Debian Multimedia :: Compiz Doesn't Find Manageable Screen?

Oct 13, 2010

I upgrade yesterday my lenny to squeeze.

Now I have some problem with compiz. When I do compiz --replace, I get:

compiz (core) - Fatal: Software rendering detected.
compiz (core) - Error: Failed to manage screen: 0
compiz (core) - Fatal: No manageable screens found on display :0.0

Launching fallback window manager

Is it a driver problem? My ATI video card is one of them that works only with open driver and they seems corrrectly installed. glxinfo | grep render, give me a positive result.

Debian Multimedia :: NVidia+Compiz+crtl+alt+F7=blank Screen [Gnome]?

May 27, 2011

I got the nVidia driver and Compiz installed. Everything's running fine . But then I tried crtl+alt+F1 - which worked though the font was way too big - and then crtl+alt+F7 to get back to the Desktop but it went to a black screen and blinking cursor instead. I searched a bit and it seems this was a problem a few years back but nothing recent. FWIW, I don't have this problem with Hardy/nVidia/Compiz on another drive in this same machine. Is there a way to fix this?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Connect A 22'' TFT Using A DisplayPort To DVI Adaptor Plug - Doesn't Seem To Find The Screen

Jan 27, 2010

I have a Dell Latitude E6400 with Karmic (Intel graphics chip). Currently, I am trying to connect a 22'' TFT using a DisplayPort to DVI adaptor plug. Unfortunately, it doesn't even seem to find the screen. xrandr does not list it:


I know from another guy who connected an HDMI TV over DisplayPort, and this devices is listed unter "HDMI1", and not "DP1". So I am not quite sure where it would be listed even if it found the screen.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: .mp3 - Shrink .wav Files To A More Manageable Size?

Jun 2, 2010

Burned onto CD, some mp3 music...used windows.... Now when copying from the CD to computer using Ubuntu 9.1, ...althouth there is no problem with the sound and they play great.

Is there an easy way to shrink these files to a more manageable size?

Fedora :: NVidia And Compiz Installed And Working But Screen Doesn't Refresh Correctly?

Oct 30, 2010

What it does is, if you do something to change anything on the screen, for example, highlighting text, or switching from one tab/menu in an application to another. The screen doesn't show the change. The only way to SEE the change is to do something else to the screen, like grabbing and moving the application around, or scrolling the page of a website, etc. If you don't do that, you won't see what's really on the screen, but rather what WAS on the screen.

Another example:

*) say you have an application open with 3 tabs: tab1, tab2, and tab3.
*) Switch from tab1 to tab2 and you see no change on the screen.
*) Switch from tab2 to tab3 and you see tab 2 on the screen, NOT tab 3.
*) Switch from tab3 to tab 2 and you see tab3 on the screen, and NOT tab2.

Or, if you're typing in this box to make a post, and you hit ctrl+a to select all, you see no change. If you click in the box to deselect all, then it looks like you've selected all text still. The only way to see what's currently on the screen is to scroll the text box or page just a bit, or, if you're using an application, then you'd have to move it around on the screen a bit.

As i've said, the nVidia drivers are installed and working, as well as compiz, etc.

[=v=]$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RD890 Northbridge only single slot PCI-e GFX Hydra part (rev 02)
00:02.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RD890 PCI to PCI bridge (PCI express gpp port B)


Also, i did BOTH the dracut thing, and the extra kernel paramter in the grub.conf. So, nouveau is blacklisted. Oddly enough though, i do NOT have this problem when using the nouveau driver...

Also, fwiw, i think that i should mention that i'm not using the "Desktop Settings > Enable Desktop Effects" method, because i always seem to have problems with getting certain features to work, like the background for the cube skydome, etc. How i do it is that i install a package called compiz-manager, and i have it set to run at session start. This makes all of the compiz features work fine. One thing that i've noticed though, is that on my other workstation, i haven't set that up yet, and it seems that is is NOT having the same issue. While compiz-manager was running, i tried to use the "desktop settings" method, and it crapped out and reverted back to the old school desktop. I then tried it again, and it reloaded compiz, and there is no screen update issues now. So it seems that you have to have both of them running in order to get all of the compiz options to work, and not have the screen refresh issue?

Debian :: Some Windows Are Out Of Screen Using Compiz

Apr 29, 2010

I'm using debian lenny, my video card is an ATI x1300 series, I've installed compiz from the debian's repositories. All works fine except the next: Sometimes the windows appears out of screen, but this happens with windows related to the getfile function -for example: attach a file to an email, change the directory to download a file, seek some playlist file in "atun", etc.; so these windows appears in the top border of the screen, I can only watch the buttons "cancel" and "ok". I don't want to change the resolution every time this happens, so my question is: what should I change/edit to prevent this happen?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Dual Screen, Compiz + Colour Calibration With 8600M GT?

Feb 6, 2011

After a few tries, I managed to install Ubuntu on my 3rd generation Macbook Pro (MacbookPro3,1). I installed the proprietary drivers for the Nvidia graphics card and got all the other features working with the information from this page. However, I am having various problems getting the screens working as I would like. When my laptop is at my desk, it is connected to an external 24-inch monitor via DVI, however I regularly disconnect this screen when I go to uni etc.

Ideally I would like Ubuntu to do the following (all of which I can do in Windows and Mac, or the equivalent thereof): Auto-detect when the external monitor is plugged in, set that monitor as the primary screen (with gnome panel etc). And auto-detect when it is unplugged and set the laptop screen as primary.
Support moving windows between both screens Compiz on both screens Separate colour calibration on each screen So far, I have only been able to get a subset of these working at once. I got 2 working alone, without any compiz and the colour calibration only worked on the laptop screen. I got 3 and 4 working without being able to move windows between screens. I have not been able to get 1 working at all - when I disconnect the monitor, I have to tell the nvidia control panel it is gone.

Is there any way to get all four of these things working? I would be willing to sacrifice 3 if 1, 2, and 4 were all working. (I posted this thread to Apple users as well, but I figure there will be more activity here).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Maverick 10.10 Gnome - Compiz - Screen Dims If Bad Keyboard Input - Ex - Del Key

Dec 14, 2010

Running 10.10 with compiz and gnome

The whole screen goes dim for any of the below examples. running "compiz --replace" fixes it until any of the below happens again. When the screen is dim, a new window opened (ex: firefox new window or a new gnome terminal) is full brightness while the rest of the screen stays dim.

Following causes the screen to go dim: In the screen saver - hit the delete key to backspace when the password field is empty. in firefox - ^f to find on a page - start typing and as soon as the find field has text that does not exist anywhere on the page "Phrase not found" the screen dims. in gnome terminal - the profile has the terminal bell checkbox ON - hit backspace on a bash input line with no text on it.

Debian Multimedia :: Compiz Antialiasing Causes Tearing?

Jun 25, 2011

I enabled Antialiasing in nvidia-settings and added "nvidia-settings -l" in a file /etc/X11/Xsession.d/, i knew it worked because sync to vblank works with glxgears and stuff. I enabled 4x antialiasing, allow flipping and texture sharpening in nvidia settings, i also enabled all instances of sync to vblank in nvidia-settings i disabled dynamic twinview i also enabled sync to vblank in ccsm and manually set the refresh rate to 60hz the cube is smoother now, but when i move windows around, i get slight tearing at the edges, when i disable AA and restart compiz, the tearing goes away. There is no tearing when i move windows vertically: It only happens when i move horizontally:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Jockey-gtk Doesn't Find Anything?

Debian Multimedia :: Compiz Extra Plugins Broken?

Mar 16, 2010

I had a Compiz update two weeks ago, this update came from the official repository of Debian. So everyone had this update, this update did not had a positive effect. The extra plugins on both my desktop and laptop can't be enabled now. Such as Expo or the Animations. I can just use the basic stuff. There have been some partial upgrades ever since for Compiz, so I guess they are still working on it. But my question is; am I the only one?

Debian Multimedia :: Compositing Artifiacts With Compiz - Docky?

