Unable to copy/paste when connecting to Debian 12 via PuTTY

There appears to be a difference between Debian 11 and 12 which causes PuTTY to be unable to copy and paste. I've read something about Wayland, but I'm not too knowledgeable on whether or not that's this issue or how I'd find a workaround.

When connecting to Debian 11, highlighting will copy the text into my Windows clipboard and right click will paste from my Windows clipboard into the SSH window. When it comes to Debian 12, copying and pasting is not forwarded to Windows but rather just stays within the SSH session itself.

Any help would be appreciated.

Debian on Dell XPS 13 9340 (2024 edition)

Has anyone managed to get all hardware supported on Debian? All hardware works for me on Ubuntu 22.04. On Ubuntu 24.04, everything works except the webcam (I hear others got it to work and I am waiting on details).

I would prefer to use Debian; however, just trying the Live install I can tell I need to find drivers (the WiFi NIC wasn't even recognized).

Curious if anyone has had success?

Videoprojecteur not displaying

Hello, I'm trying to install debian desktop for my media player. I have a nvidia gtx 960. I think it's important and that's why : During the installation process, the videoprojecteur works well, after the first boot, no image is displayed. I have a second videoprojecteur and no problem with it. I really think it's related to the driver, because I also tried to install windows to see if the problem persists and it work until I install the nvidia driver. Is there any way to use another driver? For info, my cpu doesn't have a graphic chipset.

Thanks a lot for your help!

To Sid or not to Sid? That is the question 🤔

HI,

I run both Debian Stable and Arch. Debian is my workstation and Arch is my playstation.

I have more experience with Arch and as much as I LOVE Debian, I get a little bored (please don't crucify me).

I was considering upgrading my Stable Debian to Sid by changing the sources entries, but I have no experience with using it. That being said, I am wondering if some of you can chime in on whether you think I will regret doing this or if you have any other input.

I'm hoping to achieve a similar feel to Arch. What are your thoughts?

Having inconsistent results with sudo reboot.

I'm running Debian 12 and Xfce 4.18 on my Steam Deck, whenever I use the sudo reboot command sometimes it reboots fines and then other times it hangs on the boot logo.

When I first installed the distro, I could reboot from the selection menu in the top right, this has gone now.

What do you guys think could be causing these issues?

Debian 12 on desktop with NVIDIA 3060 extremely slow

Hi,

After great experience using Debian 12 on my XPS (Intel UHD graphics), I want to move my desktop comp to Debian. I have NVIDIA 3060 and 790 chipset, but processor is w/o integrated graphic card. So my problem is - DE is extremely, I mean EXTREMELY slow. I could not type a command in Konsole. I suppose it's because of video drivers. So my question is> any way to install NVIDIA drivers during installation, i.d. copied to USB? Or any other way?

Thanks in advance.

PS I read this and not trying to install drivers from NVIDIA directly.

Any way to get Plasma 6 on Trixie?

I have a GTX 1060, and it is a known issue with the proprietary driver on Plasma 5 where the taskbar will randomly freeze and you have to restart the taskbar to fix it. KDE has made it clear they're not going to fix it on Plasma 5 and you'll have to upgrade to 6 to fix it. It's really annoying, and Debian Trixie doesn't have Plasma 6 yet, and considering even Sid is still on 5, I feel like it's going to be a while before 6 comes to Trixie. Is there any other way to get it?

Installing kernel 5.x on debian 12.6 - help wanted

Hello,

I've been tasked with setting up a new linux machine for a machine vision application that uses some specific hardware and cuda acceleration. Debian (12.6) was chosen because I have the most experience with it (i.e. not a lot but better than nothing, I dabble and classify as an advanced beginner)

One of the pieces of hardware has a driver that only has support up to kernel 5.x and since Debian 12.6 ships with kernel 6.x I can't install this driver.

So to me there are 2 options: change distro to a recent one that uses 5.x or find a way to install 5.x in debian 12.6 (or option 3, go for Debian bullseye, but rather not, given that it has entered LTS)

Can anyone point me in the right direction with some savvy beginner lingo? Thanks in advance

thunderbolt display output refresh rate issues

SOLVED: Just needed a reboot

So I've got the display outputting over thunderbolt and the monitor is working. The thunderbolt to DP adapter I have should be capable of 144hz @ 4K.

When I try to change the refresh rate to anything other than 59.95Hz the monitor just doesn't detect any input.

Is this a settings issue, a driver issue, an adapter issue or a display issue?

I'm on a NUC with internal GPU:

Intel Corporation Iris Plus Graphics 640

Thanks

Supported CPUs in a Kernel Version

Good Morning,

I want to check if my relatively new CPU (AMD Ryzen 7 7840U) is already supported with the current stable kernel (Debian 6.1.94-1).

I checked several different pages from the debian forum/wiki, but could not find a list with supported CPUs.
I guess, since the CPU was released in June last year, that it is supported.
However, i was not able to confirm that in any way. Also, i do not know which non-stable kernel i would need if there is no support.

May i ask you to explain to me/direct me to an explanation on how i can get that information.

Thanks in Advance,
d2minik

I want to pick one between Sid and stable

Hello, i want install debian, and, for my personal preference, i was thinking about Debian sid.

Now, the xz vulnerability mae me kinda paranoid and i was opting for stable for security concerns, but i'm aware i may be kinda exaggerated.

Honeslty, i'm not interested in testing.

Debian approach to recent x86_64 microarchitectures?

The baseline x86_64 microarchitecture is now some 20 years old, meaning that Debian's targeting x86_64 with minimal extensions is leaving a good amount of performance on the table. Of course, for compatibility this x86_64 is a very valuable compilation target. However, for performance-critical applications, it seems a more recent microarchitecture may be desirable as an option.

I imagine that in the Debian world, recent microarchitectures could be handled as a separate "port". Have there been any efforts to support x86_64 v3 or v4 (or even v2) in Debian, whether through a port or otherwise?

bridge an interface

Hi all.

I have a NUC with 2 interfaces, eno1 (built-in) and enxe4f (USB). eno1 has a static IP of 172.16.100.1 and what I'm looking to do is bridge enxe4f with an IP of 172.16.100.3 (bridge name br0). I can create the bridge with no issues and it all seems fine but my Unifi controller complains that there's overlapping IPs and the dhcp server complains about multiple interface match the same subnet. The Unifi controller lists both MACs as on different ports however I can see the list changes the IPs to both .1s randomly. The DHCP is set to bind to eno1.

My ultimate goal here is to bridge br0 to a VM. Is this possible or am I doing something wrong?

Cheers

Cosmic Desktop on Debian.

Today I tried to install Cosmic Desktop from system76 by borrowing pre-built rpm packages from fedora 40. It's quite usable on Debian (I'm using sid). Some glitches happened and some components crash (e.g cosmic-screenshot and cosmic-settings-daemon), I expect that. Overall I quite like it.

Some notes :

  • Install xdg-desktop-portal, if screenshot tool or cosmic-screenshot doesn't work.
  • Install upower, if battery percentage and time remaining won't show on cosmic-panel.
  • Install geoclue to make cosmic-settings-daemon and brightness control works.

Multiple DEs

Hi. Noob here. Been using Mint for some time now, and got used to Cinnamon DE. Wanted to try and install Debian and saw that you are allowed to install different options of DEs. I wanted to try Gnome DE, but don't want to reinstall again the entire OS if I don't like it and prefer to return to Cinnamon. Just wanted to know if it's okay to install the 2 of them at the same time (I understand that you can through the installation process). Don't know if this can break the OS or something. What's thebwordt that could happen? Thanks <3

Anyone using Debian and 3D printing software ?

hi, I'm using Debian stable, I've ordered a Creality 3D printer, Ender 3 V3 KE.

The Creality slicer is not open source, so probably I'll try Cura , but I'd like to know opinions from people already doing this...

And regarding CAD software, do you have any suggestions? I may "postpone" this choice starting tinkering with files from other people, but I'll need to design my own stuff sooner or later...

Debian 12 Nvidia Optimus

Hi all,

I have a Dell xps 7590 with the i7 and nvidia 1650.

I tried to install the proprietary invidia drivers but unfortunately in xserver i was not seeing any option for toggling between intel and nvidia (I know optimus works on this laptop because on windows 10 it works no problem).

I later tried to install the driver with nvidia-driver, nvidia-settings and nvidia-xconfig.

i then ran sudo nvidia-xconfig and did a reboot and now xserver only shows application profiles tab, nvidia-settings configuration and nothing else. I also now no longer see my nvidia card in neofetch.

Is there a way i can fix this and have optimus work as it does on windows? Id love to have a simple toggle so that i can easily switch between each gpu or have it that the intel one is always on and i can just use when to use nvidia card with certain apps.

Many thanks :)

Is it a problem if I don’t enable secure boot?

I was struggling to install Nvidia drivers and had to use drivers from the Nvidia website, but to install it I needed to disable secure boot but now that the drivers are working If I enable secure boot Debian just doesn’t boot it stays on a loading screen.

So the question is do I really need to have secure boot enabled? Because then I’m back to square one.

rtcwake does not work with hibernation

Hi,

I am running Debian testing on a Surface Go 2 and usually hibernate my system.
Hibernation as such works fine, it is currently set up via a swap-file.

What I would now like to have is a way to automatically start my system at a given time but unfortunately rtcwake does not seem to work with hibernation as the system does not wake up again.

I can use suspend to ram like this and it works ok:

sudo rtcwake -m mem -t $(date -d '20240709 18:11' +%s)

however when trying to use hibernation like this

sudo rtcwake -m disk -t $(date -d '20240709 18:11' +%s)

the system goes into hibernation but unfortunately it never wakes up again until I manually press the power button...

Is there anything I need to configure to make it work or is this a hardware limitiation for which there is no way around?

Any ideas I could try?

Many thanks!
