View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 10.04 LTS log in screen no longer works

May 8th, 2010, 10:28 AM
I made a USBbootdisk and installed 10.04 the day the final release came out. I installed it, used this post install guide http://blog.thesilentnumber.me/2010/04/ubuntu-1004-post-install-guide-what-to.htm, and it has been working like a charm since then. When I went to log on to it today, the log in screen comes up as normal, I enter my password, ubuntu thinks about it for a minute, and then sends me right back to the log in screen.

I have an Asus EeePC 1005, dual booting Windows 7 Starter/Ubuntu 10.04

I just want to see if this is fixable before I wipe the partition and reload ubuntu.

Sorry - can't help, but i'm getting a similar issue... upgrade (via internet) from 8.04 to 10.04 - after restart i can't log in "authentication failure"... i've re-installed 10.04 from the Live CD but same again, after i click on my user name to log in -> enter my password (yes it's correct) -> "authentication failure" over and over!?!?!
