OpenSUSE Install :: Xinerama Config - Adjust Xinerama To Place 1 Desktop On Each Of 2 Monitors And Not Stretch A Single Over Both

Jan 10, 2010

I would like to adjust Xinerama to place 1 desktop on each of my 2 monitors and not stretch a single over both. With the current set up there is a problem with window placement upon opening new widows or context dialog boxes. I realize that I could adjust placement properties and select window placement with the mouse but this is still lacking in productivity. My monitors are not next to on another so this is more of a problem than it seems.

Fedora :: KDEInit Could Not Launch Usr/bin/skype

Aug 29, 2011

I've just made the leap from Windows to Linux after years of flirting with the idea. I downloaded and installed Fedora 15 KDE 64 bit (I have tried it before and remember KDE was the windows manager I used previously, so chose that).

However, when trying to get Skype to launch, I receive the error message: KDEInit could not launch usr/bin/skype

Before settling on Fedora, I also tried Linux Mint, using GNOME. Since the error message seems to suggest KDE is the problem, would it be possible to switch to GNOME, without having to redownload and do a clean install? Or would this be the equivalent of using a sledge hammer to crack a nut?

OpenSUSE Network :: Skype Aborting On Launch - Tray Icon Will Pop Up For 1 Second And Then Just Disappear

May 27, 2011

Wondering if any one else is having this problem lately under 11.4. My Skype does not want to launch any more. When I click to open Skype, the tray icon will pop up for 1 second and then just disappear. Have tried launching from command line to see if there are any messages, but it just says aborted when you try launch it.

I noticed this started happening randomly when I had the laptop in hibernate and then would resume, Skype would then just disappear and then I would just relaunch it and it would be find again.

Slackware :: *completely* Get Rid Of Xinerama?

Jan 11, 2011

I have recently upgraded to -current. I am mostly happy, except for one only tiny thing: my fonts look really, really ugly on OpenOffice.org 3.2.1. All other apps show the fonts decently. I even installed the MS2007 fonts, which properly set up look smoothly antialiased (even in Firefox). But all fonts look horrible on OOO. After doing some research about the cause of this ugliness, I came to found some light here: [URL]...

[code]....

If there is any way to a)disable/kill Xinerama; or b)deuglyfing OOO, I would be interested to know. Any way that doesn't involve recompiling some things (not that I wouldn't want to recompile X without Xinerama support for instance -that could be fun-, but there must be a way to do it without recompiling).

Fedora :: F14 And Xinerama With Both NVidia And ATI Cards?

Mar 16, 2011

I've got a Dell Xeon with two video cards - an nVidia Quadro2 MXR/EX/Go and an ATI Radeon 7000/VE. Under Fedora 10 Xinerama worked just fine, but I recently upgraded to F14 and Xinerama no longer works.The X server tries repeatedly to start but fails, with gdm-binary eventually giving up in disgust. If I comment out the ''Option "Xinerama" "On"' line it starts up (see attached xorg.conf), albeit with a few quirks. I have two X screens (:0.0 and :0.1 - one for each monitor), where :0.0 works just fine but :0.1 has no window manager - I can bring up windows on it but they have no window border ( no min/max/close buttons, can't be resized, etc). The mouse moves freely from one monitor to the other, but windows don't.The error messages I get when I try to use Xinerama are as follows. In /var/log/messages I get:

Mar 10 10:32:41 valdez kernel: [60328.892005] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: Allocating FIFO number 1
Mar 10 10:32:41 valdez kernel: [60328.892477] [drm] nouveau 0000:01:00.0: nouveau_channel_alloc: initialised FIFO 1

Mar 10 10:32:41 valdez gdm-binary[21435]: WARNING: GdmDisplay: display lasted 0.457045 seconds

[code]....

I've tinkered around with xrandr a bit but have had no luck - mostly the screen flickers briefly and things continue on as they were before.

Fedora :: Can't Run Compiz And Xinerama At The Same Time

May 19, 2011

here's what I want:

Fedora 14
Radeon 5830
2 monitors(one 1920x1080, one 1920x1200) -- shared screen
Compiz
Gnome

It seems like you cannot run Compiz and Xinerama at the same time(correct?) So the solution is then to use XRandR right? I configured my xorg.conf using aticonfig --initial=dual-head. When I do that and reboot, everything works fine and Compiz is enabled! Hooray! But wait, there is a separate screen on each monitor and I can't drag windows between them. So I open amdcccle and change the monitors to share a screen(single desktop, multi monitor) and reboot... and my left monitor looks fine but the right monitor(the 1920x1200 one) looks corrupted. Strange text composited over, weird flickering, etc. I can't see the login prompt to type my password due to the corruption.

