The flazzum you spizz, the zoider you splat!
OK, I was right, I was getting an erroneous message, as soon as it had found 7 devices, I finally canceled out of the scan, and the message went away. I removed all of them, as they are not mine, and the message did not return. I think it listed every device within a mile!
I was trying to add one device: the adapter, and not every device in range, KDE just decided that I was, even though I never asked it to, making me think that the adapter wasn’t fully set up right.
Just one more KDE annoyance for my long list!
I just bought and installed this wireless network card:
ASUS PCE-AC55BT Wireless
Standards: 802.11ac Wifi AC1200 Bluetooth 4.0 PCIe/mPCIe
Chipset: Intel Wireless WiFi Link 8260 AC Adapter
firmware: iwlwifi-8000C-13.ucode (is in /lib/firmware).
In order to use bluetooth it has a separate USB connector, which is connected in the right usb port (2.0). I selected Bluetooth on installing Antergos, and have bluez, bluedevil, and a bunch of other related stuff installed too.
The wifi installed on boot just fine, and works great (I am using it now), but in KDE settings the Bluetooth adapter was not listed, so I did this:
sudo systemctl start bluetooth
sudo systemctl enable bluetooth
That worked partially, as after login and going back to settings > network > bluetooth > Devices, I got a message:
“Your default Bluetooth adapter is not visible for remote devices. [fix it]”
below the message I can see “HOSTNAME (38:DE:AD:2C:28:07) - hci0” which should be the device.
I clicked on fix it, and it set it from “Hidden” to "Always visible on the Adapter tab, but I got another message:
“Bluetooth is not completely enabled. [Fix it]”
Again, I clicked on “Fix it”, but that is not working. Back on the Device tab , below the message is: No Devices found [Add new device], so I click on that and a “Select a device” window pops up and it does a very long scan, it finds a device as “56-53-15-B9-6B-60” then another: “6D-CC-8E-CB-76-CE”, and four more so far, and it is still scanning now as I write this (more than an hour!) None of them are 38-DE-AD-2C-28-07, like the one on the adapter tab (38:DE:AD:2C:28:07) either.
well, I only have one adapter, and the wifi is dual band (2 antennas), but I don’t think the bluetooth is also dual band, but that info is nowhere to be found, and it is showing 6 devices, not two, where it is really one dual band device.
Something is telling me that it is not scanning for the adapter in my PC, but rather devices in range of it, meaning it’s giving me the wrong message: (Bluetooth is not completely enabled). there is no other bluetooth device in or connected to my PC, nor do I have any bluetooth devices of my own yet, but others in this house do, and I have a new phone coming soon I need to work with this thing.
Can anyone tell me what is going wrong? Am I missing something?
Tried to install dolphin-root, and kate-root:
Error: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!
I have been trying for a week now, as I used both before, but kdesudo worked as well (not anymore), and I know there is a fix to get the builds to work, but I have been so busy running my shop, that I just haven’t had the time to look up what to do to fix the signature issue yet.
@karasu Well, good to know that I’m not the only one with a bad memory! More RAM please! I spend so much time tracking down answers, I sometimes loose track of things and get stuff mixed up.
What a bad move by KDE! I followed the links to what the main guy responsible has to say about it, and although right in a small way, he is wrong in many big ways. I guess everyone effected should inundate them with requests to reverse it, and sharply voice their disappointment, or else they will screw up even more for stupid reasons.
About a month ago I had some problems with phonon-qt4; don’t ask I couldn’t recall the details if I wanted to. One of the solutions I found was to remove kdebase-runtime, so I did: BAD IDEA!!! it hosed my system, and uninstalled a bunch of stuff and from what I could tell the whole KDE Plasma desktop with it. I reinstalled Antergos with KDE, and never reinstalled kdebase-runtime. So much for Linux’s heralded dependency management system when developers ignore it!
Well, now I can no longer do operations needing root privileges from within dolphin and then some, and well, I don’t want to reinstall kdebase-runtime if it’s going to reintroduce problems, but without kdesudo, life is very difficult, and it is still in the AUR, needs kdebase-runtime… So it begs to ask a few questions:
Does anyone know why KDE needs kdesudo in the first place when there is gksu (an old standard), which I do have installed??? (It’s nearly impossible to get usable info and answers from the KDE people).
Is there a way to make KDE use gksu instead of kdesudo?
I also found gtksu (A QT5 based replacement for gksu) in the AUR and thought it may be of use, but the install failed due to invalid characters.
Is there some other workaround for the problem of dolphin and others asking for root’s password? I am in the wheel group, but that is obviously not enough. Maybe changing or adding an entry to the sudoers file?
Also: I do find it strange and annoying that I would need root privileges for things in usr/share, like icon and wallpaper folders and some other stuff that should be safe to add files or links to in the first place, but changing permissions on them causes problems, so that is not advised either.
I am taking notes for the future, but I still would love to know why I keep running into problems that just dissapear, or change slightly!!!
My 1920x1080 Monitor blew up about a week ago, so I swapped it for an old IBM Thinkvision at 1280x1024 until I got a new one, and I got all crazy artifacts on the screen and the cursor would go below them when moved, and my Plasma menu bars started flipping out flickering on and off going from hidden to shown. I added the new monitor Yesterday the menu bars are still flipping out, just on the new monitor, and the artifacts are still on the old one!!!
I need a new computer, and the money to buy one! I have had all kinds of stuff breaking and needing replacement in the last 2 months: My TV, car breaks (rotors and discs), the refrigerator, my shoes, my soldering station! I had to fork over ~$ 2000 just for a new fridge and monitor and stuff! If this continues my brain will blow out too! (Kapoofkaa!!!)
