I am brand new to Linux, just installed Kubuntu 9.04. The sound works when I start up the computer, but I don't get sound via the browsers.
Also, I just wanted to download a jpg file, received via e-mail. I get error messages, saying the comp does not recognise the file.
I'd appreciate some hints of what to do.
And please allow me to be a bit dumb as a total beginner.
