Ciao!

I installed LL on 2 PCs, on the old one all is ok,
on the new one suddenly I can't no more log-in.

Every time that I insert the pwd the system seems to login, but after changing the background image as for connecting,
it return to the pwd request.

I'm sure that the pwd is correct because is the same as the older pc.

Now I'm as root.
when I try to start the 'User Settings' it is working in loop and the cursor is 'rolling'.
I tried to change/add the data for the user from Terminal but nohting...
New user appear in the list but I can't have access to my LL.


How can I do to resolve?
I'm not an expert user, so, pls, be very clear!

 :)

Thanks!

I am having this same issue. I updated Linux Lite and now when I try to login, the screen changes as if to reboot, then brings me back to the login screen. My password is correct. If I try it with a wrong password, I get the red "Password Incorrect" warning.

Is there a way to fix? My machine is currently unusable.

Thank you!

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460

At the GUI login instead of entering your password press three keys - CTRL and ALT and F2.

This should switch to a terminal login.

At the 'machinename login:' prompt type your normal username (this will be echoed) followed by return, then at the 'Password:' prompt type your normal password (not echoed) followed by return.

If you can't login in like this something has gone wrong with your login credentials which may or may not be fixable.

If you can log in to the terminal it proves the credentials are valid.  From the terminal try starting the GUI with the command 'startx' to see if it throws an error.

hi

This should take you to a terminal login screen.

Type your usual username (this will be echoed) followed by return at the'machinename login:' prompt, then your normal password (not echoed) followed by return at the 'Password:' prompt. turkish citizenship
