View Full Version : [kubuntu] Login restarts after successful login...

...ok, i log in at the standard Kubuntu login screen, then, after entering accurate credentials, one of two things happens, 1) the computer goes to a black screen where text can be inputted [but no commands], or 2) the computer goes back to the login screen. either way, i cannot access my computer visually. I've kept on restarting and restarting xserver, but this persists. any help much appreciated!!

Wherever you end up with this cycle press the Alt+Ctrl+F1 (or F2-F7 function keys)
That should open a tty for you that you can enter commands in. You can try "startx" Record any error messages and/or check the logfiles /var/log/dmesg; messages; xorg.0.log Paste relevent outputs back here.
