Ubuntu :: Window Behavior Changes When Adding Third Monitor

Feb 26, 2011

When I run my dual monitors with twinview on an NVidia GeForce 8400GS when I maximize a window it does it as you would expect (on one monitor) and when a pop up comes out of an application or when I bring up Synapse it appears in the center of my monitor. However, when I add a third monitor as a separate X window, the behavior of the windows on my dual screens becomes very different. It maximizes across both monitors, and Synapse opens with the center between the two monitors.Any thoughts on how to fix this or why it would change?

Fedora :: Where Did 'Window Behavior' Go

Nov 27, 2009

There used to be an option within the Preferences section in Gnome for 'Window Behaviour' where you could change the behaviour of windows such as roll up on double click instead of maximize and that sort of stuff.I can't seem to find it on F12 and can't find anything else that allows me to adjust those types of behaviours.

Slackware :: KDE 4.5 Bug In Configure Window Behavior

Oct 12, 2010

Has anyone noticed this bug in KDE 4.5? It started for me with the official 4.5.1 packages in -current, and is now continuing with Alien Bob's 4.5.2 packages. I don't think it happened with previous 4.5.0 builds I was using.

1) Right-click title bar, select "Configure Window Behavior"
2) the "Desktop Effects" option is selected by default, but displays the "Window Decorations" screen instead.
3) Clicking on another option on the left will show appropriate screen.
4) Finally clicking on "Desktop Effects" will show the proper screen to configure effects.

[URL]. [In the screenshot above, you can see "Desktop Effects" pre-selected, but displaying the wrong screen.]. Bug still shows up with a brand new user account with fresh .kde. My searching for other bug reports has turned up nothing, so I'm wondering if this is unique to slackware for whatever reason. I'm running slackware64-current, up to date, with NVIDIA binary drivers.

Fedora :: Unable To Customize Window Behavior

Jun 29, 2010

I just installed Fedora 13. I am looking for the place to change my window behavior settings. I want windows to gain focus and move to foreground when I move the mouse over it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Twinview Window Maximize Behavior?

Aug 22, 2010

I have 2 nvidia graphics cards and 3 monitors. One graphicss card is an nvidia 460 and the second one is an nvidia 8400 GS. I'm on Ubuntu lucid 64 bit gnome desktop. I use the nvidia drivers . 2 monitors are connected to the 460 card setup as twinview the last monitor is connected to the 8400 GS set as a separate xscreen.

When I now maximize a window on the 2 monitors which are set as twin view it expands this window gets stretched over both screens. I would like to know how I can set it so that an maximized window get only expands on the current screen in twinview so that I can still move windows from 1 screen to another.

General :: Modify The "Configure Window Behavior" Settings

Sep 12, 2010

I am trying to modify the "Configure Window Behavior" settings so that a new KWrite window will have a default size and location that is not affected by anything I did to a previous KWrite window. I have found that "Force" does that; unfortunately, "Force" also locks the window in position, preventing me from moving or resizing it if I should want to. Is there any setting that forces a default window size and location but allows me to change it?

Ubuntu :: Won't Login After Adding Second Monitor

Aug 15, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu Lucid Lynx on my new laptop. After plugging an old VGA monitor into the VGA port to add a second screen, I rebooted as the screen options manager asked me to do. I got to the login screen and typed in my password... Ubuntu tried to restart, then kicked me back to the login screen! This is the correct password. I tried all sorts of things by using "recovery mode" (which is pretty useless) like starting in safe graphics mode (I unplugged the offending monitor also, of course) and tried using backed up xorg.conf file, but nothing works! Do I have to completely reinstall? What changes are made by adding a second monitor?

Some information on my configuration: The laptop is a custom Cyberpower Xplorer X6-8500 notebook. The main display is a Compal NBLB2 Notebook 15.6" Full HD 1920x1080 Display The second monitor is 1280x1024 The video card is an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 GDDR3 1GB PCIe 3D Video

Debian Multimedia :: Adding A Second Monitor?

Jul 17, 2011

I'm a newcomer to Linux and so I apologize in advance for my question (that may be a newbie's question indeed).I've just changed my system from Lenny and installed the newest version of Squeeze ( X.Org X Server 1.7.7, Build Operating System: Linux 2.6.37-trunk-amd64 x86_64 Debian).When adding a second monitor (smaller with different specs) I get the same resolution on both screens--that of the smaller one.

Ubuntu :: No Keyboard Input And Window Borders On Second Monitor

Jun 11, 2011

I run Natty 64x (new install) and have setup to use two seperate x servers and no xinerama. When I start my computer everything seems fine on both monitors but once desktop is loaded and I start an app in the second monitor, I can't type anything and the window borders are missing. If I type "DISPLAY:=0.1 metacity" the problem gets fixed but I get an error that a window manager is running already.

I have AMD/Nvidia, GeForce 8800GT.

Ubuntu :: Avant Window Navigator Over Triple Monitor System

Mar 31, 2011

I have been using AWN for years, having a startup script to run multiple instances of AWN and position it on each monitor correctly. This has worked fine but today I decided to upgrade the version of AWN. The only problem now being that the new version doesn't support multiple instances of AWN to be open at once.The new version of AWN does have an 'Add dock' button but that's no good as my setup isn't Xinerama so each monitor is it's own workspace, meaning I can't position the dock far left, because far left is the edge of the current monitor.

The ideal solution here would to be able to run multiple instances, as I can force each instance to a monitor with DISPLAY=0:1 etc.If anybody has any ideas on how to have AWN on each of the 3 monitors then please let me know.

OpenSUSE :: Change The Monitor A New Window Pops Up?

Aug 21, 2010

I have two external monitors connected to my laptop, one with DVI port and one with displayport port.

Now when I run something a new window always pops up in the monitor on the left. I guess it is set so a net window always pops up at 0, 0 pixel or something. I want it to pop up in the monitor on the right.

OpenSUSE :: Maximized Window Gets Under The Panel In External Monitor?

Jul 26, 2010

I'm using openSUSE 11.3. I have a external monitor, and my setup is that when it is connected the panel is expended on the left. (Extended desktop)When I maximize any window in my external monitor, the window gets under the panel, instead of getting maximized properly. Is this a bug?I just tried to move the panel to my laptop's desktop, and the size of a maximized window in that screen gets adjusted properly. So I guess it is a bug related to the extended desktop

Fedora :: Dual Monitor - Window Maximizes To Full Screen?

Feb 11, 2010

I just rebuilt my fedora box and I'm having some problems getting dual monitors to work. First, I can't reposition my secondary monitor to be on the left. It thinks it's on the right. I can use xrandr to fix this, but that is annoying. Is there no way to do this in the display properties? Second, maximizing a window makes it go across all screens. I unchecked this option in the display properties.I also unchecked the one for letting windows be in multiple monitors at once, but this still happens.

Fedora :: Determine Which Process Belongs To Which Window In System Monitor?

Feb 26, 2011

I have Fedora Linux 13 64bit system. I use System Monitor to check which process is taking how much memory and cpu. Normally I have dozens of Chrome and Firefox windows open. The Processes tab shows which process is taking how much cpu/ram resources but I unfortunately there is no option like right click and make the window active that matches the PID (the one process that I have currently highlighted). Usually there is a chrome process taking up 30 or 40 percent of CPU while dozens other chrome processes taking much less cpu. I must determine which chrome window ( or any application which has multiple instances running) is taking that much CPU time. So can some one help me to solve this problem?

General :: X-Window Modeline For High Resolution Modes On NEC LCD 22WV Monitor?

Apr 30, 2010

What should look like X Window System (X.Org) modeline to be put in xorg.conf, for high resolution (incuding recommended 1680x1050 @ 50Hz resolution) for 22" NEC LCD 22WV monitor? X.Org autodetect correctly only 800x600 and lower resolution SVGA modes,unfortunately.1,2

How can I generate proper "Modeline" line for xorg.conf? Is information included in NEC_Datasheet_LCD22WV-english.pdf enough (found on NEC LCD 22WV product info page)? What tools there are available to generate proper modeline for a LCD monitor for Linux? MS Windows (MS Windows XP Home) correctly detects and use 1680x1050 resolution; can I somehow get modeline information from MS Windows?


1) It might be hardware problem with the monitor itself, as the same LiveCD Linux distribution that couldn't autodetect recommended 1680x1050 mode for NEC LCD 22WV monitor, correctly autodetects recommended 1440x900 mode for slightly smaller NEC LCD 19WV monitor from the same family, by the same producent.

