self-generating "5" every second - not able to login
Binary package hint: gdm
Upgraded from Ubuntu 8.10 to Jaunty via Synaptic automatic upgrade.Not able even to login: the system generates "5" in the login window every second, so, I am not able to write the password within this interval between two generated "5"-s, the result is "Wrong password". I had the same problem when I upgraded from Ubuntu 6 to Ubuntu 8.04; then there has appeared Ubuntu 8.10, to which I've upgraded and which was free from this problem. 8.10 ---> 9.04 has given birth to it again.
To overcome this problem I've added into the /boot/grub/menu.lst after the line
## ## End Default Options (I've inserted "root (hd1,0)" in 2nd line ##
title Ubuntu 8.15, kernel 2.6.28-15-generic
title Ubuntu 8.14, kernel 2.6.27-14-generic
and was forced to choose booting from second line
(Ubuntu 8.14, kernel 2.6.27-14-generic).
Then I was able to login, but I've got next problem
"HPLIP Status Service fails - no system tray detected"
What should be done?
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 9.04
Package: gdm 2.20.10-0ubuntu2
PATH=(custom, no user)
Uname: Linux 2.6.27-14-generic i686
