Ubuntu Servers :: Restrict User Session Numbers And Allow Resuming Previous User Session?

Jun 30, 2010

I am currently in a project to set up an LTSP server with 10 thin clients. I am using Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic).

Installing server and booting clients are working fine. Now, according to the need, I have to restrict user session numbers and allow resuming previous user session.

I have achieved to do the first one, but still could not able to setup the second one. As per requirement, if some thin can have power failure, the same session should be restored back. I am confused here, if I need to focus on saving xsessions or saving gnome sessions. I am looking for a concrete solution as I am running out of time.

Ubuntu :: 10.10 - Unable To Login Or Start Session With Any User Account

Sep 1, 2011

Recently I deleted files from my root/share folder in an attempt to remove a program which had made the system virtually unusable. Upon reboot of the system I accessed the partition I had just edited and I found that I was unable to login using the login manager, every time I hit login it just returns me to the same screen displaying the message: unable to start session.

Debian Multimedia :: Can't Start GUI Session As User

Mar 29, 2016

I recently installed debian 8 stretch with xfce. Since the first time I boot, I have problem starting my X session: from lightdm I always attemped 2 or 3 times before it login (it returned me on lightdm prompt after a short splash screen).

Now it stopped working: the only way I can start xsession is running startx as root. When I try as user it starts the "splash" and return me to the tty with this error message:

Code: Select allServer terminated with error (1). Closing log file(EE)

This is my ~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log

Code: Select all[    27.703]

and this the .xsession-errors:

[Code] ...

I try to reconfigure Xorg but the Xorg -configure command result in another segmentation fault.

I think that the problem could be related with old configuration (when I install this version of debian I maintain the /home partition and my previous OS was debian 7 with xfce).

Debian :: Xfce-session Does Not Start After Boot?

Dec 15, 2010

This morning I did a minimal install of Debian to test out xfce and lxde, purely out of curiosity.I tried LXDE first. For various reasons I wasn't entirely pleased, so I removed it and installed xfce4 in a vanilla openbox session. Upon reboot, I was greeted with the CLI. I generated a new xorg.conf file to see if the transition to xfce had altered it, but was greeted with the CLI again after another reboot. I manually started X with 'startx' and noted that the xfce session manager was installed. The xdm session manager, however, was not.Installing xdm fixed the problem, kind of. I am now greeted with an xdm login screen rather than an xfce session login screen. What can I do to have xfce-session be my default login screen?

Software :: Start X On Boot Under A User Login On Ubuntu - No Gdm - Kdm Or Xdm

Jul 16, 2010

I'm trying to get rid of gnome as much as possible since I consider it bloated. I have everything according to my taste but when I boot I need to start x by hand (through xinit) and I would like it to start automatically.

So I created a script in /etc/init.d/ to do that. If I just execute xinit on the script it runs X as root (we all know that's highly not recommended), so I tried su - username -c "xinit" to no avail. However if I start another program, say rtorrent, like that (replacing xinit with rtorrent) it works perfectly.

What do I need to do start X under a username on login? I don't want a login manager just to do something which I am so close to do.

Debian :: Can't Login As Either Root Or User Following Upgrade

Sep 24, 2015

Since upgrading my Debian/unstable amd64 installation a few days back I can no longer log in as either root or user, whether to SDDM, via the console, or via ssh. When trying with the console, I can see the login message flash briefly on the screen, before the console resets itself.

I can boot into recovery mode, and examine log files. I enabled systemd debug logging and, amid reams of messages, these seem the most pertinent:

Sep 25 02:24:43 cooler systemd[1]: Received SIGCHLD from PID 937 (login).
Sep 25 02:24:43 cooler systemd[1]: Child 937 (login) died (code=killed, status=6/ABRT)

Debian Installation :: User Login Fails / Root Ok

May 26, 2015

Debian 8/Cinnamon fresh install. /home is being shared with two other OS's, Mint and openSUSE. At the login screen I enter my user name and password and the screen blacks for 1-2 seconds and comes back asking for user name and password. I can login as root. As root I can launch the Group & Users GUI and attempt to set the user's password, and pressing the 'change' button does nothing obvious.

I can set the user's password in a terminal, which reports success. I tried to switch users and login with the changed password and I get the same failure. If I try to login with the original password I get an incorrect password error, suggesting that the password is being processed properly and the problem is elsewhere.

On previous installs with Mate and the default desktop (Gnome) I didn't have this problem. So, the questions are: Is it Cinnamon? Is it an unlucky chance bad install? Config files are typically in /home, which is being shared with Mate and KDE, is this the problem?

Debian Configuration :: Can't Login With New User (useradd Command)

Sep 5, 2015

I created a new user with command useradd (as root) :

Code: Select alluseradd razer123

And then set a password with command passwd (as root):

Code: Select allpasswd razer123
No Error!

