Ubuntu :: 3D Acceleration Does Not Work - Low Graphics Mode

Sep 4, 2010

For some reason after updating, somewhere my system is messed up where my 3d acceleration doesn't work. I found a workaround though, I can get it to work when I reboot, and manually select my OS at the grub2 menu by pressing enter. It doesn't work all the time this way, but most the time it does allow 3d acceleration to work almost normal. If I let the grub2 timer count down to auto select it will never be 3d accelerated, and prompts me it's going to run in low-graphics mode and I'm given an option to Restart X. Ok that's one part of it...

Now with my workaround say I got 3d acceleration to work, when I go to System > Preferences > Appearance : and for Visual Effects I select "Normal" (was on none). It will apply fine, until I reboot it gets set back to none. So I'm having to manually put everything back (graphics) every time I boot, this is a horrible bug. Then onto another aspect of this wonderful update. All my letters and numbers on the keyboard are normal, except when I use control and ALT, they don't seem to be mapped correctly because I can't use any of my Keyboard Shortcuts.

Debian :: Getting Graphics Mode To Work

Aug 15, 2010

I decided to use Debian for my system at work, and while trying to set up the system this weekend I've run into a major problem trying to start X11. I'm not very experienced with Linux, so there is probably going to be some huge gaps in my knowledge as I've only used Ubuntu on my netbook with only a little terminal work, so bear with me. As background info I'm using a Radeon HD 4350 and an nForce 4 board with an Athlon XP 3200 ( I think). Yeah it's some ghetto hardware but it's good enough for what I need to do at work.

Anyway, I successfully install Debian using disc 1 here, and did the Advanced Installation. As a note, I installed Debian once using the standard install, but I was trying to run a few X commands that I only found out after reinstalling need to have X-server running, which it obviously isn't in single user mode. This shouldn't be an issue since I rewrote the partition table and am not using the drive for anything else. After the install finished and I restarted the computer, after the kernel loaded my screen shows wither "Not Support!" or "Input not supported." depending on which monitor I'm using. The first message comes from a cheap Japanese tv so the engrish is understandable, but from what I can tell it's the same error message for both. First guide I tried following was this one. I completed all the steps, and my xorg.conf is currently set at those values. For people who don't want to read through the whole thing:

Ubuntu :: Using Safe Graphics Mode It Doesn't Work?

May 29, 2011

This is the crap I get when I try to use Google Earth (see attachment please). I've tried using safe graphics mode-- it doesn't work. When I installed it it says it was not a trusted package and now that it's installed, I cant find it in Synaptic Package Manager nor Ubuntu Software Center. I originally downloaded it as a deb from google.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 64bit Low Graphics Mode Cannot Get Display To Work

Aug 19, 2010

I had some crackling sound I thought I would remove some ALSA drivers and re-install them. Somehow, in the process, my computer rebooted itself and I am stuck with the classic "ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode".

Attempting to actually get graphics does not work. A CTRL-ALT-F7 yeilds the ubuntu loading screen with dots filling but it stays there eternally. I can however access my console login and am able to execute terminal commands.

I have tried a few things to no avail such as:

sudo apt-get update
sudp apt-get install nvidia-current

I run a Nvidia Geforce250.

My computer have ATI X600 graphics card installed, and I installed CentOS5.3.

Every time I suspend my computer and then resume it, it seem the graphics card can't resume and the monitor says 'no signal', but the system still responses, I can use keyboard.

Is there any configuration I can't do to make it resume normally? I've searched a lot in Google but can't find out any one else run into the same problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: NVIDIA Graphics Driver - Graphics Mode Option Via The Start (GRUB)?

Jan 26, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu (9.10) and noted that in order to successfully run the trial off the CD I had to test in "safe graphics" mode. I have an NVIDIA GEforce 6600 GT card - which was discovered by Ubuntu in the first few minutes of the trial and so I activated the recommended driver and continued to test. After a successful trial I installed Ubuntu (dual partition Ubuntu / Windows XP), however, it seems the install didn't activate the required driver (as part of the process) and so I'm unable to get into my newly-installed Ubuntu at all. All I get is a flashing tty screen asking for my username and password - however it's erratic and won't recognise what I type. So - I'm stuck in a catch-22 as there doesn't seems to be a safe graphics mode option via the start (GRUB?) menu list.

