Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Restart A Video Driver (NVidia)

Sep 21, 2010

I'm using my Ubuntu 10.04 as a server, headless or with HDMI receiver/TV setup. There is a lot's of topics how to make it work headless/VNS. I found the least trouble is to make a fake VGA from old VGA cable and 3 resistors. However, when I start my Ubuntu with Fake VGA it won't switch to HDMI when I turn my Receiver/HDMI on. If I restart X it is fastest way to pick the HDMI Video/7.1 Audio up. I can do it via VNC or ssh and going to do it with 'irexec' so my wife will be able to redetect the HDMI and run XBMC with one button click of the remote.The problem is restarting X kills all my GUI apps (KTorrent, ...). Is there a way to force the video driver to restart or redetect the screens?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: NVidia Driver Configuration Lost After Restart

Nov 14, 2010

I have installed the current Nvidia driver(s) for my video card:
nvidia-gfxGO2-kmp-desktop 260.19.12_k2.6.34.0_12-24.1
x11-video-nvidiaGO2 260.19.12-25.1
nvidia-settings 256.35.0.pm. 1.1
xorg-x11-driver-vido-nouveau 0.0.15_20100401_bfb95cc-1.10
libXNVCtrl 256.35-0.pm.2.1

Now my problem is everytime I save the configuration for
- the open GL settings
- the anti aliasing settings
- the powermizing settings
with the GUI-programm NVIDIA X Server Settings under GNOME

Every setting is lost completely after a restart of my system and the defaults are reset even if i save the configuration in the menu nvidia-settings configuration of the GUI-programm NVIDIA X Server Settings. Is there a possibility to SAVE the settings? They should stay after a reboot.
I think this is a issue very spread under several Linux distributions. I can't understand the source of the mistake or bug.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: X Restart Needed To Play Video Files After Changes To Nvidia Settings?

Apr 16, 2010

I run Ubuntu 9.04 on with proprietary NVidia driver 180.44.When I change anything in the nvidia-settings, e.g. screen resolution, brightness, second screen etc, everything works fine - except for the fact that I can't play any video files in any player. Sound is there, players don't display any error messages, but the image is black. Flash video within browsers is fine, though.Things go back to normal with the new settings kept after restarting X. However, having to restart X and lose my desktop set up every time when I just want to connect my laptop to my office screen is highly inconvenient.Is this a bug or expected behaviour that I have to live with?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.04 Video Hangs & Flashes And Resumes NVIDIA Driver?

Oct 14, 2010

I have the most bizarre problem that started with 10.04. Up until 10.04 I had zero problems with my setup. I am convinced this has something to do with NVIDIA 7100GS and 10.04.

Here is the problem in a nutshell. I have my home desktop, which I upgraded to 10.04 from 9.10. Everything went just fine except when it booted up and I logged in, the video "shut off", the computer "hung" for about 10 seconds, then came back. I'm able to use it for about 10 seconds then the same thing happens. Video blanks, system hangs, comes back.

I've tried turning off compiz, no effect. I've tried nvidia-current along with other versions (including the one from the website) and they ALL have the same problem. I know it's not a hardware issue as I can boot the live CD just fine. I also upgraded to 10.04.1 and that worked fine until I installed the nvidia drivers. Here is what I dont understand either. I did a apt-get remove --purge nvidia* and the problem still existed after that.

Something is seriously wonky. I REALLY don't want to re-install the entire box. Now, here is something else that doesnt make sense. I have 10.04 installed on my work box with a Nvidia 9800 graphics card and I have no issues at all.

Hardware :: NVIDIA Proprietary Driver - Resolution Changes Not Saved On Restart - Fedora 14

Dec 20, 2010

I recently installed Fedora 14 KDE and NVIDIA proprietary driver for GeForce FX 5200. I'm able to change the resolution to 1920x1080 (Acer H213H 21.5" lcd monitor), but when I restart the box, I lose these settings and I have to fiddle with NVIDIA and KDE monitor settings until I get the settings back.

Here is my xorg.conf file:

Code:

Is this (in)correct? What else can I try in order to keep my resolution at 1920x1080? When I restart, it reverts to 640x480.

I didn't have this problem before installing NVIDIA driver, however, I had visual anomalies and slowness in video refresh/repaint whenever moving windows. I don't want to go back to that so I'd like to see how to permanently propagate my resolution settings through reboots of this box. I've search multiple forums with no relevant hits as far as I was able to discern.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Old Video Card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT Now Beginning To Fail - Which Way Is Best, ATI Or Nvidia?

May 3, 2010

I have an old video card, Nvidia XFX 7800GT, which is now beginning to fail and I need to upgrade. I am not huge a gamer but I do play/buy games on regular basis. Right now I'm playing Eternal Lands on the Linux side. Looking to spend $100-$150 on a new card.I have a Core2Duo Wolfdale 3.0, with 2ghz ram and run Lucid 32bit. Also run windows Vista64Ultimate on dual boot (rarely).

I would love to buy a new ATI 5770 or 5830, ATI budget cards seem to be much better for the buck over budget Nvidia cards, but I'm concerned with ATI drivers and long term with Ubuntu.On the Nvidia side I'm considering the GTS 250. The only advantage I can find is lower power consumption with Nvidia and Ubuntu has always preferred Nvidia over ATI, as far as working drivers go.As Far as Ubuntu and Lucid is concerned, which way is best, ATI or Nvidia? Has anything changed with ATI support, that could make theor cards more compatible now and in the future?

Debian Hardware :: How To Install Nvidia Driver For Video Card

Uh oh. Your card is not supported by any driver version up to 304.125.
A newer driver may add support for your card.
Newer driver releases may be available in backports.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Which Nvidia Video Driver To Use And Push The Resolution?

Apr 19, 2010

New pooter, just installed SuSE 11.1. Would appreciate some insight into which Nvidia driver is right for my system, and what is the maximum resolution I can use without potentially causing any damage (if that's even a real concern).Here are the specifics.

[Code]...

So, now the questions.

a) Should I leave both sets of drivers installed, or should I delete one of them?

b) If delete, which should be taken off?

c) If neither of these drivers is the right one, which do you suggest I get instead?

d) I currently have the resolution set at 1920X1440. Is there any reason to worry that I might be overdriving anything and potentially causing damage to the system?

Hardware :: No Sound Through Inboard HDMI On Fedora 12 With Proprietary NVIDIA Video Driver

Aug 5, 2010

Under Fedora 12, I have installed the proprietary NVIDIA graphics driver successfully and am now attempting to use the onboard HDMI output. (The board has HDMI and VGA out built in.) I am getting a clear picture on the TV screen, although the edge of the screen output hangs off all edges of the physical screen. The HDMI audio output is being detected, but no sound come out of the TV when I switch the sound output from the Analog Sterio Duplex to HDMI Output in the Sound Preferences. Any suggestions, and what further information is required?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Video File Colours Messed Up Every Time Restart?

Nov 12, 2010

every time I reboot and play a video file the colours are messed up. I need to manually increase then decrease the hue or saturation to get the picture to normal in smplayer. The colours aren't competely inversed as in the common bug with the totem sliders, they're just far too red and bright.Smplayer is the latest from PPA. I've checked the totem settings and everything is OK. It only takes two key presses to resolve but it's a pain, to be honest, so if anyone knows what causes this and how to fix it permanently I'd be much obliged.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Best NVIDIA Driver For Quadro2 Pro - Slow Performance On Browser Display Video

Jan 27, 2011

I went back to Suse 11.2, it comes with the 'nv' driver for my NVIDIA Quadro2 Pro (64 MB) and I'm getting some slow performance on browser display and sometimes video playing. Not always, I recently saw a 2 hr long movie on Blue Ray resolution, so the problem is not hardware, it's software. I saw several links here on how to install other drivers and a 1-click install link on this page but my question is, since this is an old card... which driver is the best for this card ?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Nvidia-glx-173 Driver Won't Download - Keeps Asking For CD

I've installed 9.10 and wish to use the nvidia-glx-173 driver as recommended by jockey. Using the jocky GUI just hangs at 100% cpu, a significant portion of which is the cdrom process; I've tried installing the package directly in aptitude and get the error:

Code:

Media Change: Please insert the disc labeled 'Ubuntu 9.10 _Karmic Koala_ - Release i386 (20091028.5)' in the drive '/cdrom/' and press [Enter]. The installation disc (standard x86 disk from shipit) doesn't satisfy it. How do I get aptitude to just download it from online repositories?