Ubuntu :: Xinerama With Triple Monitors - 11.04

Jun 21, 2011

Did a new install with a system that worked well on 10, with Xinerama. I have nvidia 9500 GT cards, but I dont think its driver related. Screen 0 is the center Screen 2 is to the right And Screen 3 is to the left.. When Xinerama is disabled things work flawlessly, but not using Xinerama is a killer to me. The nvidia configuration utility generates the following xorg.conf when Xinerama is disabled. It gets the locations right and the mouse moves correctly between screens.

Software :: Xinerama With An ATI And An NVidia Crashes

Jan 21, 2010

so this is my first post but i have finally gotten linux installed. i currently have debian installed i have 2 different video cards installed

Radeon X600
GeForce4 MX 4000

i know you are probably saying, why in the world do i have an ATI and an NVidia in the same box? because i found one lying around and installed it. i have gotten X to start up and i have a separate X session in each monitor. what i want to do is enable Xinerama but when i put it in to my xorg.conf X wont start at all so basicly i was wondering where the problem lies.i am using the radeon and nv drivers i have read sometimes the nv drivers dont work and also that the module "glx" may also cause problems. i dont want to invest in a bunch of new video cards to get this to work but i just might have to. here is my xorg file

xorg.conf:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "X.org Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" RightOf "Screen1"
Screen 1 "Screen1" LeftOf "Screen0"

Ubuntu :: Bluetooth And Skype \ Make A Call Using These Headphones With Skype, Can Speak For Say 10 Seconds And Then The Headset Disconnects Completely From The System?

Aug 12, 2010

I recently bought a IOgear USB bluetooth adapter and a Sony DRBT101/BLK bluetooth headphones to use with my computer.Whenever I try to make a call using these headphones with skype, I can speak for say 10 seconds and then the headset disconnects completely from the system. I then have to reconnect the headset by switching it off and on. I do not have this problem listening to music using A2DP. It works fine with my mobile phone.When I change the profile to Telephony Duplex (HSP/HFP), it shows up as hands free, I thought it should be headset in blueman manager. My friend uses Plantronics headset with is Dell laptop with built in bluetooth and he says his comes up as headset not hands free. Could this be causing the problem?

I testet the skype test call service and voice works fine, audio and mic. I have tried to google and search forums but no luck. I have before used skype on my netbook with my cellphone as a hot spot and it worked without problem but it doesnt have the same provider - different sim cards in phone and dongle.

OpenSUSE :: RandR / Xinerama - How To Make Work In OSE 11.2

Apr 13, 2010

I did my research and understand that RandR is replacing Xinerama and Sax2, it's a good thing in my opinion but it's not there yet -- at least not for my setupI fully admit, this is not a simple usage. Anyway, I have 4 monitors setup in an inverted "T" arrangement (think 3 in a row at eye level and one above the center monitor) on two NVIDIA 6800 GT cards.Out of the box the detection software gets my monitor details right for one of the monitors on the card it detects but not the other. So, I get 1680x1050 on one monitor and something silly like 800x600 on the other (does anyone have less capability than 1024x768 anymore? I think less than that as a default on anything other than a mobile device (like a smart phone) is pointless conservatism but I digress from the issue.)

My other NVIDIA card doesn't show at all so I am stuck with one good monitor setup, one bad, and 2 non-existent.Then I ran Sax2 and got some mode info. that I had to figure out myself in OSE 11.0 so that was nice (still didn't detect my full setup but it never did so that's fine). Next I took my xorg.conf file from my 11.0 installation and put it in the /etc/X11 directory of my new 11.2 installation (incorporating the updated mode info. for my monitor).I then installed the NVIDIA native drivers and it looked like everything was working as before.Except, after a while I noticed this error: "Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0"." Coming up after various actions which prompted me to learn about RandR. Running "xrandr --version" I get this result:

xrandr program version 1.3.2
Xlib: extension "RANDR" missing on display ":0.0".
RandR extension missing

OpenSUSE Install :: NVIDIA Xinerama Compiz - Almost There?

Nov 26, 2008

I heard a lot about NVIDIA Xinerama & Compiz not working but on looking further, in recent times people have got them to work. I've setup Xinerama with 4 monitors working across 2 dual video cards and it works great. I have the latest NVIDIA drivers (using the one-click) and I just installed the latest compiz using one-click as well.

