Ubuntu Installation :: Shaking Display After Upgrade

Sep 10, 2010

I have a problem since an update some weeks ago but I cannot remember which one, because I thought it would get fixed so I didn't revert back.The display shakes very often depending on the type of window displayed and I think it has to do with the hardware driver (nvidia 185 restricted). Was there an update not long ago?

You can look at the problem there:http://www.......com/watch?v=Es0CVNmXGJ8.I had to record it with an external camera because using GTK-recordMyDesktop the recording is flawless.As you can see sometimes it's almost unusable.It has nothing to do with compiz or emerald or awn or any effect, because even with everything turned off I have the same problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: No Display After Upgrade 9.10

May 8, 2010

I upgraded ubuntu 9.10 from the update manager- it had a couple of problems, and now when I boot there's no display- I'm pretty sure it's just the graphics driver since it loads up and plays the login sound.I'm currently running off a CD version of 9.10 and when I chroot the drive with 10 and sudo apt-get upgrade it says there's some stuff that depend on fglrx, and that it's not there.There were proprietary drivers installed before the upgrade- Is there an easy way to just run with non-proprietary drivers? Or to install non-proprietary drivers to another drive?

(I don't really know what I'm doing, if I need to boot to recovery mode and do stuff could someone please tell me how to do that? The only info I can find is maybe possibly press Esc during the os boot and that doesn't seem to work for me)

Ubuntu Installation :: No Display After Upgrade To 9.10 (ATI Radeon)

Jan 23, 2010

I upgraded my HP Elitebook 6930p from 9.04 to 9.10. When X starts the display shows random lines. I can boot into "recover" mode from GRUB and get the command prompt. 9.04 worked fine so I'm pretty sure it's not the video card. The video card is ATI Radeon HD 3400.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To 10.10 Root Can't Open Display

Oct 12, 2010

I just upgraded from 10.04 to 10.10.After the upgrade I can't open any GUI programs running as root.

Or using gksu I just get the password prompt and then nothing happens.Same thing if running from the System->Administration menu.This is the same for all programs, not just Synaptic.Any idea of how I can debug this issue?

Ubuntu Installation :: Garbled Display After Upgrade To 2.6.32-* Kernel?

Feb 4, 2011

I used Ubuntu 9 (Karmic Koala) for some time with no problems. When I upgraded to Ubuntu 10 (Lucid Lynx) I ran into graphics issues.After I log in, the screen scrambles (a purple/green mess)--impossible to decipher anything, although I can get out by marking the spot on the screen to click for a restart, so Linux is working behind the scenes.If I start in recovery mode with basic graphics, I have no problems at all (other than limited functionality). If I start the old 2.6.31-22 kernel, I see a bunch of "unmountable" errors in the startup script, but I can use Linux normally with no apparent problems. I'm running an IBM ThinkPad A30 with ATI Mobility graphics. Just to reiterate, the screen looks fine until I log in, at which point it goes bonkers. I've tried lowering the resolution, to no avail. I'm not running any proprietary drivers. What do I need to change in order to fix this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Gnucash Doesn't Display Account After 11.04 Upgrade

Apr 30, 2011

i have a large data file for gnucash of several years in age. when i did the upgrade, gnucash starts and loads, and the main account appears to load, but there is nothing displayed. just an empty gray space where the alternating colors of the ledger should be.the account listing loads, and i can view other smaller accounts just fine. but the main ledger does not display. however, if i click on some areas of the screen, it will display what i assume is the underlying text in the bottom status bar.

and when a window or some other graphic element 'over writes' any area, some remnants of the former image remain.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 Upgrade GDM Multiple Display

Oct 20, 2010

I've a display issue after upgrading to 10.10 . I have a Dell Inspiron notebook with an ATI 1200 chip set. Prior to the 10.10 upgrade I could connect a higher resolution monitor to the VGA port and hit Function F8 to switch my display from the notebook display to the external display to take advantage of the higher resolution of the external display. With the 10.10 upgrade when I switch to the external display I have no window management functions, ie I can't resize or move windows because there is nothing to grab onto. If I click the show desktop icon I get a message to the effect that the function isn't available for GDM "unknown".If I used mirrored displays with the external and internal displays at the same resolution then I do have window management functions.

Ubuntu :: Karmic Upgrade Now No Signal To Display

Mar 2, 2010

I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 on an IBM Intellistation Z Pro (64-bit).Install went smoothly.Upon restart, everything works fine up until the log-in screen. The normal hardware checks all run and the new white Ubuntu symbol appears but when it switches to the log-in screen, a "No signal" message appears on the display and the green power light goes orange.

I can still log-in remotely from another machine and access all the files and drives, run jobs etc., so the machine did start-up properly, it is just an issue with the display.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Display Settings Corrupted After Upgrade To 9.10

Ubuntu is also not detecting my monitor, a Dell E193FP (19"). In reading some other posts, I see that the first question will be to post my xorg file, which follows.

Ubuntu / Apple :: 2.6.31-17 Upgrade Has Broken Macbook Pro Display

Jan 9, 2010

Today I installed all the updates that were associated with the 2.6.31-17 kernel upgrade on Ubuntu 9.10.It appears the update has broken my stock 17-inch Macbook Pro 5,2 because after restarting my screen is just black. I don't see the ReFit choice menu (I have OS X and Ubuntu installed), and even when I let the machine boot all the way into Mac OS X the screen just remains black. The apple logo on the back of the screen doesn't turn on at all.

I can see the keyboard backlights eventually come on (which is normal when you get to Mac OS X login prompt) - so its almost as if its booting but just wont talk to the display. When you press the brightness buttons you can faintly see the shade of black changing.What the heck has happened? I just paid a big load of money for this baby and I'm very sad now I love Ubuntu but this is ridiculous.

Ubuntu :: Installed The Upgrade Lucid And Display Does Not Turn Off?

May 4, 2010

I just did the upgrade and I want to turn off the display after 30 minutes. I check that selection but the display does not turn off after 30 minutes. It is still on. I enabled this setting through the power management. The screen saver is on, go to blank display but the monitor does not turn off.

On Windows, dual boot on the same machine, the monitor does display off. I don't know if this is part of the problem or not, but when I go to "System -> Preferences", there are two different "Screensaver" options.

Ubuntu :: After Upgrade - Display - Getting A Small Box On Screen Saying OUT OF RANGE

Apr 30, 2011

I have just spent hours upgrading 10.10 to 11.04 Natty and when I rebooted at the end, all I'm getting is a small box on screen saying OUT OF RANGE.

I do not have grub or windows or anything else to boot into, ubuntu was my main system, what can I do?

I have just tried another monitor and get the same thing.

Is there anyway I can boot in safe mode or something?

I am able to boot PC with a live CD (Karmic) but cant acess most of my files because I am not the owner apparently? Cant change permissions either?

Is there a way I can change something using the live CD so that Natty will boot properly?

OpenSUSE Install :: No Display After Upgrade To 11.4 From 11.2

Jun 19, 2011

system will not display (screen is black). I did disable the nouveau driver (I think) and I do have Nvidia graphics card.Messages:

1) Starting Avahi daemon - error while loading shared libraries: libavahi-corre.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
2) Starting smartd /user/sbin/smartd: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6
3) Starting Firewall Initialization (phase 2 of 2)... error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.6

Can you please help me figure out what I need to do to get the display? I really appreciate it! If not, I can do a clean install of 11.4, I think.

Fedora :: Gnome3 Multiple Display After Fc15 Upgrade

May 27, 2011

Upgraded from FC14 X64 to FC15 X64 yesterday. I've used gnome2 forever, its worked very well for me.My workstation has 4 displays driven by two nvidia cards. One with dual dvi outputs, the other with one dvi one vga. I use the proprietary nvidia driver, NOT nouveau. Each card ties its displays together with twinview, and then xinerama spans across the who cards. This worked splendidly on gnome2, WITHOUT compiz. I used to use compiz when i had two displays so that I could have nice wobbly windows and transparencies, all very nice, but the extra area of the 4 displays was much more important to me. See, xinerama breaks compiz.

When i upgraded from FC14 to 15, my displays went amok, i ended up having to upgrade my nvidia driver, an then couldnt get things working in gnome 3. Finally i fell back to kde, kde4, and lxde both work just as gnome 2 did with my 4 displays. Gnome 3 with Gnome-shell fails spectacularly. Even if I fall back to two displays on one card, its wonky, things dont display properly, and the overview sometimes breaks such that it wont even come up anymore. Gnome3 without gnome-shell also does not work, in fact, i cant even get into gnome, it gives me some error and logs me out when all 4 monitors are enabled, and with only 2, it works, but.. well.. I want my 4 displays!I'm almost certain that compiz is to blame. Gnome's "Fail safe" uses compiz, and i'm betting the compiz isnt working on my 4 displays, causing said error and logout. I have no idea what the heck gnome-shell is doing. It actually displays on two monitors, while the other two are black. The mouse is able to display on all 4, i'm unable to interact with the displays which show gnome, but the displays which are black, seem to respond to my clicks, but they respond on the two montiros which display gnome. Very strange.

The next line reads '>Preparing to upgrade' and sits there. Mean while, the process begins to perform a great deal of constant hard drive activity. The window's horizontal activity bar reads 'Calculating the changes' at the bottom of the 'Distribution Upgrade' window.
