Fedora Hardware :: Mousepad Locked On Desktop In User Mode?

Nov 13, 2010

The mouse was working fine until I pressed the 'lock' button right above it. Since then I have not been able to move the mouse 'once' I get logged in. The mouse works fine when in the login screen. I have tried resetting several times.The keyboard seems to be working, but I don't know where to go to fix the mouse, and I don't know many keyboard shortcuts
** Solved **It's been filed as a bug and has yet to be fixed:[URl]A code below was used effectively by many but made my system freeze when I started up. I ended up reinstalling. So just a general warning.

sudo mod*robe -r psmouse
sudo mo*probe psmouse proto=imps

Server :: Rsync Using Www As User Gives Ssh Error - User Www Not Allowed Because Account Locked

Feb 11, 2011

Apache is run as www as is all the files/folders. People are uploading via FTP, scp, so the problem is if I chmod so everyone can read, then rsync as a user it works until new files are added which then my ; if rsync fails with a permission denied. Now I can add a chmod in the script so everyone can read, but since www can already read, I figured I would just change my script to use www. I added the ssh key to his authorized_keys file, but when I try to just ssh in I see this in the secure file;

server sshd[29539]: User www not allowed because account is locked
sshd[29539]: Failed none for invalid user www from ip port 54983 ssh2

Now I read a few places already saying I need to add a password to the account, etc. but before I jump and try all I read, 1st major one, will this now break apache? Will this affect any startup things, etc. and .... will that unlock that user for ssh in or is there another preferred method?

General :: Linux In Locked Down Kiosk-mode?

Jan 21, 2010

I have a few old workstations no longer serving the company. My thought was to use these as internet stations where employees can register their time thru our internal web-based application. I would like to have an environment working like Windows with the SteadyState add-on, access to a limited list of web-sites and no system changes by the user. I have looked at [URL] and [URL] which both meets me criteria when it comes to locking out the user from all system settings, but both seems to be totally open to all web-sites without the possibility for the admin to make a list of allowed sites.

Running it from a bootable CD without using the HD seems like the way to go for a surf-kiosk.

Ubuntu Networking :: Network Deactivating During Locked Mode?

Aug 29, 2010

I have a HP Pavillion DV7 laptop running Ubuntu 10.04, and I am having some problems with Ubuntu handling a network connection. Every so often, I leave my computer in locked mode overnight to download something. But, when I do this, the network just deactivates early on [there is a symbol of a blank wireless symbol with a red "?" by it]. Both the wireless and wired network connections are deactivated, and I am using a wired connection. This also sometimes happens in suspend mode, too, but less often. I have to restart my computer before it will connect again, as logging out and back in again does not suffice.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Enabling Mousepad Tapping?

Jan 10, 2010

I recently switched to Fedora from Debian (Fedora 12 LXDE Spin), and the one thing that bothers me is that I can't find a way to enable tapping on the mousepad to click. So far the solutions I've found have included editing the xorg.conf, which, to my understanding, is no longer included in the Fedora kernel.

General :: Emergency Mode Can Mount HDD With FS Error / Not In Rescue Or Single User-mode

Dec 1, 2010

My linux workstation recently crashed. After rebooting, Linux (Red Hat 5.3) will not boot properly and automatically went into emergency mode or recovery mode i think. I can still see my /home/user/ and all the files inside.I boot from CD to rescue mode and tried mounting read-only the /dev/sd5 which contains the files in the crashed hard disk to try to copy out my files but mounting was unsuccessful (invalid argument). I checked the filesystem type using fsck -N /dev/sda5 and shows it to ext2. i tried to mount another known working hdd and was successful.

My question is why in emergency mode, the crashed hdd is able to be mounted automatically as read-only but cannot be done in rescue mode thru a bootable CD?Is there any special mount options used in emergency mode?I also cannot copy out in emergency mode booting from the crashed hard disk as everything is read only.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Some Processes Does Not Start In Multi-user Mode

Feb 2, 2009

Few days ago, the server did not respond to a ssh request from a user at night. A user tried to check what went wrong with computer and tried to login from terminal next morning. As the computer was unresponsive, he somehow decided to boot it by turning the power off. To make the story short, the server rebooted; however, he can't login to his account. Actually, the server could not start some processes; but was able to ask user to enter his account username. Even though, he enters the correct username and password, server does not accept the request. I also could not login as root.

I just checked the server logs by booting it in single user mode. Here are some interesting lines:

Before the reboot:
irqbalance : can't balance irqs on a uniprocessor system: failed

After the reboot:
irqbalance : can't balance irqs on a uniprocessor system: failed


This might be something related with shadow file.

Here is part of /etc/shadow

Fedora :: Change Desktop Mode In 15

Jun 15, 2011

The first time I started F15 the following notice appeared (approx.: I have translated it from spanish):


Unfortunately GNOME 3 failed on having started and it is now in alternative mode. It probably signifies that your system (graphic hardware or controller) is not capable of executing GNOME 3 complete.

