Debian Hardware :: Jessie - Three Monitors (2 Work The Other Is Not Recognized)

May 7, 2015

Running Jessie, x64 Intel iCore 7 16 RAM with a properly partitioned drive to the specifications I prefer. Running the KDE Shell. For some reason my third monitor is not detected by Debian Jessie at all. When I run the command to list the monitors lspci | grep VGA I think. Only two monitors are listed, I know the other monitor works. During Grub bootup it even has some startup text running in it.

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 Hardware :: Elantech Touchpad In Jessie Not Recognized

Dec 1, 2015

I have a very weird issue with a Acer chromebook laptop (CB5-571) After fresh install of Jessie I just can't seem to have any trace of the touchpad and by that I mean nothing in dmesg or /proc/bus/input/devices or even /var/log/Xorg.0.log is mentioning anything about any sort of touchpad device.

So being desperate I loaded live Xubuntu 14 and the touchpad worked just fine so after some checks it turned out that Xubuntu is using elan_i2c driver which I can't find anywhere.

Also I've tried loading the psmose module but that made no difference as I guess the HW is just not recognized by the system.

dmesg |grep PS

Debian Multimedia :: Getting Two Monitors To Work With 1 Nvidia Card?

Sep 4, 2010

I'd be grateful for any suggestions to get a second TV/Monitor to work in addition to the desktop monitor for a PC which runs Lenny. The first monitor is a small TFTLCD 15". Works perfectly with a GEForce FX 5200 nvidia graphic card and uses the 173.14.09 driver. Having obtained an SVGA cable, I connected the card to a rather larger 32" LCD Panasonic TX-L32S10B TV to enable some armchair viewing of internet etc for my parents. The Panasonic TV or monitor shows all the boot messages but the graphical server fails to start. I know that both screens work, either alternatively or simultaneously, having tested with a Puppy live CD.
However, running

nvidia-xconfig --twinview results in an incorrect screen resolution for the 15" TFT Monitor; Gnome Screen Resolution Preferences gives a rather surprising fixed setting of 2048x786/50Hz when the maximum should be 1024x768. The resulting xorg.conf file is:

cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildd@ninsei) Fri Sep 5 22:23:08 UTC 2008
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0

Debian Hardware :: How To Make Two Monitors To Work At Same Time

Jul 13, 2014

Recently I've bought this motherboard : [URL] ...

And this graphic card : [URL] ....

Now I have attached two monitors on the computer,the first one (the monitor that is working) is attached to the DVI port of the nvidia graphic card,the second one is attached on the VGA port of the embedded graphic card of the motherboard.

Since I would like to play a little with blender,I need to use two monitors at the same time because in this way I can follow more video tutorials at the same time.

I'm using this version of debian :

Linux ziomario-Z87-HD3 3.2.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.2.60-1+deb7u1 x86_64 GNU/Linux

and this is the informations concerning the graphics card installed on the computer :

root@ziomario-Z87-HD3:/home/ziomario# lspci -nn | grep VGA 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Haswell Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0412] (rev 06) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation Device [10de:11c0] (rev a1)

root@ziomario-Z87-HD3:/home/ziomario# xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 16384 x 16384

[Code] ....

How to use my two monitors together ?

Debian Multimedia :: VNC Doesn't Work Well With Many Jessie DEs

Dec 29, 2014

I'm trying out a Jessie install and have noticed VNC doesn't work as well as it used to. I often install a desktop environment on a headless machine, disable *dm, and use vnc4server to create a desktop session if I want to use a GUI. When I try to do the same on Jessie, I run into problems.

Using Gnome, all I get is the generic "Oops something went wrong" error. Looking at .xsession-errors, there are some errors that hint at the problem.

Code: Select allXsession: X session started for ryan at Mon Dec 29 06:07:30 CST 2014
X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  109 (X_ChangeHosts)
  Value in failed request:  0x5
  Serial number of failed request:  6
  Current serial number in output stream:  8

[Code] ....

Some possibly related bugs: [URL] ...

The same thing seems to happen with Cinnamon. Since I doubt a fix for the above issue will make it into Jessie, I tried XFCE. However, that doesn't work correctly either. When running XFCE via VNC something is misreporting the version of xrandr as 1.1 instead of 1.4. Since xfsettingsd appears to want version 1.2+, many things are broken.

This post on the Ubuntu forums suggests the issue might be fixed in xfsettingsd version 4.11: [URL] .....

Is there a better way of getting a remote desktop in Jessie that I'm overlooking?

Debian :: HD 6670 Proprietary Driver Not Work Jessie / KDE

May 8, 2015

Everything was working fine on Deb 7.7 with propriety driver. Then I did what I "presumed" to be an "update" through apper but it upgraded to Deb 8. The upgrade borked half way through with errors (cannot remember what they were, unfortunately I had to go out - wasn't expecting an upgrade or I'd have done it with more time).

Apper stated it had part installed stuff and trying to run update again (through apper) then had "no permissions" issues even though I entered password. After a few reboots and upgrading through recovery I "seem" to have resolved that, but might be related to this issue.

