Fedora :: Timed Login Via Gdm Program No Longer Works
Jul 3, 2010
Fedora 9 used to support a timed login via the gdm program. This feature no longer works with the gdm that comes with Fedora 13 (gdm-2.30.2-1.fc13.i686 ). I made modifications to /etc/gdm/gdm.schema as follows:
I just installed Fedora 13 on a new computer and the timed login for gnome does not work unless you manually select it. This surprised me as I upgraded a separate computer to Fedora 13 and the timed login feature still correctly functions and does not require user interaction.
I know you can substitute the timed login with the automatic login and it will instantly login, but this provides no option to select another user. I have been unable to find any information why this feature no longer works and wanted to know if there is a new way or if anyone knows why the timed login feature was crippled.
I'm hosting a server with Ubuntu 10.04. I've stumbled upon a strange problem.The server seems to refuse any login attempts, either with SSH or via a TTY after a reboot. After a couple of minutes (about 10 minutes or so) I able to login. The memory usage isn't high at login nor the system load. The auth.log doesn't show any login attempt before.problem? Or does anybody have a suggestion I could try to fix this?
i loaded the YUM suggested by fedora and adobe. the install went well and worked during that time during the next and all restarts after the flash player no longer works infact all websites requiring flash say it si not even installed. I tryed to reinstall it and it said it is already installed and to cancel.
I had the rt3070sta running fine (built from a makefile) with the previous kernel. Since the startup with the kernel referenced above '184.108.40.206-115.fc12.i686', this driver no longer works. BTW, 220.127.116.11-115.fc12.i686 came with a new rt3070sta driver.
For some unknown (to me) reason, "Ctrl+Shift+u, <unicode number>" doesn't work in F12. I had gotten quite used to this method in order to input several symbols and if you know what you want, it is a lot faster compared to using the character map. This was working in all recent Fedora versions.Does anyone know how to enable this functionality?
I upgraded from Fedora 10 to Fedora 11, and it seems that when I saved my main.cf file, something changed in the versions and it no longer works. I've tried going through the file and tweaking it, but it's not working. Here is the postconf
I'm using a program called Auto Power on and Shut down on Windows. It let's me set times for the computer to shutdown, power on, hibernate, sleep, and etc. Is there any program or any script you can write for Ubuntu that lets you do this? I need something like: Tell computer to turn off at 10am. *run programs* Tell computer to (does Linux have hibernate?) something that isn't shutdown but looks like it's shutdown at 5pm. I use hibernate in Windows.
Is there something weird about the FLOPPY DRIVE on F12? Nothing associated with it works & I can't get an icon for it. Also the FLOPPY FORMATTER no longer works. (mine is an internal drive)- I had some really miner quirks with it in 10 but it worked. I had some workaround launchers that I used until an upgrade semi-fixed it. (It would give a false error that it couldn't run but did. I just ignored it.)
I tried to edit FSTAB to cure a problem of my BACKUP drive showing up twice*** so while I was in there I added the stuff for the floppy & it still doesn't work. If I try to mount it manually, I get the error that /dev/fd0 doesn't exist.I tried to find some info on it & it SEEMS that there MAY be a bug but I'm not sure as the info is a bit confusing as to just what version & such they are talking about. And there was also the problem that all the stuff seemed to be OLD or not related to my problem.I why I quite hacking at my system, is that all my workaround launchers & the formatter say that there are GNOME things missing & they can't run. So I figure that there is something missing or screwy already & that I'd better ask BEFORE I make things worse or actually break something.With the fact that floppies are about gone, it's getting to be not that big of a deal but I still find myself having to use them for repair purposes (albeit, not as much) & it gets to be a bit of a pain to fire up M$ just to do something like this.
*** It appears that the one in FSTAB was the one I needed, so where would the OTHER one be so I can get rid of it? Or at least make it auto mount.
I just upgraded to FC14 (64) from FC13 (32) and the mouse middle button (simultaneous left+right button) paste function has stopped working. I tested it with 3 makes/models of different mice and trackballs. For some reason (left+right) mouse returns the same code as the single right-button ('xev' value = 3). This worked in all previous FC and RH distros I've used in the past. Did a default setting get zonked somewhere? System: Toshiba laptop w/ USB mouse.
Well, to start off my graphics card didn't work but I got that fixed.
When I start up and the login screen appears it no longer says my username and Other.. under it. It only displays Other.. I have to click that type in my username and then my password. When I log on the Auto Bug Reporting tool pops up and says 3 things crashed
I can't change my system time, shutdown or reboot under system or my username in the top right hand corner. I have to su and manually type reboot or shutdown to shutdown. It is like the computer is completely restricting me from using it.
When I try to get into my firewall an error comes up
I just updated to 10.10 (), but I have one problem. I changed my password a few days ago, and now whenever I log on, It comes up with the attached message, and I have to type in my OLD password to connect to wireless.
For everything else I have tried at this point on the computer, the lowercase letter 'e' is just fine (this message being an example);Has some configuration file for terminals (konsole, xterm, Yakuake) or whatever got messed up and I need to correct it?
I just updated my system to a new kernel with the update manager and now my WICD no longer obtains an IP address. Everytime I try it says "Connection Failed: Unable to get IP address".It was working fine before and even when I reboot into an older kernel it still doesn't work.I'm using a Belking Wireless G adapter.I would have tried downloading another network manager but since I can't even access the internet I'm stuck with changing current settings and nothing seems to work.
I made a USBbootdisk and installed 10.04 the day the final release came out. I installed it, used this post install guide http://blog.thesilentnumber.me/2010/...de-what-to.htm, and it has been working like a charm since then. When I went to log on to it today, the log in screen comes up as normal, I enter my password, ubuntu thinks about it for a minute, and then sends me right back to the log in screen.
I have an Asus EeePC 1005, dual booting Windows 7 Starter/Ubuntu 10.04
I just want to see if this is fixable before I wipe the partition and reload ubuntu.
Have recently updated 10.04 with latest updates which included a new kernel and the printer no longer works. In-fact I can't even define the printer and I don't have a printer installed, the install script can't locate the printer on the USB. I have a cannon MP640.
I can print OK through windowsXP on virtualbox, printer is found OK.
Everything was fine until latest update.
Also my USB TV card doesn't work anymore, it also was OK before the update.
I installed Lucid several days ago, and have just noticed that SCIM no longer works. I need it for Japanese input, but cannot turn on Anthy. The manual is either nonexistent or extremely terse with a lot of presupposed knowledge.I've installed German, Russian and Spanish language support, along with CJK. I can't even get the SCIM tool to pop up now---except ONCE!Simply reinstalling using Synaptic overlays the existing problem(s), and does not resolve any issues.SCIM may be conflicting with the desktop Switcher applet? Actually, SCIM seems to be conflicting with other Gnome desktop shortcuts, as well
Ubuntu, been using windows for years and now use Mac. I have Ubuntu running on a netbook at work and all of a sudden my wireless connection not only doesn't work, it doesn't seem to exist! Wired still works fine, but the wireless option has vanished. How do I reset or restore or whatever it takes to get my wireless working again?
I login as normal user. I can 'su root' fine - password authenticates. However, If I try to run System->Administration->Users/Groups, when it asks for root password, it is rejected. When I run updater, it reports failure to authenticate, but doesn't even ask for root password beforehand. Is there a cached password someplace?
There is something strange going on with Pidgin in Debian 6. I have just installed the system, then Pidgin, then configured my MSN accounts and chatted; but after rebooting, it no longer works. It just hangs while trying to connect - this is what I see from strace:
- a largish number of times. My very rough and ready thoughts about this so far are that it is probably not Pidgin that has an error, since 1) It worked initially, and 2) I am pretty sure the developers would have know about it very quickly if this was a general problem in Pidgin. On the other hand, my networking seems otherwise to be fine - s what is going on here?
I upgraded my openSUSE 11.2 KDE to version 11.3, and now my Canon Pixma ip1800 Printer no longer prints. It appears to me that the upgrade may have removed one or more files that the printer needs, but I don't know.
I have new install of 11.4 X86_64 which has been working fine up until this morning. Now when I boot and get the kdm login screen, the keyboardis no longer working, nothing appears from typing, no key sequences are recognized. The mouse works fine and when I go Console Login, the keyboard works fine.The mouse and keyboard are both Logictech wireless using the Logitech unifying usb link. As I said, it was working fine until this morning.I have no idea how to even diagnose this.
