I decided to try out the new XFCE CE on the LiveCD to test it out with my wireless card (TEW-424UB, it uses the RTL8187B driver) and was impressed that it worked right away. After installing the new version on my laptop, the wireless just seems to refuse to work. I went through the mintWifi wiki, attempted to load the windows drivers using ndiswrapper, and even attempted to use the force, but to no avail. Any ideas?
Prior to this, I was using the regular Gnome version of Felicia and everything worked fine, I just like that XFCE uses less resources and would prefer that over Gnome.
