Dec 31, 2014

I have a fresh install of Jessie and I am unable to disable gdm3. I issued:

Code: Select alluser@debian:~$ sudo systemctl disable gdm3.service

Jul 13, 2011

Using Debian testing and gdm3. I had set the login screen settings to automatically log me in however I want to change it back so that I have to login on startup however I cannot change the settings.In System > Administration > Login Screen the 'Click to make changes' highlights when I put the mouse pointer over it and it blinks when I click on it but that is all that happens so I cannot make any changes. Is there any way to fix this problem.

Debian Multimedia :: GDM3 Login Screen Orientation

May 23, 2015

I want to set up the GDM login screen in vertical orientation = left = (xrandr -o 1) due to my monitor.

I used Ubuntu and the below method has been working until I switched to Debian8 now.

[URL] ....

Rotate login screen

If you have your monitors setup as you like (orientation, primary and so on) in ~/.config/monitors.xml and want GDM to honor those settings:

Code: Select all# cp ~/.config/monitors.xml /var/lib/gdm/.config/monitors.xml

However,

1 Debian Gnome3 does not create ~/.config/monitors.xml
2 according to dconf editor

the location is

/etc/gnome-settings-daemon/xrandr/monitors.xml

and I tweaked, but no success.

[URL] .... method can be applied to GDM3 directory.

Since I have configured my x rortation only be xrandr command by shell init script, and never had configured by GUI setting, the monitors.xml was not created. When I done with GUI, the file is created as usual.

Then I copied to

/var/lib/gdm3/.config/monitors.xml

Finally works as expected.

Debian Configuration :: Apt-get Auto-remove After Installing Jessie

Jun 20, 2015

After installing Jessie, apt-get gives me a huge list of packages with the suggestion to autoremove them. Now, I've tried auto-remove once and was left with a naked Gnome, so I was wondering if there's another way to find out which packages I should keep and which I can safely remove. Is it safe to delete packages that cannot be found using the search function for the stable release? I checked them one by one here URL....How about linux images that won't appear in the above search?

linux-image-3.14-0.bpo.1-amd64
linux-image-3.14-0.bpo.2-amd64
linux-image-3.16-0.bpo.2-amd64
linux-image-3.16-0.bpo.3-amd64
linux-image-3.2.0-4-amd64

How about results shown by deborphan?

Debian Configuration :: Auto-login And Auto-connect To Networks

Jun 3, 2010

I press On-button, Debian boots, logs in and automatically connects to the Wireless network AND! to my local pc via LAN. It runs an ssh server, so I can ssh into debian over internet and communicate with the local pc (send a magic packet).Here are my problems:

1) I don't how to log in automatically. This and this doesn't work.
2) I need a network tool that can manage multiple connections and has a reconnect feature. With the default network manager I cannot even connect to more than one network simultaneously although I have two network devices of course.

And I guess I can run all that in console mode, right?

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 Multimedia :: Checked Auto Login After Installation And Now Can't Get Rid Of It?

Jun 18, 2011

I have recently installed Debian Lenny with KDE3. I foolishly checked Auto Login after installation and now I can't get rid of it. The KDE Login Manager window seems to offer the option of turning off auto login, but it does not work. I have tried useradd and userdel but this only makes things worse.

Ubuntu Security :: Ecryptfs Doesn't Auto-decrypt With Auto-login

Jan 6, 2011

I recently installed 32bit maverick and wanted to make it login automatically. I tried enabling auto login from Admin > Login but that didnt work and I was still prompted for my password. Then I went to Users & Groups and changed the password option to Do Not ask for password at login now after I reboot, the user list is shown (only 1 user) and it doesnt ask for password after I click on my username.

However, then it gives a few errors (as i vaguely recall):

1. cannot load .ICE directory in my home directory
2. some error 256 about a gconf-sanity-2 file
3. nautilus cannot load my home directory etc

and then it gets stuck without loading anything (blank wallpaper). i ve tried navigating to my home directory using Alt F2, gksudo nautilus and my home dir contents are encrypted by the ecryptfs (there is a readme.txt file and a shortcut). i have tried to decrypt but it doesnt work... i ve also tried to start/stop gdm, and startx but nothing works. if i stop gdm, then the prompt doesnt recognize my password and keeps on rejecting the commands i enter... I think this has something to do with the home dir not being decrypted due to the dont ask for paswd option... how can i disable the dont ask for pwd without the gui (i can access my / by booting through an external usb).

