Ubuntu 18.04 automatically login out if I open system config

Hello everyone,

I’m having troubles installing and configuring my Ubuntu 18.04 (A lot actually haha) the current problem i’m having is when I try to open the displays conf or the Bluetooth conf, as soon I click on the icon the system will logout with no error message whatsoever.

I’m just starting with Linux and the programming world, and I love everything so far, I hope to someday became useful to the community but in the meantime i’m just an asking robot (Hope to end that cycle soon enough).

Thanks in advance to everybody.

Hi @Alexon,

If you are using a DigitalOcean droplet, I’ll recommend using the droplet console in this case. This console can be found in the Control Panel

Having said that, I don’t believe you are using a server but the Desktop edition and using it via the GUI, is that correct? If it is, I’ll recommend editing the .conf files via CLI, gnome-terminal or whatever you are using. Additionally, if you encounter errors, the best place to check them out is the journal which can be seen by using your terminal and typing in the following command

journalctl -xe

The above command will show you all the recent system messages.

Hope that helps!
