Ubuntu Multimedia :: PC To LCD Over HDMI Taskbar Out Of Sight

Feb 5, 2010

I'm running a clean install of 9.10 on a crispy new pc (Packard Bell I-extreme) I've connected my pc via HDMI to my Samsung 5 LCD tv (source is marked/named 'pc') by means of an NVIDIA.The problem is that the x screen is too large for my tv. I see the 'working area' but the top and bottom taskbar fall of the screen.The current settings (which I of course double checked) worked when the pc was connected to the lcd via VGA cable. X Server settings and TV resolution are set to the same values...(1920x1080)

Ubuntu :: GRUB Lost Sight Of Windows XP?

Sep 1, 2010

I did a dual boot install of Ubuntu 9.10. After that, when I rebooted my Windows XP was gone? I did update-grub and still nothing. I popped in the GRUB Super boot Disk 2 and browsed around, I think i found it but it says "Error: Invalid Signature". Iv googled and havent found a solution to this yet.

I booted off a XP CD into the recovery console, it sees my Windows partition and lets me get into it and browse all my files. So I know its there. I then tried fixmbr then fixboot and now all it loads is my Recovery Partition. I booted up SuperGrubDisk again and same results, it just sees my Ubuntu. I reinstalled grub and back to square 1. Then I tried a checkdsk /r and tried it all over again. Nothin'.

I have some encrypted files on my drive using EFS....i guess it would be ok to loose them, but I put a lot of work into them..

how I can "wakeup" my XP again?

In Windows 7 when you hover over an open application in the taskbar, it shows a small image of that application. Is there a way this can be done in Linux?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Rythmbox Opens To Taskbar Only?

May 29, 2011

Rythmbox does not open a window on the desktop, but its icon appears in the upper taskbar. I have to click on the icon to open the Rythmbox window to select songs etc.

I'm sure there's a simple fix for this, but I haven't been able to locate it.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Manage KDE Panel / Taskbar

Jan 30, 2016

I tried Google and searching here to no avail...

Running Debian Jessie 8.3
Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64
KDE SC Version 4.14.2 with plasma

I am trying to remove some icons from the "taskbar"/panel and find the only real options are adding MORE widgets, adding another panel, or deleting the whole panel.I simply want to remove a duplicate and re-arrange the icons without having to delete the panel, add another panel, and careful add, in the order I want the icons, the widgets right-click on the panel and I get "Task Manager Settings ALT+D,S" and "Panel Options" which offers no visible means of managing the panel.I condemned to deleting the panel and starting over?

Debian Multimedia :: XFCE Lost Menus And Taskbar?

Aug 12, 2011

I am using XFCE on Debian Squeeze.

Last night, when I logged in, I only got the desktop with whatever icons I have set on the desktop. The menu bar and the taskbars have disappeared completely.

Is there a way to recover this? Is this a common behaviour? I used to get this problem when I tried out QIMO.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: VLC Fullscreen Doesn't Cover The Taskbar?

Dec 4, 2009

How can I fix the following, borderline irritating issue?

I've tried all of VLCs different Video Output Methods. It didn't use to have this behaviour either, it just began happening now. My taskbar is set to "Always Visible" as I hate "Auto Hide" and I don't want my windows to go above or below it...

Debian Multimedia :: LXDE Desktop And Taskbar Icon Configuration?

Aug 1, 2011

The first issue is adding launch icons to the task bar. I can add launchers, but cannot figure out how to link them to applications. It is only half a problem, because putting links on the desktop is easy, but I prefer having launchers on the task bar so the desktop is not cluttered.The big problem is placement of desktop icons. I like to put icons on the right side of the screen, and more importantly, I like to group related icons. For example, if I had a folder or document for Linux and another for Debian, I want them grouped together. I also like arranging by category: folders in one column, documents and images in another and launchers (if any) in a third. However, if there is way to enable desktop icons to be moved, I cannot figure it out. Icons are fixed on the left side of the screen with folders first in alphabetical order, then documents/images in alphabetical or numerical order, and launch icons last.My guess is icons can be moved, but I am not computer literate enough to figure it out. It does not make sense that the task bar can be placed on the top, bottom, left or right, but desktop icons cannot be moved. I have tried every preference setting, but there are no relevant options.Am I over-looking something that is not obvious or is it a strange deficiency with LXDE?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Get Sound Through HDMI

May 20, 2010

I have an HP 8510w laptop and I run ubuntu 10.04 out of an external harddrive.

