I've found a small fix that seems to work on login, but not on the lock screen. This solution also makes the top bar a little botched as the text is to big for the confinds - perhaps a costum theme would be the best solution? Also it's probably reliant upon the desktop already having set the Xft.dpi value highger. Open a terminal and run xrdb -query | grep ...

I had to delete ~/.config/dconf/user while logged out (in other words, from a virtual terminal) to get my settings back to working order. It's not a perfect fix, and it meant that some other things got reset of course, but it was the only way to get dconf to reset without restoring on log out. See here.

If your system has moved to systemd, specifically the logind service, settings for the logind service will control the system's behavior when the lid closes. Specifically, look for the logind.conf file (probably at /etc/systemd/logind.conf), and edit it to set the HandleLidSwitch setting (to ignore). #HandleLidSwitch=suspend HandleLidSwitch=ignore After ...

There is a sample of LightDM setup for multiseat using Xephyr. It looks like Andrzej Pietrasiewicz (the author of the blog copied/referenced below) created a PPA with all the code displayed below. By installing that PPA, you should be able to get a lightdm installation to work "magically". Note: As I have been trying to get that to work, I have not ...

If the other questions do not lead to a solution, my suggestion is to try to follow these steps: Login in character mode with a VC (Virtual Console). That is, Ctrl Alt F1 and your username/password login. Let's call this user original. Create a new user. You can use for example: adduser newuser --group sudo to add a new administrative user (that is, ...

Thank you, you got me almost all the way there with your line: video=eDP-1:1920x1080 However it took me a while to figure that eDP-1 was your monitor. You can see all the potential monitors in /sys/class/drm/ This one-liner, will show you what's connected: for p in /sys/class/drm/*/status; do con=${p%/status}; echo -n "${con#*/card?-}: "; cat $p; done ...
