Ubuntu :: Boot - Grey Screen - Nothing Is Displayed On The Screen

May 13, 2010

10.04 was working fine till one day I boot up, and there's a weird grey screen. I hear login sound, but nothing is displayed on the screen, it just goes grey with weird shapes and sometimes color stripes. Sort of like grey screen of death...

I thought I would recover my nvidia drivers, but I get the same grey screen when booting from Live CD also. Even from ubuntu recovery remix. Ubuntu Live CD launches, I get a menu, but when it starts to boot, grey screen again.

General :: Runescape Grey Screen

Jun 30, 2010

I've been messing around to try and play runescape (Java based) on my laptop. I run Lucid Lynx (in dualboot with vista) and have Java installed. Now I'm trying to get Runescape to work so I have even more reason to ban Vista completely. So I installed Java, and tried in firefox (3.6.6). It loads the log in, I log in, but then I get a grey screen with "applet started" in the status bar but nothing more.

When that didn't work I did some googling and tried it with SeaMonkey(2.0.4) - same result. Would another browser help or is there something else wrong?

SUSE / Novell :: Installing OpenSUSE 11.1 On Playstation 3 - On Startup A Blue/grey Screen Appears

Jan 17, 2009

I just tried installing OpenSUSE 11.1 onto my Playstation 3. I installed the otheros.bld fine (which I downloaded via a link provided on the OpenSUSE website). I then inserted my 32-bit Gnome CD for installation and restarted my system. Then on startup, a blue/grey screen appears. Here are the links to the screenshot (sorry for poor quality):

[Full Screen]

[Top Half]

[Bottom Half]

As you can see, the only option is for me to select the gameboot, which obviously takes me back to the Playstation XMB. There are keys at the bottom of the screen, but this is only to change the resolution. So I have no option to install the OS.

Does anybody know why this screen appears and have any ideas on how I can get around this problem to install SUSE onto my Playstation?

Slackware :: "Display Is Not Set" ; Boots To Login, Then Frozen Grey/white Screen W. Globes?

May 1, 2010

1st install no good, but did second to fix some possible mistakes.Booted to login prompt and then, after login, nothing until entered telinit 4, then scrambled screen, then changed to probably the normal screen background of grey/white with numerous white globes, but nothing else and cursor moved, but wouldn't function on occasions also got box with login name, password locations.Got message of "Display not set" and that the problem was so complex it couldn't be explained with these minimal resources.Did third full install and changed screen option from my known resolution with framebuffer, to safe standard, but no improvement.Lilo was installed to MBR, and had 2 partitions flagged as bootable (/ and /boot).Found nothing on forums or FAQ, but suppose could give change of kernel a shot, but as used what cd started with, that seems unlikely.

Ubuntu :: Occasional Flickering Screen And Blanks Connected To LCD TV

May 16, 2010

I just connected my LCD TV to my desktop and now I get two things happening which I didn't get when I used a proper monitor:

the screen scrolls down and sort of flickers every minute or so, plus: every few minutes it goes competely 'blank' i.e. reverts to the blue screen of my TV when there is no signal.

It should be in Ubuntu NOT Kubuntu!

Ubuntu Servers :: Unable To See Login Using Xvnc (when No Screen Connected)

Aug 27, 2010

I have a VNC connection running to my Ubuntu 10.04 server [URL]. This was running fine for a day or 2 after that, sometimes it worked and sometimes not. When it didn't work, I could connect with VNC (i got a gray window with the cursor) but no login screen was shown.

After some testing I now know what the root cause is. When I disconnect the screen from my server, I don't get the login screen. When I connect the screen (even if it is not powered) after a reboot, I can see the login screen. Next I was looking for some logging that could indicate some problems. I looked into "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" and there I see a difference when I connect/disconnect the screen. When the screen is disconnected, the log says:


(II) intel(0): Integrated Graphics Chipset: Intel(R) Pineview G
(--) intel(0): Chipset: "Pineview G"
(II) intel(0): Output VGA1 has no monitor section
(II) intel(0): EDID for output VGA1

Fedora :: XDMCP - KDM Connected But Black Screen

Feb 21, 2010

This applies to GDM as well, but I'm using KDM right now so:
Linux #1 SMP x86_64

I setup XDMCP:

/etc/kde/kdm/Xaccess (link to the xdm 'xaccess' file) includes:

In KDM settings I set it to 'no theme' and 'no custom background'. IPTables & SELinux are both off. The client & server are both on the same switch. I can connect successfully. But all I get is a black screen & an X cursor, never get to see the login prompt. Most things I find have to do with the inability to connect at all, but this connects. I'm having this problem on RHEL5.4, CentOS5.4, & Fedora 12. I'm troubleshooting it on Fedora though. I'm not able to even log in.

I must point out that for CentOS5/RHEL5 I got this working, but I didn't do anything differently that I know of. I just repeated the same process over again....but I'm using GDM on those. Is it possible that I may have to use GDM for KDE because it works with GDM? I'd like to get KDM working because that's what it's designed to do right? work the way it's configured. I've not had a chance to look into it with KDM since the time that I posted this thread.

Hardware :: Using Fedora 14 With A Gateway Tower With HD Screen Connected?

Dec 17, 2010

I am using Fedora 14 with a Gateway tower w/HD screen connected, obviously, with an HDMI cable. It works just fine, except for when I play some stuff online. It's only some stuff, not all. So I was just gonna ask if it has anything to do with the quality of the video. If the video isn't HD, will the sound come out worse on my computer?

Debian Hardware :: Get Vga Display Connected Notebook Mainboard Show Screen?

Nov 10, 2015

I know about ubuntu. Not debian.I have installed debian 8 64bit on a notebook mainboard vga display only.During installation vga display worked. After restarting the lock up crypt hdd shows. After that debian login screen should show. It does not. Only the pointer shows.If I put the hdd in another note book, the debian login screen shows on the notebook's display. I then connect the vga display.

Then I can select settings, displays and mirror debian gui and gui will show on both displays. After restarting the notebook both displays show the debian gui. If I then put the hdd into the notebook mainboard, then the vga display will not show the debian login screen. The pointer shows. On ubuntu settings, displays, general option, I can set all displays. That option is not in debian 8. How do I get debian 8 to show the debian 8 login screen on the notebook mainboard vga display only computer?

Slackware :: Automating Xorg RandR Turning Laptop Screen Off If External Monitor Is Connected?

Jan 2, 2010

I have a netbook (Acer Aspire One) I'm running Slackware 13. and usually, I prefer to connect an external monitor. When I switch my machine on with the monitor connected, the display is duplicated on both screens and since I just want the netbook's screen to be off and only see the display on the external monitor, I can doxrandr --output LVDS --off

Great! However, it's a hassle to do this every time I log in and I'd like to automate the process if possible. I did some googling and I found that if you want to automate xrandr commands, you can put a script in /etc/X11/Xsession.d/ (see this). I wrote the following script to automate my xrandr commands and since the Xsession.d directory didn't exist, I tried creating it. The script was called 45custom-xrandr_settings, as the one on the RandR wiki is called the same.

# Check whether the external monitor is connected

Ubuntu :: TightVNC Assigning All Keystrokes Incorrect

Jan 7, 2010

The goal was to remote desktop to my linux box from my windows machine, I went down the path of TightVNC. Installed and ran it.. thought I was all clear.. however the keyboard keystrokes are all jumbled, and seem to be all over the shop. (i.e.: when I press 'p' it actually comes out as 'X' etc. Happens for all keystrokes. Had a quick look around but haven't found any information on it. Uninstalled tightvnc server and installed vnc4server and it resolved the issue, shrug.

Red Hat :: RHEL5 - How To Install TightVNC 1.3.10

Feb 2, 2010

I need to get TightVNC installed on RHEL 5.

I downloaded and extracted tightvnc-1.3-.10_unixsrc.tar.bz2. I have directory called vnc_unixsrc. I went into this directory and tried running xmkmf but got the kick back saying command not found. After doing some searching around looks like i need imake. So I ran yum install imake, installed imake. went back to my vnc_unixsrc directory and tried runnign xmkmf again (failed) did some more searching and looks like people recommended I reference the path to xmkmf. So, while I was in vnc_unixsrc I tried /usr/bin/xmkmf and I get:

This doesn't look right.... Lost here... should I try to execute make World next? or I do still need to figure out xmkmf first...

Ubuntu :: TightVNC - D Key Minimizes Current Window On Server

Nov 11, 2010

When accessing the server from any client, the 'd' key minimizes the current window on the server (not the VNC client itself). Every other key seems to work fine and I can use the key combo <ALT>-d to issue a 'd', but that is less than convenient. I saw this post [URL] which said to use gconf-editor to set a keyboard layout, but that didn't fix the problem.

Server Environment
Ubuntu 10.10 (upgraded from 10.04)
tightvnc server

Client 1
Windows 7

Client 2
Windows 7

Client 3

Ubuntu :: Firefox Goes Grey

Sep 28, 2010

I have a normal ubuntu installation installed on my netbook.Annoyingly for some reason Firefox regularly goes grey on the background, I am unable to get any input to it. After a few seconds the colour returns and functionality returns.This does not happen after a period of inactivity so I have no idea why this happens or for what reason.I've seen a similar post dated 2008 so it is surprising it is still occurring.

Fedora :: Possible To Install TightVNC-client?

Dec 24, 2009

I'm accustomed to using the tightvnc client to view servers running vnc. Since installing Fedora, I see that it uses Tigervnc for everything, and there is no tightvnc client available. Normally, this wouldn't be a problem, especially since Tigervnc seems more functional. The problem I'm having is that there are "artifacts" when using tigervnc to connect to one of my servers. It's so bad, that I can hardly use it to view that server. I've tried to change some of the options in tigervnc, but the app just crashes when I try to save the changes.

Anyone else experience this problem with tightvnc? Anyone tried installing one of the old tightvnc packages from rpmfind.net or rpm.pbone.net?
