The extent of my knowledge goes something like, "*wants to download chrome but ubuntu software center isn't available. *Does 5-10 google searches and establishes that downloading a zip file from google is the first step -or- copies and pastes some code into terminal that starts with...
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install...
...*copies and pastes 3 or 4 more command lines, maybe changes a directory or two using the GUI and voila, the icon is in the menu!" Thats about it.
After trying to run through this routine with a few programs on http://www.rtl-sdr.com/big-list-rtl-sdr ... -software/ i've come to the short-tempered, noob conclusion that sdr probably hasn't reached my part of the bell-curve yet, if you catch my thinly veiled psych reference. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bell_Curve Nevermind that last link, it's not relevant.
Do I just have to wait for this? Is there something I can pay for? do you have a single link that will effortlessly solve all my problems? All excessive levity aside, I can take any bad news.
