Re: dns resolution not working

Immediately after rebooting the Mint machine I ran the following commands. $ ll /etc | grep resolv.conf -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 65 Oct 31 11:45 resolv.conf $ cat /etc/resolv.conf # Generated by NetworkManager search telus nameserver 127.0.0.53 $ cat /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf [main] plug...

Re: dns resolution not working

I certainly appreciate your help in identifying a workaround to get things working for now. My interest in pursuing this further is to identify the root cause of the problem so that if it is an issue with systemd-resolved it can be fixed for myself and possibly others. And if it is an issue with the...

Re: update manager and apt

I'm using 19.2 but it must have gotten stuck in a state where it did not auto update for some reason.

Re: update manager and apt

I think I figured out what was causing a lot of the confusion. I posted two screenshots of Update Manager, one in the original post and another in my most recent post. In the first image Update Manager was indicating a kernel meta update of version 4.15.0-65.74 and apt was indicating a kernel meta u...

Re: update manager and apt

I just want to make sure I'm understanding this correctly. Update Manager and apt will both install the same kernel version, at least in this particular case, even though the version numbers are not the same? Which kernel version is it then 4.15.0-66.68 as indicated by apt or 4.15.0-65.74 as indicat...

Re: dns resolution not working

Now that the DNS issue is sorted out I tested the configuration after following your instructions to re-enable systemd-resolved but remove edns0 . And I got the same result as in the original post (ie. the same behaviour as shown here https://imgur.com/P7USAgJ ). So it would seem that the EDNS is no...

Re: dns resolution not working

I found the setting in the router to fix this configuration. DNS2 was set to pass the DNS from the WAN connection. I changed it to point to the gateway. My question was more about DNS priority though. Even though the router was setting DNS2 to an upstream DNS server shouldn't my computer use DNS1 (i...

Re: update manager and apt

So Update Manager is more than 'just' a front end but does it still use apt for managing packages behind the scenes? or dpkg? You said that Update Manager checks for a kernel meta package 'matching' the active kernel installed. What criteria is used for this matching? My current kernel version is 4....

Re: problems with glitchy graphics

After reverting back to the nouveau driver I selected the Intel GPU in the NVIDIA X Server Settings console and then reinstalled the NVIDIA driver and set it to use the NVIDIA GPU. I wanted to try some screen tearing tests to see if that what was causing the glitchy graphics I was experiencing. But ...

Re: dns resolution not working

Ok. So I did the following: $ sudo systemctl enable systemd-resolved $ sudo systemctl start systemd-resolved Removed dns=default from /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf $ sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager $ sudo rm /etc/resolv.conf $ echo nameserver 127.0.0.53 | sudo tee /etc/resolv.conf $ ...

update manager and apt

I was under the impression that the update manager is just a GUI interface for apt package manager. Is that incorrect? The reason I ask is apt is telling me all packages are up to date but update manager is telling me there is a kernel update. Or is update manager using apt but configured to look at...

I disabled systemd-resolved as instructed and now the name resolution seems to be working. $ ping debian PING debian.telus (192.168.1.100) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 192.168.1.100 (192.168.1.100): icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=15.7 ms A screenshot of the wireshark trace can be viewed here (wiresha...

Re: problems with glitchy graphics

Yup. That cleared up the issues with driver manager at least. And it seems nouveau is now the installed driver. $ inxi -Gx Graphics: Device-1: Intel 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics vendor: ASUSTeK driver: i915 v: kernel bus ID: 00:02.0 Device-2: NVIDIA GF108M [GeForce GT 635M] vendor: ASUSTeK driver...

Re: dns resolution not working

The mint machine is not being blocked. It is getting the DNS reply from the router. So now it has the IP address of debian. But it still complains that name is not known. When in fact it is known or should be from the reply. This, to me, indicates maybe an issue with the DNS resolution service itsel...

problems with glitchy graphics

I recently installed Linux Mint 19.2 Tina on my notebook. One of the first things I did after completing the installation is run the driver manager. Initially the driver manager showed the open-source driver as selected and indicated a recommended NVIDIA graphics driver to use so I selected it, appl...

dns resolution not working

I have a few different computers on my local network running different operating systems. Rather than maintain hosts files on all the machines I rely on the local router to resolve the hostnames to IP addresses. This works for all my local machines except for the computer running Linux Mint. For exa...

Re: Automate configuration of system settings

Yeah I kinda figured as much. So... how would I go about dissecting what controls what? For example: I would like to modify System Settings > Hardware > Sound > Sounds Tab > Sounds And I want to enable/disable certain system sounds (Starting Cinnamon, Leaving Cinnamon, etc) and set the desired sound...

Automate configuration of system settings

I would like to automate the customization of some of the system settings instead of using the GUI application. Is there a configuration file (or set of files) where I can adjust the system settings (ie. system sounds, visibility of desktop icons, etc)? Or is there a command line tool to adjust thes...
