I'm just recently after making the move from Xp to Lubuntu on a Dell Inspiron 1501. After hours of meddling I managed to get the issue with the wireless sorted. (Although I tried so many steps I'm still unsure which one did the trick! ). I find it great, laptop has become practically silent while running and is working great for the basics.
My question is as follows and I'd be grateful for the help, I have tried to use a Lubuntu Live USB on another Dell laptop with the same broadcom issue, is it possible to copy a certain set of folders from the laptop that is working and move them across?
I saw it mentioned on another site while searching the initial problem but cannot remember where!
