I am a new Linux user and Maverick Meerkat happens to be my first Linux system i installed. Setting up wireless was pretty easy in GNOME as it displayed my wireless system and i just entered the WEP key and i was all set.I decided to install KDE. After i installed KDE i wanted to setup internet There. However the KNetwork manager is not as friendly as Network Manager. It does detect my wireless router, but after i enter the WEP key it does not get connected.
It was asking me all sorts of question like SSID which i did not use in GNOME at all and neither do i know that information.I tried wcid network manager but removing network-manager and knetwork manager.wcid did get connected to my wireless but it was unable to acquire my IP address. (please do note that both k-network manager and wcid network manager work well with wired internet connection). Could you please help me setup internet in KDE? the truth is internet responds better in KDE than GNOME for my computer somehow.
I need to setup a network. Wireless. There is a toshiba A100 satelite with Kubuntu 10.10/win7 a desktop win7 and a desktop ubuntu 10.10/win 7. I just cannot figure out how to make all these pcs communicate, regardless of te OS. (on win7 they all work fine)
Boot of a new minimal system hangs on "Stopping save kernel messages" or "stopping system v runlevel compatibility". I have ubuntu minimal iso x86_64 from usb stick created with unetbootin (don't have a cd drive on the machine in question), and after that I didsudo aptitude install gnome-terminal network-manager-gnome gdm geditsudo rebootnever got a system back. Annoyingly I can't boot into the recovery mode either, and it seems the keyboard is only semi-responsive (i.e. many dead keys when at the grub menu).qualms about reinstalling, but I've done this a few times and ended up at the same place every time.
I'm struggling to figure out the "right" dpi settings for my kubuntu setup. Currently ubuntu-karmic, kde-4.4.2, linux-18.104.22.168, and the new open source radeon drivers.I have a ThinkPad T400 with a 1440x900 14.1" display. That gives the display panel a resolution of 120dpi (see http://directedge.us/node/36).
'xdpyinfo | grep resolution' properly reports a resolution of 120x120 dpi.
However, 'grep DPI /var/log/Xorg.0.log' returns '(==) RADEON(0): DPI set to (96, 96)'.I initially had my KDE settings set to 96x96 dpi, as this "feels" more "right" to me. When I set KDE to 120x120, 8pt text seems pretty big, and the fonts in my gtk apps go crazy-huge. OTOH, a 72 point font should always be 1 inch at the proper resolution, and that is about spot-on at KDE's 120dpi setting (at least in native kde/qt apps; gtk is another story).I just want to use my display at its native resolution and have it look good all the way around. why radeon is logging 96x96 dpi to xorg.log, when the display is clearly 120dpi? I'm currently running without an xorg.conf. Is there an option to force dpi that I should add there?
I just bought a Dell 537s machine and configured it for dual boot of Windows 7 and Kubuntu 9.10. On my old dual boot machine I had the Windows System and the Linux System on different disk partitions. That way I could write fstab in such a way as to make the Windows System read-only as seen from Linux, so Linux couldn't mess up any Windows System files (and since Windows can't read ext3, Windows couldn't mess up the Linux System).
But the new machine came with Windows 7 installed and gobbling up 3 primary partitions. Kubuntu installed itself in such a way that Linux can read/write to the Windows System. This makes me nervous that Kubuntu might be able to mess up Windows 7.
Is there any way to make specific Windows 7 directories/files unwriteable as seen from Linux without altering their behavior in Windows 7?
I was trying to setup gogui to work on kubuntu, using instructions found on an ubuntu forum: [URL]. I did not even have Java installed yet, so I first tried installing some of the sun-java6 packages. Usually kpackage is good at picking dependent packages and installing them also, but apparently not this time. Next time I tried using kpackage, I was not able to do anything. It gave me a message saying I had broken dependencies, and should use synaptic or aptitude. I do not even have these installed! I think that un-installing the Java software and starting over should do the trick, but I'm not sure how to do this from the command line. Also the instructions in the link above never worked for me.
