Ubuntu :: All Text Appearing Blurry In Crunchbang?

Apr 13, 2009

I've been using Crunchbang for a little while, and I've started to notice that I'm actually having to squint to see the text on every site (as well as the text used in the menus). What's weird is that these same sites look great in Ubuntu (I can actually see them and what not), but for whatever reason all of the text is blurry in crunchbang.

General :: Graphical Display Appearing Very Blurry

Feb 23, 2011

I have installed fedora 8 on my cPCI based system [URL]. It seems to have 256MB RAM. Once I login as root in text editor mode, I typed init 5. But the graphical display appears very blur. I changed the monitor, but still same result. One more observation I made is, after 10mins it used to enter into screen saver mode (blank screen), but when I pressed some button, the graphical display appeared with full colors. But now even this is not happening. The system just goes into some state after init 5, where my the display goes blank and even the keyboard doesn't work.

Ubuntu :: Text And Images Appearing Small On Computer

Aug 16, 2010

My friend has Ubuntu on his computer and he told me that one day when he turned It on all the text and Images on his computer are small. This even happens when he opens the Internet, not just on his desktop. Could this be an Ubuntu problem or could there be a setting that was accidentally switched?

Ubuntu :: Blurry Graphics On Low Resolutions?

Nov 1, 2010

I have recently installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my computer. The default display driver supplied with it only allowed the screen's default resolution (1280x1024), so I downloaded and installed nVidia's latest driver (260). When I change the resolution to anything lower than the default, the graphics (and most notably letters) everywhere appear slightly blurry, becoming more and more blurry as I lower the resolution. The blur is not terrible, I can still use it but it becomes annoying to watch after a while. I am using a GT240 graphics card, and this problem does not exist on Windows using the same resolution and same driver version.

Ubuntu :: All Mozilla Fonts Are Blurry On 10.04?

Nov 26, 2010

I have a new laptop where I had to install Ubuntu 10.04 (8.04 wouldn't boot). All Mozilla software that I use every day (Firefox, Thunderbird, Sunbird) has blurry fonts in 10.04, as opposed to 8.04 where all the fonts are clear. I remember that on 8.04, Thunderbird 2 has the same blurry fonts if I use the package from Mozilla's website, but the fonts are clean if I use the Thunderbird 2 from the repository. The fonts in the content rendering (mail, web pages) are also blurred in a similar fashion in 10.04. I attach here the menus from Firefox 4.0 beta 1 on 8.04 and 10.04. It can be seen on large zoom that the fonts are not only blurry, but slightly smaller in width.

Ubuntu :: Blurry Fonts In Opera And Firefox?

Mar 13, 2010


why fonts in Chrome and Opera/Firefox are so different, even though they're set the same (Arial and Times New Roman)?

For me, pages in Opera/Firefox are blurry and I'd prefer to make them look like those in Google Chrome.

How to do that? Especially in Opera?

Ubuntu Installation :: Going From Crunchbang 9.04 Back To Lucid

Apr 28, 2010

I'm planning on going from Crunchbang 9.04 back to Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. My main concern is drivers and such. I have an Asus K40 with 4 gb ram, and Nvidia graphics cards. Last time, I had a disaster with Jaunty. The suspect is Gnome, as Crunchbang works. Is there a chance that I could have issues using the 64-bit 10.04 LTS? I need a stable system. It is going to take me a while to set up the new system so I want to make sure I'm prepared for any issues. I'm doing a clean install. I can pull up hardware types, etc, if need be later tonight.

Ubuntu :: Could Not Get Actual CrunchBang Install Files

Apr 10, 2011

I had the problem: "could not download all repository indexes". On Cruncheee (An EEEPC specific Crunchbang distro), which I managed to "fix" by changing the /etc/apt/sources.list file by replacing it with stuff I found in a guide. (Shown at end). Now when I press the Reload button on Synaptic no more errors come up! But when I search for "audacious" (music player) I can only find "crunchbang-audacious-theme", and no actual crunchbang installing things.

