Ubuntu Multimedia :: Connect Laptop To CRT TV Through VGA Port 10.10
Feb 26, 2011
I own an asus u50a, which has an intel cooperation mobile 4 chipset integrated graphics card. It has a vga port on it (in addition to an hdmi) and i would like to see if it is possible to connect it to the s-video or the rca ports on my big CRT television set. I have been endlessly confused by what it is that i need to accomplish the task of seeing the same image on both a laptop and a television screen, both in the matters of hardware and software. What should I do considering these circumstances to achieve my ends?
Off and on for some time now I've been using a Toshiba x205-s9359 laptop with (11.4/KDE4.6) during the day as a general purpose laptop using the onboard LCD and in the evenings to run XBMC to play movies on a TV using an HDMI cable (no cable TV on our little island & Satellite TV is poor in the rainy season).
The video card is an NVidia GeForce 8700M GT with NVidia's proprietary driver v. 275.09.07 (installed the "hard way").
Code: ~> aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC268 Analog [ALC268 Analog] Subdevices: 1/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Now the Audio/Video both go to the TV via HDMI if it's connected prior to boot, if not the laptop works normally.
If you try this with XBMC don't forget to go to set the XBMC settings to "HDMI" as needed.
Right now I have a machine set up running Fedora. I have configured inittab to accept Console Logins, but I am having problems getting my netbook running PuTTY to connect. How would I go about finding the Host Name and Port to connect to?
My wireless (Toshiba laptop, 10.04 64 bit) is just hanging when trying to connect. It was working fine but now nothing. My Wireless antennae is on and my other laptop can connect with no problems. I have restarted the router and the laptop twice.
would it be possible for anyone to give me step-by-step instructions on how to set up port forwarding on my laptop? I've been using Karmic Koala and just upgraded to Lucid Lynx and not really bothered to port-forward before, so not too sure where to start - googling gives me a lot of terms I don't understand.
I cannot get sound out of the headphone port on a laptop. Headphones are plugged in, and sound comes out of the internal speakers. Windows behaves normally (sound switches to headphones when headphones are inserted).
It did work in Linux at one point, but something changed, we're just not sure what. Rebooting doesn't fix. This appears to occur whether or not PulseAudio is running. code...
This works in Windows: You plug headphones in, the internal speakers stop making noise, and noise comes out the head phones. Windows says I only have two sound cards: the HDMI port (which I don't care about) and the "sound card", which it claims is a "Conexant Pebble High Definition SmartAudio" In Windows, both the internal speakers and the headphone jack show up as one soundcard, which in my experience, is typical. (This is a laptop)
I have older Siemens mobile phone and I decided to play with it. I wanted to flash firmware, patch it and so. But how can I determin on which port is it connected. Mobile is not turned on, so can I see which port physically exists and a cable is connected to.
when i fisrt signed up for this forums i accidently posted this same topic in the first place i found apropriate(network/wirless) and i just realised i didn't look hard enough so i marked my old post as solved, please admin delete that one. ubuntu server 10.04 LTS running ubuntu desktop on top(for my lack of skill)ok nitty-gritty. i have been learning to use linux for a few months now and i like it but i cannot access my server through WAN on any ports, yes i have them all open and enabled and associated on my router properly. i even tryed turning off firewall on here and i have tryed a list of misc. things. is there something i am not doing that one might initialy do when first starting an ubuntu server?
How do I get mysql 3306 port to be seen on my network?
Here is my setup: ---Desttop - WIndows Vista Ultimate (192.168.0.101) --------VBox ------------Guest - Ubuntu 9.10 (Joomla CMS Development) (192.168.56.106) ---Server - Ubuntu 9.10 (192.168.0.100) --------VBox ------------Guest - Ubuntu 9.10 (Joomla Production) (192.168.56.104) ------------Guest - Ubuntu 9.10 (MySql Database) (192.168.56.105)
I can ping all OS from any OS, I can connect to a shares, I can connect to the web server. I can do a netscan and display the open ports and the services for those ports except for MySql. How do get MySql to showup, so I can connect to it from my Joomla CMS? I came from openSuse and I like how they have modules to do this automatically. What do I use with Ubuntu to get the same results?
I went to shut down a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop, and about halfway through the little yellow/orange bar the screen went black and it said: "xxx.xxxxxx hub 2.0: 1.0 connect-debounce failed port y disabled" (xxx.xxxxxx being a different number string each time, and y being a port number)
It gives me that message for 3, sometimes 4, ports--3 times (port 2, port 3, port 1, port 2, port 3, port 1, etc.). Once I got that while starting up. Near the end of that colored bar, it gave me the black screen, and then this big long list of stuff it was checking. When it got to starting Bluetooth, it started that connect-debounce thing for all the ports. Then there was some other stuff that disappeared faster than I could write it down. However, Ubuntu did a system check the next day, and that start up issue disappeared--at start up and shut down. A couple of days ago, it started the connect-debounce thing on shutdown again. Ubunutu did a system check, but it did not fix the shut down issue or get the USB mouse/items to work.

I can't seem to establish a conncction to my site (that I'm hosting in the same computer as the gFTP client- running Lucid Lynx desktop as a server). My site is 'out there', with a domain etc. and also I work on it with localhost. I wanted to use ftp as Joomla has a 'ftp layer' for files permissions etc. But it keeps saying that I can't connect, or the connection 'was reset by a peer' whatever that means. For 'hostname' I use site.com (site is my site's name) and even tried the whole thing like http://www.site.com (I clicke on 'connect to remote, and enter that in the url). or just put it where 'host' goes (when I'm not using localhost) For user name and pass, I just enter what I usually put to access the administrator's back panel in joomla, but maybe I am supposed to use what I use to log on to ubuntu when I start my computer? note sure. Anyway I used a telnet command in the terminal and found that port 21 was blocked. MY isp says they don't block any ports so I don't know. I was able to do this last year so I don't know what is so hard about this lol In the router, I have 'ftp 21 to 21 and ip address 192.168.1.100 (ip is the same for http which is working as I have my site up) now it seems to be open as I used a command at the terminal (found from google). It's open but my ftp still can't connect to my server either localhost or to my site. there is no firewall blocking it and I think my router is set right.
