How hard could it be? A login manager in BASH

Posted 07-11-2011 at 08:34 PM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

As I have previously elaborated, I hat the Gnome Login Manager. To summarise: it is bulky and slow.

I am currently using SLim as my login manager, for it is fast and very customisable. It however lacks a few features I want:
  1. Render of the date and time
  2. An easy way to receive a list of configured commands to for example, turn the computer off ( from now written as 'power commands' )
  3. UI elements to allow the user to turn the computer off without having to first login

if anyone feels the way i felt about the original linux distro(i'm using fedora)login screen,which was eventually very boring than it is very help to change your login screen.
to change your login screen first make sure that the image which you want to put as login screen is located in...
.....because you will not be able to access your home folder when switching to new login screen...
then follow these commands
1)login as root in the terminal

Logon to Multiple Samba Servers

Posted 06-23-2011 at 03:41 AM by barani_pd

I have three Linux Servers running Samba shares in them. All are meant for different purpose. For administrative purpose and running some utilities in these servers\shares from Windows XP system, we use "net use Drive: \\ServerName\ShareName" command to map the share as a drive. During the process for each server we are to enter username and password. Is there a way by which I use my windows username and password for the logon.

Note: The Samba username and password are similar...

What to do when stops log in?

1. Install the package "amsn-data_0.97.2~debian-0ubuntu3~hardy1_all.deb" (or other amsn-data package suitable for your system configuration), if it still does not login in the aMSN go to step 2...
