View Full Version : [ubuntu] XFCE not logging in

April 11th, 2009, 06:31 PM
I installed xfce and was pretty happy with it, when one day, I log on and nothing happens. Just a light blue screen comes up, not loading anything, and the desktop doesn't show.

I tried and deleted xfce and xfce4-session from the ~/.config directory, so that they get created and set to defaults the next time I log in. But it still won't work.

Then I created another user, and it was logging in fine.

My user is still not logging in xfce. Can anyone help?

I am using Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid.

Are you using a login splash? when I did this, it crashed and I couldn't log in. If so, post back and I'll guide you through removing the splash (not in /.config - that's GNOME btw - I think).
