I have recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on the Windows partition of my Macbook Pro Model 8.1. Everything seemed to go smoothly during installation however as I am trying to connect to wireless internet, I have had no luck.
I have gone to the update manager and installed all of the updates that were ready on my first usage of Ubuntu. I have rebooted and there is still no sign of connectivity. I went to add additional drivers and there is one listed - 'Broadcom STA wireless driver.' When I go to activate this driver, I receive an error message that reads 'Sorry, installation of this driver failed. Please have a look at the log file for details:
After this I have tried removing Ubuntu and reinstalling it on my Windows partition. This led me to the same place.
The internet will connect when I use ethernet.
After using lspci -nn -d 14e4: I receive the following specifications.
02:00.0 Ethernet controller : Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM57765 Gigabit Ethernet PCIe [14e4:16b4] (rev 10) 02:00.1 SD Host controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM57765/57785 SDXC/MMC Card Reader [14e4:16bc] (rev 10) 03:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4331 802.11a/b/g/n [14e4:4331] (rev 02)
I have tried rebuilding the
bcmwl-kernel-source using the command
sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source and then
sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source. Yet, nothing. I receive a warning that says
Warning: No support for locale: en_US.utf8. I am not sure if this information is pertinent to the overall task.
Thank you to anyone who might have suggestions. I am very new to Ubuntu and still trying to get used to the in's and out's of it. Thank you!
