There was no sound on my system then I discovered that the PCM volume was 0, I changed it to 100 and the sound was back o track, but after every restart the PCM volume changes back to 0, how can I set the 100 value to PCM as default ? OpenSuse 11.2
I use headphones and have an MCP73 sound device; am running OpenSUSE 11.4.
On each restart, I get no sound. I have to go to YAST, Hardware, Sound, Other, Volume. The 'Other channels', Front slider is at 0%. If I slide it up to 100%, my headphones start working. At this point the Help text says to press 'Next' to save the settings, but there isn't a 'Next' button...just a Cancel and OK. OK keeps the new setting, but apparently doesn't save it permanently.
What can I do to avoid having to reset this slider every time ?
I don't shutdown my OS really often and sometimes the driver of my soundcard seems to crash so I need to restart it. I use the command "rcalsasound restart" which works well or "/etc/init.d/alsasound restart" but I lose the volume control during the operation. Moreover, I have a dell laptop with sound keys and naturally it doesn't work to. Do you know how to restart the volume control applet? And I'd like to know why these commands don't start also the volume control (I'd like to know a bit more how it works).
I have installed the current Nvidia driver(s) for my video card: nvidia-gfxGO2-kmp-desktop 260.19.12_k220.127.116.11_12-24.1 x11-video-nvidiaGO2 260.19.12-25.1 nvidia-settings 256.35.0.pm. 1.1 xorg-x11-driver-vido-nouveau 0.0.15_20100401_bfb95cc-1.10 libXNVCtrl 256.35-0.pm.2.1
Now my problem is everytime I save the configuration for - the open GL settings - the anti aliasing settings - the powermizing settings with the GUI-programm NVIDIA X Server Settings under GNOME
Every setting is lost completely after a restart of my system and the defaults are reset even if i save the configuration in the menu nvidia-settings configuration of the GUI-programm NVIDIA X Server Settings. Is there a possibility to SAVE the settings? They should stay after a reboot. I think this is a issue very spread under several Linux distributions. I can't understand the source of the mistake or bug.
Whenever I choose "Restart" from the GDM screen, GDM appears to shutdown, and the first TTY is displayed with a login prompt at the bottom (assuming I haven't used that TTY). I am by no estimation a patient individual, but I waited a solid minute or two for something to happen, but nothing ever did. I end up logging in as root on that TTY and running "shutdown -r now" to get the job done. This is a shared computer, and ideally any user should be able to perform shutdown options graphically from GDM.The only mentioned workaround doesn't apply to me as I am using the nvidia driver, not intel.
I'm trying to get a program to automatically reload if I accidentally close it. This is a remote access program, so it has to be relaunched without me doing anything to help it along if it crashes or I accidentally close it. I noticed that someone came up with a way to solve this back in 2007 [URL].. but the files don't appear to exist any more for it to work. how I might get a program to automatically reload on exit?
What I would like to do is if the app crashes which kills xinit for the system to either kill login (which will auto login and restart the app) or just to execute the startx command (which auto launches the app) as if typed in from the keyboard. I am trying to find a way that will use the least amount of system resources, rather than a loop.
I have installed Blender from Blender.org. I have installed it my home directory. After launching Blender the icon appears in the unity launcher. Then I fixed the icon in the launcher via the context menu. After restart the Blender icon does not reappear? How can I realize that the Blender icon shows up very time after starting Ubuntu?
I tried to set up an automatic program restart on Debian Lenny for fail2ban and asterisk. Google helped me to find some HowTos. However, all what I tried so far doesn't work. The latest version: According some instructions the following commands have been written in a file called auto_start_stop:
Code: #! /bin/sh
-> saved in the folder /etc/init.d and -> its properties changed with a right-click to 075. -> The links have been created with update-rc.d auto_start_stop defaults
I am facing problems to restart PADS(Passive asset detection system) from java program.I used the root as a user. So from the command prompt I can start PADS with out sudo ,but when I try to start PADS from the my java program i.e.
