I saw those earlier and definitely used them. I just wanted something earlier if possible. Thanks.

The particular firmware still didn't work for me to solve the problem, but the methodology was perfect. (I believe it's a hardware issue and will take it apart soon.) Two questions: (1) I needed to sudo rmmod and modprobe. Is that typical? (2) My firmware was installed in /lib/firmware not /usr/local/lib/firmware. Does it matter? Thanks again!

comment How can I replace Xubuntu with Lubuntu on a Windows XP laptop?
I second bodhi.zazen's comment. If you recently installed Xubuntu, I'm sure you don't have a ton of data. A clean install into the Xubuntu partition is absolutely the way to go. If you don't know how to do that, just ask and we'll give some pointers...

comment How to create .desktop files and new menu without alacarte?
There's only a few categories. You can't just make up random ones like "mymenu". :) Check out the main category list here: standards.freedesktop.org/menu-spec/…

There were a few comments above regarding this question already being asked. If someone decides to delete this question, please import this answer. This was EXACTLY what I was looking for and 10 times easier than anything found at: askubuntu.com/questions/24609/… . Thanks, Mrokii!

I wish I could post pictures straight into the post, but I don't have enough "cred" I guess... Sorry.
