password only works in text.

I installed buster recently but my password only works as text. I can bring up a terminal, su and it takes my password but not if I try to use a GUI application.

Can someone tell me what information I need to post, please. I can start certain apps using the command line but that's not what I want.

If you have to ask you really should be using Stable. Testing is for people who are up to doing their own troubleshooting, filing bug reports with solutions. Testing is not an upgrade; it really is testing in all that testing means.
