Ubuntu :: HIPOINT Does Not Detect Wireless Devices Auto

Jul 18, 2010

I am running UBUNTU 10.04 on an X86 system 64bit. I am trying install a wireless keyboard and am not having much luck.

-My non wirelessUSB keyboard and mouse work fine.
-My wireless logictech mouse works fine without adding any special drivers/packages
-Wireless Keyboard (LX500, uses same receiver as mouse) does not work with standard config
-Adding HIDPOINT and selecting my wireless mouse and keyboard (LX500) - wireless key board does not work. Mouse still works.Since my wireless mouse worked before HIPOINT installation (64 bit), I believe HIDPOINT is not working.

HIPOINT Does not detect my wireless devices auto, must manually select them. So I believe that there is some conflict with other drivers.Can anyone point be in a direction to look? What are the typical configuation files and drivers used to configure standard USB mouse and keyboards? What are some other software that might be installed that is conflicting with HIDPOINT?

Debian Multimedia :: XOrg Auto-detect Failing To Detect Max Screen Resolution

May 29, 2011

I've installed Squeeze 2.6.32-5-amd64 on my laptop (Alienware M17X R3, Intel i7 Sandybridge, ATI Technologies Inc Broadway [ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6800 Series])The screen is 17", with maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080. After a default install of the operating system, the maximum resolution I can select is 1280 x 1024.My research so far has suggested that I need to edit the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file and provide xorg with the necessary resolution.

Again, by default, the xorg.conf file is not created. This leads me to believe that xorg is scanning my hardware at startup and providing me with whatever it thinks is appropriate. I tried following these instructions to generate an xorg.conf file. This process created an xorg.conf file under /root/.

When I copy this xorg.conf file to /etc/X11, I get a blank (i.e. black) screen. Deleting this file restores the default resolution 1280 x 1024.This system is dual booting with Windows 7. Under windows I am able to get a 1920 x 1080 resolution, so I know my hardware is up to it.At this stage I have yet to install the drivers for the Radeon graphics card.What are my options regarding configuring xorg to give me a higher screen resolution?

Ubuntu :: How To Detect USB Devices With LiveCD 8.04

Jan 9, 2011

I'm trying to detect an external HDD drive, but I don't know how. My PC has a total of 6 USB ports, they're all being used, and the Computer File Browser lists only 4 USB ports and I can't open them.The ports could be detected in Windows Vista, except I've not tried the new HDD enclosure, but it crashed.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3 - How To Detect New USB Devices

Sep 22, 2010

Strange to me that a search only seemed to turn up some partial instructions for enabling detection of new USB devices (not discoverable in a default install) in 11.1 and no later. I assume perhaps incorrectly that things have changed since so attempted the following.

Objective: Discover an HTC G1 phone to use as a modem. So, after the phone is discoverable by SuSE the next step would be to configure the connection.

Current: It seems that this phone is listed in /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/

Attempt: I assumed incorrectly it seems that it should have been sufficient to simply create a file in the /etc/usb_modeswitch.d/ directory with the appropriate TargetVendor and TargetProduct codes as follows

Filename: 0bbr:0c01

# HTC Android G1 Phone
DefaultVendor= 0x0bb4


I need the proper way to do this in OpenSuSE 11.3. A bonus would be if someone could verify that after the modem/phone is recognized whether the next step is to configure the device using YAST/modem.

To find the appropriate firmware without knowing the make or brand of your wireless chip, you can use the command:


But apparently debian package do not offer this useful tool, well, certainly for sidux exclusively.

Is there a package of fw-detect eventually?

Fedora Installation :: F11 Detect One Of The SATA Devices?

Jun 11, 2009

I've been struggling a bit with install F11. F10 installs without issue. I have two internal SATA drives, a PATA DVD-ROM and a USB drive. The BIOS recognizes everything. However, when I got to the disk partition utility, Anaconda could never detect one of the SATA devices. I tried swapping cables, ports, etc. No luck. Today, I ran across this Bug thread: [URL] I checked the screens Ctrl-Alt-F1-6. Nothing obvious. But, for fun (from the bug thread) I went to the prompt on 2 and ran:

dmraid -r -E It found an "nvidia" RAID "thingy". Forgive my ignorance on what it really is called or what it does. Anyway, I answered yes to erase the "thingy" and voila. I was able to install F11. Not sure if I made a good title, but I've seen bits and pieces of people having similar problems with F11. And BTW, the drive that had "nvidia" on it was from a machine that was using nvidia hardware RAID 0 - but F10 had no problems with it.

Ubuntu :: Get Devices To Auto-mount On Connection?

Jun 2, 2010

I have many flash drives, memory sticks, card reader, and 2 mybook 1tb so i am constanly plugging in, or unplugging devices from my machine running the latest version of ubuntu (i beleive 10.04?). I remember when i use to connect a device it would mount and work right off the bat. but now, everytime i connect anything, i have to go through Disk Utility to select the drive and mount it (also unmount before disconnect). Another problem is that some times disk utility doesnt like to work (as with a few other programs). This happends every now and then and im not sure if its my systems hardware or this version of ubuntu. every now and then programs like to stop responding (turn grey) and some programs like disk utility will open up, but just be blank and not show the detected devices

Ubuntu :: USB Devices Auto-mount As Read-only?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 - Prevent Auto Mouting Of Disk Devices?

