I did find an "about Opera" under file (i think; poor memory unless its in front of me). It did identify paths but not clue as to how to get there. I need a directory of Terminal (non SU) and bash 32 commands.

In Terminal, try typing in

echo $PATH

or maybe echo $path

You can see environmental settings such as path by typing in

I was wondering if you ever received an answer to your post about the path to install the Fash plugin. I'm stuck at the same roadblock.

Help please.

If anyone can help, I am struggling to get the XO onto the net. I have wireless access and other laptops working but I can't get the XO out to the net.

Hi, every one

Firts, I'm sorry for my poor English. I try to express me.
I thought this was a wonderful idea, to made a computer for all children of the wold, expecially the children of the 3er World. But I think that this computer can be every interesting for the students of the 1er world. In Spain, the children go to the school with all the books every day, Then his bag weighs a lot of kilos.

I think this computer can replace the text books, and then, the children will not carry weigh, it will be good for the environment and the parents save money every year when the curs begins and the govern save money too, and ..... only the editorials will not be happy.

I hoppe this project will be succssefull. :idea:
