Thread: Can't log into Gnome

  1. #1

    Default Can't log into Gnome

    I have XFCE and Gnome with OpenSUSE 11.1 and I can't log into Gnome anymore. When I select Gnome from the login manager, it starts, but then the screen flashes and I'm sent back to the login window where I have to select xfce.

    I enabled desktop effects last time I was in Gnome and maybe something went wrong with compiz?

    Any help?

    Disable desktop effects from xfce.. reset sax to initial settings. Should work.

    Still can't get into Gnome...

    I tried disabling effects in xfce, resetting Sax, if by that you mean running "sax2 -r" as root and that didn't help.

    Well, all I could suggest then is, just get in the software management and reinstall gnome desktop environment. Will loose all the themes you've installed. That's pretty much it.

    Good luck, If I come up with something else, I'll post back asap.

    It doesn't have anything to do with Compiz. I have a similar problem (Compiz is disabled). Though in my case this happens when I try to Login to XFCE; after inputting the p/w second time, I can login.
