Debian Multimedia :: Skipping Password In LXDM

Aug 31, 2015

I've installed Debian Jessie recently. I've also installed LXDM from the testing repos.Then I created a password-less user account with 'guest' as its username by this method:

Code: Select allsudo useradd guest
sudo passwd -d guest

Now even if I set "skip_password=1" in /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf the login screen still asks for the password. If I enter nothing there, it won't let me login.

I'm running opensuse 11.2 64 bit, kde desktop. Have performed the one click installation for the restricted codecs from here:

No matter what I use (amarok, kaffeine, etc) there's heavy skipping / stuttering while playing back mp3 tracks.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Radio Skipping / What To Do?

Jun 30, 2011

I installed latests version Suse 64bit, and I have problems with Internet radio streams. Streams are skipping for 2-3 seconds every 10-20 seconds, or sometimes as long as 1-2 minutes. I tried GStremer and Xine engines, tried Amarok, Banshee.... always the same - radio streams skipping. I never found a way to increase buffer for Internet streams. Updated to last versions , still the same.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Stuttering / Skipping Audio Through GStreamer?

Jan 10, 2009

I've just made the move to openSUSE* and after the installer seemed to bork my xorg.conf because of my Wacom tablet things have been going quite smoothly. My only problem at the moment is that MP3 playback through Exaile, Banshee or Totem stutters and pauses several times per track or more. The only commonality I can see is GStreamer, but nothing is giving me errors to the console.

rpm --query --queryformat '%{NAME}-%{VERSION}-%{RELEASE}-%{ARCH} -> %{VENDOR}
' gstreamer-0_10-ffmpeg gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mp3 gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mpegdemux gstreamer-0_10-fluendo-mpegmux gstreamer-0_10-plugins-bad gstreamer-0_10-plugins-base gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good gstreamer-0_10-plugins-good-extra gstreamer-0_10-plugins-ugly


* I ditched Fedora to get better Monodevelop support after using Redhat 7.3 and 9 followed by FC 3 and 6 then Fedora 7, 8, 9 and 10. The Ubuntu forums seemed to keep giving me occasional answers to questions, but the Suse build service gave me the RPMs, when the requirements matched.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HD Movies Playback Skipping (Samba Share)

Feb 6, 2010

I recently upgraded my machine to a AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ in the hopes of being able to stream HD movies to my ps3 and tv. I currently dont have my ps3 hooked up. But yesterday I wanted to watch HD movies from my server (samba share) from my laptop hooked up to the tv via CAT5. The issue is that when I started the movie, playback back was skipping. When I watch the movie on the Ubuntu server no skipping. I am wondering if this has to do with my switch being 10/100 and not GB? Im not trying to watch them over wifi as that would be impossible. The connection is CAT5 cabling. Should I try a GB switch instead?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skipping Through Wma Files Even With Restricted Formats Installed?

Nov 23, 2010

I can play WMAs with MPlayer but when I try to skip forward a few minutes it plays for a split second, and then plays at another random part of the video making it impossible to play a WMA from anywhere but the beginning.

mplayer -demuxer lavf ccent01.wmv.The above command opens the video but there is no menubar, scroll bar, or any reaction to right click although strangely scrolling my mouse wheel seems to randomly skip through the video. In VLC when trying to play the same file I get the error:

No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "wmas". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this. No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "MSS2". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.After converting the .wma file to .mpg, and also .avi using a command similar to:

Code: mencoder ccent01.wmv -ofps 23.976 -ovc lavc -oac copy -o ccent01.mpg. There is no change playing the file with mplayer and in VLC it now only gives one error: Code: No suitable decoder module: VLC does not support the audio or video format "wmas". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this. I'm preparing for a Cisco exam later in the week and would like to spend tomorrow watching hours of computer based training videos but would rather not have to do it in Windows. Already tried using Media Player Classic in WINE but it crashed. Is there a workaround? Oh and I already have ubuntu-restricted-extras installed.

Debian :: Keyboard Skipping Letters And Continuously Typing Same Letter

Jan 30, 2016

I recently built my first computer which has Debian Jessie running on it.

Everything was running great until I updated the computer a few days ago. After doing that and turning it on a few hours later, the keyboard started missing letters (as in it wouldn't register every key click) and was also typing some letters over and over again. It seems that it doesn't matter what key I press, the same problem occurs.

I tried using the keyboard on my laptop; it worked perfectly. I also tried connecting up another keyboard I had laying around and that seemed to have the same issue. Both keyboards are mechanical.

Debian Multimedia :: Cannot Become Root With My User Password?

