Debian Multimedia :: Nvidia And Xrandr Doesn't Work

Jun 3, 2011

I have problems with xrandr in a system with Nvidia GeForce 8600GT video card. I want to use xrandr to rotate the screen on the fly.

~:$ xrandr -q
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 175, current 1600 x 1200, maximum 1600 x 1200
default connected 1600x1200+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1600x1200 50.0*
1600x1024 51.0

[Code]....

I tried enable the last option, change values for xinerama and twinview, but nothing works.

Fedora :: Xrandr Doesn't Work With Kmod-nvidia-173xx

Mar 9, 2011

I work with FC14 and a AXLE nVidia GeForce FX 5500 256 MB Graphic Card AGP 8x 256MB.

Code:
[gastonv@gastonv ~]$ /sbin/lspci -v | grep nVidia

Can I change something, so I can see on TV the full hight on my monitor screen with the same nvidia drivers installed?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: XRandR Doesn't Detect DVI Output To TV?

Mar 25, 2010

I'm trying to hook up my TV to my MacBook1,1 laptop running the Lucid Lynx Beta. The TV is connected to the laptop via a mini-DVI to DVI-I adaptor, which is connected to a DVI-I to video adaptor, and this is connected to the TV via a component cable.

Under OS X, after plugging in the mini-DVI cable, the TV automatically becomes a secondary display for the laptop (extending the current screen), so from a hardware perspective everything seems ok. Under Ubuntu, plugging in the mini-DVI cable elicits no response from XRandR whatsoever (xrandr -q reports DVI1 disconnected both before and after). URandR and the regular "Detect Displays" button in the "Monitors" preference app do nothing. The laptop has an Intel GMA 950 chipset, and the Intel driver is running successfully (Compiz works fine). I have a clean xorg.conf (generated by X -configure), except for the addition of "Virtual 2048 2048" in one of the SubSections of the Screen section. I'd be happy to post the full xorg.conf if it would be useful.

So far I have tried xorg.conf tweaks, and I have followed instructions to manually tell xrandr to output to DVI1 as described in the comment by Marko Mikulicic here.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia Driver 96 Doesn't Work With Geforce4 MX-4000?

Mar 24, 2010

I've been having big problems getting 9.10 to work with a Geforce4 MX-4000 card. I know it is not a hardware problem because I've got a dual boot win xp/9.10 setup and the video card works very well under win xp. The monitor is a Samsung P2250. The issue is that the highest resolution available after installing the recommended nvidia 96 driver is 800x600, the same as that before the driver was installed. This is very frustrating because the monitor requires 1920x1080 I'm not sure whether the driver is at fault or the xorg.conf settings.

Should I try installing the nvidia site drivers? I've checked out several forum threads on xorg.conf settings but I'm really not sure how to go on this. What I need is an entry level guide to setting up xorg.conf. The manual here is not that user friendly.

Debian :: How To Set Display Resolution When Xrandr Cannot Work

Sep 19, 2015

I've just completed my first pc build, and installed Ubuntu 8.2. My build was focussed around a legacy Apple Cinema 30" display, which has 2560x1600 @ 60fps resolution. The motherboard - Gigabyte H97N-Wifi - supports that display, although the display drivers are supplied by Intel, and are therefore nonfree. On startup, my display resolution defaults to 1200x800. This is what /var/log/Xorg.0.log says about it:

Code: Select all[snip]
[     1.830] (II) intel(0): Output VGA1 has no monitor section
[     1.881] (II) intel(0): Output HDMI1 has no monitor section
[     1.882] (II) intel(0): Output HDMI2 has no monitor section
[     1.882] (II) intel(0): Output HDMI3 has no monitor section
[     1.933] (II) intel(0): EDID for output VGA1
[     1.986] (II) intel(0): EDID for output HDMI1
[     1.986] (II) intel(0): Manufacturer: APP  Model: 9232  Serial#: 33555281

[code]...

I bumped into a webpage which stated that xrandr does not work with proprietary drivers, and if that's true, I can't get it to change resolution on my screen.

Debian Multimedia :: Nvidia 260.19.12 Work With Squeeze?

Oct 28, 2010

Does this latest nVidia driver (version 260.19.12) work with the default Linux kernel in Debian Squeeze? And does it require any additional packages before installation?

(I cannot test it myself, since it's my brother who recently bought a new nVidia card)

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:

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 Multimedia :: Nvidia Module Unable To Load / Get It To Work?

Feb 19, 2011

I am running squeeze on a PC 1386 and installed nvidia by using the packages in unstable. I was able to install nvidia and there was no error until the time I started X. The error is unable to load module "nvidia" (module does not exist, 0).

I looked up the log for Xorg and it says Unloadable Module "nvidia".

I spent the entire 24 hours to fix it because this is my office computer and I practically done all the stuff found in the forums. I already did nvidia-xconfig to no avail. I even edited xorg.conf manually and still it was not up.

I have some suspects however which are:

1. Different versions between kernel and nvidia (but since I did it the debian way then I should not have any problems).

2. Nvidia-glx is unusable in Squeeze, so does it mean I go for the unstable distro?

3. Or I miss something crucial on how I installed it?

By the way, I installed Nvidia because I am using a SAMSUNG 21' LED monitor.

