Using squeeze here. Until recent updates to xserver, my numlock worked as expected, but now the damn thing won't stay on anymore. Numlockx is still broken as it's always been for me in that it turns the numlock on but not the led on the keybord. I'm using slim as a login manager which everytime it's updated they set the numlock option to disabled for whaterver reason, but then that doesn't work if I enable it anyway (why have it?). So what is it with debain/(Linux) and their obsession with disabled numlocks at login, I don't get it?
I want to have numlock always on in the log-in screen, but I can't get it to work - I always have to activate it manually. I've tried out System Settings > Keyboard > Numlock > Turn on both as normal user and as root, but it simply doesn't work. I'm using openSuse 11.2 x64 w/ Kde 4.3.4 (updated from 4.3.1 w/ Kde repositories).
I just completed a fresh install of the weekly jessie build (downloaded today). All I've done is install updates, add my username to sudoer list, and reboot. When I did, the xfce panel was not there. When I right clicked, Apps, Panel, it opened with an error that I cannot make changes unless I save my session and that it's in kiosk mode. After a logoff or reboot, it's still not there. I saw one thread asked for the output of /.xsession-errors, which I've done, and it doesn't look good... I'm just not sure how to fix:
Code: Select allopenConnection: connect: No such file or directory cannot connect to brltty at :0 /usr/bin/x-session-manager: X server already running on display :0 xfce4-session-Message: ssh-agent is already running; starting gpg-agent without ssh support
My last setup (years ago) ran fluxbox so because it was familiar I installed it as a secondary to xfce right off the bat. I download a lot of different stuff because I like to try out all the apps I can find but somewhere I broke something. I can still run fluxbox fine, but nither the Xubuntu nor Xfce sessions will run now. Last thing I remember changing was pulse audio(removed it for an experiment I was trying with jack audio), not sure if it is connected but when I try to login to xfce the screen goes black, flickers a few times then it brings me back to the login screen.
I tried failsafe but everytime I do my monitor gives me a "frequency out of range" error. I tried purging and reinstalling xubuntu desktop and xfce settings but I am thinking its my xorg config. My laptop is a Toshiba satellite M305D-s4830 with ATI Radeon 3100 mobile graphics card and I am running Xubuntu 10.10. Unfortunately I also broke the screen, so right now I am stuck with an external monitor till I get a new one.
I'm trying to find a workaround for the keyring requirement when auto-login is enabled.Here's my setup:I'm primarily using my Linux computer as a server, for Git, FUPPES, OpenVPN, etc. Because of this, I do everything remotely from another computer (Windows 7). Most tasks I need to do I perform through SSH, but sometimes I use VNC to see the desktop, since some things are just easier with a GUI.My problem is this: I have auto-login enabled, because of how I use the device. However, when it first boots up, I'm unable to connect with VNC unless I physically go to the computer and type my password into the keyring pop-upDoes anyone know of a way around this? Is there a way for me to input my password into the keyring through SSH, by invoking libpam-gnome-keyring somehow? I've tried to locate this application
I have installed the xubuntu-desktop on my ubuntu, it seems to work fine, but when I am asked to choose which windows management I want, i have gnome and other, but I 2 xfce which do not seem to be different, how do I remove one to clean my option menu of unecessary options.
I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 on my laptop. At work, we are beginning to tinker with running Ubuntu on our student systems (school district). The thing is, Unity and Gnome Shell are new enough that they are not considered right now as viable options to test in. That said, an alternative was needed that was quick on older systems yet very configurable. XFCE. So I installed XFCE on my Ubuntu machine. This way I can tinker with the interface as if I was a student but then I can bounce back to Unity which I do prefer for personal use. The thing is, the login screen switches over to XFCE's. Is there a way to get my regular Ubuntu login screen back?
Starting with Slackware 13.1, I am having trouble with keyboard application shortcuts in Xfce. Most of the time, they are not set up at login, for example Alt+F2 for Run prompt, and some custom ones. The fix each time is to kill the xfce4-settings-helper process, which somehow automatically restarts, and the keyboard shortcuts all work after that. But this is annoying.
Has anyone else seen this? I found this bug report which seems to match this problem. But there is no fix, and the bug report goes back to Aug 2009. [url]
I'm pretty sure Slackware 13.0 has the exact same version Xfce-4.6.1 but I never saw this problem under 13.0.
So I installed xubuntu-desktop and have been using XFCE as my desktop and everything's groovy except for one thing.
In Gnome, I created a certificate in order to allow me to login to my web host over SSH without requiring the SSH password (which is very long and complex, for good reason). It worked fine under Gnome but now in XFCE when I attempt to SSH to the server, my keyring password is not recognized.
Code: andrew@guardian:~$ ssh <hostname of server> Enter passphrase for key '/home/user/.ssh/id_dsa': Enter passphrase for key '/home/user/.ssh/id_dsa': Enter passphrase for key '/home/user/.ssh/id_dsa': *****@*******.net's password: (Note: I redacted the server name and username.)
A few weeks before switching to XFCE I changed my local username from user to andrew, which is why my home directory is called user, but it didn't break the keyring in Gnome.
How can I fix this? The certificate still works properly in PuTTY under Windows, so it's not the cert.
My default desktop environment is Xfce 4.7 (older machine). Monday I came back to work to discover a 17 GB log file in /var/log that ate up my root partition and gave me trouble running. I deleted it, which solved the problem EXCEPT that now when I boot, instead of the Xfce login prompt, I get an X-Windows login prompt. This takes me to a terminal (which apparently reads my .zshrc file), from which I can start an Xfce session by running xfce4-session. How can I get back to booting into the Xfce login screen?
I am trying to set up xfce so that I can be able to switch between multiple users. To do so I seem to need gdm. So I installed it from slackbuilds.org, but the login screen shows rectangles instead of text.
Just got a pretty fresh install of Debian/XFCE. Both monitors work out of the box on my 8400GS. I was unable to find an option to change it so I can span is as 1 work space instead of having them mirrored.
I just a newbie.i want to try customize my desktop.i found a website shown linux desktop very greatfull, like this :but i don't know how to start it.any expert guys please let me know the guiding for me to start this.
I recently installed Fedora 13 (64-bit). I am completely new to Linux. I want the NumLock key to be on upon booting into Fedora. I have tried turning that option on inside the BIOS but it appears that Fedora ignores it. Is there perhaps a way to do it within Fedora?
Like for instance, if I have Ubuntu Lucid Lynx installed with XFCE, and it has an applications made for XFCE. will the applications also work on say some other distro like, Wolvix, that is an XFCE-based distro~????
What I am trying to say is: Do applications that are made for XFCE, work on ANY distro that has XFCE installed?
In KDE 4.5.2 I can't find where to lock up NUMLOCK. How do you do to have numlock on all the time? I have /etc/sysconfig/hardware/keyboard/kbd-numlock already on yes. If I try to change it I have an error : kbd service is not started.
