Ubuntu :: Toggle Visually Impaired Setting [log On Screen]

Jan 11, 2010

My 3 year old daughter has shown me up and appears to have enabled the 'Visually impaired setting' for the 'Log on' screen; the problem is that I'm not sure how she did it and, naturally am unsure of how to undo what she did.She has her own account which has limited privileges, I'm assuming that whatever she did she did from the initial 'Logon' screen.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: ATI Catalyst 9.12 -- X Blank Screen / Hard Lock Keyboard Lights Don't Toggle?

Dec 19, 2009

I installed the new 9.12 cat drivers in the usual way (init 3; rpm -e the old drivers; generate new rpm; rpm -i new drivers; init 5), but instead of starting like I expected, I got a blank screen and what appeared to be a hard lock (keyboard lights don't toggle, Ctrl + Alt + Backspace and Ctrl + Alt + F1 don't do anything).

I switched back to radeonhd, but I'd like to get the proprietary drivers working if possible.

The usual listings

[nathan@ebisu ~] lsmod | grep fgl
fglrx 2323096 0
[nathan@ebisu ~] modprobe -l | grep fgl
Looks like the driver loaded OK...
[nathan@ebisu ~] dmesg | grep fgl

how do I toggle between breadcrumbs and location bar? Ctrl L just doesn't do anything, just gives focus to the already existing location bar.

Ubuntu :: Toggle 'Show Desktop'?

May 8, 2010

I got rid of my bottom panel, but I am still used to 'Show Desktop' button right in the bottom left corner. I was just thinking is it possible to Toggle 'Show Desktop' state just by moving my mouse in that corner?I was thinking of using wmctrl and compiz commands edge biding, but my problem is that wmctrl has two different commands - one for showing desktop one for hiding. But I want to toggle.

Ubuntu :: Setting Up A Touch Screen

Oct 21, 2010

I must say I've spent many nights trying to get this touch screen going on ubuntu but with no luck. Does anyone have any general step by step instructions or is there any sites I can go on. I have a Acer t230h and the furthest Ive got with it is typing something into the terminal and getting out aload of strange looking symbols and stuff. I presume that was in the right direction but i forget what I pressed... something like 'lbus' but longer I think. I have the touchscreen info plugged in with a usb lead so what ever their called in ubuntu might be a help. another thing I did find something related to the screen in the /dev/ folder by plugin it in and out a couple of times and spotting what file was missing and coming back but when I run it in terminal this is what happens - evan@ubuntu:~$ cat /dev/hidraw0 cat: /dev/hidraw0: Permission denied

Ubuntu :: Setting Up Dual Screen?

Mar 7, 2011

this is the frist time I've installed Ubuntu as my main OS, but I'm having some trouble.I cannot get my dual screen setup to work properly. I'm running a gigabyte mobo, with an core i5 and a Nvidia 8800 GTS 320mb video card (2x dvi). My monitors are a 24 inch acer (1920x1200) and a 32 inch Phillips TV (1920x1080).

The main screen, the acer, is working just fine with his max resolution via a DVI cable. My tv is connected via a DVI to HDMI converter and it does work, but only at 640x480 resolution. The screen is very small in the center of the TV. I've tried changing the resolution in the xorg.conf file but upon restarting it just turned my TV off.

Ubuntu :: Script To Toggle Window Visibility?

Apr 4, 2011

I need a script/tool/whatever to toggle visibility of a specified window. I'm using Ubuntu with GNOME and compiz. I found wmctrl which can maximize, minimize windows and so on, but it couldn't make a window "hidden". There is even a option for it, but it doesn't work (neither for me nor for this guy creating this manual: [URL]

So my question: Is there another way to toggle visibility of a window? Any tool for that or even any commands for a bash script?

Ubuntu :: Setting Up Panasonic TV As Separate X Screen?

Feb 25, 2010

using ubuntu 9.10 quick summary: need to set my tv resolution to 1840x1036 to see the whole desktop without cropping i just got a panasonic plasma tv and am trying to use it to watch movies from my computer. I hooked it up using my graphic card's dvi out. Since the TV came with a dvi to hdmi adapter I just had to buy a hdmi cable and now its set up to run under 1080p input. So I got 1920x1080 resolution for the tv. The problem is that the resolution does not fit exactly into the tv's screen. I am missing about 30 pixels top & bottom and some on the sides too. This results in me seeing my desktop on my tv, but the top panel with the applications menu etc is just out of bounds.

