Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI EAH4350 (Radeon 4350) Mouse Trapped And Keyboard Locked In Dual Head?

May 9, 2010

I have successfully installed an ATI EAH4350 (Radeon 4350) to work as a dual head in Ubuntu 10.04 but there is a bug though, which I noticed given the following scenario:

* Dual Head config (Multi-desktop)
* Monitor 1
- Running firefox and terminal
* Monitor 2
- Running WinXP in Virtual Box 3.1.6
- Virtual Box is in full screen mode
- WinXP is showing a flash movie using firefox also full screen mode
* Monitor 2 is configured above Monitor 1.

Sometimes the mouse gets trapped at the top of Monitor 1 (in between the two monitors). Keyboard doesn't function as well but the currently running apps continue to operate "normally". Ctrl + Alt + Fx doesn't work.

What is frustrating is when it happens it's beyond my control. I can't do anything else besides reset the PC.

OpenSUSE Install :: X.org Dual-head Under 11.3 With Radeon?

Jul 16, 2010

I've just performed a fresh installation of openSUSE 11.3. System specs include GA-MA790X-DS4, PhenomII X4 940 AM2+, Sapphire RadeonHD 3670, two monitors. What I'm trying to accomplish is to set up my KDE desktop to (as it did under 11.2) use a multi-desktop multi-output non-cloned setup, so that I can use my two monitors side by side and maximize windows in either one respectively, etc.

So here I am with my newly installed system. Obviously I can't use fglrx, as it doesn't yet support the 2.6.34 kernel, so amdcccle is right out. SaX2, I notice, is gone. I have tried using KDE's built-in configuration tools, but the dual-head setup doesn't persist between logins. Strangely, windows that were open on the second monitor do vanish off-screen, but the monitors return to their overlapped positions so it's useless. Monitor 2 doesn't even retain its resolution setting. As one does, I decided I'd manually edit the X configuration file. SHOCK HORROR! No xorg.conf So what I'm driving at is this: How oh how do I configure my X.org to remember that it has two, quite different, monitors under openSUSE 11.3 ? Sorry if this post is hard to follow, I got very little sleep while trying to sort out the myriad problems I caused myself in upgrading.

General :: Compiz Stops Updating Windows On A Multi-head System - Keyboard And Mouse Still Alive?

Dec 8, 2010

I am running Fedora F14 on an Intel I3 cpu w/4Gb memory and plenty of disk. I have two displays connected to the Gigabyte Motherboard, one of the HDMI connector, and one on a DVI connector. I run Gnome. When Compiz is enabled things work fine for a while, meaning hours or days. Then the displays will "freeze" to the point where the clock stops updating. The system itself is still running programs, services, and the mouse and keyboard work. The mouse cursor will move around, but nothing can be clicked upon. If a terminal was the open window, typing on the keyboard does not do anything, nor does ctrl-backspace or whatever it is to terminate X windows. The keyboard does allow me to press ctrl-alt-F2 to switch to one of the base consoles. Once there I can type to my hearts content. I can kill off my logged in Gnome session through the console, and I can shutdown the system in a controlled manner.

It is as if all of the windows stop updating. For example, I play music through Amarok. An hour after I stop using the system but letting the music play the screens will do their lockup. The clock will stop, and Amarok will stop updating which song it is playing. It continues to play each song in the playlist, but the Amarok window shows what was playing at the time that the clock stopped. I've also had this happen to me while using Yumex, where it would stop updating the screen while installing programs, but the programs do get installed. With Compiz off I don't have this problem.

The version of Compiz I am using is currently 0.8.6-3. It is running on Gnome 2.32.0-2, with a Linux kernel of 2.6.35.9-64. It has happened with earlier versions of these programs. I am using the graphics processing the Intel i3 chip to the motherboard connectors. The freeze generally happens at some random time while I am not actively using the system. It has happened to me while doing simple things like programming through an IDE. The really strange thing to me is that the cursor will move around on the screen after everything else stops updating.

Debian Multimedia :: Focus Is Trapped And Left Mouse Click Doesn't Transfer Focus?

