View Full Version : [ubuntu] karmic login screen

December 8th, 2009, 03:42 PM
I sometimes had this problem before but it's been occurring more often after I had a fresh karmic install. The login in screen background loads and the sound comes but then the actual list of users and the place to put in the password doesn't load until sometime later, sometime around a minute.

I tried to fix this by enabling the auto-login option, but even if I didn't set a delay it still stay sat the login screen background for about the same time before it goes to the desktop.

Could this possibly have anything to do with the loader?
I mean it's a long shot but I've never had the problem before some updates and having the new -15 option, or maybe that was just by chance.

Before the default was:

"Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-genreic"

but after some updates it became

"Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-15-genreic"

It's not like problem that stops me from using ubuntu but I'd be really glad to get it fixed. And as a side question, what's difference between the two images?
