Ubuntu :: Display Wrapped Bottom Part Seem To Be Stuck
Feb 14, 2011
I just added a nice little HDTV as a second display on my laptop, it worked fine but I found that the text was a bit hard to read so I decided to change it, got another one yesterday, just plugged it in and everything was perfect. Today I came back from work, plugged the laptop in the monitor, booted the machine, and got a wrapped display, the bottom part (about 1/4 of teh display) seem to be stuck with the content that was visible when I opened my session, and the top part is shifted up, making it totally useless.I took a picture of the display, you can see it here [URL]... I will try to see what happen if I put back the other display, but I really want to get working with the new one.
Every time I start up Docky, it blacks out the bottom part of the screen, and gives me a notice that says, "Docky requires compositing to work properly. enable compositing and restart Docky." How would I do this?
I just recently installed Lenny 5.04 on my computer and when it comes to the desktop the top and bottom bars seem to be set for a lower resolution. They only go about a third of the way across the screen and if set to be at the bottom the bottom bar is only a third of the way down the screen. The logon window fits this format but most other things go full screen (games don't though).
What is it I need to change and as an aside how do I change the screen resolution if I want everything bigger (so I can read it with my old eyes)
I downloaded some software yesterday from the ubuntu rep. This morning my screen has the bottom part of in black there are the KDE docky ,firefox ,terminal & rhythmbox icons ,so is the taskbar..but the wallpaper is cut up ,4cm off. I have noticed that the splash screens res has changed too. It's sharper (smaller). The browser as a consequence is also half lit & having noscript in the bottom without it being visible is a problem. Why has this happened & how can I fix it. The last working config, well that's somewhere else.
Whenever I move my cursor to the bottom right corner of my screen it sticks there for a moment, but then lets me move it again. No issues as long as I don't go in the corner.The effect seems to affect an area 4cm long and 2cm tall regardless of what is showing on the screen. Changing to proprietary drivers has no effect.
System: Ubuntu 11.04 - Gnome Shell ATI HD-5770 GPU
I just installed openSUSE dual-boot with windows. Wireless works fine on windows. Only ethernet works on openSUSE. At first, it couldn't even find my wireless network. With my friend's help we experimented and tried everything to find the driver for my broadcam4312 driver.
Later, my friend some update from the official openSUSE peeps... Then, the wireless could my network. I entered in my password and then hoped for the best but then it got stuck on the Obtaining IP Adress part. I know I got the rite password.
I built a new system with an Intel i5 and ASUS P8H-67-M LX motherboard that uses the Sandy Bridge chip set for video. It is a recent version without the original bugs. I use a 24" monitor, VisionQuest(Plain Tree Systems) and it supports 1920 * 1200. In System Settings > Monitor Preferences I confirm the resolution as 1920 * 1200. The Monitor is detected properly.
Drop down windows, such as my Firefox bookmarks drop below the bottom of the screen, without any scroll bars. I can drag the mouse pointer below the bottom edge of the screen. It disappears. In contrast, on my older system with Ubuntu 10.04 the mouse pointer will never totally disappear. The top tip remains.
It is like Ubuntu, when rendering the display, thinks I have something like a 1920 * 1280 screen, and everything in that bottom 80 vertical just falls off. Seems like a bug, and maybe a simple one to fix.
I am running 10.04 Lucid on a Toshiba Satellite A105. The onboard video is an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The issue is that when I connect it to my Panasonic widescreen TV (laptop is widescreen as well) the display is shrunk and has a lot of unused space on the sides/top/bottom. So like, if I wanna watch something from Hulu, I plug in the S-Video, and I can watch on the TV, but it's not using all the screen available... I have not found a way to resize the output so it fills the screen.
I've just installed 10.10 and the screen is shifted down (meaning, there is a black bar at the top of the Acer AL1916W monitor and the bottom menu bar is hidden - the accessible). The Acer controls seem to have no effect on this.
I might get harassed for making this windows/linux comparison, but i'm seriously wondering why i cant find any application that can display a quick little notification on the bottom right hand corner of my screen whenever there's some intrusion attempt.
For example, sometimes I can see that in my /etc/logs/secure (or something like that) there's someone who's trying to attempt to connect to me using random usernames/passwords from different servers. The only time I know this has happened is when i actually open the file with gedit. Is there anything like (norton for windows) that can display little notifications (with or without eye candy)??
I am using Ubuntu 10.10. I am facing a problem with display resolution. My monitor is a 14" Samtron (56v) and with Ubuntu i am stuck with 800x600 resolution. I tried everything from 'xrandr' to 'sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg' so that i can have 1024x768 resolution. But it seems that nothing is working out.
Recently when I rebooted the display resolution went to 800x600, where as before it was 1024x768. For some reason 1024x768 is no longer listed in (GNOME) System->Preferences->Moniters. Even after reinstalling Debian from scratch it's not there anymore. What can I do to fix this? System->Preferences->Moniters says Moniter: Unknown and stays that way even if I click Detect moniters.