Fedora Hardware :: 3D Graphics Acceleration Is Not Available - Intel With 13

Jun 4, 2010

When I was 12 fedora with graphics acceleration worked well and without problems but now I installed fedora 13 dvd compatible with everything when I installed it and no problem only in go to System> Preferences> Desktop Effects I came with a message.


3D graphics acceleration not available. Desktop effects require hardware support for 3D. I was surprised what I came out.

And try to end with the console


But most disappointing is that I do not use Nvidia, ATi, Intel only: / will get more info put this command and I miss it.

Ubuntu :: Just Won't Login Anymore - "run In Low Graphics Mode For One Session" Doesn't Work

Jul 21, 2010

I've been using ubuntu for months now and it was really frustrating dealing with hardware issues. Just when I thought everything's going ok, today, when I boot up, I am greeted by the following error: "Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly, you will need to configure these yourself."

Selecting "run in low graphics mode for one session" doesn't work. It looks like it's loading something but nothing. I tried various options like "reconfigure X" and none of them works. I can login the console find though. I have a backup from a month ago but I've changed a lot since then.

Debian :: Turn On Graphics Acceleration Again Without Having The Screen Flashing On And Off?

Dec 17, 2010

I initially installed Debian Lenny on my system but couldn't get sound to work so I upgraded to squeeze hoping that the newer kernel would somehow fix that. Unfortunately, the update caused the screen to flash on and off starting at the login screen - I'd get a split second with the screen on and then it would go off for a second or two. The boot screen still allows me to boot from Lenny's linux kernel, and that still works. I also had this problem when I installed ubuntu on this computer so after some searching around I remembered that adding radeon.modeset=0 as a boot option fixed this. Now the screen no longer flashes, but everything is really slow - I think that disabled graphics acceleration? After some searching around it seems that these problems are probably caused by something called KMS in newer linux kernels but I don't really know.

Anyway, does anyone have any ideas as to how I could turn on graphics acceleration again without having the screen flashing on and off? Or suggestions for making sound work? I think in the past (on ubuntu) I ended up having to enable the proprietary graphics driver, but on the other linux distros i've tried I used proprietary graphics and flash and my computer got slower and slower and started to crash, so I'd rather stick to the open source driver if possible - i don't need really need 3d acceleration. Stability is the reason I switched to debian. My computer is running Debian squeeze amd64, intel core 2 duo e8400, ati radeon 4830, 4 gigs of ram. relevant results from lspci: 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 Family) HD Audio Controller. 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc RV770 LE [Radeon HD 4800 Series] 01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc HD48x0 audio maybe part of the audio problem is that there are two audio devices listed?

Fedora Hardware :: No 3D Acceleration On Intel Mobile 4 Series Graphics Card - 12

Apr 18, 2010

I'm a Fedora 12 user on an HP Pavilion dv4 laptop. I'm currently using kernel, graphics driver xorg-x11-drv-intel-2.9.1-1.fc12.x86_64, and mesa 7.7-4. My graphics card is an Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 07).

I've been having some problems getting my 3D acceleration to work. Although it worked correctly in Fedora 11, I have not been able to get it to work yet in Fedora 12.

The output of glxinfo shows:

Running glxinfo with LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose shows:

I found a similar message here: [url]

However, I'm not sure if this is the same problem I have. What does the drm_intel_bo_busy message mean?

Debian Installation :: Onboard Graphics Card Setup - Full Hardware Acceleration Not Activated

Sep 5, 2015

I'm running hardware already considered legacy and I was made painfully aware that those drivers, for ATI cards, are only available from Jessie repositories; yet, somehow I was able to have my system configured to run not the stock drivers the system used for installation but, allegedly, proprietary drivers.

I did notice an overall improvement on how the system displays everything on the screen but after fumbling around the system trying to install a game I had a message warning that only software acceleration was activated and not full hardware acceleration, which was what I was aiming at.

After going through a lot of guides on the web I was able to:

a) discover the system is running MESA drivers (or so I have understood)
b) install headers for my system but somehow along the way I fumbled whatever I was doing and I probably now have a lot of loose ends in the system

Being Debian (and rock solid) the system is still running smoothly but I really want to clean up after myself and correct what I can and improve where is possible.

