Since @Bob says there's no runtime configuration option for this and I didn't want to rebuild gdm3 from patched source, I took the following approach. First, move the real X server aside: sudo dpkg-divert --local --rename --add /usr/bin/Xorg Then drop a new shell script in place of /usr/bin/Xorg: #!/bin/sh test -x /usr/local/bin/Xorg && exec ...

Martin- Very similar setup on my end, except with a pair of nvidia GT9800's - circa 2008!. Also an onboard Intel HD4000 (disabled in bios). xrandr only showed 1 gpu, though all other sys related tools properly reported both. ubuntu 14.04 lts beta 2, nvidia 331.28 proprietary The holy grail fix for me last night was: Base Mosaic! Empty xorg.conf, nvidia x ...

I would take a look at this guide from the CrashPlan website titled: CONFIGURING A HEADLESS CLIENT. It spells out the details of how one would go about installing CrashPlan for use in a headless situation, which is really what you want. But I just want to disable the GUI If you're using a desktop environment such as GNOME you can launch the configuration ...

If you add imagemagick into the equation, then the answer to your question is yes. What follows is what could be a rather crude implemenation: mv current.bg old.bg imagemagick convert old.bg -fill black -colorize 50% transition.bg feh --bg-scale transition.bg imagemagick convert new.bg -fill black -colorize 50% transition.bg feh --bg-scale transition.bg feh ...

Discovered this question: http://askubuntu.com/questions/219044/ati-proprietary-driver-over-underscan-setting-ignored-after-reboot Looks like it was just an underscan issue. Running the following as root: aticonfig --initial #if you haven't already setup your xorg.conf for ATI aticonfig --set-pcs-val=MCIL,DigitalHDTVDefaultUnderscan,0 and now ...

I should have known better, but OS X does not come with an X server. You need to install your own. Once you install XQuartz, you can restart and the problem goes away.

What makes you think X-related processes are still running? When you log in remotely xrdp (re-)connects you to your GUI environment. If you don't have one running already then xrdp-sesman will cause a GUI environment to get initialized. (If you want to prevent that you could sudo service xrdp stop although it will likely come back on re-boot unless you ...

I found a decent workaround using Xephyr and VirtualGL! Install both Xephyr and VirtualGL, then fire up Xephyr with your preferred settings: Xephyr -screen 1024x768 :1 If everything went well, you will now be able to launch executables with OpenGL acceleration in Xephyr! DISPLAY=:1 vglrun -- glxgears

If you don't have xwd and xwud already installed on your system I would be very surprised if you could not easily install them via package manager in a few seconds at most. % man xwd NAME xwd - dump an image of an X window SYNOPSIS xwd [-debug] [-help] [-nobdrs] [-out file] [-xy] [-frame] [-add value] [-root | -id id | -name name ] ...

It's probably the fault of the game, not the fault of the screenshot utility. X11 sends applications a VisibilityNotify event to tell them that their window is fully visible, partially obscured or totally obscured. When the window is totally obscured, most applications don't bother updating their display, which saves resources. In other words, if nobody is ...

If your code of C# has the GUI, you need assign a $DISPLAY to it. You can give $DISPLAY first with echo $DISPLAY at your remote linux. If you want to use the RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol), you can install package of xrdp. $ sudo apt-get install xrdp connection to remote server (Remmina, ). open terminal and get $DISPLAY. $echo $DISPLAY :10.0 run mono ...

The fourth column of lsof's output tells you that this directory is the current working directory (cwd) of the process. Most probably compton was started in this directory. Most probably you might kill the process and restart it in another directory (e.g. /). You might try forcing it to leave the directory with this hack: Attach a GDB to the process by ...

The userland GUI stack begins with the Xorg server, which manages hardware -- both the display and input devices -- and provides the foundations of a windowing environment. It is a server whose clients are GUI applications that appear in a window. I believe the name was originally derived from one of the original X shaped cursors (but treat that as ...

Try setting X11UseLocalhost no on the server-side sshd_config. I had a similar issue and that solved my problem!

debug1: No xauth program. That looks like a problem. Make sure that you have the xauth program installed on both the server and the client. You're logging in as root, so make sure that xauth is in root's PATH, too. I'm not completely sure that this is the problem, because in my tests I found other error messages (“X11 forwarding request failed on channel ...

First of all, you can just use Persian Fonts instead :-). As described Persian Script is an adaption of arabic script. To search for fonts which could match you can use: $ otfinfo -s FreeFarsi.ttf arab Arabic or for all fonts: $ otfinfo -s *.ttf *.otf FreeFarsi-BoldItalic.ttf:DFLT Default FreeFarsi-BoldItalic.ttf:arab Arabic ...

X's logging behavior is: If there is a /var/log/Xorg.DISPLAY.log, rename it to /var/log/Xorg.DISPLAY.log.old, overwriting any file that might be there. Open /var/log/Xorg.DISPLAY.log, and begin logging to it. Unfortunately, this isn't configurable, except in the sense all open-source software is: you could change the source code and recompile. It's in ...

You could try a program like gnome-specimen which shows the text you choose rendered in the different fonts. If you en ter text with persian glyphs you should be able to locate a font that handles them:     Image shamelessly stolen from @derobert's answer.

Fontmatrix (home page is dead, unfortunately) appears to be the best of the bunch. It supports filtering on a variety of attributes, tagging fonts, and has a nice comparison display. It takes forever to start up, at least the first time, as it collects all the font info into a SQLite database. It is in Debian. You can combine filters with either AND or OR, ...

font-manager allows you to make collections of fonts for manual categorization, etc. It also allows some searching, by font "type" which includes things like script, decorative, text, etc. It is in Debian. It has a compare feature that lets you compare multiple fonts with your choice of text. It also has a browse screen that shows all fonts at once (well, ...

gnome-specimen shows multiple fonts, but lacks any filtering (other than by name). It is in Debian:

Opcion font viewer is an open source program for viewing fonts. It is a Java jar, so it can be run with the following command: java -jar Opcion_v1.1.1.jar Project's SourceForge page However, AFAIK this is not available in the repositories.
