the second is better, but probably the first one will work too.
I think you need to get at least a basic bash (shell) and linux training.

I downloaded a new tarball but went ahead and tried to install the old roccat-tools-0.21.0 file...only because I was not able to delete the old version of the file, even when using sudo remove, what's up with that??? I was not sure if I should try to proceed with the newly downloaded file as the older file seems to have it's "hooks" into my Black Opal OS.

How can I or should I even remove it??? Betwixt and between!

do not use root user for building software. Also do not sudo as root, it has no any meaning. I have no idea what did you do, so I do not know how to clean up your box.
Please try to learn some basics of linux and bash. http://www.linux.org/forums/beginner-tutorials.53/

It seems to me that Black Opal Linux is an Ubuntu based distribution. Therefore I recommend not to install the driver from source, but to use the PPA for Ubuntu, that is mentioned in the driver manual.

In that case you must mean this page with the roccat-tools.

https://launchpad.net/~berfenger/+archive/roccat

I (think) TobiSGD it's the last PPA on that page because Black Opal is build on Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin that says:
roccat-tools 0.20.0-ppa1-precise1 Arturo Casal (2013-08-21)

I have never added a PPA to either my Black Opal or Fedora that I am running. I will have to learn how:
I know I have to tell Black Opal where to find the PPA but that's all I know at the moment--

I learned that I have to add that PPA to my Software Sources list and than run:
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:user/ppa-name
So thinking outloud... this way because it is the name of the pkg-
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:berfenger/roccat
If I am correct; than my system will fetch the PPA's key and than the site reccommends
to run apt-get update--

You are about to add the following PPA to your system:
 This repository contains binary packages for the Roccat tools and kernel modules by Stefan Achatz.

The package "roccat-kmod-dkms" is required if your kernel version does not support your device or if you want to use the latest module version (recommended).

Cannot access PPA (https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~ppa/+archive/ppa) to get PPA information, please check your internet connection.

I don't think there is a problem on my end of the connection as I have tried twice to download from LaunchPad, with no success. I can go everywhere else on the web with no problem. My connection was down earlier in the day, perhaps they are having web service issues now!?

Sorry, I don't use Ubuntu, so I can't help with problems regarding the usage of PPAs. If it keeps not working for a few days I would recommend to ask on the Ubuntu forum about that or to contact Arturo Casal, contact info can be found on that Launchpad site.

After I added the "roccat-kmod-dkms" ppa to the Software Sources I later found it in the Software Center ready to install.

Thank you Pan64 for staying with me.

Thank you for your help TobiSGD!
