My system slows much down so that i cannot use it at all when am watching any online videos or movies am using firefox 3.6.13 .
My spec is: intel celeron 2.53 Ghz 512 Mb ram ubuntu 10.04 on 40 GB seagate ide harddisk Windows Xp on 80 GB western digital ide harddisk in dual boot.
And also my browser cannot open login page of yahoo site and some time it waits saying waiting for s7.addthis.com, or waiting for ad.yieldmanager.com like some thing when i am trying to open some sites
i tried kde settings: disabled screen saver, disabled monitor power management. nothing worked. even i tried to find something in yast -- no luck. actually screen goes black after about 10 mins of inactivity which is annoying while watching in ex. videos. playing kaffeine is ok - i think it's because kaffeine makes "fake mouse movements". suse 11.3, linux 184.108.40.206-0.1-default x86_64, kde: 4.4.4 (kde 4.4.4) "release 2". adm athlon dual core 4450e (2.3ghz), 2 gb ram, geforce 9600 gso 512 with nvidia driver.
lately while converting video to dvd with ffmpeg or devede, watching multiple videos online, or restarting dbus from command, my laptop freezes and cannot recover. i simple have to do a hard shutdown and restart the laptop. sometimes when it freezes, the and hdd led will steadily blink once per second.
I just got fedora 13 today and put it on a slightly older computer to mess around with it, and two things I realized.
1. I installed Flash player through a program called easyLiving, but when i play flash games online like on armorgames, everything will play fine, but sound will play about 2 seconds late with actions.
2. I can't play .wmv files from my MP3 player, I found some codes online and installed them, but now it just looks like I have 3 different audio players in mozilla and I'm not sure which kind to enable, and I still can't play .wmv movies. (I actually believe that problem 1 is unrelated, because I noticed it before I started downloading different audio players.)
My system froze when watching a flash video and I had to do a hard reset. Now when I boot into ubuntu I can't open the software centre or the update manager. Is there a way to check what's wrong or a way to reinstall everything from terminal? Synpatic still opens and works.
I have installed the latest version of flash player and watching videos on ..... and other live streaming pages should work, but when i select a video it keeps loading with out playing the video or showing any progress in the loading bar. and i dont have any problems with my internet connection
With fc12 vpnc starts allows me to connect to my work site then everything works fine til I try and start a remote desktop connections to a windows client use tsclient. All I get is a blackscreen and my laptop is hung.
At work without the vpnc it works fine if I start the vpnc from nm it performs the exact same way and I get the blackscreen.
I have disable selinux.I also disabled the firewall
there was another gentlemen on here with the same issue.
The only way out is a hard reboot and there are no messages in the logs that say there were any problems.
This happens nearly anytime I watch any relatively lengthy flash video on ..... or other online flash players. I watch the video, and the audio is fine for a few seconds, but then the audio cuts off as the video continues to play. Sometimes, when I move the scrollbar of the screen/pause and replay the movie, it starts back up again for a few seconds then shuts off or plays the audio I just heard.
I just started using Linux today on an inherited acer aspire one laptop. got myself tied into my home's wifi, but now i need a flash player so I can play games and watch video. Adobe has 5 different options for linux and I don't have any idea which one to pick.
running kubuntu 9.10 karmic koala, and my sound settings -at first glance- seem to be in order... a strange thing is occurring, is my machine haunted? my sound works when:
a. the machine boots up b. files are played in dragon player c. the machine shuts down
my sound does not work when:
1. i try to play streaming flash videos online (e.g. videos videos show the image but no sound will play) 2. the same goes for vlc media player: images yes, sound no. 3. i use skype *edit: additional problem*
i made no changes, that i know of, to my machine before this started happening. one day everything was working fine and i turned off my machine to go to sleep. the next day, i turn on my machine, and surprise, the sound doesn't work in some instances.
I recently installed Ubuntu 9.10 and I've been having problems with flash player. The problem occurs when I'm trying to play a video clip on You Tube or on similar sites. Video clips do not play properly, videos run slowly and with many interruptions, while on the other hand the sound is excellent and my internet connection is OK, only the quality of the video is poor. I am using: intel celeron 1800MHz 512 SD ram ATI Radeon 9550 Hardware Drivers displays no drivers for my graphic card...
