OpenSUSE :: Erratic Window Behaviour

Feb 7, 2010

I am having a problem with how my windows behave.My windows will maximize and minimize over and over, scroll bars will scroll to the bottom/right automatically, if I click a menu it will pop up for a fraction of a second and then go away. It makes my desktop almost unusable.I can't figure out if this is a mouse or video issue. I have a radeon 9500, and a logitech LX3 optical mouse. BTW, this problem is present in other distributions on my system. I am running KDE. It even does this on the livecd.

I'm running various ubuntu guests but I had a question about Lubuntu. How or where do I change the default behaviour when I dbl-click the title bar in LXDE? Right now it maximizes/minimizes the window. I would prefer it roll up/down.

Ubuntu :: GNOME Window Darkening Behaviour / How To Turn It Off?

Apr 5, 2011

GNOME has a feature where it darkens windows when the program is hung up on a calculation (I think this is the condition under which it darkens anyway.)Not sure what this feature is, but I want to turn it off. Don't know how to go about this, as I don't even know what the feature is called. Anyone know how to turn it off?(It tends to darken a program I use when the program is actually not getting hung up in any appreciable way.)

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Synaptic Touchpad In 11.3 - Strange Behaviour With Dragging And Middle Click

Jul 19, 2010

One strange and little annoying issue I notice with my openSUSE 11.3 installation is my Synaptic touchpad behaves way too strange.... Dragging a window or icon - half way around - a click is generated (probably a middle click I guess) and I need to re-drag it again.... In the browser when I try to select a text - again by dragging - a middle click gets generated... The same happens when I use gvim in visual mode too - I end up pasting the code I had selected halfway because of the middle click....

Middle click can be generated only if I press both left and right click buttons - which I'm pretty sure I'm not.... I tried playing around with the touchpad settings but no good.... I'm not able to find anything related to the middle click on the settings application... My touchpad works fine in Ubuntu and was in 11.2 as well.... Yes it works fine in Xp too.

OpenSUSE :: "monitor" The Firefox Application Behaviour?

Apr 13, 2010

Is it possible that Firefox (downloaded via yast from OpenSuse repository) recently has been equipped, infected with a BACKDOOR, TROJAN HORSE?

1. As long as i only startup Firefox everything is ok.This seems very logical, cause the firewall shuts out all incomming trafic.

2. As soon as I enter an url, and the internet page start to appear on screen, the **** happens...When receiving a webpage, the firewall allows incomming traffic over the HTTP connection from the webserver BACK into my computer..

3. Then..within 3-5 minutes, without touched my keyboard or mouse,my harddisk is starting to get VERY busy. It looks like someone is remotely searching my harddisk for something

This "very busy harddisk-search behaviour" misteriously disappears again when i close Firefox!

Additional Information: I use the following firefox-plugins

- Noscript,
- Flashgot,
- SEO Doctor 1.0 <- switched off
- Wedeveloper 1.1.8 <- switched off


How can i "monitor" the Firefox application behaviour?Is there a way to "look under the hood" to see

- What Firefox is starting up on childprocesses?

- Which activities are being done by which application, task, daemon on my harddrive during this "strange behaviour?"

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 X86-64 New Install - "jerky Mouse - Choppy - Randomly Freezes Erratic"

Jul 28, 2011

Environmentopensuse: 11.4 x86_64 new install
qemu-kvm install
input devices: PS/2 Mouse, EvTouch USB Graphics Tablet

If I just take the mouse and scroll left and right over the desktop, the mouse is "jerky, choppy, randomly freezes, erratic". It occurs all the time. Trying to be more focused and select an object is challenging.

/var/log/messages shows: kernel psmouse.c Explorer mouse at isa0060/serio1/input0 lost synchronization, throwing 1 bytes away Don't know if it is related, but in "Personal Settings" -> "Input Devices" -"Touchpad", there is a "Warning: Touch pad configuration is not supported on this system. ..." I have another virtual machine with the exact same setup running openSUSE 11.2 x86-64, kernel, and the mouse is not "jerky", but I have no wheel support. Comparing logs and config they look alike. I turned off all desktop effects.

Ubuntu :: Erratic Images In Top Panel

Sep 1, 2011

Does anyone else experience this phenomena? It only happens on one of my PC's, my Compaq Presario M2000 laptop.The icons for various applications in the top panel load eratically on boot up. E.G sometimes the wireless icon doesen't appear , sometimes it loads twice. Sometimes the Sound Preferences (the speaker icon) is missing, Evolution Mail etc etc. Even the shutdown icon occasionally is gone. It sees limited to the ones on the right side and doesn't seem to affect ones such as Firefox that I've dragged up there myself. It doesen't happen every time, I'd say about 20% of boot ups this happens.

Ubuntu :: Slow/Erratic Scrolling In Chromium?

Apr 23, 2010

I just upgraded from 8.04 to the lucid beta (yes I was slow to move on that), and chromium's scrolling is HORRID! It jumps and skips both when I use the mouse wheel or when I drag the scroll bar.

Any ideas? Firefox scrolls just fine. It makes using chromium very unpleasant because any time I have to scroll I feel like I'm back in 1992.

I did some searching and found lots of complaints, so I thought I was close to an answer until I looked at the date, it was late 2008/early 2009 when this was an issue.

Ubuntu :: Erratic Write Performance On USBs

Sep 12, 2010

I've been having some problems copying files to USBs. If I'm copying a large (100MB+) amount of data, at random points the transfer will just stop for 30+ seconds before continuing. Sometimes it doesn't start up again at all. Consequently, the write speed drops to less than 1MB/sec, sometimes as low as 100 KB/sec. I do not have these problems on Windows 7, where I achieve speeds of ~16 MB/sec easily. I have had the same results with several USBs (2-32 GB) on several file systems (fat32, ext2) with several different computers running fully patched versions of Ubuntu 10.04, which suggests the problem is related to the way the OS accesses the hardware.

Ubuntu :: Extremely Erratic RAID 5 Performance

Jul 16, 2011

I built a RAID5 storage array using 'mdadm' on 3x WD Green 1TB hard drives. I used the Disk Utility GUI to create the array and it took about 24 hours to build. When I started copying files to it I noticed it performed at decent speeds for a while, then got really slow, the sped back up. Just for laughs I ran the Read-Only Benchmark function in the Disk Utility and got a graph that would even confuse stock brokers.Any thought on what the issue might be? I tried searching around for an answer, but most people are only affected by wirte performance issues not reading.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Erratic After Motherboard Upgrade / Fix This?

Mar 6, 2010

I upgaded my system last weekend with a Gigabyte GZ-X58A-UD5 motherboard, i7 processor, ASUS EAH5770 video card, and 12 GB RAM. Sound has been erratic since then. It generally works for a short time after a reboot, but after awhile (within a few hours) it stops working properly or even completely. I've tried several different settings in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, but nothing I've tried helps.

I am running Kubuntu 9.10 64-bit.

Here is the output of aplay -l code...

I don't have anything connected to the HDMI connection on the ATI video card, and only inputs on the M Audio Delta 44 card.

wired is fine and fast. Wireless connects but connection goes from 100% to 53% at random, making the connection pretty pointless to use.Probably get fixed in an update. I have tried uninstalling network manager and using wicd. No luck. Well, luck, as in I could connect, but exactly the same as Network Manager.The card is a Realtek RTL8191SEvB. Machine: Toshiba Satellite Pro L510. Any takers? Would really like to get this happening as everything in Maverick is working great apart from it.

Ubuntu :: Erratic And Random Character Cursor Jumping

Dec 20, 2010

I have a dv7-4172us laptop from HP, a new laptop. It has AMD Phenom II N950 -64 bits processors. I am running LiveCD version 10.04 LTS 64 bits in "Try Ubuntu" mode. If I type type fast, the character cursor (not the mouse pointer ) moves away randomly, like a few rows up from present typing location. Sometimes, something else, like another application scrolls it self while I am using Gedit to type this posting. the cursor jumps here and there. Typing on this forum page also produce the same erratic cursor jumping problems!

I also disconnect my optical wireless USB mouse, and still have the same erratic cursor problem. I do not have the ANY problems with Win 7 -64 bits. This is a serious problem. It will render any laptop useless with Linux I so look forward to using Linux.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lucid Upgrade; Have Sound But Erratic Volume?

May 16, 2010

Upgraded via Update Manager from 9.10 sound-previously-working-just-fine-system. Now, for example, running any audio-producing app (Rythmbox is a good example but its the same for anything including out of a VirtualBox XP install or with MythBuntu): The main volume control functions, but goes from muted to full volume in just 4 steps; raising it higher has no effect. It gets stranger: in Alsamixer or gnome-alsa-mixer I can see that lowering the desktop volume control to mute causes Master, PCM, Front, Surround, Center, LFE, and Side all to go to zero. Raising the desktop control one step causes all of these but Front to go to 100% instantly. Increasing the desktop control by a few more steps causes Front to step to 100%, after which no further volume increase is perceived. It's as if each step in the desktop volume equals some 25% of the Front setting, and 100% of the others. The audio setting in System, Preferences, Sound, Hardware is "Analog Stereo Output."

If I click 'Mute' on Master in the mixer then all the speakers mute, but unmuting Master does not unmute anything else. Only after I move and release the mouse-down state from the master volume do the other channels unmute. The volume control in Rythmbox, on the other hand, works seemingly correctly (maybe its going thru Pulseaudio?) And as an aside, why are there no controls for Pulse if it sits on top of ALSA?

I'm really confused by this, as all of it work as "expected" while running 9.10. Here is some output from this system (an ASUS M4A78T-E):

Ubuntu :: Sidebar Thing Very Erratic - Move Mouse To The Left Edge Of The Screen - It Doesn't Always Appear

May 3, 2011

I'm not sure what to call the semi-transparent sidebar with a random collection of unconfigurable icons, but I don't think it's working properly.

