Hi all. I'm really stuck with this one.
I'm setting up an SD card to be used in a classroom setting.
I want to instruct students to use adduser to create their own area to save files. When logging on as any new user, startx will run but go straight to a black screen. I've left it a long time to see if it was just loading but there's no activity on the LEDs or screen.
The user pi can run startx without issue and any new user can run sudo startx but booting into root's desktop. However using tightvncserver I can login as a new user and boot to their desktop remotely, just not directly on the Pi.
Can anyone suggest why this might be happening or possible fixes?
Raspberry Pi 2
I have ran apt-get update and apt-get upgrade
I have installed cntlm and added a script to the file /etc/skel/.profile to ask for the user's username and password and insert that into /etc/cntlm.conf
I have set the proxy to go via cntlm in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/10proxy and /etc/environment
I have tried using an empty skel, skel as the /home/pi folder and skel as a fresh /home/pi from another SD card.
