@user2215151: i posted 7 hours ago how to proceed. Post the output of lsmod and lspci -v. Without that we can't really help you.

@Creek: netinst means the install medium, not the kind of installation you ultimately end up with on your system

A Debian standard installation does come with a graphical interface these days ... even the standard installer has a graphical interface. You will need to be a lot more precise about your installation and answer the other questions I asked you before anybody can help you. And when you paste the output of lspci, please use lspci -v to get and post more information.

It usually has an icon somewhere on your desktop, often found somewhere in the top right or bottom right corner of the screen. It's some applet which lets you manage you rnetwork connections, tell you about available WLANs etc.

Can you provide us with the output of the pretty hardware detection? Please also provide the output of lsmod. Why don't you use network-manager? That's usually standard issue these days.

comment Is is safe to share /home between Ubuntu and Fedora?
+= In the very specific case of a recent Ubuntu and a similarly recent Fedora you shouldn't run into problems, because the software versions are not too far from each other. However, if it really is your user specific setting that keeps your Gnome from starting with Fedora, you could very well hit the same problem with Ubuntu.

comment Removing unused init scripts
@MartinVegter: It is a misbelief that diverging from your distribution's standard set-up yields any benefit for something you neither need nor care about nor see any effects after the boot process has completed. If it ain't broken, don't fix it.

comment Removing unused init scripts
Removing those will not achieve any noteworthy effect. Thousands of others would have to profit from this question until the time saved during boot amounts to the time we take discussing it. If you want to speed up/optimise things, get rid of those init scripts that start services, i.e. daemons, in the background, but you don't use/need.

And why not as an argument to the script? There is no best way (see edit to my answer), there is only sensible for your intents and purposes.

No it's not. I'm just asking you, because its nice additional information on the topic, as the OP states its viable to have the users specify their contact email address.

IMO "the best" way does not involve the users specifying it ...
