OpenSUSE :: Stopping The Screen Saver And Stopping The Screen Locking?

Jan 23, 2011

In December I finally filled up my root partition and broke Suse 11.1. I therefore resized my partitions and installed Suse 11.3 on /root. I didn't not touch my /home partition.

I notice that when I leave my machine and come back the screen has locked. I have tried to turn off the screensaver, but it hasn't worked. I have Googled, but unfortunately the screen shots don't look like what I have and the instructions to stop this do not seem to match what I am seeing on the screen.

Is there a way to do this via the command line?

Ubuntu :: Boot Hangs On "Stopping Save Kernel Messages" Or "stopping System V Runlevel Compatib?

May 16, 2011

Boot of a new minimal system hangs on "Stopping save kernel messages" or "stopping system v runlevel compatibility". I have ubuntu minimal iso x86_64 from usb stick created with unetbootin (don't have a cd drive on the machine in question), and after that I didsudo aptitude install gnome-terminal network-manager-gnome gdm geditsudo rebootnever got a system back. Annoyingly I can't boot into the recovery mode either, and it seems the keyboard is only semi-responsive (i.e. many dead keys when at the grub menu).qualms about reinstalling, but I've done this a few times and ended up at the same place every time.

OpenSUSE :: Printing PDF's And Stopping The Printer?

Jun 4, 2011

I'm having trouble with printing a PDF that is in landscape mode. When I tell Okular or Adoble Reader to print a document in landscape mode, the text is Illegible. If I tell it to print as portrait mode, then I can read the text but the end is cut off and there is no way for me to tell Okular or Adobe Reader what the margins are. That option was grayed out.

I'm having another problem: When I cancel the job from the CUPS interface, it says it canceled the job but the printer keeps going and finishes whether I want it to or not. With 11.2, I was able to have it set up so that when I told it to stop the printer, it did so right away. Why can't I get the printer to stop in the middle of a job if I see something wrong with it so that I don't have to waste ink?

OpenSUSE :: Debugger Exits Without Stopping At Breakpoints?

Sep 14, 2010

openSUSE 11.1
KDevelop 3.5.5 using KDE 3.5.10 "release 21.12.1"
gdb 6.8.50.

Problem: When I attempt to debug my program with breakpoints set the debugger does not stop at breakpoint. Message in gdb window is:

/bin/sh -c libtool gdb .../C++/Graphyxs/debug/./src/graphyxs --interpreter=mi2 -quiet
(gdb) set print static-members off
(gdb) Process exited

Attempted fix: Some forum posts suggest KDevelop upgrade. Upgraded from 3.5.4 to 3.5.5; gdb upgrade not available in openSUSE.

Other posts recommend assurance that debugger options are properly set. KDevelop Project Options has Compiler Flags -O0 -g3 with "debug" configuration.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.1 - X Server Not Stopping On Init 3

Nov 1, 2010

I'm running openSUSE 11.1. When I'm in Gnome or KDE or any Desktop session, the X server keeps running when I do an init 3, (i.e.) I'm still in the GUI instead of going to the console. When I type runlevel it shows that I'm in runlevel 3, but the X server is still running. The X server is not getting killed on an init 3.

Software :: Using Windows Screen Savers - Using .scr Screen Saver Files

Dec 22, 2008

I've been a Linux user for years but just recently I decided to take the plunge and use Ubuntu Linux as my primary OS (with Windows on the side for any games that don't run well in CrossOver Games).

Anyway, one thing I was curious about was whether or not I could get some of my Windows screen savers to work on Linux. Specifically I had been using "Blue Screen", a cute little ss made by SysInternals that emulates various versions of Windows BSODs.

The file comes as a .scr file (like all Windows screen savers). I wanted to know if there was any program that converted .scr files into Linux compatable screen savers. If not, that's still OK as I've now been rocking "Electric Sheep"!

I'm running Ubuntu Linux 8.10 on a HP DV9000 with an 1.7GHz Intel Centrino Duo processor, 2GB ram, and an nVidia GeForce Go 7600 graphics card.

