Fedora Installation :: Clicked Network Icon On The Right Top Corner Of The Screen, Only Two Option Came Out:Wired - Cable UnpluggedNetwork Setting?
Jun 6, 2011
just installed Fedora 15 on my laptop Samsung RF511Everything works perfectly fine but It seems that I cannot connect to the internet.When I clicked Network icon on the right top corner of the screen, only two option came out:Wired - cable unpluggedNetwork setting.How do I solve this problem. Since the laptop is not connected to the internet, I cannot use command yum.P.S. Samsung RF511 using Broadcom.
Another question, My laptop has two graphic cards. Intel and Nvidia Optimus.Can Fedora 15 use the Nvidia card?Please tell me step by step or send me a link tutorial for beginner to setup my internet since I am very new at linux.
I have installed fedora 13 on my dell inspiron 14 r laptop recently.but no network icon is shown on top right corner.well i tried from system menu list and manually configured it.i have wired connection and tried my best but unable to browse the net.
1. It shows root@localhost kostia, but during the installation of Fedora 13 DVD x86 I renamed localhost.localdomain into baikal as my laptop name. Very strange error. On static PC I used amour name and it works without localhost.
2. Above you can see my list of initial cards. I wish to know where is it my ethernet card? The bug #2 is that after Fedora was installed, I can't see any connections in my Network Manager. So I created Wired one myself. After that I still can't see the icon in the top-right corner to restart the connection as usually we may do that. So, what is wrong? How to make my laptop going to the Internet.
language-pack-en, language-pack-en-base, language-pack-kde-en, language-pack-kde-en-base, libsoup2.4-1, libsoup-gnome2.4-1, pm-utils today on my laptop. Some hours later, I had to force the computer to shut down by pressing the power button, since it got totally lagged when I started it after an automatic sleep due to no power left. I started it, logged in and saw that the network manager was unmanaged. I got that message when I clicked the icon at the right-bottom bar.
So, I tried with "ifconfig" in a Terminal, as root.Therefor, I did "sudo ifconfig eth1 up", and the same with eth0. The network manager did not work anyways. I killed it using "sudo killall -9 knetworkmanager" and started it with "knetworkmanager" from the Terminal. The icon got removed and it appeared again, but nothing changed - it said "network manager disables", as before.I logged off and select "Restart X server" from the login screen. I logged in again and tried. Didn't work. When I restarted my computer I saw that eth0 and eth1 was down again. I took them up and then I checked the hardware settings. I saw that I could use either KNetworkManager, Fake Net or Wicd. I tried to locate if I had Wicd or Fake Net installed, but I hadn't.
Neither the wireless or the wired connection works now. I'd like to know how to fix the Network Manager, or whatever is wrong. Also, I'd like to know if I can install Wicd using a CD or something. Maybe Wicd works better, I have no idea. I'm using Kubuntu 10.04, the final release.
After a recent dist-upgrade I have lost my network.There is no Network manager icon in the top corner.My switch and the RJ45 port on the PC are both lit green and connected. There is an internet connection from the other PC on the LAN.I am now able to ping the other PC on the LAN but still no internet!My router is at 192.168.0.1 so I have also tried:sudo route add default gw 192.168.0.1.
I have 2 workstations that I'm trying to network together so that I can backup each to the other. One is XP sp2 and the other Fedora 9. Since installing Samba on the Fedora box and trying to get it configured, I have a problem that Add/remove programs won't do installs because it says there's no connection to a network. Network Manager says there aren't any connections, but it worked before the Samba install. Mozilla and Thunderbird can access the internet OK. Both workstations are connected by cable to my router and thus to my ISP (DNS server).
Two questions:- where can I find hints on setting up a wired connection (which card's MAC address does it want? router or wrkstn?) and Am I right that Add/remove is stuffed because of Network Manager?I now have Samba working from Linux to XP, but still can't get into Linux from XP. I tried the Linux PC's MAC address and set up a wired connection in Network Manager. NM still thinks there isn't one...
I am a complete noob with computers, especially when Linux is installed.The problem is that when I plug in my wired network cable - it just dont connect. Writes "disconnected".I do not use a modem, just a single cabel.I think the problem is just in my knowledge which numbers where to wirte and which one to tick.May you please write what I should wirte ( IP, MAC or smyh)and shouldnt write mannualy and where. What to open and even the smalest step.
What does it mean if you boot from a live CD, the CD spins, a screen appears with the keyboard and human icons at the bottom, then a blank screen appears with a blinking cursor in the upper left corner - and that's it? It just stays that way.
I've tried two different discs, one 10.04 and one 10.10; and two different disc drives.
After succesfully installing Ubuntu 10.4 x32 and rebooting pc hangs on black screen with a flashing white dot in the top left corner of my screen, i've tried installing it twice with the same results.
my setup is: Asus p5q-e, 4 gig of corsair dual ram, ati 4850 graphics, onboard audio. ahci mode win 7 installed on intel ssd, and xp on a samsung 320 gb sata 2, i had this configuration running fine for 2 months without boot loaders, on pc start up i choose from which hdd to boot from.
i installed ubuntu on the samsung drive where it was recognised fine, wiped it all and installed automatically.
pls let me know if there is anything i missed, and advice if possible in what to do.
