I do a little research about the software for my problem, and I found GIMP is best for image editing and crop selctions or windows and save or edit the image in any format.

My personal preference is Gwenview, which is a highly customizable and easy to use image viewer/image managing application. Crop function under "Menubar -▸ Edit -▸ Crop" or crtl+k Also supports simple image manipulations: rotate, mirror, flip, and resize, basic file management actions such as copy, move, delete and others. It is a Lightwave ...

Snapshot tools record the desktop at its running resolution. If you need a higher resolution picture then you will need to increase your screen resolution. If you have a small screen, consider using a virtual machine (as its virtual screen can be larger than your host monitor). Steps: Step #1: Click on the "cog" in the top right corner of your screen, and ...

I believe you have an Optimus Laptop. As such, this Ubuntu Wiki Entry on Bumblebee. You did not buy a laptop with a full NVIDIA board. The Intel board computes the pixels etc and offloads the rendering to the NVIDIA board, under high load. Set up your X Server installation to use your Intel Chipset, then install the Bumblebee on top of it

Try to install the latest driver for your video card: Open a Terminal with Ctrl+Alt+t and type: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current Then restart your system to see if proprietary drivers helped to get OpenGL 3.2 support. You can see the supported version using the nvidia-settings utility:

Installed the driver using sudo apt-get install fglrx and this did the trick!

I'm sure the discrete graphics-card, the nvidia Geforce 710M, must be responsible for your heating problem. By using bumblebee you may have triggered it. I recommend using the nvidia-prime driver (activate in "system settings -> software & updates -> additional drivers -> nvidia-331") and to choose manually between integrated and discrete graphics, which ...

At the page where it freezes try pressing ctl+Alt+F1 to enter the text based log in and log in. From there, start the xserver with sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start If you are using gdm, the computer should start normally. Then just add it back into the things that start at boot up.

Compiz interferes with the driver's ability to actually refresh at 120 Hz. You can spend hours of your time wondering why everything (include glxgears) reports a 120 Hz refresh rate, yet the screen isn't actually updating that fast. If you have "Desktop Effects" or anything of that nature enabled, turn it off to compare both xrandr and glxgears refresh ...

Apologies, I am not a Fluxbox guru. If I were in your situation though, I would read these links and re-approach the issue: Link 1, Link 2. Link 1 gives the command to "Restart the Xsession": sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart But, logging out does the same (which you've tried). If you can install the software, then you can also uninstall it, possibly like ...

I assume the hardware of your laptop is too old for ubuntu 13.10. I'm not absolutely sure beacause an important information for judging this is the size of the RAM, which you don't tell. But at least the CPU is not strong. Note that Ubuntu needs more performance than Win XP. If RAM is even lower than 1 GB, it is better to take another *buntu. Even with 1 GB ...

I found out by trial that the bbswitch daemon alone can only turn the power on for the card. The driver is not loaded and card is not functional. Installing bumblebee is the solution. If uninstalling bbswitch manually doesn't work (using "purge bbswitch-dkms") bumblebee will uninstall it automatically. Other things I found out by experience: sometimes ...

After searching I found the answer in launchpad. This is an issue with xorg.conf file actually. One can generate the xorg.conf file by using the command sudo aticonfig --initial if one is having the AMD driver. Else one may try sudo nvidia-xconfig if one has nvidia graphic driver. Then one needs to open the xorg.conf file by running the below ...

I fixed the problem by installing the tested NVIDIA drivers for Ubuntu: I can see the following details: So, GeForce GT 750M /PCIe/SSE2 driver is installed.

Since Lubuntu, Xubuntu and others didn't work, I sticked to Ubuntu Server with a graphical user interface. No problems so far. Seems to be an option, if you've got an older PC with a graphic-card, that just won't do. Cheers.

To answer the main question, Yes. Your onboard graphics are powerful enough to run Xbuntu. If trying a new graphics card doesn't work, I would take a look at your RAM and do a memory check. It sounds like an old machine so it could be anything that could be "broken".

I have a Core2Duo and 2 lower spec Pentium dual cores, all 3 have onboard Intel graphics and all run various version of Xubuntu (and Ubuntu/Kubuntu) without problem, the GPU is plenty powerful enough for desktop usage.

You can install proprietary graphic card driver from this website . Select the appropriate options in that site and you will see the driver for your graphic card.

The command-line console is your friend. From your X session, hit ctrlaltF1 (it should also work with F2-F6 or so). That will take you to one of the built in consoles (aka terminals), where you can do the uninstall/reinstall "by hand" using apt-get or whatever. If you have access to another computer, you could SSH in instead, I think that is set to run on a ...

I do not think you can get the proprietary driver working without doing a standard install. Persistence will save data and changes, and you can install some packages, but it uses a cow (copy on write) so it does not replace a standard installation. This is an example of where persistence will not work. Once you do an install, each driver should have a ...

You should run: sudo nvidia-xconfig sudo modprobe nvidia sudo restart lightdm This will activate the installed driver. Actually, xorg.conf is anachronism. Newest X drivers do not need it. But NVIDIA wants it to be written to work properly. Example /etc/X11/xorg.conf: # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig # nvidia-xconfig: ...

I used sudo apt-get install nvidia-current. There should be a new driver that appears in the Additional Drivers GUI. Restart your computer. If you have Optimus enabled in the BIOS, you either have to disable it or install Bumblebee. Otherwise, you will have grey icons on the dashboard.

I've found virtually all errors of this type to be solveable by running MOZ_DISABLE_IMAGE_OPTIMIZE=1 firefox in a terminal, to test if it works. If it does, I just add MOZ_DISABLE_IMAGE_OPTIMIZE=1 to /etc/environment (you would then have to log out and log back in for this to take effect from your desktop environment I think, although from a newly opened ...

The solution was to renable Optimus in the Dell BIOS - under Video section. The Intel integrated GPU was then restored to the hardware list and Ubuntu correctly detected it and used the default drivers. I don't actually remember changing that setting but in my flapping with the NVidia driver I must have tried that.

You have a quite old card.

The one solution that solved this for me was trying Ubuntu 14.04's Beta 1 image, written to a USB. It booted from this image to the live environment without any issues whatsoever, and installation worked perfectly. After reboot, it booted from the HDD, then rebooted itself twice. After that, I was able to log in and use Ubuntu.

I very recently installed that 14.3 beta driver that ATI provides. This was my system specs and I am using Ubuntu 13.10. X.Org/X Server - 1.14.5 Kernel 3.11.0 Eglibc version - 2.17 So that clearly tells you the story. You dont need to be that specific. I would suggest that you follow the installer notes and also check the release notes(I suppose you ...

As per the question linked by you, you have GeForce GT 330M and ubuntu detected intel card as display driver.
