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 ?
So I have installed LXDE on my SuSE install to have a addition to the GNOME desktop. The installation went fine (of course). But I'm now faced with a problem with the transparency in LXDE, I have a box around my cairo-dock with a piece of my login screen background (looks like the well-known black-box bug. See Screen shot). This is a bit strange and I've been looking at the solutions for the black-box bug since I've had it before, but have not found a way to sort this yetv(though i have found many solutions for the black-box bug itself).
But, not only is this box around cairo-dock, the rest of the transparency in LXDE also shows the login screen background. See screen shot. Screen shot: [URL] As you can see, i haven't had time to work on the eye-candy yet.
I want to set up a web server on a PIII machine with about 800MHz processor and just under 500 megs of RAM. So how would I go about configuring Fedora 12 to do this? I've tried the small spins and I just don't know how to configure it so it will install properly. I was able to get the Gnome spin on it but when it booted I couldn't get through the log-on screen. I have an AGP NVIDIA Geoforce 6200 video card. I'm wondering it that's it. The only Linux distros I could get on the machine was Puppy and Debian. Puppy did not edit the boot record very well. Debian went on there with very minor issues, but edited the master boot record very well so that I can dual boot to WindowsXp HE. I also tried to put Centos on there but the Live CD is not installable. I have to make an installation CD from the DVD Package. Anyways, as far as Fedora is concerned, I just want a utility, light weight spin that has web-server, mail server, and eventually MySQL. Other wise I'll have to commit treason and use the horned Debian as my savior in this battle.
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.
What is difference between fedora 15 GNOME and fedora 15 LXDE except their interface.(I think their is no difference except their interface). GNOME 3 interface is much better than LXDE but it uses a lot of system resources. If I have F15 GNOME then can i switch from GNOME to LXDE without reinstalling it if yes then how?
After installing from the LXDE live CD I am unable to login. I type in my username, and then my password, and then the prompt goes back to the username (in other words, nothing happens). I can however login via the virtual terminals.
Could this be an issue with the live cd? Or was it just a bad install?
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??
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 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.
