OpenSUSE :: After Installing KDE Gnome Lost Its Control Over Fonts?

Apr 5, 2011

I recently installed KDE (I was using GNOME). After that, I found for gnome applications, KDE font settings is applied even when I log in using GNOME. Whatever I do in appearance-fonts, all gnome applications follow the settings from KDE Personal Settings. (Application Appearance -> Fonts)

I lost all the subpixel hinting, and I finally just found out that if I set it in KDE Personal Settings it actually affects gnome applications. (I'm in GNOME now)

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 And The Kernel - Lost Control Of The Volume

Dec 2, 2009

I am having with my openSUSE upgrade.

I followed the upgrade directions, found here, precisely. However, I am still experiencing some unusual problems, some I think I have resolved, but others are leaving me puzzled.

Before I get to far into this, my working knowledge of *NIX platforms is decent, but I am no where close to expert or advanced.

Problem 1 - KDE Profiles (resolved)
The first problem I experienced was that my KDE profiles were all screwed up, buttons would not work, desktop icons were missing, applications would not start or would show horrid graphics, and the list goes on. Having run through a similar problem with FreeBSD, I decided to simply move my ~/.kde4 to ~/.kde4.orig and then do a forced reinstall of KDE4. This seems to have resolved the issue, I just have to recreate my profile, which should be relatively simple.

Problem 2 - Sound Driver
Shortly after my upgrade, I did have sound, but I had lost control of the volume. This is somewhat expected as with each Kernel update of Linux, I found I had to reinstall the sound drivers, Creative X-Fi. This never presented a problem as it was a 30 second process and very simple to perform (there were three commands, four if you include 'su -'). This time, I ended up running into an error, seen below:


This brings me to my third problem...

Problem 3 - VMware
Similar to the sound card, each time a new Kernel patch is applied, I have to recompile VMware Workstation 6.5 for it to work again. This is even simpler than the sound drivers as all I do is start VMware and it automatically recompiles. Now, when I go to start it, I receive the two following errors:

This appears upon trying to start VMware Workstation...

This appears when I click 'Install'...

Problem 4 - Kernel...
The previous two problems seem to be related to some underlying kernel issue that I have yet to be able to resolve. I have barely been able to change the error messages. So far I have forced a reinstall of almost everything kernel related that was already installed, plus I installed quite a few *-devel packages. I reinstalled 'make' and 'gcc' for good measure, but I am not getting anywhere.

OpenSUSE :: Add More Control Functionality Through Mouse

Mar 14, 2010

I used easystroke on ubuntu, and it worked well enough to be functional. I triend opening Xstroke in suse, but it just adds an icon down by the notification panel. right click and left click seem to turn it on and off, but i've yet to find any configuration menu of any kind. I've also found the 'input actions' section of the personal settings menu, but i'm having a hard time making heads or tails of it. Basically, what I need is pretty simple. I have a single application that I would like to add more control functionality through the mouse. I don't even necessarily need gesture control, in fact if i could just make my extra mouse buttons perform specific keyboard commands (F11, ctrl++, etc.) that would be fantastic. If I could set it to do different things on different programs.

OpenSUSE :: Severe GUI Mouse Control - KDE 4.5.x, 11.3?

Oct 5, 2010

My mouse and trackpad button control is severely impaired in 11.3, KDE 4.5.1 (or .2) using Compiz. Gnome works fine. XFCE has some problems. The mouse control of window features is sometimes limited to one window with the rest of the desktop not responding to mouse actions. Popping up a second window from an app causes the mouse control to be completely lost. The issue leaves KDE effectively broken having only keyboard control. With some ESC key hits and using right mouse button to close one app (from the panel), I can move focus to another app but mouse control within the app is non-existent. Moving windows or raising or lowering doesn't work either. Sometimes, the GUI captures the mouse click but does not recognize the active App and applies it to objects sitting on the desktop screen underneath.

I've reverted partially back to the 11.3 installation DVD then reload updates and then moved to stable release of 4.5, then went back to the 4.5 factory. All failed to correct the problem. I removed .kde/.kde4 files and this did not help. What is wrong with my system? Also installed the latest kernel of the repos then reverted back to [x64]. [very frustrating, been using Suse/KDE for >7 yrs, this one has me stumped]

OpenSUSE :: LXDE Control Center - Adjusting Mouse And Keyboard Parameters?

Sep 26, 2010

When I try to adjust the mouse and keyboard parameters, changes aren't applied. I adjust them to were I want to, click on accept, but then when I look on the settings again, they are set to default again. This must be some kind of bug. I already updated using the LXDE repository.

OpenSUSE Install :: Keyboard And Mouse Lost After Update - How To Boot In To Terminal?

