Hello to all (K)Ubuntu users,
I installed Kubuntu 10.10 after it's release. (I used to use ubuntu, I want to try kubuntu now)

Now I can't login in Kubuntu:
When(/if) I login with my username and password, KDE loads(I mean the splashscreen),
but if it's ready nearly, the screen becomes dark and I'm back in the login-manager.

I tried many things:
With a new user or
with installing gdm or
install it new (two times!)

Thank you for helping

PS: Ubuntu works normal

EDIT: The text-console-mode(or however it's named in english) isn't working at all,seems like a graphics bug or something similiar.
And there aren't very many (hidden) ".folders", just .kde .config .dbus .fontconfig and some ".files".


Try removing the kde configurations for the user by moving the .kde directory in the users home directory to a different name and see if you can then log in.

Often these problems are incompatibilities or something that is reminiscent from a crash that causes such problems.

  • Thank you for your suggestion, I've tried it but it doesn't work. It's ordinary that in the home folder not many ".folders" are, after a fresh install and before a (successful) login? – Daniel Oct 14 '10 at 13:05

I hope that you have this sorted out by now as October 14th was awhile ago. I would install another desktop environment or exit to a command prompt from the login screen using Session manager. Login but from the command line. Then I would do an update and install any upgrades.

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade startx

Sometimes in an upgrade not everything gets installed properly and you get a partial upgrade. Strange things like this can happen. A full upgrade usually sorts it out.

  • Unfortunely it doesn't work. – Daniel Nov 7 '10 at 10:22
