Ubuntu :: Firefox 3.6.15 Images Grainy

Mar 19, 2011

I've noticed that after an update, possibly a week ago, that Firefox 3.6.15 images are grainy. If you look at the attached image, you'll see that the banner is grainy and jagged. The fonts appear on this news site to be okay although frequently the fonts are messed up as well. Don't mind the personal bookmarks toolbar, I smudged it on purpose. BTW, the same page in Chromium looks as it should.

General :: In Firefox Images Appear To Be Grainy

Feb 23, 2010

images in firefox appear to be grainy when being displayed along with text. for example the linuxquestions.org icon on the top left corner of this very page is very grainy ( low quality ... jerky ... un-antialiased dunno how else to explain it) and the same image when opened in a separate tab ( only the image) appears to have changed its quality .. very lean and clear.

Note: this happens only on linux and in every distribution I came across including mandriva, opensuse, slackware, sidux etc.

Specifications: Dell Studio 1450 laptop with 4 gigs of RAM and 500 gigs of HDD ATI Mobility Radeon 4530 ... driver installed.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Fullscreen Flash Videos Appearing BEHIND The Browser

Apr 3, 2011

Ubuntu 64-bit

Every once in a while, clicking the fullscreen icon on a Flash video will result in the video playback overlay appearing behind the actual browser requiring the browser to be minimised to see the video. Sometimes this will minamise both and I can't watch it at all. Reproducible with this video [URL]

General :: Bad Video - Square Boxes Appearing At Random Places

Mar 9, 2010

I have a couple things I think is my video card. One annoying thing it does is to put half inch square boxes in random places and times that might be trying to display what was in that spot before you changed the window. Sometimes it can be important information so I had to find a way to do something about it. I couldn't get rid of them but I could move them out of the way by moving the pointer to a different area and turning the scroll wheel. That would put the square in the new area where the pointer was.

The other thing is very bad scroll control. Sometimes I would have to use the arrows in the corner. Sometimes I had to drag the slider which moved hard, not at all or very delayed. The squares also make highlighting very difficult. Because an area will not be highlighted you don't know the results until you paste it. It might be perfect. I believe the video card is on the motherboard. I do have a spare slot so If needed I could put in a new one. Where is my title bar at the top of a screen which allows you to move it around or -minimize or maximize or close.

My friend has Ubuntu on his computer and he told me that one day when he turned It on all the text and Images on his computer are small. This even happens when he opens the Internet, not just on his desktop. Could this be an Ubuntu problem or could there be a setting that was accidentally switched?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Hdmi Not Working With Sharp Tv - Drivers ?

Jan 4, 2011

I cant seem to get my sharp tv connected to my compaq presario cq50. by hdmi

I followed this:

1. I connected the HDMI cable to my laptop with the TV already on (my laptop was on too).

2. Went to NVIDIA X Server Settings, then to X Server Display Configuration and on the Display Tab I chose my TV (Samsung) as the "model", then configure it so that the TwinView mode was switched on, then I changed the resolution to 1920x1080, position: absolute and then I checked the box "Make this the primary display for the X server" (I guess this is what I was missing in the first place).

3. Clicked on Apply and then my TV started to show what I was doing on my laptop.

My computers reading the tv but when i click apply its still blank and i lose my mouse and boarders on my computer

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Old Desktop For Media Player - Video Is Not Very Sharp

Sep 21, 2010

After seeing how good netflix movies looked over a wireless connection I decided to pull out an old desktop to see if I could up a basic media player . I loaded Ubuntu 10.4 and was impressed how fast and clean the computer ran. I also downloaded the latest version of boxee. I was disappointed with the quality of video; video was not very sharp, there were square blocks(pixelated) in dark areas of the picture. At this point I am trying to decide if the poor quality is due to my video card, boxee, CPU or if I am expecting too much from web content. should I just a browser or VLC. Naturally I would like to spend little money and use what I have. If however my hardware is not salvageable for what I want to use it for, I would like to know. Any opinions?

Specs are:
-P4 , Dual Processors 3.2G
-2 Gig Ram
-Sata Drives
-Nvidia Fx5200 AGP 128 Ram
-Nic 100
Network speed 25 Mb/s down

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Strange Boxes, Lines And Unreadable Fonts?

Jun 9, 2010

My video suddenly stopped working. I get strange lines across the screen, a weird white box around the cursor and all the fonts are messed up (much similar to this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1395788)I think the problem started when updating to kernel 2.6.31-22, but booting into 2.6.31-21 (which worked just a few days ago) does not solve the problem. I have also tried to disable all screen effects and I have installed the radeonhd driver - without any luck.

Debian Multimedia :: Installing VNC Server - Few Untangle Boxes Around

May 4, 2011

I'm sort of an incidental Debian user -- Untangle installs with a customized version of Debian (2.6.26) and I have a few Untangle boxes around. I've searched with Google and also in this forum for some guidance in installing VNC Server and have run into a brick wall. Basically I need to see my Untangle boxes' GUI remotely on Windows mostly to run Wireshark. There are some X clients that install on Windows, but I've not got any of them to work well enough to rely on.