Computer data: AMD Athlon XP 2400+ 2,01GHz; 1.5 GB RAM; ATI Radeon 9200SE. Fedora 15.

How can I change from "alternative mode " to another more friendly not 3D desktop?

OpenSUSE Install :: User Locked Out After Multiple Passwords?

Dec 5, 2009

I am having a problem with some users who get locked out after more than 3 failed attempts at login. This is exactly what I want to see - they will eventually remember those stronger passwords (maybe?) - but how do I re-enable their access? I haven't tried this on a live box but I can easily recreate the situation via vnc to the server in question and I assume the result would be the same. I like the policy that leads to this but I do need to let them back in - eventually. Where is the blacklist kept and how do I edit/reset it?

I need a locked 'screensaver' that shows the real background/desktop (icons and open windows) so that my boss can see what I was working on, but my peers can't mess with it. All the Ubuntu screensavers as far as I can tell either manipulate pictures or do some 3D/2D graphics.

Red Hat / Fedora :: How To Lock Down User Desktop

Feb 10, 2010

I work for a local community college, and we currently have web kiosks set up around the college. They have fairly old hardware and are currently running windows XP. However, with all the group policies and scripts required to lock them down, it can take 10+ minutes for the students to log in(we want authentication for someone to be able to use them).

Now, I have managed to get a few test computers to run fedora with openLDAP authentication and LTSP giving them a desktop with firefox. Now, the problem is that we don't want the user to be able to do anything but run firefox and, on some of them, print. I have been using gnome, gconf, and sabayon(not the distribution, the user profile tool) to attempt to lock down the desktop. However, anyone can just right click the gnome menu and add back in everything i disabled. While they wouldn't be able to do much harm, the point is that if they want to do work, we want them to go to our computer labs, instead of the kiosks. The kiosks are just for looking things up or getting on their e-mail.

Fedora :: Gnome - Can Allow A Remote Desktop / VNC Connection If No User Is Logged In

Oct 18, 2010

Is there a way gnome can allow a remote desktop / VNC connection if no user is logged in? If the server gets rebooted I can't access it (remote desktop / VNC). Someone physically has to go there and log in. Surely there must be a way as gnome is running just waiting for a login.

Ubuntu :: Locked Up - While Accidently Clicked "Switch User" On VNC Login

Jun 3, 2010

I started a remote VNC connection from my Windows pc to my Ubuntu desktop, got presented with the Ubuntu login screen. Entered my password and accidently clicked the "Switch user" key instead of "Unlock".

The login panel became grey and now I cant do anything (I guess its because there is no other user). When I exit and enter through VNC I allways come back at the same grey screen (see screenshot below).

Is there any way of bypassing this and unlock my ubuntu desktop?

The problem: (After clicking switch user)

Ubuntu :: Desktop Doesn't Correspond To /home/user/Desktop?

Sep 25, 2010

While I was trying to drag the Desktop icon to the places sidepane in nautilus file browser so that I can have it above Documents icon, I accidentally dropped it in Documents icon. I immediately deleted the "Desktop" shortcut that was created in "/home/user/Documents" but it was too late already and the damage has been done. When I try to create a new document on my desktop, it says "Error while coying to Desktop There was an error getting information about the destination. Show more details Error stating file '/home/user/Documents/' Desktop':No such file or directory" Now, I know that my desktop now is pointing me to a location in Documents folder which doesn't exist at all. I tried looking for any available settings/options in gconf-editor, but only in vain.

Debian :: Change Indent Size In Mousepad?

Sep 27, 2010

I really enjoy using Mousepad for my programming. A lot of you might stare at me for a second, but I really do like it. I do use Medit from time to time for it's tabbed interface and syntax highlighting. I know Mousepad doesn't have syntax highlighting but I figure if I know how to program without relying on the colors, then I can understand the structure and dynamics of a programming language's syntax.how can I change the indent size on Mousepad? It seems to be at 8 and that seems like too much of an indent. When I have to go over to my Windows machine, my indent size is 4 there on Notepad++, as is Medit here on Linux.

Ubuntu Installation :: Mousepad Not Working In LiveCD?

Mar 6, 2011

I recently purchased a new Sony Vaio laptop for my sister and convinced her to try Ubuntu. I am now trying to install Ubuntu 10.10, alongside pre-installed Windows 7.I am installing through the Live CD. When I boot using the live cd, it takes me to the ubuntu desktop as usual but the mousepad is not working at all. I used keyboard to navigate and click the install Ubuntu icon. However in the step where you are required to specify partitions, I can not specify the size ofifferent partitions ad the mouespad is not working and hence, I can not use the slider.How should I now proceed with installation. Could it be some driver related issues. If Ubuntu was installed, I could have installed drivers or tried solutions as suggested in some other threads (changing some config files etc.). But how to proceed in Live CD.
