I have a problem when trying to login to my Kubuntu 10.10. The login screen shows up, then I type my password, a blank screen is shown with my desktop background picture and then throws me back on the login screen.
if I choose to login from console, I can do that, and by typing
startx I can log in just fine but in the end I cannot shutdown the computer from the k menu nor will my settings remembered for the next time I log back.
I have my home directory mounted from a different partition but I tried to create a new user account and I could log in without any kind of problem.
The home directory is not encrypted, at least not to my knowledge.
Some log files:
