comment No drivers listed?/How to install all drivers? 12.10
But there is nothing listed under Additional Drivers.... That is my problem. I have no idea what to do about that. I open Additional Drivers in settings and there is nothing there.

Cool thanks, but now when i follow that link and go to the Additional drivers and whatnot there's nothing listed? Like there's no drivers being recognized? or what does that mean when there's nothing there?
