LXQt and Wifi connection


(Uros) #1

I have LXQt 0.13.0 installed on ACER ASPIRE ONE laptop. The Wifi connection does not work on this system. Wired connection works normally. Wifi APoint is set to DHCP.

What do I have to do?

THX.

Broadcom Inc. and subsid. BCM4312 802.11b/g

How? I am new in Linux. :slight_smile:

You should ask or search in the forums of your distro.

Common guys… please help me.

LXQt only is the desktop environment, the wifi connection is done in a lower level. Broadcom is problematic, if your distribution is *ubuntu or lubuntu, you should look at this http://askubuntu.com/questions/55868/installing-broadcom-wireless-drivers

Yes, when I started my computer, on screen writes LUBUNTU. When I go to the “About the system”, is witten LXQt 0.13.0.

then better go to lubuntu support channels, here you can find them: https://lubuntu.me/links/ anyway, the link of askubuntu I put earlier is the same link I would give in the lubuntu support channels. But is better to continue this conversation there and not here.

I found the solution.

Just wired connect to the Internet.

Open a terminal window (ctrl-alt-t), and run the command:

sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source

And reboot the computer.
