Gerald, I believe you are missing the dash between boinc and manager, like: boinc-manager

Gerald Marquardt (duby) said : #5

Mike--i did that and it loaded more info but did not open the program--i am a real old house painter-66- trying to learn this. I donate all my cpu cycles to WCG and would like to get away from windows--one thing we need is for a better way to install programs--this is the only problem i am having--i love Ubuntu
