I have a boring, brown, GDM login screen. I'm assuming this is what shows when there are no GDM themes. I don't see any options in Administration -> Login Window, so what do I need to do to get the standard, Ubuntu GDM theme? What package (asides from vanilla GDM) is required for this on Karmic?
i want to apply the mac4lin GDM theme, and get rid of the splash screens and xsplash, when i follow instructions on internet they telly to log out, and hit ctrl-alt-F1, but all i get is confuzzled screen with random colors...here is link: [URL]..
I made a little change this morning on my karmic laptop, and now after it boots up and I enter my username/psswd, it remains perpetually stuck on the loading page that usually shows only for a couple of seconds. I never actually get to my desktop.
This morning, I thought I would try adding another panel to my Desktop, but I thought that if I added it with the position 'top', it would automatically pop underneath my default top panel. So I would have two panels one under the other, like you often do in firefox. I also immediately set my new panel on 'auto-hide'. Right after, the new panel showed up ABOVE my default panel (like z-axis, covering my default panel) and my screen was absolutely frozen. All my desktop icons disappeared and mouse clicks and keyboard strokes would do nothing.
I was forced to hit ctrl+alt+f3 and do a reboot. Ever since, I have been stuck in this mode. Perhaps if I could access the config file for desktop panels (if there is one), then I could try and revert my changes.
I have a real issue and need urgent help. I am stuck in a login loop and have looked in several threads in order to find a solution for my issue. I am relatively new to Ubuntu/Linux and do not really know my way around especially when it comes to command prompt. Thus I need someone with patience and who can guide me step by step in order to get to the bottom of the issue and to fix it.
The issue started all of a sudden, no particular reason. I only uninstalled evolution before and then rebooted. The shutting down process got stuck forever and I turn off the PC by holding the power button. Then I attempted to start, the PC boots to the login screen and I select my name and enter the correct password as usual. Then the screen changes for a split of a second to the back command screen and I can see the word crypto or so. Then the screen returns to the login screen and this loops.
I did an upgrade on my system yesterday. After the completion of the upgrade on restarting the system the computer enters tty1 mode straight without giving me the GUI login screen making it difficult for me to work. The question does now is what could have caused this to happen ? Have i gottten something wrong somewhere?
To switch to tty7 mode i hit the key crtl+alt+7 but it gives an error message about an unknown user even after login in with my username and password on tty1. Start the computer on recovery mode and selected the option correcting broken packages and it produced a result requiring me to download some new packages. I have a huawei e1550 modem which i use to browse in Nigeria. I want to know how i can connect to the internet on the tty1 after insertion of the modem so i can download the necessary packages it requested on issuing dpkg command
On the website that Ubuntu provides for installing additional themes, when I download a "Login Screen" from the website it just downloads as a bunch of JPGs and backups. The downloads are just folders filled with them. I've been wanting to customise the appearance of my Ubuntu, and I want to know how I can make these login screen actually appear when I turn on my computer and login to Ubuntu.
after I changed my login image on ubuntu tweak i restarted to check if it worked, it didnt, all that shows up is a purple background i also did th same with a splash screen using "Splash screen" but it also does not appear
My friend recently showed me gnome-look.org and there's a lot of really cool stuff on there. I was looking around and saw a really cool GDM login screen that I want to use [URL]... The only problem is that I don't know how to use it. I already downloaded the file for it, but I don't know what to do next.
Just did a nice new fresh install of Lucid, and I wanted to change the login screen. I've found a few tutorial on how to change the background image, but I want to change the entire thing.You used to be able to do this through the System > Administration > Login Screen dialog, but now you can't
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.
First of all not sure if this is the correct forum but anyway.Ok well i installed this theme because i liked the look of windows 7 (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.p...content=113264).So i ran the GUIUninstall.sh and it seemed to work but the login screen still has the theme i was wondering how i could change it back to the defualt one.
