Ubuntu :: Get Command Line Login Screen After Graphics Card Update
Apr 30, 2011
I installed this graphics card update in kubuntu 11.04 [URL].... And when now kubuntu boots to a command line interface login screen I don't mind reinstalling to fix it, i would just like to install the latest version of the graphics card driver. I've tried twice with the same results, how i can fix it?
i don't know what this os want from me one moment everything is fine the next it's not first of all it started asking me to choose resolution on startup it said undefined b31 and i have to press enter then 366 for 1024x1280 32 bit how can i fix this problem how can i define 366 resoultion as default and how can i update the screen card driver for 10.1 i have ati hd 3650 agp card. and by the way what are the cool things i can do with graphics here except the rottaing windows.
I have used the below command to do that successfully for the previous version of ububunt, but this time I failed to do that with Ubuntu 9.10. I know I can do that manually by "sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop" command. I try to change the name of /etc/init.d/gdm files, but the problem still exist.m"sudo update-rc.d -f gdm remove"
is there a way to change the gdm login screen (either the background image or the text in the login window) from the command line?i'd like to check several things at boot and report that on the gdm login screnn.
Cutting a long story short (my machine won't allow me to login without the proprietary fglrx driver installed), how do you install the fglrx driver in Natty, from the console? he following commands have been suggestedbut haven't worked:
and i think i have intel 915 graphics chipset or something....
but now to the point. i had to make a fresh install on my computer. Before that it was working fine. I used a live usb for the installation process. there no GUI came up but i used yast2 to install the live usb. installation went smoothly with no hiccups....i restarted the computer and selected open SUSE 11.2 in the boot menu.
but after booting it again comes to this dark screen with a lot green 'dones' and then finally at the bottom i have my login space....so no desktop.
I've just installed ubuntu 10.10 on my desktop system. it worked fine with my 5770 but when using my gtx 460 it has a crashing problem. After roughly 30 secs running the screen has a red cast and a grid pattern to the bottom right of the mouse. Need directions to solve this such as new drivers or an exact sequence etc as i've only got 30 secs to completee process before it freezes. Specific graphics card is a gainward gtx 460 GLH too btw
I have a problem with starting ubuntu 10.10, I changed my graphics card from an ATI card to a Nivida card a week or so ago (Machine has dual boot). I've sort out the windows install, but cant get into ubuntu to update the drivers. It boots as far as console but just leaves me with the text screen. How do I update the drivers from there or get a basic console screen to come up so I can update?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on what used to be a windows vista. I bought me a new graphics card today so that I could run dual screen (GeForce210). I saw a guide at [URL] and I followed it.
I typed: sudo apt-get install nvidia-current then I restarted my computer, once again as instructed I typed: sudo nvidia-xconfig then logged out as instructed...
After I logged out the screen went black and I was not able to login. So I restarted my computer. Now when I turn on my computer I am getting this error and it's stopping at it.
fsck from util-linux-n/g 2.17.2 /dev/sda1: clean, 255658/294092280 files, 5031534/117616640 blocks *starting apparmor profiles Skipping profile in /etc/apparmor.d/disable: usr.bin.firefox *setting sensors limits Starting GNUstep distributed object mapper: start-stop-daemon: unable to stat /usr/bin/gdomap/ (no such file or directory) speech-dispatcher disabled: edit /etc/default/speech-dispatcher *starting the winbind daemon winbind
It stops on this screen. I do not want to wipe it but I cannot get it started. I do have an external hard drive and at the moment I am using my Ubuntu disc to "try Ubuntu" I was going to try backing up everything I have but it will not let me access root because I am not logged on to that user, is there anything I can do to get pass this? I've called around and no one is willing to work on my computer since it is now running on Ubuntu 10.10
I've got an HP ThinClient that my computer dumped in the recycling pile. I swapped out the ATA 1-gig flash drive, and replaced it with a 60 gig ATA hard drive. I installed Ubuntu on it through a flash-drive, and everything comes up just fine. When I boot up the computer, I get the ubuntu screen, it comes to the login, I select my username and enter my password. I hear the little jingle music, and then the computers graphics get messed up. I still see the mouse, and it appears as though I'm opening windows, but they come up really as just screwed up boxes that are black or other colors and the graphics get all distorted.
