Re: Seagate External Hard Drive and any flash drive not moun

Thanks for the suggestions. My friend here ended up fixing the problem by installing autofs. So, as of now, it appears SOLVED.

Seagate External Hard Drive and any flash drive not mounting

Hello, I have been using a Seagate Backup Plus 1 TB external hard drive for a few months, and it has mounted fine. I just updated after not doing so for a while. Now, it won't mount, won't even show up that it is connected; nor will any of my flash drives, which all mount fine on other computers. I'...

Re: Wireless/Network Manager issues; Broadcom BCM4311 Driver

Hello again, I want to apologize for being "smart-alecky". I have gone and removed the Windows driver (never tried installing it but it was there; does that have anything to do with dual boot?), but how exactly do I deactivate the STA driver? And how do I get Network Manager to start with startup, s...

Re: Wireless/Network Manager issues; Broadcom BCM4311 Driver

Thank you for your suggestion.

However, my sister already used modprobe b43 when setting it up and it did get the wireless working while I was in the US. So it doesn't seem (at least to me) as though that is the issue this time.

Re: Wireless/Network Manager issues; Broadcom BCM4311 Driver

Hi, Thanks for the suggections. Looked at Additional Drivers, but the only one listed is Broadcom STA Wireles Driver, and it's "activated but not in use". I put in the two commands, and after the install command it responded "bcmwl-kernel-source is already the newest version." Doesn't seem like eith...

Wireless/Network Manager issues; Broadcom BCM4311 Driver

Hi, my name is Derek. August 15th I bought a Dell Latitude D620 with Windows Vista Business installed on it. My sister installed Linux Mint 13 (Maya) with Mate desktop, making it dual boot. At first, the wireless card was not working in Mint, but with IRC help on spotchat, she tried “modprobe b43”, ...
