trying an openbox ldxe version, having issues -- [SOLVED]

Post#1 by jcas1411 » 02 Oct 2013, 19:18

Playing around with my derivative on an openbox, lxde and confused where the greeter is changeable. Everything I find it should be loading a different greeter, where can I change this to a different greeter. I'm using sbo packages.

Thanks,
John

This is not a answer to your question. However, I imagine that ncmprhnsbl will answer to it.

Maybe you will be interested to the openbox module that he has developped:

@jcas1411
lxdm greeters are stored in /usr/share/lxdm/themes. default one is defined in /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf:

Code: Select all

## the theme of greeter
theme=Industrial

Yep, That begins my issue. I dont think the proper greeter is loading and I cant figure out why. Here is my lxdm.conf

autologin=root

## uncomment and set timeout to enable timeout autologin,
## the value should >=5
# timeout=10

## default session or desktop used when no systemwide config
# session=/usr/bin/startlxde

## uncomment and set to set numlock on your keyboard
# numlock=0

## set this if you don't want to put xauth file at ~/.Xauthority
# xauth_path=/tmp

# not ask password for users who have empty password
# skip_password=1

## greeter used to welcome the user
greeter=/usr/libexec/lxdm-greeter-gtk

[server]
## arg used to start xserver, not fully function
# arg=/usr/bin/X -background vt1
# uncomment this if you really want xserver listen to tcp
# tcp_listen=1
# uncoment this if you want reset the xserver after logou
# reset=1

[display]
## gtk theme used by greeter
gtk_theme=Clearlooks

## background of the greeter
bg=/usr/share/wallpapers/stripes-lxdm.jpg

## if show bottom pane
bottom_pane=1

## if show language select control
lang=1

## if show keyboard layout select control
keyboard=0

## the theme of greeter
theme=Industrial

[input]

[userlist]
## if disable the user list control at greeter
disable=0

## whitelist user
white=

## blacklist user
black=

i think the greater you are getting is default one. no issue there.
please replace content of /usr/share/lxdm/themes/Industrial with porteus (LXDE) one and check if it changes.

I tried, booted porteus 2.0.1 32-bit and copied over the industrial theme to my world, rebooted into runlevel 4 and it still shows the greeter above. I dont think this is the industrial lxde greeter. :wall:

found it.. took me a while to realize that this was a xdm greeter being loaded from an unmodified rc.4 script. :fool:
