Debian Configuration :: Squeeze XFCE Wicd And Wpa Encryption?

Jun 7, 2011

The laptop runs Debian Squeeze XFCE installed from the Live iso (uname -a gives 2.6.32-5-686 as the kernel) and has Wicd 1.7.0 for network management and uses the ipw2100 wifi firmware/drivers. It connects fine using WEP encryption at home and to unencrypted connections found in a couple of public areas. I have had one problem with a WEP encrypted connection in a cafe (got through encryption, but could not get an IP address. There are workarounds which I will try next time I have coffee there When changing my router to use WPA2, I get 'bad password' errors. There is quite a literature on 'bad password errors' and Wicd and kernel 2.6.32, however a lot of the pages are contradictory. The Wicd log showed this...

2011/06/07 17:25:59 :: WPA_CLI RESULT IS ASSOCIATING
2011/06/07 17:26:00 :: wpa_supplicant authentication may have failed.
2011/06/07 17:26:00 :: connect result is Failed

[code]...

I'm fine using WEP at home, but I need to connect out and about as well and meet WPA2 connections in some locations

Debian Installation :: Squeeze XFCE Set Resolution?

Sep 2, 2011

I have installed debian squeeze with XFCE following this tutorial:It worked well, but I have one problem: the resolution is not right. How could I change it?The only resolutions that are available right now are 1280x1024, 1024x768, 800x600, 640x780. I have a 19" wide screen, so the resolution should be 1440x900. I couldn't find xorg.conf since it seems new xorg doesn't need it anymore.

Slackware :: Enabling Encryption Using Wicd?

Sep 26, 2010

I have been using wicd successfully for some time, lately with slackware 12. However, when traveling I sometimes find a place that gives an error message "encryption must be enabled".Probably this means that wpa-supplicant must be set up right, but I do not know how to do that.I have wicd starting at startup, then I type wicd on the command line until a prompt does not return, go to a different window, type wicd-client, then start kde and use its link to start wicd. So frequently this works fine; I get a connection to something I have a user name and password for, or am in a coffee shop where no such are required. But sometimes I get the above message. This happened to me in a coffee shop in Helsinki where I was given a user name and password, but still got the above message and could not proceed.

Debian Multimedia :: No Wallpaper / Desktop Icons - Xfce/XDM On Squeeze?

Apr 10, 2010

I have been an Ubuntu user for the past two years and have recently made the switch to Debian, so while not new to GNU/Linux or Debian-like distributions I am still learning on many fronts. Installing squeeze directly caused issues with my Wi-Fi for some reason, so I installed lenny and performed aptitude safe-upgrade (full-upgrade kept breaking the system), and took care of stray packages manually to get a working squeeze system. My desktop environment of choice is Xfce, using XDM.

Ever since the upgrade, both the login prompt and the actual desktop have had a black background with no icons or right-click menu. I am guessing that the issue is a daemon that should be running but isn't, although I have no idea where to begin troubleshooting the issue, which is why I came here. I've uploaded at of my desktop here Right-clicking in the black space doesn't do anything, and changing my wallpaper settings is ineffective.It's not a huge problem for me, as everything else in the system appears to work, but I would like to figure out what the problem is, fix it, and maybe learn something about Debian in the process.

Debian Configuration :: Wicd: Custom Template Does NOT Load

Aug 13, 2011

My university has a secure wireless network that has the following specs: WPA2, 1st Authentication TTLS, 2nd Authentication PAP, Encryption CCMP or AES, Thawte_Premium_Server_CA certificate and username and password.

I have never gotten this to work with wicd. First of all, wicd does not have a default template for this configuration. This led me in the past to quickly install Network-Manager (on top of XFCE...). While this has worked for me just fine. Recently I found out that this functionality is possible in wicd by creating your own template. So I did and here it is!

name = WPA2 Enterprise TTLS
author = Andres Cimmarusti
version = 1

[code]....

I did everything outlined here: [URL] (that is I saved the file as wpa2-ttls and then added this entry to the active file in /etc/wicd/encryption/templates/).

Sadly wicd's gui does not load my template!, the logs show no errors!...it simply refuses to take it. I cannot see any mistake in the above... do you?Is this some debian bug perhaps?This is the most important issue for me, before accepting to use wicd instead of NM.

Debian Configuration :: Home Directory Encryption After Installation?

