Red Hat :: Gnome-terminal Starts Automatically On Gnome Logon?

May 30, 2010

I'm running CentOS 5.4 on i386 machine with 2.6.18-194.3.1.el5Whenever I login into Gnome, a gnome-termial window comes up. Instantly title says root@localhost before settling with user@localhost with current directory as ~/Downloads. Only happens with my particular user account (normal user), not with root as I tried. I also have KDE, Xfce, Fluxbox as other option at login, but terminal only shows up when I log into Gnome (not kde, xfce or fluxbox)I've done and

1. cronetab -e
Nothing there.
2. Don't have ~/.xinitrc ~/.session
3. Nothing in ~/.bashrc or ~/.bash_profile
4. Nothing in /etc/rc.local

Fedora :: Cannot Logon To Gnome 3

May 26, 2011

I've installed F15 but due to the old age of my tablet (HP TC1100), I cannot logon to Gnome 3. It say something like "Opps, sorry something went wrong..." and then puts me back to the logon prompt. Is there any way I can logon to Gnome using the old layout? I installed KDE during install but couldn't find anything that would allow me to change how I logon to Gnome.

Debian :: Gnome-sessions Option Not Available At Logon?

Jan 30, 2011

I have been running Lenny with the non-free nVidia drivers for a while now, but decided to run testing RC2.When I was done my monitor had a solid blue-gray background and the mouse pointer, but none of the GUI parts displayed (blank). After a couple of checks I went back to the gdm logon screen and opened 'sessions' to _not_ find Gnome as one of the choices. So I logged into Gnome(failsafe) and got my full GUI.Console (F1) and xterm also work fine.Trying to get my Gnome Desktop back. GDM is working and I have the session choice for TWM, but with Gnome(failsafe) working I haven't tried it yet to see if it works.

Nov 23, 2010

I have updated my 11.3x64 recently and after updateI cannot log into any X session.Keyboard is dead but mouse is moving fine.I tried to change kdm to gdm - no result!All I can do now is - select by mouse "Console Session"and log in to common terminal.

Fedora :: F12 - X Starts But No Gnome Or Kde

Feb 6, 2010

I've installed F12, updated to today. I've set it to boot to runlevel 3. That works. If I run startx, X starts - I see the mouse cursor and the blue/green background. But no panels. No desktop icons.

I tried switchdesk kde, then startx. Same thing. Except kde is running because if I right-click on the desktop, I get a kde dialog that allows me to start an app.

Tried switchdesk gnome. Same thing. Rebooted, same thing.

Fedora :: How To Run A Script When Gnome Starts Up

Ubuntu :: Gnome Desktop Starts After Everything Else?

May 26, 2010

I love Ubuntu but since upgrading to 10.04 have 2 probs. The first, which I have posted in another thread, is the splash screen. The second is this: with compiz, startup occurs in this order:

1. Gnome do dock and pointer appear on black background with no panels or desktop
2. Some hard drive activity
3. 10 secs no hard drive activity still no desktop
4. Gnome Desktop and panels finally appear with wireless already connected

It seems to me that the Gnome/compiz desktop is loaded only after everything else, including wireless and all services/processes. Compiz works fine, I am not short of ram or resources (2 Gb + Core 2 duo@2.7ghz). My question is then, is there a way to change the order of startup so that the desktop/compiz appears more quickly?

Ubuntu :: Kubuntu 10.04 Starts Up With GNOME?

Aug 7, 2010

I have just started up Kubuntu, and it shows the Ubuntu desktop instead of Plasma. Before this, the only change I did was remove my Broadcom WiFi card because Kubuntu sometimes couldn't boot because of some error mentioning the bcm driver and phy5.

I removed the card, and no errors on boot. Now, I can't get on the internet because Kubuntu can't connect to anything. I see all of the networks, but I guess GNOME is interfering with Network Manager...

OpenSUSE :: Gnome No Longer Starts After Update?

Jan 21, 2011

since the last SuSE online update (last Wednesday?) the X server no longer starts on our notebook (ATI HD 4200) so we only have the consoles available, which limits the WAF heavily . We were using SuSE 11.3 with the Gnome desktop for about one months and it worked smoothly, but since the update (which included a kernel update to the X server tries to start 5 times and then gives up. All logfiles end with:

[ 13.899] Segmentation fault at address 0x3c
[ 13.899]
Fatal server error:


I used the ati driver ati-fglrxG02-kmp-desktop, version 8.762_k2.6.34.0_12-31.1 from the ATI Suse repository. To solve the problem I already switched to the Xorg driver which lead to a color distorted display but no segmentation fault. But I'd like to get the ati driver running again.

Ubuntu :: Run A Script After Gnome Desktop Starts?

Feb 8, 2010

How do I run a script after gnome desktop starts? I want to run asterisk -rx reload as a command or a script AFTER gnome desktop (gui) loads, not during the boot process.For some reason my trunks are not loading in asterisk. If I set asterisk -rx reload in a script and run update-rc.d I can see the script run as everything boots but my trunks don't load. If I run the command after the gui loads the trunks reload and go online.

Ubuntu :: GNOME Only Starts In Safe Mode?

Oct 14, 2010

I did a clean install of 10.10 on my Asus A6R laptop today. Previously i had 10.04 on it.

