Debian :: Change Settings For Games In Jessie

Jan 15, 2016

I am currently running Jessie (Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie))

On occasion I like to play Tetravex, Sudoku, etc. I also like to play it at different levels of difficulty and complexity. It used to be very easy to change these levels, but now it appears to be impossible because Jessie offers me the possibility to close the game, move it to another workspace or minimize/maximize/resize/etc it.

But change the level of difficulty?

Nope, not a chance. That option, my dear fellow, is no longer available.

Why? Who decided to change the user interface to such an extent that simple and basic operations are no longer available? Did a MS or Mac mole infiltrate the Debian project team?

Debian Configuration :: Jessie Nvidia-settings Multiple Monitors

Aug 30, 2015

I've always used Debian with a single monitor and no need of proprietary drivers, because I usually don't do graphics or multimedia. Now I'm asked to set-up a machine with 3 nvidia video cards (770) and 4 monitors and everything went south. I started with just 2 monitors connected to 2 different video cards, not wanting to push my luck.

I installed a fresh Jessie and followed the instruction to install the nvidia drivers and tools from the Wiki. Everything went smooth. After reboot I executed (as root) nvidia-settings and I configured the two monitors to be one to the right to the other, with BaseMosaic option (at this point just one monitor was active) I saved the configuration to /etc/X11/xorg.conf , I even executed nvidia-xconfig as suggested, I rebooted and nothing happened, only one monitor was working, while the other -- looking again in the nvidia settings -- was still disabled.

I then tried with xinerama option and things are even worse, since now both monitors are black. I can login in one textual shell, but then I don't know what to do, since in my 10+ years of linux ... I never had to mess with X server. Is there a way to at least recover a working X without reinstalling everything?

Debian Multimedia :: Nvidia-settings Doesn't Save Across Reboots - Jessie 64bit

Dec 12, 2015

I had some issues with nvidia drivers, and removed all of the packages using

Code: Select allrm /etc/X11/xorg.conf and Code: Select allapt-get purge nvidia*

Upon reboot, I was back with nouveau drivers and proceeded to reinstall nvidia drivers according to [URL] .....

Code: Select allapt-get install nvidia-driver
apt-get install nvidia-xconfig
I can then change my refresh rate using
Code: Select allnvidia-settings
but when I hit "Save to X configuration file", I get the following output in terminal:
Code: Select allroot@debian:/home/anon# nvidia-settings
Package xorg-server was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xorg-server.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'xorg-server' found

As a result, my nvidia preferences aren't saved across reboot.

Here are all of my sources:
Code: Select alldeb [arch=amd64,i386] precise steam
deb-src [arch=amd64,i386] precise steam

deb jessie non-free contrib main   
deb-src jessie non-free contrib main 

[Code] ....

System Specs:
Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 64-bit
Gnome Version 3.14.1
Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-4770K CPU @ 3.50GHz × 8
Graphics: GeForce GTX 780/PCIe/SSE2

Debian Configuration :: Udev Static Device Change From Wheezy To Jessie

Sep 9, 2015

I am using a 3rd party kernel driver that does not support udev properly. When I was using wheezy I placed the required device files in /lib/udev/devices.

The udev in jessie does not appear to support this. Is there any way to have udev create these device files or will I have to create then using a script at boot-up?

Debian Multimedia :: How To Change Simple Scan Preferences In Gnome Jessie

Aug 12, 2015

I had a hard time finding out how to change -- get to-- the simple scan preferences. There is no batten on the screen to open preferences window. I found two way to change the preferences on simple scan.

1. Easy way:
I found that when you run a program in gnome an icon of that application appears on top bar. If you click on that icon a window will appear and one of the items on that window is preferences, by clicking on that you could open preferences window, and change your preferences.

2. Hard way:
Go to applications and open dconf Editor
then go to org section click on it
then go to gnome section click on it
then go to Simple-Scan click on it
now you can change things

Ubuntu :: Change File Permission Settings To Force All Documents To Inherit Parent Document Settings?

Aug 21, 2011

i have a computer with 3 users on it, and a folder using samba that everyone on the network has access to. Lets say that, the folder is stored in /etc/sharedfolder. What happens is, when user1 puts a folder in it, then logs off, user 2 attempts to modify it and fails, because permission is set to 755, and they are not in the same group. (even if they were, it should still need to be 775) Anyway, my current solution is, every 5 minutes a crontab changes permission like so: chmod 777 -R /etc/sharedfiles && chown useradmin:superadmin -R /etc/sharedfiles Which works, but seeing as there is getting close to a gig in there, this is a bad solution, as it eats up the computers resources. Solutions that i think might work:

1) create a script that only changes permissions that need be changed.
2) change file permission settings to force all documents to inherit parent document settings

Debian :: Can't Get Games To Play Right

I'm running Debian on an old iMac G3 power pc. I've just loaded a couple of games for my daughter but the music is staticky and the cursor flickers and goes invisible. Is there anyway to increase virtual memory or something that will make these game work??I know the hardware is old but one of the few(only thing) things it did well with the old OSX system was play games, so I know its not the hardware.

