Question Login Manager - GNOME


Hello Linux Friends,


So far the support here has been grand, now onto problem 3 day 4 linux user. I began to apply some themes to spruce up the ol display right, yea.

I have applied a rather nice looking theme from art.gnome.org, for the Login Manager of gnome. And well it's corrupt I get an error message and can never get to the login.

<< <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

THERE WAS AN ERROR LOADING THE THEME GDM-Debian

Failed to load image 'usr/share/gdm/themes/GDM-Debian/walldeb.png'
Fatal error in PNG image file: incorrect data check

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I have searched and found cntrl-alt-f1 gets Me to the command line, but then what!?

So again I humbly seek the guidance of those who have come before Me. Just in case you need to know I am running fedora core 1. Now I am not far into the scheme of things so I could just start over, but what good does it do to learn linux if I cannot learn to fix My mistakes.


Thanks in Advance,

Nyxx

You got the command line and the you have two main ways to fix gdm.
First one, you can get another background and replace the one that's corrupt. You'd need a picure and commands that will allow you to copy files and so on. I recommend you to chekc if you have Midninght Commander ('mc' command). It should make it much easier. If Mmc is not installed it's on one of your installation cds.

Second: Start X manually and change what you need. The command to start GUI without login manager is 'startx' when you're logged in on console.
