When I try to log-in to Mint LXDE 10, the screen just switches back and forth between asking me for 'user' and 'password'.
Booting from my usb works fine, but then since I installed onto my hard drive, I haven't been able to get in.
I've tried reinstalling, and got the same problem.
I've looked around at all kinds of solutions on the forum and google, including
-modifying the /etc/xdg/lxdm/lxdm.conf to uncomment autologin and session (didn't do anything).
-ctrl alt f1ing to terminal, logging in as root, then rebooting (didn't do anything).
-startx from console. it appears to already be running.
-disabling pcmanfm through /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart
-logging in with any variant of user:Mint or user:mint and password:Null or password:mint
-booting into recovery mode and installing updates
I don't think my hardware is super old:
amd turion 64 1.58 ghz 896MB RAM
I've had zero success, which is very disappointing because I've heard so much about how great linux is, but so far have only wasted hours trying to get it to work.
Welll... back to XP for now, I guess
