Desktops On New User Accounts Not Working

Postby dmh53 » Sat Jun 16, 2012 17:17

I am new to Linux and Sabayon and I am having trouble with my install. I have done a clean install of Sabayon 9 gnome, updated the files with Entropy and have checked the md5 checksum. All looks well until I create a new user account for my wife. The account creation process works as one would expect but when I log in to the newly created account I get a mostly blank desktop. I cannot even log out, I have to power off and reboot. I can right click and pull up a terminal window but nothing else. I have reinstalled 3 times an I have the same result each time. I have tried the same process with Linux Mint(two versions) and Ubuntu and the user accounts are OK. The problem seems only to occur with the Sabayon 9 setup. I have also tried upgrading the kernel to 3.4 and used the terminal window and superadduser all to no avail. I have no clue as to how to correct this. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance. Doug
