Ubuntu :: Login Screen Appears On Wrong Monitor?

Jan 16, 2010

I've been working my butt off all day now trying to get the nvidia drivers installed and then (the hard part) get dual screen to work properly with them installed. Finally I've gotten to the point where both of my screens are working perfect but now the login screen is on the second monitor instead of the first monitor for some reason I do not know.

Here's my xorg.conf:

Code:
# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildd@crested) Sun Feb 1 20:25:37 UTC 2009
Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "Default Layout"

[Code]....

Ubuntu :: Login Screen Showing Up On Wrong Monitor?

Mar 28, 2011

one of them is a TV with an HDMI input. The login screen shows up on the tv, so if someone is watching a movie, I have to pause it to switch inputs and login. Other than that, everything is fine. How do I get the login screen to show up on the main monitor?

Fedora :: GDM Login On Wrong Monitor?

Jan 29, 2010

I have 2 monitor on and Nvidia FX5200 set up as twinview

Monitor 1 is an old Sony CRT @ 1280x1024
Monitor 2 is a Visio HDTV @1920x1080

I have setup Monitor 1 to be the primary using nvidia-settings but the GDM login keeps sowing up in the second monitor ; before the HDTV I had a CRT TV @ 1024x768 and all was good. My theory is that GDM determines the center of the Screen (both monitors together) and then centers on that monitor. If this is true then how may I override this behavior and force the GDM login to show on my primary monitor?

Debian Multimedia :: Login Greeter On Wrong Monitor

Apr 7, 2016

I have a laptop connected via HDMI port to different external displays throughout the day. I have configured the displays (Settings > Displays) to turn off the laptop display and set the external display as primary. However, this setting only takes effect after login. Thus, I am unable to see the login screen greeter on my external display because I close the laptop lid, so I am logging in blindly to a gray login screen background.

he issue I am facing is that when I start the laptop with an external display connected, the greeter only appears on the laptop display. The gray login screen background image spans both laptop and external displays and my mouse pointer appears on both displays, so I know both displays are detected and configured as dual displays. But, I am guessing, the laptop display is set as primary while the external as secondary.

I would like to know if there is a way to dynamically switch the greeter between the two displays, regardless of which one is set as primary and secondary. Or, is there a way to configure the system such that if there is an external display connected via HDMI, then it is set as primary, and if no external display is connected, then the laptop display is set as primary?

I have searched all over the net and this forum to no avail. I read a post which required copying the user's ~/.config/monitors.xml file over to /var/lib/gdm/.config/ but this caused my laptop monitor to be turned off at login even when there was no external display connected.

Hardware: Acer Aspire 8730G, Core 2 Duo T9900, 8GB RAM, Nvidia Geforce 9600M GT.
Software: Debian 8.4 Jessie, Gnome 3.14.1, Gallium 0.4 on NV96 (I am assuming this is the Nouveau driver)

Contents of the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file which I generated with the command "Xorg -configure" as root in console mode:

Code: Select allSection "ServerLayout"
   Identifier     "X.org Configured"
   Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
   InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
   InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

[Code] ...

I suppose I will continue to login without seeing the greeter on my external display.

Ubuntu :: Blinking Cursor For 12 Secs Before Login Screen Appears

Oct 20, 2010

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 alongside my Windows 7 os in a dual boot config. I used an installation disk and allowed the ubuntu installer to do all the resizing of partitions, installing of grub, etc. The install is working great and I haven't needed to boot my windows os since which is great. The only complaint I have is that it takes it takes a bit longer to boot than windows did for some reason. The culprit is a blinking cursor that comes up and remains for about 12-15 seconds before the grub menu appears. I already altered the boot option for the grub menu so that ubuntu is default and the option to select another os only appears for 3 seconds but I don't think this is related since the delay occurs before those options appear. I'm not really sure what is causing the delay. Is it looking for the loader? If so, is there a way to edit the configuration so doesn't have to search? As I mentioned, the install is running great otherwise.

I've restarted a server a couple times, and during the boot process pings respond when it brings up eth0, but then when i get to the command line login screen, the pings die. once i log in and do a ./network start the pings respond again, so i'm guessing its dying or not set to start automatically maybe? What should I check?

General :: Wrong Monitor Resolution Set And Now Screen With Many Colors

Jul 25, 2010

I am new to Linux (Ubuntu 10.4 LTS on a Thinkpad T40), now just two days, and had everything working nicely. But since I wanted a better higher resolution I tried to set the monitor resolution to a higher value. After selecting a higher resolution first the screen went black and now it has a white background and is steady but has flickering areas. The system is still working. How can I go back to the resolution that was working?

Fedora :: After New Kernel - When Start Up And The Login Screen Appears It No Longer Says My Username

May 22, 2010

Well, to start off my graphics card didn't work but I got that fixed.

When I start up and the login screen appears it no longer says my username and Other.. under it. It only displays Other.. I have to click that type in my username and then my password. When I log on the Auto Bug Reporting tool pops up and says 3 things crashed

I can't change my system time, shutdown or reboot under system or my username in the top right hand corner. I have to su and manually type reboot or shutdown to shutdown. It is like the computer is completely restricting me from using it.

