In Jessie the lightdm login screen does not bring up a lightdm-gtk-greeter dialog box but what seems to be some other one. I can increase the font size by modifying the /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf file, but the login dialog box will not grow to accommodate the larger font (old eyes). The lightdm-gtk-greeter dialog box in Wheezy was a rectangle with a glyph of a console centered in its upper portion, and all the files I have examined indicate that this should be the same in Jessie, but instead the login screen in Jessie displays a narrower rectangle with a head-and-shoulder stylization off to the left.
I'm working on embedded debian. I do configuration to lightdm for autologin. My device start with autologin but sometimes I see login screen. ı will try it more than 20 times. 17 times its do autologin 3 times not do autologin and show login screen.
I'm trying to login as guest, but this option does not seem to be available even after changing the LightDM configuration file. I'm on Debian Wheezy + XFCE 4.8. My /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf looks like this:
I have Debian 8.4.0 with lightdm. I'm trying to load some command lines at session startup, putting these in ~/.profile but the file is not loaded. The same procedure works well if I switch lightdm to gdm3.
Anyway, there is some idea to load some script lines at the session startup? The file .bash_profile neither works. I don't want to use ~/.bashrc because it would load every time I open a terminal. Neither to use init.d because it would load for all users.
I just completed a fresh install of the weekly jessie build (downloaded today). All I've done is install updates, add my username to sudoer list, and reboot. When I did, the xfce panel was not there. When I right clicked, Apps, Panel, it opened with an error that I cannot make changes unless I save my session and that it's in kiosk mode. After a logoff or reboot, it's still not there. I saw one thread asked for the output of /.xsession-errors, which I've done, and it doesn't look good... I'm just not sure how to fix:
Code: Select allopenConnection: connect: No such file or directory cannot connect to brltty at :0 /usr/bin/x-session-manager: X server already running on display :0 xfce4-session-Message: ssh-agent is already running; starting gpg-agent without ssh support
I have recently installed Debian Lenny with KDE3. I foolishly checked Auto Login after installation and now I can't get rid of it. The KDE Login Manager window seems to offer the option of turning off auto login, but it does not work. I have tried useradd and userdel but this only makes things worse.
I have an odd issue -- fairly fresh Debian Testing install, using Lightdm.
After booting up, Lightdm starts, and then a moment or two later restarts. As a result, any keystrokes captured by the first run (e.g. the first few characters of my username) are lost. My lightdm log is:
Code: Select all[+0.00s] DEBUG: Logging to /var/log/lightdm/lightdm.log [+0.00s] DEBUG: Starting Light Display Manager 1.16.7, UID=0 PID=827 [+0.00s] DEBUG: Loading configuration dirs from /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d [+0.00s] DEBUG: Loading configuration from /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/01_debian.conf [+0.00s] DEBUG: [SeatDefaults] is now called [Seat:*], please update this configuration
This log shows me seeing the login screen, waiting for it to restart, and then logging in correctly on the first attempt.
Since I've made the switch to Systemd, I've been having various problems with LightDM.
The most interesting and frustrating problem is when I choose Shutdown or Restart from the XFCE4 shutdown menu, the XFCE4 session closes but then the lightDM greeter pops back up. The system doesn't even try to shut down.
Its as if restart and shutdown both act the same as the Logout button.
Im running XFCE4 4.12 (but same behaviour on 4.10). I have the latest LightDM and the latest Systemd.
I installed debian 7 with lightdm and MATE 1.8 (from backports) on a new PC.
Since the first day the mose keeps disappearing. For example when I click on something, the mouse disappears and only comes back when I move it. Sometimes it already disappears when hovering over a button (especially annoying when it happens while you try to resize a window).
That problem did not happen for example in LXDE, which I installed just to test that.
I did install MATE 1.8 on several laptops/PCs so far, never hat that problem. Maybe it's because of quite recent hardware?
I'm using MATE with Lightdm as display manager in Jessie and I've been using a very simple script run from /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/01_debian.conf to slow down the mouse cursor, something like
Code: Select all#!/bin/bash
xinput --set-prop 10 269 -1
xinput --set-prop 10 267 1.100000 the script was placed in my ~ and called from 01_debian.conf , and so far it used to work.
Lately this script wasn't executed properly, most likely because I had unplugged the mouse from its usb port and then plugged again in a different port, and as a result Lightdm wouldn't start at all.
After much trying, because this by coincidence happened after the update to 8.4, I realized that it wasn't a serious failure of the X server as I suspected (the update included a new version of the flgrx driver), but a simple matter of Lightdm failing because of this script: in fact, I could still manually start the session with startx as regular user, although this only gave me access to a LXDE session instead of MATE (I have also the LXDE environment because when I installed Jessie I did use the LXDE version and then added MATE).
What happened was that the mouse properties were scrambled up, so xinput --set-prop 10 269 -1 had now to be something like xinput --set-prop 10 268 -1 and so on - therefore the script failed and in turns Lightdm failed as well.
-is this supposed to happen when you unplug the mouse and then plug it back in a different usb port? It reminds me of some windows-like behavior, where usb peripherals had to be always in the same port to work properly.
-is Ligthdm supposed to fail because of this, or is it kind of a bug? It looks weird to me that instead of simply not executing the script, the whole display manager fails.
In testing, with an identical setup, as a matter of fact the script failed as well (it's on another partition on the same hardware) but Lightdm started as usual.
-when trying to modify the mouse properties in that script, I couldn't get them right again: what looked correct in the booted system, was once again off at the next reboot (i.e. property 269 was 270 again and so on), therefore I ditched the above setup and placed everything in the .xsessionrc file, and it worked again.
-why startx defaulted to the LXDE environment? where is this setting stored? How could I have specified to start a MATE session instead from command line?
I press On-button, Debian boots, logs in and automatically connects to the Wireless network AND! to my local pc via LAN. It runs an ssh server, so I can ssh into debian over internet and communicate with the local pc (send a magic packet).Here are my problems:
1) I don't how to log in automatically. This and this doesn't work. 2) I need a network tool that can manage multiple connections and has a reconnect feature. With the default network manager I cannot even connect to more than one network simultaneously although I have two network devices of course.
And I guess I can run all that in console mode, right?
I've recently installed Debian Stretch and Gnome. After setting up everything I ran into an issue with Rhythmbox, which apparently only occurs if NFS mounts are present in /etc/fstab, independent on the question of whether they are actually mounted or not. I'll attach the results from running it from console with 'rhythmbox -d': [URL] .....
I guess, the last lines are the "problematic ones" but I can't make sense out of them. After the last line, a window opens telling me that rhythmbox isn't responding, whether I want to kill it.
And the /etc/fstab entrys (in case any of those options is an issue):
How to auto entry the X window (xfce 4) on debian 6 base system. I install Debian 6 only Base system, then install xfce4 use: apt-get install xfce4 I can type "startx" entry the xfce4. I want auto entry the xfce X window, when the computer is started. How can I do it?
I upgraded the distro (Strecht - Testing) and the result was almost the same mentioned by mittgreen, when I boot the system it fails to load the X, ending in the "oh no something has gone wrong" screen.Now, the only possible way to use the GUI is to start it manually by startx command. Reading the Xorg.log I saw a "No screens found" error.
Installed kdeconnect from Stretch repo, and KDE Connect from F-Droid on my phone, but I don't know how to get this working. No KDE Connect options anywhere in System Settings (I also search there for "connect" and don't find anything related to KDE Connect). There's no GUI anywhere, no Plasma 5 widgets, nothing. Only "kdeconnect-cli", which when I enter "kdeconnect-cli -l" (list devices) I get
Code: Select allkdeconnect-cli(26749)/kdeconnect DevicesModel::refreshDeviceList: dbus interface not valid 0 devices found
On the phone side, "No devices" found when it searches, or when I press refresh. Why is there no System Settings option even after installing the kdeconnect package?
I recently upgrade my system from Jessie to Stretch, with no problem. A little later I upgrades Enlightenment from e17 to e20, and at some point shortly after that the second screen stopped working.
The nvidia X Server Settings correctly identifies both screens. But Enlightenment and xrandr does not see the second one at all. The second screen are on and the pointer moves correctly onto it, but no activity with left or right click. I have tried with the original xorg.conf, and generated a new one with nvidia-xconfig, but no difference. No obvious errors in any log-files either.

I just installed Lightdm from "bob"'s ppa, and it looks great when I run it from a virtual console (like Ctrl+Alt+F5), but how can I replace the gdm login manager with it? And when I do that how can I make ldm not register the Samba Guest User as an actual user? I am using ubuntu 10.10
I'm using Debian Stretch with Gnome and Cinnamon. My desktop computer sports an nvidia geforce 970 gpu (this may be relevant, and it is the reason I had to go with stretch.) I'm not a very experienced linux user but I get along fine.
I'm sharing my computer with my mom and whenever we have to switch users, the computer seems to shut down for 35 seconds: the screen doesn't receive signal anymore. After a new user is chosen, it takes another 35 seconds to get to her session. This is embarassing because my os runs on an ssd and everything else is nice and fast. At first I thought it may be a matter of us two not using the same window manager or not using the "default" window manager, but changing window managers didn't work.
Today I learned about the existence of /var/log/syslog and I decided to check what happened to it when I switched users. I can't post the whole log of what happens because it is too big, but I put it on pastebin : [URL] ....
I understand almost nothing of what is written here, but I saw some interesting things:
- after 35 seconds intervals where nothing is logged, there is a stall on cpu detected (lines 68, 500) - my gpu seems to have something to do in all this
I am new to Debian and I have been trying to find a way to auto login to a users account upon Debian booting. Is there a way to auto login to the root account upon a Debian boot? Is it possible to do this with GNOME installed as well as Minimal?
is there a way to auto login as root? login in window preferences won't allow me to select rootPS before anyone starts on the me bad, I'm a programmer using it on a closed embedded system, and need to link to others software, and need to be root
Just got a pretty fresh install of Debian/XFCE. Both monitors work out of the box on my 8400GS. I was unable to find an option to change it so I can span is as 1 work space instead of having them mirrored.
