    ndiswrapper does not exist on my system

    Am I the only poor sap that cannot find ndiswrapper on my system. I'm trying to install a wireless adapter and need ndiswrapper to do so. However, whenever I attempt to follow instructions posted on how to do it, the program does not exist. I can't find it in the synaptic package manager and it is not listed in programs to add. I think I must have gotten a defective install! . More likely is that I'm doing something wrong, which is too bad because I was having no problems with my Ubuntu install until now.

    Cool Re: ndiswrapper does not exist on my system

    Code:
    locate ndiswrapper
    If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.

    As far as I know, you need to install ndiswrapper--it doesn't come with Ubuntu by default.

    download ndiswrapper and save to your Home folder.

    Code:

    Then open the terminal:

    Code:
    tar xvf ndiswrapper-1.51.tar.gz
    Code:
    pushd ndiswrapper-1.51
    Code:
    sudo make uninstall
    Code:
    make
    Code:
    sudo make install
    Code:
    popd
    Then Ndiswrapper should be installed.
    Got the tutorial from http://ph.ubuntuforums.com/showthrea...=766529&page=6

    What repositories do you have enabled?
    Google and forums taught me most of what I know
    Ubuntu Rocks!
