Ubuntu :: Get Desktop To Stretch Across Two Screens?

Jan 28, 2011

I am trying to get my desktop to stretch across two screens. (for reference, I am using Kubuntu 10.10) When I start up the system, it duplicates whatever is on the primary monitor onto the the secondary. Initially, playing with the options in the GUI I thought I had it figured. Under System Settings < Display and Monitor < Size and Orientation there is an option that lets me set the position of my secondary monitor to the "right of" the primary. However, on restarting the computer, this resets to its initial setting of "clone of" the primary.

So I did a bit of reading and found something I could put in the command line:

Code: xrandr --output DVI-I-2 --right-of DVI-I-1

Which again fixes the problem, but only for that given session. On restart we are back to the same scenario. A bit more reading tells me that putting things in etc/rc.local executes them on start up so I shouldn't have to each time I turn on my computer. Except that putting it in there didn't do anything. While I am reasonably pleased with myself having learned as much as I did in this little exploration (previously, the only command line thing I knew how to use was apt-get), I am feeling pretty frustrated at this point.

Is there somewhere else I should be putting this other than (or in addition to) etc/rc.local? Do I need to put something other than xrandr thing in there to make it execute?

Ubuntu :: Windows Will Not Stretch Across Screens In Multi Screen Mode

May 12, 2010

I have 10.4 and nVIDEA 5500 on my PC. I am running two screens, run as twin so that the desktop spans the two monitors.

I have noticed that when I try and stretch a window across the two screens, very useful in spreadsheets, the window 'pings' back to a much smaller size.

I open in, say my main monitor. I move the window to span across the two and than manually stretch the window. It will stretch to some extent but if I then go beyond a certain pint it then slams shut.

Also, if I click the MAXIMISE button on the window it only expands to full screen in one terminal.

This did NOT happen in 9.10, and does not happen in any Windows OS, so I know it has something to do with the new 10.4 build.

Ubuntu :: Dual Screens: Need Mirror Image Not Extra Desktop?

Sep 8, 2010

I'm using an Intel chipset GMA4500 and Ubuntu 10.04 Gnome. The monitor configuration tool does not seem to have an option to make the secondary screen a mirror image of the primary screen. It works fine when I connect my TV using HDMI as a second screen, but I want it to be a mirror of the primary, because some apps like Skype will only go "full screen" on the primary display.

OpenSUSE Install :: Xinerama Config - Adjust Xinerama To Place 1 Desktop On Each Of 2 Monitors And Not Stretch A Single Over Both

Jan 10, 2010

I would like to adjust Xinerama to place 1 desktop on each of my 2 monitors and not stretch a single over both. With the current set up there is a problem with window placement upon opening new widows or context dialog boxes. I realize that I could adjust placement properties and select window placement with the mouse but this is still lacking in productivity. My monitors are not next to on another so this is more of a problem than it seems.

General :: Extended Desktop Virtual Screens And A Usb2vga Adaptor

Jan 16, 2011

OS Linux Mint 10, Intel graphics, SIS usb2vga adaptor.

I have three screens. The netbook screen with the extended desktop onto a vga screen and a third screen connected to a usb2vga adaptor.

The extended desktop screens without the usb2vga adaptor works perfectly. I can maximise applications to either screen perfectly without them spreading across both screens. As soon as I connect the third screen via the usb2vga adaptor maximising an application causes it to spread across both screens yet the third usb2vga screen has it's own virtual desktop environment.

I have tried numerous versions of my xorg.conf file that I have generated to incorporate the usb2vga adaptor to make this work and regardless of what xrandr commands I send including changes to the gconf settings nothing seems to solve the issue.

It seems odd that I can create a panel and position it left, right, top or bottom of the second monitor of the extended desktop and it sticks to the screen dimensions yet I can't get any application to do the same when there is a third screen connected through the usb2vga adaptor.

I don't use Compiz, it crashes my system and I don't want separate workspaces I want the extended desktop with the two separate virtual screens to fit on the two separate screens that form part of the extended desktop.

With Xinerama deprecated what other options do I have.

Debian :: Autoremove After Upgrade To Stretch

Jan 31, 2016

I recently upgraded my Debian box from Jessie to Stretch. After this, apt informed me that I should issue "apt-get autoremove," however the package list to be effected was large and contained some important packages (xorg being just one example). Most of the packages are qt4 related, and I at first assumed qt5 equivalents had replaced them, but seeing network-manager and xorg in the list made me pause.

Debian Multimedia :: Stretch - Rhythmbox And NFS Don't Go Together

Jan 9, 2016

I've recently installed Debian Stretch and Gnome. After setting up everything I ran into an issue with Rhythmbox, which apparently only occurs if NFS mounts are present in /etc/fstab, independent on the question of whether they are actually mounted or not. I'll attach the results from running it from console with 'rhythmbox -d': [URL] .....

I guess, the last lines are the "problematic ones" but I can't make sense out of them. After the last line, a window opens telling me that rhythmbox isn't responding, whether I want to kill it.

And the /etc/fstab entrys (in case any of those options is an issue):

Code: Select all192.168.1.100:/media/daten/backup /media/sicherung_htpc nfs noauto,x-systemd.automount,rw,soft,bg,user 0 0

Debian :: Any Way To Install Ecryptfs-utils In Stretch?

Jan 10, 2016

After years with debian stable I'm testing debian...testing (stretch) in a separate partition. I'm just using the stretch repositories and nothing else, so that I won't mess up the system by pulling packages from different branches.

Unfortunately ecryptfs-utils is not (yet) available on stretch. Is there any safe way to use this package on my debian stretch, preferably the stable package from jessie?

How long it will take for this package to reach stretch from unstable?

General :: Resolution Will Never Stretch Past 1024x768

Jul 7, 2011

So I have a resolution problem. Before posting here, I've checked many MANY forums for similar issues, handpicking certain techniques and trying each. Sometimes they worked, and then my problem came back.

Distro: Fedora 14
Monitor: emachines 18.5" E181HV
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 8800GT
resolution: 1360x768

My problem is that the resolution will never stretch past 1024x768. I have the image of my desktop in the middle part of the screen, with black sections on either side. Here is a list of things that I've already done or tried:

Install Nvidia drivers
disable Nouveau via grub.conf
use xrandr to modify xorg.conf and add the resolution
different cable
different DVI converter

One day, I logged into my Fedora boot, and after a week of frustration, the issue decided to fix itself. So I continued on, using Fedora and planning on a permanent switch from Windows. I log back over to Windows to play some games and whatnot (I'm not a fan of how Wine handles some games). I then log back to Fedora, and the issue is back. The resolution is messed up again.I've since removed that partition from my drive, as I've reached my wits end with troubleshooting. My linux expert friend tells me it may be that my monitor is just not good enough, or is not sending/receiving the proper EID signature, thus will not accept the resolution, or something along those lines.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Make Games In Wine Not Stretch In Non-native Resolution?

Feb 6, 2010

I'm running WoW in Ubuntu 9.10 with wine. My screen's native resolution is 1920x1200. When I play WoW in Windows I set it to 1920x1080 in fullscreen because that aspect ratio allows me to see more of the playing field. In windows it doesn't stretch the screen so I have a black bar at the top and bottom of my screen.

When I set it to 1920x1080 under wine, it stretches my screen. Is there any way I can make it not stretch?

I tried searching forums/google but I couldn't find anything related to my question.

Debian Installation :: Upgrading One Particular Package From Jessie To Stretch

Jan 8, 2016

I have installed Package: gnumeric (1.12.18-2) in my Jessie/Mate system. It is very jittery on scrolling, and I was wondering if I should upgrade to the version (1.12.26-1) in stretch(testing), as there seem to have been a large number of bugfixes.

I have tried the following simulation command, but it gives the error message shown:

Code: Select all~# apt-get --simulate -t stretch  install gnumeric
Reading package lists... Done
E: The value 'stretch' is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources

The documentation suggests that I may need to create an apt preferences file. I do not have any of the following files mentioned by the apt-get man page:

/etc/apt/preferences/etc/apt/preferences.d/etc/apt/apt.conf

What I would like to do is upgrade just the specific package jessie/gnumeric(1.12.18-2) to stretch/gnumeric(1.12.26-1). I do not want any other packages to be inadvertently upgraded to stretch. I have seen warnings that one can easily end up with a badly mixed system and I wish to avoid that! I also do not want to disturb the standard apt-get update, which I am running daily via anacron at present.

