Debian :: Login Manager Doesn't Display On Testing IMac G3?

Aug 2, 2010

I've successfully installed Debian testing (squeeze) on my old iMac G3. I didn't select a desktop environment as a preconfigured package, but only left "standard system utilities" checked.Once I rebooted, I logged in as root (on the command line) and ran "apt-get install xfce4 xfce4-goodies gnome-icon-theme xdm", let all that pull in and installd then rebooted. As the system was booting, I could see all the services starting and whatnot, but when it gets to the line "Starting xdm..." the screen changes to black, but stays black for a good 2 minutes. I tried hitting some keys on the keyboard, as well as typingy login credentials, even though I can't see them, but nothing seems to work. I've tried rebooting several times

Debian :: Fresh Testing Install: Display 'broken' After KDE Login

Feb 1, 2011

I have downloaded the latest testing image today (debian-testing-amd64-kde-CD-1.iso), install went just fine.

On boot, I get as far as the KDE login screen, where my user and password are seemingly accepted. Seemingly, as after this point, the screen is a complete mess. This 'mess' differs between attempts: it could be full of black and white squares, themselves made up of noise pixels; once it was like a normal screen after it had been through a blender, i.e. bits of the DE but awfully mixed up. (My judgement would be that the video pointers is set to point at the wrong part of memory... or is that my old-school point of view getting in the way? Whichever, it provides you with an idea of what it looks like.)

Running on an Nvidia GTS250 card, with two monitors (2 x DVI).

I have not installed any NV propriety drivers, as this is the first boot(s).

There is no xorg.conf present on the system; and I cannot find anything obvious in xorg.log (but then, I wouldn't know what to look for).

I use grub legacy, from my existing PCLOS partition (though this should not be an issue as I get as far as the KDE login screen, pretty as please).

Regarding the install itself, I took the above mentioned testing image as a way to get Squeeze. I assume this was the right way to do this at current time.

Debian Hardware :: Unable To Login To IMac G4 - Graphical Login?

Sep 30, 2015

I have an iMac G4 that I installed Jessie on successfully. However, when it boots, one of the last messages is:

[FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.

Last line is something along the lines of:

fb: switching to nouveaufb from OFfb NVDA,NVMac

And then the text starts dissolving, and the entire screen cycles through different colors. I presume it is sitting at the graphical login prompt but it's not displaying correctly.

Based on some Google searches, it seems like I should be able to resolve this by editing /etc/modules but I can't get to that point. I have tried to get to a terminal using ctrl-alt-F1 through ctrl-alt-F12. No luck. I tried different yaboot options that were supposed to avoid using the video driver. No luck. How do I get the machine to boot straight to a regular text login instead of the X one?

This machine worked fine running Mac OS X this morning, so I don't think it's the hardware. What I can do.

Debian Installation :: PPC Based IMac G5 - Fresh Install Freezes Before Login

Apr 27, 2015

I initially installed Debian 8 onto my iMac G5 (with KDE), and it would boot to a black screen. I then tried again, and reformatted+reinstalled with only "Standard system utilities", "Print server", and "SSH server".The boot hangs before I get to a log-in prompt. Please see the attached log files I pulled off by booting from the rescue CD option. (I got an error when attaching the log files, so I used tinyupload to upload the files.URL....

Ubuntu :: Login Using The Old Gnome Display Manager?

Jul 30, 2011

Ok, I've tried Unity for awhile now and I can say it lacks a couple of critical things for me. First is launchers, second is a task bar. While casually browsing the web is ok, more serious work involving several windows has become a pain.

I have a dual screen with four virtual desktops. I'm tired of searching for my windows.

Now, I've read in a few places that I just need to choose "Ubuntu-classic" whenever I boot my machine. This is fine, but for the fact that I don't have any options on my login screen... Just the login and the accessibility & power buttons at the bottom right.

How can I log in using the old gnome display manager?

Debian :: Testing Netinstall Doesn't Detect NIC / Drivers

Apr 12, 2010

I tried to do Debian netinstall from minimum iso image in my brother's pc. My Network Interface card is Intel 82578DC GIGABYTE Network Connection. The installer gives a list of drivers to install but I don't know what to do. Should I download and install from first CD/DVD? Will it have appropriate drivers then?

Debian Configuration :: Nm-applet Doesn't Start After (Testing)

Feb 22, 2016

After the latest update of network-manager-gnome to version 1.1.90-3 , I see that I have to start the nm-applet in Testing from a terminal, otherwise I can't bring up my wired connection.

The usual nmcli networking on command is failing to connect, also restarting the network-manager.service with systemctl doesn't do anything, the only way to connect at this time is indeed to manually start the nm-applet from a terminal.

I've also spotted this message in the logs:

Code: Select alltraps: nm-applet[1105] general protection ip error:0 in libgobject-2.0.so.0.4600.2

Could it be something wrong with my configuration (although , it worked before this update) or is it some bug in network-manager-gnome 1.1.90 ?

Ubuntu :: Lucid Doesn't Display A Login Box?

