  1. Hey,
    I have installed ‘Loki’ on my computer and works well. But I hadn’t selected the option to install Wifi drivers while installing, and now I’m not able to connect to WiFi. Can you please help me out?

    • Open terminal and try installing drivers via command:

      sudo apt update && sudo ubuntu-drivers debug && sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
      • I’ve same problem. I’ve try what you said up there. But its not working. Or i should add-apt-repository first, then run what you type up there?
