Playdayz, et al,

UPDATE 2/20/2014: In response to a report that the 1.2.4 version cannot be downloaded, I have added the latest version of usb_modeswitch in the 1.2.x series. I have not stepped up to the new vesion 2.x.y series. The 1.2.7 version is included in lucid pup 5.2.8.6, which is available in its own thread. I am not documenting the additional supported modems, as this is a quick workaround for the download problem. Please report any problem with this new modeswitcher.

I cannot say "yes" or "no", but some could be. I say that because the mode switcher is for any hybrid device that initially appears as a cdrom containing a Win...s driver. If you have a USB wireless interface, you can check whether it is supported, by looking in /usr/share/usb_modeswitch/ for a file with a name beginning with your device's storage-mode hardware ID.

I believe that not all such devices require the switcher because, somehow, the usb-storage driver knows to make the switch.

PostPosted: Tue 14 Aug 2012, 17:13    Post subject: Pmount unmounts and renames flashcards saving pages with SM2
Subject description: Pmount under Lupupluslibre unmounts and renames flashcards saving pages with SM211
 

Have run into a disturbing problem while saving web pages to flash card on the USB2.0 port under lupupluslibre with Seamonkey 2.11.

It most recently occurred while having several windows open in Seamonkey and saving by turns to two different folders on an SD card.

The save would fail with a message that the directory didn’t exist. And each time I would have to open pmount (because no new drive icon appears on the desktop), find the new name of the SD card, mount it, and do the save again. It's noteworthy that even when the drive is mounted under its new name, no drive icon appears on the desktop. This process continued relentlessly once started, renaming the card progressively from sdd1 to sdk1.

This problem is fairly recent, and I wonder if it’s due to the July update of SM to v. 2.11? The more serious issue is whether this is a symptom of unreliability in writes to flash media via Seamonkey 2.11? This is how I usually document my online purchases.

I've also noted a new problem with the SM2.11 password manager today. I usually save these passwords prior to doing an update (having lost some in the past) by displaying them from the tools/password manager menu, and then saving a screenshot to a flashcard.

I haven't done this in a while, so I don't know when the change might have happened, but SM 2.11 no longer allows me to view more than one URL's password at a time, making the screenshot technique rather impractical.

I looked at the Mozilla site for password saver add-ons, but the two I found are incompatible with v. 2.11.

I use Seamonkey almost exclusively for web browsing because of familiarity and relative simplicity of configuration. But now I'm wondering whether it's time to dump Seamonkey forever?

Battery app.
Battery icon says that all is fine and that it is charging but the battery is actually losing charge because the peripherals eg external harddrive, mouse are drawing more power than is being supplied. So end up with a flat battery crash when the charging cable is still pluged in!

Using the USB connector to charge? BK found it was a bad idea - cf his Blog. USB can only supply half-an-amp; it's not enough. Either use a powered USB hub, which still has shortcomings eg you've no idea where you are unless you stick a meter in circuit, even then some of the cables might have too big an iR drop, etc., etc. To be confident, use your chargers that came with the battery equipment, whether that be a mobile, laptop or peripheral. Never use battery kit unless it's unavoidable - you have 100A @240V available from the domestic ring, perhaps more - or less if the wife switches on the oven, drier and your Samsung larder fridge cuts in.

Hi Sage, not using a Usb charger. Using the original netbook charger from the wallplug into the netbook powersocket via extension cord. could be too much load from other users. will investigate a powered hub if problem persists. thanks. battery app code needs some refinement.

Those things have a higher failure rate than bad caps! Perhaps due to bad caps?

had to search for bad caps Crying or Very sad http://www.badcaps.net/pages.php?vid=5
more inclined to suspect the power supply at present. had problems that I suspected were powersupply previously with previous equipment when in this hotel/region. will hold off taking remedial action till I move on. only using the external harddrive when the battery is full is not too bothersome at present.
previuos eeepc went through 3 chargers before it died. this current charger/equipment is less than a week old.
