I'm not sure what you mean by repositories but when I use the command (from the terminal runnung as Super User) sudo apt-get install minicom I get an error message that tells me it can't find it. Currently I have the untarred files in a folder on the desktop. I think I need to put the files in a specific place so it knows where to look for them or use the command in such a way that the location of the files is specified but being very new to Linux I don't know how to do it. Is there is another command I should be using or a better way to install it??
