  • Linux Lite: 4.6 64bit
hi guys,
just installed Lite 5 and it's working perfectly, so happy with it. But maybe not so happy with myself:) I have a new TechlyI-Card Cam-USB2TY which for the life of me I can't install. I can't run the mini cd installation disc beyond putting the files into a folder and the driver from the website I do not know how to open.
Grateful for any help...

bzip2 -d i_card_cam_usb2ty_card_reader_driver_per_linux_v1_10.bz2

is the command, looks like you included 'command  - ' from my instructions.

JKey did right what he did.
The problem is that there are only sources for the driver. He has to complile the driver. And I guess it's too much to handle for the beginner level. I avoid this too, although I guess I can handle it, if this would be the only approach.

I also read the "Readme" file and actually the producer assumes that everybody is a seasoned programmer. There are only a few words saying what step to do, but nothing else, such as what compiler version, dependencies and all the rest of the stuff.
I wanted to help, but it's well above my level of experience so I just read the info and looked into the files. When I saw the solution, i got stucked too.

If you can point here to some compiling basic (total newbie) articles, would be really helpful.
Or if there is anyone experienced enough and willing to do the compiling and build a .deb installer with the binary, I guess this would be the best approach to this issue.

happy that it's difficult for you too:) (not really but it makes me feel better)
this is the terminal response after steps 1 and 2 and the read me file as you say assumes a higher level.

Start again, first delete all remnants of previous attempts.
