Software Installation Issue (is a tar.gz file)

Asked by MetungKP on 2011-04-21

When I get to #3 it says Cannot open: No such file or directory

Installing the Fujitsu Buttons driver (fjbtndrv)

In order to get the buttons and auto-rotation functionality working we will need to compile and install the latest version of fjbtndrv.
The most current version as of this writing is 2.2.1. Please make sure you download the latest version here.

1 sudo apt-get install libxrandr-dev libxtst-dev libxi-dev libhal-dev
2 wget http://sourceforge.net/projects/fjbtndrv/files/fjbtndrv/2.2.1/fjbtndrv-2.2.1.tar.gz/download
3 tar xvzf fjbtndrv-2.2.1.tar.gz
4 cd fjbtndrv-2.2.1
5 ./configure
6 make
7 sudo make install

Here's the exact error...

metungkp1@MetungKP1:~$ tar xvzf fjbtndrv-2.2.1.tar.gz
tar (child): fjbtndrv-2.2.1.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
metungkp1@MetungKP1:~$ ls-l
ls-l: command not found

Please open the:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/fjbtndrv/files/fjbtndrv/2.2.1/fjbtndrv-2.2.1.tar.gz/download

with a browser and save the file into your system

Then open a terminal
change directory to the downloaded file dir

cd yourdownload_path/....

and go on with other terminal commands

tar xvzf fjbtndrv-2.2.1.tar.gz
..

'How``do I do this

?

Then open a terminal
change directory to the downloaded file dir

cd yourdownload_path/....

If you want to manipulate the file youo need to change directory to the containing folder. So if you put the file in your Downloads folder in your home directory then you will FIRST need to run:

cd ~/Downloads

The file you wanted to extract is not in your present working directory (pwd) so the interpretter will say it cannot see the file.
