View Full Version : Log-in to the GUI after installation

07-05-2004, 01:15 PM
Hi there,
I am no LINUX/KNOPPIX newbie, nevertheless I have a question concerning the installation of the latest release of Knoppix.
During the installation on a 2,2 GByte harddrive on a PC with 1024 MByte RAM, thus no swap space is required, everything performs flawlessly.
As soon as I want to login the first time, KDE refuses to accept my username/password; the only way to log-on to the GUI is as root. On a console however I can log-in with username(!=root) and password.
Any suggestions, explanations or solution to this phenomenon?
Thank you very much in advance

Do you have some 'strange' characters in your password that might be under different keys on foreign keyboards? Just guessing here but kde might have a differently setup for the keyboard.
Try changing your user password to something simple, log into kde, change the keyboard layout, and change back your password to something difficult again.