2) Or it might be problem with graphics card (NVIDIA Riva TNT2 M64) not supporting such resolution, or with graphics driver not supporting such resolution.

Fedora :: No Monitor Input During Boot, Unable To Enter Text Mode From X Window

Nov 24, 2009

I installed Fedora 11 on my system (see below) using the i686 DVD. The graphical install worked just fine, and after the system booted back up, the X server was working very well.

There is no boot text. On the other system with Fedora 11, I can see the boot text scroll by in the window and/or a progress bar at the bottom of the monitor during the boot sequence. On this system, the monitor says "No Input", and nothing appears until the login prompt for the X window. I am able to enter the BIOS configuration page and navigate through it without any issues. I can also edit the grub commands before Fedora loads without a problem.

If I boot in text mode, no login prompt appears. If I wait long enough, the monitor enters the power save mode since it is not receiving a signal. I am able to log in to the system with my user name and password, and then start the X server. Once the server starts, the monitor turns back ON and all is well.

From the X window, I use the CTL+ALT+F2 key to enter text mode. The monitor stops responding. If I press the ENTER key a couple of times, then press ALT+F7, I can briefly see the text window with a couple of login prompts before the X window starts responding again.

How can I get the text mode to work? Why is there no input to the monitor when booting?

Programming :: C++ Behavior Different On Win/ubuntu?

Jun 9, 2011

So i have this simple c++ program, which has an array of ints and a pointer to it. Then i have to change one element in the array. Problem is that on ubuntu(netbeans) it works the first time i change the element, then for the other times there is no change in the array after leaving the function.

First i thought it was a bug, but i tried the code on win(visual studio) and it worked like it should.

I don't understand what the problem is? Im not using any platform specific function(that i know of )?

Ubuntu :: Different NTFS Volume Behavior In 10.04?

May 17, 2010

Ubuntu 64 bit is installed on the hard disk with two partitions: one for Ubuntu, another is NTFS partition called Shared. Before upgrading to 10.04 Shared volume was available. To mount it, it was necessary to enter the password.After upgrading to 10.04, I see two volumes: Shared and Shared_. Places menu contains Shared item. When I click it, it opens without password, and shows /media/Shared_, with correct contents. Original Shared volume appears in the media directory:


root@alex-64:/media# ls -l
total 12
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 6 2010-04-21 19:49 cdrom -> cdrom0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 2010-04-21 19:49 cdrom0
drwx------ 2 root root 4096 2010-05-09 08:25 Shared
drwx------ 1 alex alex 4096 2010-05-17 08:56 Shared_

Shared volume is empty. Can this be fixed? It is OK to work with Shared_ volume?

Ubuntu :: Odd Behavior In Lucid After Boot?

Jun 3, 2010

I upgraded to Lucid from Karmic a few weeks ago. The upgrade went fine. Then I decided to move my exit, maximize, and minimize buttons to the right side. I used Ubuntu Tweak to do this. Since that time I have very odd behavior after I boot Lucid.The booted system comes up with an X for a cursor. There are no exit, maximize, and minimize buttons on my window bar. Finally, I can open a terminal, but cannot type anything in it.Sometimes I can get things back to normal by using Ubuntu Tweak to move the buttons to the left or right (depending on where they were before the boot). Sometimes I have to open System>Preferences>Appearance> and change Visual Effects from None to Normal or vice versa.I have tried metacity --replace (after getting the terminal window to allow me to type in data), but after I reboot, things are back the way they were. I have an Nvidia GeForce 7300 LE on board graphics card, and I am using the Nvidia current version driver. When things are working correctly, System Monitor shows a compiz process running but not a metacity process. Is this correct?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Tried - Very Odd Screen Behavior?

Apr 12, 2011

I just tried uprgading from 10.10 on my daughter's pc to 11.04(beta) as we wanted to find out about Unity et al. I thought the upgrade went well but on reboot when the desktop comes up, it's all funky in behavior - mouse is jump, arrows don't reliably work the menus - odd background images show up in graphic blocks. Do you think I can salvage this, or should I am I stuck reloading back to 10.10?

It's part of Live CD, I'm going to make publicly available, so I want to boot straight to into the script.
