Debian Configuration :: Nautilus Segfault Preventing Login By Gdm

Mar 5, 2010

I removed my .gnome and .nautilus folders and .notifier file. it is working now. I do not know exactly which of these 3 fixed it but I hope this might help someone else!I have some major issue with nautilus which is preventing me from loogging in into my system which is kind of criticle this weekend.I'm running Squeeze with latest updates.

The problem:Today gnome gave some problems caus my taskbar was suddently gone. I couldn't get it back to i reinstall gnome-desktop and updated my whole system. At the update some yes/no questions on a blue screen asking me to restart cups etc had corrupted yes/no buttons. Weird character sets were shown. Well that can happen sometimes i thought.After reinstalling gnome i can't login anymore. My screen keeps flashing while it shows the loading icon of the mouse.Anyone got suggestions? I can't find similar problems on the internet, only problems that happen while already logged in. In my case the segfault prevents gdm starting!

Debian Configuration :: Kernel Panic - Not Syncing / Segfault At Init

Feb 19, 2016

I recently tried to install php5-gd package on my debian vmware server and it failed at libc6 - i386.

Afterwards every command other than CD caused a Segmentation fault and the server would no long boot, showing the following error

Debian Configuration :: Preventing Multiple Instances Of User?

Sep 6, 2010

Currently, a user is able to log into multiple terminals simultaneously, creating a copy of their roaming profile on each, and potentially causing problems if the instances are logged out in the wrong order. Is there any way to prevent this, so that if a user has logged in on a machine and not logged out (and perhaps some timeout has not yet expired) then their login attempts on another machine will be rejected.

Ubuntu :: Slim Login Manager Preventing Computer From Booting To Login Screen

Aug 4, 2011

yesterday i installed slim login manager on my computer (eee pc 1018p, ubuntu 11.04), and now it cannot get passed the ubuntu loading screen (with orange dots underneath) when booting. i tried booting into recovery mode and that didn't work either. i also left the computer trying to boot overnight and that didn't work.
basically, during this loading screen that should eventually bring you to the login screen, i can alt+tab to see the progress of the load. the progress is stuck on

Is there anything I can do from grub to remove slim?or, is there any way I can access my ubuntu partition and save all my files?

Debian Configuration :: Nautilus Can't Browse Local Network

Apr 21, 2010

I have a new Debian 5.04/ppc install on a G5 tower and it's not able to browse the local network. The clean install could see the network, then I installed the Samba server, and it hasn't worked since. Samba server never really worked, and I'm guessing I messed something up. I've reinstalled network-manager, and removed / reinstalled samba.

I have a small home network (6 machines) running wired and/or wireless, pc/mac and linux.This machine can PING other machines by name and IP address.This machine can PING itself by name and IP address
Other machines can PING this machine by IP address only, not by name.Nautilus network browser only shows the "Windows Network" icon, which, when clicked, shows an empty window.I've got networking up fine on all my other machines but this one is stumping me.

Fedora :: Preventing KDE App From Restarting After Reboot / Login

Jul 5, 2010

I'm running F13 with KDE 4.4.4 on my desktop PC. A few months ago I had occasion to run Kalarm (invoked via "Kickoff" app launcher). Ever since that time, the Kalarm icon appears in my KDE "system tray" after I login. I power down my PC when I'm finished using it for the day.In an effort to get rid of the Kalarm icon, I changed my KDE "session manager" (System settings -> Advanced -> Session Manager) settings to: "on login: start with an empty session". But the Kalarm icon still appears in my "system tray" after the next reboot/login.I've also tried right-clicking on the Kalarm icon and selecting "quit". The icon still re-appears after the next reboot/login.Why didn't the session manager setting: "on login: start with an empty session" get rid of the Kalarm icon?

Ubuntu Servers :: Preventing Terminal Login From Going Blank?

May 11, 2010

I've had a couple Ubuntu 8.04 servers hang hard with no terminal response.

After a given time the terminal login screen will go blank automatically. I'd like to prevent that from happening in order to hopefully catch any messages that get output to the screen before these hangs occur. Currently when the server hangs, I can mash the keyboard all I want, the screen stays blank.

I've tried 'setterm -powersave off -blank 0', but that doesn't seem to hold after logout.

Debian :: Colord-sane Segfault During Boot

Sep 6, 2015

I just saw this message in the syslog and wondered if it could have anything to do with my previous problems with LXDE crashing:

Code: Select allSep  6 08:03:34 MyComputer kernel: [ 1003.788502] colord-sane[3381]: segfault at 21 ip b4de95ba sp b5609fb8 error 6 in[b4dbe000+4a000]

I have read a number of bug reports regarding this issue and it appears to go back about two years. It was supposedly fixed but that does not appear to be the case unless there is something peculiar with my Wheezy 7.8 installation.I just found this on a Ubuntu bug report. It is related to a colord-sane but not necessarily exactly the same as what I am experiencing.This is a libsane bug, not a colord bug. If you want to to work around it, change /etc/colord.conf to have UseSANE=false

Debian Configuration :: Wlan0 Gets Deactivated While Login

May 13, 2010

From yesterday on, I am not able to connect my Laptop to my WiFi Router automatically when logging in to gnome desktop.

The following is the message found in /var/log/messages.

Its Lenny 5.0.4 and I can see my wifi LED ON till the gdm login page. After the login, while loading my desktop, the LED goes OFF and I have to restart the network-manager for enabling the wifi again. Why is this happening? Do I have to change the configuration settings in /etc/dbus-1/system.d/ to fix this. I really don't know what change needs to be done there and where.

The same day when this problem started while logging in I got an error message from nautilus. The screen-shot is attached with this mail. Does this error have anything to do with the network issue?

Debian Configuration :: Stuck At Screen Before Login

Aug 23, 2010

I'm new to the world of linux I've started using it just one week ago.I installed Debian Lenny without problem, and after 2 or 3 days managed to make my wifi and ATI card to work. Today I tried installing compiz, through the packet manager that comes with the system. It was downloaded and installed successfully, so I rebooted to see it effects (I guess) but after that, I wasn't able to get to the login screen anymore, it just gets stuck at the "gray" screen before that (I took a pic of what screen i'm talkin about). Then I accessed in console mode and removed all the compiz packages, tried dpkg-reconfigure gnome and gnome-core, then reinstalled the ati drivers, but the problem is still there.I don't want to reinstall the whole system, I don't think a simple problem like this is enough to do so, but sincerely I'm completly lost.

Debian Configuration :: Avoid Suspend Of Lid Close Without Login

Jul 20, 2015

So I have this laptop with a busted battery, I'm trying to get it into some kind of headless server, media topbox hybrid.

First thing I want to do is being able to leave it shut (powered on) in the corner without having to interact with it directly.

I've setup ssh and vnc so to login remotely and do task, transfer files and etc.

However there is a little issue with the laptop lid down upon turning it on, it immediately goes into suspend when getting to the display manager, which is 'lightdm'.

I suppose this is the default setting for Xorg and as such my custom configs for KDE only kick in after I login.

Question is: I never seen configuration for default power management stuff being done in Xorg, is there some way to disable automatic suspension on lid down?

Another question is: After the KDE kicks in does it always replace power options? I have setup a xorg.conf file specifying dpms options but these don't seem to remain.

Debian Configuration :: User Login And Run Network-manager?

Feb 16, 2016

After fossicking around I can not find anything around that I can invoke in a terminal to configure settings in network-manager. The applet(?) on the task bar doesn't ask for a login, so options are grey/grayed out. The "program" in the applications menu is similarly grey/grayed out.

If it was a once off, then I suspect that it would be simple as login as root to start X, but I have a series of config files to edited each time of their initial use. also, there is the ongoing problem of vpn target switching.

woops; wheezy with xfce4 and everything is uptodate.

Debian Configuration :: Newly Created Users Can't Login?

Aug 27, 2010

i've written a bash script to add new users to our system. the script works so I won't bother you all about that. when a new user is created with it, they can immediately login to our domain from any terminal, which is good. However, the newly created user is unable to login to debian at all, and so cannot access the server. when attempting to do so, they get a message like "the system administrator has disabled your account". This is a good thing really as normal users have no need for debian login, but I do need to add a few admin users who will need direct access to the server machine.