Oct 15, 2010

I was working on something important in 11.2 and did a "zypper up" in the terminal in the background. I wasn't paying that much attention to it, I believe it was an update to 11.3. After returning to the computer after about one hour the windows were behaving strangely and the machine wasn't very responsive. I decided to reboot. Now at login I have neither mouse nor keyboard. I have switched the keyboard to PS2 model, no difference. If someone could help me with booting to run level 3 from the grub menu perhaps I could change some settings there to make everything work. I really regret doing the update. It would be very important for me to be able to get back in to machine with spending as little time as possible on this. Could I reverse the update? This machine is very important for me and my family for their daily communication, but currently I have very little time to fix this. My quick fix was to install Kubuntu 10.10 so I could resume working, but I would really need to get back in to 11.2.

Ubuntu :: Lost All Control Of Windows?

Aug 21, 2011

Suddenly, my windows have no borders, and I have little control of them -- no moving, minimizing, or maximizing. I can't access these functions because there is no bar at the top, but they also don't respond to pressing the Alt key. My mouse cursor is the generic "X" that XWindows starts with.

The obvious solution is to change my settings, but I can't: when I try to open window manager settings, the disk spins a little but nothing shows up.

Another solution would be to try a different window manager, but this fails on a different problem that I have been having for some time. If I log out and then click on my user name to log back in, nothing happens -- I do not get a password box, just the same user selector that I started with. I use Xfce and I don't know how to switch.

Ubuntu :: Lost Top Sound Icon & Can't Control Volume With Keyboard?

Feb 14, 2010

my issue is as my Title "Lost Top Sound Icon & Can't control volume with Keyboard" OS: Ubutnu 9.10 x64 - Karmic Koala Lost the Top Panel Sound Icon, I even go to: System > Preferences > Sound Message Pops Up: Waiting for sound system to respond

Funny thing I do get Ubuntu OS Audio sounds Now as well I lost control of my Volume with my Keyboard, pretty sure it has to do with the same Sound icon in the Top panel that is missing The only way I can control Audio is Manually using: gnome-alsamixer 0.9.7

It sucks big time, because I can't control my Audio when ever I need to mute it or upper/lower it through my keyboard fastly when needed. having to manually opening an application to be able to change/control the Audio volume is a huge hassle for me

Ubuntu :: Loss Of Desktop Control (mouse And Keyboard)?

Nov 2, 2010

In the past few days Ive noticed a lot of updates. Yesterday morning several times I went to click on items on my desktop and I couldnt. I thought it was just my batteries getting weak. Yesterday afternoon it got so bad I couldnt click on anything for hours at a time. I could only power offIve been reading lots of forums and threadsd there are lots of possible problems to this but they all come down to xorg file and usb issues.

An example of one possible problem: When I have the system log open I can not move the app around, make it bigger or smaller, I can only scroll on the right pane and have to use the mouse keys to navigate the left pane. And if I want to shut the app down, sometimes I can use the ctl+F to close it but sometimes I cant.After I shut the app, any app that is, the mouse pointer turns to |< and I cant click on anything for 5 min to 5 hours. It was suggested to run sudo dpkg �reconfigure �phigh xserver-xorg but when I did I didnt see anything visually or in the terminal occur.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Tvtime Freezes, No Picture, No Mouse Control?

Feb 11, 2011

I have been using Tvtime for several years and never had trouble with the video until now. Now it opens, but it's frozen. There is no picture and no sound, just a black screen that I can't control in any way. Even to close it, I have to go through the terminal.I can still get channels using Mplayer, so the tuner should not be the problem. However, t is an Hauppauge 950.I was using Lucid on both partitions. Initially, one quit,but not the other. About a month later the other quit while I was watching which makes me think it may be something I have simply hit on the keyboard. I have since upgraded to Maverick on one and reinstalled Tvtime to no avail

Fedora :: Use A Program That Uses Uinput To Inject Mouse Events To Control X Applications

May 21, 2010

In Fedora 12, I am trying to use a program that uses uinput to inject mouse events to control X applications. This worked with Fedora 9, but doesn't with Fedora 12. I see the following in my Xorg.0.log:

(II) config/hal: Adding input device Prototype IRPointer Device
(II) LoadModule: "synaptics"
(II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/input/
(II) Module synaptics: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
compiled for 1.7.1, module version = 1.2.1
Module class: X.Org XInput Driver
ABI class: X.Org XInput driver, version 7.0


The device is not a synaptics touchpad, and so the X load of the driver is incorrect. But I don't know how to get X to ignore it's own driver and use evdev. (Or even if that's the right thing.) A general explanation of how hal and evdev are related, for the current X server,

General :: Lost StartX - Black Screen With Active Mouse Cursor

May 25, 2010

Redhat Ent Linux ES Release 2 (Taroon 8)
Kernel 2.4.21-4.ELsmp
startx(1): initialize X session - Linux man page

I thought I'd look into methods of recovering from a lost password for future use, how to change the passwd and shadow should I need to. So I started an X session, vi'd my .swp files then logged off. Perhaps I changed one of these files accidentally, but my intent was just to view them which I did. After starting up my computer the next day and logging in I began an X session - "startx". The session appears to have started, but with a black screen and an active mouse cursor.
