I did not have any /etc/X11/xorg.conf, so I read on these forums that system-config-display would create one for me. I ran system-config-display and it created an xorg.conf. But now my display is all messed up!! So, I deleted the xorg.conf and nothing changed. Why on earth would the display still be messed up if I deleted the file that was causing it?? Does system-config-display change somethign else?
I have a fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.4 64bit and I have installed the AMD Display drivers for my Radeon HD 5970. Everything seems to be working quite well. I have a multiple monitor setup (1280x1024 monitor and a 1920x1080 monitor).
I have my primary display set to 1920x1080, however when I try to enable the second display, I get a CRTC error that the display is over the maximum (1920x1920). If I enable both monitors at lower resolutions, there is no problem.
I have done a fair bit of reading and have been unable to determine where this maximum is set, or how to change it. I'd like to be able to run both monitors at their native resolutions.
Hi I am new to ubuntu and am having major problems setting my displays up. my setup is a hd TV to the Left of my pc monitor, i have managed to configure catalyst to let me have a main display with the second display being an extension of the first, the problem is i cannot seem to swap my primary display, at the minute my HDTV has all the taskbars and everything on it while my pc monitor is just a blank background, i would like it so i could start a film playing for my children, then drag it across to the HDTV while i can still use my pc in the background.
I am using GeForce 7600 GSNot using the Nvidia X driver message you know... I searched all over, and seen this problem on many searches but no resolve issues.I want to be able to connect my tv, I use to be able to when I first installed Ubuntu and now IdK.
I have the following scenario that doesn't seem to work normally. I have a windows 7 pc from which I am using putty to connect to my other linux servers (all running redhat 5 and 6). So here is the scenario that works and one that does not work. And I'm trying to figure out the one that does not work. Scenario that works:
From windows 7 (putty) I ssh into Linux_Server_1. echo $DISPLAY localhost:10.0
I run xclock and I see it pop up on my windows 7 pc. I am using xming on windows 7 to help me populate the display from linux to windows. One that does not work:
From windows 7 (putty) I ssh into Linux_Server_1. Then from Linux_Server_1 I ssh into Linux_Server_2. echo $DISPLAY <no output>
I try to setup $DISPLAY with localhost:10.0 or 0.0 or even my windows 7 pc ip address:0.0 ....etc Then when I try to run xclock I doesn't work.
I get these error messages: Error: Can't open display: <ip of display>
Also as a side note all our Linux servers are sitting on one subnet. My pc is sitting on another subnet. I use vpn to connect to the subnet where the servers sit from my pc.
I'm testing HTML5 for the first time, using Firefox (beta) 4.0b8 and SeaMonkey (beta) 2.1b1, and its ignoring some CSS. Specifically, I have problems with the <details> tag. (It is nested in a paragraph...I am using it to provide an in-paragraph definition in hopes it can be toggled.)
Firefox only partly supports <details>. It's not supposed to show anything except the content of <summary>, unless you click on <summary>'s content. Instead, it puts a line break before the content of <details>, splitting the paragraph in two peices (which looks silly), without the "closed/open" functionality.
So I tried using "display:inline" in my CSS, but that gets ignored. Just for fun, I also tried "display:hidden" (also ignored) and "display:none" (obeyed).
SeaMonkey doesn't doesn't do anything special with the content of <display>...but it also ignores the same CSS as Firefox.
The only thing I can do to support semantic design is apply "font-style:italic" to all <details> elements.
Granted, you might ask, "why bother using <details> at all. then?" Well, I would like to have <details> for the browsers that support it, with the "font-style:italic" to degrade the page nicely for those that don't (such as for SeaMonkey).
Does anyone know why "display:inline" and "display:hidden" get ignored?
I have configured an instance in AWS EC2. I am trying to set the display back so I can run x apps. I login using ssh -xy -i...
export DISPLAY=XXX.XXX.X.XXX:0.0 echo $DISPLAY to verify xhost + xhost: unable to open display "XXX.XXX.X.XXX:0.0"
I have commented out nolisten tcp as suggested HERE I have modified /etc/gdm/custom.conf as suggested HERE Actually, the last suggested modifying /etc/gdm/gdm.conf, but that file didn't exist, so I added the line: DisallowTCP=false to /etc/gdm/custom.conf I rebooted, and still I get: xhost: unable to open display "XXX.XXX.X.XXX:0.0"
By fiat I must distribute my homedirs across multiple physical disks/partitions. Unfortunately this is not open to discussion so obvious solutions like a lvm home partition are not available to me. The issue: Users created with homedirs on the main home partition (the one created as home during the f13 install) behave as expected, but if I create them on a different partition (home9 for the sake of this example) the users are not able to login (dropped back to login screen), nor run x-apps if su -'d to in a konsole.
If I 'su - <user-on-home9>' in a konsole, I get delivered to the /home9/<user-on-home9> as expected, but x-apps fail with the error: 'cannot open display: :0'. This can be temporarily fixed with the command 'xhost +SI:localhost:<user-on-home9>', but I would rather fix it permanently at the source.