/usr/sbin/useradd -g smbusers -d /home/$username -s /bin/false -m $username
passwd $username
smbpasswd -a $username

This is the code I'm using to add the user. The rest of my script is just a wrapper and GUI. I figure the login shell may have something to do with it, so I tried changing the shell of a user to the default /bin/bash. This resulted in the user being able to login - sort of. Gnome doesn't load though, and there's a cascade of errors across the screen about things failing to save or load settings. mostly stuff like nautilus, X, and gnome. the desktop background is black and there's no interface. Logging in with a previously existing account works fine though. Clearly I have an issue somewhere.

Debian Configuration :: Can't Login As Root On Gnome / Resolve This?

Mar 9, 2011

I have squeeze with gnome. Various apps let me log in as root when needed to but if I logout as a user and try to login as root it won't let me (won't authenticate password). I had this problem before and reinstalled Debian and definitely checked for it to allow me to do this and it worked for a while after new install. Apparently some update overrode my preferences. This is a major defect and may force me to abandon Debian. I don't use root often but I don't have any use for a operating system that won't let me use it. Anyone know how to correct this. I am not interested in using a terminal on a regular basis or ever for that matter.

Debian Configuration :: Gnome Login Screen Fails To Start

Oct 6, 2015

Today I upgraded my system to the Nvidia driver 340.93 and 4.2.0-1 kernel on Debian Stretch.

While I wait for the gnome login screen to pop up I get the "Oh no something has gone wrong" message.

When I log in from another terminal and execute startx , gnome initiates and starts although settings like my resolution and other xserver settings are not loaded.

From the journalctl I believe the error is located in the following section:

Code: Select allOct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC org.a11y.atspi.Registry[1692]: SpiRegistry daemon is running with well-known name - org.a11y.atspi.Registry

[Code] ....

I reinstalled the xorg-xserver and the nvidia drivers and I get the same behavior.

Looking for some info in order to reconfigure the gnome-session to work?

Debian Configuration :: Samba Denies Login After Upgrade To Jessie

Jan 2, 2016

I just upgraded to jessie and now Samba won't let me log in anymore. I merged smb.conf manually. It now looks like this (removed comments):

Code: Select all[global]
   workgroup = WORKGROUP
   dns proxy = no
   bind interfaces only = no
   log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
   max log size = 1000
   syslog = 0

[Code] .....

With smbclient logs as follows:
Code: Select allsmbclient -L 192...

Enter user's password:
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_UNSUCCESSFUL

If I provide a wrong password, it raises NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE, also if retry with the correct password.

Not sure about what resolved the issue. But after I purged samba, reconfigured it, added the users AND set www-data's shell to bash again (which was changed during the update), it now seems to work

Debian Configuration :: LTSP Login With Active Directory Credentials

Feb 28, 2016

I've been working on building an LTSP server for diskless booting. I have a tftp server that's booting the system. I followed the steps on [URL] .... to build the LTSP server.

I had to make one change from the guide. I have a cisco router that's acting as the DHCP, I'm not very familiar with Cisco IOS so instead of playing with that, I decided to modify the default file on the PXE.

I commented the kernel append line and added the following instead


Code: Select allappend initrd=initrd.img-3.16.0-4-amd64 init=/sbin/init-ltsp root=/dev/nfs rw nfsroot= ip=dhcp

I'm mounting the nfs as a rw file system for now. I'm planning to make it read only once I have it working the way I want. In addition to this, I also chroot into the LTSP root and installed lightdm + mate. As I understood what I read, this would boot the environment on the diskless system. All of this seem to work correctly.

What I need to do next is to find a way to setup the LTSP clients to log in by authenticating on the active directory. I understand that the login account used by the LTSP client has to exist on the LTSP server.

I have successfully added the LTSP server as a worksation within the windows domain and I can log into domain accounts from the LTSP server but domain credentials do not work when using an LTSP client, I can only log in if I use an account that exists on the LTSP server. I wanted to know if there is a way to accomplish AD authentication.

Do I have to build an LDAP server on the LTSP server, sync accounts with the Active Directory to be able to log in with AD credentials?
