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..)

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Obnoxious Bar In Smplayer - Full Screen Isn't Full Screen And There Are Black Edges On Both Sides Of The Screen

Jan 25, 2011

This obnoxious bar has just appeared in Smplayer at the top of the screen. It stays there even when I go full screen. Now full screen isn't full screen and there are black edges on both sides of the screen. I have not be able to figure out how to hide it. I do not need or want this onscreen display. How can I configure Smplayer to make this go away? How can I get my 16:9 full screen aspect ratio back? I have done nothing to mplayer or smplayer as far as editing any or changing any configuration files. I tried several videos and it displays on all of them. It was not there last time I used Smplayer.

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't Increase Resolution Than At Least Stretch The Screen To Full Screen?

Aug 27, 2011

I recently upgraded my graphics card from a Geforce 7600GS to a Gefore 560Ti. And while most things are normal, during boot up my screen isn't "full screen" until X is started, after which everything else is fine. Essentially, all display, the grub menu, the splash screen, console text, etc, is within a box on the screen, with 2" on the left and right, and 1" top and bottom of empty blackness.

From what I understand, this is because the framebuffer is using the wrong resolution, but the maximum resolution that hwinfo --framebuffer returns is 1280x1024 (which I am already using "0x031a".) (My monitors is natively 1920x1080) Is it possible to do something about this? If not increase resolution than at least stretch the screen to full screen?

sudo /usr/sbin/hwinfo --framebuffer
02: None 00.0: 11001 VESA Framebuffer
[Created at bios.459]
Unique ID: rdCR.GGyCBArXznD
Hardware Class: framebuffer
Model: "NVIDIA GF104B Board - 10400050"

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?

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.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Black Screen On Exiting Full Screen Games?

Jul 18, 2010

OpenSuse 11.3 with nVidia drivers.I have the screen working fine though it only runs in 1600x1200@75 using the nVidia driver (GTX260 card).When I play a game in full screen mode all seems OK but when I exit the game then I just get the mouse pointer on a black screen.There must be something present since the cursor changes as I move it, normal pointer -> hand over a link etc. It's just that black on black isn't very readable.

General :: Gnome - Configure The Definition Of "full Screen" To Make Large VNC Windows Behave Nicely On A Dual Screen Setup?

Dec 15, 2010

In my corporate environment, I'm required to run a Windows machine that acquires a VNC session on a machine in the server farm. My windows machine is dual head with different resolution monitors ( 1600x1080 on left and 1920x1200 on right). If I create a VNC session that spans the monitors, then maximizing a window in the VNC session causes it to stretch across both my monitors.

Instead, I want a "maximize" event to behave like it does on my windows machine -- I only want to maximize to the display that the window is on.

How can I define what, what I'll call, "maximize regions"? Regions in the VNC graphical plane where when I click "maximize", the window only expands to the region it currently ( and mostly) resides in.

Can I do this in gnome, X, xrandr, or some other magical interface?

Ubuntu :: Windows Accidentally Full Screen In Unity?

May 20, 2011

when I move any window in unity it often goes full screen by accident.

Is there any way to disable this annoying behavior?

eg. grab a window, move your mouse (and the window) up until it touches the panel, and your window is full screen. This happens several times in an hour.. really annoying.

I prefer using F11 or double-click to archive the same thing. (doesnt happen by accident)

OpenSUSE :: Konqueror Opens In Full Screen?

Mar 24, 2010

Konqueror opens in full screen every time which is more a nuance than an issue, I just haven't had time to search why; I'm seeing if anyone else has this issue or knows the preset to change how K. starts up. I don't use Konqueror enough. I can right click to take it off full screen mode, but for who ever else who uses it, it can be a nuance.

I also have this same issue with Thunderbird, but I can't get it out of full screen mode there is no menu bar up top to reduce, minimize or close out.

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 Install :: Blank Screen After Boot - No Present Windows

Nov 4, 2010

For some reason, sometimes after I just turn the computer off by pressing the power button while hooked up to the video mount, I'll turn the computer on and (after it automatically logs into the standard user) come to a blank black screen. The only thing I can access is by pressing Alt+Tab to get a "no present windows" window, and thats it. Could it be that an activity or something has been deleted somehow?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Along With Windows 7 But Get Black Screen After Boot Of LiveCD

Nov 17, 2010

I have windows 7 and I'd like to install opensuse 11.3. I have tried with liveCD, live usb, live dvd, but when I click installation, it shows "kernel loading", and when it finishes the loading, all I get is a black screen. Sometimes, when I try with the live CD method it reboots and the same happens again.

In my other computer with XP installed inside, it works immediately. I have tried to change video mode to text and vesa mode, also I have typed "acpi=off noapic edd=off" in the boot options line, but it didn't worked.

The black screen appears not only for the installation option, but also when I choose boot live CD, and check installation media. By the way, I have checked the downloaded iso with md5 checker, and it's the right file.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot Goes To X-Windows Login Screen Instead Of Xfce?

May 12, 2011

My default desktop environment is Xfce 4.7 (older machine). Monday I came back to work to discover a 17 GB log file in /var/log that ate up my root partition and gave me trouble running. I deleted it, which solved the problem EXCEPT that now when I boot, instead of the Xfce login prompt, I get an X-Windows login prompt. This takes me to a terminal (which apparently reads my .zshrc file), from which I can start an Xfce session by running xfce4-session. How can I get back to booting into the Xfce login screen?

OpenSUSE :: Adobe Flash Lags On Full-screen?

Aug 13, 2011

ever since i started using opensuse at the end of december, this has been bugging me. when i try to watch a full-screen videos video in either chromium or firefox, it lags to the point where maybe i'm getting 0.5 frames per second. ironically, when i launch chrome in virtualized windows 7 (virtualbox) to watch a full-screen flash video it looks smooth as butter. yes, even with the virtualization overhead and everything.

i'm using adobe flash 10,3,181,22 from the opensuse repositories, chromium 15 and firefox 5. i'm on a 64-bit system.

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 ?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Full-Screen Video Streaming Lock-up

Oct 15, 2010

When I play a video web stream full-screen, the image randomly freezes. I can still move the mouse and hear the audio, but I can't click on anything, and I can't get out of full-screen. No keyboard commands that I know work, and so I end up having to hold down the power button to kill the machine.

This didn't happen in Ubuntu, so I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware issue. And I changed the power management settings to do nothing, but it still happens. So, I don't know what the deal is. Should I try a different flash player (I have the adobe player as default)?
