Installed Centos6.2 on i7 laptop. Initial login works fine. But once you logout - the login screen does not show up again.The system is running fine. The only way I have been able to re... [by joecentos6]
I can't post any error messages about this because I don't know what to test but whenever I go back and forth between tty7 (graphical environment) and any of the other consoles, or when I try to logout through the logout menu, XFCE crashes and logs me out to the lightdm screen. I can't logout, restart or shut down unless I do so manually from tty.
I am trying to make the move from a very old, custom, from-scratch linux install to a more modern and supported Ubuntu distribution. On my custom linux install and the old init daemon, I had things setup on this server so that when a keyboard and monitor were connected, any messages (both from boot and afterwards) were displayed right away on tty1.
I want to create a log of when people login or logout of computers in a computer lab. My first idea was to just create login/logout scripts that contact a server, but the problem is since these scripts would run as the current user, that they would then be able to run this script outside of these two occasions.
