Fedora :: Rotate The Pen When Rotate The Screen?

Sep 7, 2009

how can I rotate the pen when I rotate the screen, and I would like to share this knowledge to other people who may have the same problem I had.

I have a tablet fujitsu-siemens t5010 with installed the wacum packages by default, and the pen was working, but couldn't rotate with xsetwacom command.

In Fedora 10, most guides refer to the wacom device as "stylus" which doesn't work on Fedora 11. I run command " $ xinput list " and I found the line

"PnP Device (FUJ02e5) eraser"id=3[XExtensionKeyboard]

and some lines before there is:

"PnP Device (FUJ02e5)"id=2[XExtensionKeyboard]
^^^^^^ this is the name of the device xsetwacom command needs! ^^^^^^^

I wrote first the line with the eraser cause I suppose that even someone has different wacom model, the eraser will be easy to find by grep command ( $ xinput list | grep -i eraser ), and common in most configures.

now , the edited script I use becomes like this:

if [ $1 == 'normal' ]
xrandr -o normal
xsetwacom set "PnP Device (FUJ02e5)" rotate 0


It would be awesome if it chat could happened automatically , simply by rotating the screen, like it happens on Vista. I'll try to find out any solution and update this post if I make it !

Ubuntu :: Screen Goes Dark On Cube Rotate?

Dec 22, 2010

Just installed 11.04 (Natty). Graphics card is Radeon 9200When I enable Cube in the compizconfig settings manager and rotate the cube, the cube goes almost black. This happens with both drag and keyboard rotate. The background is fine. Everything is defaults and no other effects are enabled.Also, the entire screen goes dark when "opacity when not rotating" is set to anything but 100%.This worked fine with with my previous version 8.04, though I think it used a proprietary driver.Questions:Should I be using a proprietary driver this card? Apparently you have to install a long list of packages first: XFree86-Mesa-libGL libstdc++ libgcc XFree86-libs fontconfig expat freetype zlib

Ubuntu :: Screen Orientation Switched / But How To Rotate The Arrow Keys

Aug 19, 2011

So, I have my trusty ol' Aspire One ZG5 running with Natty. I like changing the screen orientation (sideways) to read comic books and books. I've learned how by this page: URL...So, I have no trouble changing my screen orientation with a quick key-combo, but I still need help,I'm trying to figure out how to change the "orientation" of the arrow keys along with the screen. So when i have the screen oriented to the left, the left key works as the up, the up down as the right, etc.

Fedora :: Nautilus Viewer - Disable Image Auto Rotate?

Nov 5, 2009

I've noticed in Gnome pretty much all applications auto-rotate images when viewing, but leave the original image data intact. This may sound silly, but when I want to post pictures on, for instance, Facebook they upload as the picture was originally taken. So, if I took a picture with the camera flipped sideways it appears upright in Nautilus and the two image viewers I have installed, but when I upload the picture it appears to be flipped on its side. Does anyone know how to disable the auto-rotate when viewing feature?

Ubuntu :: Rotate One Of Two Monitors?

Feb 11, 2011

I have one Dell Ultrasharp U3011 (30", 2560x1600) and one Dell Ultrasharp 2007FP (20", 1600x1200)

When the 2007FP is in landscape mode it matches nearly perfectly in height both pixel and physically wise to the U3011.

See my example picture from my Win 7 dual boot below:

Two Monitors? Ridiculous... by mattlach, on Flickr

The only way I was able to get this to work in Ubuntu was to run two separate X desktops and rotate the 2007FP manually in xorg.conf, and then join them by enabling Xinerama.

Two problems with this solution.

1.) Xinerama is deprecated in favor of Xrandr which I have not been able to make do this.

2.) When using Xinerama Compiz/XGL is disabled, making the desktop feel awfully flat.

Is there any way to avoid this? Is there any way to rotate just one of your displays and maintain Compiz/XGL functionality?

This is on the top computer in my signature.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Cube Rotate Up And Down?

Apr 16, 2010

I've recently enabled the fun stuff with compiz but I've run into a sort of problem... I want 9 desktops in a 3x3 grid (yeah, weird I know) but if I'm using the cube I can only rotate left and right... which is pretty weak sauce. Is there any way to (preferred) have desktops on the top and bottom of the cube and be able to bind a key combo to rotate up and down (ctrl-alt-up/down)? I *could* put 9 desktops in a row, but I really don't like that solution - it takes too many flips to make it from one desktop to another.

Compiz is all full of beautiful (especially burning the windows on close)

Ubuntu :: Can't Rotate Compiz Cube

Feb 23, 2011

I use the hotkey ctrl+alt+left click in Blender to zoom object... So I didn't want Compiz to use the same key to move around the cube. I changed a setting in window move, and either the old or the new key works.
New is alt+1 but it does nothing, same with ctrl+alt+left click. Also, I want the move around hotkey to be something like super+m or ctrl+m etc.

General :: Shrink And Manually Rotate Log?

Sep 16, 2009

My AWSTATS is not updating correctly. Upon closer look I noticed that the access_log file is already >300MB. logrotate was not running. Now I have enabled log rotate. However, it's not touching this existing access_log file. Is there a way for me to manually split and rotate this file into 3 100MB files, access_log.1 access_log.2 and access_log.3? I tried running logrotate (logrotate /home/user/httpd/access_log) from console and it's throwing Segmentation fault.

Ubuntu :: Copy A Portion Of Previous Log To New Log After Rotate?

