If you're sitting in front of a pool-computer you will see the login-manager first. You have to use the login-manager to log in the computer.

You can also set the environment after logging in, i.e. you can select the window manager or the session. This is possible via the menu item “Session”.

If you are over the quota the graphical login is not or only with errors possible. In this case you can either change to the local console using the keyboard shortcut “STRG + ALT + F2” (to return to the graphical mode use “STRG + ALT + F8”) or you use ssh to Connect to the virtuell Pool computer. You should immediately begin to clean up. you can find tipps under Quota.

user@client36 ~ $ echo "exec /usr/bin/i3" > .xsessionrc
  • short overview on the desktop environments
    • Gnome - easy to handle, especially for easy tasks einfach in der Handhabung, auf einfache Aufgaben konzentriert
    • KDE - quite similar to Windows. With a lot of design options, maybe a little bit overloaded with functions
    • Fluxbox - quite minimalistic, no start menu, everything works using the right mouse button or the keyboard
