    Ubuntu 11.04 desktop not loading after login


    Recently, updated to 11.04. Yesterday I booted the system and found that after I login my Desktop does not come up.. The mouse indicator just continues to spins. I have observed if I wait about 5 minutes my screen saver will kick in. My setting is for 5 minutes. Once I cancel the screen saver Iḿ back to the mouse indicator circling continuously. At that point all I am able to do is restart and try again. None of the keyboard shortcuts seem to work when that situation exist.

    Your help is appreciated.

    I am running a Compaq Presario
    Dual boot
    2 GiB of Ram
    AMD Athlon XP 2000+

    G'Day sburrows; Did you do a clean install or an upgrade ?, I found it best to do a clean install, use Wubi if you can, it'll give you the Windows bootloader, I used easeuse partition manager to format the partition from W7 and have had no dramas at all, but the upgrade was a disaster.
    Hope this is helpful Miykel
