Re: Cannot connect to ethernet with wired connection
Yes, you can install what's missing:
There is some possibility that these packages, too, have missing dependencies that need to be installed. In a few hours or days, I'm sure you'd get it. You could, alternatively install 12.10 and download and install linux-image-3.5.0-25 where your device is supported by default.
Package g++ is not installed.
Package dpkg-dev is not installed.
Package linux-headers-3.2.0-38-generic is not installed.
