Xubuntu/xfce4 infinite login problem: simple workaround
xfce4 infinite login problem..
On startup, Xubuntu can get stuck asking you to login repeatedly. A simple problem with serious consequences.
Here's the fix:
At the Xubuntu login password entry screen you have an option (down below on the panel) to either login for an xfce session, or a terminal session.
Select terminal session, enter your password and a terminal window will open. Now type
and hit return.. xfce starts and you are in your desktop environment.
This is a workaround rather than a fix, but it is simple and it works.