Debian :: XFCE4 Workspace Stretch On Dual Monitor

Feb 18, 2016

I have been encounter 2 bugs on 2 sides of the coin. Seems it doesn't fix since Wheezy till now.

1. When I don't install any nonfree firmware I'm stuck at 1024x768 resoultions unable to turn to 1366x768
2. But when I install nonfree firmware my 1366x768 was solved but I encounter other new bugs

>> On Jessie: XFCE4.10 doesn't save any wallpaper everytime when reboot the pc & always reset to default.
But when remove nonfree firmware the bg save normally but I've to stuck at 1024x768 resulotion.
This also happen on Wheezy as well.
>> On Stretch: XFCE4.12 workspace become too long ugly.
But when remove nonfree firmware the workspace become normal
but I've to stuck at 1024x768 resulotion once again.

So any way with nonfree installed without this XFCE bugs or without nonfree driver install but make resolution 1366x768 work for not to stuck in 1024x768 resolutions. Overall I'm quite satisfy Stretch testing than Jessie Stable.

Debian Configuration :: Can't Install GNOME Or KDE In Stretch (dependency)

Debian Multimedia :: After Stretch Upgrade / System Can't Load X

I upgraded the distro (Strecht - Testing) and the result was almost the same mentioned by mittgreen, when I boot the system it fails to load the X, ending in the "oh no something has gone wrong" screen.Now, the only possible way to use the GUI is to start it manually by startx command. Reading the Xorg.log I saw a "No screens found" error.

Debian Multimedia :: How To Get KDEConnect Running In Stretch Using Plasma 5

Oct 27, 2015

Installed kdeconnect from Stretch repo, and KDE Connect from F-Droid on my phone, but I don't know how to get this working. No KDE Connect options anywhere in System Settings (I also search there for "connect" and don't find anything related to KDE Connect). There's no GUI anywhere, no Plasma 5 widgets, nothing. Only "kdeconnect-cli", which when I enter "kdeconnect-cli -l" (list devices) I get

Code: Select allkdeconnect-cli(26749)/kdeconnect DevicesModel::refreshDeviceList: dbus interface not valid
0 devices found

On the phone side, "No devices" found when it searches, or when I press refresh. Why is there no System Settings option even after installing the kdeconnect package?

Debian :: System Never Resumes Hibernation After Upgrade Jessie -> Stretch

Sep 1, 2015

I recently upgraded my debian system from jessie to stretch. Before then, I was mostly using hibernation instead of shutting off the laptop, to allow myself to get back faster to work the next day. Since my upgrade, though, it is impossible for me to resume from hibernation: after the normal boot sequence and the passphrase to decrypt my lvm partition, when it has loaded the information from RAM the screen just stays with a blinking "_" (underscore) in the top left corner.

I have hibernate and uswsusp packages installed. I also installed tuxonice-userui package to do some tests with the hibernate-ram and hibernate-disk commands. While using hibernate-disk (hibernate-ram didn't work, because "s2ram: unknown machine"), my system hibernates correctly, and I saw that during resume it was correctly loading everything from swap and then going back to the "underscore screen", confirming that the resume problem was happening after loading data from swap.

I tried booting using the recovery kernel in grub. For a time it worked, but today I didn't get the chance to make it work. The only solution was for me to boot my kernel by adding the "noresume" option to it, thus forcing it to restart.

Debian Installation :: Stretch / Grub2 Appears Missing After Install From USB

Aug 9, 2015

I have a laptop with 2 HDDs, 1x SSD (/dev/sda, Windows 10 Pro x64) and 1x HDD (/dev/sdb, 3 primary partitions: boot, root, swap; 1 logical partition: home).I used the Debian Stretch Alpha D1 Netinstall ISO x64 by transfering it to a USB stick with DiskImage Writer.The installation went perfectly fine. I chose GRUB to be installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb, as I want all my Linux Stuff on that second disk. The plan is to boot the second disk manually through the BIOS whenever I want to work with Debian. My Windows disk is kept unaware of anything "linuxy".

After the install was complete and I booted my /dev/sdb through the BIOS, a blinking cursor on a black screen was the result. And I don't mean a GRUB Rescue prompt.IMHO, Grub appears to not have been installed, although I chose it to be installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb at the end of the installation.

