Infinite login at start
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 3, 2009
Hi everyone, I hope you can help me with this, i don't know what to do:
When I turn the computer on, after a "video mode error", I introduce my user and password, it gets back to this login screen to infinity.
Before having this problem I was changing some settings in Wine (to run Heroes3 correctly) and I installed a startup manager application.
Now I cannot run through the Live CD 'cause it's not recognizing it.
Please some help with this!!

Login start problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 2, 2014
After years of no problems with my Ubuntu 12.04, today my laptop began experiencing the following problem. When I get to the login screen, it apparently freezes. Regardless, I type my password and hit Enter. Nothing happens. I wait like a couple of minutes, and suddenly the password shows in the box (I mean, the dots representing the password) and the machine resumes the login process and operates normally. How do I troubleshoot this problem? Your help is appreciated.
Here's some info about my machine:
Experiencing Infinite Login Loop After Ubuntu Update
location: linuxexchange.com - date: March 13, 2015
Yesterday, following an update and subsequent reboot, I am no longer able to login. The system boots fine, but instead of logging me in automatically, I'm taken to the login screen. I enter my password, but all that happens is that the screen goes blank for a moment and I'm taken right back to the login screen with no explanation. I have no problem logging in as a guest, but otherwise I can do no work except through the command line.
I've tried fixing the problem in recovery mode through the Grub menu. If I try to use failsafeX mode, I get a screen that says "The system is running in low-graphics mode. Your screen, graphics card, and input device settings could not be detected correctly. You will need to configure these yourself." However, when I hit OK, I'm taken to a menu screen where I can't traverse the menu.
I want to assure you that THIS IS (PROBABLY) NOT A DUPLICATE! I have spent the last day checking countless forums and trying dozens of suggested solutions to a similar probl
[SOLVED] Start tmux on Login with 256 colors
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 5, 2013
I'm currently running Ubuntu 12.04 and had that idea starting tmux on every shell login...with 256 colors.
Unfortunately,...while browsing different forums, blogs, stackoverflow...I got completely lost. Depending on where I put the following commands in my .bashrc I can either have the 256 colors OR tmux on login.
stop lubuntu login screen to auto start
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 21, 2012
there is one desktop in my office that is dual boot running ubuntu v.10 and ms-os (boot to grub). since last week, in my spare time, I try to fix it. the ms-os is infected by virus (what a surprise), because a co-worker bring her children to work and they installed any random games that internet can offer. obviously it got infected. so i wipe out that lame os.
but than i update ubuntu to kernel 3.2 and sudo apt-get install lubuntu, because unity reduce productive for office duty.
this is the first time i use lubuntu, so i know a little in how to configure it...
for example, every time i login, i got bombarded by unnecessary error pop-up along with request to report it. how to stop this auto report? the error is not that important, since after i close the report request, lubuntu just running fine.
i figure disabling as much as possible start-up service perhaps will solve the problem. mainmenu >preferences > desktop session setting offer less option than gnome-desktop start-up
Code to start XAMPP at login. Will this work?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 9, 2011
I've got XAMPP installed on Lucid Desktop edition in VirtualBox and all works well.
But, one has to start XAMPP after login with
sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start
I browsed for solutions and found one simple suggestion which entails placing the startup code in the the /etc/init.d/rc.local file after the " #! /bin/sh " line.
The code being " /opt/lampp/lampp start "
Is it safe to place that code in the rc.local file? If so, should it be in any particular line?
Howto start VNCServer before LogIn?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 3, 2004
I have downloaded realVNC so I can control my RedHat9 box (which acts like a server) through my WinXP laptop. It works... fantastic! A real recommendation for anybody who wants to work with a linux box without a screen or keyboard necesary, on a simple and user friendly manner.
I want to take it a step further now. I want to load vncserver automatically during the linux boot. Even before the login screen comes, so I can LogIn from my winXP Laptop as any user I like in the linux box.
Why? Currently I need a screen, a keyboard and a mouse to log in, and it takes up much unnecessary space when the box simply acts like a file-storage box.
Anybody who can help me?
Getting nutmonitor to start hidden automatically at login using ubuntu1204/mint13
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 5, 2012
I can't find any similar posts on this and googling has not so far thrown anything up hence this request.
Nut V2.6.3(-1ubuntu1.1) is installed and functioning correctly after a lot of fiddling with the init.d script. Nut-monitor (same version) also installed and functioning correctly with the --start-hidden option if launched from an alt/f2 command line - ie it places an icon in the notification area, no window is displayed, and throws up a notify message if the UPS status changes. Great. However, if I do the same from a terminal the icon and the process both disappear when the terminal is closed. Same even if it is launched as background process (NUT-Monitor --start-hidden &) - get a process id but closing the terminal somehow kills both the notify icon and the process. Putting the command into the "startup applications" list does not appear to do anything either.
I would appreciate any input on this - its a "nice-to-have" feature but not a showstopper really
After update of ubuntu 10.04, can't start Gnome Desktop after login
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 10, 2010
I use ubuntu 10.04 in VirtualBox (upgrated from 09.10), host os is Win7.
3-4 days ago update of ubuntu required restart of Ubuntu (linux kernel was updated).
After 3 days (i.e. yesterday) I restarted the system. I found that flashlib in Chrome became to work unstable, some artefact appeared, and only scrolling down-up in browser allowed to update view of screen. I run update manager. It showed ~88Mb of updates for last 3 days.
After download of updates, apply changes was failed! I faced this first time (!). I remember message like "can not synchronize file /usr/share/..." or something like that.
I restarted ubuntu again. Now I could not login. System hangs after login. No Gnome menu appears etc.
I tried to fix issue using dpkg. I found that some lib (ure) related to OpenOffice was not assigned (version XXX required, but bersion XXXY found). dpkg offered to solve this by some combination. I did so. Then I run dpkg update, and no errors appeared.
Also I updated Vir
