OpenSUSE :: Assign Virtual Desktop To Specific Dual Monitor?

Feb 21, 2010

I have 2 monitors. I'm using the Nvidia driver in Twinview Mode on the right side. I can move the cursor from one monitor to the next and I can drag applications between the two. I have multiple activities. And the second monitor selected one of those other activities as the background. I'm not sure how this was chosen, or if I have a choice. Anyone know? Do activities affect what is displayed in a dual monitor setting? As I toggle through the activities, the two monitors change, but never to the same one.

When I open an application, it's a guessing game which monitor it appears on. Can I control that?

I know if one clicks the top left corner of an application they can send it "To Desktop" ("all", "Desktop 1", "Desktop 2", etc). If I could assign "Desktop 1" to monitor 1, and "Desktop 2" to monitor 2, I could then use the "To Desktop".

At a minimum, how does one control where applications open in a dual monitor setting?

Debian Multimedia :: Assign One Virtual Desktop To One And Another Adjacent Second Monitor

Mar 24, 2010

I'm using kde 3.5.10 on a Debian Lenny with xorg from backports and nvidia proprietary driver (195.36.15) on my laptop. Nowadays I have received a 2nd monitor, end my purpose is to attach it to my laptop. TwinView or separate X screen work fine but clone or extended view modes for my mind are not so usefull. I think there is the possibility to assign one virtual desktop to one monitor and another adjacent virtual desktop to the second monitor. how to obtain this kind configuration.

OpenSUSE :: Force An Application To Appear On Specific Virtual Desktop?

Jul 11, 2011

concerning controlling the windows in virtual desktop.

a) Say to a application to be launched to virtual desktop 2 for example.

b) How can you ask from a virtual application to be only visible at one virtual desktop. For example I work on virtual desktop 6 and I want to start skype that should be on virtual desktop 2. Right now If I launch the app on virtual desktop 6 it will appear on the same one. Would it be possible to ask for an applicaiton to be launched on an other virtual desktop. If yew how?

Ubuntu :: One Virtual Desktop Per Monitor / Using XRANDR

Mar 14, 2010

I have two monitors, my laptop screen, and an LCD monitor. I want to configure linux to put one virtual desktop on one, and a second on another. I'm using Compiz as well, so I'd like it to show one side of the cube on each monitor. I'm not really sure how to go about setting this up though. My attempts so far have stretched the same desktop across both monitors, or resulted in an unusable monitor that just sits there with the default background. While I was trying to figure this out I came across something called XRandR that lets you connect/disconnect monitors without restarting xserver. I'm not sure how to get this going either, the only tutorials I found were for intel chipsets, and I'm using the proprietary NVidia drivers.

Jan 15, 2011

just setup suse 11.3 , put on the Nvidia 19.29-22.1 drivers via yast , no kms is set in inetd , nomodeset on grub boot line etc... Even tried installing the driver " the hard way " dual monitors come up, setup xinerama to "Extend" my desktop , and the main monitor ( right side ) is good, visually the left monitor (2ndary) is good.. but whenever I move my mouse over to the left screen the mouse pointer dissapears, flickers along the right hand border of that screen... and if i move the cursor back to the original screen i have to really fight to get it back to the main screen....Copy of my xorg.conf , still very basic...

Ubuntu :: 10.04 LTS - Dual Monitor Works Only Sometimes (ATI Multi-desktop)?

May 19, 2011

I've been using my laptop with an external LCD monitor attached to it at work (Philips 201E). And at home with a different external monitor (Samsung 2032BW). I have an ATI graphics card (HD3450), with Ati Catalyst drivers enabled and I'm using the Single display desktop (Multi-Desktop) seeting. At work I have the external monitor on the left and laptop on the right, while at home the other way around. So when I switch between the two setups, I just needed to go to Ati Catalyst Control Center, change the order of the displays, change the resolution (Home - 1680x1050, Work - 1440x900), reboot and it was all fine.

But since a while it doesn't work properly anymore:

At home it *still* works fine. At work it doesn't work. Sometimes it works for some reason, after a few resolution/setting changes in ACCC and reboots... it's very strange and annoying. Does anyone have any idea for fixing it? I've uninstalled and reinstalled the ATI restricted drivers and that seemed to make it work initially, but it still works just sometimes. This is my xorg.conf currently:

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "amdcccle Layout"
Screen 0 "amdcccle-Screen[6]-0" 0 0
Screen "amdcccle-Screen[6]-1" 1280 0
EndSection

OpenSUSE :: Opening Windows On Specific Monitor

Mar 28, 2010

I have a multi-head system (three monitors). Using KDE 3.6 I was able to specify that new windows were to open on the monitor on which the mouse cursor was located. I don't recall where the setting was configured but I can't find anything like it in 4.3. Is there somewhere I can set this option or is it no longer available?

Ubuntu :: Maverick (10.10) Dual Monitor- Desktop Bigger Than Screen?

Jan 20, 2011

Im running a wee Aspire One, 1024*600 with an external monitor 1024*768 (maverick desktop edition- 10.10) I have them set up independently, the external is to the right, and above my aspire. I have set this up in the monitors options. But it seems the desktop environment (although not the backgrounds) extend off to the right of my aspire (under the external) and to the left of my external- (above my aspire).

I know that it may be nit-picking, but it is a right pain when I 'loose' stuff on this phantom desktop space. For example- when i move my cursor into one of these spaces- and have to wiggle it about till it pops onto one of the screens. Also- i'd like my screensaver to pop up on both screens, and span them both- not just be repeated on both...

