Cannot log in to Peppermint (ABANDONED)
« on: July 24, 2018, 09:16:48 am »
Greetings fellow Peppermint people!

I made the mistake of installing Compiz, believing it would allow me to do something I wanted to do... And it didn't. I removed it, however the damage had of course already been done and my logout button ceased to function. For whatever reason I rebooted and now I can't log on. Looking through past threads it seems that the fix is to reinstall peppermint-default-settings package? However I cannot log in, so yeah...

Help is very much appreciated.

Oh! And I'm using Peppermint 9.

Can you login into console mode?

I tried that, however when the console opens it is flooded with a never ending list of "PCIe Bus Error" messages.   :-\

Try ctrl-alt-f2  instead of ctrl-alt-f1

Code: [Select]
sudo apt install --reinstall peppermint-default-settings
......to infinity and beyond..............

Hmm, well Ctrl-Alt-F2 seemed hopeful at first, however as soon as I began to enter my password the error messages started pouring in just like before.

Well, I wound up simply reinstalling Peppermint.  :P It was no problem at all as I had only just installed it before. Thanks to everyone who replied!
