    Red face Installed Kubuntu from Lucid, rebooted but can't login

    After Kubuntu install completed, was supposed to log out/options - but no options available. Had to reboot.
    Kubuntu started, but won't accept my previous login name & password. I am stuck in limbo!
    Would appreciate any suggestions on solving this.

    I've heard about this, but I only hear that people reinstall to fix the problem which I know you don't want to hear as well.

    You could also go into recovery mode as well and fix it there.

    Wow. I would have to agree with the reinstall bit but it might be safer to install on a new partition to save any data that you may have had from before.
