Ubuntu :: Lock Screen When Suspending Or Hibernating?

Dec 8, 2010

How can you do that in lubuntu 10.04? In xubuntu 9.10 I could do that, if I use gnome-power-manager and gnome-screensaver, and use gnome-power-manager's icon to suspend/hibernate, but I don't see that kind of option in lubuntu.

OpenSUSE Install :: Logging In - Get The Black Screen With Just The Mouse Pointer

May 7, 2011

I have Open Suse 11.3. I normally use GNOME or KDE sessions. Yesterday I was just thought of trying other Desktop Environments. so I logged out to choose a different session. I tried LXDE and logged back out. After that I found "metacity" in the sessions list and tried it. But no desktop appeared. All I got is black screen a with the mouse pointer/cursor. I waited for quite some time but no desktop, panel, etc loaded or was visible.

I could not figure out how to log off so I hit the start button. After reboot the system automatically chose the same session (It always reuses the last used session) and I was in the same sticky situation. I tried starting in Safe mode as well but still I get the same black screen with just the mouse pointer.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Logging Out Of The Xserver Without Warning After Screen Saver Mode Or Lid Closed

Oct 8, 2010

One very specific issue regarding KDE in OpenSuse 11.3

- when I close the lid of my laptop or get into a screen saver mode, sometimes when the xserver comes back to life it basically goes back to the KDE login menu (log out) without any warning...

I have looked at the detailed settings and power performance management but nothing there.... I am in fact in "don't do anything" mode (power management) but this does not seem to do much.

Ubuntu :: Lucid: Purple Screen After Logging On?

Jun 3, 2010

I upgraded from 9.10 to 10.04 2 weeks ago. After a day or so I suddenly couldn't logon anymore. The pc boots, I get the userlist and can enter my username and password, then the userchooser dissappears but the background stays purple and nothing happens anymore. I can still move the mouse and switch to text console but I don't get my desktop. This happens for any user even a new user I created from the command line just to test this. In the end I assumed I messed something up during the upgrade and reinstalled the pc from scratch using Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit.

I was happy for almost 2 weeks but now suddenly I get exactly the same problem. No matter which user account I try I just can't logon (graphically) anymore. Rebooting the system doesn't help. When I run top on a text console I don't see anything hogging the cpu. There is nothing obvious blocking anything. I can't find any clue in /var/log/* or ~/.xsession-errors. I can logon still in text mode as a regular user, my homedir is there, everything looks ok. 1 thing I did notice is that a (few) boots before this started happening autofs suddenly didn't start anymore at boot time (my homedir is mounted from a NAS via NFS). I had to manually start autofs as root to be able to get to my homedir. However this seems to be ok now, automount is running and my homedirs are available. I tried making a new user with a local account just to rule out network issues but even this user can't logon. So the automount issue may be totally unrelated.

Ubuntu :: Lucid - Not Logging In According To The Login Screen Settings?

Jun 30, 2010

I want my Ubuntu 10.04 to login to an Xterm session every time, so I changed it to auto login to Xterm in the login screen settings. This worked fine until I went to do something in a gnome session again, and now even though it is still selected as logging into Xterm automatically, it logs into a Gnome session. Can anyone help me with fixing this?

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?

General :: Logging In Sends Back To Xubuntu Login Screen?

Feb 17, 2010

When I start up my computer Xubuntu is asking me to login (which is strange as I have login disabled). Then, when I do enter my password, it is accepted and after a few screen changes I am returned to the login screen. (I know the password is correct as the login screen informs you immediately if you enter it incorrectly.) Also, I can see that my display settings have been changed--the monitor resolution is wrong--my cursor is way big as are buttons, text etc..

General :: 82845G Graphics Controller - Screen Goes Black After Logging In

Jan 14, 2010

I have installed the latest debian on a dell optiplex gx260 which has a 82845G chipset and there are some strange problems.The system is configured with autologon as a standard user. Sometimes, after logging on, the screen goes black but if I connect to it with vnc, I get a working desktop. Yesterday I booted it without a display attached to it and now I cannot set it to the right screen resolution anymore (1440 x 900) which was working fine before.

