Ubuntu Installation :: How To Restore GNOME Login

Apr 5, 2010

I am trying Xfce in my Ubuntu Karmic installation. I just logged out and I get the Xubuntu login screen. I prefer the GNOME one, and xubuntu-desktop sets Xfce as default. I tried editing /etc/x11/default-display-manager and it already says /usr/sbin/gdm.

CentOS 5 :: Gnome-login Configuration - Restore User Profile?

Nov 20, 2009

Last night I started my computer and loaded my CentOS 5.2 partition (Windows 7 on the other partition). I was able to login to my account, but was given a gnome error that the panel buttons (i.e. weather, cpu monitor etc) could not be loaded. I then went to restart the computer (probably not the smartest thing to do) and was given some file errors upon shutdown that were related to /dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00. After restart I was taken to a shell and ran fsck manually. It seemed to find a lot of bad blocks, so I repaired the /dev/VolGroup00 system and restarted. At this point CentOS seemed to boot normally, but upon loading of the login screen I get the error: Configuration not correct The configuration file contains an invalid command line for the login dialog, so running the default command. Please fix your configuration.

I cannot even log in as root. I get the error /usr/bin/gnome-session: error while loading shared libraries: libgnome-desktop-2.so.2: cannot open shared objects file: no such file or directory. I then went to a shell and ran: sudo yum install libgnome-desktop-2.so.2, but the package was already installed and up to date, so there was nothing to do. I am therefore stuck at this login screen with pull-down menus and tabs where I can change the configuration, add/remove users etc. So, my question is this: How do I restore my user profile so I can login....and if anyone has some insight, what caused this to happen in the first place? I should also mention, this all happened after plugging the computer into a new internet connection. No clue if that's even relevant.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Login To GNOME After Upgrading

May 4, 2010

Yesterday I did a successful upgrade to 10.04. Today, after a few hours of using and a few reboots, when I provide my password in GDM, the screen turns black and gets me back to the GDM. The same with recovery mode.When I turn onto the terminal I can't see any letters but a bunch of blurred lines on the top of the screen. In recovery mode the terminal works properly.GDM also works properly. Neither graphics, nor the resolution has changed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Flashing Gnome Desktop And Login Screen ?

Jan 7, 2010

I'm having this problem with Ubuntu 9.10, it has happened the three times I have tried to install it.

I have made a video showing the problem: [url]

After upgrading and rebooting, the flashing login screen appears and it is not possible to use the GDM.

I have tried to install KDM and it works, but when trying to load gnome I get the blinking bars again.

I have also tried this (and got the same problem); installing the Nvidia driver (manufacturer), installing the Nvidia driver (repositories) and installing no screen driver.

I think the problem is with GNOME, and not with the graphics card.

Now I have installed windows xp :-/, for the first time in a whole year, cause it is not possible for me to use Ubuntu 9.10 at all.

Fedora Installation :: KDE & Gnome Login After Upgrade To F15?

Jun 24, 2011

About a week ago I used preupgrade to make the transition F14 -> F15 on a x86_64 workstation.

The system has been fully updated ever since, but I'm still not able to login either with KDE or Gnome. With KDE, the login process freezes before completion, whereas with Gnome I get the "wallpaper" behaviour reported here: [URL]

Funny though, I can login in the KDE failsafe session.

I could find no other thread reporting this problem and am at a loss on how to start diagnosing the problem. If anyone out there has any suggestion, I'd welcome it...

what's the difference between a "regular" KDE session and the failsafe one? They both look & feel the same to me...

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Broke GUI Login - Gnome Power Management

Sep 1, 2011

Here's the error I get:
"The configuration has not installed correctly for Gnome power management".
Updated my 11.04 install via the update manager last night. When I turned my computer on today it wouldn't boot into the normal gui desktop. Where my normal login screen usually appears a different login screen appears with my username. I login. Screen flickers black for a few seconds and a page with a ton of text shows up for a fraction of a second ( too short of a time to read a single word). more flickering. Then I am returned to the slightly different login screen once again with the error. I tried booting into failsafeX gui mode. Same issue.

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Login As Root Under Gnome?

Feb 3, 2010

I've installed F12 twice now. After completing the installation and getting all the updates via YumEx, my network trouble begin after a reboot. I am not able to login as root under gnome so I can't see the services panel.

Tried to reinstall 'NetworkManager' after the fact but of course I have no network connections so I may have made the problem worse. I hate to reinstall and repeat the same troubles over again as it consumes a lot of time. I don't know where to begin.

May 28, 2011

I have recently upgraded my System from F13 to F15.

Ubuntu :: How To Restore Gnome In 10.04

Apr 16, 2011

I pulled a bone headed maneuver when I thought I would try KDE. I used Synaptic and thought that I had done all correctly but on reboot all I got was a BG screen and a terminal wanting me to log in. I did but remained in the terminal... lost! I had passed on my 32 bit copy of Lucid so I installed the 64 bit copy on a new partition, so as to recover all my data. The problem is that the Flash Player does not work and I'm not inclined to fight it into living. I am downloading the 32 bit copy, right now but I need to know if it is possible to repair my old 32 bit install and save many hours of agony?

