Ubuntu :: Screen, Graphics Card And Input Device Setting Could Not Be Detected / Speech Dispacher Configured For User Sessions?
Sep 6, 2010
i am having dell inspiron 1540 laptop installed with ubuntu 10.04 (updated). i wanted to install LAMP(Linux,Apache,MySQL,PHP) for software development purpose.
but after restarting the system, following things occured:-Message box appears saying "Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode" Your screen, graphics card and input device setting could not be detected... OK
Then i get prompt saying what would you like to do ?Run ubuntu in low-graphics mode for just one session.
i get a message starting display in one minute.....nothing happens ... i switch to text mode by pressing
escape. There is a brown color star before: Speech dispacher configured for user sessions.on battery state there is a infinte loop i.e. no response and system just hangs there...startx at text mode makes the screen blank...
Please tell which part of '/var/log/Xorg.0.log' sholud be scanned to find required information.
i am a new to ubuntu How to solve this problem i donot have internet connection and its important that i get it repaired as soon as possible....essential to get it running else i will be forced to goto Windows...
I am working on an embedded system, which is an USB MSC device that supports some vendor specific scsi commands. I am using FC10 laptop as USB host for testing, and it runs some small apps based on sg3. All has been well for ~ a week. The FC10 laptop is able to communicate with the device and retrieve data. Suddenly, starting from today, the laptop is not able to properly detect the device. When plugged-in, the MSC device is detected as input device (I thought). This is observed from "dmesg" output and changes in "/dev/input/".The device under development is running at full speed. When I connect to winXP, no problem. A windows file explorer pops up, showing the content of the drive.Also, the FC10 has no problem with other USB flash drive (high speed).
Ubuntu is not the problem; I don't think. I'm running Maverick 10.10. With my computer I have to unplug and plug back in the graphics card every time I want to start up the computer so I usually keep it running 24-7. There was a power surge and when I got it back running, once it reached the load boot screen and it was stuck their for awhile. Then it instantly sent me to x-term. So I tried logging in and typing:
sudo start gdm
It said it was already running but I could not display anything or login the normal way. I restarted and the same thing happened. I managed to get to Recovery Mode and I fixed broken packages and then I ran it in low graphics mode. It said that the display, monitors, input, and graphics card could not be detected. If there was a way to resize the screen to something more tolerably than 800x600 in low graphics mode I'd be glad to hear it. I could at least stick around to using that until I can fix some stuff up.
I got Linux Ubuntu because my Vista installation messed up, and I couldnt find the recovery CD. Im pretty glad I installed Linux, as it seems really freidnly, and a bit more open that Windows, I must admit. The problem is, I am trying to install my Nvidia GeForce 8600GTS on the system, and it isnt working. It was working fine on Vista before, so it shouldnt be a hardware problem. I have followed various instructions on websites, whioch take me throguh some stuff about stopping GNOME, removing * linux restricted module * and so on. But when I get to the crucial point, with the agreements and installations for Nvidia, it tells me it cant detect any graphics cards.
I use a Logitech USB headset with microphone at work for phone conferencing, and for some reason whenever I restart Ubuntu (and sometimes seemingly at random times), the settings for the audio input device revert to the defaults (the internal audio hardware).I can always reset it back to the USB headset by going to the sound configuration menu (Preferences -> Sound -> Input), but if any applications that use a microphone are already running, they will need to be restarted in order to make use of the newly configured input device.
While using Ubuntu I have had few problems and it has generally just worked. One problem I have had is that while using my computer on occasion everything will be stopped and there will a message against a black background telling me the graphics card and screen could not be detected I have several options which are something like.
Run Ubuntu in low graphics mode for one session (which brings me to a normal login) Run Ubuntu from a console (or something like that, it goes to a console) Troubleshoot the error (I'm new to Ubuntu and never tried it) Restart X (I never used it)
I think I missed one or two. "Run Ubuntu in low graphics mode for one session" works for me, but it is still a nuisance that I have to login again. It doesn't happen that often, not everyday at least and happens at random. I could have been using it for over an hour so I wonder why it suddenly can't detect the graphics card or monitor.
