customizing your X login screen: (using xdm)[edit]

to set background color of root window (before login):

echo " /usr/X11R6/bin/xsetroot -solid black" > /etc/X11/xdm/Xsetup

instead of "black" you can use the colors defined in /etc/X11/rgb.txt

the login window itself can be customized in /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources

examples: (from Xresources)

Flash Player in Debian 64-bit with Iceweasel[edit]


echo "deb http://www.dipconsultants.com/debian etch main" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update
apt-get install markybob-keyring 
apt-get update
apt-get install ia32-libs-gtk nspluginwrapper


wget http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/current/install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
tar -zxf install_flash_player_9_linux.tar.gz
mv install_flash_player_9_linux/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/ 
nspluginwrapper -i ~/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so
nspluginwrapper -v -a -u

Followed this tutorial [1] and just changed "mv install_flash_player_9_linux/flashplayer-installer/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/" to "mv install_flash_player_9_linux/libflashplayer.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/". Everything worked fine and as expected, after the last step i also see "Update plugin /home/mutante/.mozilla/plugins/npwrapper.libflashplayer.so" but Youtube still doesnt work, says i dont have a flash player :( mutante 20:15, 25 February 2008 (CET)
