Ubuntu :: Stuck In Login Screen?

Nov 21, 2010

I'm using ubuntu 10.04 and I recently tried installing certain python libraries. The installation of pyXML failed because python.h wasn't present. I thought I could solve this problem by reinstalling python. So I did:

Code:
sudo apt-get remove python
Unexpectedly, this command caused all kinds of other things to be uninstalled (like gnome)

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Stuck At Login Splash / AMD 5870

Oct 5, 2010

I just installed 10.04, 64-bit on a work computer that has an AMD 5870 GPU with the latest drivers from AMD (possibly relevant). I keep getting stuck on login at the Ubuntu logo with the five red dots beneath it. I can SSH into the machine from another machine, and I can hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete, which reboots after flashing some text.

I can also log in by amending Grub to remove the "quiet splash" and by hitting ctrl-X, but I can't get the X server to start from a text prompt. It generally gives me a blank screen after I type "startx," and I have to force-reset the computer. (I've been reading the forum for all the hints about how to fix this issue).

Interestingly, sometimes when I reboot I get a "...disk drives are being checked for errors..." message under the Ubuntu splash logo, and if I let this go to completion, I can log into the GUI without any problem. If I hit ctrl-C during the check, it won't log in.

So, right now I'm logged in to the GUI, but I'm afraid to reboot for fear of the dreaded red dots and no login.

Ubuntu :: Karmic Stuck Past Login Screen

Jan 29, 2010

I made a little change this morning on my karmic laptop, and now after it boots up and I enter my username/psswd, it remains perpetually stuck on the loading page that usually shows only for a couple of seconds. I never actually get to my desktop.

This morning, I thought I would try adding another panel to my Desktop, but I thought that if I added it with the position 'top', it would automatically pop underneath my default top panel. So I would have two panels one under the other, like you often do in firefox. I also immediately set my new panel on 'auto-hide'. Right after, the new panel showed up ABOVE my default panel (like z-axis, covering my default panel) and my screen was absolutely frozen. All my desktop icons disappeared and mouse clicks and keyboard strokes would do nothing.

I was forced to hit ctrl+alt+f3 and do a reboot. Ever since, I have been stuck in this mode. Perhaps if I could access the config file for desktop panels (if there is one), then I could try and revert my changes.

Ubuntu :: GUI Disappeared When Rebooted - Stuck In Login Screen With Nothing

Ubuntu Installation :: Get Stuck At Black Flickering Login Screen?

Mar 10, 2010

so i have been trying to install ubuntu for quite some time now and i have run into a bit of a roadblock.

I have tried to install 9.10 and it installs just fine (the GUI works just fine and everything seemingly goes ok), however when i go to boot it, i get to a flickering screen asking for my username and password (this is not the gnome login screen, it is just a blank black prompt asking for me to login). however, the flickering is inhibiting me from easily entering anything in from my keyboard. Thus, i cannot log in to fix the problem (i cannot enter my password because i dont know if the keys i am entering are being accepted or not). and recovery mode does the same thing.

This happens if i try installing it straight up, or if i install it inside windows. I have tried all kinds of boot options and install options (all that acpi crap) but none of it works.

i even tried installing some of my old copies of ubuntu (8.04), but when i do that the grub cannot load the linux kernel. I have also tried both the 64-bit and the 32-bit versions to no avail.

I am running an ASUS motherboard, AMD quad core x64, dual Nvidia geforce 8600's, 6 gigs of ram, and PLENTY of hard disk space.

I am not a noob to linux at all, but i have never encountered a problem like this and i have no clue how to fix it. Hell, i dont even know how to go about fixing it without logging in.

Debian Configuration :: Stuck At Screen Before Login

Aug 23, 2010

I'm new to the world of linux I've started using it just one week ago.I installed Debian Lenny without problem, and after 2 or 3 days managed to make my wifi and ATI card to work. Today I tried installing compiz, through the packet manager that comes with the system. It was downloaded and installed successfully, so I rebooted to see it effects (I guess) but after that, I wasn't able to get to the login screen anymore, it just gets stuck at the "gray" screen before that (I took a pic of what screen i'm talkin about). Then I accessed in console mode and removed all the compiz packages, tried dpkg-reconfigure gnome and gnome-core, then reinstalled the ati drivers, but the problem is still there.I don't want to reinstall the whole system, I don't think a simple problem like this is enough to do so, but sincerely I'm completly lost.

Ubuntu :: Gnome 3 Broke 11.04 - Stuck At Blue-white Login Screen

May 2, 2011

I did exactly this tutorial says [URL] But now my Ubuntu 11.04 is stuck at blue-white login screen. Only User Defined Session and Recovery Console options are available but they are not working as well. But when I did the Gnome 3 upgrading, it asked for me to remove unused packages and I said yes. About 20 packages removed. Do I need to reinstall my Ubuntu? Or can I get my old Gnome 2? (Not Unity, I didn't like it.)

Fedora :: Stuck In Infinite Loop On Login After Changing Wallpaper?

Aug 17, 2011

Fedora 15, fresh install.I changed the wallpaper from default to a solid colour. After switching between gradient to colour the system crashed logged me out and upon logging in it simply runs endlessly accessing my harddisk but never actually loading the desktop.I can kill X and reboot, but it's the same problem waiting for me on restart. I really don't want to re-install or delete users (to put it in context, I just spent 3 days trying to install Fedora because Anaconda doesn't know how to install GRUB correctly).

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 Install Stuck At Login?

Mar 10, 2010

In the process of installing 11.2 over 10.2 everything goes fine until I reach a login screen. There I provide my previously supplied username and password and the result is logon failed. I have tried the install several times. The result is always the same.Login also does not work from console. Some surfing has provided the suggestion that the old Grub may still exist on the machine. If so, how do I get rid of it?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unplanned Visits To Login Window - Taken To Login Screen Three Times

Aug 18, 2010

I have used Ubuntu since 7-4; I now have 10.4. However, in the last week I have been taken to the login screen three times. This could be potentially calamitous. Ctrl+Alt +Backspace have by default been disable since 9-4. There is no way I am pressing atl+Prtscr +K. I wonder if there is a new zap command in 10.4, and if so, how to disable it. I have never found the need to go back back to the login window. I am generally using the command line when doing this.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Login / After Couple Seconds Returned To The Login Splash Screen?

Oct 10, 2010

I recently powered up my netbook... Selected my user log in, entered my password, and after a couple seconds I briefly see what looks to be the console and am returned to the login splash screen... I can Ctrl+Alt+F2 to get to the console and log in... but that is as far as I can get. This is the case for Gnome, Remix, and Remix 2D.

I can sudo apt-get (update, upgrade, etc) as well. It is the right password because if I type in a wrong one it presents an authentication failure dialog box.

How can I fix my log in screen and get to my desktop? I am Currently running 10.04.... waiting to get 10.10

Ubuntu :: Slim Login Manager Preventing Computer From Booting To Login Screen

Aug 4, 2011

yesterday i installed slim login manager on my computer (eee pc 1018p, ubuntu 11.04), and now it cannot get passed the ubuntu loading screen (with orange dots underneath) when booting. i tried booting into recovery mode and that didn't work either. i also left the computer trying to boot overnight and that didn't work.
basically, during this loading screen that should eventually bring you to the login screen, i can alt+tab to see the progress of the load. the progress is stuck on

Is there anything I can do from grub to remove slim?or, is there any way I can access my ubuntu partition and save all my files?

Ubuntu :: Login - Enter My Password To Login The Screen Becomes Black And Return Me Again

Apr 15, 2011

I just bought this desktop from my friend and it runs win 7 and ubuntu 10.04. it worked very well the first two days until I changed the hostname of the system.

I did like: hostname myNewName

And everything worked fine. The problem now is when I start ubuntu and and reach username and password screen , I enter my password to login the screen becomes black and return me again to the screen where I put my password again. If I entered wrong password , the system message stating wrong password. On the other hand, when I try to run ubuntu from live-cd I can login easily and access my account.

My friend told me he removed Naultius package and reinstall it for some reason before he gave it to me. Note windows 7 is working properly.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10: Login In Just Brings Me Back To Login Screen?

Jun 5, 2010

I have just did an upgrade from 9.04 to 9.10. I am planning to go to 10.04 . After the upgrade everything was ok but I noticed the GRUB was still legacy. So I updated my GRUB to GRUB2. Now when I boot, after entering my logon-id and password, it just brings me back to the login-id screen (to logon on). Any indication of what is wrong and how I should fix this ?

I have no encryptions. [added comments] Currently reading thread about login loop bug with 9.10 Followed instructions about possible missing pre-release update but even if it did do updates, I am still login screen looping. Doing additional researches until someone answers with the fix.
did :
CTRL + ALT + F1 switch to one virtual console
sudo service gdm stop

Ubuntu :: Login But Almost Immediately Kicks Back To The Login Screen?

Sep 28, 2010

When I try to login with my username, the one I created when I installed the OS, it seems to try to login but almost immediately kicks back to the login screen. No authentication error it just seems to just logout? The only change I made since last successful login was to add ". .alias" to the .profile file - the only entries in the .alias file are comments and "alias" commands. I have one other username but it is not in the sudo's list of users so I can not change anything in the master login.

Ubuntu :: Freeze After Login In 10.10 (no Mouse Movement And Only Login Bg Visible)?

Feb 15, 2011

I installed xorg-edgers around the time the issue started, but I install and uninstall packages so often its hard to tell if this was the cause. Regardless, I ppa-purged the xorg-edgers ppa, reinstalled the proprietary nvidia drivers, and created a new user account, to no avail. I also wiped the /tmp directory, and reinstalled compiz, and tried dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg.

So far nothing has worked; I've checked out dmesg and /var/log/syslog, and nothing seems to be amiss, but admittedly I'm not sure what exactly to look for. I have a feeling its an issue with X being broken now, regardless of my attempts to downgrade, but I don't know how to go about correcting it.

Ubuntu Security :: Bad Login Protocols - Graphical Login For Gnome Sizes Itself To Accommodate A User's Exact Password Length

Dec 14, 2010

I'm seeing really bad user login format under a standard installation and am wondering why ubuntu does this as default. I have noticed that the graphical login for gnome sizes itself to accommodate a user's exact password length. This indicates to me that somewhere on the unencrypted part of a standard installation with user encryption contains at least some indication of the content of the password length which seems a security flaw even if not a complete hole, it majorly reduces the number of attempts a cracker would have to cycle through.

And that's assuming that *only* the length is contained. Furthermore it seems that it would be MUCH better to simply display the number of characters entered into the pw field and allowing the gui to expand itself from an fixed size as the field is filled out so the the user still receives visual feedback for entering characters. Either a simple character count display should be entered into the field or a 10 dot to new line so that one can visually quickly count the number enter by multiplying from a 10base graphical observation.

Ubuntu :: Run Application Before Gdm (login Screen Or Auto Login)

Feb 22, 2010

I have program that work like Fedora Firstboot it's run only one time after finish installation. I have two questions to ask.

1. How can I start this application before gdm start (login screen or auto login)

2. How can I start this application in fix display resolution (800x600)

My method now is

(This is a part of script , this script execute from /etc/init.d/myfirstboot , I create symlink to /etc/rc2.d/S1myfirstboot for start it before anything)

gdm-stop # first time I use /etc/init.d/gdm stop
DISPLAY=:1
export DISPLAY
/usr/bin/Xorg :1 &

[Code]...

I don't understand why first time firstboot start the system will auto loging in but not complete yet and then my script is start and it's work does not fine I think that is another user is already login , but if I re run my firstboot again and again (by setting something that can revoke my firstboot and restart) it's work before auto login and every things is ok!

Ubuntu Installation :: Gui Login Fails In 10.04 But TTY Login Works?

Jul 11, 2010

I installed 10.04 on my pc. I also have 9.08 and XP installed. Both work. The 10.04 gui login screen displays and asks for the password. I enter the password. The screen goes blank but after a few seconds the gui login box re appears and again asks for a login. I rebooted into the TTY, created a new user, checked the new user was in in /etc/passwd and that I could get into the new user's account. When I rebooted into the gui the new user was there and I entered the password but again I just got back to the gui login window. The pc I am using is at least 5 years old. I have tried startx and I do get the gui background but no controls are displayed. I am using 32 bit 10.04. Using the TTY I have uploaded all the current fixes.
