OpenSUSE :: Screensaver In The Desktop Settings Crashes?

Jan 29, 2010

My screen saver crashes.Even trying to look at the screensaver in the desktop settings crashes.The crashhandler says "This backtrace appears to be of no use. This is probably because your packages are built in a way which prevents creation of proper backtraces, or the stack frame was seriously corrupted in the crash. System configuration startup check disabled.

Apr 13, 2011

I always tried to neglect it, but it is really annoying! Whenever my PC goes toscreensaver, after unlocking screen (I set it to unlocked without asking password) compiz crashes and I must run it again using Alt+F2 and typing "compiz".My system is Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. I already have 10.10 on my laptop, this is my desktop and I don't want to install 10.10 on it. I prefer the LTS for use on my desktop.I tried several screen saversAnd ..., and I need compiz, I can not live without that!

Fedora :: Screensaver Ignoring Configured Settings?

Dec 22, 2010

I am using F14 installed from DVD, updated to the latest bugfixes for all packages; I also have the nvidia proprietary drivers installed.I have configured my gnome-screensaver using gnome-screensaver-preferences to have a delay of one hour before it blanks the screen. However, no matter the settings I choose (even testing with only a 1 minute delay) the screensaver always kicks in at the 10 minute mark. This persists no matter the graphics driver I use.The only means by which I can stop the screen from locking while watching videos online is to kill the gnome-screensaver daemon.What information should I provide to assist in determining why this is happening? It's very aggravating. I'll include my current xorg.conf in the event that it may help.

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 Crashes Very Often When Change Desktop Background?

Aug 14, 2010

It has been about a month since I installed openSUSE 11.3 (64bit, Gnome), and overall it is better than 11.2, but I have had some stability issues that I did not have with 11.2.

1. openSUSE 11.3 crashes very often when I change desktop background. I haven't experiment with it but it happens with downloaded images.

2. Changing monitor environment makes openSUSE to freeze. Fresh boot with external monitors connected usually works, but plugging & unplugging monitors usually makes openSUSE freezing. (I have to force power down)

3. Suspend makes openSUSE freeze a lot. Usually one suspension works, if I re-suspend it, it usually freezes.

I was wondering if these are common with 11.3 or I'm the only one who is having this.

OpenSUSE :: Plasma Desktop Crashes After Update?

Oct 22, 2010

I'm running SUSE 11.3 32-bit and have run into an issue with the KDE Plasma Desktop crashing after login. I've submitted a bug report with the KDE folks, but thought it might be OpenSuSE specific. Details from the my KDE bug report [URL].. is as follows:

Application: plasma-desktop (0.3)
KDE Platform Version: 4.5.2 (KDE 4.5.2)
Qt Version: 4.7.0
Operating System: Linux 2.6.34.7-0.4-desktop i686
Distribution: "openSUSE 11.3 (i586)"

Information about the crash: What I was doing when the application crashed: After updating my OpenSUSE 11.3 32-bit workstation to the latest (as of October 22, 4pm EST) available here:

OpenSUSE :: Plasma-desktop Crashes On Login?

Dec 16, 2010

I had openSuse 11.3 KDE4.4.4 installed and used the 1-Click install to get the nVidia drivers. However, this gave me the problems with Amarok and other applications crashing. I switched the system repos to use packman but that didn't help.

The solution on the forums seemed to be either recompile with an old nVidia driver or upgrade to KDE4.5 as most people were reporting to not see it under 4.5.

Upgrading seemed to be the easiest method, especially as there appeared to be a stable repo now.

I upgraded and now plasma-desktop crashes on login! Is getting the old nVidia driver my only option now?

zypper lr -d

Code:

# | Alias | Name | Enabled | Refresh | Priority | Type | URI | Service

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Extended Desktop - X Crashes On 11.3

Sep 2, 2010

I am trying to get an extended desktop (laptop monitor + extra) on my OpenSuse 11.3 system (64). I use kde 4.4.

It used to work on my OS 11.0. Here is the deal now:

- I use NVIDIA G2 driver from the OS repositiory
- laptop screen works fine, including compositing, 3D etc

I run nvidia-xconfig to generate an xconfig file. Everything still works fine (even after x reboot):

Code:

Next I login as root and open the run nvidia-setting program. There the second monitor is detected. I enable it as extended desktop and check: enable Xinerama.

I reboot.

