GDM

Postby S_V_S on Tue Feb 18, 2014 7:06 am

Hello everybody,

I downloaded a new GDM Theme, named Snow Canvas, I tried it and suddenly from that moment on, a black screen can't allow me to do anything.

Selecting everything ( with ctrl + A) there appear some words :« ReferenceError : Can't find variable mdm_set_current_user file:// usr/share/mdm/html-themes/Snow_Canvas/ 1 »

What can I do?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hello, S_V_S.

Maybe resetting the MDM configuration to some functional settings (mine) will help you get out of your plight.
Switch to one of the 6 pseudo console monitors by pressing <Ctrl><Alt><F1>. (This will take you to console tty #1.)
Then try to remove any reference to the malfunctioning GDM theme Snow_Canvas from your MDM configuration by following the steps explained here: MDM.

HTH,
Karl

ok Karl,
a friend of mine opened a Fallback mode of mint,
I don't know how he did it.

So I could change the GDM theme from the unworking one to another.
But I thank you anyhow, Karl!

Hey, S_V_S.

Great your MDM greeter screen is back to life and you can logon to your GUI again. - A bit of a pity we will never learn what exactly your friend has done. We would have loved to learn a new trick. :-)

Cheers,
Karl
