Hi :)

Look up at the top taskbar and see the "System" menu up there :) I think you have found it already tho :)

Every install of Ubuntu really needs someone to work through the Medibuntu worksheet to sort their multimedia
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Medibuntu
this deals with copyright issues and prepares the way for other multimedia devices to be added to the system. I tend to keep the non-free components until i am completely happy with the way the machine is running, then i think about going completely OpenSource later.

You might also like to bookmark this link for looking a few things up although we would generally prefer you asked us questions in here

Another good forum to ask questions in is

Good luck and regards from
Tom :)
