OpenSUSE :: 11.4 Gnome 2.3 Display - CRTC Error That The Display Is Over The Maximum - 1920x1920

Apr 16, 2011

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.

OpenSUSE Install :: Maximum Number Of X Display Failures Reached?

May 4, 2009

I tried ubuntu for a few weeks, but I couldn't get the nvidia drivers to work, I tried everything. So, I got sick of that, and went to download OpenSuse, which seems to be even nicer (..... ) I downloaded the 11.1 liveCD (gnome) from here. I nicley got the welcome screen, and the option screen (liveCD, check errors etc.). I chose LiveCD and it started booting, I got the splash screen with the loading bar, and after it completely loaded, the screen turns black with a lot of messages and at the end:

GdmLocalDisplayFactory: Maximum number of X display failures reached: Check X server log for errors.
Great, I hoped for better luck after Ubuntu..
My sys. specs:
Asus F3Sc 32bit
Intel CentrinoDuo

OpenSUSE :: Opensuse 11.4/gnome - Most Gui Apps Not Working With Gtk Error - Cannot Open Display: ::1:1.0

Jun 22, 2011

I recently installed opensuse 11.4 on a remote server. It has GNOME installed as a desktop. The problem I am experiencing is that when logged in through VNC, most of the GUI apps are not functioning, especially ones that require root privs. Example: The Add/Create users context does not function. After you supply root pw, nothing happens. If you launch it from a terminal, you see this:

jjmuw@g01:~> xdg-su -c /sbin/yast2 users
Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display "::1:1.0".
No protocol specified
No protocol specified


(y2base:4872): Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: ::1:1.0

Followed by a hang. This is also affecting things like the Xen configuration contexts (creating/managing VMs).

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.

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.
<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.

Debian Hardware :: Can't Display Maximum Resolution

Jun 29, 2010

I have a brand new computer with an ATI Radeon HD5850 video card I have a LCD monitor with a native resolution of 1920x1080. I installed Debian Testing 2.6.32-5-amd64

Because I have several machine, I use a KVM (switch keyboard) in the middle. This KVM is quite old but still work correctly only problem is that it don't forward the EDID information. Until now it wasn't a problem, and by specifying the correct parameters of the monitor in /etc/X11/xorg.conf , I always succeed to reach the 1920x1080 resolution

In installed the proprietary drivers from ATI Catalyst 10.6 (last version)

since I have 2 problems :
first in the console I used framebuffer in 1280x1024x32. Before installation of the ATI drivers, it was ok, now the screen is completely black !! on every tty (I didn't investigate much on this trouble yet)

Second problem:
I can't reach the native resolution of my monitor ! No matter what I'm doing, the best the driver propose is 1600x1200 !!

I made a lot of test and modification in xorg.conf but without success, it always goes back to this resolution and never propose something higher For information, if I connect the monitor directly to the video card (removing the KVM), everything is OK and the resolution is automatically set to 1920x1080

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "aticonfig Layout"
Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Wrong Buttons Display (11.4 Gnome)

I have just installed openSUSE 11.4 a few days ago, and added nvidia propietary drivers.

After that, buttons that are selected are with two white lines. One on the top, and one on the left. I don't know what is it all about, but I think it may be nvidia's problem.

OpenSUSE :: SSH / X11 On 11.3 - Error: Can't Open Display: Localhost:10.0

Sep 25, 2010

I was trying to remotely log in to my desktop which uses 11.3 from my laptop via ssh. For some reason I get an empty field for the command echo $DISPLAY. and as a result an xclock command results in error: can't open display. I tried to set it to localhost:10.0 and I get: Error: Can't open display: localhost:10.0

I've tried :0.0 and I get: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keyError: Can't open display: :0.0 ssh used to work about a week ago before I performed various security updates. I was wondering what' the solution to this. I checked the /etc/ssh/sshd_config file and ssh_config file both have X11 forwarding on. Can anyone with more experience out there give me any ideas?

