Ubuntu :: Cube Settings Disappear After Reboot?

Oct 19, 2010

I am a newbie and loving Ubuntu Lucid Lynx. I have my cube working great with all the associated effects yet after about 20 minutes or so, the cube options are all unchecked and I no longer have the cube. What could be causing this? Initially I thought it was only after reboot but I left the house today for 20 minutes and when I came back I had no box and sure enough the cube options were unchecked.

Ubuntu :: Compiz - Cannot Modify Cube Reflection And Deformation Settings

Oct 10, 2010

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my desktop and installed the AMD restricted drivers (Radeon HD 5770). I installed compizconfig-settings-manager and compiz-fusion-plugins-extra. All of the plugins have worked fine so far. However, while "Cube Reflection and Deformation" works, I cannot change the settings. Specifically, I tried changing the cube caps from the visually irritating logos to which it defaults to plain white, but the logos stayed. I also tried removing the annoying "Reflection" option, but to no avail.

I soon discovered that none of my settings would apply to the plugin, although they would display as though they were applied in the settings manager. Changing the settings in other plugins, like "Desktop Cube," works fine. So far, I am sticking just with the "Desktop Cube," "Rotate Cube," and "3D Windows" plugins, but I would really like that cylinder. And I have used Compiz, including the deformation plugin, for years with no difficulty.

Hardware :: Gpointing-device-settings Settings Will Not Stay After Reboot?

Oct 18, 2009

I am running a debian squeeze machine on a ibm t40 laptop with window maker as my window manager. I am using gpointing-device-settings as a program to get the scroll bar on my touch pad working. unfortunately, I can't get the settings to stick after i shutdown and turn on. I have to go into the program and unclick then reclick the button. i'm using version 1.3.2 (ive tried both deb and source versions). does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this? and if there is any configure files that I could configure instead of having to use the gui program.

Fedora :: Conky Installation - Panels Disappear Upon Reboot

May 4, 2011

I'm running F14 on an Intel i5 processor with a NVidia GT340 graphics card. Installation works great. Compiz Fusion runs too. At this point, the panels are a little unpredictable, in the sense that some items on the panels disappear and appear as they please; changes only come during startup. The userswitcher is usually absent (but not always). The show desktop icon is sometimes absent, and on a very rare occasion, the desktop switcher is invisible. For all of these items, space is reserved in the panel, and when manually added to the panels, that space is left blank; I can not move anything into that space. It remains reserved for the item that isn't shown.

Then I install conky. First installation works fine, shows all things that are called upon in the .conkyrc file nicely. It works fine until I click anything - even on blank space - on the desktop. Conky then disappears. The process continues to run, but it's no longer displayed. Upon reboot, all of my panels disappear, and I have no idea how to get them back. When I uninstall conky everything works again as before (the userswitcher being the least predictable item on my panels). When I reinstall conky, and add it to my startup items, it shows for a couple of seconds after log-in after which it disappears. I assume - but don't know how to check as I have no panels left so how can I run the system monitor - that the process keeps running, but it isn't displayed.

Ubuntu :: Some Settings Not Lasting A Reboot ?

Jan 22, 2010

I noticed that every time I reboot some system settings sort of roll-back automatically to some time in the past.

So far I noticed these:
-All the aMule setting. Includes connection ports and Incoming folder, very annoying.

-Firefox search box engines. every reboot the list of engines rolls back to include a lot of engines i don't want and have to remove every time. this is the only thing in Firefox that is affected, bookmarks and add-ons stick.

-Keyboard layouts. Tried clicking "apply system-wide". still rolls-back after reboot.

What could cause this? How can I set these things permanently?

I'm using ubuntu 9.10 32-bit

Ubuntu :: Settings Lost After Each Reboot?

May 16, 2010

I installed Kubuntu on my Toshiba A135 with no problems at all...everything works: sound, wifi, LAN, etc...BUT whenever I reboot/restart the computer my Display and Audio settings revert back to default, and it doesn't happen when I log out, just when I restart/shutdown the computer. I have an Intel 945GM chipset and I have set my external Acer 23" monitor as the default and only monitor with a resolution of 1920x1080@60Hz using KDE's System Settings...And I chose to disable the laptop's internal monitor...but whenever I restart, the display returns to a 1024x800 cloned resolution (the default one)...which by the way looks hideous on a 23" monitor. And also the sound mixer goes back to the default levels.

