    I have some problems with this, I’m new on ubuntu, can you give me an example of how to put eh paths on the terminal please?

    • Well, it is simple actually. First, double click the downloaded file, then extract the contents into a folder, e.g. into the Downloads folder. Then, to open up a terminal, press Ctrl+Alt+T. After the terminal is opened, type ‘cd ~/Downloads/compat-drivers-2013-03-04-u’ and press Enter. Continue with the rest of the commands (lines 2-4).

        I did it, no idea of what I’m doing wrong. I’ve got the path from the propieties, so I think is right. What do you think is the problem? thanks ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ cd [/home/ubuntu/Downloads/compat-drivers-2013-03-04-u] bash: cd: [/home/ubuntu/Downloads/compat-drivers-2013-03-04-u]: No such file or directory

        • No, ignore the square bracket. It should be like this: cd ~/Downloads/compat-drivers-2013-03-04-u

    I have a Lenovo G505 after testing out ubuntu 13.04 using the ‘Try It’ option I noticed everything worked ok, keyboard, mouse, network lan/wifi. After installing it permanently the network lan/wifi didn’t work. I was able to fix this issue by re-installing ubuntu 13.04 – from scratch. when I installed it first i chose ‘re-install’ and I guess the drivers became corrupt or something. Ubuntu 13.04 work perfectly on Lenovo G505 laptop with Qualcomm Atheros QCA8172 network driver.

    what if just after running the second line terminal says permission denied? =

    • You should be running it as root, otherwise you’ll get the permission error.