Debian Multimedia :: Using Xrandr To Toggle Laptop Display

Jun 3, 2015

Background: I am running Debian 8 with the Xfce DE on my Toshiba Satellite Laptop.

When at home I will connect my laptop to an external display. I did the same while I was running Ubuntu; however, with Ubuntu I could activate my laptop display by simply disconnecting the external monitor. With Debian + Xfce, unplugging the external monitor leaves my laptop screen blank.

In order to activate my laptop display, I have to open Display settings, turn on laptop display -- which still leaves my laptop screen blank -- and then switch resolution: there are two listings for 1366x768 under resolution, and only the second one restores my laptop display. Please note that if I have both displays on at the same time the size of the output on my external monitor will be reduced to about the size of my laptop's display.

I would like the create a Bash script which can automatically switch between my displays. After some Googling it seems like xrandr is the tool I need for the job. However, I have been having trouble getting it to work.

I tried the command Code: Select allxrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --primary --output HDMI1 --off. This however just turns my external display off without turning on my laptop's display. I suspect this has something to do with the fact that LVDS1 has two modes at 1366x768; perhaps only one of them can actually display? I'm not sure, but anyways here's the output of xrandr:

Code: Select allScreen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 193mm
   1366x768      59.99*+
   1360x768      59.80    59.96 
   1024x768      60.00 
   800x600       60.32    56.25 

[Code] ....

Is there a way I can specify that xrandr should use the second 1366x768 mode?

I just realized that the second mode is, in fact, 1360x768 rather than 1366x768...

The good news is that I fixed my problem. It turns out that my backlight was not turning on, giving the appearance that my laptop screen was not displaying anything.

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 Multimedia :: Jessie Gnome-xrandr No Longer Works

Updated old Eeepc 1005HAB to Jessie. Used to have a text file:

xrandr --output LVSD1 --mode 1024x600 --fb 1024x768 --panning 1024x768"

that I could run (twice in a row, it needed) to allow the scroling of the screen to see the bottom 1/4.

This no longer works.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Get Xrandr / Arandr To Detect Dual Monitor

I have a Radeon R9 graphics card from MSI with dual DVI ports and I'm trying to get xrandr/arandr to detect my dual monitors but it only detects one. I've installed all the drivers and even installed the "amdgpu" driver from the Ubuntu repository but still not detecting. What drivers am I missing?

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.

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 Multimedia :: 2560x1440 60Hz Doesn't Work Over HDMI On Testing

Aug 12, 2015

I just got a new Dell monitor (U2715H), and even with beta Nvidia driver (355.06) on Debian testing x86_64, it doesn't detect highest resolution (2560x1440) when connected over HDMI to Nvidia Geforce GT 620. I have an HDMI 2.0 compliant cable, and according to Dell reps, the monitor should support 2560x1440 over HDMI.

Some suggested using xrandr to set the video mode explicitly. I tried doing it, and first got a EDID file with nvidia-settings, and run edid-decode. Where is what I got there:

Code: Select allDetailed mode: Clock 241.500 MHz, 597 mm x 336 mm
               2560 2608 2640 2720 hborder 0
               1440 1443 1448 1481 vborder 0
               +hsync -vsync

So I used those values to make a new mode in xrandr:

Code: Select allxrandr --newmode "2560x1440_60.00"  241.50  2560 2608 2640 2720  1440 1443 1448 1481 +hsync -vsync
xrandr --addmode HDMI-0 "2560x1440_60.00"

But I got this error:

Code: Select allX Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  140 (RANDR)

Debian Multimedia :: Alsactl Restore Doesn't Work In Rc.local / Sort It?

Oct 21, 2010

Every time I boot my machine, some of the playback values in alsamixer are set to 0 and are muted, so I have no sound.

The thing is, I have tried setting these to normal levels and then run sudo alsactl store. Then, if I run sudo alsactl restore after I reboot, the sound comes back up. However, if I have alsactl restore in /etc/rc.local, it doesn't work: I still get muted sound when I reboot. I have to run sudo alsactl restore manually each time.

I have already checked whether /etc/rc.local runs at startup, and it does. Also, I know that /var/lib/alsa/asound.state contains the correct values, because when I run sudo alsactl restore, the sound returns to normal levels. So what remains is either alsactl restore doesn't work in /etc/rc/local, or something runs after it and mutes the sound.

Ubuntu :: Xserver With Nvidia Doesn't Work 10.04

Nov 13, 2010

It does this all the time whenever I reboot and I hadn't rebooted my PC in months simply because it's a GOD DAMN pain to figure this crap out. I need a REAL fix.

My computer turns off and boots, it goes directly into Recovery Menu. It refuses to boot normally. I load low graphics mode, it doesn't even let me make changes to the configuration file, OR let me have ONE session in low graphics mode. I've tried reconfiguring xserver, re-installing nvidia drivers, STILL the same effing garbage. It's starting to **** me off. I'm mostly a Linux noob, and I hate trying all these "tips" that don't work to make my stupid display work. I use gnome. Any advice, tips whatever to make this work? If you need something, I'll try my best to get it but I'm on my other computer right now so displaying my configuration files will be a pain. :/ Before I installed vesa, low graphics mode wouldn't work because it said the vesa module didn't exist and it also said no screens.
