ubuntu 16 – gnome 3.18 – plymouth – gdm – bootscreen – welcome – startup – shutdown

nuggan

hi everybody,

firstly (MOST IMPORTANT):
i made plymouth to say ‘hi tom’ on startup to me, BUT i’d also like it to say ‘bye tom’ on shutdown (or restart)….
now, as far as i can figure, there is no such trigger in the /usr/share/plymouth/themes/ubuntu-gnome-logo/ubuntu-gnome-logo.script file. i believe i will have to add some lines of code – but which ones? 🙂

something completely different:
well any plymouth-motion stops way too quick – which means you have a flightless spinner hanging around while waiting for gdm (yes ubuntu 16 is really slow – i mean SLOW!!!! – i am coming from 15.10 – and no, it’s not my computer – maybe my swap is a bit too big – but that should fade away with time) – ok then gdm prompts you with login stuff, but THEN one might really have a hard time of waiting (up to 30 s) – is there a possibility to switch on a progressbar or spinner or something? or better – to speed up ubuntu or gnome (dont know which one has its feet on the brakes).

3rd thing:
i managed to customize almost anything of my desktop – colors, fonts, widgets, borders, icons, and the shell-stuff…. whatever – but the only thing i cannot find is that short glimpse of the background when gdm already has settled and the actual desktop zooms in. i’d like to change that bg-color (i know i am a nerd – lol);

anyway – i’ll be grateful for any clues….or as a wise person at the roadside once said: ‘…..will work for food !’

cheers!

ah – and ofcourse i want to play a sound on startup – i found a system prefix – but it doesnt work – but basically it should be the same as with .png’s anything should go – i think there’s also a line of code missing in the original ubuntu-gnome-logo.script

Does SSH prevent any Admin tasks

Geoff_Lane

Folks,

I have ssh access to a relative’s Raspberry Pi running Ubuntu Mate.

I have a cloned copy of the OS running on my own R-Pi.

I cannot install webmin on the remote machine but it installed fine on mine.

Whenever I try it on the remote machine it appears to freeze at ‘unpacking’.

I have tried gdebi with an already downloaded deb file. I’ve tried apt-get install, I’ve tried dpkg install, tried synaptic, all freeze at the unpacking webmin stage.

I always have to do a second log in via ssh and do shutdown -r to regain control.

Any inspiration would be appreciated.

I’ve been managing servers around the world through ssh for over a decade – almost 2 decades now. Never had any issues like you are. However, I do not use webmin or other similar tools like that, so cannot comment on those issues. If the installation of those tools requires sshd to be restarted or tweaks the firewall rules, that could be what you are seeing.

When you go to a hotspot, can you test doing the same thing to your r-pi at home?

us international keyboard layout

bogolisk2

Hi

I just installed ubuntu-gnome-desktop 16.04. I just couldn’t figure out how to enable us international keyboard.

Thank you.

Hi bogolisk2, unfortunately i don’t have Ubuntu GNOME available right now but in Ubuntu there is an icon labelled “Text Entry” in System Settings. Clicking on “+” allows the addition of further input sources or keyboard layouts.

From various web searches I think I’ve found that you need to look for “Region & Language” when using Ubuntu GNOME. It seems that the Ubuntu developers have a habit of renaming things. Hope that helps.

PaulW2U

I’ve just fired up a “live session” of Ubuntu GNOME 16.04 and “Region & Language” is where you need to add any additional keyboard preferences.

User switching in version 16.04

p_schott

Since upgrade to 16.04, I don’t see the user switching feature in its usual location in gnome-shell. The network connection and current user appear but there is no mean in the top-right menu to leave the current user account running and log into another, as it was possible with version 15.10 and below.
The problem had already been reported for the beta version here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2309544.
A bug report is also opened here : https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-shell/+bug/1577049, but it does not seem to raise much interest :-(.
Does anyone else experience the same issue ?

jim_deadlock

It is as you say in 16.04 (Gnome Shell 3.18) and also seems quite slow to log in/out in general. It doesn’t bother me personally because I never switch users, but I imagine it would be quite annoying for someone who does.

