General :: X11 Forwarding - Error: Can't Open Display: <ip Of Display>

Jun 28, 2011

I have the following scenario that doesn't seem to work normally. I have a windows 7 pc from which I am using putty to connect to my other linux servers (all running redhat 5 and 6). So here is the scenario that works and one that does not work. And I'm trying to figure out the one that does not work. Scenario that works:

From windows 7 (putty) I ssh into Linux_Server_1.
echo $DISPLAY
localhost:10.0

I run xclock and I see it pop up on my windows 7 pc. I am using xming on windows 7 to help me populate the display from linux to windows. One that does not work:

From windows 7 (putty) I ssh into Linux_Server_1. Then from Linux_Server_1 I ssh into Linux_Server_2.
echo $DISPLAY
<no output>

I try to setup $DISPLAY with localhost:10.0 or 0.0 or even my windows 7 pc ip address:0.0 ....etc Then when I try to run xclock I doesn't work.

I get these error messages: Error: Can't open display: <ip of display>

Also as a side note all our Linux servers are sitting on one subnet. My pc is sitting on another subnet. I use vpn to connect to the subnet where the servers sit from my pc.

Networking :: X Forwarding Through SSH Not Working: $DISPLAY Not Set

May 7, 2011

I am trying to redirect my display from a debian box that I ssh into to my laptop. I connect using

Code:
$ssh -vv -XC remote.host
and in the debug messages all I get about X is this

Code:
debug1: Requesting X11 forwarding with authentication spoofing.
Once I'm connected, X forwarding does not work. For example, when I try and start, say, xcalc, I get

Code:
$xcalc &
Error: Can't open display:

It seems that the problem is the $DISPLAY variable is not set on the remote machine (echo $DISPLAY doesn't return anything), but from what I read, sshd is responsible for setting this variable, as long as "X11Forwarding yes" is uncommented in the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file (which I made sure is true). Is there any other reason why sshd won't open a display on the remote host?

Ubuntu Networking :: Ssh X Forwarding Not Setting Display?

Feb 1, 2011

At home, I am running Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS with openssh server OpenSSH_5.3p1 Debian-3ubuntu5 In my office, we are using CentOS 5.5 with openssh OpenSSH_4.3p2, OpenSSL 0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 Both my /etc/ssh/sshd_config at home and my ~/.ssh/config has X forwarding enabled.When I log in to my home machine from my office with ssh -X -vv host, I got the following:

Code:

debug2: x11_get_proto: /usr/bin/xauth list :0.0 2>/dev/null
debug1: Requesting X11 forwarding with authentication spoofing.
debug2: channel 0: request x11-req confirm 0

But once I log in, I get:

Code:

home:~>echo $DISPLAY
DISPLAY: Undefined variable.

I tried setting DISPLAY to localhostx.0 (xx from 0 to 10) but none of that works. I have also tried ssh -Y but the result is the same.

General :: X11 Forwarding Failed - Error: Can't Open Display: MAC_ip:0.0

Mar 31, 2011

I also had ever tried all methods they mentioned, but my problem is still there. I am using a MAC OS X 10.6 ssh a remote redhat server. I hope to see X of redhat on my own MAC. Below is what I've done: 'MAC_ip' stands for my mac; 'redhat_ip' stands for redhat server.

3) type command: DISPLAY=MAC_ip:0.0
4) type command: export
5) Back to MAC
6) change to root
7) type command: xhost +Redhat_ip
8) vim /etc/ssh_config, add X11Forwarding yes
9) Back to redhat, type: xclock

I got below message: Error: Can't open display: MAC_ip:0.0 I also tried some methods to login as others suggested:

OpenSUSE Install :: Display Size Only 800x600

Aug 8, 2010

Continuing with my 11.3 install on an old Toshiba Tecra M1 laptop:

When i was installing, i had the options of 1600x1200, 1280x1024, 1024x768 etc.

I chose the 1024x768, because it fit the laptop screen perfectly.

But after the installation, the highest resolution i get is 800x600, and it's wasting a bunch of real estate on the screen.

I mean, if during installation it could do 1024x768, why not after the install? obviously the graphics card supported it.

OpenSUSE Install :: Wrong Display Size On Resume - 11.2

Aug 25, 2010

I installed opensuse 11.2 on ASUS R2E nicely It have a 7" touchscreen and works nice. The screen is correctly settled to 800x480 on boot however after a S2RAM it is reinitialized as 800x600. I made an xorg.conf with only one fixed mode on 800x480 but daesn't seems to be considered on resume. After cold boot sax2 get the right size (800x480) and after resume 800x600 The video chipset is intel 945 GM.

May this be related to hardware reinitialization ? How to re-initialize X on resume ?

Hardware :: Get A 21.5" Monitor To Display At The Right Size - Ubuntu 10.04?

Nov 29, 2010

After getting tired of squinting at my netbook screen (System 76 Starling) I bought a 21.5" Asus VE228H monitor. It works beautifully with the right resolution and aspect, EXCEPT that the driver Ubuntu is using is for a 22" monitor, and the image on the screen has about 1/8" missing all around. Sadly, this eliminates the menu bar at the top of the screen. Moving the image down doesn't help. Is there any way to shrink the image, or get Ubuntu to use a driver for a 20" or 21" monitor instead of 22"? I've been using computers since DOS command line days, but have been using Ubuntu only about 2 months.

General :: Emulator (Project64) - Display Size 800X600

Apr 26, 2011

So I installed Project64 (For those who don't know it is a Nintendo 64 emulation program so I can get my Mario fix), Which I always read is hard to put on a Linux. I didn't think I had WINE so I ran $ whereis wine and I guess I do. But I never set a config for it, So I don't get how an install through wine would work. How was the .exe read?, Because I thought wine had to run to read those, and I don't think it ran. At least there was no visible sign when I installed.

||-2nd part-||

I got my Project64.exe, put it in a directory I made, did the $ ch commands to change permission , did $cd <dir> then I ran ./Directory:$ Project.64.exe 'gamefile.z64' and it seems to work fine. Except for it leaves the display as 800X600 after I close it. Why is it changing display size, and not returning to my default and can I make it stop doing it?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 - Wrong Display Size Under VMware Server

Mar 20, 2011

Is there some better way of getting my display size set to 1280x960 when I launch openSUSE 11.4 under VMware Server? Here's what I've done so far: I am running Windows 7 on an AMD Phenom II system (motherboard: Gigabyte 880GMA-UD2H). I installed VMware Server (version 2.0.2) so that I can run openSUSE 11.4. The initial install went pretty smoothly. However, the display size was set to 800x500. I attempted to set it to 1280x960 by changing the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-monitor.conf file as follows:

Code:
/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-monitor.conf
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Default Monitor"
## If your monitor doesn't support DDC you may override the
## defaults here
# HorizSync 28-85
# VertRefresh 50-100
HorizSync 1-10000
VertRefresh 1-10000
## Add your mode lines here, use e.g the cvt tool
Option "PreferredMode" "1280x960_60.00"
# 1280x960 59.94 Hz (CVT 1.23M3) hsync: 59.70 kHz; pclk: 101.25 MHz
Modeline "1280x960_60.00" 101.25 1280 1360 1488 1696 960 963 967 996 -hsync +vsync

This resulted in a display size of 1734x1342 (or something close to that). I noted from the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file that the vmwlegacy driver is being used instead of the vmware svga driver. There is a note that the vmwlegacy driver does not support the "PreferredMode" setting in the monitor section of the xorg.conf files. For the time being, I have set my horizontal and vertical rates to 60kHz and 60Hz, respectively. This does limit the maximum display size to 1280x960, but for all the wrong reasons. How do I set up my system to get the correct display size?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Windows Display Larger Than The Available Screen Size

Sep 1, 2011

In Ubuntu 11.04, all windows display larger than the available screen size, and I haven't found a way to make them fit within the display area of the monitor. This is a Dell 19" flat screen monitor, and I've tried changing the display; no matter what resolution is selected, the windows all bleed past the screen.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: System Won't Retain Display Size Setting In SAX2

Jul 28, 2010

System won't retain 16:9 display size setting in YaST (SaX2). I'm using SuSE 11.1 (64 bit).

SaX2 settings as follows:

Monitor is Samsung Syncmaster XL2370-1 (digital). Resolution is set to 1920X1080 (1080p). Diagonal measurement set to 23 inches. Display size indicates 509 m.m. X 286 m.m. (20 3/8" X 11 1/2").

Aspect ratio is entered as 16:9, but after saving and restarting computer it keeps coming back as 16:10.

Samsung literature says 16:9, and measurements above confirm this.

So why does it keep going back to 16:10, and how can I get it to retain 16:9? (Same thing happens on another computer, also running SuSE 11.1, and with a second of these same monitors.)