I just figured out how to get into the GRUB menu, and I was able to boot in reduced graphics mode. verything seems to be in 16 colors, but I can actually log in now and see everything! (really cool). Just to give an update, I can log into the computer using rescue mode, and I can do everything on the computer that I want to in 16-color mode or whatever that mode is. As soon as I reboot in the normal mode, the graphics mess up as SOON as I log in.
I was trying to get the package ready to install my Graphics card to the new update. This is the problem that I am having.
Code: Problem: nothing provides kernel-devel = 2.6.35-21 needed by kernel-syms-2.6.35-21.1.x86_64 Solution 1: do not install kernel-syms-2.6.35-21.1.x86_64 Solution 2: break kernel-syms by ignoring some of its dependencies Choose from above solutions by number or cancel [1/2/c] (c): c Now the vanilla kernel is 2.6.35-21 were as the "default" opensuse one is 2.6.35-20. I have googled and told opensuse download search engine to look for the 2.6.35-20. I cannot find it at all.
If I upgraded to the vanilla kernel without the opensuse patches would it make my machine unstable? Or can I tell it to break some of the dependencies?
When I start ubuntu I get a black screen, I can't do anything, this started when I installed the new driver for my graphics card. I don't know what to do. I have a i7 core (64-bit) and nvidia GTX 260 (twice).
Just fitted an Inno3D (I-7300LE-G4E3) graphics card and I get a distorted boot up screen, a virtually unreadble boot menu (lots of extra white bits all over the screen) and when the system is booting the black screen with "booting from .." and the underscore at the end, is covered with white commas (?!), then the login screen pops up for a fraction of a second, then get a blank screen and no signal-cant get anything after this (or from the vga port on the pc)-I ve tried logging in even though I cant see anything, but no music , nothing.
Thought I might have to download drievers AFTER I d installed it, but as I had this problem, I removed it and tried to download driers before installation. Not sure which of the 4 to try, but tried 2 and neither works-GDebi is offered as an app to open them but nothing happens, nothing happens if I just click on them and when I try and install them from a terminal with the script from the nVidia site, it says unable to open them.
I'm using an Intel Q45 graphic card, VGA and HDMI. I have two monitors and both work with Win7, splitting nicely. However in Suse it doesn't find the second monitor, the one on the HDMI port. However Suse does find that there is a HDMI port it could use. It's just not set up to have a screen attached to it.Xinerama won't work. I tried it despite the fact that it shouldn't I have tried numerous xorg.conf setting according to a number of sites that were very helpful and very thorough. I tried to modify their advice but it simply didn't work out for me.It seems like the screen is simply not acknowledged within the system for some reason. I'm running OpenSUSE 11.2 with KDE4.4, factory and my other systems pick up the screen without a hitch. My home system did the same with a HDMI connection so if anyone can point me in the right direction or even better
I have an Artigo A1100 which has the Chrome9 video. When I boot up the system on the Artigo I see the initial boot sequence, the Ubuntu logo and then when it is about to go to the desktop login screen the video goes completely scrambled. I can type in my login and password and I see the screen change as if it has logged in, but it is completely scrambled.
It almost reminds me of the problems old tv's had when the screen would start flipping because it wasn't dialed in just right. If I hit ALT+CTRL+F1 it will go to the command line interface and everything looks fine. it is the newest release of Ubuntu I downloaded yesterday and I know it works because I installed to a USB drive and everything works just fine when I boot off the drive using another computer of mine.
I'm using a Gateway LT3103u running a dual boot of Win 7 and Ubuntu 10.10 (separate partitions) and ever since I've started using Ubuntu (last October) I've had persistent graphic card problems.
My graphics card is the ATI Radeon X1270.
Right now I can't use any visual effects because of I do the screen spazzes out and becomes unusable. This isn't a big deal for me since I don't use them but I figured it's relevant to the problem.
Even with visual effects off I still have problems and at times parts of the menu will stay on the screen in a little box which covers any windows that open beneath it. The only way to get rid of it is to turn visual effects on so the screen resets then hit use previous settings.
