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:
Code: Select alldeb [arch=amd64,i386] http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/ precise steam
deb-src [arch=amd64,i386] http://repo.steampowered.com/steam/ precise steam

Debian Multimedia :: Nvidia Jessie 64bit KDE Small Menu Characters

Jan 2, 2016

I was updating my system (sudo apt-get upgrade) and had several nvidia drivers proposed as "Suggested"... I changed the options for apt-get to include the suggestions, did the upgrade, and suddenly the normal size fonts in menus, along the "task bar", inside Chrome tabs and headers, and other places became too small for my old eyes to read.

I have tried Google and found issues within Gnome (mostly fonts too large).

I have tried removing the nvidia-driver so I could go back to nouveau (which worked fine) but the next time I updated my software table (sudo apt-get update ; sudo apt-get upgrade) the nvidia drivers seemed to return, even though I had purged the nvidia that I had removed... what remains on the system is:

Code: Select allglx-alternative-nvidia                          install
libegl1-nvidia:amd64                            install
libgl1-nvidia-glx:amd64                         install
libgl1-nvidia-glx:i386                          install
libgl1-nvidia-glx-i386                          install
libgles1-nvidia:amd64                           install

[CODE]....

The motherboard is a Gigabyte AMD 9 Series FX Motherboards GA-970A-D3P; CPU is AMD FX-8350; video card is a GEForce 8400 gs; system has 32GB of 1866 RAM; a SSD for software and 750 GB spinning HD, both SATA III/6G.

I just want to be able to easily read the headings, and content in dolphin

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?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia X Server Settings Gui Won't Save

Jan 31, 2011

I have 2 monitors, a 22 inch samsung as my main and an acer as my alt. I am trying to get the samsung monitor to display, but is is disabled. So I enable it as a separate x display, then save, but when I restart x, the settings didn't save. I save the config under under /etc/X11/xorg.conf. What am I doing wrong?

Debian :: Why Won't NVIDIA Settings Save On Boot

Jan 4, 2016

I'm on a 64-bit machine running Debian 8.2 "Jessie" with MATE Desktop Environment.

I have a Geforce GTX 650ti video card.

I'm logged in as a non-superuser account named "john."

I open NVIDIA X Server Settings GUI, change my monitors' brightness from 0.000 to -0.1, go to the "nvidia-settings Configuration" section, click "Save Current Configuration" and click "Quit."

But when I reboot, the brightness is back at 0.000.

Hardware :: Nvidia - Preserve External Monitor Settings Between Reboots?

May 14, 2009

I recently installed Kubuntu 9.04 + Nvidia driver 180.44 on my Dell Latitude E6400 (1440x900) with NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M. I have the G2410 1920x1080 external monitor. The monitor is connected via VGA. I am very pleased to have the monitor running at full resolution. However, the settings don't stay intact after rebooting.

If I have the monitor connected and turn on the the laptop, only the laptop screen is active. Then, I press Fn + F8 twice to switch to the external monitor which is always reset to 1440x900. After logging in I open Nvidia settings and switch the external monitor resolution to auto. There is a warning about Meta modes and I do auto fix. Then compositing is disabled, so I open system settings, turn off then turn back on desktop effect. Also, if I want to switch back to the laptop display, it stays stuck at 1920x1080 on the laptop.

Is there any way to set this up so it is automatically detected when the external monitor is plugged in and runs at the correct resolution? With my old M1330 and Intel X3100 graphics card, it would do this and was very convenient switching back and forth between the laptop display and external monitor.

Debian Multimedia :: Nvidia Legacy 304 Under Jessie Is Broken

Feb 2, 2015

I recently updated my Debian Jessie and somehow that update broke my Debian. I have a Gtx 465 and this has been working fine under Jessie for a year.

After the update I no longer have X running. I tried removing all the Nvida stuff and reinstalling 304-legacy which did not get the Xserver back. I also tried to install Nvidia 304 driver binary but this time it refuses to compile ;( So I am out of luck at the moment.

I am runing Jessie Linux 3.18 Nvidia 465 Gtx Intel Cpu

Code: Select all     built-ins
[    41.306] (==) ModulePath set to "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"
[    41.306] (II) The server relies on udev to provide the list of input devices.
        If no devices become available, reconfigure udev or disable AutoAddDevices.

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 :: 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 :: Jessie - LXDE Doesn't Shutdown Properly

May 19, 2015

I know the problem has been partly solved in this old thread [URL] .....

