This is a fresh install of 20.04 on a Dell Inspiron 3000.

The system will detect an external headset and hdmi as an output/input, however, it will not detect the internal speakers/mic.

#StackBounty: #drivers #touchpad #synaptics #evdev How can I get absolute touchpad coordinates

Bounty: 200

From what I understand, earlier versions of the Synaptic driver in Ubuntu had an ‘absolute mode’ for the trackpad which allowed the user to access absolute coordinates as well as relative coordinates. However, Synaptic decided to remove it(not sure why) and its no longer available. Is there any way to access the absolute mode in Ubuntu 20.04 LTS? I’d like to be able to get these coordinates in a C/C++ program but open to any other solutions (Rust, shell script, whatever works). I’ve come across similar posts but I’m still unable to find a satisfactory solution. Most recommend the evtest driver which does sport absolute mode but lacks other features(2 finger scrolling, etc.). I’m thinking reverting back to an older version of the Synaptic driver might help but wanted to know what I’d be missing out on. I mean, are there any important features in the more recent Synaptic driver that the old one with absolute mode doesn’t?

Edit:
I did a bit more digging and came across this page –> http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/bionic/man1/python-evdev.1.html

It shows how to use a Python library, evdev, and how to use it to access system input events. Following the examples, I set it to watch my trackpad events and upon moving my finger I got a whole wall of information which unfortunately, I didn’t understand. I did notice terms like ABS_X, ABS_Y but couldn’t make anything of it. Regardless, it appears that I can access a lot of trackpad information through this library including something to do with absolute coordinates. How do I use this information? Can anyone show me how to write a simple Python function using evdev

def foo():
    ...
    return (x,y)

where (x,y) represents my finger postion on the trackpad?

Edit 2: Sample output of evdev monitoring my trackpad.
Can any of this be used to get absolute coordinates?

Since I have make the new Ubuntu update, I have a black screen when I start my HP laptop (11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-1165G7 @ 2.80GHz × 8 ) with a Intel iRIS xe GPU.

The only solution that I have find until now to work with my laptop is to put the "nomodeset" command in the grub but with this option, linux don’t used the Intel vendor driver and the driver that I can see in my config is a "llvmpipe (LLVM 12.0.0, 256 bits)"

I have reinstall my laptop one time with Secure Boot and one time without but I have always the same issue. I have try other solution like the "oibaf" drivers but always the same issue.

#StackBounty: #x11 #drivers #graphics #alpine-linux Get an accellerated X11 driver for "XGI Z7" GPU under Alpine Linux v3.14?

Bounty: 100

I am trying to get a modern Linux up and running on an elderly PC with a Vortex86DX CPU (i586) and a built-in GPU which is reported in dmesg as

[   21.246156] Console: switching to colour frame buffer device 100x37

[   21.257017] sisfb: Copyright (C) 2001-2005 Thomas Winischhofer

To my understanding this GPU was supported by the SIS module, but when trying to run startx the XGI driver is attempted, fails, and then the fbdev driver is used:

[  2994.516] (==) Matched xgi as autoconfigured driver 0

[  2994.532] (EE) Failed to load module "xgi" (module does not exist, 0)

The fbdev driver does its job but is rather slow. The VideoDriverFaq at https://wiki.freedesktop.org/xorg/VideoDriverFAQ/ mentions that the sis driver should be used but it is clearly not properly autodetected. The sis module is available in a package and installed on the system

How should I approach this?

Bounty: 50

I have a canon Pixma MG2500 series 2570 printer that is 3 years old, and I wanted to test if it would work before scrapping it.
To day I installed the drivers from this Canon official website
everything worked fine(upto installation) but then I tried to scan something and then it displayed the following message:

enter image description here

I tried restarting the computer, reinstalling the drivers, and even a new usb cable.

I think what the problem is that maybe some windows process is using it in the background for my "convenience" and that’s whats preventing the software from using.

Sometimes it even gives the "folder access denied" so I just allowed all the exe’s related to canon to my files and folders.

note: it does not have ink, I just want to use it as a scanner.
I also downloaded the Windows Scan app to see if it help, but no it didn’t.

I would really appreciate it if anyone helped me. thanks.

I went with nvidia-driver-460. Tried rebooting after that and still booted up into the same blank screen. I tried running nvidia-smi and then something happened to the display. It showed multiple purple glitches across the screen and returned No devices were found
