Hi there,

Is anyone having problems with Suspend to Disk? It's suddenly stopped working for me...


Re: Problems with Suspend to Disk

What problems exactly?

-freeze while suspending or

-freeze on wake up

-doesn't do anything if you press the suspend key combination

My Keyboard Suspend shortcuts stop working if I don't login with gnome, because the acpi_fakekey script launched doesn't work outside of gnome.

pmi action sleep 


pmi action hibernate

should work

Problems with ALt-Gr

My Alt-Gr key doesn't work in Beryl. I think it's a problem with loading the right keymap.

my solution is a small workaround: loading your preferred keymap with gnome, by adding the following script (save in /usr/bin/restorekeymap) to gnome startup programs

setxkbmap -model pc105 -layout de -variant nodeadkeys
#if you use the .Xmodmap file for other stuff too uncomment the following line
#xmodmap .Xmodmap

Replace keymap model, layout and variant with the one you prefer.

Please let me know if there's a better Solution

Video in Beryl

anyone else suffering under extremely slow video in Beryl? All Video players seem to require much more resources in Beryl. Anyone else experiencing the same Problem?

Kaffeine(Xine) slows down the whole system (on my 1.7GHz Banias) and sometimes kaffeine freezes. Mplayer works better, but still keeps the cpu usage on ~90% on fullscreen.

Doing something with tpb OSD makes it even worse. Changing volume in many cases permanently freezes kaffeine, and results in temporary 1fps in mplayer.

I tried all available Video output Plugins (xv, opengl,...) without noticing a difference.
