Ubuntu Networking :: Lost Bluetooth Support In 10.04 / Get That Back?

Sep 17, 2010

I upgraded my netbook (HP Mini 5101) from 9.10 to 10.04 yesterday. Everthing (including bluetooth) seemed to work, as it did before. Today I tried to install a 2.6.35 kernel from maverick backports (the kernel ppa), but it didn't work for me and I removed it again. Now my bluetooth is gone (bluetooth applet does not show any devices) but wireless still works.

I already tried to remove and reinstall the driver package via apt-get (sudo apt-get un/install bcmwl-kernel-source bcmwl-modaliases) but nothing helped. code...

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Get Icon Back And To Enable Bluetooth

Apr 4, 2010

I have a Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook. Even though the bluetooth light is on on the machine itself, the bluetooth icon at the top of the screen has been greyed out. Now, after trying to fix the problem, the icon has disappeared altogether.Before the icon disappeared, while the icon was greyed out, I was unable to enable it. If I clicked on the greyed-out icon, it told me bluetooth was on but disabled.Now I need to know how to get the icon back and to enable bluetooth.

Fedora Networking :: Lost WPA Support After Updates

Mar 5, 2011

Running FC14 64 bit with KDE. I have an atheros wireless card that was working fine for months. Just recently I downloaded and installed some updates I got automatically. After a reboot, I have suddenly lost my wireless connection. I am still able to connect to unsecured networks but my network uses WPA and the status of the connection always freezes on "Awaiting Authentication". When connecting, it pops up the secrets windows asking for the wpa key even though its already entered. I've reset my home router several times to test various configurations with no encryption and with WPA. My key is correct but it will not connect. I've researched this issue and found others to have the same problem though their fixes have not worked for me.

I've gone through a few things. Wireless radio button on, networking and wireless enabled in fedora. Card still shown in lspci and with iwconfig. Funny enough, there was no wireless card listed in Network Manager. So I added the connection again and set it to be controlled by network manager and start on boot. No difference.

I'm wondering exactly what was updated that caused this. I didn't pay attention to what updates they were. This update occurred 3/5/2011. I've tried booting to the two previous backup kernels, but that doesnt help either. Also ran dmesg | grep wlan0 to find that the device was not active or ready but I could still connect to unsecured networks. So I'm stumped and would really rather not reinstall. Besides, when I get the updates again, it will probably do the same thing. Is this a bug? I would post more information but I am not with my box at the moment.

Ubuntu Networking :: Lost Internet Connection - Now Can't Get It Back

Jan 23, 2010

I am running ubuntu 9.1 on a Dell Dimension 2400. After installing ubuntu on the pc, it was automatically recognizing my router and connecting to the internet fine via ethernet. Then, my roommate unplugged the router and it won't recognize it. I can't access my router settings, and ubuntu is recognizing it as "inactive" but every other computer in the apartment runs fine. My PC uses a broadcom ethernet controller, and my router is a Linksys wireless N.

Ubuntu :: Get Full Bluetooth Support For Samsung S8000?

Aug 19, 2010

I have a Samsung Jet S8000, which reports to have the following bluetooth services: Headset, Handsfree, Bluetooth stereo headset, Serial port, Dial-up, Basic printing, File Transfer, Object push, SIM access, Phonebook access. When I search for bluetooth devices and find my notebook (kubuntu 10.04, kbluetooth installed), my phone reports that this device (i.e. the notebook) has only the Object push bluetooth service. Whereas Windows (without installing any software) offers to use my mobile as a modem, to browse its content, to be a handsfree headset, etc...

From my phone I can send files to the notebook, but I need to make about 4 trials to succeed once - in the other 3 cases the file sending process stops on the phone with a 'Sending failed' message...What is the problem with this? Where should I debug? What software should I install to have full access to my phone? Is there an app to easily synchronize my phonebooks? bitpim and gnokii don't seem to support this phone.

Ubuntu Networking :: The Bluetooth Manager Does Not Detect A Bluetooth Dongle?

Nov 2, 2010

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?

Asus - BT211 mini bluetooth dongle

Code: http:[url].... - windows driver under download section.

Model: Unknown model (id =0x3000)
Vendor: atheros Communications, inc[code]....

Hardware :: Bluetooth Headset - USB Dongle Support For A2DP?

Feb 23, 2009

I'm running Slackware with 2.6.26 kernel. I've got bluez-utils,libs version 3.26 (Slackware 12.1 precompiled package), and kdebluetooth. I'm using a Digicom Palladio Usb Bluetooth adapter. In general, bluetooth seems to work; I can send files to my Nokia phone. Now, I've got this Bluetooth stereo headset (brand rather unknown, and I've thrown the package away, I've only got the little user manual, and there is no indication on who built this thing).

This is what I've tried so far:
- turn the headset on and turned pairing mode on;
- kbluetooth -> Configuration -> Input devices (input?) -> Search;
- kbluetooth finds the headset and asks that I insert the pin code; a little star appears next to the name of the headset ("Stereo Headset"), but after a couple of seconds disappears and at the same time I hear a beep coming from the headset (disconnection?). Anyway, just before the beep, noise came from the headset (as if it had turned on), then, after the beep, nothing.
- Important thing: the headset manual says the Usb dongle must support A2DP and AVRCP. I don't know how to find out whether my dongle supports them, anyway, if I execute 'sdptool', in the "Services" section I get: [Code} ....

Does this mean that bluez/my usb dongle doesn't support A2DP? Anyway, I followed the instructions on "Bluez - Trac - AudioDevices" [URL] and added the specified part to .asoundrc. Of cource, even if I tell xine to use "bluetooth" as pcm device, it says the device is unknown.

Ubuntu :: Lost GUI After Running Grub / Get It Back?

Feb 5, 2011

Login in problems:
I was trying to fix the brightness on my toshiba T130 Satellite laptop and found these instruction [Note: I did not try XRANDR option]
If backlight control doesn't work with the 'XRANDR' option above, use this code...

Safe the file, run 'sudo update-grub' and reboot.

Credits: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...id/+bug/392948[/INDENT]http://www.linlap.com/wiki/toshiba+satellite+t130
However after running these instructions and rebooting my laptop I lost the GUI, and do not know how to get it back.
If it helps the loader screen with the 4 dots has gone slightly skewed, and I've downloaded the most recent update changes.

I can get GUI through recovery mode and running it in failsafex, but I don't think this is a good solution.

Ubuntu :: NTFS Partition Lost / Get That Back?

Feb 26, 2011

I'm using Windows 7 and Ubuntu in two differents partitions in my hard drive. I was on Windows 7 and decided to reboot. When the grub screen should have appeared, instead the computer rebooted itself. It continues to do so. I put Ubuntu 10.10 Live CD and it keeps "loading" forever, but doesn't hang. In the console, it said something like "input/output" error. I tried with my Win 7 DVD and it was the same: it doesn't reach the part where it shows the menu with all the installation options.

I tried with Gparted and it loaded fine. It showed all my partitions, but there wasn't (I think) more that I could have done with it. I tried then user Super Grub Boot. I finally could enter Ubuntu. Everything is fine except that it doesn't show my Window partition. It's like it doesn't exist anymore, so I can't backup my files. Now, I haven't tried loading Win 7 from Super Grub Boot (I'm going to do it just as soon as I post this), but this is pretty weird. Anyone have any idea what is going on and what can I do to this this?

Ubuntu :: Dropbox Lost A Lot Of Files / What To Get Them Back?

Apr 23, 2011

I had everything backed up so it is no great disaster, but drop box lost a lot of my files. Some of the folders with missing files now have thumbs.db in them, but when you go to the dropbox site, you don't even see that.

I had thought about using dropbox as my main backup solution. That would be a big mistake.

Ubuntu :: Lost Icons / Switch It Back?

May 17, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 on a usb stick and have been running it from there. I was messing around with the "Login Screen" utility and changed the session choice to "User defined session" (or something similar). I thought this would allow me to pick the session to use (Unity, Gnome) but that was wrong. So right now, when I login, I have a blank screen with no menu bars. If someone could give me the commandline command to run the "Login Screen", I should be able to switch it back.

Ubuntu :: Accidently Lost External Data / Get That Back?

Jul 29, 2010

So I am working on a clients PC, and after I saved their data on an external hard drive I left it plugged in while I reinstalled Windows for them.....I HATE Windows. Stupid OS doesnt know any better than to just go deleting everything. Ubuntu would have known better than to delete multiple hard drives like that.

Anyway, please tell me I can salvage this data for my client? It was probably just reformatted. The data should still be there right?

Ubuntu :: Mistakenly Lost Data From External HDD / Get That Back?

Sep 21, 2010

I have a problem I don't know how to solve. Today I bought a netbook and while waiting for the new Ubuntu Unity release to come out, I thought of trying out Crunchbang instead of Windows that came with it. Browsing on my Ubuntu desktop machine, I found a guide for making Crunchbang live USB stick, and i followed the procedure. However, I made a very stupid mistake. The guide said I should enter the command:
sudo dd if=/path/to/iso/crunchbang-10-alpha-01-openbox-i686.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=4M;sync

where "of=...." part should be replaced with the name of the HDD. I forgot that I have an external HDD mounted and mistakenly copied the data to it.
After this, I cannot see the content of my external HDD anymore. Instead, i have this 620mb large Crunchbang-install device.

I know what I did was stupid, but is there a way to get the content of my HDD back? I have some valuable data on it.
