Unable to change permission of the files on mounted partitions in ubuntu 12.04 LTS

I have just installed ubuntu 12.04 LTS. I mounted my SOFTS(/dev/sda6), a NTFS partition by selecting it on nautilus. After that I openend the terminal and tried to change the permissions of a file. The command executed but the file permissions remained unchanged. I tried changing the permissions by using root privileges but that did not work either.

'Device not ready' Message to D-Link DFE-580TX Wired Network Adapters.

Strangely that my 3 Quad port network adapters can be recognised when I write the 'ifconfig' command, but they all seem to be in 'Device not ready' state when I click on the networking tab at the toolbar (please see pictures below).

At the 'System Setting' they all seem to be recognised but again, their state doesn't change when I plug a network cable into them.

Could anybody advise if there is a solution to this problem? I'm a new Linux user (Have been using it for the past month).

The network adapters I have are the D-Link DFE-580TX.

The adapters used to work excellent with 11.10, but since I switched to 12.04 (32bit or 64bit) they stopped working.

From the Toolbar menu, it says that it's a 'Wired Network (D-Link DL 10050 Sundance Ethernet).

Thank you all.

Wifi disabled for Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000 Intel in 12.04

Laptop model - HP- dm4 - 2070.

I had faced the same problem for wireless being disabled in case of 11.10. It had to do with the new kernel. I thought with 12.04 this problem will be handled but the problem persists. Is there no way to get the wireless working except for the way mentioned in the following link ??

Should I dual-boot Ubuntu 12.04?

Hey, I am a complete noob to Ubuntu. I have mainly only used windows all my life. I ran Ubuntu 11 once or twice from a flash drive, but that is all. I haven't really done much with it. Basically, what I am asking, what reasons are there for using Ubuntu over Windows? What do you guys like about it? For those who use a dual boot, which do you use more? Since the new version of Ubuntu came out, I am thinking about using it. I'm not completely sure how to dual-boot it, but I know I can find out through tutorials and such. Thanks!

My experience with 12.04

So, I have a Chromebook, the old Cr-48 pilot netbooks. I installed Ubuntu on it a while after getting the Cr-48.

Updated to 11.10 with very few problems, all was well and good (Unity was still tripe).

So, naturally, I decide to upgrade to 12.04. Oh boy.

After clearing enough space out for the upgrade to take place (it's only an 8 or 10 gig partition, mind you), I install it last night.

I boot it up. It takes a few seconds longer to boot up now (7 vs 4 seconds, with a lot of "Failed to create pty, disabling logging for job"), and I select Unity 2D to give it a second second chance.

Immediately start getting some errors (which I've consequently forgotten since they stopped appearing after retrying Unity just now). There's no wallpaper. Unity lags like a bitch without anything running. The sidebar won't go away.

Worst part? I sign into my wifi network. About a minute later, it's disconnected and asks me for the password again. I put it in. A minute later, it's disconnected and asks for the password. I put it in. A minute later... yeah. You get the idea. It refused to "hold" the password. I had to go into network settings (after booting back to Gnome classic) and put the password in there for it to stick.\

Anyways, so I get the nagging wireless problem sorted out... Everything works fine for about... 2 hours? Then, out of thin air, the mouse stops responding to movement.

I'm giving Ubuntu the benefit of the doubt on this one. It may be the netbook hardware's fault. but whatever it was, the mouse wouldn't move. I could click, and i could click and drag to move the cursor, but just regular movement didn't work. I had to reboot the system for it to start working correctly again.

Another problem, the brightness slider under system settings ("Brightness and Lock") disappeared. It was gone in 11.04 (only appearing when it was plugged in, which is stupid), appeared in 11.10, and is subsequently gone completely in 12.04. Why? Why?

I had to use echo X | sudo tee /sys/class/backlight/i915_backlight/brightness (where X is a number between 0 and 256 for some reason) to set the brightness. I can use cat /sys/class/backlight/i915_backlight/brightness to get the current brightness, if that helps anyone. Credits to the guys at askubuntu.

But at least it's shiny and bright and new, right guys?

Has anyone else been experiencing a slow connection to the package archives?

Previously, I was running 11.10, and my package cache would update in less than 15 seconds using both the main and US servers. After upgrading to 12.04, it takes about 5 minutes for the cache to update using:

sudo apt-get update 

Has anyone else been experiencing this problem, and does anyone know how I might be able to fix the issue?
