i am new one here and have a question.i dont have internet connection home and i want to install ubuntu. i find a dvd release here [URL].. and it suppose it has more things than the cd version.i think to it has because its a big iso file. so, if i install this one, am i going to be able to play dvds, to work with openofice, and other stufs, or do i need something else to? what about grafik card driver?
I am a new user to linux. I downloaded and installed ubuntu 9.10 on my old desktop to try it out because i have always liked the idea of linux but have never really found the time to use or learn to use it. having had an old dos computer i can vaguely remember the idea of using a command line to change directories etc. so i just decided to wipe out xp on the desktop and install ubuntu lol. Installation went smooth but then i ran into some problems.
Unfortunately i use iphone tethering for access to the internet but ubuntu will only recognize my iphone as a picture storage device. so i did some research and found that i had to download and install some packages to set up tethering on ubuntu. so on my laptop running vista i downloaded libusb-1.0.6, cmake-2.8.0, libiphone-0.9.5, usbmuxd-1.0.0, and some other packages such as ifuse and libgpod. they were all .tar.bz2 files or .tar.gz files. I put these on a jump drive and took the jumpdrive and put it into my desktop. what i was wondering is if there is a way to install these packages from a usb jumpdrive? or is there a simpler way that i may have overlooked to establish an internet connection.
I just recently Ubuntu 9.10 and have never used Linux at all before. I was wondering, all the links and tips and everything tell me to use Ubuntu Software Center. I haven't had a chance to actually go to the Software Center yet but does it require an internet connection to install software or can I download the tar.gz / tar.bz2 files from sources such as Softpedia.com and still install them using Software Center without a Internet Connection?
I don't yet have an internet connection on my machine so I am using cyber cafes to do my research and whatnot. However, most of the stuff I read concerning updates and installations rely heavily on the machine using an internet connection to automatically install various packages.I don't mind reading up myself on this kind of thing but I think I need a pointer in the right direction as "ubuntu package install without apt/get" doesn't bring up much on a google search (the only entry on the first page is a post on this forum back from 2005 about kernal compiling!).
As an example, the file I would like to install is "aircrack-ng-1.0.tar.gz", which I've already downloaded and saved to my machine's desktop. I'm not really asking how to install aircrack, per se, but just any kind of package without relying on an internet connection (i.e. download the program/package to a flash disk and then on to my machine).
I have Ubuntu 10.04 on my PC but I do not have access to internet (I have an Acer 3610 and before to install NDSI wrapper I have to install a Kernel). I have the most recent Kernel available on my external hardrive. I do not know how to use sudo command to install it.
I've read a lot on the internet about various ways of doing this but i've been unsuccessful each time. Basically what i've done is accidently un-installed network-manager because I was having trouble staying connected on my WPA network. The easiest way of reinstalling it I know of is using the CD but I don't have a CD ROM drive and the pen drive I used to install it I no longer have.
I tried using a program called Keryx but you need python installed and from some reason this doesn't come with ubuntu 10.10. I've also downloaded the .deb packages but I still need to download 200kb which is a killer. I've also downloaded it from here too [URL] but the install file makes no sense to me as i'm not a massive linux user. One last thing reinstalling isn't really an option as i've already put a lot of time into setting up this computer.
At the moment I am installing a VMware Ubuntu machine. This machine has no internet connection.
I want to install wine, so I can install software that only runs under Windows.
I cannot find the packages to install wine under the VMware machine that will download to windows.
I have no clue on how to handle the source of wine, so I can download the source of wine, copy that to the VMware machine and use 'make' there.
How to proceed?
Ok, tried to compile source of wine on the VMware machine. It gave an error, since it was missing package flex. Compiling flex from source gave an error, since it was missing package m4. Trying to compile m4 gave an error, see make_install.log.
These were my steps:
Went to /usr/local/bin/ and unpacked m4 there. Went into the m4 directory (m4-1.4.14). /configure make make install
I can't get the configure log uploaded as an attachment, since it is too big. Splitting it into smaller sizes doesn't help either , since it will become more than 3 files (and 3 is the max to upload). If you want that log, please let me know and I will e-mail it to you.
What are my next steps to proceed? I want to compile the m4 package so I can proceed with flex.
I am running Ubuntu 10.10, and I would like to use my computer to share the internet connection from an ethernet port. For example, I would like to set up my computer as a wireless access point so I can create a network that other computers can connect to for internet.
Its a case of ".... wireless network connection active but still not internet connection .."I am using WEP - 128 key ... Works when I connect directly using ethernet cable ... but not wireless (pci and wireless router)
It is most certainly my fault but I am now without a sound volume control and it does not show up in the add to panel.What can I do here? Does your icon have code that that I can use or can I find the file somewhere and create a link? Alsa mixer works ok and nothing is muted and I have sound so as to play music. The Internet connection and the power connection icons also don't appear.
After upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04, I'm not able to make any connection to the internet with either my netbook through WiFi or my computer on wired LAN. I can, however, ping my Solaris machines and Macbook. How do I fix this?
I tried to install Xubuntu 10.10 Maverick as dual boot on my laptop. However when xubuntu is on, I can't find a way to connect to internet. When I try the 2 arrows on the up-right corner the option for wireless is deemed. I tried offline/online, that did not work either. when I click the firefox It says you are not connected.
I seem to have is trying to get the internet to work. I can go to ..... ect but when I try to run playonlinux it says you do not seem to be connected to the internet, please post if you have anything useful, as I said I am very new to linux so be as detailed as possible.
1 linksys router: gets the net from PPPOE and give the network DHCP. The router IP is 192.168.1.1. 1 windows laptop that work wireless and wired. 1 debian desktop that work wired and not working wireless. THe problem with the debian desktop is like this: I have a TP-Link TL-WN321G installed and found by lsusb command. I make a wireless connection WPA Personal (just like the router settings) it says i am connected to the wl network but no internet connection. the route command give me this:
I tryed with wicd who said that the connection is WEP (and it's not, it is setup to WPA on the router and the network-manager conncetion) and when i try to connect i get bad password. I tryed with network-manager uninstalled and no chance.
I have two linux laptops. Currently, I'm using both of them at work, side-by-side. Now the problem is, I'm connected to a wireless router, but the wireless only works on one of the laptops. So I'm stuck with one laptop that has no access to the internet. Both machines do, however, have working ethernet nic cards. So, I was wondering if I could use the laptop with the wireless connection to share the internet connection with my other linux machine and access the internet on both of them. Or as an alternative, just use the internet on the machine without wireless and be able to switch back and forth, that would increase my productivity like 30 fold.
OpenSuse 11.4 Asus Netbook 1000H Following other members in the forums I have installed Opensuse 11.4 on the Netbook. In the early days Ubuntu Netbook Remix worked well for me. But this has been discarded, and the "one size fits all" Ubuntu had become slow and cumbersome. So..... onto my post. Opensuse is working well. The install went beautifully.
It detected the Wireless Internet and I am able to get on line. I also need to share the Internet connection to a desktop. This is done via a small network switch. Thus far I cannot do this. I tried to use ifup to configure a static ip but this busted my Wireless configuration. I went back to knetwork manager. Then I tried to set up the wired network using knetwork manager and under IPV4 "share" the connection. But this blanks out any possiblity of a static address and substitutes dhcp. My desktop cannot ping the this dhcp address. Ubuntu had this thing called Firestarter? - from memory. This configured the system to sharing the network.
I have the "Work Offline" problem: when I boot up, the icon on the toolbar tells me I have "No network connection". This is not quite true, since I can access the first page of any website - only subsequent pages are inaccessible. I get a message saying that Firefox is offline. However, when I uncheck "Work Offline" in the File menu, it makes no difference to this behavior.
The problem is on my Ubuntu Dell desktop, which is connected to the internet with cable broadband via a D-Link router (wired connection). It has worked fine up till now. I use Ubuntu 10.04 and Firefox 3.6.11. I am writing this on my Ubuntu Dell laptop which is wired to the same router, so I assume the problem is not the router. I have tried various strategies suggested in threads on these forums, including editing about:config, changing "allow" to "deny" in some lines of /etc/dbus-1/system.d/NetworkManager.conf and changing from Automatic (DHCP) to Automatic (DHCP) Addresses only, but no luck so far. The contents of ifconfig are:
I need to setup an Ubuntu Server to handle backups over the network (probably rsync over ssh). That server will then transfer the backup data offsite over a secondary external data line.How can I configure the ethernet interfaces to handle such a scenario?
I got a dsl broadband connection....I have dual booting on my lappy(Windows7 and ubuntu 9.10)....my problem is i cannot set up the internet connection in ubuntu while i am using the connection in windows7....I am a total newbie in linux
I turned on my computer today and was unable to access the wireless, I tried to use etho but no luck either. I'm currently running 10.04 and haven't installed any updates or done anything out of the ordinary. I tried removing the internet connection from the network manager and then re adding it, but nothing working :/
Can I install Ubuntu Studio 9.10, Ubuntu 9.10 or Kubuntu 9.10 Live CD/DVD on a computer without internet connection? becouse I build computer for ubuntu professional photography only Data like external HD
I just changed my wireless connection over to wired and my computer claims it's connected but when I try to open and webpage (or even ping) it can't connect.
Keep in mind I am plugged directly into the router. Also I'm not sure if this is helpful but, I did have connection sharing for my xbox when I had wireless. I'm typing this on windows 7 which is driving me further into insanity by the minute.
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 alongwith Linux Mint & Windows XP. A friend of mine who has the same computer configuration & same hardware is planning to install Ubuntu 10.04. But he'll not be having internet connection at that place. So I was thinking of helping him by giving a CD which will be having all the required software on that which I have installed in my ubuntu 10.04. So that when he installs Ubuntu he just need to put the CD. So is there someway thru which we can put our installed programs on the CD so that we can use them again when we don't have internet connection? Like APT on CD...
Tried to search for this but must not be using the right terminology. Anyway, last week did a clean install of Lucid in a triple boot alongside Hardy & XP. Loving everything about Lucid--boot times, user-friendliness, tweak ability, &c. But I fired it up this morning and no internet. Where to start looking?
