Debian Multimedia :: Kde4: X Stopped Working - How To Make It To Work

Mar 10, 2011

There seems to be something that has changed in the newest stable Debian - I chose kde4 as my default desktop at installation, and it worked fine. Then I went and changed some options in both /var/run/kdm/kdmrc and /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc, something I have done many times before without problems.

However, when I tried to restart kdm with /etc/init.d/kdm, things didn't come up - no X, no kdm. When I rebooted the machine everything seemed fine, so I thought the problem was solved; but this morning I wanted to change something else - I don't want kdm to remember the last user, and I don't want to see a list of users either. Now dkm and X fail even when I reboot; I also find that /var/run/kdm/kdmrc has disappeared - I am certain I didn't remove it.

The strange thing, when I try /etc/init.d/kdm, I can kdm hanging around all alone in the process list, but no X or greeter. So what is going on - what should I have done instead? And can I repair it? I can of course reinstall the system, but I hate to think that we can't manage better in Linux.

Fedora Networking :: WUSB54g Stopped Working - How To Make It Work

Feb 17, 2010

My wireless adapter stopped working randomly the other day. I think the last time it was working was right before I put the computer into hibernate for the first time. it stopped working even after restarting.modinfo p54usb shows (I'm leaving out information that seems irrelevant because I can't copy and paste without the internet, so I'm typing what I see from another computer)

firmware: isl3887usb
firmware: isl3886usb

dmesg | grep firmware doesn't seem to show any requests for firmware related to it. lsusb shows something like

bus 002 device 001: ID... linux foundation 1.1 root hub
bus 001 device 003: id... linksys wusb54g wireless adapter

[code]....

When I start up, in boot messages I get something like this

WARNING deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/.
WARNING all config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be ignored in a future release

Ubuntu :: Internal Speakers Stopped Working - How To Make It Work

Apr 26, 2011

I've been running Ubuntu on my Dell Studio 1749 laptop since I got it, around 8 months ago.I recently upgraded to Maverick 10.10 64-bit, reformatting and partitioning my hard drive in the process (got rid of windows since I never use it) and it was working perfectly until last Wednesday (22.4.2011). On Wednesday I unplugged my usb headset while in a Skype call to switch to the internal speakers and my computer freaked out, black-screened, and froze. When I rebooted, the internal speakers had stopped working completely, even though the sound works perfectly on both sets of headphones I have.

I've tried most of the fixes that have been presented in other threads and none of them are working, including rebooting the laptop with the headset in. I've tried that with both of my usb headsets, even though I don�t like using the one that it froze on for the exact reason that any time I have audio playing with that headset and it gets unplugged, it black-screens and freezes my laptop. Actually audio doesn�t even have to be playing, sometimes unplugging it even with nothing playing still freezes my laptop. It does it once in a while with my other usb headset, as well, but not every time or anything close to that often.One thread suggested that modifying /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf by appending the following line to the file would work:

Code:

options snd-hda-intel model=dell-m6

But that did nothing at all. Someone else said that they saved a copy of alsa-base.conf and replaced the whole thing with that line, so I did that, with no change. Then I purged alsamixer using

Code:

sudo apt-get purge alsa-base

and

Code:

sudo apt-get purge alsa-utils

Then I rebooted, and reinstalled them, which did not fix the issue. However, it did replace the alsa-base.conf file that I modified which shows me that it actually did purge it. (I was an idiot the first time I tried to purge it and only purged and reinstalled alsa-utils..xD So the file did not get replaced, which was when I realised my mistake) I have NOT modified the new file, although I did copy the contents to a text file in case I need to try that fix again.I should also mention that the speakers do work when first booting up Ubuntu to the log-in screen, both with and without headphones I ran the alsamixer diagnostic at the beginning of all this, here's the link: [URL] And then ran it again after purging and reinstalling alsamixer, here's the new link: [URL] I have tried messing with the settings, disabling the headset, setting the input and output manually to internal speakers while the headset is still plugged in, making sure with GNOME alsa-mixer that the speakers are not muted, rebooting with the headsets in and then unplugging them.

Debian Multimedia :: Wireless Mouse Stopped Working After Dist-upgrade

Sep 30, 2014

I have used a quite obscure device called Cideko AK0b [URL] .... for quite some time now and it has worked perfectly for almost 2 years now, both in Wheezy and in Jessie. However since I made an dist-upgrade a while back the mouse has totally stopped working. The system works through wifi - strangely enough - but everything else works. Keyboard and gamepad buttons. The manufacture says the things doesn't work on linux and so far I have proved them wrong.

But now the mouse is just out right dead no matter what I do. Have looked into mouse autosuspend but no avail so far. My suspicion is systemd but that is as good as any guess.

Running 3.14-2-amd64.

This is my dmesg.

Code:
Select allroot@cryptserv:/home/dencrypt# dmesg | grep Cideko
[    3.158099] usb 6-3: Manufacturer: Cideko Inc.

Debian Multimedia :: Adobe Flash 10 Consistent Way To Make It Work?

