I know what's going on here. Problem is not how to set the screen saver (it's really easy and the light locker settings work just like they are supposed to work) - but that sometimes it keeps mysteriously resetting to its default position (10 minutes). How? here's the punchline. Gnome Mplayer resets the screensaver for some reason on pause and exit. Here's ...

I've just had the same issue today, on a freshly installed 15.04. My problem was about the animation on the Google Chrome download page, and my graphics card's driver's not being able to handle it. I am using an Nvidia graphics card, so I tried installing proprietary Nvidia driver and problem solved. I suggest you try installing/updating the driver for your ...

I was facing similar issues with my laptop before. I found that I could fix this by running the command unity --replace from command line (alt + F2). On my laptop this temporarily fixed the issue.

I had this problem with Ubuntu 12.04 on my netbook (1024x600 screen). I "solved it" (really worked around it) by making sure that all windows start out maximized. This helps, because maximized windows that are bigger than the screen, show the scroll bars. And, if you can access the scroll bars, you can thereby reach all parts of the window. To do this, ...

There are two projects on the subject of screen rotation: 1) rubo77's screen-rotate-sh on git, wich is a manual executed script that could be mapped to a key/ combination. It also "should" disable the touchpad with the xinput enable/deisable "$TouchpadDevice" code in the script. In my case it didn't so I changed the code slightly to execute synclient ...

I had the same problem as you mate. I also have ATI Radeon 8600M on my Dell laptop. I came up with two workarounds for this problem that I will describe, so you do not have to bang your head. I know what I am going to propose you is not direct solution for the problem. It is the best workaround that I have found so far from my experience. I will be very ...

Depending on the kind of on-the-fly video-editing you want to do, the easiest way to do this would be to transcode on the fly... Let's say that you want to add a simple watermark onto a video, then you take the video, stream it, capture the stream, add the watermark and re-stream it. (off course above example is so simple that you can just do it with the ...

You can use the following python script to start your application at a given resolution: #!/usr/bin/env python3 import argparse import re import subprocess import sys parser = argparse.ArgumentParser() parser.add_argument('--output', required=True) parser.add_argument('--resolution', required=True) parser.add_argument('APP') args = parser.parse_args() ...

xrandr will list your existing outputs. Get the id of the tv, then do xrandr --output $TV --off to turn if off. Or xrandr --output $TV --auto to turn it on. Not sure about toggling, but you might be able to hack something together.

The package Caffeine solves this exact problem. It installs an indicator at the top right portion of the top menu, where time and battery is located. And you can enable it before playing full screen videos and during that time, it will not dim. After watching the movie or video, disable it again, to get the dimming functionality back. In order to install ...

Assuming the change in resolution is both causing the error and the trigger to run your script, periodicalloy checking the resolution and run your script if it changes should do the job: #!/usr/bin/env python3 import subprocess import time command = "</path/to/script_to_run>" def get_res(): # get resolution xr = ...

The highest screen resolution of 1366 x 768 in Systems Settings -> Displays is correct. The Dell Latitude E7240 Notebook comes with a display with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and a screen size of 12.5 inches. Even with the screen resolution set to 1366 x 768, it's sometimes going to be difficult to read text on the screen without being rather close to ...

Your stop script does not define port (check the start script, that one does, and this is missing). So when you run the screen -S $port -X quit command, it looks like ($port is not defined so it results in a blank string): screen -S -X quit Screen interprets this as "set the session name to -X, then run the quit command inside a shell". If you had the ...

we have a Casper netbook (some Taiwan product) with intel chipset. When I installed Xubuntu it only worked at 800x600 and I couldn't find any drivers that support 1024x600. I was about to give up and look for another OS but then a miracle happened. We connected our LCD TV and rebooted while it was on and VGA cable was plugged. Suddenly netbook display was ...

Ok, I figured it out. I created 2 scripts, the first runs the script in screen: #!/bin/bash screen -S server $HOME/rubix/start.sh The next is what the first runs, which you can see above.

Do you want to do some countdown, while screen is active? If so, you could change your if and for with while loop, like this: while (screen -list backup|grep -q backup); do # delay sleep 1 # display another dot echo -n . done This displays a dot every second until your screen session terminates. As for countdown, how would you even know ...

While I don't have an actual answer to your question, I do have a work-around which I have been using to get your described behaviour. If you right click on a window titlebar, you'll get multiple options and amongst those there should be one saying something like "Always visible on workspace". This will make the window appearing on all workspaces.
