Re: [UnSolved]Bluetooth turns itself on and disconnects WiFi

Received my cheap X61 and so far have not had a single problem. No fixes needed whatsoever. I do not know if this is because the problem machine is an X61s though. WiFi is stable, for now. If anything goes haywire I will update.

Re: [solved] how to make USB stick writeable

No problem. It's just a matter of finding the right place and then copy and pasting as shown. A two minute job. Really.

Re: how to make USB stick writeable

by pyrus » Wed Jan 02, 2013 7:03 pm I had the same problem with various types of USB memory sticks on Mint 13 Maya (MATE edition). I actually had two problems: a) One of my sticks (that I had copied from the Mint ISO) was formatted as an ISO-9660 (CD) format filesystem b) Other sticks were mounted ...

Re: Using PGP with emails (a refresher, please?)

Claws Mail is my choice and the Gnupg plugins. Very easy to use and much lighter and more efficient than Thunderbird.

Re: [UnSolved]Bluetooth turns itself on and disconnects WiFi

After my experiences with Linux, though admittedly short in length, my first thoughts are this OS is unstable. It can only be used "reliably" via Ethernet. With that in mind it can be used instead of Windows, but WiFi and Bluetooth is a minefield of frustration and destruction. To replace ...

Re: [UnSolved]Bluetooth turns itself on and disconnects WiFi

My attempt at blocking Bluetooth by removing files worked up until a few minutes ago when the update manager suggested two updates. I installed and during the installation Bluetooth activated.

Re: [UnSolved]Bluetooth turns itself on and disconnects WiFi

Does hciconfig -a show any results when bluetooth activates? I am stumped as to why bluetooth can activate with the modules blacklisted. The next time bluetooth activates, after getting the results I ask for, try bluetoothctl power off I wouldn't be surprised if bluetoothctl shows no devices and ju...

Re: [UnSolved]Bluetooth turns itself on and disconnects WiFi

I will have to try that another time. I have just resorted to major surgery and surgically removed the four files in /etc/bluetooth So far, Bluetooth has remained inactive with no negative consequences. I will post if anything goes wrong or activation occurs. I am in the final mental stages of prepa...

Re: [UnSolved]Bluetooth turns itself on and disconnects WiFi

Just uninstalled Libre Office and Bluetooth was invoked during the uninstall and my WiFi connection was destroyed. There must be a way to completely block it off. Whatever I do it always finds a way to activate. It's like my laptop has HIV or something.

The only mention of Bluetooth in startup is "Bluetooth OBEX Agent" and that's been unticked for a while.

And again. I may have to reinstall the OS at this rate. It is becoming more frequent.

Re: [UnSolved]Bluetooth turns itself on and disconnects WiFi

It just happened again. I upgraded Libre and FileZilla using unofficial methods and was warned it may cause problems. I wonder if that is the cause of the return of this annoying problem. I do not use Bluetooth and would rather not have it at all. It is too problematic.

Code: Select all

Can't open HCI socket.: Address family not supported by protocol
 


Just my luck. On a brighter note the Bluetooth event only happened once.

Re: [Solved]invalid setting ipv4 settings:ipv4.routes:1.route cannot be a default route

A simple fix. I removed the 0.0.0.0's, left it blank, from the Routes config and saved. Voila, a connection using OpenVpn to Madrid using an imported settings file.

Re: [UnSolved]Bluetooth turns itself on and disconnects WiFi

The problem has 'just' returned, quite a while after I thought the fix was in. Bluetooth popped up and destroyed my WiFi connection.

Re: How to update Libre

LO 5.3.x will most likely never appear in the official repositories. So you have either to add a matching PPA or download the file and install it. sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade A very dangerous advice, as it circumvents the safety of the level system of the update manager...

Re: Wine and Amlogic's USB Burning Tool

Well, Wine is supported in the sense it's in the repo, but it's not part of the default installation. I'm in the process of learning Wine, have registered at WineHQ and so was able to run a search. The only thing which came up was an old forum thread , at which point (2011) it didn't work. More dis...
