Hi Leslie,

This problem can be solved by enabling restricted repository.

GUI-based repository management is normally accomplished via "Software Sources". This interface can be accessed via several methods. For the latest versions of Ubuntu, the easiest way is to go through the "Ubuntu Software Center". Open the software center, then from the Edit menu select "Software Sources". You will have to enter your password to change settings in this window.

For older versions of Ubuntu, there are several options:

1. Main Menu: System > Administration > Software Sources.Check "Proprietary Drivers for Devices (Restricted)" box.

2. Synaptic : System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager : >> Settings >> Repositories.

3. Main Menu: Ubuntu Software Center : >> Edit, Software Sources.

Synaptic Package Manager
