When you removed bcmwl-kernel-source, a blacklist file was left behind. It is preferable to purge, not remove. Let's remove the blacklist file: sudo rm /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-bcm43.conf In some cases, upon boot, the driver b43 also loads and the wireless doesn't work. If this is your case, post back and we'll proceed. We may need to blacklist b43 or ...

After your system boots, and you verify that there is no sound, try these commands: sudo pulseaudio -k sudo modprobe -r snd_hda_intel sudo modprobe snd_hda_intel Then test to see if sound works. This sequence of commands makes my ALC898-based Audigy Fx PCIe card work normally for as long as the system is booted. If you find that these commands reliably ...

This is strange. In an older version of Linux a about a year ago, I was able to use my DSmobile 720D with not problem using the Ubuntu version of Linux Mint (LM). Now, it does not work with one of the latest release LM 17.

What windows driver did you use ndiswrapper -l that card is supported in the kernel. If there isn't a wireless switch do echo "blacklist ideapad_laptop" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/ideapad.conf and reboot to see if it is enabled. Then I will help to get the kernel drivers going again Edit: to remove the ndiswrapper version sudo ndiswrapper -r netwsw00 ...

I believe you have the incorrect driver. Please open a terminal and do: sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source Reboot and tell us if it is working as expected.

You should sudo apt-get purge bcmwl-kernel-source sudo apt-get install linux firmware Reboot and if wifi still isn't working, you can blacklist a couple modules echo "blacklist b43" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf echo "blacklist ssb" | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf Then it should work unless you blacklisted one of the needed ...

Download the source code of the driver: wget http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11876059/DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508.tar.gz then extract the file from tar file tar -xvf DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508.tar.gz after that enter to this dir cd ~/DPO_RT3290_LinuxSTA_V2600_20120508 make # compile the make file sudo make install # install the make file ...

It looks like the drivers were made for kernel 2.4/2.6, which is extremely out dated. And are you sure you have a realtek sound card? But anyway see SoundTroubleshootingProcedure.

OK! FINALLY. after hours and hours trying to figure out what is going on I got my steam fixed. follow these steps and you will be fine.

I suggest reinstalling Ubuntu to solve your network issues. Using the Ubuntu desktop amd64.iso for both 14.04 and 15.04 networking was operational on my Lenovo w540 Thinkpad right after the install. 14.04.2 was recently released and I suggest you try that version of Ubuntu.

AFAIU, bcmwl-kernel-source is correct, so I suggest you reinstall it: sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source sudo modprobe wl Now check the logs for informative messages: dmesg | grep wl It appears that, although you have a 3.16.0-xx kernel (thanks, @Jeremy31!), apt has tried to install the version for Ubuntu 14.04. I suggest you remove ...

Same problem, here, last week my laptop LG with Intel Sandy Bridge and Nvidia GForce start freezing in the way you describe. In the past it could freeze from time to time.

Try to update to Ubuntu 14.10. I have the same model of Mac, and audio/video works as expected, if you want to duplicate the content of your monitor in your TV, in the "Screens" Control Panel of Ubuntu, check the "Mirror screens" option.

Remember that the GMA 3600 drivers are only 32-bit and only compatible with older kernels. Given that Intel abandoned support for the GMA 3600 hardware, even for Microsoft Windows, using the generic VESA driver with a recent Ubuntu release is probably a better choice.

Yes, the nvidia driver uses a kernel module. When the nvidia driver, VirtualBox, ndiswrapper, and one or two other packages are installed, they hook into a system called dkms. DKMS will automatically build copies of these modules for any new kernel that is installed (after the package manager installs linux-whatever-image and linux-whatever-headers, it ...

I finally got the nvidia driver and screen resolution working with the latest nvidia 346.47 driver from the x-edgers ppa.

I found a workaround. I created two scripts (one of them I found it on this website, but now I lost the link).

You can try removing edgers ppa and getting your drivers from mamarley. My 346 drivers from there work great. Not sure what is different but the edgers 346 didn't work for me but marley's did. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mamarley/nvidia sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-340

Certain Nvidia drivers do not work very well with certain GPU's, you have to use trial and error with apt-get to find ones that work well, this was the case for me when I had this exact problem.

You have a system that likely uses the Intel hd graphics most the time to save power. This uses nvidia-prime to switch using Optimus technology. For some reason nvidia-prime would cause me problems as well, leaving me with a black screen every time unless I switch to Intel mode (when your screen is back press ctrl-alt-F1, log in, then key in: sudo ...

There are a couple of ways. I realize you've already download proprietary drivers. However, there is a chance you might be able to download support drivers that are already tested and by the community. You might first try running Additional Drivers (System Settings -> Software Updates -> Additional Drivers). You'll most likely conveniently find a ...

If you go into system settings, software and updates, additional drivers should show the broadcom sta driver(aka bcmwl-kernel-source). This driver should work for your wifi

fglrxinfo needs an X display running the fglrx driver. Assuming you have that, if you're trying to run fglrxinfo over SSH or from a TTY it won't have a DISPLAY environment variable set so you'll need to specify it manually, like so: DISPLAY=:0 fglrxinfo Assuming the display is :0.

Nvidia proprietary drivers are available through your ubuntu package manager. Open a terminal and execute the following commands: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current Reboot for the changes to take effect. If you really want to use the nvidia driver downloaded from nvidia, follow these instructions (although they might not work). ...

uname -r isn't properly substituted in the directory path. You should use $(uname -r) in order for the right kernel version to be appended to your path.

Try sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source if uname -a shows a 3.13 kernel, if it shows a 3.16 kernel then download from http://packages.ubuntu.com/utopic/bcmwl-kernel-source as the ubuntu forums broadcom sticky shows that bcmwl-kernel-source as the correct driver for your chipset

You should not need JACK, audio interfaces supporting the USB audio standard (all versions) should work without you having to do anything. In fact, installing JACK may very well be the source of your problems. Usually it is the other way round: USB audio devices work on Linux out of the box while drivers are needed for Windows. The most frequent problem is ...

I found that the correct driver (working well now for two days) is the nvidia-304 which can be installed from repositories.

It means that the system cannot find an appropriate driver for the device (i.e. no driver is 'claiming' it) - it should be supported by the S3 legacy driver, so I'm not sure why that would be the case.

As far as I think, the driver you need to run your adaptor is not a part of Linux kernel. You can download the driver from this link and get it on a usb stick and copy it to your home directory. Once you do that you can follow this link this link to install it.
