Ubuntu :: Kernel Update Broke Bluetooth - Icon Faded
Jun 4, 2010
Latest kernel update on 10.04 desktop broke my bluetooth. The icon in the tray has now faded and pushing 'turn bluetooth on' does absolutely nothing. I'm on a Lenovo S10-2 laptop, everything was working perfectly before today's update.
I just did install the updates as they showed up with the Update manager, and now the themes are "broken." On startup, all windows are themed with the Redmond theme. When I open the Appearance dialog, some windows' theme come back. But nautilus still uses the Redmond theme (I'm not running it as root either). The icon theme is totally not taking effect. It's using the ugly gray icons regardless of what I have chosen. This all happened right after the latest update on Karmic, and after I've reinstalled my NVidia driver which breaks after every kernel update. I think it was a kernel update because the number of lines at the grub menu seemed to have increased.
Using Ubuntu 11 and have just managed to get wireless working. It used to be a wired connection but when I moved needed to go wireless. Now for some reason the send/receive icon is faded and I can send or receive messages.
i upgraded my kernel to the latest version that being linux-image-2.6.31-19 and now when i start my linux box i get the grub shell. this problem happend once before but i only had to run the command: sudo update-grub2 and everything turned back normal. now even though i run the command everytime i restart my linux i get the grub shell.
Firstly my gdesklets have gone, and if I try to run gdesklets then I get a blank window in the top left corner, followed by another blank window in the centre which disappears, then the first one fades to gray.
Secondly, clicking the 'running man' to exit just closes both gnome panels.
Ubuntu 8.04 (2.6.24-25)I know 8.04 is pretty old now, and I should probably start over, but it was all fine until this latest update.
Posting from my Windows 7 system. Once again an Ubuntu kernel update has broken X. Once again I cannot get into Grub2, despite putting in the hacks to lengthen the time it listens. I don't need instructions on how to fix it from Live CD. I'm going to try Gentoo or something, anything, different. I need a Linux distro that can survive regular updates and boot to desktop reliably.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04 and ran the normal weekly updates last night. There were kernal updates listed but they have run alright before so I went ahead and let everything update.
On restart my Nvidia drivers would not load, so I restarted in low graphics mode. I uninstalled the Nvidia driver (with the intent of reinstalling them) but decided to restart before I reinstalled the driver (windows habit). upon restart I was told (in a very small box) that Ubuntu was running in low graphics mode.
I clicked ok and it proceeded to load, but it loaded it in regular mode and only the right half of the desktop is visible! It is like it is cut totally in half! And I can't get to the important side with Admin and Preferences. I tried boot options but that just gets me a very small colored box. There are no options when it boots just 3/4 of a box that says it is running in low graphics mode because "unable to load module "fglrx" module does not exist". I can not try and reinstall the Nvidia drivers because I can't see the part of the desktop that has Admin on it. I have used Ubuntu for several years now but have not used the terminal very often.
I just updated my kernel from 2.6.32-21 to 2.6.32-22 today. Now I am getting no sound. I have checked my mixer levels with both kmix and alsamixer. Nothing appears to be amiss. I tried rebooting with the old kernel and still no sound.
I managed to get my Linksys AE1000 USB wireless adapter to work on Unbuntu 10.04 LTS.but recently I updated the kernel to 2.6.32-26 and when i rebooted I logged on to see my wireless connection was not working.even worse, I can't fn the links i had that showed me how to install it in the first place, its about the fact that the new kernel uses a different usb setup(probably incorrect, let me know it its incorrect). its an issue that the hacked driver isnt compatible with the new kernel release, how can i revert to the older version that it did work on? i'm using a RALinkTech driver [URL]
I installed the latest security update for squeeze. It entailed an update of the kernel. Now when it boots, it give continuous kernel error messages about "can't enumerate usb .... " I have a custom kernel compiled from source (not sure about the patch level) from the same kernel 2.6.32. It seems to work OK. Should I worry about the security of this custom kernel or should I try to recompile it? I don't really know how to do any patching of the kernel source.
Ive had a few freeze ups on this system but the last time it affected the top panel.The wireless icon has disappeared to be replaced by an extra bluetooth icon.screenshot attached.Is there any kind of clean up utility (like tune up utilities in win)Also, any kind of log so I can trace this freeze up Iḿ getting.Ive only just got this laptop so dont know if it did it before although prev owner never mentioned it.
I just performed the newest kernel update to version 22.214.171.124-0.7 (desktop). Unfortunately, there is no update for the compat-wireless package available. It's still the version for kernel 126.96.36.199-0.5. Hence, my wireless is currently not working and I had to pull a cable through my apartment to write these lines. I actually thought due to the change of the very last digit in the kernel version that this should be a rather safe update. But I also had to recompile the modules of the NVidia driver and of Virtualbox. Does anyone has an idea when new compat-wireless modules will be available? Or do I have to re-compile them myself (I never had to do that before and I really hope that I don't have to)? Or is there a trick to make the old modules work?
I logged into my notebook today and found that my wireless was disabled and I couldn't enable it again, also found that my bluetooth icon was gone, when I tried looking at the setting for it it told me that it coulnd't find the bluetooth hardware. Don't know what's up with this everything was working fine yesterday, I logged today and I can't use wireless and bluetoth.
I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook. Even though the bluetooth light is on on the machine itself, the bluetooth icon at the top of the screen has been greyed out. Now, after trying to fix the problem, the icon has disappeared altogether.Before the icon disappeared, while the icon was greyed out, I was unable to enable it. If I clicked on the greyed-out icon, it told me bluetooth was on but disabled.Now I need to know how to get the icon back and to enable bluetooth.
I am having the problem enabling Bluetooth on my Dell studio 1555. When I start System->Preference-Bluetooth Manager, I get message Connection to Bluez failed : Bluez daemon is not running, blueman-manager cannot continue.

