    Blank screen after logging in.

    Hello,

    I just installed Ubuntu for the first time on an Emachine. When I turn it on I get a login screen, however, once I log in I get nothing. Any advice how I can fix this?

    Hi and welcome, could you give us some system specs? You may try and boot into recovery mode which is usually the second choice from the grub. Then use the xfix option which hopefully will correct the graphics issue.

    Re: Blank screen after logging in.

    I let the computer set over night and I now have a desktop loaded with an error. However, I will list my specs... Emachine T2698 with a 2600+ AMD, 512 RAM, and a nVidia graphics card. Yesterday I had been reading about issues with Linux and the nVidia card and I attempted what it says on this site, I don't know if it worked though http://www.pendrivelinux.com/2007/02...n-ubuntu-edgy/.
    As for the error,

    "The panel encountered a problem while loading "OAFIID:GNOME_FastUserSwitchApplet". Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?"

    Options I have is Don't Delete and Delete, I am just going to leave that window up for now.

    Thank you for your help!

    One other thing, it is really really slow which is maybe why it took over half an hour for it to load gnome?
