Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

I reinforce that you should provide a descriptive topic title.

You need to construct a question or description of your problem(s). Look in my sig for some additional help. You should also 'man minicom'.

Hi,

You should stay within one post for your particular problem. Duplicates do no one any good!

The error seems to say:
1. minicom is not installed
2. you are spelling the word wrong
3. you need to add the path to the program to the PATH variable,\

Are you trying to execute as Root?

I took the liberty to join your two threads on the
same topic, and would ask you not to double post in
the future. One thread per topic in one forum is
the rule around here.
