OpenSUSE Install :: Preventing Autologin That Happens When KDE Can Resume Session

Jan 2, 2011

I usually shut down openSUSE in KDE by clicking the shutdown icon and selecting "Turn Off Computer". When I boot back into openSUSE, my session resumes automatically without it asking for my password.While I don't mind KDE resuming my session because it saves time, me not having to reenter my password is a security risk. How do I turn off the autologin?

OpenSUSE Install :: Inconsistent Autologin / Can't Get Autologin To Work Consistently?

Nov 29, 2009

I've been on 11.2 KDE for about a week (clean install). Previously on 11.1 Gnome. Everything's great except I can't get Autologin to work consistently. It worked perfectly in 11.1 Gnome! In 11.2 KDE sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I set it up as root in both Yast and System Settings.

SUSE / Novell :: OpenSUSE 11.2 And 11.3 Resume Session After Halt/reboot?

Sep 16, 2010

Once I halt my desktop machine and then boot it back up, applications previously open will open automatically. Is this some sort of KDE4 feature? Or what process is responsible for this? And is there some sort of file constantly updated about open programs and once I reboot, this file is read by KDE during the boot-up and those previously open programs will be started automatically?

OpenSUSE Install :: Autologin - Syslog - Kernel Messages - Console

May 9, 2010

What i'm trying to accomplish seems rather silly but is needed for my little project here.

I'm using OpenSuSE 11.2 as a media center PC and need it to login automatically(console not X). That one i accomplished without problems.

However, after login i can see all the info about the services that were started and that needs to "go away".

One could do a "clear" in the .bash_rc and or .bash_profile but it will still show the login prompt which i don't want to see either (i don't even want to see the blinking cursor as well).

Question: How do i accomplish that so that the login console shows only the "splash screen" without any output of the kernel,rc.status nor the "issue-file"... just a plain blank screen ?

Ubuntu Networking :: How To Resume SSH Session After Disconnecting

Mar 7, 2010

I'm currently using putty on my laptop to control my headless server (both Ubuntu 8.04.) I'm running an rsync job that ran all night long and still going all day today so far. I need to restart my laptop, but if I do, I'll break the SSH connection. If I SSH back in, I won't see the same thing (rsync is showing me each file it's copying) that I'm seeing now. (At least I think that's true. Please correct me if I'm wrong.)

So I guess my questions are..Is there some way to restore my SSH session when reconnecting? (So I can resume seeing which file is being copied and - more importantly - when the rsync job (finally) finishes?If not, how else can I know when the rsync job finishes?

Ubuntu :: Continuously Resume A Session From Hibernate

Apr 13, 2010

So I'm having this weird problem where my computer wants to continuously resume a session from hibernate no matter how I shut it down. I think it started when I tried to hibernate my computer with the battery really low. Somehow it messed it up. In any case, it can't resume properly, but gets stuck somewhere in the middle (I think when it's trying to sort out the resume image). Each time I power it on I have to boot it, restart in the middle of the boot so the boot menu comes up as it starts up again, edit commands before boot and add the "noresume" option so it will boot up normally.

OpenSUSE Install :: Enable Autologin With Xfce / No "Login Settings" Option In This Menu?

Dec 26, 2010

I'm using openSUSE 11.3 with Xfce 4.7.0 and I want to enable automatic login. What I have tried so far:

1) YaST -> User and Group Management -> Expert Options -> Login Settings. This didn't work because I have no "Login Settings" option in this menu.

2) Editing variables "DISPLAYMANAGER_AUTOLOGIN" and "DISPLAYMANAGER_PASSWORD_LESS_LOGIN" via YaST -> /etc/sysconfig Editor. This didn't work too and xdm was still asking about name and password no matter what I set here.

3) I don't know how to configure xdm, so I tried to replace xdm with gdm. Gdm worked, but application "gdmsetup" was missing from my installation (YaST simply don't offer this package) and I don't know how to set up gdm manually, so I ended without autologin again.

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Open ConsoleKit Session: Unable To Open Session

Apr 11, 2010

The following message comes up when I boot up: Logging in user Warning: Cannot open ConsoleKit session: Unable to open session: Launch helper exited with unknown return code 0. When I press OK, the system completes the start up and everything looks normal. But when I try to connect to internet, I get the following message:

KNetworkManager cannot start because the installation is misconfigured. System DBUS policy does not allow it to provide user settings; contact your system administrator or distribution. KNetworkManager will not start automatically in future. If I reboot the system, I logg in successfully. So far the problem has appeared approximately upon every second time I boot up. Rebooting the system seems to take care of it.