Step 1: Create an audio file in (.ogg) format name (system-ready.ogg). Step 2: Open nautilus with root privileges by pressing ALT+F2 and typing: gksudo nautilus Step 3: Navigate to /usr/share/sounds/ubuntu/stereo/ Step 4: In this directory rename the current (system-ready.ogg) file to (system-ready.ogg.backup) Step 5: Copy your custom (system-ready.ogg) file into this directory. Step 6: Restart your computer and enjoy.
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 am running opensuse 11.4 on my Lenovo G450. The probem is that the login theme is not changing. Its the same default one. I am sure that I am following the way it should be to assign the new theme but no result. What could it be?
I just installed Squeeze because Lenny didn't have the best Bluetooth support. (Just installed blueman and everything I have works without any configuring, by the way). In Lenny, gdmsetup would allow me to choose a theme for the login screen as well as change settings for logging in. With Squeeze, fully updated, I only get a couple simple options for changing automatic login (screen shot of gdmsetup).
There is a config file that I found: Code: /etc/gdm3/greeter.gconf-defaults It is a simple config file but I do not know the available themes and cannot preview them.
I have been searching this forum and google extensively for the last few hours, and I cant dig up anything useful. I have a very weird problem:
Install Fedora 12 from livecd on a widescreen monitor:
- Using Nvidia 96xx drivers for my Gforce2 MX
Everything runs fine at this point. Connect old 17" flatscreen and no network: Login freezes for about a minute after username selection, no password prompt, no mouse movement, no keyboard response, after timeout I return to login screen before username selection .. and can repeat this or.. At that point (or before that point) I can ctrl+alt F2 to 'terminal' screen, login works fine.
init 3, login as root startx
Works fine then, resolution is %^# tho, and cant change it at that point due to errors I get. I'm convinced the problem has nothing to do with my X configuration tbh. Booting from the LiveCD on this configuration works fine. I am tempted to think it has something to do with my GDM, but as my knowledge is limited, I cant figure it out. If I reconnect the widescreen, it all works fine ...
Is there any way to change the resolution and refresh rate of the graphical log on screen in Lenny? I have the right resolution and refresh rates set for after I log in but I don't know which file to edit to make Lenny use the right settings for the log on screen.
I need to install the following dependencies for synspam on Ubuntu 9.10 karmic server:
Code: sudo aptitude install nfqueue-bindings-perl libsys-syslog-perl libappconfig-perl libnetpacket-perl libnetaddr-ip-perl dpkg -i synspam_version_all.deb Of these, only libnetpacket-perl is not packaged for Ubuntu 9.10 karmic.
Is this functionality present in another 9.10 package with a different name? 10.04 Lucid does have the package: [URL]
I was having a discussion with someone who asked me whether a Linux OS has to be rebooted when the hosts file is modified. From personal experience, on Windows I change the file but don't reboot and I've seen others do the same thing. I assume Linux has no exception(s), but is there any reason why a reboot is not required (to at least justify my actions)?
I've recently installed Karmic on my desktop and I've been tweaking everything to my liking. I was recently attempting to clean out all the applications I don't use and I wanted to remove all the games from the list except for one game which I play oftenAfter going into System>Preferences>Main Menu and unchecking everything except the one game I want to show I noticed the games remain unmodified in the Applications>Games menu
I have Ubuntu 9.10 installed on my laptop.And I am going to install mediaplayer from its "*.deb" file, But it requires a lot of other packages and each of those packages needs others and so on.Since I do not have internet connection on my Ubuntu and my internet connection is in Win XP, so I should download these packages and then check them in my Ubuntu and see what other packages it needs and download them and so on.
It is a very time consuming task. If I could find out what are all the required packages I could download all of them at once and then I could install them by "sudo dpkg -i *".Therefore I am wondering if there is a way to know which packages are the required ones for a typical package, my work would be much more easier.
So i have a small home server i need to setup. I used to have arch linux installed, but i found it unstable and more difficult to maintain. So i heard about the stability if CentOS and decided to try it out. I got samba setup no problem, but cups i cannot get to work. The orinter driver for my epson workforce 500 requires lsb 3.2 whereas lsb installed in centos is only 3.1. What can i do to fix this? Should i just go with fedora instead?
