Error during 1-st start: No Exec in session file [SOLVED]

Postby drvlas on Mon Jan 13, 2014 5:30 am

Hi everybody!

I'm a newbie in Linux. Installed Linux Mint Cinnamone 16 64 bit (full). During the startup I have a subj message (don't know the exact translation, my system writes in Ukrainian and I lack PC-Linux terminology) and starts a safemode session.
Afterwards there was a msg that I should solve the problem. So I'm afraid to do anything, to install programs and study Mint.

Please tell me what error is to be repaired and in what a way. In accordance with my zero level, for God's sake!
Thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
 

Additional info: sys log file

I've guessed that some additional info would be useful.
So here is /var/log/syslog in attachment. At the 261-st line you can find WARNING in Ukrainian. That is the one I'm thinking about

...Well, what extention IS allowed? Aha, RAR. I post here a short seemingly relevant section of the file. The warning is in it. It goes as: Missing line Exec in session file: ubuntu. Starting a safemode session GNOME

The solution

It seems that the problem emerges when MDM is launched. So I decided to install LightDM instead MDM - and it solved my problem.
