Too many pop ups on driver install [on hold]

I am setting up a new build machine for my company’s software. We have 7 drivers and previously on Windows 7 it would pop up once with do you trust the company and if you clicked “always trust” and clicked yes it would install all 7 without any more pop ups. The new build from the new build machine it pops up and asks you separately for all 7 drivers even if you click “always trust.” These pop ups are very annoying and we would really like to get it back down to a single pop up as to not annoy our customers. The old build machine has a Symantec code signing certificate that is due to expire. I bought a new Sectigo code signing certificate for the build machine that is being used to sign the 7 drivers that are causing the pop ups. Any idea what might have changed or what I could do to get it back down to a single pop up? Thanks.

Cross-signing certificates for Windows Driver Signing

For testing purposes I want to test cross-signing certificates for Windows driver signing. I understand the general concept: Two root CAs, one root CA cross-signs the other root CA’s public key.

However, I couldn’t find any information on how to cross-sign the root CA’s public key exactly. When I simply sign the public key with the cross-certificate in OpenSSL, the cross-certificate is presented as the root certificate. Should it be like that? If not, does anybody what commands can be used to cross-sign a root CA’s public key?

USB Type-C to HDMI adapter does not work on Ubuntu – no driver found

I bought a USB Type-C to HDMI adapter from ELECOM (the brand name written in the adapter)

The monitor does not detect/work with this adapter.

I have tested the monitor (HDMI cable only) with a different laptop and it is working.

I conclude that the problem is the USB t-C to HDMI adapter is the one to blame.

By checking the dmesg, I get this when I plug in the device:

[ 296.081961] usb 1-1: USB disconnect, device number 5 [ 311.731196] usb 1-1: new low-speed USB device number 6 using xhci_hcd [ 311.885375] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=1f29, idProduct=0000, bcdDevice= 0.00 [ 311.885377] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 311.885378] usb 1-1: Product: ANALOGIXSEMI COM [ 311.885380] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: BILLBOARD CLASS [ 311.885381] usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 201501ANX001 

I also tried in Windows 10 system, and it does not work as well, my laptop is dual-boot.

My OS info is this:

UBUNTU 10.04 LTS Linux 5.0.0-31-generic #33~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 1 10:20:39 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux 

By checking on Windows 10, the USB in the device manager shows a warning with the Invalid Device Descriptor as the warning message.

By checking in Linux, with the lsusb I see this for this adapter:

Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c52b Logitech, Inc. Unifying Receiver Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0489:e0a2 Foxconn / Hon Hai Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bda:58f4 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.

Where this line is the one that is related to the USB adapter (the before last):

Bus 001 Device 008: ID 1f29:0000 

By checking it using lsusb -t I get this:

/:  Bus 04.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/2p, 5000M /:  Bus 03.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/2p, 480M     |__ Port 1: Dev 2, If 0, Class=Human Interface Device, Driver=usbhid, 12M     |__ Port 1: Dev 2, If 1, Class=Human Interface Device, Driver=usbhid, 12M     |__ Port 1: Dev 2, If 2, Class=Human Interface Device, Driver=usbhid, 12M /:  Bus 02.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/6p, 5000M /:  Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/12p, 480M     |__ Port 1: Dev 10, If 0, Class=Application Specific Interface, Driver=, 1.5M     |__ Port 5: Dev 3, If 3, Class=Video, Driver=uvcvideo, 480M     |__ Port 5: Dev 3, If 1, Class=Video, Driver=uvcvideo, 480M     |__ Port 5: Dev 3, If 2, Class=Video, Driver=uvcvideo, 480M     |__ Port 5: Dev 3, If 0, Class=Video, Driver=uvcvideo, 480M     |__ Port 7: Dev 4, If 0, Class=Wireless, Driver=btusb, 12M     |__ Port 7: Dev 4, If 1, Class=Wireless, Driver=btusb, 12M     |__ Port 10: Dev 5, If 0, Class=Communications, Driver=cdc_acm, 12M     |__ Port 10: Dev 5, If 1, Class=CDC Data, Driver=cdc_acm, 12M 

Above, the line that is regarding to the adatar is this one:

    |__ Port 1: Dev 10, If 0, Class=Application Specific Interface, Driver=, 1.5M 

So, as we can see, the speed is only 1.5M, and there is no driver for this as shown.