Debian :: No Gdm3 On Boot?

May 2, 2011

In playing around trying to get Debian/X installed/working on my PowerBook (machine details in signature), I at some point installed gdm. I then decided to try installing Gnome desktop from the list of tasks in aptitude. I didn't install absolutely everything in the list. (I skipped the accessibility stuff for the most part, for example.) But I did try installing gdm3. Since this conflicts with gdm, this meant uninstalling gdm. No problem. The install etc. seemed to go OK and Debian's configuration tool let me choose between gdm3 and xdm as the display manager. I chose gdm3.

Problem: gdm3 will not start on boot (and I'm not sure whether or how to start it later without leaving root logged in). I found that the init scripts for gdm were still installed in /etc/rc2.d/ etc. but nothing for gdm3. There was a script at /usr/sbin/gdm which appears to want to (1) delete itself; and (2) start gdm3. But the init script /etc/init.d/gdm contains a check for gdm being the default display manager. However, it isn't. The file it checks contained /usr/sbin/gdm3. So I tried using the update-rc.d and also insserv commands to disable gdm and to install the scripts for gdm3. I could disable the commands for gdm fine but not install links for /etc/init.d/gdm3. This script seemed to want console-screen which I didn't have but managed to install by some guesswork. I then got the init script for this installed for /etc/rcS.d but still couldn't get anything installed for init for gdm3. I also tried creating the links manually but this made no difference on boot. I also tried purging gdm rather than just uninstalling it and reinstalling gdm3. No go.

Eventually, I gave up and removed and purged gdm3 and reinstalled gdm and now the display manager starts as it should on boot.

I'm not sure what I did wrong and would like to know. I don't know that I'm bothered one way or another about gdm3 vs. gdm but I'd like to understand what is going on in case something similar happens with something I *do* care about. (I don't know what the advantages of gdm3 are so maybe I should care...)

I'm using Squeeze and my sources list includes stable contrib and non-free (added the last two so I can get firmware needed for wireless).

Debian :: Where Does Gdm3 Get Its Default DPMS Timeouts

Feb 9, 2016

There's a short version at the bottom.

I just installed jessie with gdm3 and use xfce.

I like my monitor to turn off when I'm not at the computer for more than 10 or 20 minutes or so and it wasn't doing that. I haven't used Linux for years and was used to xorg.conf/x11.conf and xinitrc and such.

So I rediscovered xset is responsible for DPMS settings. xset -q revealed DPMS was off. So I used it and put it in ~/.xinitrc. It didn't work. After some canoodling around I found out about xfce's Session and Startup gui thing. I was using that to run ~/.xinitrc.

When I got to my desktop and did a check with xfce4-terminal by running xset -q it would show DPMS enabled but the values were wrong. 600, 0, 900 to be exact.

After some searching I came across the information that xscreensaver will override DPMS settings as it manages DPMS too. So after more canoodling I found out about xfce's Screensaver preferences dialogue and used that to set my values. The values would immediately be set but the problem is that they are not persistent. If I reboot or log out the values will revert to 600, 0, 900. They will only reset to what I want them to be by running xfce's Screensaver preferences dialogue manually.

man gdm3, info gdm3, grep -r DPMS in /etc/gdm3, grep -r dpms in /etc/gdm3 reveal nothing related to DPMS. I've done some searching and nothing useful.

there is an /etc/X11/app-defaults/XScreenSaver-nogl which has some DPMS settings but the times are too large (2 hours); the only thing that matches is the off setting which is specified there.

xscreensaver -no-splash is present in the output of ps so it is xscreensaver and not gnome-screensaver.

The weird thing is that I re-enabled my ~/.xinitrc in xfce's Session and Startup gui thing and it is being run, but the numbers are getting set wrong after it is run. (I put an echo command after xset dpms 900 1200 1500, and the file is appearing in ~)

Where does 600, 0, 900 come from? Mystified on how to proceed from here. I don't remember enough on how to see what's doing what. Is there some sys thing or proc thing I can monitor to find out what's setting these values?

Short version: my xset dpms values are getting reset to 600, 0, 900 every time I logout or reboot. They revert to 600, 0, 900 every time I get to my desktop. I use gdm3 and xfce. Where are these coming from?

