Today I installed 12.10 as my second OS. I made all updates and upgrades. Then I downloaded crunch-3.4tgz and fern-wifi-cracker 1.6 all.deb but I could nowhere find these files to be able to install the applications.

Searching Ask Ubuntu did not help me. Everytime I follow any guide I get the error no such file or directory.

My box seems not to see these files even though I had placed them on my desktop.

Where can I find them?

The file should go to your Download directory. Try ls -a ~/Downloads and see if your file is there.

If its not there for some reason you can use the find command to locate it. find $HOME -iname crunch-3.4tgz

You can also search in the graphical interface, Nautilus.
