What drivers are you trying to install?
Why do you need to connect to Wifi using the terminal?

The Intel graphic driver is in the kernel and should load automatically when you boot. There are no proprietary Intel drivers you can load. The open-source nouveau driver will load for the Nvidia GPU. You do not need the proprietary Nvidia driver at this point because your system defaults to using the Intel graphics.
The audio drivers also load from the kernel and the information you provided earlier indicate they all loaded.

If you do not have internet working then perhaps you need a different Wifi driver, but I do not understand why you think you need audio or graphics card drivers.
Can you provide the inxi data for us? To do that, please open the System Reports app and click the System Information tab on the left. Your computer's information should come up in the right pane. Then click Copy, and paste the results into a reply window here so we can see how Linux Mint views your hardware.
If you can not get it from your installed version, maybe you can get it from a live session version.

No, they do not need to be installed manually. For most people all the drivers they need are already included with the kernel and or the operating system and will load automatically. There are some exceptions for very new or specialized equipment for which proprietary drivers might be needed.
The display app should save the change when you click the Apply button. If it is not, there may be a bug.
This data shows you need to update your system. Open Update Manager and install the updates available there. There have been quite a few updates for Cinnamon. Maybe one of the updates will fix the fragmentation issue.Warlock1111 wrote: ↑Sat Oct 01, 2022 8:26 aminxi -Fxxxmprz [/code] i hope that i wll help find the solution
inxi -Fxxxmprzagain so we can see if the updates helped. I'll then explain how to get the proprietary Nvidia drivers, if you want them.
which i would assume would require an internet connection which bring me back to the question.This data shows you need to update your system.

That is a completely new issue and I recommend you make a new topic in the Networking section of the forum and make sure to copy and paste your inxi output from this post. By providing that information and posting on that forum, the people who normally answer Wifi questions will see your issue and help you. I do not normally help with Wifi issues.

Your Wifi driver is showing as installed, but I do not know why it is not up and running. There are a variety of reasons that can happen, so it is better if you create a new topic.

Your issue of "Mint can't boot" was solved quite a while ago and this topic should be marked solved.
You're welcome. Please go to your first post in this topic, click the pencil icon, and add [SOLVED] to the beginning of the title so others know you are no longer seeking help on this issue. (animated gif courtesy of user BJZilberman)
