Ubuntu Multimedia :: 9.10 - Unable To Play DVD Movies?

Mar 13, 2010

I'm able to open DVD data discs, it's just playing DVD movies which is the problem now.

I've followed the official ubuntu guide on this and it hasn't worked. Even with all the numerous posts regarding the matter I'm still unable to find a fix.

Thus I'm posting here. If I can't get this to work I'm fooking back off to Windows because I've wasted far too many hours as it is.

I'm running P4 2.4 Ghz, NEC 2500a DVD-RW drive. I've also got two other DVD drives, a Pioneer slot drive which I get the exact same problem and another one which I haven't tested yet as it appears to be a software problem.

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier

Ubuntu :: Intel I915 Graphics - Mouse Pointer Disappears?

Sep 3, 2010

I have had continued issues with my graphics: [URL]... Now, after an update manager update, I have a new issue. My mouse cursor disappears when I use my external monitor beyond a given resolution. Also, my settings for the laptop monitor are incorrect (will not let me select the true laptop native resolution). I even had an instance when I had mirrored images, but saw the mouse pointer only on the laptop screen, but not on the external monitor. I also recently did the suggestion to

gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="i915.modeset=0 quiet splash"

Which had caused issues when I was previously running Ubuntu in dual boot with WIN XP. I am now on standalone Ubuntu 10.04. I reversed the grub edit, but the problem persists. Currently, I have to keep my external monitor at a much lower resolution for mouse pointer to show up, or use the CTRL key to show mouse pointer location feature in higher resolutions. All other aspects of the higher resolution for the external monitor work well...just that my mouse cursor does not show up.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Change Mouse Pointer After KDE Install?

May 15, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 9.10 for about three months now (I am a total greenhorn) . A few hours ago, I decided to add the KDE 4.4 desktop environment. I followed the procedure on this link. It was all in GUI, no terminal commands required. [URL]

Installed KDE and everything is fine except two problems.

1. The KDE mouse pointer has become default in GNOME and I just can't change it. Tried everything, changing theme, customising theme and even downloaded the "mouse pointer" app from Software Centre. Nothing works.

2. I am not able to upgrade anything using Kpackagekit. It keeps telling me I don't have authorisation, without asking for my password.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Play Downloaded Videos/movies (non-copyright)

Feb 22, 2010

I have been away from Linux in general and Ubuntu since 2006, but now wish to make Linux, and probably the Ubuntu distribution, my main operating system, especially for the Internet. I have been using Open Office since version 1.0, so no training or migration is necessary there. However, I have one challenge with my Ubuntu 9.1 ... movies which play under Windows will not play in Ubuntu. Under Windows Firefox needs Adobe Flash Player 10 to play these videos ... is there some open source software that will give Ubuntu Firefox the same capability?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Movie Players Crash To Play Movies?

May 10, 2010

I can't play movies when I have browsers open. I am not sure if it is the browser, or what. I ran totem, and vlc in a terminal, and it says insufficient resources when I try to open a movie (see snapshot).

I also took a snapshot of my system monitor. I am not sure what resources it is talking about?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Play Movies In Dual Monitor Setup

Jul 22, 2010

I recently got a signal conversion box so I could route my netbooks monitor-out port to my TV. The idea being that I could effectively set the TV up as a separate monitor for watching movies on whilst I worked using the netbooks own monitor. It seemed to work initially, the Monitors dialog box could easily detect and setup the TV as if it were just an external monitor however I can't seem to play any kind of video on either screen when this is set up. All I get in Totem, Mplayer, VLC and skype is just a black area within the applications window. The sound works fine so this is clearly just a video problem.

It only seems to occur when I configure the system to use the TV as a separate monitor. If I tell it to display the same thing on both monitors all video output works fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Gecko-mediaplayer To Play Divx Movies On The Web?

Dec 22, 2010

I was wondering if there's another way than gecko-mediaplayer to play divx movies on the web. In chromium gecko sometimes freezes,usually when only 10 minutes are left from the movie and that's just freaking annoying, and you can't fast forward or backward also. Though it has some good things too I would like to know if there's an alternative for it in chromium, something like using vlc as in firefox.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 - VLC DVD Playback Not Respond To Mouse Pointer

Dec 9, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04 installed recently. Problem when watching a DVD with VLC. It plays OK, but won't respond to the mouse pointer. I can raise the volume by putting the pointer over the screen and using the scroll, but that is the only thing that responds. I have to get out of the program by doing a force quit. It worked fine in 9.10. I don't know if this is a VLC or Ubuntu problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Menus Failed To Activate When Selected With Mouse Pointer?

Feb 17, 2010

Originally I had some strange issues with my desktop.

- Menus failed to activate when selected with Mouse Pointer

- X or - in the upper right corner of any window or program was not selective.
Things just weren't working right.

To fix this I removed the NVIDIA material from Synaptic.

Completely removed the following packages:



Right now, if you were to open Synaptic and select "Not Installed" and search NVIDIA nothing is installed!

Once removed! and I'm using the safe mode generic drivers I have no desktop issues. My mouse, menus and desktop work just fine.

Now I can install the NVIDI 185ver but my issues with the desktop and menus comes back. However there seems to be some driver updates 190v and 195v, but I can't get them to install.

Right now I don't care what Driver I use just as long as there are no desktop issues.

Oh my Video card is a Geforce GT8900 256mb

Ubuntu :: Mouse Pointer Points With The Bottom Of The Mouse And Not The Upper Tip Of The Point

Oct 5, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my HP Pavilion a320n computer with a ps2 mouse and the mouse pointer points with the bottom of the mouse and not the upper tip of the point. It does the same thing with Ubuntu 10.04.1. In Windows 7 and XP the mouse is normal. I don't know how I could adjust it or is this just a bug in the OS?

Fedora :: How To Make Mouse Pointer Less Sensitive To Mouse Movements

Jul 9, 2010

I'm running FC12 and GNOME.If I move the physical mouse about one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.That's way too fast and way to sensitive.I prefer the mouse pointer to move far less distance on the screen when the physical mouse is moved.

From System->Preferences->Mouse, I set the various mouse Pointer Speed acceleration and Sensitivity to Slow, Fast, Low, High, and and I couldn't get it any better. At the least sensitive settings. if I move the physical mouse one inch, the mouse pointer moves across the entire screen.How can make the mouse pointer less sensitive to mouse movements?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Show Mouse Clicks In A Desktop Recording?

Dec 18, 2010

I can record my desktop for instructional aids but saying "And now click here" is not too cool and the user could miss the what-where. How do I have each mouse click play an audio sound or have a right click cause circular waves and a left click square waves around the mouse? Something graphic and/or audio. (My android tablet has the option of a click sound when a touch is recognized.)

I hope for something more obvious for the viewer. I don't use Compiz but would be willing to try it if that is the answer. Turning on Visual Effects (x) Extra does not do it. I didn't see anything in Assistive Technologies.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Get Totem To Play Everything And Show Thumbnails?

Jul 17, 2010

restricted formats and i can play my videos with SMplayer, Xine, VLC etc but not Totem. Totem in 11.3 uses Gstreamer, and i believe i have all gstreamer plugins installed, good, bad, ugly, base etc. Also thumbnails won't show. Reason i want to use Totem? cuz it's integrated well with Gnome

THere's also this issue where everything i try to play wants to be played with banshee, how do i stop that? i tried going into Preferred applications and put it on custom, but i can't differentiate music and video, there's just a multimedia option.
I would like to have music autplayed with Banshee, and Video autoplayed with SMplayer without having to go through the right click, play with option :/

Full screen flash is aproblem in 11.3 64 bit just as it ALWAYS is in most distros i tried *sigh* there's stuttering, and i can't scroll through the video ideally.

For the sake of saving spack i have a non multimedia related question. How do i handle nzbs? in windows i use sabnzb which is cross platform, but their is only a Fedora RPM meaning i'll have to compile it for opensuse which i have NO Idea how to do. Alternative NZB handlers i can't find in the regular repositories or webpin.

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 :: Play Movies From 11.04 On XBox?

May 29, 2011

I want to cancel our cable tv. We don't really use it except for the kids and they don't care what's on as long as it's animated.

That being said, we have a ton of kid movies we want to try to burn to the computer and share those to the XBox. I know that Windows has a way of sharing files using Windows Media Player and sharing to the XBox, but I wasn't sure if there was another way.

General :: Some DVD Movies Won't Play?

May 28, 2011

I can play many of my DVD movies in linux but there are some DVDs that won't play and the Available Devices notifier doesn't show up when I load these DVDs.

The DVDs that won't play in linux works fine in windows and my tabletop dvd player.

I do have libdvdcss2, libdvdread4 and other modules to play both encrypted and non-encrypted DVDs.

Like I said, I can play many of my dvd movies in linux with only a few that don't. Has anyone experience this situation in linux with some of your own DVD movies?
