Networking :: Ethernet Auto-connect / Auto-sense Doesn't Work

Feb 3, 2011

I have noticed that a common issue to several distros is the fact that the networking subsystem doesn't automatically detect the link if an ethernet connection is disconnected and then re-connected to the NIC after boot. If the ethernet cable is connected after the system is up and running, nothing happens - ethtool eth0 shows link detected: no, and you have to restart the network service to let the NIC know that there is in fact a link, and actually connect. I have a Fedora14 (KDE) box with a brand new Asus motherboard with embedded NIC. Everything works great except the auto-detect of a freshly connected ethernet connection if the link is down to begin with.

Am I missing a ethernet link sentinel utility or something, or is this just the way linux works? I have done plenty of research on plenty of posts, and it seems this is a common problem, with no solution other than manually or programatically restarting the network service in a script to detect the link after a disconnect.

General :: Auto Login Will Not Work After Upgrade - Sabayon 5.2

May 4, 2010

I'm in the process of trying Sabayon 5.2. After the initial install, I had 800 packages to install to upgrade - went very smooth - but on re-booting, the auto login was gone. No problem, I reset using 'run command' 'kdm' and the 'convenience' screen. Checked all the correct places, and re-booted - no auto login, and I can't get it to 'stick'?

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 And KDE 4.4.4 - Additional Dark Color Theme Does Not Work Properly

Jul 20, 2010

After an upgrade to OpenSuse 11.3 KDE has gone to worse. I am beginning to believe that dark themes are impossible to use on the new KDE 4.4.4. The only theme that works properly is Air, but I find it to much white. Aya or Elegance theme have problems showing the buttons on plasma elements, so has any other theme but Air. Trying to switch to an additional dark color theme (Obsidian Coast) does not work properly either.

The buttons on plasma elements are invisible (the button panel that appears when the mouse is over an plasma element). Sometimes different elements are distorted, i.e. icons, text input boxes etc. I wonder how it is possible that the developers at KDE can make it worse. This worked perfectly on OpenSuse 11.2 and its KDE version.

Software :: Screen App / Retain BG / Color Background Color Gets Lost

Jul 6, 2009

I am using the screen app, and have set bce to on, and issued the following commands to set my background and foreground color: tput setab 4; clear; tput setaf 7; clear;

This temporarily sets everything properly on my screen. However, when I issue any commands that change or set their own background color (for example, when I issue an "ls" command with colorized output), the background color gets lost for any new output and I have to reissue the commands listed above in order to retrieve my background color.Ideally I'd like to keep my background color when issuing these commands, as it serves as a good way to remind me of what environment I am currently issuing commands in.

Ubuntu :: Auto Update Does Not Work?

Jun 1, 2010

I am using lucid 64bit ubuntu and it seems my auto update function does not work. Since install (on day of release, a clean fresh install) I did not have 1 update, when I check updates manually there are updates.

If I look in /var/lib/apt/periodic there are 2 files on root and 0kb in size:
totaal 8,0K
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4,0K 2010-05-01 11:26 .
drwxr-xr-x 6 root root 4,0K 2010-06-01 13:40 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 2010-06-01 11:55 update-stamp
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 2010-06-01 13:41 update-success-stamp

Is this normal? Is there a fix to get auto update to work?

Ubuntu :: Auto-login Doesnt Work ?

Apr 28, 2011

I am running xubuntu 11.04 (ISO from early this week). During install, I selected to NOT auto login but to present this gdm panel where I have to enter the password (or other users could log in).

Now I decided to enable auto-login (and to start the screensaver right afterwards) ... so I opened up the "login screen settings" (systems menu), unlocked that window and changed it to "login as xxx".

Then i rebooted and would have expected to be greeted with my screen saver on a logged-in session afterwards. But what happens is that there is a gdm panel sitting ... showing me


Where the first item wont do anything.

So I have to select other and enter user name + password ?

Is that how it is supposed to work?

It happened on the other laptop too, so I need every time to "rcnetwork restart" to get it back working

Ubuntu :: GDM Auto Login Doesn't Work After Logging Out?

Mar 4, 2010

I'm trying to configure an autologin account for a kiosk. I can create the user, no problem. I can set the user to automatically log in, no problem. I can set a delay in the automatic login so that someone is given a chance to log in using their own account, no problem. But if the autologin user logs out, then gdm does not automatically log it back in. This is where I'm stumbling. It seems that for such kiosk uses like this such behaviour would be a bug and not a feature.

