with the login screen. When I enter the name again, and thereafter
password, the same happens again. No error- message, just comes
back like if nothing happened. No error with the password: if I
enter a different password, it gives a "wrong password"-message.
On a console (under eg. alt-ctl-F2)I can login without a problem.
But not under KDE.
Can't find a message in /var/log/messages, the only log I can
imagine as a place for error-messages.
