Ubuntu :: No Sound - Affecting One User Profile?

Mar 20, 2010

I appear to be experiencing an annoying issue with my soundcard. As you can see from the images below, the soundcard is detected, but not when it comes to the "output". This is only affecting one user (my admin account is fine, as was a new user set up to test it).

I've looked at this page and have attempted reinstalling alsa, but to no success.

The results from aplay -l are:

Quote:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: ALC883 Analog [ALC883 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

[Code]....

"stevek" being the user that I'm having difficulty with. I suspect that I might need to recreate part of my user profile, but I'm not sure where start.

General :: Give An User 777 Permissions Without Affecting Others?

Aug 16, 2011

I have a user on my CentOS server who is not part of any group, just by themselves.

How can I give that user 777 permissions without affecting any other user on the server? I have chroot off, so I can see everything, but the user cannot write.

Do I use chown?

General :: Password Policy Affecting Root User ?

Aug 3, 2011

I am using pam module to set password policy in my SuSE linux machine. This is my /etc/pam.d/common-password file:

Now if root user tries to change the password of a normal user, giving the same password, it is throwing an error saying "Password has been already used. Choose another".

Example:
> passwd user1
> password1 (set successfully)
> passwd user1
> password1 (Password has been already used. Choose another)

This should not happen with the root user.

OpenSUSE Install :: Recreate A User Profile / Home Dir For An Existing User A/c?

Feb 16, 2010

what is the correct way/procedure to re-create a user home directory. For instance, on a Mac/Windows machine, i would just rename the existing user profile [home dir], and then just log back in as the user - job done. On OpenSuse/Linux, it seems it does not work that way..?! When i try to rename my home folder to say me.old via root, and log back in as me, i get all kinds of errors. Opensuse does create a new home dir, but it appears not properly.

General :: Login As Other User Using Shell Doesn't Load The Profile For That User?

Dec 11, 2009

I am using the sudo command to log on locally as another user by the following command:

sudo -u theotheruser -s
or
sudo -u theotheruser sh

As I see it, this initiates a new shell with the mentioned other user.However, this doesn't load that users profile from his home directory.Is there a way to automatically read the users profile when login in with selected command? I am mostely interested in getting a working prompt when logged in.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Login - Error "no Profile For The User Can Be Found And It Couldnt Create Per-user Gnome Configuration Directory"

Aug 8, 2010

I have a network set up that has been working for around a year with no problems but has now developed a login problem. The system was set up with a main server with all users on it and another PC located elsewhere that people could log onto using there personal login and password that then gained access to the account on the main server. This remote PC has now got the problem. When you try to log onto an account it comes up with the message "your session has lasted less than 10 seconds. If you have not logged out yourself this could mean there is a installation problem or that you are out of disk space."

Error message says that no profile for the user can be found and it couldnt create per-user gnome configuration directory. I can log on as root onto the remote PC as it is obviously a local account but all the account on the main server are not accessible. From the root account I can see that the connection to the server is OK and I can actually log into the accounts on the server using the failsafe session so the physical network is OK.

I never built or designed this set up and to be honest I normally work with windows so its all a bit strange to me. Both PC's run Centos 5. I have checked the messages log and there doesnt seem to be any indication of a problem. Just that it stopped connecting from the remote PC. The accounts are all active on the main server itself and have no problems being accessed.

Ubuntu :: Can Use Same User Profile Between GNOME And KDE?

Jul 7, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu with GNOME for the past few years and I'm looking at possibly switching to the KDE-based Kubuntu. I know I can have both DE's on my system and even found a tutorial on the Psychocats site for setting it up, but I have a question for the KDE gurus here. Can I safely use the same user profile between both GNOME and KDE or should I set up a new user for working in KDE? I haven't seen anything saying I can't but I really don't want to hose my GNOME settings in case I end up not liking KDE enough to use it on a daily basis.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: No Sound In Normal Profile?

Feb 12, 2010

I have no sound in normal profile but when I log in to the root account I DO have sound using say Banshee, kaffeine. In other words it is not a hardware malfunction or not detected. I am sure it has to do with some rights (permissions) for the peripherals that the user or profile may not have.

I tried everything in terms of sound level etc.

Ubuntu Networking :: Admin Profile Can Access Websites While Standard User Cannot

Apr 20, 2011

First off, since this seems like a networking issue I put it here, but if it should be somewhere else, the powers that be should definitely move it over.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 on Dell Presario M2000 I have made sure that all updates have been done.

As the subject states, the admin account (mine which I'm posting to the forum with right now) can access the internet and see webpages. The user account on this laptop (my underaged sister who my parents don't want full access to the computer) will not access any webpages, it just continually looks like its loading.

I have made sure the wireless card drivers are installed and activated.

Also, I ran iwconfig and ifconfig and here are their results

p { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } Results of iwconfig
lo no wireless extensions.
eth0 no wireless extensions.
wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:"myqwest4137"

[Code]....

