Hiya,Is there any way to modify the login screen on 6.3 so that it does not show the hostname of the machine?I've tried gconf-editor, but it doesn't seem to expose... [by jpbb]
This is certainly not game-changing or life-altering, but a question about Ubuntu has been nagging at me.
Why is it that when a user locks the screen (or the screen is locked due to inactivity), the machine doesn't simply go straight to the login screen. The little dialogue that is shown has nothing to offer that the login screen doesn't have.
I am on Fedora 16 KDE spin. Yesterday I ran the fsck command and that broke things. I can login via the tty, so I guess it has nothing to do with the shadow file. The login screen reappears after login no matter how many times I try to get past it. The permissions are the same as before. Also I have tried renaming the .kde folder. Doesn't help. This affects all the users, even root.
Sometimes my Windows 7 login screen doesn't show up when I wake up the computer after the screen has shut off. Note that I mean the screen turning off from X minutes of inactivity, not the computer entering sleep mode. When I move the mouse to turn the screen back on, it shows up right at my desktop.
To modify a user in Fedora 19 I need to provide the Administrator password. My root password doesn't work. It seems to be related to another issue. I cannot log in through the login screen. I have to do CTRL+ALT+F2 -> login -> startx. I'm in after that. However, when I lock the screen I cannot log in back. I'm getting the same authentication error as with the Administrator account.
Before Ubuntu 12.04 LTS login screen I get this message and was wondering if this could be the cause for the login screen returning after entering my password and hitting enter; "The disk drive for /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 is not ready yet or not present."
When I login to my main user account it tries to load something but then after a time just comes back to the login screen.
I changed my main user's ID from 1000 to 999 and now it no longer shows on the login screen. I expected it not to show, but I also expected the login screen (the default that ships with MATE/Mint 16) to be "smart enough" to show a box where you can manually type in a username if there are no users over 1000 to list.
I installed CentOS 6.4 within VMWare 7 by easy setup. Afterwards I had to change locale settings to German. Everythings works fine accept that the clock on the login screen is still in 12-hours-AM/PM-format. I want to change it to the 24-hour-format.
GDM Version is 2.30.4.
I tried the suggestions from the answers to a similiar question and another question.
