Xubuntu desktop background picture does not stick/is not centered
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 22, 2008
Problem. Every single time when I restart my computer and log into XFCE4 session, my customized desktop background picture is covered with initial Xubuntu 8.04 default background picture in the left-top part of my desktop covering about 3/4 of the desktop. Curiously, there is no such a problem, when I just restart my X Window System (ctrl+alt+backspace).
When I open Xfce settings manager and look for the desktop picture source, it points to the custom desktop background picture like it should ( http://nagi.ee/photos/photo_sizes.ph...lbum_id=127405 ).
When I totally deleted the original Xubuntu 8.04 background picture from /usr/share/xfce4/backdrops the problem is still there, however, left-top 3/4 part of my desktop is then just covered with blue area ( http://nagi.ee/photos/photo_sizes.ph...lbum_id=127405 ).
I can clean up my custom desktop picture, when I point at it in the desktop settings menu and load it again. But doing that every single time when I start up my laptop is
[SOLVED] Script for cycling desktop background in gnome not working when ran as root
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 24, 2010
Hello people. I originally posted this problem in the Programming subforum, but got no replies so far. So I decided to post it here as well.
My problem is as follows. I run openSUSE 11.2 with GNOME 2.28 and I want my desktop background to automatically cycle randomly on a fixed interval. So I found this script (change-background.py), edited it to fit my needs, and put it in my home bin directory. The script works the way it should.
Logitech Cordless Desktop LX 710 does not work.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 27, 2009
I've just bought a new PC with a Logitech Cordless Desktop LX 710 keyboard and mouse. I read in several posts that it should work 'out of the box' on Ubuntu. Well, not in my case. I tested the keyboard on my Windows XP laptop and that works fine, so there is nothing wrong with the keyboard/mouse.
I am running Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop 64 bit. My wired keyboard and mouse, also connected through USB are working fine. Can anyone help me troubleshooting?
I've goty some experience with Fedora headless linux server installation, but all desktop and Ubuntu distro features are new to me.

mplayer: picture does not scale
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 7, 2006
I have installed mplayer. A prebuilt package to ubuntu. I then installed the codecs manually. But when playing a video, the picture does not scale. It is in a little box (most likely the video resolution). If I play with fullscreen-option it is the same. Anyone know what this is about?
Cannot burn xubuntu 12.10b2 (does not fit on CD)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 29, 2012
I just tried to burn xubuntu-12.10-beta2-desktop-i386.iso but xfburn refuses, saying it's too big to fit on the disk. Is there a problem with xfburn? Do I need to (and will it work if I) burn to a DVD instead, and install from the DVD?
"Stuck Pixels" only on xubuntu desktop, not windows laptop
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 23, 2013
The backlight went out on my old monitor, so I recently bought a new one (Samsung S20B350H). When it showed up, it appeared to have upwards of 100 stuck pixels (red and green, mostly) scattered about the screen. I RMA'd the monitor, but when the new one showed up, it acted the same way. I have tested the monitor on my husband's Windows 7 laptop, and the monitor is fine. The apparent stuck pixels only appear on my desktop, and they show up in a screenshot. I'm stumped on how to fix this, given that the previous monitor did not display the same behavior before it died, but since it's dead, I don't have a spare monitor, unless you count the TV, which is not conveniently located to my large steel case.
For what it's worth, the graphics card is an NVidia 7900GS, bought when they were brand spanking new. I've also swapped out cords, and no help there.
Ubuntu 12.10 Desktop does not show when I install nvidia drivers
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 18, 2012
Desktop does not shows after I installed nvidia experimental drivers. I tried nvidia simple proprietary drivers, and they did not work either.
Here is how it looks. This is not cropped or any thing. This is how it looks, after the installation of the drivers the desktop resolution decreased from 1440X900 to 1024X768
The desktop only shows desh and panels when I use the open source drivers.
Is there any way to fix this so I can get better performance??
Thank you in advance.
Debian Squeeze does not start into graphic desktop
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 24, 2012
I reinstalled my Squeeze with debian-6.0.5-i386-CD-1 in a dual boot with Linux Mint 11. GRUB installed well, the Mint installation remained unchanged and starts perfectly. However, if I try to start Squeeze, it goes into the terminal mode. I don't have an idea how to start into the GUI. At installation time, I checked the box for the graphic desktop, and I also installed it with 'tasksel' from the terminal prompt.
Coming from M$ Window$, I mainly rely on GUIs, I'm not very familiar with terminal work. So, in this sense I'm a Newbie and thankful for any help.
Xubuntu 12.10 does not save screen brightness
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 24, 2013
my Xubuntu does not save the setup of the screen brightness.
I already check on Internet for such problem.
I did the following actions but it does not work at all.
In file /etc/acpi/save-brightness.sh I put the following :
cat /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness > /etc/acpi/brightness
sudo chmod +x /etc/acpi/save-brightness.sh
sudo ln -s ../acpi/save-brightness.sh K99-save-brightness
Do same in the /etc/rc6.d directory
cat /etc/acpi/brightness > /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness
