    I don't know. You might try the Ubuntu Support Forums.

    #2 how can i make my screen resolution in wide screen formate and a lot higher

    You need to install the Nvidia drivers in order to get higher resolutions.

    #3 how do you install new themes and were can i find new themes

    Themes and other goodies are available here --> http://art.gnome.org/

    #4 my Internet speed seems a lot slower then when on windows i now take a lot longer to load pages

    Hmm... what browser are you using? FireFox?

    #5 how can i setup up nvidia GPU in Linux

    Install Nvidia drivers - see #2 above.

    The easiest way to install many applications and drivers for your Ubuntu is to install and run Automatix. You can find it here:

    Automatix will also install your Nvidia drivers for you.

    Enjoy! :)

    It is impossible to install or remove any software. Please use the package manager "Synaptic" or run "sudo apt-get install -f" in a terminal to fix this issue at first.
    yes it tells you but how do i fix it in Synaptic

    Hi Dev,

    If you're very new to Linux operating systems, Ubuntu is one of the best distributions you can try. However, it still has a steep learning curve. If you don't get help here from some of the other folks, try the Ubuntu Support Forums (they're usually very busy) or another favorite of mine, Scot's Newsletter Forums - All Things Linux.

    Luck!