When I logged out and tried to login with new user, I coulden't! (even after restart!)

I looked into /etc/passwd :

Code: Select allcat /etc/passwd | grep razer123

result:

Code: Select allrazer123:x:1002:1002::/home/razer123:/bin/bash

There is no home folder in the path!

Debian Configuration :: User Login And Run Network-manager?

Feb 16, 2016

After fossicking around I can not find anything around that I can invoke in a terminal to configure settings in network-manager. The applet(?) on the task bar doesn't ask for a login, so options are grey/grayed out. The "program" in the applications menu is similarly grey/grayed out.

If it was a once off, then I suspect that it would be simple as login as root to start X, but I have a series of config files to edited each time of their initial use. also, there is the ongoing problem of vpn target switching.

woops; wheezy with xfce4 and everything is uptodate.

And do I have to reboot netbook into 'Recovery mode' for it? URL warns about possible system crash during changeover. That is highly unwanted!here [URL] ....

Ubuntu Servers :: Mounting Samba Shares On System Boot/user Login

Jun 28, 2011

I wrote a little script that will automatically mount two Samba shares to my home directory and I was wondering if a) You guys/gals had any input as to how I could improve on this script and b) Tell me how I would go about having this script automatically execute when I log on via SSH.

Code:

#!/bin/sh
mount -t smbfs -o username=Myuser,password=Thepassword //192.168.1.102/Data1 /home/user/Data1
mount -t smbfs -o username=Myuser,password=Thepassword //192.168.1.102/Data2 /home/user/Data2

Debian Installation :: User Password Rejected And Have To Login As Root

Oct 28, 2014

Suddenly Debian started rejecting my user pw and I have to login as root. Perhaps this is a coincidence, but this started when I re-booted after adding Russian keyboard layout in etc/default/keyboard. The Russian keyboard added successfully.

Being logged in as root, renewed the pw of my user account (actually assigned the same as wes previously), got confirmation the the pw has been changed. Reloaded. Yet it keeps complaining that the pw is wrong.

Server :: Cannot Login To FTP (proftpd) With A Single User On Debian Squeeze?

Jul 19, 2011

So I've been trying to get a single user to login to an FTP site I've created using proftpd and I haven't had much luck. So check this out: this only applies to one user, I can "su" to the user account so I know the password is set, and I am even able to SSH into the box as this user. This totally eliminates a bad/incorrect password and the server IS accepting connections on port 21 because I can FTP as other users. I've ruled out the client because I tried locally and using a command promptWinders but still no luck. This is what I'm seeing in the logs when I attempt to connect using an FTP client.

::ffff:192.168.1.118 UNKNOWN proftpd [18/Jul/2011:15:57:44 -0700] "USER crownftp" 331 -

Debian Multimedia :: SFTP Client Setup - User Based Login

Nov 22, 2010

I have setup SFTP and it is running without any problems. The problem I have is finding a client that supports key based logins through Linux. I do not want user based logins available and so far the solution works through my Windows machines using WinSCP. The only client I have found for Linux seems to be FileZilla but I have to convert my private key to the FileZilla format which removes the passphrase leaving it nice and insecure.

Debian Installation :: Unable To Login As Specific User - Machine Not Accepting Root Password

Jul 31, 2014

Having installed Debian 7 on an old machine from a Liinux Format Magazine DVD I was unable to log in as a specific user. I can login as root and use useradd etc but when I logout of root I still cannot login as a user and nor will the machine accept my root password. I have to shutdown and reboot to get back into root. I'm using O'Reilly's Linux Pocket Guide from 2004 for the commands. Could it be that things have changed?

Ubuntu :: Don't Let User Keep Session Going

Jun 3, 2010

In recent versions of ubuntu, the behavior of gdm and gnome is changed so that if a gnome user doesn't touch the mouse or keyboard for a while, the session is locked, and they have to type their password in order to get back in. I dislike this behavior, because on some of the machines I use and manage, people will walk away and not come back, and then there is no way to log them out. I can switch and log in as a different user, but the AWOL user's session is sitting there eating up resources until the machine is rebooted. I prefer the old behavior, with no locking. Is there any way to get the old behavior back? I've looked through the gdm.conf docs, but can't seem to find anything relevant. This actually seems more like a gnome issue than a gdm issue. I think what's changed is that gnome now invokes a screensaver after a certain amount of time, and that screensaver locks the session.

OpenSUSE :: KDE 4.3.5 - Switching User Session

Jul 10, 2010

I installed KDE 4.3.5 on my existing Gnome desktop and i have two users using the computer. Now from Gnome I am accustomed to switch between session very easy and the sessions continue to run. If I use the Switch option from KDE it just looks my screen and does not switch. Is it possible that I miss some programs? I installed it with Yast and used the group option. I am pretty sure that I missed something during the installation.

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

sudo -u theotheruser -s
or

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.
