Fedora :: Screen Tearing While Scrolling And Watching Videos?

Apr 18, 2011

"screen tearing" whenever I scroll, watch flash videos, or any videos in general. I first noticed this in Fedora 14, and now I notice the same behaviour in Linux Mint.Does anyone know what might be causing this? My Graphics Card is: Nvidia Geforce GTX 280M (1GB) I'm using Nvidia proprietary drivers. Reading some forums I see that the problem might be related to Compiz. Here's my xorg.conf file (if needed);


Section "Screen"
Identifier"Default Screen"

Ubuntu :: No Audio - Watching Videos ?

Jul 27, 2011

I was watching videos with audio literally minutes ago, and all of the sudden my laptop has absolutely no sound. I have no idea what could have caused it. I just ran a quick update and restarted, didn't fix it. I also went under Preferences > Sound > Hardware and did a speaker test, no sound. What could have possibly happened? Is this a common issue? Is my integrated audio burnt out or something? (No, I don't have mute on.)

Fedora :: Screen Power Off After 5 Minutes When Watching Movies

Sep 13, 2010

Everything has been working great since January with one exception and that is the power saver mode thingy magig. Whenever I am not using the keyboard or mouse, the screen powers off after 5 minutes. When I am watching a movie. I cannot leave the mouse alone for after five minutes of watching the movie, the screen goes black. I'm not sure if the problem is my Nvidia card or Xorg or what. Any ideas how I can get a hold of this? Let me know what you need as far as diagnostic info. I actually have to leave for about 8 hours so.

Fedora :: Scrolling Causes Striping Screen Glitches In Firefox?

Dec 29, 2009

I had to disable "smooth scrolling"

Edit > Preferences > Advanced > General > Smooth Scrolling

I'm using LXDE on a HP510 Laptop, it's onboard graphics chipset is a: Intel Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller. I am not using an xorg.conf file, so the settings are just the default autodetect ones I assume. I've noticed it when scrolling in firefox, and can't seem to get it to do it when scrolling in other applications, but I haven't really used this laptop much since installing the Fedora 12 LXDE spin recently. I'm not sure what information to supply that will help you help me. Here is a screenshot to show what happens.

I dunno what the big black box is, its only visible on the screenshot. I had to bind a script to printscreen to get it to make a screenshot, so its probably something I need to do here to get rid of it?


DATE=`date +%Y-%m-%d %H-%M`
import -window root "$HOME/Desktop/screenshot $DATE.png"

I also can't get the touchpad scrolling to work. Or my external monitor without some issues. So I think I will be making an xorg.conf file at some point.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Screen Tearing After Resolution Change?

May 15, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04, my screen resolution was reset to 1024x768. As the native resolution for my monitor is 1920x1080, I went to reset that. The resolution didn't exist in the Monitors applications, so I did the following:

kane@Griffin:~$ cvt 1920 1080 60
# 1920x1080 59.96 Hz (CVT 2.07M9) hsync: 67.16 kHz; pclk: 173.00 MHz
Modeline "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync


The monitor adjust, but most of the screen shows tearing and doesn't update correctly. Hard to explain, so I attached a screenshot at 1024x768, working normally, and 1920x1080, fubar. I've cropped these images to get them to fit the forum limitations, but they still show the issue.

My monitor is an LG Flatron W2253TQ, my graphics card is an ATI Radeon HD 4650, although the manufacturer is Biostar. I'm using the default free drivers.

Ubuntu :: Natty Screen Tearing / Incorrect Monitor Refresh Rate

May 3, 2011

I'm currently running an up-to-date copy of Ubuntu 11.04, but I'm noticing some strange behavior with the monitor settings. First of all, I started investigating this because I'm seeing a lot of screen tearing while watching videos full screen as well as while the screensaver (lattice) is running. On Ubuntu 10.10 I was able to simply set the refresh rate of my monitor to 60Hz through the Nvidia tool and everything worked great. Now, this is no longer the case. I'm using a Samsung Syncmaster 205BW monitor with an Nvidia 8600 GT video card. They are connected with a DVI cable.The strange thing is, the default tool, Monitors, claims my monitor is "unknown" and will only allow me to select 50Hz, 51Hz, and sometimes 52Hz for the refresh rate.

The Nvidia tool claims that my monitor has been detected as a Samsung Syncmaster and is configured to run at 60Hz.However, another area of the Nvidia tool claims that my monitor is using a refresh rate of 59.95Hz. none of these solutions had any effect. I'm still seeing video tearing. I let the Nvidia tool re-write my xorg.conf file after trying these solutions.

Hardware :: Unable To See Everything On Screen Without Scrolling Over Then Screen Pulls Back

Jul 7, 2011

I'm trying to fix this screen problem I continue to have (an example: in Evolution, its like my screen is too small to see everything, I have to scroll over down or over, then the window moves over and pulls me back to original spot. I've tried to change the screen resolution and that actually makes things worse. The screen problem is very irritating and I don't know why its happening. I've been using Ubuntu or Mint for years and have never had this problem.

Also, a similar problem but nowhere near as annoying: the sides of either side of screen are black. I can't get the monitor to be completely filled. I went to Intel's website and they have a few drivers compatible for linux (at least that is what they are saying).

I'm using Ubuntu lts 10.04 lucid lynx
mscatamaran@mscatamaran-desktop:~$ lspci

Debian Multimedia :: Xscreensaver Blanks Screen While Watching Movies?

Jun 5, 2011

I'm using Debian Squeeze with Fluxbox and I'm having a problem with xscreensaver. I've set to blank screen after 10 minutos of inactivity, but the problem is that when I'm watching a movie, the screen is blanked after 10 minutes too. So I have to manually kill xscreensaver before starting to see a movie, or I have to move my mouse / press keyboard every 10 minutes to activate the screen again.

I've done some search before posting and I only found something about a SMPlayer's option named "Disable screensaver", but it is already on and it has no effect preventing xscreensaver to work. Here is a screen shoot of my SMPlayer configuration window:


Apparently, xscreensaver isn't being able to recognize that another program is running. Could it be related to dbus?

PS: I had a dbus problem when I first upgraded to squeeze, my multimedia keys stoped working in banshee (whenever I clicked to play/pause/next etc, another banshee process was started), but I solved it by adding this line to my ~/.xinitrc: eval "$(dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session)"

Software :: Slackware 13.37 KDE Crashes When Watching Video Full Screen With Firefox 4

May 9, 2011

I have been trying out the new Slackware 13.37 and I have found that KDE will crash anytime I am watching a full screen video with Firefox 4 and attempt to adjust the audio levels using the keyboard buttons. If I use the mouse to adjust the audio level through the audio mixer gui, it seems to work fine. Both of my laptops ( a Gateway MP6954 and a Dell Inspiron 1520) are exhibiting this same problem. Both have the Adobe Flash Player version installed.

OpenSUSE Install :: Screen Scrolling Really Fast And Will Go Black

I Have installed openSUSE 11.3 using VMWare and liked it so I thought I would install as my main OS. So I downloaded the latest livecd Gnome and created a usb install using imagewriter with suse.