Process proc=Runtime.getRuntime().exec("pads restart");
It throws the error in log that FATAL error ! you not root and permission denied.
Then I tried the same with sudo
Process proc=Runtime.getRuntime().exec("sudo pads restart";

It does not kill the previous process of PADS .and both the process get hung.
In gui validation if user enters string in integer requiring field, a dialog box pops out. So on clicking the button i want to stop the program execution and return to the previous jframe(either the same one or newly created object of it).
How can i handle this in java. I tried calling main(); but it doesn't work. Also System.exit(0); doensn't work.
I'm running Debian Squeeze x64 and have an odd problem with both Empathy and Pidgin. After I launch the program and add my accounts everything works fine. When I shut down either program and restart the accounts will not connect. I have to delete the accounts and re-add them and all is good until the next time. It's not a firewall issue as I've tried it with the firewall turned off.
I run Ubuntu 10.10, recently I got this problem. if I open more than one program, and click on icon of them on task bar to switch between them, KDE crash and restart with log in screen. now since 2-3 days this restart also happening when I ALT+TAB to switch between running programs .
MeTv (me-tv) 1.1.2 works fine after boot, epg recording and all, but after quitting it it will not connect to dvb-t card again with message; "Failed to lock to channel" Killing residual me-tv processes does not help, only reboot. All the while mplayer dvb://"channel" does work!
mencoder works as well, so there seems to be no problem with drivers etc. dmesg says all is loaded at boot.
I'm running kernel 2.6.31 with a Hauppage 1300 pci card.
i have been using a webcam on my netbook in ubuntu 9.10 netbook remix. it seems to not detect the camera after a while and i have to reboot to get it to work again. is there anyway that i can restart the driver or something without rebooting the netbook?
I upgraded from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04. After the upgrade, mplayer no longer play a DVD.
I put the missing codecs, as described here: [url] Now DVD worked.
Also during the upgrade package libvdpau1 was disappeared, I restored it from the default repository. Then vdpau worked, but only after a reboot. After restarting gdm (select "Log Out" or sudo service gdm stop/start, or Ctrl + Alt + Backspace) an error:
After reboot everything works again.I updated libvdpau1 from repository [url], but it did not help, same error.
Video: nvidia 9600M GT Notebook [url] Driver set the default, 195.36.15-0ubuntu3, from the standard repositories. In Karmic was 185, everything worked.
I noticed this feature, I do not know whether it is connected with subj:
Immediately after loading the gdm starts with the seventh console, ie when you exit the virtual console by Ctrl + Alt + F2 again to hit Ctrl + Alt + F7.
After you restart gdm is in the eighth console, Ctrl + Alt + F8.
If I run a guest session, it starts with the ninth console.
In the karmic like always with the seventh started.
When booting too strange things happen.
Ubuntu Karmic I installed with Alternate CD to an encrypted LVM.
I booting in text mode, ie without "quiet splash".
Booting reached requiring a password, when entering the password does not display an asterisk, after entering the password then continue normally.
After upgrading to Lucid booting lines are shown as a twisted, ladder when entering the password it displays asterisks and when I enter each character again displays prompt.
I did not like, and I again put the "quiet splash".
Basically I'm running Rosegarden, fire up qsynth, load a soundfont and when it's restarting the fluidsynth engine it just hangs and does nothing. Has anyone run into this before? It's really quite irritating because as far as I know it's the only free synth with support for soundfonts.
I have just finished the upgrade of the latest version and I'm at the point of my system restating.
My system automatically tried to restart but on the restart I got the 'terminal' view. It stopped when asking for my username (it never normally asks for this before the grub menu) and then password. I didn't get any further than that.
I now have on my screen (still in the terminal view before the grub menu)
I'm on my phone now so I don't actually have the symbol for before the dollar sign but your know what it is. The raised S on a 90 degree angle.