Aug 20, 2011

I recently bought a new hard disk for my /home tree. I don't have encrypted home directories currently, but I was wondering if there is an easy way to encrypt my home directory so that it is automatically decrypted when I'm logging in (console/kdm). Basically I would like to manually do same thing as Debian installer would have done.

I'm running Squeeze.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze D-u - Kernel Configuration Skipped

Jul 6, 2010

I have a set of vm's with stable, testing, and sid to keep track of how things are going. When I did an apt-get dist-upgrade with squeeze last week, things seemed to OK (350 package updates) until the end. It didn't seem to like and / or was confused by a kernel dependency.

I am not too concerned yet. Because these are in vm's, I do a snapshot before any significant change. I can futz around with impunity because I have that backup.

I re-booted, and tried the apt-get dist-upgrade again with same results. I think I also tried apt-get -f install.

So I reverted to the snapshot, and will simply try again in the future. I recall that with lenny as testing, the font-desktop was really screwed up for about a period of 6 weeks.

However, just in case someone else runs into this:

1) a re-boot worked, but the failure of apt-get made me nervous enough to revert.

2) waiting for corrections has seemed to work in the past (with a single exception with a 4-disk SCSI software RAID10 update that failed to re-boot lenny successfully after what seemed to be a minor update -- that was on a real system, not a vm. I haven't gotten back to look at that.)

Debian Configuration :: TightVNC Configuration On The Squeeze?

Feb 8, 2011

I recently just installed Squeeze on an ia64 system and was having some troubles with running VNC.I get the following error, more specifically for some reason I get a malloc - memory corruption error:

Xtightvnc(9165): unaligned access to 0x60000000001ea06c, ip=0x4000000000268280

Xtightvnc(9165): unaligned access to 0x60000000001ea084, ip=0x4000000000268280

[code]...

After display all the code above, it just stops. The port 5901 is still closed - if it runs properly, would it open automatically?Is there something that is incompatible? Or am I missing some system configuration component?

Debian Configuration :: Accessing Samba Share From Xfce

I just finished setting up a Debian 8 system with Xfce, and now I would like to connect to the share. I already installed gvfs-backends and gvfs-bin. When I go to Thunar file manager, and click browse network, I'm presented with a "Windows Network" shortcut. When clicked it says: Failed to open "Windows Network". Failed to retrieve share list from server: No such file or directory.

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 :: Wheezy Xfce 4.8 VERY SLOW First Thunar Startup

May 16, 2011

I upgraded my main PC's Xfce 4.6 to Xfce 4.8 this morning.Now, every time I start Thunar for the first time after a new boot, it takes about 30 seconds to appear, and then about 10 seconds later, a second instance of it appears.After that, Thunar appears instantly every time I start it during that same session. But if I shut-down or restart my PC, Thunar again takes about 30 seconds to start up, and a second instance of it appears about 10 seconds later.

Google searches seem to indicate that people running other distros are also experiencing this problem. On advice in a different forum, I deleted the ~/.config/Thunar folder and restarted my PC, but that didn't help -- it created a new Thunar folder, but the long delay and the double-Thunars are still there every time I run Thunar for the first time in a session.

Debian Configuration :: Wicd And Wpa_supplicant - "failed To Authentize"

Sep 20, 2010

I'm trying to configure my new school wireless network (eduroam). Though it *should* work in wicd just fine, it doesn't, it fails with an error saying "failed to authentize". However it works with plain wpa_supplicant. Here's the working wpa_supplicant.conf:

[code].....

I don't see any option in the GUI configuration of wicd that is specified in wpa_supplicant.conf and not in the GUI, so it should generate a proper wpa_supplicant.conf.

Are there some more detailed wicd logs? Is there a way to give wicd the wpa_supplicant.conf part for this single essid and let it use the GUI generated one for the others? Where can I see the wpa_supplicant.conf it has generated for a connection?

Debian Configuration :: Using Tor In Squeeze?

Aug 28, 2011

When I activate Tor in Iceweasel, it forbids me access to the internet completely. Even attempting Google results in "Iceweasel is configured to use proxy server that is refusing connection".

I have seen this in Lenny, too - it was caused by activating Tor without having installed privoxy. I installed privoxy and everything was okay. In Squeeze, Tor is using polipo. Polipo is installed and running. I have not played with settings of polipo or Tor, the configuration is the same as it was after installation.

What can be wrong? I am a rather an user than a networking guru. I am connected to internet by means of DHCP, no local lans, no special routings, no additional proxies. I have already tired to reinstall polipo.
