    Giver don't see other computer

    I have installed giver on both PC's with ubuntu, I have lunched giver on them but giver shows only computer on which he is installed
    My LAN is well configured so network is not the problem...

    I got avahi-autoipd, avahi-daemon, avahi-dbg, avahi-utils and few libavahi packages.
    I haven't installed any of those, they were installed with system I guess
    There's no avahi process running, so what I have to do now?

    Code:
    sudo sh /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon start
    should be enough

    to make it run everytime you boot, you need to make it executable. System will handle the rest. (At least that's how is supposed to be with bsdinit, I don't know if it still works this way with ubuntu)
    Code:
    chmod +x /etc/init.d/avahi-daemon

    It didn't work in my case...
    One computer can see only itself (which is strange) and the other one doesn't see the first one (and even itself - which is ok ). ping and ssh between the two are ok.
    Any ideas?

    Re: Giver don't see other computer

    I got a similar problem.

    Got giver installed on 2 ubuntu computers, one running 8.10 and one 9.04.

    The 8.10 can see both the 9.04 and itself, but the 9.04 can only see the 9.04 (which is kind of useless)

    8.10 can start to send files (drag and drop a file) to the 9.04 but the 9.04 never gets any kind of notification of a file being sent.

    I tried the avahi-daemon thingy in this thread but it didn't help.

    Anyone got a solution?
