Those with bluetooth or wifi on their machines will most likely enjoy using Remuco, an application to let you use your mobile phone as a remote control. Right now, Remuco can be used with the following media players:
ou may use any of the above mentioned applications on your Linux box but features with regards to control, information displayed, and browsing depend on which one of them you use. If you’re using Banshee, there are no browsing features available. But you could control the volume, skip to the next track (or go to the previous one), toggle …read more
So far, I haven’t had much troubles with the wireless network in the office when I am using Ubuntu Hardy Heron. I don’t get disconnected after 15-20 minutes of being online. It used to happen that way a lot and it was really so much trouble having to connect to the wireless network that often. Now that it seems to be much better, I also feel better about using the bcm43xx driver instead of using ndiswrapper to make the wireless networking happen.
That or I was experiencing a bad combination of things. Bad Broadcom driver, slow internet speeds, …read more
As much as there are ways to use the built-in wifi on my laptop. There’s fwcutter and ndiswrapper. Actually, my dilemma with it is the firmware. I still have to get it from the internet and I can’t because I have problems with my LAN port. I’d probably try that tomorrow though, when I get to the office where the cable is longer.
In any case, it’s a pain to get things working from time to time. Especially after our sys ad changed the Wifi network’s security protocol to WPA. It seems that …read more
Timelady gave me a lovely link for all you Asus EEE users out there. It’s a guide on configuring WPA on Xandros.
What does it involve?
Removing the WPA supplicant installed by default.
Installing WPA supplicant from the Debian repositories.
Installing MadWifi drivers.
Creating a new network configuration.
Making sure that you fix the network monitor icon.
The steps are all there and you just need to follow them one by one.
Hope that helps you with your wifi needs! All thanks to the people of the EEE User wiki and Timelady.
I saw this tip from one of the blogs on Planet Ubuntu:
* Create file /etc/init.d/ndiswrapper
o gksudo gedit /etc/init.d/ndiswrapper
* Add the text below, save and close
o #! /bin/sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides: ndiswrapper
I recently recorded a video over at The Linux Learning Station on using iwconfig, ifconfig, and dhclient to bring up a wireless network card. The process in the video is the process that I’ve always followed because, thankfully, both my PCMCIA cards are usually recognized by most distros.
My process basically involves setting the essid and WEP password on the card and then bringing it up. In order to ensure that it comes up every time I boot, I make a little script and use update-rc.d to put it in the proper init directories.
What I didn’t know was that I could …read more
