Have you tried the auto detecting drivers program that Ubuntu have???
sudo apt get- them ;-)
Well, I dunno, If you don't want to read linux forum (until you finally set up your system) why bother having them,It's free but it's not for everyone... true...
Which wireless card do you have, I may be able to get you a hand, if you like...
lo Interface doesn't support scanning.eth0 Interface doesn't support scanning.wmaster0 Interface doesn't support scanning.wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down
1) sudo apt-get --purge remove b43-fwcutter2) reboot3) sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutter (confirm firmware download)4) reboot
Also I've read that 9.1 is kind of buggy so a lot of people dropped back to 9.04 I know one issue with linux is the wireless support.
almost forgot here's a link to manually download packages gotta love googlehttp://packages.ubuntu.com/
#4 being CuteFTP, way better than any Linux FTP software I've seen.
As for image creation, Gimp sucks.
I personally think Microsoft Office is better than OpenOffice, the latter being very buggy, but the most recent OpenOffice is acceptably close enough.
Unfortunately I have several important programs I use often that have no Linux equivalents. The #1 being AutoDesk Inventor (CAD), and since its processor intensive I shouldn't even use it with Wine. #2 being Vegas Movie Studio (really good movie creation software). #3 being AVR Studio. #4 being CuteFTP, way better than any Linux FTP software I've seen. As for image creation, Gimp sucks.
Take a look at virtualbox (http://www.virtualbox.org/). There is package in official ubuntu repository or you can add the repository from sun to your list of repositories.It's amazingly powerful.
@admin: Here are some download links for premade ubuntu packages for ndiswrapper:http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/n/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper-common_1.54-2ubuntu1_all.debhttp://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/n/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper-utils-1.9_1.54-2ubuntu1_i386.debhttp://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/n/ndisgtk/ndisgtk_0.8.4-1_i386.debAlso, you never specified what wireless card you have.
Chelmi, would you say its better than Wine?

Quote from: Admin on December 14, 2009, 07:10:07 PMChelmi, would you say its better than Wine?Wine emulates apps, virtualbox emulates operating systems.So you could install windows right into Ubuntu, and everything (to a point) that works in Windows would work, unlike wine, where it's really hit or miss.
Virtualbox does not emulate anything. And to be precise, neither does wine (wine is not an emulator). Wine re-implements Windows system APIs on top of Linux.Virtualbox is a virtualization tool. It allows you to run several operating system on the same processor as if they were running on physically separated machines.
What if I already have Windoze on my machine, would another installation be required or can Wine/Virtual box access it no problem?(I'm sure it'll be obvious if I run the software, or read the manual, but I'm feeling lazy )
Hmmm what I'd like to do is be able to access both partitions at the same time.I noticed I can access my Windoze files from Ubuntu automatically, but I'd like to run Windows programs with those files from Ubuntu if possible.(I'm probably asking for too much!)
http://www.fs-driver.org/That will let you mount any ext* filesystem (ubuntu) in windows just like ubuntu mounts ntfs (windows).
It will probably work, but virtualbox offers a better way to share data between the host and the guest os.
It's funny when I see more people came to the same conclusion as I did a couple of years ago.
It kinda gives you a greater respect for Windows, really
What you mean to say is that no linux distrobution can do that without you having to learn something.The equivelent tools are there (even a virus scanner for linux), you're just used to the ones you have now.
