My system clock loses about 10 seconds every minute. The hwclock is fine. I've tried different kernel args (clocksource=acpi_pm, nohz=off, highres=off). None of these have any effect. I am running Fedora 11 with kernel 2.6.30-105.2.23.fc11.x86_64 on an AMD Istanbul node (Processor 2439 SE).
I am running FC12 x86_64 with KDE 4.3.3 using an NVidia GeForce 9600 graphics card. I installed the drivers followings leigh's procedure and everything works fine -- apart from the fact that clicking the the "f" button to bring up the K menu takes between 8 and 10 seconds. Same thing happens if I select anything from the K desktop pop-up menu, like the Konsole or the run command for example. I disabled desktop effects but this had no impact.
It simply doesn't work. No matter what city I put there (I even tried putting American cities) the applet just widens a bit to the left and shows nothing. Doing some searches, I learned the protocol it uses is called METAR, the data is provided by airports, and the list of locations is at:[URL]..
But this file doesn't exist! What exists is:[URL].. And that one only has American cities. But, as I said, not even American cities work. Where should I start looking?
I'd like to have two gnome clock applets, one with the regular default time and date in the upper right hand corner (the default) and another set to epoch time. However, I can't figure out how to set the second gnome clock applet to display the epoch time. I'm running FC12.
I'm experiencing a strange problem with GNOME Clock on Fedora 13. When the applet is in the bottom panel, and I click on the clock, the popup display appears at the top of the screen rather than at the bottom of the screen (above the bottom panel) as would be expected. Worse, the display appears higher than would be expected had the clock been on the top panel, meaning the display is cutoff (ie, the display goes off the top of the screen). I've tried playing with my .gconf files, and removing and re-adding the GNOME Clock applet, but nothing has worked. I'm not sure if this is a weird quirk particular to my settings, or a more general bug; can readers here check to see if the behavior I've described occurs if the Clock applet is added to the bottom panel?
After upgrading to F13 certainly - but from time to time my clock in Gnome will throw a wobbly. Not even consistent wobblies, sometimes the weather is missing completely, as now, sometimes only a slice of the weather icon appears, and the time/date display can be garbled. It seems to happen after a change such as booting up or a weather update, I've tried removing the applet from the panel and re-installing it, and even removing and re-installing the top panel. I'm reluctant to try removing and reinstalling Gnome-applets as that can remove a whole slew of dependencies and possibly bork an otherwise reliable install, after all I can live with it.
I am using 64 bit F15 with gnome in fallback mode with compiz.I see the clock in the login screen, but with no changes clock does not show anymore and i can't see the notification area (the four desktops in the right corner as well as the windows name). I have deleted .gconf and .gconfd (that solved a similar issue time ago), but it does not work this time.I have
Is there any method to add a location to the list in the gnome weather applet/clock ? [EDIT] To be more precise: my location is not there, how to extend the list with my location so I could have weather displayed for my city
I recently decided to try KDE4 and would like the change the clock on the panel to display 12 hour format and not the default 24hour format but i can not find where to change this option currently the clock looks like the attached picture. Gnome has this option and I would like to see it in KDE if it exists in the default clock. I am willing to replace the default KDE clock with a seperate widget if one exists for this.
The run timer in the lower left corner in the VLC window is off by a factor of 1.5553333...It displays 3 minutes elapsed, and 4:40 has elapsed on my stopwatch.edit:I just calculated the error for a 2 hour recording, and it worked out exactly - the clock is off by a factor of 1.5553333, for this captured format.
I'm trying to do something a little crazy with my netbook, and I'm looking for some sage advice. Since I'm trying to maximize free screen space on my 10" netbook, I have top and bottom the panels auto-hide. No problems there, and since I use a lot of keyboard shortcuts (some default, some custom) I don't even use the touchpad unless I absolutely have to. My most common apps are shortcutted, and I've got Alt-F2 for everything else. However, by hiding the top panel, I don't have a clock on the screen. This is fine in essence, but when I want to know the time, I have to mouse up to the top of the screen. Not horrible, but it goes against my nature!
So my question is: Is there any way to make holding a key/combo display the time, then have it disappear when the key is released? I would love for this to happen when I hold the windoze key, as it is currently unused.