What have I actually done to my my sources.list file, did I tell it to look elsewhere for servers with lists of dependencies? Is a "repository" just a place on the internet which has lots of dependencies in it? If I were to just add more and more stuff to my sources.list file and kept pressing "reload" on Synaptic, would I eventually find some packages to install Audacious? What does "sudo apt-get" do? Is that exactly the same as finding something on synaptic and clicking it?

My new sources.list:
## Add comments (##) in front of any line to remove it from being checked.
## Use the following sources.list at your own risk.
deb [URL] dapper main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src [URL] dapper main restricted universe multiverse

Ubuntu :: PDF Generation Settings - JPEGs Included Come Out Blurry

Apr 22, 2010

Generally on my system(Karmic x64), if I generate a pdf, any image included comes out distinctly blurry. I have googled and come across this [URL] which says when there is a pdf generation, everything is recompressed, hence the blurriness. How is there a way around this? What do I tweak to ensure pictures are left alone (I already ensure they are as small as possible) when I convert anything to pdf?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Blurry Projector Image With Intel GMA

Oct 11, 2010

Here are the details:
Acer Aspire 5315-2681 notebook
Intel GMA 965 adapter
Ubuntu 10.04.1 (Lucid)
Not sure what resolution the desktop is, but should be 1280x800
Fn+F5 does nothing (2nd display notebook hotkey)
ANDsome sort of SHARP projector
Projector resolution should be 800x600

This is the info from lspic:

VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

(There is a sticker on the computer that says Mobile Intel GMA X3100, however.)

When I booted up the computer with the projector attached my bootloader appeared on the wall but not on the LCD. When I logged in my desktop appeared properly on my computer and is duplicated on the wall. However the wall image is very blurry. Part of the lower image is cut off and the right side is too short and there is a green band on the right edge a half dozen pixels wide.

When I booted (dual boot) into windows XP I got the same thing. Then I installed the proper drivers for the graphics adapter (they had not been installed because I hadn't used XP for anything but updating the BIOS) and the image lined up neatly and fit properly, and I could set the display to extend my desktop (instead of duplicate) it on the projector image. (This is what I would like to do under Ubuntu).

I'm concerned that my VGA controller doesn't have the right drivers or is set up incorrectly, but since I'm new to Linux I have no idea how to fix it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound On CrunchBang 8.10 Using ES 1869 ISA Card?

Jan 2, 2010

I ran into this issue while setting up a Compaq DeskPro SB PD1000 Series computer, using CrunchBang Lite 8.10 as the OS. After some diagnosis, I'm reasonably certain that the issue is something that would affect all Ubuntu variations, so I marked this thread that way.

The issue is that the sound was not working. Since the sound card on this machine was an old ISA PNP (plug-and-play) card, I assume it was just not detected automatically.The output of command 'lsmod' showed no sound modules were loaded, so I figured that loading the correct driver would solve the issue. Command 'lspci' didn't show the card (because it's ISA), so I installed the 'pnputils' package ('sudo apt-get install pnputils') and looked at the output of command 'lspnp -v'.

The lspnp output showed a card was present but not active, and identified it as an ESS1869. There's an appropriate ALSA module called 'snd-es18xx', so I loaded that using 'sudo modprobe snd-es18xx' -- since the driver is plug-and-play compatible, no further options should be needed.The module loaded fine, and 'lspnp -v' now shows the card is active. Also, the output of 'aplay -l' shows a card is seen -- 'ESS AudioDrive ES1869', which appears to be the correct hardware. However, I still get no sound, and trying to launch 'alsamixer' returns an error message about the default device not being present.

Ubuntu Networking :: Compaq 6720s - Cannot Get Crunchbang Or (8.10) To See The Wireless

Feb 11, 2010

I'm totally new to Ubuntu and have just set my laptop up to dual boot. It is an HP Compaq 6720s. I am running crunchbang just now. And am running Ubuntu from the live CD to look at things and familiarise myself.

My laptop has the Broadcom wireless card inbuilt. BUT.. I cannot get Crunchbang or the Ubuntu (8.10) to see the wireless. Is there some little thing I am missing or something that I should set up that I don't know about?

Debian :: Everything Was Working Fine Except The Screen Was Blurry?

Dec 27, 2010

I'm having problems installing or removing anything from Debian. The whole problem has kind of looped for me for half a day now.

I installed Debian with the latest release and when I booted into the system, everything was working fine except the screen was blurry. So I spent a few hours looking for a way to install nvidia drivers. Trying to used the nv drivers, (vesa before) caused gdm to stop working with "no screen found" errors and when i finally installed the nvidia drivers, it seems to have reverted my kernel back. I was at 686 before and now I'm on 486, giving me an extra option between 486 and 686 in grub.

This was fine to me but when I boot into the 486 I get notifications about updates close to a gig in download size. I didn't want to download it in fear of breaking the system but did after package manager would refuse to install or uninstall anything without installing/uninstalling the gigs worth of updates.

During the update, my screen kind of malfunctioned and i rebooted going into ctrl+alt+f1. When I came to, the gdm wouldn't start, kind of looping to the login screen and blanking out, never fully drawing it. I tried a few configurations in /etc/X11/xorg.conf to no avail and decided to try the 686 configuration.

Xserver wouldn't boot with noscreens found untill I decided to try to install the same nvidia drivers. While I was still on the 686 kernel, it would not boot but when I rebooted and went into the 486 kernel, it logged back in to what seemed before updating.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Thinkpad A22m Video Driver - Mid Section Of Desktop Blurry?

Nov 14, 2010

I have a problem with the graphics on my thinkpad a22m laptop. specs:

900mhz cpu
256 ram
20gig hd
??ati rage mobility m3 video card ??

when I start up ubuntu (10.10) and reach the desktop, the screen is messed up. The center of the screen becomes blurry, and it looks like what is normally the right part of the screen is duplicated in the middle of the screen (with what should be the middle of the screen disappearing).

I think its an ATI video card, and I tried to install different driver from Softwarecenter but no succes.I know the screen is working, because when I boot forinstance, the Ibm logo is showed nicely across the screen. So its not a hardware issue. Another thing, I got puppy linux to work correctly after having the same grapphic issues on that OS when I first installed it. But some how I managed to get the right drivers. But as I like ubuntu more, I would appriciate your help with figuring this out

ps. when I try to setup screen resolution in System>Settings>"resolution", Ubuntu says "unknown display" (marked with red color).

General :: Using A Live CD Of CrunchBang To Install Chkdsk To USB Drive?

If I had a XP Install disk, I'd be OK, but... I don't. I've read around, and it seems that I just need to run chkdsk, but that doesn't run under Linux, and there is no program to do the same under Linux. install and run chkdsk from a USB flash drive?

Hardware :: Acer P215H Monitor 21.5 - Widescreen Crunchbang Horizontal Position

Sep 25, 2010

I have tried it with several window managers, xfce, gnome, kde, etc...OK, have tried every thing the monitor its self will let me do (horizontal position, clock) The screen works fine in lower resolutions. It does not work on 1920 x 1080 which is what the monitor says it will do, and it does it just fine under Ubuntu and Fedora as well as winders. I guess basically i just need to know if there are any tricks you all may know or if you can direct me to a place where i may find linux driver for this monitor because im at a loss, BTW it does this on all slackware based distros.

Hardware :: Connect Linksys WPC54gs (bcm4318) Wireless Adapter In CrunchBang?

Feb 11, 2010

I recently tried to install Crunchbang on my IBM Thinkpad T20 laptop. Everything went OK as far as I can tell (I still have to adjust acpi and display settings), but I cannot get my laptop to connect to the internet via wireless (wired connection works fine). I've done a good deal of searching online, and I realize that my wireless adapter (wpc54gs, bcm4318 chipset) is problematic in linux, and that b43-fwcutter is typically required. I did install b43-fwcutter, and it seemed to install OK, but nothing subsequently happened when I opened networkmanager. I'm not sure at this point if my problem is that I don't know how to configure any wireless adapter in crunchbang, or if it is that my particular adapter is not being recognized.
