Debian Multimedia :: Unable To Start Second X Server

Nov 9, 2015

I was able to start multiple X servers before. Now after the upgrade to rootless X, I had to add myself to the "input" group to be able to start X, but I'm unable to start 2nd X on a different vt.

Here are the errors and warnings I'm seeing:

Code: Select all[114940.404] (EE) /dev/dri/card0: failed to set DRM interface version 1.4: Permission denied

I'm on Debian stretch/sid.

Debian Multimedia :: Optirun Cannot Start X Server

Dec 30, 2015

I have been using bumblebee on my Optimus Laptop for a long time.I think I have this problem since the last Xorg upgrade, some months ago. The upgrade notes warned that Xorg now runs on userspace, and that configuration files are now read from the user (although I haven't noticed that).Then optirun ceased to work. As I'm using sid, I'm used to things being broken sometimes, so I simply let it go waiting for an upgrade that would fix it. Since this upgrade (either to Xorg or to bumblebee) is not coming, I have searched on the Internet, and I'm surprised that many people have had problems with bumblebee, but no one seems to be having the same exact error (see below).

I have tried everything (everything my limited knowledge and my internet searches allow me). I have tried with nvidia and nouveau drivers, but I get more or less the same result.

Code: Select all$ sudo systemctl status bumblebeed
● bumblebeed.service - Bumblebee C Daemon
   Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/bumblebeed.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
   Active: active (running) since mié 2015-12-30 09:30:34 CET; 20min ago

It seems Xorg is failing but is not giving any information about the failure, no message, which is different to the problems I have found in the Web.
I have purged bumblebee packages to assure I'm using default configuration files. I have added rcutree.rcu_idle_gp_delay=1 to GRUB_ CMDLINE_ LINUX_ DEFAULT as instructed on some howtos.

Debian Multimedia :: Tightvnc Server And Can't Start GUI Apps As Root

Feb 12, 2015

I have headless debian as a server which i use over tightvnc server running on it. Vnc works fine but I can't for example run sudo mousepad or any other gui app from terminal, it says something about not having the rights to open it as root. I understand this has something to do with security, but my computers are behind nat so the vnc server can only be connected inside my lan so i don't mind.

Debian :: Unable To Start / Stop Lightdm

Apr 4, 2016

I'm running Debian 8.4 on a Lenovo W500 laptop and I recently upgraded from kernel version 3.2.0-4 to 3.16.0-4. Since then I encounter issues with lightdm (I suppose) which manifest themselves in two different scenarios:

1) scenario 1: lightdm fails to start.Instead of showing the graphical login screen, the system boots into terminal. Lightdm seems to be running, but I can't enter the X-Session (Alt+Ctrl+F7 doesn't work), nor can I restart the lightdm via

Code: Select all# service lightdm stop
# service lightdm start

dmesg shows the following (I've only pasted the end of dmesg):
Code: Select all[  240.100071] INFO: task kworker/0:2:39 blocked for more than 120 seconds.
[  240.106512]       Not tainted 3.16.0-4-amd64 #1

[  240.119494] kworker/0:2     D ffff880155155a48     0    39      2 0x00000000


and /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log shows errors of type
Code: Select allGtk-CRITICAL: gtk_container_foreach: assertion 'GTK_IS_CONTAINER (container)' failed

when I then try to shutdown via
Code: Select all# shutdown -h now

the OS gets stuck on a message of the form
Code: Select allirq 17: nobody cared

and eventually I have to force a shutdown by holding the poweroff button.scenario 2: lightdm starts, but can't be stopped/In this case I can login and use the system as usual, but when I try to shutdown either via # shutdown -h now, or via the GUI or the power button, the system gets stuck and I have to force a shutdown by holding the poweroff button.It seems that people had similar issues on other distros (see e.g.: URL... but there doesn't seem to be a good fix so far. I can for now solve the issue by downgrading the kernel to 3.2.0-4, but I was wondering if there is a permanent fix.

Server :: Unable To Start Apache - No Listening Sockets Available

Apr 29, 2011

I am very new (since yesterday) to Linux also new to web server setup. I have installed all LAMP components, including SSL as described here: [URL]. I have added LISTEN 443 Wanted to restart the apache server -> no success ! stopped it, now doesn't start at all:

Warning msg=>
(98)Address already in use: make_sock: could not bind to address no listening sockets available, shutting down . .

I tested Apache and my PHP earlier and it worked. Now after SSL and FTP installation it doesn't work anymore! Also I am wondering about my server name, it is the set IP of the web server, surly i should change that? Only used link for SSL set-up, used diff links for apache php etc (also have java JRE installed as I will need that later for my app) also have GNOME available, but prefer command line.

Debian Multimedia :: KDE Will Not Start

Feb 17, 2015

When I login in the kde login in screen starts, but then I hear a beep and it freezes. If I hit ctrl-alt-f2 and log in and then type startx, a blinking curser appears and nothing happens.I am trying to set up VirtualBox to run Windows 7 and I am having trouble getting some usb devices to be recognized in Windows. I tryed following the advice of this link URL...After I added the group vboxusers to my user account and restarted the computer, this problem started.

I ran the command Code: Select alldeluser jrchristophel vboxusers, and I get the response back Code: Select allyou may not remove the user from their primary group.

The other things I did that might have caused this problem was that I installed virtual guest additions for VirtualBox, and one other addition that was needed for the USB functionality with in VirtualBox. I can't remember the name of that which I installed.I have looked at some of the logs in /var/logs.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Start X On Old Dell

Dec 29, 2010

My room mate is trying to use an old Dell he has as a print server. After much twisting his arm, I was able to convince him to go with Debian, which, I would install. I used a 5.0.4 Net Install CD I had, and included Desktop Environment (he needs a GUI), and Print Server. Basically, as usually happens when I install Debian, I am having trouble getting X to work. Heres what the errors look like after X fails:

Ring End Space: 24 wanted 32

Fatal server error: lockup

Waiting for X server to begin accepting connections giving up.

Debian Multimedia :: Cannot Get X To Start (or Even To Configure)

Nov 21, 2010

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 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?

Debian Multimedia :: LibreOffice Crashes On Start-up

Sep 1, 2015

I installed libreoffice from the official Debian repository. Even after a clean installation of Debian Jessie, Libreoffice started and ran only once. After that, when LO was started, it gave an error message: "Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module".I installed "canberra-gtk-module." From then on, LO never gave any error message in terminal. The banner flashes across the screen for a moment and then disappears.

I deleted ~/.config/libreoffice folder and started LO again. Each time the command "libreoffice" is run in terminal, it creates the configuration files in ~/.config folder.I created a new user to check if LO would run. It does run when a new user account is created. But the problem keeps coming back.

After uninstalling libreoffice, I tried installing openoffice 4. Even openoffice 4 wouldn't start. The banner would just appear for a moment.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Start Openbox - No Errors

Jan 24, 2016

I asked the question on LQ, but since activity related to Debian there is smaller, it is here.

I can't start Openbox, using xinit or startx. I have a warning when using xinit:

Code: Select all***** Imlib2 Developer Warning ***** :

This program is calling the Imlib call:

    With the parameter:
    being NULL. Please fix your program.

I don't have dbus, display managers, X is started on tty3 because I reduced the number of ttys. In xinitrc there is

Code: Select allexec openbox-session

I see a cursor appearing for a second, but then the screen goes back to tty.

The problem is new; I'd been using Openbox for a couple of months back then, and it was fine.

System is Unstable.

Debian Multimedia :: No Programs Start In Gnome?

Jul 1, 2010

Linux noob here with a very fresh Debian 5.04 install. Not sure if this is the correct board for this but here goes;*No* programs start in X. Terminal, System Monitor, Epiphany, Gedit, Synaptic Package Manager... They all fail to start.The programs try to start for 15 seconds after which they give up. For example, if I press the Epiphany-icon in the panel I see "Starting Epiphany We..." in the lower-left corner and the mouse cursor changes to the loading animation for 15 seconds but then after that nothing happens and the "Starting Epiphany We..."-icon disappears. I have two users (plus root of course) and the same thing happens with both accounts.

I can start the icons I have on my desktop (Computer, Home folder, Trash and Downloads) and I can Lock the screen/log off/shut down but that's about it. Oh and one more thing; sometimes when I log in everything works just fine, so this whole thing seems a bit random.

Debian Multimedia :: Blender Won't Start / Get It To Work?

When i run glxinfo or glxgears I get a segmentation fault as well which makes me think I have an issue with my hardware acceleration.

I am really suck when it comes to trying to diagnose the problem any further and would appreciate any help you guys have. My system is up to date and Blender has worked before on an almost identical setup (i reinstall debian a while back, may have been using a slightly older kernel then).

I'd like to bash it -- sorry but I'm really really annoyed -- to put it softly.

I'd like to know why it's not working as smoothly --

Currently I need to $sudo cupsd to make printing work every time I power on this computer.