OpenSUSE :: Diabling Screen Saver While Streaming Video

Jun 29, 2011

I'm wondering if there is a method for leaving the screen saver set to appear after, say 4 minutes, but to NOT have the screen saver activate during a streamed video. For example, any time I wish to stream a video through Firefox, I must open screen saver settings and deactivate. I was wondering if there is some way to maybe lower the priority for the screen saver below Firefox or Flash player, etc. Or if there is another work-around that is simpler than monkeying with the settings every time.

I haven't noticed this problem when using media players to mount local files, such as vlc. I'm running 64-bit KDE 4.6.4 Tumbleweed (from 11.4), FIrefox 4.0.1, Linux x86_64. Last 'zypper dup' was done yesterday, 6/28. Sorry if I forgot any important info.

Slackware :: KDE 4.4.5 - No Lock Screen - No Screen Saver

Aug 23, 2010

What happens is that I resorted to deleting my .kde directory after my kid destroyed my profile where title bar, menu, konsole get broken. After deleting, I login again thus regenerating the .kde directory. To avoid my kid from messing my desktop, I tried to lock it. It does not lock.

It just need a KDE full restart perhaps since when I login the other day, it now works.

I'm updated to Slackware current for almost a month already and have not played a lot on KDE desktop (busy programming stuff).

However, on day I tried to lock the desktop in KDE to avoid the kid from destroying my cool desktop setting, but it didn't lock. Cool, so I tried screen saver and add an option to lock the screen.

When I test screen saver, it displays. But when I wait for 1 minute(I set it that way), it doesn't fire up. Not even after 15 minutes which I think the default.

It usually work before (several months ago) using the lower version of KDE. It is just last Saturday that I noticed it.

I tried to dig the profile management but I could not find anything relevant there.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Low Level Power Management Screen Saver Removal

May 28, 2010

I run V11.1 on a minimalised install on a stick with TWM, no KDE at all but I cant get rid of the screen shutdown after about 20 minutes. Also I have several other boxes with v11.1 with KDE and still cant get rid of these screen shut downs.I dont believe this is coming from the bios in these machines. they are all Intel D945 MBs with some sort of Nvidea cards.

My app normal runs with no user mouse or input and is pocessor intensive.I would like to retain the power shutdown and reboot capability from comand line.I realise its not as simple as pulling symlinks of of the init levels in the new complicated distros, but I was suprised the non kde twm install still shuts down the screen.So I want a low level level fix that will remove anything kicked off by init that will derate the system performance or turn off the screen.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Logging Out Of The Xserver Without Warning After Screen Saver Mode Or Lid Closed

Oct 8, 2010

One very specific issue regarding KDE in OpenSuse 11.3

- when I close the lid of my laptop or get into a screen saver mode, sometimes when the xserver comes back to life it basically goes back to the KDE login menu (log out) without any warning...

I have looked at the detailed settings and power performance management but nothing there.... I am in fact in "don't do anything" mode (power management) but this does not seem to do much.

Debian :: Rc.d Permanently Stopping Processes ?

Feb 21, 2011

I will be switching to Debian soon and have been forming a large script with a vbox test system to automate my system configuration when I switch.

When I install lamp (Or basically it's equivalent packages) apache and mysql start up automatically.

I could just use update-rc.d to remove the autostart but whenever there's a security or feature update for the package the files get replaced.

In addition, for some reason the system thinks it's a good idea to autostart half a dozen apache2 processes at the same time, sucking up a good 150Mb ram when not doing anything. (Anyone know why?)

How would I stop my system from doing this? Could I "chmod 000" the /etc/init.d files?

Ubuntu Servers :: Stopping X From Autostarting?

Feb 15, 2010

Ok so I just installed Ubuntu server 9.10. It started out as cmd line only, I ended up installing ubuntu-desktop package from apt ran startx, and from that point on when ever I start the server I get the gui login screen instead of the original cmd line prompt. Now Ive been surfing around the net trying to figure out how to get it back to the original cmd prompt login screen, I really want to use startx when i need a gui.. the main reason I installed this package is really for all the libraries that it contains as i will use a few programs (firestarter, powertweak etc) that use a gui and I figured to make my life simpler i would just install the entire gnome desktop package so i will have everything i need when i try to run these misc programs (most of them will be run thru x11 forwarding as this server will only have internet and power plugged into it) Ive tried disabling gdm startup Ive even removed the /etc/init.d/gdm file all together and it still starts X (i moved it to /usr really but it should(?) work the same as deleting it). there is no other desktop manager to my knowledge (kdm etc).

