Fedora :: Setting Up One Independent Monitor And One Clone Pair?
Jun 1, 2010
Fedora RedHat Enterprise 5 X version 7.1.1
I've been digging around for a while to try and come up with some solutions, and I'm finally caving and asking for help.I have two PCIe nvidia cards, each with one DVI and two displayport outputs. I know it's a gigantic mess right now as I've been experimenting a lot. If someone can suggest a basic skeleton xorg.conf for one x-screen on GPU-0, one display on GPU-1 cloned onto ANOTHER display on GPU-1 (preferably with a different frequency), it would be much appreciated.
I think the settings in /etc/X11/xconf.org are wrong. I do know what the settings should be and have SSH access, (root plus password). Being new to linux I cannot figure out how to save the file after editing. I have been using: vi /etc/X11/xconfig.org to get to the file, but haven't been able to save the file.
the edit and save commands I need, I hate to do an entire install since this is about my 6th install.
I have installed Fedora 15 but find that there is no option for setting the Refresh Rate in Display Settings. This is needed since when I set the Screen Resolution to 1024 x 768, the vertical scroll bar goes out of the screen.
I have laptop with bluetooth and I bought PS3 bluetooth remote. In windows this remote is working with EventGhost and I would like to use it in Fedora as well. This remote has to be paired without a pin code, which is how I paired it in windows.In Fedora, however, there is no such option "no pin" when using a standard way to connect bluetooth device.How can I pair this remote in Fedora?
My monitor is in the process of making the jump to the after life. This means I will have to get a new one soon. Since it will be a larger one in size and resolution I need to set it up accordingly. What do I need to do to setup my new monitor, whatever type it will be?
I run Jaunty 64-bit I have an nVidia 8500GT card with driver version 195.30 Now I use a resolution of 1280 x 1024 (5:4) My xorg.conf file looks like this:
Using Debian Squeeze LCD Monitor: Hp w19e The native resolution is 1400 x 900. Dimensions: width 16 inches height 10 1/8 inches
I have been searching out information on DPI settings and am unsure about a few things. What DPI setting do I need to set for my monitor? Is there only one DPI setting that is right for a monitor or is this adjustable? How does DPI relate to resolution? Can I increase or decrease the font size by adjusting the DPI setting? Does adjusting the DPI affect the quality of the font?
It has been working fine until today where I've been trying to get a application installed that I used on fedora12 ok called SecureCRT. It looks like it was not running because of a python lib. My system has libpython2.7.so and it wants 2.4. The developers for SecureCRT said they have not written it for F15 yet but will for next release but try install with nodeps and symlink 2.4 to 2.7. This did not work. I copied libpython2.4.so.1.0 and a link to libpython2.4.so from my old F12 box onto the new one and the app started working a treat but no I've noticed that yum no longer works and can only think its this. I have removed the the 2.4 files but still nothing. the error I get from yum is:
yum Could not find platform independent libraries <prefix> Could not find platform dependent libraries <exec_prefix> Consider setting $PYTHONHOME to <prefix>[:<exec_prefix>] 'import site' failed; use -v for traceback There was a problem importing one of the Python modules required to run yum. The error leading to this problem was: No module named yum Please install a package which provides this module, or verify that the module is installed correctly.
It's possible that the above module doesn't match the current version of Python, which is: 2.4.6 (#1, Mar 23 2010, 12:56:48) [GCC 4.4.3 20100127 (Red Hat 4.4.3-4)] If you cannot solve this problem yourself, please go to the yum faq at: [URL] How do I fix this and is it possible to have both versions?
I have CentOS installed on my laptop. I hooked up my TV via VGA and it works, just not as I'd like it to. The left side (on the tv) is cut off, like the image is justified too far left. I want it to be centered, but I also want to use a different resolution. You see, I use a netbook, and thus my laptop screen is tiny, meaning some things cant fit in the same window without scrolling. I want my TV to fix that for me.
Fedora 11 I have tried just about everything in webmin, the current one I am working with is openswan, and I get this error: ipsec newhostkey --configdir /etc/ipsec.d --output /etc/ipsec.secrets ipsec rsasigkey: key pair generation failed: "-8037"
My boss would like to have our employees connect to our linux server, then access their personal computers to work when they are unable to be in the office. Everyone else in the office uses winblows and they are unwilling to try anything else no matter what the benefit. The most important one is the CAD guy, we need him to work on drawings from school or his latest flings house and I am just running out of steam. how to fix this error or radically change my approach, I will try or do anything.
