Re: Wireless and bluetooth on Zotac ZBox AD12 with Mint Maya

Ok, now it's getting more interesting. I have wpasupplicant installed. Is it a totally different package to wpa_supplicant which is referred to in the wicd.log?

Re: mint 14 wirless password

Hi,

I'm in a similar situation with Mint Maya 13 running wicd. There's a page that describes the problem https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/540070 and if you're the person to dive in there and sort it, then let me know!

Re: Wireless and bluetooth on Zotac ZBox AD12 with Mint Maya

OK, so it only works on unencrypted wifi. Wicd needs some template written so that it doesn't get confused between passkey and preshared key and other things. wpa supplicant comes into it. At least i seems that more people have had this problem, many of the problems have been written about 3 years a...

Re: Wireless and bluetooth on Zotac ZBox AD12 with Mint Maya

We may have done it! The final piece of the puzzle was to locate a piece of software that scanned for wireless networks. The Mint Maya 13 install we downloaded only had NetworkManager which looked like it was working but plainly wasn't for wireless. On software manager I searched for network manager...

Re: Wireless and bluetooth on Zotac ZBox AD12 with Mint Maya

Still playing with this. Annoyed that I'bve lost the instruction on how to manually blacklist a driver so it would appear from running lspci -nnk | grep -iA2 net that I'm using ra2860 and not ra3290sta 03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Ralink corp.

Re: Loss of HDMI sound

I'm going to post this in the newbies section as I'm beginning to suspect that it's a really simple solution but as we're not familiar with Linux, we don't know where to look.

Re: Wireless and bluetooth on Zotac ZBox AD12 with Mint Maya

Playing with this problem still. On start-up I get the message "waiting for network configuration" and then "waiting up to 60 seconds more" before it puts up the desktop. If I do this with the ethernet cable disconnected, I have to go into Network Connections, and on the "wired" tab I can Add and go...

Re: Wireless and bluetooth on Zotac ZBox AD12 with Mint Maya

Thanks, I appreciate your response. As you say there was a windows driver and I've removed that. I then also deleted the wireless connection that I'd created. In the software that I have available with this install I can't find anything that can detect the router. I have just checked that the broadc...

Loss of HDMI sound

We're running Mint 13 Maya on a Zotac ZBox Nano AD12 connected to a TV by HDMI cable. It works unless you turn the TV off or switch source on the TV while the computer is running. When you turn the TV back on or flick back to HMDI connection as a source, there is no sound. A reboot sorts it out. Any...

Wireless and bluetooth on Zotac ZBox AD12 with Mint Maya

I'm trying to connect using wifi but have got pretty lost. Searching this forum for Zbox Nano AD12 says that all terms are ignored as they're too common! Fair enough, so I'm posting my own topic. It's taken quite a while to get the wireless card recognised (still can't get the bluetooth recognised) ...
