Hi,
It's happening again, have to scan, select network and enter password. Just uploaded about 2GB of updates this morning and now Firefox and Seamonkey are broken also :(
10.3-RELEASE-p18

Try "pkg upgrade"

If that doesn't work try "pkg upgrade -f"

About the wifi, what is in your /usr/local/etc/doas.conf file?

Or perhaps try the new GhostBSD 11.1 ALPHA1 image. I'm using it now and it's very stable and very good. ;)

Thanks,
pkg upgrade -f downloaded a further 500MB ish but still no firefox or seamonkey.

I don't appear to have a /usr/local/etc/doas.conf file ?

I've tried upgrading previously but it didn't work, probably opperator error, whats the best way to do this?

About Seamonkey and Firefox, can you go to OctoPkg and reinstall them? Or delete them and then install them.

Maybe a reinstall will get them working.

If they don't work after a reinstall, try opening a terminal and type "firefox" (without quotes). If firefox is working it will launch but if it doesn't error messages will come up in the terminal. This may give you the answer.

I have GhostBSD 10.3 on my machine and it definitely has a doas.conf file in /usr/local/etc/. Remember, it's a file, not a folder. Scroll down past the folders to the files. I'm not 100% sure, but if you don't have this file, the networkmgr won't work.

Good luck.

Ok, checked again and definitely don't have a doas.conf file.

I'm also getting a pop up now , not sure if it's related saying
HPLIP status service - no system tray detected on this system. Unable to start, exiting.

Going to try and upgrade again

If you're using xfce you should have a notification area(application) in your xfce4 panel. That's where the hplip icon goes. Maybe you don't have a notification area.

Are you using the "test" repository or the FreeBSD repository? To find this out run "pkg -vv" in a terminal. If you're using the FreeBSD repository it's probably the cause of your problems.

You said you were going to upgrade. If you are use the test repository. Here is a how to :

http://forums.ghostbsd.org/viewtopic.php?f=69&t=715

About the doas.conf file make one and copy and paste this into it:

permit nopass keepenv root
permit :wheel
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd netcardmgr
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd detect-nics
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd detect-wifi
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd ifconfig
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd service
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd wpa_supplicant
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd fbsdupdatecheck
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd fbsdpkgupdate
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd pkg args upgrade -y
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd pkg args upgrade -Fy
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd pkg args lock
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd pkg args unlock
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd mkdir args -p /var/db/update-station/
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd chmod args -R 665 /var/db/update-station/
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd sh args /usr/local/lib/update-station/cleandesktop.sh
permit nopass keepenv :wheel cmd shutdown args -r now

See if this solves your wi-fi problems.

A good way to debug wifi in GhostBSD is to run "networkmgr" in a terminal and see the output.
