so I tried to use what has worked for me for years as below. But trying this on both of these flavors of ubuntu gives an error on giving the gdm user x server access.
Sequence: Use root:
Enable gdm to access x11:
xhost +SI:localuser:gdm su gdm: su gdm -l -s /bin/bash hide users: gsettings set org.gnome.login-screen disable-user-list true
localuser:gdm being added to access control list X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation) Major opcode of failed request: 109 (X_ChangeHosts) Value in failed request: 0xd Serial number of failed request: 7 Current serial number in output stream: 9 root@kubuntudt:~# su gdm -l -s /bin/bash su: user gdm does not exist
Why? How to fix?
Thank you in advance! Bill
