• Xfce will not let me do loguin

    After installing Antergos with Xfce, when turning on the PC, I see the login screen (although I marked it in the installation that came directly), I write my password, that screen goes, it seems that wants to enter … and Go back to the same place to ask me to log in.
    If I enter any password, invented, it tells me that this password is not valid, but if I enter the correct one, it seems that it wants to enter the system, but it returns to the login, without being able to advance further.
    Any idea what can happen?

  • It is assumed that opening a console with Ctrl + Alt + F2 and typing sudo pacman -U xorg-server-1.19 should suffice, right?
    It tells me that it does not find xorg-server-1.19 and if version 1.20, which is what I have installed.

  • @juanbellas
    Can you install package downgrade and use that to go back to xorg-server 1.19?

  • @JuanBellas

    sudo pacman -S downgrade
    downgrade xorg-server

  • When doing downgrade xorg-server, I get a lot of options, I’m choosing one by one for their number and choose the one you choose, in all cases the same thing happens: it does not load the desktop.
    I think I’m going to give up, this is already too complicated for me.
    I can not have a system that uses me so long.

    One thousand thanks for your help.

    The problem now is not that common and not what you will have to solve often.

    But on the other hand … Linux is about knowing your hardware, and get involved in the way system works, it needs a little learning curve, but with a little help from friends it is not that hard!

    But do what you ever think is right for you, and hopefully we will see you here again!

    you’ll need to identify all xorg related packages (around 5) and downgrade them all together, otherwise you wont get graphical login:
