comment When I start the computer, it only shows the terminal
If you can log in on terminal it may be worth running the command history to give a list of what commands you ran. This list may help identify what went wrong.

comment Compatible USB Wi-Fi adapters
This is not exactly a question for an issue you want solved. It is a demand for people to make a list of adapters as different answers, an a format you have pre-defined. I understand you are trying to produce a useful list of adapters but it seems a bit presumptuous and demanding.

Did you install the library in command line. You could use the history command to check what you installed.

comment installation problem in matlab 7.10a
What have you tried and what are this issues you are having? Matlab install generally involves running an installer for a linux copy of matlab. Sometimes there are a few minor further issues to get it to launch in desktop mode to connect to the licence server.
