My account I created would not log in, but Root would with my administrator password worked. Thanks for the advice on that.
I tried pacman and yaourt commands but I received this error. http://imgur.com/H9e3WPV
I know the command in the picture is wrong, but anything to do with pacman or yaourt gives me that error.
Thank you for the quick reply. I think something more is at play. My default account will not let me log in. When I run the command CTRL+ALT+F2, I type my username and password but I can’t log in. Saying incorrect log on.
I’ve been googling but having no luck, are there built in admin accounts like on windows? I’m reading on the wiki how to create users with different settings but there doesn’t seem to be a default admin account unless it was created by me.
I was able to boot from puppy Linux and copy my data, It’s verifying now. if the data is good, I can reinstall but if there is a way I can fix the machine as is that would work to.
Hey guys and welcome to my forum post. I am a linux noob for the most part. I have had this box working correctly for the last year or so. Preforming sudo -pacman -Syu updates once a month with no issues.
This time when I preformed an update, the update froze and I had to turn off the pc.
When I try to log in through the plasma gui, It starts to load then kicks me back out to the same log in screen.
I’m assuming, I need to access the terminal and re-install plasma? or is there something more I am missing.
Let me know what you think.
