Hi @wena, and welcome!
We’re not here to bite your head off. If that happens, I think it’s instead you, biting your own head off. But I can point you here:
Hope you manage!
To provide terminal output, copy the text you wish to share, and paste it here, surrounded by three (3) backticks, a.k.a grave accents. Like this:
Or three (3) tilde signs, like this:
This will just cause it to be rendered like this:
cursus nisl nisi
hendrerit ac quis
tortor sit leo commodo.
Instead of like this:
Portaest sed elementum cursus nisl nisi hendrerit ac quis sit adipiscing tortor sit leo commodo.
Alternatively, paste the text you wish to format as terminal output, select all pasted text, and click the </> button on the taskbar. This will indent the whole pasted section with one TAB, causing it to render the same way as described above.
Thereby improving legibility and making it much easier for those trying to be of assistance.
If your language isn’t English, please prepend any and all terminal commands with
LC_ALL=C. For example:
This will just cause the terminal output to be in English, making it easier to understand and debug.
Please edit your post accordingly.
you may want to open a terminal and issue
sudo dmesg > output.txt and maybe use a service like pastebin to post the output.
Card is recognized and driver is loaded, so it could be something on top of it. Other than dmesg which others request, try also:
$ sudo journalctl -u NetworkManager
press End key to move to the latest line, then you can slowly press [Page]Up to find some suspicious lines or just copy-paste some of them.
Thanks, this is great, Just the kind of help I need, I have no knowledge in html or anything. But I just marked the text i needed directly from Terminal and with a rightclick i had an option to “copy as html” and kinda liked the sound of that, yeah well
Yeah i have my system setup in english, I never like translations to swedish, which is is my main lang and Sweden is where i live, and I know how strange everything comes out and sounds when I and other swedes speak or write in english, I can spot swedish posters online, its something with sentence building that becomes weird, HA ! =)
I´ll get right on with fixing the editing in my post now when i have figured out how to do the ` backticks
Hi thanks for helping.
i looked for pastebin in pamac , and after a dig for it in terminal i got a worrying warning
“DeprecationWarning: distro.linux_distribution() is deprecated. It should only be used as a compatibility shim with Python’s platform.linux_distribution(). Please use distro.id(), distro.version() and distro.name() instead.”
but there is something called “pastebinit” installed if i understand everything
i dont know, is this serious?
I’m also not English, yet I also prefer it for computer stuff. It’s just easier, but not everyone’s like that. Not everyone can be awesome!
There is no driver for your Wifi, it seems:
And according to this page it is included in the Kernel, if you use at least version 4.0. You can see which kernel you’re running, by executing:
…in the terminal.
If you are running something greater than 4.0, then the module (driver) doesn’t get loaded for some reason. Which I don’t know what it is but could be that it’s blacklisted for some reason. Please provide the output of:
Have a look at [SOLVED] Wifi & Bluetooth (QCA6174 ath10k) not working in kernel 5.3.5 / Kernel & Hardware / Arch Linux Forums .
Basically, if you run
dmesg | grep ath10k
Failed to find firmware-N.bin' or 'could not fetch firmware files
you may be missing the package
linux-firmware. Check if it’s installed, if not install it:
sudo pacman -S linux-firmware
sudo modprobe -r ath10k_pci && sudo modprobe ath10k_pci
