Stuck in blank screen with tty message
« on: August 20, 2014, 10:03:37 am »
Hi all
Everytime I boot into peppermint 5, i get a blank screen saying:

Peppermint Five Computer name tty1
Computer name login:

I can see the peppermint bar progressing until full, then i get that blank screen.
Whats happening?

The only thing i can do is reboot, choose booting peppermint in recovery mode, and then i can get to my desktop normally

Thanks in advance

What happens if you login by entering your username then ppassword, then run:
Code: [Select]
sudo service lightdm startor
Code: [Select]
sudo service lightdm restartor hit Ctrl+Alt+F7
