Debian Hardware :: HW Acceleration For Browsers

May 25, 2014

I just installed Debian Stable on an old HP Mini 110-1033CA netbook. glxinfo indicates that I have Intel 945GME graphics. xserver-xorg-video-intel package is installed but neither google-chrome stable nor Firefox 29 appear to be able to use hardware acceleration. "about:support" and "chrome://gpu" both show that hardware acceleration is unavailable.

How can I get my graphics hardware working?

Code: Select allnathan@hpmini:~$ glxinfo | grep OpenGL
OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) 945GME x86/MMX/SSE2
OpenGL version string: 1.4 Mesa 8.0.5

Debian :: Security Status Of Web Browsers

Dec 16, 2015

In the Release Notes for Jessie, it is stated that webkit browsers do not receive security updates in a timely manner and so are not secure. It is recommended that one uses a gecko-based browser or Chromium for 'general' web browsing. Yet I haven't read anything about this elsewhere and I'm guessing a lot of people don't read the Release Notes, so perhaps it's only something I would only need to worry about if I worked for MI6?

Anyway, Chromium and Iceweasel are becoming far too sluggish for my computer. I would want to experiment with Konqueror, Midori, Epiphany and Opera, but don't want to do anything insecure. I'm of the understanding that without Mandatory Access Control, exploits in applications often allow attackers to access all of the user's files; I want to avoid that.

On the Opera page on Debian Wiki, it says 'Opera is a non-free (proprietary) software. It isn't supported by Debian. It's probably wiser to use a supported web browser ! '.

Debian Configuration :: Browsers Cannot Go To Internet?

Sep 3, 2011

I've installed debian and configured the network: I do ping to the gateway and it connects, I ping one distant server directly with the IP and it can see it (but not with ping [URL]), but when I try to use internet it says that maybe the url is wrong, but it is not.

And when I try to update (apt-get update) it give me a bunch of errors :
W: Failed to fetch ... elease.gpg Could not resolve ''

Debian :: Disable 3D Video Acceleration With Yahoo Parameter

Mar 13, 2016

My system is a 2.0Ghz Dual Core PowerMac G5 Ram 16Gb - 2Tb HDD - It is running Jessie 8.3 [new Install] and seems stable enough.....! My system is showing the message below on boot up, but I don't know why? I have had to disable the 3D video acceleration with a Yaboot parameter "nouveau.noaccel=1' to get the system to load KDE. I am also having some bluetooth headaches (along with many other people apparently).

Debian :: Turn On Graphics Acceleration Again Without Having The Screen Flashing On And Off?

Dec 17, 2010

I initially installed Debian Lenny on my system but couldn't get sound to work so I upgraded to squeeze hoping that the newer kernel would somehow fix that. Unfortunately, the update caused the screen to flash on and off starting at the login screen - I'd get a split second with the screen on and then it would go off for a second or two. The boot screen still allows me to boot from Lenny's linux kernel, and that still works. I also had this problem when I installed ubuntu on this computer so after some searching around I remembered that adding radeon.modeset=0 as a boot option fixed this. Now the screen no longer flashes, but everything is really slow - I think that disabled graphics acceleration? After some searching around it seems that these problems are probably caused by something called KMS in newer linux kernels but I don't really know.

Anyway, does anyone have any ideas as to how I could turn on graphics acceleration again without having the screen flashing on and off? Or suggestions for making sound work? I think in the past (on ubuntu) I ended up having to enable the proprietary graphics driver, but on the other linux distros i've tried I used proprietary graphics and flash and my computer got slower and slower and started to crash, so I'd rather stick to the open source driver if possible - i don't need really need 3d acceleration. Stability is the reason I switched to debian. My computer is running Debian squeeze amd64, intel core 2 duo e8400, ati radeon 4830, 4 gigs of ram. relevant results from lspci: 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller. 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV770 LE [Radeon HD 4800 Series] 01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc HD48x0 audio maybe part of the audio problem is that there are two audio devices listed?

To do it, I first stop lightdm and do it in tty, but it fails with a long can I give you that tty output? I tried both with > and with tee, but the file I indicate as output is created empty.

Debian Hardware :: Unable To Disable Mouse Acceleration

Oct 30, 2015

I'm using Debian Jessie with nvidia, and i am unable to disable mouse acceleration.

I have tried using this config in xorg.conf.d but without success.

Select all Section "InputClass"
   Identifier "Cooler Master Storm Havoc Mouse"
   MatchIsPointer "yes"
   Option "AccelerationProfile" "-1"
   Option "AccelerationScheme" "none"

In the xorg log it seems as if the devices are incorrectly recognized

[     6.786] (--) evdev: Cooler Master Storm Havoc Mouse: Found 1 mouse buttons

[Code] ....

Here it seems as if the mouse is recognized twice, once as a mouse and once as a keyboard, where it says "Cooler Master Storm Havoc Mouse: (accel) keeping acceleration scheme 1" so I'm wondering if this is what causing the problem with mouse acceleration not working.

However my USB headset also seems to be recognized as a keyboard in the xorg log, but it works just fine. In xinput list and xfce mouse settings, the mouse is listed twice and even the keyboard is listed as a mouse.

Debian Hardware :: Video Acceleration For Xpress 200M?

Mar 13, 2010

I installed Lenny on my HP/Compaq nx6125 (the Sempron 32 bit model). Although X is running OK, I can't get video acceleration working. Games like Nexuiz are unusable, and programs like Stellarium and Google Earth simply fail to load. i attached some information below.

Currently, I had the free radeon driver installed. The non-free fglxr drivers are available, but I read that they do not support old chipsets like the 200M. I would like to know some pointers or instructions on how to get acceleration working. Most of the information I read seems to be outdated.

Debian Hardware :: Certain Libraries Compiled With Acceleration Support?

Sep 10, 2010

I just set up my Debian Squeeze (previously I was an Ubuntu/Kubuntu user) with KDE and Catalyst 10.8 to run my HD5070 graphics card. I've read alot on various forums of all the 5xxx users like me unable to properly setup the system and others who say thier video watching, wine game playing and composition are working fine. The problem is tearing while playing video or manipulating windows within the DE. I have read ALOT about this subject as it is obviously very important to me. I've read alot 60+ page threads on phoronics full of names like xv and libva and about using mplayer with gl so on and so forth. Problem is, I can't find a wiki to explain how they mesh together. My questions are:

1. Are certain libraries compiled with acceleration support?
2. If so, why are other libraries not compiled with acceleration support?
3. I get a feeling the libraries these guys are using are different ffmpeg and stuff that those in the repos. Are they?
4. If so, where do you get them?

In short, how does one get compositing and watch a movie tear free (the tearing occurs with or without compositing)? No amount of xorg.conf playing fixes it and the driver is properly installed with direct rendering.

The result of all is:
virtualbox is still not running. I use experimental branch flash is not working now. flashplugin was installed, I restarted my browsers, not working. I tested it with opera, chromium and iceweasel.

My questions are:
How I ever can go back to stable?

Debian Multimedia :: No 3d Acceleration Intel 945 + Slow Scrolling Web Pages?

Debian Multimedia :: Flashplayer Video Hardware Acceleration Working?

May 24, 2011

All of the videos on tennistv are flash. The pre-recorded videos seem to play okay using iceweasel and flashplugin-nonfree but the CPU is very high. When she watches live streamed matches the video stalls and jumps, so I have been trying to figure out why. Tennistv support people say that Linux isn't supported and that streaming is "harder" but don't explain why. They suggested using Google chrome, which did seem to work as well as iceweasel but no better. In desparation I tried XP and it was much better and uses much less CPU.

The only difference I could think of was that flash video hardware acceleration works by default in XP, so I started reading up on Flash video acceleration for linux. The latest Adobe flash player releases appear to support video acceleration, but it's switched off by default. So I upgraded to the latest version and did and then restarted iceweasal if you right click on a flash video you can set hardware acceleration in a tick box, but that seems to be there whether the above is config file is there or not there isn't a live tennis match on again until June 6th. How can I tell if hardware acceleration is actually working or not? The PC is has a 3GHz CPU and 1G RAM. Seems nuts that it can't play video properly. Its a Dell SX280.

Debian Multimedia :: Urdu Font Characters Appear Disjointed In Browsers

Oct 1, 2010

I'm on a Debian Lenny system. I recently installed scim to use the Urdu language and have gotten it to work by following the instructions on this website.

Everything works except that Iceweasel and Epiphany don't display the typed Urdu fonts properly. The characters are there but sometimes they don't join properly.

This problem doesn't occur with other programs such as OpenOffice, etc.

How fonts should be displayed (eg. OpenOffice): [URL]

How fonts are displayed in Iceweasel: ہ ا ں

How do I make Iceweasel and Epiphany behave properly? The characters remain disjointed even if I select the traditional keyboard method of entering text (i.e. via the Keyboard Indicator GNOME applet [India>Urdu]).

I have the appropriate locales installed:

locale -a

I've noticed that even though these characters appear disjointed in Iceweasel or Epiphany, they appear normal when I look at the entered text, via Firefox in Windows. That's strange.

The Character Encoding is the same in the browsers on both OS s - UTF8. So clearly this isn't a character encoding issue I guess. There appears to be a problem with the way Urdu fonts are rendered in the Debian version of Firefox (gecko engine issue maybe?).

Debian Multimedia :: Upgraded To Jessie From Wheezy - Sound Plays On Everything But Browsers

Dec 25, 2014

I just installed wheezy and upgraded to jessie. I had previously gotten sound working in wheezy by installing the flashplugin-nonfree and flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound packages, after configuring my headset in system settings. However, now I can't get sound to play in firefox. I've installed flashplugin-nonfree, flashplugin-nonfree-extrasound, and pulseaudio, still without luck. The volume is turned all the way up in alsamixer, sound tests play fine, and I can play music in VLC without any problems. This leads me to believe it's not a problem with drivers, but with some package I'm missing that will allow firefox to play sound. Sound wasn't working in the default video player either, before I installed the flash plugin. Is there something I'm missing?

Also, sound doesn't play on Konqueror either (KDE browser), which seems to indicate it's a problem with flash and not with firefox itself. After removing the flash plugin and installing pepperflashplugin-nonfree to ensure the pepper plugin was used instead of flash, sound still would not play in chromium, so I reinstalled the flash plugin and still don't have sound in any browser.

Debian Installation :: Onboard Graphics Card Setup - Full Hardware Acceleration Not Activated

Sep 5, 2015

I'm running hardware already considered legacy and I was made painfully aware that those drivers, for ATI cards, are only available from Jessie repositories; yet, somehow I was able to have my system configured to run not the stock drivers the system used for installation but, allegedly, proprietary drivers.

I did notice an overall improvement on how the system displays everything on the screen but after fumbling around the system trying to install a game I had a message warning that only software acceleration was activated and not full hardware acceleration, which was what I was aiming at.

After going through a lot of guides on the web I was able to:

a) discover the system is running MESA drivers (or so I have understood)
b) install headers for my system but somehow along the way I fumbled whatever I was doing and I probably now have a lot of loose ends in the system

Being Debian (and rock solid) the system is still running smoothly but I really want to clean up after myself and correct what I can and improve where is possible.

Using Debian stable. 64-Bit. I can play videos and music using Totem and VLC. And I can play audio files with audacious and Rhythmbox. And I can play flash in firefox and google-chrome. But, if I open audacious and then play a flash file in Firefox or google-chrome audacious crashes as well as other multimedia players that I have open such as Totem, VLC and/or Ryhthmbox.

Would like to know if you can offer some troubleshooting steps to take so that I can play a flash file in a browser and still play an mp3 file in the audio player without having to kill those processes and restart.
