[SOLVED] Login problem to XFCE after update and reboot

Post by chrisros » Thu May 17, 2018 3:53 pm

For your notice, I could not login to Xfce after today update 17 Maj. Strange.
However I could log in to openbox. If nothing happens to the better, I will reinstall ArcoLinux.

You are the only one reporting this.
Did you change something?
Where you in qwerty or some other keyboard setting?

Hi Erik
Could not log in at xfce at login screen today only openbox was OK.

I waited half day and did pksyua update at openbox environment
After that I could login at xfce again.
ArcoLinux is amazing. The BEST of all Linux.

I'm having exactly the same problem although mine hasn't been resolved by 'pksyua' it also started after doing updates on Thursday and other than doing updates nothing else has been altered. Do you have any advice or suggestions as what to do next :?: Rather not reinstall if possible but if needs must I will go down that route.

Do you autologin into xfce or do you type your password before logging in?

Check if you have the correct keyboard.
Then I would check the contents of /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

Keyboard is set correctly, what should I be looking for in lightdm.conf? Everything in there has a # at the beginning of each line if that gives you any clues

Keyboard is correct, and in lightdm.conf everything is # out except for the line run-directory=/run/lightdm should there be anything else I should be looking for in this .conf?
