Software - Support / Re: LXqt login screen does not show text
« Last post by hendrikL on 2024/04/30, 09:22:51 »
I think some dependencies are missing or similar.

I have a test-build for sddm, qt6 ready, but it also works on qt5.
If you want to give it a chance, then test it.
It is really black, pure understatement!

https://github.com/hhl/sddm-theme-hhl/blob/feb486ff97124ae021c53db17d3c6645a16ccf87/Download/debian-unstable/sddm-theme-black-qt6/sddm-theme-black-qt6_1.0-3_all.deb

You can check it here https://github.com/hhl/sddm-theme-hhl/tree/master/Download/debian-unstable/sddm-theme-black-qt6

To test a theme, you can invoke the following command, in this case patience.
Code: [Select]
~$ sddm-greeter --test-mode --theme /usr/share/sddm/themes/patience
After executing that command, it opens sddm in full-screen.
Maybe you have to change to a getty, like tty3, to kill that sddm-greeter process with killall <foo>, and then take a look at the terminal, perhaps you find an error which is related to the disappearing of the letters.

A new installation isn't an option!

I do see some flickering after installing the theme for giants, so it may be Intel graphics related.

I tried all of your suggestions with the qml files and changing white to black. Still no solution. I compared some of the files to the sddm themes on my other siduction installs and they are the same.

I'll look a bit closer tomorrow, I'd hate to have to reinstall just because of the login screen.

Thanks again

Installed in virtual machine KVM, LxQt up to date!
sddm-theme patience.



Could it be a graphic card thingy? AMD? I am a bit clueless.

I checked the patience sddm theme with plasma5/Kde iso, It is working, looks a bit different (because of wayland, I use sddm also with), but everything is OK.

Well, first I think there was a big qt update, maybe? I'm downloading the latest lxqt iso to check, but definitely not the “patience” one!

What can be checked, is /usr/share/sddm/theme/patience/components/PwBox.qml, search there for "textColor: "<color>" it should be "black", and also check UserBox.qml in the Section TextInput { ... color: "<color>" }, should also be black!

If they are OK, then you have a little problem, you need to install a more resent sddm-theme, "apt search sddm-theme siduction"
It is easy to change the background of the theme if you want so!
You can ask, or take a look at the theme file, you will find the solution.

Otherwise, change them to black and restart sddm and hope.

Software - Support / LXqt login screen does not show text
« Last post by GoinEasy9 on 2024/04/29, 17:41:57 »
  [ You are not allowed to view this attachment ]  Hi All

I recently moved and my trusty EEEpc using LXqt wasn't updated for 3 months. Since the update, the login screen (photo attached) has nothing on it but the user and password box and the icons below. typing shows nothing, but, if I'm careful I can type the user name and password into the boxes (without seeing what I'm typing) and am able to log in. Everything works perfectly except for the login screen.   
Does anyone have an idea where I can look to solve this?

Ich bin kürzlich umgezogen und mein treuer EEEpc mit LXqt wurde 3 Monate lang nicht aktualisiert. Seit dem Update ist auf dem Anmeldebildschirm (Foto im Anhang) nichts zu sehen, außer dem Benutzer- und Passwortfeld und den Symbolen darunter. Bis auf den Anmeldebildschirm funktioniert alles einwandfrei.   
Hat jemand eine Idee, wo ich dieses Problem lösen kann?

Thanks in advance

Installation - Support / No Installation on Dell XPS 13 9343 possible
« Last post by Lanzi on 2024/04/29, 16:00:02 »
I tried a lot of combinations on an older Dell XPS. I have done thns on serveral xps13, but this one is really hard.
Anybody has this one and can tell me the right combination from:

O Legacy Boot
O UEFI Boot
O Fastboot
O TPM
O Secure Boot

I can install Siduction, but at reboot I got a "disc not found"-Error

Thanks for any help!

BTW: it has Firmeware A18, the most actual seems to be A20, but I need a installed windows to flash (bios in .exe format)... And I think that it should work also with A18...

.... und was kann man daraus schließen?

EDIT:
eben sehe ich dass es noch folgende Fehlermeldung gibt:
Quote
Error: Das Depot »http://ftp.halifax.rwth-aachen.de/siduction/extra unstable Release« enthält keine Release-Datei.
Notice: Eine Aktualisierung von solch einem Depot kann nicht auf eine sichere Art durchgeführt werden, daher ist es standardmäßig deaktiviert.
Notice: Weitere Details zur Erzeugung von Paketdepots sowie zu deren Benutzerkonfiguration finden Sie in der Handbuchseite apt-secure(8).

Ich habe keine Ahnung von der Konfiguration eines Debian Repos, aber hier scheint der Fehler ja klar benannt,
"deaktiviert" weil "keine Release-Datei".

Beim Vergleich zwischen den Repos in Aachen und Stuttgart wird der Fehler deutlich. In allen Aachener Verzeichnissen fehlen die Dateinen "InRelease" "Release" und "Release.gpg".
