I want to start this off by mentioning that I am very new to using Linux, so I'm having a pretty hard time figuring this one out on my own.
Version: Ubuntu Desktop 18.04
I went out and bought a wireless card for this PC so that I can connect to my home internet, however the card will not just "Plug-and-Play." I did some searching online and came across some drivers as well as instructions for installing them via USB, but I seem to have run into an issue. The instructions state that I need to use commands such as "make", Running the make command in the terminal returns the following:
Command 'make' not found, but it can be installed with: . sudo apt install make sudo apt install make-guile
and running sudo apt install make returns:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package make is not available, but is referred to by another package. this may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'make' has no installation candidate
I can imagine I'd get this error for all other commands I try to run.
If it helps at all, I'm trying to follow instructions found here to install these drivers. I then did some searching online trying to find a way to get the 'make' command, but pretty much everything says that I will have to connect the machine in question to the internet. I'm looking for a way to either get the make command (and other commands that I will need for installing drivers) onto this PC, or a way to install drivers without using these commands.
Anything I put onto the machine will be coming from a Windows laptop to the Ubuntu machine via a flash drive. Again, I want to say, it is not possible for me to use an Ethernet connection at this time. Thanks in advance for any help you all provide :)
