Debian Multimedia :: GNOME Virtual Desktops Across Two Monitors

Apr 25, 2016

I recently installed Debian 8 (Jessie) with the default desktop environment (Gnome), and I use a dual monitor setup. Everything works absolutely fine beyond the fact that when I switch between desktops in the dash (Activities menu?), only the windows on my primary monitor switch, and the ones on my secondary stay the same.

Debian Configuration :: Separate Virtual Desktops On Dual Monitors?

Jul 19, 2011

I have a ThinkPad W520 with nVidia Quadro 1000M and Nouveau drivers. I use external monitor with extended desktop using XRandR. My beef with this setup is that I get just one virtual desktop of a (1440+1920)x1080 size whereas what I would like to have is being able to have one separate (set of) virtual desktop(s) on my 1440x1080 external monitor with, for example, some reference material open, while have other programs working on another (set of) virtual desktop(s) on my main 1920x1080 screen. I've read that this might be possible with so called zaphod mode, but it looks like it involves static rules in xorg.conf which I would like to avoid since from time to time I need to carry my laptop with me without external monitor.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Setup Dual Monitors With Individual (non-mirrored) Desktops

Dec 17, 2010

I am trying to setup Dual monitors with individual (non-mirrored) desktops. AMDCCCLE will only identify the monitor I want to use as primary as number 2 and the monitor I want to use as secondary as number 1 - I have tasksbars, awm, desktop items configured to use the first screen and the second screen is clear for media use. The choice seems to be determined by what output port on my graphic card.. whatever monitor is attached to the HDMI port is called 1. xrandr can only identify the 2nd monitor - the first monitor is unknown I've attached my xorg.conf

Debian Configuration :: Multiple Virtual Servers Be Setup In 2 Desktops?

Jun 12, 2010

I now have 2 desktops running debian. I have virtual servers running in desktop 1, and I am hosting my photos using Gallery2. I have copied Gallery2 and the mysql over to desktop 2. I have entered port forward to desktop 1 using port 80 (using my router), and desktop 2 using port 1000. I can only access Gallery2 in desktop1. If I tried to access Gallery2 in desktop 2, I got re-directed to desktop1.

Questions:

1. Are home routers capable of port forward to more than one computers in a home network behind the firewall of the router? It is Belkin N+ router.

2. Can multiple virtual servers be setup in 2 desktops?

Software :: Put Multiple Virtual Desktops In Panel - Distributions Based In Debian

Jan 21, 2011

According to Distrowatch, the two most downloaded distributions are Mint and Ubuntu. I have put both on my computer. In Mint I can find no way to put multiple virtual desktops in my panel. In Ubuntu 10.10, when I go to synaptic package manager the settings tab with the repositories is dimmed out. I have enabled the sources list in administration but it is a less convenient way to add repositories. Despite what the linux community seems to think, I find that Simply Mepis and Pclinuxos are better for actual use.

Debian :: Startup And Rc's - Run Different Desktops - Gnome - Xfce

Jul 16, 2011

After an error occurred i can log in using the recovery console and startx manually.

If i understood correctly recovery mode uses /etc/rcS.d which starts the computer with minimal services and the normal startup is /etc/rc2.d. What can rc3, rc4 and rc5 be used for? Can anyone run different desktops (gnome, xfce, etc) using these runlevels (i am considering that the base system install is the same for all desktops)? Where i can find information about the services that are listed in the rc folders, since some (hibernate, bluetooth, apache2) are not useful to me at the moment.

I am also interested to find out what makes the computer start at it's default runlevel. Is there a way to start rc2 (or rc3, etc) from the recovery mode? When i used to start my computer, it would load into grub, and then it used to get me to the login screen. This is something i would like to avoid (the login screen), and start at the command prompt. My startups are minimal since the computer is always on. I was thinking of 'copying' rcS into rc2 for a normal console start and then start rc3 or rc4 or rc5 to load a desktop.

I am using Squeeze, Gnome, default installation.

Debian Multimedia :: Desktops Forgetting Backgrounds?

Feb 28, 2011

Alright, my boss has discovered an odd issue with KDE4.4 on his laptop. He downloaded a Superman wallpaper for desktop 3 (he has four desktops) using the "Get new wallpapers" functionality, and he downloaded one to his Pictures directory inside his home directory and set it as the background for desktop 1. Now if he logs off and back on, everything is fine, but if he reboots both wallpapers are lost. If he goes into the desktop settings, the wallpapers are there and selected, but they won't show up unless he clicks OK again

Debian Multimedia :: Secure Desktops And Upgrades ?

