[SOLVED] GIMP not displaying splash screen
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 24, 2015
I was wondering if anyone could help me with this problem. I want The GIMP to show a splash screen when I launch it, which it's supposed to do automatically, but for some reason mine doesn't.
When I do gimp --verbose, I get the following messages:
[SOLVED] Screen goes black on startup
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 19, 2011
Sorry folks for starting up another black screen thread.
HP laptop with Intel graphics, running Slackware current with a 188.8.131.52-smp kernel. Booting with the "nomodeset" kernel parm works but X gets stuck with a 1024x768 resolution. When booting without, the screen goes black after a few pages scroll by, just at the point where the console switches to a higher resolution.
Changing to a different console didn't help, so I blindly log on and type startx, and the screen comes back to life with KDE running at the higher 1366x768 resolution, I try a few apps, the webcam, suspend to RAM, resume, and everything is now working flawlessly so it doesn't look like an X issue.
At this point I can change to another console (or exit KDE altogether) and the screen is back on at the higher resolution. Looking at the X log and some dmesg output makes it seem that starting X possibly replaces, reloads or unloads a driver?
If this is the case, how can I prevent the conflicting driver from

[SOLVED] Screen Resolution in Ubuntu 11.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 4, 2011
With Windows 7, I can set my screen resolution to 1280x720, but how do I do this in Ubuntu 11.04? Under "Monitor Preferences" the only 16:9 setting in the drop-down window is 848 x 480, which makes everything on the screen much too large. The other three settings in the drop-down box are all 4:3. One of them is a higher resolution (1024 x 768) but since it's 4:3, everything is stretched sideways on my monitor.
[SOLVED] Different startup programs for gnome vs. kde?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 16, 2008
I'm currently running gnome and I want to switch to KDE, but I don't want to ruin my gnome settings and everything. I just installed KDE, and now I have all kinds of different things in my sessions box that weren't there before. Is there any way to make the startups for gnome and KDE different from each other?
[SOLVED] using grub to load opensuse from usb drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 12, 2013
i have a netbook with no cd drive and am trying to reload opensuse 11.4 for my son. it was dual boot with xp and suse, but the xp crashed and won't let me load suse, so he wants just suse. the first problem i ran into was when i hooked up the external drive to the usb and removed the hard drive from the boot order, it kept saying operating system not found. i have a flash drive with acronis that i use at work and it uses grub to run acronis from an iso. i loaded the suse iso and added an entry into the menu.lst. it came up on the choices to load, but gave me an error saying i need to add "--head=0" to make it work (i didn't write down the entire message). i added it, probably in the wrong place, my linux is rusty after using only windows at work for so long. now i get the error message "error 11: unrecognized device string, or you omitted the required DEVICE part which should load the filename". this is what the menu.lst looks like:
[SOLVED] Remote Desktop Error: Failed to Load Session Ubuntu2d
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 13, 2013
Okay so I am a noob to linux but not PCs in general so I'll get to the point here. I'm trying to connect remote desktop from a windows PC to a server (yes I noticed if you mention ms or windows you should post in general, but I'm not allowed since this is my first post). So, first here are the specs:
Dell AMD E-450 APU with Radeon HD Graphics (1.65 GHz)
4 GB RAM
Windows 7 (64-bit)
Internet: Cable modem 15mbps/2.5mbps
OVH Kimsufi Intel Atom D425 1.8 GHz (512k cache)
Ubuntu Desktop 12.04 "Precise Pangolin" LTS + x2go (64-bit)
Internet: 100mbps/100mbps dedicated line
So I have been able to set the server up and I have played with it a little bit and gotten more comfortable with the commands, but now I tried to connect remote desktop and I get this:
So I tried to do a little research and my guess was gdm wasn't running. So I installed it and started the service okay, but I keep getting that same mes
[SOLVED] Ubuntu stuck at black login screen; problem with .X11unix file
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 1, 2012
I have an Acer Aspire One with the latest version of Ubuntu installed with the GNOME UI. Everything has been running fine on the computer until recently, when I hit a snag that I can't solve by myself.
I'm not sure what might have caused the error, other than a possible update glitch from Update Manager, as that is the last thing I did before I shut down the laptop when it was working last. The updates installed fine, but they might have bored the system somehow.
One day, out of the blue, I turned on my laptop and I was confronted with the black terminal login screen. After entering my credentials, I tried the "startx" command, but I received the following error, "/usr/.X11-unix has 7111 bad permissions," or something like that.
So I searched around online, and there were a few suggestions to use "chmod -7111 /usr/.X11-unix". So I used that, and then ran "startx" and I was able to boot into the GUI without a problem.
[SOLVED] Disable touch screen (ntrig) on Ubuntu 10.04
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 11, 2010
I have a HP tx2 touchsmart laptop and I have installed 32 bit version of Ubuntu 10.04 on it. (Kernel 2.6.32-22)
The touchscreen and the digitizer pen work out of the box, however, the problem is that it disables the touchpad and forces me to use the Digitizer Pen (stylus) which is very annoying.
I have already searched for ways to disable touchscreen without much success, most of the posts discuss enabling it rather than disabling it.The file /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist and I have removed the wacom drivers:
sudo apt-get purge wacom-tools xserver-xorg-input-wacom
I believe that ntrig is using some other drivers/packages which may need to be removed.
Ideally, I'd like to enable both Touch Screen and the Touch pad. But I am willing to give up touch screen functionality in favor of the touchpad. Please help or point me in the right direction.
PS: I do not come here often and I might have posted it in the wrong section. Please move the thread or xpost to the appropr
[SOLVED] Black screen after booting Ubuntu 11.10 from USB
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 19, 2012
I'm trying to install ubuntu 11.10 x64 onto my laptop and replace windows. I saved the ubuntu 11.10 DVD iso to my fat32 USB stick and ran the Universal USB installer. I resarted my computer and hit esc then F9 to access the boot menu. From there I was able to boot from my USB. Next, a black menu screen with grey font appeared.
It had 5 or 6 different options to select from, including: Run ubuntu from usb; install ubuntu to hard disk; advanced options; and help. The first two options gave me the same issue. Everything appeared to be fine for about 5 seconds but after many strings of code had appeared on the screen, it flashed once and went completely black. However, I was surprised to hear "chimes" or something (seemingly implying some measure of success) only moments after the screen had gone black. Each time I was forced to restart because I had no idea what was going on with the screen black and all.
Here are my specs:
2.5GHz AMD Dual-Core A4-3305M Accelerated, 6GB
