Create a folder "firmware" in "/lib", then copy the two extracted folders into "/lib/firmware".

On your third screenshot in post #59 I can clearly see the firmware folder inside the lib folder.

And Hello again

musky123
Advice: Try to use screenshots only when needed(for graphics), for text: copy and paste only.
Not everyone have a fast connection here.

In Linux, you have to be logged as root/sudo to do certain changes on your system.
That's why you can't create a new directory and or move files.

Do the CTRL+ALT+T and type this:
Note: What you will see beginning with a # sharp sign are comments.
Code:
sudo nautilus
# Will ask for the password(root one) type it
# nautilus is the command to start the file browser.
Now do as MTK358 said, create the folder and copy the files.

Remember do sudo plus the command you want on a terminal everytime you need special access.

Consider reading a bit about the shell...
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Bourne_.../Print_Version

And remember everyone here is trying to help you, but you have to make some effort too.
Don't give up and we won't give up on you

Good luck

what you need to reilize is sometimes when there are instructions,it,s difficult for a newbie of this ooperating system to understand.

you said-Do the CTRL+ALT+T . so go to terminal

then type this. root one is that correct?then after type nautilus.



heres what i get

Error opening file '/lib/firmware/b43/ucode13.fw': Permission denied

And Hello!

musky - I know sometimes is hard...
No... What I have posted is to you go for the terminal (CTRL+ALT+T)
Then type this on the terminal:
Code:
sudo nautilus
Press Enter.
Will ask for your password.
Type it.

Now will open nautilus on root mode.
Finally you can create the firmware folder and copy the files like MTK pointed.

And voilla!!

Good luck, once again!

Not that musky.

Just open the terminal.
do sudo nautilus, create the firmware folder on /lib.
And copy the extracted folders of your desktop to /lib/firmware.

No commands... Just do it on your file browser.
...thread #64...
Haven't you read it?

Well people use to say that at the third is the deal.

Good luck!

Yes.

And did you read the LinuxCommand tutorial in my sig yet? If you did, you would probably easily figure out everything yourself.
