Ubuntu :: Login Window Missing On Startup

Aug 8, 2011

Upon booting this morning, my Ubuntu 11.04 install no longer shows the login window at startup. The background is still there, as well as the on-screen keyboard I have set to appear at startup. tty1-6 all work just fine, although they they dont automatically connect to wifi so i have to go wired (or learn how to connect to wifi via tty1) if i need to use the internet for this. Before this issue popped up, I had tried out xmonad and upon switching back to compiz, I have to run "compiz --replace" every time I log in which may have something to do with this problem. I also installed and uninstalled gnome 3 before that, so I may have broken something with all that.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unplanned Visits To Login Window - Taken To Login Screen Three Times

Aug 18, 2010

I have used Ubuntu since 7-4; I now have 10.4. However, in the last week I have been taken to the login screen three times. This could be potentially calamitous. Ctrl+Alt +Backspace have by default been disable since 9-4. There is no way I am pressing atl+Prtscr +K. I wonder if there is a new zap command in 10.4, and if so, how to disable it. I have never found the need to go back back to the login window. I am generally using the command line when doing this.

Ubuntu :: Appearence Window Pops Up At Startup / Stop It To Do So?

Feb 4, 2011

I am fairly used to Ubuntu, and i decided to try and change my login background (10.10) using the code:

sudo cp /usr/share/applications/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop /usr/share/gdm/autostart/loginwindow,


sudo unlink /usr/share/gdm/autostart/loginwindow/gdm-simple-greeter.desktop

i later realized what i did and i tried to unlink the gnome-appearance-properties.desktop but no luck.

is there any way to stop the appearance properties from popping up at login, and to reinstall the gdm-simple-greeter.desktop ?

Ubuntu :: Conky At Startup - Has Wrong Window Setting

May 17, 2011

I have conky running a simple script on my Ubuntu 11.04 install. Running conky from using ALT-F2 is fine, but I have have conky added to the startup list, and when it runs from this, the conky window is different (ie not integrated with desktop layer). It has some shadowing around the edge and it seems to be on a layer other than the desktop. In addition to this, it stops running after a short while. I then run conky from ALT-F2 again and it's appears as I want, and stays there all day. I have included what I think is the relevant code below from my conkyrc. Has anyone had similar issues with a suitable way to resolve the problem?

own_window yes
own_window_transparent yes
own_window_type override
#own_window_type desktop
#own_window_type normal
own_window_type conky
own_window_class Conky

Ubuntu :: Missing Titlebar/window Border?

Apr 28, 2011

I just installed 11.04 and was installing everything I wanted fine till I got to installing compiz. It installed fine and ran for a few minutes before my window borders disappeared entirely (see the attached screenshot). I've since tried running metacity --replace, but this makes unity disappear, so I'm left with my open windows only.

PS; I heard that there can be issues with ATI/AMD. Alas, that is my exact setup. I am urged to install proprietary drivers, but they fail to download.

Ubuntu :: Missing Window Menu Icon With Some Themes?

Feb 5, 2010

When you go to System/Preferences/Appearance/ and the Appearance Preferences window displays the graphical representations of the themes, on most of them the gnome image-missing.png is displayed where the window menu icon (far-left on the titlebar) should be displayed. I never had this happen with Intrepid, but I do have this situation now on Jaunty. It's not just with new or added themes, it's the system's default installed themes as well. If you search around the net you'll see that this is a pretty common problem. Is a .png getting deleted, or is it something else in the process that is 'broken'?

Many of my apps display their proper menu window icons (like nautilus, ff3, etc.) - but others do not. I assume the ones that don't are trying to use a system or default icon rather than their own and that it is missing?Here are two screenshots I grabbed off of google to show you the difference.Missing...Not missing.

Ubuntu :: Appearence And Security Tabs Missing In StartUp-Manager Application

May 3, 2010

I installed Startup Manager but the appearance and security tabs are missing. I really want to be able to change the resolution of the splash screen cause it looks all pixelated and I want to have the splash screen that 9.10 had.

I tried reinstalling and restarting but the issue remains. I know its somewhat functional because I am able to change the seconds that grub takes but when I try to change the resolution of the purple ubuntu startup screen it looks like it tries to change it but it fails.

Fedora :: GNOME Window Settings - Missing In FC12?

