I'm simply trying to run through this fix http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1390979


But I'm not getting very far. Where do I unpack the files to? And once I've edited the wl_linux.c file, how do I compile it?


I'm new to Ubuntu and I've been at this for days now, here's my previous issue before I ended up with this one http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1696593

I thought Linux based software was supposed to be reasonably trouble free? I've been trying to get my laptop up and running for close to a week now, I had less trouble with Windows!

Turns out I was being a numpty. It was far more straight forward than I was giving it credit for... half my battle was realising the difference between relative and absolute command lines.

All sorted.
