I added a quest user last evening to my Ubuntu 7.10 laptop. Immediately after I was unable to boot up to the login screen. Instead I get the following message.
The GDM user 'gdm' does not exist. Please correct GDM configuation and restart GDM.
Ok, I believe I have figured out what it is, but being a Linux user for 3 months I have no idea how to correct it. And with the new "Forum" configuation I do not know how to search the forum for assistance.
Somehow, some way, in my adding a new user, something happened to the gdm user. In a terminal window I checked users and only my user name shows up.
Now what? I have a remastered CD of my laptop software as of last month, will that help?
