Thread: Desktop Effects not allowing me to login

  1. #1

    Default Desktop Effects not allowing me to login

    I'm running SuSE 11.3 with GNOME. I've just enabled the desktop effects, & then it crashed back to the login screen. Now every time I try to login, the screen goes black & crashes back to the login screen again. I just want to get the desktop effects turned off & switch it back to standard settings...

    actually this setting is done in root user so i must hv to open it...
    i tried using FailSafe but after login it doesn't crash back to login screen bt screen also doesn't show anything it stays a WHITE high bright Screen...

    i just started using linux distributions so please help me by giving solution in detail...
    runtime level is 5 at login time i also tried it with 3.

    Thanks in advance

    Default Re: Desktop Effects not allowing me to login

    This is off the Ubuntu forums but should work on openSUSE as well. At GDM (Login Screen) press Control+Alt+F1 and log in with your username and password. Once you have logged in type this command in and press [ENTER]:
    Code:
    gconftool-2 --set /desktop/gnome/session/required_components/windowmanager --type string metacity
    This will disable compiz.

    Once you have done that type
    Code:
    logout
    to logout of the terminal and press Control+Alt+F7 to go back to GDM (Login Screen) and see if you can login.
