I assembled a small multimedia center based on XBMC Live (Ubuntu). And cannot configure bluetooth. In older versions of bluez was hcid.conf file, through which I can set options iscan, pscan and lm (link mode). In new versions of bluez 4.xx instead of this file is used main.conf and these parameters there is not provided. How apply these settings to the bluetooth adapter at system startup and when I connect the adapter to the usb port? In general, the system behaves is not clear. Sometimes the adapter after the system is turned on, and sometimes it turns off.
In all previous versions of KDE I had Console8x16 set as KDE font for all cases (Settings->Appearance->Fonts). After tonight upgrade, this (only!) font is not working. I can see it in font manager, I can set it in ...Appearance->Fonts, but actually remains default font. Two of about 30 attempts somehow (can not reproduce) succeeded to set "console 12" font, but it disappeared after restart.
1. What can be the problem in 4.4? 2. In /usr/share/fonts tere are 3 files named console8x16.pcf, console8x8.pcf and console9x15.pcf, but in the font list in Appearance->Fonts I can see only 2 - one named "Console" (seems to be 8x16 and "console" (8x8). File 9x15 does not appear at all. Why?
Last results of attempts: cannot use console font in part of areas, while part works OK. For example: kdevelop editor, kmail message body text works OK. But kmail other parts - does not. The most interesting is that although setting the kmail body message text to console displays the message body text correctly (with console font), but the example message in "Configure kmail" dialogue "The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog" is displayed in the default font, as if there is no console font!
How everybody can view, the fonts is exaggeration big in my TV 32", this problem occurs in Gtk, because Opera look good and is Qt , I try changed Font Size, but fix one, other thing is damaged. also I try
When trying to make my Xfce desktop in Debian 7 (wheezy) look the same way as in Xubuntu 12.04 (precise), I am able to (by copying some files from Xubuntu packages) make the fonts render the same way, set up the same desktop and icon themes etc and make everything look identical, with the exception of the fonts...
Since that, if I choose the font "Sans 10" for my desktop, in Debian - with all the same anti-aliasing options, and such, that I use in Xubuntu - the text looks smaller, everywhere, compared to Xubuntu.
So... How come this happens, if I have chosen the same font "Sans" with the same size "10"?
Below, are the different results, depending on the OS in question.
In Debian Xfce, I get this:
While, in Xubuntu, I get this:
I remember this same thing happening, once, when I was experimenting with setting up an Openbox desktop environment, on top of an Ubuntu 12.04 command line install, where, if I used LightDM, as the login manager, I would observe this same font size "reduction" (in, at least, some of the applications), with the theme I was trying to set up, while, if I used GDM, as the login manager, I would not observe this same font size reduction. (And, so, it seemed that some GTK library(?), being used by the GDM, prevented this from happening(?)...)
Also, I read somewhere, on the Internet, that Xubuntu builds Xfce on top of GNOME(?) (libraries, I guess)...
Could it be that, by installing some GTK library, the fonts will "return" to normal size? Or, do I have to configure something else, somewhere?
(P.S. - I've also tried choosing the size "11", in Debian Xfce - in case it's a matter of different values used, for the numbers, in each OS - but, if I do so, it only makes the text bigger than in Xubuntu, with the size "10"...)
I'm running a Debian Wheezy system. There are a lot of characters I want to use from the U+1F*** set of characters. But when I use them or look them up in the character map, all I see is the square with the code inside. Is there some font package I can install from the repository that has better support for these characters?
E.g., when I am instant messaging my girlfriend, I like to use the HEAVY BLACK HEART character (❤, U+2764). But there are a whole bunch of other "romantic" characters that are listed but not actually displaying for me, like the KISS MARK (U+1F48B), which I would like to use. These characters apparently show up on her system, which is an android phone.
I use the default Inkscape 0.48.5 r10040 on the default 32 bit Debian Jessie with Gnome 3.14.1 and since I installed it I can't apply some font cuts which actually do work in other applications and did work on previous versions of Debian/Inkscape.
