Ubuntu Multimedia :: Get Past 60 Hz With ATI & Lucid Lynx?

Sep 19, 2010

I've recently built a half-new computer and installed Lucid Lynx on it.I managed to get everything else working and even got the ATI drivers installed. However, I can't get above 60 Hz on my old CRT monitor - the ATI driver controls have 60 as the highest selectable refresh rate. The preferred 1152x864 screenmode works fine otherwise.

Here are the known specifications:

Monitor horizontal refresh: 30-86 kHz
Monitor vertical refresh: 50-150 Hz
Known working display mode on earlier graphics card: 1152x864, 85 Hz.

My motherboard (with integrated graphics) is the Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 AMD 880G AM3. The GPU is Radeon HD 4250.The ATI drivers seem to have "taken over" the xorg.conf, so I don't know where to input any values.

Ubuntu :: Can't Get Past Login Screen In 10.04 Lucid Lynx

Jun 11, 2010

I installed Ubuntu for the first time yesterday by running Wubi on Windows Vista Home Premium. For all of yesterday and up to lunchtime today Ubuntu was working fine. I followed the instructions on a forum post to remove Evolution Mail via the synaptic applications menu. I proceeded to log out of Ubuntu and reboot (I hoestly can't remember what for) Anyway, ever since I have not been able to log in to Ubuntu. I enter my username and password as normal and they are accepted, however moments the log in page displays again. This continues in an endless loop. The password is definitely correct because I get an authentication error if I enter anything else. I know I am not the only person experiencing this issue.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound In 10.04 Lucid Lynx - Not Even Alerts ?

May 12, 2010

I get no sound for anything, I am running Ubuntu Lucid-amd64. Pulseaudio detects my sound card, and appears to be playing to it when I look at pavucontrol. But I get no sound for anything, not even alerts. I don't eve know how to debug it, because everything I have looked at looks like it should be working. I have checked every mute button I can find, and nothing is muted that I can see. The relevant information for my sound card from lspci -v is:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Shared Music Library Between Lucid Lynx And XP

Jun 24, 2010

I've decided to make the plunge and switch to linux! Actually, I plan to dualboot Win XP and Ubuntu 10.04. I figure I might as well keep XP for a few games and for syncing my iPod nano with iTunes.I want to set up my computer so that my music library on my windows partition will be accessible to Banshee (or perhaps another program) so that I can listen to my tunes in Linux. However, I want to make it so that Banshee can't actually edit my files/tags (I want to leave iTunes in charge of that). I just want it to be able to play the mp3s and aac's (none of my files are in DRM format luckily). So I guess what I am asking, is can I make my iTunes folder on the Windows partition READ-ONLY to the Linux OS maybe?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound On Clean 10.04 Lucid Lynx On A Thinkpad T61?

Sep 26, 2010

I've installed a clean Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx on my ThinkPad T61, and everything seems to be OK, but I am unable to get any sound output at all (internal speakers and external audio).

No system sounds, no sound from Movie Player, Rythmbox, Sound Recorder.

On my previous Ubuntu 9.04 and 9.10 I had no problems with sound (as far as I can recall).

Any hints to what I should do to try to get sound output?

The output from various sound related commands included below.

Code:
$ sudo lshw -C sound
*-multimedia
description: Audio device
product: 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Use Quad Monitor ATI FGLX On Lucid Lynx?

May 23, 2010

I'm having an annoying issue with my display configuration.

Some specs:

Motherboard: MSI 760gm-e51
CPU: AMD Phenom II 955 Quadcore
MEM: 8Gbs DDR3
VGA: ATI Radeon HD4850
ATI Radeon 3000 (on board)

All four monitors work fine with two X servers ( 2 monitors each instances) on Ubuntu 9.10 with surroundview enabled in the BIOS. I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.4 and all i get is 4 blank screens. when i disable surroundview in the BIOS with PCIE as default display the HD4850 work great. I should add that on both installs i used the latest atalyst 10.4. It seems like there's something wrong with Ubuntu 10.04.

Here's the xorg.conf of the working Ubuntu 9.10:

Code:

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "aticonfig Layout"
Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 1050
Screen "amdcccle-Screen[1]-0" 624 0

I have worked the last 2 years (with an ocasionally glith in the volume) but not having Mic is a real PITAo what can I try to fix it? Please, don't tell me "remove all pulse audio stuff"... It must be another way.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Music Suddenly Stopped Playing In Lucid Lynx?

Jun 7, 2010

After a successful upgrade to lucid, everything was going GREAT (including FINALLY having surround output) until now all of the sudden music files won't play... When I double-click a file, Totem opens automatically, and it says it's playing,but there's no sound and the bar does not move across at the bottom. In VLC, the bar moves like it's playing, but there is still no sound. Doesn't work when I hover the cursor over a file, either. In previous versions of Ubuntu, a simple reboot would fix this, but that doesn't work with Lucid... Online streaming works fine.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Compile Amarok 1.4.10 In Ubuntu 10.04 "Lucid Lynx" ?

May 5, 2010

As my previous thread about compiling the good old Amarok 1.4.10 for 9.10 and make it work properly again was well accepted, I post here the script for doing the same for the recent version 10.04.

In the old thread, there are some really great improvements like a better wiki-patch: [url]

Code:

The ~/ before Downloads makes sure, that you can run the script from wherever you are in your system (stands for your home directory). Further, omit the checkinstall line, as this is not necessary in a script.. The sleep commands in between allow users to check, if everything went fine before going to the next step.

I can confirm the above script is working and Amarok 1.4.10 is set up correctly on a justsetup system.

And yes, I was to lazy too write a proper error handling^^

I didn't perform any larger testing.. Open the program an playback worked. My iPod worked also including artwork.

By the way: Because of self-compiling, a nice little extension program is working again, amarokFS (FullScreen).

That's the way to install it:

Code:

Ubuntu :: Wacom Bamboo CTL-460 In Lucid Lynx ?

Apr 20, 2010

Quote:

The new Wacom Bamboo Pen (CTL-460) doesn�t work in Ubuntu Lucid out-of-the-box. You need a newer kernel module than the one that comes with Lucid by default. It�s pretty easy to get it working though, you just need to know how.

First, install some compiling tools and header files:

Code:

Code:

Now unpack, configure compile and install it:

Code:

# I know this is the wrong version, but it's the highest available and it works

Code:

The tablet should work now. You can also add the module name to /etc/modules to automatically load it on boot.

He also says (and I can confirm) that the gray lines are the new borders of the tablet. A little annoying, but I imagine one could configure that, too.

Ubuntu Installation :: Bluetooth Under Lucid Lynx?

Apr 30, 2010

I have tried out Lucid Lynx Beta 1 back in march. During the installation I was announced that support for bluetooth was dropped. I installed anyway, thinking it would be back in the Final Release. Meanwhile (between March and April) I reinstalled Karmic because I really needed the bluetooth. I can see in the upgrade that bluetooth still isn't available. What should I do about this? Is there a way to keep Lucid Lynx and bluetooth? Or will I have to stay on Karmic until the end of times?

Ubuntu :: (10.04 Lucid Lynx) USB Keyboard Not Working?

May 17, 2010

I've got a generic USB keyboard (not wireless) that works perfectly on WinXP, the BIOS and the GRUB boot menu. As soon as Ubuntu 10.04 loads, however,he keyboard stops working. Tried different ports, still nothing. I haven't tested on previous versions of Ubuntu or other Linux distros. A PS/2 keyboard works great on Ubuntu except the one I have is broken, hence why I'm using this USB keyboard. Any ideas on how to fix this? It's the only thing holding me back from leaving Windows for good. lsusb:Quote:

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Lucid Lynx Hangs On Login?

May 20, 2010

When I try logging in using any user name, ubuntu just returns to the login screen. I cannot actually log in. I used the recovery mode to create a new login with password 123456, and the same thing happens. What could it be? Ubuntu worked just fine for a while, then DKMS started causing problems, I had errors with upgrades, software installs/uninstalls, then my sound went. I found a great fix for the sound (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshooting), the sound came back, but then I could not log back in again. I cannot find any help for this issue, and had to install 9.10 Karmic Koala, and that's what I have been using for the past couple of days.10.04 has been fairly buggy for me and I am considering staying with 9.10, or going to another Linux distro.

Ubuntu :: Lucid Lynx - Keyboard Not Recognised?

Jun 1, 2010

I have just updated ubuntu from koala to lynx via reloading the synaptic repositories, and after having restarting, to boot into lynx, found that my laptop's keyboard doesnt work, none of the keys are reponding at all, which is odd as I have never had this problem with my laptop before.. I thought this might have been a (semi) common problem with lynx, but after a few searches, have not found anything similar to this problem..Does anybody have any idea what might be the problem here, I can still use the laptop to do things via the mouse and even access the internet and grab text and paste it for things, but obviously would like my keyboard back (i didnt write this on my laptop!) I am 99.9% sure it is not a hardware problem

Ubuntu :: How To Disable Touchpad In Lucid Lynx

Jun 13, 2010

I don't know how many has had this problem, but I understand I am not the only onehe problem is that after using synclient to disable the touchpad in 10.04 it would enable itself, seemingly, at random.Well, what I found was that unchecking the "Disable touchpad while typing" feature in "System->Preferences->Mouse->Touchpad" will fix the problem.Apparently the system does not recognize that the user has deliberately disabled the touchpad. And so it will reenable it when the user is "done typing".

Ubuntu :: End Admin Privileges Before 10 Min.s Are Up In Lucid Lynx?

Nov 12, 2010

I recently installed Maverick Meerkat on a hand me down laptop. And noticed that when I entered the password for admin privileges to install from the update manager, a key icon appeared on the top bar. I moused over it and saw I could use THAT to end privileges before the 10 minute grace was up. I should have thought of it before, and, small as it is, I thought this was a great feature.So, when I upgraded from Karmic Koala to Lucid Lynx on my desktop, I thought that feature would be there, but it's not.So first I'm wondering if it's there, but just not default. If so, how do I get that icon to appear? If not, how do I otherwise end admin privileges early?
