OpenSUSE :: When Started Configuring VNC It Appears That Tightvnc Is Installed By Default?

Jun 13, 2011

I recently installed opensuse 11.4 having come from 11.1 and when I started configuring VNC it appears that tightvnc is installed by default. I enabled remote administration and open firewall ports in YAST and found that the tightvnc viewer connects to my server ok. I do have a couple problems though;1. the password I set up when manually launching vncserver for the first time is not requested.2. When I launch a viewer connection it appears that an existing session is not being connected to since I log in as a user through the typical suse login screen and when I exit the session, all terminals and apps launched during that session are ended. On my 11.1 installation, after exiting a session all work was persistent and not ended.

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 32 Bit Is Installed With Nspluginwraper By Default - Why

Jul 7, 2010

I Wonder why nspluginwrapper is installed on a 32 bit openSUSE system by default. It does not cause too many problems but at least the xine-browser-plugin and the acrobat reader plugin seem to work better without it. I thought the only reason for nspluginwrapper was to run 32 bit plugins on a 64 bit system, but then why does a 32 bit version even exist?

OpenSUSE :: Installed Ok And X Configured KDE Desktop With Default 1024x600?

Apr 1, 2010

I've had a go with a netbook and 11.2. Installed ok and X configured KDE desktop with default 1024x600.

Minor. Most apps on running fit between top and panel but then you run their menu item like 'settings' or 'prefs' and its window size is coming up >600 in height. Some allow a scrollbar on the right but for those not, the result is not seeing the 'ok, apply, cancel' buttons. I did find that changing certain font sizes under System Settings both up and down and re-logging in sorted that for most.

If you click the top-left icon on a window you get to the special window settings and can see and change the geometry. However, for some that didn't respond to the font change above and seem to be hardcoded geometry-wise for a 1024x768 minimum, the result is a "squashed" window. Certain button options seen in the normal window are not there or the items are overlayed on each other.

Specific is Okteta the hex editor.Major. I don't use a wheelscroll mouse on other pcs. This netbook has a trackpad with the rightside 7mm or so having a scroll facility. In editor or Firefox running a fingertip on it will scroll the pages which is nice instead of looking and clicking in the scrollbar.

What is NOT nice, I found, is that if the cursor arrow is over a desktop patch and my finger hits that 7mm part of the trackpad when I want to move the arrow, it results in switching between desktops. I wondered what the hell happened when the apps and console I had up disappeared then reappeared then.OK this is the wonderful KDE4 where you can do anything and customise as you like. Well no, not about this. Funnily enough it shows up in the KDE handbook help about being an option in the desktop numbers section but of course isn't there. A fallback entry from previous help version it seems.

I've seen, and have some to make of, the general KDE4 crits but this one's a real WTF. So desk users with a wheelmouse doing some critical reading of some file or webpage could have that rudely interrupted just because their hand moves inadvertently? OK, maybe I should direct at KDE people, but is this fixable in the supplied 11.2 KDE4 or later KDE4.x ?

OpenSUSE :: 11.2 TightVNC Server Immediately Disconnects?

Mar 17, 2010

I am trying to run VNC server on a standard OpenSUSE 11.2 Gnome Desktop installation.I have done this succesfully with SLES for sometime, however, my experience with OpenSUSE 11.2 is that it doesn't work out of the box!!

I am using XP Pro VNC viewer Free Edition 4.1.2 to connect.

I have removed "localhost" from the # special IPv6 addresses in hosts. This fixes the black screen issue for me. All appears well until I disconnect and retry the connection after 5 minutes or so. Then VNC client makes the connection and then immediately disconnects. It's a no go from then on. If I reboot OpenSUSE 11.2 it works again but then reconnect fails again after the same period of time.

I am trying NX now as an alternative. However, I would much prefer to use VNC.

OpenSUSE :: Application Configuration Via Tightvnc Session?

Jun 9, 2011

I connect from computer A (OSS11.4) to computer B (OSS11.3) via tightvncviewer. Install google talk plugin using user X account on computer B. Test video call using tightvnc and another laptop C (winXP) - seems to work (see video on both C and B (via A tightvnc)). User X tries to use google talk on Computer B with no success, no video, no audio (could be config problem).Then I ask myself and others, how is this possible, or actually how to fix it.

