Re: Login loop

If not, now is the time. ;) PS: you can kill your X-session with Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, if so configured, or j...

Re: Login loop

^ that, and he means you should do that from the login screen that you get dropped back to, not from the live USB. After you did that, press Alt+F7 and see if you can log in. If you cannot, press Ctrl+Alt+F1 again, run startx, see what error messages you get. The issue is typically one of messed up...

Re: Streaming to a PS4

Plex is free and it works fine via my ps4 for both LM and Win 10...you just need to configure router for UPnP/Nat which plex clearly states in their troubleshooting guide
