Ubuntu Multimedia :: Windows Display Larger Than The Available Screen Size

Sep 1, 2011

In Ubuntu 11.04, all windows display larger than the available screen size, and I haven't found a way to make them fit within the display area of the monitor. This is a Dell 19" flat screen monitor, and I've tried changing the display; no matter what resolution is selected, the windows all bleed past the screen.

General :: Virtualized Screen Resolution - Use A Larger Size Display That Is Configured By Default

Apr 18, 2010

I have a 64 bit Ubuntu 9.10 workstation with two virtualized guest OSes using KVM/QEMU. Also both 64-bit. One is Fedora 12 the other is beta of Ubuntu 10.04.

The problem is that I would like to use a larger size display that is configured by default.

Both guest OSes have a maximum screen resolution of 1024x768. I would like to increase this to something like 1280x900 or 1440x900. The resolution of the host system is 1920x1080.

This configuration appears to be a result of the installation detecting the resolution being reported by the virtual screen during installation.

The only information I have found on the subject suggests modifying the xorg.conf file in the /etc/X11 directory. Neither guest system has this file.

I tried creating one by hand in the Fedora system and managed to render it completely unusable. Not a big deal as this is recently installed and can be reinstalled easily.

Debian :: Driver - Screen Can't Expand To The Full Size Of The Display

Feb 26, 2010

Mobo - Asus M4A78T-E
CPU - Phenom II X4 955
RAM - DDR3 1333 dualchannel 8G
Display - Samsung 2494
Debian 504 64bit

Where can I download respective drivers. Linux drivers coming with the mobo can't work. There is no driver for Linux on the CD coming with the display. Fonts becomes very large even selecting "8". The screen can't expand to the full size of the display.

I know that you can make it full screen, however it just makes the background OS's background black, and still provides a smaller display. Is it possible to make the guest OS's screen (or display) full size?

Ubuntu :: DD Image Restores Larger Than Actual Size

Feb 13, 2011

I've been working on getting another OS installed on my computer for one of my classes (OS specific assembly instructions). To get this OS running, I had to start using a GPT rather than a MBR table. I backed up my Ubuntu partition (ext4) using the old-fashioned dd command. I've since been able to get everything working again after a dd restore.

The problem is that my original Ubuntu partition was only about 50GB and the dd image only takes up 40 GB. After I restored the image to the new drive (146BG), gparted is reporting 119GB used and only 26GB free. What can I do to reduce the size of my install to 40GB again?

When looking at the disk in baobab, it says the the filesystem is only 47.2 GB and that only 20.9 GB has been used. This is likely what the old partition's breakdown was. So my new question is: How can I make the filesystem capacity (47.2 GB) equal that of the partition that it is on (146 GB)?

General :: Make My Swap Size Larger?

Jun 6, 2010

I just installed Lubuntu 10.04 on old PC (CPU: 700 Mhz, RAM: 640 MB). My swap partition is only 474 MB. I was told it should be twice my RAM, if that's true then I'm really low on swap space. Can I expand my swap space? I also have Fedora 13 installed, it has a 1.3 GB swap partition, can I have Lubuntu use this partition?

Fedora :: Runlevel 3 - Larger Console Fonts Or Increase Size

Aug 1, 2010

I have fedora 13 set up on a HP6715S laptop. Runlevel 3 is a problem, because the capital letters are the size of full stops. Reading a little, I can try a grub vga setting, but I am not keen as my screen is 1200x800 and X cannot set it otherwise, so I doubt grub could. There's KMS for radeon cards, and the kernel can do what it likes. The biggest font supplied with fedora is sun12x22, which doesn't even have a euro sign. I gather I can go to a height of 32. Anyone know of larger consolefonts, or a wheeze to double the size of one of the others, e.g. lat9w-16? setfont-h32 increases height, but not zoom, so it's like a double spaced console.

General :: How To Set Apps Windows Within Limits Of Screen Size

Feb 15, 2010

I just picked up an AcerAspireOne AOA150-1777 netbook that I've loaded slackware 13 onto. I'm using fluxbox as my window manager. Screen resolutions look good, running at 1024x600, as I set in xorg.conf. My question is, some applications, (gimp/firefox are good examples) open windows that are too big for the screen. I was wondering if there was a way I can set apps to use the limits of my screen size.

Feb 6, 2010

What I mean is I'd like to watch stuff in its original size but with the rest of the screen black, the way it is in full screen view (but I don't want it zoomed). RealPlayer calls this option "theatre view". Is there a line I can put into terminal? I tried


sudo gedit /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf

and changing commenting in zoom=yes and changing it to zoom=no. Made no difference.

General :: Configure Kde 4 To Resize Windows To Half Desktop Size When Moved To Side Of Screen?

Feb 7, 2010

I have just noticed a nice feature in Windows 7 - when you drag a window to the edge of the screen (the mouse pointer must touch the edge), windows offers you to resize the window to exactly half of the screen size. This is actually very handy on the wide screen monitors.

Is it possible (and how) to configure Kde 4 to do the same thing?

Ubuntu :: Migrate To A Larger HD, Dumping Windows?

Aug 13, 2011

I currently use Xubuntu on a dual boot system, a laptop. The hard drive is to small (30 GB shared between Xubuntu and windows), so I want to clone the existing drive, but I do not want to clone windows.

I bought a 120 GB hard drive, and want to dump windows totally. If I download clonezilla and burn it to a cd, can I instruct it to only clone the Xubuntu system? I think I would run clonezilla from a cd, download everything to my USB drive, then remove the small hard drive. Then, install the bigger drive and restore everything to the newer and larger drive. Will this work??