I use VNC routinely between Windows boxes, so I thought maybe that would be a better option. Unfortunately, all the instructions I've found to install the VNC server on Debian have been inoperative. They typically say something like "apt-get install vncserver" which results in an error because it can't find "vncserver" anywhere. Now I know that this has been done by others, so it's clearly possible.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: AAC Audio Profile Not Appearing In Banshee 1.6.0?

May 17, 2010

In usr/share/banshee-1/audio-profiles/ there is an audio profile called "aac-novell", which is used to encode CDs to m4a format.

The problem is, this audio profile does not appear in Banshee itself, and I don't know what the problem could be (I've got every AAC encoder dependency installed).
Has someone been able to use this audio profile?

Ubuntu :: Resolution During Bootup, Shutdown, Switching Users, And The Theme Icons Look Very Grainy & Cheap?

Nov 4, 2010

I have a problem where the resolution during bootup, shutdown, switching users, and the theme icons look very grainy & cheap. It might have started when I booted in failsafe graphics mode and after that, it never went away. Could be wrong about how it happened but is there a way to get out of failsafe mode? Or a way to reconfigure default, normal graphics?

Debian Multimedia :: VMware Interferes With QEMU / GNOME Boxes

Nov 3, 2015

I currently have GNOME Boxes and Oracle VM VirtualBox installed on my Debian 8 system, and it works well. However, I recently installed VMware Workstation Player 12, and that seems to work too. However, I've noticed that since I've installed VMware, the networking in my GNOME Boxes virtual machines does not work. Also, every time I go to my networking settings, I see virtual networking devices for VMware that are really annoying. Why don't I have virtual networking adapters pop up for VirtualBox or GNOME Boxes? How can I get VMware and GNOME Boxes to play nice together?

Debian Multimedia :: Personal Icon Not Appearing In Login Screen

May 31, 2015

I recently installed Debian 8 with the Xfce Desktop Environment, which uses the Lightdm gtk greeter as its login manager. My login screen at the moment looks something like this: [URL] ..... In particular, I still have the "grey person" as the default user avatar.

I have been unsuccessfully attempting to change my personal login avatar, following the advice on the Arch Linux wiki: [URL] .... I began by naming my desired avatar .face and saving it in my home directory. That didn't work, but I was not discouraged because the wiki mentioned that there were issues with the ".icon method". So I then installed accountservice, created a directory for my user, and saved my desired avatar as a 96x96 PNG named username.png in the appropriate directory (making sure that it had the necessary permissions, of course). That didn't work either...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Different Images Will Pop Up For Less Than A Second?

Jan 20, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 with an NVIDIA GeForce 6100 video adapter and my monitor seems to flicker whenever the the computer is processing. My system is up to date and I did install the recommended NVIDIA driver. The monitor isn't going blank or anything like that, it just seems like every once in a while different images will pop up for less than a second. Any ideas as to what the problem might be? I've attached a copy of the xorg.conf file as well:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
DefaultDepth 24
Section "Module"
Load "glx"

Ubuntu :: Sharp Windows-like Font Rendering Not Working?

May 20, 2010

I am running ubuntu 10.04 and am using nvidia drivers and my resolution is 1680x1050.

I've been trying to get the windows-like font rendering to work, but I'm having problems with almost every font except Tahoma for some reason. I installed microsoft fonts using this tutorial.

(LINK) This is how bad the fonts look in google chrome
(LINK)This is what my xorg.conf looks like
(LINK)This is my .fonts.conf, I have anti-alising disabled for all fonts there (I think), so the fonts would be sharp

Software :: Download Some Images From A Website - Single Column Of Links To The Images?

Jul 26, 2010

I am running Linux from a DVD, not installed. I am not good with installing software, but since the DVD cannot be corrupted, I am content to operate this way. Lately, I have been having problems that previously did not occur. When I try to click on the checkbox to get rid of emails, it doesn't register in most cases, or when it does, I am clicking multiple times so it registers twice, meaning it is unchecked again. Even more frustrating is some issues that are affecting my ability to update my business. I am trying to modify spreadsheets (text not calculations).

Whenever I try to click & drag to select something to change, it keeps jumping around to select only some of what I want, something else or some combination of the 2. When I try to copy and paste several fields from 1 column to another, everything from the several fields in the source column ends up together in the last field in the target column. I am also trying to download some images from a website. There is a single column of links to the images. I have to click on the link to get to the image in order to copy it, then back out to continue looking for more links to do the same.

My computer keeps jumping back 2 steps, then forward 2 steps, and sometimes I lose my place in that list. I could deal with it if it were a small number of links, but this is a list of probably close to 20,000 links. Again, i am operating off of a live DVD so this should not be corruptible, but this has just started happening, and has been an issue the last several sessions.
