Software :: Making Online Flash-like Demos And Interactive Graphics Using Open Source?

May 31, 2010

I've just been looking at a simple but well done flash based graphic on the bbc. [URL] is about supercomputing (btw, isn't it great to see that linux is uber alles in that area of computing). My question is simple: How would one make some interactive online graphic like this on linux using open-source tools? ideally, I would also like it to work on the client side using only open-source tools. I've heard a little about openlazlo, but I don't really know what it does.

Debian Hardware :: Switchable Graphics And Open Source Drivers

Sep 10, 2014

My questions is about switching graphics card on a Intel/AMD hybrid system using open source drivers (Envy 15 with HD4000 and AMD 7690M). I was waiting for an proprietary driver from AMD but apparently it will not be released in the near future and I need to use AMD chip for my 3D intense applications.

Debian Hardware :: ATI R7 Graphics Card - Open Source Radeon Or Fglrx Catalyst?

Jul 11, 2014

I've set up this new PC, the graphic card I picked is the ATI R7 260X, pretty good card with lots of core processors, high clock and 2GB memory. I'm now currently using the 14.4 catalyst drive, it works actually alright, though, there are some mishaps with this driver:

First my hdmi screen had scale down, leaving black borders around, even though the catalyst control said the correct native resolution, this turned out to be a underscan that fglrx does and I've finally managed to fix it. Other caveat is that the screen simply won't suspend or turn off( via software), DPMS actually works, forcing it turns the screen blank for some seconds but something does not allow the screen to sleep.

Performance wise it seems pretty good though, everything is pretty smooth, being able to play games maxed out on resolution and ultra settings, though, I still haven't tested out that many games.

The open-source radeon on the other hand, well its open-source, fully xorg and linux compatible, which is a major plus point. It seem it has come a long way, supporting lot of features and providing better performance in some cases.

Before installing Catalyst I had issues with mesa and steam, steam would complain about not finding the 32bit libraries, this is however a steam runtime issue, maybe it could already be fixed.

Ubuntu :: Open Source Alternatives To Flash For PPC Chips?

Feb 13, 2010

I have an older iBook G4, which suffers to do anything remotely productive despite it's 1.2ghz PPC proc and 1gb of RAM. I was considering on putting the community version of Ubuntu on it just for funsies, but I want to be able to watch flash videos. Is there any sort of gnash or something that can play ..... videos on PPC chips, or am I better off just sticking with OSX 10.4 on it?

Ubuntu :: Making Interactive Command Line Apps More Friendly (bash Feature)?

May 21, 2011

I'm using a java application that runs as an interactive command line (in a terminal). My problem is that it's rather unfriendly as an interaction mode as it's minimalistic: it doesn't allow going to and fro with arrows, there's no history and so on. So I have to type all commands every time and have to retype it if I missed something at the beginning of the line, or I have to copy and paste from a txt editor. The strange thing is that I have seen the same application running on a Windows box and allowing for all the sugar. So I'm not sure if it's because of the shell script I run (as opposed to the .bat) or whether it has to do with system or profile settings in my shell.

For information, the shell script starts with:
I've replaced it with:

In hope I would have something closer to my normal terminal. The app runs but it doesn't change anything to the interactive mode. I'm rather clueless regarding sh/bash and so on. I've seen the manuals but I'm not entirely at home understanding and using their options. I know that there's a .bashrc and perhaps something like a profile somewhere, but I don't really know how to do things with these without risking messing up.

Debian Multimedia :: Skype Starting Every Time When Open Interactive Root Shell

Jan 20, 2015

I recently "upgraded" to the latest skype and now every time I open an interactive root shell, up pops skype. I can close skype then control-C in the terminal window to get the shell I want, but this is annoying to say the least. Maybe my google-foo is off, but all I can find is articles on how to run skype as root, which is no use. I've tried searching the startup files for "skype" (case independant), but so far all I can find is "LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/ /usr/bin/skype" in the root .bashrc which shouldn't be starting the app.

what could be causing this?

Software :: Where Is The Source Codes For The Open Source Drivers For Each Distros

Jan 2, 2009

We all know we can install a linux system such as Fedora 10 and use it. Being linux, one should in principle get the source codes for everything that has been precompiled (except the proprietary drivers such as nvidia) in the installation DVDs/CDs. Where are the source codes ? Is there a place I can download them ?
To avoid confusion, I am not referring to the kernel source that can be compiled to give a linux kernel, but that does not include the drivers, such as

To be more specific, the intel graphic i810 driver has been built into any linux system, but where is the exact source? One answer may be that primary source However, if anyone tries to download the every changing (i.e., keep updated almost every single day) driver source codes from, it is almost certain that the source codes will not be the same as the one that is finalized in Fedora 10.

In beggining of the file there are all necessary #includes:

So I have some questions:

Is there some Mesa forum on the web?

I can't believe you guys are on 10.10 Already that's amazing been so many changes since I last joined in 2007.

Will I still be able to do this? and will my 5.1 audio output still work? Noticed when I googled it some people were having troubles with 5730

Question #2: Is the Core i7 840qm Supported?

Question #3: Has any large scale break troughs happened with Ubuntu and Gaming? Back when it was Gusty and Hardy there was little high end game choice, wondering if that has made any progress?

Question #4: Have people had Success with Ubuntu and Dell Studio XPS?

Fedora :: Online Flash Games - Audio Late With Actions

Jul 2, 2010

I just got fedora 13 today and put it on a slightly older computer to mess around with it, and two things I realized.

1. I installed Flash player through a program called easyLiving, but when i play flash games online like on armorgames, everything will play fine, but sound will play about 2 seconds late with actions.

2. I can't play .wmv files from my MP3 player, I found some codes online and installed them, but now it just looks like I have 3 different audio players in mozilla and I'm not sure which kind to enable, and I still can't play .wmv movies. (I actually believe that problem 1 is unrelated, because I noticed it before I started downloading different audio players.)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Audio Cuts Off In Online Flash Video

Aug 17, 2010

This happens nearly anytime I watch any relatively lengthy flash video on ..... or other online flash players. I watch the video, and the audio is fine for a few seconds, but then the audio cuts off as the video continues to play. Sometimes, when I move the scrollbar of the screen/pause and replay the movie, it starts back up again for a few seconds then shuts off or plays the audio I just heard.
