OpenSUSE :: Changing Wallpaper Causes Automatic Logout - Suse 11.2 KDE

Mar 21, 2010

Just ran into this issue with Suse 11.2. Everytime I try to change the desktop wallpaper, plasma crashes and returns me to the log in screen. This is the first time this has happened and it happens no matter what wallpaper I choose. Desktop effects are OFF. Strange that adding widgets to the desktop does NOT cause this crash, just changing the desktop wallpaper. The computer is using 855GM Intel Chipset.

OpenSUSE :: Wallpaper Over 2 Monitors In KDE4 - SuSE 11.1

Jan 2, 2009

I've just installed SuSE 11.1, and have so far been able to get my dual monitor setup to play nice. Both monitors are operational, and function fine from an application point of view (3200x1200 res), but KDE refuses to display my wallpaper over both monitors. In fact, I cannot set the wallpaper for my second monitor at all (it's stuck to the default green SuSE wallpaper or a fixed color). As a side effect: widgets also refuse to be moved from one monitor to the next. Applications can be moved fine, even put half on one monitor and half on the other, but the widgets and the wallpaper refuse to cooperate. This worked fine for me with SuSE 10.3.

Ubuntu :: Automatic Wallpaper Update?

Dec 17, 2010

I have Ubuntu Lucid and am wondering how to have the wallpapers in the Background tab of the Appearances dialog box update automatically when I add a wallpaper to /usr/share/backgrounds. Or should I be putting them somewhere else for this to happen? I have several accounts on my computer and can't go into each account and manually update whenever I add a wallpaper

Ubuntu Security :: Automatic Logout - Auth Log Indicates Failed Login Attempt?

Mar 3, 2010

A few minutes ago I was using google chrome when suddenly the scroll-lock indicator on my keyboard turned on... I pressed the scroll-lock key, but nothing happened, the light remained. I opened a terminal and ran "top" to find what processes were running when I was automatically logged out. I logged back and checked the logs and found the following entries in my auth.log:

CRON[2971]: pam_unix(cron:session): session opened for user root by (uid=0)
CRON[2971]: pam_unix(cron:session): session closed for user root

Ubuntu :: Changing Log-in Wallpaper In 10.04?

Jul 25, 2011

I just wrote a little script to help anyone out if they want to do this. Just download open your terminal and cd to the download directory run


sudo chmod 744 loginWallpaper

then run



and follow the prompts Make sure the pic you want to use is a .JPG and is in your home directory. Choose Option 1 on your first run. It will move the pic to the proper directory on the system and will open the Gnome Appearance Preferences at the log-in screen. After you run Option 1 logout, goto Background then Add button. Select your wallpaper and "BOOM" it changes. Log back in and run the script again



only use Option 2 to keep the Gnome Appearance Preferences from opening again.

Fedora :: Stuck In Infinite Loop On Login After Changing Wallpaper?

Aug 17, 2011

Fedora 15, fresh install.I changed the wallpaper from default to a solid colour. After switching between gradient to colour the system crashed logged me out and upon logging in it simply runs endlessly accessing my harddisk but never actually loading the desktop.I can kill X and reboot, but it's the same problem waiting for me on restart. I really don't want to re-install or delete users (to put it in context, I just spent 3 days trying to install Fedora because Anaconda doesn't know how to install GRUB correctly).

SUSE / Novell :: Enable Automatic Loading Of KDE On Startup In 11.1?

Dec 20, 2008

I have updated from 10.2 to 11.1. When 11.1 starts I get into the CLI rather than an automatic startup of KDE. I can login at the CLI, then type "startx" to start KDE. I know there is someway to automatically start KDE when the computer boots, but just can't seem to find it. Can someone point me in the right direction? With 10.2 I was able to automatically load KDE as myself as user and would like to have that again in 11.1.

Programming :: Bash Script For Automatic Viewport Changing And Other WM Stuff (works With Compiz)?

Oct 18, 2010

I had to make for work a collectd based network monitoring system which displays data for each server in a fullscreen conky on different compiz viewports. I have to switch viewports automatically when the machine isn't operated (sorta screensaver) and also if i had to call attention in the case something bad happens, autoswitching should stop and the relevant viewport be showed up.This requires an interface to talk dynamically to the WM, which i've implemented in bash with support of the widely available "wmctrl" program.

Debian Configuration :: XFCE Logout Doesn't Completely Logout Of System / Solution For This?

Oct 17, 2010

As a normal user I have activated the functions of the Quit applet, i.e. Logout, Shutdown and Restart are active buttons. I am able to restart or shutdown, no problems. But when I use the Logout button I don't get logged out, just returned to the login shell & I am still logged in as my user. I don't have a display manager installed and I do NOT want to use a display manager such as XDM or GDM. How do I get the Logout button to actually logout the user? It appears I am only getting logged out of the x-session, but I want complete logout.

Sep 8, 2010

An old problem has resurfaced I can't get sound on my tvcard after changing hardware!!My current Motherboard is GA-MA785GPM-UD2H from Gigabyte.My Processor is AMD Athlon II X2 250.My OS is openSUSE 11.3_x86_64.

In fact I have switched my system packages to packman repository.The 'sox' script the I used for so long, looks like this.


I know that line 3 is commented, but still it used to work; & I have tried uncommenting it but to avail. It used to work like a charm but now ever time I try to execute the script, it says emon@magic-box:~> /home/emon/sox_script_for_tv.sox FAIL formats: can't open output file `/dev/dsp': Device or resource busy.

OpenSUSE :: Hangs On SSH Logout?

May 4, 2010

I've been using OpenSUSE (11.2) and ssh to access my Ubuntu Server (8.04). The problem is that when I give the shutdown command to turn off the server (sudo shutdown -P now), OpenSUSE hangs and I can't close bash and the computer locks up. I then need to turn my OpenSUSE box off by pushing the power button. Any idea what might be causig this?I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this question because I don't think this is a bash problem but I wasn't really sure where to ask this question.

OpenSUSE :: Logout Cancelled If VLC Running

Apr 7, 2011

Whenever vlc is running and I try to log out, a KDE window opens and tells me "logout cancelled by vlc". I have to repeat the process. How do I disable this unwanted "feature"? What if Thunderbird, Firefox, LibreOffice, Gwenview etc. all decided I shouldn't log out? Would I have to log out six or seven times? Doesn't sound logical to me.

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Launch Script During Logout

Feb 12, 2011

I know how to launch a script whenever I turn off my computer; I just have to add it in the file /etc/halt.local. Such a script is launched just before the computer stops. Now I'd like to launch a script whenever I log out from my account. I'd like that, each time I log out from my account for instance to let someone else work with my computer on his own account, a script is automatically launched. I know how to launch a script when logging IN but not when logging out.
