Slackware :: Slack 13.37 32 Bit Bad Graphics For Ordinary User?

Apr 29, 2011

Have got slow bumpy - slow to load -slow to refresh graphics. Also noticed that when inittab 3 and doing a non graphical login for user startx wont work. Something about fbdev not loading.

logining in via kdm works for user. have tried placing an xorg.conf into /etc/X11 with what used to be ok for user to have using an radeon hd 2400 pcie graphic card. Also placed a file into /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/100-dri.conf again with what used to work to get dri working. Is it me or is slackware graphics gone down hill since 13.0?

Slackware :: Failed To Initialize NVIDIA Graphics Device On Startx With Slackware 13.1

Aug 24, 2010

I installed slackware 13.1 x86_64 bit with multilib, and its been about a month already, I'm really enjoying slackware but I am being troubled with my nvidia card, and I need to get my 3D acceleration working. And I've been looking around the net for information and kept on trying to make my nvidia card to work but to no avail. I cant get X to start, once I put in a xorg.conf stating to use the nvidia card. After troubleshooting for almost 2 weeks and now at my wits end, I now come humbly looking for help in linuxquestions slackware community forum.I've installed nvidia 64 bit kernel, drivers from slackbuilds (version 256.44). The laptop model I'm trying to get it working is an -ASUS K52J Intel Core i3 2.40Ghz with 2GB RAM and with an Nvidia Geforce 310M with 1GB dedicated VRAM.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Launch Desktop By Startx As Normal User

Jan 27, 2016

As a long time FreeBSD user, I consider give Debian a try upon the arrival of my new laptop. However, seems I couldn't launch desktop environment by simply typing startx on console as on FreeBSD. I can start desktop through a display manager like lightdm on Stretch, which is quite easy and straightforward, but I still prefer the "startx way".

I setup Debian Stretch on Virtualbox (4.3.43) using official debian-installer, login as a normal user, and install xfce4 via Code: Select allsudo apt-get install xfce4. The installation of xfce4 was very fast and it also introduced xorg related packages here. Then I edit my $HOME/.xinitrc as follows:

Code: Select allexec startxfce4

I typed startx to expect Xfce desktop but got the errors complained instead: [URL]....

while the xorg.0.log had the following contents: [URL]....

So, I failed to start xfce4 by startx as a normal user and had to install and start lightdm to go into desktop, but when I login as root, it worked and launched Xfce4 by startx without any problem. I couldn't figure it out now.

Slackware :: Init 4 Wont Startx After Upgrade?

Jan 28, 2010

Thing is : I have an Install DVD created from current with the script from AlienBob about two months ago, I use it as my "default" Slackware64 13 install.

I had my drivers working ( KO modules loaded in kernel ) I had to build for Broadcom Wireless and Nvidia GPU. Today I decided to make an upgrade w slackpkg, blacklisted kernel kernel headers, and everything pertaining to it. Still the damn thing installed 2.6.32.x. anyway, ran lilo to take notice of the change, and rebooted. booted allright, only when i Init 4, it failed to startx. new kernel, new mods needed to be loaded, i picked my DVD with drivers, and tried to run the Nvidia proprietary installer...

It uninstalled the previous driver and started compiling a new kernel module..I had the previous DVD installer of Slackware64 Current, as well as my private repo of packages, either built by me with src2pkg or makepkg, or from slackbuilds, I had my /home partition mounted apart, so i regenerated my system in about one hour...

Slackware :: Window Manager Unresponsive After Startx

Nov 10, 2010

I'm running Slackware 12.2 with wmii-3.9.2 as my window manager. My problem is that after startx wmii sometimes becomes unresponsive i.e., can't open xterm or any other program or even quit. have to use Ctrl+Alt+BkSpc.

"$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep (EE)" returns nothing. Though after quitting X I often see XIO error 11 (resource temporarily unavailable) but I don't know if this was caused by killing X. Graphics card is nVidia ION. I'm using the latest and recommended driver from [URL](260.19.12). //for xorg.conf see at the bottom

It doesn't seem to be a hardware issue as all the hardware is working properly (dmesg reports nothing suspicious). /var/log/messages reports nothing unusual (except for some acpid messages but that's probably another story).

I suspect it's something to do with my xorg.conf and/or the DISPLAY variable and/or wmii (because Xfce4 does not freeze). echo $DISPLAY returns :0.0 but this value is set by startx/xinit anyway. So I'm lost at this point.

My xorg.conf is:
---------- BEGIN ----------
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Simple Layout"
Screen "Screen1"
InputDevice "Mouse1" "CorePointer"

Slackware :: KGet In XFCE4 - StartX Command Ends Up

Jan 31, 2011

Kernel, GNU/Linux (Slackware 12.0)
xfce 4.4
Qt 3.3.8
KDE 3.5.7
KGet v. 0.8.5

I've just installed all of the packages in disks 1 and 2 of the slack 12.0 distro so, among them, I have the slack series kde/ installed. I run xfce as the desktop environment, which is able to run KDE apps. In main menu>Network there is kget, a download manager and also supposedly a p2p client. I ran it and it said "It is the 1st time you run kget. Do you want to make the default download manager?". I replied "No". As nothing happened I restarted X (the startx command ends up running xfce), ran kget again, and it made the same question, which this time I answered in the affirmative.

Again nothing happened. So I tried to download some file from the web, in the hope that a kget window would open. But no window opened nor anything else happened! In the console, I did 'ps -e' and there it was, however. So I began the search for documentation. First I ran khelpcenter, and was presented with the kget help. It was all about menus. However, typing kget --help-all in a console, gives almost two screens of information. And I tried several commands, from the GUI, following the syntax displayed by this command, but it was no use. So, I finally had to fall back on LQ, like so many times.

Slackware :: Error Messages On The Text Console When Runnig Startx

Jun 10, 2010

Slackware 12.0 (GNU/linux kernel 2.6) I am said slackware is very stable (I suppose this means it has few bugs). However, every time I run startx to start the graphical interface, for a brief moment I can see (just before the screen is put in graphical mode) a lot of error messages. How can this be? I use slack 12 a lot and have reinstalled this distro many times. However the described behavior always repeats.

Slackware :: SalixOS: Disabled Some Services So No Mouse With Gpm Plus No Keyboard After Startx?

Oct 10, 2010

I've installed SalixOS LXDE and thought it was the best thing but... After I disabled almost all services except syslog, dbus, and hald while inside lxde desktop. I rebooted and my mouse and keyboard no longer worked. So then I booted my Slackware install and edited /etc/inittab on the salix partition so I could boot into init 3 (I kinda like init 3 more than 4 anyway). Booted back into salix and keyboard seems to work but gpm doesn't... Gpm can't find any mouse so I do an lsmod and there's only about 4 modules loaded? Crap... So I dig around /etc/rc.d folder and I think it's got to do with me disabling the udev services when everything was fine after a fresh install...

I ran the init script for udev but it does nothing... I also ran pkgtool and went to setup, selected services and hit enter but it jumps back to the main menu?! I don't know if that's a glitch or what but it won't even let me pick the services with pkgtool... So what can I do to change everything back to their default value? I only booted once into my new salix install, changed services, rebooted, and then problems... I really loved the way everything was working on my first boot. Salix is one of those distro's that really gave me a happy feeling with linux so I'd really hate to stop using it over this one wrong thing I did...
