I’ve been redirected here from the XFCE forum, because my issues don’t appear to be related to the window manager:
Since last week’s system updates I have been encountering some unwanted changes of behaviour: I’m not sure which of these are XFCE and which are OpenSuse/Gnome.
Login screen: The login screen used to list all the users (except root) + other, so you clicked then typed the appropriate password. The layout of the pane hasn’t changed, but now it only shows “other” and you have to type in username, press return and then type password.
Fortunately I’d encountered this type of login on another Linux distro, but it has totally flummoxed the volunteers who use my computer on days I’m not working.
Can I restore the listing of users? I can’t see any setting in preferences manager.
My dual head script is running at logon, but failing because “there is no output at VGA1” - So I’m left with the same (or truncated) display on two different-resolution screens.
xrandr --output VIRTUAL1 --off --output LVDS1 --mode 1366x768 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal --output VGA1 --mode 1280x1024 --pos 1366x0 --rotate normal
(note that the touchpad command hasn’t ever worked as part of this script - I’ve had to open a console and enter it manually)
output from running the script manually is:
warning: output LVDS1 not found; ignoring
warning: output VGA1 not found; ignoring
Most of my linux experience has been with CLI webservers, so I’m a desktop newbie.
