Actually they aren't completely shows half of "2 of 6" or whatever page it is on. Like it cuts that in half and prints the 2nd half of "2 of 6" onto a separate new page.

Ubuntu :: Screen Blank After 10 Minutes?

Jul 19, 2011

Since upgrading to 11.04, my screen goes blank if I am not active for 10 mins. This is really annoying if I'm sat on the sofa watching a movie through the computer!

The screensaver is set to 1 hour and the power management settings are set to 'never'. I never had this problem with the previous Ubuntu version. I'm on a desktop rather than a laptop.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Screen Blank Out After Few Minutes

Mar 19, 2010

I have been having an issue with my screen blanking out after a few minutes (number of minutes unknown), since I reinstalled Fedora 12 (KDE) a couple of weeks ago. I have tried, yes, a lot of things to try to set it so that it doesn't blank out, to no avail. I have spent a lot of time on the Fedora forum seeking resolution, with a variety of suggestions, all to no avail. I went into System Settings > Power Control, and fooled with things around there and they didn't work. I tried xset and dpms and shutting them off. Still no cigar.

OpenSUSE Install :: Blank Screen After 10 Minutes?

Aug 29, 2010

I have the problem (11.3) that the screen is blanked after 10 minutes (console and KDE). After some searching, I found out, it is a kernel "feature". Since it is a server, which should display network status permanently on screen this behavior is fatal.

I have tried:

- switch of power features vie Grub kernel param: apm=off, powersaved=off
- in kde via screensaver options
- in term "setterm -blank 0"

Software :: Xorg - Screen Blank After 10 Minutes In Idle State

Feb 3, 2011

Xorg - Screen Blanking after 10 minutes. Backlight level lower upon return. This is my .xinitrc file:

setxkbmap "se"
xmodmap -e "remove lock = Caps_Lock"
xmodmap ~/.xmod
xrdb ~/.Xdefaults
xset r rate 200 25 .....

pcmanfm --desktop &
compiz --use-root-window --indirect-rendering ccp

After 10 minutes in idle state (watching a video in vlc or in flash counts as idle time too) the screen blanks. As I mentioned in the title, the backlight level is lower when screen turns back on. This is a new feature of the problem, and might be related to a recent upgrade of xorg. Where is the configuration file that handles the screensaver? And why is it even enabled by default?

General :: After Booting Logging Into The User A/c - Gives A Blank Screen With The Desktop Wallpaper

Jan 8, 2011

I just put on my Linux PC now and after booting logging into the user a/c, it just gives a blank screen with the desktop wallpaper - no menu's or anything, so there's pretty much nothing I can do. I know I had removed the menu and replaced it with the dock (awn dock or something).

However, I can log in as root and root works fine (so I'm doing the update at the moment).

Coming back to my question, I used to know an Ubuntu command which I put in as sudo (terminal)and it used to work like a magic command which would literally restore and repair my linux installation - I even used it when I bought a new system and transferred my linux hard drive from my previous machine to the new one and this one command actually setup and prepared my linux installation to work smoothly in my new PC - just one command after connecting my h/drive in the new PC.

General :: Nagios 3.2.3 - Blank White Screen After Login

Jun 6, 2011

I'm relatively new at Linux, and I am trying to get Nagios to work correctly. I'm running CentOS if that matters. I think I followed the directions here correctly, but all I get is a blank white screen after I login. The documentation page works fine, but I don't see anything on the main http://localhost/nagios page. I have looked at other solutions to this problem (adding the correct path to the open_basedir in /etc/php.ini) and that still did nothing. Any Way to decode my httpd logs... Any time I refresh, I get these four errors from /var/log/httpd/error_log:

General :: Blank Screen And No Login After FC12 Installation On Dell E6410

Jun 3, 2010

I am trying to put FC12 on a new Dell E6410 (laptop) with video "00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 0046 (rev 02)". I used the Live disk and successfully installed, but then I updated. Thereafter when I boot I get a black screen. I cannot even get to the login.

Unfortunately I really do not know where to start to try to trouble shoot. (I can get into run level 3 on the latest kernel). Also the issue seems to come about from kernel to kernel since the blank screen issue does not arise in the former. For now I switched the order of these kernel in GRUB so the older one boots first and this seems to work.

Although the blank screen is my most pressing issue, I am having others too (synaptic mouse, wifi, suspend, internal camera). Well, hopefully once I can run the newest kernel these issue will disappear.

Ubuntu :: Booting Into A Blank Screen?

Jan 11, 2011

I had a problem with my system today when I came home and unlocked the screen and the single program I had left running had crashed and so did AWN, I restarted the system and it just goes to a blank screen just before it got to the login and does nothing. I reinstalled the system and reinstalled the ATI drivers downloaded from the ATI website just like I had previously (had problems with the Ubuntu drivers in the past) and rebooted the system and got the same blank screen... Now I'm on my second system reinstall of the night but haven't installed the ATI drivers yet, but I need them to set up my dual screen gig.

Ubuntu :: Blank Screen While Booting?

Aug 17, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my laptop. I uninstalled, now I installed again. I used WUBI both times. This time, every time I boot, (after I select Ubuntu in the wubi and grub bootloaders) I get a blank black screen with a flashing _ in the corner. Then I get to the login screen and it works like normal. Are there any solutions for this? I'd sort of prefer to see the ubuntu logo and flashing dots.

Ubuntu :: Netbook's Blank Booting Screen?

