I had to reinstall ubuntu 13.04 image on my new System76 Ratel desktop. I've done that. I read here: http://knowledge76.com/index.php/Restoring_Your_System that to compete the isntalltion I need to install the System76 Driver (I show how below). I do a little digging on whether I *reallly* need to do this for the Ratel desktop and I've come to the conclusion that this box doesn't need it. Obviously Im not 100% confident about this conclusion so I'm phoning a friend (so to speak) to sanity check this decision. Any one know? Note I'm a little weary of installing software that isn't absolutely essential. Thanks for any input.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:system76-dev/stable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install system76-driver
