ryan_ok, im trying to install drivers for my wireless card because it wont recognize ine01:28
jribhave you checked the ubuntu wiki for ubuntu-friendly instructions?  or is that what you are using?01:28
=== mau [n=mau@adsl-75-35-18-233.dsl.irvnca.sbcglobal.net] has joined #ubuntu-classroom
jribok then :)01:29
ryan_yes, im using that doc above01:29
jribryan_: notice that it may be easier for you to use gedit01:29
ryan_can i open this dat file with gedit and make the changes that i need01:30
jribryan_: that is what the document you linked to says (it gives you the proper switch for gedit right below the vi command)01:30
ryan_i put in this command: gksudo gedit --encoding=ISO-8859-15 /etc/Wireless/RT61STA/rt61sta.dat01:31
jribyep, that seems right01:32
ryan_then i went into the readme where it told me to use the vi command, and now im stuck01:32
jribryan_: what readme?01:33
jribyou need to give me context :)01:33
ryan_it came with the linux drivers i downloaded from ralink01:33
jribok so the readme has a vi command that is not in the ubuntu wiki?01:33
jribwhat command?01:34
ryan_Use "vi -b rt61sta.dat" to modify settings according to your need.01:34
jribryan_: ah but that is the same command as in the wiki, so you should be able to use that gedit command01:34
jribJust heed the warning in the ubuntu wiki to only use ASCII characters01:35
ryan_ok well i typed in the gedit command, and i dont see where to modify the settings01:35
ryan_gksudo: unrecognized option `--encoding=ISO-8859-15'01:36
ryan_i think i have a problem01:36
jriberm ok01:36
jribwe'll use vi then01:36
jribclose all vi instances you have open01:36
jribESCAPE :q!01:36
mauhey guys01:36
jribshould quit vi01:36
jribmau: hi01:37
ryan_i type "ESCAPE :q!"?01:37
maui'm not sure what the protocal is in irc... noob.  may I ask a question?01:37
jribryan_: well instead of ESCAPE, you hit the escape button, then you type  :q!01:37
ryan_lol, ok01:37
jribmau: sure, but you are usually better off starting in #ubuntu since there are more eyes there01:38
maugood call, thanks01:38
ryan_bash: :q!: command not found01:38
jribryan_: I mean in vi01:38
ryan_ahh, im so lost01:39
ryan_im sorry01:39
jribryan_: this is just to close any vi windows you have open so we can start over.  Are there any open?01:39
ryan_i dont even know what a vi window is01:39
jribwell your terminal will have a text editor01:40
jribryan_: if you don't see any then just type this command (in your terminal) and tell me the output:  ps -ef | grep vi01:41
ryan_ryan     10226  9958  0 17:41 pts/1    00:00:00 grep vi01:41
jribgreat, ok now what does the command 'pwd' return?01:41
jribok, and this one:  ls /etc/Wireless/RT61STA/rt61sta.dat*01:42
ryan_no such file or directory01:43
ryan_oops typo on my part01:44
ryan_in green01:44
=== Crusher [n=You@ppp69-128.lns3.adl2.internode.on.net] has joined #ubuntu-classroom
jribmy fault, it should be: ls /etc/Wireless/RT61STA/.rt61sta.dat*01:46
jrib(it's ok if it gives you an error or nothing)01:47
ryan_that time it said no such file or directory01:48
jribok so there should be no .swp file.  What happens when you use vi now?  sudo vi -b /etc/Wireless/RT61STA/rt61sta.dat01:48
ryan_cool i think that worked01:49
jribryan_: do you know how to do basic editing in vi?01:49
ryan_nope, lol01:49
jribryan_: if you want a good intro, run 'vimtutor' in another shell01:50
ryan_ok thanks01:50
jribryan_: but basically, if you want to insert text, press  i01:50
ryan_i think it said only to use ascii text, is an under-score okay?01:51
jribryan_: the warning is only if you use gedit01:51
jrib_ should be ok01:51
ryan_SSID is the name of a network right?01:52
jribno idea01:53
jribSSID=<SSID of your Access Point>   from the wiki01:53
ryan_yes, i guess they mean the name of my lan?01:53
jribryan_: give it a try01:54
ryan_how would i delete blank spaces from the vi01:56
ryan_blank lines*01:56
jribryan_: ESCAPE :g/^\s*$/d01:58
jribthat deletes lines with only space on them too...01:58
ryan_where do i type that02:00
jribin vi02:01
jribyou press the escape button then type in that stuff after02:02
ryan_when i do that i dont see anything come up02:02
ryan_i have to press i02:02
jribwell when you press : you should see a : at the bottom left and then what you type goes there02:02
jribanother happy vi user02:07
