Hello, after I update fc7 to fedora 10, I cannot start an X session
(startx) when logged as a standard user !
The mouse pointer does not show up and the gnome session never starts.
root user is OK.
I boot in test mode.
What's the permissions of the /tmp directory? I've seen that sort of
thing in prior releases, because there was a problem there.
[[email protected] ~]$ ls -dl /tmp
drwxrwxrwt 53 root root 4096 2009-03-03 01:01 /tmp
^ that "t" being crucial, as well as rwx for all the others.
drwxrwxrwt 59 root root 7168 2009-03-02 14:32 /tmp
since user 'root' is OK, I suspect that you probably are having an issue with
older settings and you can temporarily move them out of the way...
Use <Control><Alt><F2> to get to a virtual console.
login as your regular user
execute these commands as a regular user...
mv .gnome .gnome-bak
mv .gnome2 .gnome2-bak
mv .gconf .gconf-bak
mv .gconfd .gconfd-bak
I already tried this, but it does not work.
I have the same problem when creating a brad new user.
and then log in as user to see if that solves the GNOME issue.