Ubuntu Networking :: Nothing Appears In Logfile That Even Mentions Default Route

Feb 28, 2010

In an attempt to get something that, well, you know, just works... I migrated a laptop to Karmic server today. Which works fine, except for one thing: when I use wvdial and a Huawei E160g USB modem to connect to the Internet (which is the only option out here in the sticks where I live) no default gateway is set. When I add one manually everything is fine, except that the default gateway keeps disappearing after a while (at irregular intervals, as far as I can see). Nothing appears in any logfile that even mentions the default route, let alone a reason for its magical vanishing trick. My wvdial.conf is fairly pedestrian:


What's going on here? I'm stumped. And the mighty Googlebrain doesn't seem to know, either. How do I get wvdial & friends to set the correct default route upon connecting? Given the fact that without a default route a PPP connection to a remote network is little use, I would expect this to be a standard feature and not something that I'd have to script a work-around for myself. But then, I have been wrong before. Secondly, and more importantly, why does my default route keep disappearing without a trace?

OpenSUSE Network :: Tightvnc Not Working With Static Ip Address?

Oct 12, 2010

I have a problem with tightvnc, when I set up a dinamic ip with networkmanager it works fine but if I set up a static address connection it display an error "You have been unexpectedly disconnected from 'hometsa-comp'. Would you like to reconnect?"

"Couldn't convert 'hometsa-comp' to host address" I have setup the ip address, netmask, gateway and dns server in the network manager static address, it works when I setup the vnc connection using ip address instead of hostnames.

OpenSUSE Network :: Tightvnc Server On 11.4 And Keyboard Mapping?

Apr 21, 2011

I use opensuse 11.4 with TightVNC Server version 1.3.9. I use french keyboard mapping (yast configuration).When I connect with putty via ssh all is ok (keyboard mapping). But when I use tightvnc viewer on windows the mapping is not correct.I've verified many time the configuration of the keyboard in yast (graphical) and desktop options (french mapping). I can't map correctly. It seem there is no issue with direct attached keyboard.Another strange behavior is the shift key. I want to use . (need to press shift + and this put a >. But sometime if I press "shift + ," before then "shift + ;" it works.

I've passed long time on google and find no answer yet.Is there a issue with tightvnc server ?A bug with tightvnc viewer ? (I've tried with realvnc and same results).

OpenSUSE Network :: Xvnc, TightVNC And The Missing Pound (�) Sign?

Nov 17, 2010

I am running 11.3 with Remote Admin(VNC) turned on. This has installed TightVNC.I also have also enabled xinetd to manage the startup of new (incoming) VNC requests.All this is working just fine. So, what's the problem, you ask? Its that missing Shift+3 symbol. To reproduce, I run TightVNC (viewer) from a variety of clients (Win & OpenSUSE) to a number of OpenSUSE servers with xinetd managed VNC services enabled. The Xvnc sessions start and the clients display the KDE log-on screen. You will notice that in the username field that the sign is not displayed.

I have run a parallel VNC service (is it Xvnc or vncserver?) which gave me a twm session. It also is missing thesign, so I conclude that it is not KDE that is causing the problem?Secondly, a scan throughog file produced by the parallel VNC service shows:Code:KbdAddEvent: unknown KeySym 0x3a - allocating KeyCode 92 Has anyone any suggestions on how I can get my pound sign?

Ubuntu :: Installed An Nvidia Driver For 9.10. Now Terminal Appears When Computer Boots Up

May 15, 2010

I'm not sure what Nvidia driver I installed the other day, but it's messed things up. After Ubuntu boots up and asks for login, I am greeted with terminal. Setting 1152Xwhatever resolution failed. Setting to 1024X768. My xorg.conf.old file is completely empty, so I have no idea what the original settings were. I have tried removing and reinstalling xserver.xorg but that hasn't seemed to get me anywhere. I have also used the "apt-cache search nvidia" command to see what drivers could be installed, but every single driver that I attempt to remove isn't installed.

