View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem with upgrade to 8.10

October 13th, 2008, 08:26 PM
My desktop wont display after I've logged in.

It perfectly displays the login dialog. but after I type in my info the screen changes to the slate pinkish brown color, doesnt play the intro theme and just sits there.

if I choose 'GNOME' as my session it will play the music and pick a background image and ask me for my wifi login over and over and over again without starting anything else apparently.

any helpful ideas will be very much appreciated

thanks in advance!

Several have had this problem when upgrading to 8.10. If it displays fine using the live CD, then it's an upgrade problem. I had to do an install to fix the problem. It was much faster than all the "quick fixes".
