Slackware :: Set Default User And/or Password In Console Login, Automate Startx?
Jun 23, 2010
- is there a way to set the default user in console login so that all needed is to press enter(or event without it) to be able to input the password for that user - also is it possible to console login without password, by just inputting user name and pressing enter how to put startx for that user right on login, so that the user doesn't input the command manually
Slackware 12.0 (GNU/linux kernel 2.6) I am said slackware is very stable (I suppose this means it has few bugs). However, every time I run startx to start the graphical interface, for a brief moment I can see (just before the screen is put in graphical mode) a lot of error messages. How can this be? I use slack 12 a lot and have reinstalled this distro many times. However the described behavior always repeats.
I want to add 50 new users, not on the server yet I want to add them all to group Accounting - with 1 option, not user by user I want to setup a default password for them all, and have it say something like 'You must now change password or no access will be permitted' Any other options I also want to do once, not for each user?
I'm running Debian Wheezy and I don't know why, but whenI switch to console F1(Ctrl+Alt+f1) I can't enter login information. It's like Debian didn't have completely starting and wait always.The F1 console looks like this:
I have installed the new phpMyadmin3.4.1 on a server running Ubuntu 9.10 with apache and mysql. It runs on php5.2.10The apache config seems fine as the virtual directory that I configured works fine. http://<ip-of-server>/phpmyadminlink works. The home page is displayed. But when I enter the user name and password, instead of logging into the console, it again redirects me to the index page of the site. There are no errors displayed. I have checked that cookies on browser are enabled.The server is hosted on amazon web services, if that makes any difference
I avoid capslock like the plague and use "ctrl:nocaps" when in X, and would like to have the same behaviour in the console. Back when I was using Debian I got it set up the way I want, but now I can't seem to locate the default keymap. I tried editing
I had successfully installed centOS,i am able to login as root.I created local users.But unable to login via console and FTP.As per the logs there were some LDAP issue,so i disabled LDAP and disabled PAM config as well.Now i am able to login to the FTP with the local users created.unable to login to the centOS console with the local user.
The author (somewhere on these Ubuntu forums directed........ Ctrl + Alt + F1 which I thought was going to be the "Terminal" but nothing similar. I have about a half dozen different names/passwords for Ubuntu but none will work to log in. How to get out of this text console and back to Ubuntu GUI? And, how to read my lost LogIn name and password for this "Text Console"?
I'm seeing really bad user login format under a standard installation and am wondering why ubuntu does this as default. I have noticed that the graphical login for gnome sizes itself to accommodate a user's exact password length. This indicates to me that somewhere on the unencrypted part of a standard installation with user encryption contains at least some indication of the content of the password length which seems a security flaw even if not a complete hole, it majorly reduces the number of attempts a cracker would have to cycle through.
And that's assuming that *only* the length is contained. Furthermore it seems that it would be MUCH better to simply display the number of characters entered into the pw field and allowing the gui to expand itself from an fixed size as the field is filled out so the the user still receives visual feedback for entering characters. Either a simple character count display should be entered into the field or a 10 dot to new line so that one can visually quickly count the number enter by multiplying from a 10base graphical observation.
I have sometimes wished to place a reminder, to be displayed after I login. And what I did was to write it in /etc/motd or in /etc/issue. But something in the system erases or writes a new motd/issue.What would be the easiest way to have a reminder printed on the console just after login?
I downloaded nagserver.i686-0.0.1.vmx.tar.gz - unzipped ok - my vmware player loads it up nicely. Unfortunately I don't know the login and password - also don't know the root as well. I tried searching the internet and this forum for the default logins and passwords but couldn't find it. It's a VM running on opensuse 11.2 and I'm stuck at the login prompt.
After setting up a persistent Lubuntu (10.10) on a 4GB SD with Universal-USB-Installer-184.108.40.206 , I started changing the passwd of the original user ubuntu , but after rebooting, I can't log in. So I resorted to hitting Ctrl+the function key that gives you a CLI, and changed the password for "ubuntu" user then tried to log on again. No success.Then I created a new user with a password, and managed to log in with this user, but it is not the same experience, the menus are lacking, and it is not possible to log on to wifi, similar problem to this user
My desktop won't come up automatically now on a hard disk of mine (see below for the Ubuntu version history). It does boot up with Grub etc; then the Ubuntu load up bar thing with the timer spinning around [I hope you can understand this technical language!] goes through ok but then instead of getting the user interface with the little boxes to enter my login and password, the whole screen is in black (as if it's in Terminal mode). This black screen then asks me for my login and password: when I entered them, it said:
Starting up......loading, please wait 19 + 0 records in 19 + 0 records out kinit: [followed by a load of technical stuff and a series of numbers] kinit: trying to resume from /dev/disk/ by-uuid/9b [then a whole series of numbers] kinit: no resume image, doing normal boot.
Not sure how to do this on 9.10. After upgrading I noticed that the login screen is displying the users of the machine; however, I want to login screen to ask for username and password, without showing the users.
Is there a way to get the login screen to disable the saved users? Or a way to make the login screen ask for username and password?
Ubuntu 8.10 does not ask for a password to login. I have only one user set up. I have set the user password from System > Administration > Users & Groups. Still does not ask for password > logs in straight away.
I accedently typed in a command in the terminal that made my computer load up without typing in user name or password. i would love you have that back. is there a command that you can use to get back there login screen. i am using ubuntu 9.10. i also dont know what the command was that i typed...
One of my users has a bit of a problem. I forced password change for this user, and the user thought that it was simply asking for the password again. I had to use my godlike powers to change the users password again. And here comes trouble.The user cannot log in. The system accept the password and we can see the background screen and some messages, but that is all.Quote:Could not update ICEauthoroty file /home/user/.ICEauthorotyQuote: There are problems with configurationsserver.(/usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exit with status 256)Quote:Nautilus couldn't create following folders necessary: /home/user/Desktop, /home/user/.nautilus.Please create these folders before you run Nautilus, or set permission so Nautilus can create them
Second off, I'm trying to capture a user password on login (through gdm) such that I can re-use it for a service like Kerberos or AFS. The idea is that the user has to log in only once, and then I renew the tickets and tokens until they log out again. If there's a better way to do this
