Hello,

OK. Thanks.

I'll try everything and I'll come back soon.

Are you using Gnome?

No I'm not. I'm using XFCE

Hello,

I set up Conky and it shows me that Firefox is using too many CPU ressources. The CPU Usage rises to 100% when I 'm using Firefox. Others softwares are using CPU ressources: clamd and xorg.

I did as you said:
Network-Manager can be a beautiful tool or your worst headache. What I would do to test it is to disable it and add a few lines into /etc/network/interfaces like this:

Code: Select all
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid "my SSID"
wpa-psk "my password".


Now the internet connection is a little more quickly than before.

I already installed firmware-realtek jessie (stable). Need I install the jessie-backports version?

Thanks in advance.
Hélène

You would only need firmware from jessie-backports if you were also using the kernel from there. A newer kernel and firmware is worth a try, as the driver is built into the kernel and it might include a newer version that fixes your bug.

Realtek wi-fi devices also have get your kind of problems reported often--often a fix involves disabling any power savings for the thing.

For the stock 3.16 kernel, as root or with sudo:

Code: Select all
tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8192se.conf <<< "options rtl8192se ips=N fwlps=N swlps=N"


The 4.9 backports kernel driver uses 1 and 0 instead of Y and N for the parameters:

Code: Select all
tee /etc/modprobe.d/rtl8192se.conf <<< "options rtl8192se ips=0 fwlps=0 swlps=0"


Then unload and reload the driver, again as sysadmin:

Code: Select all
rmmod rtl8192se && modprobe rtl8192se



Anyway, there are loads of hits for problems with the rtl8192se driver on the web, so if this doesn't fix it, the answer may still be out there if you do your own search.
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.0.6, Pale Moon 27.4.0, Liquorix kernel 4.11-9, mpv 0.25.0, Kodi 17.3, Ksnip 1.3.1, Mesa 13.0.6
