Ubuntu :: Bluetooth-enabled Notebook And Used To Eventually Turn On/off The Wireless Switch?

Aug 1, 2010

I have a bluetooth-enabled notebook and I used to eventually turn on/off the wireless switch, which disabled wi-fi and bluetooth capabilities.Recently I turned on the switch to find the bluetooth icon missing from the Notifications area at the panel. When I type bluetooth-properties at the terminal a windows pops up saying "Your computer does not have any Bluetooth adapters plugged in." No further hardware/software changes were made recently.

Fedora Networking :: HP Mini 110 Broadcom Wireless - Can't Get The Card To Turn On Using The Slide Switch

Sep 11, 2009

I have an HP mini 110 with Fedora 11 install. I installed the broadcom-wl and wl-kmod from yum but still no wireless. First I can't get the broadcom card to turn on using the slide switch on the front of the computer. The device is inactive in the network configuration-devices window. The card is not in the network configuration hardware window. When I try to add it manually, there is no entry for the card in the drop down list. I am new to Fedora but have used linux for years. Unfortunately this is my first attempt at wireless networking.

The posts and google stuff doesn't say much more than "yum install broadcom-wl" Can anyone point me into the right direction? I have a feeling I am missing something very simple, because this computer dual boots Linux Mint and wireless works flawlessly.

Slackware :: Poweroff Does Not Turn Off Fujitsu N3530 Notebook?

Jun 17, 2010

I recently upgraded the hard drive on my Fujitsu N3530 notebook to WD Scorpio Blue 500 MB, and created a dual-boot configuration with WinXP, installing 32-bit Slackware 13.1 from DVD. Grub 0.97 bootloader is installed on superblock of root partition. Running KDE. Using the generic kernel with appropriate initrd for ext4 filesystem on root partition.

Everything runs fine so far, except the computer won't power off the computer. I've tried using the KDE shutdown, and shutting down from command line - same result. Also same result if I use the huge kernel or the generic kernel.

The last message I see is:
Remounting root filesystem read-only.
/dev/sda3 on / type ext4 (ro)
Power down.

... and then the shutdown process stalls and I have to turn off the computer by pressing and holding the power button.

This is the first time I've installed any Linux OS on this notebook. I have Slackware 13.0 running fine on a Thinkpad T61 with no poweroff issue.

From reading various posts, this looks to be related to ACPI. I tried adding "acpi=force" to the kernel line in menu.lst, but it made no difference.

/var/log/messages shows "acpid exiting" and then "exiting on signal 15" as last entries during shutdown.s.

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth Working - Enabled But Not Finding Devices On Scan?

I am using Ubuntu, now installed KDE (kubuntu) and I have Bluetooth working and enabled but for some strange reason the bluetooth scan is not finding any devices in spite of the fact that I have my mobile phone with bluetooth on and discoverable. My laptop is HP Touchsmart tm2 2102tu. Here's output of my hciconfig -a

OpenSUSE Install :: Turn Bluetooth Off As Default During Boot?

Mar 16, 2010

Since 11.2 bluetooth is defaulted to always turned on during boot. Is there any way to have bluetooth off as default during boot? I don't want it completely disabled as I sometimes require it but I'd prefer if the BT radio was in the off state as default.Really the bluetooth state should be persistent across boots - i.e. remember the last state.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Disable Disabling Wireless From Notebook

Feb 19, 2010

I've bought an Acer Aspire 5810T(imeline),I notice after installation of opensuse 11.2 that network-manager has been installed by default probably because my laptop computer is containing a wireless device.I only want my computer using ethernet (with the cable) and so want to know which methods exist to shut down as securely as possible wireless to avoid any missuse activity

Is there any possibility to shutdown traffic by locking with a password?I do not have any wifi relay or antenna at home but want to avoid any relay in my neighbourhood from getting into my computer.

Debian Configuration :: How To Switch On Bluetooth ON TOSHIBA Laptop

May 4, 2010

Just resently I managed to activate internal bluetooth adapter. I'm not expert in command line and everything I could was done in GNOME. Same like most other systems an icon appears in panel bar whenever I used to type <modprobe omnibook ectype=14>. It took me some time to set everything with the kind help from URL... So the thing is that after fingering with some newly installed packages concerning b-tooth utilities that icon is gone and b-tooth is not active.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Automatic Switch Audo Output Control To Bluetooth?

Apr 25, 2010

I'm using a Hama Voiis bluetooth audio device connected to my stereo. Both my girlfriend (running 9.10) and me (10.4) can pair with, connect to and stream audio from whatever application we use to the device. However to do so requires a couple of manual steps which I'd like to optimise.

First it's necessary to manually connect to device, since we both want to stream to this, connecting manually seems the best since I suppose only one can connect at any one time. Once connected it's necessary to select "Output" in "Sound Preferences" in order to use the keyboard or multimedia keys to change the volume. This latter step is a little annoying since it has to be done every time we connect. Does anyone have a solution that automatically makes this change when connecting?

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Get Wireless Going On HP G60 Notebook?

Nov 30, 2010

My grandson is now running on Ubuntu, but I tried an upteem dozen times to get it to install and have Wireless working, and two times the light went from orange to blue, but some later problem caused me to do the install over, and when I did that, I would lose the wireless mode. And every attempt I made with the Network settings under System/Preferences or System/Administration did not help.

Now I wrote here about my long effort getting wireless going in my own L355-S7915 Toshiba notebook, and how I finally beat it without actually knowing what I did that finally got through, but that won't work on this HP G60-630US model. Fact is, HP doesn't neven name the motherboard or the chipset, or the Wireless Adapter involved. I keep searching for more specific language, but nothing turns up.

If anybody has found a way to beat this thing, I sure would like to know about it. One thing I remember doing was using wicd in place of Network Manager at one point, and it really did work better on my machine, but I can't find wicd as something I can install now with the newer versions of Ubuntu. So far I have tried 9.04, 9.10, 10.04 LTS, and 10.10, and my sone is presently making his first shot at Ubuntu using 9.04 64-bit version. Still no wireless. If it shows up in a screen menu, and it doesn't always, it will be grayed out and might show that it is disconnected, and I don't know how to connect it.

Any help would be much appreciated. Again, this is an HP G60-630US laptop I am dealing with here, and stuff I went thru way back then has gotten lost in the midst of my 69 year old collection of memories. I went back through what I wrote then, but it is not a match to what I am dealing with now.
