[SOLVED] Mint 14 XFCE - normal XFCE session starts

Postby Dibo » Tue Jan 01, 2013 2:49 pm

Hi,

I have clean Mint XFCE 14 64bit installation (only home partition is from Cinnamon 14). When I'm loggin then normal XFCE is loading (with panel on top etc) instead of Mint XFCE and with some ugly Win95 theme. I tried 3 times reinstall it (twice from USB) but still same problem. I tried all sessions in login screen but no result. Any idea? Is login manager trying load session saved from previous Cinnamon which could be stored in my home partition? I attached screenshot

Regards

Ok, I tried to install on virtualbox this same iso image and here everything is working fine. So reson must be on my /home partition from previous linux. What shoud I delete from my home to reset MDM configuration?

Thanks! I created new user and copy all hidden config files to my old profile and now everything is working fine
