Ubuntu :: Desktop Screen Position - .The Top Bar Of Any Screen Image Is Just Off The Top?

May 20, 2010

I am very happy with Ubuntu 10.04 that I downloaded, burnt to CD and installed (I am a newbie to Linux), but I am finding a little problem on an old Sony lap-top, with a rather old-fashioned almost square screen.The top bar of any screen image is just off the top, and I can only see a quarter of it, which makes using the max/min and cancel buttons a bit hard to use. I know I can resize the screen, but it goes back to the original next time it is used. Is there a permanent fix?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Image Not Loading - Flash Screen On Blank Screen

Dec 26, 2010

Is there a known problem with the Lubuntu 10.10 image here? I have downloaded it to two different computers, then burned the images to two different blank CD's (different brands) and neither loads. Both only get as far as the Lubuntu menu, once ENTER is pressed at that point to load the LiveCD, a blank screen eventually appears with a flashing cursor at the upper left of the screen, that's it. They were both burned using the slowest burn speeds available.

Ubuntu :: Screen Position A Few Pixels Off?

Oct 24, 2010

In 10.04 on a Shuttle the screen position is a few pixels off. I fix this with xvidtune for the session. I also get a new modeline. I build a new xorg.conf file (go virtual terminal, stop gdm, Xorg -configure, etc) and move it to /etc/X11. I introduce the modeline in the monitor section and reboot (I could do a service gdm stop...). Guess what, my screen is still a few pixels off. The documentation clearly states that if there is an Xorg.conf, it will be used. So what gives?

This problem has existed since the xorg.conf file was dropped. It is just plain silly that one has to engage in a geeky treasure hunt to correct a few pixels. This adjustment should be present in the System/Preferences/Montors. This is why Linux does not make it with ordinary users, making (superficially) simple things difficult.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Adjusting Screen Position With Xrandr?

Apr 9, 2010

I am running a dual boot conifg with OSX and Ubuntu PPC (karmic) on a 2004 G5 and everything is working pretty well - very well actually. The last thing I am trying to adjust is such a simple thing, but I just can't seem to get it. In Ubuntu, the screen position is shifted to the right, covering the scroll bar of windows and the trash can.

No problem, just use xvidtune, adjust the screen as I want and create a custom modeline right? Well, it does not seem to work.Here is what I did:Using xrandr I created a --newmode and then used --addmode to add it to the output I am using (default):


mieren@G5-Ubuntu:~$ xrandr --output default --newmode 1680x1050_new 146.25 1680 1820 1996 2268 1050 1053 1059 1089 -hsync +vsync
mieren@G5-Ubuntu:~$ xrandr -q
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 240, current 1680 x 1050, maximum 1680 x 1050


Notice how the new mode now lacks the rest of the config information specified in the --newmode above, not sure if this is normal.I can change to the new mode, and the resolution is correct, but the screen is still not adjusted. There is no difference switching between the 1680x1050 and the 1680x1050_new modes - the screen may flash, but the position does not change.

(I also tried adding a mode line to /etc/X11/xorg.conf screen section, but it also has no effect. Actually, there was no xorg.conf existing at all, so I created a minimal one.)It is really annoying to have to adjust the screen position using the monitor controls on every reboot.

Ubuntu :: Memorize Application Position On A Dual Screen And Workspace?

Dec 15, 2010

1) I got a dual screen and I can drag applications on screen No2. But if I log out, reboot or close the application, it will go back to screen No1. Is it possible to memorize the position of an application on Screen No2?

2) I use workspace a lot. I like to split them by function. I got "Development": Netbeans, firefox (one on each screen), "communication": Evolution, gwibber, empathy (Evolution on 1 and the rest on 2) and "Entertainment" (anything not involving work)Every morning, I have to move my applications to the diferent workspace. It would be great if on startup they just go where I told them to be!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dual-monitor Mouse Position Jumps When Moving Off-screen

Nov 4, 2010

I have a dual-screen set-up with Ubuntu 10.10. I have an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 video card. I use my lower-resolution laptop screen on the left and a larger monitor on the right. The monitor is also physically higher than the monitor. See attachment for a screenshot.I have correctly set up my displays so that if the mouse is in the middle of the screen it can move from one screen to the other without jumping. The jumping happens when moving off of one screen in an area where the other screen is not directly next to it (some people call this 'the void').

Example: (See the attachment for a visual example of this.) My mouse is in the external monitor (right monitor). As I move the mouse to the top-left of the monitor (position 1), I by mistake go a little too far and instead of hitting the Ubuntu applications menu, I ended up at the top-right of the laptop monitor (left monitor; position 2). I quickly realize my mistake and move the mouse back to the right monitor, but now the mouse is at the middle-left position (position 3).This same error occurs by moving the mouse on the laptop monitor (left monitor) passed the bottom-right position. This is a big problem when scrolling vertical scroll bars on the laptop monitor (left monitor).I am looking for a fix that if the mouse is at position 1 in the attachment and I move the mouse left, it stays at position 1 and does not go to position 2.

Ubuntu :: Locked Toolbar - New Position For The Toolbar That Sits At The Top Of The Screen

Mar 30, 2011

I have been working for the last three months with Ubuntu 10 on a destop. Doing just fine and loving it. I decided to try a new position for the toolbar that sits at the top of the screen. I did a right click and moved it to the right side of the scree, didn't like the look of that. Right click on the bar and moved it to the left, didn't like that either, so moved it to the bottom. having done all that I thought I could put it back at the top but alas, I can not right click on the Toolbar.

It seems as though the two bars are fighting each other at the bottom of the screen.I would like to go back to the default position at the top of the screen. I do have a terminal window available to me on the desktop so if I could find out the command line to type in, I should be able to reset my tool bar. Being new I have no idea what this command would be.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.4 - Corrupted Image Of Loading Screen

Apr 30, 2010

I have been trying to get the live image of 10.4 to work on my machine, however I keep running into video corruption issues. When I try to run the live image, from a CD or USB stick, it shows the loading screen fine and the bars underneath the logo move and look fine. Then it seems as though it has loaded and goes to desktop, but it only shows a corrupted image of the loading screen. After a few seconds there seems to be some sort of intro sound playing, however it is very scratchy/corrupted. I'm not sure what the issue is and I have tried 32 and 64 bit versions.

I have also tried installing via Wubi and get the same results. I'm really at a loss of how to correct the problem. Not sure if it is a video driver issue, or some other issue. I also can't seem to find a safe graphics mode to try and work around the problem.
My specs are
DFI Lanparty Expert
nvidia 7800 gt
2gb ram
x-fi sound card

Ubuntu :: Change Image In Floating Screen Saver In Version 10.04

May 8, 2010

[URL]... I want to change the image in the floating ubuntu screensaver in 10.04 back to what was used in 9.10. I used the guide above but overwrote the old file instead of creating a new one. When I click on it, it shows the image I specified, but in the screensaver manager under system>preferences it still plays the new logo, not the old one. I've restarted my computer and such but no luck. Is there something else that needs to be changed?

General :: External Monitor Image Not Centered In The Screen?

May 4, 2010

I'm using Xorg 7.5 on a Radeon HD4870 with the FOSS radeonhd server on my HP 6830s. The laptop has a VGA connector and I attach it to a 37" panasonic plasma TV. It works fine except for a little annoyance: when activated, the TV screen is set to the resolution of 1360x768 (which it reports as being the highest it supports) but all the image is shifted by about 100 pixels to the right. I can't see the leftmost part of the page, and I have a black vertical bar to the right.

If I change the resolution to 1024x768 there is no shifting, the image fills the entire screen with no parts hidden, but at this resolution the image is stretched. How can I tune the position on the external monitor so that the image is centered in the screen filling it entirely?

Ubuntu :: Video Driver - Image Would No Longer Fill The Entire Screen

Feb 26, 2010

i just installed an ati radeon hd 4350 video card. after doing so i installed the restricted drivers and found that the image would no longer fill the entire screen no matter what i did. i then disabled the drivers and rebooted. now when i log into gnome all i can see is a white desktop with no icons or even programs when they are loaded (i can tell that some load because i can see when the cursor changes for a text box and the like). would re-enabling the drivers help with this? if so i need a command to do so as i have had to boot into xterm to write this.

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.

Debian Programming :: Analyze Image Or Screen For Existence Of A Color

Jan 4, 2014

I have a problem for which I imagined a radical solution. Okay, I have a script that uses Alltray's "menu" feature as an interface. It's working greatly, EXCEPT sometimes lxpanel (the panel and tray of LXDE) has a hiccup and restarts, at which point the alltray menu is still running, but the icon is gone from the tray.

I want to somehow test the screen for the existence of a color, a color that is likely only to exist in the icon I've chosen for the chat menu. If the color exists on my screen, then the script can continue to do nothing, but if the color doesn't exist, then that means the alltray icon with my custom icon has disappeared, at which point I should have my bash script close the alltray process and start it again.

How to accomplish the checking of my screen for the existence of a particular color? To simplify, I already have simple screenshot scripts (scrot is good for it), so it would be fine if I could simply analyze an image.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: GeForce 8400 GS + 10.10 - Screen Image Extrapolating The Display Boundaries

Nov 23, 2010

I have just installed a GeForce 8400 GS card in my Ubuntu 10.10 with the Nvidia proprietary driver( version number: 260.19.21).

The Display is connected to the desktop through an HDMI cable and the resolution is 1920 x 1080 .

After some trouble(Black Screens), almost everything is ok.

The only problem is the screen that is extrapolating the Display Boundaries.

I have tried to set it through the nvidia configuration program without success.

Is there any parameter in Xorg.conf that could resolve this issue?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: When Go To Full Screen Mode, The Digital Image Slows And Get Blocky?

When I go to full screen mode, the digital image slows and get blocky. When I check the settings, it is telling me I have a 32" not a 42" and there is no way to change it. It does tell me I have a Westinghouse. I also have a Roku and I believe it has a Linux OS on it and it works great

Ubuntu :: Gnome Desktop Does Not Remember Window Position / Size?

Jul 7, 2010

I am running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

The issue is that Gnome will not "remember" the size and location of the window in which an app was last run. For example - I run Disk Usage Analyzer and stretch the window to be the full height of the screen and about half the width of the screen and move it to the far left of the desktop. I then close the app. The next time I run it the app comes up in a "default" window size, not the size I last used, positioned randomly on the desktop.

p.s. I should add that some apps seem to remember their prior window size/position. For example OpenOffice.org, Firefox, Nautilus.

Ubuntu :: Black Screen (no Desktop) On 10.04 LTS

Jun 20, 2010

The computer was working fine last night, when I woke up this morning (I leave it on) it was making strange noises through the speakers and I had a blank screen, restarted a few times had some page full of code and wouldn't move on from there, I went out came back started it up and it did everything normally except instead of a desktop I had a black screen, however strangely enough when I press the power button on the PC a shut down menu comes up, and the mouse works and I can select from the options. I am on an Nvidia ION tho. How do I boot into a safe mode as such? as at the moment I'm using a ubuntu live CD to read the forums!

On the GRUB menu, seclect "Ubuntu (recovery mode)" (not exact wording). You'll get scrolling boot messages until you get to a screen with a grey box and some options. Use the arrow keys to select "x failsafe graphics mode" or something of the like. Press enter and you'll probably get a message that your card can't be detected or something. Press okay and continue. Your screen will be messed up, but you'll be in. It probably isn't the same problem, as you don't have an ATI card and can see a shutdown menu, but good Luck!

How do you bring up the GRUB menu? My PC isnt dual booted so I never see any menus at all, I thought all I had to do was press F8 during boot up? No, F8 is Windows. Hold down shift when booting to see the menu. Downloaded & Installed the 10.6 driver and everything is working fine. Unminimizing apps works much faster with this driver . However, /usr/bin/aticonfig --initial results in

Found fglrx primary device section
Using /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Saved back-up to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.fglrx-2
/usr/bin/aticonfig: Writing to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' failed. Bad file descriptor.

Right now I've tried what "jxtreme" suggested on quote nr2 however when I go into recovery mode I get a load of code scrolling through the screen as its supposed to but I never get any box with options as he says, it just gets to a point where there's a small white cursor flashing at me half way down the screen and it stays there...
