I have the same problem as of today, after an upgrade and reboot. I get stuck at a bright kubuntu logo. I can access the various non-graphic login screens using Ctrl-alt-F1 etc. I can boot if I select a much older kernel (3.2. something, as opposed to the default 3.13) but I expect this will create other problems. /etc/syslog and boot.log don't show ...

In my system the same thing happened in VirtualBox. Seems that the login window is no longer started automatically. I logged on via the command line. Do not know a permanent fix but in my case sudo lightdm popped up my login window and I could work again.

The /etc/init/cgroup.conf service file contained this in the pre-start script stanza: /usr/sbin/cgconfigparser -l $CGCONFIG So it was the cgroup service from the cgroup-bin package that actually set up your cgroup ...

I've been using Ubuntu since 2006. From 2005 to 2006 I exclusively used Kubuntu. Before that tried various other types of linux. I like the look and feel of Kubuntu, but I didn't like how often it would crash in the most unpredictable ways. Since then I've tried several KDE programs under Ubuntu, and time and again these KDE applications are visually ...

Well, there should be some hardware problem, but let's find what it is :) The first thing coming in mind is that the memory is broken. To verify that, during ubuntu live-cd boot you can choose memory test. In older versions that was just 'memtest' option, in the new ones you need to go to additional options by F6. If that is not a memory problem, then I ...

How might I log into the admin. account, and force the desktop to load properly?

Both actions are required for the hard drive to be accessible once you boot your Operating System. The commands you posted in your question should indeed set the drive to standby after you login or during the Ubuntu ...
