  1. [SOLVED] 13.10, NVIDIA, low res, and black screen after logon

    I've been running 12.10 for the longest time and was having what appeared to be video problems so opted to switch to NVIDIA drivers. Problems persisted so I upgraded to 13.04 but that didn't solve...
  2. [ubuntu] Re: 12.10 latest updates black screen at logon and beyond

    This happened to me again this morning.
  3. [ubuntu] Re: 12.10 latest updates black screen at logon and beyond

    Thanks for that link. I did come across that in my googling but since that issue is on first boot after install and mine up until now has been an intermittent issue I am reluctant to try it.

  4. [ubuntu] Re: 12.10 latest updates black screen at logon and beyond

    Over 70 views and nobody has any advice? Would it help if I provided the syslog?
  5. [ubuntu] 12.10 latest updates black screen at logon and beyond

    Now and then, my HP EliteBook 8540w laptop won't show the Fallback DE on boot. Purple flashes briefly, then the drumbeat for logon sounds, mouse pointer is all I see on a black screen. I can blindly...
  6. Re: Cannot add HP Photosmart-C3100 series printer

    I tried running sudo hp-setup but it ended in an error and the test print at the end would not print. Thought it might have something with how I setup the USB on the JetDirect but every other option...
  7. Re: Cannot add HP Photosmart-C3100 series printer

    Would details of the print server help?

    HP JetDirect: J6035G
    Firmware Version: M.25.54

    I think Windows 7 is using port 9100 printing. USB set to unidirectional.
  8. Cannot add HP Photosmart-C3100 series printer

    Printer is connected to the network with HP JetDirect external unit. Ubuntu discovers it but fails to add.

    The following is in syslog. Is there another place I should also look?

    Re: video problem with google chrome

    Recent updates on the 6510b resolved this yellow snow problem.
  10. [ubuntu] Re: Administrator right to connect to wireless on 12.10

    I decided to just leave the /home/* folder the same and just renamed the account. When I changed the password in "Users and Groups" the keyring ended up being out of sync.

    I found the tread...
  11. [ubuntu] Re: Administrator right to connect to wireless on 12.10

    Well... it looks like CorpIT is putting a kybosh on my original plan. Last I heard, I'm supposed to dispose of them, not just lessen the Microsoft and other license costs.

    Still, I hate to toss...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Administrator right to connect to wireless on 12.10

    BTW, thanks for sticking with me on this. If I am slow to provide answers it's because CorpIT does not want me to work on this on company time so I'm relegated to do this on my breaks or after hours.

    mportaluser@HP-Compaq-nc6320:~$ id mportaluser
    uid=1001(mportaluser) gid=1001(mportaluser) groups=1001(mportaluser),109(netdev),119(nopasswdlogin)
    mportaluser@HP-Compaq-nc6320:~$
  14. [ubuntu] Re: Administrator right to connect to wireless on 12.10

    Confirmed that the name is in fact mportaluser.
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Administrator right to connect to wireless on 12.10

    The command did not throw an error so I think I got the name right. If I repeat the command then it says that mportaluser is already added. None the less, I will run the sanity checks tomorrow.
  16. [ubuntu] Re: Administrator right to connect to wireless on 12.10

    The user without privilege that I setup is mPortal User so I believe the shortname mportaluser is what I would use with the above command.

    sudo adduser mportaluser netdev
    Unfortunately that did...
  17. [ubuntu] Re: Administrator right to connect to wireless on 12.10

    I don't want workarounds. I don't want to elevate a user to be able to make 'Available to all users'.

    Is this issue a regression that started with 12.04? Should I consider an older version? ...
  18. [ubuntu] Re: Administrator right to connect to wireless on 12.10

    So... nobody knows? Is this a problem only in 12.10? I don't understand how this could go unresolved for so long if that is the case.

    Should I give up on 12.10 and try 12.04? Can anyone say if...
  19. [ubuntu] Re: Administrator right to connect to wireless on 12.10

    The particular wireless SSID that my non-admin user wants to connect to is not on the list because it has never been connected to. The laptop is back in my office and the SSID is at my user's house....
  20. [ubuntu] Re: Administrator right to connect to wireless on 12.10

    No, I don't want a user to make global settings. That would need more rights than they have.
  21. [ubuntu] Administrator right to connect to wireless on 12.10

    I setup a user that doesn't have administrator rights on a laptop. When that user tries to connect to a wireless network, they get prompted for my password. How can they connect to a wireless...

    I have installed Ubuntu onto several laptops using the exact same steps so except for hardware specific differences, they all have essentially the same software and the same config.

    OK, got back at the 6510b today... didn't install anything else except Ubuntu and Chrome this time. No backports... no updates.

    It has the same snow as the other 6510b so it's something specific...

    Re: video problem with google chrome

    So much for the 64 bit theory. I installed the 64 bit version on another HP laptop, this time an EliteBook 8540w and it is on its best behaviour.

    On Friday I got anther 6510b back that is...
  25. [ubuntu] Re: Display flickers after lid close and switch to battery

    So... no takers? Too easy or too hard?

    If not for me, then will you do it for the Planet? If I can't make these laptops usable they will end up in the waste bin.
