Everyone likes screenshots

I thought I'd post a screenshot of the first tool I am working on...


It is a tool to manage and install ndiswrapper drivers (Windows wireless drivers) under Ubuntu. It is mostly functional right now, and I am working on catching all possible errors right now.

  • What is it exactly used for? I mean - the tool?

  • Currently in Ubuntu, if you own a wireless card without native Linux drivers (i.e. Broadcomm, etc), you must use ndiswrapper to install Windows drivers for it. This means typing in commands at the terminal.

    This tool allows someone unfamiliar with the command-line to install ndiswrapper drivers. Dropping to the command-line should almost never be 100% necessary and this is what my SoC project is all about avoiding.

  • dude, that looks really great !
    nice job here, ndiswrapper was not really user-friendly for the driver management.

  • Looks good...

    I was working on a curses version of the same thing (in Python), unaware you were doing the same thing.

    Anyway, congratulations on the bounty, and I hope you make it into Breezy. Ubuntu may not be able to pre-package proprietary drivers like Mepis does, but that's no reason we can't make it easier to get the wireless cards up and running!

  • I would make the hardware plugged|unplugged a seperate column with a clear icon, to the right. Otherwise nice work!

  • Excellent blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little
    lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  • Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i
    was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback?
    If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can
    advise? I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

  • Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely
    off topic but I had to tell someone!