I have been running Ubuntu desktop on my Acer Aspire One AOA150-1635 for over a year now in one form or another. I originally dual booted XP and Ubuntu Netbook Remix but decided against the remix when I did a clean install (over a year ago). All the issues I had then were the same issues others were having and have been fixed for a long time. I just recently upgraded to 10.10. I am unsure if this problem was present prior to the upgrade and I just hadn't run across it yet. I am also getting ready to upgrade my desktop and am afraid I will have the same issues.
It seems that certain windows don't fit on this desktop. For instance when I open Compiz config settings manager the bottom of the window is below the screen. When I try to click an option the window jumps and the same thing happens to the top. I can also click anywhere on the window to make this happen. I have included a couple pictures (taken with my camera please forgive the quality) to show you exactly what it is doing. It is getting rather annoying when I try to open one thing and the other right above or below it opens instead. I have to place my pointer in the spot where the item I am selecting will be after it jumps in order to open what I mean to open. When I right click it gives me options as if I was right clicking on the desktop background. The other issue which seems to be related is not being able to get to certain parts of longer windows such as Gnome color chooser. It seems to run off screen as well.
I have been burning a few CDs. When I inserted the blank CD I was queried what to set the default action as, and I selected 'Do Nothing'. The CDRom drive now does not attempt to read or mount anything inserted into it. It shows up in Nautilus under 'Computer', but does not appear to be mounted properly otherwise.
I installed Fedora 11 on my computer with the live cd. If I run the live cd, the network connection is active. But, after the installation the cannt connect with the wired network. I must use an internal Server to connect the www. The server controlls my mac address and if it correct, the server allow the connection. ipconfig and the network manager can read the correct mac address. Why it does not work
I installed 11.2 Gnome 32 bit version and I notice that when I insert a USB stick (8G) that it either will not open, or it takes several minutes; on another distro, the same stick is instantly recognised, and a window opens immediately; I went back and booted up the liveCD; I notice now the liveCD does this too; (I now see a window has opened from the USB stick after about 3mins); is there some way I can investigate; or describe this behaviour of the system ?
I'm stuck after a clean install of FC14 on an old Everex StepNote (Doing this for a friend). I tried Ubuntu on it first (because it's so easy) but had horrible stability issues and terminal commands wouldn't respond - however Ubuntu detected and ran the eth0 port just fine. FC14 detects my ethernet NIC, but it won't work.
Here are my details. lspci outputs this for my NIC: 00:12:0 Ethernet controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT6102 [Rhine-II] (rev 7c)
Here is what I have tried so far - with no luck: - I have toggled the networking switch on the laptop and had no luck. - Downloaded Via's VT6102 drivers for Fedora Core, but they don't support kernel 2.6.35.* - Run ifconfig to manually assign an IP address - which it DID take and did route add default gw as well. - Did a ifconfig eth0 down and up as well.
After all that, I still have a "disconnected" wired connection (and yes, I did check the cable - it works just fine in my personal machine.
Kwallet is off. Then I install a wireless device under WPA. Wired icon starts to change to wireless icon, but does not and goes back to wired icon. Hovering pointer over wired icon shows wired device installed as well as wireless device. How do I keep the wireless icon in place after installing WPA to wireless device?
I am trying to find a way to put an icon in the system tray and run a bash command every time I click on the icon.
Purpose: I want to set up a system tray icon that will hide/unhide the desktop when clicked, much as would the standard desktop panel plugin for the various panel apps like lxpanel, gnome panel, etc.
Why don't I just use a panel app?
I am using a very reduced install of Ubuntu Lucid oriented towards first time PC users on very old hardware, using Openbox as the window manager and Tint2 with lxlauncher instead of a panel, the latter both compiled from latest source for some slight customization. Tint2 is a taskbar that also features a built in clock applet and system tray which I have chosen after examining basically all other alternatives and chosen for its light footprint and customization. It gives me everything I need except a single click hide/show-desktop feature or a halt/reboot/logout menu. lxlauncher is a very lightweight alternative to the Ubuntu Netbook Remix netbook-launcher (and/or netbook-launcher-efl) package that conforms to the freedesk specifications and occupies all free deskspace other than tint2, under all other windows. I used the freedesk specs to set up a "shutdown" menu category and created shutdown.desktop reboot.desktop and logout.desktop files in the category to add that feature, using dbus commands for the first two and 'openbox --exit' for the latter.
I set the openbox config to open all app windows maximized with no decoration, so each app takes up the whole screen other than tint2 and can only be closed by right clicking on its icon in tint2 or by its file->Quit menu.
This gives me a kind of OLPC for grown ups with no computer experience. In other words, for people who don't know what a desktop or window is. This is similar to the Ubuntu Netbook Remix except that in UNR they superimpose the window decorations over the gnome panel so you can still close the window.
