Hi again all.
OK, the issue is this - I cannot log into my Laptop.
I can get to the standard login page, I enter my password and it will attempt to log in.
(It will have a bit of a think about it) and then return to the password prompt.
* I don't get an incorrect PW error. (I am certain that I'm using the correct PW).
* Also, when it does this, the screen will go black and I can see some writing. It shows about 3 lines of text as follows -
* Checking battery state [OK]
* Stopping system V runlevel compatibility [OK]
* Starting CUPS printing spooler/server [OK]
It disappears very quickly.
I have tried logging into the other DE's (Unity and XFCE) all with the same result.
I "suspect" it may have something to do with me accidently changing/getting lost in
various different run levels yesterday !
I was trying to get to the desktop cube (Ctrl+F11) and I have inadvertently managed to
get lost in the different runlevels. I finally manged to get back to a standard GUI,
finish what I was doing and then close down the laptop as normal.
However this morning, it's a no-go.
Am I stuck, (and still logged into) another runlevel ?
If so, can I log out (or flush all current loged in sessions) to start again fresh ?
Would this cure my problem ?
Useful info =
Ubuntu 12.04 (LXF version with all the extra DE's on it).
DE = KDE 4.8.5
i3 (Dual core - hyper threaded to make quad core)
3 GB RAM
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
(Edit 01 - I'm typing this from my desktop PC)
(Edit 02 - I managed to capture the on screen text. I posted it into the main body of the text).
(Edit 03 - Added the correct specs for the machine in question).
