Thanks to this list, my screen resolution problem is
resolved. Next (and hopefully last) problem is that
each time I boot the system I have to manually enable
my network connection. When Gnome starts up, I see in
the top of the screen a small ethernet cable icon with
a big NOT sign (red circle with a slash
through it) over top of it. I right-click on that and
a pull-down menu allows me to enable my wired network.
Then everything is fine.
How can I fix this so that the network just comes up automatically?
Couldn't find anything on this in the archives or in the GUI.
I don't know about the GNOME desktop. For systems with static network
configuration (one that doens't change, unlike laptops) it would be
to use the ifupdown package. Check out the documentation
in /usr/share/doc/ifupdown .
which talks to the network-manager daemon. Network Manager only takes
control of interfaces that are set with allow-hotplug. If your interface was
previously set up with auto, Network Manager will ignore it by default.
Check your /etc/network/interfaces . My eth0 entry looks like this:
iface eth0 inet dhcp
If you want Network Manager, your interfaces file should look similar to
