Debian Hardware :: Insufficient Privileges For Mobile Broadband Dongle

Dec 9, 2014

I've just installed Debian 7.6.0 with KDE onto my laptop and now I want to connect to the internet with my Mobile Broadband dongle. When it's plugged in, I follow the icon in the taskbar to the Network Connections window.

Then I try to add a MBB instance with the pop-up assistant. After I've answered all the questions another pop-up tells me:-

"Insufficient privileges"

What's going wrong here and how do I get Debian to work the dongle (which works on my Desktop Debian 7.5.0 that uses Gnome)?

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Disk Errors (Insufficient Space)

Jun 21, 2011

I'm currently running ubuntu 10.10 64bit. My problem started occurring a couple days ago. When I check my disk space using either disk usage analyzer or Gparted it says I have about 69 gigs left. But say I am in a folder on the bottom of the window it will tell me I only have 48 gigs. And just to test I tried going over the amount specified in the folder window and it tells me I have insufficient space.

Ubuntu :: Keyboard And Touchpad Settings - Options Insufficient

Jun 1, 2010

I've installed Netbook Remix on a partition on my Advent 4211 (MSI Wind clone) XP netbook. It is the first time I have ever used Linux, apart from abortive efforts to install various distros on an old laptop a few years ago (wifi wouldn't work).

(1) I am a touch-typist and would like to set the Shift key to RELEASE the CapsLock, as on old manual and electric typewriters, which is how my other Windows keyboards are set to operate, but the nearest option (out of so many ) in Ubuntu seems to be "Pause CapsLock", which is no good.

(2) I need to DISABLE the touchpad - the nearest option seems to be "Disable while typing" - inadequate for me, trailing thumbs are causing havoc I like this OS (it seems especially neat with the latest Chrome) but those two "shortcomings" are constant nuisances.

Ubuntu Installation :: Multiple Admin Passwords - Opration Requires Root - Administrative - Privileges

Jan 10, 2011

I downloaded a driver for my printer today and I opened it in the terminal. Then a window popped up saying "This opporation requires root (administrative) privileges. Please enter the administrative password below:" I typed in the same password that I use when authorizing the installation of programs from the Ubuntu Software Center and I tried it multiple times. Each time, it rejects the password. I even tried downloading something else from the software center, just to make sure the password was correct, but the system had no problem with the password when downloading from the software center. So, is my software center password different from my administrator password?

Networking :: See The Number Of Packets Dropped By Kernel Due To Insufficient Queue Size?

Sep 15, 2010

As is known, there is a queue lies between the kernel subsystem and the network driver for incoming data. And if data come when this queue has no space for it, the data got dropped by kernel. Is there some way to see how many packets are dropped due to this buff penury? I tried netstat -s but could not find something useful. On the other hand, I found this 12176 packets collapsed in receive queue due to low socket buffer from netstat -s. I think this is something related to the per-socket buffer, but not the incoming queue between the network driver and kernel. Is this right?

Debian :: Qemu - Windows 7 From Partition - Error ""Ramdisk Device Creation Failed Due To Insufficient Memory"

Sep 8, 2011

I'd like to learn it. So I installed lenny & grub2, after that win7, reconfigured grub2, upgraded to squeeze. All is fine, but I cant start working in Debian as I can work only in Windows. So I decided to use qemu to emulate win7 booting. I have sda1, sda2 for squeeze; sda3 and sda4 for win7. If I try "qemu /dev/sda3" I get disk read error. If I try "qemu /dev/sda" I have grub 2 boot screen and when continue booting win7 I get "Ramdisk device creation failed due to insufficient memory" (as screen on [UR:]). I tried to use m -1024 parameter and got screen with "Windows load files" and reboot to grub2 screen/

Ubuntu :: Specify User Privileges

Jun 12, 2010

I have a small problem on ubuntu 10.04, of which i know it can be solved. However, i'm not sure how to. The problem is; I need one user to be able to install updates, but not give it any other privileges. I have been messing around with the "sudoers" file in /etc a bit, and thought i needed to use the "NOPASSWD" But i'm not sure what to do after that.

Ubuntu :: What Privileges Does Initial User Have?

May 16, 2010

I accidentally promoted my initial account to admin and now I want to revert it but I don't remember the specific initial user privileges.So there are 2 questions:

1) First, is it safe to "downgrade" the account, logging in with another one? In general what's the best way to do it?

2) Could someone enter Administration->Users and Groups->[select initial account]->
Advanced Settings->User Privileges and list the privileges that are on by default?

I repeat I want the privileges of the initial account, which I suspect are above those of basic users (that are added later) and below admin...
