Ubuntu :: Screen Goes Dark On Cube Rotate?

Dec 22, 2010

Just installed 11.04 (Natty). Graphics card is Radeon 9200When I enable Cube in the compizconfig settings manager and rotate the cube, the cube goes almost black. This happens with both drag and keyboard rotate. The background is fine. Everything is defaults and no other effects are enabled.Also, the entire screen goes dark when "opacity when not rotating" is set to anything but 100%.This worked fine with with my previous version 8.04, though I think it used a proprietary driver.Questions:Should I be using a proprietary driver this card? Apparently you have to install a long list of packages first: XFree86-Mesa-libGL libstdc++ libgcc XFree86-libs fontconfig expat freetype zlib

Ubuntu :: Compiz Cube Rotate Up And Down?

Apr 16, 2010

I've recently enabled the fun stuff with compiz but I've run into a sort of problem... I want 9 desktops in a 3x3 grid (yeah, weird I know) but if I'm using the cube I can only rotate left and right... which is pretty weak sauce. Is there any way to (preferred) have desktops on the top and bottom of the cube and be able to bind a key combo to rotate up and down (ctrl-alt-up/down)? I *could* put 9 desktops in a row, but I really don't like that solution - it takes too many flips to make it from one desktop to another.

Compiz is all full of beautiful (especially burning the windows on close)

Ubuntu :: Can't Rotate Compiz Cube

Feb 23, 2011

I use the hotkey ctrl+alt+left click in Blender to zoom object... So I didn't want Compiz to use the same key to move around the cube. I changed a setting in window move, and either the old or the new key works.
New is alt+1 but it does nothing, same with ctrl+alt+left click. Also, I want the move around hotkey to be something like super+m or ctrl+m etc.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Rotate Cube With Mouse Wheel Since 9.10 Upgrade

Jan 7, 2010

Everything worked fine with Jaunty 9.04, but I haven't had any luck getting the "cube" to rotate using the mouse wheel since I upgraded to Karmic 9.10. The other ways to rotate the cube still work with karmic. Note that I upgraded from jaunty to karmic...not a clean install. Viewport switcher and rotate cube are both enabled.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Rotate Cube Option - 360 Degrees

Feb 12, 2010

I used OpenSUSE today and in one of the options for Rotate Cube (in compiz) was something that let me adjust to what angle I could allow the cube to go up and down. If I set it to 360 degrees, I was able to rotate the cube in any which direction I pleased. Can I do this on Ubuntu?

Ubuntu :: Rotate Cube With Mouse Scroll (Karmic)

Mar 17, 2010

I just switched from Jaunty to Karmic, and in the process of setting up desktop effects, I'm having a hard time with configuring the rotate cube compiz effect. Before, I was able to scroll on the desktop (ie, not over a window/application) to spin the cube to the next face. Now, it seems that I either have to use keyboard shortcuts or lose the ability to scroll in applications.

I've tried enabling the mouse scrolling to button 4/button 5 a la this post, but this doesn't fix the problem. This is one of the few desktop effects that really made a difference in terms of convenience, so I'd really like to be able to fix this setting.

Ubuntu :: Compiz - Visual Echo On Cube Rotate

May 7, 2010

Here's a strange compiz effect - odd visual echo when you rotate the cube. I kept my /home partition from the Lucid beta testing and compiz seems to have problems with it - looks like I will have to do a complete format and reinstall to solve this. I already purged and reinstalled compiz and anything I could find associated with it. Anyone else suffering from a buggy compiz? The strange thing is - this only occurs 1 out of 10 boots???

Ubuntu :: (Compiz) Middle Click On Firefox Doesn't Rotate The Cube?

Oct 13, 2010

I was just wondering about something. I have linked the middle click to initiate the cube rotation and it works perfectly except when I have the cursor on firefox. Then it just acts like I middleclicked in firefox itself. Personally I like this behaviour but was wondering why it is JUST firefox that has it. Would be great if I could achieve the same in Blender

Fedora :: Rotate The Pen When Rotate The Screen?