The cuts do show up as options in the "font/style" selection menu and i can use different versions from for example "Roboto" but if I - for example - select to use the "Semi-Light" variant of Roboto it just doesn't get applied after all. (I know that many fonts do not have any font variations and Inkscape confusingly just shows at least "italic" and "bold" as options in the style list anyway.) In this case the font variant is actually there, I can use the same font variants in Gimp and I was able to use it in previous versions of Debian/Inkscape, but not now.But I noticed instabilities in Gimp, Inkscape and Scribus lately. Gimp just consistatly vanishes when I try to scroll through the font selection menu and Scribus takes ages to load and does crush from time to time without any clear pattern to me. I don't think this is caused by Roboto itself since I used it in the past without such problems.
Should I remove all custom fonts and try if everything works ok again or does this approach sound rather foolish to you? Unfortunately I need most of the additional fonts I installed for different projects and I had them on my system in the past also without having such issues. I could however remove all custom fonts and include only those absolutely needed one by one ...
I've a high resolution monitor(2560x1440) on my laptop running Debian testing and would like to change the font size in X. I manage to change most of the fonts to a readable size through the openbox configuration manager. But the font in my login window and for example in apps like vlc is still very tiny. How this could be changed ....
I'm using Debian Testing (Stretch, right now), and for a little while, a couple of months or so, QtCurve wasn't working properly (and lately, not at all) on GTK2.
After quite a lot of frustrated attempts, I think i fixed it in a way that's probably not recommended at all. I copied the file libqtcurve.so from Wheezy's version of gtk2-engines-qtcurve, and used it instead. It "just worked".
So, experiencing problems with QtCurve on GTK (most noticeably, being unable to set fonts and icon themes for GTK2 apps), or was it just an oddity of my install? My installs are often not all that standard, so I'm never sure. I'm asking because I have to figure out lots of things if I'm to make a bug report, and the bug may not even really exist . I think I'll even check before if the Testing package from another server works, maybe that's the problem.
I just found that this fix/version makes inkscape crash, would probably do the same to some other stuff -- newer versions (even with proper full package install) also have the same effect, except for that latest one, that doesn't seem to work in GTK2.
It's reported as a bug in Ubuntu. The "correct"/better fix seems to be commenting the font-related lines in /usr/share/themes/QtCurve/gtk-2.0/kdeglobals (Not to be confused with KDE's own file of the same name) on the newer package. That doesn't seem to make inkscape crash.
The same file also set the icon theme on GTK2 as Oxygen, commenting the icon line on the same file doesn't fix it, the correct theme apparently has to be spelled out, it seems it has to be for all users using any QtCurve theme, and GUI tools to change the icon theme won't work (but I haven't really tested the "native GTK" ones).
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 C en_US.utf8 hi_IN hi_IN.utf8 POSIX ur_PK ur_PK.utf8
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?).
I'm using Robolinux Cinnamon which is Debian 8.2 (fantasic OS btw). I usually use a blank, black wallpaper but the default color of the icon font is black. I googled this question for about an hour before I came here. How to change the icon font color on the desktop to white?
I'm trying to upgrade a headless terminal server like box from Etch to Lenny. Users log in to this box using a GoGlobal client and use applications such as OpenOffice and Iceweasel. Because of the ended support for Etch we want to upgrade this machine to Debian Lenny as soon as possible and in order to save time we decided to dist-upgrade instead of installing a new machine. I've done this upgrade in a test environment and everything is working as expected except for OpenOffice, which seems broken after the upgrade:
The problem seems to be caused by the anti aliasing features of OpenOffice and disabling these features in the options panel (Extra -> Options -> OpenOffice.org View -> Screen font anti aliasing) fixes the UI somewhat:
However, as can be seen in the last screenshot, disabling anti aliasing makes the whole thing look terrible. I've searches the net for solutions such as this one but so far I've not been able to fix this. Is there anyone who can point me towards what has changed in the way fonts are rendered since Lenny and what might cause this breakage for OpenOffice? Other applications such as Iceweasel work perfectly and look better then before.
