…after 45 years. About time!

Now I futz around with my six computers, five Windows systems and seven Linux systems two archlinux, one Debian an great old Ubuntu 19.04lts and three Mythbuntus. Help out friends and post stuff that I have worked through and think might help others.

Also dabble in cooking, photography, music and goofing off.

comment Can't connect to my wireless network though GNOME
It would be helpful for you to identify the hardware the installation is on, especially if it is a laptop. i.e. my Lenovo S12 fails with network manager, so I use WiCD. Also the drivers for the WiFi device ann be troublesome.

comment Why do I have to restart NetworkManager.service all the time?
After deprecating Gnome 3.6 and fresh install of ArchLinux/Xfce 4.1, the problem still occurs. In addition, after restart of NetworkManager.service, the NetworkManger applet disappears.

comment Why do I have to restart NetworkManager.service all the time?
I have a similar anomaly. NetworkManager will drop the wireless connection after a while and NetworkManger restart is required. Arch Linux and Gnome 3.6 on systemd
