Hey I'm using xnmcbuntu and all I have is terminal to work with I can open most things like synaptic and software center what's the command for the additional drivers app?
I've read around that using the proprietary ati/amd drivers can solve some slowdown and power issues, so I'd like to give them a try. However, if I open the "additional drivers" tab in the Ubuntu software center it says "no additional drivers available" and "no proprietary drivers in use". Why, and how do I get it to check for the relevant drivers?
Whenever I try to run the "Additional Drivers" application, it searches for about 15 minutes and then crashes. Is there another way to search for additional drivers or a non-gui application that could carry out the same purpose?
Hello I'm looking for the terminal command to load my broadcom BCM4312 STA drivers because currently every time I boot up I need open system/additional drives and click on the STA driver and go remove, then wait 2min for it to do that, then click on the STA driver and go install, wait another 2min and then finally my wireless will work correctly.
OK so I just got Ubuntu the other month or so. I'm running the 11.04 version currently and trying to install drivers for a Nvidia graphics card (it's my brother's computer and he currently cannot find the number of the card right now). I read that, to install the proper drivers for gaming, I would need to go into "Additional Drivers" and choose them myself.
I've dual-boot my Ubuntu 12.10 and I had my default 12.04 LTS problem, it is the Graphics. Usually I use the "Additional Drivers" to check out my "hidden" Graphics card. But after I replace the Precise with Quantal, I didn't found my "Additional Drivers" in System Settings!! I already download from Ubuntu Software Center, and after it finish I still can't find it.
I'm stuck. Ubuntu 11.10 was working fine. I tried to create a desktop icon that I could click and run a Terminal command. (not launch a program, just run a command to set something). I don't know what I did, but now I can't get Terminal to run at all. I can't click on Terminal in the Launchbar or use alt-F2. If I try, I see a VERY quick box open and close.
Ubuntu Software Center is so sl-o-o-o-o-w... Seriously, I can launch a virtual machine with some Windows apps faster than it takes Software Center to load!
I dislike Software Center so much I installed Synaptic ages ago, and that loads in 2 seconds! Perfect. Well almost - I can't seem to open downloaded .debs with it. Can I change things so that Synaptic opens .debs by default?
