It seems to be an issue with the way Compiz is displaying the window. Try right-clicking in the empty space to the left of the new tab button, then select "Use system title bar and borders".

I had a very similar problem with disappearing text, especially in synaptic. In my case the problem disappeared (and the text reappeared) after switching "Subpixel-Geometry" to be found in the font menu of Appearance from whatever it was before to "none". Unfortunately, I dont know any explanation for that, because I just found it by trial-and-error.

I'd assume it's exactly the contrary and ILGI isn't using the proxy. Quite a few programs don't read the desktop's proxy settings and therefore don't work behind a proxy. I experience this every day in my school. However, you can force such programs to connect through the proxy. For this, you have to start the program from a terminal, in which you set the ...

You installed the wrong driver for your NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500 graphics card. The driver you installed is for the NVIDIA Quadro 4000 graphics card which has 2GB built-in memory. Your NVIDIA Quadro FX 3500 graphics card has only 256MB built-in memory, so you need to uninstall the NVIDIA 304.88 driver and install the NVIDIA Legacy driver. Uninstall all ...

Easy: Shut down the machine completely. Boot up and go into the BIOS Disable nvidia Continue booting Done!

Gave up on fixing after every fix lead to the discovery of other odd, worrying problems (see comments stream). Took the graphics card out, and reinstalled the OS after finding that the xserver and lubuntu-desktop were gone, the ATI driver was spitting out seg faults.

Most likely the problem is caused by qgis. I had similar problem, in my case I was able to login then I had only cursor and empty screen. Removing qgis and running autoremove mostly fixed problem (qgis also destroyed my start menu, maybe there is also other for now undetected damage). (note - it is more suitable for comment but I am unable to post one as I ...

You've just got a really ancient card and no matter what you're going to do, it's going to be slow as the proverbial tortoise. I would just install Lubuntu (or upgrade my hardware)... Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news. :-(

So I don't have an answer (yet) but I'm researching the issue as I will be having a similar problem next week when my NP8651 arrives. I'm looking here for a solution and am working with getting optimus working on a thinkpad 420s (sandy-bridge+nvidia) which should be the same problem. ...

I want to add my answer here because I couldn't install the NVidia driver, I couldn't get tty working and I wasn't able to install it in safe mode root shell. What I did was a combination of two answers here: NOTE: before doing this, be sure that the NVidia driver is already downloaded and in an accessible directory. For reference, I have NVIDIA GEFORCE ...

I have almost the same problem in my some years old MaxData laptop (nVidia GeForce Go 7400). Vertical stripes, mostly red, visible especially in BIOS / text mode screen, less in higher resolutions (1024x768). There are always about 5 stripes each 8 pixels apart, then a gap, then again stripes and so on. Additionaly when in text mode about 1/3 of all symbols ...

The standard Ubuntu NVidia drivers generate some problems on slightly older and slightly newer NVidia hardware. If you want more then the standard Ubuntu repository drivers, install the xorg.edgers PPA. As the xorg.edgers group ask not to give installation instructions directly without linking to their page, this is the best I can do. If you don't know ...

Why are you using the 331 driver from the edgers PPA? nvidia-331 is available directly from the Software Center. Guessing at your specs, you might also have some trouble running Ubuntu with Unity. It is a little greedy on graphics, especially with that graphics card. Xubuntu with the XFCE environment might be a better option.

I have same laptop as yours. I installed Nvidia drivers successfully. If possible check whether your system is 32-bit or 64-bit and after installation don't start the lightdm service. Open the terminal and run the following commands: sudo service lightdm stop sudo init 3 sudo chmod +x <file_name>.run sudo sh <file_name>.run sudo apt-get ...

Try to install the below and check whether the issue gets fixed off, sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-ati xserver-xorg-video-radeon Hope this helps.

Run grep EE /var/log/Xorg.0.log I'd you get something similar to: [ 247.145] (EE) open /dev/dri/card): No such file or directory Then the problem lies in having a video driver set up wrong. For example if you have an intel video card and have a Nvidia driver installed it won't work. Run lspci and find your video adapter. If it's mixed matched you can ...

Boot from a livecd - the one you used to install ubuntu should be fine. Or download another one in your windows partition, burn it and boot from that. Mount the filesystem. It will be something like sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt If you can't find it, run dmesg | grep sda to discover the hard disks that have been detected by the kernel, and you can mount ...

If it was edited using gedit, It would have made a xorg.conf~ file. Delete the xorg.conf file and rename the xorg.conf~ file as xorg.conf. For the brightness problem, do this : Simply go to /etc/default/grub.cfg as root and find the line which says something like GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX= (............) paste these lines into the double quotes : quiet splash ...

xorg.conf is obsolete now in Ubuntu 14.10 and I'm running a catalyst drivers without it. I also had flickering with dual screens and I'm hoping I can fix it with something like: xrandr --output DFP10 --primary xrandr --output DFP9 --same-as DFP10 Still experimenting to see if that would fix the problem.

I've had this problem as well and can possibly be related to the kernel. You can either try booting up on older kernel with GRUB and seeing if another older kernel boots correctly. If it does, you might need to report a bug report on http://launchpad.net/

It's a catalyst bug. It has been a year thet this bug exist and amd still doing nothing. I have same cpu but with 8970m. It affects all distro as I was an Ubuntu user now an Arch one. And others people from Gentoo are also complaining about it. Even latest Omega driver doesn't solve the bug. All you can do now, is crying because, the open source driver for ...

must be something wrong with the card or the install. i have the GT72 with the 970m and it works fine under Ubuntu using the Intel graphics. im running 14.10 though. maybe try the Intel Graphics Installer for Linux.

The heating issue is mainly caused due to excessive CPU usage. The fact is Ubuntu is a Desktop OS, so heating is not a big issue. So, the solution we can apply here is install a Power Management module (it worked for me). Install TLP on Ubuntu TLP is an advanced power management command line tool for Linux that tries to apply these settings / tweaks for ...

Don't hold me to this but I think I may have solved your problem. Please install the Ubuntu Synaptic Package Manager. Then open it and in the search box type ATI RADEON. You should see about 40 results, most of which are listed specifically by the version they are made for. In your case trusty, and I see two of them and a bunch of generic drivers. ...

The two graphics cards will not run in the crossfire operation.The target is a system in which the R9 is passed to a virtual Windows machine (QEMU / KVM - Device Passtrough) The problem is, that i cant activate Display 2 without crossfire.

In order for you to properly use both screens, your cards must be Crossfire compatible. Since both of your cards are, we can now connect the two cards with a ribbon called a CrossfireX Cable. CrossfireX and SLi allow you to connect two or more cards as a single entity on a desktop motherboard. You must turn your PC off, open the shell of the Tower in ...

I found out what was causing the problem. The drivers weren't installed correctly. I found out that Intel does not have support for Ubuntu 14.10, only 14.04. I did a fresh install of 14.04 and now everything is working again.

Best choice would be the binary driver you've selected. Version 331.113 is the most recent version. Tested, I assume, means that it's the most stable version. The difference between binary and legacy drivers is that legacy drivers provide support for video cards no longer supported by NVIDIA. Source: Gladen The "proprietary" bit following the NVIDIA ...

Based on my recent experience, there are significant bugs in the latest release of the 331 series nVidia drivers; I reverted to the 304 family using Driver Manager (Kubuntu) and doing so restored full functionality. You might try enabling the "edgers" PPA to try the 340 family drivers (you'll have to install that driver with apt-get or a package manager if ...

I have used the following document to configure a M3800 + QUADRO K1100M + Intel HD4600 on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and everything works correctly and I can switch (manually) from Nvidia to Intel and vice versa. Do not forget to uninstall Bumblebee if you did so.

I have running to this situation multiple times . Here is how I fixed it : go to Nvidia website and download the lastest version of GT 755M SLI driver(make sure that you have selected right with x64 or x32). then press ctrl+alt+F1 open console . purge your installed Nvidia driver before installation. sudo apt-get purge nvidia Remove Xorg.conf for the ...

I am confused by this myself. The Bumblebee FAQ says, that it makes little sense to use the glxspheares output because of something about VirtualGL. I don't understand the issue, but so they say.

You can install compizconfig-settings-manager. Open ccsm, and click on the OpenGL tab to change the settings. First, make sure this plugin is enabled. Next, on the "texture filter" setting, change the setting to "Best" Also, go to "General Options" and to the "Display Settings" tab. Make sure "Detect Outputs" is enabled. Then, I'm not sure if it will ...
