Software Install Issue

Asked by MetungKP on 2011-04-24

Here's is what I'm trying to do:
$ mkdir fujitsu_touchscreen_driver
$ cd fujitsu_touchscreen_driver
$ wget http://

2 uncompress the package
$ tar zxvf fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8.tar.gz
$ cd fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8

3 install the software
$ make
$ sudo make install

This is where I'm stuck:

metungkp1@MetungKP1:~$ mkdir fujitsu_touchscreen_driver
metungkp1@MetungKP1:~$ cd fujitsu_touchscreen_driver
metungkp1@MetungKP1:~/fujitsu_touchscreen_driver$ wget http:// downloads

This question was reopened

The url you use as parameter for wget is invalid. Try to find the correct url and try it again.

There first one was wrong but the second one was correct:
metungkp1@MetungKP1:~/fujitsu_touchscreen_driver$ wget http://home/metungkp1/downloads

I don't know what Compress and DeCompress mean or what software to use for those. I think maybe my issue is with those.

MetungKP (metungkp) said : #4

Also uncompress...

After a little search I found this url: http://katastrophos.net/downloads/fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8.tar.gz
Try to wget that one: wget http://katastrophos.net/downloads/fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8.tar.gz

After the file is done downloading you can uncompress the file.

You should do like this:

$ mkdir fujitsu-touchscreen-driver
$ cd fujitsu-touchscreen-driver
$ wget http://katastrophos.net/downloads/fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8.tar.gz
$ tar zxvf fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8.tar.gz
$ cd fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8
$ make
$ sudo make install

Hopefully this will help you....

MetungKP (metungkp) said : #7

Thanks Luky Winarto, that solved my question.

MetungKP (metungkp) said : #8

As suggested by Luky Winarto below...

You should do like this:

$ mkdir fujitsu-touchscreen-driver
$ cd fujitsu-touchscreen-driver ************These are supposed to be underscore, will it make a difference that you typed dashes?*******************************************
$ wget http://katastrophos.net/downloads/fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8.tar.gz
$ tar zxvf fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8.tar.gz
$ cd fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8
$ make
$ sudo make install

Hopefully this will help you....

Let's learn together:

$ mkdir fujitsu-touchscreen-driver
This command is used to make a new directory named with fujitsu-touchscreen-driver

$ cd fujitsu-touchscreen-driver
This command is used to enter a directory named with fujitsu-touchscreen-driver. Because I made directory named with fujitsu-touchscreen-driver before, so in order to enter that new directory I have to type exactly like I made before. In this case fujitsu-touchscreen-driver. I hope you will understand this command. It just simple make a new directory then enter it. You can do like this:
$ mkdir fujitsu_touchscreen_driver
$ cd fujitsu_touchscreen_driver

$ wget http://katastrophos.net/downloads/fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8.tar.gz
This command is used to download your file from internet.

$ tar zxvf fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8.tar.gz
This will untar your file then you will get the new directory

$ cd fujitsu-usb-touchscreen-0.3.8
This will enter that new directory

$ make
$ sudo make install
Those commands is used to install the program. You can get information how to install it by read the readme file or install file in directory that you've been untar before.

From your first questions, you cannot install the program because you got wrong command:
metungkp1@MetungKP1:~/fujitsu_touchscreen_driver$ wget http:// downloads
http://: Invalid host name.
--2011-04-24 07:15:05-- http://downloads/
Resolving downloads... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address `downloads'

Then, you were trying to follow the next step from the instructions, but you failed.
What I'm trying to do is to help you how to install the program from command line (using gnome-terminal program).

I hope you will understand those commands I gave you..

Can you help with this problem?
