Fix “Failed To Start Session” At Login In Ubuntu 16.04ubuntu desktop
I run into this error and found the solution at https://itsfoss.com/failed-to-start-session-ubuntu-14-04/
Ctrl+Alt+F1 and run the following command to get Ubuntu Gnome Desktop up. But I am using xfce desktop.
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
Actually, it fixed the Gnome desktop instead of xfce. So I reinstall xfce desktop.
sudo apt install xubuntu-desktop
I don’t remember what I installed and caused the problem. The desktop layout still different with my original desktop. But it looks ok.
I don’t have time to investigate it. Just copy some steps from internet in case.
- Force reinstall desktop
sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop
- Redo package configuration
sudo dpkg-reconfigure -a
- Install Gnome shell and Gnome-desktop
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell ubuntu-gnome-desktop
