  1. Ubuntu 14.04 WiFi works GREAT from my Late 2007 WMB 2.16

    No firmware needed..

    Does NOT work from my Late 2008 A1278 Unibody AL 13…

    Says needs WiFi firmware.

    I'm not very good at using Terminal..

    HELP!

    J.C.

  2. why does it say: E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock – open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?

  3. Hahaha, this is useless and typical Linux user, does not explain where they get their info from, a magic white sheet with commands laid out for them. Be nice if Linux users bothered explaining what they are doing and why these commands, though I suspect the reason they don't is that they don't understand it themselves. they just remember the words.

  4. I am new to Ubuntu, i just install Ubuntu 17.04 my wifi card is not detected. so i followed your video,but the drive was not install and it show drsbalamurugan@drsbalamurugan-Inspiron-1440:~$ sudo apt-get install b43-fwcutterE: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock – open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable)
    E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), is another process using it?
    how to fix it.

  5. This guy is a fucking genius. To install drivers for the wireless card that I need to get wifi connection, he says, type in a command that downloads shit from the internet.

  6. All of you with no internet connecton, ….just connect your phone to your compuer and use USB tethering to use your phone's internet connection. lol can't believe no one's thought of this!