Slackware :: 3D Acceleration With NVidia 8500GT PCI-E Graphics Card - Error: Couldn't Find RGB GLX Visual Or Fbconfig

Oct 20, 2010

I have a Slackware 13.1/64-current system running the kernel that I have installed the most recent nvidia drivers for (as of yesterday or day before) 260.19.12. If I boot up into run level 4 after running nvidia-xconfig in a console and run glxinfo as root I get:


bash-4.1# glxinfo
name of display: :0.0
Error: couldn't find RGB GLX visual or fbconfig

If I edit /etc/profile or /home/username/.bash_profile and add the following:



I have set both X=0 and X=1 as reported by [URL] I get the screen of information except it says


direct rendering: No (LIBGL_ALWAYS_INDIRECT set)

my lspci -v for the graphics card looks like this:

05:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G86 [GeForce 8500 GT] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: XFX Pine Group Inc. Device 2353
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 16


I am sure I missing something from my xorg.conf but at this point I am not sure what I have been searching on this for days to no avail. From the log the only thing that looks like is a problem is it doesn't load the keyboard and mouse but it gets loaded later on in the file.

Is there a trick to getting hardware acceleration to work? I've got the latest packages installed via yum, but hardware acceleration still seems to be off, or not working at least. glxgears is reporting ~300fps, which from my experience indicates that the cpu is doing the work. Here is relevant info:lspci

Ubuntu :: Cannot Boot 9.10 With Graphics Mode

Apr 9, 2011

In these days I install ubuntu 9.10 64bit on several notebook (Intel + AMD Switchable Graphics, NVIDIA Optimus Hybrid graphics), but the same problem is it can't boot ubuntu with graphic mode. I only can install it with text mode, and after installation, it still boot with text mode. I tried to execute startx, but failed to switch to graphics mode. I didn't see this issue with some notebooks with ATI/NVIDIA graphics, so I think this issue may relate with VBIOS VBE mode settings.

When I try to execute "startx" under the text mode, some error information appears as below.
(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory
(EE) No devices detected.
Fatal server error:

Ubuntu Installation :: Running In Low Graphics Mode?

Mar 24, 2010

I am getting the following upon booting up after upgrading from 9.10 to 10.04 Beta:

Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode. The following encountered. You may need to update your configuration to solve this

(EE) intel(0):[drm] failed to set drm interface version
(EE) intel(0):Failed to become DRM master
(EE) intel(0):failed to get resources:Bad file descriptor
(EE) intel(0:Kernel modesetting setup failed
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

I then press the OK button (no other option given). Then I'm presented a menu with the following options:

(x) Run Ubuntu in low-graphics mode for just one session
( ) Reconfigure graphics
( ) Troubleshoot the error
( ) Exit to console login
( ) Restart X

Cancel and OK buttons. I choose OK and the system seems to boot ok.

I'm not sure what is wrong or how to go about solving this one.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lucid Low Graphics Mode?

May 15, 2010

This started yesterday.I have been running Lucid since the Beta release with no problems. Yesterday, I found about 20 or so updates ready for 10.04. I looked them over, mostly lib files, so I decided to go ahead and let them update. That evening I rebooted my machine before I left for the night, and it came up with the error "Ubuntu is running in Low Graphics Mode". In a word X is totally hosed. The display is cut just left of center, with part of the windows on the right carrying off the screen to come back onto the screen to the left.

I thought maybe Xconf might have been messed up, but not sure how. The updates I applied did not do anything to Xorg; and my understanding was that I didn't need that file because I am running with an Nvidia card. I tried to "reconfigure" the X settings from the error message, that did not work. I logged into a text only terminal, and copied a good backup of Xorg.conf back into place and rebooted. Same thing, still running in Low Graphics mode.

Ubuntu :: System Running In Low Graphics Mode / Fix This?

Jun 20, 2010

(Consider yourselves forewarned: I'm completely new and will be incredibly stupid. Give me slack. )

So I'm trying to run my S-Video cord from my HP Desktop to my television screen. Everything was set up, then I looked up how to get it to start playing on forums here. I went to my NVIDIA, and when I went to change what apparently had to be changed, it was already set up in the format I was supposed to set it up as. I hit "save", and then restarted my computer, as the step-by-step instructions said. Upon restarting, I got an interesting message saying that Ubuntu had to be run in low graphics mode. I don't know the logistics of my computer, or really anything (it was given to me, and I don't know how to check ) I've been reading some things here, and a few things sounded like what was wrong with me, but when I followed the directions, it got me no where. I'm coming to you to prevent me from chucking this thing out my window .

So, what I'm asking from you:

1)How do I get out of Low Graphic Mode
2)How do I set up my NVIDIA to play to my TV?
