I downloaded the xvid codec from: PackMan:: Informationen zum Paket xvidcore, and the install was successful.I'm trying to play an xvid file, and Kaffeine is saying it cannot play all file formats, would I like to install additional support. When I click yes, it asks me for additional repositories.
I'm having some problems with banshee that started about 6 months ago. Banshee remains idle and does not play any type of music file. I've tried installing and selectively installing Gstreamer codecs with no success. I'm running stretch.
i have fresh installed debian wheezy xfce4, and using slim to start it but i can't get reboot, shutdown and thunar can't open flash and others volumes. i using .xinitrc (exec ck-launch-session startxfce4)
In a random folder, if i right click on a random file for example a pdf file, i can see in the shortcut menu that appears the choice "tags". It is clear how i can create a new tag or associate an existing tag to a specific file.
My question is, how can i search for files that have a specific tag? For example if i have two files that i already gave them the tag "test", can i use some program and find that two files by using the tag "test"?
Something within the group of updates which I installed last week (April 6 to 10 or so) has impaired the functionality of my mouse's scroll wheel. It will no longer scroll pages on Iceweasel, Midori, some PDF readers, PCManFM, and others. The "up arrow" and "down arrow" seem also to have been compromised. I suspect the culprit might be libx11. This is an amd64 system with the nvidia video driver.
If you do, please let me know what sound card you're using. I'm beginning to think its the driver. All kinds of weirdness in early bootspace and also alsactl init fails with a missing init directory for the device.
I'm on a Creative Labs Soundblaster Audigy SE and it's completely non-functional. I've seen bugs reported with the audigy LS but never the SE.
I have Debian WHeezy 7.7 KDE, card Radeon 5000 series. Card has HDMI, video on HDMI working, but sound not working. System see sound device, but if I select this and try to play music then no sound. I tried many things. Below is some lists.
So the other day I installed Debian Wheezy on my Sun Blade 150. While the OS is installed fine, all the webkit based browsers continuously crash after a few pages. So, I tried to download IceWeasel since it wasn't installed when I tried installing Debain off the DVD. The only problem is, it won't install as the Xulrunner version it requests is xulrunner-24.0_24.5.0esr-1~deb7u1_sparc, however the only version available on the repositories is newer. Is there any way to get the older xulrunner version, or is there going to be a fix for IceWeasel soon on Sparc?
My hp does not want to start X for some reason. I have so many errors. I made an account to just see this problem be fixed. Now when I type "startx" I get back, "bash: /usr/bin/startx no such file in directory". I have to use GRUB due to the fact I forgot my login. Although, I do remember my password.
I am pretty new to using Linux, I am currently trying to configure 3 monitor's with Xorg in Debian Wheezy. I have 2 video cards in the PC and one has a Dell Y-splitter to connect 2 monitors. 2 monitors are 1920x1080 resolution and the other is 1280x1024.
LSPCI Code: Select all00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family DRAM Controller (rev 09) 00:01.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation Xeon E3-1200/2nd Generation Core Processor Family PCI Express Root Port (rev 09) 00:16.0 Communication controller: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family MEI Controller #1 (rev 04) 00:16.3 Serial controller: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family KT Controller (rev 04) 00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82579LM Gigabit Network Connection (rev 04)
I attempted to write my own xorg.conf file, but that resulted in the machine booting to single user mode and the xorg startx error log said it could not find any devices.
When I used the xorg.conf.new generated by the "xorg -configure" command, I was able to get it to display as 3 independent screens, but there was overlap on the screens. I.E. if you moved the mouse to the right side of one monitor, it would show on the left side of another screen at the same time.
