Author Topic:  new lxqt user - no internet connection with live DVD  (Read 3519 times)


  • Guest
Hi - sorry to be so feeble but somewhat thrown when I booted up the live dvd of 14.0.1 only to find no internet connection, no network icon - nada.

Posting here via a win 7 laptop (yuch!).  Am I supposed to install network manager or something?  Did google and search forum but nothing turned up

EDIT: should have mentioned that I have both wired ethernet and wireless available.

EDIT: OK bear with me.  Found the release notes and the manual.  Realize I have to do some work to get a connection re third party firmware and software.  I'll work through it and post back

LXQt is experimental, so, hearing how you're getting along is much appreciated.  Please continue to post back.

but LXQt has ceni - big plus. And one should be able to identify his hardware - and eventually activate non-free and load the needed drivers. I would go with wired connections first.

Later nm or wicd may be a good tool

EDIT: GoinEasy9 - i have moved LXQt packages to unstable - but yeah, it has some rough edges sometimes. The manual and some informations about the system may help a lot to give useful advice
