Ubuntu Installation :: Vertical Screen Wrap After Upgrading To 10.04 LTS?

Jun 24, 2010

I am seeing the Vertical screen wrap problem (discussed in [URL]) on a 64-bit Athlon XP desktop with the Ubuntu version that I installed yesterday (10.04 LTS 32-bit).

Vertical screen wrap, with the mouse pointer offset by a few pixels to the north, taskbar partially visible .

The xserver video amd package version is, xserver-xorg-video-amd 2.11.8-4 and the geode package is, xserver-xorg-video-geode 2.11.8-4. Is it possible that the problem lies in the new geode package (and not the intel/amd driver) ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Sparc Blade With Large Vertical Stripes On Screen?

Jun 29, 2011

I've got 10.04 installed on my Blade 1000 workstation. Installed 6.06 first and worked my way up as per other postings. See attached cookbooks I wrote. Framebuffer is Elite3D-lite, and I have done the afbinit install. Using Xorg w/ Gnome and other windowing software to eliminate the possibility it is Gnome. From what I understand, Ubuntu does not require a custom X11 conf file like OpenBSD.

Current screen output shows large vertical stripes, where the stripes overlay on top of the GNOME desktop. Inside the stripes are the prior boot screen output of Ubuntu 10.04. When the screen saver kicks in, the Gnome desktop disappears, but the blue 10.04 stays visible. Mouse cursor moves across the screen, under each stripe as it goes.

My knowledge of framebuffers is limited. Would this then imply that the framebuffer is not fully "refreshing"? The screen does not provide full width even though the correct OpenBoot monitor configuration is set. Haven't found any mention of this issue from other Ubuntu/Linuxes Sparc users. Attached the X11 log. Looking at the log, I suspect this will need a custom X11 config file.

Fedora Installation :: 10 - Graphic Drivers - Screen Showed Only A Bunch Of Colored Vertical Lines

Feb 10, 2009

I recently downloaded and installed Fedora 11 Alpha. I then installed the Nvidia drivers for my Graphics card (GeForce 7800 GTX). I discovered that Fedora 11 is using a Beta version of Xorg and an incompatible ABI. So, my drivers would not work with Fedora 11 without me dowgrading the Xorg server. I decided to reinstall Fedora 10 instead.

I started the install, and when the installation loaded the generic video drivers, my screen showed only a bunch of colored vertical lines. Fedora 10 doesn't allow me to install in text mode.

Ubuntu :: Splash Screen With Vertical Bars

May 6, 2010

I'm still getting some vertical lines through my splash screen, they are just a little darker purple than the rest of the screen, but disappear over the ubuntu logo/text/dots. I've tried the following from the faq, which made the screen at least show up, which is wasn't doing before.

Users should experience a much faster boot however some users may experience problems with Plymouth after the nVidia graphics driver has been enabled. Users may experience plymouth using lower graphics resolution. [URL]

Graphical solution : [URL]

Command line :
(Some of the fixes put forward dont work for everyone.)
One that works for nVidia and to try is this.
gksu gedit /etc/default/grub
and add the line in BOLD.
# The resolution used on graphical terminal
# note that you can use only modes which your graphic card supports via VBE
# you can see them in real GRUB with the command `vbeinfo'
GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1680x1050 Save the file and run
sudo update-grub
The resolution chosen should be your monitors native resolution.

Other graphics card users may get a black screen with flashing cursor and then a very short duration plymouth. [URL]. One fix for this is to create this file.
gksu gedit /etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/splash
and add this option FRAMEBUFFER=y, save the file.
sudo update-initramfs -u

Ubuntu :: Locked Screen Flashes Between Vertical Bars And Terminal

May 14, 2010

Ubuntu 9.04 works fine, I have just installed Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx without problems, it runs fine but after a while the screen starts flashing and the only way out is to reboot with ctrl-alt-del. First of all I get a pale purple screen with blocks of random colour in the middle then it goes on to flashing between two screens. In one the top half of the screen is vertical black and white stripes and the bottom half is black, in the other it is a terminal screen with this distributed across it:

Starting common Unix printing system cupsed
Pulse Audio configured for per-user-sessions
Enabling additional executable binary formats binfmt support
Checking battery state

On the latest occasion the text was "could not write bytes: Broken pipe" repeated all over the screen, followed by "checking battery state".

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Display Goes Black With Vertical Lines Top Half Of Screen?

