I have Ubuntu 14.04 and Debian-7.4-Standard on my Acer Aspire One laptop.
I have Standard Debian OS which is command-line only. In the Debian OS I am not able to connect to the web through my wi-fi. I am missing the needed drivers.
So far I have downloaded
firmware-nonfree_0.36+wheezy.1.tar.gz in my Ubuntu OS and placed it into my home directory in my Debian OS. But now what? Any ideas on how I can install my needed driver from there?
I managed to make some ground. What I did was to download from my Ubuntu system the
firmware-linux-nonfree_0.36+wheezy.1_all.deb file and placed it into my home directory in my Debian system. Then I booted into my Debian OS and from my home directory as a superuser I ran the command
dpkg -i firmware-linux-nonfree_0.36+wheezy.1_all.deb
and then rebooted the system. Now my display looks much better, but I still am unable to connect the system to the web. As a result I am still unable to use
apt-get update. At least the firmware problem is now solved.