Jan 26, 2011

I'm on Squeeze with KDE 4.4.5. Basically, I can use my password for things like logging in, or authenticating on a shell with sudo successfully. But in other cases, I am asked to "become root", and when I enter my usual password, I'm told to check if I entered my password correctly. This happens with Aptitude (terminal GUI), for example: from Actions, I try to update the package list, and when I enter my password, I can read su: Authentication failure. However, if I start Aptitude by typing kdesudo aptitude on Konsole I can enter my password in the authentication box successfully, and use Aptitude with administrative privileges.

The example is valid also for other applications, such as System Monitor: just for the sake of the example, if I try to stop a process owned by root, say Aptitude, I'm asked for a password to become root, but my password doesn't do the trick. I'll have to open it from terminal with kdesudo ksysguard, then I'll be allowed to kill that process. Does it have anything to do with my choice at installation? I think I must have chosen to leave the root password field blank, and only entered my password as a user, for it explained I could become root anytime if there was need to with sudo.

Ubuntu :: Revert Back Accidentally Installed "lxdm" On Top Of 10.10

Nov 3, 2010

I'm using 10.10, up to date etc. I went into Synaptic Package Manager and installed the package "ldxm" and all its dependancies. Now when I go to log into Gnome desktop, all I can see is my wallpaper. All my girlfriend's files and photos were encrypted in the home directory (or whatever), I selected that option when I installed it.

All I wanted was the new login-screen theme (rather than the rectangular default one) and now I can't seem to revert back I just want to go back to before I installed "lxdm"

Debian Multimedia :: KDE 3.5 On Lenny Root Password Or Sudo?

Aug 14, 2010

I have just installed Lenny on a Thinkpad R50p. During the install I opted for no root password, using the sudo option instead (I've been used to this on Kubuntu for a long time). After installing, I added KDE 3.5 with apt-get install kde-desktop - all seems to be OK, except that I am unable to add packages or perform tasks for which a root / admin password is needed. It seems that the install-time choice of sudo (shared password) does not propagate to the KDE install, which is still expecting a root password.

how to either enable the KDE desktop to work with this shared password setup, or whether there is a better route to a KDE 3.5 desktop than just installing as I did (I am aware of Trinity KDE 3.5 but the Pearson Computing source is still not up, are those packages available for Lenny anywhere else, and are they recommended?). I can of course rerun the whole install and choose root & user passwords but if there is a smarter solution it would be less of a 'reinstall Windows' type of fix

I've had a very frustrating time the last few months trying to find a KDE4 based desktop that is stable enough and not lacking some basic functions (print manager, for goodness sake), so I have temporarily thrown in the towel and will try a Stable installation that is not changing (breaking) all the time, until KDE4 series gets past this adolescent stage of development and settles down.

I do need to get back to a system I can work on rather than keep on trying different installations!

Debian Multimedia :: Network-manager - Openvpn Does Not Ask For Password ?

Mar 9, 2011

I have setup my laptop to connect to a VPN server running openvpn.

This works fine if I from the client, start OpenVPN from the terminal. /etc/init.d/openvpn start

It then asks for a password for the certificate, which is should.

I have then installed the OpenVPN option for the Gnome network manager (network-manager-openvpn), so I could use the nm-applet for this, instead.

But it seems to be that there is a little bug, so I does not prompt me for the certificate password, OR use the password this is actually set for the certificate. (kinda irritating)

I get the following error on on the client.

nm-openvpn[2936]: ERROR: could not read Private Key username/password/ok/string from management interface

It seems like an very old bug, I tried the following without any luck (Yes I noticed it was for Ubuntu). [url]

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Choppy Skipping Video On All Video On 10.10?

Nov 22, 2010

Just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on an old Dell Dimension 8400 with an ATI RV370 Radeon X300 video card and 512MB of Ram. The video seems to go very fast and skips. I followed the Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto but still have the same issue. I have also read many posts but I have trouble understanding some of the responses. Could it be the low amount of RAM?

Debian Multimedia :: Password Prompt Locks All App-switching In Gnome

May 5, 2015

I often need to login into various accounts. In Debian 7 I always was able to copy and paste passwords from text files if I was asked for an input, but now the textfield for password input locks the whole system and I can't do anything else before I have supplied the password. Is there any way of restoring the old behaviour to make password input forms (like the request for GPG key passwords in Evolution) just being an addintional app-window instead of an input request, that locks everything else? I want to be able to open the proper file with the login data when prompted for it.

I know I could theoretically solve this issue by using a general system wide main key which would supply all individual login data, but I want to memorize some often needed phrases by actually typing them when I need them. I just want the possibility to open text files for copy and paste when I'm prompted for a password if this is something I don't even want to remember.

Debian Multimedia :: Password Rejected When App Launched Via Gnome Menu

Jul 26, 2015

I use Debian Jessie with Gnome.

I have installed Timeshift. Administrative password is requested when I click Timeshift icon in Gnome menu. I enter the password (or paste it to be sure) but it always returns with "incorrect password, please try agian" message. I am sure that I type my password correctly.