Ubuntu Networking :: Can't Assign Specific Static Ip

May 25, 2011

Using Ubuntu Server maverick here - after altering /etc/network/interfaces to use a static ip and checking /etc/resolv.conf (no alteration needed) no network services were working at all. Here are the contents of interfaces:

Code:
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.1.100
netmask 255.255.255.0
broadcast 192.168.1.0
gateway 192.168.1.254

I was fairly certain that this was verbatim from my previous server which is no longer attached to the network. After hours of fooling around with no success I changed the address to 192.168.1.99 and it worked perfectly. So my question is: why? My old server used 100. Could the router refuse to give a new server the same address or something like that since that address had been taken in the past?

Hardware :: Assign Mouse Buttons To Specific Task

Jul 14, 2009

Okay, I have been all over the web... all over JustLinux and pretty much spent several months trying to find one simple answer. How do I easily map two applications to my trackball?I have a Kensington Expert Mouse Model K64325. It has a scroll wheel, and 4 mouse buttons. I have used xev to figure out which button is which. The upper left = 2 and the upper right = 8. I want the upper left to open Firefox when I click it. I want the upper right to open REALBasic when I click it.I know this can be done (really easily too!) in Windows. I want to do it in Linux. Especially since I have several systems like this. Also I can then take what I learn from my own experience and start mapping OTHER people that are total Linux newbs, mice for them.

The mouse works great all I want are the two feature/options I just listed and I cannot find a single answer anywhere on the web that seem to address my question. SO I am hoping someone here will have a laymans answer.

Debian Configuration :: How To Assign Specific Local IPs In Home LAN Using DHCP?

Apr 29, 2011

I have some beginner questions about DHCP, Avahi, and configuring a small home LAN.Suppose I have a dynamic IP address assigned by my ISP, which requires DHCP be enabled in my dsl modem/router/"firewall" [sic]. Suppose for simplicity I have just one PC behind the dsl modem.I think "enabling DHCP" in the modem/router means that a DHCP client runs on the router, which communicates with a DHCP server run by my ISP when I boot up a PC on my LAN. Is that guess correct? Can I get DHCP to assign a particular local IP, say 192.168.1.10 (which is not the one taken by the router--- for this discussion, let's say that is 192.168.1.0) to my PC each time I boot it up?

Now suppose I want to build a stand-alone firewall, so that my LAN will have the firewall and the first PC behind the modem, with the first PC virtually behind the firewall. By default, I think these will both have DHCP clients running which I need to configure properly. The firewall should also have a DHCP server which should control how local IP addresses are assigned, correct? I should try to arrange that the LAN has only DHCP server, only one NTP timeserver, only one DNS nameserver, correct?My first PC seems to have installed an autorun client called Avahi, which performs DNS multicast services and incorporates something called zeroconf which seems to have something to do with remote desktops, which I don't need and which is a potential security hazard. But it seems that Avahi is an intrinsic part of the KDE desktop and cannot be removed. Just want to be sure that Avahi can coexist comfortably with dhcp3-client, which is also installed on that PC. They perform different tasks, correct?If I can get the stand-alone firewall to work, I know I need to turn off the commercial firewall in the dslmodem/router/firewall device. Should I purchase a bridge and try to turn off the routing function also?

Ubuntu :: Assign Specific Joystick Device Path To It / Controller?

Oct 13, 2010

Currently I have 5 HID's I would like to use on the system at any given time. However, I have the problem of them using different device paths depending on what order I plug them in... Which wreaks havoc on qjoypad and also my music software which looks for a specific device number, which may or may not be the same as it was last time.

For example, I have 2 rock band drum controllers which I use to send MIDI signals. I need them always assigned to the same device path, so that I don't have to change the settings in my music software every time I run it, to make sure it's looking at the right controller

Or if I am going to play games with a gamepad, but I also have the drums hooked up, the gamepad may be assigned to /dev/input/js2, so I create my qjoypad profile.... Let's say the next day I reboot with the drums not plugged in, the gamepad is now /dev/input/js0, and the qjoypad profile won't work because it is looking for that gamepad at /dev/input/js2... So I would either have to create a new profile, or hook the drums back up in the same order ... Or something

It's just a mess...

Is there any way to tell Ubuntu to say "/dev/input/js0 is always Playstation gamepad", "/dev/input/js1 is always drum pad 1", etc.?

Or some way to do away with /dev/input scheme altogether and somehow link directly to the name of the device?

Ubuntu :: Staticly Assign Device Names (/dev/sda, Etc.) To Specific Hard Drives?

Feb 20, 2011

This is one of those questions where I highly suspect that the answer will be something like ". . .just stinks bein' you, kid."My setup:I have Ubuntu 10.04 x64 (desktop) installed on a computer with a bunch of SATA ports, including one e-SATA on the backBecause of the way the hardware works with these ports, the *external* port is the first SATA port, a second SATA port inside becomes #2, and a cluster of four ports (that can be made into a (ahem!) RAID array become ports 3 through 6.

All ports are configured as SATA (PATA emulation)My boot drive is located on SATA-2 (the inside connector), a four disk "MD" raid array is located on SATA 3-6, and I have an external HD enclosure that I plug into the e-SATA connection.

With all six drives plugged in, they get ordered like this:
/dev/sda - External drive
/dev/sdb - Internal operating system drive (bootable)
