    Only Logs Into Guest After Fresh Install Of Xubuntu 12.04.

    Hi all,

    I have searched about issue but can't understand some of the solutions, so will describe the problem as best as I can. Fresh install, when logging into user the normal screen appears with a graphic glitch in the top corner. Mouse OK but there is no top panel at all.
    No Bottom Panel either. However Guest can be logged onto O.K.

    It would be very much appreciated that with any possible solution, that you spell out any commands in simple terms as my knowledge is limited.

    Cheers -

    Edit - I was able to perform full downloads via guest.

    Maybe a corrupt cache?

    Try logging out, going to the first tty (Ctrl+Alt+F1), logging into the console as normal user, then:
    Code:
    cd ~/.cache
    rm -rf sessions
    Then go back to GUI login (Ctrl+Alt+F7) and try logging in as normal user again.

    If it still doesn't work, there may be some hints in the normal user's ~/.xsession-errors file.

    Thanks Toz,

    I will certainly do that but I thought I would add info - I was able to set up all 4 users (admin) and the problem exists for each account.

    I will now do as you say - thanks -

    I'm probably doing it wrong - all I get

    First command - invalid option

    Code:
    cd:usage: cd [-L|[-P[-e]]][dir]
    The second command returns nothing - don't know if I'm entering it incorrectly.

    Edit : Would this problem have resulted from the fact that my previous installation consisted of Unity 12.04.1 plus Gnome Shell with Xubuntu 12.04 and xfce 4.1 being installed on top ?

    Seriously thinking of a completely fresh installation of xubuntu 12.04 (formatting /home) and starting again (copying bookmarks,videos, etc) I only want one version.

    Looks like you are typing it in incorrectly. Try this version:
    Code:
    cd $HOME/.cache
    rm -rf sessions

    As far as I can tell -

    Code:
    cd $HOME/.cache
    ~/.cache$rm -rf sessions
    ~/.cache$
    Thers's something I am just not getting -

    Hi Toz,

    I only realized a short time ago that I had copied 12.04 and not 12.04.1
    Would that make any difference ?

    Actually, that worked. Now try logging in again as a normal user. Does it work? If it doesn't, while still logged in as the normal user, go back to Ctry-Alt-F1, run this command, and post back the link that is generated:
    Code:
    pastebinit $HOME/.xsession-errors

    It shouldn't.

    Hi Toz,

    Sorry for the delay - As I knew it was early morning where you are, I thought I would experiment. I reinstalled ubuntu 12.04.1 so I could burn another Xubuntu 12.04.1 Disk.

    When I installed it, exactly the same problems occurred. Do you wish me to do the pastebinit command, or do you wish me to repeat the earlier ones.

    In the meantime I will download the updates.

    Cheers and thanks -

    Edit - Repeated the commands in #5 with exactly the same results.
    Will now go ahead with pastebinit command.
