General :: Fedora 13 - Cannot Get Any Of The Resolutions Settings To Look Right On Separate X Screen With The Nvidia X Server Settings Gui
Aug 21, 2010
I am using Fedora 13 x86_64 on a Acer Aspire 7730ZG laptop with: 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G98 [GeForce 9300M GS] (rev a1) I have kmod-nvidia-18.104.22.168-147.2.4.fc13.x86_64-195.36.31-1.fc13.2.x86_64 installed from rpmfuison when I plug in the hdmi cable to the tv, my tv says the resoultion is at 720p, and I can not get any of the resolutions settings to look right on seperate x screen with the nvidia X server settings gui. my tv is a vizo 42inch. also another question is their a way to set the video card to output at 1080? this might be part of my problem?
I just bought an LG E2250V Monitor that I'm connecting to my laptop with the VGA port, my laptop is equipped with the cardCode:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G96 [GeForce 9600M GT] (rev a1)However nvidia-setting is able to detect resolution only up to 1024x768, I can't get higher than that, and it doesn't even display the monitors name.Information:
Operating System: Linux 22.214.171.124-74.fc14.x86_64 NVIDIA Driver Version: 260.19.29 Server Version Number: 11.0
In nvidia-settings I see, alongwith Disabled and TwinView settings, "Separate X Server". I tried choosing the option for my LCD (connected via HDMI), but I get a blank screen, presumably since the LCD's X server has nothing to render.
How do I direct any application (say vlc) to use that X Server instead of the Monitor's X server?
I am running Slackware X68_64 and I just purchased a second monitor. I enable separate x screens with nvidia-settings and when I reboot I get a black screen and when I put my mouse over to the secondary monitor I get X for the mouse pointer. Than after a while it just blacks out.
After installing some (much needed) upgrades, I am stuck being unable to install nvidia-settings after screen-resolution-extra upgraded from .11 to .13. Nvidia-settings, supposedly, requires .11. I can, of course, downgrade to .11, but I do not know if this is recommended. Is there anyway to get nvidia-settings back without downgrading? What is a good course of action?
I had Ubuntu 10.04 running fine. Then I got curious about NVIDIA XServer.
"ATI Technologies Inc RV380 [Radeon X600 (PCIE)]" - Video Card
I opened it up, clicked a settings change, and said OK. It said you need to update your blah blah blah. Then it said blah blah blah doesn't exist. Then it said it would create it for me. Then I said REBOOT!
Now I get a black screen of death.
The only way I can get anything to happen on my monitor that comes from this computer is to boot into the Install Disk and say "TRY UBUNTU".
I plugged the usual 4-pin s-video cable into my TV and graphics card. I went to nvidia x server settings, nothing. I hit detect monitors, nothing. I changed the TV to the proper input channel, Nothing. It's a bit annoying,I used it with the old GeForce Ti4200.
I have 2 monitors, a 22 inch samsung as my main and an acer as my alt. I am trying to get the samsung monitor to display, but is is disabled. So I enable it as a separate x display, then save, but when I restart x, the settings didn't save. I save the config under under /etc/X11/xorg.conf. What am I doing wrong?
I've installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my Macbook Pro 5,5. Everything is running fine with some tweaks. Just one thing bothers me: when I tell Nvidia X Server Settings that I want to use my external screen as primary screen it doesn't put the gnome panels to the other screen, well... sometimes it does after a couple times but most of the time it doesn't.is there a way to automatically detect when I connect a monitor instead of going to the Nvidia settings? Just the way Mac OS X does?
I have ubuntu 10.4 32 bit. I have 2x gtx 285's in sli that work perfectly fine in sli in windows (so its not a hardware not properly physically installed issue). But in ubuntu in the x server settings only one of the cards shows up. I was wondering if this is a 32 bit issue as in the past running 64 bit they have both shown up fine.
I have a Dell E6500 laptop (1280x800 screen), which I frequently dock.The dock as two Dell 1908FP 20" monitors connected by DVI. I can move between the laptop display and the twins by manually changing display configuration in NVIDIA X Server settings, but this is a pain requiring about 15 clicks each time.
I have tried using the "Save to X Configuration File" option in the Nvidia server settings, but this seems to screw everything up. I need to dynamically change between the setups... anyone have advice on getting that done?Can the xorg.conf file be configured to do it?My xorg.conf looks like this:
To use games and other intensive applications, but with the switch I completely lost control of the brightness for the monitor. Is their a way to configure that, through the terminal or external application. If not, is there an experimental 3d version of nouveau I could try. Help would be appreciated, everything else works great so far.
I frequently move my computer between rooms. Instead of opening the nvidia-settings, making the changes, applying, then confirming them is there an easier way using shortcut keys or shortcuts? Would like to have Ctrl-1 as change to laptop display only, Ctrl-2 for external only, Ctrl-3 for Twinview
In a previous version of UBUNTU I was able to enter a NVIDIA control panel to adjust my RGB settings. Now I'd like to change it slightly but there doesn't seem to be a NVIDIA control panel. There used to be two of them. After installing the video driver, If I tried to go into UBUNTU video settings I would get a console message stating I now need to use NVIDIA control panel and would automatically open it for me.
Using online Debian guide, installed latest nvidia-current, glx etc which seems to be 195.xx Machine boots to GUI but monitor setting menu doesnt respond nor is there an nvidia specific one. xorg.conf shows 'nvidia' driver but I suspect I am still on 'nouveau' since the synapatic package manager doesn't show an nvidia xserver-xorg-video choice.
Second question, any trailheads for using wheezy based drivers (i.e. nvidia's latest 270.xx) with squeeze?
I've installed Fedora 12 KDE using VMWare, but I can't for the life of me get my display settings to stick. When I change the resolution, my display responds appropriately but upon logging out or rebooting, these settings are lost. Am I missing something completely obvious here?
Whether it is vi or gvim, you can view the current non-default settings by writing ":set" and pressing <ENTER>. However, in FC15, vim clears the settings screen really quickly, not allowing me enough time to catch it. Normally it should pause at the settings screen, and clear it only when I press any key. If others see the same problem, I will file a bug.
I installed Fedora 12 on a new MacBook with a high def screen resolution (1680 * 1050) using Parallels. When Fedora runs, it run in a small window in the center of the screen - usable but far from desirable. Fedora 12 screen settings do not go as high as 1680 * 1050.
Not sure if this is the right forum for Linux Mint but I heard it is based on Ubuntu so I figured it might be ok. Let me know if I'm wrong. I'm having trouble getting the X server settings to stay when using the Nvidia X configuration tool on Linux Mint 9.10. Everytime I try to save to xorg.conf it gives me "Failed to parse existing X config file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'!" even when using the sudo command.
I am loving Slackware, but my Westinghouse monitor is having a hard time recognizing the screen resolution. After typing in startx, I get a black screen. I can plug my box into my trusty test monitor, change the res to a config that the Westinghouse will recognize,then switch monitors and all is fine.How can I edit the res and have Slackware remember the settings? This happens every time I reboot. I am logging in as root, I have not added a user yet at this point.
I have a triboot windows suse 11.3 stable and suse 11.3 factory pc, I would like to share the browsers and email settings between the suse stable and factory, I succeed with thunderbird and firefox moving the /home/.thunderbird and /home/.mozilla in an ext3 shared partition and linking these in the respecive /homes, I found that there isn't a /home/.chromium folder, I found probably /usr/lib64/chromium could be the same as /home/.mozilla for firefox, but I don't know if is secure or can damage my system to move this in a ext3 partition and then link this to the respective /usr/lib64/chromium, /usr/lib64/chromium has root owner, root group, visible and modifiable for root and only visible for group and other.
i have a computer with 3 users on it, and a folder using samba that everyone on the network has access to. Lets say that, the folder is stored in /etc/sharedfolder. What happens is, when user1 puts a folder in it, then logs off, user 2 attempts to modify it and fails, because permission is set to 755, and they are not in the same group. (even if they were, it should still need to be 775) Anyway, my current solution is, every 5 minutes a crontab changes permission like so: chmod 777 -R /etc/sharedfiles && chown useradmin:superadmin -R /etc/sharedfiles Which works, but seeing as there is getting close to a gig in there, this is a bad solution, as it eats up the computers resources. Solutions that i think might work:
1) create a script that only changes permissions that need be changed. 2) change file permission settings to force all documents to inherit parent document settings
Is there a way I can save system settings and have yast revert to a config file in case I ever need to reinstall the system again? I hate having to configure the firewall, runlevels, samba shares, samba workgroup, apparmor, and all the other junk after every install. It's not like I install often, but should suse 11.5 or 12 roll out, I'd like it to be a snappy upgrade.
I am running a debian squeeze machine on a ibm t40 laptop with window maker as my window manager. I am using gpointing-device-settings as a program to get the scroll bar on my touch pad working. unfortunately, I can't get the settings to stick after i shutdown and turn on. I have to go into the program and unclick then reclick the button. i'm using version 1.3.2 (ive tried both deb and source versions). does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? and if there is any configure files that I could configure instead of having to use the gui program.
This is my first posting as a Linux Newbie. I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 inside of a MS Virtual PC on my Vista machine. Everything seems to work beautifully and is stable. However, I would like to use a resolution higher than the current maximum of 800x600. I've poked around on the web and have tried various tips. I tried using the xrandr options which added a higher resolution mode, but when I would try to set the output to that resolution, I would get an error message to the effect that I could not exceed the current maximum of 800x600.
I tried to cobble parameter values together and create an xorg.conf file, but every iteration seems to produce a bunch of colorful vertical bars within my Virtual PC window, and I would have to blow away that virtual PC setup and rebuild it (along with reinstalling Ubuntu). As I said, 800x600 is not a show stopper, but I would like to take advantage of the real estate I have with my display. These "fifty-five year old" eyes could benefit from the larger size. FYI, I did take a stab at installing Virtual Box, but got the infamous "blue screen", so I would rather stick with what appears to be a stable virtual PC base.
