OpenSUSE :: Setting Of New Login Screen For Kde Dysfunctional?
Aug 9, 2011
yesterday I met a colleague on the floor, who told me that after looking at the jailhouse theme of Suse 11.4 (I guess that'sa kind of curtain? it really is remarkably ugly) he switched to Ubuntu. So well, I won't go that far, but now I thought, let'sswitch the login-screen for something better.Okay, I go to System Settings / System Administration / Login Screen, tab Theme.Alright, there are six themes there, but I don't like them. Great, there is "Get New Theme"!Okay, I get one. But the list of themes doesn't change --- I would have expected, that the newtheme would now be automatically included. So well, a bit stupid, but apparently it wants youto explicitly include it: so I click "Install new theme" --- unfortunately, then there is no hintwhere the themes have been stored! Okay, I download another one, hoping that during thatprocess I will be told what happens. Alas, there was a chance for such enlightenment with KDE3.
but likely no longer with KDE4 (which seems to go the Windows route, hiding everything; with thelittle difference that under Windows the basic things actually work). So no hint where it stores theselogin themes. Okay, I search the Internet, find various possibilities, /usr, /etc, and ~/.kde, ~/.kde4, butin none of them can I find these themes! (I found the desktop themes, and I found the six themes which were already there,but not the new themes).So could somebody tell my where KDE hides the newly downloaded themes?
By the way, the information under "Help" seems either irrelevant or outdated (the directories mentionedseem false anyway).In general, I think most(!) KDE problems would be solved if KDE would be more "verbose", enlighten the userabout its actions (while on the other hand, at least KDE4 seems to have the goal of "never say anything").Thanks for your attentionFrustrated Oliver(Since September 2010 I try to become friends with KDE4, where I was really satisfied with KDE3.
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.
I have installed VirtualBox and setup a Windows Vista host, initially with a .vdi of 10gb. That filled up quickly, so I added another 20gb secondary partition, after first trying to allocate a .vdi to a SCSI controller. Configured the drive in Windows (Computer Management), and all seemed ok. I shutdown VB, and rebooted my Linux host (openSuse 11.3). Now I keep bouncing back to the login screen, and can't login to Linux KDE, but can login to a console.I do have the following info:
I did see a message before, that I don't see anymore, that said it could not start NFS services due to missing entry in fstab. Another I'm seeing now is it couldn't start the avahi-daemon, no space left on device. This is odd, since I have a 200GB drive, with half of it left, only max 30GB set to VB. Here's my df -k output:
/dev/sda6 Use% is 100% devtmpfs Use% is 1% tmpfs Use% is 1% /dev/sda7 Use% is 46%
So root "/" is mounted on /dev/sda6, which looks like it could be a problem, but why would this suddenly be a problem after working with VirtualBox? Could this be a matter of just freeing up space on /dev/sda6? Like the /tmp folder that's under "/"?
I have in System-->Administraytion-->Login Screen setting checked 'Log as Azyx automatically' so then the computer boot up I don't need to type password.But when my laptop have going to suspend and wakeup I have to type my login password. How do I change so I don't need to do that?
My OpenSUSE 11.2 is working fine as samba server, no problems, but I have a problem with KDM.My default init runlevel is set to 5 and every time I try to login at KDM (KDE4), the monitor goes black and returns to the login screen.If I hit Ctrl+Alt+F1 to go to console and start /usr/sbin/console-kit-daemon manually, press Ctrl+Alt+F7 to return to KDM login, everything is fine.What do I have to do to fix this issue?
been using 11.2 with KDE on a Sony laptop since 11.2 was released always ran perfect suddenly I can't login, I get to the login screen type in password it begins to load my desktop, then fails and dumps me back to the login screen I can login as root, all my stuff is there (under /home/me) I tried changing my password, no luck I went to run level 3 and there I can login just fine seems to be something with my KDE profile any ideas where I might find some error messages telling me what's going on?
this seemed to happen when I was running "blender" and making the machine do some heavy number crunching, it actually locked up.
I want, when I boot up, to load and log-in automatically a default user. I get a login in screen with the option to login as root, I do not want this. How do disable the option to login to X as root and just load as me/default user?
Every account every option I try. when I login, it just cycles back to the login screen. I have attempted to do a repair install, but to no avail. it happens when I try to boot normally or if I boot into failsafe.
The graphical login screen is loaded just fine. Though very shortly after (a moment after the loading screen could be seen) it crashes back to the graphical login. And that happens no matter what wm I'm trying - gnome, kde3, kde4, e16, e17, even twm.
It happened after the logout after a zypper up yesterday morning. Looking through the list of what packages were upgraded (two machines, both last zypper up'ed last Sunday, checked on the second one after the problem with the first one), the only packages which might be responsible are kwin or qt4.
The graphics card seems to be fine (NVidia 9600), as it happens whether or not I use nv or the propietary driver. Also tried reinstalling it from the repo as well as using the binary blob from NVidia. Has been tested on Windows and games are running fine there, so it shouldn't be the card.
What is strange, is that when calling upon sax2 -r from runlevel three, the initial screen loads nicely, but sax2 crashes back to the cli once one presses 'Change Configuration'. No error messages are being printed.
Any pointers on how I can narrow down the cause (and get it fixed)?
