Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Set Desired Resolution 10.04?

General :: Getting Desired Resolution And Refresh Rate In Ubuntu?

Aug 13, 2010

I cannot get my desired resolution and refresh rate in Ubuntu (10.04, Lucid). I want to run at the best my poor monitor can, which in Windows (XP through 7) is 1152*864 with a refresh rate of 72Hz.

I want these setting in Ubuntu, and many grey hairs have been produced in trying to make it happen. I can get the correct resolution, but not the refresh rate.

I'm using the proprietary Nvidia drivers, which are up to date.

System info:

I have a CRT Monitor connected to a laptop via the VGA connector. The monitor is a 16" AOC brand (this is all I know, and for all my efforts I cannot find the manual for it from just this information). The graphics card is a GeForce 9600M GS

Things I've tried:

Using the regular default drivers Editing Xorg.conf in all manner of ways (seems to always be ignored upon reboot. I don't get that). 3 days of googling Asking at the Ubuntu forums.

How can I do this, if I can?

how all of this works, how xorg.conf and the Nvidia program interact and such.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Install File After Extracted To Desired Directory

Jan 23, 2010

I am trying to install a program called libdvdcss0.0.1, it was a tar,gz2 file and I already extracted it via terminal to /opt/ but now that its extracted, I read the install readme file and tried going by those directions. Not working here is my results on that:

scott@Home:~$ cd /opt/libdvdcss-0.0.1/
scott@Home:/opt/libdvdcss-0.0.1$ /configure --help
bash: /configure: No such file or directory
scott@Home:/opt/libdvdcss-0.0.1$ configure --help
configure: command not found
scott@Home:/opt/libdvdcss-0.0.1$ make install
cd extras/libdvdcss && make install
make[1]: Entering directory `/opt/libdvdcss-0.0.1/extras/libdvdcss'
mkdir -p /videolan
m 644 videolan/dvdcss.h /videolan
make[1]: m: Command not found
make[1]: [install] Error 127 (ignored)
mkdir -p
mkdir: missing operand
Try `mkdir --help' for more information.
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/opt/libdvdcss-0.0.1/extras/libdvdcss'
make: *** [install] Error 2

I don't know if its something I am doing wrong or what but everytime I try and install a file this way or by the programs readme file it always goes wrong in someway shape or form. The only way I have installed a program successfully is through kpackagekit and I am desperately trying to learn terminal's language here, the only thing standing in my way from switching from windows to linux entirely is these damn problems.

Ubuntu :: Camera - Allow To Bulk Export Images At The Desired Size And Quality

Jun 6, 2011

I recently have bought a digital reflex. After a few shootings and so on it's now come the time to use my Ubuntu at best to work with my camera. Can you recommend to me some software (if it's an all in 1 product the better)

What I'm really interested in is handling RAW format (.cp2 if I'm correct?), tagging renaming and organizing my pictures (both with and without filters and so on applied on them). Also it would be great if it would allow me to bulk export images at the desired size and quality. (I've tried digiKam but it doesn't import pictures from my camera)

Debian :: 6.0.1x86_64 - Desired Domain Doesn't Open

Jun 6, 2011

HeI'm currently having a problem with a Debian 6 server. The server has a subdomain given from the hosting company. On the machine we'll be hosting a domain with a different name from the hosting's. The domain is pointing to the server's IP address but if you try to ping it will not return any replies. If you ping the machine's subdomain it returns ping. At first I though it's a firewall blocking the ICMP but that's not the case. I've installed apache and tried to open the domain from a browser - the result:

1. The subdomain and the IP address works perfect
2. The desired domain doesn't open.

I'm coming from Slackware and most probably I'm missing something. It may be something really little that I'm missing. What may be the problem? Is it coming from debian or there's a firewall blocking the domain?

Fedora Networking :: Ping: Record Route: No Message Of Desired Type

I try to boot Fedora 10 without initrd. System boots normally if I make in some nodes in /dev such as /dev/console. Almost everything works fine, but when I try ping with record route option -R I get this error

If I boot with initrd ping -R works without this error. Iptables not running.

Also this error appear when I try to boot from LiveCD F11-Alpha-i686-Live-KDE.iso or other Fedora 10 LiveCDs.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Resolution Too Low On 10.04 ?

Jul 30, 2011

I recently installed (dual booting) Ubuntu 10.04 on a Samsung QX411-W01 running Windows 7. It's a system with with two graphics drivers (Intel HD 3000 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M, 1GB).

