Unless ceni is also depracated now. May need to go with NetworkManager and nm-applet.

@gordon - how many network cards do you have attached to this computer? You are showing both the older eth0 and newer enp2s15 designations in your /etc/network/interfaces file. Usually not done that way.

Post the current output of "lspci" and "ip addr".

Not sure what happened to you.

Should you go the reinstall route, get both network cards installed and connect with the wired ethernet. Boot the live image and see if lspci at least finds both cards. I don't know if the kernel will be new enough for the wifi card to work. If everything is working you can reinstall and the upgrade should get the newer kernel that will have support for your wifi.

That's the wifi card.
Does lspci no longer see your eternet card - this one

Code: [Select]

That wifi card may be messing you up - bad card or something.

1. Remove that wifi card and make sure the ethernet card is properly seated
2. Edit you /etc/network/interfaces file so that only the loopback interface remains. The file will look like:

Code: [Select]
# The loopback network interface
auto lo                         
iface lo inet loopback

3. Reboot (you may or may not have internet/network) and re-run ceni with the wired interface and see if you get your internet/networking back.

ip addr not even finding enp2s15 now

It only shows the loopback interface?

Does -

Code: [Select]
recognize the ethernet card being there?

If you remove the fenvi card, do you get your ethernet back? You may have a bad card messing everything up.

 What is your kernel version?

Code: [Select]
uname -a
Your wireless card isn't showing up. If you have a pre 5.1 kernel, the support isn't built in. I don't know if there is an intel-firmware package for that card.

Get your wired connection working again? You will need to access your router and set up a wireless network. See your router's documentation for that.

Once your network and card are set up, you can use ceni to select the wireless card and go from on there. Scan for networks, select yours etc ....

You can use ceni to re-establish your wired connection.It will overwrite the /etc/network/interface file with the new ethernet designation.

Ceni should also be able to establish your wired connection.

What does:

Code: [Select]
ip addr
output now? You should see the wireless. Normally it will be something like wlp1s0 not wlan0.

Have you set up a wireless network? You will need to access your router and give the wireless a name and password before you can connect.

The usual suspects. Been using tilix terminal lately. Decent terminal.
psuinfo for the tint2 system info plugins.

@vastone - how old is that install?

That ethernet controller is the one listed by the lspci command:

Code: [Select]
02:0f.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8110SC/8169SC Gigabit Ethernet (rev 10)
So that's your wired network.

In the documentation for your specs you see something like:

Code: [Select]
Wireless    Dell Wireless-N 1705 and Bluetooth 4.0
or something like this in your lspci -

Code: [Select]
01:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter (rev 01)
If it's not in the specs for the computer, you probably don't have wireless. You would need to buy  a wireless network adapter of some sort.

 You will need to know what brand your wireless card is before you get the firmware. There is nothing listed with those terminal commands. I assume you are not using wireless to connect to the internet.

Check your computer specs in the operator's manual or find the model online and read the specs there. Once you know the brand you can get the firmware package.

No wireless ethernet device listed. Are you sure you have one? You'll need to get the firmware for it before you can use it.

Don't worry about the lo - that's the loopback interface - virtual device on all linux machines.

Can you connect this printer via USB? At least get it working until you get the wireless figured out.

There in no wireless extension on enp2s15

The enp* is usually the hard wired interface not the wireless. What is the output of:

Code: [Select]
ip addr
that will list your network interfaces.  You should see the lo (loopback) enp2s15 for the wired, and the wireless - usually begins with "wl"

Also use:

Code: [Select]
to get a list of the network controllers.

Normally, if you uninstall a driver, you can reinstall it if needed. Especially if it's a debian package. If that is the fix for other users, it should work for you.

Which installers have you looked at?

Any familiarity with the Xebian Project??

It uses the Debian installer for a Sid install (I successfully installed it to metal the one time I tried). You can hit that code tab and see their configuration.

I tried getting a Sid build/iso from a Debian live-build setup. Someone else did the heavy lifting to set up a Debian stable system. But the build process would always fail. Maybe you can spot the tweak needed to get Sid to successfully build.

discuss why some kernels appear to work and others seem to have left the r8169 code completely out

The kernel team may do that if the driver is old and presents a security risk.

The polling driver for the SD card reader in my HP laptop (which also happens to be a realtek) was dropped, and I had to compile a kernel from source to specifically add that driver if I wanted to read/write a card greater than 2GB. I do not recall if the card reader worked with live sessions. Almost a full kernel version later, a new driver from realtek showed up.

Doesn't really explain why you have networking with live session, but not an install. I don't know how the installer goes about determining if a driver should be added to the initramfs and how all that gets built.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8, product=0x112a) at libusb:001:002
  # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
  # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

There's your scanner.

You can search through the Debian packages for scanner software; I've never used any.

Have you tried the Debian User Forum - I bet someone has gotten this printer-scanner to work.
