this post started after i have googled around about 2h without solving my problem: the higher the resolution is i set to my opensuse, the greater the symbols and text-sizes of my windows will be (pictures follow).
i installed openSuse in my vmware Workstation tryed differnt screen-sizes. for example here is a perfect display quality with a res of 1024x768: but if i change the res to 2560x1600 i get really ugly results. is there a setting to avoid the resizing of windows like firefox or dolphin /fixing the dpi?
The quality of sound I am getting is very poor with lots of noises.I'm using openSUSE 11.4 on a DELL Inspiron 6400, and the sound is "82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller".I have tried removing pulseaudio but it did not change anything.I had no problem with the sound on 11.2 and the quality of sound is normal on Windows.
you can find a cutout of an output generated by "iwlist s" command for a cell. Does anybody know what Quality, Signal level and Noise level mean? What is the definition of them? I searched for it and could not find good information on it. What do these Extra:*** fields for? What does it show in the example above? How were those values computed?
I am trying to split a PDF into component pages that are of equal quality to the original. If I use display mypdf.pdf, then the PDF is split into pages of acceptable quality. The problem here is that I have to save each page individually. If, however, I use convert mypdf.pdf mypdf.bmp, I get the individual pages of the PDF in .BMP format (which is fine, but not exactly what I want), but the quality is substantially less than the original. I've tried dozens of combinations of commands to try to increase this quality, but to no avail.
Even if I do convert mypdf.pdf mypdfagain.pdf, there is a big loss of quality. Anyone familiar with splitting a PDF into individual pages without suffering a loss in quality? Ideally, I would just save all the "scenes/frames" from display, but that feature unfortunately does not exist (though I may endeavor myself to add it if no formal solution exists).
NOTE: I think part of my problem might be: by using identify mypdf.pdf I can see that the resolution is specified, and when I convert it the resolution is much lower. This could be a source of quality loss, but I'm not familiar enough with image conversion to say that for sure. Whatever this command does, it removes the extra layer or whatever it is that prevents OCR from succeeding. I'd really like to understand that technology.. What is it about a PDF that allows an individual to embed some meta-data into every page of the PDF so that the only thing seen, say, through OCR, or a text search function, is the embedded text?
how do we control the display color quality in Debian, similar to setting 16 bit or 32 bit in Windows? I have Lenny on a notebook and Squeeze on a netbook, but cannot find a menu to set it. They both have the default vesa driver.
I've probably exhausted all possible ffmpeg argument combinations for encoding with a libx264 codec - none worked, the codec always either segfaults or tells me incorrect parameters. I've installed, uninstalled and re-installed all available versions of the codec - no difference. Did anyone have any luck with it? Are there any tricks or conflicts in different arguments? Does the input file have to be in any particular container/format/codec for the x264 to work on?
My examples: >ffmpeg -i video.mpg -vcodec libx264 video.mkv >... Error while opening encoder for output stream #0.0 - maybe incorrect parameters such as bit_rate, rate, width or height >ffmpeg -i video.mpg -vcodec libx264 -b 4000 -s hd1080 -f h264 video.mkv Same error If I use any other codec, they all work fine. give a working ffmpeg arguments example,
I have an issue where under certain circumstances images containing yellow or close hues appear bright pink instead.For this to happen ALL 3 of the following must be true:
1. The image must be a PNG with a yellow, orange or a colour close to that. 2. View the image using a gecko based program (Firefox, Thunderbird) 3. Connect the monitor (Samsung Syncmaster P2250) to the graphics card (GeForce 8400GS) using the DVI cable.
JPGs always display correctly, the VGA port on the same card is fine. I can even have Firefox and Epiphany side by side on the screen showing the same url and Epiphany is fine. I normally use Fedora, however with an Ubuntu live cd the images are still pink if all the three criteria are true.
I don't have any other monitors or graphics cards to try unfortunately. If it were hardware, then why is Epiphany ok, if it were software then why does changing the connection to VGA make a difference?
I have fresh installation of ubuntu 9.10, my display preferences are incorrect and no more options to change refresh rate other than 75hz. I understand ubuntu has been targeted to notebook user this time but I am on desktop system with Intel Graphics and g33 motherboard and I want to know the procedure to configure xorg.conf for this purpose.
I'm looking for a way to change the balance of my audio in the terminal. (i.e. setting a different volume for the left and the right speaker).I can set the volume level for both channels at once with a command like:
I installed openSuSE 11.2 sometime ago in a COMPAQ Presario CQ60-419WM laptop (the ones that Wal-mart sold for $300 about a year-and-a-half ago. I installed the 64-bit version because I saw that the processor could support that (perhaps that was not a good idea). I have some problems that seem related to not having the necessary drivers. My wireless has never worked and my display is far from what I would like it to be (the response is slow, if a drag a window, its motion is jerky, if I scroll down in a browser window, the motion is wavy). The look and feel is very different from what I get at work and I do not know how to fix it.
Now that I have system-config-display installed I tried to create a new xorg.conf so I can have 3D acceleration, etc using the correct driver. But the xorg.conf file generated does not work. It locks up the laptop (Toshiba Satellite A45-S250). I don't understand why this happens because the Fedora 12 Live CD (for i686) works find on boot.
