I have recently upgraded my System from F13 to F15.
I use an ATOM Board with an Intel N10 graphic chip. It worked without any issue with F13.
F15 boots up, I can see the blue screen with the Fedora Logo. Then it changes to the background picture of gnome and thats is. No login screen. I checked the logs but I am unable to find any hint, why gnome does not boot up completley.
Installed Fedora 10 86x64 from ISO burned to a DVD. Installation went ok, and computer needed to be rebooted at the end of the installation. Upon restart, Fedora 10 loaded to initial setup screen where user name, date, time, etc are set. At the end, as this is a stand-alone computer, the setup requests to send data of computer setup to Fedora.org and this request has to be denied. Pressing the Finish button ends up killing the system. The system doesn't reboot, what does happen is that the screen goes to black, and no signal is given to the monitor; the system hangs at this state. I've tried to see if giving the setup the ability to send the system data would change the end state upon pressing Finish, but nothing changes.
I have installed a LXDE F14 spin into my laptop cause I its older, the thing is that I would like to use Gnome login screen, like where you choose your desktop management and insert your password. I have gnome installed as well..
PS. or can I just update LXDE to the version that comes with F15 (I looked to it quickly and seemed cool) without fresh install ?
About a week ago I used preupgrade to make the transition F14 -> F15 on a x86_64 workstation.
The system has been fully updated ever since, but I'm still not able to login either with KDE or Gnome. With KDE, the login process freezes before completion, whereas with Gnome I get the "wallpaper" behaviour reported here: [URL]
Funny though, I can login in the KDE failsafe session.
I could find no other thread reporting this problem and am at a loss on how to start diagnosing the problem. If anyone out there has any suggestion, I'd welcome it...
what's the difference between a "regular" KDE session and the failsafe one? They both look & feel the same to me...
I would like to post my problems here with Fedora 11 regarding that I am using Dell inspiron 1525, Dual core-N series. I have got two problems:
First;- After I updated my system, I have experienced a a login problem , which is each time I try to login and insert my password correctly it seems that it will login but it comes back to the same login screen as if I did not do anything, but after too many times it works.
Second: I read some posts in a website that talks about configuring the RPM fusion "Repo" and I did all the steps posted there , but after that whenever I try to update or download anything through terminal.... it appears the following:
Configuration: AMD 2500+, 2GB RAM, ATI HD3850 AGP Problem: Can not install OpenSUSE 11.3. Boot from the disc - the installation screen resolutions, modes of installation - everything is in order. But when the installation can proceed - loading (logo) and just a black screen - possibly the installation goes - but no picture. Also try to set mode "vesa" - loading equipment "ok" ... "ok" ... "ok" ... "ok" ... and again in the black screen.
I tried to install Compiz on F9 Gnome and I added a startup entry (system, preferences, personal, session, startup programs). Now I can't log in to the gnome window manager, it logs in and then logs out again. I would like to remove the entry that I created in the startup programs, but I don't know which file to edit. Where the settings to the System > Preferences > Personal > Session > Startup Programs are stored.
I've installed F12 twice now. After completing the installation and getting all the updates via YumEx, my network trouble begin after a reboot. I am not able to login as root under gnome so I can't see the services panel.
Tried to reinstall 'NetworkManager' after the fact but of course I have no network connections so I may have made the problem worse. I hate to reinstall and repeat the same troubles over again as it consumes a lot of time. I don't know where to begin.
I made a live-usb with Fedora 15. During installation the progress bar goes almost until its end and then it hangs up. I don't even get a login screen. The only responsible key is Esc which shows a console with two errors from nouvaeu, but i already figured it out that they are harmlessI tried gnome live-iso and kde live-iso - the result is the same. I installed Fedora 14 in the past on the same computer and no problems there.Ant ideas what i can do or check? I really want fresh install of Fedora 15 and Gnome 3
downloaded and installed Gnome 3 on top of Ubuntu 11.04, Gnome 3's login screen appears and offers the following login options: Robert/Automatic Login/Other. Selection get nothing except the audio signal.
Have Login/restart/suspend in the upper right corner. Alt-f2 gets me to root login, except my 11.04 root login and password isn't accepted, so can't get in a root. I think that it is the Gnome GUI, as I have seen something about installing Compiz etc. I could just reinstall 11.04 or 10.10 for that matter, but hate to give up. So, if I could find out how to bring up the termainal, and then how to get to where I could add compiz or something??
