How do I remove that annoying drum sound from the login screen.I went to PREFERENCES -> LOGIN SCREEN, but there are no tabs or boxes for sound. Only options to determine who I want to log in.I tried GCONF-EDITOR, and drilled down to /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/settings-manager-plugins/sound/active and unchecked the active box, rebooted, but it still plays that stupid sound. And the box is unchecked if I check it! I've tried the solutions in the forum and nothing seems to kill that annoying sound.I'm still on 9.10 right now, since 10.04 has a nasty screen flicker problem.
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.
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 ...
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'd like to disable the log-in screen sound. Not after you log on. Since it's my laptop I can't just switch a knob or press the off button. The function keys don't work before log-in.. Well not for sound at least.. I guess you could say it's a bug.. unless it was intended. Anyway, without filling a bug report how can I disable sound @ the login screen?
I find system sounds distracting, so having recently installed F11 I've turned the sound theme to 'no sounds', which is fine. However, when I boot my system and get the GDM login screen, every time the password text input box gets focus, it emits a *really* loud low beep. I have no idea where to begin looking to customise the settings for GDM to disable all sounds.
I just installed the opensuse 11.2 64 bit version on my gateway md2614u.I am having sound problems. There is no sound for the internet (..... was the test) and the amarok audio will not play any mp3 files. The only sound that I can hear is the initial start up noise. Other than that there is no sound.
I'm not referring to "Gnome Login Sound" I'm referring to the login screen sound. Those 2 drum pats you hear when you start up Ubuntu, before logging in. I was using Macbuntu, and have switched back, however it never changed my login sound back to what it was suppose to be. I knew how to change everything else back, so i didn't just run a script with out knowing how to clean up after it, however this is the only thing I don't know how to do. It keeps looking into the macbuntu folder to get the sounds before i log in. Probably being able to simply set the sound theme in the login screen would fix this issue. I've tried using Ubuntu Tweak, but no such luck. If no one can't find a solution I'll just have to use the other folder from now on >.< However I'm quite certain there's a script somewhere, that I can edit. I just need to know where it's at.
My last setup (years ago) ran fluxbox so because it was familiar I installed it as a secondary to xfce right off the bat. I download a lot of different stuff because I like to try out all the apps I can find but somewhere I broke something. I can still run fluxbox fine, but nither the Xubuntu nor Xfce sessions will run now. Last thing I remember changing was pulse audio(removed it for an experiment I was trying with jack audio), not sure if it is connected but when I try to login to xfce the screen goes black, flickers a few times then it brings me back to the login screen.
I tried failsafe but everytime I do my monitor gives me a "frequency out of range" error. I tried purging and reinstalling xubuntu desktop and xfce settings but I am thinking its my xorg config. My laptop is a Toshiba satellite M305D-s4830 with ATI Radeon 3100 mobile graphics card and I am running Xubuntu 10.10. Unfortunately I also broke the screen, so right now I am stuck with an external monitor till I get a new one.
Title is simple, how do i mute sounds at login screen? Somewhere on net i found it's in Login Screen preferences. Unfortunately these prefereces are greyed out - i tried start them as root with sudo too. What now?
