View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unable to log in after installing 12.04

June 4th, 2012, 02:24 PM
Hi, I just installed 12.04 on my laptop (HP Pavilion dv6000) and now whenever I log in I just wind up with a blank screen & a cursor. If I hit the spacebar I can occasionally get my background image before it quickly wipes away to a new screen.

Does anyone know a fix for this?

boot into recovery mode to check for errors, specially unity-greeter (which can be change by lightdm-greeter inside lightdm.conf)
purging then reinstalling lightdm can help too.

Thanks for the reply!

How do you boot into recovery mode on 12.04?
I've tried following the instructions on the wiki (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/RecoveryMode) with no luck.

And then once I'm in how do I check for errors?

looks like a graphic card problem to me
