Adding repositories thru synaptic doesnt work always. So open a terminal and hit:thartley wrote:Bianca has the drivers for this card, Ubuntu doesn't. I tried to add Mint's repository, but I must have made an error because it didn't want to work correctly. It said it couldn't find certain things. I don't recall now what the actual problems were. I thought maybe I had to install Bianca in order to get the drivers. I'd be glad to try it again and post the messages.
I would mainly like to add the Airlink drivers from Bianca, but I also like the features of the MintDesk. If there is a way to get both those things without a full install, I'd be okay with that.

What do you make of this?
You must force ndiswrapper-utils-1.1, not ndiswrapper-utils. If had understood that ndiswrapper-utils-1.1 appears but was not installed. Does it appear in synaptic?thartley wrote:, but when I highlight ndiswrapper-utils under the Package column and then pull down the Package pulldown, the Force Version choice is grayed out.
Do you think this could be the result of using the Ubuntu alternate-i386 installation instead of the full version?
Did you install the version I mention above?thartley wrote:Hi mintero,
I edited the menu.lst file. It took a couple of trys before I realized I had to hold down the ESC key while booting to get the version choices to show up. Unfortunately, the only choices I have are 2.6.15-28-386, 2.6.15-27-386 and 2.6.15-26-386. It says my version of GRUB is 0.97.
Is it looking more like an issue with the Ubuntu alternate-i386 version?
