I think that the easiest way to do this is to simply to, yes, re-install. You might also get away by purgeing the Xorg packages. To do this, you need to find out all of the installed X11 server packages and run: sudo apt-get --purge remove <X11 packages> sudo apt-get --purge autoremove sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop Note that this may remove ...

In Ubuntu, Nautilus is set to handle desktop by default (to manage desktop icons, menu, etc), and if you have Nemo installed, there will be a conflict, both will be automatically loaded every time you logging in, to take control of the desktop. If you want to stop Nautilus from handling the desktop and want to set Nemo instead, you can do the followings: ...

Figured it out. So there are two problems that need to be solved to make this work.: 1) The second DVI-Dual-Link monitor needs the EDID file because the monitor has a corrupt EDID. (The EDID file I was using, as you can tell by the file-name, was originally sourced from a Shimian branded monitor, and I don't know how it was done, but I know that it works. ...

The USB3.0 Displaylink devices do NOT support Linux In particular, this includes the Displaylink DL3XXX-generation and newer. Displaylink has no intention to make a driver in foreseeable future. See this thread. Wim of Displaylink wrote on 08-17-2012: We don't have any ETAs at the moment, and still looking at the best path to do this. One issue is ...

On my side, with Ubuntu 14.04, the paths are different and Nvidia proprietary driver override libglx.so in /usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/libglx.so. To solve the issue, I duplicate /usr/lib/xorg/modules in /usr/lib/xorg/modules-nvidia and then reinstall the Intel friendly libglx.so with : sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-core This restore ...

(start rant) I post my solution here if someone stumbles on the same quite annoying issue. This bug has many implications for the efficient running of your Trusty Tahr desktop. If you work at Ubuntu, I am very perplexed as to why your team won't solve this. Many people have this issue, and your LTS, an otherwise fine release, is atrociously slow, unstable ...

OK So you broke X, will will have to re install the system You will need your live DVD/USB,or you have to make one. Boot the live medium and choose install Ubuntu If you see an option to upgrade Ubuntu 14.04 to 14.04 (or someting like this UPGRADE is the important word) (at the top) use this to re install If not, that's OK choose something else ...

OK I believe the exposed arguments are related to whether or not windows and there contents are displayed behind the screen saver (this will be relevant to certain screen savers that draw on the screen and the like). So it is in short if your desktop is exposed or not. This is a educated guess, the terminology used is strange I think. I do how ever ...

To build on gioele's answer, to preview custom keyboard layout, you can also use xkbcomp like this: setxkbmap ua -print | xkbcomp - - | xkbprint - - | ps2pdf - > ua.pdf ua being the desired keyboard layout. Inspect setxkbmap -print — it provides xkbcomp with geometry, symbols, keycodes, ...

First install the AMD driver if you have not, then ope the control center. I dont have a AMD handy but somewhere you will have an option like "save to X config file" If you dont mind using Terminal just type sudo amdconfig --initial This should make one at etc/x11/xorg.conf you can then use nano or Gedit or whatever to open it.

If you dropped to a root shell from the Ubuntu recovery mode, then the filesystem is mounted in read-only mode by default. You will probably need to re-mount with read-write permissions in order to allow X -configure to write the xorg.conf file: mount -o remount,rw / (note: there is no space between the remount and rw options - just a comma). Then try the ...

I had a similar problem: after unplugging or disabling external monitor, the image flickered and I could not do anything. I disabled texture compression in CompizConfig Settings Manager/OpenGL and it fixed my problem. Maybe it would fix yours too.

While I hate the "RTFM or go search Google" answer that was given, it really is best. Go to the manufacturer's site, go to their support section or the place where they offer drivers and software for download, and there will be a place to search for your model. Chances are, they have a link to a PDF manual there. Open it and search for the term Sync. ...

Sometimes it is quite easy: a "simple" keybinding problem. For any reason arrow down was linked to "show Desktop"; for those who struggle on a similar problem you maybe find the answer in https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Keybindings. At least it solved my problem.

xorg.conf is not found by default . you can boot into recovery mode and select Root Shell. run : X -configure Then: cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf Reboot and you can edit the new Xorg.conf.

All I understood was that all the problem originated in the fact that the so called xorg-server which was a replacement to nvidia driver was messing my system which led to low screen resolution and even after i reinstalled the nvidia driver, graphic functionality didn't return to its normal state. I finally upgraded ubuntu 12.04 to ubuntu 14.04, on which ...

This happens when you don't have video driver loaded. See the log file /var/log/Xorg.0.log, you will have the answer there what is the problem. Meanwhile you could try to use Xswat ppa: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-update && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

My case may not be similar to yours but I post my solution here hoping it helps other people. I ran: xrandr --verbose I was not able to change the mode to 1080p using xrandr "--mode 1920x1080 --rate 60" because it has two flavors, 1080p and 1080i, and 1080i is by default stupidly preferred.

I had an issue with my nvidia driver on my computer when I installed Ubuntu. Boot ubuntu and run just the terminal so that the display card doesn't have to do much. Alternatively you can press Ctrl + Alt + F1 to open the full terminal. Now, what you want to do is uninstall the nvidia drivers using sudo apt-get purge nvidia* Now, install packages. To do ...

Okay so I found it was ibus that was causing the conflict, and the way to disable it is to run (sudo) ibus-setup and disable the keybinding

The propably simplest way is to change the ownership of the startx binary (normally in /usr/bin/startx) in a way that only the owner (root) can execute that file. You can do this e.g. by entering sudo chmod 0744 /usr/bin/startx into a terminal.

For those of you having this problem with an Intel card, look at this fix: You can see whether you use an Intel card with the following command. If you see "intel_backlight", you probably have an Intel card. ls /sys/class/backlight/ If so, execute the following command: sudo touch /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf You may check first if that ...

You may still need to install the "bumblebee" package to manage the Optimus GPU properly, even if you don't use the NVidia side of it. I have a ThinkPad T410s with Optimus graphics that refuses to do anything properly despite having the BIOS configured to use the Intel GPU only, until I installed Bumblebee. Now it's happy.

Connecting from Ubuntu and other Unix-like systems with X11-based GUIs If I understand the situation correctly, you are connecting to a remote EC2 instance (perhaps a "cloud server"). You are probably using ssh. Installing an X server on the EC2 instance won't help, because you need this application's graphical interface to appear on your end, not on the ...

This is probably because you are missing a display server. Seems to be a common issue. You should try installing X or something similar. You can install X using sudo apt-get install xorg openbox That should fix your issue. For more on that, take a look here.

You could try installing the intel-linux-graphics-installer. I have personally used it with various sandybridge cards, it won't hurt to give it a try. If you don't have gdebi I recommend installing deb packages with gdebi to fix dependency issues that may arrise: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install gdebi now download the installer from ...

Also if it is too late for the question owner, I write this answer. I don't know if this is the right method, probably not, and I'm not an expert, but what I know is that this works for me.

In Ubuntu 14.04: Press Ctrl+Alt+F1 and then run: sudo service gdm stop or sudo service lightdm stop ... depending on your display manager. NOTE: To recover, use startx; Alternatively replace the "stop" with "start" in either of the above commands.

Answered by OP in comments. Seems like I messed up my compiz configuration when upgrading to 14.04. Thanks to user164089 and this post, I tried resetting my compiz settings and it works. Kudos noleti - I wouldn't have found that answer otherwise.

Many programs do not accept key strokes when they do not have the keyboard forcus - which certainly makes some sense. But you do not need to use "windowactivate", "windowfocus" works, and does not bring the window to front etc.: xdotool windowfocus 8392809 key p Also, you can simplify your command to one line by using the sleep command of xdotool xdotool ...

Ubuntu does not handle this very well yet - you can not have two monitors with drastically varying DPI and drag windows between them and have it work as it should. It is a limitation of Xorg and the widget toolkits. The problem is that they use a single DPI value, and then a window is sized in pixels, so if you have a 400 pixel wide window on your external ...
