Install the full xorg, plus virtualbox support (you might have to reboot after that): pacman -S xorg virtualbox-guest-utils If you really want to use startx you need either to change your ~/.xinitrc to start blackbox or install ugly old twm instead.

Just install gnome xfce or kde desktop environment, and put something like startxfce in ~/.xinitrc and run startx again, it will work So far it looks like there's nothing to start after X is loaded

The setting that you need to change is the Coordinate Transformation Matrix (144). In the following examples the mouse is device id=9 and the property number of the Coordinate Transformation Matrix (of my mouse) is 144 as you can find out with xinput list-props 9 Set it to default: xinput set-prop 9 144 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 1 Make X 5 times faster than Y: ...

The approach I thought of was an infinite loop bash script that checks idle time and runs the lock command if it's not already running. This won't work with xscreensaver as it's a client/server model but since you said "custom command" in your question I took the liberty of using the very simple screenlocker slock instead. You'll need to install two ...

I just removed xserver-xorg-video-intel, and rebooted. My /var/log/Xorg.0.log says : [ 17.662] (II) modeset(0): using drv /dev/dri/card0 My Xorg driver is modeset. My 3 screens setup is working well. The modesetting driver is builtin. So no need to install extra driver.

You need to parse xrandr output (or write a program, or whatever) to find the correct names, and massage your i3 configuration appropriately. The order of device detection is random, you can't depend on it.

This might be too case-specific. I resolved it by manually upgrading my window manager, sddm. sudo apt-get install sddm It now works for me.

Run through these basics, it's unclear what you mean by 'gui'. When you boot, you see grub, I assume. You hit enter, and the boot process starts. When you say 'splash screen', do you mean what you see right after you start the boot from grub process? Does the disk chatter for a while? Guess 1 This is unlikely, but because it's what most people with this ...

To take control of a running X session you will need to configure your VNC server to connect to the same display as X. Generally, X will be connected to the first display - :0. You will also need the X Authority for that X session. This can be found by accessing the X Authority file that the remote Display Manager is using. This depends on your Display ...

Thanks to @gollum, after some retries, we have figured out that the problem is with gdm, so the solution was to install lightdm (apt-get install lightdm), and it fixed the problem.

Technically Xlib is X11, although the developers of xcb have replaced parts of that with xcb (see Xlib and XCB). Doing that (to address limitations in the existing Xlib) was the purpose of writing xcb (see XCL : An Xlib Compatibility Layer For XCB). But no one has combined Xlib with Xt simply because the design goals differ a lot. Rather, other toolkits ...

The X window manager is started through the command ssh-agent dbus-launcher --exit-with-session i3, which means that the SSH agent is started right before the window manager. However, Debian sources .xsessionrc before this happens, so when xautolocker gets started, the SSH agent hasn't started and the environment variables needed for ssh-add to talk to the ...

http://mirrordirector-mb.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/x/xmacro/ This is a macro recorder. It's compiled but I assume it works as it says. I haven't tested it, but it seems a lot easier than hacking round with a python program that you can't figure out where it's breaking.

I solved the problem, it appears to be related to both bumblebee and the Nvidia driver. See also this Bumblebee issue. When Bumblebee wants to turn off the Nvidia card, it will try to run rmmod nvidia. But when I run this command Arch says it cannot unload this module because it is used by nvidia_modeset. Apparently, this new module was added recently to ...

Toggle function-keys pressing "F-Lock" (german "F-Umsch") Stumpling right into the same problem, I've found the reason for - at least - my problem: Using a ms natural 4000 keyboard sometimes requires to toggle the Function-keys pressing "F-Lock"-key located next to F12. (Toggling the Function-Key's might help with that type of keyboard too if you don't get ...

Because I don't have any reputation, I can't upvote the question or the above answer, or even make a comment. But I'd like to say that this, amazingly enough, works! I have a Cougar 700m, and it didn't work in Ubuntu. Steps to download, patch and compile the kernel for me, on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (mostly taken from ...

After further searching, I found this bug report which indicates that a potential fix was added in 2012, although the issue is not considered properly resolved. In any event, the workaround ppears to be the commands: xrandr --output HDMI-1 --set underscan on xrandr --output HDMI-1 --set "underscan hborder" 54 --set "underscan vborder" 51 Obviously the ...

My xdotool help informs me that your two switches are the same (xdotool version 3.20150503.1), --name check regexp_pattern agains the window name --title DEPRECATED. Same as --name. and as such doesn't do anything. My xdotool does the same as yours with replacing the window stack, so I did it with a shell script. A shell script doing what ...

From man 5 xorg.conf, after describing a whole lot of locations under /etc: Finally, configuration files will also be searched for in a directory reserved for system use. This is to separate configuration files from the vendor or 3rd party packages from those of local administration. These files are found in the following directory: ...
