I am experiencing a login loop with my Manjaro VM (on virtualbox). Whenever I type my password in SDDM, I get a brief black screen and then login message again.
At first, I got the same error as descirbed here:
I have followed the solution there. It did not fix my problem, but I noticed that I dont have the
sddm-greetrc file at all. I created new one (which was suggested somewhere else in this forum).
Now I am stuck in a login loop with sddm. I guess this might be because the
sddm-greeterrc file is empty? What should it contain?
- working around sddm by escaping to tty and
startxmanually works, but it is cumbersome
- the system is Manjaro on a VM made with virtualbox. The system was working OK for a few months
- there are no pending updates
- before this issue, I have set used the installation option to log me in automatically. I had already a simillar experience with SDDM and I dont need to manage my desktop session. So a solution that would log me automatically in any way would be great for me too.
Thank you in advance for any help with this!
