Debian Configuration :: Bringing Up Wireless Interfaces At Boot Also

May 11, 2010

My new Squeeze machine detects all of my hardware including the LAN and WLAN cards, but only brings up the LAN card. There isn't even an entry for it in /etc/network/interfaces for me to modify. I tried adding the info manually but then the entire network wouldn't start. I had it configured as a static IP and I know the commands were correct due to them working on the LAN card. I believe that the name "wlan0" was causing the problem, but how else can I bring it up at boot?

Ubuntu :: Getting Login Screen Directly After 9.10 Bootup

Feb 14, 2010

When I boot up 9.10, very occasionally, I get a login screen directly after the page with the Ubuntu b&w symbol and before the colour page. It doesn't happen very often but usually when I am showing someone how good and quick Ubuntu is.

OpenSUSE :: Shutdown Gnome Directly Without Getting Exited Into The Login Screen?

Dec 10, 2010

I am running Opensuse 11.3 which had the KDE desktop loaded by default. I have since installed the Gnome desktop which I access via the log in screen whenever I want to use it.

One thing that is annoying me is that whenever I load gnome I am unable to shut down the computer directly from the gnome panel.

When I click the shutdown button, I want the computer to shut down, but rather gnome exits into the login screen and it is from there that I need to click the shutdown button in order to shutdown the computer.

Is there a way to avoid this and be able to shutdown from the gnome panel?

I do not want to uninstall KDE as a solution, I would like the flexibility of having both desktops.

General :: Wake From Screensaver Directly To The Login Screen In Ubuntu?

Mar 16, 2010

I've got Ubuntu 9.10 with a user account for my wife, and one for myself. "Wake-from-screensaver" should result in "choose user" without having to enter any password. I know how to do that in Windows, but I'm not good with Linux (yet). get past the login screen without passwords (after booting, and after choosing "switch user"), but once the screensaver kicks in and I wake it up again, the system does not present the "choose user" screen. Instead, it either turns off the screensaver and presents the desktop of the most recent user, or (if the screensaver is set to lock the screen) prompt for the user's password (which can be handily surpassed by clicking the "switch user" button and choosing the same user again). So, the login ("choose user") screen has been dealt with. How do I make the (any) screensaver return to the login screen at wake, rather than to the current user's desktop? Windows can do this, I'm sure Linux can too - but how?

Debian :: Clock Directly On Desktop Wallpaper?

Feb 6, 2016

When I google screenshots of Linux I often see that people have a clock directly on their desktop. How is this done?

I'm running Xfce on a Wheezy vm, but without xfce4-panel, so having a clock/date right on the wallpaper/desktop would be great..I don't want a clock in a window.

Debian Multimedia :: Boot Hangs At Login Screen And Nothing Works

Mar 26, 2011

I'm running an LMDE install, but with the Sid repositories.Everything has been fine until yesterday's updates, after which I can't boot normally. The boot hangs at the login screen, and nothing works - not the mouse, the keyboard, the touchpad, nothing, and it requires holding the power switch to get out. I can boot to a root recovery console, but networking doesn't work at all there. I can run startx there and get an X desktop as root, and networking still doesn't work. No wireless, no ethernet, no nothing. From the recovery console I can run shutdown, and when prompted for a password, can enter Ctrl-D, which immediately drops me back to X, to the normal login screen, which now works normally, and I get a normal X session in which everything works. This is the same for all installed kernels, including 3 versions of the Liquorix kernel and the standard Squeeze kernel. It would appear to be something in my settings in /home, but I can't find anything that looks suspicious. I ran smxi again after booting through the root console, without any improvement.

General :: Net Boot From Debian Server Using Directly Connected Ethernet Cable

Jun 23, 2011

I have a computer with grub installed, and nothing else. I'd like to install Debian on it without having to burn a CD. (and I don't have any flash disks.) It has a nice ethernet card, and I have another computer right next to it with an ethernet card. I also have an ethernet cable. However, I don't have any router free which I can mess with for these purposes. As I've looked up, apparently modern Ethernet cards don't need crossover cables, normal cables will work for this type of connection.

I've tried several different "tutorials" on how to set up a netboot server, but

None of them are complete. All of them assume that you understand how DHCP works, and that you can do things like set up a dnsmasq server. I don't understand the DHCP protocol, with submasks and whatnot (I know that it is the protocol for assigning computer network addresses, and that's it), and I don't think I should have to in order to simply connect two computers. All of the tutorials give you incomplete configuration files, and ask you to fill in things which I don't understand, and for me it doesn't make sense to customize these settings, as I just want to connect them and I really don't care what ip address the TFTP server has or whatnot. All of these assume that you are going through a router. I am not. When I try googling for ways to directly connect two linux computers with an ethernet cable, I can't even find instructions, just more references to "you need crossover cables".

So basically, I have two computers directly connected by ethernet cables. Tell me what packages I need to install, what the contents of my configuration files should look like, and what, if any, commands I need to run in order that when I turn on my second computer, and select network boot, it will start up a minimal debian system.

EDIT: Hmmm, it looks like I actually have a linux kernel installed too, but no root filesystem (so no other programs besides busybox).

Ubuntu :: Computer Won't Boot \ Opened The Screen But The Login Screen Wouldn't Appear?

