OpenSUSE :: KDE 4 Session Start Glitch

Jun 3, 2010

When KDE starts up a new session, it restores the progs that were running at log out last time.I am running skype and that prog is brought back but I suspect that KDE is restarting the "bin" (skype-bin) rather than the startup script (skpe) which contains the necessary "LD_PRELOAD" stuff essential to get the webcam operating OK.I can't find where KDE stores the session info, any ideas?

OpenSUSE :: How To Make Computer Start KDE Session By Asking Username And Password?

May 20, 2011

I am using OpenSUSE 11.4 on my office desktop computer. I would like to prevent users tinkering my computer, since there are personal and important files. How can I ask a username and password? I have one of course, but it is asked only if I log out and then log in. In the first boot, everyone can reach the KDE desktop.I am pretty sure it is an easy task.

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 :: 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.

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 :: Can't Login / Checkproc: Can Not Get Session Id For Process 9839?

I was working normally and the GUI just failed, all I could still see were any open windows. I rebooted the machine from tty1 and now I can't login anymore under my normal user accounts.

I enter my credentials, it appears to login, and immediately goes back to the login screen. Note that under tty1 I can still login with my user account and do everything.

I can still login with root in the gui.

/var/log/messages says this

Code:machine checkproc: checkproc: can not get session id for process 9839!

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 :: Login To X Session Fails After YaST Online Update

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.)

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 :: Invoking The Gnome Start Menu From The Command Line?

Jun 28, 2010

I'm wanting to be able to run the Open Suse start menu from the command line.king remotely, I have found that I have faster response time by only running specific X components instead of an entire desktop (particularly useful under Windows 7 Cygwin). Specifically, I'd like to invoke the start menu from a ssh command line.On Linux Mint,line command is:mintmenuWhat is the equivalent command to bring up the Slab Start Menu on Open Suse?

Slackware :: New 13.1 Install The System Boot To A Command Prompt And Then Run /etc/rc.d/rc.4 To Start X?

Jul 9, 2010

2nd and 3rd might be linux kernel problems but may help someone else so I included here.1st -- run level 4, /etc/rc.d/rc.4 and xdm -nodaemonJust installed 13.1 on an odd system, including building a new kernel.One thing I do is have the system boot to a command prompt and then run /etc/rc.d/rc.4 to start XBut I found that the rc.4 uses xdm -nodaemon flag and it was causing problems so I removed and all is pretty good. I still see some odd behavior with the virtual ttys sometimes.2nd -- when building a new kernel, I found I need the device-mapper butcouldn't tell if that was a linux kernel issue or something to do with lilo, I didn't want and don't need multiple disk devices like for LVM or MD so I didn't plan to have this enabled.3rd -- CONFIG_EXT4_USE_FOR_EXT23 When that kernel config option was selected and I have only an EXT4 filesystem, the filesystem was mounted as an EXT2, even though the kernel had no EXT2 feature. /etc/fstab specified EXT4 but the mount command showed EXT2. A silent problem that could leave an unpleasant surprise since EXT2 hos no journaling.4th -- I had to run lilo -C by hand in a virtual tty before finishing the install. This was what I had to do when installing 13.0 on different hardware. It seems that the lilo part of the install needs some sorting out.

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).

Debian :: Gnome Session Won't Start

Gnome sessions started hanging during login on a debian lenny box, and I can only think it's related to a recent package update as it was working fine before the last set. It affects all user accounts and hangs before the applications menu or any icons appear on the panels, but after after the top /bottom panels and the desktop background appears.

Debian :: How To Start X Session In New Terminal

Apr 20, 2015

System: Debian 7 Wheezy amd64 - Gnome classic - gdm3

I'm trying to create a new gdm session in tty8, so I can switch between tty7 and tty8 running simultaneously.

How can I accomplish this? I found some website suggesting to run startx and also startx gnome-session -- :1 vt8 Both result in a black screen, blocking the overall system, not allowing me to go to tty1 nor any tty. I have to run REINSUB to restart the system.

# I don't know if tty is the exact term to refer to the CTRL+ALT+Fx virtual terminals.

Ubuntu :: Start A VNC Session Any Way But Vncserver?

Jul 19, 2010

I am trying to VNC into a server to which I have no physical access (but I can ask someone to start a session or something) but can ssh into. I have gotten a VNC session working by sshing in and running vncserver, although once the VNC session died in a confusing manner.

I don't know how to start a VNC session any way but vncserver, which is odd since I'm sure that Ubuntu's Remote desktop should somehow allow me to do this by default. The server by the way is being used as a desktop by someone else. Also, how do I tell if my VNC is encrypted and if it isn't how do I make sure it is?

Ubuntu :: Gdm Will Not Start Gnome Session?

Jul 31, 2010

I'm having issues logging into my system... After authenticating via GDM, the screen goes black with only the mouse showing and remains this way indefinitely. At first the hard disk is active to a similar degree as it was when logins were successful, but then the system (apart from being able to move the mouse) is unresponsive.

If left for long enough so that the screen goes into power-saving mode, moving the mouse brings up the unlock dialogue that you normally get if you set your computer to lock itself after a period of idleness.

I suspect some sort of file corruption, as I have not changed any settings recently. I have forced checks on all of my disks in the hope it would solve this problem. I have also tested logging in on a freshly created user account I created which gives the same result. Also, starting an xterm session from GDM works fine.
