Ubuntu :: Firefox Page Zoom Gives Poor Image Quality?

Aug 2, 2010

One of my favorite features of fire fox is the page zoom ( ctrl + / ctrl - ) that zooms the entire page retaining the layout how ever when I installed 10.04 on my main desktop firefox started scaling the images very poorly ( ie no smoothing, leaving the image looking extremely pixelated ).All threads I've found on the subject seems to related to ubuntu 8, and suggest that a bug fix was underway... hopefully this means there is an easy fix - but what?info;Same computer it worked fine on ubuntu 9.xx and windows 7 - when doing desktop zoom (meta + mouse scroll ) the images also scales as expected.

Fedora :: Poor Quality LATEX Fonts?

May 18, 2010

I am currently working on a large document using LATEX and have bumped into a problem. Here is the thing: I write this document in several machines, there is a Mac at school, some Ubuntu based machine, and this Fedora 12 x64 laptop. The thing is that I compile the document periodically on these machines and I WOULD expect the results to be similar, but they are not because the resulting PDF is of inferior quality! (fonts do not look very well when they are zoomed in).

Mac OSX's latex-produced-PDFs are of higher quality than their Linux counterparts. Is there something I can do to fix that? Install an extra package perhaps?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype To Landline Phone - Poor Quality?

May 19, 2010

Ubuntu 10.4, Sound card works great when recording and doing playback with Ubuntu. Skype v. 2.1 beta. In Windows XP, same system, I dual boot. When I use Skype (latest), and I try to call to a landline in the US, everything works fine. Everyone can hear me fine and there's no problems. The problem: When I use Ubuntu, and Skype, there's crackling, dropped off sound, and the overall quality is bad.

EDIT: The biggest issue here is dropping parts of the call. Why does it do that?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 5.1 Surround Sound Plays Very Poor Quality

Nov 8, 2010

I got a 5.1 desktop sound sys for my recently built gaming rig. It sounds great. On Windows, that is. In ubuntu when I'm playing music, primarily when the subwoofer plays the bass, the speakers sound like they're farting and ripping phone books in half. Also, they get very statticy and sort of quiet. In sound preferences, analog stereo duplex is selected, if that's of any value. How can I get good sound playback in ubuntu?

Fedora :: Poor Picture Quality In Firefox And Other Browsers?

Jun 18, 2010

After taking a first look onto internet under Fedora linux (using Firefox web browser) I've saw that every single image is displayer much much worse than in same Firefox under Windows. Especially when scaling, it became pixelized, but even without scaling it is smoothen very much. I've checked Konqueror but quality is bad too and the same as in Firefox. What could be the reason and how could I fix it?

BTW, everything in linux GUI looks a little worse, including font, etc, looks smooth. Images under IrfanView too, but not as bad as in browsers. Proprietary Nvidia driver from RPMfusion is installed and 3D works. But running Fedora under VirtualBox in Windows produce same bad quality as in native Fedora.

Slackware :: Poor Quality Fonts In OpenOffice Menus

Mar 23, 2011

I'm running -current (13.37) 32 bit and have installed OpenOffice 3.2.1. The problem is the menu fonts in OpenOffice which look very thin and are not smooth. All other application fonts look very good. When I had this same version of OpenOffice installed on Slackware 12.2 I did not see this problem.In OpenOffice I have ticked the option to use system font for user interface but this doesn't seem to have any effect. I've also ticked the screen font anti aliasing option because the fonts look worse when this is not ticked. My KDE system font is DejaVu Sans, the same as it was on Slackware 12.2.

My OpenOffice package was built using a script written by Robby Workman which I think I got from his web site a long time ago. It takes the rpms and creates a Slackware package.

OpenSUSE :: Poor Graphics Quality Of Applets With Firefox / Icedtea Under Suse 11.3

Dec 31, 2010

I have recently switched from suse 9.2 32-bit to 11.3 64-bit (luckily I'm still mantaining the old machien for a while).I'm noticing that the graphics quality of the applets displayed by the new firefox (3.6.12 bundled with the opensuse distro) is significantly worse (mainly concerning fonts which look very poor) then the one I used to have on the old system.I see that the new firefox uses IcedTea 1.9.2. The old system was using, I guess, something called libjavaplugin_oji.Is this a known problem with IcedTea and is there a recommended replacenent ?

SUSE :: Drivers Missing - Wireless Not Working - Poor Display Quality?

Nov 29, 2010

I installed openSuSE 11.2 sometime ago in a COMPAQ Presario CQ60-419WM laptop (the ones that Wal-mart sold for $300 about a year-and-a-half ago. I installed the 64-bit version because I saw that the processor could support that (perhaps that was not a good idea). I have some problems that seem related to not having the necessary drivers. My wireless has never worked and my display is far from what I would like it to be (the response is slow, if a drag a window, its motion is jerky, if I scroll down in a browser window, the motion is wavy). The look and feel is very different from what I get at work and I do not know how to fix it.