R Smit

Same problem here; it is the reason I will not switch to Gnome3.:(

rainerw2

Greetings. I have installed numerous 16.04 OS’s on PC’s and L-top’s and Netbook’s without experiencing the dilemma you describe. The Guest-Session is visible and activates. As I had never used it before I was surprised that its functions are of a temporary nature and any performance is not permanently stored – which is a good thing as far as I’m concerned.
I wonder of it is the difference between updating to 16.04 vs. installing? I hope you get it sorted.
Allow me to say; I am on many computers, for which I’m responsible, with ‘the brilliance of ubuntu’ since 14.04 to 16.04 without a failure, a crash, a calamity or total disaster (unlike Windows) – the odd stumble – yes, but than again, if one does not put the audio plug in the proper socket, of cause there is no sound.http://ubuntuforums.org/images/icons/icon7.png – and it took 4 hours of one of my finest colleagues to find out.

You seem to be slightjy off topic.
W’re talking about Ubuntu Gnome, right?
Fresh installation, 2 users.
When user one is logged in, the menu does not give the option to switch user, only to log off.
See attachment.

rainerw2

Hi R Smit, you got me there! Your thumbnail Pic is news to me – never knew about the function, never seen it. Do I ever stop finding another tweak to exploit.
Beside a Guest user, I have never worked on one OS with a variety of users. Have always installed 2 to 4 OS’s on one computer next to each other, in virtual boxes or separate harddrives, or obviously using a server. I even find this now flawed and insecure to some extend. (you may have seen my other post on this.)
I apologize for the misunderstanding and partially for my ignorance. http://ubuntuforums.org/images/icons/icon3.png

Same problem here; it is the reason I will not switch to Gnome3.:(

The menu item is missing on my system, as well.

However, by using a workaround, it’s possible to have multiple active logins:

L locks the screen, from where it’s possible to switch users.
goes to GDM which allows secondary logins.

Then, there are two ways to switch users:

goes straight to the other user session (probably F2=1st user, F3=2nd user, but this depends in part on whether you’ve opened virtual terminals before the second user login); or
goes to GDM which acts like an unlock screen.

The first takes a fair number of seconds (7-10) on my system (3 screens: 1 tablet, 2 monitors) for Xrandr to finish and the screens to settle down. The second takes longer. Centos/RedHat EL7 seems faster.

I’ve had a bit of instability in the display configurations when initially switching users (eg. one monitor will turn off, and I have to configure Display Settings), but after switching 2 or 3 times, it works stably.

Just logged in under CentOS 7 (stock, except FC23 kernel and FC23 xorg intel driver).

What a difference! Full switch from one user to another in 1/2 second or less (using . No long delays during switching, no flashing of screens, no screens turning off unexpectedly, no X/gnome session lock-up. It works cleanly and smoothly.

But this solution is not user-friendly I think. This spoils the otherwise nice Gnome interface.

dcmay-f

The “Switch User” menu item uses GDM to switch to another account – even once the other account is already logged in.

I just tried this under CentOS 7. Just like Ubuntu, there are substantial (5+ second) delays, flashing of screens, and GDM session lock-ups. (Fortunately, still worked …)

I think *that* spoils the otherwise nice Gnome experience :). So I feel that is much more user friendly — at least in RedHat / CentOS where it effects an almost instantaneous switch. In Xenial, it’s not.

But I fully agree this menu item should be there! I tried Xenial in tablet mode — and it seems there’s no way to switch users without a keyboard! unless this menu item gets added.

kurt18947

Yes, and rather irritating isn’t it? I discovered a work around but it may or may not work properly depending on graphics chipset. I prefer light-dm over gdm and there’s a package – dm-tool that enables user switching. The command is

dm-tool switch-to-greeter

I’ve installed that function and a couple others as .desktop files and use a Gnome extension to activate the .desktop file. The AMD board using integral AMD graphics (HD4200) works as expected. A T410 ThinkPad with Intel graphics doesn’t work correctly. The ThinkPad will launch the greeter page and will switch users but when switching back to the original user, the mouse pointer disappears. It’s active, I can see indications when I move the pointing stick around but there’s no pointer on the screen. Logging out and logging back in restores the pointer but that’s rather pointless. Possibly a different theme or cursor on the Thinkpad would help, I haven’t experimented with it.

Edit: Apparently the Intel bug is well known. It has to do with locked sessions/screens.

jbicha

Hi, this bug is fixed now. You should find Switch User by clicking your name in the system status menu in the top right corner of GNOME Shell.

experimancer

No it isn’t. I’m on Ubuntu 16.04.1 with the latest updates of all thje packages (27.10.2016) and the Swicth User is not displayed in the graphical desktopI. Also none of the workarounds (pressing super-L or CTRL-ALT-L) do not work – they only lock the screen, but do not let anyone but thje same logged-in account to unlock it.