Previously I have a hard disk running OpenSUSE partitioned as follows: Code: /dev/sda1 = swap /dev/sda2 = / /dev/sda3 = /home
I redid the default partitioning scheme that Fedora tries to use (no LVM crap). Basically told it to make the above layout and to format swap and slash, but NOT to format /home because I want that data. I had it go ahead and install grub on the MBR of this HD as well. The install seems to have went ok and it rebooted. That is when the first problem comes up. I never see grub. I just get a black screen then a bar at the bottom that progressively turns blue, which I assume is Fedora loading.
This is all well and good, then it gets to the login screen (GDM) and I try to log in as root and it tells me "can't authenticate user" hangs for a bit, then goes back to the log in box. I try to get a virtual console (Ctrl+Alt+F#) and nothing. So I guess I have 3 problems in order of significance: - Why no grub? - Why no virtual console? - Why root can't log in?
Normally I would edit kernel option line at the grub prompt to boot into single user mode and fix the problem, but can't. I was able to use the "rescue mode" on the Fedora DVD to accomplish this, but have not had a chance to figure things out any further. I don't think having a /home created by another OS would prevent root from logging in since root "home dir" is /root.
I would like to change the login screen of of my system running openSuse 11.3 GNOME... I have tried most of the methods suggested in various threads on the forum but still not sure what to do.I even tried running
When I upgraded to 11.04 and decided to give Gnome 3 a chance I was stuck with a windows 2000 (or Redmond like) theme. I have since been able to change the theme in the desktop environment however the Login Screen still maintains the Windows 2000 like theme. I have extensively Googled how to change this, but I keep coming up empty handed. Does anyone have any ideas of how to change the Login Screen theme.
I was using Fedora 11 for the past few months. It was working fine. I upgraded yesterday to Fedora 12 and now every time I boot up, the fedora logo screen comes up, the "f" is filled up and after that the screen goes hazy. I was expecting the login screen but nothing comes - the system freezes sort of.
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.
I've been searching in google and in this forum on how to change the default gnome login screen in OpenSuSE 11.2?Have read harindaka's thread (How to Downgrade GDM in openSuse 11.2 to one used in 11.1 - openSUSE Forums) but it seems there's no guide for changing the login screen.
So, here's the story: I did some messing about with the ambiance-maverick-beta theme and it worked fine, but the login screen, missing the default Ambiance theme, defaulted to Clearlooks. Clearlooks. So, I tried upgrading to Maverick, thinking it would default the login screen to the new themes. No such luck.
I tried to open the Open the Laptop I found the I could not find my Login Screen, I can watch my mouse scrolling around and when hit power key show me restart, herbinernate .etc, I tried to log in into console by pressing ALT+CNL+F4, and when typed startx it showed me following error
Fatal Server error: Server is already active for display 0 If this server is no running remove /tmp/.X0-lock and start again Xinit: Resource temporarly unavailable (errno 11): unable to connect to X server Xinit : No such process (Errno 3): server error
I was compiling an application called Audacious. One of the dependent packages I needed to obtain was called Glib. After installing Glib (and a package it also required), my GNOME began failing and after rebooting the computer, the login GNOME login screen fails to displaying. Does anyone know what's gone wrong?
Now after installing Glib, restart your computer and your GNOME will have failed. Why the F did this happen?
We like the centos colour scheme but would like to add our own logo to the login screens and boot process of gnome. I have attached the two screens we would like to adjust in the install package. Where they are located and what the process of editing them will be?
Today I upgraded my system to the Nvidia driver 340.93 and 4.2.0-1 kernel on Debian Stretch.
While I wait for the gnome login screen to pop up I get the "Oh no something has gone wrong" message.
When I log in from another terminal and execute startx , gnome initiates and starts although settings like my resolution and other xserver settings are not loaded.
From the journalctl I believe the error is located in the following section:
Code: Select allOct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC org.a11y.atspi.Registry: SpiRegistry daemon is running with well-known name - org.a11y.atspi.Registry Oct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC gnome-session: X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation) Oct 06 14:23:17 DEBIAN-PC gnome-session: Major opcode of failed request: 154 (GLX)
I reinstalled the xorg-xserver and the nvidia drivers and I get the same behavior.
Looking for some info in order to reconfigure the gnome-session to work?
I'm trying to prevent GDM/Gnome from turning the screen off prior to login. It's current behavior, under 3.14, slowly fades the screen out and then enters DPMS mode after 10 minutes.I have zeroed out the following dconf settings, under both root and user, but the default behavior persists.
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?
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.
