You need to install the driver for it, just search Google for it if a CD/USB drive didn't come with the adapter.

Yes i got the drivers, when i want to run wine to install it, it says location not found. Am i on the right track?

How do i run a setup.exe file in the terminal
As i want to install the setup for the drivers

E: Unable to locate package wine
E: Unable to locate package leafpad

These are the errors i am getting i want to install the wireless adaptor drivers with wine but cant seem get anything working
