OK.  So instead of seeing a 'Welcome to Linux Lite' screen like this after logging in



you see a black window.
Did you get a similar problem when running the desktop from the Live media ?

Could the cause be that there is not enough RAM to load everything?
Difficult to tell, but if windows don't display properly, using the system will be difficult.
Do other any other software applications show problems.

How can I prevent the frame from appearing?
If you move your mouse over the black frame and the pointer changes shape from an arrow to a clickable pointer as you pass over the button areas you can try to disable it by using the image above and moving the cursor so that would be over the text 'Show this dialog on startup' (near the 'Close' button).
When the pointer changes shape left click just once.  This should remove the tick and stop the Welcome screen on later log ins.

If that doesn't work, let us know and we can try another method.

I installed Linux Lite 6.6 on an old iMac that is about 15 years old, just for fun and Linux Lite runs great on it. I used the entire hard drive. When booting I get the normal order: spinning wheel, mouse, and toolbar and then the welcome box that stays black;  I can remove the frame via the top right corner without any problems. Could the cause be that there is not enough RAM to load everything?  How can I prevent the frame from appearing?
ths.

can i solve it ? Sorry for my English
Not a problem, we can try to help you.  Please provide a little more information.

For example:-
Quote
Ijust installed linux lite
Can you confirm the version of Linux Lite you are trying to use is 6.6 ?
How old is your computer ?
Do you know if it has BIOS or UEFI ?
If it had Windows when new, do you know what version it had ?

At the 'Installation type' option screen, which of the options did you choose ?
  i Install alongside an existing OS
 ii Erase disk and install
iii Something else

Did the installation process complete all the way to the end where it asks you to remove the media and press enter ?

Quote
i like it verry much
Have you previously used an earlier version of Linux Lite on the same computer or just tried a 'Live' version ?

each time i boot i get a black linux lite screen
At which point in the boot up is this ?

The boot sequence of a stand alone system would be something like this.
Computer bootstrap messages
Alternate black/dark screens ending with a dark screen with a slowly rotating timer icon
The timer icon switches to rotating faster
Alternate black/dark screens ending with a dark screen
Mouse pointer appears on dark screen.
Linux Lite login screen with computer name, date, time, locale and a power icon across the top
If the password is entered the system proceeds to the desktop.  There may be odd displays before the final desktop appears.

Can you indicate how far along this path your system gets before the problem ?
Or if your computer boots differently, describe the boot up sequence so we can work out where it stops.

Is your system totally locked up at this black linux lite screen ?
If your keyboard has numberlock, capslock indicators do they toggle when you press the lock keys ?
