Depends on the distro. I run Linux Mint 19 Tara, which is a Ubuntu variant, and I just click a button to find drivers. Might not be the same for other distros.
One advantage of Linux is that you are not subject to drive by downloads, and to install a program of any kind requires you to input your password. Linux is pretty much virus proof, which is one reason that viruses targeting Linux platforms are pretty much non-existent. Key loggers don't work with Linux either.
