lightdm login screen background on fedora19

0 votes

The login screen provided by lightdm (do I have this right?) on Fedora 19 is not as attractive as the one provided by Fedora 17 (not lightdm)? Is there any way to configure for a different image.

I believe that information is kept in /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf.
Try changing the line....

I cannot manage to get fedora 19 to start a vnc server on reboot. I have tried various approaches:

a) edit /etc/systemd/system/vncserver@:1.service It does not work. It kills any vncserver I am running at :1, but *never* starts a new one.
systemctrl status vncserver@:1.service reports the service as dead, but without any error message.

b) I wrote a small bash script that starts vncserver at :1, and set a cronjob on the user. The server runs ok when I run the script from the terminal (I can see gnome desktop in it), but gnome does not start from the cronjob. (I have even set a sleep of 30 seconds to delay the start of the vncserver). The vncserver starts, but it is empty.

Method b worked in fedora 18, but not anymore in fedora 19. What is the way to start a tiger vnc server at reboot for a user?

Does anyone know what happened to the calculator? I upgraded to F19 and now the calculator shows up like a 2.00 simple calculator.

I'm trying to set up Joomla on my laptop to play around with a site I'm planning. However SELinux seems to block write access for the installation routine to the direcotry /var/www/html and none of the solutions I've found by googling to allow SELinux httpd write access seems to work (installation hangs immediately).

setenforce 0 deosn't have any effect either as far as I can tell, as I still can't install Joomla. Anyone successfully installed Joomla 3 on Fedora 19 please can tell how I should proceed?

I have added a new service which starts a second httpd instance in fedora 19. The pid of the process is stored in /run/http-xxx directory, and my problem is that this directory disappears after each reboot.

How can I stop the system from deleting this folder in /run?