I have a bit off a strange one here, my internet stops and starts. One minute it is fine and the next it will not connect to any web pages or even to the router then its fine again. My machine is a new build Pc were I installed 11.04 as a fresh install, everything was fine till a few days ago when this all started up. I connect to my router via a wired network, the new PC also has a second HD with windows 7 on it and that is fine with the net so I know it must be some sort off software issue but I have not idea what.
In December I finally filled up my root partition and broke Suse 11.1. I therefore resized my partitions and installed Suse 11.3 on /root. I didn't not touch my /home partition.
I notice that when I leave my machine and come back the screen has locked. I have tried to turn off the screensaver, but it hasn't worked. I have Googled, but unfortunately the screen shots don't look like what I have and the instructions to stop this do not seem to match what I am seeing on the screen.
I have a tenda wireless adaptor running on 11.04 natty. The USB id is: 148F 3070
Using the already installed drivers rt2800usb it can connect to all 13 channels but is very flaky, transfers slowing and stopping regularly. The rt2870sta driver is a lot more stable, but it will only connect to channels 1-11, but I need to use channel 13 due to massive wifi congestion on other channels...
I've tried iwpriv but it says there are no ioctls for the device.
Is there any way to get the installed driver rt2870sta to scan and connect to channel 13?
I've also tried to install the latest drivers from the ralink website: rt2870sta says it can see all 14 channels, but fails to scan. I also tried rt3070 driver but I cannot insmod as there are errors...
Ubuntu 9.10 2.6.31-17-generic ISC DHCPd version 3.1.2
The DHCP service starts fine on boot and with manual start then works fine for about 4-5 hours. After that it just stops on its own. I start the service up and everything works fine for about 4-5 more hours untul it stops again.
What do I need to do to ensure that the service will stay uo 24x7x365?
Have a couple of very annoying problems. I recently did a re-install of Kubuntu Maverick on my HTPC/fileserver box.It has an onboard (Realtek?) audio card, recognized as... I think, ALC888... Yeah, not sure, KInfoCenter lists a bunch:ALSA Sequencer DeviceUSB 2881 Device ALSA Control Device (my DVB-T stick)ALSA Timer Device
HDA Intel ALSA hardware specific Device ALC888 Analog ALSA Capture Device ALC888 Analog ALSA Capture Device
Im trying to setup multiple domU through the default bridge setup. I am able to access only one of them through the network at a time. If you ping one of the domU it works perfectly but you cannot ping any of the others until you stop pinging the one and even then it takes a bit before you can. Ive looked around for a while and seen similar problems but nothing ever seems quite the same. Im probably missing something really stupid. Or is this the way the bridge is supposed to behave? Do i need to use a routed virtual network?
I have two OS in my system. Windows& and Kubuntu. Both are in separate hard disks. I was using both. In between i have upgraded my system. now when i am giving priority to hard disk containing kubuntu, i can login to kubuntu, but cant get in to windows7. i have upgraded grub but not working. when i am giving priority to hard disk containig windows7 it enters and work properly. but not working in the previous.
Tri-booting. They were installed in the order I listed above. I ran into a few bugs with Kubuntu, so I no longer want to use it. I want to use GParted on a LiveCD to format Kubuntu and expand my Ubuntu home partition to sit on top of Kubuntu's space right now. If I nuke Kubuntu, will Grub still exist with my Ubuntu/XP entries to boot?
I would like to apply KDE on my Kubuntu because the current one blew up. But each time I to sudo get-apt it seems to be fetching from the cloud. Is there a way I can make it to read from my local Kubuntu CD? I have both Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Kubuntu Live CDs.
I believe the local disk read should be faster to translate than to bite the bytes across thousands of miles over the wire right?
I've had Kubuntu 9.10 32-bit running on my laptop since it came out, but in the past month all its networked printers have disappeared from the configuration, and I can't set up any more. I've been through the forums again and again and cannot fix it. I've installed and reinstalled lots of packages related to CUPS but it doesn't seem to make a difference.I'm not sure what has happened, but I have lots of clues. Since I'm reaching the limit of my know-how here, I'll just list all the clues.
