    Well, it doesn't. You need to know that.

    Where ever you put the downloaded file, you open terminal, go into that folder and execute the commands there. For example, to make it simple, when you download the file it would usually go to your Downloads folder. Open the folder and move the file to your Home folder.

    When you open terminal it opens by default in your home folder, so the file is already there, and you can start executing the commands after you switch to root. If switching to root changes you to the root home folder, go back to yours with:
    cd /home/username

    The cd command is used to change the current folder where you are. You can list folder contents with:
    ls

    That can help you checking which files are in that folder and whether the file you expect to be there is really there.

    sorry for my maybe stupid question, but how would the first command be right if the Driver File would be on my Desktop for example.

    In the Manual they have an USB-Stick.

    Thanks!!

    If the file is on the desktop, first you do the sudo -i to become root and after that you change the folder to:
    cd /home/username/Desktop

    Of course, change 'username' with your username. And Desktop needs to have the first letter in capital, linux makes difference between capitals and smallcase when typing folder names, unlike windows.

    Then it's not there. Did you check the content with ls first. ls is short for list and as I said it will show you all folder content. Double check if the file is there. It's not that difficult to navigate with ls and cd, you only have to get used to it. I'm old enough to remember when we had to do that in DOS, there were no fancy GUI windows then.

    When you want to go one level up with cd, the command is:
    cd ..

    Otherwise, to go into a folder you use:
    cd <folder name>
    Darko.
