I have to KNOW where, for example, libflashplayer.so resides, when I want to install Flash on Epiphany (and that's only from this morning). My statement is "why I have to know where the goddamn file is - /etc/bin? /usr/bin? /tmp? /home/user ? - and why the setup does not take care about this.
And guess what: there is no viewer (?) for the file when I tried to install.

So let's continue (what I enumerate here are my adventures since last Saturday trying to put a distro on my netbook):
- Debian net install: too bad your wireless is TKIP, we do only WEP. Ok, I didn't knew this, was somewhere hidden in the docs. My bad. Net cable install. Package fail. Finally I get Debian running. Slow as hell, abort.
- Linux Mint 12 LXDE install. Ok, first time saw, didn't like it particularily. How do I change to Gnome (2) ? You can't. Ok, my bad.
- Ubuntu 12.10 x64. Install flawless using USB iso. Let's install Mac Lion theme. Added ppa, install step 7 of 12 or so. sudo apt-get install mac-osx-lion-theme-v2. Ah, there is no such package. Although documented. Ok, this is not official, so maybe someone trashed the ppa content on the other side.
- Let's get browsing. Install Epiphany, Arora, Midori. No Flash. Try to install. No luck (see above). I need to have a viewer (asked by sudo -i) for a .so. I don't know what is a lib viewer, neither do I care. I want a setup running. Guess is too much for configure/make/make install type of guys.
- Cairo Dock (my favorite). Appears and dissapears random. Succeeded to display 3 modal (?) dialogs at a time. Finally I got rid of it.

Morale: don't jump into insulting me right of the bat. While I admit I am no linux wizard, I am educated enough to read a forum and fire up a console. But if x guys make a setup, it is THEIR job to make it running. Not mine. Otherwise gimme the source and I'll do it myself.

PS. Do you have to know MSI api on Windows to install programs?
