I think my Ethernet works but it just will not connect. I'm really not sure. And I think I just installed the file recently and just wasn't 100% sure if I did or didn't. Ubuntu didn't say that I was ever missing the file. But I tried to install a few operating systems before and they always said I was missing it and wouldn't let me install. So basically you guys helped me answer my question but I still haven't fixed my computer.

Location: Earth? I would say I hope so but I'm not so sure about that... I could just be a figment of your imagination too.
Distribution: CentOS at the time of this writing, but some others over the years too...

I think maybe mark this thread as SOLVED and then, if you still cannot 'connect', maybe start a new thread in the 'Networking' forum. As I don't know what else to suggest.

Good idea, I'll try to figure out what question to ask next and maybe make a thread tomorrow.

Regardless of the ins-and-outs of this specific issue, for anyone wanting to install .deb packages there is of course the standalone installer gDebi. This will install specifically .deb files, along with any necessary dependencies, and will also update the package manager lists, so that it knows what's going on & can keep track of things.

I must agree, however (and although I haven't been here all that long, this is born from years & years of forum and bulletin board use); multiple threads, often simply abandoned, will confuse and annoy other forum members.....and those who are, out of the goodness of their hearts, attempting to help.

In short.....don't do it!!!

If necessary, mods will usually move threads to the best location for 'exposure' for the specific problem; stick with the thread from that point on, and, if you've decided to drop the subject, at least have the courtesy to say so. People will think more highly of you for doing so, and are more likely to give your threads a look in the future.

The OP's question HAS been answered, so there is NO point in continuing with this thread. Now, if the mod's what to say otherwise, that is their call to make, in which case, fair enough.