Don't know what info is of interest. I'm using

Opensuse 11.2
KDE 4.4.2 (Factory)
After upgrade from 4.4.1 to 4.4.2 it worked fine for a week or so.

OpenSUSE Install :: Freeze On Resume From Suspend To RAM?

Mar 29, 2011

There is an intermittent problem with resuming from s2ram. Occasionally, the power button is pressed to resume, the screensaver comes on but the animation is frozen along with the mouse and KB. Sometimes the desktop will show although with the same frozen condition. My swap parition is 2GB. I read in the forums that a small swap partition may cause a somewhat similar condition. I also read a recommendation to disable powersaving and screensaver, again not for my exact symptoms. I would like to find the root cause even if it takes some doing. Otherwise, the system rocks (except Amarok never worked but Kaffeine works for sound). Here are the system specs:

openSUSE 11.3 x86_64
KDE 4.4.4. rel 3
HP xw9400 Workstation AMD 64 Opteron
OCZ Vertex 60GB (dedicated system drive-single boot)

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 - Keyboard Not Working After Resume From Suspend To RAM

Nov 15, 2009

When I resume my system after choosing the "Suspend to RAM" option, the login prompt appears but the keyboard doesn't work at all. (Caps/Num/Scroll don't light up either) The mouse, however, works fine and I'm able to click on the on-screen elements. Since I'm not able to login, I'm forced to reboot and abort the session. Note that this does NOT happen with the "Suspend to Disk" feature. (ie, it works fine).

System Specs:

openSUSE 11.2 KDE4.3 x86_64 (updated)
Sony VAIO VGN-CS17G

Aug 25, 2010

I installed opensuse 11.2 on ASUS R2E nicely It have a 7" touchscreen and works nice. The screen is correctly settled to 800x480 on boot however after a S2RAM it is reinitialized as 800x600. I made an xorg.conf with only one fixed mode on 800x480 but daesn't seems to be considered on resume. After cold boot sax2 get the right size (800x480) and after resume 800x600 The video chipset is intel 945 GM.

May this be related to hardware reinitialization ? How to re-initialize X on resume ?

OpenSUSE Install :: Can't See 'Xfce Session' After Update / Fix It?

Dec 28, 2010

I'm a new openSUSE user. Thought of giving some other distros a try, so I started with openSUSE.

I installed the Xfce packages and when I went to go install a panel plugin, it said that it needed to install some other stuff, including an update of xfce4-session to xfdesktop. After I did this, I could no longer see 'Xfce session' in the "Sessions" part of the log-in menu when I tried to log-in again.

What do I need to do to fix this issue?

OpenSUSE Network :: Install And Configure My Vnc Session ?

Mar 4, 2011

I need some help install and configure my vnc session at my Opensuse.

Right now I have installed nx client which works fine and is listening on port 5901.

I also want vnc to use when I want to check exactly what is going on my work's computer (when I go home)

I am reading the tutorial here:

And I would like to ask you the following

1.

Code:

For VNC client connection remember to open ports 5901-> in the firewall. (1 port/Xsession.) nxserver is listening to 5901. How to configure vnc to listen to 5902.

2. The guide also refers that

Code:

Here we "Prestart" vnc sessions for specific users, therefore no login screen is presented. This uses more resources as the VNC Session is running even when no client is connected to the session watching it. But there in lies it's advantage, "watching a session" and "using a session" are not the same thing! This method is very usefull for starting long running programs before going home. Once home you can re-connect to the session and see how things are going.

I can still login with root in the gui.

OpenSUSE Install :: Kill The Entire Session (as Root) For A User?

May 5, 2010

I've got a somewhat anemic box, resource-wise, set up in the office where any authorized user plus a guest account can log on. Guest is tightly restricted, but we get a lot of people passing through who need one-time or occasional access - this isn't the big problem. What's causing me problems is that a user will log in, walk away or go to the john and the screen locks. Next user (or this one comes back) and winds up doing another login. At the end of a week or so, I may have a couple of dozen sessions listed when I ask for "users". Since some of these session contain open applications they eat up an awful lot of a marginal amount of available memory. How do I kill the entire session (as root) for a user? Gotta be simple but it's not obvious to me.

OpenSUSE Install :: GNOME3, Swared Swaps And "Resume"?

May 28, 2011

openSUSE 11.3 and 11.4 share a swap partition (although this presents a problem in hibernation/resumption), and have happily co-existed for some time. I just installed GNOME 3 on the 11.4 platform, with some minor problems. After shutting down 11.4 w/ GNOME3, booting of 11.3 (KDE) was somewhat messed: workspaces were reduced to one (1), window decorations were those of GNOME 2 (yes, GNOME 2 as installed on 11.3, NOT GNOME 3), and all windows were named "xxxxx (as sean)" (such as "bash (as sean)" or "gkrellm (as sean)") (where "sean" is the username). Curiously, the window background and widgets were KDE, as was the menu.