Jul 12, 2010

I have installed fail2ban and it is working great. It is monitoring the auth.log and it's own log. Now here is my question... Every week, my log files rotate, which is just fine for the most part. But this also rotates the fail2ban log and removes any chance of catching a repeated IP from Sunday to Monday. Is it possible to copy a portion of the previous log to the new log?Here is my scenario of what I would like to accomplish, but I am a novice here so please be specific..

logrotate does its job as expected... then a script writes a portion of the previous log to the new log then appends a word/number after that portion (we call this log.1)...next time the log rotates (creating log.2), I want to take the portion of log.1 after the word/number and append it to log.2 along with another word/numberThis will always ensure there is at least 1 week backlog in the logs for fail2ban to track. I don't want to just change the frequency of the log-roll because it doesn't solve the issue of tracking across the log roll

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Way To Rotate Video File

Jun 15, 2011

I have two video files taken with my phone, but unfortunately they are on their sides.

I was messing around with vlc, and found in the filters option menu, a setting to rotate the video 90 degrees, which is just what I was looking for.... BUT it won't let me save this (I guess you have to re-encode the whole file)

What is the easiest way to rotate video files (.3gp) and keep it in that state, without losing loads of quality?

General :: MySQL Slow Query Log Rotate ?

Jan 17, 2011

I am on a CentOS 64 bit and used webmin to rotate MySQL slow query log. Now the thing is although logs are being rotated daily but the new log files being created are empty which means MySQL is unable to write them due to some reason. I have checked using "ls -l" that both permission and owner of files is same but still MySQL is not writing logs. What could be the reason?

General :: Cannot Configure Second Monitor To Rotate 90' In KDE With Karmic Koala?

Aug 30, 2010

I could not keep this question from turning into a wall of text so I broke it up into these 4 sections.I have 2 monitors (DELL E228WFP and a DELL 2007FP) hooked up to a EVGA E-GEFORCE 8800GT 600MHZ 512MB 1.8GHZ DDR3 PCI-E Dual DVI-I video card. I would like to have the DELL 2007FP set up to the left of the DELL E228WFP and rotated into "portrait" mode^ with both screens sharing a common bottom edge.

This is ideal for reading PDF documentation or papers on one screen and then working on the second one.Steps Undertaken I installed the NVidia drivers (via sudo apt-get install nvidia-current) rebooted ran nvidia-xconfig then ran nvidia-settings. However, like many people, I could not get nvidia-settings to write to my config file despite having run it with kdesudo. Instead, I opened the file with Kate (using KDESudo) and then used the preview from nvidia-settings and just copy pasted it into the file and saved it like that. if I use TwinView I have both monitors working, but when I try to use krandrtray to rotate one of them, it is shown as one large monitor so I cannot rotate just the one I want rotated.However, if I set them up as separate X windows the second one is black and krandrtray only shows the main monitor. I am at a loss of what to try next.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Rotate Cube With Mouse Wheel Since 9.10 Upgrade

Everything worked fine with Jaunty 9.04, but I haven't had any luck getting the "cube" to rotate using the mouse wheel since I upgraded to Karmic 9.10. The other ways to rotate the cube still work with karmic. Note that I upgraded from jaunty to karmic...not a clean install. Viewport switcher and rotate cube are both enabled.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Rotate Cube Option - 360 Degrees

Ubuntu :: Rotate Cube With Mouse Scroll (Karmic)

Mar 17, 2010

I just switched from Jaunty to Karmic, and in the process of setting up desktop effects, I'm having a hard time with configuring the rotate cube compiz effect. Before, I was able to scroll on the desktop (ie, not over a window/application) to spin the cube to the next face. Now, it seems that I either have to use keyboard shortcuts or lose the ability to scroll in applications.

I've tried enabling the mouse scrolling to button 4/button 5 a la this post, but this doesn't fix the problem. This is one of the few desktop effects that really made a difference in terms of convenience, so I'd really like to be able to fix this setting.

Ubuntu :: Compiz - Visual Echo On Cube Rotate

Here's a strange compiz effect - odd visual echo when you rotate the cube. I kept my /home partition from the Lucid beta testing and compiz seems to have problems with it - looks like I will have to do a complete format and reinstall to solve this. I already purged and reinstalled compiz and anything I could find associated with it. Anyone else suffering from a buggy compiz? The strange thing is - this only occurs 1 out of 10 boots???

Ubuntu :: Radeon + Compiz + Rotate = Display Corruption

Apr 21, 2011

Installed Natty a few days ago and everything was working fine. I have a dual head setup with the left monitor rotated Clockwise 90 degrees (AKA rotate left). When I setup the the displays properly, instead of just cloning, I noticed a problem, making Unity unusable. When I apply the rotation either in the xorg.conf fle or using xrandr, the display shows a corrupt looking image. When I turn compiz off and use metacity instead it works perfectly fine.

Display Adapter:


01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Cedar PRO [Radeon HD 5450]

Identifier "Desktop"
Screen "RightScreen"
Screen "LeftScreen" LeftOf "RightScreen"

General :: Catalina.Out File Has Binary Data After Rotate

Feb 14, 2011

I manually rotated my catalina.out file, and now the file jumps to 30+Mb and when I try to view it, less tells me it might be a binary file. It sure appears to have binary data in it, about 30meg of it.

I did the rotate via a copy:
copy catalina.out to another file
cat /dev/null > catalina.out

I have tried using echo:
echo "" > catalina.out
...also with the same result.

This application isn't something I can just bounce when necessary. It kind of appears that the original file is still there - sort of. But is it not readable text anymore.

SunOS 5.10
tomcat 5.5.26 (version required by app vendor)
