Ubuntu :: GDM Theme Boot Screen Change (Options Missing)

Feb 25, 2011

Using LTS 10.04. How do I change my boot splash and login screen? (in the past I would). It was just system->admin->login screen but all the options are missing! See attached screen shots.

Tried to reinstall it.
xxx@xxxx:~$ sudo apt-get install gdm-themes
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package gdm-themes is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
E: Package gdm-themes has no installation candidate

Ubuntu changed something and I don't what it is (I cant even figure what to search for)
- The first screen is my desktop system->admin->login screen
- The 2nd is what should be there. system->admin->login screen

General :: Missing Gui Options At Boot?

Sep 24, 2010

I thought running an update from my OpenSuse 11.3 dvd would solve my problem, but It doesn't; I'm not given the option to choose a gui environment. It leaves me at a prompt here. /home//

Ubuntu :: How To Change Gnome Login Screen Theme

Sep 2, 2010

So, here's the story: I did some messing about with the ambiance-maverick-beta theme and it worked fine, but the login screen, missing the default Ambiance theme, defaulted to Clearlooks. Clearlooks. So, I tried upgrading to Maverick, thinking it would default the login screen to the new themes. No such luck.

Dec 17, 2010

i have ubuntu 10.10 installed using wubi inside win7.when i power on the pc, i get a black screen with three os options :windows 7, ubuntu, ubuntu. there are 2 ubuntu options probably due to uninstalling of wubi and reinstalling of it.

Ubuntu :: Change Order Of Boot Options?

Jul 5, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 x64 in a three-boot configuration; the first boot choice screen (the one I would like to change) gives the options of booting to Ubuntu, 3 options I don't understand, and booting to Windows 7. Unfortunately, at least for me, Ubuntu is at the top and is the default. [The third choice is Win XP x32 - but it appears on a separate screen]

My question: How can I make the boot to Windows 7 the default choice?

General :: Change Default Boot Options For Ubuntu Desktop

Mar 12, 2011

I have recently installed Unbuntu Desktop 10.10 on a partition alongside my normal Windows 7 x64 install. I expected to have only one OS boot menu which I would be able to edit via msconfig.exe in Windows. However I have two seperate sets of boot menus.The first one contains a bunch of different Ubuntu boot options and also contains an option to boot to Windows 7 (this is last in the list).

The first boot menu defaults to Ubuntu and is on a short timeout. I want to change this to default to Windows 7 and increase the timeout.Google tells me to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and although I do have a grub folder I don't seem to have a file called menu.lst: Change default operating system at boot

OpenSUSE Install :: Peculiar Boot Options Screen?

Dec 4, 2009

I use Suse Linux 11.1 on a VMware Workstation 6.5.3, and I've run into the following strange behavior: occasionally (happened two-three times in the last several days), I get instead of the usual boot options screen, which is of green color, a screen with the same content but which is predominantly blue; in fact it contains a sort of snowscape with a penguin walking across it. So far I haven't noticed anything wrong with my machine; but I'm curious if anybody else has noticed it. Could it be some malware

Fedora :: Mouse Theme / Only Some Symbols Change / Other Stay Standard Theme

Feb 21, 2011

I updated my laptop from F12 to F14 via preupgrade. After doing so, the standard mouse theme was active. So I installed the one I like again and set it as mouse theme. For some reason it is now a mixture of the one I installed and the standard theme. If I open a place in nautilus the displayed symbol is the right one while waiting, if I open something in control center I get the standard icon. Same problem with drag and drop, I always get the hand from the standard theme. I also tried the former standard theme Bluecurve and it was the same problem.Can anyone tell me what goes wrong with the theme? What has changed in F14, that the older themes won't work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install / LiveCD Freeze At "scrolling Dots" / Change Boot Options Will Allow It To Work?

May 26, 2011

I'm trying to install (L)ubuntu on an old AMD 1.66GHz based HP laptop, to dual boot with Windows XP. However I'm running into an issue that I haven't come across on any other machine before where after selecting "Install Lubuntu" from the main boot menu, it moves to the scrolling dots splash/loading screen and after ~30 sec or a minute it freezes. There is no error, it doesn't reboot or eject the disk even after several hours of sitting on that splash screen, with the dots frozen, no CD activity, and no HDD activity. I get the same result if I try to boot it as a LiveCD as well.

Can someone help diagnose whats going on? Is it possible changing some boot options will allow it to install? I'm not quite sure where to go with this one.

Ubuntu :: Options Missing From Compizconfig?

Jul 13, 2010

Title pretty much says it. As you can see from my screenshot, my effects list is far shorter than it's supposed to be, a quarter the size of what I had on my hardy desktop. The main effects that are driving me insane not having are 3D windows, e.g. windows hover above the desktop cube in order of use, and water sloshing around in the cube as I rotate it. Are these now options under an effect? I couldn't find them anywhere. Running 32 bit lucid on a laptop with a good graphics card.

Ubuntu :: Missing Gconf-editor Options?

Jan 29, 2011

I was trying to make Gnome display the date in a better format. I tried using gconf-editor as described in the thread at [URL], but I also found that apps > panel> default_setup > applets > clock had no prefs item.

Unfortunately, the solution which worked for quixote (stop running as root) didn't help me as I was running as the only account I've set up on the system, and all of the files in ~/.gconf are owned by that user.

Does anyone know what else could cause options to vanish like that? I'm running Gnome 2.32.0.

Ubuntu :: Missing Shut Down And Log Off Options From Control

Jul 2, 2011

Ok under the power control icon in the upper right hand corner of the screen I have the options to hibernate and sleep, but I do not have shut down, or log off. If I control-alt-delete I have shut down, hibernate, suspend and restart. Also I am currently using 11.04 on an HP Dv6 laptop. I previously installed Ubuntu 11.04 on here and it worked perfectly. To address yet another interesting "bump" I installed this and on my launcher I have an applet to "Install RELEASE" but, I have the latest installation of 11.04 on here.
