Debian Multimedia :: Text Size In Tty

Sep 11, 2011

On my netbook I run crunchbang in tty (because X isn't supported) and it looks rather ugly. I have made it look fairly nice with the .bashrc but the text size is way too large. Is there anyone here that knows how to change it?Also I was wondering whether a png could be used as a tty background. Though I am possibly pushing the limitations of tty with that one lol.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Change Icons Size And Gaps Size

Oct 22, 2015

today I upgraded via official testing repository Gnome to version 3.18. After this, icons on desktop and nautilus are bigger, than before. Next thing, gaps between icons are smaller than before. I tried change theme to default (Adwaita), then run gtk-update-icon-cache, but without result.

Normal view - icons are big for this view. URL....

Small view - icons are still big for this view. URL...

How can I change icons size and gaps size? Or is it bug for this version?

Debian Multimedia :: How To Make Certain Windows Open Same Size Every Time

Jan 13, 2016

I have been using windowmaker for some time now. I really love this wm, but I've one major problem; how do I make certain windows open the same size each time I open that program? For instance, I have a certain size I prefer for Pcmanfm, Vlc, deadbeef, and geequie, but every time I run them, they open anywhere on the desktop at all sorts of sizes. I especially hate resizing a video window when the video is playing.

I can do this in fluxbox, but I have a different set of problems with that window manager, namely, I can't organize my dockapps the way I want, despite editing the slitlist and some won't work at all. While I love Openbox, I can't get the windows sized right each time, either.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Make Default Paper Size Stick In Gedit?

Jun 1, 2010

I am using the Gnome desktop in Lenny 5.03The default Gedit paper size is "US Letter", which is almost right for my HP Laserjet 4L, except that about .5 inch at the top and .25 inch at the left margin are cut off.I have defined a "Custom Size" under File -> Page Setup -> Manage Custom Sizes... with margin settings that solve the problem, but this "Custom Size" only remains the default Paper Size for printing until Gedit is closed.Using what appears to be the same gnome dialog from epiphany and evolution, the Papersize settings stick, but not from Gedit. I cannot locate any configuration file to edit, and nothing in the gconf editor seems to apply.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Render Text With Kino

Feb 11, 2015

When trying to render text with kino on amd64, I get:

Kino experienced a segmentation fault.

Dumping stack from the offending thread

Obtained 2 stack frames.

Done dumping - exiting.

I tried 'rm -rf ~/.kino-history' but this did not work.

I realized what I could have done wrong. I added as a repository and installed mythtv and avidemux. I also did an update with aptitude and an upgrade with aptitude.

Debian Multimedia :: Text Not Showing Up In Dialogs On Firefox

Jan 27, 2015

I just installed a fresh install of Debian Wheezy to an old Pentium 4 desktop computer I found on Craigslist. Everything is mostly up and running but I've been encountering an odd issue with Firefox. Whenever I type text into either a search or text dialog on Youtube, Facebook or on Duck Duck Go the text is invisible. I can highlight the text to see what I have written, but obviously this is quite annoying not to be able to view what I am typing in these places in real-time. The strange thing is that it is only these sites that I have found, everywhere else (reddit, google, Debian forums as well) can see what I am typing. I'm using Firefox 35.0 right now.

Debian Multimedia :: Scribus Crash When Editing Text

Jul 20, 2015

I use Scribus 1.4.4 without any changes from the Debian stable repository.

Each time when I edit text in the layout mode (not in the text editor) the program crashes with a "signal #11" message:

Code: Select all$ scribus
TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored.
TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored.
TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored.
TIFFFetchNormalTag: Warning, Incompatible type for "RichTIFFIPTC"; tag ignored.
Scribus Crash
Scribus crashes due to Signal #11
Calling Emergency Save
Segmentation fault

On Wheezy I was using Scribus also, but without such problems. Unfortunately I often need to use the text editing in the layout mode in order to adjust the text flow for the final layout.

Debian Multimedia :: Text Invisible On Epiphany And Iceweasel?

Jan 24, 2011

I can't find a solution for not seeing any texts on html5 web pages. I haven't found any other report about such an odd behaviour on the web so far. Even on the new W3C web page (see the screenshot below for details) I can't see any texts. They are just invisible. I can mark and copy them, but there is nothing to see on Iceweasel 3.0.6 and Epiphany 2.22.3.

Because both browsers behave the same way I guess it's not a browser issue, but something more basic. My Debian Lenny stable should be unblemished because I've never used anything else than the main sources. I can't believe, that the W3C has switched to a new standard without propper fallback-support for older browser versions...

Debian Multimedia :: Changing Default Text Editor In Xfce

May 28, 2015

I would like to set the default text editor in Xfce to gedit. The only solution that I found on Google was to right click on a given text file, select 'open with other application', sleect gedit, and make sure that the "use as default kind" button is checked. Unfortunately this only works for text files with the same extension as the original file. Is there a way of setting every text file to open with gedit by default that doesn't involve repeating this exercise for every possible text file extension (.c, .py, .h, .hs, etc.)?

Debian Multimedia :: Avconv Downsizing Resolution - Can't Read Text

Dec 3, 2015

I have recently began to use libav and had an issue I was running into.. Not exactly how to word it so I will simply state the symptoms..

Goal: Create a screencast demo on linux, play it back on a windows machine.

I am running this command to record the screen, installed libav:

avconv -f x11grab -r 25 -s 1600x900 -i :0.0 -vcodec libx264 -threads 4 /home/sysadmin/Desktop/output.avi

The issue I am running into is, when I try to play this file in Windows Media Player or even VLC on the linux host, the default size of the video results in the text in the terminal to be unreadable..