I've been reading a little, searching for a bug in the installer, but I found only a vague mentioning of such an issue: Grub missing if Debian installed on a multi-hdd system through USB stick. The solution was to get Super Grub2 Disk, and use it to boot my Debian. It worked as expected and the system booted.

Debian Installation :: No Mouse And Keyboard In Stretch Amd64 Installer

Oct 25, 2015

I have Asus Z87-PRO motherboard with i5-4670k and I'm trying to install Debian Testing with 64-bit architecture. My problem is mouse and keyboard (I guess USB in general) stop working after installer get loaded (the last thing I do is choose between text and graphical install). I found a few topics on different forums indicating that I should enable IOMMU (Intel VT-d) option in my bios.

The problem is that Intel k-series processors didn't use to have IOMMU support, so there's nothing I can do about it. I tried changing different bios options like disabling UEFI, enabling xHCI and EHCI with no luck. Passing "iommu=off" or "iommu=soft" to the boot command also doesn't work. However, I have LMDE 2 64-bit live cd (based on Debian Jessie) and it works fine, so I guess my problem may be related to some changes in 4.2 kernel.

Debian :: Installing Minimal Gnome-shell After Stretch Netinst?

Jan 27, 2016

I've just installed debian testing on my computer (netinst AKA basic shell version). Now, how do I do a minimal gnome install? Minimal means, I don't need libreoffice or any extra bloat. However, I do want nautilus, gnome-settings-daemon and networkmanager (and of course, firefox!).

Also, is audio included or not in gnome-shell?

If I just install the gnome-shell package (with --no-install-recommends package), will it pull in gdm, Xorg, etc. or do I have to install them separately? Also, need to confirm whether my sources.list is properly set or not:

Code: Select alldeb http://ftp.security.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib

Debian Installation :: Installing Stretch Stops At Detecting Network Devices

Oct 11, 2015

Installing stretch stops at detecting network devices. This is an attempt to install stretch over the top of Windows 10 on a Toshiba Radius 15 with 2 each USB2 ports and 2 each USB3 ports, and no RJ-45. Its wireless is based upon the Intel 7265. Just before the presentation of the wireless list, the system reports the need to install non-free:

iwlwifi-7265D-9
iwlwifi-7265D-10
iwlwifi-7265D-11
iwlwifi-7265D-12

and asks for media. Whether I respond yes or no, the driver selection screen comes up. [I have not been able to find those four specific files on the Internet.The network card screen comes up, I select the Intel recommended firmware iwlsifi, but the page just recreates itself and waits for a new selection. If I select either 'none' or 'not listed', the installation fails saying there is no network card.I have obtained from Intel their suggestion as of Aug 2015: iwlwifi-7265-ucode-25.30.14.0.tgz.I placed this on a USB stick in a subdirectory labeled 'firmware'. This was built from Windows 7 on a FAT32 file system.

There is also a Dynadock docking station that connects to the Toshiba via a USB3 cable. Besides video, USB,and audio, this has an Ethernet port. I have tried this connected to the laptop but it also requires a driver. I have placed that driver on the firmware directory of the USB also.

Are the four files listed above somehow inside the iwlwifi driver tgz?Is there a way to get the docking station drive to load so I can use its Ethernet port?

I have used Rufus to build the stretch USB from Windows. I do have a a Linux box I built with the same USB. I would use it but so far, I only have a command line on it and I have not figured out how to access debian.org to download the installation files nor how to put that on the stick.

Debian Configuration :: Internet For Acer Extensa 5220 Laptop On Stretch

Jul 20, 2015

I have installed debian stretch on this machine, but can't get wired ethernet running. Using Slitaz live disc, the wired connection works. Guess I am missing a package or two.

Slitaz system (2.6.37) info reports:

Code: Select alltg3:  Broadcom Tigon3 ethernet driver
ath5k : Support for 5xxx series of Atheros 802.11 wireless LAN cards

So it looks to me I need drivers for:

wired interface - Broadcom BCM5787M
wireless interface - Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x/AR542x

The debian scratch I have installed on the laptop gives me this info:

Code: Select alllspci -vvnn | grep -A 9 Network

It looks like the required modules have been loaded, e.g. for wired, tg3

dmesg contains:

My etc/network/interfaces file is:
Code: Select all# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

And ifconfig yields:

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0
          RX bytes:22264 (21.7 KiB)  TX bytes:22264 (21.7 KiB)

So no eth0. How can I fix this?
