16  Assistance / Software / How to Install Firefox 10 [SOLVED] on: March 04, 2012, 22:44:45 PM
I'm trying to install Firefox 10, but when I type: sudo pisi install firefox, I get:

The following package(s) are already installed and are not going to be installed again:
Firefox
No packages to install.

I currently have version 6.0.2

How can I get the latest version of Firefox?

I'm currently looking at ArchLinux, which has extensive coverage of dual monitor setups and multi screen resolutions. My project for the coming week!

I'll put the (hopefully) working xorg.conf here when it's ready....

Well you got that far , did the original ( knoppix generated ) xorg.conf get used at all ( your current one seems a little sparse )

ILooks reasonable. I hear Intel chipsets can be a problem, so perhaps you should switch to your add - on  cards.
and do it all again ( I hear the groan now ) : )

I tried that but one montor cut out and back in every few seconds and the other monitor remained blank.

Looking at other Linux distros that are more up to date when it comes to configuring monitor resolutions.

Nothings changed but at least the thing still loads!

Lots of tweaking to be done.

Before I do anything else, what's the procedure for restoring the original setting if I happen to make a mess of things?
That's very easy.
Remove the inserted /etx/X11/xorg.conf from Pardus and restart.
That's all that needs to be done Grin

I removed my dual-VGA card to keep things basic but when I found the xorg.conf, it says

xorg.conf: Error removing file: Permission denied
22  General / Wish list / Re: More Screen Resolutions Needed on: January 12, 2012, 11:16:58 AM
Replace

in the address bar at the top .

OK I see it.

It's at /etc/X11 Wink

I'm looking at file manager and under KNOPPIX_FS and I can't get to /etc/X11 without the KNOPPIX bit.

Finally got Knoppix working.

Can't seem to find xorg.conf when looking at /KNOPPIX/etc/X11

25  Assistance / Configuring Pardus / Re: Increasing Screen Resolution on: January 11, 2012, 15:53:11 PM
Hello Lisa,

I'm actually moving between two machines!!

One is an old Advent Laptop - The company has its main offices in the UK

http://www.adventcomputers.co.uk/

The computer's specs are:

http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/advent/laptop/8115.htm

My new, desktop, pc is using this system board:

http://uk.msi.com/product/mb/G41M-P28.html

The desktop pc runs Windows Vista until I can get this monitor thing up and running. I use a spare hard disk that has Pardus installed where I can put to the test any help to get more screen resolutions.

I also have an Nvidia dual VGA card which will need configuring, but that's for later.....

Currently trying to get Knoppix running on CD, DVD or USB drive but the CDs/DVDs give 'burn/reading errors' on both machines and the USB version doesn't even get recognised. I'll try again on my sister's brand new Windows 7 laptop later. Surely nothing will go wrong with Windows!?!?!?!?

In my Ubuntu days I had an old Dell Dimension 4700 and yes, Ubuntu users also have the same issues with the lack of available screen resolutions.
26  General / Wish list / Re: More Screen Resolutions Needed on: January 10, 2012, 23:32:18 PM
Tried pasting the second xorg.conf but it hung the machine! Will try the other one next.

Having major problems finding a version of Knoppix that'll work. Downloaded both DVD and CD versions and put them onto a usb drive and nothing happened. USB drive in perfect working order.

This is going to take some time!
27  General / Wish list / Re: More Screen Resolutions Needed on: January 10, 2012, 01:37:36 AM
I'm currently having issues with choosing a higher resolution than the ones I've been given at install of Pardus. Same issues with Ubuntu.

Interesting discussion on the ubuntu forum you had , I'll have to play xrandx myself.
 May I see a copy of your systems generated xorg.conf ?

I'm doing a fresh install of Pardus but here are copies of suggested xorg.conf files:

Videocard? Monitor?

where this information

System board: http://uk.msi.com/product/mb/G41M-P28.html

- Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (IntelĀ® GMA X4500)

Monitor: CTX LCD monitor. Model S961A: http://www.lcdnfo.com/html/CTX_S961A-lcd-monitor.html

29  General / Wish list / Re: More Screen Resolutions Needed on: January 09, 2012, 19:57:41 PM

 I also had the same problem as you ,MusicLover, but no more.
Now I can have resolutions from 320x240 up to 1600x1200.
But try as I could , I could not get Pardus to generate a xorg.conf , that would work at native monitor resolutions and frequecies.
 So I cheated , and booted with knoppix ( ver 6.4.4 ) on the SAME computer, mounted the hard drive and copied the virtual xorg.conf to the "real" hard drive.
Then did small editing to select the HorizonalSync and VRefresh frequencis, ( I selected the middle ground, a xouple of other small options and when it proved to work , I THEN used the propriety chipset software (nvidia in my case ) to finalize the setup.
For me this is a win.
I'll continue with this setup and let you know if there are any further developements.

Anglo

Sounds interesting. I'll keep watching here and look into this 'knoppix'.....

What struck me is that both are equipped with the Intel(R) 945GM video chip.

And both report:
Output VGA1 disconnected
Output LVDS1 connected

This LVDS is normally mentioned in a note(net)book and is a digital interface.

I've added as much info as I can to Bugzilla.
http://bugs.pardus.org.tr/show_bug.cgi?id=19619

Thankfully I have a spare pc and some spare hard disks. Temporarily back to using Windows Vista!