Fedora :: System-config-display Just Ruined Display?

Jun 29, 2010

I did not have any /etc/X11/xorg.conf, so I read on these forums that system-config-display would create one for me. I ran system-config-display and it created an xorg.conf. But now my display is all messed up!! So, I deleted the xorg.conf and nothing changed. Why on earth would the display still be messed up if I deleted the file that was causing it?? Does system-config-display change somethign else?

Ubuntu :: Different Gnome Sessions For VNC Display?

May 31, 2010

i have tightVNCserver running to provide me with a means of working on my machine whilst the wife watches mythTV on the (physical) display.

in 8.04 i used to have "gnome-panel &" as a line in my /home/mike/.vnc/xstartup file, and it worked fine, when i logged in via VNC i had a nice gnome panel to start apps from etc.

since 10.04 this stopped working and i had to change gnome-panel to gnome-session. this works... but now it loads everything up in the VNC window just like it does in my main window. this is a problem because it loads things like mythTV front end and so on... i don't want it to do that in my VNC window.

does anyone know how it might be possible for me to have two different 'types' of gnome session? Settings i change in System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications are common to both my VNC and my physical displays so i can't turn off mythTVfrontend in there to solve the problem.

i'm not sure why gnome-panel stopped working in my xstartup file, but it happened when i upgraded from 8.04 to 10.04. if i try it in the ugly xterm window on VNC i get:


Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":1.0".

** (gnome-panel:26161): WARNING **: Cannot register the panel shell: cannot connect to the session bus. the RANDR stuff i get when i launch gnome-session too so i think its the second bit that's the real problem.

General :: Display Backup Files In Gnome?

I'm using gnome. I created some text files. After I change something in myfile.txt there's myfile.txt~ automatically created as a backup. Ok... now, on KDE I see these ~ files and I can delete them if I want but they're hidden in gnome... Gnome seems to treat them as special hidden files (just like .mydir directories) How do I make ~ files visible in gnome so I could edit or delete them?

Ubuntu :: Gnome Screensaver Locks Up Display

Dec 25, 2010

Dell PoweEdge 1600SC
ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro 256MB PCI graphics adaptor
Ubuntu 9.10 "Karmic Koala"
Linux 2.6.31-22-generic #69-Ubuntu SMP Wed Nov 24 08:51:08 UTC 2010 i686
ATI fglrx drivers
Set up for dual-head display using two Princeton 19" monitors
Using the Gnome desktop and screensaver

At some point, I suspect since the last kernel upgrade, I've begun experiencing a problem when the screen locks: I tap a key on the keyboard and the monitors wake up, but I get no "unlock" dialog. I can usually Ctrl-Alt-F1, login and gracefully reboot the system, but sometimes I have to hit hard reset. For now I've disabled the screensaver in "System -> Preferences -> screensaver" (I assume that'll stop the problem), but that's not an optimal solution.

Ubuntu :: Login Using The Old Gnome Display Manager?

Jul 30, 2011

Ok, I've tried Unity for awhile now and I can say it lacks a couple of critical things for me. First is launchers, second is a task bar. While casually browsing the web is ok, more serious work involving several windows has become a pain.

I have a dual screen with four virtual desktops. I'm tired of searching for my windows.

Now, I've read in a few places that I just need to choose "Ubuntu-classic" whenever I boot my machine. This is fine, but for the fact that I don't have any options on my login screen... Just the login and the accessibility & power buttons at the bottom right.

How can I log in using the old gnome display manager?

Ubuntu Installation :: Error Booting 9.10 - Failed To Restore Crtc Config

Mar 3, 2010

I'm trying to boot Ubuntu from a LiveCD in a computer I recently bought that currently has Windows XP on it. The Ubuntu menu comes up when I boot but it always snags on an error "failed to restore CRTC configuration -22" or something like that, and just goes on ad infinitum.

I tried running Linux Mint too and had the same problem, which makes me think it's an issue with the computer itself - which is an Averatec, if that helps.
