OpenSUSE Hardware :: System Won't Retain Display Size Setting In SAX2

Jul 28, 2010

System won't retain 16:9 display size setting in YaST (SaX2). I'm using SuSE 11.1 (64 bit).

SaX2 settings as follows:

Monitor is Samsung Syncmaster XL2370-1 (digital). Resolution is set to 1920X1080 (1080p). Diagonal measurement set to 23 inches. Display size indicates 509 m.m. X 286 m.m. (20 3/8" X 11 1/2").

Aspect ratio is entered as 16:9, but after saving and restarting computer it keeps coming back as 16:10.

Samsung literature says 16:9, and measurements above confirm this.

So why does it keep going back to 16:10, and how can I get it to retain 16:9? (Same thing happens on another computer, also running SuSE 11.1, and with a second of these same monitors.)

OpenSUSE Install :: Display Size Only 800x600

Aug 8, 2010

Continuing with my 11.3 install on an old Toshiba Tecra M1 laptop:

When i was installing, i had the options of 1600x1200, 1280x1024, 1024x768 etc.

I chose the 1024x768, because it fit the laptop screen perfectly.

But after the installation, the highest resolution i get is 800x600, and it's wasting a bunch of real estate on the screen.

I mean, if during installation it could do 1024x768, why not after the install? obviously the graphics card supported it.

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 - Setting Gnome Terminal Window Size

Feb 5, 2011

I'm using the Gnome desktop in openSUSE 11.3. I've set the "Command" to gnome-terminal --geometry=80x58 for the Gnome terminal in its Launcher Properties. This opens a terminal of the size I want every time I click it. However, when I right-click the desktop and click "open in terminal" it opens a terminal of a much smaller size and I can't figure out how to correct this. The same thing happens when I click:
File->Open Terminal from a terminal window, and also when
I click File->Open in Terminal from from the File Browser.
Why am I getting a much smaller window and how to fix?

OpenSUSE Install :: Wrong Display Size On Resume - 11.2

Aug 25, 2010

I installed opensuse 11.2 on ASUS R2E nicely It have a 7" touchscreen and works nice. The screen is correctly settled to 800x480 on boot however after a S2RAM it is reinitialized as 800x600. I made an xorg.conf with only one fixed mode on 800x480 but daesn't seems to be considered on resume. After cold boot sax2 get the right size (800x480) and after resume 800x600 The video chipset is intel 945 GM.

May this be related to hardware reinitialization ? How to re-initialize X on resume ?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 - Wrong Display Size Under VMware Server

Mar 20, 2011

Is there some better way of getting my display size set to 1280x960 when I launch openSUSE 11.4 under VMware Server? Here's what I've done so far: I am running Windows 7 on an AMD Phenom II system (motherboard: Gigabyte 880GMA-UD2H). I installed VMware Server (version 2.0.2) so that I can run openSUSE 11.4. The initial install went pretty smoothly. However, the display size was set to 800x500. I attempted to set it to 1280x960 by changing the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-monitor.conf file as follows:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Default Monitor"
## If your monitor doesn't support DDC you may override the
## defaults here
# HorizSync 28-85
# VertRefresh 50-100
HorizSync 1-10000
VertRefresh 1-10000
## Add your mode lines here, use e.g the cvt tool
Option "PreferredMode" "1280x960_60.00"
# 1280x960 59.94 Hz (CVT 1.23M3) hsync: 59.70 kHz; pclk: 101.25 MHz
Modeline "1280x960_60.00" 101.25 1280 1360 1488 1696 960 963 967 996 -hsync +vsync

This resulted in a display size of 1734x1342 (or something close to that). I noted from the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file that the vmwlegacy driver is being used instead of the vmware svga driver. There is a note that the vmwlegacy driver does not support the "PreferredMode" setting in the monitor section of the xorg.conf files. For the time being, I have set my horizontal and vertical rates to 60kHz and 60Hz, respectively. This does limit the maximum display size to 1280x960, but for all the wrong reasons. How do I set up my system to get the correct display size?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Display Setting For Two Screens ?

May 16, 2010

Not sure if I'm doing right to post this on this thread but I've got an issue with my laptop screen extension. I have plugged a vga monitor to my laptop for a right display extension. The idea is to put the right extension on the vga monitor but don't why the monitor is know my main screen and my laptop the extension. I have tried to change sides but the laptop is still the extension and not the main one as I want.

Is there a hard way to make this work?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 KDE Won't Save Display Setting

Nov 26, 2010

Installed 11.3 KDE today on an old Vaio desktop we were given (Duron 900Mhz, 512mb, 40Gb HD, SiS630 onboard video, Trinitron 15" monitor). Everything works fine except it will not save the 800x600 resolution setting. Every time I reboot it is back to 1280x1024 which it thinks is the default resolution. Any tweak to get 11.3 to save that setting?

OpenSUSE Network :: DISPLAY Variable Setting Over VPN?

Jun 9, 2010

I am connected to work via a VPN. I am logging into a Solaris box at work from OpenSuse 11, using ssh -X. I would like to start a GUI on the solaris box. The problem is that I don't know what value to give the DISPLAY variable. Is it the local internal LAN ip address, for my machine? I did try that, and I tested it using, xterm on the solaris machine. It says it can't open the display. I have enabled remote connections on my machine using xhost +.I have to run a performance test on the Solaris box at 7am in the morning... so need to find out how to start the GUI

Fedora :: Xsane Page Size Setting - Cannot Find A Page Size Anywhere In Any Of The Buttons

Jun 5, 2010

I have a Canoscan LiDE 30 scanner which works fine in Linux. I haven't used it in months, and never since moving from Jaunty x86_64 to Fedora 11 x86_64. This evening I suddenly need to scan two pages to send to someone via e-mail, and the recipient is desperate to receive them. Naturally, Xsane has decided this is the moment to screw me.

