Problem logging into desktop

My system froze, so I had to reboot. When I did so, I was unable to log into the desktop. I enter the correct credentials, but after an initial start of the log-in process, I am instead brought back to the log-in screen.

I was able to log into the console.  From the terminal, I tried running Startx but this did not get me into the desktop but instead I face the same issue.

How do I get my Trinity Desktop back into the game?

Re: Problem logging into desktop

First you should check, if problem is in the user profile or system wide. So login into the console and create test user:
$ sudo adduser test
$ sudo systemctl restart tdm-trinity
Try to login as test user and let result here.

You could try to remove some cache files too. Login into the console:
$ sudo systemctl stop tdm-trinity
$ sudo rm -rf /var/tmp/tdecache*
$ sudo rm -rf /tmp/tde*
$ sudo rm -rf /home/your-home-dir/.trinity/cache*
$ sudo rm -rf /home/your-home-dir/.trinity/socket*
$ sudo rm -rf /home/your-home-dir/.trinity/tmp*
$ sudo reboot
Try to login after reboot.

Re: Problem logging into desktop

Thank you for the prompt and detailed reply.

I successfully created new user Test. But Test could not log into the desktop,either.

Then I implemented each of the commands you listed. After the reboot, I still had the same issue.
Do you have any other ideas? I'll reinstall if need be (grabbing my files with a Puppy Linux live run  before reinstalling) but it would be fun to fix rather than install.

Attach files here to analyze:
/var/log/tdm.log
/var/log/Xorg.0.log
/home/your-home-dir/.xsession-errors

Re: Problem logging into desktop

I have a similar issue that my TDE desktop is crashing and by accident I pressed Ctrl + Alt + F5

What is the login for tty4 or tty5 ?

my user login won't work.  And, I tried root | root  /    root  | password  / root | 123456  / root | *blank*

Is this a shell root or chroot login ?

I am very curious.

Thanks,

Bobby

It seems your filesystem has been corrupted by the unexpected freeze. You can check and repair filesystem from live media with 'fsck' command. However, the best way will be probably to reinstall in that case. If you want to run commands as root, use 'sudo' command. You can run root console from Start menu -> Programs -> Accessories -> System -> Superuser -> Terminal and enter your sudo password.

Root password is disabled by default. Use 'sudo su' command to get root console.
