Well, not sure how I did it, but for some reason I am unable to get past the login screen on Xfce. What's odd is that I had set the machine up (from install) to login automatically. Then when I finish rebooting after installing
sudo apt-get install openssh-server
sudo apt-get install vnc4server
all the sudden I am getting prompted for my password. I proceed to type my password (successfully might I add) to login, the screen goes black for a second, then brings me right back to the same password prompt. I am able ssh in(now), but I get no love from workstation login. Maybe vnc4server is the culprit?
What did I do? And can I fix it?
The guest account, however will let me login no problem. What gives? I have a sneaking feeling that this could be permission issue.
Also, I did find this form (the exact same setup as I have with same symptoms), makes mention of the
.Xauthority file needing to be delete. I don't mind trying things, but deleting stuff scares me a bit.
