Well I have installed Ubuntu 18.04 LTS lubuntu tty1. Was working fine for two days, but a problem now. When I try to login, the login page keeps on reappearing repeatedly without logging me in. Enlighten me on this.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  • If you have limited space in $HOME (your user directory), your gui login will fail - however text terminal does not. It won't impact an already logged in user until they logout & try to re-login. You can login via text terminal to check space (df or disk-free), but this is only one such cause (the most common for me anyway) – guiverc Sep 19 at 9:04
  • Yeah, that was my problem too. Thanks so much for the reply. – John Paneerselvam Sep 19 at 11:17

I had the same problem. How I fixed it was by clicking on the gear beside the "Sign In" button.

If it's an option, select "Ubuntu on Wayland". If it's not, well I don't know that much about Ubuntu. Sorry!

I hope this helps! 😊
