I want to know if the Canon imageCLASS MF3240 is a postscript printer? Other question is there any way for the driver to work under ubuntu 12.04.5?


do you have instruction manual ?
you may be able to print from the printer a settings summary which may show the language the printer is expecting ./
there may be a way for a windows driver to work in ubuntu it is done by either finding a ubuntu driver for the printer (which seems really hard to find) or mucking around using ndiswrapper utility to try and manipulate a driver to work in ubuntu.

Wg311 driver ubuntu


Click on "More Apps" and select "Accessories." Click on the "Terminal" link to open the Terminal console.


Navigate to "System" and select "Administration."

Select the "Synaptic Package Manager" and enter "ndiswrapper" as a search term.


Select the files "ndisgtk," "ndiswrapper-utils-1.9" and "ndiswrapper-common" at the results page. Click "Apply" to install "ndiswrapper."


Enter "ndiswrapper --h" into the console to verify that the software is installed. If the installation is successful, you should see a list of command-line options in the console.


Use the "cd" command to navigate to the location of the WG311's drivers (i.e., "cd "WG311v3 V1.0/Driver/[current Windows version]").

Enter "sudo ndiswrapper --i WG311v3.INF" to install the drivers onto Ubuntu.


Verify that the driver was installed by entering "ndiswrapper --l" into the console.

Enter "sudo modprobe ndiswrapper" into the console to install the kernel module.


If the console does not respond to the command, restart the system and enter it again.

Enter "iwconfig" to verify the command's execution.


The command should produce a "wlan0" network interface with a number of details listed. Enter "sudo ndiswrapper --m" to ensure that "ndiswrapper" loads upon startup

Is an HP ENVY 6-1010us Sleekbook linux compatable?


Get the ndiswrapper program so you can use your Windows wireless driver on Ubuntu. It'll work. First connect to your ethernet port. Use Synaptic Package Manager and begin typing your search for 'ndiswrapper'. Checkmark it for installation.r+avycqxphsdhnqaaaaasuvork5cyii=

Drivers for ubuntu?


Thank you for using FixYa
If you do not already have it then go to this web site for Ubuntu and load Ndiswrapper and follow the instructions.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/Ndiswrapper

I have ubuntu core and I recently bought a generic adaptor and plugged it in and it worked. I hope you have this success. Once you load it go into your control panel then system and look for "Windows Wireless Adaptor" tool and click on it.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Hi i am using ubuntu linux i need install netgear usb adapter wg111v3 how can i install in ubuntu please help me


NETGEAR does not offer any offcial drivers for the adapter to work on Ubuntu as they dont support Linux OS. However, you may try third party drivers to install the adapter on Ubuntu. Try the below link:

Hope this helps.

Trying to install wireless adapter on ubuntu operating system it say onley for windows xp or vista is there software out there for ubuntu


The simplest solution is to use NDISWrapper, which lets Ubuntu use the WIndows drivers for your wireless adapter. Information on how to do this is at the Ubuntu documentation site here.

Hope this helps you get connected, and thanks for using Fixya!

I am running Ubuntu 9.04 and cannot get the Dynex Wireless-N Usb 2.0 adapter to work. i tried using the drivers that come with the cd. i clicked and dragged the .inf file into the Windows Network Drivers...


Standalone I don't think your Dynex Wireless G/Model DX-BUSB wireless card is supported by the Linux kernel or any third party drivers. You can try use ndiswarpper.

cd ~/folder that has your driver

sudo ndiswrapper -i [your inf file]

sudo ndiswrapper -l

now it should say:
driver installed, device present
sudo ndiswrapper -m
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
that should start the driver, and in a few minutes, you'll have a working internet connection.

Wireless problem


I'm Guessing your using Ubuntu 7.04... Due to a bug in the native driver shipped with Ubuntu, the wireless card on this laptop is detected and installed but you cannot find any wireless networks. Here’s how to fix it.
* Let’s disable the native Ubuntu driver. Type this in a terminal:
gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
and insert at the very end of the file:
# buggy broadcom wireless driver
blacklist bcm43xx

* Next, do this in a terminal:
sudo rmmod bcm43xx
* Now, let’s download and install the windows driver for the wireless card. You have to download it from the Dell support website. Click here to download it.
Or you can use the direct link to the executable:
http://ftp.us.dell.com/network/R140747.EXE
Since it’s a windows self-extracting executable, you need wine to use it:
sudo apt-get install wine
then:
wine <path_to_R140747.EXE>
Replace <path_to_R140747.EXE> with the actual physical path to the file you downloaded from the Dell support website. Follow the instructions and extract the files to a folder of your choice. Alternatively, you could extract the files on a windows machine and copy them over to your ubuntu system.
* Now, let’s install ndiswrapper. We need it to load the windows driver.
sudo aptitude install ndisgtk ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
* Let’s install the windows driver:
sudo ndiswrapper -i <location_of_bcmwl5.inf_file>
Replace <location_of_bcmwl5.inf_file> with the path to the bcmwl5.inf file you extracted earlier.
* Let’s make sure the driver is installed:
sudo ndiswrapper -l
You should get something like this:
bcmwl5 : driver installed
device (14E4:4311) present (alternate driver: bcm43xx)

* Now we need to set up ndiswrapper to load our new driver automatically:
sudo gedit /etc/modules
and add a new line that says:
ndiswrapper
That’s it, restart your laptop. During the restart, the wiFI LED should light up. If it doesn’t, try the Fn + F2 key combination. After the reboot, configure your network settings:
System -> Administration -> Networking
Enable the wireless connection and tinker with the connection settings if you need to. You may have to disable the wired connection because wireless and wired connections may not work simultaneously - your mileage may vary in this regard.
Note:
It seems Network Manager prevents the card from connecting to detected wireless networks. I advise you to remove it if you can detect wireless networks but cannot connect to them. To do this, type the following in a terminal:
sudo apt-get –purge remove network-manager network-manager-gnome
Alternatively, you can open Synaptic and remove these two packages.
* Summary:
1.) Install ndiswrapper
sudo apt-get install ndisgtk ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9
2.) Install the windows wireless driver
sudo ndiswrapper -i <location_of_bcmwl5.inf_file>
Remember to replace <location_of_bcmwl5.inf_file> with the actual path to the location of the bcmwl5.inf file
3,) Make sure the card has been detected and installed
ndiswrapper -l
4.) Disable the native ubuntu wireless driver
gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
Insert at the very end of the file:
# buggy broadcom wireless driver
blacklist bcm43xx
5.) Remove Network Manager if it gives you problems
sudo apt-get –purge remove network-manager network-manager-gnome
Reboot
You wireless card should be working flawlessly now.

I Hope this helps :)
Cheers
