In Ubuntu distros, there is a software and updates tool where one can check for Additional Drivers suggestion and install them. I am using a dell laptop and i find that i need to use this tool to install the drivers "Using Processor microcode firmware for intel CPUs from intel-microcode" without it my wifi fails. But i don't see such an option in Bodhi linux. I searched for Software and Updates tool or the Additional Drivers tool. So i assume this can only be done by terminal in Bodhi. Can someone describe me the steps in detail?





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

This is done automatically now within the kernel.

We don't have to do anything by ourselves.

 

But we can verify this for ourselves by

dmesg | grep microcode

If output has  "microcode updated early to revision 0xyy", it is okay and done.

 

[edit - errata]

Sorry , it does not come with stock Bodhi.

We can install intel-ucode by

sudo apt-get install microcode.ctl intel-microcode

Reboot.

ps: apologies - I've modified my Bodhi so much I've forgotten I've done this.

Take care.
