Debian :: Xfce - NumLock Never Enabled At Login

Sep 23, 2010

In a debian squeeze box + Xfce the numlock is never enabled at login. Is there some daemon or some configuration to turn numlock on everytime I log into my Xfce session?

Debian Multimedia :: NumLock Option Disabled At Login

Jul 29, 2010

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?

Dec 19, 2009

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'm using openSuse 11.2 x64 w/ Kde 4.3.4 (updated from 4.3.1 w/ Kde repositories).

Debian Multimedia :: Xfce Panel Error Upon Login - Kiosk Mode

Mar 27, 2015

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

(xfce4-panel:896): xfce4-panel-CRITICAL **: panel-window.c:2698 (panel_window_thaw_autohide): expression 'window->autohide_block > 0' failed.

(process:1035): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed

Like I said I've made no changes other than updates and installing sudo.

Ubuntu :: Login To Xfce The Screen Goes Black - Flickers A Few Times Then It Brings Back To The Login Screen

Apr 12, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Workaround For Keyring When Auto-Login Is Enabled?

Apr 8, 2011

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

Ubuntu :: 11.04 - Login Screen Switches Over To XFCE?

May 10, 2011

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?

Slackware :: XFCE: Blank Screen On Login

Aug 17, 2010

When she wants to log into xfce, there is only a blank screen. The cursor shows, but there is no way to go any further. No panel, buttons or background.

However, she is able to log in using XDMPC from a local computer without a problem.

There are the processes active under both settings.

Direct login




What may have caused xfce not to load some modules on log in? How to fix it, to allow a normal login? How to prevent this problem in the future?

Slackware :: Xfce Keyboard Shortcuts - Not Set Up At Login With 13.1

Jul 5, 2010

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.

Ubuntu :: Switched From Gnome To XFCE - Can't Use Certificate Login To Ssh

Mar 5, 2010

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.

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.

Edit: Using (X)Ubuntu Karmic.

OpenSUSE Install :: Boot Goes To X-Windows Login Screen Instead Of Xfce?

May 12, 2011

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?
