xenopeek wrote:Exactly my question Normally you wouldn't need to install drivers as the kernel comes with drivers for most hardware devices and peripherals. There are exceptions though, with some manufacturers not contributing open source drivers to the kernel. You may check by in your menu going to Preferences > Software Sources, and click on the Additional Drivers tab. Here it will display if it found any proprietary (closed source) drivers for your system. But if all is working fine, you do not need to install these.
If you want more help, it is useful if you can share some specifics from your hardware. Open a terminal and run the following command. Share the output here. You can copy text to/from the terminal, see its Edit menu.
