Re: rdesktop lags horribly after connecting to remote PC, and sound is lagging too

Okay, I found an alternative: freerdp. Everything works as it should. Sound works fine and the connection isn't slower than expected. :)

Re: How do you remember bits of sudo code?

A lot of is what I would describe as "muscle memory". There are some commands that I can never get right without looking them up, or at least failing them once and get them right the second time. For example I can never remember if it's "xstart" or "startx". Other commands I even use in the windows ...

[SOLVED] rdesktop lags horribly after connecting to remote PC, and sound is lagging too

Hi, I recently set up a Windows PC (did he say Jehova? :shock: ) and wanted to connect to it via rdesktop. The connection works, but the screen is lagging horribly. If I open a browser on the remote PC it takes over a minute until the background picture of the quick launch page is fully loaded. Othe...

Re: Dual screen doesn't work in MATE after restart

Just so I don't follow in the footsteps of DenverCoder9 , here's a short follow up: After I connected one screen to the PC via VGA and the other one via DisplayPort I haven't had any trouble with my dual screen setup. It seems that MATE is kind of picky if you connect one screen via HDMI and the oth...

Re: Dual screen doesn't work in MATE after restart

A first test using arandr was successful, both screens worked as they should after a restart. Thanks!

EDIT: However, a second restart showed the same problem as before. The second screen is blank until I click "Apply" in Display Settings. :(

[SOLVED] Dual screen doesn't work in MATE after restart

Hi, I recently switched to MATE desktop and everything works fine so far. Everything except for the dual screen setup after each start. The second screen shows nothing, but it doesn't complain about recieving no signal. The peculiar thing is that it shows the mouse cursor, but when I try to move any...

Re: Placing desktop items on right screen in Dual Screen setup

I just read your post on stackexchange ... apparently you've installed two, if not three, DEs on the same machine. Not good. It'll bugger up your system eventually and the best fix is to do a clean reinstall with just one DE. Yeah, I'm just testing stuff out. I've since uninstalled Mate and Cinnamo...

Placing desktop items on right screen in Dual Screen setup

I have a dual screen setup which works fine, but I cannot put desktop icons on the second monitor. My left screen is configured to be the main screen, but it doesn't really matter, even if I configure the right screen to be the main screen I cannot place any icons there. They always go back to their...