However, the one problem here is that to see lxlauncher when one has several apps running, one has to click on each app in tint2 to minimize it. I would like to add a system tray icon to make this possible with one click without adding too much more overhead to the existing setup.
Here is a screen cap of the desktop:
BTW, I will use wmctrl to test the desktop visibility state and toggle it using this bash command: test 'wmctrl -m | grep ON' && wmctrl -k on || wmctrl -k off
how to get an icon in the system tray and run the above command when clicked will be appreciated
P.S. I've looked at 'zenity --notification --listen' but running a command when the icon is clicked in this case is a pending feature for the app and not yet implemented. My last resort will be to learn C and try that.
I have a standard F15 installation with Gnome 3 from the live CD. I got bored and decided to play with a few other WMs and DEs. I installed KDE-base, but KDE does not appear as an option at login. Is there something else I need to install? XFCE, Openbox, and Classic Gnome with Compiz all appear in the menu. KDE does not.
I am trying to use a F14 network install CD to upgrade on an old HP Pavilion 9695C (Athalon 850MHz, nVidia NV5 RIVA TNT2/TNT2 Pro AGP) with F12 on it. This same disk successfully upgraded a HP Omnibook 6000 with F12. I boot with the network install CD and get the initial menu to select to install/upgrade, install using basic video driver, etc. After selecting either upgrade or basic video driver install, I see the CD being read, then nothing, just a blank screen. I had a similar problem with F12 network install on this machine. So I tried adding "vga=0x318 nomodeset" to the upgrade boot options. The only difference is a quick flash on the screen, then a blinking "underscore character" cursor. The "install using basic video driver" has the same result.
Have also tried:linux nofb vga=791 [nomodeset] vga=1 [nomodeset] xdriver=nv nomodeset xdriver=vesa nomodeset
However, I always end up with a blank screen or blank screen with blinking underscore cursor. I know this particular AGP has problems with the nouveau driver. On F12 I had to force it to use the nv driver. I submitted a bug but there was no interest on it as this was F12 and F13 was the latest at the time. I did try to upgrade to F13, but ran into this same problem. I was hoping F14 would be better.
I have Windows XP, Vista and Ubuntu (10.04) all installed on my single hard drive. I re-installed XP and then ran the Vista CD to repair the Vista bootloader so that I could boot into XP and Vista. I can't figure out how to boot into Ubuntu now. I tried using EasyBCD (I believe an older version, maybe 1.72) to add Ubuntu to the Vista bootloader but I didn't have any luck. Ubuntu is in the menu, but when I select it, it goes to a screen that has GRUB in the upper left corner and does not load Ubuntu.
If it helps, before I re-installed XP and re-installed the Vista bootloader I was using GRUB for XP, Vista and Ubuntu because Ubuntu was the last thing to get installed.Boot Info Script 0.55 dated February 15th, 2010 ============================= Boot InfoSummary:===============================> Windows is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdasda1: _________________________________________________________________________File system: ntfsBoot sector type: Windows Vista/7B
i thought i would give ubuntu 10.04 a try. So i downloaded the iso twice from two differant sources and burned to 2 diff dvd with diff burners and get the same problem. When i boot off of the disk i get the menu but whether i choose install are run live cd it just sits there for a sec are 2 then goes to black screen with flashing white bar in upper left hand corner and thats all it does. even tried my 9.10 disc which i know works. but it does the exact same. I have purchased a new video card since i last ran ubuntu and its the nvidia gtx 260 core 216. would that be whats causing my problems?
I have re-installed Fedora 3 times, each time, after a little while of use, when I am botting it up, it loads up, and before the login screen appears, the screen just goes black, and I end up with just a black screen and a white line in the top left corner flashing, thus resulting in me not being able to log in. The exact same has happened a number of time
Could it be something I had installed? Also, whilst using it, on the third install, a few times a message appeared telling me there was a kernel error, could this be linked to the problem? I was running Fedora in GNOME, but I had KDE installed too.
I might get harassed for making this windows/linux comparison, but i'm seriously wondering why i cant find any application that can display a quick little notification on the bottom right hand corner of my screen whenever there's some intrusion attempt.
For example, sometimes I can see that in my /etc/logs/secure (or something like that) there's someone who's trying to attempt to connect to me using random usernames/passwords from different servers. The only time I know this has happened is when i actually open the file with gedit. Is there anything like (norton for windows) that can display little notifications (with or without eye candy)??
I have installed Mint8. I was using VPN connection before to be able to use skype (it's blocked in the Middle East...) but can't get it to work in Linux I've installed the network manager, added and configured the VPN connection but when I click on it to connect it doesn;t do anything. No window popping up, no error message... anyone has got an idea what else I should do in order making it work? or how else can I use skype without logging into private networks?
another "problem" we have got 2users on Linux and the other one cannot see the wifi icon in the bottom right corner on his desktop. after nm applet (or some command like that ) i got back that its been taken by another user. so can only one user see this icon on his desktop??