Debian :: System Won't Boot - Hangs On Gdm3

Jun 29, 2011

I'm running Debian Squeeze on a Dell Studio Laptop, and this morning my computer woke up and gnome was randomly frozen. I dismissed this as a random error and proceeded to hard-reboot the computer. It now will not boot at all. After multiple attempts, every time the boot process hangs on "Starting GNOME display manager gdm3." I even left it there for 2 hours while I was gone to see if it would get past the hang. It did not, and was still stopped at that same line when I got back. get my system back. I have a live CD available to perform maintenance if anyone has an idea of what's wrong.

Debian Configuration :: GDM3 Can't Change The Background

Debian Multimedia :: How To Log Into X Session As Root Using GDM3

Sep 20, 2015

To use most of my Kali applications, I want to be able to log into an X session as root. I know it is generally a bad idea and I don't want to do it as a rule, but it is useful for penetration testing (e.g. nmap and its GUI don't have most of the useful options when run as a regular user).

So how do I get GDM3 to allow me to log in as root? Currently, if I type in the user name "root" and log in, it just takes me back to GDM3. Could it work to add root to my user group (I really don't want to add all kinds of security holes)?

Debian :: Radeon Driver And By Consequence Gdm3 In Wheezy?

May 21, 2011

I want to use the open source radeon driver. My video card is AMD/ATI RADEON HD4850. I want 3D acceleration even if it's inferior to fglrx's although I would like if it exceeded fglrx's performance but the performance of the driver is not the point of this thread. Fortunately, fsck was checking the hard drive upon booting so I had time to write the boot output in this computer which I believe would be of help.

Video card:
Failed to load firmware "radeon/RV770_pfp.bin"
*ERROR* Failed to load firmware!
disabling GPU acceleration

gdm3: rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - Failed to request firmware. I attempted to install firmware-linux and do sudo gdm3 but all that did is say gdm3 lasted for 0.x seconds where x changes and it kept re-printing that sentence infinitely. I also rebooted and tried to let gdm3 start itself.

Firstly, I'm assuming the open source driver relies on proprietary firmware. Why is this the case? Secondly, how do I get the radeon/RV770_pfp.bin firmware? Is it not in the firmware-linux package? Why does it matter that GPU acceleration is disabled for loading gdm3? Isn't simple 2D enough? (I'm not saying this because I don't want to have 3D enabled since I do want it enabled but because I would imagine that 2D capabilities are enough to load gdm3). If more information is needed, just ask.

i installed oroborus and rox-filer and did not see an entry for either in gdm3's session chooser. i have used these window managers together before and was always able to select the session from gdm. i thought i might have to add an oroborus.desktop file to /usr/share/xsessions, but only found one in /usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/sessions and it didn't show up when i copied it to /usr/share/xsessions. how can i get oroborus into gdm3's session chooser?

Debian Configuration :: Disable Gdm3 Startup Beep?

Jun 10, 2011

I got a problem with a Dell Latitude E5500. I can not disable the hardware beep after the gdm3 login screen has been loaded. All alsa beeps and system sounds are disabled and/or muted. I also tried setterm -blength 0, xset -b in startup scripts. They disable terminal-beeps, but not the halt or the gdm login beep. I tried wasting around with the gconftool, but nothing happened. It is an annoying sound. If you use, init 0 to shut down, no beep comes up.

Debian Multimedia :: Gdm3 Can't Start Gnome-session

May 7, 2015

I installed jessie from a beta/rc shortly before release on my MacBook Pro 13 Retina and have kept it up to-date with apt-get dist-upgrade. Rcently gdm3/gnome-session have stopped working together. When I log in the screen goes black for a couple of seconds then goes back to the login screen. This happens with "System Default", "GNOME Classic" and "GNOME", but not with "GNOME on Wayland". However, Wayland seems to have some other issues. I haven't tried an alternative dm yet, eg lightdm, but the GNOME desktop does work when started with startx.

I've just used journalctl to get logs of what gdm3 and gnome-session were doing at the time. After booting I waited until the clock reached the next minute (19:55) so I'd know at which point in the logs I'd hit enter on my password. I'll post the gdm log separately in two chunks because the forum server doesn't seem to like text attachments and they're too long for one post.

Log from gnome-session:
Code: Select all-- Logs begin at Thu 2015-05-07 19:54:06 CEST, end at Thu 2015-05-07 19:56:41 CEST. --

Debian Multimedia :: Gdm3 Does Not List Users At Log In Screen

I'm using jessie and since I upgraded from wheezy, gdm3 no longer shows a list of users in the logon screen. (I can still log on by selecting "other users").

