Issue#6956: Ubuntu - [SOLVED] resizing display

  • for whatever reason. The display I am currently using cuts off.
    In windows I would go into nvidia settings and just resize the desktop to fit. However, I do not see any such option in Xubuntu.
    Any suggestions?
    Annnnd, I just figured it out for myself. For any future reference. The problem was with my monitor. For some reason it was selected as A/V instead of PC for hdmi input settings. I have zero idea why that should matter, but there you go

  • Issue#122624: Ubuntu - [SOLVED] KDE 4.13 - OpenGL screensaver doesn't display at the forefront anymore

    Hi all, as I've just found the cause to my issue, I'd like to share it with you, in case some of you would face it as well. One day I noticed that upon entering the screenlocking mode, my OpenGL screensaver stopped displaying at the forefront. Instead, the KDE login screen was displaying (allowing me to enter my password to unlock the screenlocker and get back to my KDE session). Additional symptoms: - what I would call the "keyboard focus" wasn't set to the password field. Each time I had to press any of my keyboard keys once before the focus went to the password field (then I could type in my password normally). - when pressing Enter after my password, I could see the OpenGL screensaver display very shortly before getting back to my KDE desktop. Which made me understand the screensaver was running fine, but not displaying at the forefront as it used to. Today at last I could find a KDE option that, when disabled, would solve my issue. Go to: - KDE system configurati

  • Issue#605663: [ubuntu] Compiz - rotate cube - 3 monitors - display issue

    Hi Folks, I'm in Ubuntu 16.04, with XFCE4 running. Now this issue cropped up I think when I upgraded to 15.10, can't recall exactly, but something like that. I have 3 monitors, and I'm using compiz. I know there are other GPU compositors, but I'm actually loving compiz a lot, so switching at this time is not okay for me. I use rotate cube to switch between my workspaces a lot. It rotates all monitors separately, not one big cube or whatever. The issue is when I rotate the cube, each monitor sees the monitor beside it, and spills outside the cube ( ). Now, in the past the cube only showed THAT monitor it was relevant to, not spilling out and displaying adjacent monitor content. It's kind of weird to explain, so I hope the graphic helps! I was hoping that this would be fixed in 16.04, but it looks like this is an unreported issue. Can anyone advise please? I've tried messing with the options in Rotate Cube, but I suspect this is a code bug, not configurat

  • Issue#1185066: Linux - Ubuntu Display Resolution Issue

    I am newbie to the ubuntu world. And now I have problem in the display resolution. I am sure that the display card works fine as that did so when the ubuntu was installed. But later I made some mistakes by typing some unknown codes (my big fault) in the terminal, which has made my display resolution limited to the current "800x600". And when I typed the xrandr command, the following codes are shown: xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default Screen 0: minimum 800 x 600, current 800 x 600, maximum 800 x 600 default connected primary 800x600+0+0 0mm x 0mm 800x600 75.00* The unknown coded I typed: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gma500/emgd sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install xorg-emgd emgd-dkms emgd-xorg-conf sudo emgd-xorg-conf (*that command wasn't run successfully in my computer though*) What should I do to fix that issue?

  • Issue#2164: Ubuntu - VPN issue (Astrill)

    So weird issue here... Trying out Kubuntu for the first time (15.04) and as I live in China I need a VPN to access, well, anything useful. Astrill works fine at first, went to their site, downloaded the deb and installed it and it works fine except for one thing: It only works with the account I was using when I installed it. I installed it using my Admin account, and then switched to a regular user account, no luck. If I launch it, the icon bounces like it's launching and then nothing. I tried launching it with a second admin account..same thing. If I reinstall it in the second account, it launches but then the original account cannot use it. So basically, any time I wish to switch accounts I need to reinstall the package? That's weird. Anyone heard of anything like this before? FWIW, I have had similar issues with various codecs. Video plays fine, but only for the account that I used to install the media player with. (mainly for SMplayer) Help?

  • Issue#2343: Linux - [SOLVED] Thunderbird & Outlook 365 - suddenly folder display broken on all accounts

    This is about some major Thunderbird (or Outlook ) weirdness that started today....or at least that I noticed today. Everything used to be good. I could access all my Outlook 365 imap folders on Thunderbird (3 different Outlook accounts), it was sunny and warm and the birds were chirping outside. Suddenly, all of my Outlook folders - except for Inbox and Trash - disappeared, and my world came to halt. Maybe a bit dramatic, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem, maybe starting today? If not, I'd really appreciate any guidance on how to best troubleshoot. To be more specific, I have three unrelated Outlook 365 imap accounts, and a few other non-Outlook 365 imap (different services) accounts. All non-Outlook 365 imap accounts are continuing to work 100%. The Outlook 365 accounts, all of a sudden, stopped displaying any folders other than Inbox & Trash. When I click on subscribe, nothing is checked at all (not even Inbox). Checking any folders (even those displayed

