I built a computer and installed Ubuntu 13.10. I've never used Linux before.
I have installed in it a wireless network card, Broadcom BCM4318, chip 14e4:4318.
I'm told that to use it I need to install NDISWRAPPER, so I downloaded ndiswrapper 1.59. I followed the instructions in the package- navigating to the directory of the tarball, extracting it using
tar zxvf ndiswrapper-version.tar.gz
Then going to the INSTALL file, doing what it said:
make uninstall make
Login as root and run
And now I'm trying to run ndiswrapper, and the terminal says it isn't installed, but I can install it using
sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common
So I type that in and it says
E: Unable to locate package ndiswrapper-common
And here I am, stuck, as if I have done nothing. I'm tearing my hair out over here, nothing appears to work. All I'm trying to do is something that every internet guide claims is easy, YET EVERY ONE OF THEM HAS A DIFFERENT SET OF INSTRUCTIONS FOR DOING SO. How do I install my damn wireless network card?
