    Basically, you can't install Windows drivers in Linux; you need Linux drivers.
    Ubuntu 17.04 Mate, Mint 18.1 Mate; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    Different operating system (ubuntu) -> different concepts. In ubuntu downloading and installing outside (oem) drivers is a means of last resort. The kernel within ubuntu , most of the time, finds and loads the needed drivers.
    In the event that something does not work upon initial install then:
    With a wired internet connection available, ->
    Software sources; 3rd party software sources enabled;
    ubuntu Software Center; update and upgrade installed packages,
    alternately - from the Command Line Interface (aka: terminal),
     sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade
    Now one opens up the "Additional Drivers" utility (location of that utility varies with installed version) and install any recommended drivers.

    just as easy as that
    THE current(cy) in Documentation:

    Happy ubuntu'n !
