    Unhappy Wirless & Visual Effects

    Ok, I got this hp Pavillion dv4 laptop which came with Vista.
    I installed ubuntu 9.10.
    The problem is my wireless doesnt seem to work;
    the visual effects also do not seem to take effect when activated.
    I need some help here.

    According to this web page, the wireless on that computer should "just work":

    At the top-right of your screen, next to the volume control icon, there should be a network manager icon. If you right-click on it, select edit connections, wireless, add, then you need your router's ID, encryption type and password.

    If you don't have the network manager icon, you might open Accessories/Terminal, enter the command lspci, and look for the exact brand and model of your wireless adapter. Then you can pump that into Google along with the word "linux".
