View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't login with new 8.10 install

March 31st, 2009, 10:19 PM
Just installed Intrepid on system with 512 RAM.

On boot up everything works fine. I get to the login screen and am able to hit CTRL + ALT + F1 to get into a fully working terminal.

The problem is, When I login (the regular way with GNOME), the screen turns a light orange with a mouse pointer and stops. It just sits there and does nothing, and am not able to get back into the terminal.

I used the terminal to install KDE and Xfce, got the same exact result with both of these as well.

I'm wondering if it is a screen resolution problem?

Any help is greatly appreciated! ;)

Try booting from a LiveCD and see if you get a normal desktop.

Tried that before I installed and got the same response.
