playing video on the desktop background

Posted 06-01-2011 at 08:29 AM by neonsignal

The '-rootwin' flag can be used with mplayer to play moving images on the desktop background.

Code:
mplayer -rootwin -nosound -loop 0 -vf scale=width video.avi
Some desktop environments will need to have the normal background management disabled.

domain name resolution of local network names in NT domains

Posted 05-31-2011 at 10:51 PM by neonsignal
Updated 05-31-2011 at 10:52 PM by neonsignal

When operating on a local network that largely has Windows machines, resolving local names enables the use of machine names rather than ip addresses. Names can be hardwired into /etc/hosts; alternatively, they can be gathered from the NT domain using winbind:
Code:
apt-get install winbind
Then edit /etc/nsswitch.conf, and add 'wins' to the 'hosts' line.

checking 3D acceleration of graphics

Posted 05-31-2011 at 08:45 AM by neonsignal
Updated 05-31-2011 at 08:47 AM by neonsignal

To check whether 3D acceleration is supported by the current graphics drivers, use glxinfo:
Code:
apt-get install mesa-utils
glxinfo
Where acceleration is working, the 'direct rendering' parameter will have the value 'Yes', followed by details about which features are supported.
