I'm trying to use xrandr to extend the desktop on my laptop to my lcd monitor. I have tried a few different ways but no matter what I do the desktop will end up on my LCD and the laptop is the extended desktop. Anyone know where I am going wrong? Here is the command I've been using:
I have migrtaed from Arch, my first experience with linux for the past 2 months, to Debian and i'm currently setting up my system. I have a X61s Thinkpad with a cracked screen which i use with the ultrabase with an external monitor and keyboard. The monitor requires me to use fbset on console and xrandr for a graphical enviroment Whilst i was using Arch i used 'startx' to access openbox and placed my xrandr configuration in ~/.xinitrc but with debian i have wanted to use a login manager, Slim.
Because i am using KMS for my intel based system i don't have an xorg.conf and because i am using slim i am not using ~/.xinitrc I read somwhere that creating an ~/.xprofile file would solve this but i have not had any luck. So i am wondering where would be the best place to put the xrandr configuration?
Just wiped Windows on a Dell Inspiron 8000 and installed Ubuntu. Most things going well but ran GIMP today and noticed the dissolve very slow. Think I might need more memory? I typed $ free -m and got this:
I take this to mean I have 500MB of memory but most of it is used up on something? Does this explain why opening new windows incurs a lag of a few seconds and my GIMP slideshow runs very slowly? I was a pretty good Windows user but know very little about Linux.
1 Debian Gnome3 does not create ~/.config/monitors.xml 2 according to dconf editor
the location is
and I tweaked, but no success.
[URL] .... method can be applied to GDM3 directory.
Since I have configured my x rortation only be xrandr command by shell init script, and never had configured by GUI setting, the monitors.xml was not created. When I done with GUI, the file is created as usual.
I am using a widescreen monitor and prefer placing the panel on the left size. However, when there are more than 8 windows open at the same time, the window icons seemingly randomly shrink in size and form two columns. Selecting the windows on the panel takes several clicks and during each click the panel switches between the one column and two column states.
So, I have my trusty ol' Aspire One ZG5 running with Natty. I like changing the screen orientation (sideways) to read comic books and books. I've learned how by this page: URL...So, I have no trouble changing my screen orientation with a quick key-combo, but I still need help,I'm trying to figure out how to change the "orientation" of the arrow keys along with the screen. So when i have the screen oriented to the left, the left key works as the up, the up down as the right, etc.
Here's the error message I get when I try to use randr:
$ xrandr --orientation right X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes) Major opcode of failed request: 149 (RANDR) Minor opcode of failed request: 2 (RRSetScreenConfig) Serial number of failed request: 14 Current serial number in output stream: 14
Is there a graphical front end for xrandr that also allows you to save your setup so that it automatically sets up the X configuration at boot time thereby simplifying this process. For example, at the moment if i want to use an external monitor on my laptop i have to manually set it up after booting as it defaults to the laptop resolution which is not a big deal but would still be nice to have this happen automatically. I tried putting a script into rc.local to do this but didnt work.I have tried programs such as lxrandr, grandr, arandr which are all good but dont allow you to save your choices so that they are automatically applied at the next boot of the X system.
Can anyone help with me configure my dual-screen monitors for rotation? I have xrandr 1.1. Have tried various approaches, nothing takes. I can't even get the xrandr options to show up in KDE's Display control panel.
My lspci output: 03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV516 [Radeon X1300/X1550 Series] My current xorg.conf (works, minus screen rotation): # Xorg configuration created by system-config-display
I'm running Vim 7.0 on Debian Etch. The system is between 2-3 years old. Over the past week or so, when I open vim, the document opens very slowly -- on the order of 6-7 seconds... I ran 'time vim', then exited the document as quickly as I could (I figure it probably took less than a second to type ':x<enter>')How do I figure out what changed to cause this problem? It's not outside the realm of possibility that I installed something on the system that caused this, although I never noticed a correspondence between installation and the slowdown in vim. I'm not even exactly sure what I've installed over the last week.
After a period of time, the gnome nautilus responds very slowly and occupy high CPU and memory resource. when I open a folder, I have to wait for several seconds to see its response But there is no such problem under KDE environment.
Windows redraw very slowly when you move them, i.e. you move window and it redraws when you passed about half of the screen. Everything except that works fine as usual. Maybe anyone has any ideas what could happen?I have OpenSuse 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4, Radeon HD 4870 (proprietary drivers, but i've installed it long ago and it's likely not the problem).
In Karmic, Places has stopped working. It just thinks for a minute, then stops without opening the requested location or giving any error message. Also, Open Office Presentation, which failed during a lecture, forcing me to boot Vista and show images one by one. But my first problem was that I can't get my Airplus modem to work under Ubuntu at all. Others have had the same problem, with various awkward workarounds that I can't get to work. I wanted to remove Karmic and load Jaunty, in the hopes that I can get my Airplus to work. I am in Russia spending the summer on the dacha near St. Petersburg (no phone, so I use a cell-based service called Skylink for internet contact. I am a newbie to Ubuntu, Linux in general, am not a technical user at all, that is, do not know any programming languages.
I need Places to move data from various folders under Karmic to an external drive so I can get rid of Karmic without losing the data. Can I use commands in the terminal to move data?I really, really don't want to go back to Windows. Can anyone help me get my files off to a safe place so I can try a different version of Ubuntu?
Firefox is running really slowly for me. It seems it's accessing the hard drive constantly (as seen through System Monitor).I'm running 10.04If I start Thunderbird and Firefox invariably the disk drive light just keeps flashing for minutes and the Firefox screen gets "grayed out" and everything just slows way down. Often I just throw the power switch to shut the computer off.
I run hardy heron on my laptop. I wished to remove the graphical login so I removed gdm.Now I can boot without graphics, and run startx when I wish to start x. I like this behavior. However it takes a very long time, I believe longer than using graphical login, to start gnome. It takes 45 seconds between running startx and getting a fully logged-in desktop.1. how can I figure out what is taking so long and fix it2. what if I want to boot KDE instead, which I have installed but almost never use(I don't know how to make startx boot kde instead)
I'm using KDE Version 4.4.00 on OS11.2 all my browsers (konqueror, firefox, chrome) webpages loads painfully slowly on vista same connection, same machine is loading is faster. I did not notice this in OS11.1 on same machine.I tried disable IPv6 in boot and in firefox but it did not improve situation significantly. I still get long looking up of dns time after time.Am I "paranoid" or is there some way I can address this this slow loading issue?
I have a 320 g.b hard drive for a Ubuntu and a 500 g.b Windows XP. I haven't used XP in a while because well..its windows. Anyway, I wanted to go back to the windows XP side because I needed to do some editing on sony vegas. I restarted the computer and tried starting windows and everything in the system32 folder is totally gone!I don't know what to do because I don't want to have to do a fresh install and I don't have enough space to bring everything over to the ubuntu side.
I can't find 90% of my music when I search for it in the folders. (On the ubuntu linux side). When I go into rythmbox, my music is slowly being deleted (Like my Joe satriani, Crystal planet). What is funny is that rythmbox can see a lot of my music (not all) but not the folder program. Its really weird, when I take the pure locations of the music (that rythmbox can see), and copy them, then go into folders and paste them into the search at the top, they come up. But, when I click on the up button (in folders) they don't show the folder I was just in.If some one can help me with:
1. Knowing to fix windows XP without having to reinstall anything. 2. Knowing how to save my folders from being randomly deleted.
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 and I was messing around with some settings and all that. I went to System > Preferences > Appearance > Visual Effects. I then proceeded to enable the "Extra" option. I was prompted to restart my computer for the effects to take place. Now it is running somewhat slow, for example when I open up Firefox, or any other program, it loads very slowly. I went back to change the Visual Effects back to "None" but it was already on that option, I don't know why. I went to my Hardware Drivers and I didn't have the recommended graphics driver on, so I put the recommended on and that had no help.
There are quite a few threads in this forum on how to convert a DJVU file into a PDF (among which this thread the instruction of which I followed.) I converted a DJVU file by printing it to a PS file from the Document Viewer. Then I printed again the PS to file into a PDF from that same application. The second phase took more than 24 hours and resulted in a scanned PDF of less than 500 pages with a size of 315 MB! I have many books of more pages which come down to 1 MB only. What happened in the process to make it so damn slow and so inefficient? Is there a good alternative (not ps2pdf because it provides the same result)?
I've been using Hardy Heron and linux mint 7 for quite a while now and was very happy with both until the last month or so.For some reason the computer seems to run much more slowly than it did. I deleted the linux mint because I was only testing it, but Hardy has been my stable (trusted) distro for quite some time.I've actually booted into xp to write this because Hardy had got too slow.I've spent the day downloading Ubuntu 10.04 and Linux mint 9, but both failed to install when I tried.
I hope this is the right forum for this. I downloaded Blender today to try my hand at making some 3D graphics. I have used it in the past on a windows machine and it ran smoothly. This time I have downloaded it onto a computer with similar specs but it runs very slowly. The program is laggy and slow to respond to both keyboard and mouse input. When I checked the system monitor it said that I am using 50% of my cpu and 1/6th of my memory running both Blender and Firefox(to write this post). The machine is running no hotter than usual and the fans do not seem to be being stressed at all.
Does anyone know what could be causing the program to run so slowly?
