Why GUADEC?

Updated 05-24-2010 at 07:22 AM by williamfromtexas

I've become involved in preparations for GUADEC 2010, the GNOME Users And Developers European Conference 2010. I can go into detail about the size and scope of the thing, but you can find out more on the website. I'd rather talk about why I became involved.

I am a GNOME user. I know: I fall into a pretty 'vanilla' category for being a fan of the world's most popular linux flavour. But I like it and and it works. And one of the things that impressed me so much about it was GNOME. Years...

I'm sorry if speaking up for someone and against an asshat isn't acceptable to you. I'll gladly take being banned to keeping my mouth shut.

Nothing to do but blog.

Posted 05-22-2010 at 09:43 PM by damgar

With the recent decline in useless threads in General and no pressing linux issues to test my patience or tickle my immediate interests I thought I'd try blogging. I've always found the idea of a blog to be a very self interested endeavor, but I guess if I'm going to say nothing, I should say it in the appropriate place!

Display Manager

Posted 05-22-2010 at 09:11 AM by Bratmon

For some bizarre reason, today I wanted to switch from kdm to gdm without leaving the gui. I opened up gnome-terminal and entered
Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure gdm
and selected gdm.

Then the part I was proud of: I opened screen and typed
Code:
sudo service kdm stop; sudo service gdm start
It worked perfectly, and I was presented with the gdm login screen.
