Can't install aircrack-ng

Ok so I'm a noob at Ubuntu just really started using it today no lie. But i was installing aircrack-ng as seen in this video and all was going fine until i hit hiccup. I looked into the whole "No such file or directory" issue on google and that’s how i came to find this site. I also had the same problem of No such file or directory when i tried to save a new text document to documents. any help at all would be great.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

The question is too general, as well as off topic. Working with the terminal takes some practicing. Find a tutorial and go over it. – mikewhatever Aug 2 '12 at 21:49
@mikewhatever Installing aircrack-ng on Ubuntu 12.04 is not off-topic. "We welcome questions about ...running third-party applications on Ubuntu." However, we will need more information to provide an answer. Wesley Ruede: You'll need to tell us what step No such file or directory happened at. In fact, please edit your question to include all the text from the Terminal (including what you typed, just select it all, copy it, paste it, and format it with <$>). If you closed the Terminal, do it all over. Your question's unanswerable without this. – Eliah Kagan Aug 2 '12 at 21:54
aircrack-ng was unmaintained and therefore removed from the debian (and so ubuntu) repositories. It may be available in 12.10 – nothingspecial Aug 2 '12 at 22:10
@nothingspecial It can still be installed from source (and perhaps with other methods as well). That video shows a method for installing it from source. With more information from Wesley Ruede, it should be pretty easy to fix this problem. (Without that information, that will be impossible.) – Eliah Kagan Aug 8 '12 at 20:56
General build directions for compiling packages from source is another separate, but already existent question. – RobotHumans Aug 17 '12 at 2:53

That video is a hack which is unsupported in Ubuntu.

You would be better installing backtrack.

Turning off all warnings into errors, while poor good practice, is not a shoddy hack. I would think a pro-ubuntu community would point towards a ppa. This way if the OP is interested they can check how it was made to compile... – RobotHumans Aug 17 '12 at 3:03