Your above post, @jbicha is false, please remove or correct this bug that is serious regression in Ubuntu/Linux UI and user experience in general.

jbicha

@experimancer I did fix the original bug.

Are you using gdm or lightdm?

How did you add the other user?

Have you restarted the computer after applying updates?

About the workaround, on the unlock screen, there should be “Log in as another user”

The above does not work in Ubuntu/16.04.1, using super-L or ctrl-alt-Fx keys just locs the screen but does not let another user log in (the functionality that Switch User provides is still missing). This is not a *workaround* but just false and OT misi-information that does not relate to thish bug nor Ubuntu/16.04.

About the workaround, on the unlock screen, there should be “Log in as another user”

1. Using lightdm (and gdm in another install)

2. Other users added manually (adduser in bash) and in system UI (uids > 1001)

3. Computer restarted several times after updating to accountservice 0.6.40-2ubuntu11.2

4. Workarounds do not work, there is no “Login as another user” -option after super-L or ctrll-alt-L, the screen just gets locked and only the original user can unlock, pressing ctrl-alt-f7 does nothing and ctrl-alt-f1 just lets to log in as console user (not with graphical UI like the Switch User would).

jbicha

This is not a *workaround* but just false and OT misi-information that does not relate to thish bug nor Ubuntu/16.04.

Please stop using the word false and try to be more respectful here.

There was a bug and the bug was fixed. The issue you are experiencing is a different issue and will require a different solution once we figure out what’s different about your situation and what’s not working.

If you have some time, could you try starting from a virtual machine install of either Ubuntu 16.04 (default with Unity) or Ubuntu GNOME 16.04. If you can reproduce the bug, list the steps that you took. I did this in the original bug (in the Test Case in the bug description). When I said “Add user” there, I meant using the GNOME Settings app and clicking Users, then Unlock, then Add User.

kurt18947

Here is a workaround I used until the bug was fixed (which I just became aware of due to this thread). I created a desktop file – I’m using lightdm on Ubuntu Gnome 16.04.1 64 bit. Here’s my desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Terminal=false
Icon[en_US]=system
Name[en_US]=Switch-Users
Exec=dm-tool switch-to-greeter
Name=
Comment=

There is a similar workaround for GDM but I don’t have access to it right now. It uses something other than switch-to-greeter.

Hide icon from systemtray MATE

Hello dear ubuntu users and contributors, I’m on ubuntu 15.10, I was previously on linux Mint and it’s a really big pleasure for me to discover ubuntu MATE. So I wanna thank all contributors to this amazing project. So Im trying to hide an icon from the systemtray in the taskbar. Can anyone help me to achieve my task ? Thank’s in advance

Hello and Welcome !

Is this a system tray icon or application on the panel ? The mate-config-editor may have menu to toggle visibility for system tray icons.

Transparency not working in mate-terminal

jwbrase

In preparation for switching my main desktop over, I upgraded my laptop from Ubuntu-Mate Trusty to Xenial. I have a setup where I use compiz window rules to overlay a transparent, borderless gnome-terminal window over my desktop background. This setup was originally put together under Jaunty before Gnome went south, and has so far used gnome-terminal. When Gnome fell apart and I switched to mate, I did not immediately give up gnome-terminal as, aside from not honoring my gtk2 system theme, gnome terminal was still in good shape, and mate-terminal did not have the patches applied that gnome-terminal has on Ubuntu for using mousewheel scroll in the terminal. In Xenial, that is no longer an issue for mate-terminal, and gnome-terminal has officially jumped the shark: It no longer allows you to set a Window title for a given profile, which means that I can’t apply my compiz Window rules to a gnome-terminal instance, which means I will now have to switch over to mate-terminal.

I’ve just run into one hiccup: mate-terminal, despite having a transparency setting in its profile options, does not appear under any circumstances to honor that setting. Most Google results for the problem suggest turning on compositing in marco/metacity/whatever, but I’m using compiz, and all of compiz’s own transparency effects (such as trailfocus) are working just fine for mate-terminal windows.

Does anyone know what this issue is here?

