Enter LXDE (if working fine this, I hope), sure that internet connection works, then open up a terminal and

Code: Select all

# equo up --force
# equo i -av entropy
# equo u -av --multifetch 10
# equo dt
# equo lt
Once everything is done, reboot your system and at login screen choose MATE, the try logging in.
If nothing changed, please post output of

Code: Select all

# cat /var/log/messages