General :: Poor Quality Sound - Vibrates And Distorts At High Volume

May 11, 2010

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 510m with onboard Intel 855 sound (STAC 9750 AC97). The sound was perfect with WinXP, but with Ubuntu it's tinny and lacks richness and vibrates and distorts at higher volumes. I've played around with Alsamixer and changed the driver from ALSA to OSS4 and it has improved slightly, but still not perfect. Is it just not gonna get any better, should I not be expecting it to be as good as WinXP?

I've seen on the Intel site a Linux driver for my controller, it's a tarball but it won't compile after extracting it (read on this forum that someone had the exact same problem with that driver). Will the Intel driver not help, does the problem go deeper than just the driver? It would be perfect it you could just wrap the Dell/Intel driver and use that (just like with wireless ndiswrapper).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Play Anything - Music - Flash - Videos - Games - 'muffled' - Poor Sound Quality

Apr 7, 2010

I just got my hands on an MSI E7235-295US and slapped Ubuntu 9.10 on it. So far everything's worked great, but I am beginning to get a bit concerned about my sound quality. The laptop itself has 5 speakers + subwoofer so I should be getting 5.1 sound, if I understand things correctly (the newegg link should provide more details) and when I play anything (music, flash, videos, games, etc...) the sound comes out 'muffled'. Almost as if it is in a concert hall, maybe. I initially wondered if the problem is related to the 5 speakers and if the sound is initially only setup for two. If that is the case, nothing I've done has seemed to made any real difference. I've tried changing the master/pci channels, but it only hides it a little, and doesn't solve the problem.

This seemed to be on the right track, but the laptop is still really new and not listed in the alsa file.

Some info:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)
Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. Device 7220
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 22

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get NVIDIA 195.36.24 Driver Installed

May 19, 2010

I have a Zotac IONITX-F-E motherboard (Intel Atom Dual Core 1.6 GHz + Nvidia ION) -based box with Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit installed. My goal is to play back 1080p video. I read somewhere that the nouveau driver that installs by default with ubuntu 10.04 does not support VDPAU. So, my first step is to install the nVidia proprietary driver. I tried following a half-dozen different guides for doing this, none of which worked. Let's take this one for example: [URL] I purge. I reboot. I run the Nvidia installer (NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.24-pkg2.run). I get:

Code: ERROR: Unable to create '/usr/lib/nvidia-current/libGL.so.195.36.15' for copying (no such file or directory). So, I run: Code: sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-185 nvidia-185-modaliases I try the nvidia installer again. It works. I reboot. I get a message saying that ubuntu is running in low graphics mode, because loading the nvidia kernel module failed. I check /var/log/messages and see: Code: API mismatch: the client has version 195.36.24 but the kernel module has version 195.36.15. I take a Tylenol and here I am.

Ubuntu :: Black Screen After Nvidia Driver 185 Installed?

Jan 25, 2010

After installing Ubuntu and seeing my resolution would only go to 800 x 600, I found this strange. A message popped up about the nVidia drivers I could downlaod that would enable me to do more so I did. I restarted and all was fine. Nice effects, high resolution. However, after going on XP, then going onto Ubuntu, the screen ahs gone black. The white Ubuntu logo can be seen for a while as it loads, but then the monitor goes completely blank as I hear the sound when the log-in screen appears.As I said in my title, it was the 185 driver

Fedora :: Installed Wrong Nvidia Driver

Feb 23, 2011

I mucked my system up while trying to install proprietary nvidia drivers -- I was careless and installed the wrong ones (should have used legacy drivers). Now my system hangs on "starting udev" during boot.I have tried many combinations of boot options in an effort to blacklist the problematic driver. Attached is a picture of my boot screen after specifying the options "single init 3 modprobedebug", and removing the options "rgbh quiet". For some reason I am having a lot of trouble blacklisting the correct module, or maybe I caused a kernel problem, which in that case is beyond me.Also, boot option syntax question: can I specify something like "rdblacklist=*nvidia*" using wildcards?

Slackware :: Just Installed The Nvidia Driver And Now It Won't Remember My Settings

Mar 15, 2010

I finally got around to installing the Nvidia driver (gotten from Slackbuilds.org).

Overall, I'm pretty happy with it, but it wants to default to 1280x1024 resolution and we prefer 1024x768 on our old 17" CRT monitor.

No matter what I do, though, it starts up in 1280x1024. We start X from runlevel 3 and go into KDE 4.3.1.

It is not difficult to change to 1024x768 using the Nvidia configuration utility, but then the menu fonts are HUGE -- especially in Thunderbird and Firefox.

My xorg.conf is below.

Ubuntu :: Installed An Nvidia Driver For 9.10. Now Terminal Appears When Computer Boots Up

May 15, 2010

I'm not sure what Nvidia driver I installed the other day, but it's messed things up. After Ubuntu boots up and asks for login, I am greeted with terminal. Setting 1152Xwhatever resolution failed. Setting to 1024X768. My xorg.conf.old file is completely empty, so I have no idea what the original settings were. I have tried removing and reinstalling xserver.xorg but that hasn't seemed to get me anywhere. I have also used the "apt-cache search nvidia" command to see what drivers could be installed, but every single driver that I attempt to remove isn't installed.
