I installed the B43 Legacy drivers under the command-line using:

apt-get install firmware-b43legacy-installer

How do I enable the driver in Lubuntu? Ubuntu has System -> Administration -> Hardware/Additional Drivers. Where is the Lubuntu equivalent of this?

Lubuntu has LXDE menu > Preferences > Additional Drivers.

With that said, when you install a driver from the command-line with apt-get, it is most often automatically enabled.

In Quantal, it is now in Preferences > Software Sources > Additional Drivers.

And now it's LXDE Menu -> Preference -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers Tab

Also : you have to select the correct repos yourself in the "other software" tab – kthx42 Aug 29 '13 at 10:32
