    Question Help Please,=! Ubuntu 16.04 and Broadcom BCM43142 offline installation

    Hi, can anyone help me get a Broadcom BCM43412 14e4:4365 working on a HP Stream.

    Lubuntu 16.04 beta2 The kernel is 4.4.0-15.generic

    The problem I have is that there is no ethernet connection on this machine so the install needs to be done offline, Please treat me like a noob

    Many thanks in advance for any solution.

    Once again thanks for your help. I can confirm these files are not in the Lubuntu medium however I managed to install the wifi by connecting my phone (Gal S4) as a USB modem (using my home wifi) and doing update, upgrade and dist-upgrade and reboot. After that I was able to use the additional drivers from preferences menu and install the Broadcom BCM43142 with the Linux STA Wireless bcmwl-kernel-source (proprietary)

    Hi,
    You could have also moved the 2 .deb files
    From your Kubuntu install usb to your Lubuntu home directory
    Boot to Lubuntu,open a terminal, ctrl/alt/t
    insert the Kubuntu install usb and do..

    Code:
    cp /media/*/pool/main/d/dkms/*.deb dk.deb
    
    cp /media/*/pool/restricted/b/bcmwl/*.deb wl.deb
    This copies both .deb files from the Kubuntu install usb,
    now named "dk.deb and wl.deb" to the Lubuntu home directory
    Then install..
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i *.deb
