VSIDO News & Announcements / Re: The end of the VSIDO era

Hi VastOne

Just read this, I'm always way behind everything, so just dropped in to say that I will miss VSIDO greatly as I have enjoyed it. The only problems that I encountered were mostly of my own making. Please let me know what other version of Linux you would recommend. better still if you are involved with. I would also like to thank everyone involved with VSIDO for all their time and effort for making this distro so good. Sorry to see it go  :'(

Hi VastOne
Thanks for that. As for editing .fluxbox file it's probably way beyond my ability but I'll give it a go and see what happens

Hi VastOne
For some reason or other the editor isn't working and has'nt worked for me for a while. Is there a problem or do I have to install someting. I have done several updates since it stopped working without it being fixed

Hi VastOne
Yes my router/modem is provided by SKY.
I have only one WiFi card on my computer, the one that I  have just bought. the wired connection is built into the motherboard. The only other cards I have are a graphics card and an audio card.
here is my latest lspci output.

I don't know why both won't work at the same time but if both are connected neither of them works, I have to take the WiFi card out to get the wired one to connect to the internet.
No idea how to find out the WiFi name and password the other things use

Hi VastOne, PackRat
Yes there are several items connected to my WiFi.
There are Samsung phone ,two Samsung tablets and an iPhone 8 plus several other items when the grand children are here, all have no problem
My router is provided by SKY.
That is the screen I get when I run Ceni. the only difference is when I have the WiFi card in I get wlp2s0 in place of enp2s15

Hi PackRat

No couldn't set it up as it wouldn't connect. I have an idea what the router name and password are but it won't let me set them. That s to say I dont know what to do or find out where I can ediit them.
Iwconfig does find the card and come up with a load of info but I haven't found where I can edit them or how to

Hi VastOne

First of all I have been doing loads of reading about Ceni and am completely baffled as what the how to says and snap shots show are the same as what I get when I launch it
Right etc/network/interfaces
Code: [Select]
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
allow-hotplug eth0

allow-hotplug enp2s15



# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet dhcp

iface enp2s15 inet dhcp

# iface wlp1s0 init dhcp

Ceni

I hashed out the wlp2s0 to get onto the net, although I don't know if I needed to
