Debian Multimedia :: KDE With 3d Driver - Glitches On Window Decorations When Pass The Mouse Cursor From Windows Topbars

Aug 21, 2011

I installed today debian wheezy from OpenSUSE system via bootstrap. I have some strange behaviour with kde. At first kde worked fine and the only problem was that if I tried to logout from kde session, instead of kdm shows up, a black screen appear with mouse cursor working. I first ignore this error(because I had some problems with audio) and just reboot from vt console or sometimes restart kdm service. After I solved the audio problem I've searched to find some solution about kdm black screen problem. I found on kde forums a solution about terminate xserver option on kdmrc file, which didn't work in my case, but create another problem.

The problem is that now when I pass the mouse cursor from windows topbars I have glitches on window decorations. So I disable the above option again, reboot but the graphics problems was still there. I tried to uncheck vsync from desktom effects and the resault was all desktop effects to be disabled. Now I cannot re-enable desktop effects any more. But now I can logout and relogin. 3D works fine(glxgears works) but I cannot enable desktop effects. And I think that some effects work, because I see some smooth movements and fade outs when I pass the mouse cursor on kmenu items. My card is ATI radeon HD 4650, and I have the xorg-video-ati driver installed.

Debian Multimedia :: Mouse Cursor Is Disappearing When Not Moving

Mar 22, 2015

My mouse cursor is disappearing when it's not moving, or when I scroll a window with the middle wheel... Then when I move the mouse, the cursor is appearing!

This has started after few things...:

- old video card has died (ati hd4850)
- integrated motherboard video card used (ati hd4250) after solving the black screen (xorg, ati drivers... you know :s )
- since many weeks, computer has not been used before I've plugged a hd7970, solved 1 more time the black screen (.....)

And after many updates + this new video card = cursor is kidding :p

I've tried to change my cursor settings in the GUI config, nothing better.


Problem solved by renaming all cursor files...

Debian Multimedia :: After Suspend - Only Mouse Cursor On Screen

May 16, 2010

I've been trying out suspend occasionally on Debian Testing to see if it works. After the last time though Gnome won't come back up again, I just get a movable mouse cursor and no panels or right-click options even after rebooting. I can switch to text consoles and kill X but starting it again results in the same behaviour. I noticed there have been a few Gnome and Xorg updates lately.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Window Decorations After Upgrade To 11.04?

Apr 28, 2011

I upgraded to 11.04 this morning, and I just flat out have zero window decorations which is a serious problem. This pretty much means that where windows happen to spawn is where they're stuck as I cannot move them ( aside from chrome which has its own I believe. )

This happens in Unity and Gnome-panel, fluxbox remains unaffected. I've completely removed, reinstalled unity and compiz several times now. That's not the problem. I've tried pointing the window decorator to /usr/bin/gtk-window-decorator but I might as well be shouting at a wall for all thats doing.

running unity --reset is have zero results as well. If it matters at all my video card is an ATI HD Radeon 4650, and yes I've uninstalled the proprietary driver and reinstalled it ( I get the same results with the open source driver ). Also if it makes any difference I'm running 64 bit.

Ubuntu :: Window Decorations Keep Disappearing With Compiz

May 28, 2011

I'm running Compiz with the Classic desktop in Ubuntu 11.04. I've noticed that doing the slightest thing will make the window decorations disappear...enabling desktop cube, clicking the menu icon in the titlebar, whatever. I'm running two GTX 570s (not in SLI), could this be an nvidia driver problem or something else?

In ccsm window decorations, kde comparability, OpenGL and composting are all checked. Even tried as a different user after rm'ing the compiz-1 folder.

Composting using Kwin works fine.

Debian :: Change Mouse Cursor Size?

Jun 20, 2011

I have been trying for quite some days to change the size and theme of the cursor . I was expecting that there be something in preferences in GNOME v2 but is not there (Is there some enhancement there in GNOME v3?) Anyways, after googling quite a bit, I came across a tip to change the the cursor theme. sudo update-alternatives --config x-cursor-theme The thing to do here is choose some alternative theme and logout and login back.


Press enter to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number: I haven't been able to find how to change cursor sizes as well and what the current size is? I did find another command xrdb -query but that also doesn't seem to be much helpful either :-

Debian Multimedia :: Windows Will Not Respond To Mouse Clicks?