Kubuntu version 16 new install – screen flickering using Firefox on Nvidia gr. card

richlion2

Hello,

I have an HP laptop with this graphics card:
NVIDIA Corporation G84GLM [Quadro FX 570M] (rev a1)

I had Kubuntu 15 and I used one of the recommended drivers that was on a list of drivers in the System Settings -> Additional Drivers. No problems after upgrading another Acer laptop to Kubuntu 16.
However, on this HP laptop I had to make a clean Kubuntu 16 install. In the System settings there are no additional drivers.
I have a problem with a flickering screen, especially using browsers, Firefox and Chromium seem to be affected. Is this something that can be fixed without installing Nvidia drivers?
If I have to install nvidia drivers, how do I install a recommended driver from the Ubuntu repository? Name, version?

Regards,
Rich
——
QIII

Please clarify:

16.04 or 16.10?

grahammechanical

Connected to the internet? Allow time for the utility to find the drivers?

For those who do not know, in Ubuntu 16.04 there are no AMD proprietary video drivers because AMD have not upgraded their proprietary video drivers to use the x server version in 16.04. That is not relevant in this particular situation.

When installing Ubuntu 16.04 (making an assumption that “16” is 16.04) on the HP did you tick the box “Install third party software?” That would have installed an Nvidia proprietary video driver.

Open System Settings>Details and see what it lists under Graphics. If it says Gallium 0.4 then the HP is running on the open source video driver Nouveau. If it says llvmpipe then a fallback open source video driver is being used because of some conflict with the proprietary video drivers. If it says something else, then that would indicate that an Nvidia driver is installed.

EDIT: Oh, you are on Kubuntu. Well, look for something that will give information about the OS to find out what video driver is being used.

Regards

richlion2

Hello,
this is the version I have:
rysio@rysio-HP-Compaq-8510w:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS
Release: 16.04
Codename: xenial

did you tick the box “Install third party software?”

Yes, I did. Checked in Muon in the Graphics section, can’t find things like Gallium nor llvmpipe.

When going to Settings -> Additional Drivers, still nothing, empty screen and I am connected to the Internet.

I just had some updates, so I’ll reboot the check the Additional Drivers again.

Thankss Guys

richlion2

Hi All,

I have not installed any Nvidia drivers, I also still cannot find anything in the Additional Drivers in System Settings. However everything seems to be working fine now, I think maybe another non-browser application is causing this issue. Can I ask what is the difference between version 16.04 and 16.10?

screenshots: with menu don’t work in 15.10; using Alt+PrntScrn; saving in ~/Pictures

anotherChris

Here’s the long story short (see below for the long story/explanation):

I wanted to take a screen shot with a menu open and couldn’t. So I looked and found out how to do this in Lubuntu with a scrot delay. At the same time, I figured out how to save my screenshots in the Pictures directory (where they logically belong) rather than in the Desktop directory.

My question:
1- Can someone give a non-technical explanation of why, from 11.10 to 15.10, the ability to take a screen shot with a menu open was not implemented? Is there no demand, or would doing bloat the LXDE, or what?

Thanks.

Long story, or how to take screenshots in Lubuntu 15.10 with a menu open and save them in the Pictures directory, below…

I wanted to take a screen shot while hovering over the wi-fi icon in my panel with the wi-fi menu open. Screenshot would not work. So, I found the following:

http://askubuntu.com/questions/184618/taking-screenshots-in-lubuntu-11-10
and
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2185294

These both indicated that what I wanted to do was not possible in 11.10 and 13.10, so it’s probably not possible in 15.10, either. I wonder why this hasn’t been implemented? Anyhow…

The second thread pointed me to this link:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/252281/how-do-i-take-screenshots-with-a-delay

From these three resources, I was able to figure out how to configure Lubuntu’s screenshots to do what I’d like… i.e., take a photo of everything on the desktop and save it in the Pictures directory…

In Lubuntu 15.10…

(1) open your Home Folder /home/username, then select View -> Show Hidden
(2) open .config/openbox
(3) open the file called lubuntu-rc.xml with a simple text editor and save a backup (I called it lubuntu-rc.xml.backup).
(4) in lubuntu-rc.xml, find…




lxsession-default screenshot window
and




lxsession-default screenshot

(5) change the bolded text as follows…




scrot -b -d 5 ~/Pictures/screenshot_%Y:%m:%d:%H:%M:%S.png
and




scrot -b ~/Pictures/screenshot_%Y:%m:%d:%H:%M:%S.png

What you just did was change the Prnt Scrn button so that it takes a screenshot and puts it in your Pictures directory and change Alt+Prnt Scrn so that it does the same thing after a 5 second delay. This 5 second delay allows you time to open a menu in case you want to take a screenshot with a menu open. Note that Alt+Prnt Scrn no longer takes a screen shot of the current window, which was its original function.