I have googled and searh the forum but cannot find the right information. According to Intel, the latest driver should be in the distro but I cannot find any details about that (version/date). grep Driver /etc/X11/xorg.conf returns

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.

General :: After Booting Logging Into The User A/c - Gives A Blank Screen With The Desktop Wallpaper

Jan 8, 2011

I just put on my Linux PC now and after booting logging into the user a/c, it just gives a blank screen with the desktop wallpaper - no menu's or anything, so there's pretty much nothing I can do. I know I had removed the menu and replaced it with the dock (awn dock or something).

However, I can log in as root and root works fine (so I'm doing the update at the moment).

Coming back to my question, I used to know an Ubuntu command which I put in as sudo (terminal)and it used to work like a magic command which would literally restore and repair my linux installation - I even used it when I bought a new system and transferred my linux hard drive from my previous machine to the new one and this one command actually setup and prepared my linux installation to work smoothly in my new PC - just one command after connecting my h/drive in the new PC.

Ubuntu :: Computer Won't Boot \ Opened The Screen But The Login Screen Wouldn't Appear?

Oct 1, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04.1 and I run it 24 hours a day. Recently one morning I went to my laptop and opened the screen but the login screen wouldn't appear. Anytime the cursor appeared, HDD activity would go to 100%. I'm assuming this because the HDD light on my laptop was permanently on. So I made the dumb decision of just holding the power button down and turning it off. When I turned it back on, I noticed it came to a command prompt type screen listing "initramfs" at the bottom apparently wanting me to input a command. I did a lot of research and couldn't find much of anything that would help me. I read about GRUB, superblocks, fsck, e2fsck, etc.. . I tried all of those and nothing has worked so far. Any ideas? I did notice one thing. When I went into the actual install with the livecd, it told me the drive was /dev/sda5, but in Disk Utility on the livecd, it told me it was /dev/sda1

Ubuntu :: Mozilla 3.6.6 - Logging Into GoDaddy Account Keeps Displaying The Login Screen And Not My Accounts Page

Sep 7, 2010

Since I have upgraded to Lucid (and thus to Mozilla 3.6.6), I am experiencing a bunch of annoyances with Mozilla.

1) logging into my GoDaddy account keeps displaying the login screen and not my accounts page (yes, I checked the password)
2) creating an account in bugzilla resulted in an "Invalid OpenID transaction" error message instead of a confirmation page
3) the [URL] page popped up a parser error instead of the website.

Midori and Mozilla 3.0.8 work just fine. Does anybody else have problems with mozilla 3.6.6 and above?

Debian :: Hibernating After X Seconds / Minutes After Suspend

Feb 19, 2016

I followed a guide with the hopes of my computer waking from suspend after a defined number of seconds (for testing purposes, 4 seconds).

Per the guide, I've added a file: /etc/pm/config.d/00-use-suspend-hybrid

Code: Select all# Always use suspend_hybrid instead of suspend
if [ "$METHOD" = "suspend" ]; then

# The delay after which hibernation gets triggered (default: 900 seconds, 15 minutes):

After four seconds of suspend, it continues suspending, and doesn't go into full hibernate.

Debian Hardware :: Touchpad Doesn't React After Hibernating

Oct 24, 2014

I have installed Jessie on my Dell Inspiron 7340 and the touchpad works fine with xserver-xorg-input-synaptics. However, when the system wakes up from hibernation or standby , the touchpad doesn't react.

In /proc/bus/input/devices there are - among others - the following sections:

Code: Select allI: Bus=0011 Vendor=0002 Product=0001 Version=0000
N: Name="PS/2 Synaptics TouchPad"
P: Phys=isa0060/serio1/input0
S: Sysfs=/devices/platform/i8042/serio1/input/input35
U: Uniq=

[Code] ...

When the touchpad works, the "PS/2 Synaptics TouchPad" section isn't there.