(btw, my windoze key will soon be an Ubuntu key, the good people at System76 and their free sticker set:[URL]... I know how to add custom keyboard shortcuts, but other than launching a clock app, I have no idea how to make this happen, or if it's even possible.
In the clock display (Kubuntu 10.10 32-bit defaults at the lower right in the task bar) I have been having a problem. When I right click on the clock (is there a name for right-clicking when referring to both right and left handed people?) or sometimes when I just run my mouse over the clock, it changes from CDT to UTC. Doing it again reverses that. I'm speaking about the actual clock on the task bar, not the pop-up panel (tool tip?) that comes up when you roll your mouse over it.
I have both time zones selected so that I can see them in the pop-up info panel when I run the mouse over the clock for a second. But, normally, I just want the CST/CDT displayed always, in the task bar.
I've looked at all the options I could find and haven't found what I missed. It started up recently, so it was probably some setting I changed, but now can't find.
A minor problem, but annoying. Anyone? If the answer is already out there, link me up!
I installed Ubuntu on a Toshiba Satellite about a month ago. It worked for about three hours. I installed Wine, and it still worked but the display would sometimes go black for a few seconds. Later that day I rebooted and that was it, no more Ubuntu. It goes through all of the process of booting but then the screen just goes black before I even get to the purple Ubuntu screen. I'm running this on a drive in an enclosure so I simply plugged the drive into another machine ( actually two other machines ), and it works perfectly. I have an old Vista drive that I put in the Toshiba and that works just fine, so it's not a pure hardware issue. Just to be sure I wiped the Ubuntu drive and re-installed, this time without installing wine. No Toshiba love. Just the black screen. I even made a flash drive with the loader and iso from the Ubuntu site. Same deal. It starts to boot from the flash and then just goes black where you would normally expect the purple Ubuntu screen. This thing is driving me nuts and I am at a point where I really need this machine working and will be faced with simply wiping the Ubuntu drive and installing Windows.
I had my system running fine on Debian for about a month and a half. Then tonight the display suddenly went black. The system was still running, but my screen was black (though the monitor didn't indicate that it had lost signal). I restarted the computer; it booted through the BIOS and showed me my GRUB menu, but then the display went black again. Shorting the jumper pins to clear CMOS data didn't help; in fact, that made the display go black even sooner. Now, I see my motherboard's BIOS splash screen for a couple of seconds, and the display goes black. I know the system is still booting okay, because I hear the usually noises from the internal speaker. But I now have no visual output.
Could this be an issue with the motherboard or the video card? The board doesn't have onboard video, or else I'd try that. And I don't have any spare boards, video cards, or monitors available to me here. I did try using a D-sub cable instead of DVI-D (my monitor and video card support both), but that was no better. What can I do to try to fix this problem?

I have a fresh install of OpenSUSE 11.4 64bit and I have installed the AMD Display drivers for my Radeon HD 5970. Everything seems to be working quite well. I have a multiple monitor setup (1280x1024 monitor and a 1920x1080 monitor).
I have my primary display set to 1920x1080, however when I try to enable the second display, I get a CRTC error that the display is over the maximum (1920x1920). If I enable both monitors at lower resolutions, there is no problem.
I have done a fair bit of reading and have been unable to determine where this maximum is set, or how to change it. I'd like to be able to run both monitors at their native resolutions.
I had a computer running a NVIDA Quadro NVS 450 with 4 screens on Fedora 14 and it worked fine. I make a new install with Fedora 15 and I am now not able any more running more as one screen with Fedora 15. I am running now on run level 3 and when I configure the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf for one screen, Gnome starts correctly. When I change to two screens, and runs "startx", Gnome 3 starts and displays only the background picture without any manager. The file /var/log/Xorg.0.log shows no errors.
Just installed F15, was everything fine, but then gnome got away, from terminal I have<gnome-session:1951): Warning can't start display message.Before that I put in config file one extra line to start tint2 like <sleep 3 && tint2.Not sure was it the reason?
I installed 'Alarm Clock' from the Software Center and would like to have said app autostarts. There is an option in Alarm Clock to autostart with Gnome but that doesn't work so I assume the reason being I'm not root.
How to autostart Alarm Clock?
Also, in System > Preferences > Startup Applications, the 'Add' asks for a command. Is this like Windows whereas I simply point it to the app I want started? I don't even know where apps are installed. Who said ignorance is bliss?
