I have ubuntu netbook remix on my netbook and how Do I wondering how to get the built mic working. I am wondering how to get the built mic workin. My camera works perfectly but not the mic. When I make vids on ....., there is no sound!
I have Lubuntu 10.10 on and old old IBM Think T22 with an Asus wl-107g WLAN PCMCIA card installed.. When i first installed the distribution it didn't work. Then i rebooted a couple of times and then it worked no bother, but now it doesn't work again..
The error is basically that it doesn't seem to recognize it anymore.. it doesn't recognise any network hardware other that the built in ethernet card (which for some reason got the name eth2, suggesting that there is an eth0 and eth1 but ifconfig doesn't show them)
It partially works but I got a couple of issues (using 10.04 x86-64). I use it with a Stereo headphones and a mic.
1) It only outputs in 7.1/5.1 mode and only on the left headphone. If I reselect 7.1/5.1 while an audio stream is playing then I get stereo back. I've checked with Ubuntu 10.10 live CD and apparently the left channel is mapped to front, while the right is mapped to sub-woofer. How can I fix this?
2) The mic doesn't work. When I select the Xonar D1, I can choose between Analog Input, Analog Line In and Analog Microphone. When I switch between those I can hear a click coming from my pc, as if something HW is switching. I tried playing around with alsamixer but it doesn't work. Any idea how to make the mic work?
I bought an used Asus eee pc 701sd. It came loaded with Linux; but I am not familiar with the version (unsure what version it is). I would like to uninstall it and install Ubuntu. But I can't locate a C: drive directory or an uninstall file.
I'm having trouble with the webcam on my laptop. This is a full-sized laptop, not one of the Eee models.I'm not entirely sure what the model or chipset of the webcam is, as there doesn't seem to be much documentation available (as far as I know, this is Asus' first foray into the laptop market in the US).
I previously had the camera working just fine in Windows Vista, so I know the hardware is just fine. I have tried several programs to get the device working, and some (Cheese, for example) are able to get the green light next to the camera to turn on. I've tried running a number of programs as both the normal user and as root, but I don't seem to be able to get the camera to output video. I didn't see any drivers on the Asus site. Is anyone able to lend a hand with this? I'm moving out of the country in a month, and would really love to be able to keep in touch with my family and friends over skype or something similar.
EDIT: In programs like Cheese, the webcam seems to be detected as "USB2.0 UVC PC Camera (/dev/video0)". I imagine it's a good sign that video0 is available.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and try to get my wifi to work in master mode. The dongle is a Asus 167g v3 and I'm using the rtl8192SU driver. I can connect to a network or put the dongle in Ad-hoc mode without a problem. It's when I try to put in master mode some problem occurs. When I do:
Code: sudo iwconfig wlan1 essid test mode master This is the output I'm getting: Code: wlan1 unassociated Nickname:"rtl_wifi" Mode:Master Access Point: Not-Associated Sensitivity:0/0
The dongle is in master mode but it fails to assign a SSID. I also tried to set it up in /etc/network/interfaces but the result is always the same... No SSID
I have installed it in multiple machines (servers, desktops, laptops)I have even installed 10.04 beta in several laptops for educational purposes without a single crash. But 10.04 crashes in laptop ASUS X50GL with processor Intel Core 2 Duo T5800.In fresh installation, it hangs always, in ANY 10.04 version, beta or stable, 32 or 64 bit, also from iso image in CD or in usb stick,I have tried all possibilities!Therefore, clever enough, I though let's do it in an indirect way: let's install the 8.04 distro (it works) and later on I will upgrade to 10.04. So I just did.Everything was fine (also the upgrade, without a single warning) until final reboot after upgrade to 10.04.hanged at boot!. There is incompatibility between 10.04 and this firmware, clearly. Unfortunately, 10.04 is not yet stable, I guess.I took a picture of the screen which I attach.
I could not get get the LG External CD R/W Drive that I recently purchased to work with my ASUS Eee Netbook (Linux based) and ended up giving the drive to a friend to use with his Windows XP based laptop.How do I make an External CD R/W Drive work with this Linux-based machine?I am an engineer (civil-structural), but not that savvy with respect to computers; particularly issues of compatibility of hardware / software.
