OpenSUSE :: Shutdown Gnome Directly Without Getting Exited Into The Login Screen?
Dec 10, 2010
I am running Opensuse 11.3 which had the KDE desktop loaded by default. I have since installed the Gnome desktop which I access via the log in screen whenever I want to use it.
One thing that is annoying me is that whenever I load gnome I am unable to shut down the computer directly from the gnome panel.
When I click the shutdown button, I want the computer to shut down, but rather gnome exits into the login screen and it is from there that I need to click the shutdown button in order to shutdown the computer.
Is there a way to avoid this and be able to shutdown from the gnome panel?
I do not want to uninstall KDE as a solution, I would like the flexibility of having both desktops.
When I boot up 9.10, very occasionally, I get a login screen directly after the page with the Ubuntu b&w symbol and before the colour page. It doesn't happen very often but usually when I am showing someone how good and quick Ubuntu is.
I would like to change the login screen of of my system running openSuse 11.3 GNOME... I have tried most of the methods suggested in various threads on the forum but still not sure what to do.I even tried running
I've got Ubuntu 9.10 with a user account for my wife, and one for myself. "Wake-from-screensaver" should result in "choose user" without having to enter any password. I know how to do that in Windows, but I'm not good with Linux (yet). get past the login screen without passwords (after booting, and after choosing "switch user"), but once the screensaver kicks in and I wake it up again, the system does not present the "choose user" screen. Instead, it either turns off the screensaver and presents the desktop of the most recent user, or (if the screensaver is set to lock the screen) prompt for the user's password (which can be handily surpassed by clicking the "switch user" button and choosing the same user again). So, the login ("choose user") screen has been dealt with. How do I make the (any) screensaver return to the login screen at wake, rather than to the current user's desktop? Windows can do this, I'm sure Linux can too - but how?
I've been searching in google and in this forum on how to change the default gnome login screen in OpenSuSE 11.2?Have read harindaka's thread (How to Downgrade GDM in openSuse 11.2 to one used in 11.1 - openSUSE Forums) but it seems there's no guide for changing the login screen.
It happens like 50% of my Suse 11.2 startups, when I type in my password at login screen and hit enter, Gnome do not start, i can only see the green blank screen,or sometimes it start to show only my custom wallpaper and nothing more, when i try ctrl+alt+backspacex2 and login again everything seems to work fine, but what could be wrong ? is it a hardware issue ? Moreover, sometimes when I want to shutdown my laptop and click the shutdown button, suse do logout, but instead of turning off the laptop , it brings me to login screen, clicking the shutdown button at login screen makes my hdd lamp blink and thats all.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 (and, on another server, 10.10) and can't seem to figure out how to remove the Shutdown and Restart options from the menu on the bottom right of the login screen.
Code: gksudo -u gdm dbus-launch gconf-editor and checking the /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_restart_buttons, but it doesn't do anything even after a reboot. I've also tried the above command as root (without the "-u gdm").
I have also tried adding the following lines to /etc/gdm/custom.conf:
Code: RebootCommand= ShutdownCommand= These seem to have no effect either. Is this a Gnome bug, or am I doing something wrong?
I have a netbook, on which I installed the netbook remix. It had ran fine until one day, I shut it down while it was updating. Now, on bootup, it will take me to the login screen and then basically freezes. The keyboard and mouse do not work and I cannot login to any profile. I tried a clean reinstall, but it only finds the preferences I have and sends me right back to the login screen.
I was messing around with the screen orientation and thought it would be funny to orient it sideways. Big mistake The screen went black.I can force a shutdown, login and I get the same black screen. I tried hooking up an external monitor and the monitor showed no input so I'm guessing my laptop doesn't have that capability with Fedora.This is my main computer.
i want to remove shutdown/restart/hibernate buttons from my gdm login screen on ubuntu 10.10. if i disable these buttons with ubuntu tweak or gdm2setup it is just ignored and all buttons are still there.
I have installed VirtualBox and setup a Windows Vista host, initially with a .vdi of 10gb. That filled up quickly, so I added another 20gb secondary partition, after first trying to allocate a .vdi to a SCSI controller. Configured the drive in Windows (Computer Management), and all seemed ok. I shutdown VB, and rebooted my Linux host (openSuse 11.3). Now I keep bouncing back to the login screen, and can't login to Linux KDE, but can login to a console.I do have the following info:
I did see a message before, that I don't see anymore, that said it could not start NFS services due to missing entry in fstab. Another I'm seeing now is it couldn't start the avahi-daemon, no space left on device. This is odd, since I have a 200GB drive, with half of it left, only max 30GB set to VB. Here's my df -k output:
/dev/sda6 Use% is 100% devtmpfs Use% is 1% tmpfs Use% is 1% /dev/sda7 Use% is 46%
So root "/" is mounted on /dev/sda6, which looks like it could be a problem, but why would this suddenly be a problem after working with VirtualBox? Could this be a matter of just freeing up space on /dev/sda6? Like the /tmp folder that's under "/"?
