comment Cannot login in graphical mode - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Apparently the login issue only "went away" temporarily (on first boot after reinstall), after that it started behaving the same again. The etc/default/grub change didn't seem to help, but the workaround of installing kdm and then choosing GNOME session was OK.

comment Cannot login in graphical mode - Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
Thanks a lot for your help. I didn't end up needing this however as the issue mysteriously disappeared after another reinstall and format of /home drive. Works fine even with restricted drivers enabled at the moment. On previous try I think I've missed formatting /home, however I did have other installs before that with reformatting, so that is not necessarily the obvious problem. Another difference is that I've set /home to be encrypted, but I'm not sure how that would "fix" this. If the issue suddenly reappears this workaround will certainly be the first thing I'll try.

It certainly seemed to be nvidia related, but I don't have the restricted drivers installed (fresh install, first login) so it looks like it's something else. Also removed all other nvidia related packages. Updated my question with more concrete info.

@Patches: Please ignore my previous comment about dist-upgrade, my mistake. I do have all the packages up to date at the moment though.

@Patches: Added the log output. So far I did aptitude full-upgrade, not apt-get dist-upgrade however, as I would've liked to use latest LTS distribution. But I'll try to upgrade the distribution too, I'm curious if it fixes the issue.
