I use LXDE for about 2 days now, having several issues, but most important, its the only DE that hangs up itself every 10-60 minutes.
All i do is surf the web, watch a movie or listen music (mp3). I have no idea what could it cause, i dont get a error message.
Its acting like, do you know the old hughe black vynil long play discs? when they had a scratch, they were repeating it over and over and over and over and over and over... Well its kinda the same, just that it repeats either the music or the video (just the audio), mouse is frozen, and nothing but power shutdown works anymore.
After the 3 other DE's i was using, i kinda like LXDE the most, but that bug (?) is pretty annoying.
After Gnome logon it may hangs in any moment (window scroll, app start, opening url)
If sound was playing in that moment it continuously repeats last sample (about 1 second length), but do not respond to mouse move/click or keyboard. If to let it stay in this state nothing change - sound sample still repeats and no response to input. I need to reboot it by reset button. Sometime when I press reset nothing happen then after couple of seconds computer turns off, after 1-2 sec on and then starts booting.
During first 15-20 minutes after booting it may hangs multiple times but after that it works without problems.
Tried do not logon 20 minutes after boot - do not help, it hangs anyway. Only helps logon and do nothing for awhile.
This behavior have started after F12 installation. F13 installation changed nothing, only F11 worked perfectly.
I have installed Fedora 12 as a workstation successfully, my hardware specification is Pentium 4 system with 2.8 GHz Processor having 512 MB Ram, which has 80 GB HDD, the primary partition where fedora 12 is installed is 20 GB, in primary part my root part is 5 GB, having 2 GB Swap part, also has Home partition which has 12 GB.
The system installed in KDE mode and works nicely, but after 30 or 40 minutes, it is hanged. I don't know why, then I restart the system to resolve it.
Peacekeeper is the web browser benchmark from Futuremark Corporation. In contrast to Iceweasel 5.0 on my laptop, my installed Chromium 6.0 does not pass this benchmark (it hangs after about 2-3 minutes). Here is the link to Peacekeeper: [URL]
I have 10:10 x64 installed on a 1.5 TB drive connected to an Asus motherboard with with 4GB of DDR rRAM and on-board ATi HD4200 compliant graphics. Everything I have installed runs except that the system as a whole freezes from time to time for periods of around five minutes while the disk drive lamp shows that it is active. Until I find a solution I will be using my backup system.
I have tried recompiling kernels but they never generate an initrd image file and thus will not boot!
Please help me to resolve th problem stated underneath:My computer(P4, 512MB RAM) running Ubuntu 10.04 hangs unexpectedly after certain period of inactivity (4-5 minutes maybe). I checked power management settings and all power saving options are set to off.The screen says Checking battery state comes for a while... and then black screen with stripes comes. Monitor also goes off for say a sec or two.Then monitor goes 'on' on its own .This process of Black screen with stripes, monitor off and on goes on until I "Reboot"
I installed lxde, but my wireless internet doesn't work. I can switch back to gnome and it works perfectly. I tried wicd and manually connecting with the command line. Both fail while trying to get an ip.
I'm using mencoder to capture audio from a Encore ENLTV-FM3 video capture device. I have recently noticed that, since one week ago, when the machine was forcibly restarted due to a power outage, all recordings are slightly pitched, they play back slower than they should.
I narrowed down the problem to the following command line:
$ time mencoder -really-quiet -tv driver=v4l2:device=/dev/video1:chanlist=us-cable:audiorate=32000:alsa:adevice=hw.1:input=0:amode=1:normid=11 -endpos 00:10:00 -ovc copy -oac pcm -of rawaudio -o test-32000.wav tv://69 real 9m54.886s user 0m5.536s sys 0m1.740s $ ls -l test-32000.wav -rw-r--r--@ 1 martin martin 76800000 Mar 15 17:20 test-32000.wav
Somehow, mencode managed to gather precisely 10 minutes worth of raw audio in 9m 55s. That's not physically possible, unless the capture device's A/D converters are "overclocked". I can't think of any other explanation besides hardware failure. Can that be? Could it be that something got burnt during the power outage and now the capture device's internal clock went nuts?
Since the machine's restart, I've also noticed dmesg is flooded with entries like this:
CE: hpet increased min_delta_ns to XXX nsec
Which seem to indicate that the computer's high precision event timer is somehow out of sync. Does this have to do with the audio issue? Can it be that the audio converter's sample rate is linked to the HPET? I'm totally lost here. Has anyone bumped into something similar?
Lubuntu is nice - but it seems the LXDE version is not as up to date as Fedora LXDE Spin or even Debian squeeze with LXDE installed. I do like Chromium on Lubuntu though... its faster and a nice touch. I am looking for a lightweight 64-bit distribution for my main laptop (it is by no means "old" or "low spec" but I like that Lubuntu starts up in like 2 secs).
LXDE version seems not to be recent (esp in 10.04 version which seems to work more stably for me - with Nvidia drivers etc)64 bit install is currently a pain - requires first install of minimal CD or alternate CD both of which required wired Ethernet, then install of lubuntu from PPA. Native 64-bit support would be nice. Linux Mint LXDE, for example, is also only 32-bit.
I've tried to do a clean install of F10 on one of my pcs. I deselected Gnome and only selected LXDE. But after the installation-proces finished and I did a reboot, I only got a commandline in which I only was able to log into as root. No LXDE. Nor did the command "startx" start X. to my surprise. On another pc I did an install of F10 with Gnome and later on I've installed LXDE. After a reboot I was able to select LXDE in gdm. But how can I get a clean install of F10 with only LXDE? What am I missing here?
I use Eclipse IDE and there is a handy binding that I use when I'm running Eclipse on Windows that doesn't work under Openbox. Ctrl-Alt-Up causes a line to be duplicated. I've tried everything to have this key sequenced passed to Eclipse under Openbox, but it seems Openbox is taking itI've tried commenting out all the C-A-Up settings in rc.xml, but that doesn't seem to work. How to configure Openbox (or whomever) to pass the sequence on to the application?
I installed fedora 14 lxde saturday, loaded about 1/2 the items from the unofficial fedora faq, and see videos on ....., but there is no sound. However, the sound works fine on sabayon lxde.# alsamixer -c 0 -- shows the sound settings are turned up. What can I do to get the sound working?
opera-11.11-2109.i386.rpm From opera's webpage. Installed with double-click. Asked for root permissions... the standard way of installing. Neither CLI 'opera' nor the GUI's menu -> internet -> opera does anything!
What is difference between fedora 15 GNOME and fedora 15 LXDE except their interface.(I think their is no difference except their interface). GNOME 3 interface is much better than LXDE but it uses a lot of system resources. If I have F15 GNOME then can i switch from GNOME to LXDE without reinstalling it if yes then how?
Tried an install of Fedora 15 LXDE. Says I need 1100 MB of RAM to install and only have 1000 MB of RAM. So will not install. First time I ever needed over 1GB of RAM on my netbook, especially LXDE which should run on 512 MB, install and everything.
I have F15 (gnome 3 version) and I installed lxde (yum install @lxde-desktop), but in lxde don't show window frames, where appear the application title, and minimize, maximize and close buttons. gdm allows start in openbox directly and I haven't the issue, but isn't comfortable work so. What I can do?
I'm using Fedora 12 with LXDE (sudo yum groupinstall LXDE if you want to try it), and while using LXDE rather than GNOME, the power button doesn't do anything. I found a possible solution here: [URL] but I have no /etc/acpi/ folder. Why is that? Package acpid is needed.
I tried installing Fedora 15 Gnome on my 8 year old laptop, but it didn't work so well since Gnome 3 couldn't start due to my graphics adapter (although it worked fine in Fedora 14), so I tried installing Fedora 15 LXDE and had much better results. Any way, after running yum update, I tried to install Google Chrome since I prefer it over FireFox, but I noticed that I didn't have the opton to automatically install it with a package manager, only download it. Once downloaded, I tried to open it via the GUI and it brought up a screen asking me what application I wanted to use to open the rpm. It didn't even know how to install a rpm!! I then tried to install it via the command line, but it failed because the package was dependent on others. After looking around in the Administration menu, there does not seem to be any package manager installed. How can this be? I've used many different versions of Linux before, but none that didn't have a package manager or didn't know how to install it's own native binaries. I don't get it.
My previous laptop died (HD failure, etc.) so I just put F15/LXDE on a Dell Latitude D610. All updates applied. I inserted my Canon Powershot A480 in a USB port, but o/s doesn't seem to react. No desktop icon, no FileManager presence, nothing in /media folder. Other USB devices are detected, mounted and recognized (external HD, memory stick, etc.), but not the camera. what I should do to get the camera recognized?
Edit: DigiKam and Digikam libs are installed and system was rebooted. Still no camera detection.
