    lxdm won't load any session other than lubuntu and openbox

    Hi all
    I tried to install and use xubuntu-desktop after installing lubuntu, but lxdm doesn't load it.
    I also tried loading lubuntu netbook session, but it also fails.
    When I select the problematic sessions, type username and password, the password field disappears for a moment and it just asks username again.

    thanks.

    Hi

    What release of Lubuntu do you have? how did you installed it?
    You installed xbuntu-desktop package, right?

    Oh, The Lubuntu is 11.10 version and was installed with USB.
    "Check disc for defects" menu didn't report any error.
    Xubuntu-desktop is installed now.
    I tried to use LightDM but it also has problem so can't use that.

    I just installed Lubuntu in my USB with Virtualbox (like installing on harddisk-I mounted iso file and USB on Virtual box) and there's also the problem so I guess it's not fault of installing procedure or my mishandling. It's running on the same computer and didn't tried on any other computer. My computer is VAIO VGN-FJ65L.

    Well, I didn't ask how to install Lubuntu on USB. What I meant was that I could reproduce my problem again.

    Re: lxdm won't load any session other than lubuntu and openbox

    Did you check: /usr/share/xsessions?

    For example: Lubuntu-Netbook.desktop
    It has:


    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    # The names/descriptions should really be better
    Name=Lubuntu Netbook
    Comment=Lubuntu Netbook - Lightweight X11 desktop environment based on LXDE
    Exec=/usr/bin/startlubuntu-netbook
    # Icon=
    Type=Application
    The line in red is very important.

    Could you please check that?


    I also found some useful info:

    Sorry for late reply. I've been quite busy these days.

    I guess the second link tells what was the problem.

    I'm still a little busy, so I just removed the spaces for now.

    I'll check it later and make a reply.

    Thank you very much!