Sep 5, 2010

I don't seem to have an "xorg.conf" file.

Gateway SB400a computer with Edubuntu Lucid installed. The problem first cropped up when I installed the Edubuntu packages on Ubuntu. I did a fresh install with Edubuntu and the problem persists. I don't want to go back to Ubuntu since this computer is for my Grandkids and I want to the Edubuntu stuff for them.

I don't have the specs handy, but I can get them. what I have to do to get them. (it happens when you get old)

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen Shell Goes Into An Infinite Loop After Upgrading To 10.10?

Oct 20, 2010

I have just upgraded from 10.4 to 10.10 (x64), and now when I run gnu screen the new shell session goes into an infinite loop displaying:

Quote: Linux dave-desktop 2.6.35-22-generic #35-Ubuntu SMP Sat Oct 16 20:45:36 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Ubuntu 10.10

Welcome to Ubuntu! * Documentation: [URL]...

0 packages can be updated.
0 updates are security updates.

repeatedly until I hit CTRL-C and break out of screen. I tried tmux and that did the same thing, so it is a problem with the shell initialisation rather than with the screen program. However I can start bash, zsh or sh directly in a terminal with no problem.

Ubuntu :: Graphics / GUI 10.04 - Skin Flickered Black / Green A Few Times Then White Vertical Lines Started Appearing Down From The Top Of The Screen

Aug 3, 2010

Ever since the problem with Flash started up a few days ago, (Videos Lagging/jumpy/jerky horridly.) I decided to finally switch from 9.10 to 10.04...all was going well until a few minutes ago while I was browsing themes and running Konversation, the skin flickered black/green a few times then white vertical lines started appearing down from the top of the screen to about the middle, (Almost looked like the teeth on a haircomb). I had to then shutdown and restart. What id like to know is are the two connected (My earlier flash problem and this) or how I can fix it, so far it hasn't happened again but I'm starting to worry, I've never had problems with Ubuntu until a few weeks ago.

Ubuntu :: Edgeless Pointer Wrap-around?

Jan 23, 2010

Is there any equivalent for Linux to the "Edgeless" software for Windows that lets the mouse pointer wrap around from one screen edge to the opposite edge? That is, if you move the pointer off the screen to the right, it comes back in on the left side.

Ubuntu :: Abiword Word Wrap

May 13, 2010

Abiword is splitting words at the end of sentences. If I go to the end of the line and nudge the word, it will wrap but I get an extra space. I can usually delete the space. Sometime, the word will wrap correctly if I continue typing but this is not the typical case.

I know this is not a problem with OpenOffice but I don't want to install 70MB of program just to get a simple word processor.

Ubuntu :: Gedit Does Text-wrap To The Margin?

Aug 25, 2010

I hope I am pasting this in the correct place. I am a big fan of minimalist software- and Gedit is an excellent program. Now I am not a a programmer or anything, but I do like to write, and Gedit seems very well suited towards what I want. A simple word-bashing-out program.

But my problem is that it does text-wrap to the margin. Now I don't particularly want to do this manually, and the option in the preferences menu doesn't seem to work.

Ubuntu :: Word Wrap In Gnome Sticky Notes?

May 30, 2010

I started using gnome sticky notes along with the Compiz widget layer in Ubuntu 10.04. The problem I'm having is that word wrap on the sticky notes is hit-or-miss. Most of the time the notes will automatically stretch horizontally (even beyond the size of a workspace) rather than break at its current window size. The only other problem I've noticed is that if I right-click on the title of a note, the resulting menu doesn't display correctly (it's looks like a line).Should I reinstall the package it belongs to?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Loading Screen After Upgrading Something?

Jan 28, 2011

I got some upgrade few days ago and after a raccomended reboot I had the Ubuntu loading screen (the one in purple with the loading dots) completely messed up!

This is a picture of what I'm talking about. I'm an Ubuntu noob and I don't know if there's some "upgrade history" and actually I'm not even sure that the upgrade is linked with the issue Ah, it also happens when I shut down the computer, not only when I boot. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 over a MacbookPro 5.3 btw

General :: How To Turn Off Word-wrap In Less

Apr 19, 2011

How can I make the less utility in Linux not wrap lines?

Long version: Often I need to view huge CSV files using less with hundreds of columns. I frequently only care about the first couple columns. However, word wrap causes one line to become several lines even on wide-screen monitors.

