Hi everyone!

I'm a complete newbie when it comes to Linux, so please bear with me. Thank you.

Here's a copy of my terminal session - why can't I install Geekbench? Could one of you gurus take a look please?

I'm running UbuntuGNONE if that's of any importance.

Thank you very much for your help.

Steve
