    Question Installıng a prınter drıver

    Hı, I'm new to Ubuntu, so ıt may be a basıc questıon.

    I've just downloaded a drıver for Phaser 7760.

    I read the “readme” and says:
    run setup within the install directory as root to install the driver.
    What does that mean?

    enter the directory of the file you downloaded. So if I downloaded a file called abc to my desktop I would need to enter the directory by
    Code:
    cd Desktop/abc
    then type
    Code:
    sudo -s
    to run as root for that terminal session. (After installing return to normal user)
    or if you are wanting root privileges for just a few commands you can type sudo before the terminal command to gain root privileges.

    You can find out more about sudo by typing
    Code:
     man sudo
    or

    run setup within the install directory as root to install the driver.

    It means you should start a terminal and go to the directory where Phaser is installed. Most likely that directory is the very directory where the readme file is so check the path to that. Then, in a terminal type:
    Code:
    cd </full/path/to/readme/>
    Then check whether the setup file is present
    Code:
    ls ./setup*
    If the output includes "setup" or "setup.sh" you are probably in the correct directory. Then, still in that directory, run setup as root (sudo) to install the driver:
    Code:
    sudo ./setup
    That should work. If you get lost, post more details.