Port 1: Dev 10, If 0, Class=Application Specific Interface, Driver=, 1.5M I guess there is no driver for this device, as indicated above.

Installing driver for TP-LINK Archer T9UH AC1900 on Ubuntu 18.04

Recently bought a WiFi booster to combat patchy WiFi in my uni dorm, works perfectly with Windows as driver installation was easy to follow, yet I can’t seem to figure out how to install the Ubuntu drivers. The picture attached is the guide to installing with Ubuntu but I can’t follow it, could someone really spell it out step by step like I’m 5 years old please enter image description here

How to refresh/update driver after graphics card change?

While my old graphics card (GT 730) was working normally, I removed it and installed a new one (GT 630). On both Windows and Ubuntu, the new one started with the default generic driver which supported basic screen resolutions (800×600 & 1024×768).

Driver selection grays out other options

I have 2 questions:

  1. Nvidia driver v390 supports both Fermi and Kepler, why does it not work with both graphics cards after a change?
  2. The generic driver only works for a little while on Windows (1-2 minutes) until Windows automatically recognizes and re-configures the driver to work with the new graphics card without the need of a driver re-installation. Ubuntu just sticks forever with it. How to manually make the new card work?

How do I update Nvidia display driver on ubuntu 18.04, if I already installed cuda toolkit 10.2 and its bundled display driver?

I installed CUDA toolkit 10.2 on ubuntu 18.04 LTS. I previously did not have any nvidia display drivers, so it came bundled with the 418 version display driver. This seemed to work fine.

I noticed on the NVIDIA site that the latest driver was 430. I want to update my display driver from 418 to 430. How can I do this?

[Downloading the driver directly] (https://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx), and then running the installer, doesn’t work; it gives a complaint that Nvidia is already running with Xorg.

Problem with portable ubuntu graphics driver and resolution

So I setup Ubuntu 16.04.5 LTS 64bit on an external HDD to use with both my home computer and laptop.

Home PC:

  • GTX 1660 Ti
  • AMD Ryzen 5 2600

Laptop: Macbook Pro (late 2013) with i5 processor and Intel Iris Graphics.

When setting up ubuntu I didn’t install any third party drivers since that was recommended on the guide I followed for portable setup.

Macbook works fine without any drivers, but on PC the monitor is shown as builtin display and I can’t change the resolution to anything other than 1024×768. I tried using xrandr for adding new modeline but it didn’t work saying the maximum resolution for the display is 1024×768.

So I installed nvidia driver (430.50) manually from Nvidia’s website and now ubuntu recognizes my monitor and I can change the resolution. But now it causes problem on Macbook.

When I boot it on Macbook after installing nvidia driver, after entering password on login screen, it gives a black screen and few seconds later returns to login screen.

Tried blacklisting nvidia driver when booting on Mac but it doesn’t work.

So I want to either:

  • Change the resolution on PC without nvidia driver
  • Use the nvidia driver on PC but disable it when booting on Mac

Been googling for two days but couldn’t find any solution that works.

Problems with Realtek 723d wifi driver

I had a problem regarding a Realtek 723d wifi driver on Ubuntu 18.04.

At first, the device was not recognized and on the outut of lshw -C network the device was labeled as “UNCLAIMED”.

Found many relevant posts and tried everything with no success, until I downloaded that repository: https://github.com/smlinux/rtl8723de , followed the instruction on “README” and managed to activate the driver. However it seems like I’m only able to connect to “free access” networks, as connection to any password protected network (my home and phone) failed. Any ideas?
