  1. [kde] Akonadi refuses to start on KDE 4.6.0

    Akonadi refuses to start on KDE 4.6.0 installed from the kubuntu-backports PPA on Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, preventing me from using KMail. Here is the full error output:

  2. [ubuntu] Re: Updating network manager in 8.04 Hardy

    Run
    gksudo software-properties-gtk and make sure you have the universe repository enabled. Then run

    sudo apt-get update
    and try installing again.
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Endless loop after shutting down with Windos volume still mounted

    First I would try to create a new user account on the Linux machine and see if you can access the share the usual graphical way that way.
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Endless loop after shutting down with Windos volume still mounted

    Make sure the capitalization matches exactly that of the file share and try again. Apparently capitalization matters sometimes and causes the unhelpful DFS error.
  5. [xubuntu] Re: Xubuntu 10.10 internet doesn't work

    Try using the official STA driver from Broadcom instead. To install it, run this command on a terminal:

    sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source

    Then, disable the b43 driver and activate the...
  6. [ubuntu] Re: download speed suddenly slow - 1.00 mbps

    Okay, I looked a little deeper and Lucid doesn't have an updated Ethernet drivers package, while Maverick does. Which is odd because Lucid has every other updated drivers package Maverick does. My...
  7. [ubuntu] Re: Performace issue, Ubuntu 10.10 Broadcom BCM4312

    Have you tried using the b43 driver?

    To install and activate it:

    sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-lpphy-installer
    sudo modprobe -r wl
    sudo modprobe b43

    If that works better, disable the...

    [ubuntu] Re: Firefox times out finding servers.

    Connection timed out. That means your computer is losing the ability to make sustained communications.

    But since switching plugins seemed to help, we'll work that angle before reverting to...

    Re: Internet problem on Eee900

    If you just want basic Nautilus mounting you can just go to Places > Connect to Server and mount any SFTP directory you can get with FileZilla.

    If you want good old-fashioned command-line folder...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Networking my Ubuntu desktop, Mac Laptop, printer, and external HD

    Does the Mac ask for a username and password when connecting to the file share?

    As for the printer, try this:
    Open Print & Fax in System Preferences.
    Click the + to add a new printer.
    Choose...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Performace issue, Ubuntu 10.10 Broadcom BCM4312

    Does the wireless network not show up at all for awhile, or does it just connect really slowly?

    I experience the former behavior with my Broadcom device. You can get around it by choosing Connect...
  13. [ubuntu] Re: Not finding my wireless mybook storage device

    The fact that your device is wireless does not contribute to your particular problem. You could very well experience the same problem with a similar wired device. NAS stands for network attached...

    Okay, I'm going to start by explaining the technical details about your particular problem, because it is fairly bizarre, and actually appears to be a potential security vulnerability. This is not...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Asus USB-N10 NIC linux drivers not working

    Many wireless cards need some programming (called "firmware") loaded into them to work. For reasons unknown, Ubuntu didn't include the firmware for that particular card it in the directory it needed...
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Wireless Networks "device not ready"

    It means you need to copy the RT2860STA.dat file from the driver folder to that folder on your hard drive.

    Yeah. Reboot and see if it's any better. If not you will need to try mathia's solution.

    [ubuntu] Re: Firefox times out finding servers.

    You can disable and enable plugins at will in Tools > Add-Ons in Firefox. No need to uninstall them.

    That doesn't help you much though, because they'll still kill your Internet when you try to...

    Re: Internet problem on Eee900

    Yes. Driver's are deeply integrated into the Linux kernel so it's hard to say what was going on where.

    I'm glad we finally found a way to fix it, though. This is the first instance I'm aware...

    [ubuntu] Re: Wireless wont work (part 2)

    There are problems with the built-in kernel driver for Ralink cards. Installing the official one I linked to might help.

  22. [ubuntu] Re: download speed suddenly slow - 1.00 mbps

    Sorry about the confusion. I also missed one error, which was probably the biggie. To make things easier this time, just replace the whole kit and caboodle with this:

  24. [ubuntu] Re: Performace issue, Ubuntu 10.10 Broadcom BCM4312

    There are known problems with kernel version linux-image-2.6.35-24-generic and Broadcom devices (though usually they just don't work at all). You might try kernel linux-image-2.6.35-23-generic.
