Ubuntu :: Activate Desktop Effects With Integrated Intel Card

Apr 8, 2011

I have Ubuntu Natty installed on my computer, and I cannot activate the desktop effects and animations. I know that they can be activated, as I used them on Gutsy, but they have somehow been disabled during an update. I want to reactivate them, but every time I try I am told that they cannot be activated because the right graphic card drivers are missing. I have an integrated Intel card on my computer. Is there any way I can reactivate the visual effects? If not, how was I able to activate them in Gutsy?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Intel Integrated Video In Maverick - Can't Enable Desktop Effects

Oct 17, 2010

I am fairly new to Ubuntu, so I'm sorry if I don't include any necessary information. Installed 10.10 rc from CD about 3 days prior to official release and everything was working fine... went about installing software and setting up laptop for use. About one week later, got prompted for upgrade and went ahead through update manager. Now can't enable desktop effects. Right after upgrade had a period where title bars of windows would not display... menus were present, but no title bars, no maximize/minimize/close buttons and no dragging windows to new locations on screen That has since resolved itself. Spent quite awhile searching forums, created xorg.conf at one point, later deleted it.

compiz-check says this:

Fedora Hardware :: QM57/QS57 Intel Video Card - Cannot Use The Desktop Effects

May 30, 2011

I am using a Dell Latitude E6510 with QM57/QS57 Intel GMA HD chipset video card, when I am installing the Fedora 14, if I choose the 'Install the new system or update an existing system', it goes to blank screen.if I choose the 'Install system with basic video driver', it starts to install.BUT I cannot use the desktop effects, the Stellarium, etc, it says that 'accelerated 3D graphics is not available'. Even I have updated my kernel to 2.6.35.13-91.fc14.i686. As far as I know, QM57 do support a 3D graphics, what should I do to drive it to work.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lenovo T400 - Intel Video Card And Compiz - Desktop Effects Cannot Be Enabled

Apr 4, 2010

I'm running Karmic Koala 64 bit on my Lenovo T400 laptop with switchable graphics having both Intel and ATI video cards. I've set my bios to use the intel card only and turned the automatic switching off. So far so good, but I'd like to turn on compiz for basic window animations. When I try to start compiz by selecting

Code:

"Appearance Preferences" -> "Visual Effects" -> "Normal"

I get an error message saying "Desktop effects cannot be enabled"

Code:

"System" -> "Administration" -> "Hardware Drivers"

doesn't show any new drivers that could be installed. This was working out of the box when I first installed Karmic Koala a few month ago, but things got messed up when I installed the restricted drivers for my ATI card. Now I can enable compiz if I switch to ATI from my bios settings and install the drivers but I don't want to use it due to high power consumption and I've removed the ATI drivers.

Here is my xorg.conf file:

Code:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Radeon Drivers - Cannot Activate Desktop Effects

Aug 8, 2010

I'm new to OpenSuse. Just installed it in my laptop.. Overall a great distro, I'm just getting trouble with some video aspects. I'm currently using the open-source radeon drivers. However, I can't activate desktop effects (ok..) and video playback looks choppy (sucks, I get like 3 fps). I've already tried some solutions, like installing fglrx driver (which makes my X system buggy) and trying to manually enabling DRI in xorg.conf (which didn't work).
My laptop GPU is an ATI Mobility HD5650.
Currently running OpenSuse 11.3 using KDE Desktop and radeon drivers.

Here's some of the result from my glxinfo (using auto-configured xorg, i.e., no xorg.conf):
name of display: :0.0
display: :0 screen: 0
direct rendering: No
server glx vendor string: SGI
server glx version string: 1.4
client glx vendor string: Mesa Project and SGI
client glx version string: 1.4
OpenGL vendor string: Mesa Project
OpenGL renderer string: Software Rasterizer

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.3 On Intel Core I5 With Integrated Graphics + Intel H55 Express Chipset

Aug 18, 2010

! I'm thinking of buying a corei5-660 on a motherboard with an Intel H55 Express Chipset. Does anyone know if it's fully compatible with OpenSUSE 11.3? I mean video (that comes from the processor, not an off-board PCI), audio (HD Audio), networking (Intel´┐Ż 82578DC Gigabit), SATA Controller, USB, etc. I've tried to google but didn't find much info so I wonder if anyone is using or knows where I can find more info about it...

I have found this thread on the forums about the H55 chipset: Core i3 Intel Clarkdale graphic controller problem But the problems were facing on 11.2, I don't know about 11.3...

Slackware :: Activate Laptop Integrated Webcam Dell Inspiron 1525?

Oct 31, 2010

I've been using slackware64 13.1 ever since it came out on my Dell Inspiron 1525, and I haven't really had any problems with my webcam in that time. However, last time I tried to use skype - I noticed that it couldn't detect it.

In kinfocenter, my webcam is picked up (OmniVision Technologies). The only time I've had a similar problem in the past is when I used the "Compact" option in lilo.conf, and the webcam wouldn't turn on. Just removing the option solved the problem.

Since I don't know what steps caused this to happen, I'm not sure where to start fixing it

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Video With 11.4 32 Bit & The Intel 865 Graphics Controller - Disable "Desktop Effects"/XGL/compiz?

May 1, 2011

Just put 11.4, 32 bit on a system with an Intel D865 GLC motherboard and 865G built in graphics controller. While the install went OK it turns out that X is totally hosed. After fighting with things for a while and discovering that Sax2 had disappeared I poked at Google and discovered some other poor folks that have had similar issues with Intel video cards. Based on a suggestion for a doc in OpenSuse.org I edited the file: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/50-device.conf

and added the line: Driver "intel" to it - after that things got better. Obviously the install process had not identified the video card correctly. I'm now left with another issue - while the system now identifies the driver and can talk to the monitor correctly, a Samsung S23A350H I can't open a window after X comes up and I login - basically the same issue as the unresolved Bug 673873: [Bug 673873] intel [865G] Windows flash rapidly or don't appear if Desktop Effects are on in KDE and GNOME

The workaround is to turn Desktop Effects off but since X doesn't work I can't figure out how to do that. I can't find the gnome-xgl-switch or a xgl-switch that used to exist to do it on the command line so that's out. Someone said you could drop the empty file "disable-compiz" in the ~/.config/compiz directory and that would do it but in 11.4 that directory doesn't exist. how to disable "Desktop Effects"/XGL/compiz or whatever it is now called on the command line in OpenSuse 11.4 without a gui if that is still possible?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 3xMonitor With Nvidia And Integrated Intel GPU?

Dec 25, 2010

I previously had a dual output Nvidia 7300le which worked fine with 2 monitors (2xDell e196fp). Now however I have just added a new monitor to my setup (and a different graphics card). I've gotten to the stage where it recognises all 3 monitors (2xdell 196fp and 1x samsung syncmaster) and also the new graphics card (Nvidia PCIe 210)...it took me ages to get to this stage and a lot of hacking around in the bios!

I've got it so that it runs two monitors fine (the two connected to the graphics card) but I cant manage to extend the desktop onto the monitor connected to the integrated GPU (I can on windows). It definitely recognises it as when I startup it gives me a command prompt on the 3rd window (integrated gpu) and then when I do startx it runs the session on the other two monitors!

Hardware :: Flash EEPROM Intel Integrated Ethernet?

May 10, 2010

I have an ethernet card that used to work with Linux, but it had its firmware corrutped. (not as a result of the kernel its a different model) I think it had something to do with the thunderstorm I was using the computer in. Anyway, it is an Intel 82562EZ 10/100 Ethernet Controller (rev 01). The device manager in windows xp calls it an Intel PRO/100 VE card, which I think is the same thing. The card works in windows but not in linux. Upon firing up the intel proset software, and running hardware diagnostics the test says the eeprom test failed. Is there any way I can flash the eeprom so I can have a working card?

EDIT: Card fixed after leaving unplugged. It is important to also unplug the power supply connectors from the motherboard as well as capacitors may not discharge otherwise. Also be sure to remove the cmos battery. Oh, yeah don't try to use that intel utility on integrated networking devices. "IBAUTIL is not intended as a utility for LAN-On-Motherboard (LOM) [integrated] implementations."

Ubuntu :: How To Use Integrated Graphics Card

Aug 24, 2010

I'm using a lenovo notebook with switchable graphics (Intel HD and ATI Radeon 5650), and I'd like to have Ubuntu use the integrated graphics, but I can't figure out how. The BIOS has two graphics options: switchable and discrete. On discrete just the ATI card runs, but on switchable, it seems like both cards are being used. Is it possible to use just the integrated graphics?

Hardware :: Tweak An Intel Atom D510 W/ Integrated GPU - When Login - Background Doesn't Fade In Gradually

May 2, 2010

I have a new Intel Atom D510 and I'm pretty pleased with it so far. The board is Zotac NM10-ITX.

My first issue was that during long and fast downloads (like transferring my home directory over the network) the system become pretty unusable: web pages would time out, windows would take more than few seconds to load, etc. I solved this by recompiling the kernel for the Atom. (The compile time wasn't that bad actually because the system is pretty simple and it was easy to isolate only the drivers I needed).

My next issue is that certain GUI-related things seem a little sluggish. For example, when the GDM loads it's not smooth like on other computers. When I log in, my background doesn't fade in gradually, it does so in about 1-2 frames. I was thinking this might be an issue with the GPU. It uses the i915 kernel module. Is there some tweaking I can do?

Code:

I was expecting to see a memory region of prefetchable memory around 128M here. Is this a problem?

What are you atom users doing to speed up your systems? I'm on Archlinux and I'm using a BFS patched kernel.

OpenSUSE Install :: DELL Latitude E6410 - Core I7 M620 With Integrated Intel HD Graphics - Blank Screen

Aug 19, 2010

I have been unable to get both opensuse 11.2 and 11.3 32 bit versions work properly on my DELL Latitude E6410 laptop. With both 11.2 and 11.3 KDE Live CDs I get no graphical display when I attempt to boot into the Live system. VESA mode does not help either, only text mode works. So I installed the system in text mode but during the first boot the screen went blank again.

One peculiar thing is that 11.1 installs and boots fine, what gives? Is this even supported or I shouldn't even try to bother getting this setup to work? Has anyone been able to run opensuse 11.3 on a Core i7 integrated Intel graphics system with X system working?

Hardware :: Integrated Sound Card Not Detected (Ubuntu)

Apr 8, 2010

I have a DFI RS482 mobo with integrated sound. I am making a car puter and only have a 2GB CF card, so I installed a server install of Ubuntu. Then I got xserver-xorg, mplayer, and fluxbox. I downloaded and installed the latest nvidia driver. Mplayer spit out tons of sound errors and that's when I realized the server install has no sound. So I installed the 'alsa', 'pulseaudio' and 'pavucontrol' packages. Now mplayer does not complain and acts like it is playing sound, but nothing happens sound-wise. Pavucontrol shows mplayer as playing sound and the volume as unmuted. However the PCM output is going to "dummy output" and the configuration tab says there are no cards to be configured.

So I think my sound card is not being detected. I don't know what to do at this point.
lspci shows "Multimedia audio controler: ATI Technologies inc. IXP SB400 AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 80)"
alsamixer fails on "function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory"
lsmod | grep 97 returns a bunch of stuff, but I'm not sure what it is.

Ubuntu Networking :: Mobile Broadband With BCM4312 Integrated Card

Jul 5, 2010

Here are my Specs:
Netbook: HP Mini 210-1012EZ
Network Card: Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev 01
Ubuntu: 10.04 Netbook Remix
CPU: 32Bit

Wired and Wireless Networks work perfectly the only issue is the Mobile Broadband. When I try to setup my Mobile Broadband connection manualy using the Network Connections Manager the device drop-down is grayed out and it doesn't seem like my network card is being recognized as a Mobile Broadband Card. When I had Windows 7 installed and started ubuntu over a USB Drive the connection worked great. I've followed the steps at [URL] too and it all checked out.

I found another idea in a thread here and I've tried that too:
I added the following line to my /etc/modules:
echo b43 | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
I've also tried using the Broadcom STA drivers that ubuntu offers but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

Ubuntu :: Shell Permanently Integrated On The Desktop?

Jun 4, 2010

permanently open BASH Shell open, on the side of the GUI. This would mean re-sizing the GUI... You would basically have a divider between the shell, and the GUI, so that you could resize either, depending on which you were working with more. For some programs, which open a new shell (aeroscript for example), that stays open behind the GUI, or has an ASCII "GUI", the program would simply open in a tab of the shell. The main shell would be dynamic; meaning that whenever you selected a new window in your GUI, the shell would automatically cd to that directory, in order to save some time. This would be especially useful when editing many files at once with a text editor such as Nano or VI. Alternatively, there could be a different shell tab open for each session of the file explorer. This however, could get quite cluttered. It's still a pretty raw idea. I did some Googling, and so far haven't come up with any similar ideas or actualities." This should also have options as to which shell you would like to install with it (BASH, KSH, ZSH, etc.)
