Welcome screen instead of login screen

asked 2018-12-27 12:03:24 -0500

I'm not able anymore to login into my user account. That's because at startup Fedora 29 shows me the "Welcome screen" to create a new user, like if I had just installed the OS. Via a bootable drive using chroot I can still see my home folder and all seems in order. Any clue about solving this issue?

On your machine press ctrl+alt+f3 o ctrl+alt+f4 then you will have a prompt asking for user and password, type your user and password then on the prompt type this:

sudo firstboot --disable

after that reboot the machine typing:


It should work normally

Good Luck
