    Urgent

    Hi again..I just got my seedbox info. For the record, seedhost.eu is excellent. But there is a small problem...
    I can't do anything.I don't know HOW!!
    So I REALLY need your help. As I said before this is my first time. I have NO linux experience/knowledge! I thought "Come on how hard can it be? I'll read some tutorials guides, whatever it takes..". Well SHIT. 3 hours now and I have done NOTHING. What I 've done so far:
    Managed to login with Putty.
    Managed to login with VNC.
    Thats it! Nothing else..I was following this guide:
    NaQ's Complete Setup Guide for Linux Seedboxes (Fedora Core/CentOS/Debian/Ubuntu)
    but its no use. I'm moving blindly! HELP people. I'm so angry with myself.

    UPDATE: I made it this far: 6. Setup uTorrent & WebUI

    Now there is this. I'm connecting with VNC but there is nothing there but the background! No taskbar, no nothing! Right click does nothing at all..

    I really hope that someone from you will help me and I'll even seed for him/her. I share the box..Anything. Just to get me started so next month I be able to do it myself.
    Waiting eagerly for answers..
    The seedbox has Ubuntu Desktop 7.04.

    learning about linux isn't something that comes overnight ... take a break ... sleep on it... come back tomorrow and keep trudging along...

    you stick with it you learn and things get easier

    OK I cant run Xterm so I typed the commands to start Utorrent in Wine to Putty. Check this out..It seems that some driver is missing..Here is what it says..
    Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded.
    Make sure that your X server is running and that $DISPLAY is set correctly.
    and when i type firefox it says:
    (firefox-bin:16539): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:


    Hey guys the main problem is I don't have any icons and no taskbar...Isn't this a classic Ubuntu problem..I'm googling many different phrases but I don't understand anything from what I read..What can I do?

    hmmm. I purchased a seedbox from him (seedbox option, not dedicated server) and everything was already set up to use. (VNC, ftp, WebUI). Which option did you pick?

    I also bought(hired) a box a couple of hours ago. I bought a dedicated, i like to set things up by myself and maybe learn something in the process.
    Hoping for some nice speeds when i get the box! Very exited!

    So guys, I sorted out most of the problem and have gotten bit of familiar with linux. Still a lot to learn thought. What I'm concerned now is FTP! I still have been able to transfer files from/to my computer. I have really fucked things up. First I donwloaded a lot of FTP programs..But they were not servers, so I talked to dancefor and he said use proFTPD. So I did..Here 's my story.
    I installed it from Add/Remove Apps from the applications menu. I installed the GPROFTPD the GUI server..At first I tried to make the settings myself..Nothing
    Then I found a guide for it tried it...nothing
    Then I found another more detailed guide from ubuntu forums...guess what..NOTHING

    So I have applied I ton of commands from 2 different guides on one system as well as all the messing I did myself. Thats why I believe that no matter what you tell me now, I'm a very special case and no general guides are gonna work simply because A LOT of settings have already been changed. I hope you understand what I mean..

    Here's a question in all that..Any other way to transfer my files from/to my computer besides FTP?
    If not, then if I use a different server (suggest one if it exists!!?!) will all these matter?
    What I have in mind right now, is really not a good idea but if I have no other choice...
    1)MSN Single file transfer
    2)upload bit by bit on a hosting site and then download them from my computer..

    I told you I only have BAD ideas lately ("Oh, I think I'm gonna go with Linux"....SHIT)
    So any other way?
