Install closed drivers

Posted by

While listening to the excellent Ubuntu Podcast I found out about the ubuntu-drivers command. It is essentially the command line version of the nice UI to install binary graphics and network drivers. Here are the details:

ubuntu-drivers list        # Show all driver packages which apply to the current system.
ubuntu-drivers devices     # Show all devices which need drivers, and which packages apply to them.
ubuntu-drivers autoinstall # Install drivers that are appropriate for automatic installation.
ubuntu-drivers debug       # Print all available information and debug data about drivers.