Ive tried rcconf it says gdm is disabled (i tried disabling it before removing gdm from init.d and nothing), I went thru trying to disable anything that has to do with xserver so far I have only found x11-common I dont think it starts up x but i disabled it anyway. Ive also tried "update-rc.d -f gdm remove" that doesn't do anything either seems no matter what i try i cant stop the gui login screen from popping up.How do i get it to start with the original cmd prompt login?? i am considering reinstalling to get it back but i will lose all my work and that will defeat the purpose

Ubuntu :: Stopping Gdm Crashes System

Aug 21, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.04.1 yesterday, and I've been trying to install my nvidia 240 drivers for it. I've done this multiple times on 9.## and it worked fine. When I try to install them it says i need to shutdown xserver. so I open terminal and type sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop screen goes blank and all there is is a flashing _ at the beginning. I'm not able to anything except type, but no commands work.

So, I tried starting it up in recovery mode root shell or whatever, and it shows the command prompt. Then I login, and it says welcome, I go to my downloads folder and type sudo sh and it says I need to be in telinit 3, so I get out of the installation and type sudo telinit 3.well that brings me up to a login command so I type my username then it askes for a password, which I also fill in.Now it says incorrect login. So I try again, and it keeps going on, but then I noticed that it puts the first letter of my username infront of Password.And the only way I can get out of that is by Alt + Ctrl + Del to restart, same when I shutdown gdm.

Hardware :: Audio Stopping In Ubuntu 9.10

Mar 31, 2010

I've got a bit of an intermittent issue with my audio in Ubuntu, which i run into when i'm listening to podcasts. As i'm listening to podcasts in google reader, it will suddenly stop playing. After this happens, nothing in reader will play anymore, and things from ..... will play only video, no audio.

While this is happening, I can play a pod cast in totem movie player in mp3 format. This'll work fine for a while, but eventually the audio will stop, forcing me to push play and then look through the pod cast looking for where it was when it was stopped.

It's pretty annoying having to reboot 2 or 3 times a day to get my sound working in firefox. I have to reopen all my applications and projects every time.

Also, I noticed this line in my /var/log/messages file.

Mar 30 17:10:06 jimbo-desktop pulseaudio[1781]: alsa-mixer.c: Your kernel driver is broken: it reports a volume range from 6.00 dB to 6.00 dB which makes no sense.

I'm just not too sure with the linux audio systems.

Software :: K3b Stopping During The Verification Phase?

Apr 13, 2010

I've been plagued with this problem for weeks. It finishes writing the DVD but after it ejects and reloads, it doesn't go through the verification process. Yet I never fail to hand-verify the DVD using 'cmp'.

In this case today I created a multi-directory DVD and had an .iso image made first. It's still sitting there in /tmp (with a backup copied to /opt so I can close out k3b). How would I verify the .iso against what's on the DVD? How does k3b do it? Hopefully this means a command line solution.

BTW what are the command line apps for burning and verifying a DVD? I'm not so hot on graphical apps for this task anymore.

it writes

rather than

it's as if asctime adds to the end.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3: "screen Saver" Locks Session Even Though Disabled?

Aug 19, 2010

On my 11.3 desktop I was annoyed by what I thought was the screen saver locking my session after an idle period, requiring my password to unlock. Well, I didn't want this behaviour and it wasn't supposed to do that, I had disabled every place in the desktop configuration that seemed to be related. I even looked into the KDE4 rc files with a text editor and they all seemed to be in order.

Eventually after some searching I found the answer: It's the setting "lock screen on resume" in the advanced settings > power daemon. Once I turned it off, it was fine; this desktop doesn't need suspend+resume anyway.

It seems that this is not a case of counterintuitive naming; it seems that in some configurations there is a bug where a stray event can trigger a screen lock by the powersaved (?). I don't really understand it, but you can start your investigation here if you are interested:
