Exclamation When I start my laptop Konsole on Linux 9.04 starts fullscreen and asks me to log in


When I start my other laptop konsole appears without a close button and asks me to log in. then I log in and it says:

Hi James,
Either
(1) You don't have an x-server installed or
(2) you do but there's a configuration problem which could involve your graphics card, keyboard, mouse or something along those lines.

The solution:
In the case of (1) install the x-server (the Ubuntu website will tell you how to do this.
In the case of (2), check the log files starting with
/var/log/Xorg.0.log and see if there are any errors. That should provide you with enough info to find a solution or report back here on the results.
cheers,
jdk

I presume that this isn't really konsole (and please tell me if I'm wrong, because this makes a big difference to which problem we are trying to cure).

What I think is going on is that you are seeing a real command-line terminal shell; in comparison, konsole is an emulated command line shell that runs under X-windows. If you run 'ps -ef' it will give you an idea of what programs are running (there may be many of them) and my guess is that konsole isn't one of them.

If there are too many for one screen, you could feed the output to less, or get the system to do the work

ps -ef | grep -i onsol

will return any programs which have details that include the specified string, in this case 'onsol' (the ps -ef command will include this, but as it is less the full string 'konsole' the difference ought to be very apparent).

Equally, my bet is that you don't have anything to do with x windows running, so you could try the same thing with x or the display manager.
