I'm sorry that actually there is no way you can have hardware accel with an old ATi GPU. But you can have some acceleration with the open source driver (I guess it'd need a non-free firmware, is there any problem reported at boot, if yes try install firmware-linux). And thank to llvmpipe, you still have 3d accel (rendered via software, of course), and I ...

In CCSM (Compiz Config Settings Manager), there is the "Rotate Cube". You can change the KeyBindings there, as shown in the screenshot: As shown in the screenshot, I customized them to F1, F2, F3, F4 and they work perfectly fine. Using Viewport Switcher If you do not wish to use "Rotate Cube" and wish to use the good old Viewport Switcher, then first ...

An X server without a display driver would not be able to display anything. This exists, for example Xvfb, which “displays” to a memory buffer. This has its uses, such as to perform automated processing (e.g. testing) involving programs with a graphical user interface, but you won't see anything with it, by definition. If you meant that you don't want to ...

In Ubuntu, I use these commands: ssh -X user@host gnome-session or ssh -Y user@host gnome-session

xdotool is good enough to do so. Run xdotool getactivewindow and you'll see the result (int) The window can be over ANY monitor. Just read where is located the x11 pointer waiting for a click :), and no matter if it's a remote window, a vncserver or the 3rd desktop of the cube desktop environment. Just works. You can play it using sleep for better testing ...

Hard shutdowns sound a lot like overheating. Are your laptop CPU's fan and heatsink clean and without dust? Perhaps it would be worth running some compressed air through to clean them up. Another test you could do would be to use another distribution's Live CD, without installing it on the hard drive. This would allow you to rule out (or confirm) problems ...

I've seen in the Debian doc that if xorg.conf is missing (which is my case) Xorg will probe your hardware on every startup. So I did an apt-get install firmware-linux-nonfree (I have Debian stable) and installed the xserver-xorg-video-????? (most popular video cards). After having tested in some machines now, this seem to be the answer since all the tests ...

I removed every package related to Desktop and Window environment with aptitude and installed x-window-system, xfce4, gdm3, vnc4server.

To solve this you should use the official Drivers from Nvidia and from the OpenSuSE's Nvidia repo. The easiest way is to go to this link and select the "GeForce 6 and GeForce 7". You are selecting GeForce 6 because of the output of lspci Installing multiple Nvidia drivers can cause issues (I know from personal experience) so if the YUP suggests removing ...

I believe the x-server was designed as a client-server architecture because initially computing resources were scarce and mainframes did most of the heavy lifting. X-terminals were just thin clients that connected to x-servers and displayed whatever needed to be displayed to the user. It does have a lot of benefits (albeit the communication protocol for ...

From startx(1) - Linux man page: The startx script is a front end to xinit that provides a somewhat nicer user interface for running a single session of the X Window System. It is often run with no arguments. And this is where it came from. (link) It runs an XServer and a window manager. The details are too long so I'll give links. It's actually ...

AFAIK, programs that need that (like media players), either disable DPMS/the screensaver by themselves or have options for that behavior. So I'd look for an option in Wine, or go with the wrapper script.

Fixed my own problem. Downloaded the newest version of crouton and issued sudo sh ~/Downloads/crouton -u -n chrootname and everything's back to normal. Here chrootname refers to the username used during the crouton installation.

dconf-service is automatically started by the session daemon1 when needed, as per the same documentation page: Users or administrators should never need to start the service, as it will be automatically started by dbus-daemon(1) whenever an application tries to write settings. Reading values from the dconf database does not involve the service; it is only ...

rpm -q gtk3-devel, at the most basic level. But, installing that is not necessarily going to pull in everything you need. You can short-cut this by installing the GNOME Software Development group. (Even if you are not doing GNOME development, this happens to be a group which contains gtk3-devel and many related packages.) Do this: sudo yum groupinstall ...

Works for me, debian wheezy -> ubuntu trusty. Note: in this case the server is not running a display-manager, it's a 'headless' virtual machine with no graphics card or monitor attached. bob@laptop:~$ grep -iB 1 tcp /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf [security] DisallowTCP = false bob@laptop:~$ ssh -C -R 6000:127.0.0.1:6000 alice@server X11 forwarding request failed on ...
