Ubuntu :: Changing X Server Screen Dimensions?

Aug 18, 2010

A while ago, while moving my LCD monitor, something struck the screen causing some pixels to go black. Months later those pixels grew to a long vertical stripe down the right side of my screen. I'm constantly having to move pallets out of the way so I can see what I'm doing.

Is there a way to change the geometry of the X server to be something like 1800x1080 instead of 1920x1080?

General :: Touchpad Sensitivity Scales To Virtual Screen Dimensions?

Jul 11, 2011

I am experimenting with attaching a second monitor to my Ubuntu Natty laptop, and I have noticed an annoying "feature" that makes any multi-monitor setup so unusable that I actually prefer my single-monitor laptop setup. It appears that the system automatically "scales" the X- and Y-axis sensitivity of the touchpad to match the dimensions of the "virtual" screen that spans across multiple monitors. This is best illustrated with an example. If I set up two monitors side-by-side, the touchpad's X-axis speed is doubled, so that moving my finger the same distance on the touchpad causes the mouse on the screen to move twice as far in the X direction as it did when I had only a single monitor. Yet the Y-axis sensitivity remains unchanged, so all diagonal mouse movements end up at the wrong angle. This makes the touchpad almost completely useless, since the mouse on the screen does not move in the same direction as my hand on the pad.

Is there anything I can do about this? I just want the X- and Y-axis speeds to be identical, and I definitely don't want my mouse sensitivity changing because I added a screen. The touchpad is a Synaptics touchpad, by the way. The laptop is a Dell M1330 with an nVidia graphics card.

Fedora Installation :: F10 On Homebuilt Server - Screen Goes Blank And Freeze - The Blue Line Changing To White

Jun 4, 2009

Ive recently built a music server with the following configuration:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200 processor
Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 Motherboard with 2GB ram
Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB SATA Hard Drive
Samsung 22X CD/DVD Burner IDE

I would like to be able to run Fedora 10 (and Vortexbox, an application to burn and store CD�s) but have been unsuccessful in getting F10 to load. I am a novice Linux/Fedora user. I've been able to load and run Windows XP on the server with no problem. I have downloaded and verified both the x86_64 DVD and the x86_64 Live CD from the Fedora website. With the live CD, the last thing that appears before the screen goes blank and the install freezes is the blue line changing to white. I have tried several different SATA configurations , have turned off all non essential options in BIOS(ethernet, USB support), and have tried loading with fail safe bios settings.

Ubuntu :: Pixel Dimensions For Panels?

May 9, 2011

Does anyone know the pixel dimensions for the panels.I want to design a panel background image in gimp for the entire panel but I don't know how many pixels they are from left to right. I know (or I think) that they are 24 pixels from top to bottom but how many across?

I have designed images to use as panel backgrounds but they tile so it's like one consistent thing as I don't know the dimensions for the length of panels, only the 24 pixel height. I've attached a couple so try them out, they're pretty cool.

General :: Finding Images Based On Their Dimensions?

Nov 5, 2010

I'm not afraid of bash but I'm not very good with it either. I'm assuming there's a way of using find, perhaps in conjunction with another tool, to find images in a directory (and subdirectories) based on their dimensions?

Specifically, I want to find all the landscape-oriented images and copy them somewhere else.

Ubuntu :: Changing The Boot Screen In 11.04?

Aug 16, 2011

I have recently been trying to change the boot screen (not the Grub screen). I came across a way to change it, however it need to install a .deb file called Zorin Splash Screen Manager.

Zorin is currently unavailable for download, the website seems to be down, as well as the majority of the links I have found to it.

Is there a way to manually switch the default boot screen/animation to the custom ones I've installed? Or, if anyone has a link to the .deb file that would be great too.

Ubuntu :: Changing Screen Resoultion With NVIDIA?

Apr 10, 2010

so i had to run recovery mode and all my original settings were lost.. boohoo ill get over it. soon enough itll be back to normal. BUT the main reason i had gotten so screwed up before is because i was trying to change my screen resolution. Now from having my computer for a month or so ive realized there are many diff verisons of Ubuntu and many ways of doing things. All im trying to do is change my screen from 640x480 to a more viewable size, cant think of the dimensions right now. Im running NVIDIA graphics and when i try to run display preferences from settings it obviously won't open cause it isnt configured.

Ubuntu :: Screen Brightness Randomly Changing?

Jan 3, 2011

Sometimes, out of the blue, my screen will suddenly change brightness. And no, not the gnome power manager dimming the screen when idle, I'm talking about it suddenly going from dimmest to brightest when I haven't even touched the screen brightness buttons in the last few minutes.

what package would I file this bug against)? This is Maverick on a thinkpad T60, and I can provide any other information that people find relevant. On what may be a related note, it seems that one push of the screen brightness up or down buttons causes two increments in brightness.

Ubuntu :: Changing Gnome 3 Login Screen?

Jun 18, 2011

When I upgraded to 11.04 and decided to give Gnome 3 a chance I was stuck with a windows 2000 (or Redmond like) theme. I have since been able to change the theme in the desktop environment however the Login Screen still maintains the Windows 2000 like theme. I have extensively Googled how to change this, but I keep coming up empty handed. Does anyone have any ideas of how to change the Login Screen theme.

Ubuntu :: Changing Brightness Of A Selected Screen Area

Apr 9, 2010

if there is a way of selecting a specific area of the screen and increase brightness? The thing is that I had to reduce my monitor brightness and contrast, due to recurring headaches. The new configuration is fine for most applications, but videos on web pages are too dark. I have created a script that allows me to change nvidia settings quickly, but when switching to the brighter setup my eyes hurt even if it is just for a moment. So I would like to be able to brighten a specific area of the screen.

Ubuntu :: Changing Refresh Rate - Screen Too Flickery

Apr 18, 2010

I have installed Xubuntu 9.10 on an old computer.

The screen resolution defaulted to 1024 x 768 with a refresh rate of 60hz.

As this made the screen too flickery I changed the refresh rate to 87hz.

This improved the ficker but had some side effects. Firstly the computer now 'thinks' that my monitor is bigger than it really is. For example a maximised application is now off the screen. I have to manually resize the applications to fit the screen. The virtual desktop in the bottom right hand corner is now off the screen, as is the clock on the top right hand corner.

The other side effect is that I now have problems logging on to my computer. It now takes several attempts to log onto my computer.

Ubuntu Servers :: Changing Screen Resolution On TV Via HDMI

May 8, 2010

I've just finished installing Ubuntu Server 10.4 onto my ASRock ION330. I don't have a spare monitor lying around, so I've plugged my TV into my machince via HDMI. This works, but the text is tiny. There are too many rows and columns of characters (or equivalently, the font is too small). When I try changing the TV resolution to a smaller size, it just cuts out the rest of the text. So from the command line, how do I make the text bigger?

Ubuntu :: Changing Virtual Console Screen Resolution

Feb 1, 2011

I am using Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Optiplex GX270, with the Intel video chip. I have a problem with my virtual consoles/terminals (<ctrl-alt>F1-F6). The default screen resolution was set to 1600x1200 at installation, which results in a nearly microscopic, unreadable font. I posted the problem on this thread on ubuntuforums.org, where they suggested adding GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480 and GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=640x480 to /etc/default/grub and /etc/grub.d/00_header. Still no joy--the console screen resolution still was 1600x1200.

I have noticed that the screen resolution changes three times during boot; it starts at standard VGA, 640x480, then switches to 1600x1200, then finally to 1024x768, which is my preferred resolution in X. But, if I switch to a virtual console, the resolution shoots up to 1600x1200 again. There are times when I like to use virtual terminals, and I would like to avoid eyestrain.
