how do I get the output of (inxi -F) to forum?


I have loaded LinuxMint17 to my Acer One Netbook and I cannot get internet going.
My netbook has a physical switch for internet connectivity but no dice here with LinuxMint17 nor could I get it to work with Ubuntu 14.03.
The netbook originally had Windows 7.
I am so new to Linux I cannot figure out how to get my output (inxi -F)from the netbook to the MAC Air to show on the forum.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Ray

if you are in a gui, you would hi-lite the text with the mouse (rite-clik->copy/rite-clik->paste).

most commands you can run like this:
Code:
inxi -F > output-of-inxi.txt
to save the output to a text file.

OK I got the text output from inxi from the Acer One onto a thumb drive. How do I put on this forum?

Open the file in your text editor and copy the text. Hit reply on this thread and you'll see a "#" on the menu bar. Hit that and it will insert 2 [code] labels - paste the text between them...

No I did not get the text from the Acer on the thumb drive. Will work at more. I need explicit examples or what to do needs to be explained.

I have no idea how a MAC works but "generally" an OS will choose the correct program by double clicking on the file. A file with a .txt extension is usually opened in a text editor. In Windows/Linux if you right click on a file it will generally pop up a menu that includes "open" or "open with".

I'm not trying to be insulting, but getting wireless working can be a challenge - do you have anyone that can give you a hand nearby?

NO, I think Linux folks are like Windows folks. I will not be posting anymore. Thanks for your help anyway....

Your choice, but many times to get wireless working you'll have to add drivers or make a bunch of changes in system config files and it gets pretty complex. Since you were having trouble even opening a .txt file or copying & pasting - I asked you if you had somebody local to give you a hand. Sorry you're offended but it's very tough to spell out each and every minute step of a complex process over an internet forum...

NGIB is right.-

Changes are that you do not have the driver for your chipset installed.
You may also need wireless-tools as well.

And I think you will also need the linux driver for your wifi card.

Once those drivers are installed your internet connection should work.

-::-Finding out what chipset is on your motherboard can be found by running the lspci command-::-


schneidz and NGIB are experienced with Linux. I know, they have assisted me and helped me to fix my system with success.

Try not to throw the towel in so soon w/o giving others a chance to help you.

-::-Reading the Linux Mint Documentation would help and give you wisdom and insight to how things work and function.-::-