Aug 9, 2011

I'm hit with a very annoying bug: mouse clicks do not give focus anymore, focus stays trapped and sometimes right clicking the element that last had focus allows the next left click to move focus. I'm running wheezy with kde. Searching the web it I found no solution but it seems my problem is close to what is reported there:e issue: after alt+tab the window decoration changes as if the focus had moved to the new window but it stays trapped in the previous window. Rebooting does not fix the issue.I have nvidia graphics set up with dual screen through the nvidia drivers but this setup has been working good for several months, so I don't think it's related.

Fedora :: 12: Mouse Cursor Trapped In Top Left Corner?

Jan 12, 2010

For some reason the mouse curser starts out in the middle of the screen after booting as normal but as soon as i move it, it gets stuck in the top left corner of the screen.It still responds to clicks and i can sometimes see it "wants" to move but itets repositioned into that corner.he problem exists in the live-cd session as well as in the installed session.I looked into the Xorg.0.log file and it said something along the lines of:Code:HID XXXX:XXXX: failed to initialize for relative axesI suspect this to be the culprit, yet i've never had any problems with the mouse in any other operating system (writing from kubuntu 9.10 right now) and i've used most of the popular ones.Is there anything i can do about it? Seems that X is doing things differently in Fedora... There's got to be some switch or something.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Video Display When Using Dual Head / Get That?

Jun 19, 2010

I just installed lucid on my laptop with a second screen. Unfortunately, I cannot display any video. Neither on the laptop screen nor on the second external screen. In contrast, rebooting without attaching the external screen allows me to display videos again.
I never experienced this kind of behavior with Ubuntu 9.10.
Graphic card: Intel 945

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dual Head Doesn't Work Anymore In Lucid?

May 9, 2010

Upon upgrading to Lucid from Karmic, my dual head setup doesn't work anymore with the new 2.6.32 kernel. In the previous kernel 2.6.31, everything works as expected (also when I boot Lucid with that kernel). On 2.6.32, the only thing I get is two clones. Is there some new type of configuration required that I missed or should I still compile some new kernel module???

My card:

Code:
rogier@rogier-desktop:~$ lspci |grep VGA
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon RV250 If [Radeon 9000] (rev 01)
My xorg.conf, which worked fine on Karmic:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Xcalib Only Inverts Primary Screen Of Dual Head?

May 14, 2010

I use Ubuntu Netbook Remix, and I've installed Lucid over Karmic. (Not an upgrade process, because I didn't have enough space on my primary drive.) I have an Acer AL1511 LCD screen attached as a second screen - ie dual head. All that works fine. However....

I rely on xcalib from Stefan Doehla to invert my screen gamma ramps, ie turn them to white text on black backgrounds. This worked perfectly, just using

xcalib -i -alter

but now, xcalib only inverts the netbook screen. The second screen remains stubbornly unaffected.

Since xcalib has not changed, and it works on one screen, maybe something changed between Karmic and Lucid.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Display Trapped In 640x480

Mar 20, 2010

Gents:

Running x64-U_8.04.1/EVGA_nv9400/Viewsonic 19" LCD

On a concurrent forum--INSTALL-- thread I've reported being "trapped" in a 640x480 screen resolution after changing graphics cards. It is very difficult/impossible to use screen GUI-function as displays overlap and do-NOT "traverse".

I have got installed the NVidia GUI tool which reports the proper card, screen display ( 1280x1040 ) and the current X-WIn setting ( 640x480 ).

A poster on <INSTALL> suggested use of the CLI command <xrandr> to fix screen display ... thus perhaps allowing full GUI function for changing X-WIN setting. Is use of <xrandr> the best-available method for me to get out of the 640x480 "trap"?

Fedora :: F15 Kernel 2.6.38.8-35 Prevents Triple-head With Radeon Driver?

Jul 28, 2011

Yesterday I updated my F15 x86_64 system from kernel 2.6.38.6-27 to 2.6.38.8-35. After the reboot, my triple-head system complained of not having enough CRTCs and only 2 screens worked. Other components were also updated, including some X11 components, however selecting a fallback kernel at the grub prompt indicates this follows the kernel (fall back to old kernel has all 3 monitors working). xrandr --verbose on the 2.6.38.6-27 kernel shows each of the 3 monitors assigned to separate CRTC entries, with CRTCs 0 thru 5 available.