Under windows xp I have the same problem, but the nvidia control panel there has an option to "Adjust desktop size and position" which kind of works. Well you can resize but you cant position the picture. Resizing makes my actual resolution 1840x1036 pixels. With that resolution my left rigth top and bottom edges are all inside the TVs screen. Now i tried to do this in ubuntu using nvidia-settings and manually editing xorg.conf, but I am having no success at all. Nvidia or the x server or something is totally ignoring any modlines I include for my second screen (tv), and always shows 1920x1080 ... I have no way to scale the picture from the tv menu so I need to scale it in ubuntu. Does anyone know how to do this ?

Ubuntu :: Setting Screen Resolution 1920x1080

Jun 20, 2010

Monitor: Asus VH242H
Graphics: XGI Volari Z9s

The native resolution of my monitor is 1920x1080. I can't get Ubuntu 10.04 to display at this resolution. Current xorg.conf (relevant sections):


I was able to get the terminals to run at 1920x1080 by adding Code: video=sisfb:mode:1920x1080x32,rate:70,mem:4096 to my grub command. That's nice, but I really want Xorg running at that resolution, and it didn't. I've been working on this for hours, through dozens of gdm restarts with every variation of the above I can think of.?

Ubuntu :: Setting Up CUSTOM Screen Resolution?

Mar 18, 2011

I have ubuntu 10.10 installed on my computer in dual boot with windows 7, but i am using a 27-inches Samsung screen through an hdmi cable to connect my computer. whenever i try getting on ubuntu, i cannot see the top and bottom of the desktop (so i cant access the menu bar or anything!)(while using my spare vga cable) i tried downloading the nvidia driver & utility for my video card (gtx 460), but even using that, i could not setup my screen resolution manually. When i setup my windows, i was able to manually setup a custom resolution (i.e. 1842x1026) through the nvidia utility to be able to get the screen the fit properly.

I was wondering if there is any way i could do the same for ubuntu, perhaps through terminal.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Vnc Screen Not Repainting / Setting Somewhere That I Am Missing?

Apr 30, 2011

I have been successfully using VNC to control a couple of Linux boxes from my Windows PC for some time ... using TightVNCViewer on Windows and the default vnc server at Linux. All machines on my local network, no internet access required.

However, I just upgraded both linux boxes to Ubuntu 11.04 (released version) and VNC is almost but not quite working...

Both installations are more-or-less straight out of the box default installs - I haven't had a chance to change much yet!

I have enabled remote control of the desktop in Linux, and if I start TightVNCViewer it does connect and I can see something. However, the desktop does not repaint when an item on the desktop goes away, which makes it pretty much unusable.

I upgraded TightVNCViewer to the latest version in case that was the issue, but no change.

Is there a setting somewhere that I am missing? Do I need to use a different Viewer package on Windows?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Getting Keyboard To Toggle Between KVM Switch Inputs?

Feb 14, 2010

I'm using an IOGEAR KVM Switch to switch between my newly built PC and Xbox 360. I've been using it for a while on my 360 with no problems, but to switch inputs you have to use a hotkey on a keyboard that is connected to the KVM switch (there is no button on the KVM switch to toggle between inputs). My KVM switch is compatible with Linux, but each time I plug in my Logitech Wired Wave keyboard into my KVM switch and use the hotkey it fails to switch the input. The hotkey is the Scroll Lock key on the keyboard, and the Logitech Wired Wave keyboard doesn't have a key dedicated to that function.

So I use the key combo for Scroll Lock, which is Fn + Pause/Break. I haven't mapped out all the keys on this keyboard yet, but I figured it should already be mapped out, since all the other basic keyboard keys are working. I managed to switch the toggle key from tapping the Scroll Lock key (combo) twice to tapping the Control key twice, after finally figuring out the manual's long and convoluted key combinations to change the input toggle key setting. If anyone else encounters this problem I would direct you to the Page 11 of the product manual, which is available at the product page linked to above.

Ubuntu :: Serial Port Read, Write After DTR Toggle In C++?

