General :: Ubuntu : Panels Remain On The Wrong Screen?

Jan 27, 2010

I just updated my Ubuntu from 9.04 to 9.10. Since then everything looks fine, but the panels (the one at the top with menus and date, and the one at the bottom with the running applications and the virtual desktops). I have a dual screen, and the panels show on the wrong one... I already changed the display setting, trying to inverse the screens, but the panel always remain on the wrong screen.

Ubuntu :: Two Panels At Screen Top - Panels Lose Order On Reboot

May 12, 2011

I find that I prefer have both panels located at the screen top. That way I don't have to go to the bottom of the screen for one thing, then back to the top for another. I arranged the panel so the regular top one is on top,then the panel that contains the open applications is underneath.The problem is, when I reboot, the panels lose their order. First, the regular top panel initializes, then the bottom ones starts and pushes the first panel down, which becomes what you see in the picture: I would like to find a way to keep them in the opposite order of what you see in the picture, but every time I reboot they end up in that order.

Fedora Installation :: Updating To 10 From 8 - Start Anaconda The Screen Remain Black

Apr 3, 2009

I've some problems upgrading to version 10 from version 8. My workstation is certified by RedHat. It's a HP xw6600 with double processor Intel Xeon 5405 2.00 12M/133 QC and graphic card for dual screen Nvidia Quadro NVS 290 PCle. In my OS library I found version 8 to install. It has been installed successfully! However; I've read about advantages for workstation on version 10. Thus, I've downloaded Fedora ISO ver.10 and I've tried to install it in my WS. Here I found a problem: Just in the moment it try to start anaconda, the screen remain black. After three failed intents, I have tried to upgrade my version through the 'yum':

# yum -y update
# yum install preupgrade
# preupgrade

It ran perfectly till anaconda try to run again. Then, I've tried to upgrade to ver.9 from ver.8 and I getting the same problem. I've downloaded the Live CD and that is blocked as well. Of course, I've installed all drivers of my WS before upgrade but I get the same problem. So... How I can fix this problem?... I really need move to version 10. Ah!... I've tried to install beta version 11 but after one hour I get a error messages due at a bug

General :: Pre X Screen Resolution Gone Wrong

May 2, 2011

I've just upgraded from Debian Lenny to Squeeze. It didn't go as smoothly as I had hoped, one of the casualties being the proprietary nvidia driver I had previously installed. So I fixed that using the 'Debian way' rather than NVIDIA's installer, and that is now all fine. So far so good. However, when I boot up, pre starting X, my screen is a much lower resolution than it used to be (640x480, I think). Really chunky and ugly as it runs through the start up scripts. I assume that somewhere early in the startup scripts the nvidia driver is being loaded and set to a low resolution. Can someone advise me where this might be, and what to look for? Am I on the right track? I stress that this is before X is started. Once X has started the screen resolution is as I want.

How can I go back to the resolution that was working?

Ubuntu :: Dealing With Panels When Going From Dual To Single Screen?

Sep 20, 2010

I have a laptop. At home and at the office I hook it up to an extra monitor for extra screen space. When I do this I add some panels on the second monitor.

When I occasionaly use my laptop op the train, all my extra panels show up on my first screen, which get really cluttered.

If I delete the panels I have to recreate them when I connect my extra screen again.

Is there any way of configuring gnome so that you can easily recreate 'deleted' panels, or configure the extra panels to not show up unless the second screen is attatched ('lock panel to screen')?

Ubuntu :: Panels Lost After Increasing Screen Resolution / Restore It To Original?

May 18, 2010

I have a weird problem that after increasing the screen resolution from 1024x786 (4:3) to 1280x900 something (also 4:3) that both top and bottom panels have disappeared. I am not familiar with the keyboard shortcuts to much but managed to get a terminal running so I should be able to do some command line stuff but as I am not too familiar where to edit perhaps someone can give me some pointers.

I guess first step is to restore the resolution to the original. Anyone any ideas?

Ubuntu :: Login Screen Appears On Wrong Monitor?

Jan 16, 2010

I've been working my butt off all day now trying to get the nvidia drivers installed and then (the hard part) get dual screen to work properly with them installed. Finally I've gotten to the point where both of my screens are working perfect but now the login screen is on the second monitor instead of the first monitor for some reason I do not know.

Here's my xorg.conf:

# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildd@crested) Sun Feb 1 20:25:37 UTC 2009
Section "ServerLayout"

I've got a HD screen: 1920x1080p. Grub (1.98 ) has the resolution: 800x600 and Plymouth also. It is irritating me that plymouth shows a very ugly purple splash screen in a very low resolution (800x600). How can I fix that? I've got an ATI Radeon HD 4670, and use the drivers from ATI...

Ubuntu :: Accidentally Clicked Wrong Session Blank Screen?

Oct 27, 2010

Posted this in the wrong section so I'm reposting it, is that ok? I installed lxde and logged out and switched to it, but my internet wasn't working (but that's a different thread after I fix this, I was going to try installing wicd) So I tried to go back to gnome, I misclicked and accidentally started a different session. I think it said openbox/gnome, all I get is a blank screen with just the desktop background. It's set to automatically log me in, so when I restart my computer it goes back to the blank screen. How do I get back to the login screen?

Ubuntu Installation :: Wrong Configured Gnome-screensaver (black Screen)?

Feb 24, 2010

all I wanted to get was the "rss-glx"-package as additional screensavers. I am not proud of the results:So I used the Synaptic tool, and since that time the gnome-screensaver shows a black screen instead of any GL-animation in the preview-windows (the small and the big one). The simple screensavers still work (e.g. the Gnome feets).I propably made it worse when trying to uninstall gnome-screensaver and installing xscreensaverxscreensaver crashed on each preview (if the screensaver was installed) and printed an "exited abnormally" (yellow lines on a black screen).Then I was trying to get the original state back - without any "rss-glx".Still not succeeding, the GL-screensavers show nothing except a black screen (e.g. AntSpotLight).So what do I have to do to get back the original state (or to run rss-glx)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Wrong Screen Resolution Options On Media Centre

Apr 22, 2011

I have a desktop with nvidia 9300 connected to a 37" LG hdtv lcd with a VGA analog cable. I'm using this machine as a media center. Up until now it had a windows XP and (besides the fact that it had windows) it work with the correct resolution - 1920x1080. I've installed Ubuntu (the latest available) after to many crashes during hd movies...

I installed the nvidia restricted drivers (the display is plain black otherwise) and my tv is being recognized as a CRT monitor. Guess it's because I'm using the vga connector instead of the dvi one. The problem is that the highest resolution it let me choose is 1024x768. I tried to mess around with the xorg.conf but i discovered it doesn't exist.

Debian :: Grub And Boot Console On Wrong Screen?

Nov 16, 2010

I've recently installed a new graphic card after my old one started to go belly-up and it works nicely in X with twinview. The card have one VGA, one DVI and one HDMI. I have the monitor connected to the VGA and my projector connected to the DVI. However, when I boot the monitor (VGA) don't receive a signal. It is dead until X comes up (and when X comes up it does exactly what I want, it uses the VGA monitor as the main screen).

I had this setup on my old card to and it worked fine. Grub and boot console showed on both screens and I never had to tweak anything to make it do this.

how to enable the VGA outlet, either have boot enabled or only the VGA enabled (either way is fine by me but I really want to see Grub and the boot console on startup).

Ubuntu :: Windows Remain As Background When Closed 10.04

When I close the windows they remain as the background image until something else is moved in its place. This becomes really annoying as I close something and still think it's open. It becomes very distracting. Has anyone had this issue or know what to search to find information on this because I wasn't sure.