I've installed openSUSE 11.4 fresh on my laptop. When I do a shutdown from Gnome and choose the Shut Down option I always return back to the login screen and from there I need to choose the shutdown command again and it works from there. Is there a way to fix the first shutdown option from within Gnome so that it shuts down instead of logging out?
I'm running openSUSE 11.2 Gnome Desktop Environment. Whenever I try to either shutdown or restart my machine as a "normal user", I've been logged off instead! When I try to re-login the screen (xorg) freezes. I don't know how to debug this problem. The problem could be related to hal or d-bus or policykit or X-org..... simply I don't know. N.B. I can shutdown and restart my machine only as "super-user" (root).
when I get into the login page, I can only see the background and the login box in the middle of the page just turns whole white and keeps flashing. no response for any clicks. I was force to ctrl+alt+F1 to switch to init 1 to do my work. But I still want to use my graphical desktop either KDE or Gnome is ok. I am using gnome.
downloaded and installed Gnome 3 on top of Ubuntu 11.04, Gnome 3's login screen appears and offers the following login options: Robert/Automatic Login/Other. Selection get nothing except the audio signal.
Have Login/restart/suspend in the upper right corner. Alt-f2 gets me to root login, except my 11.04 root login and password isn't accepted, so can't get in a root. I think that it is the Gnome GUI, as I have seen something about installing Compiz etc. I could just reinstall 11.04 or 10.10 for that matter, but hate to give up. So, if I could find out how to bring up the termainal, and then how to get to where I could add compiz or something??
I unable to connect to samba but after change the register (Windows7 - SambaWiki),I could login and map/access the share drive.but when I try to shudown/restart/logoff win7 , the screen just stop with windows logo without the shutdown/restart words coming out.
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.
When I upgraded to 11.04 and decided to give Gnome 3 a chance I was stuck with a windows 2000 (or Redmond like) theme. I have since been able to change the theme in the desktop environment however the Login Screen still maintains the Windows 2000 like theme. I have extensively Googled how to change this, but I keep coming up empty handed. Does anyone have any ideas of how to change the Login Screen theme.
I searched on the internet and notice that the setup gui for changing gnome login screen is no longer available (e.g. gdmsetup does not come up with a theme that can change login screen theme.)What is the right way or where there may contain such information? I google but most of returned are prior 2.30.2, which is the version currently I am using.
I have installed a LXDE F14 spin into my laptop cause I its older, the thing is that I would like to use Gnome login screen, like where you choose your desktop management and insert your password. I have gnome installed as well..
PS. or can I just update LXDE to the version that comes with F15 (I looked to it quickly and seemed cool) without fresh install ?
I have recently upgraded my System from F13 to F15.
I use an ATOM Board with an Intel N10 graphic chip. It worked without any issue with F13.
F15 boots up, I can see the blue screen with the Fedora Logo. Then it changes to the background picture of gnome and thats is. No login screen. I checked the logs but I am unable to find any hint, why gnome does not boot up completley.
So, here's the story: I did some messing about with the ambiance-maverick-beta theme and it worked fine, but the login screen, missing the default Ambiance theme, defaulted to Clearlooks. Clearlooks. So, I tried upgrading to Maverick, thinking it would default the login screen to the new themes. No such luck.
I tried to open the Open the Laptop I found the I could not find my Login Screen, I can watch my mouse scrolling around and when hit power key show me restart, herbinernate .etc, I tried to log in into console by pressing ALT+CNL+F4, and when typed startx it showed me following error
Fatal Server error: Server is already active for display 0 If this server is no running remove /tmp/.X0-lock and start again Xinit: Resource temporarly unavailable (errno 11): unable to connect to X server Xinit : No such process (Errno 3): server error
I was compiling an application called Audacious. One of the dependent packages I needed to obtain was called Glib. After installing Glib (and a package it also required), my GNOME began failing and after rebooting the computer, the login GNOME login screen fails to displaying. Does anyone know what's gone wrong?
Now after installing Glib, restart your computer and your GNOME will have failed. Why the F did this happen?
