Ubuntu :: Getting Login Screen Directly After 9.10 Bootup

Feb 14, 2010

When I boot up 9.10, very occasionally, I get a login screen directly after the page with the Ubuntu b&w symbol and before the colour page. It doesn't happen very often but usually when I am showing someone how good and quick Ubuntu is.

General :: Wake From Screensaver Directly To The Login Screen In Ubuntu?

Mar 16, 2010

I've got Ubuntu 9.10 with a user account for my wife, and one for myself. "Wake-from-screensaver" should result in "choose user" without having to enter any password. I know how to do that in Windows, but I'm not good with Linux (yet). get past the login screen without passwords (after booting, and after choosing "switch user"), but once the screensaver kicks in and I wake it up again, the system does not present the "choose user" screen. Instead, it either turns off the screensaver and presents the desktop of the most recent user, or (if the screensaver is set to lock the screen) prompt for the user's password (which can be handily surpassed by clicking the "switch user" button and choosing the same user again). So, the login ("choose user") screen has been dealt with. How do I make the (any) screensaver return to the login screen at wake, rather than to the current user's desktop? Windows can do this, I'm sure Linux can too - but how?

OpenSUSE :: Shutdown Gnome Directly Without Getting Exited Into The Login Screen?

Dec 10, 2010

I am running Opensuse 11.3 which had the KDE desktop loaded by default. I have since installed the Gnome desktop which I access via the log in screen whenever I want to use it.

One thing that is annoying me is that whenever I load gnome I am unable to shut down the computer directly from the gnome panel.

When I click the shutdown button, I want the computer to shut down, but rather gnome exits into the login screen and it is from there that I need to click the shutdown button in order to shutdown the computer.

Is there a way to avoid this and be able to shutdown from the gnome panel?

I do not want to uninstall KDE as a solution, I would like the flexibility of having both desktops.

Ubuntu :: Login To Xfce The Screen Goes Black - Flickers A Few Times Then It Brings Back To The Login Screen

Apr 12, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Msmtp And Gmail - Can't Send Emails At Bootup But Works After Login?

May 10, 2011

I'm running 11.04 desktop 64 bit and have smartmontools and mdadm set to send automated test emails at bootup (I have a RAID5 setup).I'm using msmtp with a gmail account. When I'm logged in, I can manually send test emails with both smartmontools and mdadm; neither will send me an email at bootup even though they are set to do so. The msmtp log at bootup has a smtp.gmail.com exitcode=EX_NOHOST.why it can't find the smtp server at bootup but has no problem once I'm logged in and test it manually? Is there some dependency that isn't loading in time at bootup???

Ubuntu :: Bootup Usually To Frozen Screen

Dec 30, 2010

Have installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a couple of Dell Inspiron 2650 laptops (both 512M memory) and when they run, they're great, but they only successfully boot up maybe 10% of the attempts. Most of the time, the touchpad and keyboard are inoperative, but I recall sometimes the enter key gets me past my user Id to input password. Trying to enter recovery mode isn't any better, but once into recovery, I'll boot up in safe graphics, but it is probably only running because it succeeded in entering recovery, anyways. I have elected to to boot up in safe graphics, but they still both freeze. No error messages, just a frozen background/icons screen.

Ubuntu has searched the hardware and reports there's nothing requiring proprietary drivers installed.

After reading all the other problems posted, I figure my laptops are doing pretty darn good, but it sure would be nice not to set around starting up and shutting down, over and over.

Ubuntu :: Silence On Screen Console Messages At Bootup?

May 1, 2010

After grub loads the kernel I'll get an on screen message from the console showing: cannot reserve MMIO region And I was wondering is there a way to silence console messages so you don't see them at bootup?

Could setting dmesg work:-nlevel Set the level at which logging of messages is done to the console. For example, -n 1 prevents all messages, expect panic messages, from appearing on the console.So typing at a term 'dmesg -n 1' will work?

Ubuntu :: Laptop Hangs At Initial Bootup Screen?