Same command on the new 2.6.38.8-35 system only shows CRTCs 0 & 1 available. My system using an XFX Radeon HD5450 card, with 3 interfaces: HDMI, DVI, VGA. The default Fedora open source "radeon" driver allows all 3 interfaces to be usable. However, with the new kernel, the loss of several CRTCs prevents the 3rd monitor from working.What are the thoughts from the community? I've searched various forums here and haven't seen similar symptoms reported. I'm looking for any direction/experience/thingsToTry from others before trying to open a bug report. (Attempts to use the Catalyst driver several months ago resulted in only 2 of the 3 connected monitors working.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Radeon HD4870 On Lucid Bar Appears Whilst Dual Screen?

May 7, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit and I'm having a problem with the graphics card.

I have dual screens, and I'm using the default card. My Left screen is perfectly normal but my right screen has a black bar, roughly 2cm wide, along the left hand side of it. And that hole screen is shifted to the left 2cm (so if I maximise a window in it you can't see about 2 cm of the right edge).

I'm not sure why this is happening. Worked on Karmic. Haven't installed anything, just the defaults. My graphics card is a Radeon HD 4870.

Also, I couldn't get Compiz to work with this card on Karmic, is it possible to get it to work here on Lucid? I heard they were improving the drivers. If so, how?

Debian Multimedia :: Keyboard And Mouse With No Response After LXDE Boot

Feb 11, 2015

I use the debootstrap to make a base Debian System of the ARM architecture for BananaPro [URL]... , and install the LXDE desktop. But the keyboard and mouse didn't response after the LXDE boot.

If I use the Debian system without the LXDE desktop, and it is normal. Meanwhile, I only installed the framebuffer driver, and can't find the right GPU driver to install.

Is caused by the lack of the GPU driver ? and what should i do ?

Debian Multimedia :: Keyboard And Mouse Freeze After Login In Squeeze

Feb 10, 2011

I have a problem with mouse and keyboard. Both freeze within 30sec to half an hour after logging into squeeze 64bit (using gnome). My hardware is Asus P7P55D EVO (tested with linux according to ASUS) with Intel i5 760 CPU. I use IBM keyboard and Trust PS2 mouse. I also have MSI HD4350 graphics card, that was at least listed on Ubuntu to be supported, worked fine also with Lenny.

When using same combination with Lenny (64-bit) I never found any problem with either keyboard nor mouse, even running long nights. However there was need to upgrade to Squeeze since it has newer kernel supporting the sensors on board my MB. I used same mouse and keyboard also on Ubuntu 9.10 and had never problems. However when I upgraded to new MB I started with Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit version and experienced same keyboard and mouse freeze as I have now in squeeze. Only way out from this status is hard reset using PC reset button.

I connected with putty to my linux box and found following (while the linux box was on frozen state) from dmesg on keyboard: :/var/log$ dmesg | grep -i keyboard [ 1.064628] input: AT Translated Set 2 keyboard as /devices/platform/i8042/serio0/input/input0

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Use Plug'n'play Mouse / Keyboard Remote As Lirc Device?

Mar 16, 2010

I've bought this remote control that sais it works in Vista, XP etc. without any driver. Basically it has a bunch of buttons that replace the mouse and a bunch of others that replace basic keyboard functions (arrows, enter, escape). It has a USB IR receiver so I thought I could simply use it as a lirc remote in Ubuntu.

However, it sais absolutely nothing on it except for "PCremote" so during lirc installation I have no idea what to choose. And, interestingly, I accidentally discovered that it works in Ubuntu, too, out of the box. Controlling the mouse and acting like a keyboard. Is there a way I can forfeit current functionality and just get it to work as a customizable lirc remote? Or even better, keep current functionality but change it only for certain apps (xbmc, vlc etc)?

Ubuntu :: Dual Head Setup - Multiple Conky

Jun 14, 2010

I am trying out conky for the first time and rather enjoying it. I have a small frustration though. I have a dual head setup and would like to have identical conky's showing on both monitors. I have tried creating two .conkyrc's (.conkyrc1 & .conkyrc2) and then using:-

Code:
$ conky -c config1
$ conky -c config2
to launch them, this results in only one of the two conky's displaying. I did at first think that maybe they were on top of eachother, but one conkyrc is set bottom_left, the other bottom_right so they should not be right??

When I try to run them as above terminal shows:-
Code:
gregg@burt:~$ conky -c config1
Conky: invalid configuration file 'config1'
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.
Conky: invalid num arg for top. Must be between 1 and 10.

Hardware :: Dual Head Graphics Cards

Jun 14, 2011

I'm building another desktop. This is not a gaming system (though some video does cross my path), it's primary focus is as an application development platform. The thing is based on a SuperMicro two CPU motherboard with a couple intel multi-cores, 16GB RAM, a hardware RAID, and CentOS 5.6 (64bit). To this mix I would like to add a solid dual-head graphics card. Something that will support a couple HP LP2465 monitors (not new but functioning well). Speed of rendering is not my biggest concern, stability and "real estate" (the monitors are 1920x1200 and I want all of it).

I've looked a little at the Matrox items and started researching nVidia, but would like to hear opinions from those "in the know".The motherboard, though a solid performer, may have just made this trip unnecessary. It has a quirk that I hadn't considered before. It has several PCI-X slots (64-bit @ 133MHz) but only one "PCI-Express 1 (x8) on a (x16) slot". Does that seem a little strange to anyone else? Not that there is just one PCI-E but that it will fit a x16 board but will only support x8 connections...

Ubuntu :: Dual Head On 2009 Mac Mini (nvidia 9400)?

Jan 28, 2010

I'm looking at the 2009 apple mac mini ([URL]and wondering if anyone has gotten dual head working? I'm putting two 17" or 19" monitors on, so nothing too adventurous. I know that I'll require the "Mini-DisplayPort-to-DVI" to get Dual DVI Adpaters, but I wanted to confirm that dual head would be supported from the start. I'm aware that there are issues with rebooting the device, possibly as a result of the wireless drivers. That doesn't bother me. Dual-head is a requirement I intend installing 9.10 and dual booting macos for firmware updates.

Ubuntu Networking :: VNC And Dual Head Setup (separate X Screens)?

Jan 2, 2011

I have my computer set up to use separate x screens for both of my monitors and almost everything works perfectly. With this set up I don't have any problem displaying flash in full screen on either monitor like I had with twinview. I have it set up this way so that I can use my TV to display mythtv and still use my computer monitor to browse the web, etc. The only problem is that I use my iphone with hipporemote to give me a wireless keyboard/mouse. When using twinview this was not a problem as it was just one large desktop spread over two monitors.

However, switching to separate x screens seems to have broken the functionality of the vnc server. When using my physical keyboard and mouse I can just move the cursor off the side of monitor 1 to control monitor 2, however, if I'm connected via vnc the cursor gets "trapped" inside the active monitor. I can interact with each screen as expected but if I want to switch the mouse/keyboard focus to the other monitor I have to go to the computer and move the mouse to the desired monitor, which obviously defeats the purpose of using the iphone as a wireless remote.

So my question is this. Is there a way to assign a hotkey combination to switch the focus of keyboard and mouse that the vnc server is controlling? Or could I set the vnc server to only control one of the two x screens?

OpenSUSE :: How To Connect Remotely To A Dual-head KDE 4.6 Desktop

Jun 22, 2011

In this particular example I am using NoMachine's NX, although the behaviour also occurs when running VNC for instance. I'd like to connect from my laptop (1 physical screen), to my desktop at work (2 physical screen) via NX. It all works but the following problem occurs: When I connect with my laptop to my desktop I (almost) always am connected to the 2nd physical screen, whereas all windows appear on this first screen. I can interact with my desktop, use the task manager etc, see which windows are running, but any application I start, starts on the first screen (which I cannot see) and for the life of me I cannot move them from screen1 to screen2 without dragging them (which obviously is impossible since I only see screen2).The obvious workaround is: *before* you connect disable the second screen via the display manager but for me this is a non-pratical work around because it requires a lot of actions before heading home. how I can connect from a single-head desktop to a dual-head desktop without crippeling my desktop experience?

Hardware :: Dual Head Monitors Under Nvidia With A Twist?

Oct 15, 2010

I have an Nvidia card that supports two monitors. Actually I have it setup. The problem I am having is I want to turn one of my monitors sideways so I can read forms easier. I can do this with just one monitor. RandR works fine with that. But it seems that when the system makes the two monitors into one long one it will not allow me to tweak the rotation in RandR.

Is there something I am missing. I deal with a lot of contracts and forms. And when I am reading them I hate scrolling. So I thought this could be an option. I have searched the net for 6 hours now. Maybe I do not know what I should be searching for.