Wow, don't know why I seem to have so much trouble with this ftp stuff. I have so start all over a few times, reinstalling Lucid Lynx destop all over, and adding the needed files to make it a server. I am just trying to do something simple for now- just having a localhost server environment to develop my joomla website, and later on host it from my server 'out there' (I already have a domain name and dynDNS service with nameservers etc. but don't want to do that yet, as I have in the past with my router forwarding port 80, and actually got hacked! so I don't want to do that again until I learn more about security) My problem right now is that I can't even get the localhost ftp to 'connect to the server'. i know the host name (localhost) and username/password that I set when I set up Lucid Lynx, and I'm sure that is what I use for the ftp usernamepassword, host etc. And I put port 21 for the port. I see from 'Shields Up' that my port 21 is closed. So I followed advice on a thread and entered a few commands in the terminal to ad iptables etc. But still, port 21 is closed and I can't install components with the Joomla installer in admin's backend. And I can't use fireftp to even change permissions in my local folders. What do i do next, open port 21 somehow? I saw a terminal command about opening port 21 that was simple but I forget it.
I have setup an OpenVPN server on my server box, it had been working perfectly until today. It operates on port 1194 which I am now unable to connect to (tried telnet). I have checked all the firewall rules and they still allow the port and I have also checked to ensure that OpenVPN is still listening to the port, which it's not but I have tried restarting the service and the box which dosent make any difference. The only thing that has changed is that yesterday I installed Openfire, could this have broken something?
I need to connect to a serial port server via /dev/tty.. . The serial port IP addresses are the server's IP address with a particular port # (10001, 10002 etc). The way this seems to work is to create a pseudo-tty and somehow link or configure it to point to the serial server's IP/port #'s.
I would like to connect my pc to the TV but the vga cable is not compatible with my analog Tv.The pc that i'm using is equipped with everything, except it hasn't got an agp port for my TV-OUT video card.I have a second motherboard with cpu(+power source) on it, but it's too slow so i don't want to use it.So! My idea is to connect the pc to the second motherboard, and use the second motherboard just for the agp and the TV-out video card.(i really don't have no money for signal converters and new video cards at all)
My config : Dell PowerEdge 2900III 16Gb RAM 2 arrays RAID1 (2*(2*500Gb)) CentOS5.5 VMWare 2.0.2 (with workaround of downgrade glibc to CentOS5.3)
Since the upgrade from CentOS5.4 to CentOS5.5, it seems the sshd is crashing every other day.I can access to the VMWare webserver, but no way to connect through ssh port 22.The only "workaround" is a hard reboot of the server, and with luck, I can access to the server through ssh.I checked /var/log/secure, it looks like time to time when the server start, it does not start the sshd service, there is no entry at all for the time the server started up. For instance today, the server has been started early this morning, but the first entry was found after a hard reboot this evening : Jun 3 18:19:14 hercules sshd: Server listening on 0.0.0.0 port 22.
I am getting "ssh:connect to host restart port 22: Connection refused" error when trying to start "ssh" in Ubuntu. I uncommented the port 22 in ssh_config, I dont have iptables setup...Did try to check if the port is listening using the netstat -an | grep "LISTEN" & couldnt find.
I have a Windows machine on which NX Client has been installed. I wanted to test if I could access my Ubuntu box. The Ubuntu Box has NX Server, Node and Client installed. When I try to log in from the Windows machine using NX Client with my Ubuntu username and password I get an error connection refused.
The following service is running: OpenBSD Secure Shell server sshd How can I resolve the issue?
i am using 9.10 karmic. Firewall is enabled. added ports with ufw allow [portnumber], and i still cannot connect to a port number. iv tryed ufw allow ssh/tcp but that does not work. the ports work when i disable the firewall and i dont want to do that.
ufw is available in all new installations of Ubuntu since 8.04 LTS, but is disabled by default. The standard Ubuntu installation has a no open service ports policy, so enabling the firewall by default doesn't gain any extra security in the default installation, but could provide confusion for people new to Ubuntu when new software that is installed does not work because of restrictive firewall rules. As a result, when first adding ufw to Ubuntu it was decided that users must 'opt-in' to using the firewall. In Ubuntu 9.04 and later, you can enable ufw during installation using preseeding. See /usr/share/doc/ufw/README.Debian for details.
I have 2 HBA's in my system, in that one shows as READY state and the other HBA shows as DEAD state. I have asked the datacenter guys to to connect the HBA to another switch port and I rebooted the server. After reboot the second HBA came to READY state but after some time again it went to DEAD state.
Host adapter:loop state = <DEAD>, flags = 0x45a03
Is this the problem with the server or with the storage end
i have BSNL internet connection . I can connect in ubutnu using usb post but not working in kubuntu anymore i think i dont have the drivers for that ! how do i download drivers ? i have xp , and how can i installin kubuntu ??
I am trying to connect to my linux server using an SCP Key (PPK), but I can't get through using Putty, WinSCP, etc. I think Port 22 might not be open, but I don't know how to open it if I can't at least access the server using SSH.