Software :: Another Way To Disable Word Wrap?

Nov 13, 2010

I have no need for word wrap for most of what I use JOE for. The man page and the HOWTO don't answer this question, so I'm wondering if it might be a bug. I'm running Joe 3.7.in the joerc file does not work correctly. It works (built-in?) for .c files, and I can make it work for .pl files. But files with no extension? Forget it.Without having to resort to the menu each time to turn it off, is there another way to disable word wrap?

General :: Line Wrap In Less Not Working

Jan 21, 2010

I am having a problem with long lines when displayed in less. It is difficult to describe but I will try...

I have a text file with some lines longer that 80 characters. If I use less to view this file in an Putty terminal set to an 80 character width, some of the lines wrap. So far so good. If I now use the 'j' or 'arrow down' key to scroll down one line at a time all is ok until I encounter another long line (longer than 80 characters in my example). What I see is only the wrapped portion of the line. The first 80 characters are missing. At this point I can type a ctrl-L to refresh the window and then the long line is wrapped properly. It is only when I am scrolling one line at a time that I see this behavior.

I am not certain that this is a "less problem". However, I only notice it using less. vi works properly. more works properly. I suppose it could also be a Putty, bash or environment problem but I'm not sure.

I've played around with options to less such as -X -r -R without any luck. The systems I am connecting to area all running CentOS if that makes any difference.

Ubuntu :: No Display On Screen After Upgrading Nvidia Drivers?

Sep 26, 2010

Recently I upgrade to the latest Nvidia driver for Linux. I checked that it was compatible with my Ubuntu 10.04 x64 system and my geforce gt 220 graphics card. I decided to go with the newest beta ver 260.1904. Installation went well, better actually than other times I tried to install the newest driver from their site. After installation was finished I restarted and let my system load up. As soon as it got past the ubuntu logo, the screen just went blank as if there was no signal.

I determined that everything but the display was working. When I pressed ctrl-alt-F1 the numlock light turned off (this usually happens) and was still toggle-able. When I went through the other x-servers (ctrl-alt-(F2-F6)) the light went out but could be turned off and on by hitting numlock. When booting in from recovery mode, the screen displayed up to the point where it would show recovery options with no noticeable error showing before the screen turned off. This is what worries me the most.I don't think it is my Xorg.conf because I replaced with a backup and still have the same problem.Does anyone have any ideas about why this is happening or how I can at least see the terminal. As a side note, its definitely not the card because the card worked fine before, works in windows and live cds, and I tried with an older nvidia card and had the same problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Less Colors Visible On The Screen After Upgrading?

Nov 14, 2010

I've just upgraded to Kubuntu 10.10 recently, and everything's working well, except that the screen seems to display less colors than it used to. It's very noticeable when looking at smooth gradients, since there are no smooth gradients anymore.

I'm using a laptop with a Radeon HD 5650 video card. The drivers seem to be working well, since I can run a 3D game like Nexuiz without any problems. The lack of colors isn't even very noticeable when playing games, but I can see it clearly in KDE... for example, the window background gradient isn't really a gradient now, just a few different shades of gray next to each other.I've looked around in KDE display settings and ATI settings, but there's absolutely nothing about the number of displayed colors there.

Fedora :: Wrap Icon Label Text In Overview?

Jul 4, 2011

how to wrap the text in the overview for the icons I tell you I love opensource. Straight from some of the guys who wrote gnome shell, and yes the reason it was left out by default is because it has some quirks. Yes it wraps text - however if you have long words - like this_file_has_no_spaces then it will overflow into the icon on either side of it. But most application names have spaces. The obvious place you will see this happening is in recent items where that displays system files etc. The other issue is that when you hover/highlight an icon it will only highlight the first line of text. That's pretty much it and with a few lines of code then you can increase the font size of applications and don't have to worry about names getting cut off

General :: Wrap App With Dynamic Libraries Into One Large Static App?

Feb 24, 2011

I have an old program that kind of depends on older dynamic libraries. They tend to get upgraded easily with distro's updates. I figured that there would be a script with using ldd that would gather the libs needed and create one bigger, statically linked application that wouldn't break so easily. If I could do this, a lot of older KDE libraries could be removed from my system and easen my life.

My distribution of choice is gentoo, but I'm looking for a general solution that doesn't depend on rebuilding anything. If it runs with libs on their path, I'm sure it can be made run with libs somewhere else!