I have no problem getting video over hdmi using the latest proprietary nvidia drivers however I cannot get sound through the HDMI cable.

I have read around without being able to find a solution.

Running "aplay -l" shows only my intel sound card and also there is no hdmi sound interface in the sound preferences (Only the normal output interface).

I am using the latest proprietary nvidia drivers (Believe it to be 1.95) and the graphics card is a Quadro FX 570.

how I can get sound out to work via the hdmi cable?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 No Sound Through Hdmi?

Nov 12, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10. Everything is working fine except I have no sound. When I use the command 'aplay -D hw:0,0 somefile.wav', I can get sound through headphones attached to the headphone jack. But I can't get any sound through the speakers. This is a dual boot desktop and the sound works fine under Windows, so no problems with hardware. The PC monitor is connected through a hdmi cable and I would need sound through the speakers. The output of alsa-info.sh is at

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Or DVI Mythbuntu 10.10

Dec 23, 2010

I have an ECS gf7100pvt-m3 that has the Nvidia MCP73 chipset that supports HDMI out. Unfortunately the MB only has a DVI connector which from what I have read is supposed to cross wire the audio to the correct pins on the HDMI (have a ticket in with ECS to see if like ATI there is a special adapter).

I have tried every thing but only Analog audio is working.

I've tried listed on these links to no avail:

The only error is the at the Aumix isn't touching....I can select HDMI or IEC958 1 etc etc and the audio mixer shows full blue as if it should be working but I can't get VLC or MythTV to output sound.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get VGA To HDMI Converter?

May 10, 2011

What are some good VGA to HDMI converters that work well with linux? Any suggestions? I don't know the resolution I'm working with just yet, but it appears to be a 42" hd lcd tv/monitor. I think there's a VGA port on the back, but I'd rather route the signal through HDMI for better resolution.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Audio Over HDMI

May 12, 2011

I have been trying for a while now to get the audio over HDMI working from my PNY G210 graphics card and mythtv but with no luck.

I have followed this guide [URL]

prior to following this I only had my motherboards on board audio showing up but I am now at the stage that I can see the HDMI audio and select it and un mute it but still cannot get any sound out of it.

As a side effect after following the steps from the link above, now every time I boot the computer up my on board audio is muted so I need to un mute it from sound preferences.

This is my audio config as it stands:
scott@MythtvFrontend:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: AD198x Analog [AD198x Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1

[Code].....

The mother board is a an ASUS MN32-SLI deluxe and I have 2 graphics cards in it, a 9600GT to run the 2 monitors connected and a G210 which I would like to use to connect to my TV using the HDMI output. At the moment I am using the VGA output from the G210 to the TV and a separate audio out from the computer which was working fine but the audio is now always muted on startup.

I don't think it is an issue with my mythtv settings as I cannot get any audio over the HDMI using speaker-test (on board analogue audio works ok).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound Over HDMI - GTX 550 Ti

Jun 9, 2011

I recently purchased a new video card a GeForce 550 Ti, but I haven't been able to get sound working over HDMI.

I'm running the latest version of Ubuntu (11.04) and have installed the proprietary drivers through Additional Drivers.

Code:

The card is being picked up by alsa and I've configured Ubuntu to use HDMI in sound preferences:

aplay -l:

Code:

When I check alsamixer this is what I see:

ALSA reports that version 1.0.23 is installed, although I thought 11.04 came with version 1.0.24?

cat /proc/asound/version:

Code:

I've tried purging ALSA and reinstalling it but it didn't help. Is there anything I can do? Does anyone know if this card is supported by ALSA properly yet? I hate the thought of having to go to Windows to get this working

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No HDMI Audion In 11.04?