Sep 7, 2009

how can I rotate the pen when I rotate the screen, and I would like to share this knowledge to other people who may have the same problem I had.

I have a tablet fujitsu-siemens t5010 with installed the wacum packages by default, and the pen was working, but couldn't rotate with xsetwacom command.

In Fedora 10, most guides refer to the wacom device as "stylus" which doesn't work on Fedora 11. I run command " $ xinput list " and I found the line

"PnP Device (FUJ02e5) eraser"id=3[XExtensionKeyboard]

and some lines before there is:

"PnP Device (FUJ02e5)"id=2[XExtensionKeyboard]
^^^^^^ this is the name of the device xsetwacom command needs! ^^^^^^^

I wrote first the line with the eraser cause I suppose that even someone has different wacom model, the eraser will be easy to find by grep command ( $ xinput list | grep -i eraser ), and common in most configures.

now , the edited script I use becomes like this:

if [ $1 == 'normal' ]
xrandr -o normal
xsetwacom set "PnP Device (FUJ02e5)" rotate 0


It would be awesome if it chat could happened automatically , simply by rotating the screen, like it happens on Vista. I'll try to find out any solution and update this post if I make it !

Ubuntu :: Super Dark Laptop Screen / Couldn't Read Anything On Screen

Jul 18, 2010

I've had Windows XP installed on a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop with 1 gig of ram and 70 gig hard disk. Today I decided to install Ubuntu 10.04 desktop edition to ext3 partitions I made on the laptop's hard disk. The Ubuntu installation went fine, and Ubuntu was up and runnning. Then for fun, I checked the available WiFi networks in this apartment building. Six were secure but one WiFi was open, so I clicked it out of curiosity. Within seconds, my laptop's 15-inch screen went super-dark, nearly jet black.I couldn't read anything on the screen. Pictures and words were still on the screen, but just way too dark to read or to see with any clarity at all. I don't have a WiFi card in the laptop.Instead I use Verizon's usb727 air card on Verizon EVDO Mobile Broadband (3G)

I don't know if the free Wifi network hosed me in some way with a nasty trick (I don't have a WiFi card in the laptop--just the usb727 dongle which is an EVDO aircard), or if it was just coincidental that the screen went super dark seconds after clicking the open Wifi network in Ubuntu's network manager applet.When I reboot, I don't see anything anymore, not the POST, not Windows XP booting up, or Ubuntu booting up. The only way I see anything now is to connect the laptop to an external monitor using the laptop's blue video connector. And even then, I still can't see the boot-up POST process, or the BIOS screen.I can only see Ubuntu or Windows XP after they've finished loading, and only on an external monitor. Did the new installation of Ubuntu hose my Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop's screen, or was it the Wifi network, or did the screen just coincidentally go bad minutes after I installed Ubuntu and seconds after I clicked the open Wifi connection?

I'm using the shiki colors theme from the repos right now. "Shiki-Noble" to be specific. When typing something into Firefox's URL bar the internet addresses have got a dark font color and are hard to read on the dark background. Here's a screenshot: FF.jpg

I've had similar issues with other themes and Firefox's URL bar before.

Ubuntu :: Screen Fades To Dark?

Oct 8, 2010

and am coming from XP/Vista, loving it so far. But there is one problem I am having. After about 10-15 min of me not typing or moving the mouse, the screen dims and then goes to a screen where it asks for my password. This is getting very annoying while I am watching videos. How do I get it to stop doing this all together, I want to be able to leave my brother/friends on my computer and not have to come in every 10 min to type in my password

Ubuntu :: Lucid Screen 'blue' And Dark?

