Hello, this is my first time working with Linux. I had an old laptop, a Dell Inspiron E1505, that I wasn't using, so I thought I'd install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS over the existing OS, Windows Vista. I'll start from the beginning, just so you have all the info.
I couldn't get Ubuntu to boot from a Live CD, so I went the USB route which worked great.
I've tried to fix this for whole night and still no idea what's going on.
When I log to empathy then it shows I'm available and everything is fine but doesn't load my contacts. Same happens with pidgin and emesene and skype. Also having problems to download my mail thru evolution. Thunderbird downloads mail but throws me some alert boxes when starts to download contacts (from gmail).
Please help me solve this problem and get my wifi usb device with USB ID 148f:7601 to work and get detected by Ubuntu. please tell me which device driver should I install (Link for drivers) and what is the exact process to install drivers in Ubuntu bcs I just installed Ubuntu and I have no idea about it. Also my Ubuntu PC is offline.
this is my first time install Ubuntu. I previously Linux Mint users.
the problem is when/after i'm install Ubuntu 14.04.1, i'm cannot find my network wireless in driver manager. if in Linux Mint, I can immediately turn on the wi-fi in the driver manager. and immediately be able to use wi-fi. and does not require a wired connection. may i wrong when installing ?
A new install of 12.04. I had a wired connection at first then did the updates then all networking stoped working. Upon rebooting no networking was available, but when I changed the kernel at boot time wired works, it all broke when when I installed additional drivers.
My wifi connection suddenly became flaky with ubuntu a couple of months ago, and I found you broadcom wireless table which instructed me to install linux-firmware-nonfree. I removed firmware-b43-installer and installed linux-firmware-nonfree and rebooted but there is no wireless connection. Any way to get it to work?
