Ubuntu Multimedia :: Split Screen Is Not Working Correctly?

Feb 11, 2010

I just installed 9.10 on my acer as a second partition. The only problem I am having is my split screen is not working correctly. They just mirror each other so I have basically 2 monitors doing exactly the same thing. No splits. My graphics card is nvidia geforce 7300 LE.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Non Standard Resolutions With Split Screen View

Mar 18, 2011

I have 2 screens connected by vga/dvi and need to use different resolutions...at the minute ubuntu is forcing the same for both. Where should I start looking. I have two video files recorded simultaneously. I want to edit them into one video file with non-standard resolution and a split screen view which, two videos can be seen together. I tried kdenlive but I was unable to change the output resolution.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Xserver Not Working Correctly

Oct 19, 2010

I had my Lenovo T60 laptop working on Ubuntu 10.10 with visual effects and everything except for one thing the screen would flicker constantly I began to fiddle around with the Xserver trying to fix the flickering but I somehow regressed and am now unable to use visual effects. The Xserver fails to load any devices when I try to start it. Included is a copy of my xorg.conf file.

# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig

Fedora :: NVidia And Compiz Installed And Working But Screen Doesn't Refresh Correctly?

Oct 30, 2010

What it does is, if you do something to change anything on the screen, for example, highlighting text, or switching from one tab/menu in an application to another. The screen doesn't show the change. The only way to SEE the change is to do something else to the screen, like grabbing and moving the application around, or scrolling the page of a website, etc. If you don't do that, you won't see what's really on the screen, but rather what WAS on the screen.

Another example:

*) say you have an application open with 3 tabs: tab1, tab2, and tab3.
*) Switch from tab1 to tab2 and you see no change on the screen.
*) Switch from tab2 to tab3 and you see tab 2 on the screen, NOT tab 3.
*) Switch from tab3 to tab 2 and you see tab3 on the screen, and NOT tab2.

Or, if you're typing in this box to make a post, and you hit ctrl+a to select all, you see no change. If you click in the box to deselect all, then it looks like you've selected all text still. The only way to see what's currently on the screen is to scroll the text box or page just a bit, or, if you're using an application, then you'd have to move it around on the screen a bit.

As i've said, the nVidia drivers are installed and working, as well as compiz, etc.

[=v=]$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RD890 Northbridge only single slot PCI-e GFX Hydra part (rev 02)
00:02.0 PCI bridge: ATI Technologies Inc RD890 PCI to PCI bridge (PCI express gpp port B)


Also, i did BOTH the dracut thing, and the extra kernel paramter in the grub.conf. So, nouveau is blacklisted. Oddly enough though, i do NOT have this problem when using the nouveau driver...

Also, fwiw, i think that i should mention that i'm not using the "Desktop Settings > Enable Desktop Effects" method, because i always seem to have problems with getting certain features to work, like the background for the cube skydome, etc. How i do it is that i install a package called compiz-manager, and i have it set to run at session start. This makes all of the compiz features work fine. One thing that i've noticed though, is that on my other workstation, i haven't set that up yet, and it seems that is is NOT having the same issue. While compiz-manager was running, i tried to use the "desktop settings" method, and it crapped out and reverted back to the old school desktop. I then tried it again, and it reloaded compiz, and there is no screen update issues now. So it seems that you have to have both of them running in order to get all of the compiz options to work, and not have the screen refresh issue?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Test Microphone Working Correctly

Jun 17, 2011

I have a Logitech ClearChat Stereo headset, and can hear music playing with the headset connected to the PC speakers (external Logitech). Have setup Empathy to be able to talk to someone using Google Talk. It seems to have been setup correctly, as I can see 2 contacts in the offline list. I don't have PulseAudio installed (I think ??), and can see only System | Preferences | Sound , which doesn't show me much. Here are the settings at present (inboard audio card) ..

:~$ sudo aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC1200 Analog [ALC1200 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0 .....

How can I test that the microphone is working correctly?

