mdm[1341]: WARNING: mdm_config_parse: Authdir /var/lib/mdm does not exist. Aborting.
mdm_config_parse: Authdir /var/lib/mdm does not exist. Aborting.

My first reaction? This folder does not exist: /var/lib/mdm as noted in the errormessage: /var/lib/mdm does not exist.

To check if this folder exist or not, open a terminal and type or copy/paste the following command:
Code: Select all
sudo ls /var/lib/mdm

Post the output of this command here.
