login/out screen issues after video setting change in suse 9.3 pro


Hello?

In SuSE 9.3 Professional, the login screen changes
from colorful one to plain dull big gray login screen
with xconsole window always running even after
logging into KDE. This happened after changing
some color and resolution change in the Yast.

Even when I reset to the old video setting, the gray
login screen along with xconsole is always present,
not the colorful one.

Also, the logout screen now only has "end session"
option available. Previously, the usual "restart" and
"turn off" options were available, but they're gone.

What have I done? How can I get back the normal
colorful login screen as well as the "restart" and "turn off"
options on the logout screen?

Thanks.

Hi all,

I realized that the displaymanager was set to xdm.

After changing the value to kdm, I have the usual
normal login/out screen back.

In SuSE 9.3 Pro, the displaymanager setting can be
modified via GUI setting at:

yast-system-/etc/sysconfig editor-desktop-displaymanager-
displaymanager

Regards,

Hi there mate, I am using openSuse 10.3, I've recently done some updates and keep getting an xconsole window at startup.

Its is pretty annoying as it messes up the window sizes and positions and i have to resize all windows for all applications after i login. Also me login screen 1/3rd is all gray and I just want things to be back to the way they were before.

Below is me displaymanager file. I suppose the display manager is what it should be...am not really sure but if there is something i need to change to have this problem sorted, it'd be great. cheers bud.




linux-neomorph:/etc/sysconfig # cat displaymanager

## Type: string(Xorg,Xgl)
## Path: Desktop/Display manager
## Default: "Xorg"
#
# Xgl is an experimental Xserver using OpenGL for rendering.
# Right now only the glx backend is supported, which runs on top of a
# standard Xorg server providing OpenGL.
# Set this to 'Xgl' and run SuSEconfig only if you want to run your
# displaymanager (kdm/gdm/xdm) on Xgl on top of Xorg.
# This setting is case sensitive.
# Warning! This is highly experimental.
#
DISPLAYMANAGER_XSERVER="Xorg"

## Type: string
## Path: Desktop/Display manager
## Default: "-accel glxbuffer -accel xvbuffer"
#
# Xglx is an experimental Xserver using OpenGL for rendering.
# Additional options for startup when using a display manager.
# You can try
# "-accel glx"
# or
# "-accel glxbuffer"
# in order to get accelerated indirect OpenGL rendering for 3D applications.
# You can also try
# "-accel xv"
# to accelerate XVideo color space conversion and/or scaling.
#
# See also /usr/share/doc/packages/xgl/README.SUSE
#
DISPLAYMANAGER_XGL_OPTS="-accel glxbuffer -accel xvbuffer"
## Path: Desktop/Display manager
## Description: settings to generate a proper displaymanager config
## Config: xdm,kdm,gdm
## Type: string(kdm,xdm,gdm,wdm,console)
## Default: ""
#
# Here you can set the default Display manager (kdm/xdm/gdm/wdm/console).
# all changes in this file require a restart of the displaymanager
#
DISPLAYMANAGER="gdm"

## Type: yesno
## Default: no
#
# Allow remote access (XDMCP) to your display manager (xdm/kdm/gdm). Please note
# that a modified kdm or xdm configuration, e.g. by KDE control center
# will not be changed. For gdm, values will be updated after change.
# XDMCP service should run only on trusted networks and you have to disable
# firewall for interfaces, where you want to provide this service.
#
DISPLAYMANAGER_REMOTE_ACCESS="no"

## Type: yesno
## Default: no
#
# Allow remote access of the user root to your display manager. Note
# that root can never login if DISPLAYMANAGER_SHUTDOWN is "auto" and
# System/Security/Permissions/PERMISSION_SECURITY is "paranoid"
#
DISPLAYMANAGER_ROOT_LOGIN_REMOTE="no"

## Type: yesno
## Default: yes
#
# Let the displaymanager start a local Xserver.
# Set to "no" for remote-access only.
# Set to "no" on architectures without any Xserver (e.g. s390/s390x).
#
DISPLAYMANAGER_STARTS_XSERVER="yes"

## Type: yesno
## Default: no
#
# TCP port 6000 of Xserver. When set to "no" (default) Xserver is
# started with "-nolisten tcp". Only set this to "yes" if you really
# need to. Remote X service should run only on trusted networks and
# you have to disable firewall for interfaces, where you want to
# provide this service. Use ssh X11 port forwarding whenever possible.
#
DISPLAYMANAGER_XSERVER_TCP_PORT_6000_OPEN="no"

## Type: string
## Default:
#
# Define the user whom should get logged in without request. If string
# is empty, display standard login dialog.
#
DISPLAYMANAGER_AUTOLOGIN="jig"

## Type: yesno
## Default: no
#
# Allow all users to login without password, but ask for the user, if
# DISPLAYMANAGER_AUTOLOGIN is empty.
#
DISPLAYMANAGER_PASSWORD_LESS_LOGIN="no"

## Type: yesno
## Default: no
#
# Display a combobox for Active Directory domains.
#
DISPLAYMANAGER_AD_INTEGRATION="no"

## Type: list(root,all,none,auto)
## Default: auto
#
# Determine who will be able to shutdown or reboot the system in kdm
# and gdm. Valid values are: "root" (only root can shutdown), "all"
# (everybody can shutdown), "none" (nobody can shutdown from
# displaymanager), "auto" (follow
# System/Security/Permissions/PERMISSION_SECURITY to decide: "easy
# local" is equal to "all", everything else is equal to "root"). Note
# that remote user can never shutdown in GDM.
#
DISPLAYMANAGER_SHUTDOWN="auto"

## Type: string
## Default: "auto"
#
# Mode to configure on output devices by default
# (RANDR 1.2 compatible drivers only).
#
# If set to "auto", DISPLAYMANAGER_RANDR_MODE_auto is used on laptops, and
# the empty string on workstations.
#
# The output is not explicitly enabled (read: disabled) if set to an empty
# string.
# If the variable contains a fully configured modeline (see default of
# DISPLAYMANAGER_RANDR_MODE_auto), the mode is defined and set.
# If the variable contains a mode name only, the mode has to be defined
# already.
#
# If a monitor is attached during Xstartup, or when invoking "xrandr --auto"
# during runtime, the output is correctly configured and a mode is
# automatically selected if none has been used so far.
#
# Variables are checked according to their extension for
# VGA DVI_I DVI_D DVI_A Composite S_Video Component LFP Proprietary
#
DISPLAYMANAGER_RANDR_MODE_VGA="auto"

## Type: string
## Default: "1024x768_60 64.11 1024 1080 1184 1344 768 769 772 795 -HSync +Vsync"

# Mode to use for laptops for DISPLAYMANAGER_RANDR_MODE_* on laptops only,
# when the according variable is set to "auto".
# (RANDR 1.2 compatible drivers only).