Jun 14, 2011

I've been deploying a lot of Debian based OSs for the desktops. I recommend the users to upgrade after every 2 months; however as we all know upgrades have their own flaws and issues, many times an upgrade does cause a lot of problems.

I'm deploying the testing branch of Debian, reason being hardware compatibility issues with older kernel and drivers. My main concern is security, I don't want the users to have big security venerabilities over time which's a consequence of not upgrading, but upgrading too may break the system (partially maybe...).

I know there's an option to only do security upgrades, but this will require a repository refresh... the consequence of not upgrading after a repository update is that if you install software using software center.. or even using aptitude or apt, it's bound to give a lot of dependency issues which users wont like.

This's the second question -- installing new packages with an updated repository and an older system gives issues.

Debian Multimedia :: Chrome Hangouts Shows On All Desktops

This just started happening and defeats the purpose of having multiple desktops. Both the floating icon and chat windows are displayed across all desktops. I can't tell if this is intentional or not..Or maybe there is something in gnome-shell that can remedy this?

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Virtual Desktops Back

Fedora :: Missing Where To Set Individual Virtual Desktops Wallpaper - 12 With KDE

Jan 3, 2010

I use 4 virtual desktops and under Fedora 8 and KDE was able for each to have a unique wallpaper. Since installing Fedora 12 and KDE I can't seem to find a way to get that feature. I can name each virtual desktop but not set individual wallpaper. I've searched the documents for both KDE and Fedora, they say how to set the wallpaper but not for individual desktops.

General :: Good Support To Multiple Desktops AND Multiple Monitors

Jun 4, 2010

I'm starting to have A LOT of opened windows in my machine. Sometimes within a project, I have e-mail/task management/personal e-mail/twitter, and a lot of different opened applications/terminals in my Linux workstation.Sometimes it would be interesting to have different workspaces to projects instead of this configuration I have nowadays that are classes of work (bad name, I know, but I think you got the idea).I'm starting to think about using two monitors: one with Corporate Management, Work and Personal. The second monitor is only the development state: each workspace here is about a project being worked on instead of groups of works like before. A workspace may be implementing different classes for example.

My question is: I just want to change to a second monitor using the mouse. I want to still be able to change workspaces in the same monitor using keyboard shortcuts. The keyboard shortcuts wouldn't change monitors, just worskpaces on the same monitor. All the tutorials I read (like this one) only tells how to use multiple monitors but doesn't answer my question about keyboard shortcuts.Does Linux (Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx or Debian 5.0.5 Lenny) support this envisioned setup (Different workspaces in a way that keyboard workspace switching only works in the current monitor) ? If so, how?I haven't tested this setup, that's why I'm asking. In this question the user says it works exactly how I want it to behave, can someone else confirm it?

General :: Ubuntu Distributions - Put Multiple Virtual Desktops In Panel

Oct 22, 2010

I first tried latest version 10.10 desktop. very slow booting in a Centrino CPU laptop not booting at all in a N455 CPU netbook. Tried version 10.04 which seems to work better fast booting in Centrino CPU laptop. fast booting in N455 CPU netbook. From Centrino Laptop with Windows XP on HD, once loaded Ubuntu as persistent live program from a USB drive, tried to install the program on SD memory card in PC slot. Upon request, installation made onto that memory only, not on inside HD, hence formatting only that memory. Upon completion, after removing the external memories and booting again the PC it does not boot of its own any more. XP OS damaged. I have recovered the system with a Toshiba backup CD but the HD has been formatted and all data lost. How can this happen ? I'll never try anymore to permanently install Ubuntu. I'll use it as persistent live on an external memory. I only have an old PC laptop with 128 MB RAM for further installation testing but no Ubuntu release can boot there. By the way, Lubuntu 10.10 look more fast and safe although appears to have more limitations then Ubuntu 10.10.

Debian Multimedia :: Intel HD 4600 And Two Monitors (DP And DVI)

Apr 17, 2016

I have the following situation:

- Intel HD 4600 and 2 Full-HD monitors (Dell IPS, same model)
- left DisplayPort, right DVI
- Debian stretch with Linux 4.4.0-1-amd64
- XServer X11R7.7 and Cinnamon 2.8.7

… and the following problem:

When I restart the system or login after Standby, usually (not always, but often) some strange green and red pixels appear on the monitor which is connected via DVI. I can remove them by changing the display settings and restoring the extended mode again. However, most of the time the XServer crashes by trying to enable or restore the dual monitor mode (although I’m still able to start a new instance of X from another tty). The XServer also crashes every time I try to enable the extended mode from another situation.

