I'm configuring an HP Mini 110 (wireless BCM4313) to use it as a small Access Point (ad-hoc mode).
I want to make my configuration reboot friendly. With what I have right now, as soon as I reboot the laptop, the wireless interface configuration isn't correctly setup. I have to do "ifdown eth1; ifup eth1" manually.
Here is what I have in /etc/network/interfaces for the wireless interface code...
So the question is how can I avoid having to bring down and up the interface?
I have a Rocketfish bluetooth keyboard and mouse combo and am running Ubuntu 10.04. The mouse was easy to set up. I just went to the bluetooth icon and clicked add new device and it connected. The same wasn't true for the keyboard. It gives me the code to type so I typed it and pressed enter and... nothing. So I found a little tutorial and I had to install bluez and type in the terminal, "sudo hidd --search" then enter my password (which I needed to grab my other keyboard to do) and it connected. If I don't use it for a while or reboot, the keyboard will not connect. I have to do the hidd search again which means I need to keep my extra keyboard handy. I had it set up before where it would connect on a reboot, but I got a new hard drive and reinstalled Ubuntu, now I can't remember how I set it up. Could I have set up bluez wrong?
This is a new 9.10 installation. Screen resolution by default is 800x600. I've installed the 1.85 nvidia driver, which correctly identifies my monitor as a Samsung 931b (or whatever). Nvidia's gui suggests a 1280x1024, which is just what I want. When I try to save the changes to xorg.conf, I get a variety of errors, including (but not limited to) "...error parsing xorg.conf..". I've chmod 'ed the X11 directory, and the xorg.conf* files in it to 777, I end up with 1280x1024 until a reboot, after which I get 800x600 again (arrgg!).
Judging from the number of people posting here and in other places, this is common. Seems there would be a solution that works. Any suggestions?
Here is the current content of my xorg.conf file:

I installed CentOS 5.5. After install, I decided to put 3 identical disk for raid 5. All the disks are IDE disk. Then I put a sata disk and partitioned it to add another partition to the raid 5 array. Everything works fine until I rebooted my system. After reboot, the sata partition I added into raid 5 is showing removed. I had to readd it using "mdadm --add" to make raid 5 array works.
I am trying to follow the info on Getting IPTables to survive a reboot. Everything works until I reboot but the script does not run when linux starts. The article says to create a script so ifupdown loads these rules on boot:
Code: echo "#!/bin/sh" > /etc/network/if-up.d/iptables echo "iptables-restore < /etc/firewall.conf" >> /etc/network/if-up.d/iptables chmod +x /etc/network/if-up.d/iptables it put what I think is a symlink in if-upd but iptables still does not survive reboot.
i'm using a logitech dinovo keyboard/mouse and was trying to figure out if the device is still in boot mode. I don't see the usb hub listed when i hciconfig and i although the udev rules appear to hid2hci, i cant seem to figure out how in the heck i could be paired when i've never went through the process.. lsusb also shows "boot interface subclass" which im guessing means its in bootmode? Im obviously concerned about this because bootmode isnt encrypted.
After upgrading F14 -> F15 bluetooth (mouse/keyboard) are not working. With F14 there was no problems.

I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS and have it set to dual-boot with windows 7 on my gateway tablet PC. Since installing, sometimes when I suspend or reboot, my wireless does not work. To be more clear - it is working fine, then I either suspend/reboot, then I come back and no wireless networks show up at all. I can still connect with ethernet cable though. I can solve it by rebooting multiple times (usually around 1-5 times) and then it (magically) seems to work again. I have also tried switching from network-manager to wicd, but the problem persists. With both network-manager and wicd, I've tried simulating a reboot for the wireless by using the command 'sudo modprobe -r iwl3945 && sudo modprobe iwl3945' (network-manager) and 'sudo /etc/init.d/wicd restart' (wicd), but these do not seem to work.
I can get connected to the Internet when I reboot the system, but the connection usually fails after within 10 mins. However, even then the network manager says it's connected. Never reconnect, manually or automatically.
I am applying a virtual interface (eth0:0) which is failing after the system reboots. It actually cause the default interface (eth0) to fail as well, I must manually go in and remove the configuration for the eth:0:0 and restart the network to get it running again. How do I successfully add a Virtual interface to Fedora 11 that will stick when rebooted.
I have just updated to karmic and whenever i reboot i have to re-enable (turn on) my bluetooth adapter in order for it to work. This wouldn't be much of a problem except for the fact that i use a bluetooth keyboard / mouse.Does anyone have any solution for this?Is there a way i could enable bluetooth from command line?
When i connect to my laptop a bluetooth usb stick, the bluetooth could not be turned on. the bluetooth dameon is on, and when i press the turn on button, nothing happens. in windows the stick works fine.
The bluetooth manager does not detect a bluetooth dongle .trying to use ndiswrapper to fix.I installed device manager and the results are shown below.i downloaded the windows driver suite. It has 4 .exe self extracting driver archives and a setupconfig.ini. The .ini file is below.I was able to extract one of the 32bit archives on a windows machine and it had about 8 .inf files that are titled weird and would not install properly using ndiswrapper probably because im using the 64-bit architecture. there are 2 64bit .exe's in the driver download, but how can i extract them in ubuntu and do i really need to install all 8 .inf files. also do i actually need to make a .inf file? if so how?

I am trying to use an Apple BT keyboard with a new installation of 10.04.Using Bluetooth Preferences, I discovered the keyboard, and paired with it. No problem with pairing. If I click on the BT icon in the top panel, it indicates that the keyboard is connected. But any text typed on on keyboard does not appear on screen. I opened Keyboard Settings, thinking that I might have to select the connected BT keyboard as the input device. Nothing there. Is there another preference somewhere that has to be set for the BT keyboard to actually work as an input device (as opposed to simply being paired)? My USB keyboard is still connected (and is working). Perhap Ubuntu only tolerates one keyboard device at a time?
I am leaving my bluetooth MAC out. I can't connect to my phone with bluetooth anymore! obex doesn't work and even when it pairs, it just crashes.Using nautilus I get:
Code: Could not display "obex://[xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx]". Error: Connection to the device lost Please select another viewer and try again. Using the Bluetooth gnome applet:
I select "Browse Files On Device", select the phone once paired, and then nothing happens. I know that it is paired because I can push contact info to the computer. Unfortunately photos and such require I browse the device. This had previously worked on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS before I upgraded to 10.04.
I have two machines one Ubuntu Lucid and one Kubuntu Lucid. They share a bluetooth keyboard through a KVM switch. As of last week both were working. At this point my KDE machine disconnects from the keyboard on the first keystroke. The Ubuntu machine is still okay. What I've tried/checked so far without success
I can connect my keyboard through Kbluetooth but it disconnects when I start typing. The timeout time is set to none. I tried rebooting and then reinstalling the software to no avail. I replaced the batteries in the keyboard. Plugging the bluetooth usb adapter directly into the KDE box. Removing and then adding the trust I find this in the syslog:

I've got a Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Keyboard 7000 that worked fine under Ubuntu 9. The GUI discovers my mouse fine, and also appears to connect to the keyboard, but the keyboard does not type when paired through the GUI. When I pair using hidd (either --search or --connect), the keyboard pairs and works fine, however when I cycle power on the keyboard, it will not auto-reconnect, and I get the following error message associated with it (see attached image):
Grant access to '00001124-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb'Device 'Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Keyboard 7000' (00:12:5A:A1:5A:8D) wants access to the service '00001124-0000-1000-8000-00805f9b34fb'. If i grant access, it does nothing, and will simply request it again when a key is typed. how to make the bluetooth service automatically pair (either through config files, or better yet, through the GUI?)
I have a laptop. . .Dell 1150. Ubuntu installed, bluetooth device installed and my bluetooth keyboard and mouse works like a charm. I decided to load up my same exact Ibuntu on my desktop, use the same keyboard on it, and the mouse too. I tested it on the laptop, just in case it would not work in Ibuntu, and I didn't want to wipe out my Windows XP on my desktop and find out Ibuntu would not work on it with a wireless keyboard. Since it worked very well with my laptop, I figured it would work just as good with my desktop. I wiped my desktop out, and installed Ibuntu. Everything worked fantastic. Until I tried to install the bluetooth.
When I plug in my Bluetooth device, Ibuntu finds it and asks to set up your device. I attempt to set up my keyboard/mouse combo and it asks for a 6 digit code (like it is supposed to). I enter the code and press enter. From here, the problem starts. Ubuntu "claims" to connect to the keyboard, shows it connected, but my keyboard does not work at all. Neither does the mouse that is built into the keyboard. I type and nothing happens. This also brings up (sometimes) another message that says my keyboard is trying to connect to the bluetooth device please enter keyboard PIN. Well.
I can't enter anything, because the keyboard does not work! The mouse does not work! I can (without any problems) disconnect and connect to my laptop, but I can't do this to my desktop. Both are dell units. Desktop is about 3 years old, laptop is about 8 years old. Both running Ubuntu, the latest version. Both recognize the bluetooth transceiver. I have tried different USB ports on the desktop with no avail. I would really like to use my desktop as a unit to my TV with a wireless keyboard, not my laptop. It is much faster, more memory, and I can use the TV as a monitor.
I'm trying to use an Apple wireless keyboard with Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) but the fn key is not working at all. If I start up xev and hit the fn key it generates no event. What do I need to do for it to work. It seems as if it should work when viewing pages like URL...
I tried to do a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04, but when I get to the screen if I want to test or install Ubuntu, the keyboard and mouse (bluetooth) don't work. I tried to resync the peripherals, I disconnected usb connector base of the tower and putting it back but nothing works for me. I have a Logitech Desktop MX 5000 (Bluetooth).
I'm using an Apple bluetooth keyboard, model A1016 the one with a white bottom inside clear plastic. The machine is a Mac Mini (2,1) and I also have an Apple bluetooth mouse. The mouse works fine on Ubuntu 10.04. The keyboard has issues.
When I add the keyboard using the bluetooth applet, I find that I can't assign a specified PIN. I have to use automatic PIN, and then type the random number presented. That works until I reboot the machine.
After reboot the bluetooth applet menu shows both the mouse (connected) and the keyboard (not connected). If I tell it to connect the keyboard, nothing happens. The only thing I can do is delete the keyboard, re-add it, with a new random PIN.
I think my computer must be haunted, as I've so far failed at 3 different ways of installing Maverick on my 2007 aluminium imac! I've written off using a VM, and I'm currently stuck trying to make a dual boot setup.
So I've followed the guide at [URL].. and got as far as rebooting with the CD in, and selecting Ubuntu, but then when everything loads I'm left at the screen where I can select try or install, with no way of selecting either as my mouse (apple bluetooth mighty mouse) and keyboard (apple bluetooth wireless aluminium keyboard) don't seem to be connected. I've got past this point by hitting random keys after booting and selecting the CD - this takes me into a more basic looking menu where the keyboard does still work and I can select install, try etc.
So I can get as far as selecting try, and get a working Ubuntu desktop. However, when the desktop loads, my keyboard and mouse are again not working. By connecting a USB keyboard and mouse, I'm able to get my mouse to pair, using the bluetooth menu and going through the setup. However, I'm stuck trying to get my keyboard to pair.
Going into set up new device and searching initially shows up my keyboard, then it disappears. If I wait it randomly comes back and disappears again. If I click on next whilst it is available, I can get as far as putting in a pin, but when I press enter it says Failed..
Sorry for the rambling post - I basically have 2 questions: 1- Is it expected that bluetooth keyboards and mice won't work during the installation menus? Half my problem is that I don't know what should be working and when (should I have to boot into the trial installation and setup the keyboard and mouse, or should it be set up automatically?).
2- Has anyone else seen the same problem with the apple wireless keyboard failing to pair? I've searched the forums and google, and found lots of people with problems with bluetooth keyboards, but none which seem to match what I'm seeing. I don't know if there's any point in pressing on with the installation using the USB keyboard and mouse in the hope that things will work in the full install, or if they don't work in the trial install then thats my lot.
I've paired a bluetooth keyboard and mouse with my machine using the Gnome bluetooth wizard and the keyboard and mouse work fine. Then, if I let the computer sit for a few hours and then try to use the keyboard or mouse, nothing happens. When paired with my windows machine, and I start using the keyboard and mouse after a hour or two, the keyboard takes a second or two to start working again. I suspect that it turns itself off, and then has to reconnect, and that in Linux, the reconnection isn't working properly. I've found other instances on the forums of people with the same symptoms, but never any clear answers. Does anyone know what's going on?
