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
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.
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 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 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 ...
I get a black screen (with tiny bits of white on opposite corners of the screen) every time after logging into Kubuntu Lucid AMD64. The only thing I can do is move my mouse pointer over that black screen which doesn't go away. I booted into recovery mode and with command prompt typed "startx" to start graphical mode. That resulted in the same black screen. Then I decided to reboot and install Fluxbox via the command prompt under recovery mode. Now, I'm able to view graphically under Fluxbox after selecting it over the default KDE and logging in. But how do I get regular KDE/Kubuntu to work again? I don't know what happened to make it stop working!
I upgraded from 9.10 yesterday, overall, I do like this; but, it has issues:Sometimes, it boots to a login screen, no graphics. I must reboot; then,I do get the graphical login screen.My graphics is an integrated nVidia GeForce 6100. nForce 405.When I look to download more drivers, I see Hardware Drivers jockey-gtk, and nVidia Binary X.Org driver 185 are installed. I suspect the graphics drivers to be the issue.I see the option to install X.Org driver 173, and 96 for older cards. Is my card that old?My desktop: x64 with 1 gig of RAM.Lucid also boots slower than Karmic, could this be the nVidia driver as well?
I installed Ubuntu for the first time yesterday by running Wubi on Windows Vista Home Premium. For all of yesterday and up to lunchtime today Ubuntu was working fine. I followed the instructions on a forum post to remove Evolution Mail via the synaptic applications menu. I proceeded to log out of Ubuntu and reboot (I hoestly can't remember what for) Anyway, ever since I have not been able to log in to Ubuntu. I enter my username and password as normal and they are accepted, however moments the log in page displays again. This continues in an endless loop. The password is definitely correct because I get an authentication error if I enter anything else. I know I am not the only person experiencing this issue.
I want my Ubuntu 10.04 to login to an Xterm session every time, so I changed it to auto login to Xterm in the login screen settings. This worked fine until I went to do something in a gnome session again, and now even though it is still selected as logging into Xterm automatically, it logs into a Gnome session. Can anyone help me with fixing this?
So I have Ubuntu Lucid machines about 20 of them. Configured via ldap authentication. I seem to be running into a rather strange logout problem. Whenever users click logout they're logged out, however after that all i get is the background screen with the cursor. The cursor is able to move, but no login screen.If i go to a terminal window alt+f1 and do a service gdm restart, then the login screen goes back to normal.
I actually got my boss to let me put Ubuntu on a laptop for a client and it works like a champ. I have it all setup but there's one thing I'd like to do on it. I have an admin user (the one I created during the install) and a desktop user (for the person receiving the laptop). I would like to hide my admin user from the login screen, so when it boots up all the user sees is their name. If I need to help them with something/install software I can choose other and login as my admin user.
It appears this was rather easy in 9.10 and previous but I can't figure out how to do it in 10.04. To be clear, I want to edit the user list, not disable it entirely. I've tried changing the user id, I found a post that claimed IDs less than 1000 were not shown on the login screen, this proved un-true in my case.
I just did a fresh install of Lucid on my desktop. The boot background splash screen comes up very fast, but then it is about a 1 minute wait until the login prompt appears. Then once I enter my login credentials, GNOME loads up ASAP. It wasn't this slow before I reinstalled. Anyone know why this could be? Everything works.
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 installed Lucid Lynx on a medium-old system, Athlon 2200+ with an ATI video card. No problems during the install itself. The problem is that when I boot into the login screen, I get a bunch of blank boxes. If I move the mouse around, I can see various areas highlighted, but I can't actually see the menu options. I can type in my username and password to log in (not being able to see what I'm typing), but then the desktop panels are empty boxes - once again I can mouse over them to get empty drop down menus, but I can't see anything else.
I've had enough experience with Ubuntu in the past to do some troubleshooting myself. Usually I would just boot into a terminal, switch Xorg to use the vesa driver and go from there. However, a number of decisions in Lucid Lynx have made troubleshooting practically impossible.1 - No grub menu. No way for me to pick a safe boot option.2 - Install CD doesn't come with any rescue boot options.3 - Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to kill the X server and Ctrl-Alt-F1 to boot into a shell don't work.4 - the default filesystem is ext4, which means my old rescue CDs aren't likely to be of much help.Sigh. I understand that Ubuntu is trying to make things look pretty and all, but these user-friendly changes are making it near impossible to fix a problem like the one I have. I just downloaded a System Rescue Linux CD but it's kind of late to be trying it out now.
Put an remote desktop launcher on the lucid login screen.
I'm running a ubuntu lab, and adding an rdesktop launcer to the login screen would really make login much easier for the users, so they don't have to login twice. First into lucid and then into windows with rdesktop.
I'v already made the rdesktop launcher on the lucid desktop, but where (if possible) do I put it so it will also be avalible in the lucid login screen ?