Ubuntu :: Auto Mount Not Working - How To Make It Work

Jan 26, 2011

I've installed Lubuntu on a Packard Bell EasyNote W3344 D. lsusb displays the usb pen, however it's not automounted. All three options under pcmanfm --> Preferences -- Volume Managment is ticked. I've tried two different usb pens, both formatted fat32 and confirmed working on ordinary Ubuntu. I should add that I previously installed Mint Fluxbox, but eventually reinstalled (choosing Lubuntu) because I wasn't able to enable auto mount of usb pen. Both /mnt and /media remains empty after insertion of the usb pen. Auto mount of optical drive is working properly.

Fedora Networking :: WiFi Auto Connect Doesn't Work (NetworkManager Applet)

Mar 3, 2010

The auto connect feature of NetworkManager Applet (version 0.7.997) isn't working on my system. If the WiFi connection dies, Network Manager doesn't detect that the connection has been lost and try to reestablish the connection. I have to manually click on the WiFi hotspot to reestablish the connection. This appears to be the case both while the computer is running and when I first boot it up (i.e. when booting, if the first attempt at establishing a WiFi connection doesn't succeed, Network Manager doesn't retry or try another hotspot).Is this "normal" behavior for Network Manager? If not, does anyone know a fix? Here's some more info about my system:

Computer: Dell Inspiron 1318 laptop
WiFi Chip: Broadcomm BCM4238

Ubuntu Networking :: Auto Eht0 Doesn't Work - Can't Connect With Ethernet Cable?

Nov 13, 2010

I've recently bought a recycled computer for my office. The plan was to get an old cheap computer and use it to write LaTex documents but nothing else. However, I can't seem to get the thing to connect to the internet. I'm on a University network which has a funny setup but I don't think that's the problem.So here's the deal. I have tried this with 9.04, 10.04 and 10.10 and it hasn't worked. The computer recognizes the ethernet cable. If I issue the command "sudo mii-tool eth0" and get back "eth0: negotiated 100baseTx-FD, link ok". However, click on the networking logo on the top right, and click auto eth0, it tries to connect for about 30 seconds, then gives up. Unfortunately I'm pretty clueless when it comes to networking so I have no idea what to do to try to fix this.

Ubuntu :: HP Color Printer Not Printing Black As Black, Uses Tri-color Instead?

Feb 2, 2010

I have an HP color laser printer and I am looking for a way to print black as black instead of using tri-color. For example If I print a document that has colored text then any black text is printed using the color cartridges rather then using black. I have been surviving by using windows XP in virtualbox but I'm hoping someone can help me with this. I've looked all over then net for a solution but I've found nothing. I remember having similar problems like this with older Macs because of postscript printing and I'm thinking this is the same problem but I don't know how to fix it. I've searched the forums as well but no joy.

General :: Color Schemes Do Not Look Right In CLI Vim

Jun 16, 2010

I was having a bit of trouble reading the dark red strings of Vim's default color scheme, so I decided to switch to a different one. [URL]. However, when I set my color schemes to these, not only do they not come out correctly (for example, comments are bright blue), but these 2 somehow come out looking exactly the same! Am I doing something wrong, or are these colors restricted in the terminal so default colors are being chosen?

General :: 32 Bit Color And Flash Crashes?

Jan 16, 2010

I've recently set up ubuntu 9.1 via virtualbox and am having some issues getting things startedFirst issue is when I boot up the virtual machine a warning box pops up saying virtualbox is optimized for 32 bit color and the OS is running 16 bit color. Some google searches revealed that for linux 24 bit color is what I want, but most suggested I edit the xorg.conf file to 24 bit depth. Problem is when I try to open that file it's blank. Further reading seemed to indicate that the most recent versions of ubuntu no longer use the xorg.conf file, so how would I go about switching from 16 bit to 24 bit color? Not a major issue but still annoying.

General :: Color Coding Within Directories

May 13, 2011

Yes it's me again, about to ask a foolish question.I've ran man on this commands, but they don't make any reference to their color, nor is it mentioned in the Bible. As I go through such as /sbin what does the color of the commands mean, like arch is green, awk is blue, and then there is those that have a red background such as cgexec?Then I go into /etc and then there's yum.repos.d there is no man for it, so I typed it in and got "command not found", so then I went in SU mode and "vi yum.repos.d and I get "yum.repos.d" is a directory,No such file or directory. So just what is yum.repos.d, I thought this is where I add more repositories.
