Debian Configuration :: Network Manager Is Quirky In KDE Debian

Feb 14, 2011

I have a new install of Debian Squeeze from debian-6.0.0-amd64-kde-CD-1.iso but I'm experiencing problems with the wireless internet applet in the taskbar.When the computer boots, it doesn't connect automatically eventhough I have it set as such. I have to fiddle with it until I get the request from KDE Wallet Manager to insert the password to complete the connection. I didn't have this behavior in Kubuntu.

Nov 28, 2015

It seems that my network manager may be running in root mode...

For instance in network connections, edit and delete are greyed out. if i click add, i am unable to enter any details. if i run nm-connection-editor as root i am able to make changes.

How can i set it that the normal user can make changes? [managed is set to true in the conf file]

Debian Configuration :: Cannot Connect To Certain WLAN With Network-manager

Jul 23, 2015

Since a recent update on Stretch, I have been unable to use the network-manager to connect to my home wireless network on my laptop. It was working fine before. I did not change any settings on the WLAN router. I can still connect to other wireless networks at work and university, just not this particular one at home. All other non-Debian devices in my household are still able to connect just fine.While figuring this out, I have tried connecting manualy with ifup but I don't really know how that works. Right now there is only the loopback entry in /etc/network/interfaces.

Below is the output of syslog, when gnomes network-manager is trying to connect, but fails.
Code: Select allJul 19 20:01:57 debian NetworkManager[6705]: <info>  (wlan0): Activation: starting connection 'Affenbande'

Debian Configuration :: Network Manager Is Missing Some Icons

Dec 7, 2015

I just upgraded my Debian stretch via apt-get and I noticed that the network manager is missing at least 2 icons: the mobile broadband icon and the settings icon. I haven't found any bug reports or other information about how to restore them. The icons were there after initial installation of version 8.2.0 from DVD.

KDE Plasma version 5.4.2
Qt Version 5.5.1
Kernel Version 4.2.0-1-amd64

Debian Configuration :: User Login And Run Network-manager?

Feb 16, 2016

After fossicking around I can not find anything around that I can invoke in a terminal to configure settings in network-manager. The applet(?) on the task bar doesn't ask for a login, so options are grey/grayed out. The "program" in the applications menu is similarly grey/grayed out.

If it was a once off, then I suspect that it would be simple as login as root to start X, but I have a series of config files to edited each time of their initial use. also, there is the ongoing problem of vpn target switching.

woops; wheezy with xfce4 and everything is uptodate.

Debian Configuration :: Network Manager Crashing When Connecting To VPN

May 2, 2011

After today's squeeze update the nm-applet (it updated it to version 0.8.4-1) crashes when trying to connect to my vpn (pptp). I'm pretty new when it comes to this so I'm not sure what to do. I tried looking at the log file (applications--> system tools-->log file viewer) but I don't know what to make of it.

Heres the log file before it crashes:

Debian Configuration :: Network Manager Says No Internet Is Connected

May 16, 2011

I just installed, and evolution doesn't seem to think it has internet. The icon with the power cord in the bottom left is unplugged, and send/receive is greyed out. Internet is working , but it is not using network manager, since network manager says no internet is connected. Maybe this has something to do with it?

Debian Configuration :: Network-manager & Auto Scanning While Connected

May 6, 2010

I'm trying to use network-manager in sid and it's incredibly frustrating because every 2 minutes or so it seems to scan for wireless access points, during which time my SSH connections completely hang and screw up. Pings start dropping packets as well. By doing an "iwlist scan" I can reproduce the behavior. Has anyone else dealt with this? I haven't been using network-manager, but I am currently due to mobility and needed VPN functionality... WICD with no network-manager works better but there's no gui-based VPN support. I've got an Atheros wireless device and I've read that supposedly it should be doing background scanning since kernel 2.6.32, but I haven't seen anything like that, and I'm on 2.6.32-5-amd64 currently, 2.6.32-3-amd64 behaves the same too.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze Update To Network-manager Breaks Functionality

Feb 7, 2010

I have just updated my Squeeze system. The update included a newer version of network-manager (and it can not be more than a few hours old). After the update all network functionality on my machine (via knetwork-manager) is broken. The GUI applet has no effect.

Hence can anyone help me: a) Downgrade network-manager by one version; b) Find out what is causing knetworkmanager to break; c) See if the problem is with knetworkmanager or network-manager.

Debian Configuration :: Wireless Stops Connecting After Update To Network Manager

Mar 30, 2011

I am currently using Debian Testing, managing my wireless connection with NetworkManager and the Gnome nm-applet. Both have just been updated: network-manager from 0.8.1-6+squeeze1 to 0.8.2-6 and network-manager-gnome from 0.8.1-2 to 0.8.2-4.On installation of the new packages, I have no problems. However, on a reboot, I can no-longer connect to any wireless connection. I am not prompted on start-up for the password to unlock the Gnome keyring and when I left-click on the nm-applet icon and then click on a network to connect to it, nothing happens.I do not think this is a driver or NetworkManager daemon problem. If I run "nmcli dev wifi" or left-click on the applet icon, NetworkManager seems to scan for wireless networks properly and returns a list including the one I wish to connect to.

Debian :: WICD Network Manager Does Not Detect Any Network / Resolve This?

Jan 16, 2011

I have installed WICD on Debian . I can now access a new a Network Manager screen, which did not exist before, but it does not display/detect any wireless networks. It is like dead. Before installing WICD I did at least have a wireless WPE encrypted network, which was detected, although it often disconnected for no known reasons. Now even that Network has gone and I can't go on line. Can anybody help here? How can I configure the WICDNetwork Manager to detect an existing network or create a new one? In the latter case, would I have to reconfigure the Router settings to setup/connect to a network in Debian? May be I have to do this, because Tor/Vidalia changes my IP address and so my Network Adapter ( Linksys) can no longer connect to the router.
Also, when trying to follow troubleshooting leads in this connection, the Terminal screen on Debian ( CMD) would often return a PERMISSIONS DENIED message.

Debian Configuration :: Synaptic Package Manager Repositories ?

I'm rather new to Linux...especially Debian. I've been running Kubuntu for about 1 month now and I wanted to try out Debian as well. So I installed it on a laptop (Downloaded the 6 DVDs). Now, how do I add some repositories to Synaptic so I can update my software? Also, is there a list of repositories? So far, every time I want to install something I need to insert one of the DVDs.

Debian Configuration :: Update Manager/dpkg Stalls

Jun 26, 2011

I have used Debian on this computer for over a year now. A little while back update manager stopped working. It now prompts me to update a varying number of packages (85-97), but when I try and run it I get this message:

E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem.
E: _cache->open() failed, please report.

I'm not sure where to report this. I'm the only user of this computer. I tried running dpkg as directed, but that results in the following:

shop-amd-rebuild:/home/steve# dpkg --configure -a
Setting up linux-image-2.6.26-2-amd64 (2.6.26-26lenny1) ...
Running depmod.
Running mkinitramfs-kpkg.

I'd sure like to update, and not reinstall.

Debian :: Network Manager Can't Share Network Connection?

Nov 13, 2015

In Googling around it appears that the Network Manager used to have a nice simple (obvious, logical, straightforward, intuitive, easy-to-use... ... can you tell I'm a bit surprised that there's not a simple button to do this, it's pretty common functionality ) option in the IPv4 tab called "Shared to other computers" allowing you to share your network connection with any computers connected to yours... kind of like this:

[URL] ....

Professor Google seems to indicate that this may have existed in Debian at one point but, I don't see this option anymore. How do I get it back (or is there another gui way to do this without editing the /etc/network/interfaces file... if there's no other way to do this... that's fine but I'd prefer an easy method of enabling and disabling sharing)?

What I'm trying to do... I have a Beaglebone Black connected via IP over USB. When I'm ssh'ed into the BeagleBone, I want to be able to use aptitude install to grab new packages etc... and that kind of requires access to the outside world. Everything I've found so far seems to to require a modification to the interfaces file but since (according to the interfaces man page) the preferred method is to use the network manager if possible... I'm trying to avoid that.

* It should be noted that I'm running sid with the experimental 4.3 kernel so... maybe in doing so I've shot myself in the foot?

Debian Configuration :: Jessie 8.2 - GUI Update-manager XFCE Notifier

Jan 1, 2016

Since update-manager was removed from Debian Jessie, I am looking for something similar or a way to install update-manager for 8.2. I would like a GUI.

