After you edit the login screen, you may want to share your work on blogs and forums. However, you simply cannot just press the print-screen button to take screenshot of the login screen in Ubuntu. To do so, you can use a workaround command to preview the login screen and take screenshot of it.
How to disable user list in login screen?

I don't want Ubuntu to list the available users in the log-in screen. I want the old behavior back, where the user had to enter the user name before entering the password. At least that should be an easily configurable option. I have tried setting /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/disable_user_list to true, but that doesn't help.

How do I remove the user name lists from the login screens in Xubuntu 12.04? I don't think it is the same as the way for Ubuntu, and that is all I can find.
13.04 upgrade, after login screen desktop goes black
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 4, 2013
I upgraded my laptop to 13.04, and everything worked fine. It upgraded, restarted and I was using it for several days. Recently, some upgrades were available so naturally I let it do its thing. After restart of the system though, the screen goes blank after the login.
Everything looks good and works fine up to that point. As soon as I put in my password and hit Enter, the whole screen goes black.
I was able to still open the terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T, but nothing else to my knowledge.
So my questions are:
1. What happened?
2. How can I fix this?
Thanks in advance!!
IT appears that the proper screen is displayed before login, after suspending the computer, and also if trying to switch to a Guest Session. But as soon as it SHOULD show the desktop, it is only a black screen.
triple monitor works fine on login screen, but breaks upon login (13.04)

I have three monitors, two DVI and one HDMI. I have a GeForce GTX 660 with nvidia driver 313.30.
On the login screen the three monitors work fine. So I don't think anything is wrong with the xorg.conf file:
Once I log in, however, the second monitor gets cloned on the third monitor. The only way to fix it is by launching nvidia-settings and setting up the monitors again. Works fine after I apply the settings.
in the nvidia settings, the first monitor is labeled DPF-0 (DVI), the second (HDMI) DPF-1, and the third (DVI) DPF-3:
These settings are correct.
However under settings/Display it is completely wrong:
The first monitor is detected as "digital display", set Left of "ViewSonic Corp"
The second monitor is detected as "ViewSonic Corp" but is actually the "Ancor Communications" monitor, set Right of "Digital Display"
The third monit

Trying to set up rsync so I can transfer files between my two boxes over the web on a cron script or something. Anyway, I read that the rsync daemon isn't secure and that I should do it over ssh, so, I'm trying to set ssh up but I keep getting DC'd after a successful login.

[SOLVED] Unable to remote ssh login (permission denied)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 13, 2013
Im using RHEL 6. I have setup two user accounts as below:
1. john (home dir: /home/john)
2. robert (home dir: /home/john/robert)
After I setup both account, I’ve no problem to login using john account from remote terminal but login using robert was failed with error message ‘permission denied’.
This only happened when I used remote terminal to login but if used switch user (su –l robert) internally from the server which the user account robert was created, I managed to login.
My early assumption was this error occurred due to home dir of robert which was setup under john home dir. Unfortunately changing the permission of home dir also didn’t give any helps.
And fyi, I have no problem to login using other user accounts including root as these account home directories are independently setup unlike john and robert accounts.
I wonder if anyone has encountered the same issue when setting up such users account/home directories?