I installed opensuse11.4 few minutes back. The install was absolutely smooth. I have dual boot, Win Xp and 11.4 now. But for some reason I do not see the login screen but instead I see a green screen with squares and stripes. Login in the failsafe mode is successful. How do I fix it?
Also noticed the following,
1) Initially the splash screen picks up the right resolution 1024*768 and then it changes it to a higher resolution. This I think I can fix, because I had faced a similar problem with 11.3 as well.
Does anyone know of a good tutorial for setting up single sign-on/login sync over a pure Linux network without any AD boxes in it? I have read this can be achieved through LDAP+Kerberos+PAM...I have these installed on a server...the users and groups on the server is configured to use them and a client has been pointed toward the LDAP server and has Kerberos enabled and users and Groups set to use the LDAP server as a backend.
I expected to see the users and groups list from the server show up on my client, or at least be able to login on the client as one such user. Am I misunderstanding what I read or am I just probably misconfiguring everything? My ultimate goal is for my clients to authenticate against my server and not have to sign in again when using server resources (Samba shares etc.).
I have read that NFS and NIS are old technologies that are going by the wayside and that Samba, LDAP authentication and such are overall better and more secure...What are everyone's thoughts on this? My network is just a home network so security isnt really a big problem...im just trying to set it up like a corporation with my limited resources would for the practice and education of doing it.
Just finally got Ubuntu studio 9.10 ISO installed and i'm not able to use my keyboard after i log in to gnome. Well it let me log but why wont the keyboard log in with me? I very new with linux so i'm not sure where to start ,iv been searching google and found something about slow keys being activated ,i don't know if this feature could be the culprit or how to go about disabling it. I haven't tried to log in as a different user yet but will do to see if that works but it would be nice to know why this happens so i can prevent it.
I dont know were to begin to solve my problem and I have been googling for hours to get a hint without any success. I'm runnning a Counterstrike Server on my virtual openSuse server - I'm exploring so don't justify what I am hosting at the moment
I want to make it possible to gain access to the cstrike folde via a ftp login. But I really have no idea were to start. The server is also a webserver, where I can ass FTP accounts for my apache vhosts via plesk - but I dont think this is the solution of my problem, isn't it?
I usually use the default KDE desktop with a few changes. I deleted the bar the bottom of screen. I can't get those setting right. There's no undo function. I was able to recreate some things. I can't get the icons into right position. Also, I can't get the display for all programs or get the right wigits running . I need someone to walk me through it. Else, I'll just reinstall suse(11.3)
I just installed Suse 11.3 64bit on a new build. My video card is a nvidia gt240. I am using the default drivers. My monitor is a NEC 17" LCD.
When I boot up the screen resolution defaults to 1280x1024. I can go to applications>configure desktop>display and set it to 1024x768, which is my resolution of choice, and it works until I reboot or log out and log back in, then it resets to 1280x1024.
I would like to make 1024x768 the default so I don't have to keep changing it. Is there a way to do this? The output of xrandr looks like this:
$~> xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192 DVI-I-1 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 338mm x 270mm 1280x1024 60.0 + 1152x864 75.0 1024x768 75.1 70.1* 60.0
Is there something I can change to set a new default resolution?
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.
installation opensuse 11.3 and kde 4.4 after update to kde 4.6, work fine, but problem is login screen is low like 640x350...? i wanted to change from lowtion to high 1024x768?when i start opensuse and begin to login was low resolution and log in my user and it's low resolutiona dn i change screen from setting system (kde) after change high display is works fine and rebbot same low resolution for LOGIN MANAGER how i can change it??
i would like to change my login screen, but within the menu if i download a different one it does not show up in the list. Also, if i try to use one of the basic in the list, i still have the green standart login screen. Do i have to do it on a command level and if, where is it located? Wasn't able to find the location.
one of the things i like about linux is its highly configureable.so how does one change the login screen?i dont see a gdm mgr in suse 11.1,however i do see a gdm mgr in the pkgs,so do i nstall this?or is there another way?i went to installthis pkg and a screen came up saying there were dependancy issues.
when I try to startup the xserver in normal mode iget a message "Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 giving up. xinit: Resource temporaily unavailable (errno 11): unable to connect to X server xinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error."
I dont know what this means except that something does not work.
I use KDE with Compiz and Emerald.I just installed the Enlightenment window manager. The only way I seem to be able to choose it is by logging out of my KDE session and getting to that login screen and choosing from the list....then logging in again.Where do I change the setting so that the login screen comes up every time I boot up?
I have a desktop running Hardy and till friday it was running good. Today is monday and I guess it has got monday blues like I get every monday at work.Today I tried to start it as usual but it just refused to go further than login screen. I just can not login. It just hangs it there. I do not know what has gone wrong. I did not change anything since friday and no one else uses it. Theres nothing in logs that could give any idea. It just hangs without any reason and is still on the login screen for ever. It does ask my username and password but then it does not go further.But to my surprise I tried logging in with root and it gave me expected error that system administrator is not allowed to login from gnome.
I just installed the opensuse 11.2 64 bit version on my gateway md2614u.I am having sound problems. There is no sound for the internet (..... was the test) and the amarok audio will not play any mp3 files. The only sound that I can hear is the initial start up noise. Other than that there is no sound.
I would like to change the login screen of of my system running openSuse 11.3 GNOME... I have tried most of the methods suggested in various threads on the forum but still not sure what to do.I even tried running
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).
