Working Broadcom wireless in Kubuntu live session

This turns out to be pretty easy now, although there isn’t any U/I for it.

sudo jockey-text -a

Then configure wifi normally.

I expect that clicking on hardware drivers to get the GUI version of jockey would work too, but didn’t test it, so no promises.

This post is being drafted from a live CD session that I activated this way.

    The jockey GUI worked exactly the same for my Dad’s Dell laptop with BCM4312 (rev.1). The alternate CD doesn’t include the driver for some reason, only the live version.
