Just transferred over from Windows, and am running xUbuntu. I'm a total idiot with linux, and I need help installing even the most basic programs.Here's my question;
How do I "Navigate" To the window in terminal? I type in the directory in terminal (home/etc/etc/etc...) and it says that no such directory exsists. This is a bother when I attempt to install programs.

Navigation is accomplished via the cd (change directory) command.

i.e.
cd /home/username/directory
Also
~/ is a shortcut for your home directory i.e /home/username
Just typing in the cd followed by the enter key will automatically change to your home directory.
