I enabled EFI for my VM while using gparted-live-0.22.0-2-i586 and it started working. I also noticed that the disk needed to be added to a SATA controller. It appears that older versions of gParted required EFI to be disabled.

You can try Ctrl+Alt+F2, or F3 or F4... Unless it was changed in Fedora 22, graphical server is started on first terminal of Fedora instead of 7th in Ubuntu. P.S. If that works, use Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go back to graphical server.

Some clarifications: nvidia-340xx-utils is not the driver itself, it is utilities for the (if I've understood correctly) proprietary driver which you haven't installed. xf86-video-* is open source video drivers, of which xf86-video-nouveau is the nvidia compatible one. pacman -Ss searches for packages, whereas sudo pacman -S installs them. Use sudo pacman ...

Linux has multiple virtual consoles. Ctrl+Alt+Fn switches between these consoles. When you switch from console 7 to console 2, the input and output peripherals are re-routed from console 7 to console 2. When console 7 is inactive, it has no access to the input/output peripherals: the display isn't shown on the screen, the applications don't receive keyboard ...

A while back, people used computer terminals to input data into, or display data from, a Unix mainframe. If any of this terminal users wanted to, let's say, cat /dev/zero, the output was not broadcasted to all terminals/users connected to the same mainframe (that's because it was a multi user system, and each user could run it's tasks without affecting other ...

I've just found out that this due to limitation of my hardware and not an issue with the driver. Firing up the nVIDIA proprietary, I've got the message: MetaMode 1 of Screen 0 has more than 2 active display devices. and after some googling around, I found a reference for nVidia cards older than the Kepler architecture (released March 22, 2012) that they are ...

Sorry, this is ancient, but perhaps even if it's too late for you, someone else may find this hint useful: In your types, add: type "CapsShiftSpecial" { modifiers= Shift+Hyper; map[Shift]= Level2; preserve[Shift]= Shift; map[Hyper]= Level3; map[Shift+Hyper]= Level4; preserve[Shift+Hyper]= Shift; level_name[Level1]= "Base"; ...

I have the same issue. From the doc, one could guess that the correct syntax would be something like that : $ setxkbmap -I$HOME/.config/xkb -option mine:accent Note : ~ doesn't work with the -I option with ~/.config/xkb/symbols/azerty_altgr partial default xkb_symbols "accent" { include "level3(ralt_switch)" key <AE02> { [ NoSymbol, ...

For those who, for whatever reason, don't want to take the hotplug route, it is still possible to not poll within a script using inotifywait: #!/bin/bash SCREEN_LEFT=DP2 SCREEN_RIGHT=eDP1 START_DELAY=5 renice +19 $$ >/dev/null sleep $START_DELAY OLD_DUAL="dummy" while [ 1 ]; do DUAL=$(cat /sys/class/drm/card0-DP-2/status) if [ "$OLD_DUAL" != ...
