So I'm a complete newbie to Ubuntu, and not a programmer at all. Can anyone tell me how to install LogJam? Thanks in advance.|
open terminal window.
Type "sudo apt-get install logjam." Hit "y" for "yes" when prompted.
Where do I have to download LogJam to, first?
apt-get will do it all for you. It'll hit the Ubuntu repository, download logjam and any other software that logjam depends on, and install it all for you.
Oh, and you'll have to type your password--the same one you use to log in--when it prompts you. Forgot that little bit.
There's probably a way to do it using Ubuntu Software Center, but as an old-school Unix person, it's easier for me to just open a terminal window and do a bit of typing.
Ah, cool. So the terminal method is easier than it sounds. Thanks!
Yeah, the terminal is often easier than the GUI once you learn how to use it effectively. I find typing a one-line command easier than figuring out how to do what I want if what I want is buried several menus deep.
I do like Ubuntu for its ease of configuration, though. I come from the days when you had to open text configuration files in /etc/ in your favorite text editor and hack those files by hand. That gets kinda tiresome after a while.
... or if you're not comfortable with the terminal yet: Go to the Ubuntu Software Centre, search for logjam, click install.
Oh hey, that's a lot easier. Thanks!
Thank you for this. I was in the same boat. I was a former Semagic user, where Semagic used to run fine via Wine/PlayonLinux, but that no longer worked and I was panicking. Thanks so much for helping those of us who only know how to do Synaptec or Software Updater! (My dear friend, the computer guru, does all my computer building and repair work; but he lives over two hours away, and it's difficult to do these things in real time over the phone.)
Sadly it looks like Logjam has been removed from Ubuntu Wily. I made some attempts at compiling from source. I've been able to compile it successfully but haven't been able to use it to post.

Re: how to install LogJam?
Well thank you. I'd actually progressed to needing to know how to configure it for Dreamwidth, but thank you anyway.
Hey, do you know how I'd go about configuring it for Dreamwidth?

Sorry, I do not familiar with this question. Perhaps you can ask Google?