Jun 14, 2010

When I booted my computer this morning (lucid lynx 10.04, 2.6.32-21) I found that it showed me a login box, much like normal, but that the text field where I type my username was about a pixel high and disabled. So I couldn't type my username, or password, and had to resort to a tty and links to get here and ask someone for help. I can't find anything on google that looks like people having the same issue and frankly I'm not even sure what is wrong.

Debian Multimedia :: 2560x1440 60Hz Doesn't Work Over HDMI On Testing

Aug 12, 2015

I just got a new Dell monitor (U2715H), and even with beta Nvidia driver (355.06) on Debian testing x86_64, it doesn't detect highest resolution (2560x1440) when connected over HDMI to Nvidia Geforce GT 620. I have an HDMI 2.0 compliant cable, and according to Dell reps, the monitor should support 2560x1440 over HDMI.

Some suggested using xrandr to set the video mode explicitly. I tried doing it, and first got a EDID file with nvidia-settings, and run edid-decode. Where is what I got there:

Code: Select allDetailed mode: Clock 241.500 MHz, 597 mm x 336 mm
               2560 2608 2640 2720 hborder 0
               1440 1443 1448 1481 vborder 0
               +hsync -vsync

So I used those values to make a new mode in xrandr:

Code: Select allxrandr --newmode "2560x1440_60.00"  241.50  2560 2608 2640 2720  1440 1443 1448 1481 +hsync -vsync
xrandr --addmode HDMI-0 "2560x1440_60.00"

But I got this error:

Code: Select allX Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  140 (RANDR)
  Minor opcode of failed request:  18 (RRAddOutputMode)
  Serial number of failed request:  31

Ubuntu :: Mouse Cursor Doesn't Display After Login With High Resolution / Fix It?

Aug 12, 2010

Version: Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop

Problem:
When I change the resolution higher (e.g. 1920x1080),
mouse cursor disappear, until I open the terminal / Ctrl+Alt+F1 (~F6), or run other applications.
But the main problem is, every time after login, the cursor will disappear
(as I know that, before the login, the resolution is 800x600 60Hz, after login, the resolution will be adjusted according to the setting)
So, anyone know how to fix this problem?

I have searched many related posts before,
some of them told me to upgrade the driver, but it didn't help and become worse (cannot boot up, need to re-install ubuntu)
and some of them told me to modify the xorg file, it didn't help, too. (as xorg.conf doesn't exist and I have tried to create one to do the modification, but didn't help)
Any other solution?

Ubuntu / Apple :: IMac Display - Screen Will Just Go Black When Boot From A Live CD

Nov 18, 2010

I've been installing Linux Mint with OSX on a bunch of iMacs, and its been working perfectly excpet for one of the iMacs. The screen will just go black when I boot from a live CD, but I can hear the login sound play. It's strange because all of the other iMac's run the live CD just fine. What could the problem be? I don't know what I can do to troubleshoot this problem.

Debian Configuration :: Gnome Power Manager Display Setting Not Respected?

May 19, 2011

Despite having the Gnome Power Manager set to put the display to seep after 30 minutes, it always happens after 5 minutes. The display will go blank but still lit, and then it powers off after the 30 minutes. Surely, if I set it to 30 minutes, the display should power off then, and not just blank after 5? I have no screensaver packages installed so it's nothing to do with that.

Debian :: Debian Testing Vs Debian Stable With Testing Repositories?

Feb 28, 2009

I am a ubuntu user but I want to go to the next level to use debian because what I heard of it, but I get confused to what to install on my computer do I install debian testing or debain stable with testing repositories.

- I want to use this system to the home use only.
- I want to use the newest packages because the stable packages is too old to use.
- What about using more than one repository i.e stable with testing with unstable at the same time (the same sourcelist)
- Is the testing and unstable sid packages good enough for the home use?

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.

My gnome-volume-control recognizes an 'Internal Audio Analog Stereo' device, but it picks up no sound. Here's the chip information: Realtek ALC889A.

Software :: Terminal Doesn't Display Failed Pings - Only Successful Ones - Debian Lenny

Sep 15, 2010

I am running Debian Lenny and just upgraded via "apt-get upgrade" yesterday and all appears to be fine, except I noticed that when I ping something from a terminal window, it only displays successful pings and does not show the failed ones. When the pings fail, I have to "Ctrl-C" to see the results and cannot see them in real-time. It's not a huge problem, but I'd still like to be able to see immediate results even when pings fail.

Example is below:

(Username and host name changed to protect the innocent; or due to being overly paranoid, whichever).

Debian :: Why Doesn't Profile Load At Login With Lightdm

I have Debian 8.4.0 with lightdm. I'm trying to load some command lines at session startup, putting these in ~/.profile but the file is not loaded. The same procedure works well if I switch lightdm to gdm3.

Anyway, there is some idea to load some script lines at the session startup? The file .bash_profile neither works. I don't want to use ~/.bashrc because it would load every time I open a terminal. Neither to use init.d because it would load for all users.
