    Blank White Screen! Help!


    When I try to login to kde or gnome I just get a blank white screen. I am able to boot into the console. What should I do? I can't think of anything that I was doing beforehand that could've caused this.

    Which Linux Distro do you have? Was it working earlier?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Does Login Screen appear? Does GUI load on executing 'startx'?

    The login screen appears. I login. I get the kde or gnome startup screen with a white background. I also get the beryl startup logo. Then when it finishes loading the loading icons go away and I'm just left with a white screen.

    I booted from failsafe mode and tried to start the xserver from there by typing startx but it didn't work. It said "Could not init font path element unix/:-1, removing from list" then something like "x server is shutting down." Here is the log file

    I think beryl might be messing it up since now it is when the beryl logo appears that the screen goes white and I was messing around with some configurations in beryl last time I used my desktop. How can I disable/remove beryl from the console?
