Great! Good to meet other Linux users. The version of Fuse included can be out of date if you are using 18.04. The Fuse team started distributing the latest versions via FlatPak. It's really easy to do on Ubuntu and gaurentees the latest version.

PM me if you want detailed instructions.

ok thanks
I used to use other versions of linux

Ubuntu stops me from installing a windows program from DVD a macromedia thing
I think its because ubuntu stops certain files being copied onto hard disk

so i would prefer a different version but ubuntu is ok :)

You won't be able to install Windows software on Linux (unless you use WINE) or similar.
