Gnome will not remain logged in

Hi all!

On a fresh install of Ubuntu 9.04 I fail to stay logged in. As soon as I the gnome Desktop comes up, it goes back to the gdm login screen. Same thing happens on Live CD boot up to Desktop.

Steps I have taken so far that have not worked:
1 - Cleaned PC (RAM, CPU, AGP card)
2 - Tried differet Video Cards
3 - Reinstalled
4 - Boot in safe graphics mode
5 - dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
6 - kill gdm and do startx
7 - added another user to login with

Thank you for your help!

I tried a previous version of Ubuntu and it worked. This prompted me to burn another copy of 9.04 and it worked!

This just proves that writing things helps find the solution...


gdm, gnome, jaunty, ubuntu
