Hello GUys

I need an help to understand an help about how to fix an issue with the accountsservice which goes in timeout preventing ubuntu
to boot properly. Basically gdm does not start because of that. This is bascally the error

I've tried to unistall/reinstall the accountsservice package, reinstall gdm, but nothing worked. i'm to see the account-daemon take al loot of CPU cicle with dbus-daemon. but i really don't know what i can try to fix it

Thanks in Advance

Hmm... I'm not sure what's going on. I tried to fix your post to remove the automatic smilies, but the button didn't do as expected and you still have smilies being automatically generated.

I tried that. I tried it twice. It may not work as an edit and only work during the initial publication process? I dunno.
