I am still try to learn Linux, so most of time I am lost like in this
situation. While I was waiting for the answer I went to
http://dnmouse.org/autoinstall.html I selected sudo with password it
downloaded the autonine file running this file assigned the password
automatically. Now when I repeat the command "sudo apt-get install
ndiswrapper-common nddiswrapper-utils ndisgtk" it accept the password
but it cannot find the "apt-get" is this a file that I need to get some
where?
Thank you
