    Setting Up Internet and Opening .DEB


    Hi, I'm new to Linux and am trying to set it up. I have installed Debian on my computer but am having trouble setting up my wireless Internet. Under my network settings there's only one connection: Ethernet. I can't seem to find anywhere in Help how to create a new (wireless) connection. Help, please?

    Another thing is that I can't seem to open .deb files. The archive manager says that it's not supported. But I can't seem to find the dselect to open those files either. Help?

    One more question: how can I enter commands through the promp(t)? I've read all over the Internet that I can enter in commands, but I haven't found where or how.

    Thanks for the help!

    Hello and Welcome.
    Start here for Wireless and post your results using the code tags please.

    See this link for installing software in Linux and just general good knowledge.

    Being a new to Linux person you should probably only install software from your system repos once you get the Internet working. Finding the terminal or command prompt is just a matter of browsing the system menu and look for Terminal or Konsole and click on that.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
