=== brainwash_ is now known as brainwash
xubuntunoobWow! Hey everybody! I've been playing with Xubuntu for the past month or so and I've been all alone! So cool to see the usernames of so many Xubuntu fans!07:10
xubuntunoobFolks - I wonder if you can help me go back to plain old Xubuntu after I tried installing Kubuntu for a short while. I had an ordinary installation of Xubuntu 20.xxx LTS and I installed Kubuntu ... I think it was with the command "sudo apt install kubuntu-desktop". I tried it, thought it was cool and everything, but decided to stay with Xubuntu's07:16
xubuntunoobinterface. I think I removed all the Kubuntu stuff ... but there's still this gigantic awful login screen that only appeared after I installed Kubuntu. How can I go back to the default login screen?07:16
pmjdebruijnI'm guessing you want to go back to lightdm07:21
* pmjdebruijn has never messed with that07:21
pmjdebruijnstick around someone might know07:21
xubuntunoobArgh - I dunno what happened but I got disconnected07:23
xubuntunoobOne guy responded saying that I probably want to go back to LightDM and that I should wait for someone to help me07:24
xubuntunoobthat's the last thing I saw07:24
well_laid_lawnmaybe try   dpkg-reconfigure lightdm07:24
xubuntunoobI think I tried that last night at like 3am but I'm not sure. Let me try again to see if it does anything07:26
xubuntunoobOkay - I did it and it still gives me an absolutely enormous greeter - I don't think this is the original greeter, either07:28
well_laid_lawnxubuntunoob: that sounds like you have the kdm greeter in action - try removing it in the pacage manager07:50
xubuntunoobi removed all KDE related things07:50
xubuntunoobi think i got back to the default xubuntu greeter07:51
xubuntunoobnow i just need to figure out how to resize it07:51
xubuntunoobI followed instructions here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/LightDM#Greeter07:51
well_laid_lawnxubuntunoob: so it was lightdm you were using. Well done08:02
xubuntunoobThanks, man! Still can't find out how to resize the greeter - any ideas?08:18
well_laid_lawnnot offhand08:19
diogenes_xubuntunoob, greeter?08:22
well_laid_lawnyes he has a too large greeter and wants to resize it08:23
well_laid_lawnsettings in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf08:24
diogenes_i suspect nvidia driver.08:24
xubuntunoobi don't have an nvidia card - intel graphics08:29
diogenes_xubuntunoob, see if there's anything useful in lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings gui.08:33
xubuntunoobunfortunately resizing is not in there :(08:38
xubuntunoobJust tried this and I can't get in my machine - have to ssh in: https://askubuntu.com/questions/1092699/how-to-adjust-display-settings-for-lightdm-greeter-on-18-0408:38
xubuntunoobhad to reverse those changes via ssh. i'm back in with the desktop whew08:39
diogenes_xubuntunoob, maybe it will make sense to reinstall lightdm.08:40
xubuntunoobhow would you recommend i do that?08:40
xubuntunoobwith: dpkg-reconfigure lightdm08:43
xubuntunoob?08:43
diogenes_sudo apt reinstall lightdm lightdm-gtk-greeter08:44
diogenes_then reconfigure08:44
xubuntunoobI see. thank you08:46
xubuntunoobi'll try this now08:47
xubuntunoobbesides restarting the machine, how do I reload lightdm to reflect these changes?08:50
xubuntunoobsystemctl restart lightdm.service ???08:50
diogenes_yes08:50
xubuntunoobwell,that was fun09:02
