Debian Installation :: Window Manager Produces No Background Picture

Jan 14, 2015

I did remake my minimal installation. My window manager produces no background picture else I did add someone. So i will do it using xorg-xli. I did find the (in other cases usual) xinitrc as /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc but in only refers to an other script

and the other script (/etc/X11/Xsession) does not include some usuable steps to include easily supplementary starting commands.

Where is to do that in Debian SID actually?

Server :: ISDN Fax Receiving / Save Fax As A Picture To File And Somehow Retain Telephone Number?

Jun 28, 2010

I have an old Brooktrout ISDN fax card on BRI used mostly for receiving faxes. It works with windows fax server software which sends faxes to different e-mail boxes according to telephone number on which fax was send.

Since card is getting rather old and I don particulary like server software I wonder has anyone got any practice with linux fax servers. What I need is ISDN fax card and software which is able to save fax as a picture to file and somehow retain telephone number (filename or directory name). Sending picture by email is than trivial task.

I have a MS Lifecam Vxx3000. I have managed to get the video to work in SKYPE, but I have to use an external mic. I have checked a lot of places, but could not find anything that works.

Fedora :: Poor Picture Quality In Firefox And Other Browsers?

Jun 18, 2010

After taking a first look onto internet under Fedora linux (using Firefox web browser) I've saw that every single image is displayer much much worse than in same Firefox under Windows. Especially when scaling, it became pixelized, but even without scaling it is smoothen very much. I've checked Konqueror but quality is bad too and the same as in Firefox. What could be the reason and how could I fix it?

BTW, everything in linux GUI looks a little worse, including font, etc, looks smooth. Images under IrfanView too, but not as bad as in browsers. Proprietary Nvidia driver from RPMfusion is installed and 3D works. But running Fedora under VirtualBox in Windows produce same bad quality as in native Fedora.

Fedora :: Se The Browse Buttons And/or Try And Change To Another Picture, Firefox Crashes

Jan 24, 2010

I have two kinda weird problems that have been preventing me from wasting my time!

1. I can go to a flickr page and see the first picture fine. When I use the browse buttons and/or try and change to another picture, firefox crashes.

2. When viewing pictures in facebook (the only reason I use it is to share pictures with my far-off family who doesn't get to see my kids often) the pictures are very badly pixelated.

I'm using an Acer Aspire laptop (Intel 915 graphics, celeron processor, 1.5GB ram) with a completely up to date Fedora 12 installation. The weird part is, my wife's netbook, (1GB ram, Intel 945 graphics) with Fedora 12, displays everything fine. I'm cometely stumped how one machine is having such issues while another isn't. This problem existed in F10 when I used up until the F12 release so I'm presuming it is a graphics card problem (???) since the software and OS has changed.Does anyone know what might be going on or how I can check?

Ubuntu :: Xrandr Doesn't Save Changes - How To Make It To Save Changes

Jun 16, 2010

my mediacenter is attached to an beamer with the optimal resolution of 1280*720 ubuntu 10.04 doesnt offer me this revolution (on my intel 915 graphis controller). this means i have to add this resolution to the possible resolutions. first i used cvt


cvt 1280 720 60

and got this result:


# 1280x720 59.86 Hz (CVT 0.92M9) hsync: 44.77 kHz; pclk: 74.50 MHz
Modeline "1280x720_60.00" 74.50 1280 1344 1472 1664 720 723 728 748 -hsync +vsync

then i added this to xrandr


xrandr --verbose --newmode "1280x720" 74.50 1280 1344 1472 1664 720 723 728 748 -hsync +vsync



xrandr --verbose --addmode VGA1 1280x720

now i can select and use the new resolution - until next reboot. after an reboot 1280x720 is again not available. even if i work with sudo - the resolution isnt there....

Fedora :: Fedora 12 Dual Monitor Background Splits

Dec 12, 2009

I recently upgraded to fedora 12. Before the upgrade I had a desktop background which filled the entire 2 screens. After the upgrade i noticed that the background is displayed on each monitor twice so when displaying the desktop I see the background twice.I tried to change the settings for it like 'center' and 'fill screen' but to no avail. The rest of the dual monitor setup works fine.
