    Sorry, I am out of ideas to address your issue . It is above my skill set to know why the modules do not install.

    A know-it-all I am not

    By the way, do you think that everything would be sorted out if I installed the regular Ubuntu instead of Mate? I really need to get this to work, so I want to find the simplest solution to the problem.

    RedChili; Uh Huh ..

    A re-install stands the chance of being the fastest resolution .
    Be aware that in optimus there is a lot of work that has been done .. and Alberto has a call out for help.

    I'll try to install the regular Ubuntu then. Could I install it alongside Mate, or do I have to format the hard drive before installing regular Ubuntu?

    A bit of thought is in order here - the easiest method is to choose "install along side" and let the installer do it's thing.

    many paths to an end
