Debian :: Xorg Configuration And Nvidia Drivers

Sep 29, 2015

While trying to solve the problem indicated in another thread [URL] .... I realised that I do not have the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

Also, if I enter the command Code: Select allsudo kate I get

Code: Select allcannot connect to X server :0

I tried logging in to another terminal (tty3) and entered

Code: Select allstartx

Kate opened normally with root permissions.

Currently I have a Nvidia card but I am using nouveau drivers.

My question is: installing the Nvidia drivers (following the guide in [URL] .....) would fix these Xorg issues?

I had troubles with nvidia drivers in other distros....

Software :: Xorg (1.10.1) Crashes With NVIDIA Drivers (275.09.07) On Debian (grml)

Jun 24, 2011

I'm using the most recent version of Xorg that is available in the Debian repository (unstable) and it flashes the NVIDIA logo and crashes the whole computer immediately after. Ctrl+Alt+F[0-9] do nothing when this happens.

I've tried reverting to an older NVIDIA driver, but they either cause the same issues (27x.y.z) or require version ignoring for ABI (26x.y.z) which leads to a segfault.

I would be fine running vesa for now, but it doesn't support 1366x768 resolution so I either have to deal with a bad resolution or have part of the screen cut off.

I am running Debian 7.0 Wheezy amd64...I installed Debian's nvidia driver earlier but I was having a few issues with OpenGL. So I removed those drivers using "apt-get remove nvidia*" and installed proprietry NVIDIA's driver from their website.Now the issue is, my apt-get/synaptic does not work anymore because it is trying to remove xserver-xorg-video-nvidia and failing to do so.

Configuration :: Newest Upgrade Of Debian Testing Breaks Nvidia And Xorg / What's Going On?

Jul 1, 2011

I just updated my Debian testing as usual (apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade), and it totally screwed up Nvidia drivers. I had to revert to integrated graphic card to start Xorg.
After that, I noticed that libgl1-nvidia-glx is missing, and when I tried to install it back, it produces the following:

Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libgl1-nvidia-glx : Depends: libgl1-nvidia-alternatives but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages

Any ideas what's going on with it?

Debian Configuration :: Login Failure After Installing Nvidia Drivers

Sep 17, 2015

I'm new to Debian and installed it with Cinnamon because I want to learn some OpenCL programming in Linux. I have a Nvidia GT 525M GPU. Once the operating system is installed, I followed [URL] ..... article to install the proprietary Nvidia drivers. As the forum suggested, instead of creating an Xorg server configuration file, I installed Bumblebee according to [URL]..... article.

But when I restarted my machine after completing all the steps when I try to log in I get the follwoing message:

"failed to load session 'cinnamon'"

I cannot login as normal user or root.

Debian Configuration :: Proprietary Nvidia Drivers Stopped Working After Upgrade

Apr 5, 2011

My GNOME system stopped using the proprietary NVIDIA drivers after the recent dist-upgrade to v6.0.1. It was working perferctly before that.

My inxi output:

When I tried to configure the screen resolution using NVIDIA X server settings, I was told to run 'nvidia-xconfig'. I ran it, restarted X but my resolution is still stuck at the maximum of 1024x768. I've tried running the above many times with the same results. I even tried aptitude reinstalling but still the same.

General :: Get Xorg Drivers To Work Right On NVidia NV18 GeForce4MX Ubuntu 10.10?

Oct 27, 2010

With Ubuntu 10.10 I cannot get a proprietary driver to work with the nVidia NV18 GeFroce4MX video on my PC. I worked fine on 10.04 LTS. Numerous posts on Ubunutu forums, but none seem to work for my PC.Only thing that seems to work in part is to use xorg 1.9 driver. However, something is not right as mouse cursor has to be positioned about one line above where you would normally click to get things to work.

Debian Multimedia :: Conflict Reappeared Between Nvidia-glx And Xorg?