I have reinstalled, removed rebooted and installed bluez, bluez-utils, Blueman, bluetooth number of times now. Two attachments are included, BlueZ output screen Bluetooth output screen Bluetooth works perfect, when I boot lucid using live CD, So I guess there is some problem with the installation. I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.4. It never worked with 9.10 and its continuing the same way.
After a restart, I see bluetooth icon, but its grey all the time. Two more screen shots.. Bluetooth output screen (Turn on) Bluetooth output screen (Turned on) sudo /etc/init.d/bluetooth status * bluetooth is running
I'm running Ultimate Edition 2.4 on an Acer Aspire 3500 lappy, yesterday I allowed my system to upgrade the kernel (from 9.10 kernel 2.6.31-17 to 2.6.31-18 generic) as per usual but when it rebooted I had no WiFi. The network manager didn't even have a wireless section, only wired, and I couldn't setup a wireless network either. If I reboot into the earlier 2.6.31-17 kernel everything is OK. Another problem is that even tho I have no screensaver enabled and no power saving options enabled, (ie screen never disabled) after a short time of no use the screen goes blank. If within a few minutes I touch the pad or hit a key the screen returns but if it's been an hour or so nothing I do will wake it up,even tho there is still disk activity etc, and the only way to recover is with a hard reset, hold power key to reboot.
I am having an issue with phpMyAdmin on my Xubuntu machine. I installed a few updates today and now my phpMyAdmin web interface site is not loading on the server. This is a local server running in my office. It appears that the page tries to load, but no output is delivered to the screen.
Taking a closer look at my updates, it looks like the following changes were made (along with some upgrades to Firefox):
When I use the 'Force Version....' command, I am given only two options the '4.8' version that I have now (the broken one) and a flat '4' version with no .7. Also, the force version didn't seem to do anything. I tried to Force a version and then mark a package for reinstall. When I did this Synaptic informed me that it was simply going to reinstall the 4.8 version.
What I would like to do is to revert to the 5.3.2-1ubuntu4.7 version of all of these files and then lock the version using Synaptic, to prevent this issue from recurring.
I am not afraid of heading to the command line either.
I just updated to emacs23 from emacs22 (sudo apt-get install emacs2). I find that I now have a problem with org mode structured lists not appearing. A single asteriks on a line by itself no longer appears highlighted and no longer collapses and expands using the tab key.
I did the latest update last might, 3-24-11, and I woke up,to find my system completly broken. There is some weird new startup and nothing starts, absolutly nothing. I'm typing from my phone now. I'll try some troubleshooting soon but I may just reinstall.
I have noticed on a couple of the newer installs I have done, that the Skydome image is faded. It appears to have about 35% lower contrast than it should. I always use the same one, I have compared it to the local file, I am a professional photographer, so I can say it has nothing to do with the image itself, but rather it is some hidden setting somewhere, as I have tried cranking up the image's native contrast, and nothing changes.This happened before, and in the course of normal compiz tweaking, it went away, but I would like to figure out where that is, as CCSM has so many settings, and it may not even be a compiz setting, but rather a system setting. I just do not know.
The update manager told me there were several packages to update, and I as usually said 'OK'. Then, it told me that some packages could not be installed. I ran dpkg in a terminal window, and this is what it looks like:
> sudo dpkg --configure -a Setting up openjdk-6-jre-headless (6b18-1.8-4ubuntu3) ... update-alternatives: error: alternative link /usr/bin/java is already managed by java~. dpkg: error processing openjdk-6-jre-headless (--configure): subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2 dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of openjdk-6-jre: openjdk-6-jre depends on openjdk-6-jre-headless (>= 6b18-1.8-4ubuntu3); however: Package openjdk-6-jre-headless is not configured yet. dpkg: error processing openjdk-6-jre (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of icedtea-6-jre-cacao: icedtea-6-jre-cacao depends on openjdk-6-jre-headless (= 6b18-1.8-4ubuntu3); however: Package openjdk-6-jre-headless is not configured yet. dpkg: error processing icedtea-6-jre-cacao (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of icedtea6-plugin: icedtea6-plugin depends on openjdk-6-jre (= 6b18-1.8-4ubuntu3); however: Package openjdk-6-jre is not configured yet. dpkg: error processing icedtea6-plugin (--configure): dependency problems - leaving unconfigured Errors were encountered while processing: openjdk-6-jre-headless openjdk-6-jre icedtea-6-jre-cacao icedtea6-plugin
At some point in the last week, my webcam on 10.10 64bit mysteriously stopped working. The OS no longer recognises it as being there. It's an internal cam on a Clevo laptop and before this it's always worked perfectly.
Is there a way I can force the OS to recognise it? Or find out what broke it and fix it?
Writing this from a 9.10 LiveCD, so I know that my hardware is working fine.My system is running 10.10 normally. Last night, the update manager popped up, as it frequently does, and said I had some packages that could be updated. So I let it update after which it said I needed to reboot. So I did, and now it doesn't recognize my network connection, and even the blinky lights on the port itself stay dark. don't know a lot about networking or stuff under the hood, but I can work a console and/or text editor if someone can tell me where to look and what to type.My hardware is (from "lspci | grep -i eth"):02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 03)The packages that have a modified date of last night are:
After a recient update to the freenx libraries KDE on Kubuntu 10.04 stopped working but other desktops like gnome kept running. The problem wasn't in the normal log files, but it was found in the .xsession-errors file in the user directory on the server. After the update NX is trying to start kde with the /usr/bin/startkde4 command which doesn't exist. Instead make a link from /usr/bin/startkde to the non existent /usr/bin/startkde4 and it will work again. To do this use the command:
