I recently re installed Ubuntu using the mini.iso, but much to my dismay the mini.iso is not configured the same way as the Ubuntu desktop ISO some "problems" I'm facing such as:
- An Installation using the regular Ubuntu CD recognizes my active network connections in Network Manager, Installing with the mini.iso gives me a working connection however no connections are "active" in Network Manager displaying the message "The system network services are not compatible with this version."
- In a regular Ubuntu install connecting an Android phone to the PC
mounts the phone's internal memory and sd card if present, Using the
mini.iso the phone is detected as it appears with the command
lsusbbut it's not mounted and can't be mounted.
- In the same regards using the phone to tether it's connection to the
PC via USB, the phone is connected to my (WiFi). In the regular Ubuntu
install the phone is recognized as a networking device and is used as
usb0, while in the mini.iso nothing happens, and trying to add the connection to
/etc/network/interfacesresults in the OS crashing.
Just to make sure It wasn't a matter of my user not having the correct permissions or a lack of "groups", I've checked with an Ubuntu VM and the groups are the same, the networking files are the same, and the packages (except those of
ubuntu-desktop such as Unity, Firefox, LibreOffice, and other non-essential software) are Installed in my PC, so what else is there to look for?.
I'm sure I'm missing something, and I'd prefer not to install Ubuntu again, using the regular cd.
How can I manage to get the same behaviour/configuration without reinstalling ?
