It is about vncserver. While I use Vncviewer connect to Desktop :0. The Kile picture is the same as that I am on the local machine. But, when I connect to the desktop created by vncserver,say Desktop :1. The Kile picture is pretty bad. I attached two pictures. One is for Desktop :0 and another is Desktop :1. I wonder how to make configurations to vncserver in order to make Kile look better.
I'm using Logitech WebCam on fedora 11 and running webcam server to capture the images on the browser.. it works fine but the image quality is poor...could anyone suggest me how to change the image quality by passing parameters via command line??I tested Video quality on cheese as well, which is poor too..I searched a lot in google for a solution but no use... i got some patch but couldn't install that since the gspca driver on my fedora 11 is in-built..

i have to upload a signature image(in jpeg format) to fill a recruitment form which says file-size must be of between 10-20 kb......i have scanned image which is of 9.5 kb.....tried to edit in shotwell photo manager....tried some random things in Adjust and crop menu but my little changes didn't work, it always shortened the file size......as i don't know anything about Image editing can someone tell me how can i increase the file size (>=10kb) i also tried gnome-screenshot to take the screenshot of the image, but it also saved the new image smaller than 10kb....
does anyone know of any FOSS program I can use to convert HD X.264 MKV video files to AVI or WMV without loss of quality. I wish to stream these videos from my linux box (yes u can do that via ushare)to my xbox 360 but unfortunaly it wont play MKV files.
I have a lot of old video footage around that, I am ashamed to say, I encoded with heavily proprietary codecs like DivX and such during the dark ages (aka. the Windows Times).
Now, I would like to redeem myself from the mistakes of my past by re-encoding everything into open formats. Since those videos are often not of the best quality (poor camera, poor codecs, poor knowledge), I do not want to loose more quality in the process.
So, to avoid any more mistakes in the future, I would be glad if someone could answer me some of the following questions: 1. Is it even possible to re-encode those movies into something like x264/vp8/theora without loosing any more quality? 2. What tools should I use for that? Command line is actually preferred. 3. What would be the most desirable format to have? I'm thinking about x264 in Martroska with ogg Auto. Is there anything better suited?
When I watch movies on Ubuntu I noticed that quality of reproduction is not good as in Windows. All movies seems to have some sort of contrast problem which I don't know how to fix. This problem is not present in Windows (XP/7) and stand-alone DVD players play them also correctly.
Here are images (AVI, DivX format)

Also here is MKV format which is noticeably even sharper in Windows:

Note: I didn't wanted to include them in post since they are quite big and I didn't want to do JPG compress since they might lose quality. Try not to resize them.
On Ubuntu I installed some 'extra' codecs (might be proprietary) via Software center. I use standard movie player that comes with 10.10, but for MKV I use VLC since mkv don't run in standard movie player. On Windows I use k-lite codec pack and GOM player. My guess is that Windows solve those sharpness and contrast issues by using some playback filters (possibly contained in k-lite codec pack) that are unavailable in Ubuntu. I installed proprietary video driver for ATI RADEON 2600.
I have a 500MB video that is 720x400. I want to half the size of the video while retaining the same relative quality.My main goal is to half the filesize of the video, but to do that and keep the same relative quality I will have to also make the resolution smaller.I can't seem to find a way to do this.I would preferer to use ffmpeg, but any solution would be good at this point. I would really like to be able to do this from the command line, but if there is a gui program that will also give me the command line it uses, that's great too.Does any one know of a way to half the file size of a video while maintaining the same relative quality?
I recently have bought a digital reflex. After a few shootings and so on it's now come the time to use my Ubuntu at best to work with my camera. Can you recommend to me some software (if it's an all in 1 product the better)
What I'm really interested in is handling RAW format (.cp2 if I'm correct?), tagging renaming and organizing my pictures (both with and without filters and so on applied on them). Also it would be great if it would allow me to bulk export images at the desired size and quality. (I've tried digiKam but it doesn't import pictures from my camera)
Ubuntu 10.04, xsane 0.996, Brother MFC 240c scanner.I just finished writing a long dissertation on my problem with this scanning environment (which I will spare you). In a nutshell the resulting image, when printed, is smaller than the original document. In writing my dissertation for this post I determined that the cause of the issue is that xsane believes I am scanning an 8.5 x 14 inch document when I am in fact scanning an 8.5 x 11 letter. So the question is... can I change the size to 8.5 x 11? and if so, how? I have not found anything in the xsane Preferences.
One of my favorite features of fire fox is the page zoom ( ctrl + / ctrl - ) that zooms the entire page retaining the layout how ever when I installed 10.04 on my main desktop firefox started scaling the images very poorly ( ie no smoothing, leaving the image looking extremely pixelated ).All threads I've found on the subject seems to related to ubuntu 8, and suggest that a bug fix was underway... hopefully this means there is an easy fix - but what?info;Same computer it worked fine on ubuntu 9.xx and windows 7 - when doing desktop zoom (meta + mouse scroll ) the images also scales as expected.
When I downloaded the ISO file thru DAP it showed up as 699.44MB but when I completed the download onto my HDD (XP SP3 & NTFS) it shows up as 716,230KB (see below) with a result when I try to burn on to a CD. I get an error that the file is too large. Whats happening, is there a solution to this?
I have 4 primary partitions on my hard drive. One of these partitions has been divided into 3 logical partitions with some free space left over. The order is this: "swap", "/", "/home", and about 80GB of unallocated space. I want to incorporate that unallocated space into the home partition. I tried this by booting a live CD and starting GParted but it didn't give me the option to increase the size of my home partition or the primary partition as a whole. The only thing it would let me do is decrease the size of my home partition.
Finally i have installed ubuntu 10.10 on my home PC. Its working so so good i cant really imagine :-). At the time of partition due to my immaturity, i selected the size of '/' to be 10 Gb. Now i want to increase it without reinstalling ubuntu. Is there any safe way of doing it ? i did some research and came to know that Gparted might be of some help, but i will really be grateful if any of you can guide me.
the use of livecd for example, can i use liveusb instead ? i was thinking of making liveusb of centos 5.5.
I have installed ubuntu in my 500GB passport drive. The ubuntu partition size is 120GB. I want to increase the root partition size because i ran out of disk space for "/" I have installed Gparted and accidentally created new partition table. Then all my disk space turned into unallocated space. So, i immateriality rebooted my system. Then, I am not able to boot into the drive. Moreover it is not detecting in windows too. How to undone that "MISTAKE" ??
I copied 10.4 from a 20gig hd. onto an 80 gig hd with Clonezilla and now I can't get Gparted to expand the partition to include the 50 gig that is unallocated. Obviously I cloned the drive incorrectly.
I am very much new user of ubuntu and hardly know anything about linux. What is swap memory? I have dual boot system with windows7 and ubuntu 9.04. My hard disk size is 320GB and RAM is 4GB. Currently swap memory size is 4.3GB. Can I increase swap size? Will it have any advantage? How to do that?
I got back to my laptop after dinner and found a blank screen with one line of text saying something about running out of swap space - I tried all kinds of key combinations but nothing worked to bring the desktop back - eventually I pressed and held the power button to shut it down - I suppose this is Ubuntu's version of the "blue screen of death"?I went to System - Disk Utility to make a 2GB free space right after the swap space. Then I tried to make that 2GB free space a swap space partition but it came back with an error
I have a dual boot machine ( win 7 & Ubuntu 10.04 ) which is reporting insufficient space on the Linux partition. I boot up into gparted and reduce the size of the the preceding partition but when I try to increase the size of the following ( linux ) partition, it won't allow it. Attached is a screenshot of the gparted info screen.
I am trying to install Ubuntu via Wubi on a 120GB hard drive but the max installation size is only 30GB. I can NOT use a CD/DVD or USB to boot because I get an error 'BOOTMGR is missing press CTRL + ALT + Delete to restart' I'm currently on Windows 7 and have looked into fixing that error. I have tried using a Windows 7 recovery disc and followed some guides but I can't seem to fix it. So I am left with the only option of installing Ubuntu via Wubi but I want to use the entire hard drive, and not just 30GB. So what I'm asking is if there is a way to increase the size.
