In current Ubuntu 14.04 (October 2014), there is no need to hack gsettings manually. If the wallpaper file is available to others (read permissions), the greeter automagically displays everyone'ss background as you select the login name. My wallpaper lives inside the Dropbox folder which has the permissions drwx------ and thus the greeter can't access it. ...

I don't think you can get the greeter from Luna on to ubuntu 14.04 using that repository. It will point to the Trusty files, so what you'll get is the new pantheon-greeter being developed for elementary os Freya

I do not know about ligthDM (@muru confirm that lightDM behave the same), but if you use gdm as display manager the default session is simply the last one you choose (at least, it was --- I hope they didn't change this; can't test now because I removed all desktops minus the gnome-shell one). To install gdm (which, by the way, is the best thing to do if ...

Complaining on this site did'nt help at all other than being pointed for 'law breaking' and getting answers for questions that were removed by the moderator from the moderator hinmself(Now thats what we call irony.).Anyway I found a solution to my problem.As I doubted it was the problem of the unity.I could open my account using openbox.After that I only had ...

Looks like pam_kwallet.so is missing. PAM is the authentication module used by lightdm and it wants to load kwallet (I guess that's a KDE keyring) but the library is gone. If you have access (somehow), try to install the package containing the pam_kwalet.so, or try to configure PAM so that it would not look for this file. Automatically: try running ...

I tried below command: sudo ln ...

light-locker is necessary if you would like to have the original lock screen that Ubuntu 14.04LTE came with.

Instead of using Upstart, you can try to place your script snippet into /etc/X11/session.d/. Make sure that it is by the name of 99local and that it does not have a #!bin/sh header. It also should not be executable. This will ensure that your script is run after the xsession is set up and that it always runs, since the scripts in that directory are always ...

Does indicator-datetime show up in your task manager? If not, open a terminal and try typing nohup indicator-datetime & See if it shows up. If so, then you need to add it to start automatically each time you restart. You can do this by searching "Startup Applications" in dash, and adding indicator-datetime to the list. I am unsure why it would not ...

The contents of 10-xubuntu.conf are: [SeatDefaults] user-session=xubuntu In contrast, Ubuntu (that is to say, ubuntu-desktop) usually keeps configuration for LightDM in /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d, where you should find a 50-ubuntu.conf: $ cat /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-ubuntu.conf [SeatDefaults] user-session=ubuntu If this files ...

You are mixing up system and session jobs and events. lightdm emits the event just fine, but to the system instance of Upstart. Copy your ~/.config/upstart/touchpad.conf to /etc/init/ and change the start on event to login-session-start.

Upgrading to 14.04 seemed to be the solution. This machine has been used extensively and been left logged in for 6 days in a row now, and still runs as responsively and smoothly as a freshly rebooted machine / relogged user. Nothing has changed about my hardware. What I have noticed is that gnome-screensaver wasnt set as the default screen saving action for ...

“Preferred Screen Modes” might be the Problem I assume that your monitor reports the high screen resolution as being preferred. Now you would like to override this default preference. See my answer to a very similar question for details on how this can be done. I had the opposite problem: I always got a lower screen resolution (1280x1024) than the one I ...

Try running sudo service gdm stop. The reason your command may be resulting in that output is because lightdm isn't your Display Manager. In addition to gdm, also try xdm and kdm.

The option "Scale for menu and title bars" should suffice, it's kind of badly named, it scales everything and not only menu and title bars. I'm using it on a 13.3'' 3200x1800 screen and it works. The only thing you have to add to that is an option in about:config in Firefox (and Thunderbird if you use it)

I had a similar situation like you, but solved in a real simple way. For me, I successfully changed the background of lightdm to some custom wallpaper after a clean install. Then today, I changed it to another wallpaper and it failed and showed the default purple one. So, I checked the x-0-greeter.log and found out that it tried to load my wallpaper but ...

Instead of installing the beta, I followed the instructions here for installing via command line. I also followed the instructions here for some troubleshooting to remove all errors https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BinaryDriverHowto/AMD Then I looked through some x.org logs to find any errors. Following these two posts helped clear those errors up ...

This is one of those catch 22 situations where you need to fix a problem but you can't get the screens that would fix the problem to display. On my machine everything worked in the guest account, but there was nothing I could do there that would allow changes to be permanent. I could not get to much of anything on the user screen (after all, that was the ...

I've been using Ubuntu since 2006. From 2005 to 2006 I exclusively used Kubuntu. Before that tried various other types of linux. I like the look and feel of Kubuntu, but I didn't like how often it would crash in the most unpredictable ways. Since then I've tried several KDE programs under Ubuntu, and time and again these KDE applications are visually ...
