View Full Version : [ubuntu] Hardy freezes after login

August 2nd, 2009, 03:16 AM
Non-admin users freeze (blank screen) after login - whether from boot up or when switching accounts. So far I've only been able to reboot to get back in with my admin account. Initially, users could login just fine but started having problems after a few months. I don't know why the change.

I've searched other threads but can't find this particular problem - so hopefully I'm not being redundant.

Any advice on this one?

Could you try logging in with the console, and see if it gives you any strange feedback when you log in with a normal user?
Also look in /var/log/auth.log

With a freezing issue, normally I'd say check your processor fan for dust and run memtest from the GRUB menu. This being more of a user specific thing, I'm kind of stumped. Cleaning is still a good idea though.
