Ubuntu :: Displaying 1in Black Border Within Display?

Feb 26, 2010

Has anyone seen or heard of the following problem? I have a 1in black border surrounding my display. I've been running google searches all day without much luck. My current setup is as follows: Ubuntu 9.10 (64-bit), 24in asus lcd, Radeon 5770, amd phenom 2 x4, ddr3 4gb, gigabyte mb. I noticed the border while running the live cd. I figured it had something to do with the video drivers. Last night I installed ATI's linux driver 10.2. I'm getting my preferred resolution of 1920x1080 over dvi. But i'm not able to use my full 24in. It's like using a 20in lcd.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: 11.4 X64 Black Border Around Screen At Native Resolution?

Jun 21, 2011

I'm setting up a Dell Inspiron One 2305 and I can't get the native monitor resolution to work without black borders. I'm also experiencing blurry text in Firefox (not sure if this is related). At most other resolutions it will expand to the edges of the monitor fully. Note that the desktop area doesn't extend into the border. I tried glxgears and noticed that it was only pulling 60fps -- figuring it needed drivers I installed the latest ATI drivers. On reboot I was given more options for resolutions however the native one still doesn't work properly. I looked around for troubleshooting tips and looked into xrandr output.


Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1680 x 1050, maximum 1920 x 1920
DFP1 connected 1680x1050+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 510mm x 287mm
1920x1080 60.0 + 50.0 30.0 25.0 30.0
1776x1000 50.0 59.9 25.0 30.0


Using 'configure display settings' in Gnome, any time I picked a resolution that was 50, it would cause the borders. Any time I picked a resolution that was 60 AND xrandr listed a 60 and 59.9 and said 60 was the selected one, the borders would come back for those too.

So I tried

xrandr --output DFP1 --mode 1920x1080 --rate 59.9

Seeing as every resolution with 59.9 worked. However... This still resulted in borders.

Ubuntu :: Computer / Monitor Resolution Mismatch - Huge Black Border On Screen?

Nov 14, 2010

on a 6-7 years old compaq laptop, connected to a brand new hp monitor i am having a mismatch with computer/monitor resolution.

before i had ubuntu 10.04 which could only run in x's safe graphics mode - allowing for full screen resolution but with handicapped graphics - for example videos fullscreen would be quirky and run with cpu at 100%, something which was no problem before 10.04.

then i tried ubuntu 10.10 and later lubuntu 10.10 (which had exactly the same problem); the monitor is running 1440x900 while the computer is rendering to only 1024x768 - leaving a huge black border on right and bottom of screen. the gfx is still crippled; videos fullscreen is quirky as before.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: WSXGA+ - Shows The Desktop With A 1 Inch Wide Black Area Along The Right Border Of The Screen

Jan 18, 2010

openSUSE 11.2 i586, ASUS P3-P5G43 Rev. R1.04G Intel Core2 Duo CPU E8400@3.00GHz, Intel G45/G43 Chipset The Problem: The screen is for the WSXGA+ (1680x1050) standard. This resolution was detected, at the initial install and later with sax2. It shows the desktop with a 1 inch wide black area along the right border of the screen and that is exactly what is missing at the left border (i.e. invisible). It is like the desktop is shifted to the left of the screen. As far as it is visible the image is crisp and clean. Lowering the resolution to 1280x960 works ok, but the aspect ratio is no longer correct. I have checked the archives and found Intel integrated graphics - openSUSE Forums but trying different hints from the thread did not help.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Find Options Under System Menu For Sound Preferences

Feb 26, 2010

I have to use alsa for audio to work under wine (otherwise pulseaudio starts eating up processor cycles and the audio comes out horrible and distorted), but I have been unable to use the mic. The mic boost is up on the alsa mixer, and they are not muted. I cannot find any options under my system menu for Sound Preferences (which seems to get references in a lot fo help forums), or anywhere else to determine which audio driver the line in on the front uses.

I'm using an Acer laptop from a couple years ago, so support should be no problem.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Install Newer ATI Drivers For ATI HD 5770 On 10.10 X64?

Jan 11, 2011

Last night I was playing around with my system trying to install newer ATI drivers for my ATI HD 5770 on Ubuntu 10.10 x64. In my ignorance I downloaded the latest package from the ATI website and installed them directly over the drivers already running (...which were installed through the restricted software application). This caused a noticeable graphical slow down.

To correct my bad driver install I removed the downloaded package using the uninstall .sh found within ATI's wiki. However, the video performance did not improve. I then also removed the fglrx install through the repository, thinking this would revert me back to open source drivers upon reboot; Similar to how Windows reverts back to the OS driver when all 3rd party drivers have been removed.

However, this did not work as planned. On reboot I was presented with a 'no signal found' error with my monitor after viewing the Ubuntu splash screen (which does still display, oddly). After which I rebooted and attempted attempted a low graphical boot through the recovery menu, with the same result. Returning to the recovery console, I attempted to simply reinstall the fglrx driver


I am at wits end. Is there anyway for a newbie such as myself to recover from this double driver install/purge/etc? If not, is there a way to re-install the Ubuntu O/S files, but leave my installed programs/config files in place? While I know I can boot to a live CD to backup my content and reformat, it does take a very long time to move 500Gb of data between two drives.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Radeon 5770 Open Source Driver

Mar 2, 2011

I just upgraded my rig from a 4770 to a 5770 video card.

My 4770 had basic 3d support out of the box with the open source radeon driver. My 5770 doesn't seem to (basic rendering only with no compositing), although this page suggests it does:


Is there anyone out there who is running a 5770 or knows how I can upgrade to a newer version of the open source driver? I'd rather not use catalyst (Id don't game with ubuntu) and I found the open source driver to be quite nice.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get GPU Scaling Method To Save

May 18, 2010

I managed to half fix my earlier problem of being unable to clone my desktop monitor to my TV. I set the configuration to TwinView, and the resolution to the same as my desktop (Doh) and that seemed to at least get my desktop the way it used to be.

The problem now is the TV. It's cutting off a lot of pixels, and I can get it almost to fit if I enable flat panel scaling and set GPU Scaling Method to "Centered". However, when I restart the X server, it always returns to "Stretched". I've tried saving it from nvidia-settings (nothing seems to happen to the xorg.conf file,) and ala [URL] s have tried to put some version of

Option "FlatPanelProperties" "DFP-0: Scaling = Centered"
Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = Centered"

Ubuntu Multimedia :: FFMPEG Scaling - Get Some Weird Green Band At Bottom Of Frame In Converted Video

Jan 14, 2011

I've got a 1920x1080 video I've edited and rendered with Cinelerra, and I'm trying to use ffmpeg to transcode it to something smaller. However, when I use a command like this, for instance:


I inevitably get some weird green band at the bottom of the frame in the converted video. I know that there's some weird pixel stretching going on here, because the NTSC standard for 16:9 is 720x480 with rectangular pixels, and the 1080 version has square pixels, so I'm guessing the green band is an artifact of that process?

General :: Find Equivalent Cc Options For Gcc Compiler ?

May 30, 2011

I am comiling some programs on Linux using gcc previously compiled using cc compiler on Solaris. Below are some of the confusions:

1. There is -xildoff option in cc which is giving error "language ildoff not recognized". xildoff in cc is for switching off the option of incremental editor ild. Is there anything equivalent on gcc?

2. There is runtime link option in cc as -R but gcc just says "unrecognised option". Does gcc only supports LD_RUN_PATH?

3. There is -Xa option to force cc to chose a particular flavor of c.Its for default c and K&R C. gcc has -std option but not sure which one is equivalent to -Xa in c. It seems -std=c90?

Fedora :: Can't Find Any Proper Power Management Options

Jun 1, 2011

I can't find any proper power management options on Fedora 15, only really basic simple options under the Advanced tab of the Screensaver.Where can I change the Power Management settings in F15?I'd like to set it so that

- screen powers down on closing the lid only, else never powers down / or after a certain time.
- the machine never powers down, either on AC or on battery.
- screen dims on battery after some time, but no on AC.
- hard drive never powers down.

I previously used Fedora 14 and earlier version on my laptops, and could easily set these power management either through the Screensaver, or directly from another menu.Also, I enabled the "Blank Screen Only" mode in the Screensaver, and disabled the "Lock Screen After", but it still asks for a password after some time. How can I stop that?

General :: How To Find Out What Options A Library Was Configured With When It Was Installed

Nov 24, 2010

Is there a way to find out with what options a library was configured with when it was installed? I am trying to install a library on my system that depends on gasnet and it requires me to configure it with the very same options that gasnet was configured with. Gasnet was not originally installed by me, so I cannot tell. I can see bin/, include/, lib/ and share/ directories in the gasnet folder and no other information in it. To be specific, I need to use the same CFLAGS that were used during installation of gasnet. For example, if it was installed using '-g -O2', I have to make sure I use the same CFLAGS here.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 To 10.4 Upgrade Fails On HD 5770?

May 9, 2010

It seemed to upgrade the first round and looks like it booted back into Ubuntu (I had Purple background) and asked for updates and I installed them and on reboot I lose video when entering desktop. I see the initial purple Ubuntu loading screen, but when it goes away I lose video completely and my monitor says it's unplugged.

I tried the grub nomodeset without luck. I am at the desktop in safe mode. If someone can tell me how to edit a file to enable the graphics again, I'd be forever grateful. Sorry if this was answered, but search only gave me help with the Intel 850 graphics problems and not what I was seeking.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install ATI Driver For 5770 In 10.04?

Sep 5, 2010

Does anyone know how to install the video driver for a ATI HD5770 video card in 10.04? It was working, some recent update screwed it up, now I cannot reinstall it. What do you have to delete in order to fully get rid of the remnants of the old driver?

What packages have to be installed before or after though Synaptic? Are you supposed to install it by downloading the driver from ATI and SHing it? Or are you supposed to go though System->Hardware Drivers?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 / ATI 5770: Dual Monitor - Corrupted Display

Aug 30, 2010

New machine with an ATI 5770, with a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid, 64-bit). What a mess! As reported elsewhere, the initial install sometimes came up with a black screen, or corrupted displays, different each time. After several retries, I had a display that was corrupted but barely readable. The installed Ubuntu booted, but also had a corrupted display, just barely readable. I was just able to make out the hint that I should use the proprietary drivers, so I booted into safe mode and enabled them. Afterward, the display came up correctly.

This is ok for me, as a long-time Ubuntu user. But it really is like a trip back to the bad-old-days of Linux: you really cannot expect anyone but a geek to get through this. And the is the LTS version of Ubuntu? I use two monitors, to provide a double-wide single desktop. When I log in, the second monitor displays random noise, and is entirely unusable. I have to use System-Preferences-Monitors to switch the second display off, then switch it back on, and then everything works fine.

Ubuntu :: Can't Find Any Boot Loader. Screen Black When Booting

May 7, 2011

I recently installed Win 7 in a 4 partition hardrive. sda1 was some recovery partition. sda2 said "System Reserved". sda3 was my ext4 ubuntu partition. sda4 was my win7 partition. When I installed win7 I could only boot to win7 so I got onto ubuntu's tut for recovering grub and I attempted to recover it and I think I failed. When I boot I just go to a black screen. I since then deleted my sda1 & sda2 partitions (I really hope system reserved was not needed.) I'm still not 100% sure how the bios knows to boot straight to grub when it boots. What is the first thing on the hard drive that a bios looks for?? Anyways, the only access I have to a functioning comp is through a 10.04 live cd.