Centos 5.2 Asus Eee box with Atom N270 and it came installed with "eLinux" which doesn't even come close to meeting my needs (low demand intranet server). But eLinux did work as far as I tested it.
First, CentOS seems to detect the Intel 945GME video chip but I end up with a blank screen. I used text mode to install CentOS. Then I searched for a solution. Found someone suggested also using the i915 driver with 945GM. That didn't work.
So, I reverted to a VESA driver. That worked except I couldn't get resolution greater than 800x600 even after I added a Mode line for 1024x768 to the xorg.conf file. However, the X interface wasn't that important. I mostly wanted into the utilities so I could fix the network.
I had tried a fixed address (192.168.1.11) since the box is supposed to be a "thin server." No luck. So, I tried DNS and tried activating again. The suggestion was that the network cable wasn't connected. When using DNS, the network hub lights flash. Something is happening.
Rebooted the computer using Puppy Linux (on a usb key). Video comes up in VESA mode. I can set it to 1024x768. It found the DNS server without any complaints. (Note: I didn't so much as touch the ethernet cable during the reboot).
Copying and Pasting isn't easy with a computer that won't connect to the LAN. But the hardware is a Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 2). I since tried Slackware 12.1 and it's pretty happy on that box. Vesa mode gets me 1024x768 and the ethernet works (however it thinks it's on eth1 which may or may not be a clue). I'll try CentOS on an old box for other testing.
This is really not a Linux or SuSE question. However, the folks on this forum are polite and knowledgeable, so I will give it a try.In the process putting together a new computer.About 99% confident in the following:otherboard: ASUS Crosshair IV FormulaCPU: AMD Phemon II X4 955Graphics card: Gigabyte GV-R685D5RAM: Unknown. ASUS, as well as several other motherboard suppliers, have not approved of any 1x4GB DDR3 RAMS. Has anyone had success with getting a 1x4GB DDR3 RAM to work on the ASUS Crosshair IV motherboard?
There are currently two options for nVidia drivers in Lucid Lynx, 173, and current. With the video card in my laptop, 9650m GT, the 173 drivers work but Docky is painfully, unusably slow. With the "current" drivers, Docky is fine but I get progressively worse and worse static-type lines across my screen and eventually it the machine restarts itself. I've tried installing drivers manually but they won't compile against the kernel.
Before installing Lucid, I had 9.04 Jaunty installed, and Docky (at the time still merged with gnome-do) worked without a hitch. I ran into this error first when I installed 9.10 and decided to go back to 9.04, hoping that it would be fixed. I can't remember which version of the nVidia drivers I was using in Jaunty, but is there any way to go back to those drivers in Lucid?
I just installed Maverick on an Asus Seashell 1215T netbook with an AMD/ATI chipset. The sound output is working fine (with the exception that I have to manually set output to either speakers or headphones rather than just plugging in headphones), but neither the internal microphone nor external microphones plugged in through the mic jack work. I do have the sound device set to the internal sound (rather than HDMI) and the volume level set appropriately. Apparently neither microphone is being recognized. Any ideas on what could be wrong?Here is the relevant section from lspci -v:

i ordered an AsuS Eee PC 1215T netbook off of Newegg:[URL].. i was confused and surprised to discover it didn't have an operating system, only the Express Gate Cloud. it was advertised as running on windows 7, but it's not installed. i called the ASUS tech support not once, but TWICE and they didn't know diddly squat. would anyone be able to walk me through how to install linux on it? the express cloud is a very basis system. there isn't a "my computer" function so i don't know how i would go about installing anything on it. from what i understand this little netbook has great potential, i just don't know how to harness it.
i have an asus 1201n, with nvidia proprietary driver, ubuntu 10.10.i have tried to install plymouth-manager, tried to change the theme.i have tried to change screen resolution.nothing works.i really want to change the default theme to the space-sunrise.
I have just purchased an Asus EeePC 1001HA netbook and I would like to install Ubuntu Netbook Edition 9.10 (love the look and the brilliant interface), but I can't get the wireless network to work. I am currently running from a 4Gb USB stick that has the LiveCD on it with a 1Gb persistence. The network notification area only shows wired and VPN connections. I have tried installing the Ralink 3090 driver but I have had no luck in getting the wireless to work.
The situation: computer based on Asus P6T motherboard. Two RAIDS:
- 'boot', on motherboard built-in RAID controller (CentOS 5.5 installed on this RAID) - 'data' on 3dware RAID card
At one moment a CPU fan fails and the system halts. After the fan is replaced, BIOS informs it's reset and all the inner controller data are forgotten. After I switch it to 'RAID' mode, it remembers it was a mirror raid (RAID 1) installed, but the file system on it is completely trashed.
The 'data' RAID run by external controller isn't affected by the system failure. Three questions:
- is it worth trying to install OS on the rebuilt 'boot' RAID once again? Looks like if BIOS settings are lost for some reason, there's chance of completely losing RAID data - has someone encountered similar problem with built-in RAID nd was it possible to recover data? - will the software RAID be worth creating instead of using hardware RAID to replace the 'boot' drive?
You have .exe files to install stuff. Even tho I have used ndiswrapper in the past I can't remember how now. I've got a nice old laptop with a nice install of SUSE 10 that does everything I want except connect to the internet. I've got about 1 more day of patience remaining before I have to revert to the hated Ws. I even got a supposed "plug and play" Asus usb-n10, but have not been able to work out the install.
So my work recently implemented some sort of VPN scheme to access programs through citrix. Basically, I log onto the network with a password. I go to the web page with the citrix apps. When I click on an app, it appears that a VPN tunnel is supposed to be created. For mac users, they have a VPN program that downloads initially, and presumably has the set up info in there. My problem is several fold:
1. I know very little about VPN. I assume that I need to set up openVPN on my machine, but have zero idea about how to do that.
2. IT of course doesn't support linux.
3. I'm not sure what information I need from IT to get my VPN connection working correctly.
FWIW, when I click on the app, i get a browser pop up saying "sorry, this function is not supported by your browser". On the window frame is "188.8.131.52=>127.79.63.33".
I have downloaded the ISO onto a DVD-RW and when i pop it into my Acer laptop it works and shows that there are 34 files but when i put it into my gateway laptop it doesn't read it and nothing is showing up on the CD?
I've been a Java developer for some time now and I always wind up removing a bunch of stuff from /etc/alternatives in favor of one of several freshly downloaded official Sun JDKs I've installed myself. I don't like circumventing things unnecessarily, though and I also don't like "re-inventing the wheel", either. If I had a better idea of how that system worked, perhaps it would not be required. I mean I usually write a script to switch between jdk's for different projects but perhaps I would not need a script if I knew how this worked
I just recently updated to kernel 184.108.40.206-83, and after the usual hassle of updating my ATI driver, it worked perfectly. Or so I thought ..
When i pushed the sleep button on my laptop to suspend the system, it turned out that it doesn't do so very well any more - it sounds like it turns off the harddrive, and then the screen just goes blank except for a blinking, but unresponsive cursor. Also, pressing numlock/capslock doesn't switch those little lights on/off.
The only thing I can then do is to hold the power button for a while to shut down.
Is anyone else experiencing this, or does anyone have a solution?
I've downloaded Vidalia, but instead of No Configuration, I chose One-Time Restart, and now whenever I try to open TOR, it says that it is already running. I've rebooted already, but that didn't help at all. I would like to start using TOR as an experiment and to remain anonymous. Sure, there's HideMyAss! add-on for Google Chrome, but I just want to try it all out. Can someone help me?
This is what it says
"Vidalia detected that the Tor software exited unexpectedly. Please check the message log for recent warning or error messages." code...
I've created a custom Lucid installation using debootstrap, it works nice but have some problems, one of them is plymouth: it does not show the splash screen, when booting, I can only see a black screen, suddenly a green one and again black, when it is about to boot, some text messages appear and then the system starts. I'm only using X, no window manager, so I edited /etc/init/plymouth.conf and changed the start instruction from:
But it remains the same, Plymouth does not show the splash screen.
I am trying to make multiseat work on my system. (By which I mean I have two keyboards, mice, and monitors, that will act like two separate workstations.Hardware-wise I have a GeForce 210, which has multiple monitor outputs. Keyboards are one PS/2, one USB, mice are both USB. My distro is Kubuntu 10.04.I have dual screens with a single user working fine, but nothing I've tried for multiseat has worked.https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MultiseatX - first seat works fine, nothing on second seat
Xephyr, as discussed here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=620003 - I can't make KDE start in the Xephyr window, it gives dbus errors, and in any case I'm not sure how to get the keyboards and mice set correctly
I have dell xps 14 laptop sometimes sound gets choppy it get started breaking in middle of playing music then i need to restart the system to make it work. how to solve this without restarting? i m using ubuntu 10.10
I've made a Debian installer CD using a netinst image some time ago and tried to install it my self, but I couldn't get the X system to work, and I wasn't sure If i made the correct actions at partitioning the drives etc
My primary OS is Vista, but I want to dual boot with Debian. I have two large drives, C: and D:. D: now is not visible from Vista as Debian is installed in it and it's the drive that I want to install debian in it. I was using grub to select OS, but when I decided to ask for your help, I wanted to format the D: drive. While trying to find a way to format it (it wasn't accessible by windows), I deleted the partition so grub was giving a 22 error and I couldn't boot my system. Finally, I've fixed that and now I want help to format D: (if necessary) and then install Debian with a Graphical User Interface in D:, but keep Vista in C: also. I have the Debian Installer CD, but I don't want to proceed alone, as I don't understand everything at the partitioning state, and I don't want to do something wrong and mess C: (or the entire machine).
Sometimes, in fact quite frequently, when I boot up my system, PulseAudio does not work. ('Connection Refused'). If I log out of my normal account, log in as root, log out of root, and log back in to my normal account, this seems to reset Pulse Audio and it works again. Seems like a security glitch, but I can't be sure.
I finally understand why I couldn't get Clonezilla to work on my system. But, I am more baffled than ever.
You see, my system has been in great working order for months. I am running 9.10 32-bit and I keep everything maintained on a daily basis. I just updated to kernel 2.6.32-19 and, like I say, everything is working pretty much perfectly. But, yesterday, I volunteered to help with some official Canonical Ubuntu testing. This morning, I got an email from them that they want me to do the work and giving me instructions on how to proceed. The first thing to do is free up some disk space in order to have a special partition on which to install their testing kernels.
So, I downloaded their suggested tool for doing this, gparted. And, when I ran gparted, the first thing I discovered is that my disk drive has absolutely nothing on it! No partitions, at all. It only sees an empty device, /dev/sda. This is exactly what Clonezilla told me a couple of months ago - no partitions could be located to be backed up.
I have a Dell Inspiron 700m. I've been running Ubuntu since 2008. Every time I re-install the O.S. I have to alter the video driver. When 10.04 was released it crashed the system and I couldn't figure out how to fix it so I left Karmic on and all was well. Well the DVD/CD drive never worked right under Karmic but no big deal.
Anyway, last week I attempted an upgrade. Everything went fine until upgrade finished and it was time to reboot.
Reboot hung, so I ended up killing the power and doing a cold boot. Now when booting from the hard drive, I get a brief flash of the Ubuntu welcome screen (in the wrong resolution) and then things die. I'm left looking at a grey curser in the upper left.
Worse yet, I can't boot from a live CD or USB. Neither, Ubuntu, openSUSE or Puppy Linux will boot from CD or from USB.
I double checked my boot order in the BIOS and still nothing boots. I reset the BIOS to factory Default, still nothing boots. I disabled the hard-drive in the boot up order in the bios and still nothing boots.
I can't figure out what happened and I can't access the machine at all exepet to enter the BIOS.
Ok, let me explained what I did. I was curious and decided to try out Gnome 3. Big mistake. I did a purge to get rid of it and now Unity comes back up. So far so good. Now none of my settings save... my "keep in launcher" apps do not stay there, my settings (accounts work fine) in Empathy don't stay and the weather settings reset. How do I get things to save when logging out or rebooting?