Now we have Jessie as stable, yet LXDE doesn't shutdown properly:

On the same computers, Wheezy LXDE shut down very fast

I installed Jessie from the netinstall image.

On a 2007 computer, it's like the old days with a Pentium II running some version of Puppy Linux or Slitaz. The system shuts down after a while but the computer remains on.

On a 2013 laptop, I added the line init=/bin/systemd in the Grub default file as advised on the old thread above. The laptop shuts down after a while, the system first, then the hard disk goes to sleep, then all the leds are off.

If I run the magic command, the computer shutdowns in a breeze, perhaps even quicker than good old Wheezy:

Code: Select all# systemctl poweroff

Now, is this still a systemd bug? Doesn't look like it since the systemctl command works. Is it an LXDE bug? Looks like it in a way - if the LXDE shutdown button enabled the systemctl poweroff command, I suppose the button would work?

Is there a way to make the LXDE shutdown button run the systemctl poweroff command?

I'm glad Wheezy is still with us because I wouldn't install Jessie for newbies — they'd think shutdown (through clicking on a button) is even worse than in Windows.

In the indicator-applet-complete, I want the date and day to be displayed with the time. I open the Time & Date Settings, tick off the appropriate boxes, and nothing changes. The same is true for the Bluetooth icon. I can't remove the bluetooth icon from the indicator applet.It seems like a general problem with the indicator applet in that it doesn't save my settings.

Debian :: Change Settings For Games In Jessie

Jan 15, 2016

I am currently running Jessie (Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie))

On occasion I like to play Tetravex, Sudoku, etc. I also like to play it at different levels of difficulty and complexity. It used to be very easy to change these levels, but now it appears to be impossible because Jessie offers me the possibility to close the game, move it to another workspace or minimize/maximize/resize/etc it.

But change the level of difficulty?

Nope, not a chance. That option, my dear fellow, is no longer available.

Why? Who decided to change the user interface to such an extent that simple and basic operations are no longer available? Did a MS or Mac mole infiltrate the Debian project team?

Debian Installation :: Deb6, 'turn On' Nvidia Settings / Nvidia's Latest 270.xx With Squeeze?

Jun 9, 2011

Using online Debian guide, installed latest nvidia-current, glx etc which seems to be 195.xx Machine boots to GUI but monitor setting menu doesnt respond nor is there an nvidia specific one. xorg.conf shows 'nvidia' driver but I suspect I am still on 'nouveau' since the synapatic package manager doesn't show an nvidia xserver-xorg-video choice.

Second question, any trailheads for using wheezy based drivers (i.e. nvidia's latest 270.xx) with squeeze?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Save Screen Resolution Wit Nvidia Driver

Jan 27, 2010

Since I upgraded to 9.04 a while back I have had this annoying screen resolution issue. Every time I log into my Ubuntu system the screen resolution defaults to 1280x1024. My preferred desktop resolution is normally set at 1680x1050. So each time I log in I have to open the Nvidia control panel and manually set the screen resolution to 1680x1050. Even after logging out it will still go right back to 1280x1024 when I log back in.

But the funny this is I am almost positive the login screen resolution is 1680x1050 because the picture is crisp unlike the blurry and distorted picture at 1028x1024. I have tried everything from manually editing the x.org conf file to running the Nvidia control panel as root. Nothing saves my preferred resolution of 1680x1050. My Nvidia driver is version 190.42 and Ubuntu version is 9.04. The monitor is an ASUS VW192T+ which is detected by the Nvidia driver.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get The System To Save Resolution - Nvidia Card

Jan 30, 2011

Running Ubuntu 10.04 with an Acer wide monitor, 1600x900. The graphics card is a Gefoce 6200. When I run nvidia-settings I can select 1600-900 and it looks fine. I can "Save to X configuration file" and get no errors. However if I log out and back in, the resolution changes to 1360x768 which causes the tool bar at the top to be mostly somewhere to the left of and above the monitor. It makes life rather difficult when you can't get to the Applications and Places menus. I also tried nvidia-configure but it created essentially the same xorg.conf file.

This is the xorg.conf file generated:

Quote:

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig: version 1.0 (buildmeister@builder75) Sun Nov 8 21:50:38 PST 2009
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildd@palmer) Fri Apr 9 10:35:18 UTC 2010

[Code]....

1600x900 is the native mode of this monitor so the driver shouldn't be getting any errors if it trys to set that resolution.
