Does anyone using Kdenlive know how to reset the colors? For a six minute project within the last couple of days my fade to black has become fade to red. I noticed it after a dist-upgrade. Nothing obvious has caused this. I've purge and installed, no change.
There's an OSS screensaver on windows that I love called PixelCity (links:blog post, github). it's pretty cool. and it runs fine on my Ubuntu (Karmic 9.10) with wine.Is there a way I can tell the gnome-screensaver about it so I can use it as one of my screensavers? I'm still fairly new to Gnome and the whole "screensavers as themes" thing is still confusing me.I've found my themesdir and tried to create a .desktop file for it, but obviously I've gotten something wrong as it just doesn't show when I open the screensaver prefs dialog, no error, no message, it's just not there.
Installing the xscreensaver packages added the extra screensavers I was missing, and I'm a pixelcity away from perfection..Of course the perfect solution would be if someone ported the screensaver natively to linux, which shouldn't be too hard as the source is open, it already runs on openGL and tries to confine most windows stuff to a single file. But I don't know C++ or 3D code or win/linux internals so I wouldn't know where to start..
I am currently using Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx 64-bit. I installed several updates today so it might be a bug related to that, but now when I click lock screen,it no longer fades to black like it used to,it instantly goes to black. Not a MAJOR issue but I did like the fade better. Any way to get it back, terminal command or anything?
I recently upgraded to ubuntu 10.10 and went through changing all my settings back to normal, but now when I change the opacity of the panel, it only affects the centre. I want the whole panel to be transparent like it used to be in 9.04. So is there any way to do that? Also, I tried using autohide, but its not responsive enough for me and i couldn't find settings for that either. So what about autofade? I can't find anything on that either. But it would be a great idea. I like my desktop being empty and clean, without the panels, (no im not changing it to the apple dock thing) EXCEPT when I actually want the panels.
I've only recently started using Fedora a couple months ago. I used Ubuntu for a few years before. I'm posting because I have a strange graphical glitch in gnome shell. For some reason, this glitch did not appear when I was using Gnome 3 with ubuntu, and I didn't notice it on the F15 Live CD.
There appears to be an artifact (looks like a crack) in my shell. It only appears when the icons fade if I'm scrolled down in the applications menu. Similar artifacts appear in the gnome shell notifications, such as the messaging notifications. I have a ATI Radeon HD 3650 graphics card and am using the default drivers. NOT the proprietary fglrx/catalyst/whatever driver. I've attached a pic.
All I want to do is fade some text in and out via the opacity attribute, and change the text when it hits zero. My script changes the text on time, but ignores the formatting effects. I'm not worried at this stage about the else statement in the startFadeEffect() function. I just want the fade effect to work here the way it should.
I have a new Intel Atom D510 and I'm pretty pleased with it so far. The board is Zotac NM10-ITX.
My first issue was that during long and fast downloads (like transferring my home directory over the network) the system become pretty unusable: web pages would time out, windows would take more than few seconds to load, etc. I solved this by recompiling the kernel for the Atom. (The compile time wasn't that bad actually because the system is pretty simple and it was easy to isolate only the drivers I needed).
My next issue is that certain GUI-related things seem a little sluggish. For example, when the GDM loads it's not smooth like on other computers. When I log in, my background doesn't fade in gradually, it does so in about 1-2 frames. I was thinking this might be an issue with the GPU. It uses the i915 kernel module. Is there some tweaking I can do?
I was expecting to see a memory region of prefetchable memory around 128M here. Is this a problem?
What are you atom users doing to speed up your systems? I'm on Archlinux and I'm using a BFS patched kernel.
Somebody, without saying anything to us, has deleted (not moved) a lot of wiki pages for laptop testing and setup guide. A lot of people were working hardly to document as best as possible each laptop computer to configure Ubuntu GNU/Linux.
Here follows a list with only a few of the lost pages:
I've been having some problems with Lucid; all my applications seem to be hogging memory like no tomorrow. Within about 15 minutes from booting the system, processes like Google Chrome, Nautilus, Python, Pidgin all start to take seemingly too large amounts of memory.
Chrome is the worst one, easily shooting over 200-300MB of my 2GB's of RAM. I would have reported this as a bug in Chrome itself, but my other applications seem to share the problem to some extent. Also: My colleague has identical hardware and identical versions of Ubuntu / Chrome, while he has no memory problems whatsoever.Currently I am running Chrome, Geany, Pidgin, Thunderbird and FileZilla. For this and itself, Ubuntu now consumes 1.8GB of RAM (that's including 500MB cached).
