Ubuntu :: Increasing Mouse Speed On Startup?

Mar 24, 2011

I have a HP Mini 311c that has an ALPS touchpad. Linux Mint detects it as a mouse and so when I try to increase the speed of the mouse, nothing actually happens. I've created a script which includes just the following code:

xset m 5 2

This is saves as startup-script.hl on my Desktop. I then go into Startup Applications and add the script in there. But when I reboot my Netbook the mouse is moving at its default slow speed. I've ensured the script file is allowed to execute (right click > properties > permissions) and have also tried copying it to the init.d folder with no luck.

One thing I have noticed though is that straight after I login to Mint the mouse cursor does move at the speed I want, but after a few seconds reverts back to the slow speed.

Ubuntu :: Increasing The Monitor Resolution?

Aug 14, 2011

I was playing around with the NVidia settings control panel today and I saw that its Resolution dropdown was giving me options for


My monitor supports up to 1440*900. When I selected one of the higher resolutions, it didn't look very sharp, and the text was somewhat fuzzy and lacked clarity. Was this rendering being done by the graphics card but 'compressed' by the monitor?

The status said 'switched to metamode'. I tried searching but found nothing - what exactly does MetaMode mean? I'm more interested in understanding what was happening, only experimenting with the higher resolutions. What monitor and resolution do you have?

Ubuntu Servers :: RAID 5 Failure While Increasing Size?

Sep 6, 2010

Based on the reading I've done over the past 48 hours I think I'm in serious trouble here with my RAID 5 array. I got another 1 TB drive and added to my other 3 to increase my space to 3 problem.

While the array was got to about 40%, I had a power failure. So I'm pretty sure it failed while it was growing the array...not the partition. Next time I booted mdadm didn't even detect the array. I fiddled around trying to get mdadm to recognize my array, but no luck.

I finally got desperate enough to just create the array again...I knew the settings of my and had seen some people have success with this method. When creating it, it asked me if I was sure because the disks appeared to belong to an array already, but I said yes. The problem is when I created it, it created a clean array and this is what I'm left with.

Version : 00.90
Creation Time : Sun Sep 5 20:01:08 2010
Raid Level : raid5
Array Size : 2930279808 (2794.53 GiB 3000.61 GB)


I tried looking for backup superblock locations using e2fsck and every other tool I could find, but nothing worked. I tried testdisk which says it found my partition on /dev/md0, so I let it create the partition. Now I have a /dev/md0p1, which won't let me mount it either. What's interesting is gparted reports /dev/md0p1 as the old partition size (1.82 TB)...the data has to still be there, right?

Ubuntu :: Increasing Frequency Of Reboots Required After Update?

Sep 30, 2010

Just a random question out of curiosity and probably ignorance. But why have updates started requiring a reboot almost every single time recently? I'm using Lucid, but the rate of required reboots was already on the up in Jaunty. As far as I understood, you should only really need to reboot if something's been changed in the Kernel - is that wrong?

Surely the updates can include restarting of demons or just the software if need be, it's starting to become like windows in this respect....

Ubuntu :: Increasing Maximum Number Of Applications In Browser?

Dec 28, 2010

I just installed maverick on my son's netbook, and so far we like the new unity interface. The main issue is that there seems to be a maximum number of apps that can be listed under any particular category in the applications browser. So for instance when he goes to his "Games" category, it only lists applications up through S (he has a lot of games installed).

So far I haven't found a settings panel for unity. There has to be a way to bump up the maximum.

Ubuntu :: Increasing Monitor Resolution To Startup Menu

Jan 24, 2011

I have followed this post: And when I restart it goes back to having the edge of my window (scrollbar) cut off. I added the to my startup menu but I guess I don't know the command to MAKE it start at startup. (That is what "command" means in the "Edit startup program" menu, correct?) If I go into usr/local/bin and click run it works, but if I can execute it automatically, that would be great.

Also, I have added an account(?) for my daughter and when she is finished and I try to log her out the display goes nuts and does not correct itself. I assume it has to do with this since when I restart the machine (and the script isn't running) the picture is fine again. Is there a conflict between the two accounts and this script? I'm sorry if this is not making sense, I know what I want to say, but don't have the lingo/jargon down.

Server :: Committed Memory Keep On Increasing

Aug 23, 2010

I got a legacy server, and through munin I notice that periodically commited memory keep on increasing. The chart looks like a spiky sine graph, but every cycle it increase both max and minimum. After few days it will go over my physical memory it will keep on growing until the machine crash... Usually I reset the memory by rebooting the machine which is not a solution at all. Is there any way to know what process(es) that took the committed memory? Is there any way to release the committed memory without rebooting the machine? Is there any way to cure my machine from this disease? as an information, I'm using CENTOS 5.5 i686, AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ this is what I get from /proc/meminfo

MemTotal: 3499776 kB
CommitLimit: 10023760 kB


Committed_AS: 3972804 kB
which is bigger than my MemTotal

Debian Multimedia :: Increasing GTX 470 Performance With Wine?

Nov 9, 2010

Is there any way of improving performance with the GTX 470 using Wine software with Debian Squeeze?

Installed version of Wine is 1.3.6 tested with different versions of nVidia drivers including the latest one, still VERY slow performance and many quality settings are in red. Setting WoW to use OpenGL improved the performance, but deactivated many quality settings in red, unfortunately. Looks to me as it's using lower features than OpenGL 2.0?? So what's up with that? GTX 470 supports OpenGL 4.1 so I suspect it's an limitation in Wine software, can anyone confirm this?

Default kernel 2.6.32 is used in all of this. The computer is an Intel Quad at 2.4ghz + 4 GB DDR 2 or DDR 3 memory.

Debian Hardware :: Increasing Refresh Rate On CRT

May 7, 2014

I just got a CRT monitor today, used of course, and plugged it in, pleased with many things. However, the screen is blinking subtly as a result of low refresh rate. This monitor is supposed to be 1024x768 @87 hz and 1280x1024 @66hz (here are the specs [URL]. I only get the following from Xrandr:

Code: Select allfoo@debian:~$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA1 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
   1024x768       60.0*
   800x600        60.3     56.2 
   848x480        60.0 
   640x480        59.9

Is there anyway I can get my desired resolution? I can't find the xorg.config which I read about.

Fedora :: Increasing Size Of System Partition?

Jul 29, 2011

I am running Fedora 15 along with Windows 7 on my Dell laptop. Yesterday, when I was trying to install TeX Live, it stopped in between saying that there is no space left in File System. Even though I have space in my hard drive volumes, space seems to be running out of my system partition which is only 9GB in size (I guess!).I am posting a few results that might help you guys. I have an unformatted 15GB partition. How can I add it to my system partition? And is my var folder too big (1.5GB)? If yes, how do I backup its contents and then delete them? Additionally, the File System shows a folder 'media' (89GB) which links the C: drive that contains Windows 7 and my personal files. Should it remain that way or should I separate it? If the latter, how? I just couldn't find any.

#df -h