Jun 19, 2011

I'm running debian 2.6.32-5-amd64 and have spent an interesting day trying to get nvidia-glx running...What appears to be happening, is that installing nvidia-glx uninstalls X.I've tried various installation methods (Synaptic, apt-get, module-assistant) and the final result seems to always be /usr/bin/X not found.Re-installing X blows away nvidia-glx.The symptoms look a lot like this post: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=45188Is it possible that this problem has returned?

Debian :: Nvidia-xconfig Installs XF86Config Instead Of Xorg.conf?

Jul 10, 2010

just did a fresh testing install using the debian installer. i have gnome and an nvidia card. i installed the nvidia driver using the debian way outlined on the wiki. then i ran nvidia-xconfig and it generated an XF86Config file instead of an xorg.conf file. everything works, but shouldnt it be an xorg.conf and if so, maybe it isnt reading the XF86Config file at all?

Debian Multimedia :: Proprietary Nvidia Driver - High CPU Usage Xorg

Aug 7, 2015

I recently switched from jessie to stretch on both i encountered a jerky ui in gnome 3. after a longer research i noticed xorg consumes over 80% of my first cpu-core while moving a window. for testing purposes i switched back to the nouveau driver and there is no high cpu usage while moving a window, also the ui is smooth.

i tried 3 different nvidia driver: the one from the debian repository, the current stable and beta driver from the nvidia site. i noticed on all 3 the same problem.

Code: Select alldaniel@Daniel-PC:~$ glxinfo | grep rendering
direct rendering: Yes
    GL_NV_path_rendering, GL_NV_pixel_data_range, GL_NV_point_sprite,
    GL_NV_path_rendering, GL_NV_pixel_data_range, GL_NV_point_sprite,
    GL_NV_path_rendering, GL_NV_pixel_buffer_object, GL_NV_polygon_mode,

xorg.log: [URL] ....

Debian Configuration :: DDC Versus Xorg.conf

Jan 18, 2011

I'm trying to get the latest Lenny running on some old hardware (a Winterm 3150se). Everything is working just fine except for two things.

When Gnome starts, it comes up at 1600x1200 resolution, which is too high for my monitor. It shows a portion of the right side of the display, If I select Screen Resolution, it gives me a few standard choices, but if I pick one, it acts like it's trying to honor my request, then comes back as 1600x1200 again.

My xorg.conf file had no references to Modeline, so I added a 1024x768 Modeline, not really understanding where the selection I was given was coming from. Anyway, it didn't help.

I can see in the log file that right after the entry about using xorg.conf, it says 'Module "ddc" already built-in', which must have something to do with it?

My hardware supports all the usual video formats, at least it does when it's running WinCE. Is there a way to force the use of xorg.conf or can someone tell me why DDC is acting like it's "read only"? Is DDC a file somewhere?

My other problem is that the Winterm refuses to not try to boot from the flash memory thumbdrive even though it's formatted as a non-bootable device - it's my SSDisk. I have to boot without the drive in, then slip in in just as the boot process exits the blue start screen. I can live with this problem, since it might be dumb hardware.

Debian Configuration :: Xorg.conf Not Used In Kernel 2.6.38?

Apr 12, 2011

I just system-upgraded (testing) to kernel 2.6.38. All seems ok, except that a few things I added to xorg.conf in the past (basically, keyboard language switch) have no effect anymore. My xorg.conf is still there, it is still the same as before, but the changes I did in XkbdLayout section have no effect. It seems xorg.conf is not used anymore. I assume new version of xorg uses a different configuration file, but I'm not sure.

Debian Configuration :: Touchpad Deactivation While Typing (without Xorg)?

May 5, 2010

I tried to inactivate my touchpad during typing in order to avoid the curser jumping all the time due to accicentally hitting the pad.
The touchpad however worked from intallation on,without problems. Even two finger scrolling is supported perfectly. All attempts that I found in searching the internet rely on changes in the xorg.conf. I found out that it is quite normal to not have this file with debian squeeze, however I didn't find a solution how to change the configurations without it.

I start my box from startx but after getting these updates, x tries to start, I see a mouse and a screen for a second and then it drops out again. I'm running the latest nvidia drivers from nvidia and have tried reinstalling them and they install fine, but no go.

