View Full Version : [xubuntu] Guest session does not work anymore

January 8th, 2009, 12:14 AM
I have launched guest session like told in another thread (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=967464), but it does not work anymore: only blank background appears and mouse cursor. Before removing openbox package guest session was an openbox session even if I launched it from Xfce session. How can I get guest session to work?

OS: Xubuntu 8.10 with additional sw source "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/xubuntu-dev/ubuntu intrepid main"

I got away from the blank guest session by pressing Ctrl-Alt-F1 Ctrl-Alt-F7 and typing my password in the screen lock. But I suppose the guest session was not quited properly that way:

$ mount | grep /tmp/guest-home.
none on /tmp/guest-home.J21824 type tmpfs (rw,mode=700)

Guest session works, if I change Default Session from "Run Xclient script" to "Xfce Session" in gdmsetup. (Applications > System > Login Window)