May 17, 2010

In 8.04 it was easy to adjust, but with 10.04 I've tried to set the policies for udisks with no luck. I want Ubuntu to always ask for my password when a new device/disk is added to the system. If I don't give my password it should not mount the device. What happens now is that all disks added is mounted without any question leading me to believe that the policies is ignored (by a bug) or that I've missed something. I've been through obvious setting in the graphical shell and disabled them. But if they'd been enabled the policies should have kicked in. I do think it worked in version 9.10 when I tested it earlier this year or late last year, but I was waiting for the next LTS. How may I set up Ubuntu 10.04 to make it work as intended?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Detect USB Devices On Minimal Install / No Window Manager - Sort It?

I'm trying to create a media box for my TV. I've installed a barebones ubuntu from minimal install disc. After that I installed xorg and XBMC. But my usb devices are not automounting. Is there a pacakage im missing? I've read that XBMC should be able to handle mounting of devices and that no window manager or desktop environment is needed to handle this.

I followed these two tutorials and my current install is 10.04 Lucid.

Current version of XBMC is 10.0

Ubuntu :: Auto Detect Hard Drive Errors?

Jan 22, 2010

Someone explain this to me. I often thought in the back of my head, how do I check if my drive is bad in Linux? I always excused it thinking well I guess besides gaming that's another reason to keep a windows partition around. I boot up yesterday and Gnome was acting weird. Then, it happened. "We have detected bad sectors in your hard drive." I thought, no, you're stupid, this hard drive is less than a year old (however it was a replacement for another one that died). So I reboot.

Boot back up - Different error message. But instead of getting it a few minutes after log in, I got it right away. "We have detected potential hard drive failure." Okay, Linux. Want to play this game? Booted to Vista, downloaded Seatools to test my Seagate drive. It failed... Swapped SATA cables... it failed... So I ask - how does Linux have this auto detect capability like that? As much as I love Ubuntu, I was like there's no way it could just magically tell like that without running the Seagate program. But alas, Ubuntu was dead on target.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Unable To (auto)mount Devices Through USB

Feb 19, 2010

Previously, everytime I insert a USB drive it automatically mounts. But now I am getting this error:

"Unable to mount 8.0 GB Media DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."

Also, previously my CD/DVD works properly. But now everytime I insert a disk, this is what I get:

"Unable to mount TOSHIBA

DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken."

By the way, I am using openSUSE 11.1.

Slackware :: Auto-mounting USB Devices Stopped Working?

When I installed slackare 13 it detected usb drives and cameras automaticallyow it doesn't. I am runnning a 13.0 system, not current, so I have only applied the updates in that branch (iirc including a new kernel).nowadays when i plug a device in it does not seem to be detected by HAL (i.e not in KDE).However the device is listed if you use the command "lsusb" and the computer obviously knows it has been plugged in as there is a relevant entry in dmesg.Sorry for the generallised nature of the post, but I don't really know anything about HAL or how it can have stopped working

Networking :: DHCP Server Auto-detect

Apr 1, 2010

I have a scenario where a Debian (in this case) device will be connected to an existing LAN.What I then want said box to do, is to query the LAN to see if there is an existing DHCP server present. If there isn't one - then simply use the Debian box as the DHCP server (which works fine atm).If there is an existing one - I need the Debian box to be able to turn off it's own internal one and get it's details from the existing server (ie. change from server to client).

These action will need to be sat in the background as well - just in case another DHCP server appears on the LAN after this box does. Don't shoot me for saying it - but I know Windoze server does this. Is there a 'script/util' that anyone knows of (I am trying to do this auto-magically)?

OpenSUSE Install :: Way To Turn The Terminal Auto-detect Off?

Jun 14, 2011

SuSE 11.4 is a wonderful release, but two chronic problems remain. The most serious is the inability to get Gnome to recognize an intel driver parameter specification in xorg.conf or 50-screen.conf with a predetermined, working screen specification. With the latest update that includes: [url]

Gnome will boot up in a strange resolution with a display of a pink screen and fragments of icons split and duplicated over the display. Teasing open the terminal parameter screen, terminal parameters (resolution, horizontal rate) appear to be correct. The terminal type is 'undefined', whether the screen is operating correctly or not, and any attempt to set defaults are refused. Perhaps the intel driver has not been selected by the operating system. Is there a way to specify a default screen driver?

This has been a chronic problem, now aggravated with the latest update to the point where the computer is now rendered inoperative.

Ironically, the other problem, that of the difficulty in downloading certain update files also remains. Had an elaborate update workaround procedure not been followed, the system would still be usable.

General :: Auto Detect Text File Encoding ?

Jun 24, 2011

There are many plain text files which were encoded in variant charsets.

I want to convert them all to UTF-8, but before running iconv, I need to know its original encoding. Most browsers have an Auto Detect option in encodings, however, I can't check those text files one by one because there are too many.

Only having known the original encoding, I then can convert the texts by iconv -f DETECTED_CHARSET -t utf-8.

Is there any utility to detect the encoding of plain text files? It DOES NOT have to be 100% perfect, I don't mind if there're 100 files misconverted in 1,000,000 files.

General :: Fedora Ethernet File Locations For Auto Eth - X - Devices Missing Ifcfg-ethX Files

Jul 24, 2010

Missing ifcfg-eth[2-5] fileset for ZNYX 345Q Quad Port 10/100 cards. I have showing in the gui network device that my ports for my ZNYX ZX345Q Quad Port card my ports are Auto eth2, Auto eth3 etc. My Motherboard and Intel cards show as System eth0 and System eth1.

There ARE corresponding entries for those in my /etc/sysconfig/network-settings/ directory, but there are not ifcfg-eth[2-5] files to correspond to these adapters. Can I just write my own files and that will do it?

How does Fedora 12/13 load these drivers into the kernel without having these ifcfg files?

I'd love to know if there is another way Fedora controls NICs / other system resources.