I had previously had the same symptoms on wheezy, but had fixed it by changing "UID_MIN" to 500 in /etc/login.defs

Debian Multimedia :: Gdm3 / Gnome And Multiple X Sessions

Sep 11, 2015

Running Jessie (with a low-pinned Debian-based repositories added to my sources.list (e.g. Kali, kxstudio) for those packages not currently available on Debian (like the Kali menu of security tools). Running on a HP 15-r189nd (Energy Star) laptop.

First question: How do I get GDM3 to add root as an option during login? I can type the root user name in. I don't need it to show the root user in the user list (would actually prefer to need to type it in), but I do want to be able to start an X session as root, since some of the Kali tools (e.g. nmap) needs root to function fully. If I type in root and try to start, it just takes me back to the GDM3 login.

Second question: When I want to select my Desktop Enviroment/Window Manager in GDM3, the list appears below the little gear so I can only see half of the list (xfce not visible to select). How do I change the GDM3 appearance/settings that will change the position of the DE list?

Third question: How do I get multiple X sessions running simultaneously? What I have been able to do, while logged in as myuser and running X on tty7, is to log into a tty[1-6] as root, and then startx -- :1, but this somehow skips my default desktop manager (GDM3) and boot straight into LXDE (with no menus!). In /etc/X11/default-diplay-manager I have: /usr/sbin/gdm3 ? How do I get startx -- :1 to start a desktop manager?

Fourth question: When I did the above startx -- :1 as root, it would start the X session in the same tty (e.g. tty2) where I was logged in as root running the startx command. It used to be (in older Linux versions) that startx -- :1 would start an X session on tty8 (and the default would be :0 on tty7). Is this the (new) way things are supposed to work? Or is there something wrong with my setup?

Question 5: Once I have started an LXDE session as root, how do I get it to show the full application menu that my regular user can see? Can I just copy the config files over? Which ones? Or is there a better way?

Question 6: Gnome used to start fine. Then I ran Gnome on Wayland once, and now regular Gnome (on X?) no longer runs, but give me a "Oops! Something went wrong" error and Alt-F4 just takes me back to GDM3. Classic Gnome and Gnome on Wayland still runs OK. Should I log a bug report?

Debian Multimedia :: Gdm3 Hangs After Changing User Name?

Jan 15, 2011

I changed my user name with the following commands:usermod -l $newname $oldnamegroupmod -n $newname $oldname usermod -d /home/$newname -m $newnameAlso replaced every instance of /home/$oldname ith /home/$newname in ~/.config.Now gdm3 hangs with a black screen and wristwatch icon. (I can move the icon with the mouse.) This worked fine with gdm. I've looked for gdm3 files that have /home/$oldname in my home and in /etc and couldn't find anything significant.Anyone have any ideas or suggestions on how to fix this or where to look? For now, I've disabled gdm3, and I'm using startx. This is an installation in virtualbox. I just tried using ctrl-alt-F1, but it dropped me to console in the host system. (Nice rush of adrenaline came with that.)

The only errors in Xorg.0.log are there even with a successful startx. (EE) Failed to load module "xboxvideo" (module does not exist, 0)(EE) open /dev/fb0: No such file or directoryCouple more bits of relevant information - this was a live-build that I installed using refractainstaller. I also changed /etc/inittab to disable auto-login. Here are the changes, original lines commented out, new lines look like the inittab in my regular squeeze install, but I don't think this is the problem (see below.)

#1:2345:respawn:/bin/login -f user </dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1
#2:23:respawn:/bin/login -f user </dev/tty2 >/dev/tty2 2>&1
#3:23:respawn:/bin/login -f user </dev/tty3 >/dev/tty3 2>&1

Debian :: Fglrx And /etc/init.d/gdm3 Start Not Working In Squeeze

Jul 31, 2010

Here is my xorg.conf when I attempt to use fglrx:

Section "Device"
Identifier "ATI RADEON HD4850"
# Driver "ati"
Driver "fglrx"
EndSection

Also, doing /etc/init.d/start/ gdm3 says Starting GNOME display manager: gdm3 but it doesn't do anything. I tried pressing ctrl+f1 all the way to ctrl+f12 and nothing. What does work however is sudo gdm3 (with the "ati"/"radeon" driver --- nothing works at all with fglrx).

I am trying to get fglrx working because I want to fix this compiz issue I've been having here which could be related to the shortcomings of the "ati"/"radeon" driver: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=40991&p=312577#p312577
