First off, lemme say sorry if I’m repeating a topic. I’m not entirely sure what keywords to search the forum for.
Now, to describe my problem:
I installed openSUSE 11.4 from the DVD and was being fairly liberal with the features I was adding so I could see what was offered. At installation, I installed all the desktop environments (KDE, GNOME, Xfce, LXDE and all the lesser ones that came with them (like IceWM, etc.)).
So, last night, I was testing out all the desktops one-by-one to see what they looked like to decide which I would keep and which I would get rid of if it ever came to cleaning the partition.
I tried one, the name of which I’ve regrettably forgotten, and the desktop was just blank… completely blank. I just had a blank, black screen and because there was no GUI, I didn’t know how to interact or log out. Naturally, I restarted the machine, only to be brought back into that same desktop (I had enabled auto-login during installation).
At first I had thought that the system was broken, but I hit the PrntScr button while going crazy on the keyboard and the screenshot dialog popped up. I clicked “Help” and searched “keyboard shortcuts” in the hope that there’d be a shortcut I could use to log out. As you might have guessed, I had no luck with that.
I figure my last hope is either:
A) To find a Terminal command that will turn off auto-login, or
B) Just re-install everything from scratch.
So, my question is: Does anyone know any commands that can do this or maybe not that exactly, but still fix my problem?
PS: When the screenshot dialog came up and, consequently, the help windows, their title bars looked like Xfce’s windows’ title bars. I also tried some keyboard shortcuts (like Alt+F2) which would usually work, but didn’t.
