BL5-64bit - How to execute sh file, please?


I want to install the wifi driver rtl8812au.

I copied this code into a .sh file:
Code:
sudo apt purge rtl8812au-dkms
sudo apt install git
git clone https://github.com/abperiasamy/rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux.git
cd rtl8812AU_8821AU_linux
sudo make -f Makefile.dkms install
sudo modprobe rtl8812au
In the file properties I also allowed executing privileges and associated the file to terminology.

When I try to start it, I'm offered to open it, to execute it or to execute it in the terminal.

When I choose the terminal, nothing happens.

How can I execute this file properly, please?

Open a terminal, cd to the directory where the file is located and run
Code:
./nameofyourshelfile.sh

Is there also a way to do it by double-clicking the sh file?

Yes, but it sounds like you have done that already. The problem with doing it that way is you cannot see if any errors occur because the terminal just goes away once the script exits, as you have discovered.

Actually, I was looking for a way to double-click the sh file and watch the installation how it is performed in the terminal.

But now I have another problem.

Even the driver seems to be working (I can establish a wifi connection with it), I cannot find it anywhere.

There is supposed to be a file called rtl8812au.ko at this path:

Code:
/lib/modules/[kernel number]/kernel/drivers/net
But there's no such a file inside.

Where is it actually?

Sorry, couldn't tell you that - someone that uses Bohdi linux can probably better assist you with that. I am assuming "BL5" means Bohdi...

Yes, indeed, BL5 means Bodhi Linux 5.0.

.sh files are scripts. I thought that scripts had to have at the beginning of the file #!/bin/bash. If this is req'd and not in the file,
it will not execute. sounds as if you have gone thru the steps req'd, but I think that this beginning tells the system where to
find the shell.

The driver being a realtek wifi driver look in /lib/modules/[kernel number]/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/realtek

No, it is only required if you want a specific shell to execute the script.
Normally the shell will start a child of ITSELF to execute it.
And anyway, a lot of scripts use /bin/sh instead of bash (especially in Debian, where /bin/sh makes a script startup much faster as they're using dash (the Debian Almquist SHell) for it instead of bash.

BTW, you need to tell that script is for executing.

chmod +x scriptname.sh

then run it
./scriptname.sh

Just for a record:
Doubleclick is also possible. You have to create a personal launcher with a name. This will create a personalname.desktop and then you can add the exec part with the script name. Then just run it from quick launcher or put it on the screen. But I also share the idea you need to do this only once in terminal. No need to make it repeatedly.
