March 4th, 2012, 01:03 PM

i'm new in Ubuntu!

i'm trying to install my wireless WUSB300N network adapter,
i've the software for windows, i think...
i tryied to do the thing that "slice of linux" recommended:
But the computer says that doesn't recognize the directory...
i'm in a bucle... please i need help.
i did it:
cd ~/Public/Drivers
bash: cd: /home/belen/Public/Drivers: No existe el archivo o el directorio
belen@belen-N34AS1:~$ sudo ndiswrapper -i netmw245.inf
couldn't open netmw245.inf: No existe el archivo o el directorio at /usr/sbin/ndiswrapper-1.9 line 219.
belen@belen-N34AS1:~$ opt/ndis/:
bash: opt/ndis/:: No existe el archivo o el directorio
belen@belen-N34AS1:~$ #mkdir/opt/ndis
belen@belen-N34AS1:~$ #tar xvf WUSB300N.tar C
belen@belen-N34AS1:~$ /opt/ndis/
bash: /opt/ndis/: No existe el archivo o el directorio

what i can do to install the wireless, i think maybe ubuntu doesn't recognize de cd-rom to.
i don't understand the system already, so i need all the steps, like where is the window or aplication, and what i need to open....

This is being crazy... jejejeje funny and crazy... learning a LOT !

Hugs! Thanks

I have never used Ndiswrapper. I do not speak from experience and I cannot read Spanish.

Do you have Ndiswrapper installed on your system?

Open the Ubuntu Software Centre and search for ndiswrapper. You will be able to install a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for Ndiswrapper that may make it easier.

I am not an expert on using the terminal but I think that this is wrong


It should be

mkdir /opt/ndis

Look at section 3.4 in this link


It is in English. Sorry.

Are you aware of these links?
