Debian Multimedia :: No Wallpaper / Desktop Icons - Xfce/XDM On Squeeze?

Apr 10, 2010

I have been an Ubuntu user for the past two years and have recently made the switch to Debian, so while not new to GNU/Linux or Debian-like distributions I am still learning on many fronts. Installing squeeze directly caused issues with my Wi-Fi for some reason, so I installed lenny and performed aptitude safe-upgrade (full-upgrade kept breaking the system), and took care of stray packages manually to get a working squeeze system. My desktop environment of choice is Xfce, using XDM.

Ever since the upgrade, both the login prompt and the actual desktop have had a black background with no icons or right-click menu. I am guessing that the issue is a daemon that should be running but isn't, although I have no idea where to begin troubleshooting the issue, which is why I came here. I've uploaded at of my desktop here Right-clicking in the black space doesn't do anything, and changing my wallpaper settings is ineffective.It's not a huge problem for me, as everything else in the system appears to work, but I would like to figure out what the problem is, fix it, and maybe learn something about Debian in the process.

Debian Multimedia :: Xfce 4.6 Won't Remember Desktop Settings

Mar 3, 2011

My Googling about this said to make sure xfdesktop was running. I have.Changes made to the panel, to startup and session persist.But number of workplaces, wallpaper, font, theme and so on revert to what they were before. These settings are from when I used Xfce before in Ubuntu 8.04. (My /home dir is on its own partition and I like to keep all my config files for apps I have used and might want to again.)I suspect I might need to delete a config file but I'd rather not undo all of the other settings that do work. Which? Or is it something else?

Debian Multimedia :: Cannot Recover Desktop On Squeeze

Jul 28, 2015

After unsuccessfully trying to install some updates on my debian squeeze system, I can no longer login to gnome when I restart the system. I've tried logging in both as root and as user and have typed in 'startx' or 'gnome-session' at the prompt but I get an error message "**(gnome-session:12020): WARNING **: Cannot open display:". I've searched the web for solutions but nothing works. I've had my debian squeeze for over three years now with no issues.

Debian Multimedia :: Unresponsive Desktop In KDE4 With K3b - Squeeze

Aug 23, 2010

I'm running Squeeze with KDE 4.4.5 in my desktop. Everything seems to be fine, except for some unresponsiveness that is really annoying. The main problem (but this also reflects on other uses, though in a less intense manner) is when K3b is burning or erasing anything (including CD-R and CD-RW). The whole system becomes unusable. Not even a Konsole window can return from a "aptitude search something" query.

I have a Intel i7 920 system with 6GB RAM and two 1.5TB disks. I use an AMD Radeon 4890 video card with their proprietary drivers (at least for now it is the only option). I also have an extra Audigy sound card. I thought that such a system would be enough to have a good desktop experience while multitasking. What might be wrong?

Sep 2, 2011

I have installed debian squeeze with XFCE following this tutorial:It worked well, but I have one problem: the resolution is not right. How could I change it?The only resolutions that are available right now are 1280x1024, 1024x768, 800x600, 640x780. I have a 19" wide screen, so the resolution should be 1440x900.

Debian Configuration :: Squeeze XFCE Wicd And Wpa Encryption?

Jun 7, 2011

The laptop runs Debian Squeeze XFCE installed from the Live iso (uname -a gives 2.6.32-5-686 as the kernel) and has Wicd 1.7.0 for network management and uses the ipw2100 wifi firmware/drivers. It connects fine using WEP encryption at home and to unencrypted connections found in a couple of public areas. I have had one problem with a WEP encrypted connection in a cafe (got through encryption, but could not get an IP address. There are workarounds which I will try next time I have coffee there When changing my router to use WPA2, I get 'bad password' errors. There is quite a literature on 'bad password errors' and Wicd and kernel 2.6.32, however a lot of the pages are contradictory. The Wicd log showed this...

2011/06/07 17:25:59 :: WPA_CLI RESULT IS ASSOCIATING
2011/06/07 17:26:00 :: wpa_supplicant authentication may have failed.
2011/06/07 17:26:00 :: connect result is Failed


I'm fine using WEP at home, but I need to connect out and about as well and meet WPA2 connections in some locations

Debian Multimedia :: Squeeze Compiling Dwm From Debian Source / Reality Check

Aug 18, 2011

Below is the recipe I've used to compile dwm from source on Squeeze

apt-get install devscripts debian-keyring
apt-get build-dep dwm

It all seems to work, however debuild gave an error about secret keys. Is this a sensible procedure? What happens in the (probably unlikely) event there is another source patch?I've gone to a tiling window manager as the result of the purchase of a wide screen LCD monitor. I like to have some stuff down the right hand side when running Firefox and OpenOffice in the main panes. Any configuration tricks welcome. Modern screens are the wrong shape!

Debian :: Xfce Desktop - Mobile Broadband Not Recognized

Booting debian with xfce desktop (8.2, amd64) using a live cd of iso hybrid. While a wired network can be easily connected using network manager, it fails to recognize the mobile broadband (I am using a USB dongle). The network manager gui disappears after I select `Mobile Broadband'. Moreover, Code: Select allnmcli -p con does not recognize the gsm connection, but Code: Select allnmcli dev status returns that a USB gsm connection is present at ttyUSB3.

Debian :: Resolution All Different On Squeeze Desktop

Dec 31, 2010

On my desktop with Squeeze the resolution is all different when I booted up this morning. It used to be something like 1680 x 1050 and now the highest available under system > preferences > monitors is 1360 x 768. I don't believe I have had any xorg.conf file on here since installation. There were a fair number of updates yesterday but I can't figure out what the source of this might be. My system is multiboot, though nothing but Squeeze has been booted for months.

I checked a different old linux distribution and it had the same problem but with even lower resolution. It shares the same home partition which has Gnome settings on it. Then I checked the w vista boot and even it had a similar problem of low resolution, though I was able to fix it by hand, selecting the higher resolution. So I can't figure out if the source of this problem is hardware, software, or what. I've checked all the connections and they seem tight.

Debian :: Dump For Squeeze As A Desktop OS?

Feb 2, 2011

I've been using Linux for about 8 years now, including Red Hat, Debian, Fedora, Mandrake (now Mandriva), Libranet (R.I.P.), and an aborted foray into Gentoo (not my cup of tea). A few years ago, I switched to Ubuntu, and now I use it everywhere. It runs my Mythtv dvr at home, powers my laptop, and my desktop at work. I'm now considering with some reluctance to return to Debian. I like the basic principles of Debian, and now don't feel I need the latest and greatest packages. However, Ubuntu has generally "just worked" in a desktop setting. Anyone with Ubuntu experience tried Squeeze as a desktop OS yet? How does it compare to Ubuntu?
