You also could log in in text mode but not in the GUI?Acorn22 wrote:This happened to me too.
Does the GUI actually say that the credentials you have given are wrong, or does it just fail to launch a desktop and immediately ask you to log in again?grillomalta wrote:works in cli , but gui simply won't have it.

How exactly did you download the GUI ?grillomalta wrote:Set up the lite version of Jessie, for which I downloaded the GUI. It is now asking me for a login name and password.
Nonsense, having a GUI has no relation to headless use.BobKruse wrote:The lite image is for the people who need a headless image.
Why on earth are you doing that with Jessie Lite, that's insane? Use the full Jessie install and you get a GUI that is a) pre-configured and b) just works. The whole point of Jessie Lite is NO GUI because you don't need a GUI on a headless system.Parkview wrote:I too have been trying to install a GUI onto Jessie Lite (upgraded to current packages).
What did you download and from where? What you've described shouldn't happen - the current release of Raspbian Jessie + Pixel desktop** should default to booting to the desktop (and auto-logged in as user pi IIRC). For my purposes, after changing pi's password, I disable auto-login and boot-to-desktop to revert to command-line boot (since I may be running headless having far more Pi's than monitors)alehman wrote:Hello,
I just downloaded a new image of full Jessie, but it too does not seem to have GUI. 'startx' produced 'file not found'. I installed lightdm per the suggestion provided and it configured it to boot to GUI. It now boots to a Debian 8 login screen, but it won't accept the default password.
If you see a message such as "incorrect password", then your credentials are being rejected. Otherwise the password is correct, but the GUI is failing to launch.rma153 wrote:Debian 8 GUI does not accept raspberry as the password which leaves you in a loop of incorrect credentials, with no way to recover.
Did you really mean "Debian 8" (and not Raspbian)? If so then maybe other "credentials" are needed (probably to be found elsewhere than here)rma153 wrote: ...
