I have a Cubox-i4Pro and I'm running Xubuntu on it. In order to get Wi-Fi working I have to copy the firmware folder "brcm" from /usr/lib/firmware/brcm and make the folder /lib/firmware/brcm. Refer to the article here.


After that, I have to do other stuff. If I may get some help so that I can use Wi-Fi on my Cubox-iPro that would be great. I have to do all this as root so I have to do it all from the terminal. Thanks. :)

P.S. I already know how to get to root. (In the terminal) Is there a way to log in as root so that I can do these things using the Dekstop? There is no root login on the login screen. xD All comments are appreciated.

EDIT: I also need help with the rest of the steps. This step has been solved.


To copy the firmware folder to /lib:

sudo cp /usr/lib/firmware /lib -R

To make a symbolic link (or softlink/symlink) to /usr/lib/modules/3.10.30-20-ARCH in /lib/modules:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/modules/3.10.30-20-ARCH /lib/modules/3.10.30-20-ARCH

Be careful, though. This looks like a path that depends on the kernel version. The modules folder may not even exist.

  • I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 on a Xubuntu Desktop Environment. – Nathan Morris Aug 24 '14 at 18:48

  • Yeah. This is the ARCH Linux Kernel. It's a G'Zipped Kernel and runs on an ARM processor. It's a cute little PC though. 2 GBs RAM and a quad core each at 1.0 GHz. – Nathan Morris Aug 24 '14 at 19:00
  • Error, the directory /lib/modules doesn't exist. :\ Now what? And the article is found here... solid-run.com/community/topic1269.html I would recommend reading it so that you can further understand what I'm going through. Sorry to bug so much. I just really want to get Wi-Fi working before I go on vacation so that I can use the Wi-Fi at the hotel. – Nathan Morris Aug 24 '14 at 19:07
  • @NathanMorris using another distro's kernel is a bit beyond my expertise, so unaccept my answer, then edit and update your question to show what you have already done (all steps) (also change the title to state the main problem). I'll update my answer if I can figure it out, but it's best to leave the question open so that others will look into it. – muru Aug 24 '14 at 19:24
