But just LightDM. It worked this morning, just does not seem to be working this evening. This seems to occurred after a shutdown after a wakeup from hibernation. I always get a password denied sort of thing:
I can login into Gnome by running this in the
tty (which I can access):
sudo service lightdm stop sudo service gdm start
and KDE as well (when installed), and using
sudo service kdm start instead of the latter command.
Xfce also works.
To resolve this I have tried:
~/.Xauthority- to no effect
- Changed password 5/6 times - may eventually get very annoyed and purge
/etc/passwdand restore from backups
- Reinstalled Unity and LightDM - no effect
- Purged and Reinstalled ALL Desktops and Desktop Managers
- reconfigured LigthDM with
dpkg-reconfigure- useless as it was done by the above and only sets the default desktop manager.
- Created a different user, that does not work - the same for the 'Guest Session'
- purged all recent installs
Here is `/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf:
[SeatDefaults] user-session=unity greeter-session=unity-greeter
And here is
/var/log/lightdm/x-0-greeter.log. This is from the recent login, where I tried to login with the user
test, and then my default login,
If anything more relevant to user/lightdm settings is available, ask and I'll post it.
All to no effect :-(
Using Ubuntu 13.10, Intel i5 Lenovo G570 (integrated graphics, with Radeon HD 6370M discrete graphics - but I don't think this is the problem) laptop.
I can still use the machine, I only really use it for work and stuff. I hope to solve this myself, but this will be useful if anyone can think of any ideas.
