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?

OpenSUSE :: Apps Opening On Secondary Monitor Not The Primary Screen

Feb 9, 2010

I have openSUSE 11.2 KDE with NVIDIA drivers. I have a TV on the left and a monitor on the right. In the Nvidia drivers this has also been setup as stated. The TV is on position 0:0 and the monitor is in position 1920:0. The monitor has been ticked in the drivers as the primary screen.

My problem is that all application open on the secondary screen and not the primary screen (monitor) as I expect. How to the OS/drivers that will ensure that application always open on the monitor situated on the right are welcome.

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 Resolution And Font With Specific Monitor - Broken ?

Aug 4, 2010

I setup 11.3 on PC and Belinea monitor (troubleshoting monitor). Everything was fine but since I installed nvidia driver (via 1-click wizard) resolution and font-size has broken

So I plugg another one monitor - Samsung SyncMaster and reboot system. After boot-up resolution and either font size were OK. I was able to select correct resolutoion and font size wasn't so tiny like on Belina.

It's looks like OS 11.3 have problem with correct output on belinea monitor. Driver is installed correctly. I tried to genereate new xorg.conf .

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?

OpenSUSE :: Wine Not Opening Some Windows Programs?

Jun 17, 2011

Some windows programs won't run after I have installed them with Wine. They either won't run or they make the screen go to a black painting screen (screen goes black and you can paint over it with your mouse to make the desktop reappear). I have tried changing the windows version and made no difference. I have even tried opening it in a virtual window and made no difference (Window opens then closes)

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 - Macros Opening Separate Buffers / Windows

Feb 8, 2010

I switched from 11.1 to 11.2 last month. I'm now having a smoother experience with openSUSE, with some exceptions.

One is Emacs.
A rather annoying "feature" that has appeared is the following: When editing a LaTeX file, compiling it (C-c C-c, using AucTeX macros) makes the Emacs window become shorter by one line. The same happens if I switch to some other buffer. It does not happen if I switch back to the LaTeX buffer. So, after just a few editing/compiling/checking errors sequences I find the original window half of its initial size...

A similar problem occurs when editing IDLWAVE scripts (it's a proprietary scientific data analysis language widely used in my field, but still has its Emacs macros), but only if I open an interactive IDL-shell to run the script.

So, I imagine it's not a problem related to AucTeX, although it might be related to the macros opening separate buffers/windows (e.g.: error messages) associated with the current buffer. Also, the problem does not go away if I remove my own .emacs customization files. Checking the Emacs bug lists, it seems that there are some bugs related to window resizing, although I have not been able to find exactly the same problem I am having. But, before reporting this one, I'd like to hear from fellow Emacs/openSUSE users. Just in case I'm messing things up somehow.

Currently using: Emacs v 23.1.1
Some more info: Dell Precision M65 portable workstation, NVIDIA Quadro FX1500 using the binary NVIDIA driver). Using OpenSuse 11.2 + KDE 4.3.1

Ubuntu :: Opening Specific Applications On Corresponding WorkSpaces?

I have a lot of application scheduled to load at startup (GoldenDict, Tomboy Notes, Evolution Mail, Liferea, etc.) and I'd like some of them to appear on the workspaces different from the default. I have Ubuntu 10.10 with Gnome and Compiz effects. Is there a way to do this without a lot of mess?

Ubuntu :: Opening Many Programs And Placing Them In Specific Monitors / Workspaces?

Jun 16, 2011

I am fairly new to Ubuntu and was wondering if anybody knows of a way to open up a number of programs and placing them in specific spots programmatically. Basically, I'm trying to avoid having to open my IDE, multiple terminal windows, browsers, etc... and then having to place them all in the exact position I want when my machine boots up. Ideally, I could say:Program A, is placed on Monitor 1, workspace 1, at position 0, 0, with height and width 600 x 400. Program B, is placed on Monitor 2, workspace 2, at position 600, 500, with height and width 1000 x 600

Fedora :: Preventing Apps From Opening On A 2nd Monitor?

Mar 15, 2011

I have a 2 monitor configuration, with the second monitor uses exclusively for mythtv. When I'm not actually watching tv or a muvie or watching visualizations with music playing, I actually use the machine for more productive uses. As the result the second monitor is typically not turned on, might have something to do the the fact it's a crt design, consumes a fair bit of power and does a good job keeping the media room overly warm.

The question is, does Fedora 11 or newer have a means to prevent applications from opening on the second monitor? I've checked the obvious places and nothing jumps out .

btw: According to the nvidia x server settings control panel the second monitor is set up as in twinview mode. This mode was chosen to allow the gpu to do most of the video decoding tasks using vdupau or something as I recall.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Launch Application In Specific Monitor?

Aug 24, 2010

I have a laptop running Ubuntu hooked up to a TV via a VGA to S-Video converter with the VGA-out through an external monitor, and I am trying to find a way to set vlc or mplayer to open fullscreen in the external monitor by default. Eventually I want to be able to hit enter on a video file and have it play on the TV without any dragging to the external monitor. I have googled around a bit, checked the monitor settings options, and looked through the media player options but so far can't find anything.