I know once I am an in `screen`, I can type C-a S to get a split screen. But is there a way to specify this as an argument to the `screen` command so it starts automatically with a split screen?

Ubuntu :: C++ IDE And/or Text Editor With Split Screen?

Ubuntu :: Terminal Split Current Screen

Ubuntu :: Split Screen Option Doesn't Work?

Nov 24, 2010

I have inadvertently caused the main menu (Applications,Places and System) icons to change to a single icon, a white triangle. I've tried to put back the default but no luck. How can I restore the original?

On workspaces, I created a second workspace but the Workspace Switcher doesn't want to show the 2nd workspace; the display should show a blank window. Also the split screen option doesn't work. Do I need an applet (Pager) to sort this out?

Ubuntu :: Weird Split Screen Effect On Arcade Monitor / Fix It?

Aug 30, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu for a while on my laptop so I thought I'd also run it on my arcade machine. The monitor can handle a resolution up to at least 704x513 60hz (the resolution the original arcade game used) and uses composite sync. I've spent some time using xrandr to get the resolution, refresh rate and sync polarities that I need.

These are the commands I used to set my resolution.code...

But it has the same effect since I have the hsync and vsync wired into a composite sync anyway.

What I get is this weird split screen effect that's in the picture. It looks like I'm missing something I just cant figure it out!

Installation :: Video Split Screen With All Live CD's?

Jul 10, 2010

I've downloaded Ubuntu, Fadora, Linux Mint and Suse, trying to run their live cd's on my old IBM A21p. Each time the screen splits vertically when the package enters the desktop. I'm certain that it's the ATI 128 mobile graphics card in the machine, but I don't have a clue about how to resolve the problem. I would love to run Linux on this system, but I don't have the technical background to get past the initial issue, which is the screwed up graphics.

Ubuntu :: Microphone Not Working Correctly?

Dec 28, 2010

I just got a new headset ("Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset")to use with some games I play but I can't seem to get it working properly. I've tested it with both Heroes of Newerth and Teamspeak 3 (Linux clients for both of them) and I get the exact same problem in both - it seems to detect the microphone and sound from it, but intermittently. When I test it, people can hear my voice but it drops in and out about every half second (So "Hello how are you" sounds like "He-- ho- -re yo-").On the other hand if I go into the sound recorder everything works fine. But the fact that it's exactly the same problem in both of those other programs suggests to me that it's a problem with the way I have my input drivers/settings set up in Ubuntu but I have no idea how to troubleshoot that. Any suggestions? I can post logs or something but I don't know what to post (I'm still pretty new to Linux).

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Graphics Card Not Working - No Screen Output

Oct 12, 2010

Just fitted an Inno3D (I-7300LE-G4E3) graphics card and I get a distorted boot up screen, a virtually unreadble boot menu (lots of extra white bits all over the screen) and when the system is booting the black screen with "booting from .." and the underscore at the end, is covered with white commas (?!), then the login screen pops up for a fraction of a second, then get a blank screen and no signal-cant get anything after this (or from the vga port on the pc)-I ve tried logging in even though I cant see anything, but no music , nothing.

Thought I might have to download drievers AFTER I d installed it, but as I had this problem, I removed it and tried to download driers before installation. Not sure which of the 4 to try, but tried 2 and neither works-GDebi is offered as an app to open them but nothing happens, nothing happens if I just click on them and when I try and install them from a terminal with the script from the nVidia site, it says unable to open them.

Debian Multimedia :: KDE Lock Screen Not Working

Jul 11, 2015

Just upgraded to Jessie from Wheezy. The process went smoothly.

I've noticed the lock screen is inescapable. The "Unlock" button does nothing, the keyboard is completely disabled, and all I have is a clock to stare at for all of eternity until I force a reboot. It doesn't hang or freeze, I'm just unable to get out of the lock screen. I've tried configuring the widgets and stuff in the System Settings, but I can't make it usable.

It was working perfectly in Wheezy, and is a pretty important feature that I use all the time when other people are around and I need to leave my station.
