Linux Mint 17.2 - request for firmware files iwlwifi-5000 failed

Post by vix » Mon Jan 22, 2018 12:23 pm

Hi all,
I have Linux Mint 17.2 with Cinnamon in dual boot on my old HP Pavilion dv5.

I cannot login to the GUI anymore and I see there are problems with iwlwifi-5000 firmware files:

Lookig at the /lib/firmare folder these files are missing indeed:

How can I solve this?
Thanks
