Ubuntu :: Right After #2 It Goes Black And Kicks Back To The Login Screen?

Apr 22, 2011

1st Problem:The problem that I am having is for Ubuntu 10.10. When logging in for some reason it will:1. Login and play the Ubuntu login sound.2. Will start loading the desktop and panels.Right after #2 it goes black and kicks back to the login screen. I am not sure what to do since it constantly does this. It renders the computer useless if I cannot get passed the login page. Yes the username and password are correct.2nd Problem:Before this 1st problem occurred this has also been a problem that has not went away.When I used to be able to login to the desktop I have just the panel on the top of the screen with the traditional Ubuntu "start menu", "system", etc. For some reason the right side which is the other half of the panel will not load. The only solution which fixes it while I am on the current session is to right click the panel and click Minimize/Expand button which toggles to center the panel on the top of the screen. Now when I click Expand its like the problem never happend, but this only fixes it for that session.

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 :: Login To Xfce The Screen Goes Black - Flickers A Few Times Then It Brings Back To The Login Screen

Apr 12, 2011

My last setup (years ago) ran fluxbox so because it was familiar I installed it as a secondary to xfce right off the bat. I download a lot of different stuff because I like to try out all the apps I can find but somewhere I broke something. I can still run fluxbox fine, but nither the Xubuntu nor Xfce sessions will run now. Last thing I remember changing was pulse audio(removed it for an experiment I was trying with jack audio), not sure if it is connected but when I try to login to xfce the screen goes black, flickers a few times then it brings me back to the login screen.

I tried failsafe but everytime I do my monitor gives me a "frequency out of range" error. I tried purging and reinstalling xubuntu desktop and xfce settings but I am thinking its my xorg config. My laptop is a Toshiba satellite M305D-s4830 with ATI Radeon 3100 mobile graphics card and I am running Xubuntu 10.10. Unfortunately I also broke the screen, so right now I am stuck with an external monitor till I get a new one.

Fedora :: Can't Login To F14 / Display Goes Black And Redirected Back To The Log In Screen?

Nov 3, 2010

So, I just installed Fedora yesterday. I have been trying out different Linux distros and Fedora was next after Ubuntu and SuSE failed severely. So, I installed F14 yesterday and everything has been great... until I tried to set my JAVA_HOME variable. I followed the instructions here.

After editing $ vi ~/.bash_profile as the site instructs, I proceeded to log-out and log back in...except I can't log back in. I have repeatedly gotten the login screen, selected my account, and entered my password. When I enter my password incorrectly, it says 'Validation Error' and that is not what is occurring. The display goes black for a couple of seconds and I am redirected back to the log in screen.

Fedora Hardware :: Black Screen \ Can Force A Shutdown, Login And Get The Same Black Screen?

Mar 6, 2010

I was messing around with the screen orientation and thought it would be funny to orient it sideways. Big mistake The screen went black.I can force a shutdown, login and I get the same black screen. I tried hooking up an external monitor and the monitor showed no input so I'm guessing my laptop doesn't have that capability with Fedora.This is my main computer.

OpenSUSE Install :: Login Screen Keeps Bouncing Back To Login Screen

Sep 17, 2010

I have installed VirtualBox and setup a Windows Vista host, initially with a .vdi of 10gb. That filled up quickly, so I added another 20gb secondary partition, after first trying to allocate a .vdi to a SCSI controller. Configured the drive in Windows (Computer Management), and all seemed ok. I shutdown VB, and rebooted my Linux host (openSuse 11.3). Now I keep bouncing back to the login screen, and can't login to Linux KDE, but can login to a console.I do have the following info:

/etc/fstab:
/dev/dis/by-id/ata-ST9250410ASG_5VG0B5VS-part5 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/dis/by-id/ata-ST9250410ASG_5VG0B5VS-part6 / ext4 acl,user_xattr 1 1

[code]....

I did see a message before, that I don't see anymore, that said it could not start NFS services due to missing entry in fstab. Another I'm seeing now is it couldn't start the avahi-daemon, no space left on device. This is odd, since I have a 200GB drive, with half of it left, only max 30GB set to VB. Here's my df -k output:

/dev/sda6 Use% is 100%
devtmpfs Use% is 1%
tmpfs Use% is 1%
/dev/sda7 Use% is 46%

So root "/" is mounted on /dev/sda6, which looks like it could be a problem, but why would this suddenly be a problem after working with VirtualBox? Could this be a matter of just freeing up space on /dev/sda6? Like the /tmp folder that's under "/"?

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

OpenSUSE Install :: Crash Back To Login Screen After Login?

Feb 3, 2010

The graphical login screen is loaded just fine. Though very shortly after (a moment after the loading screen could be seen) it crashes back to the graphical login. And that happens no matter what wm I'm trying - gnome, kde3, kde4, e16, e17, even twm.

It happened after the logout after a zypper up yesterday morning. Looking through the list of what packages were upgraded (two machines, both last zypper up'ed last Sunday, checked on the second one after the problem with the first one), the only packages which might be responsible are kwin or qt4.

The graphics card seems to be fine (NVidia 9600), as it happens whether or not I use nv or the propietary driver. Also tried reinstalling it from the repo as well as using the binary blob from NVidia. Has been tested on Windows and games are running fine there, so it shouldn't be the card.

What is strange, is that when calling upon sax2 -r from runlevel three, the initial screen loads nicely, but sax2 crashes back to the cli once one presses 'Change Configuration'. No error messages are being printed.

Any pointers on how I can narrow down the cause (and get it fixed)?

Packages:
OpenSuSE 11.2 + KDE 4 factory & enlightenment & qt 4.6 repos
X.Org 7.4-35.3
Kwin 4.3.98-406.6
libqt4 4.6.1+4.6.20100202-1.1

Ubuntu :: Got Black Screen After Suspend/switch Back From TV

Jul 8, 2011

I'm using Ubuntu 11.04 64bit. Mainboard Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2V. My LCD is a HDTV monitor which is plugged to onboard graphic card.

I don't know what happen with my Ubuntu. It sometimes goes black when I try to wake my PC when it's suspended previously. The screen is black, but I still can move mouse cursor. I also can do blindly click on stuff on screen (I could play a song last time by clicking randomly). This problem also happens sometimes when I switch back to PC from TV (My LCD is a HDTV monitor).

The only action I can do when it happened is reset my PC.

Fedora :: 13 - Screen Goes Black For A Few Seconds And Then Returns To The Login Screen

Mar 7, 2011

This problem started within the last few minutes. I run a program in my browser that uploads data from my machine (ubuntu) to another machine (Fedora 13), for manipulation and then spits back the data that does not match our standardised information.

When I tried to run it a few minutes ago, it seemed to take a long time to make the connection. I went back and checked the machine, everything was connected and fine. I decided to reboot the machine from within KDE and then try again. Same result. I went to the machine again and tried to login through KDE, the screen goes black for a few seconds and then returns me to the login screen. I switched over to a virtual terminal and was able to login using the same credentials. I checked the .xsessions-errors file and this is what I am seeing:

Red Hat :: Black Screen (power Saving) Is Not Coming Up On Login Screen?

Nov 24, 2008

I have a few machines set up and running Red Hat 4.1.2-42 in a computer lab. I also have a single test machine running the same version. The machines in the lab work flawlessly.However, when machines are on the login screen, they don't go into power saving mode. That is, after a certain amount of inactivity, the idle login screen should be replaced by a black power saving screen. But this does not happen. The monitor should go into standby (the little green light becomes orange, and the whole screen shuts down until you move your mouse again...you know the drill).I know this is supposed to be the case because this works on the test machine. It just doesn't work in the lab. I think it has something to do with gdm, but I can't for the life of me figure it out.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Screen Flashes Black Before Video Play Back With VLC (ATi)?

Aug 2, 2010

I'm experiencing a sudden black flash before video play back with VLC. The whole 3 screens just flash black and come back, and then the video plays fine in VLC. This doesn't happen with other media players, such as mPlayer and Totem.

I'm running an XFX Radeon 5450 (ATi) with the propriety 10.7 drivers. Running 3 17" (1280x1024) in "EyeFinity". I've had a look on the unofficial bug thingy for ati drivers for linux, and there is a bug back from 2008.[URL]...

Just wondering if anyone has any ideas, of tips to start looking to try and solve my little issue, I've spent hours and hours looking though xorg, syslog and other logs in /var/log/ and nothing seems to stand out.

OpenSUSE Install :: Screen Turns Black And Back To Normal After Installation Of 11.4

Mar 26, 2011

I had 11.3 running for quite some time without any problem. The upgrade to 11.4 was ruined for some reason (only got commandprompt login) and the message that Xorg.0.log couldn't be copied. Decided to install 11.4 from scratch, but since the install my screen flashes every 20 seconds or so to black screen and and after 1 second back to normal. There is no interruption of any other task like typing. Card: FeForce FX5200 card. Can someone please point me to a solution? Also, my monitor (Philips 150S) is not recognized. How can I change that without changing xorg.conf by hand?

Ubuntu :: Keeps Going Back To The Login Screen?

Feb 3, 2010

I did a clean install of xubuntu 9.10. I set up an account for my wife on it and now everytime I try to login under my own it keeps going back to the login screen. Sometimes twice last night I had to log in 4 times before it went to the desktop. I have played with some live CD's of ubuntu and xubuntu, but this is the first full install I have done. Before I set up the wife account, I could login first time. Should I try and reinstall and hope for the best or is there something in terminal that could be done?

Ubuntu :: Freezing With Flash - Screen Randomly Whited Out Fading In Splotches To Black And Then Back To White

Dec 18, 2010

I am having a problem. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 on a Sony Vaio FW series. It has Nvidia graphics that I don't think the OS is taking advantage of, whatever. It also came with 64-bit Windows, it's a 32-bit OS, and again, as far as I have been concerned, whatever. It's been functioning fine for the half a year since I installed it.

Until recently. My computer has been freezing. What happened first is that the screen randomly whited out, fading in splotches to black and then back to white. This freaked me out, but restarting seemed to smooth things out. Then windows in the OS wouldn't resize, then Flash videos would freeze the OS up, repeating the 2 seconds of sound it last played. Over and over again. In a loop. On a white screen. Sometimes with vertical stripes.

This all happens inconsistently, and whenever I restart it's fine again. I just want to know if there's a deeper issue so that I can resolve it. Otherwise I have been completely satisfied, as a previous Windows and OSX user who is computer-competent within a GUI.

Ubuntu :: Black Screen After Login - About 30-40% Of The Time

Feb 24, 2011

Ubuntu 9.10, x64. Around 30-40%of the time, after i login, I just get a totally black screen. If i leave it for a few minutes, nothing seems to happen. Whether or not i get login seems fairly random, and I don't notice if there is any common factor- This is always from a clean boot, and i could be on power, or not on power.This is on a HP 6730b, so the video should be a Intel GMA 4500.

Ubuntu Installation :: Nearly Black Screen After Login?

Jan 20, 2010

I tried to install Ubuntu 9.10 on one of them by default installation. For the moment there is only one user declared. The installation seems OK, except that Ubuntu didn't find my PPPoE connexion. When I logged in, I got a blank screen with the mouse cursor (it moved, but when I left or right-clicked nothing happened) and on the left something looking like two 1-pixel wide menus, as if the system had understood there were a dual screen. These menus could roll and unroll, and I think I even once managed to shutdown by going to the last invisible item thanks to the keyboard arrows (I'm not sure, because I had also clicked on ctrl+alt+suppr, so it could be a delayed effect of that).

I restarted the computer several times, to get no more than that. When I'm in Gnome safe, everything is OK but I don't have any root privilege there (I guess it's normal): for instance, I can't set up the internet connexion. My 20" 4/3 Philips screen is recognized. Then I changed the screen frequency: it's still OK for Gnome safe session, but now, in the Gnome normal session, instead of a black screen with 1-pixel wide menu, I get a black background picture with white light coming from above and reflecting to an otherwise invisible floor. The mouse cursor is moving, but this is the only thing which works.

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen Goes Black After Login

I just Installed Ubuntu on my PC (win XP-pro) using wubi, by downloading the .iso from webpage and burned it to cd. The installation went fine, but when I login the screen goes black. I can still see my mouse pointer and one vertical pixel line of the desktop. Could it be the graphics drivers, if so how can I update/change them, via rebooting in safe mode and using command line?

Ubuntu :: Lucid Black Screen After Login

May 4, 2010

I get a black screen (with tiny bits of white on opposite corners of the screen) every time after logging into Kubuntu Lucid AMD64. The only thing I can do is move my mouse pointer over that black screen which doesn't go away. I booted into recovery mode and with command prompt typed "startx" to start graphical mode. That resulted in the same black screen. Then I decided to reboot and install Fluxbox via the command prompt under recovery mode. Now, I'm able to view graphically under Fluxbox after selecting it over the default KDE and logging in. But how do I get regular KDE/Kubuntu to work again? I don't know what happened to make it stop working!

Installation :: Ubuntu Black Screen At Login / Fix It?

Jun 27, 2011

I just used a LiveCD to install Ubuntu 11.04 x64 on my HP desktop. I'm not sure what you need to troubleshoot. It has the following specs:

HP Pavilion Media Center m8539f PC
AMD Phenom X4 9550 QC Processor
5gb ram, 750 gb hdd
Came with vista home prem, nothing left of that except the old restore partition, which I have left intact. It had Windows XP installed recently, but that's completely erased. GeForce 9300GE Video Card

Anyway, I want the x64 so that I can have access to my RAM, among other things.

After installation with the LiveCD, it will come on, present me with generic/safe/etc boot options, and then when either safe or generic is chosen, it goes to an (active?) cursor for a few seconds before revving the HD, screen going black, and then... nothing. No indication it is even still powered at all except the light on front.