I looked at the icon's properties. It runs "timeshift-launcher". I changed it as "gksudo timeshift" or "sudo timeshift" or "gksu timeshift", enabled "Launch in terminal", disabled, but nothing changed. Always same password request window appears and it rejects my password.

However when I run "sudo timeshift" or "gksudo timeshift" command in Terminal it accepts my password and runs.

When I run for example Synaptics via Gnome Menu, password request window is with black background and it accepts my password. However when I run Timeshift, password request window is with gray background and it rejects.

Root password was not defined in my system during installation and I am the only user. I run administrative commands via sudo without any problem.

Debian Multimedia :: Type "xlock" In A Terminal And It Would Lock The Screen Until Came Back And Typed Password?

Feb 10, 2011

When I was using AntiX, I liked how I could just type "xlock" in a terminal and it would lock the screen until I came back and typed my password. I saw that there was no "xlock" package, so googling around, I saw it was replaced with xlockmore and xlockmore-gl, neither of which there seems to be a package for in the Squeeze repositories. I tried xscreensaver, but I prefer the simplicity of xlock (and I like that it doesn't leave a daemon runnig when not in use). Is there a way to safely install it, or should I just be looking for an alternative?

Ubuntu :: .ogg Files Skipping But Not In Windows?

Jan 18, 2011

I have noticed that my music, which is all in .ogg format, is skipping every once in a while in Ubuntu, but not in Windows (I use Banshee in Ubuntu; Winamp for when I use Windows). My whole music collection isn't skipping entirely--that is, not every music file has this problem. However, the ones that do, the music file skips like a scratched CD for 1-2 seconds. The same music file doesn't do this at all when played with Winamp in Windows. Are my music files corrupted? What is going on? None of the music files were like this before (with the skipping), but for some reason, the skipping occurs only in Ubuntu, not Windows/Winamp. Not every music file has this happening, but some of them do.

I have been thinking about converting all my music files to .mp3, or re-converting the files as .ogg as another copy,

Ubuntu :: Skipping The Authentication When Accessing And HDD?

Aug 7, 2011

On a laptop I have Windows 7 installed, and ubuntu 11.04. Now. A while ago the HDD died and I replaced it. with some data loss but nothing much to worry. Now I thought that it would be useful if I somehow could manage to direct the Documents, Music etc. etc. folders located /home/[user] to somewhere on a different partition HDD. I managed to make new folders on the partition and link them with the documents and music folders etc.. the problem now is is that you have to unlock it every time by either opening the partition and insert your password. I know that the password problem can be evaded by simply changing some settings, but. I want to evade the whole process of clicking on the partition. It is for security reasons that that have to sort of activate the partition, but I find it becoming a bit annoying.

So, has anyone a clue of how to activate the driver right at the start? something automatic stuff. Or does someone know how to disable this ?

Ubuntu :: Skipping Encrypted Disk At Boot?

Jul 18, 2010

Ive managed to screw up an encrypted disk experiment, basically at boot i get ask to enter my password which i lost.

Only a data partition is encrypted, the linux system is unecrypted.

However, the skip option thats presented that should work via S does not work. every key in input adds one * behind the password prompt.

The password prompt changes from white to red though. as if in the white phase you should be able to skip.

Im to lazy at the moment to swap the drive and comment the drive in fstab

I already booted in single, but still the mount occours. is there another way to get the system booting?

Ubuntu :: Audio Skipping In Java Application

Jan 18, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 last evening and all has been going well. Lucid didn't work out for me, so I used other distros. 10.10 fixed all issues except one thing. This is a need for me; e-courses I take require that I use Elluminate Live, a Java-based conference software. It runs flawlessly on every distro except Ubuntu. I had to use another PC running a different distro in order to get to a class. I really don't want to do that all the time. I thought it may be OpenJDK, but I found that Sun Java was installed and in use (I installed the extras while installing). I tried OpenJDK (worth a shot eh?) and the exact issue persists. All other programs have perfect audio.

Ubuntu :: Banshee Closes When Skipping Tracks?

Jul 18, 2011

Banshee only recently started doing this: When I play an song it works fine but if I click on skip it plays the next song for about 1-2 seconds then Banshee just closes. Also if I just let the song play (or skip to the end of the song) it also closes within 1-2 seconds of playing the next song. If I'm half way through a song I can click on another song to play it and it works fine through.I've tried disabling all my extensions but that didn't make any difference.

If I launch Banshee by typing 'banshee' into Terminal (and then play a song and press the skip button) this is what the Terminal says:

[Info 23:04:34.467] Running Banshee 2.0.0: [Ubuntu 11.04 (linux-gnu, i686) @ 2011-06-28 05:46:57 UTC][code].....

EDIT: I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 not Lubuntu, how do I change it?
