Fedora :: Desktop Is Off The Edge Of The Screen?

Oct 28, 2010

I put together a little computer recently to hook to a TV.The problem I'm having is that when I start the computer up and get to the desktop... the desktop is off the edges of the screen. I checked the resolution and it's 1920x1080.I can't see the panels my applications menu, as they're both off the edge of the screen. Is there anything that can be done to correct this? Also, the TV has no settings to correct this problem.

OpenSUSE :: Desktop Cube Switch With Mouse Cursor On Screen Edge?

Mar 29, 2011

In KDE I'm using KWin as windows manager and somewhere in the configuration I defined that KDE should rotate the desktop cube to the left or the right each time I move my mouse pointer to the far left or right of the screen.If I keep it there for about a second it rotates the desktop cube to the next desktop.I once activated this but find this very frustrating when I'm trying to reach buttons on the same side. So I want to disable this feature but I can't find it anywhere. I can't remember where that option was that activated this feature.

Ubuntu :: Cursor Drags Itself Towards The Screen Edge?

Jul 12, 2010

a few days ago i had posted a note expressing my disgruntled reactions about numerous bugs in 10.04. since then i have been typing a good amount of on OO writer. and this has thrown up more issues with 10.04. after every few minutes of typing, pointer simply drags itself to one side of the screen ! sometimes this is towards the right end, sometimes towards the lower left etc. when i try to move it away from the edge, there is constant pulling back effect and it drags itself to the edge of the screen the moment i stop dragging in another direction. i had experienced this before but it didn't seem serious so i left it at that.
now doing any typing work is fast becoming irritating. the problem of course is rectified by a re-boot using which i am able to do using the keyboard. needless to say i had never experienced this problem with earlier ubuntu versions. comments anyone ? am i the only one with this issue ? how do i file a bug report ?

Slackware :: Mouse Pointer Gets Stuck On The Lower Right Hand Edge Of Desktop

Jul 10, 2011

I've got a very weird behaviour with my brand-new Slackware64 13.37 KDE 4.5.5 system. I've so far just installed some basic software from sbopkg and the fglrx-driver.

Whenever I pass the red line as seen in the attached snapshot from within the marked area, my mouse pointer gets stuck at the line for roughly one second and then moves on.

Approaching from the outside this does not happen and if I'm staying inside the area, it moves normally as it does at the rest of my desktop.

Turning on/off compositing does not change this, as well as removing the widgets from the panel or locking them. I always get stuck there.

I found out that it has to do with the setting of my external screen via D-Sub. If I switch back to my laptop screen as main, the problem disappears.

OpenSUSE :: Kde Screen Edge Thingy Once For Firefox With Another Application

Jun 9, 2011

so have used the kde screen edge thingy once for Firefox with another application, but now every time that i launch Firefox it uses the half window option and have to maximise it every time. Is there any way to tell KDE that I wish to use maximised screen every time that Firefox launches.

Have tried putting Firefox window to middle so screen edge would maximise window, then close Firefox that it would save that setting, but not listening. Does it maybe have something to do with Kwin?

Ubuntu :: Top Panel Icons Disappear Behind The Right Edge Of Screen

Oct 14, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 Gnome: I have about 5 PCs at home, and all of them have this problem.

The default ubuntu install places top panel icons in the following order:

.... john_doe, power |

The power button completely scrolls off the edge, and half of the user-id scrolls off as well, to look like this:

..................... john_|

I suspect this is a very common problem. How do I combat it?

OpenSUSE Install :: Windows Pop To Full Screen When Bumped Into Top Edge?

May 17, 2011

i recently bought a pre-Win7 loaded netbook, and soon discovered anytime i moved a window and even accidently bumped the top edge of the screen the window would instantly pop to full screen side to side and top to bottom..i figured it was just another Redmond 'innovation' and just got in the habit of not bumping the top..but, now on KDE i see exactly the same behavior...is this something new in 4.6 or, is it just on this machine (maybe a BIOS intercept) or what the heck is it??

i have looked for and not found a way to turn off this abomination in user interface 'innovation' in either openSUSE 11.4 or Lose7..(i'm kinda tired of having to click it down from full screen--this is a MULTI-threaded system and i do not use just one app at a time..)

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Some Applications Not Starting - Virtualbox Just Flickers The Edge Of The Screen

Oct 24, 2010

I have a strange problem with some applications in 10.10. This applies so far to virtualbox and skype. When I try to start them, nothing happens. Virtualbox just flickers the edge of the screen. Virtualbox has worked before, and i'm reluctant to delete it as I have another machine installed. Skype has never worked, and even when I have reinstalled, the same happens.

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 :: Sidebar Thing Very Erratic - Move Mouse To The Left Edge Of The Screen - It Doesn't Always Appear

May 3, 2011

I'm not sure what to call the semi-transparent sidebar with a random collection of unconfigurable icons, but I don't think it's working properly.

1. When I move my mouse to the left edge of the screen, it doesn't always appear. Sometimes I have to move my mouse back and forth, back and forth, several times.

2. What it's doing right now is even worse... it appears, but as soon as I move the mouse a *little* bit to the right to actually click an icon, it disappears.

What is causing this? Surely it's a bug? How do I make the sidebar the absolute top priority for the screen edge so that it always catches it and appears? how do I configure it? I can't right-click on the sidebar itself. I can right-click and remove some icons. Other icons, like the grayed-out (but still active) "recent files" thing cannot be removed.

Fedora Hardware :: Lenovo Thinkpad Edge And BCM43224?

Jul 28, 2011

I bought a thinkpad Edge 13" with AMD CPU (NV338) and installed f15 on it. First boot : no WiFi...


lspci -n
08:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:0576] (rev 01)
14e4:0576 is actually BCM43224 broadcom chip, supposed to work with broadcom-wl driver (non-free...)

So I installed broadcom-wl + kmod-wl, reboot, check if it really get installed :


lsmod | grep wl
wl 1954479 0
lib80211 4103 1 wl

Ok but... no WiFi interface visible... Few dmesg :


dmesg |grep radio
[ 22.289176] thinkpad_acpi: radio switch found; radios are enabled
[ 22.310166] thinkpad_acpi: rfkill switch tpacpi_bluetooth_sw: radio is blocked
(wifi toogle seems not working btw)

Fedora :: Nano - Editing Lines That Go Past The Window Edge?

Nov 22, 2009

I noticed a problem when editing files with nano. This problem happens if the terminal window that I run nano from is not wide enough to show the full line.By way of example below is part of my grub.conf


title Fedora (
root (hd0,13)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz- ro root=UUID=47e4c448-8087-4ec6-a67b-814845a598db noiswmd LANG=en_US.UTF-8 SYSFONT=latarcyrheb-sun16 KEYBOARDTYPE=pc KEYTABLE=us vga=0x370 nouveau.modeset=0
initrd /boot/initramfs-

If we assume the code box above is the size of the terminal window, if I edit anything past what will show as the $ sign in nano, it will automatically add a carriage return. So if we take the kernel line above, if say the screen shows at the end root=UUID=$, if say I were then to add 00 the end of the UUID, it will move everything starting from root=UUID= to a new line. Is there some wrap feature that is enable in Fedora for nano?

Fedora :: Increase The Size By Pulling The Edge It Locks Up The Computer?

Jun 8, 2011

First, I upgraded to F15. All went smooth. No problem. But if I pull up a terminal in KDE via menu->utilities->Terminal, I get a terminal that shows only 3 lines. If I try to increase the size by pulling the edge it locks up the computer. Functions otherwise. This is Gnome Terminal 3.0.1. X terminal works fine. So does Konsole. But not the above application from the menu.

Fedora Servers :: How To Setup A Intel Xenon Power Edge 1900

Aug 31, 2009

I need to setup a Intel Xenon power edge 1900 server, which fedora version (10 or 11) suits it best and whether I should go for 64bit or 32bit (If I go with 64 bit some applications wont support it). I also have another issue, currently on another Intel Xenon power edge 1900 server on which Fedora 9 32bit version is installed, tough the server has 8GB ram, fedora can access only 3.2 GB. How can I solve this issue and will it repeat in the new server where I install fedora(10 or 11).

Fedora :: Install Kazam Screen Desktop Recorder On F15?

Jun 1, 2011

I need a screen recorder - but today I did. Being a quite recent Fodora convert I had a quick squint about the forums and found nothing but problems with the more well known desktop recorders or commandline ffmeg / mencoder solutions.A name that did crop up a few times is KAZAM - an Ubuntu Launchpad project... hmmm I thinks - shouldn't be too hard to get up on F15 being a python script... this Fedora solution is based on the Debian howto found here: [URL] And here it is:

1) You will need a few tools and dependencies 1st:


sudo yum install bzr intltool python-keybinder gnome-python-rsvg python-xlib python-distutils-extra python-pycurl x264-libs

2) Grab the code branch from launchpad by bzr:


sudo bzr branch lp:kazam

3) change into Kazam folder and install:


cd kazam
sudo python setup.py install
4) Job done!

You'll now have an Applications -> Sound & Video -> Kazam Screencaster shortcut in your menu Once you have started a recording (with audio if you like and have pulse setup) you can pause / stop from the bottom panel applet and can then save the MKV to disk for or open further editing. The "Edit with" option does not seem to be working yet - at least not on my machine but that is no major hardship

Fedora :: High Quality Screen Casts - Desktop Recording ?

Fedora :: 13 Graphics - Screen Became Unusable When Enabled Desktop Effects

I attempted to install the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental package and my screen became unusable when I enabled desktop effects. I then uninstalled mesa-dri-drivers-experimental and tried to install the akmod before realizing that my card isn't supported yet. Now I can't seem to do anyting to get my screen back. I removed the blacklist on nouveau, but my screen still goes black after fedora boots. Is there any way I can just get things back to default without reinstalling the whole system?

Fedora :: Enable Desktop Effects Drop MI To Login Screen (KDE)

Fedora :: Customizing The Login Screen - Sound - Default Desktop Environment

Aug 27, 2010

I have just installed Fedora (13) for the first time. It's great ! So thanks to all its developers !

I managed to do many tweaks I wanted to, in no small part thanks to this forum, but here's one that eludes me and my google-fu.

I'd like to customize the login screen (if I grokked correctly, that's gdm). I already saw how to change the background or how to enable automatic login, but what I'd like to do is this :

1. Disable that rather annoying "pong" sound when I select a user,

2. Set a default desktop environment. Gnome seems to be the default environment selected in the drop-down menu, but me, I'd like for it to be XFCE.
