http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I installed Ubuntu and I cant get my wireless connection to work. I found that I need ndiswrapper to update my drivers following the sticky post in here. However there is a problem, because I cant successfully run ndiswrapper on my system. Please help. Ubuntu 9.10, IBM ThinkPad T-40, what am I doing wrong? prem@prem-laptop:~/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.55$ make uninstall NOTE: Not all installed files are removed, as different distributions install ndiswrapper files at different places.
