[Bug 1652713] Re: Attempted login after screenlock and it wouldn't work until rebooted


Thanks for reply back, but was thinking about it lately, just easier to
avoid Gnome distros I guess.. I don't have money, I can't keep affording
to buy things just to make operating systems work for tower... when
usually operating systems handle comparability for even older computers
like mine. lol.

There's still tons and tons of older computers being refurbished, and
sold, or given away to less fortunate people. My Dell Vostro was a
donated PC from local business, it refurbish many computers and gave
them away to those that mainly needed them. Most operating systems
should be back compatible for older chipsets etc.

Guess I could just go with a KDE distro or regular Ubuntu and tweak it
to be how I like... I can't keep going through headaches of trying to
figure out and buy the right graphics cards etc. And still wouldn't have
money to get keyboard and mouse. Thanks for your help though, but I
guess I can't use Budgie-Remix after all.. unless I just use it and deal
with some flickering at boot/login screen and page tearing, which I'm
not sure how to do that "fix" you suggested anyway. I'm still a linux
learner, even though I've tried various linux in past lol.

Either regular Unity/KDE distro I guess, or go back to Windows 7 again
and keep looking through all Windows 7 updates one by one to get rid of
upgrade to 10 nagware /spyware bullshit, or just throw in towel and lose
the fight and upgrade to Windows 10 (full spy operating system) and be
done with it. Guess it's price to pay for being a jobless /unemployable
person with no money.. gotta give up something, in my case privacy.. Of
course running Windows 10 is no different than showering or bathing nude
in middle of town square so... lol

  Attempted login after screenlock and it wouldn't work until rebooted

Status in budgie-remix:

Bug description:
  Hi all, first timer with Budgie Remix, I just installed it with LVM
  encryption on whole drive along with /home folder. I ran sudo update
  and sudo dist-update and walked away for about an hour to do
  something, came back and tried logging in at login screen and it
  didn't let me through to desktop.

  I entered the password for the user account correct (as it didn't give
  me an incorrect password message), hit enter or login button and it
  acted as it was going to take me to desktop but didn't, kept me at
  login screen. I tried logging in a few times after that with correct
  password and it did the same thing each time.

  It acted as if I was going to be taken into desktop, but ended up
  right back at login screen. So I just decided to reboot/restart
  computer, got to drive encryption password screen, entered the
  password, that worked. Got to login screen again, entered password
  again and then it worked.