Jan 4, 2010

On this Lenovo netbook: I was playing with Firefox, came across a problem, established in general terms what it was referring to and that it might be easier just to reinstall Ubuntu andupgrade to 9.04.Succesfully installed, it said, please to do a restart. But the screen is blank. Now, all I have is a totally dark screen whether booting off the hard drive (it starts running and clicking, then stops clicking; staysrunning 'til I switch off again) or via the external CD drive (which lights up, flashing, for a few moments while clicking, then runs down).

I've tried the Ubuntu CD which originally installed ok, and also the one from which I'd first installed Ubuntu instead of XP.I wondered if I'd inadvertently switched off the screen, but apparentlynot - in any case, presumably it would default to On? I've also looked forsomething on an external screen, I know that works because I played with
it a few weeks ago. fn-F" to toggle the screen doesn't do anything, nor fn-up/down to change brightness. I've just tried ctrl-alt-backspace, with CD and HDD, to no effect.

The battery's fully charged but in any case I'm using the psu and alllights are correctly lit. I've reseated the CD leads several times to besure.I've never networked it to the desktop - it had seemed a good idea to keep them separate so only one gets broken.

Ubuntu Installation :: Blank Screen When Booting With 10.04 - Amd64?

May 2, 2010

I have a Asus A8N-E motherboard with AMD64 processor and NVidia 6600 GT graphics card.I downloaded the AMD64 version of 10.04 (the boot+live cd) and tried booting with it. After looking at the screen showing Ubuntu loading with 5 dots moving forward for about 5minutes, the screen went blank (not completely blank as power-off but a very dark grey color). I waited for about 10-15 minutes in this state but nothing happened.During this whole 10-15 min period the disk usage on the machine was high.Eventually, I just turned off the machine and booted into windows (which was already present on my machine) successfully.Is that blank screen for such a long duration a normal step during installation or was a different process expected?

Ubuntu :: Computer Not Booting To GUI - Get Blank Screen With Cursor?

Jul 5, 2011

several months ago I installed Maverick and it worked well, but eventually I lost the GUI. I fiddled with it to no avail. So I decided to do the Natty upgrade and it ended up not fixing the problem though I am able to boot to graphics safe mode.

I popped on this forum and a couple others but got little response and ran out of fiddle time. SO now I have a little time to mess with this, and I REALLY want to move back over to Ubuntu so if any one is familiar with that could be the issue

Ubuntu :: Slim Login Manager Preventing Computer From Booting To Login Screen

Aug 4, 2011

yesterday i installed slim login manager on my computer (eee pc 1018p, ubuntu 11.04), and now it cannot get passed the ubuntu loading screen (with orange dots underneath) when booting. i tried booting into recovery mode and that didn't work either. i also left the computer trying to boot overnight and that didn't work.
basically, during this loading screen that should eventually bring you to the login screen, i can alt+tab to see the progress of the load. the progress is stuck on

Is there anything I can do from grub to remove slim?or, is there any way I can access my ubuntu partition and save all my files?

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting To CDROM Makes Blank Screen?

Jan 19, 2011

When I start my system on the Ubuntu 10.10 CDROM I get a tiny icon at the bottom, then the screen shuts off due to no signal. So I cannot run the Live CDROM. Relevant here is that Debian CDROM runs just fine. (Lenny installs and runs good, but squeeze does not) Linux Mint (based on Ubuntu) gets me a pretty graphical welcome screen, then the monitor shuts off just like Ubuntu and Kubuntu.WinXP installed and runs without a hitch.

My system: Gigabyte GA-P43-ES3G with 4Gb ram, 750 Gb SATA HDD, Nvidia Quadro video card.I have gone through the BIOS settings looking for clues:SATA AHCI mode is set to IDE (versus AHCI)SATA port 0-3 native mode set to enabled (versus disabled which would be legacy IDE mode)Azalia codec set to auto (verus disabled)

Software :: CUPS - Print Jobs Shows Completed, But Page Doesn't Print?

Dec 6, 2008

I initially had a problem accessing the CUPS interface (see my other post) and got that resolved by adding the user "cupsys". Now, everything "looks" ok, and when I print a test page, it shows it as completed (in CUPS). However, the page never prints.
The printer is a Canon MP600 (using the canonmp600en.ppd file to configure it). Here's the output of my conf file.

Fedora :: Npviewer Segfaults - Firefox Sometimes Shows The Title Of A Page In A Tab But The Page Is Blank

Nov 23, 2009

On FC11 64 bit with Adobe flash plugin for Linux installed, I see segfault errors from "npviewer" in /var/log/messages. The only browser I have tried yet, Firefox, has glitches every now and then. Sometimes it shows the title of a page in a tab, but the page is blank. This can even happen when I try the Google main page. Is it true that npviewer has something to do with Adobe flash? Is there a way to fix the problem? If it is caused by Adobe flash, is there a different plugin that will replace Adobe flash player?

Slackware :: CUPS Print Jobs Print 1st Page OK, But All Others Are Overwritten?

Feb 26, 2011

Not sure when CUPS started acting up. I have the latest 13.1 current software installed.The first page to print is always OK, but all succeeding pages are overwritten. The second page shows the first page on top of it, and the third shows the preceding pages on top of it - and so on. Has anyone else seen this problem?I guess the printer buffer is not getting flushed correctly. If my configurations were trashed in some way, I don't know where to look for a fix.

Ubuntu :: Blank Screen After Login?

I have dabbled with Linux in the past. Previously I have failed to get various important parts of my laptop to work under Ubuntu, but that one died, so I decided it was time to try again.

It seemed to work on the liveCD, so I went for the install, which also seemed to go ok, but when I start up, I get to log in, then it stops. Plays the start-up sound, displays a blank desktop background, but nothing else...