I have tried gnome-packagekit, but some of the commands don't appear to work or it seems incomplete and I don't know of a way to test to make sure that it is working.

Other sites recommended to use smartpm. However, I cannot seem to find the plugin xfce4-smartpm-plugin in [Xfce Goodies] that would work as a notifier.

Unattended-upgrades does not meet my specifications, because to my knowledge there is no GUI configuration for this.

Though Debian Jessie is a great distro, I am finding it difficult to recommend to some newer users because it does lack a GUI updater/notifier at this time.

Debian Configuration :: Gnome-power-manager Prevents Suspend Key From Working

Nov 19, 2010

I decided to upgrade my Asus Eee 900 from Lenny to Squeeze, to fix some issues that I was having. I did a fresh install using the beta1 netinstall cd image, and now my system is mostly working as I'd like it. Overall it seems quite good, and it even boots much faster than it did with Lenny.

I've encountered a problem, though. The suspend key doesn't work. I installed the package 'hibernate', and now the system can suspend via a command (which seems to work properly, although I haven't tested it extensively). I've noticed that the squeeze system doesn't have a command that my other Lenny systems do, 's2ram'. And I've noticed also that a package, uswsusp, which seems to be related to this kind of thing, can't be installed because it's not in the repositories: Package uswsusp is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'uswsusp' has no installation candidate

Debian Configuration :: Gnome Power Manager Display Setting Not Respected?

May 19, 2011

Despite having the Gnome Power Manager set to put the display to seep after 30 minutes, it always happens after 5 minutes. The display will go blank but still lit, and then it powers off after the 30 minutes. Surely, if I set it to 30 minutes, the display should power off then, and not just blank after 5? I have no screensaver packages installed so it's nothing to do with that.

Software :: Debian Network Manager

Jan 10, 2010

I have been trying to get network-manager up and running in order to connect to my work's VPN easily, but it is proving to be a real pain. I am using Debian Lenny.

I then added myself to the group netdev and rebooted but it is still not running. What's more, when installing network-manager, aptitude has also installed resolvconf which screwed up my /etc/resolv.conf. It decided to make a symlink of resolv.conf to '/etc/resolvconf/run/resolv.conf' which doesn't exist and 'run' is itself a symlink to '/lib/init/rw/resolvconf' which doesn't exist! Talk about simplicity. So I just manually created and altered a new resolv.conf.If anyone knows what is going on with network manager then any help would be much appreciated.One last thing: I read that I need to comment out any configuration of eth0 from /etc/network/interfaces in order for network-manager to manage said interface. I previously had eth0 setup with a static IP. I trust network-manager will allow me to do this once it starts behaving?

Debian Configuration :: Network Not Work When Use 2 Network Cards

Oct 24, 2010

I'm planning to use Debian as the OS for a firewall machine, which will sit between my internet connection and the rest of my computers. Now my network is all wired, no wireless whatsoever. I'm using the onboard the motherboards cat5 socket which seems to be using the VIA rhine driver and I'm also using a 3com 100MBps card.

I can list the machine spec if you want but it's nothing special, an old Athlon 64 rig with 1gb ram and an OEM motherboard, it all seems to work ok apart from the internet doesn't' seem to work. Lenny seems to detect both cards ok and I even used the net install CD and it managed to download everything using the 3com card.

The strange thing is when I'm in Lenny, I can't seem to connect. I can ping google, but when I try and view a webpage, the browser just sits there with a while screen... Could it be that using 2 network cards is confusing Debian? Right now I've only got the modem hooked up the the 3com card, and nothing connected to the onboard network card.

Debian :: Root Pass And Network-manager ?

May 19, 2011

I have stop using debian some months but I decide to come back. Yesterday I have make a clean install of debian squeeze. The network manager never rember my wireles password. Every time I open the pc it ask me the keyring password and the wireles password. Why network manager can't rember my passwords? Also I have a strange problem when I try to gain root acces. If I try to open synaptic or to mount a ntfs partion it ask me the root password but every time I type my root pass it says that its incorrect but I am absolutely sure that I type my root pass correct. Also if I try to gain root acces from terminal with su its became the same thing but after some tries it takes my pass as corect. So every time I type my root pass from a gui like gksu it always says that is incorect but if I type my pass in terminal it take it correct after some tries. In the past I have again installed the debian from the same cd on the same pc but I had never those problems. What can be wrong?
