Put computer in hibernate, now screen is black on login

Postby saturoman on Wed Mar 28, 2012 5:31 am

Installed LXDE a few days ago on a Macbook. Computer starts great. Today I tried to hibernate the computer, then when I reopened it, I got the typical splash screen with the graphical login prompt. So far, so good..then I log in with my account, and the screen turns black although the mouse works.

I hit CTRL+ATL+F3 to get to the terminal, and it works great. So it's just the window manager or something that's borked. How do I get it to work again?

Option+Esc+Right arrow key
and it worked. Strange.