This appears to be an selinux problem from the following.The contexts of the the two rootdirs are the same
% ls -Zd /home /home9 drwxr-xr-x. root root system_u:object_r:home_root_t:s0 /home drwxr-xr-x. root root system_u:object_r:home_root_t:s0 /home9 but when I create the users (using useradd or the gui) their respective contexts differ: % ls -Zd /home/user5 /home9/user6
So, my questions for you selinux experts are 1) is it possible to have homedirs spread across multiple partitions with selinux, and if so, how, 2) Why, even when I manually set the dir/file contexts to match a properly functioning user5 from /home, do users from /home9 still not work (as far as login and x-apps).
I'm trying to install Fedora 13 on my HP dv6 laptop and when I try to use the Use Free Space installation type, I receive a Partitioning Error: Could not allocate requested partitions - not enough free space on disks. Before I started the install, I used the Disk Management utility in Windows 7 to shrink the volume of the C: drive down to 242 GB and leaving 210 GB Unallocated. Here is what the screen looks like when I select Create Custom Layout (also receive the not enough free space error):
I have Dell Laptop 1545 which already installed windows 7 home premium which is also having two partitions one is reserved by the oem and another is for recovery partition and another 200gb i am using for windows 7 now i have left only 80gb hard disk. So I started to install the Fedora 12 in my laptop every thing is going fine but
at the time of creating the partitions iam unable to allocate the partitions the left 80gb i tried to select and tried for custom partition but to my surprise it is giving the following message "Could not allocate requested partitions: not enough free space on disks"
Created abt 16.4 gb free space using Disk Management in vista. I read the sticky on installing from the live cd and did accordingly. Whatever Partition i create first (boot or /), it gets done. However, when tryin to create the 2nd partition, i get "Could not allocate requested partitions:Not enough free space on disks." Cant proceed any further.
I am trying to run a cron job that requires the X server. From the documentation of what I'm trying to do, I see: Code: If it is a cron job, you have to explicitly set DISPLAY to :0 How/where do I do this?
I am going to school for IT Security and will be taking my first Linux class this semester. I have dabbled a little bit in Linux before this but never really had the time to get to involved so I put it off untill now. Now I am forced . Anywho...I just installed Fedora11 (dual booting with Vista home basic) and the first thing that I am trying to tackle is install VMware. I have access to a bunch of Window OS's because of school and would like to create a 'virtual' version of windows for things like iTunes. This way, i have to force myself to use Linux for everything and I can install it on the whole PC. Until then, I am going to dual boot. When I was trying to install VMware, I tried to do it from the Terminal using sudo sh then the file name which is a .bundle file, I typed in the password and it said that my account was not in the 'sudowers' profile or something like that. I read on-line that you can modify who can sudo and who can't in the ect/sudoers file but if has an 'X' at the top right and I can't open it. It says 'Could not display "/etc/Sudoers". I tried to use visudo in the terminal and it says that permission is denied.
ive done countless google searches and forum searches with all the same results all the time. Is there anyone who can tell me what file to edit in order to display? Ive tried editing the /etc/motd file and no luck. I tried alot of other stuff too.
I update system today. Just before , everything is normal. Once it finished , I found that my KDE can't display some characters. I am a Chinese user. The English words are normal,. Just some Chinese characters can't be displayed. When I refreshed the browser, they can be displayed again but some of them are font default and some of them are font Yahei. And they are displayed messed together. It is not pretty. AND it is not only in browser, anywhere displayed Chinese characters looks the same as browser. How to change them back to default font as one font not two types of font messed together?
Upgraded to Fedora 11 and my display aspect ratio is now broken. I have a 23" Acer screen, but in Gnome its auto detecting as a 20" Acer display and the aspect ratio is wrong and the display grainy. I read the FAQs and am trying out some suggestions. Created an xorg.conf file in the correct place, contains the correct monitor settings but my display is still broken. Q. How do I force the kernel to read the xorg.conf file ?(PS: I'm kind of a newbie, have only come back to linux after a few years of using Windows)
I'm running PyMOL version 1.2r2 on Fedora 12 with python2.6.
Only for a second or two will molecular models display correctly in the PyMOL viewer, and then the image becomes distorted. As I rotate the model, it displays correctly, but then almost immediately after I stop moving the model, it becomes distorted again.
The attached images show the display before and after the distortion.
This is some of the information that the PyMol program prints as it loads.
Every other time my system comes out of hibernation, I see the blue Fedora screen loading like the computer is powering back on, and all of the sudden the screen goes blank, as if it shut itself back off. The funny thing is the power button is still on, but there is no display. Has anyone heard of this issue before. I'm not sure what to try to get it fixed
I want to change the default behavior of my display hotkey combo (Fn+F7). I can do this in KDE, but in Gnome, the gnome-settings-daemon cycles through the options. Problem is, the option I want is not there. I want the laptop display on the right and the external display on the left. I know how to use xrandr to change this or to use System > Preferences > Display, but I want to use my hotkey combo. I see two ways to do this. Find the configuration file that selects the options that are cycled and manually edit it, or disable this hotkey combo for the gnome-settings-daemon and use my own script in /etc/acpi/actions, etc/acpi/events for the hotkey combo. Currently the gnome-settings-daemon intercepts the hotkey combo, so I can't use my own script. Anyone know anything about this, or do I need to file a bug report?
i did not search in depth for this, as google spit a whole of different aswers at me, making not much sense at all. So here we go: Is it possible to install Fedora on a PC which has no keyboard nor mouse nor display attached to it? And if so plx give a link or a short description how to do it. I read about kickstart, but this was all a little wacky.
