Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Log On To Default User On Persistent 10.10 After Setting Password?

Dec 29, 2010

After setting up a persistent Lubuntu (10.10) on a 4GB SD with Universal-USB-Installer- , I started changing the passwd of the original user ubuntu , but after rebooting, I can't log in. So I resorted to hitting Ctrl+the function key that gives you a CLI, and changed the password for "ubuntu" user then tried to log on again. No success.Then I created a new user with a password, and managed to log in with this user, but it is not the same experience, the menus are lacking, and it is not possible to log on to wifi, similar problem to this user

Software :: Setting The Default Desktop For User?

Aug 20, 2009

I am creating a music server. I have the video of the box connected to my TV. This is an OLD computer, so I'm trying to lean up the normal software running as much as possible. I have the computer logging in as guest if no one logs in within 30 secs. Right now, it logs into gnome for everyone. Btw, I'm running FC8 on this computer. It is running gdm. I would like it to have it use something lighter like twm when logged in as guest. But I still want a full gnome session when anyone else logs in.

Ubuntu Networking :: FTP Server - Setting Default Directory Per User

Jun 21, 2010

I am using VSFTPD as my FTP daemon. I want it to be set up so that my user (cj) will have a default directory of / when I log on to the FTP server and I want the secondary account (guest) to have it's home directory as the default location without any access to the root of the drive.

I need my account to have the default as / because the FTP client that I use in Windows won't go up to the parent directory of the default. Therefore, I cannot access the rest of my drive.

When I set "local_root" to "/" , it brings both users to the / directory when they sign in, even though the guest account is set to open the home directory with the "chroot_list_enable". It seems like the local_root option overrides the chroot_list_enable option.

Is there any way to set the default directory for each local user separately?

Also, Let me know if this is impossible with this FTP daemon

Ubuntu Installation :: Adjust The Default Setting Via /etc/default/grub?

May 29, 2010

I have already had Vista installed on another drive and from what i've read on the webs you get to dualboot if you install ubuntu after vista. when i did install it (i installed on a blank hdd with no partitions, choosing the "erase entire disk" option since for some reason default option was attempting to eat a part of my windows 1 gb drive instead of using disk i specially made for it) and the grub 2 loaded for the first time, there was NO option to run vista. only 2 linux (normal and recovery) and 2 memtests. I've ran linux and went to google this. I found that i should add something to some config files in /etc/grub.d/From reading the readme file i understood i could add my own files that are named like NUMBER_SOMENAME and insert code into them. Because it said:Quote: For example, you can add an entry to boot another OS as01_otheros, 11_otheros, etc, depending on the position you want it to occupy inthe menu; and then adjust the default setting via /etc/default/grub. But then i found a file 40_custom that said:

exec tail -n +3 $0

CentOS 5 Server :: Default Quota Setting When Create User?

Nov 1, 2010

Running a server using CentOS 5.5 (yum updated, x86_64), found that when using /usr/sbin/useradd to create system user, the quota for the user will default set to 5M soft and 10M hard (on /var/spool/mail partition). As remember the default setting for user quota should be both zero when create a new user.

man useradd and quota related command and no help, had any idea how to change/set the default quota when create user.

Ubuntu :: Show Password Entry Field For Default User In FIRST Login Screen?

Jun 11, 2010

When I boot Ubuntu 10.04 then at first the login screen appears with the main user


In 99% of the cases I use "Peter" and have explicitely to click on Peter. Only then the password entry field appears and I can enter it.

This is somehow user unfriendly. Can I define somehow a default user (here: Peter) and show immediately the password entry field (and place the cursor inside)?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Unable To Make Monitor Setting Persistent?

Mar 8, 2011

My system boots in 1024x768 screen resolution. I'd like to change it to 1280x1024 for all users. I can change the setting to 1280x1024 and it's persistent between sessions, but is reset back to 1024x768 on reboot. In the old days, I used to edit xorg.conf to set the the mode I want, but now there's no xorg.conf. I created one using

xorg -configure

but this created an xorg.conf which has no modeline settings at all. The file just looks like a template. Here's what I got:


Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "X.org Configured"
Screen 0 "Screen0" 0 0
InputDevice "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
InputDevice "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"

Debian Hardware :: Persistent Hdparm Setting After Wake From Sleep

Jan 26, 2016

I have set up a hdparm configuration file ( /etc/udev/rules.d/50-hdparm.rules ) with :

Code: Select allACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="block", KERNEL=="sda", RUN+="/usr/bin/hdparm -B 255 -S 0 /dev/sda" .

This works correct when I power on my system, however after waking my computer from sleep mode , /dev/sda appears to operate with APM .

Is there a way I can make this setting to be persistent ,i.e. APM disabled when waking up from sleep mode?

I am running Debian Jessie x64.

Ubuntu Installation :: Default Home Folder For First User?

Jun 12, 2011

when installing ubuntu, the installer asks for username/login/password of the first user which will be allowed to sudo and administer the system... let's call that user "ubuntu"

what if I want to:

1) Automate those answers (which preseed variables should I set if any?)

2) Change the default home directory only for that user... let say I want it to be /ubuntu instead of /home/ubuntu (because I want /home/ to be empty after setup).

I know I could tweak /etc/passwd after setup (before first reboot) but I would like to know if there is a "clean way" to do that.