I installed a new copy of F13 this morning on my fairly new laptop.32 Bit Intel, 3GB Memory 120GB HDD. The problem I've got is that my Monitor/Graphics card is not getting detected and as a result I'm getting a horrible Resolution/Refresh rate. When I run
lspci | grep VGA
I get this 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] 771/671 PCIE VGA Display Adapter (rev 10). how I can get my monitor/graphics recognized to work in the Full Resolution.
when i start uubuntu it automatically goes to tty with out letting me login. then when i press startx it says:
NVIDIA: failed to initialize the nvidia graphics device pci:0:13:0 nvidia: please check your systems kernal log for additional erroe nvidia: messages and refer to chapter 8 nvidia: failed to initialize the nvidia graphics device! nvidia: screen found, but none have a usable configuration fatal screen error: no screen found
right before this i had activated a nvidia graphics device
I've just installed ubuntu 10.10 on my desktop system. it worked fine with my 5770 but when using my gtx 460 it has a crashing problem. After roughly 30 secs running the screen has a red cast and a grid pattern to the bottom right of the mouse. Need directions to solve this such as new drivers or an exact sequence etc as i've only got 30 secs to completee process before it freezes. Specific graphics card is a gainward gtx 460 GLH too btw
I write quite a few little bash scripts to do all sorts of funky stuff, the problem is they would be in an un-secure state ie. when reading or making use of user input into a script, i haven't checked for what the user has inputted into the script. Therefore obviously leaving open security whole that the script could end up doing other things i dont want it to do. Whats the best way in bash to be validating user input to reduce the chances of this happening. Read in a user input or when starting a script with an argument ./script argument
This argument isn't validated so it could be: yes my name is me;rm -Rf /*
So its basically reducing what could happen, therefore i gues one thing to do would be to check for occurrences of ';' in any user input, whatelse and how should i do this?
I have a rig with 4 graphics cards. When I installed Ubuntu, only 3 of them got detected, the 4th did not.Now, I've fixed that problem. However, when booting up Ubuntu, it stays on the purple blank screen for a while, then goes frozen on the logo with 5 red dots.I've tried re-configuring xorg with the command line, however I had no luck
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on what used to be a windows vista. I bought me a new graphics card today so that I could run dual screen (GeForce210). I saw a guide at [URL] and I followed it.
I typed: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current then I restarted my computer, once again as instructed I typed: sudo nvidia-xconfig then logged out as instructed...
After I logged out the screen went black and I was not able to login. So I restarted my computer. Now when I turn on my computer I am getting this error and it's stopping at it.
fsck from util-linux-n/g 2.17.2 /dev/sda1: clean, 255658/294092280 files, 5031534/117616640 blocks *starting apparmor profiles Skipping profile in /etc/apparmor.d/disable: usr.bin.firefox *setting sensors limits Starting GNUstep distributed object mapper: start-stop-daemon: unable to stat /usr/bin/gdomap/ (no such file or directory) speech-dispatcher disabled: edit /etc/default/speech-dispatcher *starting the winbind daemon winbind
It stops on this screen. I do not want to wipe it but I cannot get it started. I do have an external hard drive and at the moment I am using my Ubuntu disc to "try Ubuntu" I was going to try backing up everything I have but it will not let me access root because I am not logged on to that user, is there anything I can do to get pass this? I've called around and no one is willing to work on my computer since it is now running on Ubuntu 10.10
When I start ubuntu I get a black screen, I can't do anything, this started when I installed the new driver for my graphics card. I don't know what to do. I have a i7 core (64-bit) and nvidia GTX 260 (twice).
Just fitted an Inno3D (I-7300LE-G4E3) graphics card and I get a distorted boot up screen, a virtually unreadble boot menu (lots of extra white bits all over the screen) and when the system is booting the black screen with "booting from .." and the underscore at the end, is covered with white commas (?!), then the login screen pops up for a fraction of a second, then get a blank screen and no signal-cant get anything after this (or from the vga port on the pc)-I ve tried logging in even though I cant see anything, but no music , nothing.
Thought I might have to download drievers AFTER I d installed it, but as I had this problem, I removed it and tried to download driers before installation. Not sure which of the 4 to try, but tried 2 and neither works-GDebi is offered as an app to open them but nothing happens, nothing happens if I just click on them and when I try and install them from a terminal with the script from the nVidia site, it says unable to open them.
I'm using an Intel Q45 graphic card, VGA and HDMI. I have two monitors and both work with Win7, splitting nicely. However in Suse it doesn't find the second monitor, the one on the HDMI port. However Suse does find that there is a HDMI port it could use. It's just not set up to have a screen attached to it.Xinerama won't work. I tried it despite the fact that it shouldn't I have tried numerous xorg.conf setting according to a number of sites that were very helpful and very thorough. I tried to modify their advice but it simply didn't work out for me.It seems like the screen is simply not acknowledged within the system for some reason. I'm running OpenSUSE 11.2 with KDE4.4, factory and my other systems pick up the screen without a hitch. My home system did the same with a HDMI connection so if anyone can point me in the right direction or even better
I installed this graphics card update in kubuntu 11.04 [URL].... And when now kubuntu boots to a command line interface login screen I don't mind reinstalling to fix it, i would just like to install the latest version of the graphics card driver. I've tried twice with the same results, how i can fix it?
i don't know what this os want from me one moment everything is fine the next it's not first of all it started asking me to choose resolution on startup it said undefined b31 and i have to press enter then 366 for 1024x1280 32 bit how can i fix this problem how can i define 366 resoultion as default and how can i update the screen card driver for 10.1 i have ati hd 3650 agp card. and by the way what are the cool things i can do with graphics here except the rottaing windows.
