wireless connection wordks half


Hi,

I'm using Ubuntu Dapper on my macG4.The wireless connection works fine, but can only be made by using the terminal and entering "su wlassistant" This file in /usr/bin/ is only accessible for root. I think the problem is solved, if I could change the permission rights.

Hi h.ornstein,

welcome to LQ.org. To change this file to the usual rights that the files in /usr/bin have, do as root in a terminal:

Code:
chown root:root /usr/bin/wlassistant
chmod 755 /usr/bin/wlassistant
