OpenSUSE Hardware :: Screen Fonts And Colors Also Look Terrible Compared To Windows / Ubuntu

Jul 14, 2010

I have used Ubuntu and Linux Mint for quite some time now until I got a new machine. Some friends told me to try OpenSUSE because it has really been polished over the last few years.Install went smoothly got everything working properly except for my video card. My video card is an ATI HD4890 with sound support over HDMI. I had the sound working in Ubuntu using the non-oss ATI drivers. I was wondering if someone could please teach me how to install them again here on OpenSUSE 11.3. My screen fonts and colors also look terrible compared to Windows or Ubuntu.

Is there a way I can make it look better? I remember CCC (Catalyst Control Center for ATI) had two color formats (RGB and YCbCr). I had to set it to YCbCr because my screen is an HDTV and it looked much cleaner than RGB. Is there a way I can acheive similar results with OpenSUSE?

Ubuntu :: How To Change Window Backgrounds

May 25, 2010

I'm trying to install an emerald theme while maintaining the Compiz desktop effects. I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Lynx and have installed Emerald Theme Manager and Compiz. I was looking for a good theme to go with my background/laptop and took a liking to this one I'm sure this is a stupid question but how do I install this? By following the link to the rgba true theme, there are "instructions" on how to install it, but I just cant figure it out. I have the window borders setup but I'm stumped on how to get the transparent black window backgrounds(by window backgrounds I mean everything inside the frame). The frame works fine but it looks terrible with the solid white window interior. Can someone tell me how to get this working? I have already tried Compiz opacity (terrible, makes everything unreadable). Every background setting I see is RGB, no transparent setting. If it helps, I'm trying to get everything ~75% transparent, no solid colors.

Ubuntu :: Cycle Desktop Backgrounds In 11.04?

May 24, 2011

I just updated to 11.04, and noticed in the "Background" tab of the appearance app, that there was what looked like a default option to cycle a set of backgrounds. However, when I selected it, the only background that appeared was the first one in the series, and it never cycled.

1) Is cycling backgrounds possible?

2) If so, can I create my own series of them?

Jul 16, 2011

In my orig. post I did not state that I was now using gnome in Ubuntu 10.10.I have "light sensitive eyes" and I have to be able to change the back ground colors from white to dark in such programs as Nautilus and editors.

Heres whats happening:I open Nautilus>Edit>Backgrounds and EmblemsI select Patterns>Drag a pattern title to an object to change itBut it don't work. I've tried the same thing with "Colors" and itdon't work.I have dragged using right mouse button, middle button, and left button and they don't work

Ubuntu :: Desktop Backgrounds - Location Of Picture?

Jan 9, 2010

I understand the pictures are in usr/share/backgrounds. When you select a picture from the internet to be your desktop background (as I have) where does the physical picture go? It does not go into usr/share/backgrounds - where is it?

Ubuntu :: How Does Appearance Pref Mgr Reference Backgrounds

Feb 16, 2010

Peering into gconf-editor, I noticed that under desktop>gnome>background the picture_filename is the original warty that comes pre-installed on karmic. However, I am not using that BG, instead one that i told the Appearance Preference manager to find and use. Does this app use a symbolic link to refer to the image, or is it elsewhere? Lookin in /usr/share/backgrounds my image does not exist. So what is drawing the BG? Is it nautilus or compiz?

Ubuntu :: Lost Backgrounds & Emblems In Nautilus?

Oct 17, 2010

Well I was curious to try Nautilus Elementary from its PPA. The install was fine, but the search function was broken. After having issues removing the PPA and my package manager having errors I have old Nautilus back, but without its old Backgrounds and Emblems in the Edit menu. I tried doing remove completely of Nautilus and its related packages but I don't have the old nautilus back as I need it.

I don't want to have to reinstall everything just for one application, as it means configuring settings and installing the rest of my apps all over again.

Ubuntu :: Firefox Has Black Backgrounds Under Some Popups In Kubuntu 11.04

May 20, 2011

Has anyone else using Kubuntu 11.04 with Firefox 4 noticed a black background underneath the speech bubble-looking dialogs that come from its top toolbar? Is anyone aware of an existing fix or workaround for this issue? It seems to not be a theme-specific bug (oxygen-gtk, qtcurve, and raleigh are all affected). Does it have anything to do with the black window-resize handle that you have to disable in .gtkrc-2.0-kde4?

Ubuntu :: Text, Menu And Icons Backgrounds Are Turquoise?

Aug 23, 2011

This is really annoying. In every X application (except xemacs) the text is written on a turquoise background. I can't find any information about making the text appear on the same colour as the background -- eg. if the text is a menu on the window, it should be on a grey background. If on a white screen then white. It is turquoise everywhere!

Ubuntu :: Windows Services And Security Settings For Samba?

Jan 28, 2010

I have been trying to get my Samba 3.x NAS to connect to my Windows XP laptop. I can see the server though I cannot open it and see the shares. I have run various tests on the network and Samba (ping, smbclient) though still cannot find why I can't connect.

I can access the NAS via webmin, so I am thinking I need the security or the services settings on the XP machine. Is there a list somewhere of the Windows XP services and security settings required to share files?

Debian Multimedia :: Desktops Forgetting Backgrounds?

Feb 28, 2011

Alright, my boss has discovered an odd issue with KDE4.4 on his laptop. He downloaded a Superman wallpaper for desktop 3 (he has four desktops) using the "Get new wallpapers" functionality, and he downloaded one to his Pictures directory inside his home directory and set it as the background for desktop 1. Now if he logs off and back on, everything is fine, but if he reboots both wallpapers are lost. If he goes into the desktop settings, the wallpapers are there and selected, but they won't show up unless he clicks OK again
