View Full Version : Common causes of login errors?

June 25th, 2006, 02:39 PM

I'm trying to help someone (thread here (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=203350)) who is having trouble logging into KDE. They can't get past the KDM login screen.

I assumed it was the old .ICEauthority problem, but now I'm not so sure, as upon re-reading the problem I realise they can't access the failsafe terminal (I missed that info before).

So, I was wondering, for future reference, what are the other common causes of login problems that folks have come across?
