SD / MMC interface not seeing any cards...
 
Stick an SD / MMC card into the port, and the laptop doesn't read the card (new Dell l/top).

Leave the card in the camera, link by USB, and the camera is ID'd, and card / photos read properly.

What's the command to see if the interface is seen?


ed.
lots of info returned in dmesg - do I need to post it all?
saw no 'relevent info in lspci, or lsusb...
lshw???

Model of the hardware and what distro you're using would be helpful.

Open a terminal and run the command
Code:

tail -f /var/log/messages
Then plug in the SD-card and post the messages that are appearing new in the terminal.

Thanks there Sir...

NO response in CLI with 2 different SD cards.

Hardware function confirmed positive in Windows environment...

Thread moved, but no more ideas?

I told ubuntuforum guys that they did too much policing, and not enough guessing at help.

Policing is easier, I guess...

bumpin'; can't give up hope on Linux...

(or Canonical, with no sound, wireless, etc., all in the same machine)

May be it helps if we see more info:
- distro and version
- hardware (model/manufacturer)
- output of lspci/lsusb

OK, from what I can see you run Ubuntu 10.04 and the lspci program has no proper descriptions for your hardware. This usually means that the hardware you use is newer than that particular version of Ubuntu and therefore simply may miss the necessary drivers to get all your hardware working. I would recommend to try it with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS or Ubuntu 12.10.
A test with a Live-CD/DVD/USB should be sufficient to see if the cardreader is working in those newer versions.

buccaneere 11-05-2012 09:07 PM

12.04 live environment recognizes SD / MMC card.

I don't know where wireless is, to test (fail in 10.04, with Broadcom 4365) (hardwire connection now).

I think I heard sound as X-Server started (fail in 10.04).

Unity is abject fail.

TobiSGD 11-06-2012 04:29 AM

For the Broadcom card you will have to install proprietary drivers, which is pretty easy on Ubuntu (and derivatives) using the additional drivers program. If you don't like Unity you can of course also try Kubuntu (KDE), Xubuntu (XFCE), Lubuntu (LXDE) or the Gnome 3 edition of Ubuntu. Alternatively you can try Mint with MATE or Cinnamon, which are designed to resemble the Gnome 2 desktop.
