I've been tinkering with
fingerprint-gui as well as
xrandr resolution settings.
When I start my machine, it boots up normally. As soon as
gnome have finished starting, it logs me off automatically and brings me back to the
gdm login prompt with the user list. Then I am, however, able to log in using "Ubuntu Desktop Fail-safe".
I've checked the list of start-up applications, but everything seems fine there.
I can't yet put my finger on what exactly might be responsible for this:
gnome or some messed up
pam.d settings. So far I've checked
~/.xsession-errors. In addition, I don't quite seem to understand the "interplay" between X, GDM, GNOME, GNOME-policykit, PAM.d and all that.
Are there any other relevant log files that could point me to what's broken?