Ubuntu :: Restore Login Screen UI

Apr 14, 2010

i just installed Ubuntu 9.10 today and got the regular login screen like this:


But I was tinkering around while I was there and hit the accessibility button, chose one of the options that had something to do with contrast then the UI changed colors and became Blue and white-ish. I unchecked the contrast option again but the UI didn't change back to its original colors like the image above. Rebooting didn't work either.

Ubuntu :: Restore Gnome Panel

Oct 15, 2010

The other day I kind of messed up my panel and accidentally removed the exit icon from the upper right corner (in the panel). So I tried to restore the panel using this command:


It did the trick and restored the panels, however instead of saying my user name, it said root (again the upper right corner, in the panel). I realized this might be because I ran the command with sudo but if I didn't it would not succeed. AND when I reboot, it returns to its' messed up state.

I am running Ubuntu 10.10

Slackware :: How Can I Restore It To Gnome And Add It To KDE

Mar 8, 2010

When I used KDE 4.3.1 with Slack kernel, there were no option to shutdown the computer from KDE. I always had to log off, then issue a "sudo /sbin/halt". The same goes for the reboot option.When I tried XFCE and Gnome Slackbuild on the same kernel, I noticed that there was options to reboot and shutdown. But when I compiled a new 2.6.33 kernel, it seems such options disappeared from Gnome. I didn't check XFCE.

How can I restore it to Gnome, and add it to KDE? I tried looking in the kernel config, but couldn't figure out which option is related to that.

Ubuntu :: Restore Login Page Icon In Lucid?

May 4, 2010

I have just upgraded from Karmic to Lucid and have an issue with the login screen. It defaulted to show the edubuntu logo. this is probably because I tested the edubuntu packages on my system and it thought it was a edubuntu system.

I went into /usr/share/pixmaps/splash and replaced the edubuntu-splash.png file with the Ubuntu logo png (i renamed the file).

Unfortunately this did not work and now I have a login screen with a "no image" icon.

Ubuntu Security :: Bad Login Protocols - Graphical Login For Gnome Sizes Itself To Accommodate A User's Exact Password Length

Dec 14, 2010

I'm seeing really bad user login format under a standard installation and am wondering why ubuntu does this as default. I have noticed that the graphical login for gnome sizes itself to accommodate a user's exact password length. This indicates to me that somewhere on the unencrypted part of a standard installation with user encryption contains at least some indication of the content of the password length which seems a security flaw even if not a complete hole, it majorly reduces the number of attempts a cracker would have to cycle through.

And that's assuming that *only* the length is contained. Furthermore it seems that it would be MUCH better to simply display the number of characters entered into the pw field and allowing the gui to expand itself from an fixed size as the field is filled out so the the user still receives visual feedback for entering characters. Either a simple character count display should be entered into the field or a 10 dot to new line so that one can visually quickly count the number enter by multiplying from a 10base graphical observation.

Software :: Use 'screen' To Restore A Gnome-session?

Oct 24, 2010

This is regarding the 'screen' utility. I use an utility called 'HummingBird Exceed' to get the XSession of a linux client on my windows desktop (basically it uses XDMCP). But the pain is that at the end of the day, when I close Exceed, the session gets destroyed. I did lot of searching on the web to know how the save and restore session in Exceed, but failed. However, I found that 'screen' is the utility which keeps the session intact even when you logout. So, I did the following:

a. Logged into the machine using Putty (terminal emulator).

b. Started 'screen'.

c. Issued the command: /usr/bin/gnome-session

I got the XSession on the Exceed and started working. I opened three or four gnome-terminals. But when I logout of exceed(and detach from the screen), the screen displayed a message saying that 'Connection to XServer was lost". Hence I could not restore to this session when I reattached to the screen. how do I use 'screen' so that when I attach to the screen on which I had started gnome-session, it attempts to connect to the Xserver and open the session as it was before detaching?

General :: Restore The Gnome Panel Volume Control In 10.04?

May 25, 2010

I use alsa, and I don't have a volume control applet on my Gnome Panel.When I right click and select "add to panel", there is nothing that has to do with "sound", "audio" or "volume" in the list, and the "Indicator Applet" or "Indicator Applet Session" things have no volume controls, or properties that would let you enable any sort of volume control.

How can I get a volume control in Ubuntu, so I don't have to run aumix in a terminal or something? I've got the thing working now. But does anyone know why the new, fancy "Indicator Applet" volume control doesn't appear? The Gnome Volume Control Applet isn't as nicely featured, although it actually works.

I've been using Linux since Redhat 5, it's beyond me why these sorts of problems are still around. Someone should just put a damn "Volume Control" element in the list of things to add to the panel, even if it doesn't work, perhaps showing an error message.
