ElementaryOS Pantheon Greeter (login screen) text chars are square boxes, how to fix?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 15, 2014
This is actually a question concerning ElementaryOS ( elementaryos.org ), which is based off of the latest stable Ubuntu. I posted this question on their forums but I have not received any response.
The login screen (Pantheon-Greeter) is not displaying text properly; all the text, including account names, password input, date (but not time), are displaying the generic white little boxes.
How can I fix this, or reinstall Pantheon Greeter, or reset it? I believe it got messed up after I followed this guide: http://www.binarytides.com/gorgeous-...-ubuntu-linux/
none of the other system menus/apps are affected, just the login screen, so it's isolated to the Pantheon Greeter. How can I fix this? Thank you!
Guest account on login screen should not be default how to fix

This is very bad security.
I found a way to disable, though, on mdeslaur's blog. I wanted to post it here for people to find. Not sure if this works with regular Ubuntu. Many thanks to him!
Just sudo your text editor and "The guest account can be disabled by editing /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and adding "allow-guest=false" to the "SeatDefaults" section. "
I've used this on my laptop and it worked great.

[SOLVED] Ubuntu stuck at black login screen; problem with .X11unix file
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 1, 2012
I have an Acer Aspire One with the latest version of Ubuntu installed with the GNOME UI. Everything has been running fine on the computer until recently, when I hit a snag that I can't solve by myself.
I'm not sure what might have caused the error, other than a possible update glitch from Update Manager, as that is the last thing I did before I shut down the laptop when it was working last. The updates installed fine, but they might have bored the system somehow.
One day, out of the blue, I turned on my laptop and I was confronted with the black terminal login screen. After entering my credentials, I tried the "startx" command, but I received the following error, "/usr/.X11-unix has 7111 bad permissions," or something like that.
So I searched around online, and there were a few suggestions to use "chmod -7111 /usr/.X11-unix". So I used that, and then ran "startx" and I was able to boot into the GUI without a problem.
[SOLVED] Where are configuration files for gdm login screen under Ubuntu 11.04?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 4, 2012
I am running Ubuntu 11.04 'natty' on several computers, mostly upgraded from earlier versions of Ubuntu. During the past few version releases, utilities for configuring the login screen have changed, and apparently there have been changes in the configuration files where the parameters for the login screen have changed, along with the location of these files.
My problem is the some settings when could be made under 10.04 or 10.10 can't be modified by current programs, such as "Ubuntu Tweak" and "Login Screen". In particular, in an earlier version I was able to set a line of text which appears above where the user name and password are selected or entered. The current utilities are not able to access this text, so I am left with text referring to an earlier version of Ubuntu, for example.
What I need to know is where the configuration is stored, so I can change it 'manually'. It doesn't seem to be under /etc/gdm - the settings in /etc/gdm/custom.conf don't have

stop lubuntu login screen to auto start
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 21, 2012
there is one desktop in my office that is dual boot running ubuntu v.10 and ms-os (boot to grub). since last week, in my spare time, I try to fix it. the ms-os is infected by virus (what a surprise), because a co-worker bring her children to work and they installed any random games that internet can offer. obviously it got infected. so i wipe out that lame os.
but than i update ubuntu to kernel 3.2 and sudo apt-get install lubuntu, because unity reduce productive for office duty.
this is the first time i use lubuntu, so i know a little in how to configure it...
for example, every time i login, i got bombarded by unnecessary error pop-up along with request to report it. how to stop this auto report? the error is not that important, since after i close the report request, lubuntu just running fine.
i figure disabling as much as possible start-up service perhaps will solve the problem. mainmenu >preferences > desktop session setting offer less option than gnome-desktop start-up