The cards are as follows:
Chip: 0 is -> NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 01:00:0 0x10de 0x0402 AGP nvidia
Chip: 1 is -> NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 02:00:0 0x10de 0x0402 AGP nvidia
(I chose these because they have no fans and when working from home, quiet is nice to have!)

The following options are recommended to run compiz with NVIDIA and I have enabled them all at one point. However, looking through carefully I don't need to since using the latest drivers and having pretty good video cards all this seems to be (according to the documentation) automatically enabled.

Ubuntu :: Xinerama Now Fails Due To Xorg Update In 10.04?

Apr 29, 2010

I have 3 monitors across 2 video cards, thusly I must use Xinerama (And xserver-xgl for compiz of course, but that's another story and regardless of this issue) in order to combine all three monitors into one large session.

The issue is that, on 10.04 due to an update to xorg which has a regression, moving my mouse across to the left monitor causes it to flicker back and forth between the left and center monitor (While also freezing the rest of the display), and it eventually crashes xorg shortly after. This bug has been reported [URL] and has been open since Ubuntu 10.04 alpha, but perhaps there is some workaround here as this is a make-or-break thing for me. If I can't get this working, it's back to Windows...

Ubuntu :: Enabling Xinerama Breaks Unity - 11.04

Apr 27, 2011

I am trying the daily build of Ubuntu 11.04. When I try to enable Xinerama, so that I can move windows between my two displays, then I log out, and back in, it simply breaks Unity.

I was getting the sidebar, almost on the right side, and the screen was all broken, then the behaviour changed to simply not displaying anithing, Unity not loading whatsoever.

I turned off Xinerama (by editing my xorg.conf) and diabled it, and Unity works perfect.

Here's a copy of my xorg.conf

OpenSUSE :: Research On Unabling Composite Effects And Xinerama?

During my research on enabling composite effects and xinerama, I stumbled upon a few threads and discussions which showed xserver 1.10+ has resolved the conflicts between the 2 modules. I'm wondering if anyone knows of someone/somewhere to get a SUSE compatible build of xserver 1.10+ ? If not, could someone point me toward an easy-to-follow tutorial on how to build packages for SUSE?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: ATI Dual Monitor Xinerama With Different Resolutions

Apr 20, 2011

Today I bought a new monitor (IPS236V) to use it to watch movies and tv while I'm working on the other one.. I thought it's the best to activate Xinerama which could be done easy via CCC. But I'm not able to change the resolutions now as these panels are disabled in CCC. The first monitor is set to its native resolution, but the second is something lower.How can I configure both monitors to there native resolution?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: ATI Radeon - 2 Cards And 3 Monitors (Xinerama)

May 21, 2010

After working on trying to get my 3 monitors to work with Ubuntu 10.4 and my ATI Radeon HD3200 (IGP) and HD4850 cards, I just had to share the xorg.conf. I am using the default open source drivers that came with 10.4 and I kept KMS enabled (it wouldn't work without it).

Here is my conf:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Enable The Xinerama / Extended Screen

Aug 26, 2011

I have done a fresh install of ubuntu 11.04. Everything is fine, Ubuntu seemed to be using the opensource ati drivers upon first boot.
Then prompted that I install the ati catalyst control center/drivers from additional drivers which I did.Again smooth sailing untill I decided to enable my HD tv (hdmi) as my secondary screen. This again worked fine cloned. But I could not enable extended. The option is available but requires xinerama to be enabled.

After restarting I could not login. Read up on this and others have has this issue with different cards. I proceeded to login to ubuntu (no effects) session and then swtiched off xinerama. (this did work in this session). The issue is getting it to work with unity. Logged back into unity now but I don't know how I can enable dual screens in extended mode. There are recomendations on other threads advising to use the open source drivers. But these don't work correctly. The card I am using is an ASUS EAH5570. This I believe has the radeon 5570 chip.

General :: Xinerama - 3 Monitors Setup (Slow And Laggy)

I currently have my monitors set up as an extended desktop using Nividia's Xinerama function. Everything works sweet, except it's acting slow and lags out. It all works out fine when Xinerama is disabled. At the moment, I'm using CentOS with Gnome, but I've tried other distributions with the same outcome. If I can't a fix I'm going back to windblows.

Computer specs:3 monitors
2 Nvidia GTX 275 GFX cards
EVGA 4-way Classified motherboard
