Mint 14 logs me out right after login

Postby rojasrod on Sun Nov 11, 2012 10:50 pm

Hello everybody,

I just installed Linux Mint 14 Nadia mate 64 bit, as only operating system on the machine, no other partitions, encrypting the home folder.

When I put my username and password, I login successfully, and I hear the welcoming music that comes, but then the system logs me right out, and I am faced with the login screen again. Basically I can't login.

when I press Ctrl Alt F2, I am able to punch in my username and password, and I can login successfully, but so there is no problem with the username and password. Any ideas?

I seem to have solved it by installing the nvidia drivers from the command line

Sorry for the simple question:

sudo apt-get install nvidia-current


I was really trying to get a feel for the proper version number.
Thanks & Happy Thanksgiving.

Sorry for ask but I'm a newbie, how you can try the command without login. I tried with Cinnamon and Mate and have the same situation on both. Thanks

sorry for the late reply: you press ctrl alt f2 and you will see a command line, you sign in with your password, install nvidia with the above command, and then you reboot with "sudo reboot"

Thanks, don't know if was specific that driver or another because I changed the session to GNOME Classic, was able to login, after update all drivers and reboot didn't have any problem. But thanks anyway, now I know for future situations.