After installation and the first reboot my GNOME won't start in normal session. If I select Ubuntu Desktop Edition (safe mode) everything works fine, but on the normal Ubuntu Desktop Edition session, GNOME just won't start. I have a mouse cursor that i can move around and a normal background. Also i can hear the usual startup sound.

Ubuntu :: Bash Broken, Lost Functionality In Terminal (gnome-terminal)?

Dec 10, 2010

Linux-goers. I did some research on this, but I am still fairly new to Linux. In Ubuntu 10.10 (Maverick), I accidentally overwrote my "/bin/bash" file. Dude, using "sudo" with a small typo can work disasters. Bash is now broken in the Terminal (gnome-terminal). Terminal itself still works fine, technically, but bash is still hosed/broken. Here is what I did to try to fix it: Booted from Ubuntu 10.10 live CD. Mounted my Ubuntu partition and manually copied the good/fresh "bash" file onto my hard drive. Verified copy was successful. Didn't help, as you see. Reinstalled "gnome-terminal" using synaptic package manager. Tried to reinstall bash via synaptic, it failed with error, "E: /var/cache/apt/archives/bash_4.1-2ubuntu4_i386.deb: subprocess new pre-removal script returned error exit status 2"

In Terminal, all basic commands work as far as I can tell. ("ls", "pwd", navigation, etc.) Here are some problems:My "username@computername" does not display in the prompt; only the $ sign. Bash keyboard shortcuts such as uparrow and tab do not work. Instead, each inserts a key code. I can't even move the cursor left/right. Aliases (a function of bash and .bashrc) are broken, of course. My sanity level decreases when I use Terminal now. For what it's worth, even with "sudo" I get a "permission denied" error when trying to run Google Chrome! I read something about a ".bashrc" file being a possible problem, but I don't know how to make it work, or the file's proper locations in Ubuntu 10.10. Is there something I can do with a "make" or "apt-get install" command or something?? Could this simply be a permissions problem? Is the link to "/bin/bash", "/bin/sh", or a ".bashrc" file broken? Guide me, oh Linux gurus.

P.S. I always wondered what exactly bash was and how it was different from the basic terminal. LoL, this is an excellent way to demonstrate the difference, and I WANT IT BACK!

Ubuntu :: Can't Turn On Terminal Bell In Gnome-terminal Using Remote Screen Session With Irssi

Nov 6, 2010

I'm using 10.04, and gnome-terminal GNOME Terminal 2.30.2 . I have irssi running on screen session on remote host. And I've been struggling for quite many days to configure it to produce either visual feedback or ring terminal's bell when I receive a private message or one of those that are highlighted.

My compiz settings window in General tab has 'Audible bell' checked.

My GNOME terminal has 'Terminal bell' checked.

I also added 'set bell-style audible' to my ~/.inputrc

And I also tried to manually load pcspkr module into my kernel.

No of the above helped or at least I haven't been able to notice any difference.

I also used some commands for irssi to produce bell sign.

Debian Multimedia :: Xcompmgr 'master' - Rounded Window Borders Don't Draw And Redraw Properly When Using The Terminal (gnome-terminal And The LXDE And Xfce Ones)

Aug 26, 2011

I find xcompmgr more than adequate for making a desktop look pretty modern, and I don't like the more extravagentCompiz gimmicks - but there is one thing that irritates when using xcompmgr which someone here might have worked round.

Rounded window borders don't draw and redraw properly when using the Terminal (gnome-terminal and the LXDE and Xfce ones) or system monitor and moving them from their default place. You get this little white botch at the corners. I'm not massively technical and I'm ambivalent about how much more I want to learn as I have plenty of creative outlets already, but I would like to solve this. Somehow xcompmgr is treating these programs as a different class? It's capable of drawing the window borders properly as it is just these two programs that get botched. Possibly this doesn't get noticed as maybe people usually use xcompmgr with openbox and LXDE and their square window borders. I did do a search but there was nothing matching what I saw.

OpenSUSE :: 11.3 GNOME Constantly Locks Up Or Automatically Logs Out?

Jul 20, 2010

I'm running 11.3 with GNOME on my Dell Inspiron 1525 with on board Intel video card. I had 11.2 64 bit running but did a fresh install of 11.3 with the 32 bit version. When the problems started occurring (locking up, logging out by itself, applications crashing that were fine in 11.2...), I tried reinstalling. When that didn't help I tried the 64 bit 11.3 but the problems keep happening. I can't get any work done. I've noticed that these occur while the computer is idle (either screensaver or later after the display has been turned off). I'll come back to my computer and notice that either the computer is locked up (screensaver frozen, audio on a one-second-loop...) and have to restart the computer or I come back to find the login screen waiting for me (and obviously have a new session when I log in).

Ubuntu :: Firefox Change Locales With Gnome Automatically

Apr 25, 2010

I have my 10.04 set up with english (us and gb) as well as spanish languages installed.

I have firefox 3.6.3 compiled and installed for a 64 bit system. The firefox source code comes only with en-US locale, so I obtained en-GB.jar and es-ES.jar (as well as their manifests) from and added them manually to my chrome directory.

This had worked in the past, when I'd logout and switch the gnome locale to es-ES firefox would come up in es-ES etc, but for some reason firefox will only start up in en-US now.

How can I fix this to match the desired behaviour?
