I need the drivers specifically for my PCI and for my USB – John Doe Nov 19 '12 at 23:14
The PCI bus does not use drivers. Your USB controller should also just work, why do you think you need drivers? – psusi Nov 19 '12 at 23:18

Graphics drivers: either:

  • Ubuntu Software Center > Edit > Software sources > Additional drivers > [the middle one]


But you'll probably also want to check out for more detailed help info before you got started.

Other drivers? I run a Sony Vaio and I've never needed anything except Catalyst. What are you missing?
