I'm fairly new to Debian/GNOME, and I'm running Squeeze and GNOME 2 and I have some questions. How exactly do I change the background image for the login window? I've looked up various suggestions but none of them seem to work - the appearances window does not ever seem to change the background image for the login screen. Also, whenever I log out or when I close the lid on my laptop and it suspends, I am unable to log back in - all I see is a black screen and my cursor, which I can move.
I was installing a bunch of packages and one of them ended up changing the background image. This was seen after logging back in. I proceeded to right click on the background and change it back while logged in. After a 2nd reboot I could see it changed it for my userid, but I still get that wrong background during the login prompt. How can I change it back for there?
I would like to change my startup image (usplash image). For that i change /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu_logo.png and /lib/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-logo/ubuntu_logo16.png. Then the splash screen of shutdown screen changes .But booting screen doesnot change.
How to enable Root login...i cant copy or move something on the HDD...I have administrator rights and password for root but i cant change permissions for the HDD without login on root and root login are not allowed .
I would like to change my username (or login name) and am wondering what the safest route to do so is. The install is on a headless server, which I just use ssh.There's a) using usermod -l newname oldname. The line in the usermod man that says that changing the login name doesn't change anything else, which makes me think that something else is bound to break. I've also considered b) creating a new user, moving the contents of my home directory to the new user, and deleting the old user. This is kind of cumbersome, but would this be the recommended way to ensure everything goes well (considering I still have to redo some config files).
I recently installed Debian 8 with the Xfce Desktop Environment. I don't like the background in the login screen and want to change it. After some Googling I discovered that the path to the background is stored in the file /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf.
Unfortunately, whenever I change the background field I'm left with a black background during login. (Yes, I triple checked that I spelt the path correctly). Does the login background have to meet some criteria I don't know about, like being a certain resolution?
EDIT: Here's the content of /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf: Code: Select all# # background = Background file to use, either an image path or a color (e.g. #772953) # theme-name = GTK+ theme to use # icon-theme-name = Icon theme to use # font-name = Font to use # xft-antialias = Whether to antialias Xft fonts (true or false)
If I start my Lenny with Gnome I get the login window. The strange problem is, I have us keyboard there, but after login I have german keyboard. Under System -> Preferences -> Keyboard I have only german keyboard layout setuped. Howto change keyboard layout at the login window?
I just installed successfully Wheezy, but I can't change my Login Window Theme.I put the three files (.desktop .xml and.jpg) in/usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow/),I think that my mistake is here but I don't know where to put the .xml file and the .jpg files.And the I edited the file/etc/gdm3/greeter.gconf-defaults.The background is well-displayed but the "theme" is still the same.
I recently installed Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix on my Gateway LT3103u. I noticed shortly into using it that it has a graphics bug every so often. Especially when I change the background image. Everything will change to a warped mix of colors and pixels. Everything is affected. My mouse, the bar at the top of the screen, text and all. My netbook runs on an AMD Athlon 64-bit processor with ATI Radeon X1270 HyperMemory up to 256MB graphics.
So far I have tried reinstalling, and even the 64bit desktop edition which had the same problem. Ive noticed that it freaks out when i scroll too quick, when changing background images, and on certain websites. Then other times its completely random. When it happens it looks similar to these: [URL]
I have a Canon iR3570/iR4570 PXL, and installed the driver CQue 1.0 TCP/IP Queue from Canon webpage.
The problem: - if i try to print an OpenOffice or LibreOffice Calc with an image and text, the image is not printed (the space is blank). - if i try to print an OpenOffice or LibreOffice Calc with just an image, it's printed great. - if i try to print an OpenOffice or LibreOffice Impress, the images are not printed but the text is printed great.
WTF why is it with every update the devs try to break something. Might as well be using Ubuntu at this point and No I do not want to install Stable. Todays updqate would bring in linux-image-2.6.39-1-686-pae linux-image-686-pae, but my CPU Single core Intel Pentium M (-UP-) cache 1024 KB flags (sse sse2) bmips 1196.07 clocked at 600.00 MHz doesn't use PAE so it told me to remove linux-image-686 and to install linux-image-486. So more shiny crap that doesn't support older hardware, it is getting to be as bad as Microsoft.
Why don't I just go upgrade or buy new hardware with every new shiny crap that wants to upgrade. If it isn't broken do NOT fsck with it.
I installed OpenSUSE 11.2-KDE about 2 weeks ago, and have been pretty satisfied with it so far. Apart from one niggling little problem. When I went to the 'Password and User Account' page (Configure Desktop>About Me) and tried to change from the default image to something more personal, I got a message box saying "Your administrator has disallowed changing your image." However, on the same page I was allowed to enter personal details and could, if I wished, have changed my password. I logged in as root to see if I could change it from there, but I got the same message. As this is a single-user machine, where I am effectively root/administrator, it would appear I am banning myself from changing my image. So far, I've been allowed to change anything else.
I figured out long ago how to change the background image and theme in GDM. It's not that difficult. But I have been suffering forever over how to change the image that is in the login box, directly above my name. I want it to show an Ubuntu or Gnome logo, but right now it just shows a blue box. I can't figure out how to do it, and because I want to learn how this stuff works,I don't want to use a third-party tool such as ubuntu tweaks.
When I start my laptop: Dell Vostro 1720, it starts loading grub, I select Ubuntu, and after that, appears one image of ubuntu logo and few points, like loading... I show it : Since I updated to ubuntu 10.04, I had this problem
1- How to change it ?
2- When I install StartupManager, it appears only with two options: Startup Options and Advanced. And there I can't change the ubuntu loading image. If we check google images, we can see more than this... I suppose this is caused by ubuntu startupManager download link....
3-I tried copy by different ways the splash.png. With gnome-conf, setting the key in apps...splash.png. Didn't work. Also I tried to replace "/usr/share/images/xsplash/bg_2560x1600.jpg" to another pic I have, but no result.
To change the GDM image all you really have to do is right click on the desktop and hit "Change Desktop Background" and select the picture you want and then hit the "Make Default" button and both will change naturally. (The lock screen and GDM Login background)Then just switch it back to your usual desktop wallpaper and go on about your day.
I've recently installed Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.4 on my HP Mini 210 HD, and installed gtk2-murrine package to utilize a theme I downloaded gnome-look.org/content/show.p...content=124548...This all worked well, until I attempted to change the background on the Gnome desktop. Upon entering the Appearance configuration, there is a file explorer fork-bomb that occurs and floods my Taskbar for up to a minute after I've entered the config. Has anyone ever experience this and if so, how can I fix this?On top of this, I cannot change the background even if I select a new image.