My xorg.conf file is void of anything related to input devices and has been working a treat. So it would seem one of these updates has screwed evdev. I've tried reverting back to earlier versions, but I get the same issues. I was running squeeze with kernel 2.6.32-4-amd64 when all this happened. It was running like a trooper. I've now tried 2.6.32-5-amd64 but still no go.

Debian Configuration :: Profiling Xorg, In-kernel Calls?

Aug 1, 2010

I would like to profile Xorg and find out where it slows down during some particular usage.The only method that came to my mind was to starts sysprof, but that will only show that Xorg spends 85% of its time calling the kernel. Now, what I would want to know is the kernel function called and hopefully the function (or even a call stack) in Xorg which makes kernel calls.The other method I would know is callgrind, but I really don't know how to set up Xorg+KMD to start in valgrind.The problem I'm investigating is an Xorg slowdown after switching virtual terminals, bug #589348.

Debian Configuration :: Xorg Affects Console Resolution?

Nov 2, 2010

I've been scouring the internet for an answer to this problem. I am using Squeeze and have properly configured Grub2 to set my console screen resolution to 1024x768x32 (as per updating /etc/default/grub to contain 'GRUB_GFXMODE=1024x768x32' and updating /etc/grub.d/00_header to contain 'set gfxpayload=keep') and everything works wonderfully. My resolution is set as it should be. However upon installing Xorg (aptitude install xorg ratpoison), my console resolution gets changed to what appears to be 1280x1024.

I thought that this was due to xrandr, however when I issue:

# xrandr -s 1024x768

only the X resolution is changed. When I then CTRL-ALT-F1 back to the console, the resolution is still at 1280x1024 (I am aware that xrandr only affects X, but I assumed that because my console resolution was correct before installing X there might have been some correlation).

I would like for my console resolution to stay at 1024x768 as per Grub2's configuration and for X's resolution to be at 1280x1024.

PS I also noticed that prior to installing Xorg, my CPU boots up without any screen blanking (only for a second or so). However, after installing Xorg, during the boot process the screen does blank briefly. It is at that time that the resolution gets changed to the 1280x1024 setting.

Debian Hardware :: Sun Ultra 2 Xorg Configuration - Only Resolution Available Is 1152x900

Jul 6, 2011

I have setup a Sun Ultra 2 with Debian 6. It currently has dual 200MHz sparc I CPUs, 512MB RAM, and a Creator 3D 15MB video card. I have in the mail on its way to me dual 300MHz sparc II CPUs and enough RAM to max this thing out at 2GB. Anyway, I am currently having an issue configuring xorg.conf. The only resolution available to me is 1152x900 (which isnt even a supported resolution by my monitor), but Id like to use 1280x1024. I have tried for probably over a week now to no avail. I will paste my current xorg.conf file (the relevant parts), and please keep in mind that I have been messing with this file for a while so sorry if it looks bad.

Debian Installation :: NVidia Drivers Not Being Loaded

Sep 2, 2014

When I tried to rescue an old laptop that kept crashing (turned out to be HDD failure), a problem with the graphics quickly revealed itself. A graphical install was already impossible, and it looked like the image was starting halfway and wrapping around the screen, together with all kinds of artefacts. It's hard to describe, but impossible to work with. I did notice that all was okay when I booted into GParted live in the safe graphics mode (vga=normal).By the way, the system specs: AMD Turion64, NVidia 7150M.

When I had succesfully installed Debian using the normal non-graphical installer, the same effects showed up as soon as Nouveau was loaded, so I SSH'd into it to uninstall them and install the proprietary NVidia drivers. After purging nouveau and rebooting, the effects were gone! It clearly was a Nouveau issue. However, after I installed NVidia drivers successfully (X also started fine), I wanted to change the resolution using nvidia-settings which prompted:

"You do not appear to be using NVIDIA X driver. Please edit you X configuration file (just run nvidia-xconfig as root), and restart the X server."
