Thanks, will try it.
Package Size: 23519 K
Package Installed Size: 59160 K
That's a long wait  Wink

added:
Need to get 60.5MB of archives.
After unpacking 166.3MB of additional disk space will be used.
It seems even longer than I thought.

This will basically give you a very stripped down version of kde.
It shouldn't impact your current installation or xfce, but you never know...

It's a bit overkill, given the problem.

I installed and then removed kdebase. it required quite a few dependencies, so I ended up with 160 MB of additional stuff on my HD. Than I removed it, but slapt-get removed only 110 MB, and that's no good b/c I have less than 350 MB left on my root partition, and it sometimes makes me really nervous...
After removing KDE the true fun begun - it comepletely messed up my login screen:
it make it look... well...it's hard to explain... the whole preytyness of Bela is gone now, it's grey and white, with black background, instead of root image there is a list of some login options(no budulay one, though) that I see for a first time...
Also whole /usr/share/config folder is empty.
But the worst thing is that I couldn't normally login - when I type username and password and push login button to login into LXDE, it gives me xterm on black screen and nothing more... I had to type startlxde to get to my desktop...
Do you have any suggestions beside reinstalling VL, b/c I really don't want to do it...
Thanks in advance.

The main reason for that, I think, is that the downloaded packages are in your system (inside /home/ftp/). You can delete those that you don't want. That's a package cache, so that if you want to install them after removing, gslapt does not have to download them.

I suspect that is the xdm login manager. Not kdm as you had before. Removing kdebase made kdm go away as well.

Are there any login options around that allow you to choose the window manager that you want to use? When you're logging in it's going to some other very simple window manager... there should be a way of selecting LXDE.

By default, VL ships with kdm-small, which gives you kdm but not much more than that. kdebase is... the base of kde, that contains kdm. I'm not sure the kdm-small package is in the repos, though. If it is, install it and you should be fine. If it isn't, then maybe you can somehow extract it from the VL cd. Other than that, I guess the only option is to go for kdebase.

I'm sorry that my "solutions" seem to be getting you into more trouble.

I've just confirmed that the kdm-small package is in the repos here:

http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.9/packages/kde/kdm-small-3.5.5-i586-2vl58.tlz

My bad, I thought that package wasn't there, so I suggested installing kdebase.
Hopefully, after (re)installing kdm-small, you should have a kdm login manager.

1.) rename your kdmrc file to kdmrc.old
2.) create a new kdmrc with a text editor
3.) copy everything from the code below
4.) paste it into your new kdmrc and save it
5.) reboot -- just for fun

Code:
# KDM master configuration file
#
# Definition: the greeter is the login dialog, i.e., the part of KDM
# which the user sees.
#
# You can configure every X-display individually.
# Every display has a display name, which consists of a host name
# (which is empty for local displays specified in {Static|Reserve}Servers),
# a colon, and a display number. Additionally, a display belongs to a
# display class (which can be ignored in most cases; the control center
# does not support this feature at all).
# Sections with display-specific settings have the formal syntax
# "[X-" host [":" number [ "_" class ]] "-" sub-section "]"
# You can use the "*" wildcard for host, number, and class. You may omit
# trailing components; they are assumed to be "*" then.
# The host part may be a domain specification like ".inf.tu-dresden.de".
# It may also be "+", which means non-empty, i.e. remote displays only.
# From which section a setting is actually taken is determined by these
# rules:
# - an exact match takes precedence over a partial match (for the host part),
#   which in turn takes precedence over a wildcard ("+" taking precedence
#   over "*")
# - precedence decreases from left to right for equally exact matches
# Example: display name "myhost:0", class "dpy".
# [X-myhost:0_dpy] precedes
# [X-myhost:0_*] (same as [X-myhost:0]) precedes
# [X-myhost:*_dpy] precedes
# [X-myhost:*_*] (same as [X-myhost]) precedes
# [X-+:0_dpy] precedes
# [X-*:0_dpy] precedes
# [X-*:0_*] (same as [X-*:0]) precedes
# [X-*:*_*] (same as [X-*])
# These sections do NOT match this display:
# [X-hishost], [X-myhost:0_dec], [X-*:1], [X-:*]
# If a setting is not found in any matching section, the default is used.
#
# Every comment applies to the following section or key. Note that all
# comments will be lost if you change this file with the kcontrol frontend.
# The defaults refer to KDM's built-in values, not anything set in this file.
#
# Special characters need to be backslash-escaped (leading and trailing
# spaces (\s), tab (\t), linefeed (\n), carriage return (\r) and the
# backslash itself (\\)).
# In lists, fields are separated with commas without whitespace in between.
# Some command strings are subject to simplified sh-style word splitting:
# single quotes (') and double quotes (") have the usual meaning; the backslash
# quotes everything (not only special characters). Note that the backslashes
# need to be doubled because of the two levels of quoting.

