Ubuntu :: Unable To And The Screen Flickers A Bit And Shows The Login Screen

May 31, 2011

I'm having a bit of an issue. I was transferring some files from an external hard drive onto my desktop computer running ubuntu 10.04...It filled up the hard drive to the max, rebooted and I couldn't login. Did some googling and thought it might be because it was too full so I plugged the ubuntu HDD into my laptop, removed some files and tried again. Still no luck.

What it does is tries to automatically login (that's how I have it set) at the main login prompt, it for some reason is not able to and the screen flickers a bit and shows the login screen. I enter my username and password and it flickers really quick and goes back to the login screen. Does this for my other user account as well. I can login via the command prompt (ctl-alt-f7) and do stuff there, but I cannot login to the GUI.

Ubuntu :: Got A Brown Screen On Login Xubuntu 11.04?

May 19, 2011

I just installed Xubuntu 11.04 and all of a sudden I got a brown screen when I logged in that made my desktop unvisible (everything else worked fine). After a while I understood it was a problem with nautilus which I installed because I thought I needed to for Dropbox. So this is what I did and it worked:

sudo apt-get purge nautilus

Ubuntu :: Crashes Randomly To Login Screen?

Nov 22, 2010

I upgraded 10.04 to 10.10 (32bit), the upgrade process didn't go that well because first it didn't boot beyond GRUB. Solved this by unplugging my keyboard (my ubuntu is a server machine without keyboard or mouse, I like to use the desktop version through vnc). After that is booted to shell, which was not so nice either. This time it was the legendary nouveau driver which sorry for my language I will never install again (caused major problem twice already). Installed nvidia drivers and got a display for X this time and it booted nicely to login screen.

My problems have arised since the upgrade, the system will randomly "crash" and go straight to login screen, ending my current session. Sometimes my mouse cursor even changes to the X-mark. I can't see anything in gdm, x11, syslog etc. that would explain the crash. So far I've found best log from .xsession-errors which is here:


I got a lot IPv6 errors on the same log too, but those were caused by utorrent+too old wine. Didn't remember that upgrade deletes/disables extra-repos and I was running the stable wine (1.2.1) instead of the latest one (1.3.7). Upgrading wine solved the error from utorrent IPv6 connections.

So any ideas what I could do to fix these crashes? I'm not so much into clean re-install because of all the configuration I'll need to do then. I do have home on a separate partition but there's lots of software to install and configure.

Ubuntu :: Xubuntu Fails To Load Login Screen?

Jun 6, 2010

I've been running xubuntu for a few weeks now, but just today I began having a few problems. When I boot my computer, it simply freezes at the xubuntu logo just before the login screen.

The last thing I remember doing before this is typing export DISPLAY=:0.0 in the tty1 terminal.

Ubuntu Installation :: Xubuntu 10.04 - Login Screen Won't Let Type Password

May 2, 2010

I installed Xubuntu 10.04 on my Dell laptop earlier, and all went well until I tried to finally login. A dull black screen is presented (I don't know if that's normal; I expected a pleasant splash screen haha). As a windows user, I can only explain it as looking like a command prompt. The first line asks me for my login (which is my first name). I type it in, press enter, and then it asks me for my password. The problem is, no matter what I press, nothing happens after that.

General :: Logging In Sends Back To Xubuntu Login Screen?

Feb 17, 2010

When I start up my computer Xubuntu is asking me to login (which is strange as I have login disabled). Then, when I do enter my password, it is accepted and after a few screen changes I am returned to the login screen. (I know the password is correct as the login screen informs you immediately if you enter it incorrectly.) Also, I can see that my display settings have been changed--the monitor resolution is wrong--my cursor is way big as are buttons, text etc..

General :: GRUB Xubuntu Boot - Instead Of Reaching The Login Screen?

May 24, 2010

I had been using Xubuntu 9.10 successfully for some time. Recently, however, I tried to boot Xubuntu, and instead of reaching the login screen, a "GRUB" interface appeared. The title was "GNU GRUB VERSION 1.97~beta4"

Below that, there were a few instructions describing the use of the Tab key and a blank command line interface beginning with "sh:grub7". Before this started occurring, my computer would turn on and then display a menu to choose the OS. If I selected Xubuntu, a few lines would flash by, and the login screen would appear. My computer is a Dell XPS M1530 laptop. The operating systems installed are Windows Vista Ultimate and Xubuntu 9.10. The Xubuntu was installed using a Wubi installation.

As far as I remember, I did not make any changes that may have caused this. The only significant event that did occur was a power outage, but my computer was not plugged in nor on at this time.

If everything works normally, how would I boot Wubi Xubuntu from the GRUB interface? Are there any other solutions to this problem?

Ubuntu :: Login Screen Gone But Boot Splash Shows?

Jan 11, 2010

I don't know what caused it, but as I boot into Ubuntu (9.10), the login screen never appears. Boot splash shows,then the cursor shows up but never the login screen. I haven't found anything that will reset the default gdm or login screen that works.

Ubuntu :: Plymouth Displays For About 1-2 Seconds Then Shows Login Screen?

Oct 28, 2010

Well this problem has been here since Lucid. When I start up my computer and select Ubuntu, I get a blinking underscore for about most of the start up time for Ubuntu. Then It quickly shows the nice Ubuntu Loading Screen (Plymouth) for about two seconds, then it gets to the login screen. I am using the Open Source ATI drivers, I believe the open drivers are called "radeon".

SUSE :: Transparency In LXDE Also Shows The Login Screen Background

Nov 29, 2010

So I have installed LXDE on my SuSE install to have a addition to the GNOME desktop. The installation went fine (of course). But I'm now faced with a problem with the transparency in LXDE, I have a box around my cairo-dock with a piece of my login screen background (looks like the well-known black-box bug. See Screen shot). This is a bit strange and I've been looking at the solutions for the black-box bug since I've had it before, but have not found a way to sort this yetv(though i have found many solutions for the black-box bug itself).

But, not only is this box around cairo-dock, the rest of the transparency in LXDE also shows the login screen background. See screen shot. Screen shot: [URL] As you can see, i haven't had time to work on the eye-candy yet.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Graphics - (login?) Screen Just Shows Rolling Display Like An Out-of-tune Analogue TV

Jul 2, 2010

I tried installing 10.04 via Wubi on a friend's notebook and have hit problems with the display. The installation seemed to proceed OK (took ages to download / install - left it running overnight) until it came to boot to Ubuntu. The GRUB menu appears OK, but choosing Ubuntu leads to a blank screen with some icons at the bottom, which is displayed for a few seconds, then the (login?) screen just shows rolling display, like an out-of-tune analogue TV. I suspect that I need a graphics driver or something? The notebook is a logiQ notebook, with 128MB SiS Mirage-3 graphics.

Software :: Xubuntu Programs Randomly Closing

Nov 27, 2010

I'm running Xubuntu 10.10 via USB on a Dell Latitude D505.Wireless card is a Netgear WPN111 and I'm using ndiswrapper to make it work.

My problem is this:when I open any web browser and try to navigate to a page, the whole system freezes for a few min before crashing to desktop.Using Task Manager during this time reveals that processor usage jumps to 100% and stays there until the program closes.I've tried Xubuntu on another, faster machine and it was fine.
From this I conclude that it's related to the hardware, and I think it may be some hardware protection feature operating.

Ubuntu :: Xubuntu On USB Shows Root Drive Twice?

Dec 18, 2010

I finally got Xubuntu 10.10 working on an USB thumb drive. Everything is working fine. One thing is bugging me though...The filesystem / (root) drive is shown twice on the desktop.One icon is the normal hdd icon for the root system (which you have on every Xubuntu system by default) but the second one is labeled as "removable drive ?3G?" and has the removable usb drive icon.Both of them point to the root drive.

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 :: Shows Login Seems To Be Right - But It Doesn't Login Normally ?

Nov 21, 2010

I just added "export PATH=.:'printevn PATH'" to ~/.bashrc, then i can't use any commands, like "vim" or 'ls', it shows 'command not found'.

I cound't figure it out why. Then I logged out and tried to login. Another more serious problem occurred. after I type in login id and pass, it shows login seems to be right, but it doesn't login normally, but immediately bring me back to the login dialog box, and ask me to type log info again. I tried many times, it just constantly brought me back to the login page.

My system: Xubuntu 10.04LTS This is only a minor problem because it is easy to just close it after it opens, but it is mildly annoying.

OpenSUSE :: Dual Monitor - Nvidia Driver With X Screen - Shows A Black Screen

Feb 5, 2011

I have openSUSE 11.3 with an nvidia card connected with two monitors. In the past I used xinerama which was ok, but now I need to have two separate desktops, one on each screen. I set the nvidia driver with x screen, and now one screen works perfect and the other only shows a black screen. When I move the mouse over the black screen, the mouse pointer turns into an X, but moves correctly, which seems to me that the problem is that I need to set the second desktop to that screen. I looked on forums on how to do so, and no luck.

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:

/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


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 "/"?