Ubuntu :: No Sound In KDE When Started By Startx While Working Fine When Started By Kdm/gdm

Dec 14, 2010

I recently installed KDE in my ubuntu 10.10. To access KDE, I want to use
startx /usr/bin/startkdeBut using it disables sound in KDE (Sound is working fine in GNOME). It doesn't sound for anything like login sound, totem, mplayer or any other playerBut when I press Alt+Ctrl+F1 to change to virtual console, the playback resumes from where it was in time and when coming back Alt+Ctrl+F7 and the time in totem (or any other player) doesn't move. While log out also it doesn't play logout sound and doesn't logout, so I have to press Ctrl+Alt+F1 so that logout sound play then it exits.When starting KDE by kdm or gdm, the sound works normally. But I don't want to login again using kdm or gdm and not to use root user to start kdm or gdm.I don't know what is the difference between when KDE is started by startx or by kdm/gdm where the same user login in kdm/gdm as that for startx

Ubuntu :: When Turn On The Computer, The GRUB Menu Appears, Press Enter, Then A Little Flashing Underscore Appears On The Screen?

Dec 21, 2010

I recently removed Winblows Vista from my laptop and replaced it with Kubuntu 10.10 (I left the recovery partition on there, just in case). When I turn on the computer, the GRUB menu appears, I press enter, then a little flashing underscore appears on the screen in the top left hand corner. After a few seconds, the Kubuntu logo appears and I can log in.But yesterday I replace Kubuntu with Ubuntu 10.10. The Boot process is the same, but the little flashing underscore in the top left hand corner flashes for about 10 seconds longer then Kubuntu 10.10 did, and then a few paragraphs of text appears for a few seconds, then I am logged in automatically.Is this "unusual" boot process anything to worry about, or am I just being a noob.

OpenSUSE :: Konqueror Started Again And Again - Multiple Times ?

Mar 14, 2010

I have a strange effect here, where konqueror is started multiple times. It is no problem to start it from the K-Menu. But konqueror seems to be associated with different actions in applications, e.g. many "help" entries; among others e.g. Inkscape: "Hilfe/Inkscape Handbuch" (~ Help/Inkscape handbook") If I'm unfortunate enough to hit such an item, the konqueror items start flooding my task bar, while the mouse cursor - changed to the konqueror icon - is flickering like wild, while konqueror is starting again and again. None of the windows really open and all icons disappear after some time. (due to some resource overflow, but unfortunately I can't find the relevant log entry this time) How can I prevent this ? (Or debug this, if the cause is unclear)

OpenSUSE Network :: DHCLIENT_SET_DEFAULT_ROUTE Appears To Be Ignored

Dec 23, 2010

I have two network interfaces in my opensuse 11.3 system and want to control the interface which is used as default route. Somehow, it always picks the first card no matter what. In particular, I have tried setting DHCLIENT_PRIMARY_DEVICE to 'yes' resp. 'no' in both ifcfg-* files in /etc/sysconfig/network. Also, I have tried DHCLIENT_SET_DEFAULT_ROUTE but that also appears to be ignored. I remember having used this in the past with previous opensuse versions but it no longer seems to work. What is the correct way for doing this?

OpenSUSE :: Plasma Desktop Is Loaded Automatically After KDE 3.5 Has Started?

Aug 22, 2010

I just updated both my KDE 3.5.10 and KDE 4.5 today (OpenSuse 1.11). The problem that I have now is that the Plasma Desktop is loaded automatically after KDE 3.5 has started. So, depending on where I click or what I do, plasma and kdesktop fight for the control of my desktop.

I searched in every corners of my KDE 3.5 --and a bit in KDE 4 since somebody forced kdm4 on me-- but I haven't found who or what starts "plasma-desktop". Definitively not me! I can kill it safely but that's very irritating.

OpenSUSE Install :: Gnome-settings-daemon Is Not Started?

If I try to change them (Control cneter-> apparence) I get a message that says: Unable to start the settings manager 'gnome-settings-daemon'.Without the GNOME settings manager running, some preferences may not take effect. This could indicate a problem with DBus, or a non-GNOME (e.g. KDE) settings manager may already be active and conflicting with the GNOME settings manager.The first lines of .xsession-errors show:
