    Of course, you are right. Apologies to all for misplaced rant.

    Re: Installing B43 legacy drivers in Xubuntu

    DuckHook,

    I have the same problem as OP. I did what you advised I have received this at step #8 (two separate text boxes)

    "Please insert the disk labeled:
    Xubuntu 12.04.1 LTS _Precise Pangolin_ - Release amd64 (20120817.3)
    in drive /cdrom/


    Some of the packages could not be retrieved from the server(s).
    Do you want to continue, ignoring these packages?"

    HELP PLEASE?

    I suspect that in Software Sources>Other Software, you have CD-ROM checked (meaning that you want the system to check every time the CD-ROM from which you installed) and at the same time, you don't have Ubuntu Software>multiverse checked. Try turning off the CD-Rom and turning on multiverse, then going through step 8 again. Multiverse is strung out to be "Software restricted by copyright or legal issues (multiverse)" on my versions of Ubuntu. The "Software Sources" dialogue box can be found in Update Manager>Settings.

    Thank You Thank You! This solved my problem! For some unknown reason, there was 4 CDROMs that I had to uncheck (?).

    DuckHook, thank you for the quick response to my PM.

    Glad to help. I see you are new to the forum so, welcome to the community. Despite my earlier rant, it's a great OS and an even greater worldwide movement. Hope you end up enjoying Linux as much as I do.