Problems:
- compositing is off, I cannot enable it
- if I move my mouse cursor to the second screen, it only stays there for a second and vibrates enormously.
- if I use a window on the 2nd screen. X crashes

Things I can add/remove from the xorg.conf?

Now the xorg.conf is as follows:

OpenSUSE :: BOOM And My Plasma Desktop Crashes And After Refreshing It

Apr 16, 2011

I'm running OpenSUSE 11.4 (i586) with KDE Desktop 4.6.0 "release 6" on my IBM ThinPad X40. And I have trouble with getting new plasma widgets by internet. To be more concrete, every time I try to install new widget (first I want to view details of that), so when I'm pushing on blue button called "Details", BOOM and my plasma desktop crashes and after refreshing it generates the dump file for reporting to developers.

As this is quite an annoying bug, I've decided to report it, so I've installed all the necessary debugging tools, generated the complete bug report and sent it to KDE team. After this, I've got mail with link on KDE bug tracking system [URL] and found a lot of people being in the same trouble. So, one guy - Dario Andres (I think he's from KDE team) says: "The bug and the fix are in "libattica", may be your version of that library is not the latest. (or there wasn't a release including the fix)" and though after his comment there's a dozen of other replies with the same problem, all of them are marked as the duplicated bug and has no answer.

Well, even I know that my operating system is always up to dated, anyway I've checked that library version on my computer:

giorgi@linux-oary:~> rpm -qa|grep libattica
libattica0-0.2.0-5.1.i586

And I've double checked on the Internet and this is the latest version of this library. So, it's obvious that this BUG 261530 has not solved by this library.

OpenSUSE Install :: Seemingly Random Crashes On A New Desktop Running 11.3

Sep 9, 2010

I got a new desktop and figured this would be a great oppurtunity to update to 11.3 (from 11.2) while migrating files.. However I have had lots of problems with it, right of the bat. My first installation got messed up right after it was done, so I had to redo everything. Now the system boots up all fine but I am experiencing crashes every once in a while. By crashes I mean nothing works; the system monitor graphs freeze, the clock freezes, system doesnt respond to key strokes. The only remedy is then to "force an unexpected reboot" (ref: IT Crowd). I have a feeling that it has to do with Yast or something related to Yast, as it is the only common denominator between the crashes so far. However the system doesnt crash everytime I start Yast so I cant really say anything conclusively..

I have also realised that when I attach a secondary screen the graphics get kinda screwed as well.. if that makes any sense... Here are my system details: Dell Vostro Desktop with Core i7 64bit processor

8 x 2.8Ghz
6gig ram
graphics card: GeForce GT220

What could be the problem here? btw let me know if anyone wants to see logs from /var/log/messages

OpenSUSE :: Nvidia Settings Hangs - Whole Desktop To Freeze For About 5-10 Seconds

Oct 28, 2010

Sometimes, running "nvidia-settings" will cause the whole desktop to freeze for about 5-10 seconds, spike the Xorg CPU usage up to 100%, until the settings appear where everything goes back to normal.

Running "nvidia-settings" from a terminal does not show any output and restarting X does not help. Any ideas how to figure out what is happening, any places to look for log files?

I am using an up-to-date openSUSE 11.3 (64-bit), KDE 4.5.2, an NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT and the proprietary NVIDIA driver 260.19.12, which I installed manually following the instructions from

OpenSUSE :: Display - Desktop Appearance And Theme Settings Not Working

Aug 14, 2011

I've been trying to get familiar with this over the past 24 hours or so. I assume I've been somewhat successful in what I'm attempting to do, as I can work my way around a bit now and use some terminal commands. However, there is this display problem I seem to be encountering with certain windows which is extremely putting off. When I click options like 'File' or 'Edit' in a window, this is what I get. Here are the screenshots below.

This is what I get when I click the 'Volume' button in the Panel at the bottom of the screen. I have tried changing the Desktop Appearance Settings, Theme Settings but nothing seems to work. Although this is not a performance issue, it is hampering my vision of the various available options, and I would like to resolve it at once.

OpenSUSE :: Change Gnome Desktop Icons Back To Previous Settings?