I've just been looking at a simple but well done flash based graphic on the bbc. [URL]..it is about supercomputing (btw, isn't it great to see that linux is uber alles in that area of computing). My question is simple: How would one make some interactive online graphic like this on linux using open-source tools? ideally, I would also like it to work on the client side using only open-source tools. I've heard a little about openlazlo, but I don't really know what it does.
I have just switched from F10 to F12 via a fresh install. To be honest I am having difficulties getting around with the new release. For starters, watching movies causes one of my CPUs to go 100% when full screen. As you can guess watching movies doesn�t go smooth. It happens on every possible player. It doesn�t matter if I switch on or off compositing.
Running Ubuntu 10.10 on a Gateway laptop (new). When I select "shutdown," it does a restart instead. All latest updates and additional drivers are installed. I may have upgraded to 10.10 from 10.04 - can't recall now. I have 10.10 on a Toshiba laptop that works fine.
Everything has been working great since January with one exception and that is the power saver mode thingy magig. Whenever I am not using the keyboard or mouse, the screen powers off after 5 minutes. When I am watching a movie. I cannot leave the mouse alone for after five minutes of watching the movie, the screen goes black. I'm not sure if the problem is my Nvidia card or Xorg or what. Any ideas how I can get a hold of this? Let me know what you need as far as diagnostic info. I actually have to leave for about 8 hours so.
"screen tearing" whenever I scroll, watch flash videos, or any videos in general. I first noticed this in Fedora 14, and now I notice the same behaviour in Linux Mint.Does anyone know what might be causing this? My Graphics Card is: Nvidia Geforce GTX 280M (1GB) I'm using Nvidia proprietary drivers. Reading some forums I see that the problem might be related to Compiz. Here's my xorg.conf file (if needed);
i would like to know if there are any good ways to disable and then reenable (the latter is key!) the screensaver so that it doesn't start when i'm watching movies with xine or when i'm watching flash things online like through hulu, videos, or so on. it's relatively simple to have a script run that will turn off the screensaver before starting a certain executable. but what about turning it back on again when the executable closes? and is there any way to detect that flash is running inside a browser window and then disable that temporarily?
I run LXDE with Openbox as WM on Fedora 15. When I watch videos with Totem or VLC, the monitor doesn't register any activity, and goes into power saving mode (goes blank) after a certain amount of time (about 10-15 mins). How can I prevent this from happening? (I just switched over to Fedora from Arch, using GDM and Openbox. I didn't have this problem on that installation, so it's probably not hardware related.)
I want a bandwidth monitor which performs constant monitoring of the ethernet. I want to see how much bandwidth I am spending by opening each website, downloading, etc. A small program which can remain "always on top".
I am using Gkrellm but the problem is it does not updates itself constantly, I mean I have to close/open its eth0 monitoring window to view changes (I am not talking about restarting Gkrellm, only the bandwidth window which shows the daily, monthly bandwidths)
i have a skystar 2.6d card.i set everything in Kaffeine and when i search the channels it finds some but when i click on the channel to watch it nothing appears.even in properties of selected channel the frequency is showed up something else. For example the freq of channel Y is 12345 but in the properties of the channel it shows 57329 without any video pid and audio pid.
I've tried watching ESPN3 on several systems using F14 with no success. Everything runs very slow and after a few seconds, I get a frozen screen and then a white screen. I'm wondering if anyone else is having this problem or is it just me? [URL] Everything else that uses flash seems OK, even HD vids on ......
In Power Manager I set a 5 minutes period of inactivity before turning off the monitor... But in Fedora 11, when I saw movies, the sleep mode didn't come... But in Fedora 13 (programm VLC-player), after 5 minutes, computer come into sleep mode..What do I do to configure Power Manager or another program for watching movies without permanent dragging mouse?))
I was recently looking at the 3D trendalyzer tool that is being pushed i think by google.This tool looks awesome. Does anybody know of any software available in open source that performs similar functions?
I have an init script running as a special build user which performs an automated build that fails with (Too many open files).I updated /etc/security/limits to allow the special user more open files, but that didn't work - the init script still isn't allowed more open files.Here's a demonstration of the problem;
