Hi Thanks. The first command with 'mv' worked well but with the second I have a failure message:

$ sudo echo 'nameserver 8.8.8.8' > /etc/resolv.conf
bash: /etc/resolv.conf: Permission denied

In the folder 'etc', there is no file called 'resolv.conf' but there is a folder called 'resolvconf'. Inside are the following folders:

- resolv.conf.d   (made of 4 files: base, head, original, tail)

- update.d

There is also this file: interface-order





A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

OK, let's correct that so you have permissions. The first command creates the file, the second writes the line.

sudo touch /etc/resolv.conf
sudo echo 'nameserver 8.8.8.8' >> /etc/resolv.conf

Don't touch the other folders there. Adding googles nameserver is temporarily.

Thanks. I tried to write the command echo but the permission was still denied. So I open with epad and wrote 'nameserver 8.8.8.8'. I restart the computer but it still doesn't work.

I am wondering if we should change the files in the folder "resolv.conf.d" (post #21). All of these files are empty (or commented) exept the file 'original'. The content of this file is :

nameserver 10.0.2.3

I could add in this file the follwoing:

nameserver 8.8.8.8

What do you think?   Thanks

Correction of post 21: the 4 files are in /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d

The change proposed above in the file 'original' doesn't bring anything.

 

@Charles: From the screenshot of post #17, I am not sure if we can conclude that the computer is connected to the router. I took this screenshot just after clicking on the router Livebox. At that time, the computer was trying to set the connection. 10 seconds after this attempt, the nm shows again that there is no connection to the router

 

Thanks for your help.

In resolv.conf you should not have 'quotes' only the text /numbers itself.:

nameserver 8.8.8.8

Don't forget to save the file. This will only work when you opened epad with sudo.

Please don't change files in resolvconf.d, it won't help.

 

Reading that your picture was a bit missleading as your connection was not made after all, so we are back to the original problem. Please move back the original resolv.conf file

sudo mv /etc/resolv.conf.old /etc/resolv.conf

Do you still have wicd AND NetworkManager installed?

 

I'm puzzled right now.

Charles, I understand that you are puzzled. Unfortunately I have not access to my old laptop for few days. I have not installed Wicd because there was a conflict of Daemon. I keep you informed when I will try on my old laptop (BL 3.2.1 Legacy). Thanks for help

Hi, I have installed again BL 3.2.1 Legacy to have a clear basis of my configuration. As before, when I click on the network icon in the bottom rigt ( without any wire connected) I see my box. I clicked on it and record the key of the internet box. After the computer tries to connect to the Wifi but it doesn't work. I have made a wifi check with no ethernet wire connected:

For grins, what happens when you use nmcli to connect to your preferred wifi?

Birdmun, I don't know if the question was for me.

With "nmcli device wifi list" I see my livebox (SSIB, BSSID, Mode, Freq, Rate, Signal, Security, Active)

I tried this command but it failed:

$nmcli device wifi connect 'Livebox-xxxx' password xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

After 1 min around, I have this message:

Error: Connection activation failed: (53) The Wi-Fi network could not be found.

If I tip the wrong password, I have the same error message. If I tip the wrong SSID, I have this error message:

 "No network with SSID 'Livexxxx' found.

There are also some wifi hotpots with no security. When I try to connect, I get the first error message: The wifi network could not be found.

Thanks for your help

Can you provide the outcome of

dpkg -l network-manager*

Please use your terminal window at maximum size to get the columns wider for more info.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

You should be able to select /specify the MAC address with the drop down similar to this image here Vhdh8xu.jpg?1 since the atheros device was detected


Unsolicited advice for learning linux, that won't cost you anything

Hereafter the outcome asked:

@Doomguy: yes I can select/specify the MAC adress with the same interface as yours.

Can you run (use your cable connection of course)

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Please pay attention to the package network-manager and the plugins, because I am at version 1.2.6 on my box. That might make a difference.

Reboot and try connecting again without cable.

Not sure this brings something as I am on Bodhi 4 and you on 3, different repos.

I run the update and upgrade above. I catch the following lines: 

Setting up update-manager-core (1:0.196.24) ...
Setting up libnm-glib-vpn1 (0.9.8.8-0ubuntu7.3) ...
Setting up libnm-gtk0 (0.9.8.8-0ubuntu4.5) ...
Setting up network-manager-gnome (0.9.8.8-0ubuntu4.5) ...

I try to connect without cable but it doesn't bring anything. I run again the command "dpkg -l network-manager*

 " with the star at the end. I forgot to add this star as request by Charles in post #30  :

@Charles, I notice his(?) base system seems to be Ubuntu 14.04. That would make him(?) running 3.2.1 at the latest, correct? Could that be why your version numbers are different?

@birdmun, yep, he is using 3.2.1. But I had hoped there was a backported new version in 14.04 that could have made a difference as the problem seems to be with the network manager. I have no idea if using wicd would be better in this case. But that would involve removing network-manager as they conflict. No experience with wicd myself, have you? Need to try it myself in a VM, but then I don't have wifi as that uses a fake cable connection.

I have used wicd before, but, I believe it was with Ubuntu and possibly before the birth of bodhi. Synaptic package manager made/makes things pretty easy to (un)install. Back when I used it, it wasn't really alien in usage compared to NM.

OK. I installed Bodhi-321-legacy in VirtualMachine and installed wicd like this:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get autoremove # to get rid of unneeded stuff
sudo apt-get install wicd

Notice that this will remove the Network Manager. You will get a message to run autoremove but I suggest to not do that now. That will make it easier to reinstall Network Manager if needed. 

 

Reboot to have the wicd daemon run as it should.

 

Wicd does not provide a systray icon, but it has a menu entry under Internet. Using that gives you options for your Accesspoint and WPA key.

 

If this fails also there is another networking package called connman, might try that later.

 

Enjoy,

Charles.

Thanks for your help. The update and the autoremove work wel but I can not install wicd. I have this error message:

$ sudo apt-get wicd                                        

E: Invalid operation wicd

Sorry bout that sloppy command, should be:

Enjoy,
