Logging in via the shell accessed through Ctrl+Alt-F1 and logging in as guest via the graphical user interface work 0O
When I try to log into my standard user account via the graphical interface, the screen flashes to black for a couple of seconds and bumps me back to a pristine login screen. Entering a wrong password for my user account yields the standard error message – my user account and credential verification seem to be OK.
I suppose that my individual graphics configuration causes problems … I'm not sure how to reset that. I've tried stopping the UI via
sudo service lightdm stop
and restarted the UI
sudo service lightdm start
to no avail.
My workstation has a Nvidia GeForce 560-448 graphics card. I've tried getting this fixed with the latest Nvidia 64-bit drivers (cURL'ed from the official website), that is 295.49 and the latest beta driver 302.07.
Anybody have an idea how to get this fixed? Your help is appreciated 🙂