I'm pretty sure the problem is in my Kubuntu laptop, because in my SOHO setup I also have a Kubuntu 9.10 desktop (this time 64 bit) connected to a printer, and I have successfully printed through that from both a Windows XP laptop and a Xubuntu 9.10 box.On the Xubuntu 9.10 box, I just asked for the GUI print configurator and it automatically detected the network printer. No muss no fuss.But on the Kubuntu laptop, when I go into the print configurator, here's what happens:
- it shows two options, "new printer" and "server settings" (image a.png) - entering "server settings" everything is greyed out and unchangeable (image b.png) - entering "new printer" shows only one option for a connection, "other" (image c.png) - after entering the address of a printer i know works (image d.png) the configurator has detected the printer (image e.png) - but then attempting to move forward it crashes with no explanation.
Running the non-kubuntu version of the configurator GUI provides a bit more information before it fails. When I try to access the desktop with the printer attached it wants a username and password. (which wasn't necessary for the two client machines who successfully printed.) And at the end of the process there is an error: "there was an error during the CUPS operation: client-error-forbidden".
Two more clues: - when I try to go with my browser to localhost:631 the browser can't establish a connection - but I can see the cups page on the printer's host machine at 192.168.0.104:631 no problem.
I installed new Kubuntu 10.04 on my laptop and got some problem with creation of my VPN connection. Actually the problem is that in network manager on VPN tab button "Add" is inactive. I had the same problem with Ubuntu 9.1, but after installation of all packages everything was OK. Now I already have installed all required packages, but "Add VPN" button still inactive/
According to Ubuntu documentation, Neatx should be installed on Lucid but there is no support for this on the Neatx homepage. In fact, the Neatx webpage says they are not doing releases because of bugs. With that said will FreeNx work on Lucid?
I have ubuntu installed on my laptop which works fine. It has a pcmcia wifi card. When I tried to run the kubuntu live cd it couldn't find the card. As the drivers will be the same how do I find the drivers to allow me to use kubuntu? I plan to make a live usb which I'll add the drivers to so that it'll work each time I plug in. Alternatively if I can find the drivers then I'll just enable them each time via the cd.
I have recently bought a Toshiba Portege R700-15Q and installed kubuntu 10.04. A similar problem happens with kubuntu 10.10 booted from USB stick. I am a long-time linux user but not experienced with fixing problems. The wireless network is not enabled and it appears that linux does not know that there is a wireless capibility. This is both with and without an ethernet connection at boot. The wireless light on the computer is lit up, but when I go to Manage Connections the wireless and mobile broadband tabs are greyed out so can't be accessed.
iwconfig gives "no wireless extensions" for lo, eth0 and pan0. lspci returns "Network controller: Broadcom Cooperation BCM4313 802.11b/g LP-PHY (rev 01)" lshw -C network returns "*-network UNCLAIMED", along with a block of other information which does not indicate a problem to me.
I have a problem with establishing a VPN connection, it's driving me nuts already. No matter what I try, which packages I (re)install, or how many configuration settings i change.. the result is always the same (see syslog at the end of this post). On the same machine, but on a different harddrive, I have installed Windows 7. The VPN connection works without any problems on this system.
I played already with KNetworkManager, NetworkManagerm, KVpn and so on. Further I re-installed each VPN- and network packages multiple times (eg KNetworkManager, NetworkManager, network-manager-pptp, pptp-linux). Further I tested almost every possible VPN configuration (PAP,CHAP,MSCHAP(v2),EAP,MPPE, stateful encryption, no password, BSD compression)... My syslog is as follow:
My university uses 802.1x Dynamic WEP, with PEAP, MSCHAPv2, and no CA certificate. Our IT department actually provides instructions for Ubuntu, and they work, but I can't get it to work in Kubuntu. Here's the instructions using the Gnome Network Manager applet:
- Change the LEAP setting to Dynamic WEP (802.1x). - Change the Authentication setting from TLS to Protected EAP (PEAP). - Leave the Anonymous Identity option blank. - Leave the CA certificate setting to None. - Change the PEAP version to version 0 if running 8.10, or Automatic if running 9.04+. - Leave the inner authentication setting to MSCHAPv2. - Enter your username. - Enter your password. - Select OK. A warning message will appear about having no certificate; click Ignore. - Click Connect.
