I've been a Linux/Ubuntu user/enthusiast since May of 2007. I've been on Ubuntuforums for almost as long. Looking forward to working with another diverse community of users.

Also, instead of lsusb | grep network you might try lsusb | grep -i network and/or sudo lshw | grep -i networkto get a quick list of network hardware.

@Odysseus, If you run sudo lshw -html > systemspecs.html it will generate an HTML file with your system's hardware info. Just open it with firefox and scroll through for a summary look at your available hardware. Networking hardware is usually near the bottom.

comment Can not connect to my wifi
It would also be good to include which release (version) of Ubuntu are you using. The answer for 12.04 and earlier differs from 13.10 for example.

comment 12.04 computers can't “see” each other or 10.04 computer, but not vice-versa
If that's the case, install SAMBA on the 12's.

comment 12.04 computers can't “see” each other or 10.04 computer, but not vice-versa
I'm not sure of the exact issue, but if you install nmap on the 10.04, you could run it to check the available services on the PC's. The command to run nmap is nmap 127.0.0.1 to test the 10.04 PC and then substitute the ip address of the 12.04 machines. This will tell you what services are running on each machine. My guess is that you'll find SMB (SAMBA) services running on the 10.04 that aren't running the 12's.

comment HP ProLiant DL360 G4p with 13.10 server has network issues
(FYI)Generally when asking for more information on a question it's best to do so in a comment rather than an answer.

comment Ubuntu 13.10 Login Credentials Again
First, your username for the login is probably just 'eric'. Also, are you sure you're pressing [ctrl + alt + arrow key]? (Not another key) Have you made any changes to your keyboard layout? Have you tested your keyboard layout?

comment Impossible to ping when activating second network card
In the second part (below the line), did you go into the /etc/network/interfaces file and add the metric 0 and metric 1 lines? If you don't add those lines, I'm pretty sure doing the first part (above the line) is only a temporary fix.

comment Impossible to ping when activating second network card
You can use that command, but sudo reboot is just as simple. I would have to look at the run levels again to see if there is any difference.

I suppose this answer assumes you're using a Linux based OS...

comment No wireless internet after upgrading to 13.10
If you put in the IP address for your router, does it show you the web interface? (Can you access local pages?)

comment Remote login onto server and let someone else see your shell?
That only shows what processes are running. Not what is being typed.

comment Webmin no route to host
Because another user had a strong opinion about the use of webmin as an administrative tool.

comment dod cac reader setup ubuntu 12.04
I haven't done anything special. From a fresh install, I followed the steps I laid out at askubuntu.com/questions/285543/… . Take a look at it and see if you're missing a step. Also, once you receive an error message you need to close firefox before you try again, or you'll just keep getting an error. If it will allow you to chose a cert, make sure you select the "e-mail" cert or it will fail.

If geirha's answer solved your problem, don't for get to "accept" the answer. +25 points to geirha, +2 to you.

comment Crontab not running a script
Ok. Sorry I think we may have gotten off on a rabbit trail. Since, your /home/perforce/logs/bkp.log is listing errors the script is running. It just pukes at p4. Did you edit the script to point to /usr/local/bin/p4 as suggested by Vladimir?

Could you add the results of crontab -l ?

comment Crontab not running a script
Also the user has to be allowed to run cron. Is "perforce" allowed to run cron jobs?

comment Crontab not running a script
From dan08 below: "If you use crontab -e then the file will run as whatever user you were logged in as. sudo crontab -e would cause it to be run as root." Cron runs from crontab based on the owner of that crontab.

comment Is it ok to run more than one antivirus program?
My favorite thing about Vista is that it introduced me to Ubuntu. :)