1. When I move my mouse to the left edge of the screen, it doesn't always appear. Sometimes I have to move my mouse back and forth, back and forth, several times.

2. What it's doing right now is even worse... it appears, but as soon as I move the mouse a *little* bit to the right to actually click an icon, it disappears.

What is causing this? Surely it's a bug? How do I make the sidebar the absolute top priority for the screen edge so that it always catches it and appears? how do I configure it? I can't right-click on the sidebar itself. I can right-click and remove some icons. Other icons, like the grayed-out (but still active) "recent files" thing cannot be removed.

Ubuntu Servers :: Odd Character Set Behaviour

I'm running Ubuntu Server 10.04. I run a perl script from the command line to pull a text field from a mysql database which contains some UK pound symbols (�), and it displays the result fine.I have created a web page that pulls the same information from the database and prints the result to a log file. Instead of UK pound symbols I get ax3. This is causing me a lot of grief and am unsure of how to go about fixing it

General :: Weird Backspace Behaviour On Shell Sometimes?

Jan 4, 2011

I use bash shell and sometimes all of a sudded, my Backspace key stops working (when this happens Ctrl + Backspace still works fine) I am not sure why this happens, but it also carries over to any vim sessions that I use from the shell. To my surprise, getting a fresh shell does not help, and the problem seems to go away as abruptly as it started.

This is what the typed characters look like, each Backspace keypress is shown by a ^? on the shell

Ubuntu :: Custom .Xsession Behaviour Not Normal?

My problem is, when I start my custom xsession through startx I get almost ideal results; the network manager requires a password every time. But when it is run through gdm I cannot use any of the awesome3 hotkeys (and so alas, cannot actually do _anything_) although the wireless does connect automatically (?).

Fedora :: Different Behaviour When Invoking Gedit From Root Terminal

Nov 27, 2009

Every time I invoke gedit from the root terminal I get:-

[AnOther@FSLServer ~]$ su
[root@FSLServer AnOther]# gedit

(gedit:6447): EggSMClient-WARNING **: Failed to connect to the session manager: None of the authentication protocols specified are supported

followed by 33 occurrences of:-

GConf Error: Failed to contact configuration server; some possible causes are that you need to enable TCP/IP networking for ORBit, or you have stale NFS locks due to a system crash. See [URL]. (Details - 1: Failed to get connection to session: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.)gedit opens fine but it seems really odd. My exposure to linux is not vast but this has never happened before Fedora12 It doesn't happen if I just use the terminal as an ordinary user.It also has nothing to do with the Bad & Ugly Gstreamer plugins as this happened from the moment the system was installed from the DVD and before the plugins were loaded even after removing them and rebooting I still get the ream of GConf errors if I start Gedit after su,

General :: Is Mouse Wheel Behaviour Of Mac OS X Or Linux Possible In Windows?

May 10, 2011

In Linux or Mac OS X, every window I hover over registers mouse wheel events without being the focused window. For instance I can have two windows open at the same time and scroll in each one of them without clicking either of them first.Can this behaviour somehow be translated to Windows? Is there a tool or a hidden preference that I can set?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Configure Behaviour Of Totem Plugin?

May 8, 2011

I am using the following:

ubuntu 10.04 LTS
firefox 3.6.17
totem 2.30.2

As it stands, if I play an mp3 file via the web, firefox will launch totem which will in turn launch goom.

Looks nice, but I would like to turn off the Visualisation which takes up the entire CPU. I try under firefox preferences, Edit->Preferences->Plugins, there isn't anything there I can change.

I try under firefox Utils->Plugins and there isn't anything there I can change.I try using gconf-editor, there are different settings there I can play with like: Under /apps/totem/visual it has the setting "GOOM: what a GOOM!", I try and delete it, it doesn't change anything.

Still with gconf-editor I try changing /apps/totem/plugins/screensaver turning the setting of "active" to uncheck. No change, goom still comes up with the fantastic graphics I just don't want. Still with gconf-editor I try changing /system/gstreamer/0.10/default/visualization from "goom" to blank. Again, no change.

If I look under the process list while totem is running goom I see the following: /usr/lib/totem/totem-plugin-viewer --plugin-type cone --user-agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; fr; rv: Gecko/20110422 Ubuntu/10.04 (lucid) Firefox/3.6.17 --referrer http://blah blah blah blah.mp3 --mimetype audio/mpeg

There doesn't seem to be anywhere I can change the command line which is being passed to totem to make it behave differently and turn off the goom visualizations. I have tried starting up totem as a stand alone application, there I go into Edit->Preferences->Display and make sure the choice for "Show visual effects when an audio file is played" is unticked. That gives me the results I am after for totem as a stand alone application, which is no Visualizations whem audio file is being played BUT It makes no change for totem running as a plugin in firefox.
