    My problem is I can't see Ubuntu well enough to download the driver and install it. I did dl it but in my windoze os. What is the procedure for me to dl it from root in ubuntu and the procedure to install it from root? I think I can at least get to root.
    Thanx

    SOLVED: I was able to see well enough to transfer the chrome9.83-242-u804 to my desktop in ubuntu. I then shutdown and booted into the root and installed the driver from there. So far it is working well. I am now going for the compiz 3d and see what happens.
