Ubuntu: B43 driver installation problems


So, I'm attempting to install the wireless driver for my bc4311 wireless card using the following command:

sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer  

But I get to see the following message:

Unable to locate package firmware-b43-installer  

Any suggestions?


If you are using 12.04 or higher just run this command:

sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree  sudo modprobe b43   


One workaround would be to find the package respective to your version at http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=firmware-b43-installer, select the appropriate architecture, download, and install through Ubuntu Software Center or

sudo dpkg -i [path to downloaded file]

Also make sure you have the dependencies.
