New to Raspberry and just experimenting for now. I bought a Kuman 7" touchscreen and got the display to work, but I am having trouble installing the matchbox touchscreen software.
I moved the software from the CD-ROM that came with the display to a USB memory stick and started following the command-line instructions.
I am getting errors like:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ sudo apt-get install libfakekey-devlibpng-devautoconflibxft-devlibtoolautomake –y
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package libfakekey-devlibpng-devautoconflibxft-devlibtoolautomake
E: Unable to locate package –y

Do I need to manually move the install files to a specific directory on the Raspbian SD card?

Is there a tutorial on how to install and configure alternative hardware somewhere on the Raspberry web site?
I am guessing what is going on based on my Windows experience...

Also, there is a software image file on the CD-ROM, can that be unzipped to the Raspbian computer and should it install itself? (my guess is: not).



There appears to be a couple of problems with your installation instructions. First off, the -y should go before "install". This is a flag to say "automatically answer yes to any prompts", by putting it at the end, it's being treated as a package name to install and failing when it can't find it.

More importantly, there should be spaces between the package names - for example,

sudo apt-get -y install libfakekey-dev libpng-dev autoconf libxft-dev libtool automake

Currently it's looking for a lengthy name that doesn't actually exist as an installable package, hence the error.

If you get any further errors, it would probably help if you're able to point us to a copy of the installation instructions.

Some googling led me to https://www.amazon.com/Kuman-Capacitive-Display-Raspberry-SC7B/dp/B01F3801A2 And then to https://mega.nz/#F!iI9WjThL!VHRNzC44Cxlx7CjIQQJqBQ

Assuming it's the files at that mega.nz site, I see a few more errors, most notably spaces missing after the sudo command further down (sudonano and sudochmod should, of course, be "sudo nano" and "sudo chmod")
