View Full Version : Login and graphics problems.

February 26th, 2010, 07:02 PM
Hi, I just upgraded to 10.04 alpha 3 and I am having a few problems. The first one is whenever I login it goes to black screen with a few blocks of colour, then returns me to login again. The second time I try it works fine.

Also the volume icon is a blank one as is the firefox shortcut in the top bar. ANd then to top it off my grpahics dirver in installed but not in use.

I guess I will have to create an iso and do a clean install but if anybody know how to fix these problems I would be very grateful.

I'm having exactly the same issue, I also have to login twice with gdm before it lets me in.

Same here as well, except I don't get the blocks of colour.

I sometimes get an empty VT rather than VT-7 (the X display).

I don't seem to be able to scrape up any data regarding this problem so I'm not sure of the value of submitting such an incomplete bug report. I know that Scott James Remnant is working on Plymouth and VTs at the moment.

GDM crashing on the first action but working when you try a second time is a bug report, you can find it at https://launchpad.net/bugs/522692.
