I have installed Ubuntu gnome. I restarted it and all went fine. The next day, when i tried to turn on my computer, it appeared the load session screen, and, once i have logged in, it just stayed like that. I mean: the screen says: User: Logged in correctly. That's all. I cant do anything, and when i press Esc, it shows: screen shoot. Yes, It's in spanish. This happens me often, but sometimes it doesn't. It seems like it has passed trough that, but suddenly it shows the same screen, but with the warning: Failed to load session "gnome".

Any ideas how to solve this?


I can't say how to resolve this but you may consider using lightdm. If you can't login using gdm, press Ctrl+Alt+F1 to switch to console mode.

Then install lightdm:

sudo apt-get install lightdm

Make it the default login manager:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm

Reboot your system:

sudo reboot
