    TTY Login

    I am unable to login to TTY 3, I get an incorrect password notification but I can login into my desktop with the same password.

    Re: TTY Login

    Check out your keymap configuration, perhaps it is wrong for the tty.
    Try entering your password when you're prompted for your username and see if the characters turn out right


    Changing the console font:
    Code:
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure console-setup

    And then choose the right layout there.
    You might have to reboot to take effect.

    using numlock? sometimes when switching to a TTY the led stays on but numlock is off, hit the key a few times to get the lled synced and in the right setting

    Re: TTY Login

    Any other TTY's work?
    I haven't searched why, but I can't login via TTY1 - although TTY3 works

    Re: TTY Login

    What exactly is the "incorrect password notification" that you're getting? is your home directory encrypted?

    AFAIK the only message you should get from a failed PAM login attempt is "Login incorrect", at least in my locale (i.e. it isn't specific about whether the password was incorrect, or the login account name). If you are getting a different message maybe that will give us some clues?

    Re: TTY Login

    type your password as your username and make sure it look right, maybe it is a keyboard setting issue