I'm using Kubuntu 10.10. All the same settings are there for the KDE plasma network manager applet, but the connection always fails immediately. How do I go about debugging this? Is there a way to test this out from the command line? (WiFi in general works fine, on regular WEP and WPA secured networks; just having trouble with this one).
I have a computer with xubuntu 9.10 and a pc with kubuntu 9.10, and I need to operate on the xubuntu desktop from kubuntu. On KDE there are Krfb/krdc for the desktop, but what can i install on xubuntu to do this?
Is there someone out there that makes something simple that you can network and share a printer between Kubuntu and Vista? I have my office computer running Kubuntu, which also has the printer attached to it. My media machine downstairs is running Vista, which I'd like to be able to print and share files from. I've been doing some reading that you need to use Samba. So, I installed Samba through Synaptic, and it appears that nothing happened. So, I did some more googling, and found I had to install something about system-config-samba, so I did.
I now have a Samba icon under k-menu > System > Samba. However, when I click on this icon, nothing happens. It does nothing (just like clicking on the Network Manager icon, which does nothing as well). So, I am now utterly confused. Is there a way to change samba settings via gui? I'm not comfortable with typing unknown commands into the terminal, as usually there is no explanation as to what's going on. If there was a step by step explanation, that would be ok, but as of now, there is nothing. Is there a simple setup tool out there?
I'm having trouble connecting to our home wireless network in Kubuntu Lucid. I was hoping someone here might be able to help. I can connect with no problem in Ubuntu and Xubuntu; I'm having difficulty in Kubuntu only. It might just be me being unfamiliar with the KDE network management app, I don't know.
1. I click on the network icon in the system tray, and choose "manage connections". I click on the "wireless" tab, and click "add".
2. I enter the name of our network in the SSID field (our router doesn't broadcast its SSID; however, if I click "scan" the neighbors' wireless networks do appear in the list) under the "wireless" tab, then I go the "wireless security" tab, and choose "WPA/WPA2 - personal" and enter the password. I click OK.
3. Now when I right-click on the network icon and choose "create network connection", the new connection for our network that I just made shows up in the list, but it has an icon showing a pen on paper instead of the broadcasting signal icon that appears next to the neighboring networks. It also says my connection is "insecure", even though I chose WPA and put in the password. (Neighbors' networks do say WPA, WEP,etc.)
4. I select my network connection that I created above, and click connect, and nothing happens. No connection is created. how the KDE network app works; I've used mostly XFCE and GNOME in the past, but I've heard good things about Kubuntu Lucid and really would like to take it for a spin. However, this computer has only a wireless connection, so I really need to get it working.
After a recient update to the freenx libraries KDE on Kubuntu 10.04 stopped working but other desktops like gnome kept running. The problem wasn't in the normal log files, but it was found in the .xsession-errors file in the user directory on the server. After the update NX is trying to start kde with the /usr/bin/startkde4 command which doesn't exist. Instead make a link from /usr/bin/startkde to the non existent /usr/bin/startkde4 and it will work again. To do this use the command:
I've just completed switching both my laptop and desktop from Ubuntu 10.04 to Kubuntu 10.04, all seems to be working well, except that I can't get my Virgin Mobile HUAWEI E160E wireless broadband modem working. I used to have it working flawlessly in Ubuntu, I've used the smae step as described in this post: [URL] that worked for me with Ubuntu, but the Wireless Broadband tab is greyed out under the manage connections dialog. I'm running the 64-bit version of Kubuntu BTW.
