Hi,

I am pretty new to using Ubuntu and I am on 9.04 64bit version fully updated. I have been able to google my way through configurations and customisations but I haven't been able to get this solved. I would be happy just getting any driver to work not necessarily the proprietary one.

I am on a Dell Inspiron 1521 and here is my lshw
