Re: [Ubuntu-US-NM] help with my linux

ndisgtk is in the universe repos. To enable the Universe repos go to...

System -> Administration -> Synaptic Package Manager -> Settings ->

Make sure that there is a check next to..

"Community-maintained Open Source software"

Once this is checked click "CLOSE" then click the "RELOAD" button.

After the reload finishes click search and do a search for
"ndisgtk" (without the quotes).

Now click on the box next to ndisgtk and select "Mark for Installation" 

Lastly click the "apply" button.

Hope this helps..
