    Ubuntu Drivers?
    Installed Ubuntu on to my computer and now I do not know where to get the drivers for it, so my network card will work and what not. Also, how do I connect my magic mouse in linux?

    Does the NIC not work out of the box? What Mac do you have? It's hard to help if we don't know the hardware.

    Specs:
    iMac late 2007 10.11.b4, iMac 2008 10.10.5, Macbook2007 10.7.5, Mac Mini 10.7.5, iPhone 3GS Note 8!!
    I was going to ask the same thing Vansmith did earlier but was up all night cleaning a Virus ridden windows system so laid down for a while.

    What Mac do you have? Model? Specs? I can take any recent Ubuntu Live CD and boot up my C2D Mac Mini and Networking, (both WiFi and Wired) both work. Same with any recent Open Suse Live CD.

    Tell us more so we can better help you. Also which Ubuntu version are you running? Are you booting right from the Live CD or installing it? If installing how? Bootcamp? a VM?

    I have a late 2008 Macbook, and I installed in on my windows side. I am running Ubuntu 10.10. I actually found documentation on the ubuntu help site. Everything is working perfectly. I even got my magic mouse to work Thanks!