I have two monitors, the internal LCD of the laptop, and an external 23". It is working well, but sometimes dialog boxes pop up on the laptop screen inconveniently. The Gnome panel is on the big screen. For example, Firefox is running on the "main" external big screen, I select Edit|Preferences and the dialog box comes up on the laptop screen. 9.04 didn't do this. Is there a primary monitor setting or something to fix this?
I'm having problems setting the primary display in my Linux environment. I tried following the instructions here which seems to be working for everyone but it didn't work for me. In my /etc/gnome-settings-daemon/xrandr folder, I edited the monitors.xml file as well. It looks like this:
After upgrading to 11.04, I've been experiencing this weird issue with my monitor. Every time I reboot or turn the monitor on, the colors in Ubuntu are all wrong -- really green. If I go into my monitor's control panel and go to the "Input Color Format" setting and switch it from YPbPr to RGB things go back to normal.The problem is that I can't seem to save this setting. Every time the monitor is turned off it goes back to the wrong setting. I never had this issue before so it makes me think it may have something to do with the upgrade to Natty. The monitor is a Dell SP2208WFP and it's connected to my computer through an HDMI port. I use the Intel video driver.
I have an ASUS 1000HE laptop running Lucid 10.04 (Desktop not netbook version) which I have connected to an external display (LCD). I don't intend to use the laptop by itself anymore therefore I have configured the display properties to turn off the laptop display and use the external display as primary. However, when the PC enters 'locked mode' or the display powers down after a defined period of time (as set in the properties) when I wake the PC and the display, it turns the laptop monitor back on .... switches the laptop screen to primary display (i.e. with the panels etc displayed on it) and extends the desktop to the external display! The only thing I can then do is go back into the configuration utility and turn the laptop monitor off again and boom, everything is fine and dandy displaying on the external display again! I don't really want to have to do this every time I come back to the PC after it has been locked nor do I want to write a script (if it can be avoided) to deal with it!
I have finally decided to reach out for help because I've been messing around for 3 days with xorg.conf and I'm a beginner and not getting it right. What I want to do is to use only my external monitor (1920x1200) via DisplayPort when my computer is docked. And then my laptop display (1280x800) when undocked. I am using Ubuntu 10.04.
I have setup System->Preference->Monitor: Unchecked <same image in all monitors>, turned off laptop display, and set External monitor to 1920x1200. After doing this everything works when in Xwindows. The resolution is correct when I am docked, and when I am undocked it defaults to my laptop display.
The ONLY problem with using the System->Preferences->Monitor is that when I start up the computer when docked the external monitor goes to the incorrect (laptop screen) resolution at the initial login screen. After I login the resolution corrects itself but it's messy with reinitialization of the screen and my icons being all messed up. I think this happens because these settings only take effect after logging in.
I believe I have to edit the xorg.conf to get my setup working at the login screen. Can someone please tell me how to this.
My system boots in 1024x768 screen resolution. I'd like to change it to 1280x1024 for all users. I can change the setting to 1280x1024 and it's persistent between sessions, but is reset back to 1024x768 on reboot. In the old days, I used to edit xorg.conf to set the the mode I want, but now there's no xorg.conf. I created one using
but this created an xorg.conf which has no modeline settings at all. The file just looks like a template. Here's what I got:
I'm new to fedora (still trying it out) but have many years of experience on other distributions -- mostly gentoo. Anyway, I'm wondering if someone can tell me what all is needed to clone a fedora install. I cloned the partitions, updated fstab with real device node entries (removed all the UUID stuff), and modified grub.conf with the same changes (as well as all the normal/misc changes needed in /etc for things like hostname, network, ethx naming, etc). However when I try to boot it complains that it cant find the old UUID.
I thought this might be specified in the initrd but I uncompressed it and couldn't find any reference to the uuid anywhere. Where does fedora keep this UUID information at? Right now I'm just trying to clone a mythdora box to another one but in the past I've configured a single gentoo install and cloned it on dozens of other computers.
I have a dual boot of winxp and fedora 12 on a sata laptop hdd in an external USB enclosure. I need to use the hdd for something else, so I want to create a clone image of the drive that I can later restore to a different hdd I put into the enclosure. What is the best method of doing this? Can I boot up into Linux on my external and create a single cloned image and save that image to the internal hdd on my computer? If so how do I do this? Is it a native function of Fedora or do I have to install a separate program?
my laptop screen has 1900x1280 (native resolution) and my second monitor has 1600x1080
After browsing the forums and messing around with drivers I managed to get the resolution up to 1600x1080 (from 1000x800 at install) on the laptop screen. No luck at all with the second monitor. I currently have it connected with both VGA and DVI.
my understanding is I need to use twin view to setup the second monitor. I've read several of the earlier posts but haven't been able to get it to work. Here is my current xorg.conf file:
I have two identical 73 GB Scsi ulta320 scsi drives, Fedora web server is install on one drive with all web files and etc. I wish to make an exact clone of the drive that will boot and run everything as the current drive does now. Is there a download of a program I could download or purchase that would boot and make an exact clone to do the above.
I am currently running x86_64 F14. I am replacing the HDD(s) with one SSD and one HDD. What I want to do is a fresh install but pull all of the packages over from current install. I am planning on backing up /home and all of that so I can just rsync it. One of the issues though is that I currently use LVM. LVM does not support TRIM yet for the SSD. So I was just going to use ext4 and an extended partition for all of my filesystems. Can I just make a kickstart file that will have all of my current installed packages in it and pass that to the install? Seems like I remember that from my RHCE class. Sadly I don't use kickstart enough to remember.
I recently installed openSuse 11.2 with KDE4.3...When I try to pair my phone, the bluetooth manager finds my phone. However when I try to connect it says "your phone doesnt support input". My phone is set to "discoverable" (ie. visible to all). But, it just wont work.I had it working on previous systems. But not this time.
I thought I had a handle on Enigmail based on my playing on a test machine. I have run across one perplexing problem on my "production" PC.
Ubuntu 10.04 Thunderbird 3.04 Enigmail 220.127.116.11
I have five email accounts configured in Thunderbird. I configured 2 of the accounts successfully with individual key pairs. I have a key pair for a third account which I created on a test machine, exported to a file (public and secret keys) and imported on the production machine.When I walk through the OpenPGP setup wizard to the point of selecting a key for the email account I do not find the key which I imported. They key does show in the key management tool.
I have two identical servers, one has RHEL 5 and Zimbra installed and the other is currently not really doing anything. Both have hardware RAID (Adaptec) set to RAID10, identical hard drives, etc. The RHEL/Zimbra machine is set up with LVM2. Is it possible for me to hook them up on the secondary NICs and boot the second machine with Knoppix or something else, and easily tell it to duplicate the first machine onto the second, down to the last bit, or do I need to make all the partitions beforehand and dd each one separately?
This tutorial is meant for Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, but it might work in earlier or later versions as well. I wrote this tutorial mostly because it took me a full day of work using lots of help from people on #mpd and #pulseaudio from the FreeNode IRC server.The goal is to get the MPD daemon working using PulseAudio, but without it being dependent on the X server or a session. To do that we must configure PulseAudio to run in system-wide daemon mode (which is not recommended by the developers, but in this case we do not have a choice). This means it will be using the /etc/pulse/system.pa config file instead of the usual /etc/pulse/default.pa. We must also make sure the appropriate user/group permissions are set, or PulseAudio will be rejecting the connections.The result will be an interrupt-less music environment, not dependent on the X server. Meaning we can for example log out and log in without the music having to stop for even a second. Switching TTYs (Ctrl+Alt+Fx) will also keep the music playing (not possible by default). All that and PulseAudio will still be able to detect and configure all your devices automatically.
Instructions: Make sure you add your username to the following system groups: pulse, pulse-access and audio.Do that by going to System --> Administration --> Users and Groups.Click the unlock button (the one with a picture of some keys), then click Manage Groups. In the list of groups that pops up, for each of the previously mentioned groups click "Properties" and select all the users that you want to have this functionality.
I'm buying a new memory stick online, but on the page I'm buying it from, it says "OS Required: Microsoft Windows XP, Apple MacOS X 10.1.2, Microsoft Windows Vista / 7" so I'm wondering does this mean it won't work in Linux (Ubuntu)? Because i thought that flash drives were independent of OS.