I’ve already tried the following:
- connecting both monitors via DP (no pixes, but also crashes)
- swapping the monitors and using different cables, assuming a hardware problem first (no change)
- VGA instead DVI (works, but inelegant).
- blacklisting i915 or using the xforcevesa boot option (neither of them works, i915 starts though)
- using the nomodeset boot option (detects only one monitor and produces a fallback in software rendering mode)

Debian Multimedia :: Wheezy - Xorg 3 Monitors And Y-splitter

Feb 26, 2015

I am pretty new to using Linux, I am currently trying to configure 3 monitor's with Xorg in Debian Wheezy. I have 2 video cards in the PC and one has a Dell Y-splitter to connect 2 monitors. 2 monitors are 1920x1080 resolution and the other is 1280x1024.

I attempted to write my own xorg.conf file, but that resulted in the machine booting to single user mode and the xorg startx error log said it could not find any devices.

When I used the xorg.conf.new generated by the "xorg -configure" command, I was able to get it to display as 3 independent screens, but there was overlap on the screens. I.E. if you moved the mouse to the right side of one monitor, it would show on the left side of another screen at the same time.

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

Identifier "Layout0"

Debian Multimedia :: Laptop With A Docking Station / How To Switch Monitors?

Feb 21, 2011

I have HP Compaq 6530b laptop running Debian Wheezy AMD64. I have a docking station with a monitor supporting 1680x1050 resolution and the laptop monitor with 1440x900. The video is integrated Intel mobile series 4.Both monitors are identified and working OK. When I use the laptop monitor standalone it runs at the native resolution. When connected to the docking station I can choose dual monitors with both using their native resolutions and the desktop spread on both of them (with the laptop monitor being primary and containing the taskbar and icons). If I choose to mirror the display it sets itself to a lower resolution of 1280x1024 that is supported by both monitors.

The problem is that I want to use one monitor at a time. If I close the lid of the laptop it turns off both monitors instead of using the docking station. When the lid is closed I want the bigger docking station monitor to be primary and working at native resolution and if I open the laptop or remove the laptop from the docking station to use the laptop monitor at it's native resolution.I had Debian Lenny I386 before and it was operating as expected but I made a clean install of Wheezy amd64 and I don't know how to configure it.I don't have xorg.conf file so I don't know where it takes the settings from.

Debian Multimedia :: Multiple Monitors On Laptop Causing System Freeze?

Mar 18, 2010

I'm having some trouble hooking my external flatscreen monitor up to my Toshiba Tecra's docking station and having Mint (or Debian) be happy with it. The laptop uses a widescreen monitor but my external is a 4x3; I wonder if this is causing problems. Of course, it may just be the Intel 82801G graphics adapter.et things up properly in the Display Preferences config window (I'm using Gnome, btw) but when I hit apply, the system locks and I have to hard boot. I've never set up a linux box with multiple monitors before, let alone multiple monitors that require different resolutions.

Debian Multimedia :: Xrandr Rotate Kills X Leaves Monitors Blank

Feb 26, 2011

I have a dual Monitor Setup, both SXGA LCDs, one rotated left. With kernels and Xservers available from debian making settings appropriate kills X and apparently leaves modesetting and keyboard missconfigured - monitors say: no signal and it is not possible to switch to any VT until sysrq-unraw (alt-print-r) is pressed, which makes the system responding to keyboard, but still leaves the screens blank. Restarting the display manager sets a working mode with both screens showing the same.

Ubuntu :: Gnome Panels On Two Monitors?

Feb 27, 2010

My graphics card is nvidia geforce 7900 GS. It has two DVI outputs, and I have one monitor plugged into each output. I am running proprietary drivers from nvidia, thus also the `nvidia-settings' tool.

I'm running with the TwinView setting, enabling nice dragging and dropping of windows between the two monitors, but here's the problem:

Only one of my two monitors have the gnome panels at the top and bottom of the screen. I would like the panels to show up on both screens.

how would I go about enabling this?

Bonus Question: Once this is enabled, if possible, would I then somehow also be able to have different virtual desktops be active on each monitor? If so, how?