When I re-size the video, as in blow it up to full screen, I can see the text clearly..

The playback device is running something like 1280x1020 resolution. Is there a way to make it so that the text will also be readable?

Debian Multimedia :: Gnome Horizontal Bars And Text Occasionally Become Garbled

Jun 24, 2015

I've been having trouble with rendering issues in Gnome for the past few weeks, running Sid on x86_64, Occasionally Blue and Grey horizontal bars show up, they go away partially if I scroll up or down, and the bars disappear completely if the window is resized. Select characters/letters will also occasionally become garbled, if I change the font in Gnome Tweak Tool it seems to temporarily fix the issue though.

Debian Multimedia :: Scribus Crashes When Editing Text In Layout Mode

Sep 29, 2015

I use Scribus for designing leaflets and broshures. Unfortunately with the most recent version in the stable branch the program crashes each time I try to edit text in layout mode. I didn't have this problem in older versions. So I wonder if this is a bug others noticed in Scribus 1.4.4 on Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 32-bit.

For normal text editing I use the text edit mode anyway but when I try to fix line breaks it's always hard to not instantly see what I am doing. So even if I just want to insert a single character the program crashes with the following message: Scribus crashes due to Signal #11

Fedora :: How To Increase Text Size In Virtual Terminal

May 17, 2009

How do you increase the text size in the virtual terminal (the one you get to when you press ctrl+alt F1-6)? My monitor is pretty old and kind of small, so I need the bigger text size to really be able to use it at all. I tried to find the answer in google, but I couldn't find the answer. I found answers for suse and ubuntu and tried to use those. They said to edit part of the boot loader config file, but I couldn't find a similar line in the grub.conf file. And I don't want to play with it without knowing what I'm doing.

Debian Multimedia :: MPlayer Video Output In Layer Beneath Console Text

Jan 26, 2011

When I try to play a dvd and give mplayer no options, it defaults to "X11" for the video output, which maxes out the cpu. To get around this, firstly I tried to play the dvd using "cvidix" in the console.

I used the following command:
mplayer -ao alsa -vo cvidix -fs -framedrop -stop-xscreensaver -dvd-device /dev/dvd1 dvd://1
This played the dvd, but the console text was still visible over the top of the movie; i.e. mplayer was playing in the layer beneath the console text

Then I tried using xvidix in X:
mplayer -ao alsa -vo xvidix -fs -framedrop -stop-xscreensaver -dvd-device /dev/dvd1 dvd://1
This gives a green line about 5mm thick down the right side of the screen, but other than that it is ok.

Fedora :: Text Size In Console Got Sidetracked To Discussing Fbterm?

Jan 7, 2011

A thread on text size in console got sidetracked to discussing fbterm. In an effort to not (further) hijack that thread, I've started this one.[URL].. Anyway, I was asked how I got ibus-fbterm working. I only really got it working in ArchLinux, not Fedora, but I suspect if someone works enough at it, they can get it working in Fedora as well. I do a minimal installation, installing X and fluxbox or openbox. One also needs to have framebuffer working--if you have nomodeset in grub, due to, for example, using an NVidia driver, this won't work. You will have a /dev/fb0. In Arch, this is owned by root:video. When installing fbterm, there's a message that one should add themselves to the video group in order take advantage of this.

I used it with ibus-anthy. First, I made sure that that worked properly in X. I then installed fbterm and ibus-fbterm. So, to get it working, first be sure that ibus and your desired input method is working in X. Then, you have to have rights to /dev/fb0--in Arch, this was easy, making myself a member of the video group, not sure about the best way to do it in Fedora. As a temporary experiment, I just did a chmod 777 on it, which is obviously not the best solution.

Now in console, start ibus
ibus-daemon --xim
Before running fbterm, run the command
setcap 'cap_sys_tty_config+ep' /path/to/fbterm

as root or with root privilege. In Arch, the setcap command was there, in Fedora, I had to install it. I'm afraid I forget what program provided it, I had to use yum provides */setcap Then call ibus-fbterm with ibus-fbterm-launch You'll see that your console looks slightly different. Now, if it works, you should be able to hit ctl+space and then input the language of your choice (in my case Japanese.) In Fedora, it didn't work. I would hit shift space and enter characters, but nothing happened.

In Arch, it was a bit better--I'd hit ctl+space and enter something. Then, when I hit enter, I would see the results of what I'd typed. I couldn't edit it until I'd left input mode by hitting ctl+space again. That is, after hitting enter, I'd see the result of what I typed, but couldn't backspace.or otherwise go back. What it would do is, when I was trying to select kanji, by hitting the space bar after t yping the phonetic, is, after the second or third hit of the space bar, it would show the kanji choices and I could pick one.

General :: Increase Text Size In 10.04 Due To Having Large Resolution/monitors?

Apr 3, 2010

I have 24" dual monitors with 1920x1080 resolution on both of them. Consequently the text appears so small. I use the following text-intensive applications frequently:

Web browser (Google Chrome)
IDE (Komodo)
Terminal (Gnome Terminal)
Email (Thunderbird)

I can configure text size on IDE, Terminal and Email. But for Chrome, it is not a good idea to set proportional font size because often one wants to see the entire (not just proportional fonts) site to be zoomed. So I am asking: Is it possible to increase DPI in Ubuntu (much like on Windows) so as to increase the text size across all apps? OR Is it possible to set permanent 'zoom' in Google Chrome, using a third-party extension maybe?