(6) Open a terminal and run

openbox –reconfigure
To quote from the source: “(You won’t see anything happen and you’ll get back your prompt if you haven’t messed up anything. If you have messed up something, you’ll get an error. That’s when the back-up comes handy.) Running the command is a necessary step to ensure that your edits to lubuntu-rc.xml are now active. (http://askubuntu.com/questions/252281/how-do-i-take-screenshots-with-a-delay)”

Finished! I just did this on Lubuntu 15.10 and it worked.

Have you tried the program “Take ScreenShot” it has a option to put in a delay for the purpose you were talking about with no tweaks or scripts. I’m sure it’s in the Ubuntu Software Center.

What’s the name of the executable? I’m guessing “Take ScreenShot” is the .desktop name?

I’m asking because of this on Lubuntu 14.04:
07:38 AM ~ $ acse screenshot | grep take
gtk-vector-screenshot – takes screenshots of applications as PDF or SVG files
07:39 AM ~ $

acse = apt-cache search

Is that the “Take ScreenShot” program?

Hi, the point of that Ask Ubuntu QnA was to get delayed screenshots using default applications (= those that are part of the distro) and not to install additional software.

Of course, it all depends on one’s requirements. Some heavily into graphics will want more fully-featured software.

mr-tin-man

The program “Take ScreenShot” was, and is part of my Ubuntu-Mate, I also run Lubuntu on another machine, I looked there and, it is not a part of their installed default programs. I looked in the Lubuntu Software Center, and did not see it. I loaded the Synaptic Package Manager, and searched there. It’s Called Gnome Screenshot there, that’s the same program that is installed by default with Ubuntu-Mate..

I figured if your trying to get a job done, you’d want to take advantage of what was there for your needs, whether it was a default installed program or not..

The default installed program in Lubuntu, scrot, has the provision to take delayed screenshots and to get the stated job done.

mr-tin-man

Glad to know that, I’ll take a look see. I don’t use that machine much, just keep it updated. I like lubuntu, as well as k, and mate. My full time machine is running mate now, and I’ve grown kinda fond of it. Thanks for the info, i’ll put in on my desktop..

Again thanks, mr tin man

No sound output in 16.04

Gridwalker

I have lost all sound in Ubuntu 16.04 and I cannot work out why. Pulse Audio Mixer clearly shows that it is detecting an audio stream, and the audio was working only yesterday. My cables, speakers and volume levels are all fine. I have tested all of the output jacks using headphones, reinstalled Pulse Audio, pavucontrol & ALSA, and followed numerous guides that I have found online, all with no success.

I don’t want to use 5.1 surround or optical output – I just want to use a single 3.5mm jack, but checking sound output devices in the settings app only shows S/PDIF Digital output as an option. I have tried testing the audio using 15.04 & 15.10 live CDs without success (16.04 live won’t boot at all), but this should be irrelevant because the sound was working yesterday!

Any thoughts?

Interestingly, I have found another person with the same motherboard reporting similar symptoms on a windows build : http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1781146/asus-m5a99fx-pro-realtek-sound-problem.html

The eventual solution was down to driver certification, so I don’t know how useful that is …

Bios updated … no luck

Bump … anybody?

QIII

Hello!

Please don’t wait so long to bump your post. It was surely buried pretty deep.

We consider about 12 hours without a response to be a reasonable time to wait before bumping. That will get you some visibility on the other side of the globe.

Cheers!

Gridwalker

Sorry … I had some new components on order, so I figured I’d wait until I’d completed my rebuild before coming back to the problem.

I will bare this in mind for the future.

What is the model of motherboard you are using? Also, can you include the output of “sudo lspci”? Oh, and are you using the 3.55mm jack on the front of the PC or the back? If you are using the front I’d recommend trying the back (and vice versa as a test) and make sure your speakers/headphones are plugged into the lime green coloured jack and not the block or pink ones.

do not where you got to but sometimes the default setting on a new install or upgrade do not go to where you need

so install pavucontrol
sudo apt install pavucontrol

and click on configuration

The default here was Analog Stereo Duplex

For me it meant zero sound

Changed it to surround further down the list and voila
So try that
Oe whoever reads this thread with same very annoying drawback

see pics for help

friends,i solved the problem of no sound after update to ubuntu 16
you just open alsamixer in terminal and unmute line by typing m you set the automute disabled and loopback disabled
this loopback is the culprit it prevents sound to play through output
