Shot up to the ubuntu 12.04LTS release last week. Things I currently am having issues with
DNS when I connect to the VPN has been all kinds of funky. I believe I fixed this today by turning off dnsmasq
I really don’t want a local resolver, how can I turn it off?
To turn off dnsmasq in Network Manager, you need to edit /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and comment the “dns=dnsmasq” line (put a # in front of it) then do a “sudo restart network-manager”.
My other issue has been going back and forth between the office and going from two monitors to my single laptop monitor. I haven’t have a change to figure out exactly what the problem is but if I delete my mointors.xml it gets me up and running for the time being.
Edit (2012-05-30): Deleting monitor XML did fix it up. It’s probably some cruft from running through the upgrade process that last two or three updates instead of doing a fresh install.