I have some very strange issues with my tripple monitor setup on debian wheezy. I have acer aspire V3 laptop with i915 Intel (Intel¬ģ HD Graphics 4000) as part of i3 and nvidia GT 740M which I never managed to get working with or without optimus to any degree whatsoever. What I want is a reliably working triple monitro setup. I have 2 additional DELL u2412m monitors which I did manage to get to work on few occasions by more or less randomly turning stuff on and off via lxrand and KDE systemsettings (so I do knwo for a fact that tripple monitor setup works). Arandr doesn't work, and executing xrandr from cmd doesn't work. I can relatively easily get the 2 monitors to mirror each other, but to get them to work separately is extremy difficult. It's always the same error but the well known crt. For example:
When it did work I copied arandrs script in hopes it would work, but it doesn't. Obviously, here is the issue that the crtc can not be configured so if somoen could tell me why and how to get the damn thign to use a specific crtc it would be awesome. Also, I noticed that when I hit "identify monitors" in KDE systemtools, it would say VGA HDMI for both VGA and HDMI outputs.
Here is xrandr output from when it worked:

i have an installation of wheezy 7.8 i think. i was facing difficulties in read of matroska video. therefore have decided to installer gstreamer1.0 wich should be resolve my problem. i have added the backports repository in apt sources list. after an apt-get update i launch apt-get install gstreamer1.0 . i have noticed it have starting downloading more file than it needs i concluded that it was a upgrade or something like because the kernel was also updated. after the the packet downloading it has started the installation with some errors related to LOCALE LCC. it has stopped and restarted some services wich is normal. i have closed all others apps and restarted. Here start the hell. after the restart i have passed the kde login screen and after BLACK SCREEN with mouse working.
Alt+F2 don't open the krunner
What i have tried? i have rename the /home/jefcolbi/.cache and back it again, rename /home/jefcolbi/.kde and back it again. next i have tried to check the Xorg config file. i created a new one with X -configure, modified it to feet my system configuration this does not resolve the problem but add another the keyboard is not working in graphical mode.
My system configuration:
Toshiba laptop Satellite Pro L300 Dual core 3gb Ram graphic card:Mobile Intel(R) GMA 4500MHD sound card: Intel HD Audio debian whezzy 7.8 with KDE
Note: everything was working fine before trying to install gstreamer1.O from backports repository
The problem: backlight is in maximum state and I can not change it.
There are a tons of advices like this:
1 - Open terminal (as a superuser) and type: gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub 2 - In the text file that opens, find the line which says GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="" and, inbetween the "", insert the words "acpi_backlight=vendor" (the line will be as follows: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="acpi_backlight=vendor"), save and close the file. 3 - Back again in the terminal session, type: sudo update-grub 4 - Reboot.
I'm having all sorts of problems after doing my first update (#1. safe-upgrade, #2. full-upgrade) in over a month.
Anything from no Nvidia linux-headers being found to any VT not working. After completely removing all of the previously tried Nvidia presence on my PC, is there a safe way for me to install the non-free drivers?
I have Xfce installed on wheezy, and I was planning on installing some KDE components for kicks. When I tried to install kdebase-workspace I got this error from aptitude The following NEW packages will be installed:
The following packages are RECOMMENDED but will NOT be installed: kinfocenter plasma-scriptengines policykit-1-gnome polkit-kde-1 upower 0 packages upgraded, 30 newly installed, 0 to remove and 49 not upgraded. Need to get 78.5 MB of archives. After unpacking 137 MB will be used. The following packages have unmet dependencies: xfce4-notifyd: Conflicts: notification-daemon but it is not going to be installed.
If it's not going to be installed, then where is the conflict? I've seen "Depends: X but it is not going to be installed", which makes sense. The only solutions are to remove xfce4-notifyd or to keep most of the KDE stuff uninstalled. apt-get also wants to remove xfce4-notifyd. Edit: Ok, it looks like both plasma-widgets-workspace and xfce4-notifyd provide notification-daemon, but I still don't understand why the aptitude error doesn't tell me that xfce4-notifyd conflicts with plasma-widgets-workspace instead of notification-daemon.
There is a folder in my home titled 'gtk-3.0,' which continues to reappear even after I have deleted it. The reappearance of the folder seems to occur after using lxappearance to change the themes. I will not be participating in the headaches of the switch from gtk2 to gtk3, just as I did not participate in the headaches of the switch from KDE 3 to 4. So the following are my questions;1. Is it possible to permanently delete the gtk-3.0 folder so that it can not ever reappear in my home? (And why is it appearing there anyway? Shouldn't it be hidden with a dot?)2. If I can not prevent this folder from appearing in my home, is there a setting I can use in Wheezy to block gtk3 libs and apps from installation? Presently, the only gtk3 lib or app shown by aptitude search is libcanberra-gtk3-0, but I can't remove it due to notification-daemon dependencies.3. If I switch from all gtk2 apps to all KDE apps will that solve the problem of gtk3 placing a completely unnecessary folder in my home?
I rebooted my system about a few days ago to find that whenever X was started, my mouse and keyboard would not function. I am unable to even switch to another tty when this occurs, however alt+sysrq+r will allow me to switch ttys again.
Xorg.0.log [† † 70.287] X.Org X Server 1.10.1 Release Date: 2011-04-15
I experienced this problem on Friday but didn't have time to write a warning.A couple of days ago, xserver-xorg-core 2:1.10.2-1+b1 reached Testing before a corresponding dependency (recommendation), thus breaking the hardware acceleration. The issue is (better) described here (1) by a developer.A possible solution is to keep (2) the previous version (2:1.10.2-1) or, if you already installed the faulty one, to grab the former version from Debian Snapshots (3) and downgrade the package.Because the error was a simple path change, one could also keep the new version of xserver-xorg-core and link the DRI Mesa modules to the directories that are inspected now (as described here ).The issue has already been addressed (5) and a new version should appear in Testing shortly.[URL]
I can't get Gnome's Web(browser) (ver 3.4.2) working with flash. I see only a kind of blue box, when I click on it, audio playback starts but not video. I tried this on two machines, one with Intel graphics, second with radeon.
I just installed wheezy and upgraded to jessie. I had previously gotten sound working in wheezy by installing the flashplugin-nonfree and flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound packages, after configuring my headset in system settings. However, now I can't get sound to play in firefox. I've installed flashplugin-nonfree, flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound, and pulseaudio, still without luck. The volume is turned all the way up in alsamixer, sound tests play fine, and I can play music in VLC without any problems. This leads me to believe it's not a problem with drivers, but with some package I'm missing that will allow firefox to play sound. Sound wasn't working in the default video player either, before I installed the flash plugin. Is there something I'm missing?
Also, sound doesn't play on Konqueror either (KDE browser), which seems to indicate it's a problem with flash and not with firefox itself. After removing the flash plugin and installing pepperflashplugin-nonfree to ensure the pepper plugin was used instead of flash, sound still would not play in chromium, so I reinstalled the flash plugin and still don't have sound in any browser.
I have a LMDE (Mint Linux Edition based on testing, now Wheezy) i386 that I just did a dist-upgrade on and now it isn't properly detecting my monitor resolution. I have two 1680x1050 monitors, one attached to the DVI and another to a VGA video switch. When I rebooted to the new 2.6.38-2-686 kernel both monitors were giving me 1024x768. I futzed around for a while and could then get the the DVI monitor to correctly identify the proper resolution, but the VGA monitor resolutely refused to see more than 1024x768.
I was able to get the proper resolution by entering these commands:
Should I file a bug report, and if so, with whom? I have to say, the Debian bug report process is not too newbie (or even not-so-newbie) friendly, but I'd like to help if it doesn't require me to hand-configure a MUA.
Also, I suppose I shouldn't mention it in a single post, but my mouse is behaving rather unpredictably now (click speed, selecting), and trying to reboot dismounts the file system and then starts up again giving me my display manager (in my case KDM), without restarting the system (both from "sudo reboot" and trying to restart with KDM or the Gnome widget). If I really want to restart the system I have to halt it first and hit the power button.
