It just randomly happens. Sometimes a program worked with Xlaunch fine and then the next time, boom what I describe above happens or the machine locks up.

Here's another problem. When I launch an application in XLaunch when I'm using XGl/Compiz/cgwd, sometimes it just shows for 3 or 4 seconds and then throws me back to KDM and then I end up logging into another KDE session, manually killing that one and then going to the original. Is there a way around this. This doesn't happen if I use Xlaunch in Xorg.


Did you look at my post above? I already mentioned this. It must be a problem with the recent drivers or xorg updates.

NEW! :lol: version=20060911
    a little fix, so that launching specific programs for a given application now correctly works. (eg, if you use xlaunch to launch blender, there are chances that you also like to start a window manager on this display.


          =====================================

Is it possible to set the resolution of the new xserver with this script? For example, set it to 800x600 at 16 when I launch DiabloII.


It is possible, I can see two ways for doing it
  • the brutal way:
    your xorg.conf must be already configured to support this resolution, ie when you're in X type xrandr -q, here is what I get:
    xrandr -q:
     SZ:    Pixels          Physical       Refresh
    *0   1280 x 1024   ( 382mm x 313mm )  *75 
     1   1024 x 768    ( 382mm x 313mm )   75 
    Current rotation - normal
    Current reflection - none
    Rotations possible - normal
    Reflections possible - none
    so I want to use the 1024 x 768 resolution, I need to issue xrandr -s 1 just after the Xserver is launch (ie just after the xinit line in the script (do it the same way as described in :
    III - The xlaunch script
      --> b) HowTo use it -The new way - The link trick
        --> * Windowed application

    I won't say anything more for this method, since I don't really like it, but it works..


  • And the prefered way:
    For that you'd need (as root) a copy of your existing xorg.conf,
    Code:
    cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg-diablo.conf
    (name it whatever you feel like!)
    Then edit this file, and delete the resolution you don't need:
    e.g.:
    replace:

    Section "Screen"
            Identifier "Screen0"
            Device     "Card0"
            Monitor    "Monitor0"
            SubSection "Display"
                    Viewport   0 0
                    Depth     24
                    Modes   "1280x1024" "1024x768"
            EndSubSection
    EndSection
    with:
    Section "Screen"
            Identifier "Screen0"
            Device     "Card0"
            Monitor    "Monitor0"
            SubSection "Display"
                    Viewport   0 0
                    Depth     24
                    Modes   "1024x768"
            EndSubSection
    EndSection
    (if I want to have 1024x768. Use your settings instead!)

    Now, you have your second xorg config ready, time to tell xlaunch to use it, I don't know how yourun DiabloII, I'll assume you have a diabloII command :

    In the xlaunch script, in the case loop: (about line 363) add the diabloII case,

    eg:
    ---insert what 's in bold--- wrote:
    case "${FULL_PROG_NAME##*/}" in
      xlaunch)
        echo "The program can't call itself. Exiting!"
        # Well, actually it can, but it will exit later, so exiting now..
        exit 2;;

      diabloII)
        Xserverargs="-config xorg-diablo.conf $Xserverargs"
        echo "Starting ${FULL_PROG_NAME} on DISPLAY $DISPLAY_TO_USE"
        xinit "${FULL_PROG_NAME}" $* -- $Xserver :$DISPLAY_TO_USE $Xserverargs &>/dev/null &


      *)
        echo "Starting ${FULL_PROG_NAME} on DISPLAY $DISPLAY_TO_USE"
        xinit "${FULL_PROG_NAME}" $* -- $Xserver :$DISPLAY_TO_USE $Xserverargs &>/dev/null &
        ;;

    esac


    Now, when you'll run xlaunch diabloII, or xdiabloII if you've created the link, that'll launch the game with the wanted resolution.



EDIT: note, than in the same way as we redefined the Xserverargs variable for daibloII, it's also possible de re-define almost what you want(XSET_ARGS, userxbindkeysrc, Xresources and so on..)

As an exemple, here is what I use for XSET_ARGS

I have a default
Code:
XSET_ARGS="m 7/10 1"
which is uncommented, in the 'configuration' part of the script, then in the case loop, here is what I added
Code:
    quake3*|et|warsow)
        XSET_ARGS="m 0 0"
        echo "Starting ${FULL_PROG_NAME} on DISPLAY $DISPLAY_TO_USE"
        xinit "${FULL_PROG_NAME}" $* -- $Xserver :$DISPLAY_TO_USE $Xserverargs &>/dev/null &
        ;;


This way I have no acceleration for theses games (quake3, quake3-osp, quake3-cpma..., et, warsow ), and I still have XSET_ARGS="m 7/10 1" when I'm doing anything else than these games.

I dont really read all the 5 pages of this post. I only want to say that im running Xgl, and im able to run apps in 3d mode, say like: googleearth, flightgear, xmoto, the screensaver with GL preffix, this last one hung first and I made some changes to the arguments for Xgl, and I use, only for testing, a game in cedega Dream match tennis.

I have an nvidia card, and the arguments i've passed to Xgl are the same poste in the xgl gentoo wiki

Well, thats all.

Adios

I'm not sure I understood everything:

You're trying to tell you don't need xlaunch right? (except for your 'Dream match tennis' game). Xgl is getting better and better, and that's a good point.

Actually xlaunch is not just for XGL user. I personnally don't use xgl, but use xlaunch, why? because, I can switch easily between a game and my desktop, because, I can make my multimedia keys working inside a full screen game, because, I can launch a given game in a xserver with a lower resolution, or depth (ok, I don't use this one..), and so forth and so on (other reasons are given in the first post)

First off thanks to truc for writing the script. Also thanks to CoffeeBuzz for emplimenting in to the coffee overlay.

I decided to emerge the xlauch script threw portage since I am xgl-coffee overlay user. The script works fine. I was just wondering if there was a way to get lets say quake 3 to run in a windowed mode. I read the post about the script but since I got it through portage it seems like its setup a little differently. Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks for the help.

So you don't have the latest version, but that shouldn't be a problem (a few days ago, I pm'd CoffeeBuz so that he put the latest version, but he had some problem with his computer..)

This shouldn't be a problem anyway.

You want quake3 to run in window mode so that you have your 'fun keys' working right?

You just have to follow the part
    III - The xlaunch script
      c) Making your multimedia keys working
In the first post.

In short, start the game(with xlaunch if you're using the XPLAYER feature, with or without xlaunch otherwise (if you don't know, then you're not using it)then set Fullscreen to Off, then clic Accept , you're now in window mode, you can now exit the game, and next time you'll play quake3 it will be in window mode.


Note: are you using quake3-bin, or quake3 (from source) :?:

There is sthg you need to know, if you're using quake3 from source, there is a bug with window mode and brightness, I've reported it here:When Fullscreen is off, Brightness has no effect.
Here is an easy work around:
Once the quake3 game based is launch (in window mode) just type:
ALT+ENTER
it will make it fullscreen, then again
ALT+ENTER
To have window mode again. This way, brightness now works, and so does xbindkeys :)





For Those who are using the XPLAYER feature and who use XQF, I've also noticed a bug with the working directory, I've made a patch , you can find it on gentoo bugzilla(here ), but also here, but this seems hard to understand why would I need to correct this bug, and there are not enough gentoo-dev to take care of it.. So if you don't want to wait until it's added 'officially', use the ebuild provided

It's me again :P

Just tried the latest version of your script but now it totally ignores the -p (--path) function

It always says ... ( and yes i sure have rights to execute it 8O )
Quote:

Error: can't find ut2004-bin-linux-amd64:
- Is it in you PATH?
or
- Do you have enough right to execute it?


And I also noticed the bug that my X Server crashes when using your script - just when I updated to the latest NVidia drivers ... so it has something to do with a change inside the drivers - now the thing is, need to find a workaround because I don't think nvidia will fix anything!?

Do you know now the --path is no longer needed? (Normally :P ) you can run either xlaunch program or xlaunch /path/to/program or even xlaunch relative/path/to/program (but xlaunch --path path/to/prog should still work!)

I suppose here you're trying to run
Code:
xlaunch ut2004-bin-linux-amd64
, but if I refer to your previous posts,
ut2004-bin-linux-amd64 is in /home/blacktiger/games/ut2004/System and I don't think you put this directory in your PATH, so here is what you can do
  • run the game with xlaunch ~/games/ut2004/System/ut2004-bin-linux-amd64
  • create a symlink with :

      xlaunch --addlink /home/blacktiger/games/ut2004/System/ut2004-bin-linux-amd64
      or

      xlaunch --addlink path/to/writable/directory /home/blacktiger/games/ut2004/System/ut2004-bin-linux-amd64 if you don't have write permission on the directory where xlaunch is stored (path/to/writable/directory must appear in your PATH)

    then chose the name you want for that symlink, e.g. ut, then to run the game, just run xut

Actually I also noticed that, I've made some tests, and it appears that it's the new xorg-7.1 fault (and not nvidia drivers) , It was *really* annoying!, (for example, when I play frozenthrone, going back to my desktop (CTRL-ALT-F7) will kill one of the wine process.

So, my work around is to mask the new xorg, here is a part of my packages.mask concerning this issue:
Code:
...
>=x11-base/xorg-server-1.1.0
=x11-base/xorg-x11-7.1
=x11-drivers/xf86-input-evdev-1.1.2-r1
=x11-drivers/xf86-input-keyboard-1.1.0
>=x11-drivers/xf86-input-mouse-1.1.0
=x11-drivers/xf86-video-nv-1.1.2
...

