Ubuntu :: Change Default Runlevel 10.10 / Getting A Blank Screen At Login Time?

Dec 20, 2010

How do you change the default runlevel in Ubuntu 10.10? I need a solution that I can execute by editing text files; right now I'm accessing the Ubuntu filesystem by mounting it to another OS on a different hard drive.

The long and the short of it is that I'm getting a blank screen at login time. I suspect it's a driver issue (I have an Nvidia card) and it shouldn't be hard to fix... but I need a console. And no, I can't get in via Grub... my main OS is Slackware and Lilo is controlling the bootloader. So I need to be able to change the runlevel, and thus far a Google search has proved unenlightening.

Fedora :: Customizing The Login Screen - Sound - Default Desktop Environment

Aug 27, 2010

I have just installed Fedora (13) for the first time. It's great ! So thanks to all its developers !

I managed to do many tweaks I wanted to, in no small part thanks to this forum, but here's one that eludes me and my google-fu.

I'd like to customize the login screen (if I grokked correctly, that's gdm). I already saw how to change the background or how to enable automatic login, but what I'd like to do is this :

1. Disable that rather annoying "pong" sound when I select a user,

2. Set a default desktop environment. Gnome seems to be the default environment selected in the drop-down menu, but me, I'd like for it to be XFCE.

Slackware :: Finding The Location Of Default Console Keymap?

Mar 20, 2010

I avoid capslock like the plague and use "ctrl:nocaps" when in X, and would like to have the same behaviour in the console. Back when I was using Debian I got it set up the way I want, but now I can't seem to locate the default keymap. I tried editing



and it works when I use loadkeys manually, but not on boot.

Fedora :: Change Login Screen 10?

Apr 16, 2009

I want to change the login screen in Fedora 10. I know in previous versions gdm manager or something like that was used to change this. I have a theme file that I downloaded from Gnome-look, but I can't use it in Fedora 10 because gdm wasn't included in 10 or something?How can I sort this, and does anyone know if gdm is making a return in Fedora 11?

Fedora :: How To Change The Login Screen In 15

Jun 28, 2011

I've tried to change the log-in screen on Fedora 15 (gnome3) to have a custom background, however none of the guides I've found have worked - I'm now left with a blue background with no image. They all follow the same instructions as this guide. (I did change the address and PID to my own ones, although the PID was always increasing everytime I typed it) If I type this into the terminal logged in as my user I just get my desktop background changing, although I'm assuming this is correct.

Slackware :: Reset Default Keymap Then Switch Ctrl>>Capslock Not Working?

Jan 8, 2011

I'm running through an Emacs tutorial and I was trying to figure out how to exchange CTRL and CAPSLOCK.

1. From the Emacs Wiki, i saw


As super-user:

$ loadkeys emacs
$ echo "loadkeys emacs" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local

so, maybe stupidly I tried this. Which seems to have changed nothing.

so then I try


loadkeys -d

to try and get back to the default. Which doesn't seem to work. so then thinking i should reset everything, try to go in /usr/share/kbd/keymaps/i386/qwerty and do


loadkeys defkeymap.map.gz

Finally, I go into /etc/X11 and edit xorg.conf-vesa to uncomment


# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
Option "XkbOptions" "ctrl:swapcaps"
and restart.

To no avail...

Fedora :: Able To Change The Background - How To Personalize GDM's Login Screen?

After trying to personalize GDM's login screen, I have been able to change the background (If anyone know how to personalize GDM's login screen, Sometimes when I go on the login screen, I see a gray box without anything on it (I try ALT+CTRL+F# and ALT+CTRL+BACKSPACE) but nothing is shown.

I'm talking about the main login screen, not after you have logged in and need to change the desktop background. We use a custom background for machines in our lab, and need to implement this on 6.

Fedora :: How To Edit Main Menu / Change Login Screen

Dec 5, 2009

I have finally ditched Ubuntu/Mint after 2 years and have now installed Fedora 12. I am excited to give it a spin. This was the first version of Fedora that finally recognized my intel graphics card.

I have 2 questions:
1. How do I edit the fedora/Gnome main menu? When I left click on Applications, etc. I am not given that option.
2. How do I change the login screen?

OpenSUSE Install :: Wrong Keymap - Now Root Can't Login ?

Dec 30, 2010

I just happened to lock myself out of ssh access on my xen virtual server since I changed the ssh port but forgot to open it in the firewall. No problem, I just access it through VNC in VM manager, I thought, however I have some special chars in my root password and the keymap through VNC seems to have changed somehow. So I cant login as root, nor do su or sudo. I can login as user. I need the sign " but can't figure out how.

Slackware :: Keymap Change In Locally Installed Wmii?

Jul 1, 2010

I've installed wmii as window manager (slackware 13.1) locally, i.e. not system wide. I use a german keyboard and this works fine until I start my window manager. within wmii the german layout is not present (neither in xterm nor in emacs or ooo3 etc). I changed the file /etc/X11/xorg-conf already accordingly but without any effect. Hence I suspect that the local installation of the wmii requires a change of another config-file?!

Fedora :: Screen Blackout In F11 On Different Systems

Jul 2, 2009

Am I the only one to experience this? A couple times a day I get a screen blackout while I am working at my computers. This is happening both to my Desktop, whose specs you can read in my signature, and to my laptop. The blackout occurs randomly, lasts 1-2 seconds during which I get a black screen and, after that, the screen is restored to its previous state and everything runs fine for hours.... until it happens again. My laptop uses the default SGI drivers; my desktop the proprietary nvidia drivers from rpmfusion. It happens while browsing, editing code and even gaming. No messages in system log seem to be related to this.

Ubuntu :: Restoring Login Screen To Default?

Jul 26, 2010

Recently I tried to change my login screen with plymouth in the terminal, i got to the part that shows all of the different login screens you can have, so I clicked the one I wanted. When I tried to log back in, the theme was basically the same as the default, but it made me click log in, enter my username, click accept again, then enter the password. So I was wondering how I could make it the default login screen where it's all on one screen.
