How do I access the additional hardware/drivers menu in Loki?
Am I missing something or was this GUI option removed?

  • Anyone know why this menu was removed, or where i can access it now?? Commented Sep 11, 2016 at 18:24

In the terminal:

sudo apt install software-properties-gtk

after install -> software-properties-gtk

Tested and implemented successful here - sure someone with more Linux experience may have an even better suggestion perhaps?

  • @ZacharySutton I read elsewhere that it was done to prevent people from adding PPAs. I would suggest reporting a bug about this.
