Ubuntu Multimedia :: Prevent Display Detection At Boot?

Mar 19, 2010

I regularly use 2 monitors at 2 different locations. Booting Ubuntu on monitor 1 works great. Booting with monitor 2 connected causes Ubuntuto load with really low resolution.If Ubuntu is running and I unplug monitor 1 and connect monitor 2 all is well and it works perfectly.How can I tell Ubuntu not to check/change the display settings during boot so that it will work correctly with monitor 2?

Ubuntu :: Prevent Display Of Mounted Home Folder On Desktop ?

Feb 9, 2010

I recently changed linux distros and switched to Karmic. In my earlier setup /home was on a separate partition.

After switching to karmic I added the following line to /etc/fstab to mount my /home partition which was on /dev/sda6 (ubuntu is on /dev/sda7) /dev/sda6 /home ext3 nodev,nosuid 0 2

After rebooting I saw that while earlier I had an empty desktop now my desktop shows the content of my home folder.

On googling I found out about how I could change the nautilus preferences.

I used gconf-editor to change: apps>nautlius>preferences>desktop_is_home_dir to false

I also changed: apps>nautlius>desktop>volumes_visible to false.

However on rebooting I still see all the contents of my home folder on the desktop.

What do I need to do to show the Desktop as blank (as in point to ~/Desktop rather than point to ~)?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No DVI Detection In Karmic 9.10?

Apr 20, 2010

I have essentially been raised on Windows so I have no idea how to get DVI to work in Ubuntu. I have a Ubuntu/Vista desktop with an ATI Radeon X1350 graphics card. I can get picture from DVI when I boot into my Vista partition (the computer originally came with Vista and I have a Zune which will not work with Ubuntu ). But the moment I try to use DVI on Ubuntu: I have no picture. The ATI Radeon X1350 Pro is using the open source radeon driver. I know this from the System Testing diagnostic I ran when I finished setting up Ubuntu, the log file mentioned a line: Kernel module: radeon, underneath the section about my graphics card. That is about the limit of my Linux skills for right now, so any thoughts? If you need more information about my system I can comb through that log file which is still saved in my Fire Fox history.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Jack Detection Not Working - Toshiba T135D

Mar 15, 2010

I bought a Toshiba T135D-S1324 two days ago, and the only thing I can't get to work is for the internal speakers to automatically mute when headphones are plugged in. (Ubuntu 9.10 for AMD64 by the way.)

I have tried to add "options snd-hda-intel model=laptop probe_mask=1" to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf but that didn't work.

The jack detection box is not available under sound preferences. Alsamixer only shows PCM and Master.

"sudo cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec" shows "Codec: Conexant ID 5066"

Debian Multimedia :: Upgrade System From Jessie To Stretch - Second Screen Detection

Dec 31, 2015

I recently upgrade my system from Jessie to Stretch, with no problem. A little later I upgrades Enlightenment from e17 to e20, and at some point shortly after that the second screen stopped working.

The nvidia X Server Settings correctly identifies both screens. But Enlightenment and xrandr does not see the second one at all. The second screen are on and the pointer moves correctly onto it, but no activity with left or right click. I have tried with the original xorg.conf, and generated a new one with nvidia-xconfig, but no difference. No obvious errors in any log-files either.

Ubuntu :: Prevent HDD Repair On Boot?

Aug 25, 2010

I installed Ubuntu to use ddrescue to clone my dying drive and keep the log.Now the question is:Does Ubuntu really try to repair a corrupt NTFS disk during boot?If so, how can I change this behaviour, including any disks attached to the system in future?I had a similar question for the live cd, I think it should be easier now, as we can configure the system.Btw am I the only one to think an 'auto repair' by default is no good without asking for permission? It's something I dislike on Windows. A corrupt structure is likely a hardware problem, and in this case a repair can terribly damage the file system.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Prevent - Using AC97 Audio

Mar 12, 2011

I have an M-Audio Audiophile 2496 card installed in my PC. It is of far higher quality than the AC97 sound built into the VIA chipset. I want to use the M-Audio card so AC97 sound is disabled in BIOS.

When using Audacity I can record and play with the M-Audio card as I wish.

When using VLC (or any other media player), Ubuntu insists on playing through the AC97 ports - which I have disabled and which, I would have thought, was a pretty good indication that I don't want to use them.

Even when I configure VLC to use the M-Audio card (using VLC's <tools> <preferences> <audio> <output Device> ) it still plays through the motherboard via-82xx hardware.

What nonsense is this? Surely Ubuntu cannot require me to replug my speakers when I want to switch between VLC/ Brasero etc and Audacity?

I looked at the Pulse Audio apps: good grief! Is there any human being which understand what all that is supposed to be about? I could find nothing which matched my understanding of my hardware or related in any way to what I, as an end-user, want to do with my system. Is there an interpretation of this PulseAudio function available anywhere?

Ubuntu Networking :: Prevent Apache2 Server From Starting At Boot?

Nov 18, 2010

One of my ubuntu 10.04 boxes starts apache2 server automatically at boot. I know from the output of the command:


sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 status

I can't remember even setting that up, and I don't think it does so by default, since my other box in fact does not even have apache2 server installed. I can stop the server once I login, but is there a way to stop it from automatically starting the server, or even better, completely uninstall the daemon. I tried


sudo apt-get remove apache2

but that does not work. I guess the daemon is part of some bigger package.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Prevent Applications From Resetting PulseAudio Settings?

Aug 26, 2010

Ubuntu Lucid, Asus T101MT tablet netbook.

Background Info: Normally the microphone doesn't work with some applications such as Empathy or the new Google Talk plugin for Linux. The workaround I'm using (and I don't know why this works) is to unlock the left and right channels in Pavucontrol and set one channel to zero, and to boost volume I set the other to max.

Issue: The Google Talk plugin is resetting the channels to be locked together. This is pretty frustrating because now they have free calling and I have no cell reception in my dorm room.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Prevent Flash Capture Keyboard?

May 30, 2011

Is there any way to prevent Flash from capturing all keyboard input? I'm really sick of not being able to ctrl+l or ctrl+tab just because I'm watching a video, and today a video froze in fullscreen mode and I couldn't even ctrl+f1 to any terminals or ctrl+backspace to kill KDE. It would be awesome to stop flash from grabbing certain key commands and pass them to the browser or OS instead.

Ubuntu :: No Display During Boot?

May 4, 2011

I'm quite familiar with CentOS and have used ubuntu in the past, recently I decided to do a clean Ubuntu install and I've been running happily for about a week. That is until I decided to upgrade from 10.10 to 11.4.

The first thing I've noticed since upgrading is that I can't see any part of the boot process as the screen just displays "Out of Range" until I'm shown the login screen, no boot selection and no display of drivers being loaded - which can cause problems when you need to troubleshoot. No worries I thought....

However, I noticed that since the upgrade moving windows around on the desktop was slow which is probably because I'm not using the right driver, so I decided to let it install the recommended driver.

Now I never see the login screen. It just keeps saying "out of range" for eternity. I've even tried booting into runlevel 1 - still the same thing. Do the drivers actually apply here?

I've also renamed my xorg.conf in an attempt to fix things - no luck.

Is there a way to get back from this without a reinstall?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Intermittent Sound Card Detection?

Jun 8, 2010

I am having a very strange problem with my sound card. I have found that occasionally when I boot up my system the sound card is not detected. I could understand that there may be driver issues if it was never detected but it usually works again after a reboot. I read that it might help to switch to ALSA so I switched the audio input and output to ALSA and thought it had fixed the problem but I just noticed that the sound card was not connected on my most recent boot up.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Display On Boot With Maverick 10.10

Oct 11, 2010

I just upgraded my laptop to 10.10 and now when I boot the display doesn't show anything. This laptop worked flawlessly on 10.04. I can tell the underlying system is fine, because if I type my boot password the hard disk activity picks up like it is continuing to boot, and CTRL+ALT+DEL reboots the computer as one would expect. When I boot using an old kernel (a leftover from 10.04 I think) via GRUB the system boots normally. What can I do about this? My laptop is an HP Elitebook 2730p. According to the specs it uses an Intel GMA 4500MHD for graphics. I am using the 64-bit version of Ubuntu.

Ubuntu :: Most Times After Boot Up The Display Is Black?

Nov 8, 2010

This little guide is for anyone with an HP Touchsmart Tm2 series running Ubuntu 10.04 and above. PLEASE NOTE: These workarounds, solutions, and tips have been tested and verified to work on an HP Touchsmart Tm2-2050us running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx and Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat. Installation: There are no problems I have experienced with installation except for the display not working on the live USB/CD images occasionally, this can be fixed by simply closing the display lid, and reopening it (this usually has to be done at least 2 or 3 times). Display: Most times after boot up, the display is black. A workaround for this is closing the lid and reopening it (repeat until the display works). Another reported solution is as follows:

1) Open a terminal
2) Type:

sudo nano /etc/rc.local 3) Add this to the bottom of the file (this disables the ATI part of the hybrid graphics card):
echo OFF > /sys/kernel/debug/vgaswitcheroo/switch
4) Press CTRL-X (to exit), Y (to save changes), and ENTER/RETURN to accept the file name.
5) Reboot
Note: This solution is also reported to increase battery life.

Trackpad: It may seem that the right click button is disabled, but it isn't. To right click, you must tap the very bottom right corner of the trackpad. Also, by default the trackpad does not have multi-touch enabled (even though it is capable of it). A reported solution for this is:

1) Open a terminal
2) Type:

sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-two-finger-scroll-touchsmart-tm2.conf
3) Add this to the bottom of the file:
Section "InputClass"
Identifier "enable synaptics SHMConfig"
MatchIsTouchpad "on"
