I'm an ex-Kubuntu user trying to get over to Mint KDE. I'm having trouble with apps connecting to the Internet. Environment is standard wired Ethernet, 100 Mbit, static LAN. no wireless. Machine is an older Intel P4 CPU installed in an Intel board. Mint 32 bit ver. 12 KDE installed just fine. I removed the KDE Network Manager because I've had much trouble with same in the past. All I need is a very simple static connection to a standard wired Ethernet LAN.
eth0 is fully functional and I can ping anywhere on the internet from Konsole. Network related listings are as follows -
Code: Select all
/etc/network/interfaces (created with Kate) auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 192.168.0.112 netmask 255.255.255.0 gateway 192.168.0.1 /etc/resolv.conf (created with Kate) # Generated by xxx-x 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168 ********** From Konsole xx-xxdesktop ~ # dmesg| grep eth [ 1.735379] e100 0000:06:08.0: eth0: addr 0xff500000, irq 20, MAC addr 00:13:20:b2:45:49 [ 17.109228] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready [ 17.112163] e100 0000:06:08.0: eth0: NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex [ 17.112551] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready [ 27.840008] eth0: no IPv6 routers present [ 3280.845785] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready [ 3280.848162] e100 0000:06:08.0: eth0: NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex [ 3280.848569] ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready [ 3291.280009] eth0: no IPv6 routers present
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart returns a message that the command is depreciated
konsole, of course, works fine. Nothing else does.
Everything I've looked at appears identical to a working static Kubuntu machine.
Do I need to reinstall Network Manager or do a fresh install to get a static connection working?
Any help much appreciated.
