    Linux 2009 powerpack acocunt login


    Dear all,

    Each time i try to login with username and password in the graphical mode, the OS asks me to login again in a vicious circle. After pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 I can login in text mode and typing startx I can acess the desktop. This is somehow awkward.
    I also tried to include a new account but it seems not to work. How can I sort this issue out?

    Kind regards

    Which Desktop Environment are you using? KDE or Gnome or something else?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
