    Sorry for the delayed replies - work seems to be getting in the way.

    Just to confirm, this is from a brand new Xubuntu 12.04 install?

    Are you still getting the graphical glitch? If so, can you explain a little more about what it is? And what is the make and model of your computer and what video card do you have?

    Sorry for my delayed reply - I nodded off -

    Glitch on screen for all 4 users is approximately 2 cm wide x 2/3 cm deep horizontal white rectangle located in the top left hand corner about 2 cm from the top of screen and about 1/2 cm in from LHS of screen.

    I hope that helps - all the best - I think I have just missed you again.

    And yes, this a brand new 12.04.1 installation other than the /home partition which has been used for about the last 1 1/2 years (I think) ie for 11.10 Ubuntu and Gnome Shell and Xubuntu and Xfce but I am stretching my memory. Refer lower down the page for info about recent alterations to partitions.

    I have been seriously thinking of not formatting /home and as a result may have a very fresh install, albeit requiring quite a lot of work with Bookmarks etc. What do you think ?

    And then there was the implementation of this thread -
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2103648 - when I removed /var, /tmp and /var partitions. Guest can't run Gparted so I can't show what the partitions look like now.

    An alternative -
    Code:
    guest-fgeTFT@ABC:~$ df -h
    Filesystem      Size  Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda1       9.2G  3.0G  5.8G  35% /
    udev            1.9G  4.0K  1.9G   1% /dev
    tmpfs           775M  872K  774M   1% /run
    none            5.0M     0  5.0M   0% /run/lock
    none            1.9G   88K  1.9G   1% /run/shm
    /dev/sda2       463M   59M  381M  14% /boot
    /dev/sda6       735G  337G  362G  49% /home
    none            1.9G   27M  1.9G   2% /tmp/guest-fgeTFT
    guest-fgeTFT@ABC:~$
    With it's enlarged excess of partitions, Xubuntu and xfce ran very well for many months. Not sure where swap is - maybe doesn't show up with that command ?

    Did all 4 users have pre-existing home directories?

    You can view info about the swap file with this command:
    Code:
    swapon -s

    As far as I understand it, Initially after setting up one Account, I would add 3 other users.

    Code:
    guest-mvrjqn@ABC:~$ swapon -s
    Filename                Type        Size    Used    Priority
    /dev/sda5                               partition    7813116    0    -1
    guest-mvrjqn@ABC:~$

    Try creating a new account that doesn't have a previous /home directory. See if it works for this account.

    I'm not sure how to do this - I usually would use users/groups to create a new user. How do I avoid having a previous home directory ?
    Sorry that I'm not real bright Toz.

    No thats right. Just create a new account using the users/groups application then try to login as that user. But just login, don't copy any files over just yet. Lets see if a new user can login and get a desktop.

    Yes, using user/groups I was able to set up another account which worked with no distortion. I'm on it now.

    Edit - I assume this will work out with me copying backed up user files into new users and then eventually deleting original accounts.

    Re: Only Logs Into Guest After Fresh Install Of Xubuntu 12.04.

    It must be something in the configuration files of the /home directory that you are "keeping". You could try, from the Ctrl+Alt+F1 console screen to rename the existing $HOME/.config/xfce4 directory:
    Code:
    mv $HOME/.config/xfce4 $HOME/.config/xfce4.BAK
    ...but keep in mind that this will reset xfce and you will lose all of your existing Xfce customizations.