I'm using a Gateway LT3103u running a dual boot of Win 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 (separate partitions) and ever since I've started using Ubuntu (last October) I've had persistent graphic card problems.
My graphics card is the ATI Radeon X1270.
Right now I can't use any visual effects because of I do the screen spazzes out and becomes unusable. This isn't a big deal for me since I don't use them but I figured it's relevant to the problem.
Even with visual effects off I still have problems and at times parts of the menu will stay on the screen in a little box which covers any windows that open beneath it. The only way to get rid of it is to turn visual effects on so the screen resets then hit use previous settings.
I've been using ubuntu on a new desktop for a couple of months, but i had an old HP that was given to me in my basement. It has 384Mb of ram, and thats because i had a 256Mb stick laying around. I installed debian becuase it is more suited for older hardware (at least from what I've read). It installed fine, but it boots to a blank screen, and pressing ctrl+alt+F2 bring me to the command line. I checked /etc/X11/xorg.conf to change the driver to vesa, to find out my video card isn't even shown. I ran lspci and I found that it says my graphics card is Intel Corporation 82810E DC-133 (CGC) Chipset graphics controller (rev3) In the device section of xorg.conf, it merly says Identifier"Configured Video Device"
Debian testing: $ uname -a Linux jilldando 2.6.32-trunk-486 #1 Sun Jan 10 05:53:18 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux Today I upgraded my PC with a Radeon HD 5550 video card, it has HDMI o/p with sound on it. After boot up I get get the usual sounds from the mother boards onboard intel sound card EXCEPT speech. Initially I thought it would just be that alsa might be piping synth usuage to the Radeon card so I edited the alsa-base.conf file. So I added the following to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf alias snd-card-4 snd_hda_intel
and changed: options snd_hda_intel index=0 to: options snd_hda_intel index=0,4 and rebooted, but this made no difference. Still startup sounds and sounds etc but no speech. I used the alsa project to check and these are the results: Code:
I have a Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 motherboard with integrated graphics that shows up on lspci as an ATI Radeon 2100. I also bought a PCI-Express Nvidia graphics card so I could use the VDPAU feature on Linux (plays H.264 in hardware). The BIOS has three settings about which display to initialize first:
I cannot get anything, not even a splash screen or POST messages, to emerge from the PCI-Express graphics card. (I'm using a DVI connector; the card also has an HDMI output.)I cannot get the kernel lspci to see the graphics card; the only VGA controller it acknowledges is the integrated one.Running dmidecode acknowledges the existence of an x16 PCI Express slot, and it says
Current usage: Unknown
There is an additional BIOS setting called "Internal Graphics Mode" which is normally set to "Auto" which means it is supposed to prefer a PCI Express VGA card. I set it to "Disabled" which now means I'm getting no output at all. I will soon be learning how to do a BIOS reset!
Other information: The PCI-E card is a MSI N210-MD512H GeForce 210. This is a fanless card. Although there are no fans to see turning, the heat sink on the PCI-E card is definitely getting hot, so the card is getting some sort of power.It gets all its power from the PCI-E slot; there is no external power connector.The BIOS is an AMI Award BIOS.how can I make the PCI Express graphics card visible to Ubuntu?
I've got an older graphics card I'm trying to use. It actually runs fine through the bios and even works when fedora is loading. But once fedora finishes loading half the screen turns into thousands of multicolored horizontal lines.
I've recently installed Debian. But the wireless network is not working.

I am trying to perform VM cloning using KVM in a centos 5.6 machines. I copy the memory contents of a running vm to an external state file and try to use that to start another VM in a different machine. While starting the cloned VM I provide a different mac address but once it resumes it has the old one . I tried changing the mac address in ifcfg-eth0 but I get the error: Device eth0 has a mac address xx:xx instead of configured xx:xx.Ignoring .
Is there some way to change the ip/mac of the cloned vm without the need to restart the VM ( Then the purpose of cloning will be defeated). Thanks a lot for the info.
I want to set up separate X-Sessions for my two monitors. One is an old CRT monitor which I will use as a TV due to it's size/resolution and the first is a laptop panel. First off, I don't have an NVidia card, I am running Intel graphics. Second, I have some general questions. First off would I need a separate desktop environment running on the second screen? How would I switch the focus between the screens? Is there anything else I should know about doing this? This is my lspci readout:

I have a Dell Vostro 3300, i5 460 processor with a NVIDIA 310M Graphics Card. I'm doing a KUBUNTU 10.10 (Maverick) install with the following results. The Live CD boots just fine to, "TEST," or "Install." Installation goes fine. However, the graphics card being used is the Intel i915. I have tried installing the NVIDIA drivers directly from the, "Additional Drivers," tool and after the reboot I get through the boot screen to the console. I try to manually startx and I get the errors, "no device found," "no screens found." The second install I tried purging and blacklisting the nouveau drivers and entering safe mode. Then using apt-get install nvidia-current. After that, nvidia-xconfig. Same results.
