Login screen issue.
#1
Hi fellas,

I've had KDE installed via eMMC for a few months now. I hadn't fired it up in awhile. Now at the login screen, when I enter my password and hit ENTER or the click on the LOGIN button, nothing happens.

Any ideas on how to fix this, and can I even get to a terminal to work some magic on the backend?

Yes, you should be able to. Use Ctrl + Alt + F(2-7) to get to a TTY, where you can login and work through the terminal. You should be able to look at any system messages to see why KDE isn't loading, too.

Thanks!   Ctrl + Alt + F3 got me to a terminal.  Now for the fun stuff!