So, can anyone help me out? I've been using Ubuntu for over 3 years and I've never had any problems like this one. I have just fell in love with Kubuntu, it looks and runs great, but this problem/bug is keeping me from being comfortable with it... I've been reading some things about XRandr and some commands and stuff and nothing have worked until now. I wonder, is it a common bug in Kubuntu or maybe an erroneous setting in the session manager....?

Ubuntu :: Keyboard Settings Won't Stay After Reboot?

Mar 19, 2010

I'm using Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.04 in Acer Aspire One together with Windows XP (both on different partitions). The trouble since installing Ubuntu has been that my keyboard has scandinavic layout which includes "" and "" keys. When I assign the layout in Ubuntu's as "FI" instead of "USA" everything is fine. After reboot for some reason the changes made won't stay and I have to change the keyboard layout manually. If I remove "USA" from the list after reboot it'll appear to the list again!

I've tried to create /etc/X11/xorg.conf file with the keyboard configuration code, but it has no effect for the situation. I've tried also command:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup This has no effect also.

I'm starting to be frustrated for the situation. I really enjoy using Ubuntu instead of XP but this just doesn't make sense that the keyboard layout won't stay on.

Ubuntu :: Screen Settings Not Saved After Reboot?

Feb 11, 2011

I know this has been covered before but I can't find a resolution to the issue. Kubuntu simply refuses to save the screen settings, and each time I reboot it returns to 1440 x 900. The correct resolution should be 1920 x 1080.

KRandr shows 1440x900 (auto) in its drop down Size field. I've set krandr to load on startup so that I can set the correct resolution but of course this means I have to set the panel size as well. I've only recently installed KUbuntu and it's great except for this issue. Surely there must be a simple fix? I'm not a noobie and have about 4 years experience on Ubuntu / openSuse etc.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Sound Keeps Losing Settings Every Reboot?

Jan 4, 2010

My system (Ubuntu 9.10 Gnome Desktop) keeps 'forgetting' my sound settings. every day I have to go into sound preferences and select a different hardware device setting and then change it back to the right one in order for it to work. For instance my sound goes out of my onboard intel based sound via optical to my amp and so the hardware setting for this is IEC598 output + analog stereo input But everytime I boot their is no sound (and hence no light coming through the optical cable) so then I'll change it to Analog surround and the light comes out so then I can change it back to the 1st setting and it works again. Hope that makes sense, I have had this problem and also my video settings have been 'forgotten' and samba also won't work ever since about 4 days ago when the system updated, everything was working fine before that (i have run update manager since and everything is up to date)

Ubuntu Networking :: Loosing Static IP Settings After Reboot?

Dec 1, 2010

I'm Using the latest Kubuntu 10.10 with the default network manager -- which I think it's called Knetwork manager.

I have set up a static IP by adding a new connection using this manager and then clicking it so that it is used to connect. But as soon as there is a computer reboot the connection falls back to the original autoeth0 which has dynamic IP on and which I cannot change or delete.

Ubuntu :: Won't Save Monitor Settings Upon Reboot / Sort It?

May 4, 2011

So I have a fresh updated install of 10.10 on dell dimension 4550

The pc connects to my monitor through a dlink KVM switch so I can switch back and forth between computers.

When I reboot my monitor settings disapear and everything is real real large.

If i disconnect from the KVM and connect Ubuntu directly to the monitor and detect monitor it will allow me to adjust settings so everything looks normal. Until I reboot and I am back to the same huge icons again. If I try to go back and adjust monitor settings there are only 2 settings options because it does not see my monitor through the kvm switch again.

Fedora :: Settings Not Saved After Reboot

May 24, 2010

I'm having a problem with the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental, I bought a new monitor, Samsung 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor (B2430H) and my old monitor was a 24 inch too but with a different native resolution, my new monitors native resolution is 1680x1050 and I try to change the settings in the system settings/ display/ size&orientation area since the mesa drivers don't have a xorg.conf but my settings don't save after a reboot. Is there a config file for the mesa-dri-drivers-experimental where I can change these settings?

Ubuntu Networking :: Wired Network Settings Lost On Reboot

Jul 30, 2010

I have installed Lucid in a new laptop. Things are running OK except for the following problem:

I connect to the network/Internet using Wired ethernet (TCP/IP) with static IP. Everytime I reboot/restart my network configurations are lost and I have to re-configure. I have googled this problem and have seen a few posts/bugs in launchpad etc. for what appears to be the same issue...but unfortunately I am not getting a clear solution to this problem.

Just for clarity, I am using the following commands to re-configure my network everytime:

Also note that I have already tried editing the /etc/network/interfaces and the /etc/resolv.conf files. But it seems that these are not being picked or are being overridden.

Ubuntu Networking :: Txpower Wifi Settings Lost After Reboot

Jul 27, 2011

I turned down my txpower with the command: sudo iwconfig wlan0 txpower 3 Which works to fine turn down my broadcast power from the default value of 15 dBm to 3 dBm. But it is reset every time I restart Ubuntu 11.04 to the default value of 15 dBm. How do I save my modified txpower settings so they don't reset after a restart? It is really annoying having to re-enter the command every time I reboot my computer!

Debian Multimedia :: Settings Were Not Saving Through Reboot

Sep 9, 2010

Initially, Debian detected my M-Audio soundcard right off, and things were going great, until I tried to get a Logitech webcam working. Got video going, but no audio, so I installed cheese, alsa-base and alsa-utils, and played around with settings according to copious forum threads dedicated to the problem of Linux and webcams, all to no avail. Then I had NO SOUND, until I did a alsa-conf, which detected and (re)set my M-Audio card, until reboot, then again, NO SOUND. Settings were not saving through reboot.

So I purge removed alsa-base and alsa-utils, hoping that things would magically revert to pre-webcam experiment. Still no sound. I have given up on the webcam idea; I'll use my XP Pro laptop for that. But I need sound on this Linux box. Oh and when I'm playing ....., etc. the soundcard itself is making chatter noises to the beat of the music. This soundcard was working perfectly before I started the webcam debacle, so it's not a hardware issue.

Hardware :: Display Settings Lost On Reboot?

Jul 21, 2010

I'm running PCLinuxOS 2010.07 (KDE) on my Acer laptop with Intel Mobile GM965/GL960 Integrated Graphics Controller. I have an external Acer monitor that displays at 1920*1080. I have selected my laptops internal screen to be disabled and use the external screen. The PC LinuxOS Control Centre selected the 'Intel later than 810 driver'. All works well whilst I'm using my system but when I turn off and reboot the settings are lost and I have a 1280*800 display on my laptop and the same on my external screen. Resetting the Display using Configure your Desktop allows me to reset the external monitors to my preferences but how can I make theses settings permanent?

Debian Hardware :: PavuControl Settings Keep Resetting After Reboot

Nov 19, 2015

I've just installed Debian 8 XFCE and I can't get the sound working properly after a reboot. I mean I can but it keeps resetting to default audio output (analog-stereo) after reboot.

I set it to Digital Stereo in Pavucontrol settings, reboot and here comes analog-stereo again.

I've tried setting digital stereo as default using pactl in the terminal but same problem. When I change settings then relog in my session, sound is working, but when I reboot it reverts back to default output. Strange.

Here's my sound card info :

lspci | grep -i audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 7 Series/C210 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller (rev 04)
01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GF114 HDMI Audio Controller (rev a1)

General :: Graphical Front End For Xrandr That Saves Settings On Reboot?

Nov 2, 2009

Is there a graphical front end for xrandr that also allows you to save your setup so that it automatically sets up the X configuration at boot time thereby simplifying this process. For example, at the moment if i want to use an external monitor on my laptop i have to manually set it up after booting as it defaults to the laptop resolution which is not a big deal but would still be nice to have this happen automatically. I tried putting a script into rc.local to do this but didnt work.I have tried programs such as lxrandr, grandr, arandr which are all good but dont allow you to save your choices so that they are automatically applied at the next boot of the X system.