The third attempt I re-installed and this time downloaded the drivers from the Nvidia site (version 256.53). Blacklisted nouveau, remove all nvidia, updated initramfs, etc. The install went fine however I still end up at a console after boot with the same messages as above. No device found, no screens found. I've tried searching through the forum and web and have tried things like adding the modset option along with many other hacks, tips and fixes. still, no go.I can live with the Intel graphics for now although I lose 512MB of memory. Unfortunately there is no way to disable or change this set-up in the BIOS. I've seen quite a few bug reports at Launchpad:
1. Is this something I should just wait til a fix comes? Will a fix come? 2. Is there, or will there be an official Updated Ubuntu Guide for Maverick to install NVIDIA drivers with this tecnology? 3. Lastly, is there anything else I should try??
Lucid is not in testing but it's released.It seems it works now, with all desktop effects activated and switching users and closing sessions.The only thing I still don't know is which screensaver can I use if removing gnome-screensaver?
I'm looking for a way to count the numbers of user sessions opened without the help of the command WC, it just need to tell me how many users are online and tell me the numbers of sessions the user have active. I can get the list of users connected, and sort them by alphabetical order:
I just installed Debian 5.0.4 successfully. I want to use the PC as a File Server with two Drives configured as a RAID 1 device. Everything with the RAID device works fine, the only question I have belogs to the GRUB 0.97 Booloader. I would like to be able to boot my Server even if one of the disks fail or the filesystem containing the OS becomes corrupt, so I configured only the data partitions to be a RAID 1 device, so on the second disk should be a copy of the last stable installation, similar to this guide:[URL]...
My co-worker and I are working on this robotics project where robots are controlled over the web. I don't want to go into all the details, but basically the users visit a page where they have access to a PHP-based interface that allows them to send commands to robots in our tech lab (via an intermediate server). Our web server is running Apache.
Anyway, now we need to implement session control, with user-names and passwords so that only certain people can have access to the interface at a certain time, with access to only certain robots, et cetera. We were hoping there was some kind of pre-fab FOSS solution for handling both the session control and maintaining the MySQL user/password database.
My co-worker knows a little PHP, and I know a little MySQL, but we are both noobs enough that we would prefer to do as little of this from scratch as is possible. We don't have a lot of time, and I know it is easy for inexperienced MySQL programmers to introduce security vulnerabilities.
using a rather incompatible laptop (Gateway ID49C) with 10.04; by this I mean that I have problems with sound output, brightness control, keypad functionality, occasional freezes, etc.Anyway, the Update Manager popped-up last night, proposing me to download some 400 Mbs of "updates" to installed programs, I presume. I told him to go ahead. After downloading, it proceeded to install the updates, and I left the computer unattended. Hours later, I came back to find the computer hibernating: it woke up to show me update manager freezed on some grub update, to my horror.
I shut it down. Now, whenever I try to boot, I find a very low quality 10.04 text with four white dots that "fill up" as it boots (instead of the fancy logo), then the user selection thing pops-up. No response from keyboard or keypad. Howver, the system is NOT frozen, since the visible clock actually works.I can access GRUB (I have a dual boot) but the recovery mode does not work: it freezes at some point.
I just bought a new graphics card and installed it. it works perfectly although my sound worked perfectly this morning and I think the graphics card is overriding my built in sound card. I need help fixing the sound. The graphics card I bought is an ATI Radeon Cedar HD 5450 The sound I want to use is HDA VIA VT82xx when I run alsamixer I get Card:
very much like everybody i am also waiting for centos 5.3, because 5.2 could not sit on my notebook due to obvious driver issues. would anybody tell if centos 5.3 support my x3100 graphics card and bcm 4311 wlan card?
I have several users on handhelds and they like to let their sessions time out. Their zombie processes then cause record locks.I've come up with calls for killing the pids for any prior sessions started by a given user. This procedure would be executed in the .bash_profile.
while hardening a red hat enterprise 5 installation I have done something that causes the sessions of all user accounts except root to close immediately after authentication. in the /var/log/secure log file it will show three log entries per attempt:
<date/time><hostname> login: pam_unix(login:session): session opened for user fred by LOGIN(uid=0) <date/time><hostname> login: LOGIN ON tty1 BY fred <date/time><hostname> login: pam_unix(login:session): session closed for user fred
Since I did a number of things and have not been able to identify what caused this.
