View Full Version : [lubuntu] Just upgraded to Narwhal, can't log in.

Before you say anything, I did read the upgrade/error sticky, and yes, I am new to Lubuntu.:wink:

The problem I'm having is this: I have Lubuntu installed on my EEEP 1005HAB. I just successfully upgraded to Naughty Narwhal and it is asking me for my username and password. They don't work. I type my name and password in exactly like I did every time I logged in before, and nothing happens, it just gives me a blank username box again.](*,) Any help will be greatly appreciated.

just curious, how can you create a new user if you can't login?

....I had a similar problem on a fresh install. I ended up letting ubiquity choose the username the 2nd time around.
