I wanted to try the Pantheon DE on Ubuntu 18.04. I installed it based on this guide: https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-install-pantheon-desktop-on-ubuntu-18-04-linux-desktop

After the reboot I changed it to Pantheon desktop but I wasn't able to login. Black screen for a few seconds and after the sound of unsuccessful login it went back to the login screen.

Is there any solution for this?

Thanks

    Try changing the login screen to LightDM (which is used by elementary OS).

    Installed yes, but is it in use? Use "sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm" and select lightdm fron there, then reboot.

  • @dtravlos to change display manager, do sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm on a terminal window, then choose lightdm and reboot.
