Problem login in to PCLOS 2007
I am also having the same problem and it occurred after I followed the article "The Perfect Desktop". The symptom is as follows:
I am triple booting Windows XP, PCLOS 2007, and Ubuntu 7.10. Everything was working fine until I started installing all the applications from Synaptic. This happened twice already, the first time I thought I did something else in ubuntu that messed up pclos, so I just reinstalled everything clean.
The problem is that when I select PCLOS, the login prompt is not the default one anymore, it shows a grey screen with two columns, on the left, it shows a lot of different names including the user I created during installation, root, etc... I'm not sure if the bootloader got messed up or something. Anyways, on the right side, there are two text fields, one for the username and the other for password, when I selected my user on the left, it automatically placed it on the username field, and then i could only type 6 characters and then nothing else, I wasn't able to login, then I wasn't able to type in anything in the password field any more. There is a combo box on the right bottom, some of the options are restart X Server, change user, etc..
I can try to take a picture if it would help, but let me know.
