How to remove fonts from Ubuntu and other stuff?
« on: March 14, 2010, 10:08:14 AM »
I have tried using Synaptic Package Manager. I suppose what I am really asking is: How to navigate to the particular font or even the package where the font may lie.
I have installed 9.10 with my existing Vista and although I have only been "fiddling" for a couple of days I am beginning to feel that perhaps I could continue with Ubuntu - I seem to be able to do all the things I could previously. I seem to have got my hardware working OK (3 printers; a little flatbed scanner; Logitech Camera/mic., etc.). I am getting to grips with Open Office/GNU Money and generally feeling my way around. However, I have another question:
If I do something wrong is there something like System Restore on Ubuntu 9.10?

Thanks joe12
That really helps! I particularly like the links to the backing-up process. I am beginning to feel a little more confident with Ubuntu 9.10 in fact I haven't been back to Vista for a few days now. However, I am still a little wary of entering the "terminal" at the moment - but I will soon.
Many years ago I used a Unix dedicated system within the "pre-press" industry and found it the best system we ever had! But that was a while back and the whole system was devoted to pre-press, so I am not too daunted by codes and commands. But of course, I have never used them within a operating system/pc environment.
Thanks for your help
