Debian Multimedia :: Enable Login Screen And KDE Access?

Feb 17, 2011

How do you enable a login screen? When I turn on my computer I only get command line. When I log into root I can start my KDE desktop using startx. But if I log into any other user I get the following errorX: usser not authorized to run the X server, aborting.giving up.xinit: No such file or directory (errno 2): unable to connect to X serverxinit: No such process (errno 3): Server error.

I'm on Debian testing Gnome 3.18 and I searched, tried, searched and tried... no way! numlock will always stays off whenever I reboot and reach login screen.

Debian Multimedia :: GDM3 Login Screen Orientation

May 23, 2015

I want to set up the GDM login screen in vertical orientation = left = (xrandr -o 1) due to my monitor.

I used Ubuntu and the below method has been working until I switched to Debian8 now.

[URL] ....

Rotate login screen

If you have your monitors setup as you like (orientation, primary and so on) in ~/.config/monitors.xml and want GDM to honor those settings:

Code: Select all# cp ~/.config/monitors.xml /var/lib/gdm/.config/monitors.xml

However,

1 Debian Gnome3 does not create ~/.config/monitors.xml
2 according to dconf editor

the location is

/etc/gnome-settings-daemon/xrandr/monitors.xml

and I tweaked, but no success.

[URL] .... method can be applied to GDM3 directory.

Since I have configured my x rortation only be xrandr command by shell init script, and never had configured by GUI setting, the monitors.xml was not created. When I done with GUI, the file is created as usual.

Then I copied to

/var/lib/gdm3/.config/monitors.xml

Finally works as expected.

Debian Multimedia :: Customize Gnome Login Screen?

Oct 17, 2010

I searched on the internet and notice that the setup gui for changing gnome login screen is no longer available (e.g. gdmsetup does not come up with a theme that can change login screen theme.)What is the right way or where there may contain such information? I google but most of returned are prior 2.30.2, which is the version currently I am using.

Debian Multimedia :: Personal Icon Not Appearing In Login Screen

May 31, 2015

I recently installed Debian 8 with the Xfce Desktop Environment, which uses the Lightdm gtk greeter as its login manager. My login screen at the moment looks something like this: [URL] ..... In particular, I still have the "grey person" as the default user avatar.

I have been unsuccessfully attempting to change my personal login avatar, following the advice on the Arch Linux wiki: [URL] .... I began by naming my desired avatar .face and saving it in my home directory. That didn't work, but I was not discouraged because the wiki mentioned that there were issues with the ".icon method". So I then installed accountservice, created a directory for my user, and saved my desired avatar as a 96x96 PNG named username.png in the appropriate directory (making sure that it had the necessary permissions, of course). That didn't work either...

Debian Multimedia :: Login Screen (GNOME) Stays Black

Apr 7, 2016

After applying upgrades to debian 8.2 on a lenovo yoga3 notebook and a reboot I am not able to login into my GNOME desktop. The login screen stays black. If I press the power button to suspend I can see the login screen with default background for ~1 second before it turns black again. What can I do to fix this issue? Is there a way to login via terminal and do a rollback? Can I use my home folder an personal settings if i reinstall debian and keep the /home partition?

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.

CentOS 5 :: How To Enable A Screensaver At The Login Screen

May 22, 2009

Does anyone know a way to activate a screensaver at the login screen? I've got about 5 machines here, and I'd really like the ability to just have the screensaver come on after 5 minutes of sitting there with nobody logged in...

Even a way to blank the screen would be nice. However, if we were to blank the screen, I need to ensure that it doesn't do a DPMS blanking, since we use calibrated monitors here, and turning them off sucks.

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.

Debian Multimedia :: Lightdm Login Screen Does Not Bring Up Lightdm-gtk-greeter Dialog Box

May 4, 2015

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Enable The Xinerama / Extended Screen

Aug 26, 2011

I have done a fresh install of ubuntu 11.04. Everything is fine, Ubuntu seemed to be using the opensource ati drivers upon first boot.
Then prompted that I install the ati catalyst control center/drivers from additional drivers which I did.Again smooth sailing untill I decided to enable my HD tv (hdmi) as my secondary screen. This again worked fine cloned. But I could not enable extended. The option is available but requires xinerama to be enabled.

After restarting I could not login. Read up on this and others have has this issue with different cards. I proceeded to login to ubuntu (no effects) session and then swtiched off xinerama. (this did work in this session). The issue is getting it to work with unity. Logged back into unity now but I don't know how I can enable dual screens in extended mode. There are recomendations on other threads advising to use the open source drivers. But these don't work correctly. The card I am using is an ASUS EAH5570. This I believe has the radeon 5570 chip.

Ubuntu :: Login To Xfce The Screen Goes Black - Flickers A Few Times Then It Brings Back To The Login Screen

Apr 12, 2011

My last setup (years ago) ran fluxbox so because it was familiar I installed it as a secondary to xfce right off the bat. I download a lot of different stuff because I like to try out all the apps I can find but somewhere I broke something. I can still run fluxbox fine, but nither the Xubuntu nor Xfce sessions will run now. Last thing I remember changing was pulse audio(removed it for an experiment I was trying with jack audio), not sure if it is connected but when I try to login to xfce the screen goes black, flickers a few times then it brings me back to the login screen.

I tried failsafe but everytime I do my monitor gives me a "frequency out of range" error. I tried purging and reinstalling xubuntu desktop and xfce settings but I am thinking its my xorg config. My laptop is a Toshiba satellite M305D-s4830 with ATI Radeon 3100 mobile graphics card and I am running Xubuntu 10.10. Unfortunately I also broke the screen, so right now I am stuck with an external monitor till I get a new one.

Debian Multimedia :: Multiboot Disable Or Enable GDM ?

Nov 22, 2010

I have a computer that runs debian 6, and i want to make a dual boot system where i can boot either with or without desktop. AS default the server will be booting in console (headless) mode (and act as server) but on some occasions i do want to bootup in desktop.

I know starting GDM (in my case the desktop manager) is just a simple task, but i would like to have 2 options in boot menu:
1 - without desktop default (timeout 5 seconds)
2 - with desktop

what would be the correct grub config entries?
