I was having this problem (trust issues with apple device and linux):
I decided to "completely remove" all of those packages listed ie:
My intention was to re-install them, hoping it would fix the issue.
I restarted the machine and now I can't login - after I enter my password at the login screen, it just quickly displays a black screen with:
Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela pc-name tty1 pc-name login:
And then goes back to the login screen.
I'm wondering if
cinnamon was perhaps uninstalled as a related package?
Can anyone tell me how I can somehow login and reinstall those packages?
Operating System: Linux Mint 17.2 Cinnamon 64-bit
