Logging in via the shell accessed through Ctrl+Alt-F1 and logging in as guest via the graphical user interface work 0O
When I try to log into my standard user account via the graphical interface, the screen flashes to black for a couple of seconds and bumps me back to a pristine login screen. Entering a wrong password for my user account yields the standard error message - my user account and credential verification seem to be OK.
I suppose that my individual graphics configuration causes problems ... I'm not sure how to reset that. I've tried stopping the UI via
sudo service lightdm stop
and restarted the UI
sudo service lightdm start
to no avail.
My workstation has a Nvidia GeForce 560-448 graphics card. I've tried getting this fixed with the latest Nvidia 64-bit drivers (cURL'ed from the official website), that is 295.49 and the latest beta driver 302.07.
Anybody have an idea how to get this fixed? Your help is appreciated :)
