Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

After the 13.04 update the login screen started to appear, even though I chose to automatically login in the Lubuntu install options one week ago.

Even if my password and username is correct it won't login, it will just come back to the login screen.

When I press ALT-CTRL-F1 at the login screen I am able to login perfectly, but I have no GUI and I'm kind of lost on that field.

WHat is going?Is it just a bug? Can I downgrade?I tried several forums with different solutions but none of them worked.

I had a similar problem with the Peppermint login screen. After logging in with ctrl-alt-F1, have you tried to start X:

startx

For me, that resulted in a blank screen, but then when I rebooted the login screen worked like it is supposed to. Another thing you might try instead of startx is:

sudo service lxdm start
