How does X-server calculate DPI? The DPI of the X server is determined in the following manner: The -dpi command line option has highest priority. If this is not used, the DisplaySize setting in the X config file is used to derive the DPI, given the screen resolution. If no DisplaySize is given, the monitor size values from DDC are used to derive the ...

Take a look at this similar question over at superuser. Something like "xdotool key Home" End + Up in the .xbindkeysrc file should suffice. If you really want to try to use xmodmap, a start would be to map either the End key or the Up key to a modifier key in .Xmodmap. For example, you could grab your two keys with xev and map the End key to ...

However, I would love to know why ~/.Xauthority needs not to be owned by the root account in order to get past login with a regular user (in other words: why is that the reason for the login failure) Because X wants to write/replace that file when it starts your session. If you do not have write permissions on it, then it can't do that. do you have ...

Besides InputClass there also exists a section called InputDevice which takes nearly the exact same options as InputClass. Of course you cannot use the Match* operators but have to give the device's path explicitly: Section "InputDevice" Identifier "touchpad" Driver "synaptics"   Option "Device" "/dev/input/event<X>" Option ...

.Xauthority is actually a security feature of X, the graphical system. It part of what prevents unauthorized access to your graphical session(s), key loggers or tracking mouse clicks for example. Security is a broad topic, and .Xauthority is one part of security mind you and covers local access, not necessarily tracking of mouse clicks by web sites ;) ...

As far as I know, starting with version 1.7, xorg defaults to 96 dpi. It doesn't calculate anything unless you specify DisplaySize via Xorg config files. Also, don't rely on xdpyinfo output. My laptop runs on Intel SandyBridge. Excerpt from my Xorg.0.log on a fresh Archlinux install: (==) intel(0): DPI set to (96, 96) running xdpyinfo | grep -E ...

Have a look at /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc (this may be different places on different systems) to see what files it sources. Generally, this will have an if..elif..else structure, so that only one initialization file is read, with $HOME/.Xclients prioritized then /etc/X11/xinit/Xclients. That's almost certainly where the terminal that appears comes from (I am ...

I'm not 100% sure but I found this on this on the SteelSeries website in one of their FAQs: Q: Where can I get World of Warcraft MMO drivers for the Linux platforms. A: Unfortunately we do not have any plans to develop proprietary Linux drivers anytime soon for the WoW Mouse, but we would happily assist any community-driven efforts to develop ...

For every VM, that is properly configured, qemu-kvm starts a VNC or spice listener. The port and security are defined in the libvirt VM definition file (virsh edit VMNAME will give you access to that) Once the VM is running, you can access the VM console directly using a VNC or SPICE client, no need to jump through hoops with X redirection

I know of 2 ways to do this when the system is remote, so given the 2nd X server is locally running on your system (:1) should really make no difference. Method #1 - VNC You could setup VNC on the 2nd X server and then run vncviewer :1 from the 1st X desktop. Method #2 - XDMCP If you want to remote display an entire desktop from one system to another ...

I know how shift selection works...It's not possible to yank the entire contents of a file (including what is off screen) to the clipboard using that method. Dunno if it will work via X forwarding into windows, but try the * register for that. Go to the top, in normal (not --INSERT--) mode, "*10000yy (yank 10000 lines into register *). Register * is ...

You need to specify the display to connect to on the remote machine, e.g.: xeyes -display 192.168.0.104:0 In general, a display name is: hostname:displaynumber.screennumber hostname can be omitted for local connections, and .screennumber can be omitted to use the default screen.

Yes you can install all these package groups, even without having a GUI. Virtualization Virtualization Client Virtualization Platform Virtualization Tools virt-manager Remember that you can ssh into the KVM host and remote display any GUIs such as virt-manager if needed. Also with the libvirtd service running you can run virt-manager from other hosts ...

The Asus P8Z68-V Pro/Gen3 mainboard has an onboard graphics adapter. When I attached a screen to the onboard adapter (which I usally don't use), I noticed that the screen was actually not staying blank, but Debian used the internal graphics to display a boot error - even when I set "Initiate Graphic Adapter" to PCIE/PCI instead of iGPU (internal). I get ...