General :: Finding A Traffic Monitor That Only Counts In A Specific Wireless Network

Jul 28, 2011

I need a simple traffic monitor for Linux, that counts the traffic in a specific wireless network because I have volume restrictions on that one.I tried it using the following iptables rule:


iptables -m mac -A INPUT -p all --mac-source <mac-address> ! -s

where <mac-address> is the router's one. is the local subnet. What I actually want is something like --routed-through <mac-address>. Also, is there some way to gather iptables's statistics? Or is there maybe another tool that does what I want (reliable)?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Triple Monitor Setup: X Crashes When Moving To The Second Graphics Card (third Monitor)

Oct 22, 2010

This is a triple-monitor setup with two video cards, where the mouse pointer gets "stuck" if it tries to cross from one video card to the next one. It worked correctly in openSUSE 11.2 and doesn't work in openSUSE 11.3 with the same xorg.conf. This is a 64-bit openSUSE 11.3 with xorg 7.5-11.3 (the openSUSE prepackaged version). I've already tried NVidia drivers 256.53-16.1 (the openSUSE NVidia repository version) and 260.19.12 (the latest off of the NVidia website).

This is the same xorg.conf that I used successfully in openSUSE 11.2. I tried a new automatically generated xorg.conf using nvidia-settings and it had the same problem. This forum won't let me upload the relevant files, but here: [URL] is a tar-ball with my xorg.conf, Xorg.*.log, /var/log/messages, and the NVidia debugging output.

Ubuntu :: Opening New Windows When Starting Opera ?

Feb 11, 2010

I have switched to Opera because my Firefox eats my CPU and makes everything go slow (it even makes my music lag!) when I have a few tabs open or try to scroll on a fairly big site with pictures and flash stuff.

These problems are completely gone with Opera, but I would like it to behave more like my Firefox does. I use multiple workspaces all the time, so it really bugs be when Opera insists on opening new tabs in the window already open in another workspace. That takes away some of the point with multiple workspaces, if I need to drag opera along all the time. Making it show in every workspace is not an alternative, since I try sorting different tasks to different windows.

What I tried was to add the -newwindow flag to the opera launcher. This works, but however, I have to open the first tab manually (duh!) which is kind of unnecessary.

So how do I make Opera open new windows WITH a tab when I use the opera shortcut launcher? And if someone could throw in how I can make a startpage open instead of the ballot screen, it would be nice!

Ubuntu :: Fire Fox Opening Multiple Windows

Feb 18, 2010

Im having a problem with firefox. I left firefox running overnight yesterday only to wake up to a totally unresponsive karmic. Everything was frozen and i couldn't get anything to run. I restarted the ubuntu and everything seemed to be ok until I tried to open firefox. Almost immediatly the first window opened it was followed by what looked like fifty more. It kept opening windows until ubuntu crashed. I restarted karmic again and did a couple of google searches using opera and found out that it might be a adware problem. I have thought of getting rid of my cookies but i do not know whether that will help.

Ubuntu :: Simultaneous Opening Of Firefox Windows ?

Aug 14, 2010

I am using the latest version of ubuntu(10.04 LTS) Desktop edition 32Bit. My problem is, after I open the firefox browser for first time after booting, a chain of new firefox windows start opening one after the another. In a matter of few minutes, there are like 15-20 instances of the browser opened.

I reinstalled the OS, but it is happening again and again. Is there some flaw in OS, something related to OS not compatible with my computer or some problem with the keyboard where some key(combination) is in a "press" mode (however, I dont see that happening on Laptop, the keyboard looks fine, plus Windows XP is working just fine).

This problem is forcing me to spend a larger time on Windows (which is bit cringy, after you get used to Ubuntu!).

Specs: 1Gb Ram, Centrino Duo, 1.88 GHz

Ubuntu :: Natty - Windows Not Opening Completely

May 3, 2011

I am having the following problem, and it has been persisent over several distros.

Often, when presented with a nautilus window, and asked to drill-down to select a file, the window will not completely open, leaving the 'Open' and 'Cancel' buttons invisible below the lower gnome-panel. I will then have to click the maximize button, to get the window to fill the screen and make the 'Open' and 'Cancel' buttons visible. This also seems to happen with some of my apps...

For instance, I never have this problem with Firefox, but I always seem to have it with Ubuntu-Tweak, and some other apps. This 'appears' to be happening randomly, although it could be related to 'inode-meta-data' about the window state not getting updated.

Ubuntu :: Compiz - Opening All Minimized Windows In Taskbar?

Is there is a way in compiz to open all the minimized windows in the taskbar? Since I want to use the "scale" feature in compiz for all of the windows. As what you already know is that, the "scale" feature only works for the open windows not the minimized ones. So I want a way to open all the minimized windows with a shortcut(using compiz or any thing else) and then use the scale feature again.