I tried looking for the xorg.conf file after booting the live CD but it doesn't exist. I don't understand what is happening here. Also, when I used an older version of Fedora (8 I think) the X driver was i810 which worked fine. It gave me all the 3D acceleration, etc. When I installed F11 it gave me a dumbed down install using the VESA driver. What happened to the i810 driver? Why does the intel driver not work? Why does the Live CD work great but an installed system not?
Necessary info: Toshiba Satellite A45-S25 Fedora 12 (preupgraded from F11)
I listen to some voice mail messages over the web. Firefox downloads the message as a ".wav" file, and then invokes amarok to play it.What I have been noticing, is that amarok seems to cut the message short.As an additional test, today after playing a message on amarok, I tried playing the same message with kaffeine. There was significantly more to the message when played on kaffeine. The particular message ended with the phone number I should call back (if I wanted to). None of that ending sentence showed in the amarok playback
I would like to plug my guitar on my pc and hear what I'm playing out of my headphones. I have not found out yet how I can enable direct output. Neither with Line-In, nor Mic-Input worked. Has anyone an idea how to enable it? KMix does not provide such a function as far as I know
I have a StarTech USB audio adapter which I have been unable to get output from in Suse. Pavucontrol allows me to adjust the output to this device, and even shows some signal when playing media. However, no output makes it to the headset/speaker jack of the USB device. There does not appear to be any issues with playing media to the internal sound card & speakers of the computer. I booted up a Live Ubuntu disk, the device was recognized, and output made it with no problem. This leads me to discount a hardware problem. I'm running Suse 11.4 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T420s.
Is there a way VLC to use vdpau as video output? Mplayer and Gnomemplayer can use it and the video playback uses as little as 2-4 % CPU power even on 1080p movies. Xorg and Kwin continue to use pretty much CPU power in video playback process , I suppose there is no way to limit them or there is ?

I'm trying to get the best performance/quality on my my 10.04 box and i have a few questions regarding 'sync to vblank'. My first question : I see 'sync to vblank' in 3 different locations.
- In compiz display settings - In NVidia XVideo settings - In NVidia OpenGLX settings What is the difference between the 3 ?
Second question : I used to have problems watching movies where the picture seemed to be cut in half ( i'm not a native english speaker so i don't know the technical term). After reading some forums, i enabled sync to vblank everywhere i saw it. That solved the movie problem. But maybe that was overkill ?
So i did some benchmarking and noticed the following :
When i disable 'sync to vblank' in compiz my compiz benchmark drops from 60 to 30. But then my movies look worse.When i disable 'sync to vblank' in NVidia OpenGlx my GlxGears framerate jumps from 300 to 36000.I didn't notice anything when changing vsync in the NVidia XVideo setting. System specs below.
I am running openSUSE 11.2 with an hda-intel sound card (dell latitude d830) in x64. Pulseaudio is only giving me a "dummy" sound card, even though volume in the yast sound configuration works. Volume is definitely not muted.Here is the requested info:alsa-info.sh:[URL]
Having some problems with HDMI-Audio on my HTPC: I don't get sound out of HDMI port! For system info look there: Sysprofile
OS is Suse11.3 64Bit with KDE now! At "System-Settings/Multimedia/Audio Output" there are the following devices in the given order: HDA NVidia (ALC662 rev1 Analog) HDA NVidia (ALC662 rev2 Digital) HDA NVidia, NVIDIA HDMI (HDMI Audio)
That's consistent with the connector layout of the mainboard. Playing "Test sound" while marked the HDMI Audio is not causing any output with HDMI, while analog works just fine!
I also installed the nVidia prop drivers with the packet manager. In YAST there is one card found in the sound section:: Idex=0 and Card Model=MCP79 High Definition Audio
Alright so I just upgraded my 11.3 x64 to 11.4 using zypper dup and have now lost the ability to play digital output 5.1. Before doing the upgrade I was running alsa rather than phonon but apparently the upgrade decided to enable phonon, and I no longer show digital surround output. The soundcard I have is a CM8738 and I am using the coaxial output on it hooked into my receiver. In system settings->multimedia->phonon->speaker setup the soundcard shows and I have the ability to select different profiles.
However the digital output settings only show stereo and the sound output device the only one listed is CM8738 Digital Stereo (IEC958). I have selections for analog 5.1 and analog 7.1 but neither put anything out of the digital connection. As I said I was running alsa before and was able to do straight digital pass through which allowed my receiver to do the decoding and use all of my channels. How can I setup phonon to use digital passthrough, or switch back to alsa and get that setup again.
I am runnin Ubuntu 9.10- the Karmic Koala on acer aspire laptop. since everythin in this netbook is crap. so I hardly can see movies that so much going on in them( when so much happens, the screen freezer for a while therefore i miss the most interesting bits) I used kinda every players. the only one that works for me is mplayer since it does not require high spec it works good but it has its own costs. if I use mplayer then i have the porblem of the sound (eg i can hear stuff before it happening) I am now just wondering if there is a way to decrease the quality. I really dont care if i have great quality or not as long as i can c whats happening ( at least for this netbook anyway)
I'm still new to Ubuntu and I'm trying to get the sound working. I have a Satellite X205-SLi1 and just installed Lucid. Everything is okay, except for the sound. My laptop has 5.1 harman/kardon speakers and I think just some of them are being used and the quality is bad. I'm not sure what to do...