Nov 18, 2009

noticed that Fedora 12 made some odd design decisions for default GNOME settings, and I couldn't locate the System->Preferences->Windows menu item to change them back. The design options I'm talking about:

* No icons in menus (System menu for instance has no icons, though there are icons under the Preferences and Administration sub-menus... the root System menu though has none)

* Icons on toolbars are configured so the label text appears to the right of the buttons, so this makes File Explorer in Nautilus look funny to me. I like the text appearing beneath the icons like it has always been up until now.

why the Windows configuration has been removed from Fedora 12? The control-center package provides the bins for all the preferences items except for gnome-window-settings; so is it upstream that did this? Anyway, I had to dig around in the gconf-editor to find where the window settings are kept so I could change them "manually", since the Windows tool is gone now. For anyone else who wants to know, it's under /desktop/gnome/interface in the gconf-editor (namely, keys toolbar_style, buttons_have_icons, and menus_have_icons are the ones I changed).

Fedora :: FC15 Gnome 3 Missing Window Selector?

When I minimise windows, or have several open, I've lost the window selector at the bottom to be able to flip between them. I can go to "activities" and then select them there, or I can ctl-tab to them but I used to like the window selector at the bottom. Anybody located the missing window selector ?

OpenSUSE :: Automatically Installed KDE 4.4 - Window Borders Missing

Jan 27, 2010

I recently did a fresh reinstall of opensuse 11.2 kde. After I installed it I updated the computer. However, when I returned to my computer after the update, I found the window borders to be missing and that I couldn't do anything with the desktop. I restarted, and lo and behold! I had KDE 4.4! Except I didn't want to install it. I perfectly like kde 4.3, and would probably prefer to move back to it until kde 4.4 becomes stable. Why did this happen? Had opensuse moved on to kde 4.4 already? Is there a way to get KDE 4.3 without reinstalling?

Fedora :: Compiz Missing Options And Window Update Errors?

Jan 8, 2010

I just installed the latest compiz as per leigh's instructions - nice, easy install!I notice that the snow application is missing. That was my favorite, but where has it gone??

How about floating windows above desktop cube? Dodge? In which upon selecting a window, the non-selected windows move around it to move it to the front.I also notice that many window updates are very poor. For example, in the compiz settings manager when I switch tabs, the window does not actually update unless I move it. I click on a tab and it looks just like the previous tab. If I move the mouse around, it will update the wind in blocks under the mouse, but not the whole window.And, it would appear that the standard compiz is still available from my desktop settings in KDE. Could I have failed to remove the original compiz?

CentOS 5 Server :: VNC - Black Screen - Missing Window Managers?

May 19, 2010

I have followed to the letter the wiki HowTo on setting up VNC and it works (sort of). I get a VNC session (doesn't matter whether I connect locally, over ssh, or using a vnc client), but all I get is the dreaded black screen with an xterm top left. If I then execute 'startkde' from within the xterm I get my normal desktop up. What I am however getting, is a new desktop session. And this happens each time I start a vnc session. I.e. I end up with a LOT of user sessions for my username. (As shown up by a 'users' cmd.) Consequently, each new time I start a vnc session, I get <x> (representing the previous nr of vnc logins) number of xterm windows + 1 appearing. I never get the logged on session.

However I've also noticed my .xsession-errors file filling up. I've googled around enough to get the impression that the reason I'm not getting the logged-on session up in vnc is due to a missing window manager. but haven't hit on the right google combo to fix the issue. I can believe there being a missing window manager due the following related story;About a year ago, I went to switch from KDE to Gnome. Decided I didn't want to and then set out to switch back to KDE. Each time I installed/uninstalled via the GUI "Add/Remove Software". Eventually I got back to KDE and it appeared to work since, so I left well enough alone.t is only now attempting to set up VNC, I have come across all these issues. I firmly believe VNC will work as expected if I can resove the apparent missing window manage issue.xstartup

Ubuntu :: No UI Login Prompt At Startup ?

Jun 25, 2010

I don't get a UI login prompt at startup and it makes a sound. I'm using 10.04, though this did happen to me in 9.0x as well. When I press ctrl-alt-F1, I login and sudo gdm stop and do sudo startx this seems to put me at root and there is an error with the applets and the panel does not load. "Killall gnome-panel" does not fix it.

If I simply do startx (w/o going to root), it goes to a black screen and if I press ctrl-alt-F1 it repeats "No protocol specified" until I get the error message xinit: Resource file temporary unavailable (errno 11): unable to connect to Xserver.
