Fedora :: Change Session Upon Logging In?

Aug 20, 2009

I'm currently using Fedora 11 Gnome and I installed the Kde core desktop. However, when I logged out there was no way I could change the session. I installed kdm, but after searching on google I found out that i need to change /etc/sysconfig/desktop to make kdm the default login manager. However, such a file did not exist. How can I change my session?

Fedora :: Change GDM`s Default Session?

Mar 14, 2010

I installed Fedora 12 LXDE spin and its default session was LXDE. Then I downloaded XFCE and tried to change the default session of GDM to XFCE. I edited ~/.dmrc and /etc/sysconfig/desktop but this didn`t change anything. I was unable to find where GDM stores its default setting.

Is there any way to change GDM default session?

And more important: is there any way to make GDM to store different default sessions for different users?

Debian :: Screen Session Loses Write Privileges After Logging Out?

Sep 11, 2010

When I start a screen session over SSH, I can edit and save files from within the screen session before I log out of the SSH session. But after I log out and log back in, I find that the screen session has lost write privileges, so that I can no longer edit or create any files, even within my home directory. How do I prevent this from happening?

Ubuntu Installation :: Desktop Session Crashes To Login Screen Soon After Logging In?

Oct 10, 2010

After upgrading my netbook (Eee 1005HA) from Ubuntu Lucid to Maverick, I can log in okay, but it crashes back to the login screen a couple of minutes after logging in, after the desktop has loaded. I haven't been able to find anything in syslog/dmesg/etc. about why this is happening, but it isn't happening on my other laptop which I just upgraded to Maverick as well.

Edit: memtest86+ showed no errors and the live USB desktop works fine.

Ubuntu :: Change Language Without Logging Out?

Apr 18, 2010

I need to create a simple way to change the language of my system without logging out. I would like to make it so that a user can just click on something and the language of the whole system will change.

I've disabled the traditional gdm gui login screen by adding the keyword 'text' to the kernel line so that it boots to a command line. I then start gnome by using startx and I've noticed that I can log out of gnome back into the command line, then change the environment LANG variable to the new desired language, run startx again and everything is in the new desired language.

I need a programmable way to only restart gnome(not a reboot) so that I can make a script that a user can just click on and it will set the LANG variable then restart gnome(preferably preserving all open applications, but if not, doesn't matter).

Ubuntu :: Change Virtual Terminal Colors Before Logging In?

into /etc/profile, but it still doesn't work until I login. I'd like it to work before that, so that all messages (like those displayed on boot up) have these default settings.

Ubuntu :: Logging Into Netgear Router Setup After Passphrase Change?

Jun 29, 2010

I changed the passphrase in my Netgear WNR3500 router. I got the teenager's win7 netbook back online (wireless) no prob by simply changing the security key in windoze and it didn't effect my connectivity but when I attempt to enter my router setup by entering my local IP nothing happens, no response at all. I've rebooted twice and my connection is still very solid but I cannot access the router setup. The ONLY change I made was in the router's "passphrase".Not a big emergency at this point I suppose but I need to know what I need to change in Linux? Or to rephrase, in windoze7 passphrase=security key. In Linux?I can just reset the silly thing I guess but was kind of hoping I wouldn't have to and besides I anticipate the same trouble when setting the passphrase afterward.

Ubuntu :: Change Default KDM Session?

Jun 23, 2010

So, I just installed Kubuntu 10.04, and couldn't let things be, so I installed GNOME, and plan to install a few other desktop environments for fun later. However, when I installed GNOME (apt-get install ubuntu-desktop), I realized that KDM's default session is whatever session you used last time. I'd rather it simply be KDE, since I know I'll be using it most out of any of the others. How can I make the KDM default session be KDE, instead of whatever the previous session was?

Ubuntu :: Lucid Can't Change Default Session?

Apr 21, 2011

I can't change the default session on the login screen to Openbox. The only place I can see to change this in 10.04 is in the "login" settings screen. I've done that; I still get "gnome" as the default option when I go to log in.

Ubuntu :: Change Desktop Environment/Session From Command Line?

May 12, 2010

I had chosen automatic logon. Then updated to 10.04. During logout to change Desktop Environment/Session, I noticed that GDM login screen had an option for KDE session although I had not installed KDE. I got curious. So I tried it. System hangs. Restart does not help because somehow gdm proceeds to the KDE session although I did not choose it to be default session. So I had only CLI left.

I got over it by stopping gdm (/etc/init.d/gdm stop) and removing gdm and installing xdm. Anyway, what is the proper way? How to order desktop environment from CLI and/or where is the default desktop environment option written in a file?

Programming :: Hashing The Components Of An Tcp Session To Assign/locate The Session In A Hash Table Bucket?

Nov 10, 2010

I have a very bad attempt at hashing the components of an tcp session to assign/locate the session in a hash table bucket. I am pretty sure that it has a very high collision rate and when there are a very large number of tcp sessions my application is having to search a long linked list to find the session within the bucket.

All the hashing functions I have found take a single string input where I need to input several integers and hash them into a single result. My guess is that any real hashing function is going to produce better results than what I am currently doing.

Fedora :: Live CD Keeps Logging Off?

May 29, 2011

I'm trying to install F15 for a friend, (works great for me btw) and after getting to the desktop and sometimes during install set up, it just keeps logging off by itself and then back to the desktop. This also happened on my computer a couple of times, but I managed to get it installed.Is this a known bug? Is there anything that can be done about it? Also, is there a fedora iso that has all current updates built in? He really wants F15, but we are stuck right now. and is there an "alternate" cd for fedora without gui install?

Fedora Installation :: Logging In Won't Work

Jun 12, 2011

I just installed Fedora 15 over a previous F14 installation. (My /home and /usr/local directories were installed as separate partitions, and the system dual-boots with Windows on another partition.) Setting up the users seemed to work normally. However, when I logged in, instead of starting normally, it went back to the login screen.I rebooted and made it go into terminal mode on startup (appending 3 to the kernel arguments). I was able to log in from the terminal. When I tried using startx, it failed. I tried to use "yum update" but I had no internet connection, so it did not work.

The next step was to try and get a connection to my router using iwconfig and wpa_supplicant, but that also failed. I tried reinstalling Fedora from the LiveCD, but the problem persisted.