I downloaded a lot of gtk2 themes based on the Murrine engine (the 0.90.3-2 version) but they don't work. When I select them with Lxapperance, it returns something like "gtkrc:91: error: unexpected identifier `gradient_colors', expected character `}'" for each line.
I notice that on DistroWatch, the descriptions include "debian based", "arch based", etc. For the newbie, is there any practical difference between the different bases, or is it a Coke vs Pepsi type question?
Is a distro based on Debian say, easier for a newbie to learn or work with than say one that is FreeBSD based?
I have setup SFTP and it is running without any problems. The problem I have is finding a client that supports key based logins through Linux. I do not want user based logins available and so far the solution works through my Windows machines using WinSCP. The only client I have found for Linux seems to be FileZilla but I have to convert my private key to the FileZilla format which removes the passphrase leaving it nice and insecure.
I want to follow the instructions to configure a PXE server based on Fedora, the instructions written in 2005, suggests Fedora Core 4. I need to have; tftp-server, dhcp, httpd, syslinux. Which I understand can be install subsequently but are included in FC4.
I cannot find a link to FC4, I guess it's out of date now and no longer available, which server should I now download
When I first encountered this problem, I though it would be a simple solution, but i must just be missing something obvious.i have a few name based hosts configured in apache.when i go to "www.adomainname.com" i get the first website on this list, not "adomainname.com", as i would like. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?here is the relevant part of my config files:
I have been trying to install Squeeze from the 6.0.1a KDE CD-1 plus the Debian repos. I just cannot get X to work. I get similar bad results to those mentioned by other users having similar problems, but none of the suggested fixes works.
Basic hardware information: Desktop PC, whole 40 GB disk used for install Graphics card: none Video controller on motherboard: VIA Technologies S3 UniChrome VGA controller (about 8 years old) Monitor: Samsung Syncmaster 1280 x 1024 (about 8 years old)
Some things I've already tried: in rescue mode, as root, in /etc/X11X -configuremove file to /etc/X11/xorg.conf basically everything mentioned in threads in past two months regarding users who cannot get X to work reinstalling 100x with every choice for the installer I can think of
What happens: when doing the install, contrary to expectation, I am never prompted for any of the hardware information which the documentation at debian.org says I should have on hand (is that a good sign or a bad sign?)
No matter how I try to do the install,I always seem to get a nongraphical installation, so I try this: as root:apt-get install xorg in /etc/X11X -configthen move generated file (which looks like X didn't try to create an actual configuration file) to /etc/X11/xorg.config as non-root user:startx I get black screen (or a tiny tiny konsole at upper left) and system hangs
How can I tell whether this an X misconfiguration? How can I fix it? How can I tell whether I simply need a driver? Where do I look? How can I tell whether my hardware is simply incompatible with Squeeze? What do I need to replace? Do I need to get a new monitor in order to use Squeeze? Do I need to buy a new motherboard with newer video controller? Do I need to buy a graphics card? Which?
What package provides the utility found in the gnome-control-center for changing the notification themes? There is a gconf key that says slider, so it's possible it can be changed there, but I'm not certain what themes are available/valid
This problem has lasted for several months, but I can't find anything like bug report in debian related website.
Basically my problem is after genome-terminal (version 184.108.40.206) is launched, I want to change profile setting such as font, color, etc. However, when I click the button `Edit > Profiles > Edit`, nothing happens (no dialogue pop up). `Edit > Profiles > New` And `Edit > Profiles > Delete` function correctly.
I have a very old Pentium 3 that don`t have USB or PS2 suport. I need to configure a serial mouse. I did it on debian etch editing xorg.conf. I chage the mouse protocol to "Microsoft" and it works normaly. But on squeeze it does not exist!