A clean logout and login seemed to restore the desktop. Assuming a fluke, I repeated the sequence, with the same results. I re-booted 11.4/GNOME 3, shut it down and re-booted 11.3 with "noresume" in GRUB, and all was as it should be.

My guess is that GNOME3 is leaving something(s) in the swap partition that is confusing 11.3 (KDE). This is not a critical problem for me, but I think it should be reported. Question: should it be reported against : a) GNOME 3, b) 11.4, c) 11.3, d) KDE 4.6 or e) all or any combination of the above ?

OpenSUSE Install :: Login To X Session Fails After YaST Online Update

Jun 1, 2011

I got a workstation with openSuse 10.3 pre-installed. After I did the Online Update from YaST2 and rebooted the machine as requested by YaST2, the system came to fail starting up an X session.

Below are excerpts of the message appeared on the screen at the end of the boot process. (I transcripted it from the screen by hand.)

Code:
Waiting for mandatory devices: eth1 __NSC__
10 9 8 7 5 4 3 2 1
eth1 devices: Intel Corporation 82573L Gigabit Ethernet Controller
eth1 DHCP4 client (dhcpcd) is running

[Code].....

what is causing the failure of the X session and how to fix the problem? I would be glad if you give me any hints or pointers.

OpenSUSE Install :: Seamless Mount Of Encrypted Disks And New Session Creation After Each Screen Lock?

Sep 8, 2011

I installed openSUSE 11.4 on HP elitebook 2560p few days ago (using KDE live CD). In general system is working fine, but steel I cannot resolve couple of really annoying issues: 1. I've created encrypted partitions for swap and home during OS installation. As result the system keep asking for passwords for each of encrypted partitions before show login screen. That leads to situation when I have to type 3 passwords during each boot/reboot. I was using the same configuration (swap and home were encrypted) on Ubuntu 11.04 and there both encrypted partitions were mount automatically with no password typing after login to the system. Could you please tell how I can configure the same behavior on openSUSE 11.4 ?

2. I've enabled auto screen lock after 5 mins being inactive. As result when I going back to laptop and to unlock the screen the system shows login screen (default login screen with user selection). But when user and password filled in I click login it creates entire new KDE session. Therefore all staff that was open before screen lock is gone. However old session is still in the system (it appears in output from 'w' command).

OpenSUSE :: Move Transparently Between Run Level 3 And Run Level 5 As Autologin User?

Aug 10, 2010

I've been able to kludge a kill script which finds the correct pid for the kdeserver (or gnome server) after my system comes up in run level 5 so I can drop back to run level 3 mode. Lots of experimentation showed me that using telinit 3 and telinit 5 would occasionally leave the video memory in a mess and I would have the black screen of death.

I set the security parameter setting to autologin for me since I am the only user of my machine, but I still have to kludge the default setting under sysconfig (the DEFAULT_WM) under Window Manager to pick a certain window manager, so it takes time to manually switch the desktop.

Right now I can leave the gui and drop back to cli, but painful experimenting showed me that killing the X server is a no no. Right now I kill the kde server, which sends the SIGTERM to the X windows manager, which then figures out that it has to shut down.

Questions: Is there a better way of doing this? Apparently openSUSE figures that we have multiple users logging into the gui desktop, so the gui is always kept running and a login window with the desktop manager option forces the user to login in. With autologin, this never happens, but no choice of desktop is possible on the fly.

Can some type of script be set up to painlessly enable this to happen? And what is the best way of bringing either the Gnome or KDE desktop manager down gracefully? I do get lots of error messages as the system attempts to recover and X shuts down. It appears that apparently the single user with autologin is left out in the cold.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3: "screen Saver" Locks Session Even Though Disabled?

Aug 19, 2010

On my 11.3 desktop I was annoyed by what I thought was the screen saver locking my session after an idle period, requiring my password to unlock. Well, I didn't want this behaviour and it wasn't supposed to do that, I had disabled every place in the desktop configuration that seemed to be related. I even looked into the KDE4 rc files with a text editor and they all seemed to be in order.

Eventually after some searching I found the answer: It's the setting "lock screen on resume" in the advanced settings > power daemon. Once I turned it off, it was fine; this desktop doesn't need suspend+resume anyway.

It seems that this is not a case of counterintuitive naming; it seems that in some configurations there is a bug where a stray event can trigger a screen lock by the powersaved (?). I don't really understand it, but you can start your investigation here if you are interested:
