Ubuntu :: Network Works, But Can't Find Server?

My network is working and shows a connection to my wireless connection (connected at 100%), but firefox shows "Problem loading page" when ever I enter a url. So I can't access the internet. Synaptic doesn't work either.When I try to download, I get a warning "Could not doadload all repository indexes - (-5 No address associated with hostname)"This is a dual boot machine and the internet connection on the windows side works just fine. The connection worked fine with ubuntu 9.10. But since I partitioned the drive and did a fresh install of 10.4 I can not access the internet.

OpenSUSE Network :: X11 Forwarding - Windows Client Works But It's Doesn't - Cannot Connect To X Server
I have x11 forwarding enabled in /etc/ssh/sshd_config on a suse 11.2 32 bit box running kde I can open x apps on a windows machine using xming and putty just fine, but when I boot the same machine into suse 11.2 64 bit using kde and try using konsole I get: cannot connect to x server

The command I'm using to log in is: ssh -X -l username host I doubt the problem is with the server I'm logging into or it wouldn't work in windows, not really sure what to look for as I've never had a problem using x11 forwarding from a linux client before only windows ones

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Server - Cannot Find Network Workgroups
I just converted our whole office from many flavors of Windows, and windows server 2000 to Ubuntu Server and Kubuntu for desktops. All went beautifully and the staff is warming up to my move(the first think one noticed was that Open Office can ready both older DOC and newer DOCX Word files, which MS Office can't do). The Ubuntu 10.04 Server was a learning experience because I added a lot of things other than just service Samba files(intranet, internal mail server, MySql, etc). Going on 3 weeks and not one problem with printing, incompatible document formats etc! But getting it all working was fun because things make sense and are visible. Windows is fine when things work but when it doesn't it is very mysterious and unfriendly. All was fine except when I tried to install Kubuntu 10.04 on a spare laptop.

It worked perfectly with the live CD and even a bootable persistent version on a flash drive. But when installing a normal HD install, all went well but I can't find the workgroup on the network. I am a pretty much novice so really do not know where to start looking. I can ping the server and internet and the new intranet work on the wireless and wired connections. Just can't see the network workgroup. Where to start looking? or maybe just reformat and start again. I just tried booting from the CD and the USB Flash drive again and both of those work well, just slow. For those wondering if it is a good move, consider what a support relievf it would be to have all your desk machines on the exact same page in terms of security updates and versions, and so easy to keep current. Besides the UI is really pretty cool.

Ubuntu :: Server Can't Find Eth0 - Connect To Network
I tried for two days to install ubuntu server to my computer from a cd. Whenever I tried burning to a CD-RW (using two programs at highest and lowest speeds), my cd always said it had corrupt files. So I setup a virtualbox harddisk that was setup tonuse my slave harddisk and installed ubuntu server in virtualbox successfully. Now when I boot my server, it won't connect to my network. Long story short, I have taken lo out of my interfaces and tried resetting my dhcp ip address by releasing and renewing it using dhclient. I have realized that eth0 doesn't exist (it shows up in windows). I think that all I need to do is add eth0 to ubuntu...

Ubuntu Networking :: Server Doesn't Find My Other Network Devices
I've got three network devices on a laptop:

1. Built-in ethernet LAN
2. Built-in ethernet WLAN
3. PCMCIA ethernet LAN

I installed Ubuntu Server on this computer without the last one inserted.I inserted the last one today, and it lights up when i put in the cable. To be sure if Ubuntu has found it, I tested with the install CD and could see that it found all three at the first part of the installation where I have to chose a primary device.I can't get my WLAN card working, neither do I get my PCMCIA LAN card working. The third card, this PCMCIA card, has worked on Ubuntu Desktop using another laptop. And as said, the setup finds all three.

OpenSUSE Network :: Firefox Can't Find The Server
I've gotten this in the past with other PCs, but have been able to fix it by deleting my connection in Network Manager and recreating it. I'm using DHCP. This is OpenSUSE 11.3 on a HP Mini-110 Netbook.Here's the weird part, before anyone starts sending me to resolv.conf or asking for "lspci" stuff. When I'm in a terminal on this netbook, I can enter "host" and it works. I can enter, "host" and it works fine. I get an IP address. If I manually enter the IP address in Firefox, I go to the site. But if I enter "" in Firefox, it very quickly responds with, "Firefox can't find the server at""Browse Offline" isn't checked. (Think about it: if it was, I couldn't enter the IP address and go to a site, anyway.) This is a brand new install of OS 11.3, Firefox 3.6.6. But one other interesting thing: the software updater reported that common "curl" error, saying that IT couldn't resolve the addresses, either.

Ubuntu :: Can't Find Anything In The Repositories That Actually Works?
I recently saw a ..... vid where a guy had a very cool dockbar on some linux distro, he didn't say which. It was much like windows 7's dockbar (lower taskbar on the desktop) and it looked really freakin cool. He called it a dockbar, but I can't find anything in the ubuntu repositories that actually works. Do yall know where I can find one?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Find A Simple Video Cutter That Works All The Time
I been struggling with this since Karmic and I know others have as well. This is really the only thing making me keep a Windows install around for my personal stuff.

Problem: Convert .TS files to iPod or really any smaller format keeping A/V sync after edit. I can covert my .TS file perfectly if I do not edit it but I want to just do a simple, quick trim of 2 mins from beginning and end.

HandBrake with convert the file perfectly but cannot trim. Avidemux does a great job on the video but I always have to play with the audio shift to get it in sync. It is usually betwenn -250ms to -1000ms off but I cannot count on it. If I run the video through DGIndex in Wine or view it with Mediainfo both programs detect the an offset problem but they are always wrong by almost 500ms and it is never constant.

Regular video editing I have pretty good luck with my normal DV files and I could even run the .TS files through other programs but it is too time consuming to be useful form this simple task. Anytime I want to take my recorded TV .TS files I cannot edit them quickly without making a full project out of it in Openshot Cinelerra, etc.

Has anyone found a quick, reliable way to do some lite video trimming in Ubuntu and keep A/V sync without having to resort to any Windows programs?

EDIT: Also I really do not want to resort to have to demux separately either. I know I am asking a lot but I got spoiled with a couple of Windows programs that will edit without reencode programs like VideoReDo can do the editing and converting all at once (for $100 !).

Ubuntu Networking :: WiFi Adapter Works With Desktop - New Alternate Install Can't Find It
I have a USB WiFi adapter that my Ubuntu desktop install (10.10) automatically detects, and it works great. I just used the alternate installer to set up an old box as a server, and it doesn't install the driver for the adapter. lsusb finds the adapter, but I don't get a wlan* listed in /dev/. how I can determine what module(s) are used to run this adapter on the desktop so I can load them on the older box? Or is there some package I should install from the CD to help auto-detect the adapter?

Ubuntu :: How Does Network-admin Works?
I try to understand the way the network-admin retrieve and set information about the network connections, and after reviewing thee code, I still dont undertsnad how it does it. I thought that it should use maybe linux commands such as iwconfig or ifconfig or by using ioctl for get/set the parameters of the wireless, but I did not find such things in the code. It also does not use AT commands for modem devices parameters.I see that it uses liboobs files, but after veiwing the code, I still don't understand how it works.

I thank you if you can give me some clue about it.These question comes since I need to make a program which connects to wireless devices (possibly several wifi and modems devices can be connected ), and I try to think how to set/get the network parameters, I thought that a good start will be to look at how network-admin works.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Network Works Fine On XP / Ubuntu / 11.1 But Not For 11.2
On my Acer netbook (AOA-150-1635) the wireless works fine with WinXP, Ubuntu, and used to work with Suse 11.1. I replaced the Suse 11.1 with a clean network install of Suse 11.2. I couldn't get the wireless to work and did another network install using the wireless. When the install was completed I could not get the wireless to work with Suse 11.2. When I run the "" it shows--

!!! CND0120E: Network card wlan0 has no IP address
wlan0 Interface doesn't support scanning : Network is down


I looked up error CD0120E and changed the network devices setup to "traditional". The wireless "scan" picked up the routers and I added the encryption keys. Still no joy. I ran "" again and it said it is better to use the Network Manager.

!!! CND0180I: The system can't ping external IP address
!!! CND0150E: There might be a problem with the default gateway definition on interface eth0


Going back to Yast, Network Devices, I set Network Manager. The result is that it is back to the beginning with "" giving the original error.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Network Lot Slower And That Only Hotspot Works
My school has (once again) chosen to change their wireless network. This means it has gotten a lot slower, and that only our hotspot works. Our hotspot however is secured so that im unable to enter facebook, and a lot of other websites, etc. So what i did in windows was installing a program called hotspot shield, which redirects you ip through a server, so the LAN Admin basically have no control of what you're doing if he haven't got more skill than the one we have. I think what Hotspot shield does is making a vpn connection (correct me if im wrong) and i would certainly like to do that i ubuntu as well.
