Re: Cant login into cinnamon (infinite crash loop) please help

As a process of elimination of your user configuration, you can temporarily move the alwin directory to alwin.save and create a new alwin directory. During the next reboot it will start with a fresh /home/alwin directory and eliminate any user configuration conflicts. After booting into the recovery...

Re: Cant login into cinnamon (infinite crash loop) please help

Is the "alwin" user the only login account created on this computer?

Code: Select all

ls -l /home/alwin

Why did you perform a timeshift restore?

How many different timeshift snapshots were available for restore?

Re: System is taking Longer than usual Boot Time

Wow, that is excessive. I suspect disk errors, and it should be noted in the /var/log/syslog file. The syslog should provide vital information to determine why your startup time is lengthy. Also, you can use the disks program to check the hard drive s.m.a.r.t. status. If nothing appears to be obviou...

Re: Tiny display on 1st boot crippling

I cannot tell from the image you supplied, because the icons in the bottom right hand corner are so small. Are you using VirutalBox? VirtualBox has a View->Scaled Mode (Host+C) option that might help you get to the point of readability, so you can change the Linux display settings.