Mar 31, 2011

I need to read and write to a serial device. When I connect via gtkterm, I need to toggle DTR before I can communicate with the device . My problem is that I cannot emulate this in C++.

I want to write some code that can setup a comport, toggle the DTR, then read and write strings to the port. However all my attempts have been fruitless. My serial settings are B9600, No parity, no hardware control, 8 bt characters and 1 stop bit:

#include <iostream>
#include <SerialStream.h>
#include <sys/ioctl.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
using namespace LibSerial;

General :: GNU/screen Not Setting $STY

Jan 25, 2011

I'm trying to script the spawning of GNU/screen windows by using commands of the form screen <CMD>.

For some reason when I start GNU/screen (by hand), the shell that it starts in window 0 (/bin/bash) does not contain a $STY environment variable. Without this commands like screen vim start a nested screen session, not another window as I want.

My environment is somewhat unusual. Here's how I end up in it:

ssh robm@somehost
sudo su sharedaccount
script /dev/null

The script /dev/null step exists because the TTY device allocated for the robm user cannot be accessed by the sharedaccount user. The script command allocates a new TTY that is owned by the user that invoked it, solving that problem.

If I skip the sudo and script steps, GNU/screen sets $STY just fine. In other words this works just fine:

ssh robm@somehost

Presumably something about sudo and script interferes with screen

Ubuntu :: Nvidia Setting Resolution Higher Than Screen?

Dec 6, 2010

I have what I think is a pretty eay question. I'm trying to set the screen resolution of my new 10.10 installation to 1920x1080. The monitor only supports up to 1024x768, but i would like more area. I've done this before but I forgot how i did it. In the end the screen spilled off to the sides and when I ran my cursor over to that section it would disply it. I have a feeling that i need to edit my xorg.conf file, but my nvidia drive has some new mode types and i figured I'd ask before making random changes.

below is my xorg.conf file.

UTC 2010

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Layout0"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
Option "Xinerama" "0"

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Setting The Screen Resolution To 720p?

May 3, 2011

I'm trying to change the output resolution of a HTPC that's connected to a 720p plasma from (an auto set) 1024x768 to 1280x720 so that the output is the correct 16:9 ratio for the plasma.The HTPC is running Ubuntu 11.04 with a GeForce 7600GT and is connected via VGA cable to the plasma. The plasma automatically detects the PC input as XGA.

The worst effect of this is 16:9 media (video clips etc) looks really stretched out with the letterbox bars on the top and bottom and icons in general don't look square.Nvidia driver has been activated via Additional Drivers but the message reads;


The driver is active but not in use"

Any ideas what that means? Should I be looking for a way to disable whatever the Ubuntu driver is so the proprietry one is in use?Under nVidia Xserver settings I don't have an option for a 1280x720 resolution, the next closest resolution for 16:9 is 1360x768 but then portions of the output are no longer visible on the plasma.Could it be as simple as using the DVI output (not the VGA) from the graphics card to the plasma to get a correct reading of the input. Still, I wouldn't have a setting for 1280x720

Ubuntu :: 11.04 - Setting Physical Screen Controls On 2 Monitors

Jun 20, 2011

I use 2 screens. The one that is giving me problems is 5:4 1280*1024, 60Hz monitor. These settings have been automatically detected and do match the manual's screen settings. The mouse disappears off the top of the screen and yet when a window is expanded to full screen it stops at the physical edge of the screen. The mouse stops at the bottom and left side of the screen (the other screen is on its right)

Messages that a new email has arrived are mostly hidden above the edge of the screen. I have tried the physical screen controls but they do not allow me to change the size of the screen, as I am running the monitor in digital mode. I am using the nouveau drivers. What can I do to bring the boundary down to the physical edge of the top of the flat screen?

And before I do that reinstall is there anyway to backup the 300MB+ update that I just downloaded because I have appalling internet?

Programming :: Shell Script That Serves As A Toggle?

Jun 25, 2010

I often have a need for an icon on my panel or any place that toggles between two states. Example: click the button once and it turns on the Internet (1), click the button again and it turns off the Internet(2), click the button again and it turns the Internet on again (1).The only way I know is to have a script create and delete a file. If it finds no file, it runs operation 1 and creates a file. If it finds the file, it runs operation 2 and deletes the file.