May 9, 2010

Just upgraded to 10.04. Screen is now unusable. It's like looking at it through a blue filter. It seems to be averaging the brightness. if there is a large dark area of screen real estate the paler sections getbrighter.The very bizarre thing is, if I switch user, whilst the theme is different, the brightness problem is gone...

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen Goes Dark After Reboot

Jun 23, 2011

I'm trying to install ubuntu alongside Windows 7 on a HP Pavilion DV3. When I reboot I'm given the option to either boot into windows or ubuntu (this is after running the wubi program from the ubuntu website); when I select ubuntu it says that the installation will continue but the screen then goes very dark like the brightness has been turned right down. In the center of the screen I can faintly see the word ubuntu. I've tried using the hot-keys on the laptop to turn the brightness up but this doesn't work. I've also tried installing from CD but his doesn't work either and I get the same problem. This is my first time installing ubuntu so I'm not familiar with how the installation process works. Also if any other details are needed I'll be happy to give them.

Ubuntu :: Screen Orientation Switched / But How To Rotate The Arrow Keys

So, I have my trusty ol' Aspire One ZG5 running with Natty. I like changing the screen orientation (sideways) to read comic books and books. I've learned how by this page: URL...So, I have no trouble changing my screen orientation with a quick key-combo, but I still need help,I'm trying to figure out how to change the "orientation" of the arrow keys along with the screen.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 - Screen Goes Blank Dark With Flashing Cursor At Top

Aug 7, 2010

I have a desktop with AMD Sempron 3000+, 1.2GB RAM, VIA S3G Unichrome Pro IGP, VIA SATA RAID controller based disks, PS/2 mouse and keyboard running Windows XP. Wanted to move to years ago favourite (linux based systems), I downloaded Ubuntu 10.04 for i386 and am trying to install both using CD as well as USB. After the Ubuntu start-up menu for installation, I select install Ubuntu option, turn off 'quiet' so that I can see what happens. The screen goes blank dark with a flashing cursor at the top.

In the kernel messages, the see that it has detected the processor, set the clock, assigned the PS/2 keyboard to input3 and then says:
[1.911624] isapnp: no plug and play device found
After this, the system hangs. Keyboard doesn't work.

Ubuntu :: Booting Into Live Environment Screen Is Extremely Dark?

Apr 18, 2011

I have a Gateway NV59C09u laptop, I tried running both maverick and the latest beta of natty as live usb's to no avail. It boots fine, but at the first screen the light is so dark that I can't really read anything nor see the mouse pointer, I can just barely make out a window-looking thing. Trying to increase the brightness using my F-keys doesn't do anything.

It's gotta be some kind of graphics related issue, because booting the alternate iso works fine. If I could figure out a way to boot the ubuntu-desktop live image via a different video driver that would probably work, but I'm not sure how to do that (ctrl+alt+f1 does nothing).

Fedora Installation :: Installing - Live Cd Goes To Dark Screen

Feb 24, 2009

I'm kind of new to linux, but even I shouldn't have this much trouble, because I've been reading faqs like crazy and tutorials, but I just don't understand what's going on. I'm installing Linux Mint on my old machine now and it's installing good, but I try to install Fedora 10 and I've been having problems. It works fine in VMware, but when I try to load it from a live CD to install into the drive, on the initizialize process it say's "failed ata something something", then it goes to a bar and then it goes to a black screen and it hangs there. I did 5 md5check sums on the same iso, I'm not sure what's going on?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Upgrade - Screen Goes Dark / Monitor Light Flashing?

May 4, 2011

Despite being warned from a friend of mine who works for Intel that the new version of Ubuntu 11.04 sucked? I upgraded from 10.10 which worked perfectly fine and did everything that I wanted it to except work with my COBY MP3 player which is what I hoped 11.04 would do. It all worked great until I rebooted. I previously had the main screen on the left where all of the menus are and the right screen was the 2nd monitor.

Once it rebooted it let me login and loaded the desktop but the main screen is now on the right with that stupid application bar going up the side, all of my folders, etc. are all there but NOTHING is clickable, even the icons up in the right corner where you logout, etc. will not do anything other than highlight that you have clicked on them, the hard drive light flickers for a few moments then nothing.

Also the left hand screen is completely blank unless I move the mouse cursor through it. If I just leave the computer sitting there eventually the screens go dark and the monitor lights start flashing like it is supposed to but if I wiggle the mouse the screens come back on and the mouse is there but there is no login prompt to let me log back in. Pardon my French but this OS is a piece of <bleep> and sucks just like I was told.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Stuck In Upper Left Corner -screen Dark

May 6, 2010

I recently installed Kubuntu 10.04 on a Toshiba Satellite 5205 laptop (which is prone to overheating, if it helps - it was on a platform in the back for airflow, though), which worked great for about 4 days.

Recently, I picked it up (looking for a USB port) and rotated it around a little bit. However, after this, the screen was darkened (not fully), and I could move the mouse for about half a second, after which it jumps back to the upper left corner of the screen. Rebooting doesn't help.

Software :: Installed Fedora 13 X86_64 And Unable To Hibernate - Screen Just Goes Dark

Jun 11, 2010

I've installed Fedora 13 x86_64 and am not able to hibernate (though suspend works fine). This is the case either with or without the proprietary Nvidia drivers from rpmfusion. When I click System -> Shut Down -> Hibernate, the screen just goes dark. Moving the mouse activates the display and the password confirmation box appears. Judging by the disk activity light, nothing is written to disk. Swap space is configured correctly.

Looking at the last few lines of /var/log/pm-suspend.log I see this:

It looks like grub (or the absence of grub.conf) is interfering. Problem is, I'm not even using Fedora's grub to boot the system. I'm dual booting with Ubuntu 8.04 and am using that grub. The section from that grub's menu.lst is:

But of course Ubuntu 8.04 is pre grub2 so how do I satisfy Fedora's grub.config without messing this up?

OpenSUSE :: Desktop Cube Switch With Mouse Cursor On Screen Edge?

Mar 29, 2011

In KDE I'm using KWin as windows manager and somewhere in the configuration I defined that KDE should rotate the desktop cube to the left or the right each time I move my mouse pointer to the far left or right of the screen.If I keep it there for about a second it rotates the desktop cube to the next desktop.I once activated this but find this very frustrating when I'm trying to reach buttons on the same side. So I want to disable this feature but I can't find it anywhere. I can't remember where that option was that activated this feature.

Fedora :: Unable To Boot - Emblem In The Centre Of Screen Appears And Starts To Turn From White To Dark Blue

In order to make the machine boot i hit escape and a message says leaving interactive startup mode. At this point the machine continues to start up.

When i do manage to get it to boot i get the following message repeated many times:

I should also add... The laptop will not close down, once i click switch off the screen turns blue and displays the fedora emblem in the centre. At the top right text says "Shutting Down" but at this point the system hangs.

Ubuntu :: Rotate One Of Two Monitors?

Feb 11, 2011

I have one Dell Ultrasharp U3011 (30", 2560x1600) and one Dell Ultrasharp 2007FP (20", 1600x1200)

When the 2007FP is in landscape mode it matches nearly perfectly in height both pixel and physically wise to the U3011.

See my example picture from my Win 7 dual boot below:

Two Monitors? Ridiculous... by mattlach, on Flickr

The only way I was able to get this to work in Ubuntu was to run two separate X desktops and rotate the 2007FP manually in xorg.conf, and then join them by enabling Xinerama.

Two problems with this solution.

1.) Xinerama is deprecated in favor of Xrandr which I have not been able to make do this.

2.) When using Xinerama Compiz/XGL is disabled, making the desktop feel awfully flat.

Is there any way to avoid this? Is there any way to rotate just one of your displays and maintain Compiz/XGL functionality?

This is on the top computer in my signature.
