SUSE :: Transparency In LXDE Also Shows The Login Screen Background
Nov 29, 2010
So I have installed LXDE on my SuSE install to have a addition to the GNOME desktop. The installation went fine (of course). But I'm now faced with a problem with the transparency in LXDE, I have a box around my cairo-dock with a piece of my login screen background (looks like the well-known black-box bug. See Screen shot). This is a bit strange and I've been looking at the solutions for the black-box bug since I've had it before, but have not found a way to sort this yetv(though i have found many solutions for the black-box bug itself).
But, not only is this box around cairo-dock, the rest of the transparency in LXDE also shows the login screen background. See screen shot. Screen shot: [URL] As you can see, i haven't had time to work on the eye-candy yet.
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 used to have 9.10 but now upgraded to the latest version. Back then I changed the background to full black for both the preboot screen and login screen.Now after upgrading it changed it to the purple color screen. I am wondering how I can change back the background color?
I'm having a bit of an issue. I was transferring some files from an external hard drive onto my desktop computer running ubuntu 10.04...It filled up the hard drive to the max, rebooted and I couldn't login. Did some googling and thought it might be because it was too full so I plugged the ubuntu HDD into my laptop, removed some files and tried again. Still no luck.
What it does is tries to automatically login (that's how I have it set) at the main login prompt, it for some reason is not able to and the screen flickers a bit and shows the login screen. I enter my username and password and it flickers really quick and goes back to the login screen. Does this for my other user account as well. I can login via the command prompt (ctl-alt-f7) and do stuff there, but I cannot login to the GUI.
After trying to personalize GDM's login screen, I have been able to change the background (If anyone know how to personalize GDM's login screen, Sometimes when I go on the login screen, I see a gray box without anything on it (I try ALT+CTRL+F# and ALT+CTRL+BACKSPACE) but nothing is shown. (No user list nor white box to enter username). So I must restart while it doesn't appear. Here is what GDM's error log gives me ( /var/log/:0-greeter.log ) :
Code: Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "atk-bridge": libatk-bridge.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory (gnome-settings-daemon:1686): Bonobo-WARNING **: Bonobo must be initialized before use (process:1705): DEBUG: Greeter session pid=1705 display=:0.0 xauthority=/var/run/gdm/auth-for-gdm-dn4VnG/database (gnome-settings-daemon:1686): GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: gdk_pixbuf_format_get_name: assertion `format != NULL' failed
With the new changes to RHEL 6, and it being more inline with Fedora, how do you change the login screen background? I'm talking about the main login screen, not after you have logged in and need to change the desktop background. We use a custom background for machines in our lab, and need to implement this on 6.
I use linux mint 8, and I want to change the background for the login screen. For easier and smoother login. Ive googled for days,cand nothing works. I tried GDM2 and I press select new image, but it doesnt work. Do I need the image in a certain folder?
Why do I have a log in screen and no mouse on PCLinuxOS live install. I have the blue background and the graphics but no mouse and just a log in screen. I can log in root/root or guest/guest but not much else whats up.
I don't know what caused it, but as I boot into Ubuntu (9.10), the login screen never appears. Boot splash shows,then the cursor shows up but never the login screen. I haven't found anything that will reset the default gdm or login screen that works.
I set login automatically in the login screen in the systems menu. but on after every boot it shows the login screen many times even after a correct login, and sometimes it doesn't show. I already updated my system so what should I do so that no more login screens after boot?
Well this problem has been here since Lucid. When I start up my computer and select Ubuntu, I get a blinking underscore for about most of the start up time for Ubuntu. Then It quickly shows the nice Ubuntu Loading Screen (Plymouth) for about two seconds, then it gets to the login screen. I am using the Open Source ATI drivers, I believe the open drivers are called "radeon".
I am trying to set up xfce so that I can be able to switch between multiple users. To do so I seem to need gdm. So I installed it from slackbuilds.org, but the login screen shows rectangles instead of text.
