I am debating on creating a dual boot on a Windows 11 laptop and am running ZorinOS Lite from a USB. I am unable to use internet because it says no network devices available. I am new to linux so I'm not sure where to start. The network card is built into the CPU (Celeron n4020 CPU @ 1.10GHz). Any help would be appreciated.
Unfortunately I don’t. It’s a cheap laptop my wife got that is basically unusable with Windows. I was gonna try to salvage it by going for a lightweight distro. Doesn’t have Ethernet or anything. The network card works on Windows (most of the time, occasionally disappears there too).
It's in located in /media/zorin/KINGSTON. In Thunar, I right-clicked in that directory, chose "Open Terminal Here", and the terminal says zorin@zorin:media/zorin/KINGSTON$.
(The first time I tried, the terminal was indeed not in the right directory and it gave the "no such file or directory" response. After opening a terminal in the right directory, it gives, and only to the 2nd command, "command not found" response.)
If you can tether by phone can you run Software updater, stop it from running then select Settings button, go to first tab and change sources for updates to Main Server and update the system then try the command once more of:
I followed the directions but it already had main server as the source. I checked for updates as well as additional drivers and nothing came up. Ran the prompt and this time I got this back:
