Ubuntu Multimedia :: Screen Recorder - Can Select The Window/window Size The Axis
Jul 17, 2011
I have asked for a video capturing software before but recommend a GOOD screen recorder where you can select the window/window size the axis and also a good editing software which will render/export into FULL 720p HD
i'm not sure for using the correct channel here but i hope someone out there can answer my little questions. 1st in older version i was able to change the settings of the terminal look as the font color, background color and so on. I was also able to define a default window size of a new terminal window. But since after upgrading to to the first release this year and a complete new installation of the current release Maverick i do not find this option anymore. Is there a way how to set up the terminal default window size?
Can the size of the Ubuntu desktop window be reduced so that it displays on a monitor or via a data projector with a surrounding black border? If so, how? The tragicomic chain of events which leads to the question is as follows. Community group, short of cash, want to equip lecture room. Pull-down screen is set up permanently on one wall. Contractor sets up old data projector via ceiling mount. Data projector is just too far away from wall, such that image cannot be reduced sufficiently by the data projector to fit on the screen.
Annoyingly the image, as displayed, is only slightly too large - just enough to lose the top and bottom panels, Applications menu, File Menu on full-size windows, Indicator applet, Trash, and restore desktop button. The data projector is hooked up via VGA cable to a recycled PC running Ubuntu 10.04 with proprietary NVidia driver (version 173) for GeForce 8400 GS. I'll give anything to be able to do this on the PC, rather than having to move the projector!
In 10.4 I had set my default terminal size to my screen width - I type some long commands. After running an update this morning, my terminal comes up in the install default size. Using the preferences dialog, I cannot find the control to set the default width. Has it been removed? I hope I'm looking in the wrong place, but I have a chilling feeling that it's been dropped or perhaps just accidentally commented out.
How do I move the Window control buttons when the window is in full screen mode? I.e.: I know how to go into gconf-editor:
Code: gconf-editor --> apps --> metacity --> general --> button layout = ":minimize,maximize,close" (I've intentionally disabled the menu...)
What I want is my window controls to be on the right side of the window when the window is in full screen mode.
Also I've had an issue with the Unity dockbar glitching out. I can still click on the buttons (i.e. the logout button) but it displays like a nintendo game inserted crooked. Is there a way to 'restart' unity without log out/ log in?
Any one else experienced any glitches with unity auto hiding/showing?
I have a SONY digital voice recorder Model ICD-PX720. Its driver only supports Window environment and thus I have not been able to transfer the recordings (lectures) to my notebook for eventual burning on to a CD. Is there a driver or any alternative
On my system (Ubuntu 9.x -> 10.x) I have always had the problem of not being able to select the edges of a window in order to change the window size. It seems that the 'hot' zone, which defines the window border selection area, is only 1 pixel wide. I find it very difficult to position the mouse pointer over this zone. Even if I am successful (which usually takes more than 20 tries), as soon as I begin to depress the mouse button, the merest movement causes the pointer to move off the 'hot' zone - and selection fails. The only work-around I have found is to select a corner point of a window -which seems much less sensitive - and then drag the window border in either a vertical or horizontal direction, rather than diagonally. But this is counter-intuitive and unsatisfactory.
I am new to debian. While I am playing a video in vlc or in any other player its playing well in small sized window, but if i am making it full screen the video is getting blur...blinking..getting slow..but sound is okay.
I recently installed Linux Mint 8 (main) on my P.C.. When I select the main menu and activate the Terminal, all that comes up is a blank white window--The same thing happens when I try to run Software Manager or Synaptic. Could you please instruct me how to fix this problem.
(I hope I am not repeating myself here, as I have tried to send this before but don't see the post): I now have upgraded to Suse 11.4 and I can't find how to set the console settings. It fills the whole screen, and the font is tiny. I am able to enlarge the font, but not to change the window size. Under 11.2, I was able to set the font, and an 80 characters per line, 40 lines window, and then make all that permanent.
But when I look at the advertized window size it's only 1K? Why is it not set to more than that? I should see it 16M somewhere it doesn't start with it neither does it scale that much. tcp_window_scaling is also set to 1
In Ubuntu 10.04 using Document Viewer 2.30.0 I've noticed that every time I open the program or a PDF file I haven't opened before the window size seems to reset to default. Thumbnails sidebar re-enables, view goes back to "Fit Page Width" and the actual size of the window goes back to being very small (default).
Whenerver I try to log on to our Windows 2008 R2 server via rdesktop, the window stays at the same small size. I can neither enlarge the window at the borders nor maximize it. Alt+Ctrl+Enter simply gives me the same window-content on the full screen with the rest simply grey.
Is that normal behaviour for rdesktop? Is there an alternative?
How do I get Nautilus to "remember it's window size? It seems that with F12 when I open a nautilus window it starts at some preset default size, and even though I change it and then close it. It returns to the default size when I open it again.
I have 11.2 32 bit running in ESXi on a Dell 2850 in my colo and its working just fine. I even set the VM to allow large resolutions and am running the console at 1440x900. At first I also had the issue with just a black screen and white X pointer, but after reading I found that going into YaST > etc/sysconfig > Desktop > Display Manager > Setting of: DISPLAYMANAGER_REMOTE_ACCESS: > and changing the value from yes to no then back to yes again then rebooting, all was good.
Now on to my actual issue. Now that I can get to my system remotely via RealVNC and don't have to keep an open session logged in (ala Remote Desktop) I am finding that the window is stuck at 1024x768. I just cant find where I need to change the geometry settings to make it 1440 x 900 like my console window is in ESXi. Have been doing a lot of reading and have tried a bunch of stuff but none of it works, too much to list. I am obviously missing something and its probably really simple, but I am just not getting it.
The issue is that Gnome will not "remember" the size and location of the window in which an app was last run. For example - I run Disk Usage Analyzer and stretch the window to be the full height of the screen and about half the width of the screen and move it to the far left of the desktop. I then close the app. The next time I run it the app comes up in a "default" window size, not the size I last used, positioned randomly on the desktop.
p.s. I should add that some apps seem to remember their prior window size/position. For example OpenOffice.org, Firefox, Nautilus.
I am in the process of customizing my desktop, and I have run into a problem. As a programmer, I will invariable end up with tons of windows open. I would like to expand the gnome-panel's Window List's y size to allow more applications to show without being crunched together.
That's the way the desktop currently looks, notice the tiny Window List in the top left. That's as big as it gets. I want to expand it all along the entire left side. I have a feeling the answer is in gconf-editor, but i just can't find the right field to modify.
I can't stand looking at the ugly, off-center, non-themed maximize/minimize/close buttons in the maximized global menu. Is it possible to set a window to maximize *below* the top panel? Or at least to have its set fixed size be its fixed size when not maximized?
Using Compiz window rules I've been able to set a fixed size in some applications (Opera, for example), but whenever I open them, the window automatically opens as maximized. When I un-maximize, it reverts to whatever size it wants, and having to resize my windows all the time is a pain.
I had a friend load Ubuntu on my PC. Everything work pretty well except i cant use the effects like rain, fire, wobbly window or drag my window into another one of my desktop. My comp has Radeon HD3100 Graphics card in it. Is there any graphics drivers I can dl to make the stuff work.
If you don't know, users are able to quickly resize windows using the "ALT+MiddleClick" key shortcut/combo. Basically, hold the ALT key, and mouse middle click and hold on a window. Move the mouse around, and it will resize the window for you.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1) Open a single Window.
2) Near the bottom-right-hand corner of the window, ALT+MiddleClick and drag. It should resize. Great. It works.
What Doesn't Work:
Now, the problem arises when you have multiple windows open on the desktop, they are "layered". i.e. you might have several windows open "behind" the one currently "up front". Example:
If I try to ALT+MiddleClick the "foreground window", it rarely actually resizes THAT window, and instead jumps one of the windows from behind to the front, and resizes that one instead!
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
1) Open 3x gnome-terminal windows and say some nautilus window. Place them overtop one another. (like the above image)
2) Try to ALT+MiddleClick the foreground window.
3) Repeat this always trying to grab the foreground window.
For me, the window manager seems to bring some window from the background to the front! Desktop Recording of the Problem: [URL]

I recently upgraded the motherboard/processor on my computer (as in quadrupled the processor and octupled the ram). The new board has a built in GPU (intel) and from searching the forums, I think this is part of the problem. Every time I boot up the computer, I need to open the Compiz icon and use it to reload the window manager before I see any title bars, borders, etc. 've tried the .bashrc hack (metacity --replace), but that doesn't do anything. In fact, whenever I open the terminal, I need to have two tabs open in order to use it, and when I close it all the borders go away again (even when I haven't done anything). Also, the onboard sound card (intel) doesn't work, but that's another task (I at least have a compatible card for that).
I'm using the Gnome desktop in openSUSE 11.3. I've set the "Command" to gnome-terminal --geometry=80x58 for the Gnome terminal in its Launcher Properties. This opens a terminal of the size I want every time I click it. However, when I right-click the desktop and click "open in terminal" it opens a terminal of a much smaller size and I can't figure out how to correct this. The same thing happens when I click: File->Open Terminal from a terminal window, and also when I click File->Open in Terminal from from the File Browser. Why am I getting a much smaller window and how to fix?
