I’ve been using Zorin OS for about 2 weeks now. Still fairly new to Linux as a whole but I’m really enjoying it so far!
Unfortunately yesterday after booting into Windows for something, I was stuck on a login loop when booting back into Zorin. Basically what happens is I enter my password, the screen goes black and my manufacturer’s logo appears before it goes straight back to the login screen,
I researched for a few hours, trying practically every solution I could find before eventually deciding to backup and reinstall. That fixed it, but after a few hours it randomly logged me out and went back to the login loop.
When I booted Zorin up today it just went straight to terminal and I was unable to start even the login graphical interface at all without reinstalling gdm3 and xorg.
I am able to login to the unity graphical environment using lightdm just fine so I’m guessing this is some kind of gdm3 issue.
