Question Network Manager missing some resources


I never used Linux before and I have decided to give it my best shot. I booted my Ubuntu 9.04 cd and it took a while to boot probably because it was running from the CD and not yet installed in my HD. It booted alright but the desktop greeted me with a note "MISSING RESOURCES". "The Network Manager could not find some required resources. It cannot continue." I had to click OK and the note disappeared. I had the impression that my trial with Ubuntu should have gone smoothly, but oops, I was wrong! Can somebody help me with my first obstacle? I connect to the internet through cable. I have lots of disk space to install Ubuntu if that is required to solve my problem. I also have a problem with music plug-ins but that comes later after I have familiarized myself a little bit with Linux. I am not giving up yet because with all the resources available free on the net, I believe Linux will be a better system than Windows.

Ubuntu 6.0.1?? if there is such a thing (sure it is not 6.06LTS?) which is three years old now. my first suggestion is to download the latest Ubuntu first and use that and see how you go from there. a lot has changed in three years, mainly for the better.

Network type in my PC

I use 2 systems for networking with my PCs, wired and wireless. My Device Manager list these as: SIS 900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter, and AT-WCP200G 802.11 Wireless Adapter. Thank you.

Device manager... As in Windows Device manager ?

Quote:
http://www.brownhat.org/sis900.html
The sis900 chipset can be used with different transceivers of different brands,
AT-WCP200G that looks like a card model number rather than a Wireless chipset.. nope not enough info to work with. The same model card can have multiple revisions each of them having a different chipset from a different manufacturer while the model number of the card doesn't change (annoying isn't it ? ) ..

So based on that info We still need the output of the command I requested, so we don't waste time troubleshooting the wrong thing or the wrong driver..
the output from Windows device manager is NOT accurate information.

I am really a newbie with the Linux system and I still don't have any idea how to execute the command lspci | grep -i network that will give me the output to show you. I am willing to learn how to do it but somebody has to guide this blind person to see the light. I really appreciate all this help I'm getting, it makes me feel very welcome in this group.

You must open a terminal window to do what farslayer suggested. You then copy and paste his line (lspci | grep -i network) into that terminal (not the brackets!).

one way to open a terminal is to look for its icon in the system or settings menu. Just have a browse through all the installed apps on your system and you will come across it eventually. this way you will start to get familiar with some of the names of software on your system. You use Ubuntu right? I use Kubuntu and Xubuntu and on the latter it is under 'applications -> accessories -> terminal' and on Kubuntu it is called 'konsole'.

use your intuition and copy and paste here the output of that command so farslayer can interpret it for you (and me..).

thanks

I finally found the terminal to put the command: lspci | grep -i network and the output was: Texas Instrument ACX 111 54Mbps Wireless interface. I hope this helps. Thanks.

Ubuntu page on setting up the driver for this chipset..
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi.../Driver/acx111



More info on the Driver..

http://acx100.sourceforge.net/

http://acx100.sourceforge.net/wiki/D...on_list/Ubuntu
Quote:
Ubuntu ships the ACX plain driver out of the box, even though it is not included in the mainline kernel. The driver is made available under the linux-image-`uname -r` package, and the firmware under the linux-restricted-modules-`uname -r` package.
