View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 12.10 not logging into correct session

January 18th, 2013, 07:05 PM
I had my system working correctly but since the last updates I am having trouble with my session not working correctly.

If I log into Ubuntu default session and reboot it logs back into Ubuntu default session. But if I log into a Cinnamon session and reboot, it dumps me into a low video session of Gnome. If I log out and log back into Cinnamon everything is fine until I reboot.

I changed lightdm.conf to have: user-session=cinnamon
but that seems to have no effect.

I also purged Cinnamon and reinstalled it, but that doesn't fix it.

Help is much appreciated.

I was getting video tearing, so I ended up installing NVidia drivers manually from NVidia and that fixed the session issue as it rebuilt the xorg.conf file.