There are quite a few threads in this forum on how to convert a DJVU file into a PDF (among which this thread the instruction of which I followed.) I converted a DJVU file by printing it to a PS file from the Document Viewer. Then I printed again the PS to file into a PDF from that same application. The second phase took more than 24 hours and resulted in a scanned PDF of less than 500 pages with a size of 315 MB! I have many books of more pages which come down to 1 MB only. What happened in the process to make it so damn slow and so inefficient? Is there a good alternative (not ps2pdf because it provides the same result)?
having some massive sound quality issues... my sound sounds so incredibly horrible.. it sounds like my speakers are blown out, all crackly and ******. at a loss because i do have sound, it just sounds horrible.
I hadn't updated until yesturday night, today after the massive update and reboot, my x stopped working. What happens is, after the splash screen, both screens goes black and unresponsive. Tried killing X and alt + ctrl + f1 etc. I can probably fix this myself if I could access the terminal but, the other day I had to be stylish and remove everything from my grub boot besides Windows 7 and the default Ubuntu so I can't boot into root terminal. So, how would I gain access to a console before X starts?
The system is 13.1. Updated using slackpkg. All other software, with the exception of closed source Vbox, is installed via SB.orgDid a slackpkg update this morning for firefox 3.5.8 and there was also a glib upgrade (likely culprit). Now it seems that most of my software does not work. Did I do the upgrade wrong?

The laptop I regularly use is out of use after having tried to upgrade from ext3 to ext4, following the instructions that can be found at namely, Step 2: Upgrading to Ext4Well, the first step was done without problems, but when I reached "Mount your filesystem", the problems started:When typingsudo mount -t ext4 /dev/XXXX /mntwhat appears is:UNEXPECTED INCONSISTENCY; RUN fsck MANUALLYStupid me, I did nothin but jump to the next step:gksu gedit /mnt/etc/fstabWhere I only got a fully white screen with no written text at all, instead of the menu that should have appeared, as can be seen on that webpage.
However, after running Gparted again, it showed the extension as EXT4, not EXT3, so I thought the system had automatically upgraded. Then I proceeded to boot the system, and this is where the massive failure appearedAfter seeing the Ubuntu logo for a while, the system directs me to a blank screen with the message:Mount of filesystem failed.dc5123-ec01-4438-8bd6-cb85bb080f87A maintenance shell will now be started.CONTROL-D will terminate this shell and re-try.root@hihihi-laptop:#So I type CTRL-D:

I've had a password on my 10.04 installation since I installed it (when it was released) and since last week it has disappeared. My computer seems to log in automatically. When I check the login screen settings, it is set to "show the screen for choosing who will log in".
I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed at work on my Dell Optiplex 755, which runs perfect. So I decided to install Ubuntu on my home desktop, which so far has been a mistake. Booting up takes almost 5 minutes, after I login it takes about 2 minutes to get to my desktop, typing in any application (even a shell) is horribly lagged, almost to the point where the PC is unusable. I also get extreme lag when executing programs, or just simply clicking a submit button. It will take 2-10 seconds to actually click or execute. The weird part is visual effects extra works perfect and smooth.

Note: The graph has quite a few drop downs (as you can see the minimum is very low). I've also ran badblocks on the drive which came back with 0 errors. Do I need a special driver for my hard drive? I'm attempting to watch a movie on [URL] and it works fine as long as I continually move my mouse, when I stop moving the mouse the video gets jumpy.
I'm experiencing massive latency/unreachable problems on my Linux machine. It's true for all network connections, here's an example of me trying to ping my router:
PING 192.168.0.1 (192.168.0.1) 56(84) bytes of data. 64 bytes from 192.168.0.1: icmp_req=1 ttl=64 time=15115 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.0.1: icmp_req=2 ttl=64 time=14107 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.0.1: icmp_req=3 ttl=64 time=13107 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.0.1: icmp_req=4 ttl=64 time=12107 ms 64 bytes from 192.168.0.1: icmp_req=5 ttl=64 time=11108 ms
I've tried now with both the maverick default kernel and 2.6.37-rc5 kernel (both 64 bit), same result. If I take the card up and down (ifup, ifdown) performance is restored for a little while, then it's back. I've tried changing cable, network card and router port but no luck.
I have read several of the thousands of posts regarding installing of fonts on Fedora. All come to the same conclusion of having to install each font individually.Is there a way to install a massive amount of fonts, ie: over 500 ttf's? And just for kicks in, I need to save it into the folder for all users to have access to, not under my profile.
The company that I work for has massive amounts on our file server and that amount continues to grow. What we are looking for is a search appliance that will make it easier to search all documents on the file server and also search the content of those documents. I don't really like the idea of everyone using an app like X1 and searching the share drives that way on their individual PC. I would like a search appliance.
ive been trying to install 10.4 as a fresh install from a LiveCD. I downloaded the 64 bit ISO (I use Win7x64 normally, my processer is a core2 duo 2.2ghz or something along those lines), booted it up, and it starts loading. after a while, the screen chantges to a massive amount of coloured static. I tried reburning the disc, but it made no difference. Im now redownloading the file and the 32bit version too. Is this a problem anyone else has had, and if it is, is there any way to solve it? I would really like to use the 64 bit version.
I have been using Wheezy for two years, and everything was OK, so I decided to upgrade to Jessie. In fact i decided to perform a clean install of jessie, so I formatted the partition where Wheezy was installed, and the /boot partition, and I installed jessie in those partitions.
As I had done with Wheezy, I installed jessie in an encrypted LVM, and the installation was ok (well, almost everything was OK, because grub and plymouth were not working, but I will open another topic about it).
First thing I did after installing Jessie was editting sources.list in order to download a few programs (plymouth, firmware linux non free, libdvdcss2, gufw, menulibre). Moreover, I downloaded a few progrmas from the Debian install DVD (flashplugin, VLC, chromium, clamav). i did not perform a dist upgrade because i was not at home, and where I was I did not have a Wifi connection (so I was using my mobile connecion -USB ethernet with an android phone-. BTW I had just performed a hard reset I had not installed any apps after that, so that mobile phone was "clean").
After that, I created a desktop user account, and I rebooted the laptop . When i rebooted, I started to tweak my user account: I edited dconf, and the gnome shell theme; and I started my mobile connection to download three extensions for gnome shell (window list, simple dock and activities configurator. I had used those extensions with Wheezy, and I had never had any problems). Ten minutes after I started the mentioned mobile connection, I reveived a SMS as I had used over 300 MB. Gnome monitor showed that I have downloaded 300 MB, and the android native data usage app showed the same. I did not download any video or music neither watch any videos on youtube, dailymotion..., I did not visit any suspicious web
I had a look at the apt logs and I din not find anything significant (I was using a no sudo user account, so i was not able to perform a dist.upgrade), I had a look at the download, video, music, picture folders and i din not find anything. I tried to check the iceweasel cache folder, but there were so many subfolders I could not check everything.
After installing Opensuse 11.3 i get massive graphical errors after reboot. Those errors directly start after the first resolution change after grub. So i used nomodeset from now on and installed the drivers from nvidia.
After this X11 only flasht up very shortly and i got this logs:
I've tried to research my issue as best I can before posting here. System is 10.4 32bit on Acer Aspire 5720. Here's the chain of events: First noticed Firefox couldn't create a file under /tmp to download Virtualbox. Hm. Try to reload Firefox, it won't restart; freezes with one tab open, blank with transparent square in top-left, not a chrome loaded if I remember right. Both latest stable and Dev Preview. Maybe a reboot will work...Normal Ubuntu loading screen appears, but before anything else a message box appears near top right of screen: Quote:
Install problem! The configuration defaults for GNOME Power Manager have not been installed correctly. contact your computer administrator. Shortly after, an abnormally styled pop-up appears asking me for my default keyring password - seemingly skipping the account login step. When I put in the keyring and click 'Ok', the button stays pressed down and the system hangs. Have to switch off. Boot into recovery mode, root with networking. I read somewhere that "dpkg --configure -a" followed by "apt-get -f install" might help. However, "dpkg --configure -a" fails thusly:
I have a program that is very heavily hitting the file system, reading and writing randomly to a set of working files. The files total several gigabytes in size, but I can spare the RAM to keep them all mostly in memory. The machines this program runs on are typically Ubuntu Linux boxes.
Is there a way to configure the file system to have a very very large cache, and even to cache writes so they hit the disk later? I understand the issues with power loss or such, and am prepared to accept that. Crashing aside, in normal operation the writes should eventually reach the disk!Or is there a way to create a RAM disk that writes-through to real disk?
Sometimes I need to copy a huge directory to another directory (local filesystem), and usually I will use the "cp" or "rsync" commands. These commands are good, but depending on the size of the data being copied, the copy is painfully slow. I realize we are limited because of the hardware we have with it's limitations, ie, I/O speed, and the filesystem (which is usually ext3). Are there any other utilities that maybe not well known, but can handle copying large amounts of data? (mostly in the TB range)
I recently tried out recordMyDesktop (not the GTK+ frontend, just the CLI program, I wanted to Keep It Simple this time ), and found that the videos it records/encodes show massive motion-smearing artifacts when played back. This is without the "--on-the-fly-encoding" option; with it, the video looks fine (i.e. has no artifacts other than the typical ones found in any compressed video), but it plays back too quickly (the time-step between frames is too high, thus making everything go too fast when the video is played back, even though the frame rate is low). Here's a screenshot of the video playing, showing what the artifacts look like (they're nasty!).
I've searched Google and LQ about this problem to no avail: either there were no relevant results, or it was just a post on a different forum asking basically the same question, but with no answer. So apparently this problem is either really rare, or it's something specific to my configuration, and mine alone (highly unlikely).
I've tried different options, such as --quick-subsampling, as well as tweaking the video quality and bitrate settings (--v_quality and --v_bitrate), all of which did nothing to change/get rid of the artifacts.