The problem: I cannot figure out how to tell Xsane that the page size is 8.5 11. It insists on scanning only the left side, 3.99 x 11. I cannot find a page size anywhere in any of the buttons.

In Preview I once got it to scan the entire page, but could not figure out how to save the image to file. Subsequently I have not been able to figure out how I did it. In any event, scanning from the small main window always scans 3.99 x 11. Adjusting the scan area manually in the Preview window allows me to change the size area in the small main window to 8.5 x 11, but when I then scan from the small main window it reverts to 3.99 x 11.

I have scanned the document a hundred times at least, each time trying different buttons, but nothing has succeeded in getting the full page.

OpenSUSE :: Setting The System Back To Standard KDE 4.6.0?

Jun 15, 2011

over here on my desktop I have KDE 4.6.4 running, updated from 4.6.0 through all intermediate steps. In the last few days I feel, that it got a bit unstable and I think, I have messed it up again, with doing some stupid things in the repository management. But of course, I don┤t remember what I did...

So I am asking myself, if I could reset the system to the state where it came from: KDE 4.6.0, including all the updates from the standard openSUSE repositories.

I would do it as follows:

1. deactivate the additional KDE repositories and X11 from OBS (I needed it for installing xbindkeys)

2. switch packages to the standard repositories, which came with openSUSE, and also switch the packages to Packman

3. run an update, or how it is called, the switch back to 4.6.0

would this work, or would I completly mess the system up?

I then would leave it like it is, with the only additional repo┤s: Packman

In System Settings under Appearance>Style>Fine Tuning tab there is the following setting for graphic effects. what it does and how it works because I don't seem to see any difference in the effect the settings have. By default it seems set to low display resolution and high CPU. This seems opposite to what one would expect it to be.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Dual Screen "SaX2 Doesn't Recognize Dell Screen" On 11.1

I have a Radeon Mobility M300 video card on an IBM T43 labtop. I have this labtop on a docking station connected to a Dell screen. SaX2 doesn't recognize my Dell screen, and so from the labtop commands I am unable to have the main screen on the Dell monitor and a secondary one on the labtop screen. I would like to have (if possible) my primary desktop on the Dell Monitor and the secondary one on the labtop screen.

OpenSUSE Install :: Format The Parts Including /Home And Retain The Win / NTFS Part?

Jul 17, 2010

Attempting install of 11.3 on previous 11.2 dual windows boot box. I want to format the Linux parts including /Home and retain the Win / NTFS part. (dual boot) Peculiar behavior of install DVD. Here is fdisk -l that clearly indicates a 500 GB HD and the Win partition, extended partition and the 3 basic Linux partitions and they seem okay in total.

Linux-mocx:/ # fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 500.1 GB, 500107862016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 60801 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x252d252c


I aborted the installation. What could possibly cause the 11.2 parts and bootloader to get this wacked up ? Outside of some sound issues the 11.2 install works okay for the most part. No crashing or lockups. Really want to get up to 11.3. though. I obviously have some work to do with 35 GB of missing space on the HD and Grub living someplace on the wrong side of the river. Suggestions and a pointer or two would be most welcome guys. ( I really don't want the pain of installing that ´┐Żother´┐Ż OP system or I'd reformat and reinstall nice and clean.) Do I need to repartition, change mount points and reinstall Grub maybe.

General :: Setting Size Of LVM Volume?

Mar 7, 2011

I am installing Ubuntu server 10.10 onto a machine with a 1 tb Hard drive. I have had a host of other problems installing but that is for another thread. My question here is that it takes so long to format such a big drive, and I have heard and read that LVM starts with a small partition and expands it as more room is needed. So the installer crashed and started over so this time I decided to choose 'Guided - Use entire disk and set up LVM' instead of just 'Guided - Use Entire Disk'. So it is asking me to set the size of the LVM Volume. Am I setting the size of the initial volume? or am I setting the max size the volume can expand to?

General :: Sudo Versus SU - SAX2 Command?

Jun 3, 2010

I've been using SuSE for a while and something has been bugging me. Not a show stopper, but nevertheless, an interesting one. Most tutorials, forum posts, etc. recommend using a sudo command to accomplish stuff. For example:

sudo make install
sudo vi file

However, this does not always work. For instance, I was recently working on a resolution problem with my ViewSonic VX922 - it would only display at 1024x768 rather than the native 1280x1024. Viewing some posts, I found the command "sudo sax2 -r". What I discovered is that there seems to be a big difference between sudo and su

drkhelmt@SPACEBALL1:">sudo sax2
root's password:
sudo: sax2: command not found
SPACEBALL1:/home/drkhelmt: #sax2
SaX: Checking update status for intel driver
SaX: initialization already done
SaX: cal [ sax2 -r ] if your system has been changed !
SaX: startup
SaX: X server:0.0-> grant
SaX: importing current configuration
SPACEBALL1:/home/drkhelmt: #

So the question, why does the command sax2 (and others) work when after the su command rather than a sudo?

Hardware :: Get A 21.5" Monitor To Display At The Right Size - Ubuntu 10.04?

Nov 29, 2010

After getting tired of squinting at my netbook screen (System 76 Starling) I bought a 21.5" Asus VE228H monitor. It works beautifully with the right resolution and aspect, EXCEPT that the driver Ubuntu is using is for a 22" monitor, and the image on the screen has about 1/8" missing all around. Sadly, this eliminates the menu bar at the top of the screen. Moving the image down doesn't help. Is there any way to shrink the image, or get Ubuntu to use a driver for a 20" or 21" monitor instead of 22"? I've been using computers since DOS command line days, but have been using Ubuntu only about 2 months.
