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.

[code]....

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 2.6.37.6-0.7-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT 2011-07-21 02:17:24 +0200 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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 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?

Slackware :: Intel Graphics / Vertical Lines From Xpdf/gv Under Xterm Stick To Xterm Window Making It Unreadable?

Jun 13, 2011

Start xpdf or gv. Click an xterm to be active and slide it over xpdf/gv. Vertical lines from xpdf/gv under the xterm stick to the xterm window above and make it unreadable.

The problem does NOT show with KDE default settings with display effects on but does show in fvwm, xfce etc, and in KDE without effects.

On a system with a Sandy Bridge integrated graphics (i5-2400) the problem went away by downgrading to xf86-video-intel-2.13.0. But it was not enough for another system with 945G which needed downgrading to xf86-video-intel-2.12.0.

Ubuntu :: Synergy Auto-start Before Login In LXDE?

I'd like Synergy to auto-start before and after login. After login is fine, but I can't find instructions for getting it to start before login (ie: so I can use synergy to enter user id/password). The Synergy docs don't cover LXDE.

CentOS 5 :: Cannot Find "xterm" To Start A Failsafe Session?

Feb 22, 2010

I just performed a clean install of CentOS 5.4 on a Dell PowerEdge 1950III server. When I booted up for the first time, I begin seeing problems with the following error:There was an error loading the theme TreeFlowerFailed to open file'/usr/share/gdm/themes/TreeFlower/background.png': No such file or directoryOnce I hit OK there I get this:There was an error loading the theme, and the default theme could not be loaded. Attempting to start the standard greeterI then get the standard greeter, and I am able to log in as root. However, once logged in I can open neither Firefox nor a terminal. I can use some programs such as OpenOffice.org, but I cannot use a terminal or a web browser.The next thing I try is to log in to a failsafe terminal session. When I try this I get perhaps the most worrisome error so far:Cannot find "xterm" to start a failsafe session.

OpenSUSE :: Some Keys No Longer Working In Xterm Or Konsole

Aug 8, 2011

Just had a weird problem in konsole at the command line. Some of my keys are not recognized as if they are not being pushed. They work fine in other applications and work fine if I push the Shift key with it and capitalize the letter. Some of the keys are the c, g, r, w, 3, 8,and 9. C, G, R, W, #, *, and ( all work so I do not believe it is hardware as I am using this computer to type this message. It is just at the command line. I don't know what I did to make this happen or how to fix it. I am using openSUSE 11.3 with the KDE 4.4.4 release 3. I tried reinstalling xterm and konsole from yast but it did not fix it.

OpenSUSE Install :: KDE Too Slow On Start Up. OpenSUSE-WindowsXP Dual Boot?

Jul 18, 2011

I have an 1TB hard drive, half of it for Windows XP SP3, another half for OpenSUSE 11.4. After installing OpenSUSE, it didn't take me much time to notice that there was something wrong with KDE: sometimes it loaded quite fast, as expected, but most of the time I'd have to wait around 1 minute in that loading screen. Then I updated the kernel, as well as KDE itself, but that didn't solve the problem.

After that I tried to start the system using Enlightnment, and it was lightning fast compared to KDE, however, I didn't quite like its interface, and for some reason GNOME refused to start. All that was too frustrating to me, so I gave up and have been using Windows for the last few weeks. Got sick of it now and here I am on OpenSUSE again. Oh, it feels sooo much better! BUT, I'm still with the same problem.

My specs are as follow:
Motherboard: Gigabyte MA78GM-S2H (with updated BIOS, version F11)
Processor: AMD Phenom X3 8450
Memory: 2GB
Videocard: Nvidia Geforce 8500GT (using NVIDIA proprietary drivers)
OpenSUSE 11.4
KDE 4.6.0
Did I forget anything important?

Ps.: I didn't have these problems with Mandriva 2010.2, which, if I'm correct, used the same KDE version.