Debian Configuration :: 3D Games Graphics Won't Work

Aug 13, 2010

I've been having this problem for a long time now. It started suddenly and without apparent cause. 3D games won't work. At first I tried to play OpenArena, and it didn't work, the graphics went terribly slow and choppy, videos were not continious, but rather a succession of pictures of movement. I tried installing and re installing the game several times, but nothing... Now, I'm trying to run hedgewars (the re-make of worms) and it doesn't crash or anything, but the graphics are too slow and choppy again. This is the output from the terminal:


The 'there is no soundcard' message is scary... I have been having sound problems lately, where sounds just stops working in all applications, and only restarting the system will bring sound back. So as you can see my audio and video seem to be on the wrong track. But I don't know how to diagnose the disease... by the way. I installed hedgewars from squeeze though I have lenny. I added the squeeze line to sources.list.and then apt-get-ed it. Is that OK?

Debian Multimedia :: Run Games Via Wine - Borked VLC

Sep 5, 2011

i've been experimenting with trying to run games via wine (i don't have windows to do a dual boot with), and i just recently tried to open up a dvd in vlc, and... trouble. it works, but now the player "squishes" the widescreen image into a traditional "tv screen" box. even when do it in fullscreen, it just fills the screen with black and plops the "squished" image in the middle of it. i've watched downloaded mp4 images i got off videos like this, and they look fine, but they're not widescreen images. i'm sure there's something really simple somewhere i gotta fix

Debian Configuration :: Environment To Run Old Linux Games-template

Mar 20, 2016

I have some old linux based games and applications that require old libraries to run.But in the mists of time, I've lost the scripts on how to set up a sandbox environment to run them. Any template for that type of fiddle? I should be able to resource libraries contemporary to the games from my collection of old distros, but my web fu on this matter(jargon) is cracked. It would have to be easier that continually trying to fiddle the MS OS version to run under Wine/PlayOnLinux. I've got Myst II, Civilisation CTP and Railway Tycoon II, although I think the last app I ran was Word Perfect 8.

Debian Multimedia :: Fullscreen Games Cause Big Number On Screen?

Mar 7, 2011

I have recently switched to Debian and got everything working great except for one thing..When I want to kill some time by playing a game (in wine or native) in fullscreen it works fine except for a big number I get in the left corner of my screen that won't go away until I close the game and open the ATI control center.This is very frustrating and quite annoying. I am using a dual monitor setup and I have tried disabling my 2nd monitor when I play a game but that still causes this problem. Also I am using the drivers I got right off the ATI website.

Debian Hardware :: Glxgears Showing 900 FPS But 3d Games Very Slow?

Aug 13, 2011

I just installed Debian Squeeze a couple days ago and haven't had any problems so far except trying to get 3D acceleration to work with my Radeon 5770 card. When running glxgears, I get over 900 FPS and the gears are spinning great. When I try to run a 3D game like OpenArena, ScorchedEarth, or FlightGear, they are all so slow as to be unplayable. (extremely slow)

I've been trying to get this working for a while and had no luck.As per internet advice, I installed firmware-linux-free and firmware-linux-nonfree.

In glxinfo, it says "direct rendering: yes"

In my /var/log/Xorg.0.log file it says:

(WW) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled
(II) RADEON(0): Acceleration disabled
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for vesa
(WW) Falling back to old probe method for fbdev

Debian Hardware :: ALSA Sound Not Persistent In Games Or System

Jul 26, 2011

I recently changed from Gentoo to Debian Squeeze. All went fine but I have an ALSA issue. I have an AMD Athlon II X4 board with a Nvidia (Realtek) sound chip. After installing I got a lot of "no such device" errors, so I installed the Realtek driver the Debian way and the errors vanished. I could successful run alsactl init and alsamixer.

At this point there is no sound neither in games nor system. alsaplay says (on the screen) that it is playing a wav file but there is no sound. My test ''dd if=/dev/urandom of=/dev/dsp'' complains "/dev/dsp : no such file or directory". Well, all clear. modprobing the snd-*-oss modules brings sound alive but I have to do this after every restart. I have no clue how to make this persistent the Debian way.

Debian Multimedia :: 3D Games Fail Recent Squeeze Update?

Apr 16, 2011

I run the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel on Squeeze and the bad nvidia drivers. A recent update, and pardon for not noting which, broke 3d games on my box. From a terminal neverputt yields the following error:

ignatius@lapbox 14:56 [ ~ ]:$ neverputt
X Error of failed request: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 137 (NV-GLX)


I can mv xorg.conf to xorg.conf-pre and nexuiz will fire-up. Without 3d of course. I spent an hour or so last week going over my xorg.conf but it just ain't broke! Someone else saw it, too, and reported it but his post remains alone in the thread as of 10 minutes ago.

Ubuntu :: Can't Change The Display Settings?

Feb 24, 2011

I received Ubuntu 10.10 (a friend gave me the cd) Well, I installed, but I can't change the display settings: the maximum it gives is 900x600 So, I went online and looked for a fix.. I found this:

Sudo dpkg-reconfigure x server-xorg

Well, the problem is that according to the steps that the person who posted the code, I should type this code after executing Terminal before computer boots. and the way to execute Terminal is to have the key: escape holded Well, I do hold the key: escape. but I see no terminal! I have typed in normal mode...but, I guess the code only works before boot up. How can I execute terminal? is there any other way to fix the display settings? I currently have Windows Xp and Ubuntu.... and I have no problem with the display settings on Xp Can I do do from recovery mode?

Because I have 2 operating systems I get a screen like this (except mine is ubuntu 10.10) If I do it from the recovery mode.... would the code works?
