If you have strace, and it is not setuid to root, then strace -e '!all' program_name [argument(s)] should work.  strace(1) says (under BUGS): Programs that use the setuid bit do not have effective user ID privileges while being traced. because it would be a security problem if a non-privileged user could trace a setuid program (because tracing lets ...

lspci -k will show devices and modules loaded for them. You can grep it for the specific device you are looking for, such as 'VGA' lspci -k|grep -A2 VGA

It looks like you want to have a login prompt in graphics mode. This is called a display manager. Instead of calling xinit, install a display manager and make sure your system runs it when it starts (that's the case in most distribution if you install a package containing a display manager). You can install the old-school, minimalist xdm, or a less barebones ...

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, ...

If you want to always run an X session as a particular user, restarting it when it exits, then you could do worse than to install nodm. It is very small and will take care of all that. It doesn't require any window manager; all it needs is a .xsession file in the target user's home directory. If you really want to go with startx, you could make your xterm ...

I've managed to get it running; installed plasma desktop package: pacman -S plasma (more details here) and pointed X to it(appended the following line to ~/.xinit): exec startkde Running startx launches KDE.

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 ...

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"; ...

Let's try simplifying this a little. I'm not aware of any symbols command keys.type=MULTI, so I removed that line first. I saved your file as keys (minus that line) and ran xkbcomp -w 10 keys. It reports: Warning: No automatic type for 6 symbols Using for the <TLDE> key (keycode 49) Warning: Type "" is not ...

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 ...

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 ...

This was a result of one of its dependencies: font-config, which sets the default font for many things.

I am pretty sure all those options you specify should be in the Device section with the nvidia driver and not the Screen section. Also UseDisplayDevice can also be set to "none" according to the docs but I have never tried this.

I had a similar error where xfce4 suddently wouldn't start after an automatic update on chrome's side. Solved the problem by downloading the latest version of crouton (https://github.com/dnschneid/crouton) and running sudo sh ~/Downloads/crouton -u -t xfce. (-u for update and -t xfce to specifiy xfce environment target.) I'm by no means an expert, but it ...

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" != ...

X has no access limit to configure - this is not something that is supposed to happen, but instead sounds like a bug in ATI's fglrx driver. The only limit in this area X is expected to have is a limit on the number of open client connections - that's not configurable without recompiling the source code today, but patches have been proposed to allow an ...

Reverse tunnel method You can SSH from A to B but you want to SSH from B to A? A generic solution is to create a reverse SSH tunnel. From SERVER: ssh -f -N -R 4222:localhost:22 CLIENT Now you can SSH to port 4222 on CLIENT and log into the server. Turn on X11 forwarding on that connection. ssh -p 4222 -X localhost Manual setup method Alternatively, ...

As long as I found the proper solution, I will answer my own question. There is a program named keyfuzz that can change the keyboard maps used by the kernel, based on input devices - i.e. separately for every keyboard attached to the computer. There are two problems with this program that are not described properly in the documentation: The USB ...

You can use the "Shift + Insert" key bindings for most applications. If you install the xdotool command, you can also send a click event on the command line. $ xdotool click 2

Export a different display before trying to open an X11 connection: export DISPLAY=:1 Then launch your GUI and it should work.

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 ...

I am running xserver-xorg-video-nouveau version 1:1.0.10-1ubuntu2 that comes with Linux Mint 17.1 (Rebecca).

Assuming you have ssh on the server (that is you can ssh out of the server just not to it), you can port forward from the server to your client. SERVER$ ssh -L6000:127.0.0.1:6000 CLIENT.ip.or.name This will forward the local 6000 port on the server through the ssh tunnel to the localhost port 6000.

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.

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.
