My video card developed problems, so I followed the suggestion in this thread:
Quote: Boot into recovery mode, then choose root, for a command prompt and enter Code: dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
but my ubuntu 10.04 32-bit system still won't boot. Shortly after the ubuntu logo comes up, before the login, my screen goes black and there is no more video signal. What else can I do to reset the video configuration? The card only has this info on it: I could put the card back in the system, reboot, and then pre-configure the system to drop to the intel 865G on-board video, but the msi card has intermittent problems and will spontaneously re-boot several times during the first ten minutes of turning on the system.
My system: Pentium 4 3.6 GHz, 3 Gb DDR ram, GeForce 210 video card, Ubuntu 10.04.
I have previously used Cinelerra-cv (on Karmic) and recently Openshot (on Lucid) with not much trouble. I have been sampling other video editors (Kdenlive, avidemux, kino etc). Now I have my video card crashing whichever I use, mainly when trying to load clips. I have disabled Compiz, uninstalled all video editors and then reinstalled one at a time. I still get early video crashes whichever I try.
I'm trying to design an inexpensive large scale DNS server but fail to find any metrics or methods to base scalabilty.Can anyone offer information on building a stable dedicated DNS server? That might be able to scale well.
I'm just curious if anybody knows how to change the default settings in gnome-mplayer from it using video0 as the video input (which is my built-in webcam), to say video1 (which is my external usb tv tuner). There is no gui option for this.
My issue is not being able to use it for analog video, though it's not a huge deal because I figured out the same very thing for tvtime (video0 to video1). It'd just be another option.
I'm vaguely remembering a video stream ripper that was open source and could be compiled for linux, mac, and windows. It's name ended with ++ and I can't remember anything else Basically, it was like StreamTransport but open source and multiprotocol capable. Can anybody help me find it again? I'd be open to alternatives too of course! My basic need is to rip anything being rendered by my video card.
i just instaled bt4 on my hdd and i have a problem with instaling drivers... i cant find and install driver for my video card nvidia 8200 integrated on motherboard. exacly i got the problem with changeing video resolution... i have only 640x480 and 800x600, and here is the problem, i cant put it in 1024x768..
Getting the error: Code: Select allThe required package keybinder was not found on your system. *** Please install keybinder (atleast version 0.2.2) or adjust *** the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you *** installed the package in a nonstandard prefix so that *** pkg-config is able to find it.
I have installed everything available in the jessie repo with "keybinder" in the name. It seems like my path variable is configured correctly:
After a post on the wine forums came to the discovery that my ATI radeon 4850 graphics card is causing much trouble in my ubuntu machine because of the lack of support. And because of that I cannot play my favorite games through wine. So now I'm saving some money to buy a new graphic card. A nvidia this time. Now I don't know all that much about graphic cards, but I am looking for a card that works well on ubuntu that equals the performance of my old 4850 and fits my P5Q pro motherboard. I myself don't know much about good graphic cards so if I go off to buy something without good advice I probably end up with something that does not work or fit or something like that.
We at church are going to build a new computer to use with Datasoul, therefore I need to use 3 monitors.I've been searching about it and it seems very hard to configure Ubuntu to use 3 monitors. I know in Windows it is very easy to configure, but our budget is very small and we cannot afford to purchase a Windows license, so I need to know which video cards to purchase in order to be easier to configure; ATI or NVidia?
I'm looking to put a new video card in my desktop. I need one that will be able to handle H.264 at 1920x1080, and I would like to find one that can do HDMI with audio. Shopping for video cards, as I heard somewhere, is the kind of thing that makes you want to bang your head against a wall until you go blind, because then you won't need to worry about it any more... someone will be able to recommend a model, or at least a chipset or something, before I rip my own eyes out.
I currently use "MSI Radeon HD 3650 Graphics Card - ATi Radeon HD 3650 750MHz - 512MB GDDR3 SDRAM - PCI Express" that have no HDMI and some problems with Ubuntu. Due to the Ubuntu compatibility problems I decided to ask you guys for recommendations before upgrading to a new video card.The only "demand" is that the card must have dual HDMI outputs, one for the monitor and one for the TV.
I am attempting to make a video machine only... which mean I have a Compaq 6435cl and I have installed the latest verion of ubuntu on it. All I want this machine to do is play video from off the net on my LCD HD TV. The video on board was all choppy when going into full screen mode so I put in a 3dfx Voodoo card and the same thing happens. I cannot figure out how to install the drivers for this card in ubuntu so I was wondering if I should by a new video card. Do you have a recomended video card for ubuntu that would push HD video?
I'm working right now with a newly installed Lucid 64-bit. Everything it's fine, but I would like to use the dual monitor for my work, and so I decided to ask to buy me a video card, since what I have now is an onboard graphic that doesn't allow me to do it. I don't need to play games (well I don't think my boss will be happy about it ), and I would rather go for a not expensive solution. But I have some doubts regarding the compatibility with my linux. I found several things on the web, but nothing regarding the video cards that I individuated. If the card is auto detected, it would be better of course.
The cards I was interested are:
ASUS RADEON HD4350 1GB DDR2 SAPPHIRE RADEON HD5450 512MB DDR3
But then i've seen on the web you might have problems with ATI in linux and so I went looking also for Nvidia which I found is generally better implemented under linux: ASUS GEFORCE GT 210 512MB DDR2
PALIT GEFORCE GT 220 SUPER 512MB DDR2 I don't have many models among which to choose, because of some conventions at my workplace. The tables of compatibility with ubuntu that I found are all related with much more expensive models, or models that I don't have in my lists. Could somebody tell me if one (or more) of the cards mentioned above work under ubuntu 10.6 64-bit? I have a Hewlett Packard system with:
HP 3674h motherboard Intel core2 duo 3.16 GHz 8Gb RAM 250 HD
im having a lot of issues with my video card, i can't install it correctly i get low graphics mode and some times a black screen..login+password i had read a lot of post, installed ubuntu a few times, done a lot of stuff but i can't get it, im a noob, using ubuntu for a week now and i love it.
When I watch a HD movie, the video will freeze momentarily sometimes. Would a 8400GS or 9600GT take care of this? My video card is a 7300 le, CPU= Phenom 8450 Memory= 4gb PC2-6400 Power= OCZ Fatal1ty OCZ550FTY 550W
I recently installed a new evga nVidia GT 430 video card in my Ubuntu 10.10 32-bit system. This had the unforseen side effect of eliminating my sound.
I had no idea that the new video card would include a new sound module. My intent is for my system to use my Soundblaster Audigy2 soundcard in 5.1 output mode. The system still seems to be configured to do that, but the nVidia HDMI Stereo output module seems to have taken over in Sound Preferences.
I have a Phillips SAA7130 TV Tunner card and seems to have installed correctly. I have Xaw TV program on Ubuntu 10.10. I am unable to get the Video. I tried 3 players and in none I am able to see the video. The source in all programs says 'Default' and am unable to choose the card as source. I am also ok to allow remote login to check.
I've got a little video and I want to crop it so that a part of it falls away. I installed and tried Openshot, Kino, Pitivi and Kdenlive, but I can't seem to find a way to crop my video. Isn't there any way to crop videos in Ubuntu, or am I just blind and overlooking the function?
I have a 64 bit computer with a 64 bit distribution of Ubuntu. The driver for the onboard video card wasn't supported beyond 8.04, so I didn't upgrade. Yesterday, I bought a NVIDIA GeForce 210 video card. I installed it and Ubuntu detected it and worked, but the resolution was limited to 640x480 (I think). I figured this would be corrected by updating, so I updated to 9.04. When I had to restart, the option to select which OS (Linux or Win) came up, I selected 9.04, and the ubuntu symbol came on. The status bar went to the end and the screen turned black, flickered 5 times, turned black and stopped progressing. The xorg.conf file is:
Seemingly at random when I reboot my PC which I do every now and then, when I get it back up and running it will sometimes have switched my video card from using /dev/video1 to /dev/video0 or vice versa. It's not a huge deal but it is slightly annoying and I would like to understand why it does it and how I can stop it from flip flopping.
Not sure what you need to know in order to answer but I use 9.10, gnome 2.28.1, the video card is a Hauppauge 150 PVR something.
I'm looking at upgrading my motherboard and graphics card. Ideally, I'd like to have 2 monitors running at once (DVI), and an output to an LCD projector (HDMI). If I can't have all 3 working at once, I'd like the 2 monitors on all the time (off the graphics card), and then switch from the monitors to the HDMI output so that only the projector is getting video.
So, If I get a motherboard with onboard HDMI, would it be possible to run the HDMI out at the same time as the graphics card output?
I have a GeForce 8600M GS card in a Dell Vostro 1710, which has appeared to be playing up lately, but I'm unsure whether it's the hardware itself or have I not properly set things up.
I have Ubuntu 10.04 installed with compiz, and 'rotate cube' enabled. The 'deformation' is set to cylinder. I recently tried using rss-glx (really slick screensaver) when the slow-down and screen freezes happened.
Odd behaviour begins after attempting to log in after the screensaver has blanked the screen, i.e. screensaver ran for a while then the screen blanked. When logged back in, a 'cylinder' rotate freezes and the screen does not refresh. Clicking around the screen refreshes it somewhat. Switching between screens becomes next to impossible and a restart is required.
In general rotating the cube is OK, rotating the cylinder seems a task on the video card and rotating the sphere is horribly slow.
Things done so far:
Each time I log in, I need to open the NVidia settings and change the powermizer to 'prefer maximum performance'. On next reboot I will try this in xorg.conf code...
My questions are: - How can I verify the card is working correctly, enough to be able to decide whether it's hardware or software at fault? - If the hardware is proven to be OK, what am I then leaving out?
I have a HP Pavilion dv7 laptop. Can you please tell me how can I find the right driver for my sound card? When I play a mp3 via vlc in ubuntu 9.10, there is sound, but the quality is bad. And I play the same on Windows7. It plays fine.
