OpenSUSE Install :: How To Boot Directly To LXDE

Nov 29, 2009

I'm running an old P3 with 512 of Ram.I installed Opensuse 11.2 with the KDE desktop, and then I went online and used the one-click install to install the LXDE desktop.Now I'm trying to get my machine to boot directly to LXDE.If I end a KDE session, I can select LXDE as a new session and get into it fine. It seems to run well on this machine. But if I shutdown from LXDE, my next boot sends me straight into KDE. It seems the only way I can get to LXDE is to be in KDE first, which is kind of defeating the whole reason why I wanted a light weight and quick booting desktop for this machine.Am I missing something? I thought Opensuse automatically rebooted back into whatever desktop was used last?

OpenSUSE Install :: LXDE Live Cd And Can't Boot

Aug 25, 2010

I installed lxde from a live cd and can't boot into anything. At first, when I rebooted, the computer went to grub>, so I used grub commands to find the grub menu lst. It was in (hd0,5). So I made that the root and grub said it was successful. I rebooted, now I get error 25. Was I supposed to enable one of the boot options in the setup? The setup showed two boot options, MBR and root (I think), both disabled. I just clicked continue. Did I mess up the install setup?

OpenSUSE :: LXDE PCMan (Pacman) File Manger Does Not Boot/open BUG?

Sep 8, 2011

I have been using OpenSuse 11.4 LXDE version for about 6-8 months. All worked fine. I noticed a few days ago that my file manager would not start from the tool-bar menu. I went to the kick of menu to find "File Manager" under system tools and it would not start from there either. I created a new folder on the desktop and tried opening it - it would not open. I can only assume its some sort of a bug and most likely occurred because of the recent computer update (I get regular notifications to update my system so I do it).

OpenSUSE Install :: Reboot Directly To Another System?

Jul 7, 2010

in a previous version of openSUSE (I think it was v10.3), there was a possibility to directly/automatically start another OS after exiting (rebooting) openSUSE. This could be done through "right-clicking" on the Reboot (Restart) button from the KDE's log-off dialog and choosing the OS you wanted to be started after the restart. Please, does anybody know if this is possible in openSUSE 11.2 (KDE 4.4)? PS: I know that GRUB enables that, but I prefer a "GUI way" rather than using command line and editing configuration files

OpenSUSE :: Can't Install LXDE/YaST2 Isn't Responding

Jul 3, 2011

Whenever I tried to install LXDE using the 1-click install, YaST2 just freezes and doesn't respond and doesn't install anything. In fact, YaST2 always freezes whenever trying to install a program with the 1-click install.

So my question is, How do you abort YaST2 from installing because obviously the Abort button doesn't even work! And lastly, how can I install LXDE through the terminal as I always never have a problem installing something through the terminal.

OpenSUSE Install :: Upgrade To 11.3 From LXDE Live CD?

Aug 14, 2010

I was using 11.2 quite happily, decided to install 11.3 via the LXDE live CD. Everything seems fine for the moment, apart from the fact that I can't seem to delete the LiveCD user, even when logged in as my own account. Even logging in to a terminal from my own log-in seems to result in a whoami output of linux (the liveCD user).

OpenSUSE Install :: KDE And LXDE Won't Start ; Xterm Okay

Aug 4, 2011

Since this morning, I'm having a problem which symptoms are similar to this one : Cannot Login, KDE won't start - OpenSUSE 11.3, but it affects only one user.Everything was fine yesterday, but now, everytime this one user tries to start his KDE session, the screen goes black for a few seconds before coming back to the login screen.

I tried the following :

- I installed LXDE and tried to log in : same problem

- I tried to log in Xterm : no problem

- I created a new user and tried to log in : no problem, be it KDE or LXDE

- I cleared /tmp : same problem. My /home partition is 98% full but still has 2-3GB available. The / partition is 45% full with 28GB left.


From what I've gathered so far, it seems the problem is user-specific, graphical session-sepcific, but not desktop-specific (since both KDE and freshly installed LXDE fail in the same way)... and now I don't know what else to try.

My setup :

OpenSUSE Tumbleweed
Linux #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-07-21 02:17:24 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Blinking LXDE And Gnome - Fresh Install - Graphics Resolution Is Wrong?

Apr 7, 2011

I've borrowed a copy of 11.4 DVD install disc from someone at work, everything went fine install wise. Except Grub taking control, which I didn't ask it to, but easy fix with yast, problem is firstly my graphics resolution is wrong, but I'm trying to work that one out myself as it always seems to be happening with distros I use on my machine. The weird thing is my desktop blinks! Every 10secs or so the whole screen goes blank and then reappears? I thought it might be the wrong refresh rate, but that's at 60Hz which is correct, would it be the resolution problem?

My hardware:-
P4 2.8
1Gb ram
Geforce FX 5500
Dell 1703FP monitor

I was trying to running diagnostic's from Opensuse, but the blinking was getting on my nerves and I'm not familiar with a non Debian based OS......yet! I've got compiz and all running on the hardware in my Ubuntu install after editing the xorg.conf, could I simply copy that to my Opensuse install?

Ubuntu :: Deletes XP Partition - Can't Boot Directly ?

Feb 28, 2010

I have deleted sda1, sda2 as they were XP partitions that I no longer wanted to use (yay!). After doing so, when I rebooted I just got a blinking cursor. I was able to boot with the Ubuntu 9.10 install CD, and found that I could elect to boot from the first hard drive, and in doing so the usual grub menu was displayed, and I could boot to my Ubuntu 9.10 partition (sda5 inside of sda3 extended partition). So, noobid that I am, I figured I would try to 'fix' grub. ran commands grub>root (hd0,4); grub> setup(hd0)

Now, when I reboot, it goes directly to the grub command line, no multiboot menu, and I cannot find a way to boot to my Ubuntu partition. The partition is still there, though, as I've checked from the Ubuntu CD.

Ubuntu :: Like The System To Boot Directly Into Xbmc?

Apr 30, 2010

I've bought myself an Acer Revo and have 10.04 running nicely on it. After some basic tweaks I have 1080p content playing flawlessly.However, I'd like the system to boot directly into xbmc (no gdm etc). Can anyone suggest how this might be achieved?Under 9.10 I used a minimal install and edited /etc/event.d/tty1 to login a user. .bash_profile was then edited to start xbmc.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Boot Directly To Ext4 Partition?

Apr 30, 2010

I am dual booting Ubuntu 9.10 with ext4 and OS X with hfs+, and I'm getting tired of having to go through Open Firmware, rEFIt, and GRUB to boot to Ubuntu by default. I've done a lot of digging, and my results appear to be inconclusive. I have, however, been able to hypothesize that the reason that I cannot set my ext4 partition as the Startup Disk (via OS X settings) is because OS X does not know how to read ext4. I believe that the Startup Disk settings work by writing to Open Firmware, so I'm thinking that maybe something else would be able to as well, preferably something that is capable of reading ext4.

Slackware :: Unable To Boot Directly In Runlevel 1: Bug Or New Feature?

Nov 16, 2009

Sometimes, when I need to affect some quick changes on my box, I boot up in runlevel 1 by adding "single" to my kernel line in the Grub menu. I use Grub because I also have Vista+RHEL+CentOS for operational reasons and then Slack for everything else.Since I upgraded to Slack13 I noticed that this was not working. I assumed that it was because I had installed on a encrypted LV, so I tried it on VirtualBox installs. I tried both on GRUB and LILO on the Virtual Slack. I tried both the 32 and 64 bit versions. It does not work.