  • Issue#2486: [ubuntu] 14.04 LTS - could not resize windows on external display

    This is a installation of 14.04 LTS (64-bit) after upgrading from 12.10 on my ThinkPad T61. This recent upgrade is great on this old T61 (Intel Dual Core 2.6 GHz 4GB [email protected] 14.1" LCD 1440 x 900). Finally last night I put this T61 back to its docking station which is connected with a monitor, keyboard and mouse and powered up with 14.01 LTS. The external monitor is an NEC MultiSync LCD 2060NX with 1680 x 1050. To my surprise, window resizing is no longer work. If I move the mouse cursor onto any edge of any window (such as Chrome and Firefox browsers, terminal and any other informational window) and drag it with the left button (to resize the window) it would not respond. I still can use the mouse to move and re-position a window with mouse and I can still use mouse to click on the "enlarge" icon on the window which would then occupy the entire screen, just not the resizing. And this only happens with the external monitor (with the laptop LCD shut). I don't recall havin

  • Issue#3211: Ubuntu - [PPC] sound on a cube- hopefully solved

    My jessie/xfce cube has been too quiet... so I had to get the sound working. This led me down a bunch of red herrings of trying to understand what was going on with the soundcard driver, snd-powerpc, etc. Then I realized... there is no card on the board! It's all done through the speakers. So that wobbly path led me to: sudo apt-get install alsa-base alsa-utils blacklist as desribed in In /etc/modprobe.d/ (mine had a alsa-base-blacklist.conf) blacklist snd-aoablacklist snd-aoa-fabric-layout blacklist snd-aoa-soundbus blacklist snd-aoa-i2sbus blacklist snd-aoa-codec-tas At one point, I had put in /etc/modules a line for snd-powermac. It's actually not needed, so I commented it out. Here is where you make it all work. Alsa installs the usb module/driver just fine, (at least for me), so one would think it would be ok. The problem is that it assigns the usb driver to the wrong slot, as it assumes that you have an onboard card. So

  • Issue#3271: Ubuntu - Keep getting 'can't open display' for whatever remote client i try

    I am not using ubuntu but tinycore linux. I am desperate and the forums over there are abandoned from what I can tell so I posted here so that maybe I'd get a response. I installed command line only install so had to install X etc manually. I kept getting that message 'can't open display' on the tinycore command line. I tried with tight vnc and rdesktop. I have installed the xstart thing and now the core install loads into the desktop by default. As a side note how do I stop that? I want x for rdp etc but i still want to boot into core and load X only as needed. Anyhow I was reading an article which said: If you have problems the first thing to do is to see the value of the variable DISPLAY on the client. If it is not set at all or set incorrectly you need to fix that, for example export DISPLAY= I put that line into the command line. Then I tried the clients again. Now it seems to hang for like two mins on the pressing of return but eventually it just return

    Jan 25, 2016 On January 23, 2016 TD Ameritrade / ThinkorSwim was updated to Version 1880.62 and part of that update was to require ThinkorSwim to run on Java Version 8.x on Linux Operating Systems. I'm currently running Linux Lite 2.6 (based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS) on my machine, and this morning when I fired up ThinkorSwim, it just hung at the "Updating Software" screen and never progressed any further. After going to the ThinkorSwim Support Site, I found that part of the update was a new requirement for Linux to have Java 8.x installed on the PC, and to tell ThinkorSwim to use it from now on. Here is the link to the ThinkorSwim Technical Document for January 23, 2016. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "Open the Technical Notes" to see the full document and instructions.

  • Issue#6805: Samsung Display: Backlight issue: dark semicircle appears on right side of screen

    So this is a second hand Samsung SyncMaster S23B300 (23") HD DVI monitor but worked fine when I first got it, daily use, no issues till recently so hopefully the previous owner didn't know about it. The issue is, when I turn the monitor on after it being off, a dark semicircular shadow radiates from the right side. If I press on the plastic frame, things return to normal, and after a bit of fiddling I can get it stable and make the screen appear normal again. However, this is becoming more frequent and more difficult to remedy each time it happens. It seems like a small issue and I am used to fixing things myself, I can solder etc, but I have no idea how these monitors work. I am under the impression that it could potentially be a capacitor, or even simply some bad connection. Should I just open it up and have a go? Any tips?

  • Issue#8757: Ubuntu - Best option for a 4-display support

    Hello! I would like to know, based on your experience, which is the best graphics card to work with Ubuntu with 4 displays attached. Important note: 4 displays at a time! Will there be any problems if I buy 2 graphics cards to configure it in Ubuntu? Or it will self-install? (Maybe this is the cheapest option, because it's difficult to find 4 displays in one same graphics card). The cards will be for working with it. I will not perform any gaming at all. Maybe I will use it also as a media center some days but I don't think this should be something to take into account. Thank you!!
