Just installed my Mint Mate 13 64 bit, 2 days back and it was working fine. Today all of a sudden the system boots to tty1. When trying to logon to tty1, nothing happens and tty1 login prompt is back again in a second. Root user can login in tty1.
The same thing happened in XFCE 13 and I reinstall mate thinking it might solve the problem.
Topic moved here by moderator. If you are having trouble booting then the topic probably belongs under the 'Installation and Boot' section not under 'Newbie' when you have already made over 400 posts and been a forum member for going on 3 years.
I have the same problem on Mint Debian, installed yesterday 5 times 10 times booted 3 with black screen and reset, the last one, that was OK, was shutdown-ed without problem, normal, but now i can not start it, because of this error. I log me in as root, look at the directory, this Dir is on the disk, don't know, why it can not be read