I have centos 5.3 i got the login screen but after logging shows error as-- your session only last less than 10 seconds . if you have not logged out yourself tyhis could mean that there is some installation problem or that you may out of disk space .try logging with one of fail session.
I tried installing 10.04 via Wubi on a friend's notebook and have hit problems with the display. The installation seemed to proceed OK (took ages to download / install - left it running overnight) until it came to boot to Ubuntu. The GRUB menu appears OK, but choosing Ubuntu leads to a blank screen with some icons at the bottom, which is displayed for a few seconds, then the (login?) screen just shows rolling display, like an out-of-tune analogue TV. I suspect that I need a graphics driver or something? The notebook is a logiQ notebook, with 128MB SiS Mirage-3 graphics.
After a fresh install of Fedora 12 I'm delivered to the image on the attachment. Well aside from not being able to see icons on the left, or go to the any terminal and not seeing anything and be forced to blind type and hope for the best there are some other issues. Enabling panel transparency shows video artefacts on the panel.nouveau doesn't enable 3D(I use a NVidia GeForce 9600 GT 512MB and my monitor is a ACER LCD X223W)) kind and point me to resources about the nouveau driver and how to configure it so it starts to work?
I have just bought a PC with SUSE 10.1-0. The first time I started the PC an installation menu appeared. I didn't define a user name, thinking that it should log in automatically (as in Windows occurs), but now I can't go farther from the Welcome screen, due to the system is asking me de user and password, but I didn't introduce nothing! Leaving username and password in blank didn't solve the matter.
I can see the admin screen (pressing F10) but I am not able to find any user to log (logically) and I can't include new users from there.
I have also tried to install Windows XP modifying the BIOS but the system returns a message (once in the WinXP installation program) about an error called 4096, about the file i386halaacpi.dll, which is unable to find (something about the HAL), so I am afraid that my (new) RAM memory is damaged.
What could I do? The system is for an old person, so I would like to install finally WinXP and delete Suse.
I finished making a custom build OS of openSUSE 11.4 using suse studio but when I tried running the LIVE DVD in a laptop with an ATi Mobility Radeon HD 4250, I got a black screen. Everything from the word go seemed fine showing everything from the loading Kernel message, but the screen that is supposed to show the user accounts is surprisingly absent and only a black screen in its place.
I have only seen this problem with ATi graphics, Intel graphics work just fine. I haven't tested it on a laptop with nvidia. I'm using the default openSUSE 11.4 Kernel (Kernel-Desktop 22.214.171.124-0.5.1), Xorg-X11-driver-video-radeonhd 1.3.0_20100512_80ba041-2.1, Mesa 7.10.2-7.3.1, Xorg-X11 7.6-43.44.1. I have listed these few packages contained in the build, but I'm not sure where to look or what I may be missing.
bought a craigslist video card that works for me, but in trying to get sound as well as the video (which does work) on the big screen, I ended up upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04.I now have the 11.04 installed (but not the desktop. Apparently I don't have the hardware for that!), but on the big screen, I only have the background image, not the desktop panels, etc.
I need a locked 'screensaver' that shows the real background/desktop (icons and open windows) so that my boss can see what I was working on, but my peers can't mess with it. All the Ubuntu screensavers as far as I can tell either manipulate pictures or do some 3D/2D graphics.
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.
I just added "export PATH=.:'printevn PATH'" to ~/.bashrc, then i can't use any commands, like "vim" or 'ls', it shows 'command not found'.
I cound't figure it out why. Then I logged out and tried to login. Another more serious problem occurred. after I type in login id and pass, it shows login seems to be right, but it doesn't login normally, but immediately bring me back to the login dialog box, and ask me to type log info again. I tried many times, it just constantly brought me back to the login page.
I have written a script, lets call it B, that calls scripts A1 to A9. I want to run the A scripts simultaneously since they can take up to 3 hrs to complete. As you might expect, I use the & to run the script in background. I am looking for a mechanism to evaluate the return code from the A scripts when they eventually complete?