Debian Multimedia :: How To Make Certain Windows Open Same Size Every Time

Jan 13, 2016

I have been using windowmaker for some time now. I really love this wm, but I've one major problem; how do I make certain windows open the same size each time I open that program? For instance, I have a certain size I prefer for Pcmanfm, Vlc, deadbeef, and geequie, but every time I run them, they open anywhere on the desktop at all sorts of sizes. I especially hate resizing a video window when the video is playing.

I can do this in fluxbox, but I have a different set of problems with that window manager, namely, I can't organize my dockapps the way I want, despite editing the slitlist and some won't work at all. While I love Openbox, I can't get the windows sized right each time, either.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 10.10 Doesn't Display On Vaio Laptop's Screen

Oct 23, 2010

Recently I install ubuntu 10.10 on my Sony Vaio laptop. After the CD boot I always got a black screen, after a week i figured that there's nothing wrong, it's just the screen doesnt show up on my laptop's screen. So I use an external monitor and It showed up as normal.

But I need to have it show up on my laptop's screen. I tried to use "additional driver" to activate latest Nvidia driver but after that even my external monitor doesnt work too. Latest driver doesnt work properly i guess. I did try to install older driver version manually but after I turned of gdm, install driver and reboot, my ubuntu always starts with tty1 command terminal. tried ctrl+alt+7 but it stucked at (checking battery state), startx doesnt help me return to graphical screen too.

I got help from a moderator here but the best result so far is to edit my /etc/default/grub. Change

Sudo update-grub

after the reboot I have it shows up on my laptop's screen. But it seems low-bit color,a bit grand to me(compared to external monitor, both w/o driver). Anw i checked system/preference>monitor . It showed up that my monitor:unknown. I can't choose other resolutions, refresh rate = 0.

I always know its my widescreen is the problem. I have had a lot of problems dealing wgames/application (on windows) can't work on 16:9 mode. install a stable Nvidia driver

Everything I tried in the past weeks is in here [URL] My laptop is SONY VAIO VPCCW19FX, Nvidia GeForce GT 230M, widescreen monitor

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Display This Video Mode After Grub Screen

May 29, 2011

I use natty 64 bit. I installed a HD 4870. Installed the drivers according to instruction on [URL]. I ran aticonfig --initial. Still I get "Cannot Display This video Mode" after the grub screen, during boot up. Monitor preferences applet doesn't seem to work, either - it won't detect the monitor parameters EDID thing.

When I try to open the Catalyst Control Centre I get:
p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } "There was a problem initializing Catalyst Control Center Linux edition. It could be caused by the following.
No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning properly.

Debian Multimedia :: Display Not Fitting Onto Screen

Mar 7, 2015

I am using xfce4 and in this image

The top bar only shows the bottom half. the bottom bar only shows the top half. i also can't see anything after the r in centre on the right. part of the initial picture on the left also does not display.

My thought is that the tv it has a resolution of 1920x1080 and this is causing the issue. i have this in my xorg.conf:

Code: Select allSection "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Device0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    Option         "metamodes" "nvidia-auto-select +0+0; 1920x1080_60 +0+0"

[Code] ....

The graphics card is

Code: Select all02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation C77 [GeForce 8300] (rev a2)

Changing metamodes to 19200x1200 doesn't change anything.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Web Cam Chatroulette - Displays Yellow And Blue Lines Across Its On Screen Display Box

Mar 6, 2010

I got out my old Fuji Finepix s3100 and set it to web cam mode to see if anything had changed in the world of usb video drivers. Lo and behold it worked! I can watch myself on cheese web cam booth. kewl, but I wanted more. So, just recently hearing about chatroulette on the Daily Show, I click and wahla no go . After flash comes up and asks for and receives user permission to access my hardware, I click to find a random stranger, and my camera displays yellow and blue lines across its onscreen display box. I notice that movement is noticed by the camera. If I move I notice a change in background/lines. As far as I can tell, my camera is not a fault. I mean it works for local viewing. Is this a flash or possibly a chatroulette problem?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Display A Full Screen With An Nvidia Integrated Graphics Controller

Nov 5, 2010

I have recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10. However the bottom of the screen is cut off with only a trace of it visible. I had similar problems with version 10.04 where both and top and bottom of the screen were not displayed.

I have noticed that version 10.10 does not use the proprietry driver the previous versions used.

In desparation I have tried Kubuntu but the results are still much the same.

Does anyone have any idea how I can display a full screen with an Nvidia integrated graphics controller.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: GeForce 8400 GS + 10.10 - Screen Image Extrapolating The Display Boundaries

Nov 23, 2010

I have just installed a GeForce 8400 GS card in my Ubuntu 10.10 with the Nvidia proprietary driver( version number: 260.19.21).

The Display is connected to the desktop through an HDMI cable and the resolution is 1920 x 1080 .

After some trouble(Black Screens), almost everything is ok.

The only problem is the screen that is extrapolating the Display Boundaries.

I have tried to set it through the nvidia configuration program without success.

Is there any parameter in Xorg.conf that could resolve this issue?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Setup Dual Screen Display On Computer With Nvidia Optimus?

Aug 17, 2011

having trouble setting up a dual monitor from my Dell xps laptop using an HDMI port. It dual boots onto Ubuntu 10.04. The computer has a Nvidia GeForce GT 555M with Optimus graphics card I need to make sure I have not installed the restricted drivers. So I think what is happening right now is that the graphics are shown off the integrated graphics card. This is my output from <lspci | grep VGA>


00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 0126 (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 0dcd (rev a1)

The forum recommends to use this program called Bumblebee but I have had some issues with that in the past. Is there somehow I can setup my dual display while staying on Ubuntu 10.04 and not installing Bumblebee? I have researched into setting up dual display walkthroughs before but they all concentrate on nvidia or ATI configurations.
