Default Kubuntu issues

Hi all
Well I have what I imagine to be the lastest version of Kubuntu and it
was going well right up unitl the point I did an update....then as
indicated I reebooted the poota...and got to the log in screen...put in
the password that I'd used before and it re looped to the log in screen.

I've re set the password still the same thing happens.

So what do I do next?

Growing frustration

that's probably an X issue, a KDE problem, or a bash problem (weird, but
yes, bash profiles did this once with me!)
can you remember what packages were last installed? also, it might not
be related to the update, the problem occurred because of something you
did else.
if an X package has been installed, go to a console from the login
screen and run "sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg"
have you changed any of these files in your home directory, ".bashrc"
".profile" or any similar bash settings file? if so, either restore a
backup, fix it, or simply delete it.
hope this helps

And just to role out a login problem, press CTRL-ALT-F1 and try to
login from a console. If that work it's probably a KDM/KDE problem.
I don't think it's a X problem as KDM is starting up OK.

Hi John,

I have the same problem as you, it happend after the update of kde 4 in march.
(I think it was kde 4.0.2)
And i still have no solution for it.
All I do now is when kdm comes up I choose the console login option in the
dropdown menu.
And in the console I can use my password, and fire up x with startx.

I would like too have it fixed because now I can only use kde 3.5.x.

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried re-installing kdm? You might also want to uninstall kdm-kde4.
You can still get to kde4 from the command line with
startx /usr/lib/kde4/bin/startkde

Hi Paul,

I did try the command line and it worked greatm I am now typing this to you
from within kde4.
I know what the problem is, the layout of the keyboard is wrong.
I wanted to fix it in system settings but I can not find it in the menu.
I cheked to see if system settings for kde 4 was istalled, and it is.

In kde 3.5.x the layout is fine.
