Hi,

you've linked directly to the instructions. Did you try following them? Did you get stuck somewhere?

I typed sudo apt-get install ia32-libs into the terminal and I think the installation was completed. Took two seconds.

I I also download the script bundle. I put them in my home directory along with the idevsutil files.

In step 3, I need to give permissions. How do I do that?

Thanks again for your help!

Use the chmod command as shown. From the instructions:
Code:
chmod a+x *.pl
chmod a+x idevsutil

chmod: cannot access ‘*.pl’: No such file or directory

Hi,

did you extract the zip archive as instructed in step 2.? Are you in the correct directory?

Are you at all familiar with working on the command line? Eg do you know how to use the "ls", "pwd" and "cd" commands? If not, I think you need to learn at least those three before proceeding.

Hi,

I started with the so called "Rute book" [1], it's a little old but still very good. I also like the Debian Handbook [2], much of which is also relevant for Debian derived systems like Ubuntu and Mint.

HTH,

Evo2.
