View Full Version : F25-mate to F26-mate usr can't login via GUI

16th September 2017, 01:47 AM
following the upgrade procedure via https://fedoramagazine.org/upgrading-fedora-25-fedora-26/

my F25 is a mate version

when i login as "user" via GUI, screen quickly goes black then back to GUI login page without reaching my desktop. there is a one line text on that black screen, but that screen vanishes too quickly to read it.

if i login as root via GUI login page, that login works fine. from there i can then "su -l user" via term window, and login is accepted ok too.

i do see a line in /var/log/secure:
"Unregistered Authentication Agent for unix-sessions:8 ..."

suggestions how to correct this behavior on a mate spin after the F25->F26 upgrade?
