    12.04 and ndiswrapper modprode "FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found"

    Just a heads up for people with ndiswrapper problems (I crawled the Ubuntu forum and didn't really find this; the info was aggregated from several other sites.)

    If you're using an older version of ndiswrapper, and you have the gui AND the program interface (and ndiswrapper even shows that the hardware is attached) but when you modprobe, you're getting this:

    FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found

    It means you need to install
    ndiswrapper-source
    ndiswrapper-dkms
    ndiswrapper-common
    (And of course, install ndiswrapper-utils-1.9)

    None of which appear to be "Dependencies" for ndiswrapper, but without which it simply does not work.

    Apologies if this is already posted somewhere, but when I was looking for it, I saw several people asking, but no definitive answers.

    Cheers!

    P.S. My install was Xubuntu Alternate. Your experience may vary. ; )

    This post saved me a whole lot of time and frustration. I had the same problem (xfce, ubuntu 12.04 on an old steam-driven Toshiba Satellite laptop), and the solution worked just fine.

    Thanks!

    Thank you a lot!

    Re: 12.04 and ndiswrapper modprode "FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found"

    I'm running Linux Mint 13 Maya 64bit

    I installed ndiswrapper-common 1.57
    I get fatal module not found after going to terminal
    and inputting sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

    I have the file pasted in home/usb. is it suppose to be in usr/src? Because when I try to paste it in there, it says I don't have access rights, even though I'm the only user with admin rights.

    Please, I'm very new to linux so you have to break it down preschool style to me. I appreciate the help. BTW, this is all in an attempt to get my netgear n300 usb driver to work.

    I'm running Mint 14 (MATE) and following the advice give above has NOT helped...I'm still getting the Fatal Error...can't find ndiswrapper module.

    I'm at a loss ...

    Does not seem to work on a Linux Mint 14 (Cinnamon) 64bit either. But I have read on another forum that Ndiswrapper will only work for 32 bit machines or AMD 64 bit machines (i.e. that it does not work on intel 64 bit machines)

    Me too, and I'm on 32-bit. Hating this cord stretched across the living room...