Right now when I try to change the monitor settings, Ubuntu doesn't seem to detect my proper capabilities (currently only allowing 1024x768 when Windows 7 is as good as 1366x768. )

I don't really know how to go about fixing this issue. I've tried reading through the forums, but I'm not finding any solutions.

Also I am unable to turn on any form of desktop effects. It seems the issue is with the driver.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Set Screen Resolution

Apr 2, 2010

I'm having problems adjusting my screen resolution. I'm using Nvidia Geforce FX5300 video card and Samsung T220P LCD screen with resolution of 1920x1200. After installing the Nvidia driver I went to system -> preferences -> display in order to change the resolution to 1920x1200. Unfortunately, the available resolutions were only 640x480 and 320x240. I tried to set the resolution manually, using the advanced button, but when I did this everything was extremely big on my screen.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Changing Resolution For Usb Camera?

May 22, 2010

I've been having a fit with Ubuntu (even tried updating to the new version). I have a USB camera (1.3mp- 1024x768 ) that I need to observe and capture images with (microphotography). I've downloaded and installed multiple packages, but have not found any way to change the default resolutions for V4l2. The resolution closest to what I need is 1024x816, but the video is torn and unusable. One program, Kamoso, worked fine in 640x480 mode, but as soon as I upgraded to Ubuntu 10, it went to the higher resolution (1024x816) which doesn't work right.

Is there some way to force v4l2 into a 1024x768 mode? The camera is a Tucsen 1.3mp microscope camera. I've emailed the company for more information and to see if they would email me the software/drivers (I lost the driver disk in a fire), but nothing so far from them.

The programs I've installed and tried: Camorama, Kamoso, Xsane, Cheese, VLC media player, v4l2ctrl, v4l2ucp, v4lctl, v4l-info. Camorama doesn't work, Kamoso- you couldn't change resolutions (ditto for Xsane), Cheese - I can change resolutions, but they have these crazy values that don't work, VLC media I cannot change either. I'm supposed to be able to use v4l2ucp to change settings, but I don't get the screen that the preview for the program (in Ubuntu Software) showed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Resolution Too Low With Intel I810

Upon rebooting, my resolution is stuck at either 800x600 or 640x480. I've been searching around for a while now, and none of the fixes I've looked at have worked with my architecture.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Set Monitor Resolution?

Jul 16, 2010

I just switched monitors to a Viewsonic VX2025 and I am unable to get beyond 1280 x 1024 using the nvidia x server settings. My graphics card is a GeForce 5200. These are connected with a DVI plug. I would like to be able to set my resolution to 1920 x 1080. (Also, the card and monitor worked at 1920 x 1080 in a previous windows machine.)

I have done a fair bit of searching and it appears that my issue is either the x configuration file or EDID. After 2 days of working with this it's gotten confusing to say the least. So, I'm looking to see if others have had a similar problem and how to solve it. I have not altered an x config file before, so not exactly sure of where to begin.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Card And Resolution Not Detected

Sep 6, 2010

After a while I decided to give ubuntu another go so I set up a dual boot configuration. Everything works well except my graphics card. I have 2 problems (don't know if they are connected)To start with, it's a laptop with an onboard Radion 3200 and it has another ATI Mobility Radeon HD4570 built in. I have an external screen attached to my laptop. (1920x1080)When Ubuntu first booted it asked me if I wanted to install proprietary drivers, so I did that. Now when I took a look in the control center it showed my two monitors but they were both attached to the 3200 and I can't seem to find anything about the other (better) card. It does not appear in the proprietary drivers, I can't (I think) select it in the configuration utility.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Force The Screen Resolution

Dec 16, 2010

I have my Xubuntu box connected to a 1920x1200 LCD monitor via a KVM switch. If the KVM is set to the Xubuntu box when I boot, all's well, but if the KVM is set to the other machine, Xubuntu boots into a 800x600 resolution. This behavior started with Maverick, when I was running Lucid. the correct resolution was set no matter the position of the KVM switch. Is there some place in Maverick that I need to set the resolution to 1920x1200 so it is set correctly regardless of the KVM?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting 1920 X 1200 Resolution

Jan 3, 2011

I've only been using it for about 6 hours. I'm impressed by what I've seen so far, but I'm having trouble getting a higher screen resolution.

I have an Acer Aspire 5536 with an ATI Radeon 3200 graphics card. I installed Ubuntu 10.10 with Wubi to dual boot alongside Windows 7. When I go to change the screen resolution, I can not choose a higher one than 1366x768. I would really appreciate it if someone could help me get a resolution of 1920x1200.

Like I said, I'm a Ubuntu newbie (and I don't have much savvy on graphics cards either)
