I recently did the automatic upgrade from 12.04 to 14.10, but I can't log in to my Ubuntu boot anymore.
I get a dark blue/black screen after the Ubuntu loading screen. If I move the mouse, I can see it, but no screen loads. I am able to ctrl-alt-f1 and get a login screen, and from there can do 'sudo service light-dm start'.
I just upgraded my ubuntu from 11.10 to 12.04 and cannot login anymore. When the login screen should appear i can only see a pink screen with vertical lines, which get black or white when I move the mouse to the right.
I have a problem logging back in to an X session. Only the very first (after bootup) login screen is diplayed. When I log in and later loggout the X login screen never comes back on. The screen stays blank/black.
Technicaly I can "blindly" login to an X session again because the machine normaly runs, but I cannot see the X login screen.
After upgrading to 13.10 the screen rotation with the acelerometer finally started to work on my Wetab. The only problem is that the screen orientation on the login screen and after the login is wrong. The screen is turned to right but the touchscreen isn't. I have to turn my Wetab to the right and back to normal again to get the correct screen orientation and a working touchscreen.
I have written an article about how to customize the Ubuntu login screen. After you edit the login screen, you may want to share your work on blogs and forums. However, you simply cannot just press the print-screen button to take screenshot of the login screen in Ubuntu. To do so, you can use a workaround command to preview the login screen and take screenshot of it.
I recently install the latest version of Ubuntu and it went perfect. Since that is stuck in login screen and I can't even type anything from keyboard and use my mouse to do something. Then after 5 mins. it does black like its in idea mode and stay as same condition for while. I have to turn it off manually and on to get to my home screen or login screen.
