I use linux mint 8, and I want to change the background for the login screen. For easier and smoother login. Ive googled for days,cand nothing works. I tried GDM2 and I press select new image, but it doesnt work. Do I need the image in a certain folder?
I am trying to change the login screen from "Configure Your Desktop>Advanced>Login Manager".When I go into the login manager, everything is grayed out,you cannot change anything.I have to change it as root but I don't know how to do that. Therefore I need help regarding that. I did google searching but it was not of any help because they were for previous releases of mandriva or other distros which didn't apply to my case.
It seems to be locked up. i cant change any settings, im familiar with kde 4.3 as ive been a kde user in ubuntu for a year or two. every single button is greyed out. i mostly have default options setup in mandriva, i just started using it.
My last setup (years ago) ran fluxbox so because it was familiar I installed it as a secondary to xfce right off the bat. I download a lot of different stuff because I like to try out all the apps I can find but somewhere I broke something. I can still run fluxbox fine, but nither the Xubuntu nor Xfce sessions will run now. Last thing I remember changing was pulse audio(removed it for an experiment I was trying with jack audio), not sure if it is connected but when I try to login to xfce the screen goes black, flickers a few times then it brings me back to the login screen.
I tried failsafe but everytime I do my monitor gives me a "frequency out of range" error. I tried purging and reinstalling xubuntu desktop and xfce settings but I am thinking its my xorg config. My laptop is a Toshiba satellite M305D-s4830 with ATI Radeon 3100 mobile graphics card and I am running Xubuntu 10.10. Unfortunately I also broke the screen, so right now I am stuck with an external monitor till I get a new one.
i used to have 9.10 but now upgraded to the latest version. Back then I changed the background to full black for both the preboot screen and login screen.Now after upgrading it changed it to the purple color screen. I am wondering how I can change back the background color?
I have installed VirtualBox and setup a Windows Vista host, initially with a .vdi of 10gb. That filled up quickly, so I added another 20gb secondary partition, after first trying to allocate a .vdi to a SCSI controller. Configured the drive in Windows (Computer Management), and all seemed ok. I shutdown VB, and rebooted my Linux host (openSuse 11.3). Now I keep bouncing back to the login screen, and can't login to Linux KDE, but can login to a console.I do have the following info:
I did see a message before, that I don't see anymore, that said it could not start NFS services due to missing entry in fstab. Another I'm seeing now is it couldn't start the avahi-daemon, no space left on device. This is odd, since I have a 200GB drive, with half of it left, only max 30GB set to VB. Here's my df -k output:
/dev/sda6 Use% is 100% devtmpfs Use% is 1% tmpfs Use% is 1% /dev/sda7 Use% is 46%
So root "/" is mounted on /dev/sda6, which looks like it could be a problem, but why would this suddenly be a problem after working with VirtualBox? Could this be a matter of just freeing up space on /dev/sda6? Like the /tmp folder that's under "/"?
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?
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.
one of the things i like about linux is its highly configureable.so how does one change the login screen?i dont see a gdm mgr in suse 11.1,however i do see a gdm mgr in the pkgs,so do i nstall this?or is there another way?i went to installthis pkg and a screen came up saying there were dependancy issues.
After upgrading to 9.10 I can't change my login screen, only edit the auto-login preferences. I have one I'd like to use already, and am unable to figure out how to replace the new login screen with the one I've downloaded. It used to be simpler in 8.10 which is what I used, there was a menu for it under System and Preferences.

Just installed F11. Been totally frustrated all day and all night with resolutions and DNS bugs. I installed system-config-display so I can get my video working properly.

I tried to change the name of the default user I created when I installed Fedora 14 to" Administrator". That apparently succeeded, but the login screen still shows the original name I specified. How do I go about changing that. don't need to change the home directory or anything else for that user.