Aug 21, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04 I noticed that HDMI audio stopped working. When I connect the HDMI cable to the TV the image is transfered but there is not sound.I tried several things, starting with checking the sound preferences. I have there two devices, one for internal audio and another for HDMI. When I select the HDMI output I have no sound. I tried to run gnome-alsamixer and it shows two devices as well, but for the HDMI it gives me no parameter at all there.Device configuration seems ok and aplay -l gives me the follwoing info:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC269 Analog [ALC269 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

I also tried some troubleshooting pages like this but couldn't solve the problem (in fact when trying one of the suggestions of this page it messed up the whole sound configuration of my laptop and had to reinstall alsa driver modules as explained here to come back to the previous state with only the HDMI problem).What makes me really upset is that with the previous Ubuntu version (10.10) HDMI audio worked just fine then after upgrading to 11.04 it stopped working.

Another interesting thing about this problem is that when I play a video from a web page, for example from ....., and try to use HDMI audio, the video runs much faster than normal with no sound. If I switch to internal audio, while still sending the video over HDMI, it works fine with the audio playing in the laptop and the video in my TV.

Debian Multimedia :: Testing/KDE 4 - Wrong Image For Taskbar Icon Shortcut?

Oct 5, 2010

I've got a desktop "konsole" shortcut that works great, it has a "konsole" icon on it that fits well.

I've copied this desktop shortcut to a taskbar shortcut (via drag'n drop).

The result is a usable shortcut, but with a wrong icon image.

I've reproduced the problem three times for different apps and obtained three times the same icon (but the shortcut is however good).

If I open the configuration popup, it displays the correct icon ...

Indeed, I found a way to change the icon : I must modify the icon of the filetype associated with "desktop" filetype ... but after a reboot, all icons will changed Strange isn't it ? have a look of the screenshot

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Over HDMI With Nvidia ION ?

Jan 4, 2010

I am having trouble getting sound over hdmi with my Nvidia MCP7A HDMI. The strange thing is that everything works fine in a Live disc, but once I do a fresh install of that Live disc I get no sound, even though my configuration is exactly the same (as far as I can tell). I've checked the little things like alsamixer volumes, aplay -l, etc etc. Everything looks good to me. I can reproduce on multiple TVs so its not the receiver. Video drivers are the same in both live version and installed. aplay -l detects my device. sound/pci/hda/patch_nvhdmi.c already has my correct vendor id in it. Perhaps the following info can figure out what my installed environment is lacking.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Output On A Meerkat ION ?

Jan 14, 2010

I work at a television station and we recently purchased a System76 Meerkat ION with the intended purpose of using the HDMI out port for broadcast purposes. We have an existing AJA HA5 box which is capable of converting HDMI to HD-SDI (HD-SDI being the baseband standard in professional broadcasting).

The converter is only willing to accept the following values:

1920 x 1080 @ 29.97
1280 x 720 @ 59.94

I am wondering if it is possible to manually configure Xorg.conf (or whatever file is being edited by NVIDIA X Server Settings) to tell the HDMI output to only produce the latter resolution (1280 x 720).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get HDMI Sound Reliably?

Jan 23, 2010

I can't get HDMI sound reliably when using Ubuntu. The strange thing is, if I repeatedly reboot the computer, eventually the sound will work. This can take anything up to 10 reboots. Once working, it will keep on working as long as the machine is not rebooted or shut down. HDMI sound works fine under Windows.

aplay -l will only list the Intel (analogue and S/PDIF) hardware, not the Nvidia, even when it is working. Selecting between analogue and digital output under Sound Preferences has no effect on the HDMI either way.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Output Over Hdmi Is Too Large

Mar 28, 2010

im running ubutu 9.10 with the standard nvida proprietry drivers as a media center. the output is over hdmi, through a a/v reciver and onto a lcd television. my proble mis that the output is too large for the screen even whan outputting at a smaller resoultion than the native resolution of the television. this means that the top, bottom, left and right of the output is chopped off. in windows i can adjust the size of the output useing some sliders to get the image to fit the screen. however these are only available in the windows drivers and i cannot find a substitute in the ubuntu ones. one way of doing it may be to output black bard at the sides of the screen but i have no idea how to do this.