Jan 15, 2011

I have recently played around with Mac4lin a program to change the interface to one that resembles a Mac computer. I did not like the settings then decided to uninstall the program. It reverted to a really ugly looking gnome desktop rather than my previous settings. One thing that I don't like is that I have a foot icon on my gnome traditional menu button on the panel rather than the green ball type icon I used to have. I know it's not the end of the world that my icons do not look like it previously did, everything else is running smoothly, though I'm just more annoyed than anything else.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Keeping Nvidia Settings - Can't Get My Wallpapers To Fill The Desktop

Mar 11, 2010

I have read and read and googled for my specific problem and nothing exactly matches. I have a Nvidia 8400GS, running SuSe 11.1, kernel 2.6.27.45-0.1.1,, Nvidia Drivers 193.5, KDE 3.??. It seems like about every third or fourth time I boot up I have to rebuild and install the Nvidia drivers (the hard way). When I get up and running again, use the Nvidia Control panel and save the settings to Nvidiaxxxxxxx.RC file. Why does this keep happening, any suggestions or threads that might answer this problem?? Also I can't get my wallpapers to fill the desktop, they are tiled sometimes and I can't change them. One other thing is I am having trouble with the screensavers, they won't start, and I like to delete some of them?

Ubuntu :: Locked 'screensaver' That Shows The Real Background / Desktop ?

I need a locked 'screensaver' that shows the real background/desktop (icons and open windows) so that my boss can see what I was working on, but my peers can't mess with it. All the Ubuntu screensavers as far as I can tell either manipulate pictures or do some 3D/2D graphics.

Slackware :: KDE4.4.5 Crashes When Starting Language Settings In Systemsettings?

Dec 3, 2010

I am trying to switch to KDE4.4.5 on my main machine. I installed the KDE packages and also the german language file. Everything works fine except the language settings. When I try to start it crash and a KDE crash dialog opens that gives this "developer information":

Code:

Application: System Settings (systemsettings), signal: Segmentation fault
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/gdb/auto-load/usr/lib/libgobject-2.0.so.0.2200.5-gdb.py", line 9, in <module>
from gobject import register

[code].....

It works on my netbook. I run on both machines Slackware 13.1. The only difference I can think of is that KDE was pre-installed on my netbook and I just upgraded it. On my main machine I installed all packages except the packages of kde and kdei.

Ubuntu :: Install WINE Screensaver In Gnome-screensaver Possible?

May 19, 2010

There's an OSS screensaver on windows that I love called PixelCity (links:blog post, github). it's pretty cool. and it runs fine on my Ubuntu (Karmic 9.10) with wine.Is there a way I can tell the gnome-screensaver about it so I can use it as one of my screensavers? I'm still fairly new to Gnome and the whole "screensavers as themes" thing is still confusing me.I've found my themesdir and tried to create a .desktop file for it, but obviously I've gotten something wrong as it just doesn't show when I open the screensaver prefs dialog, no error, no message, it's just not there.

Installing the xscreensaver packages added the extra screensavers I was missing, and I'm a pixelcity away from perfection..Of course the perfect solution would be if someone ported the screensaver natively to linux, which shouldn't be too hard as the source is open, it already runs on openGL and tries to confine most windows stuff to a single file. But I don't know C++ or 3D code or win/linux internals so I wouldn't know where to start..

I have a triboot windows suse 11.3 stable and suse 11.3 factory pc, I would like to share the browsers and email settings between the suse stable and factory, I succeed with thunderbird and firefox moving the /home/.thunderbird and /home/.mozilla in an ext3 shared partition and linking these in the respecive /homes, I found that there isn't a /home/.chromium folder, I found probably /usr/lib64/chromium could be the same as /home/.mozilla for firefox, but I don't know if is secure or can damage my system to move this in a ext3 partition and then link this to the respective /usr/lib64/chromium, /usr/lib64/chromium has root owner, root group, visible and modifiable for root and only visible for group and other.

Hardware :: Desktop Environment "shifts" After Screensaver?

Nov 23, 2010

My wife would like to wipe her computer and "start over." She's had XP on it for years, but to my delight she asked if I could try Ubuntu and see if it would work. I tried out the Lucid Live CD and everything worked well, except for this one problem.The entire GNOME desktop environment was shifted "downward." I could not see the bottom panel, and the top panel was unusually "tall." I had to click above the "Applications" menu to actually display the drop-down menu.I changed the screen resolution, which fixed the issue. I changed it back to the original setting and everything was normal.When the screen goes blank or to a screensaver, however, the problem returns.I'm not sure I can provide a screenshot as this is all from the Live CD.
