Double login...

Post by Dark_Fire » Tue Jul 01, 2008 5:20 am

Hey,

1st of all, I am not sure where to post this. I hope this is the right place...

I dunno why, but I have to login twice. I get the login screen, then I login, and then it prints a few lines, and then the screen goes off, and then there is another login screen...

I guess its not that bad, but it sure is irritating...

Hope someone can help.

Thanks

That's a new one....
Seems like X restarts right after you login
Which version of Mint?
And what do you see before the next login?
That may tell us the error

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I think I just found the problem. If you go:
System -> Administration -> Login Window
Click on Local, and then Style... That is the problem.

It seems to me that when one selects "Themed with face browser", it does the Dule login... It should be only "Themed".

Hope this helps.

Thanks dolf05. Much appreciated.

O and, forgot to answer your questions. :oops:
I use Mint Elyssa,
And just before the next login is just the normal X Server startup... (As far as I could tell)

Try changing the login window prefs and see, it might give you the same error.

I still have a problem with my sound thou:

Thanks anyway.

Very much appreciated!

I'm having the same problem, though with Linux Mint 9. As for your solution, Dark_Fire, it seems those directories have been completely moved around in 9, I can't find those options at all.

Hello raptosaurus
I'd suggest you start a new thread with your question as this thread has had no new posts for over two years.