May 25, 2010

I have Lucid running on a Toshiba Portg R500. Last week it started hanging for just over one minute at the initial Toshiba screen. That is, the screen with the Toshiba logo and a series of boot-from options (HDD, CD, Network, USB) along the bottom. I don't know if the machine is even interacting with the OS at this stage. Also, neither Ubuntu nor the machine recognises the CD-ROM tray any longer. As in, I can't boot from CD and I also can't mount a CD when in Ubuntu. I can, however, boot from a USB startup disk (after the one minute delay).

I'm not sure how to collect helpful data on this sort of issue, especially since I can't see any threads that point to similar problems. The only strange thing I did the day this problem started was to forget to unmount a truecrypt-encrypted USB key before shutting the laptop off.

I've reinstalled Lucid but to no avail. I assume that whatever problem I have is a BIOS problem (and so strictly not for here)? As you can imagine though I want to make sure I've accounted for all other possibilities before fooling around with the BIOS.

Ubuntu :: Blank Screen On Bootup After Distorted Logo

Jul 4, 2010

I recently got a new laptop (Aspire 5741) and have installed ubuntu 10.4 on it. I have been very happy with the computer and OS. However the only problem I have had is that I am unable to change the screen brightness. Last night I though I found a fix. I cant remember the specific thing but it was something similar to this [URL]. On reboot the ubuntu logo came up and a few seconds later it showed a distorted ubuntu logo. After this it just goes to a black screen. I have tried booting into recovery fail proof graphics mode, and the problem still arises.

Slackware :: 13.37 - Blank Screen On Bootup

Mar 11, 2011

I have a clean install of slackware 13.37, downloaded today from slackware64current. On boot, I get a black screen - not just black, but no video signal out of the video card, or at least nothing that the monitor recognizes. Fortunately, I can ssh into the box from another machine. If I do, I can startx and xfce starts up and appears as expected. lspci shows:

01:05.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Device 9714
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Device 6898

I have an onboard video chipset with a monitor connected to it, and an ATI 5970 in a pcie slot with a monitor also connected to it. xfce appears on the pcie card (the 5970) as expected, as this is (supposedly) the primary monitor, and the monitor connected to the onboard video output is blank - no signal, also as expected as I have not yet installed the ATI drivers. So the question is - how do I get the terminal output on bootup to appear on one of my monitors? I'm not sure where it is going, and this is out out of my area of expertise.

Nov 13, 2010

when trying to startup Ubuntu 10.04 the screen goes blank and says no signal. But there are three Ubuntu's to chose from. the middle one will boot-up and works all right. But for when it is starting up the screen flashes and comes back on. the top one doesn't work at all screen goes blank but the lights on tower stay on.

the bottom one starts to boot but when it gets to the screen for your id and pass. it goes all blank but for a white line on the right side of the screen. this is on an old e-machine with a dual boot windows xp home. currently with 1g of ram and a 160gb hard drive split in two. with an AMD processor and ATI graphics on board. cant remember the numbers after that come after Ubuntu on the grub it is listed three times. how do you remove the other. let me know if you need more info.

Debian :: Black Flashing Screen After Bootup?

Apr 1, 2010

I'm using debian for the first time and I recently downloaded the Debian Lenny 201 Live CD to test it on my old computer (I'm planning to use Debian 5.0.4). It has a Pentium III (550 MHz) processor, 192 MB RAM, 8 MB graphics memory, 20 GB HDD with a monitor supporting 1024x768 resolution. The problem is, after the booting is complete a blank flashing screen appears with a cross-shaped cursor in the middle. I continues and nothing happens. I tried with solutions like editing the entries with 'live xdriver=fbdev', 'live xdriver=none', and 'live vga=771'.

Slackware :: Black Screen On Bootup After A Few Lines (13.37)

May 25, 2011

i just installed slackware 13.37 which worked fine but when i boot it up it runs a number of lines and then the screen just goes black... i can login as root blindly and start x (i THINK, judging from hdd led)... but screen stays black... its a laptop and closing/opening the lid doesnt work either...

i am dualbooting with slack 13.1 which runs fine... it switches screen res at some point during boot (font is smaller) and i would say that is the point where the screen goes black in 13.37...
