Ubuntu

I have just installed Ubuntu on an old laptop that I was going to dismantle because it had become unstable - works great now! But, does anyone know how to do the following?

1: Uninstall a program

2: Defrag in a similar way as Windows.

Thanks for any help or pointers.

1. Easiest way is System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager and mark the program for removal or cmd line is:
sudo apt-get remove application-name

2. No requirement to defrag as Linux OS doesn't fragment you disk the way Windows does.

Enjoy

Thanks for that info.

Just downloaded the manual, so here starts the learning curve, though everything seems simplier than Windows.

Yes Ubuntu gives a new ease of life to older machines. Until I read #2 about defrag, I had not thought about it! Ubuntu seems to be much more stable on my machines that I have not needed to even consider defragging.
