GUI problems with fresh net install of Stretch

Postby Conner179 » 2019-09-23 05:18

I've followed the same procedure I have successfully used with Jessie, but the GUI isn't working properly.

Installation process:
* Installed from USB stick, graphical install chosen.
* LVM with full disk encryption.
* All data in one partition.

Software selection:
* Added MATE Desktop Environment (also tried xfce).
* Removed print server.
* Added SSH server.

Installation proceeds as normal. Reboot at end.

Successfully decrypt system volume.
LightDM wallpaper appears, but no UI elements.

Manually installing Slim or SDDM causes a viable login dialog to appear after a reboot, but the desktop never seems to load - no menu is displayed.

Anybody having a similar experience and got it working?
Regards,
Conner

Re: GUI problems with fresh net install of Stretch >> LightDM bug report: Debian config to do my homework


Hello,
I guess you were getting this error message:

Code: Select all
lightdm Could not enumerate user data directory /var/lib/lightdm/data: Error opening directory '/var/lib/lightdm/data': No such file or directory

I had the same error when starting the Linux apps on the Pixelbook. The solution: destroy and create a container on Pixelbook.
