Terminal Results


Hi I followed a members specific instructions and typed these commands into my terminal. I (think) the driver (r8168) is installed.

cd /home/cat/Desktop
tar -xvjf r8168-8.027.00.tar.bz2
cd r8168-8.027.00
sudo ./autorun.sh

cat@ztcat:~$ cd /home/cat/Desktop
cat@ztcat:~/Desktop$ tar -xvjf r8168-8.027.00.tar.bz2

Looks as what I'd expect to me. You'll need to use some way of setting it up, e.g.
making use of wpa_supplicant to atually get onto your WiFi network.

Agreed; it is probably better for me to learn on my own.
This problem I have had has went on for six weeks or better now.
But I am not going to except defeat. Eventually I will learn enough from Linux websites and the 2 very good books I have " Ubuntu Linux Bible" and "The Official Ubuntu Book" and one day....(hope it's soon) something has got to give.