Thanks for replyes.

he main reason for that, I think, is that the downloaded packages are in your system (inside /home/ftp/)
I think it needed 160 MB to just install all that stuff... There was 6 or 7 dependencies when I installed it and only 2 packages were removed... I should'ave take peace of paper and write what I installed... Good ideas always come too late Sad

Are there any login options around that allow you to choose the window manager that you want to use? When you're logging in it's going to some other very simple window manager... there should be a way of selecting LXDE
Yeah, right, I select LXDE, then type login and password, press login button and end up with white xterm in upper left corner. Then I have to type startlxde to load it.

I've just confirmed that the kdm-small package is in the repos here:
Will try that now and post what I get.
Quote
1.) rename your kdmrc file to kdmrc.old
2.) create a new kdmrc with a text editor
3.) copy everything from the code below
4.) paste it into your new kdmrc and save it
5.) reboot -- just for fun
I did that and it returned Bela, but with ugly fonts... But login still fails(white xterm...).
BTW, is there something important in /usr/share/config folder beside logintheme? b/c as I said before, now it's completely empty...

I'm sorry that my "solutions" seem to be getting you into more trouble.
O, that's OK. The more trouble I get the more good stuff I learn Wink

Thanks in advance.

That was probably arts, a newer version of qt, and mysql that comes as a dependency when upgrading qt.
But really, it's best not to start messing up with other packages for now  Smiley

As for the space, I have deleted everything inside /home/ftp/pub/veclinux/packages several times without any problems, as these are just the downloaded tlz packages (whether or not they are actually installed) and it can save you space. But again, it's best to leave it for later and focus on the login manager.

The fonts can be made better by uncommenting this in kdmrc:
Code:
AntiAliasing=true

Everything there seems kde related to me, so it should be ok.

Quote

Ok, I'm out of my depth here, and wouldn't want you to bork your system even more...
My guess would be that when you installed then removed kdebase, a lot of stuff disappeared, maybe including stuff that was there even before you installed kdebase (perhaps as part of the kdm-small package?).
I would try reinstalling the kdm-small package as your login isn't right at the moment, but I'm just guessing here.
Hopefully somebody else can help more.

I made it! But now I think that the cost I payed isn't reasonable at all.
So, here comes the story:
I installed VL on the second comuter, and then copied all the stuff from /usr/share/config to the computer where I had problems with user picture. I looked once more through kdmrc and found that all users are displayed on the login screen, besides those, mentioned in HiddenUsers. I found HiddenUsers line, and somwhere around there I found that "The users will be shown in order they appear in /etc/passwd". I loked there and found that my user UID(6 digits) is much higher than any other, mentioned there. So I thought that's the problem. Not thinking a lot(that was dumb) I deleted my user name and created identical, but with lower UID.(Than I found that maximum UID is 65000 and could be changed in kdmrc)
I rebooted and found that the issue is gone!
Now I have a picture!
Login went fine, 'cause I placed all /user/share/config stuff on it's place and I was happy.
Unfortunatelly, not for a long time. My happiness dissapeared when I tryed to look through some of my files and found all /home/budulay folder completely empty. That was a hit. I am pretty sure ssh key is gone, either. No good.
But it's only my fault. Next time I'll be wiser.
Will mark topic [Solved]

One more positive thing - AntiAliasing=true did make it look much better. Cheesy
Thanks a lot to wcs.

Wow. Exchanging a login picture for a home folder doesn't seem a good deal.  Smiley
Good that some of it worked, at least.
