Restricted Drivers fail to install

Bug #162897 reported by xl_cheese on 2007-11-15
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
restricted-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

On a fresh install of Ubuntu 7.10 I need to enable the restricted drivers for the ATI video card and the broadcom wireless adapter.

This bug is aimed at directing new users to the proper methods of getting their drivers installed. MORE DOCUMENTATION within ubuntu please. When I click on the network icon to connect to a wireless network there is absolutely nothing that directs me to the restriced drivers manager. My computer just fails to connect and that's it. We need a couple of bullets under a help tab that directs someone to the proper method of installing the wireless driver.

Once in restricted drivers I was unable to install them. Again, no documentation telling the user that they need to enable more repositories to be able to install the restricted drivers. Only an error message complaining about a missing package. Please add another line stating the User may need to enable additional repositories and how they would go about doing it.
