Hi I'm looking for some help, I'm new-ish to the Rasp Pi and I can't understand what i'm doing wrong. I have 3 Rasp pi's and I'm still getting the same problem with all of them so I know it is not the hardware. I can get octopi running and can login with the usual method. I can even use putty and login from any other PC in my house with no problem. But as soon as I put a 5" HDMI touch screen onto the pi and run :-
" sudo apt-get install lightdm " it all goes wrong even when I plug the HDMI into a monitor. I can use putty to login but when I set the Raspi in the config menu to boot straight to GUI / desktop I can't log in. I keep going around in circles, with it not accepting my login or password.
I've pressed ctrl+alt+F1 and changed the password and I still can't login.
I've done :-
then after that did
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
and still I can't login to the octopi GUI / desktop.
I know there is nothing wrong with the 5" touch screen I've had other programs running on it.
Can anybody please point me in the right direction or can someone post a copy of a working Octopi image that works with lightdm and boots straight to the desktop.
