Fedora is my first Linux-based OS I've ever installed and everything seemed to be going well until I tried to log in. I enter my credentials and the login disappears leaving only the background image and the cursor. I've reinstalled 3 times and still have the same problem. Any suggestions? I've already looked at Fedora 19 freezes after login, but I do not understand any of it.
I had a similar issue with 24. Very strange. I rebooted, clicked on 'not listed' and entered my root user login. That got me into the desktop! Then I went to settings/users, unlocked it, and enabled autologin for my main account. Just to be safe I added myself as 2 different new accounts, 1 as administrator. But they turned out to be unnecessary (I think), because thereafter booting brought me straight to the desktop.
