    You noticed that, too? Here's something to try (hold Alt and hit F2 to bring up the Run prompt, then do this):

    Code:
    xterm -e 'ifconfig > ~/Desktop/lanconn.log'
    Please post the contents of the lanconn.log file just created on your desktop.

    Re: What happens if I remove Python 2.5?

    Okay, what is displayed if you open a Terminal and type in:
    Code:
    ifconfig | grep "inet addr"
    (The | is the bar achieved by holding Shift and hitting backslash '\' on a QWERTY keyboard; ignore the 127.0.0.1 line, the important part here is that you get a result besides that one.)

    From the sounds of what you're describing (no GUI, that is to say CLI only) you can just directly type that code at the top of this post.

    Can't help thinking that a complete re-install is the way to go here.

    I do hope you backed up everything of value (or you have a seperate /home partition).
    Tony - Happy to try to help.
    Unless otherwise stated - all code posted by me is untested. Remember to Mark the Thread as Solved.

    Yeah, but if we can get that system back up, he won't have to worry about the logistics of offloading any files not on a separate partition.

    Plug your ADSL router into your computer through an Ethernet cable. The Network Manager program that connects your wireless card runs on Python.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    Don't remove python.

    You can do so, but a ******** of programs won't work any more.
