Can't start up Kubuntu, it keeps asking me password in loop.
 
I have Kubuntu.

1. It boots properly

2. Comes the graphics that asks me password.

3. I enter the correct password

4. Black screen comes

5. Asking me the password again.

It goes in loop from 2. to 5.
Entering in recovering mode, i tried to add a user (adduser). Apparently nothing has changed. Still asking the password of the previous user. Don't know what to do

thanx a lot.

hug,
fede

Enter [ctrl]-[alt]-F2 and try to log in to a virtual terminal instead of graphically.

Another thing to try is to boot up with a rescue disk or live distro and read the xorg, xdm/kdm logs and the messages log. Find out if you are failing authentication or if xdm/kdm or mingetty is crashing and respawning.

it works, but then...
 
thanx jschiwal

I can login from the Console.
But then i don't know what to do

username@systemaname:~$

what should i do? Is there any command that would allow me, once i have logged in, to pass from Console to my 'computer'?

$ sudo mkdir /etc/dbus-1/ session.d

mkdir: no se puede crear el directorio 'etc/dbus-1/' : el fichero ya existe

username@systemname:~$



(((in english:
mkdir: impossible to create directory 'etc/dbus-1/': the file already exists)))

ohi ohi ohi... help! -please-

The sentence in spanish means: "impossible to create temporal file for this document. there is no free space in the device"


username@systemname:~$ startx
hostname: unknown host
/usr/bin/startx: line 132: no se puede crear archivo temporal para este documento: no hay espacio libre en el dispositivo
/usr/bin/startx: line 150: no se puede crear archivo temporal para este documento: no hay espacio libre en el dispositivo
/usr/bin/startx: line 150: no se puede crear archivo temporal para este documento: no hay espacio libre en el dispositivo


Fatal server error:

Could have been this caused by the fact that there is no free space on my hard disk. it could be that is full.
What can i do?

I removed /tmp/.X0-lock
following

getting the same result

Sounds like it is time to do some cleaning up. Determine which filesystem is full and what you can delete.
For /var/log/, look for archived log files that have .gz at the end of the filename.
Does your system rotate logs? Look in /etc/logrotate.d/ and read "man logrotate" to make sure.
If it is your home partition, you can probably backup then delete old documents you don't need.

You can clear your brower cache, and delete the contents of ~/.thumbnails. These can have thousands of files in them.
Enable the clearing of /tmp when you reboot. This can prevent /tmp from being filled.
