Debian Multimedia :: Select Multiple Desktop Environment Using Startx?

Jan 25, 2011

I use Debian Squeeze and I have the following desktop environment installed: fluxbox, lxde, openbox and icewm. I make login in text mode and I start X using startx command manually in terminal. When I do that, fluxbox is loaded, because my ~/.xinitrc is configured this way:

# fix dbus problem
eval "$(dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session)"
# start session
exec startfluxbox


And "%session" is the variable value (fluxbox/lxde/openbox/icewm) chosen during the graphical login. This script works with Slim, but I want to login in a non-graphical mode. Could I use this script somehow to do a non-graphical login using startx? Is there some way that I could run startx with some parameter that it would pass the "%session" value to .xinitrc?

Ubuntu :: Switching Between Kde And Gnome Desktop Environment?

Apr 11, 2011

I have a question about switching between desktop environments like kde and gnome. I'm using ubuntu 10.04 with gnome 2.x and with a really cool theme I found and mixed. I would like to check kde desktop because I kinda like the appearance of it. I have also cairo dock and compiz configured for my needs. my question is whether I can switch to kde desktop without losing my customized gnome environment if I decide to switch back to gnome? (I know that to switch session you need to log out but that's not the point) the next question is how can I install kde without losing the customized gnome theme I have ?( if the answer for the first question is negative)

the final question is whether I lose data when I switch desktop and if do than what specifically.

Ubuntu :: Installing Gnome Desktop Environment On 10.04?

May 24, 2011

I've just rented a dedicated server from [URL]

Its a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 and I want to be able to use gnome desktop environment and connect to it with NX Client from my windows 7.

I have done the basics..

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
sudo apt-get install gnome-desktop-environment

I have done this installations a couple of times before and everytime it's been working for me.

I emailed their support about it as well.

They told me it should work by just doing these first steps, but since it didn't they asked to take a look at it. So they did.

I got this mail back from them:

It seemed that your server is missing some packages/services.

Therefore, I need to ask you first if you acknowledge the ability of being charged with the additional support fee of 37,25 Euro per 15 minutes support?

I will never pay more for 15 minutes of support then I payed for the server thats for sure..

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 / Gnome Flakey Auto Bootup & Shutdown

Mar 29, 2010

I didn't notice any relevant complaints regarding 11.2 in the archives. The bootup & shutdow may be different problems. Randomly my recent install boots up fine or hangs with a blank black screen. A Ctl Alt F2 gets me to a prompt. Startx returns a lockfile comment that X is already running.

From here I can shut 11.2 down and restart it OK. There must be a bootlog kept in /var somewhere. I haven't tried the non-automatic bootup. The shutdown randomly drops back to the logout screen. Usually a shutdown command from there will shut it down. Sometimes shutdown doesn't work, but restart will finish the shutdown.

OpenSUSE Install :: When It Boots First See The Welcome Screen, Then The OpenSUSE Installer, Whether Select The Live (GNOME) Option?

Sep 16, 2010

I have a SONY PCG-R505TE laptop with an external CD/DVD, it connects via what I think is a PCMCIA card, the drive came with the laptop and functions fine. I currently have Windows XP running on this laptop, but it's very slow.I downloaded openSUSE-11.3-GNOME-LiveCD-i686.iso and sucessfully burned it to a CD.I have the laptop bios set to boot from CD, and it appears to be doing that no problem. When it boots I first see the welcome screen, then the openSUSE Installer, whether I select the Live (GNOME) option, or the Installation.. it loads the kernel, and then loads the KIWI boot systemit is on the third event, waiting for CD/DVD dvices to appear... that something seems to fail... I then see Failed to detect CD/DVD or USB drivethen a rebootexception and it reboots in 120 seconds.

OpenSUSE Install :: Select Desktop In Grub ?

Dec 20, 2009

I have installed KDE as my desktop, I have managed to get XMBC working from KDE. At times it would be nice just have XMBC load automatically from boot up. I know that its possible to have XBMC load as the Desktop Enviroment.

Is it possible to have something like this setup for Grub?

1 - openSUSE - KDE (Default)
2 - openSUSE - KDE (SafeMode)
3 - openSUSE - XMBC
4 - Windows XP

If so is it also possible to get more fancy and have KDE goto a login screen and XMBC auto login?

Debian Installation :: Remove Accidentally Installed "Desktop Environment"?

May 30, 2010

I recently started an installation of Debian Lenny. During the install, I accidentally chose to install "Desktop environment" when I meant to de-select it (I hit enter, which was obviously the wrong key to de-select) so what should I do now? Should I restart the install, and be more careful the next time the task selector comes up? Should I let it continue, and uninstall all the X stuff afterwards (and how would I remove ALL of the stuff installed with the "Desktop environment", 10GB hard drive

I heard that it is possibly because I have Lilo on my server, instead of grub. How do I make the desktop-base work?
