I have got Ubuntu with Xfce installed, and I would like to change default session to Gnome, or LXDE (depending on if my computer would run it properly). Looks like there is no options button while logging in, or anything similar.
I would like to make LXDE the default desktop for ALL USERS on my LTSP clients. There are about 60 users so far.On my server, LXDE is default for everyone.But on the clients, each user has to change to LXDE individually. How can I make LXDE default on all clients?I've been looking through the forums all day, but could not find an answer to this question, so hopefully we can get an answer and my title will help others.
I've managed to ALT-RIGHT-click-add some launchers to the top gnome-panel. When i now click on a launcher the gnome-panel crashes(?) and reappeares, but the program starts without problems. If i do this two times in a row (1 sec diff or so) the gnome-crash screen appears and i've got to log out although all the programs are still running without any problems.
dmesg shows this: [14460.034820] gnome-panel: segfault at 18 ip 0000003810fc05df sp 00007fffcaae4c30 error 4 in libgtk-3.so.0.0.10[3810e00000+3fb000]
Using the Nvidia driver from the repo on a Geforce 6800gs. In Kde4 all 3d applications seem to be working properly so I don't know why Gnome 3 is doing that myself. It wasn't working at all at one point and I am assuming that some update or another got it going. Perhaps a repo switch. Unfortunately I am not sure of what those changes may be. I just know that it does run now but only in fallback.
When I tried the liveCD a while ago, it all worked fine. Now when i do the text install following openSUSE:GNOME 3.0 - openSUSE I just get fallback mode. I cant quite understand why as the machine has an intel 3150 and n550 dual core processor. System - Acer Aspire One D255 - n55- 2gb RAM - 3150 Graphics
When i logged into a gnome desktop i got this message: "The GNOME session manager was unable to read file:'/home/(desktop name)/ICEauthority'. If this file exists it must be readable by you for GNOME to work properly. try logging in with failsafe session and removing the file." What commands do i use for that? or do i need to do something else?
I'm currently building a ubuntu distro and would like to run a script on GNOME startup. I've read about doing it through the session manager but I have to do it through chroot so I'll need to set it up as a terminal command. Is there a way to add an item to the Session Manager from terminal or, even better, a directory where I can put the script so it will run on start?
I think I made one tweak too far and as a result have lost my desktop - no top panel, launcher just a blank screen with my desktop background. I've created a new user and everything is fine under that account so I don't think it is terminal. which files I should delete/replace to restore the desktop back to it's default settings? I've deleted the .gnome2, .gconf and .gconfd folders but that has not solved the problem.
I've been searching in google and in this forum on how to change the default gnome login screen in OpenSuSE 11.2?Have read harindaka's thread (How to Downgrade GDM in openSuse 11.2 to one used in 11.1 - openSUSE Forums) but it seems there's no guide for changing the login screen.
I recently installed Wheezy from a DVD (that was written almost a year and half ago) to my desktop. The DVD install was a minimal one, so after installation I updated the system and installed gnome. But after reboot, my gnome always falls back to gnome-classic.
May be some firmware is missing, so I installed firmware-linux, firmware-linux-free, firmware-linux-nonfree, firmware-realtek, firmware-atheros (last two following a boot time warning). That did not solve the problem, so I just did Code: Select all$ sudo apt-get install firmware-* That also did not solve the problem.
Then I looked into my .xsession-errors file:
Code: Select all/etc/gdm3/Xsession: Beginning session setup... localuser:somesh being added to access control list openConnection: connect: No such file or directory cannot connect to brltty at :0 gnome-session-is-accelerated: No hardware 3D support.
I also installed "libgl1-mesa-dri-experimental" from another post I found in this forum.But gnome still falls back to gnome-classic.My hardware is: Core i5-4440, Intel onboard graphics, realtek audio and network.
I am using 64 bit F15 with gnome in fallback mode with compiz.I see the clock in the login screen, but with no changes clock does not show anymore and i can't see the notification area (the four desktops in the right corner as well as the windows name). I have deleted .gconf and .gconfd (that solved a similar issue time ago), but it does not work this time.I have

I'm looking to customize the environment for new users by changing the items in the GNOME menu, change the panel layout, add some shortcuts, and do a few other things. I looked in /etc/skel and there doesn't seem to be anything GNOME related in there; I also tried to put .gconf, .gconfd and .gnome2 from my home directory into /etc/skel and that didn't do what I wanted.
I recently went through a desktop crisis after removing unity from 11.04, installing openbox, hating it, and then installing Gnome 3. What's weird is certain applications like chrome and some other system things appear to use the theme I have (as in, they look nice) but windows like terminal, file browser, and most other applications including the default log in screen all look like windows 95.
you can see the square unstyled buttons. I'm just wondering how to apply a full on system theme to apply to all windows in gnome 3. tweak-gnome didn't look like it could do it, and after running through the themes (redmond, clearlooks, etc) they didn't have any impact on these windows.
After a great deal of pain I have Fedora 15 running in Virtual Box 4.1 on a older Mac Book Pro running Lion. When I boot Fedora 15 I get a black screen. I can get a virtual console by banging on the fn ctrl option f2 keys I can then use 'startx' to get another black screen but clicking around for a bit gives me the gnome fallback windowing. Is there any way I can force the gnome fallback to start up directly on a reboot?
I have followed the instructions at TightVNC (VNC Xvnc) on openSUSE as Client or Server (Remote Desktop Connections). I have also successfully configured vnc servers to use both Gnome and KDE on many machines; this is the first time I've had trouble.
GNOME 3 Failed to Load Unfortunately GNOME 3 failed to start properly and started in the fallback mode.This most likely means your system (graphics hardware or driver) is not capable of delivering the full GNOME 3 experience.

On my newly upgraded opensuse 11.4 with GNOME,was trying to change my default mail client. I go into Preferred Applications and under email, all it lists is Evolution. I would like to change it to my Groupwise client. Googling the problem, I found that I should be able to enter a custom command there for a new entry but there is no custom option. So I googled that problem and found that it's a bug in Gnome. I found a few ideas for workarounds but I could never get any to work
I have never configured any keyrings. I set up Evolution, and it's working, but sometimes Gnome wants me to allow it to access the default keyring to get the email password. It takes 3 cancel-deny tries to finally dismiss this dialog box, after which Evolution is working fine. I see that this is not an Evolution thing. Other users report the same thing in VINO, and on wireless access. The GNOME forum seems to think there is a bug when accessing severs, and has a bug and milestone. Some other distros have the same problem.
One user says that they were able to Delete the default keyring (which must have had an unknown default password) and then create a New default keyring with thier own password. This seems to have solved that user's problem. However there were no instructions on how to do it. I think someone else was able to just stop the default keyring daemon. That would work too, although it's not as elegant. I'm now unable to find instructions.