OpenSUSE Install :: Desktop Display Size Too Large Want Smaller As Default

Ubuntu :: Unity & Netbook Display Size - Applications Are Oversized For The 1024 X 600

Apr 26, 2011

I upgraded to 11.04 about 10 days ago. I have this intermittently weird problem where some of the applications, some of the time, are oversized for the 1024 x 600 display. I can't get to the buttons on the bottom end of the screen, and the window refuses to decrease in size enough so that it all fits on. So far, I've had this problem with Evolution, Pytrainer, Gimp, and another one that escapes my memory.

Has anyone else had this issue? (Except for the Evolution bug, which has been around since 2005 or thereabouts. How on earth is that thing still the default when nobody bothers to fix it up?) how to a workaround? Heck, I don't even know where to go to report this kind of bug.

Ubuntu :: Display Size On TV - Shrunk And Has A Lot Of Unused Space On The Sides/top/bottom

Sep 28, 2010

I am running 10.04 Lucid on a Toshiba Satellite A105. The onboard video is an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The issue is that when I connect it to my Panasonic widescreen TV (laptop is widescreen as well) the display is shrunk and has a lot of unused space on the sides/top/bottom. So like, if I wanna watch something from Hulu, I plug in the S-Video, and I can watch on the TV, but it's not using all the screen available... I have not found a way to resize the output so it fills the screen.

Debian Configuration :: Display Size Wrongly Detected After Installing NVIDIA Driver

May 17, 2010

Using squeeze with a GeForce4 MX 440 video card (NVIDIA) I have a monitor (4/3 aspect ratio, 1024x768 usually), and a TV connected via S-video After installing the NVIDIA driver using the NVIDIA binaries I managed to have a cloned twin screen configuration working.

However, the monitor is (wrongly) detected as having size 1824x768 (aspect ratio is widescreen) Using system monitor, I can set the correct size, but only for one session; besides, the login screen too is messed up the xorg.conf file seems right: proper resolution modes are set; xorg.0.log too

General :: Virtualized Screen Resolution - Use A Larger Size Display That Is Configured By Default

Apr 18, 2010

I have a 64 bit Ubuntu 9.10 workstation with two virtualized guest OSes using KVM/QEMU. Also both 64-bit. One is Fedora 12 the other is beta of Ubuntu 10.04.

The problem is that I would like to use a larger size display that is configured by default.

Both guest OSes have a maximum screen resolution of 1024x768. I would like to increase this to something like 1280x900 or 1440x900. The resolution of the host system is 1920x1080.

This configuration appears to be a result of the installation detecting the resolution being reported by the virtual screen during installation.

The only information I have found on the subject suggests modifying the xorg.conf file in the /etc/X11 directory. Neither guest system has this file.

I tried creating one by hand in the Fedora system and managed to render it completely unusable. Not a big deal as this is recently installed and can be reinstalled easily.

Ubuntu Installation :: Display Error Notification 'Could Not Apply The Stored Configuration For Monitors X Server Does Not Support Size Requested' On Bootup

May 8, 2010

Since upgrading to Lucid, I am getting the following dialog warning on login: 'Could not apply the stored configuration for monitors X Server does not support size requested' Im using the current proprietary NVIDIA graphics driver with dual heads. My display is fine, but the warning every time I login is annoying. After googling around I found this thread: [URL]. I tried going to Monitor Preferences as suggested. My resolution as displayed in the default tool is set to 3840 x 1200, which I suspect is the issue forcing the dialog, but I cant change the resolution, refresh rate or rotation from the Monitor Preference dialog box. dino99's response (in the referenced post) about xorg.conf not being needed anymore seems relevant. How can I resolve this issue and get rid of this annoying warning? Is there a configuration that I can update with a supported resolution to placate lucid?

Fedora :: Xsane Page Size Setting - Cannot Find A Page Size Anywhere In Any Of The Buttons

Jun 5, 2010

I have a Canoscan LiDE 30 scanner which works fine in Linux. I haven't used it in months, and never since moving from Jaunty x86_64 to Fedora 11 x86_64. This evening I suddenly need to scan two pages to send to someone via e-mail, and the recipient is desperate to receive them. Naturally, Xsane has decided this is the moment to screw me.

The problem: I cannot figure out how to tell Xsane that the page size is 8.5 11. It insists on scanning only the left side, 3.99 x 11. I cannot find a page size anywhere in any of the buttons.

In Preview I once got it to scan the entire page, but could not figure out how to save the image to file. Subsequently I have not been able to figure out how I did it. In any event, scanning from the small main window always scans 3.99 x 11. Adjusting the scan area manually in the Preview window allows me to change the size area in the small main window to 8.5 x 11, but when I then scan from the small main window it reverts to 3.99 x 11.

I have scanned the document a hundred times at least, each time trying different buttons, but nothing has succeeded in getting the full page.
