    Please let me know what other lines to run. I would really like to know the issue with my computer. im hoping its just a cheap incompatible chipset in the d-link. but that still dosent explain why my ndiswrapper wont work or show anyting besides the blank window.

    it might be crashing my usb drivers because my thumb drive works before i plug in the wifi adapter then my front usb ports wont work.

    The package isn't called ndiswrapper, hence the not found.

    However, lsusb failing is a different and larger issue. I'm not really sure how to proceed on that front. What version of Mint are you using?
