Re: How to connect to Wifi from the command-line?

I attempted to blacklist with no improvement. Here is what lspci | grep Broad returns: 07:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4352 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter (rev 03) (which I hope will suffice for info about my Wifi chip). Here is my /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file. Original...

Re: How to set up KDE Plasma 5 on a minimal install of Sabay

Done that still no Wi-Fi. Wired connections appear as an option but not Wi-Fi (in the connection editor menu) so I don't think it's NetworkManager that was the issue anyway (it was already installed, I suspect it might have been drawn in when installing the @wireless set). I suspect it's to do with ...

Re: How to connect to Wifi from the command-line?

Re: How to connect to Wifi from the command-line?

Ah thanks, nmtui does seem like a good option. Although now I've noticed yet another issue, my Sabayon install does not seem to be connecting to the Wi-Fi due to a firmware issue. Or at least, nmtui is not automatically detecting the Wi-Fi networks available, like I assume it's meant to. I have inst...

Re: How to set up KDE Plasma 5 on a minimal install of Sabay

This worked (I.e., I can start KDE now with sddm), although I can't seem to connect to the Wi-Fi using the connection editor of KDE. I have added a profile manually for my Wi-Fi using the connections editor but still it won't connect to the Wifi. This is despite installing the Wireless set with: equ...

How to connect to Wifi from the command-line?

Hi, I have a HP Envy 17 laptop with a Broadcom chip, which I have installed the necessary drivers for but I can't seem to get my X server to start (see this previous question of mine for why I can't seem to start my X server) so I need a command-line means of connecting to the Wifi. On Arch Linux I ...

How to set up KDE Plasma 5 on a minimal install of Sabayon?

Hi, I installed Sabayon using the tarball release by running (as root) on an Arch Linux installation: mkdir /mnt/sabayon mount /dev/sda4 /mnt/sabayon then I extracted the contents of the 16.07 tarball to /mnt/sabayon and ran: arch-chroot /mnt/sabayon /bin/bash (as I am running on Arch Linux and arch...

Re: Video file thumbnailing in file managers failing [Solved

Well I'll be ..., using that ebuild worked and I am now getting thumbnails to work in Dolphin! Although I had to adjust it (e.g., see my overlay here). Thanks, @Fitzcarraldo.

Re: Video file thumbnailing in file managers failing [Solved

@Fitzcarraldo Ah, we are talking about non-Dolphin File Managers in this thread, I made a point of not mentioning Dolphin up to here, as I am aware that Dolphin is a problem FM due to its missing thumbnail USE flag. I have managed to install ffmpegthumbs-mattepint manually from source code and even ...

How do I edit the KDE application menu?

Hi, I have Plasma 5 installed and I have been trying to edit the menu by right-clicking the KDE icon (which when left-clicked opens the Application Menu) and clicking "Edit Applications..." (which launches KMenuEdit) but after customizing the menu to my liking, clicking "Save" and closing this windo...