Oct 11, 2010

It's been a long time since this started, and unfortunately I don't remember when this happened first. It only happens to Iceweasel and Icedove I guess. (I'm not sure!)

Used to happen in GNOME, now the same problem in Fluxbox.

The exact problem, is that when I have Iceweasel or Icedove open, and I'm using them, suddenly when I click nothing happens. But, if I use the keyboard it'll work... When this happens to Iceweasel or Icedove, the whole window manager becomes useless... When I want to close the windows, nothing happens, etc. Only the keyboard will work... Sometimes when I right-click on the navigation toolbar in Iceweasel, or somewhere like that, it'll work, and I'll be able to work for a few minutes... Then this will happen again, and usually, this time right-clicking on the toolbar and those areas will not work either... Even if I close the windows, the window manager will still not respond to mouse clicks... I don't understand what the problem is, but whatever it is, it's very annoying!

Ubuntu :: Mouse Glitches And Moves Erratically When Holding Keyboard Key?

Mar 2, 2011

I first noticed this problem when trying to play a first person shooter game. If I hold a key down such as "w" the mouse glitches and moves incredibly erratically when I try to look around. This happens outside of the games as well. What is the solution for this?I'd really like to be able to play an fps game.I have tried disabling compiz as well as turning off the "disable trackpad while typing" option as well.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Moving Mouse Cursor To Right Edge Of Screen Makes It Disappear?

Apr 1, 2010

I have two monitors set up on my Asus N61J laptop, but have a weird problem:When I move the mouse to right-hand edge of the Left (Primary) screen, it disappears. To get it back, I have to either keep moving it to the next screen, or move it over something that will cause it to change shape.It also happens if I move it to the left-hand edge the Right (Secondary) screen. Anyone have any ideas as to how I can fix this? It's a little annoying, as it makes it hard to select the Logout/Shutdown/Status menu

Ubuntu :: Stuttering Window Dragging - Drag Windows Around Cursor Shudders And Shakes The Wondows Won't Move Smoothly

Apr 21, 2011

I'm fairly new to ubuntu and I've been messing around with customizing my desktop/UI over the past week or so and I must have messed something up. After I got sick of how slow Wallpapoz was to change backgrounds between workspaces (I'm using GNOME) I turned on the Wallpaper plugin in Compiz and turned off the nautilus desktop. That worked great for the backgrounds but now whenever I try to drag windows around the cursor shudders and shakes and the wondows won't move smoothly. I eventually get them to where I want them to go but it's very annoying.

So far, I have re-enabled the nautilus desktop and reinstalled nautilus with synaptic, neither of which did anything.

OpenSUSE :: After Applying The Latest Wine Update Mouse Cursor In Wine Windows Is Now Purple/magenta/pink

Ubuntu / Apple :: Glitches When Moving Windows On 10.04?

Apr 17, 2010

I've just installed 10.04 64bit on my iMac 27" i7 and before fighting with keyboard, mouse, audio. I'd like to share with you a strange behavior of the screen refresh speed, color depth and/or maybe a performance issue with the ATI. It's happening with all the resolutions. The windows borders are "cut" when moving or scaling them, the login screen seems to have a low color depth (as banding issues) and it appears slowly from top to bottom of the screen... for example, when I open the synaptic and the system ask for the password, I can see a very slow fading effect to dark screen.

I've made a full update then install the ATI proprietary drivers (from the ubuntu repositories). Basically I'd love to hear that my problem is a driver issue but it seems that 10.04 comes with the very last drivers from ATI. Does someone experience such a behavior? Does somebody know how to enhance it?

Debian :: Fast Mouse Scroll Up / Down Changes Active Window

Aug 12, 2015

Fresh install of Debian 8.1, have not changed a single setting anywhere. Was scrolling in the web browser and noticed that if I scrolled up or down fast enough the active window changes. Using kde as the desktop environment. Also this has nothing to do with the browser as it happens with anything I have open. Heck trying to scroll in console and having a document open just flips between the two of them. Only way this does not happen is if I scroll slow enough.

Debian Multimedia :: Avconv - Two Pass Encoding MOV To WEBM Not Working

Ubuntu Multimedia :: VLC Mp3 Glitches On First Seconds Of Playback?

Aug 8, 2010

On almost each mp3 file I try to play, VLC will "lag" during the first seconds. There may be some screeching noise. It looks like vlc can't keep up with the bitrate, and it "skips" some bits.

This doesn't happen with totem (the default media player).