Dec 5, 2010

I have the latest version of Debian Lenny AMD64 installed on my brother's computer. I am trying to get Adobe versions of flash to install on his computer. It seems no matter what I do I get the freeware version installed which unfortunately is not up to the task. If I try to remove the freeware version the package manager tells me it needs to remove the gnome as well. How can I keep the gnome and at the same time get Adobe version to install. Yes I have a multimedia repository installed and I tried reinstalling Mozilla Adobe package with no success.

Searching forums did not result in any helpful ideas.Things I have already found out from reading this forum.-I have to purge all freeware version of the Adobe flash plug-in. I can't seem to find a way to do this without removing the gnome desktop. It seems that the plug-in is a dependency for the gnome desktop environment. Yes I want to continue to use the gnome desktop environment. I have to install flashplayer-mozilla package from the Debian multimedia nonfree repository. That I can successfully do, and have done so without success. It installs successfully, but it still shows version 9 of the plug-in. I believe version 9 is the free version. What I would like to use the free version, it's just not compatible with the websites I go to.

Ubuntu :: SCIM Stopped Working, But Ibus Doesn't Work Either?

Mar 6, 2010

upgrading to9.10 I suddenly was unable use SCIM to switch language input methods.After searching around, I discovered that with Ubuntu 9.10 Ibus was being used in place of SCIM. That's all fine and good, but I can't get Ibus to work. Specifically, when I open the Ibus settings pane and add my desired languages, the settings aren't saved when I exit.So I tried switching back to SCIM. I changed my bashrc settings and set the keyboard input in language settings back to SCIM. No nice.Honestly, I just want to be able to swich language input methods--I don't care if I use SCIM or Ibus.

Software :: Vnc Server Used To Work Suddenly Stopped Working With Connection Refused Errors

Feb 22, 2011

I have a machine running with slackware64 13.1 and vnc servers is installed on it. It worked for months until yesterday, when I couldnt connect to the machine remotely.

I have 2 vnc "users" on this machine, root and "user". Each have their own desktop. Root has desktop :1 and user had desktop :2. Simple enough.

VNC servers is started via /etc/rc.d/rc.local with the command:

Code:

Code:

It worked flawlessly. I use the very same configuration on my home server, never had a glitch.

From the "distant" machine, I get this error when I try to connect:

Code:

Unable to connect to VNC server

What has changed so it no longer works? I assume its not a network problem since the machines are all located in my home network and there is no firewall or router in between them.

Debian Multimedia :: Unresponsive Desktop In KDE4 With K3b - Squeeze

Aug 23, 2010

I'm running Squeeze with KDE 4.4.5 in my desktop. Everything seems to be fine, except for some unresponsiveness that is really annoying. The main problem (but this also reflects on other uses, though in a less intense manner) is when K3b is burning or erasing anything (including CD-R and CD-RW). The whole system becomes unusable. Not even a Konsole window can return from a "aptitude search something" query.

I have a Intel i7 920 system with 6GB RAM and two 1.5TB disks. I use an AMD Radeon 4890 video card with their proprietary drivers (at least for now it is the only option). I also have an extra Audigy sound card. I thought that such a system would be enough to have a good desktop experience while multitasking. What might be wrong?

Debian Multimedia :: Squeeze KDE4 Flickering Screen

Dec 22, 2010

I updated my system as usually. Sadly since then my screen flickers every 10 (or so) seconds. It turns black for like 10ms and then back to whatever it showed before. This behavior occurs after some uptime. Haven't measured the flicker-free time span yet but I guess it starts after 15 to 30 minutes.I'm using a up-to-date Squeeze with KDE4 an the nvidia-driver for me GeForceGo. Interesting thing is: It does not flicker while using fluxbox using same xserver.

Debian Multimedia :: Update Manager In KDE4 (Solved)?

Jan 8, 2011

So far I have just used the CLI to upgrade KDE, and I get notified of upgrades once a day, where a popup shows when new upgrades are available. However, when I push the "install upgrades" button, nothing happens. In Gnome, all I had to do was click the update notifier and click install. I am pretty confident the same is posible in KDE4. I have searched the web trying to find a solution, but I can't find anything. I am probably missing some packages. Can someone help me configure:

1. Update intervals for the KDE update manager, and
2. GUI updates for the KDE4 desktop.

Debian Multimedia :: KDE4 Plasma Network Management Not Connecting?

Nov 12, 2010

Got a problem with the plasma network management widget. Let's say I connect to a wireless network at my office called "Network A". I then go home and try connecting to my wireless network, "Network B". Assume each has WEP encryption. When I click on my home network, the wallet-manager pops up first. I enter my password. I then see that instead of adding a new network, it has "Network A" selected for editing. This happens every single time. What is going on here? I don't want a bunch of posts naming WICD either. I want to use the plasma widget because I like it. So what's up with it overwriting other network connections when you try adding a new one?

It is very annoying when sound system was working just fine before and now it suddenly doesn't! Sound like some from windows!
