View Full Version : Can't login after screen locks

22nd May 2007, 02:26 AM
Please help... I can log into my user account just fine with my user/pass, but if the screen locks (either via screensaver or if I lock it), my password isn't accepted even though I know it's correct. I get an incorrect password error message and my only option is to shut down.

I unchecked "lock screen when screensaver is active" but there are times I need to lock the screen when I walk away from my desk.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

are you VERY sure capslock/numlock is in the right position? ;)

chmod 4755 /sbin/unix_chkpwd
