View Full Version : [ubuntu] Not logging in? :\

August 8th, 2011, 01:38 AM
Hey guys.
I installed Ubuntu 10.10, and today, it's not letting me log in. I get to the login screen, but after I type in my username and password, it just sits there. If I load it in safe mode with the minimalistic graphics, it works. I did modify my init/default file today to add another resolution, but it's restarted since then.

Any help? I really need it :\

What do you mean "just sits there"? That's a broad description, but you might have broken something in compiz so it isn't loading unity/the desktop. If you can get a terminal the command "unity--reset" is supposed to fix that. If this doesn't help you'll need to describe the problem in a little more detail.

Alright, the login window disappears, showing just the wallpaper of the login screen, with a moveable cursor.