# xrandr xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 800 x 600, maximum 800 x 600 default connected 800x600+0+0 0mm x 0mm
I just installed debian (5.04) and my display won't go higher than 800x600. I'm familiar with openSuSe; where to check if video card & driver was detected corectly but am lost in debian. My video card is nvidia and it could do 1280x1024 on windows NT5. I think I picked through all the menus looking for this info but couldn't find anything.
I just used dd to clone a linux partition to a new hard drive, it had 800mb left on the old hard drive, after dd, new hard drive lists 1.29/1.3 terabytes full. Is this what happens by default in dd? How can I fix this?
So about an hour ago I put my computer on standby. For whatever reason I couldn't bring it back so I restarted it. It works fine except now Ubuntu has pushed my display down. This means that the bottom of my tool-bar on the bottom of the screen is cut off, and there's a black bar on the top. I'm using a T.V. screen so there is no way I can manually adjust it. I also plugged my desktop back into an old monitor and it was off-center downward too.
I'm trying to figure out how to access the local part and the domain part of an email address in postfix's main.cf. For example, email@example.com has myname as the local part and mydomain.net as the domain part.I get the whole email address with %s. I want to speed up the lookups by writing better database queries.I've had no luck finding this in the otherwise well documented postfix.
we have access to one domain name , 1 internet ip address and may servers hosting different part of site. I want them all to be accessed via same web site . some of the server in our network are embedded devices.they have their specific utility being hosted on that machine. So the severs are bound to be distributed . I just wanted to know how can I access them via single ip, domain name.
I considered making my system run the following if an incorrect password is entered 10 times in a row or a specific dead-password is entered.Code:shred /home/.ecryptfs/$USER/.ecryptfs/wrapped-passphrase.Because ext4 doesn't journal the contents of the file, only the metadata, the file would be shredded and it would be impossible to recover the encrypted home folder even with the password.Is there a simple way I could make GDM check this or would I have to patch and recompile GDM for something like this to work?
When I was changing my password with the "passwd" command in Debian Lenny, after the confirmation, I received the following message: Bad: new password is just a wrapped version of the old one
I know the passwords are not saved in clear text, but hashes. Even further, when a single char changes in the string (the password in this case) the hash is completely different. So, how does linux detect a wrapped version of an old password?
I'm having a problem with sed syntax. So far I can sed the HiResBoundingBox to capture the images I want and output to pdf. But now ever so often I get an illustrator file that has hexadecimal values at the start and end of the file. Imagemagick powers through this and still creates the rastorized previews I want but the gs dies using the epstopdf script to output the vector files. If I hand remove the hex on both ends of the file, both functions work fine and the file can still be managed in illustrator but if I resave it the hex comes back. It only happens on a few files plus it seems to serve no purpose as the files work perfectly without it. I cannot get the sed statement to work. I've tried a blue million variations with no luck. Copied some that I found, same result.
Start of bad eps file: ADOÆ ^@^@^@5O ^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@^@UO ^@im^K^@yy^@^@%!PS-Adobe-3.1 EPSF-3.0^M
The way I need it to look: %!PS-Adobe-3.1 EPSF-3.0^M End of file the same: %AI9_PrivateDataEnd^M @ @ just needs to be: %AI9_PrivateDataEnd^M Tried sed -n '/%/,$p' < = blank file sed -i 's/%/,$!d/g' = same sed 's/%/,$!d/g' = same sed 's/%/,$!d' = same
I can't seem to find any proper reference to this.
If you want to use another shell, substitute that shell for /bin/bash (e.g., /bin/sh for the shell portability purists out there). It is easy to modify what is returned as well. Don't like the tuple? Then just change it to return or even print stdout if you like.
I have an HP Compaq nx6235 Notebook, which was happily running Windows Vista Home Premium, until I finally got around to loading Linux openSUSE 11.1 from a DVD issued with a magazine last year. I now have a problem, because my Windows Vista has been wrapped up in the Linux partitioning system. I know it is located at dev/sda1 and that it is an HPFS/NTFS filetype, create a dual boot drive on my notebook, so that I can happily play with both systems. I am newbie, so the instructions should be as clear and simple as possible.
Hi I am new to ubuntu and am having major problems setting my displays up. my setup is a hd TV to the Left of my pc monitor, i have managed to configure catalyst to let me have a main display with the second display being an extension of the first, the problem is i cannot seem to swap my primary display, at the minute my HDTV has all the taskbars and everything on it while my pc monitor is just a blank background, i would like it so i could start a film playing for my children, then drag it across to the HDTV while i can still use my pc in the background.
I am using GeForce 7600 GSNot using the Nvidia X driver message you know... I searched all over, and seen this problem on many searches but no resolve issues.I want to be able to connect my tv, I use to be able to when I first installed Ubuntu and now IdK.
I have seen several screen shots of Linux and Ubuntu with the bar on the bottom like Mac OS-X. I would like to have this, but still be able to customize the rest of the theme. Is there somewhere you can download this, or what?