These were both run from the user account. At this point it looks like its connecting to the internet through the wireless card as I was also able to run the update manager through the user account and have it download the updates (after putting in my admin password of course).

Fedora :: Missing 5.1 Surround Profile In Sound Preferences?

Oct 26, 2010

I'm trying to get 5.1 surround sound working on my Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop running Fedora 13 (64 bit), but there is no option for it under "Sound Preferences - Hardware - Profile". There is an option for "Analog Surround 4.0 Output", which does as it says and uses four of the speakers (front and rear left and right) correctly (and the subwoofer as well I think, though not sure if this is done correctly).Running "aplay -L" gives the following:

Quote:
default
Default
frontARD=Intel,DEV=0
HDA Intel, STAC92xx Analog
Front speakers
surround40ARD=Intel,DEV=0

[Code]...

it looks like it should be possible to set 5.1 surround sound (i.e. I don't think it's a driver issue).Though running "speaker-test -c 6" doesn't quite work as it should - it outputs via the subwoofer on "Center" and doesn't produce any sound on "LFE". But to start with at least - is there a way of manually forcing "Analog Surround 5.1 Output" to be a choice under "Sound Preferences"?

Programming :: Finding The Username Of A User Who Has Logged In (roaming Profile)

Mar 14, 2011

I want to be able to create a php webpage that will show the logged in users files and how full their home directory is (roaming profiles). The php side isn't a problem....the problem is how do i determine the username of the user who is logged into Linux not the webpage itself?

What i want is when the user opens this page, it knows who they are already. I have seen this done on an intranet at work (don't know what OS it is running on tho) where I login to the network, view the page and it says my name.

CentOS 5 :: Gnome-login Configuration - Restore User Profile?

Nov 20, 2009

Last night I started my computer and loaded my CentOS 5.2 partition (Windows 7 on the other partition). I was able to login to my account, but was given a gnome error that the panel buttons (i.e. weather, cpu monitor etc) could not be loaded. I then went to restart the computer (probably not the smartest thing to do) and was given some file errors upon shutdown that were related to /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00. After restart I was taken to a shell and ran fsck manually. It seemed to find a lot of bad blocks, so I repaired the /dev/VolGroup00 system and restarted. At this point CentOS seemed to boot normally, but upon loading of the login screen I get the error: Configuration not correct The configuration file contains an invalid command line for the login dialog, so running the default command. Please fix your configuration.

I cannot even log in as root. I get the error /usr/bin/gnome-session: error while loading shared libraries: libgnome-desktop-2.so.2: cannot open shared objects file: no such file or directory. I then went to a shell and ran: sudo yum install libgnome-desktop-2.so.2, but the package was already installed and up to date, so there was nothing to do. I am therefore stuck at this login screen with pull-down menus and tabs where I can change the configuration, add/remove users etc. So, my question is this: How do I restore my user profile so I can login....and if anyone has some insight, what caused this to happen in the first place? I should also mention, this all happened after plugging the computer into a new internet connection. No clue if that's even relevant.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lucid 10.04 No Sound As Normal User / But Sound OK As Root

I've got a custom compiled kernel, just built on Lucid 10.04 from the kernel sources.System works fine, except for sound.When I log in as normal user and try to play a wav file using.The sound file is being played, but I hear no sound.However, when I do "sudo -s" and become root, execute the same mplayer command then I can hear the sound.My Sound preferences shows no input device and only "Dummy Output" as output device.On the generic kernel as came with the Lucid 10.04 CD, sound preferences shows different devices.The strange thing is: when I compiled my custom kernel, I changed nothing to the sound options in the kernel config file.

Ubuntu :: Redirect Sound Output From User A To User B ?

Apr 30, 2011

I'm running a browser (google-chrome) as a different user.

To achieve this, I do the following:

Code:
$ sudo xhost +

Then run the command you want as the other user:

Code:
$ sudo -i -u <username> /opt/google/chrome/chrome

Then when I'm done browsing, I do:

Code:
$ sudo xhost -

[Code]....

Instead of doing pkill pulse, is there any way to redirect the sound output (Flash Player) from <browser user> to <current gnome user>, so I don't have to pkill the sound daemon of the current user ?

Ubuntu :: Get Rid Of GRUB Without Adversely Affecting Install?

Mar 6, 2010

Goal - have Ubuntu on one HDD and Win 7 on another. Sub-Goal - get rid of GRUB without adversely affecting Ubuntu install .I have three HDD's on my system; one contains Win 7 Pro (no complaints, love it), one is for storage (NTFS) and the third has Ubuntu on it (aside from the wireless issues and DVD playback issues, I love it as well).

All three drives are internal, but the Ubuntu drive is a special case. It's installed in a cradle that resides in an external bay. The Ubuntu drive can be turned on and off at will. I don't need GRUB (which will only confuse my fair lady).

So, if I run Win 7 recovery and "repair" the mbr, what will that do to the Ubuntu drive (which will be set as the first boot device in BIOS)? Will it boot per normal when the cradle is powered up, or will it be looking for GRUB?