I decided to dual boot install Ubuntu with my Windows 7. After a lot of hair pulling, i finally managed to boot the live cd environment with "nomodeset". From there i installed ubuntu. When it finished installing, i booted to the new ubuntu install only to be presented with a command line login. If i change the boot line from "quiet splash" to "nomodeset", i can coax ubuntu to boot in low graphics mode. However this is not a permanent fix, and doing so causes a 2 inch offest of the screen on the right hand side. Only the have the missing 2 inches appear on the left side. If from the "Ubuntu is running in low graphics mode" message, i select "console login", and type "startx" i just comes out with "X Server Fatal error- No Screens found". I also tried:
But it still didn't help. I'm running out if ideas here, can anyone point me in the right direction?
This is a cd that i got free from Canonical themselves. It's Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and I have Intel Integrated Graphics.
I've been using ubuntu on a new desktop for a couple of months, but i had an old HP that was given to me in my basement. It has 384Mb of ram, and thats because i had a 256Mb stick laying around. I installed debian becuase it is more suited for older hardware (at least from what I've read). It installed fine, but it boots to a blank screen, and pressing ctrl+alt+F2 bring me to the command line. I checked /etc/X11/xorg.conf to change the driver to vesa, to find out my video card isn't even shown. I ran lspci and I found that it says my graphics card is Intel Corporation 82810E DC-133 (CGC) Chipset graphics controller (rev3) In the device section of xorg.conf, it merly says Identifier"Configured Video Device"
I tried installing 10.04 via Wubi on a friend's notebook and have hit problems with the display. The installation seemed to proceed OK (took ages to download / install - left it running overnight) until it came to boot to Ubuntu. The GRUB menu appears OK, but choosing Ubuntu leads to a blank screen with some icons at the bottom, which is displayed for a few seconds, then the (login?) screen just shows rolling display, like an out-of-tune analogue TV. I suspect that I need a graphics driver or something? The notebook is a logiQ notebook, with 128MB SiS Mirage-3 graphics.
Few day back I have installed fedora 15 in my system with gnome desktop environment. when i was using fedora 11 I used to login via command line by changing the /etc/inittab from run level 5 to run level 3 . once if i login when ever i need GUI, simply i will type startx command , but when i tried to change the runlevel in fedora 15 , It was confusing to me , there is no 1,2,3 is there . how can i change to command mode login in fedora 15..?
I am using debian 5.04(base) + lxde. I am using gdm to login. I want to change the gdm to commandline login only, which similar to (ctrl +alt + f2) but whenever computer restart, it boot into gdm. what is the file to change the boot level?
I have Fedora 14 with minimal installation (without graphical interface and so on) and the application I've been working needs to be initialized on boot up. So, I need to disable the login prompt (and password) by command line. How can I do it? I've seen by GUI, but with command line nothing...
I was expecting a gnome window login prompt after installation was done. Instead I am getting a command line login prompt.Am I right expecting a X-Windows login prompt?I login successfully, but I am dropped into a shell (bash) instead of a gnome desktop.
The hardware I am installing on: Intel Core 2 Duo 2 GB Ram 137 GB HD Radeon X1300/X1550 Series Monitor - Dell E156FP (max res 1024x768 60 Hz)
I have a netbook and the wireless card on it works fine. Whenever I wake it up after suspending for couple of hours, it seems like the wireless card is not awaking or the drivers are not working properly because I do not see any wireless networks after waking it up(for example in Wicd). If I do fresh restart, the wireless and wireless networks come back at the same place. So I am wondering if it is possible to restart the wireless card or the driver without restarting my netbook
I installed a command-line version of Ubuntu 10.04 using the Alternate CD. The machine was wiped, and I used most of the default settings.
I used a thirteen character user id which consisted of mixed case letters and numbers, and an eighteen character password that contains mixed case letters and numbers and a # sign.
When I rebooted, the command-line login would not accept my password. I assumed I had somehow made a mistake, and just wiped the machine again and reinstalled. This time I was very careful with the user name/pw.
Again, the command-line login did not accept my password!
On a hunch, I took an old Ubuntu 7.10 Alternate CD and erased the machine again. I installed a command-line version of Ubuntu. AGAIN --- it will not accept my password even though I'm 100% sure it is correct.
i am having dell inspiron 1540 laptop installed with ubuntu 10.04 (updated). i wanted to install LAMP(Linux,Apache,MySQL,PHP) for software development purpose.
but after restarting the system, following things occured:-Message box appears saying "Ubuntu is running in low-graphics mode" Your screen, graphics card and input device setting could not be detected... OK
Then i get prompt saying what would you like to do ?Run ubuntu in low-graphics mode for just one session. i get a message starting display in one minute.....nothing happens ... i switch to text mode by pressing escape. There is a brown color star before: Speech dispacher configured for user sessions.on battery state there is a infinte loop i.e. no response and system just hangs there...startx at text mode makes the screen blank...
