LL 1.0.8 login screen bug


There is a bug at Linux Lite 1.0.8 that I encountered when tried to login. It was keeping me at the login screen, something like a loop, even if the password was correct.

I found a solution for that: I changed the login manager from LightDM to GDM

* Go to a text terminal using Alt-Ctrl-F1.
* Stop LightDM with sudo stop lightdm.
* Start GDM with sudo start gdm.
* Run sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm to set the default display manager for GDM.
* Edit /etc/X11/default-display-manager and set it to /usr/sbin/gdm if you can't run the above.
* Restart your computer and login.
Maybe a bit late because of the version 2.0 being released by now but it's worth noticing.