Mar 8, 2011

After setting a new sid system with Compiz, I noticed the volume display shows a brown/maroon border around the icon. I payed no real mind until I installed Docky which really shows the issue. A solid patch of that same color on either side of the dock. When using Metacity the problem is gone, so I'm thinking it's a Compiz issue or video driver issue. I have an Intel chipset.

Debian Multimedia :: Installed And Want To Install Compiz (properly)?

Mar 31, 2011

I installed debian and want to install compiz (properly).Read this thread Compiz and followed the instruction to install the packages. It mentions xorg.conf which does not exist where it tells me to look.I can type "compiz --replace" and it does do something but all the window borders disappear. I tried compiz setting manager - still same problem.And no visual effects (presumably due to missing xorg.conf)

Debian Multimedia :: Compiz Takes Away Window Buttons In Squeeze?

May 24, 2010

I`ve triple checked this and every time I run compiz any window opened has no minimise maximize or any other buttons for some reason but I don`t know why.If I exit compiz from the icon there are still no window buttons until I log out and then back in again. I can`t find this mentioned elsewhere but it`s happening every time in Squeeze AMD64 fresh installation having only downloaded AWN and compiz (tried this without AWN running and same result).It seems to have a drawing issue as if I run AWN then only three icons can show up on the dock any others are just thin white lines but I have no idea why my buttons dissappear. Anyone able to enlighten me?EDIT: Well I realised that by default the window decorations bit was not enabled, enabling it solves the first issue so the white lines instead of icons in AWN can`t be related so will look into that seperately.

Debian Multimedia :: Compiz With NVidia - White Bars And Screwed Rendering

I installed compiz with nvidia trouble is when I run compiz white bars or lines (bars) appear in open windows (icewease, gedit, etc.). They disappear after a few moment and reappear when scrolling a page. BTW everything works fine with metacity running as window manager.

Debian Multimedia :: Compiz Refuses To Auto Start Properly (with Gnome)

Apr 16, 2011

How to get compiz to auto-start. What seems to be the generally accepted method (from what a few google searches and the debian wiki tell me) of using gconf-editor and changing the window manager from 'gnome-wm' to 'compiz' in desktop > gnome > session > required_components doesn't change anything. The only method I found that did not involve using a terminal and running 'compiz --replace' every time I boot the computer was to add compiz and fusion-icon to the gnome startup apps, but this causes unwanted flickering (it starts metacity and then replaces it with compiz, ie it's simply automating what I would do with the terminal). Autostarting the fusion-icon alone does not start compiz, although it allows me to start it from it's menu if I right click the icon. Note that I sometimes use fluxbox as well, so starting it on boot isn't really an option either.

Perhaps this can be useful :
Installed: 0.8.4-4
Candidate: 0.8.4-4
Installed: 2.30.2-3

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Karmic Koala Doesn't 'find' ATI Video Card

Feb 7, 2010

I'm trying to get the screen graphics working correctly on a newly purchased ACER Aspire 7740G laptop. It has a 17.3" 16:9 screen with an ATI Radeon Mobility HD5470 512MB graphics card.

The command LSPCI in Terminal gives.....

"02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Device 68e0"

I've also uploaded /var/ log/ xorg.0.log.

In System/Preferences/Display the pink coloured monitor screen has 'UNKNOWN' displayed on it with only 3 resolutions available.

I installed the ATI Catalyst Control centre but when it initialises, it produces an error saying that there is no driver installed - I thought the XORG log shows that the driver is installed.

The command ATICONFIG in Terminal reports.........

"aticonfig: No supported adapters detected" !

Debian :: Aptitude Doesn't Find Change Logs

May 1, 2014

For some time now I've been unable to see changelogs for packages to be upgraded in Wheezy,even trying with different mirrors in sources.list all I'm getting is this:

Code: Select allaptitude changelog iceweasel
Err Changelog of iceweasel

E: Changelog download failed: 404  Not Found [IP: 80]
E: Couldn't find a changelog for iceweasel

[Code] ....

Is there maybe some specific reasons why I can't get changelogs before applying the updates? I know I can review them afterwards,it's just that I would find convenient to have a look before updating.
