Asus M5A78L-M USB3 Motherboard Drivers


Hi guys, just moved over to Linux from windows because of the on going virus attacks on my system, I work in a risky enviroment so yes here I am

Anyway on to the question at hand, Ubuntu 12.10 installed fine, I updated to 13.04 ( think that is what it was ).

I tried to install the Asus drivers from the cd, but it keeps trying to open the .exe setup files in achive manager, I tried using wine and the terminal pops up for about 2 seconds and then closes but nothing happens after that.

I know that .exe are only useable for windows ( hence why I tried using wine )
Is there any way to get the drivers installed from the CD?

There are 2 folders on the CD:

ISOLinux
and
LinuxDrivers

But both only contain .exe files, I tried mounted with Furious ISO but that didn't help at all, so yep I am completely stuck as I can't find anything from the Asus website to help.

Hope someone has the answer to me hellish nightmare, need to get back to work on my servers asap, so any help is much appreciated.

Regards
Osaka Levani

P.S:
Sorry about the bad english, Im Japanese

It does seem odd that the ISOLinux and LinuxDrivers contain only *.exe files seeing as those are not linux compatible. Also installing drivers from wine will probably not work for you. Are you unable to use your USB ports at all, or is this specifically for USB3 support?

Just for curiosity sake, please post an output of lsusb. For example I get something like:

Code:
bash-4.2# lsusb
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 003 Device 012: ID 046d:c52b Logitech, Inc. Unifying Receiver
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 13d3:3362 IMC Networks 
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 064e:d213 Suyin Corp. 
Bus 003 Device 024: ID 05b8:3155 Agiler, Inc.
As far as I am aware, Ubuntu should come with the drivers required, so unless you cannot mount any USB devices I don't know what you are trying to accomplish. Could you explain what you want to get done?

The USB stuff works fine, I noticed all the drivers were installed fine when I installed Ubuntu.
The only driver that did not install was the graphics driver ( RADEON HD 7750 ) I tried a few things people suggested, one seemed to work, but when I checked the system details of it, it came out with something that is completely wrong and has nothing to do with the card.
Also Ubuntu 13.04 is very unstable for me right now, non stop crashes and errors, so will try a different distribution and see how that goes later, moved back onto windows while I am testing different linux os.
Just can't seem to find out why that graphics card wont work.

I have an nvidia card, so installing the drivers is a lot easier for me. I personally don't prefer ubuntu, but if you like the idea of the simplicity (read easy) that it can provide, debian is very similar, and in my experience much more stable. I used debian when I was starting out with linux. Although telling us that you got errors without give examples is kind of useless to the effect of helping you. And I'm still confused by what you were trying to get installed/accomplished in the first place. All said and done, I hope you do give linux another chance, don't let ubuntu ruin the linux community for you.

For future reference, please list actual errors or more specific problems when trying to get an issue solved. It's pretty impossible for anyone to just guess how to fix a problem you make no mention of.

That is what I wanted to know about, I did say it twice I think.
Ubuntu wont ruin Linux, I will find a better version soon.
