I installed Kubuntu today and I'm trying to get my wireless working but I am clueless about installing anything in this environment. This thread is helping. I downloaded ndiswrapper-1.51 in tar format and extracted it to my user directory. now what? I tried sudo apt-cdrom add
and it is unable to locate any packages.
Welcome to Linuxforums!
Since you have downloaded it and you extracted, you now need to install. Take a look here . It will guide you through the installation. If you got any problem I think it would be better starting your own thread.
Take a look at this
I think installing from sources is not as good an idea if you have a precompiled .deb package for that.
I always recommend to install from source, it is not that difficult anyway. It is the best thing to do. There is a small possibility when installing from .deb or .rpm not to install correctly.