Please tell which part of '/var/log/Xorg.0.log' sholud be scanned to find required information.
i am a new to ubuntu How to solve this problem i donot have internet connection and its important that i get it repaired as soon as possible....essential to get it running else i will be forced to goto Windows...
I have installed opensuse on VirutalBox , during installation I said "yes" to autologin as normal user.After installation and restart , it shows follwing message "Logging in Laks ...Cannot enter home directory . using /"I can login as single user by passing "single " in grub.
I have an installation of Maverick using command line only. It switches the monitor to standby after only about 5 minutes. Previous Ubuntu server and command line only versions do this too. Does anybody know where the setting is to change or disable this behavior? Perhaps something to do with ACPI?
I made a live USB memory stick / pendrive with Ubuntu netbook remix 10.04 using my desktop computer. I want to install / update my netbook that has no network function yet. I booted the desktop with the pendrive & ran update manager. I want to update the kernel so I will have the driver that will operate my netbook ethernet.Acer AOD260 has Ethernet Controller: AR8151 v1.1 Fast Ethernet, Atheros Communications & Network Controller: Broadcom 4727 (rev 01)and will not work from the current release of 10.04 (too new) but there are supposed to be drivers in the newer kernels.
Running Update Manager I get a box labeled "Debconf on ubuntu" & says "Configuring grub-pc". There is an entry box that says "linux command line:" & is empty. When I press the help button I get the message "The following Linux command line was extracted from /etc/default/grub of the 'kopt' parameter in GRUB Legacy's menu.lst. Please verify that is correct, and modify it if necessary.The installer is hanging, Preconfiguring packages ..., probably waiting for a response, but I have no idea what to do.
On Ubuntu Desktop editions, there is a GUI application which allows easily changing to a different server. It can even find out how one is the fastest update server.Is there a corresponding command line tool available to do this? Because I'm using the Server edition without GUI. I hate to manually edit /etc/apt/source.list.
I recently updated, and now when I boot it only goes as far as grub command line. There is no grub menu. The computer is a Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop with only Ubuntu installed -- no dual boot, no weird partition schemes. Originally installed Ubuntu 09.04 on this computer, upgraded a couple times and it currently has (had) 10.04.1 LTS running. The update should have upgraded from kernel 2.6.32-23 to 2.6.32-24. I can boot with a live CD and mount the hard drive. The drive seems fine, so it appears to be simply a grub config issue. I have to boot with live cd to get online to check for potential solutions. So I'm taking some notes on how to use grub.
Some while back, I did some updates and suddenly the console had no login prompt. I didn't have time to fuss with it at the time, so I just let it go. Now it's becoming more of an issue and I need to fix it. And, of course, I can't remember what I did, or even if I noticed it at the time (as I don't work from the console much). Everything but the login prompt has been working fine (it's mostly a web server). I can log in via an SSH client no problem (and run the GUI desktop via an SSH tunneled X-Server, but it's very clunky).
The GUI login wasn't coming up (just getting a plain red background) so I thought I'd just skip the GUI and have it boot up to run-level 3 (as I only use the GUI occasionally anyway)--well, I've got the same problem: no command line login prompt either.
The console shows all the services starting up (lots of [ OK ] entries) and concludes with: Code: Notice: nsd.tcl: finished reading config file.I couldn't find anything related to "nsd.ctl" (note misspelling--should be nsd.tcl) on linxuquestion.org or the web. NSD is the name of an open source DNS server, but it's not installed (as far as yum can tell).I do have Xen installed on the box and the messages before the final one relate to Xen, but they have the [ OK ] out there on the right side so I don't know that it could have anything to do with this.
Basically, I need a command line solution for sending an HTTP POST request essentially clicking on a button. For future reference, it'd be helpful to know how to send a POST request with, say, a username and password if I ever find myself in that situation in another hotel or airport.