After resolving that issue I booted up and the grey GUI login screen was fine, after entering password the next screen was a colourful splash screen (with "Desktop" tab in top right corner), but it doesn't advance from that screen. No mouse, can't click or tab. Ctrl Alt Del does nothing.

The image looked like this, but with only "Desktop" in a black tab at the top right.

[URL] ....

I've never seen this screen before.

After followed this guide using recovery boot:

[URL] ....

Code: Select allapt-get purge "fglrx.*"
rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-core libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 libgl1-mesa-glx:amd64 libgl1-mesa-dri:amd64
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

My system booted fine, albeit low resolution etc.

So I tried to install proprietary again using this Debian how to: [URL] ....

Although the procedure looks the same for Deb7 as it does Deb8 (barring the source).

The same problem happened where I was stuck at the loading/splash screen after GUI login.

So I removed the proprietary drivers again and am now back in, again albeit low res like am back in he 90's. Also, that splash screen doesn't show at all now.

The driver is supposed to be fine with my setup, so is there some issue left over from the borked upgrade perhaps? Everything seems fine otherwise.

Debian Hardware :: Can't Get HP ScanJet 8200 In Jessie To Work

Apr 15, 2015

I'm fairly new to linux. A few months ago I installed Debian Jessie and for the most part everything has gone pretty smoothly. The last piece of hardware I have to get working is my ScanJet 8200 flatbed scanner. From the SANE documentations, I know the hardware is supported, so I assume I must be doing something wrong with setup. It is correctly identified using lsusb:

Code: Select allroot@debian:/home/jessiesgirl# lsusb

Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:8009 Intel Corp.

[code]....

I get an error. Trying to use an application like SimpleScan give me an error telling me that it is unable to connect to the scanner.

Debian Installation :: Boot DVD Don't Work - Jessie With Added Firmware

Jul 10, 2015

I would like to upgrade from Win8.1 to Debian 8. This post might require some Wind expertise as well. I have to deal with the dreaded UEFI interface.

I got the iso with the added firmware from here: [URL] ....

The i386 download and it appears to be 334 MB. I pretty got it because I don't want to mess with the wireless controller (been there done that.)

As far as the Wind side goes I disabled secure boot. Just whenever I get to the fancy blue screen, I select boot from EFI DVD. Then it just says it can't load it and asks if I want to continue loading the OS. This might be useful I used the default Desktop Burning Gadget to burn the disk image.

Debian Multimedia :: 8.0 Jessie - Volume And Fn Keys Doesn't Work

Mar 30, 2015

I recently install a Debian 8.0 Jessie on a Laptop Dell latitude E6540 with gnome 3.14+3. But the problem is that it doesn't recongnize my multimedia buttons, I tried some methods but I didn't get results.

Code:
Code: Select all$showkey --scancodes
volume up   -- 0xe0 0x30 0xe0 0xb0
volume down -- 0xe0 0x2e 0xe0 0xae
volume mute -- 0xe0 0x20 0xe0 0xa0

$showkey --keycodes
volume up   -- 115
volume down -- 114
volume mute -- 113

[Code] ....

When I reassinged the keys on Settings>Keyboard>Shortcuts to F7, F8 and F9 it works, but when use the keys volume up, down and mute It doesn't show anything.

The same happens with Fn + Brightness keys, in this case it worked the first time but then stop to work I don't know why..

Debian Hardware :: Can't Get OpenGL To Work On Radeon Free Drivers (Jessie)

Apr 1, 2014

I'm using Debian Jessie. All the firmware packages are properly installed, and so are the radeon free driver packages.

However, Gallium falls back to llvmpipe, which from what I understand is a software rasterizer and not actually hardware rendering.

Everything works fine except some specific things like KDE's cube animation, which says it can't be enabled because it requires OpenGL.

How do I get Debian to run Gallium properly?

I attached some relevant info...

Debian Hardware :: Sound Sometimes Ceased To Work On Headphones On Jessie System

It has happened to my debian jessie system that the sound sometimes ceased to work, but after a quick review of alsamixer, pavucontrol it was easy to put everything back to normal. Not this time

The sound works as a charm with no headphones, but not with them, and I find them particularly useful for talking with people since the sound quality is way better...

Debian Hardware :: Intel AC 7260 WiFi Not Work In Jessie LXDE With Wicd

Feb 5, 2015

My wifi does not work in the actual debian testing jessie lxde amd64 with wicd version (fresh install). What I've done:

0. Fresh testing jessie install (offline and ignored the question for adding iwlwifi)

1. Adding following sources:
deb http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ jessie main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main contrib non-free

2. apt-get update

3. apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi

4. modprobe -r iwlwifi ; modprobe iwlwifi

So searching the web just brings up the wheezy way solution (backport new kernel and iwlwifi).

But in this case, actual jessie testing kernel is already installed by default and so the actual 43 firmware-iwlwifi

Some information:
Code: Select all# dpkg -l |grep -i iwlwifi
ii  firmware-iwlwifi                      0.43                              all          Binary firmware for Intel Wireless cards

Code: Select all# dmesg | grep wifi
[    7.890216] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: irq 107 for MSI/MSI-X
[    8.478878] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: firmware: direct-loading firmware iwlwifi-7260-9.ucode
[    8.479867] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: loaded firmware version 23.214.9.0 op_mode iwlmvm
[    8.553105] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: Detected Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless AC 7260, REV=0x144
[    8.553193] iwlwifi 0000:02:00.0: L1 Enabled - LTR Enabled

[Code] ....

I must add: lxde Debian uses Wicd, so network-manager is not installed !

Wicd seems to be the problem. After changing to network-manager, everthing is ok.

Next install with the official Jessie release, i will look, why wicd not work out of the box.

Debian Hardware :: Brother Label Printer QL 1060N Doesn't Work / Cut Under Jessie

Oct 8, 2015

I am trying to get the QL1060N to print and cut under Jessie.

I used the Ql1060N on wheezy (cups 1.5.3) with the standard Brother driver and the ptouch/foomatic driver of the QL550. They both worked out of the box.

Configuration for Brother QL1060N Driver:
Description:ql1060n
Location:
Driver:Brother QL-1060N CUPS v1.1 (grayscale, 2-sided printing)
Connection:socket://XXX:9100

[Code] ....

On Jessie (cups 1.7.5):
I first tried the standard Brother driver from here: [URL] ....It didn't work at all. When I print, Cups tells me that the job has been completed, even though nothing has been done. Sometimes I also got the error "job canceled, filter failed", but I can't reproduce this error...

The foomatic/ptouch driver for the QL550 prints like it did before, but doesn't cut the lables automatically like it used to in wheezy. (I'm using the same printing file/picture as in wheezy and also the same configuration.)

Debian Hardware :: HDD Not Recognized In BIOS But Recognized Upon Boot

Sep 18, 2014

I have a backup HDD with a different distro for my laptop and i can boot into it via external usb or if swapped into the laptop. This HDD/install in question is debian testing and was working fine, the issue arose suddenly. I was first suspecting a failure of hardware somewhere on the motherboard, but the hdd i was using with an external usb adapter also works when installed into the machine. also, the HDD is recognized once i have booted using the external HDD and distro, but it is not recognized by the bios. so i dunno, my first guess is something became corrupt within the testing install, but i guess its also possible that there is some wrong with the HDD but thats not immediately apparent as all the data is still accessible.

Should also note that the HDD with testing on it is also recognized when connected via the external usb adapter, while booted from alternative distro/HDD.

Also. just tried this, but i can get the testing HDD/disto to boot if connected externally. it was going pretty quick, but there i did catch a line about a corrupt filesystem. any commands to run to see what might be going on?? log files to look at?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get 3-monitors To Work?

I'm not new to this distro or the forum I only decided to register today seeing as I actually do have a problem and need help because I can't work it out myself. I'm currently trying to get my 3-monitor set-up to work with Natty but I just can't get it to work. I can get 2 of my monitors to work fine in twin-view, and I can move windows between them, but I want to be able to move windows between all three of them. Now, I've tried many different configurations, I've tried making them all Seperate X's, but that didn't work as only two of them turned on and it was like Xorg crashed because Ubuntu would login, but nothing would come up after that it was just like the default Ubuntu wallpaper with no launcher, or desktop or even management. I tried ctrl+alt+f2 to try bring up terminal but that never worked either. i then tried using 2 monitors in twin-view and 1 as a seperate X, but that didn't work either as the same problem happened when I made them seperate X's.

Fedora Hardware :: Way To Get Both Monitors To Work With Nouveau Driver?

Nov 4, 2010

I have two monitors - one connected to the VGA port and the other to the DVI port. Fedora seems to be detecting both monitors (figured this out because when I rotate the desktop cube, the second screen is also seen.). However, the monitor on the DVI port is blank. This happens even if I use just one monitor with the DVI port. I cannot install the proprietary nvidia drivers because my computer hangs (has been happening since fedora 11 or 10), Is there a way to get both monitors to work with the nouveau driver?

I faced this problem in Fedora 13 as well and was hoping both screens would work out of the box in F14. Is there any way I can do this to make it work like nvidia's TwinView?

Slackware :: Letter 'e' Doesn't Work In Terminal - Not Shown Or Recognized

Mar 7, 2010

I've been using Slackware for awhile now on my laptop without a single issue (well except that I can't get the screen brightness to change, but that's a separate issue).

I logged in today and went to the terminal and when I type the letter 'e' it is not shown or recognized. It works when I 'su -' and enter my root password which contains the letter 'e' twice, but otherwise is not recognized.

I have no idea where to even start with this problem. I've logged out and back in. I've restarted twice now, but the problem is not going away. Obviously, my keyboard is working properly as I am typing this message with the letter 'e', but in the Terminal it is not recognized.
