I found the answer. I updated ~/.config/monitors.xml and looked for VGA1 which is my TV and set up correct width and height (1408x792) and after a restart the configuration was applied successfully.

That's because there is no package by that name. What are you trying to do? Are you following one of the official guides?

For me it worked to set the acceleration method of my intel driver to uxa. By creating /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf With the contents: Section "Device" Identifier "Intel Graphics" Driver "intel" Option "AccelMethod" "uxa" EndSection I got this from here. It was bugging my VirtualBox but also my Firefox. You can also check this....

You won't be able to use xcalib to invert your monitor. You will have to use the following utility to overcome this limitation. Note that as of date of last testing (2014, xcalib version 0.8) xcalib has not been able to invert the colors on all monitors in a multi-monitor setup, because all monitors are presented by the X11 server as a single ...

None of the answers here worked for me, and the options I wanted to set could not be specified in xorg.conf: $ xsetwacom -x get 'Wacom Intuos PT S Pad pad' button 1 Button: Actions are not supported by xorg.conf. Try shell format (-s) instead. I ended up having to start the script with a systemd service triggered by a udev rule: $ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/...

If you are using systemd you can find your current layout with localectl status which might print something like System Locale: LANG=en_US.UTF-8 VC Keymap: us X11 Layout: us X11 Model: pc104 X11 Options: caps:capslock Use these values when setting a new layout [model [variant [options]]], eg: sudo localectl set-x11-keymap ...

The log tells you what you should do about it: GPU hangs can indicate a bug anywhere in the entire gfx stack, including userspace. Please file a new bug report on bugs.freedesktop.org against DRI -> DRM/Intel drm/i915 developers can then reassign to the right component if it's not a kernel issue. The gpu crash dump is required to analyze gpu ...

You are not far wrong with that --transformation! The point is that you not only want to shift the screen to the right, but also you need to shrink it by half in the horizontal axis. To do so lets refer to the xrandr manual where we read: --transform a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i (...) In other words, the device coordinates (x' y') of the transformed ...

Presumably, you know about xset dpms which provides power management of the display, and brightd which does progressive backlight changes, but if these don't suffice you can detect movement once you are in idle mode by using xinput as follows. List the input devices with simply xinput and find the ids of the mouse and keyboard you want to listen to. In my ...

You can try using dbus. Specifically, use dbus-send to invoke the GetSessionIdleTime method on org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver: dbus-send --session --dest=org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver --type=method_call --print-reply=literal /ScreenSaver org.freedesktop.ScreenSaver.GetSessionIdleTime This will print out 4 spaces, then "uint32", then the number of milliseconds ...

I followed this tutorial to install NVidia driver for linux from NVidia: http://allaboutlinux.eu/remove-nouveau-and-install-nvidia-driver-in-debian-8/2/ and now I have NVIDIA X Server Settings GUI which can be launched from applications drawer, then I go to GPU 0 --> CRT-0 --> Color Correction and I'm able to set brightness to negative value. Hope this ...

Here's an attempt to automatize the analysis of the log: #!/bin/bash if [ -z "$1" ]; then logfile=/var/log/Xorg.0.log else logfile="$1" fi sed -n 's@.* Loading .*/\(.*\)_drv.so@\1@p' "$logfile" | while read driver; do if ! grep -q "Unloading $driver" "$logfile"; then echo $driver break fi done Any ...

Kbdmux combines two keyboard to one by switching the original devices to only return scancodes and translating them through only one keymap. When using Xorg kbdmux itself is switched to just return scancodes with Xorg doing the translation. The problem is of course that Xorg only sees one keyboard attached. So, I think your idea is in fact the only possible ...

It sounds as if you want pseudocolor, which isn't well supported anymore. A thread on Xorg a few years ago pointed out a problem with the feature, but concluded by suggesting that it could work with a vesa driver. Alternatively, a discussion on a Raspberry Pi forum suggested using Xephyr (a nested X server) in which one could run a client. Further reading: ...