As always thanks for your fast and competent help :P

It was my mistake with the "xlaunch -p ut2004-bin-linux-amd64" Command. I used the command when I was in the System directory of ut2004, but well just then it tries to find the path ... my fault ... ""xlaunch -p ./ut2004-bin-linux-amd64" for example works (when already in the dir ^^")

But finally made that tiny symlink xut :o Works great, I tried switching between my Desktops (CTRL+Alt+FX) many times but for this time no crash o_O" This is really amusingly ... it works one time without a single problem, but then problems occur 8O Anyway ... I want to keep my XOrg 7.1 ;)

Thanks

Truc.. Thanks for the info. I will keep an eye out for updates in portage for the script. Thanks for the quake3 tips as well. Right now I am just running the demo, just something to pass the time when I am getting ticked off at something. Now I just have to try and use wine to get some of my other games working. I wish Americas Army had not gotten rid of linux support but ohh well.

Hi,

seems that I somehow was right thinking that the NVidia driver is crashing X when switching between the servers :?

Some days ago the Nvidia Beta Driver 1.0-9625 was released and since then the crashing problem is gone :D

Test it for yourself and report your experiences here ;)

Thanks for the info, I suspected that but wasnt sure. Nice to hear they fixed it. I noticed that my server crashes even if I go to a console.

Hey, using the script on several machines and it works great. One thing though, when I switch VTs from a Wine game, and come back, I get the Big Ugly X cursor in the center of the screen with no way to remove it. Everything else works great, game runs fine, but the cursor sticks. Is this a Wine issue I need to deal with or any ideas hot to remove it? Thanks for the script.

I remember having this issue a long time ago, I don't really remember if I did sthg to fix it, or not.

which wine version are you using?
in winecfg, did you disable "allow the window manager to control de window" ?

Yep. It's a Wine deal, native Quake 3 in xlaunch doesn't do it, but does if I wine quake3.exe .

PostPosted: Sun Oct 08, 2006 1:56 am    Post subject: xlaunch works partially Reply with quote

Hi, I use Xgl and I have to say xlaunch is a great script :D. My problem is when I run xlaunch in console (with xdm stoped) it works great. When I run xlaunch inside a Xgl (call from xterm window) XGL shuts down and is restarted (restarted by xdm script of course) and nothing else happens.
If (with xdm runing ) I press ctrl + alt + f1 and switch to console mode and run xlaunch from console, my computer locks and I have to reboot.
I have an ATI radeon 9600 pro video card, latest version of xlaunch for this date and I did not read nothing like this in this forum (I did not read all five pages)....

Any help will be welcome, thanks.

hi, some ATI users have problem running two Xserver, so my question is, are you one of them?

I mean, can you do this ( from the console, no X server running yet ) :
    xlaunch xterm
    # it should start an Xserver, then inside the xterm, run
    xlaunch term

If it's working, (two Xservers running at the same time, and you can switch between them with ctrl-alt-FX ) then xe should be able to get the script working correctly otherwise, you can still follow this link

If I shutdown Xgl I can run xlaunch twice as you said. I tried and it worked. It fails if I try to run xlaunch with Xgl running.

it "worked" means you can switch between the two display with ctrl-alt-f7 and ctrl-alt-f8 right?

Are you using gentoo? can you post the result of ls -l /usr/bin/X*. Can you also try when you're in xgl :
in xterm:
    * First post the result of ps aux (on this thread, or pm me)
    * try xinit -- :1 , does it crash your xgl? if so, pastbin /var/log/xorg.1.log, now try DISPLAY="" xinit -- :1 does it work?

we need something, we don't have any log from you, no nothing :?

Yes, I can switch between desktops.

I am using gentoo, I'd like to point out I use xgl and use DISPLAY=0 with XGL, but I did all tests with "xinit -- :1", and all tests crashed the whole computer.
Here is the output:

Does anybody else receive the following, or am I the only lucky one?
Code:
$ xlaunch
/home/scripts/xlaunch: 111: Syntax error: Bad substitution

The script, xlaunch, is in /home/scripts, which is in my path. I am the owner of the file (user and group). xlaunch version is 20060913.

However... I am running Ubuntu (Edgy) w/bash 3.1-5ubuntu3. I wasn't able to find anything useful in the ubuntuforums, so I figured I'd come back to the source, and arguably the most helpful forums on the 'net.

I don't know which version bash 3.1-5ubuntu3 exactly is, but I'm running bash-3.1_p17 here and it's ok, it's probably due to a bad copy&pasting:?::
try to download the script again:
Code:
wget http://fatimademe.free.fr/truc/xlaunch -O /home/scripts/xlaunch


btw, line 111 is
Code:
 if [ "${arg/\/}" != "${arg}" ]; then

this test should not fail:
Code:
$ TRY=/home
$ echo ${TRY/\/}
home


hope that helps:/

Tried that. Same result.

That works successfully. I edited line 111 using sed to product the same result - ran into another issue on line 123. On a whim I changed line 1 from #!/bin/sh to #!/bin/bash, and would you believe, that solved the issue.

Thank you, it did.

Next on the docket, figuring out why it's not exiting properly and returning me to my desktop... :?