When I try to get into my firewall an error comes up

I cannot mount anything:

OpenSUSE Install :: Normal User Cannot Login - Screen Blinks - A Black Page Appears

Jun 27, 2010

I can't log into my normal user account anymore, though I can log in with root without any problem. When I enter my normal user name and password, the screen blinks, a black page appears and after a couple of seconds I get the login screen again. I deleted /tmp files but no changes. I tried to login using command mode. So I hit Ctrl-Alt-F1 and log into root in command mode, then ran init3, then switched user to my normal user and ran startx. It worked and I logged into my normal account, but I can not do this process every time. So, what is the problem? How can I solve this problem? I used to work with my normal user flawlessly. I installed a bunch of software and also copied some folders to my home directory, but I don't know whether these activities caused the problem or not. I'm using KDE4 under openSUSE 11.2.

Ubuntu Installation :: After Logging In The Screen Remains In The Login Splash And A Small Terminal Appears In The Upper Left Corner

Jan 23, 2010

recently had to reinstall ubuntu 9.10....after all the updates & changes i made in synaptic and some restarts, i wanted to proceed in installing my nvidia drivers, so i stopped gdm and attempted to login as root, but it would not let me. it's strange because i created the root account password prior to this.

so, issuing the command to restart gdm brought me to the login window. after logging in, the screen remains in the login splash and a small terminal appears in the upper left corner. can't seem to get gnome started up.

Ubuntu :: When Turn On The Computer, The GRUB Menu Appears, Press Enter, Then A Little Flashing Underscore Appears On The Screen?

Dec 21, 2010

I recently removed Winblows Vista from my laptop and replaced it with Kubuntu 10.10 (I left the recovery partition on there, just in case). When I turn on the computer, the GRUB menu appears, I press enter, then a little flashing underscore appears on the screen in the top left hand corner. After a few seconds, the Kubuntu logo appears and I can log in.But yesterday I replace Kubuntu with Ubuntu 10.10. The Boot process is the same, but the little flashing underscore in the top left hand corner flashes for about 10 seconds longer then Kubuntu 10.10 did, and then a few paragraphs of text appears for a few seconds, then I am logged in automatically.Is this "unusual" boot process anything to worry about, or am I just being a noob.

Ubuntu :: Rotated Monitor, But Not The Login Screen?

Oct 21, 2010

I used the Monitor setup to indicate that my widescreen monitor is rotated 90 degrees to the left, to make it long for editing code, but the login page still does not rotate. I am assuming this is something simple, and probably a user defined option since my user is likely the only one with the monitor rotated, as there is just my user defined, but there are the other system ones, including MySQL. I am running Ubuntu 10.10 upgrade from 10.04.

Fedora :: F14 Dual Monitor - Firefox Starts On Wrong Monitor

Jan 27, 2011

I just upgrade to F14 from F10 on a dual montor setup. Firefox behaives differently on F14 than on F10.
On F10 it followed the mouse pointer's location and show up on the correct monitor

When maximized at close, it is always displayed on the left monitor. When not maximized at close it will open on the monitor where the mouse pointer is located.

About minimize/maximize Firefoxe before closing and it seems to work in some case, but not for me.

Fedora :: Login Screen Hangs After Changing Monitor?

May 4, 2010

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 ...

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 :: Wrong Monitor Resolution At Bootstrap

Sep 3, 2010

Sometimes, randomly, when turning on my Ubuntu laptop (HP 6730b, Ubuntu 10.04) I get a wrong monitor setting (much lower resolution than normal) and it is not possible to set it correctly because the menu buttons are wrongly placed and some are not present (probably there is not enough room for them) I have no other way than to restart the system to get the right resolution. Can someone tell me this inexplicable (to me) behaviour? Of course I didn't change anything in monitor settings...

Ubuntu :: Dual Monitors: Fullscreen Goes On The Wrong Monitor?

Apr 11, 2010

I've got a dual monitor setup. The primary one is 1360*768 and the other is 1024*768. When I fullscreen a video on the web [URL] it fullscreens to the smaller (non-primary) monitor, but cuts some off the right hand side, as if it is fullscreening the right size to display on the bigger monitor, but instead does it on the smaller one. It happens with any web video, if I click the fullscreen button on the player, it moves it fullscreen to the other monitor.

Ubuntu :: Monitor After Upgrade To Natty - Wrong Setting?

May 9, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04, I've been experiencing this weird issue with my monitor. Every time I reboot or turn the monitor on, the colors in Ubuntu are all wrong -- really green. If I go into my monitor's control panel and go to the "Input Color Format" setting and switch it from YPbPr to RGB things go back to normal.The problem is that I can't seem to save this setting. Every time the monitor is turned off it goes back to the wrong setting. I never had this issue before so it makes me think it may have something to do with the upgrade to Natty. The monitor is a Dell SP2208WFP and it's connected to my computer through an HDMI port. I use the Intel video driver.