Oct 1, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04.1 and I run it 24 hours a day. Recently one morning I went to my laptop and opened the screen but the login screen wouldn't appear. Anytime the cursor appeared, HDD activity would go to 100%. I'm assuming this because the HDD light on my laptop was permanently on. So I made the dumb decision of just holding the power button down and turning it off. When I turned it back on, I noticed it came to a command prompt type screen listing "initramfs" at the bottom apparently wanting me to input a command. I did a lot of research and couldn't find much of anything that would help me. I read about GRUB, superblocks, fsck, e2fsck, etc.. . I tried all of those and nothing has worked so far. Any ideas? I did notice one thing. When I went into the actual install with the livecd, it told me the drive was /dev/sda5, but in Disk Utility on the livecd, it told me it was /dev/sda1

Ubuntu :: No Unity Desktop After Login Screen

May 6, 2011

I have recently downloaded and installed Ubuntu 11.04 desktop. I'd like to be able to dual boot into Windows or Linux on my PC so I've installed in on an ext4 partition on a separate drive from Windows. The installation process ran smoothly and the dual boot functionality works as planned. The problem I'm having is that after logging in, the login window disappears (as does the options bar at the bottom of the screen), and then nothing else appears, just the mouse cursor (sometimes the loading icon, sometimes not) and an empty background image, no icons, no menus. It doesn't matter how long I leave it for, nothing ever happens from this point on. I am technical, however, unfortunately ,I'm very new to Linux (something I'd like to remedy) so I'm a bit stuck with what to try next.

Fedora :: Enable Desktop Effects Drop MI To Login Screen (KDE)

Dec 19, 2010

After checking "enable desktop effects" in KDE. I'm dropped to login screen and can't login. How can I enable desktop effects? (As a solution to not being able login after checking the box I found that deleting kwinrc in .kde/share/config/ should help and it worked, so this is not a problem).

Fedora 14 2.6.35.10-68.fc14.x86_64
$ lspci | grep -i vga
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Broadway XT [Mobility Radeon HD 5800 Series]

I don't know if it's related but I also when on login screen I can't console login - after warning I see black screen and nothing more.

Ubuntu Installation :: Flashing Gnome Desktop And Login Screen ?

Jan 7, 2010

I'm having this problem with Ubuntu 9.10, it has happened the three times I have tried to install it.

I have made a video showing the problem: [url]

After upgrading and rebooting, the flashing login screen appears and it is not possible to use the GDM.

I have tried to install KDM and it works, but when trying to load gnome I get the blinking bars again.

I have also tried this (and got the same problem); installing the Nvidia driver (manufacturer), installing the Nvidia driver (repositories) and installing no screen driver.

I think the problem is with GNOME, and not with the graphics card.

Now I have installed windows xp :-/, for the first time in a whole year, cause it is not possible for me to use Ubuntu 9.10 at all.

Ubuntu :: Remote Desktop Launcher On Lucid Login Screen ?

Jan 20, 2011

Put an remote desktop launcher on the lucid login screen.

I'm running a ubuntu lab, and adding an rdesktop launcer to the login screen would really make login much easier for the users, so they don't have to login twice. First into lucid and then into windows with rdesktop.

I'v already made the rdesktop launcher on the lucid desktop, but where (if possible) do I put it so it will also be avalible in the lucid login screen ?

General :: Messed Up And Lost Graphical Desktop And Login Screen?

Jun 14, 2010

I was in the middle of deleting the Xine movie player, and clicked a box wrong. I lost everything possible on the graphical desktop as well as a log in screen for Ubuntu 9.10 (karmic). Since then I did a few things:1. apt-get install ubuntu-desktop2. apt-get install kubuntu-desktop3. apt-get remove kubuntu-desktopAfter all this, I still have the login screen for Kubuntu. But I don't want that. I want to get back to the Ubuntu login screen, and the orange colored desktop. Right now -- after I log in -- I only have a terminal to use. And I have the blue background of Kubuntu. What do I need to do to get rid of the Kubuntu graphics and back to my original login screen, plus the Ubuntu (karmic) graphics and toolbars / menus?

Fedora :: Customizing The Login Screen - Sound - Default Desktop Environment

Aug 27, 2010

I have just installed Fedora (13) for the first time. It's great ! So thanks to all its developers !

I managed to do many tweaks I wanted to, in no small part thanks to this forum, but here's one that eludes me and my google-fu.

I'd like to customize the login screen (if I grokked correctly, that's gdm). I already saw how to change the background or how to enable automatic login, but what I'd like to do is this :

1. Disable that rather annoying "pong" sound when I select a user,

2. Set a default desktop environment. Gnome seems to be the default environment selected in the drop-down menu, but me, I'd like for it to be XFCE.

Ubuntu Installation :: Desktop Session Crashes To Login Screen Soon After Logging In?

Oct 10, 2010

After upgrading my netbook (Eee 1005HA) from Ubuntu Lucid to Maverick, I can log in okay, but it crashes back to the login screen a couple of minutes after logging in, after the desktop has loaded. I haven't been able to find anything in syslog/dmesg/etc. about why this is happening, but it isn't happening on my other laptop which I just upgraded to Maverick as well.

Edit: memtest86+ showed no errors and the live USB desktop works fine.

Ubuntu :: Graphics - Go To The Desktop Login Screen The Video Goes Completely Scrambled

May 14, 2010

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.
