I'm currently on fedora 28 and i can't login normally because even if the username and password are correct he redirect me to the login form every time. If i insert wrong credential it correctly show the error message. I can login only if i do it with the textline login. Someone has expirienced this kind of problem?

The problem was caused by an error in /etc/profile file modified for the maven installation, commenting the lines solved the problem but i did't get why it caused that login loop

I'm experiencing this same problem with a new install, what lines did you comment out in the profile?

If you have the extension Workspaces to Dock it's a known bug. You have to erase it for the time being. Login with the terminal, in your home cd to ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions and remove the extension (or rename it, if you prefer). You will be able to login as usual afterwards.

I quickly searched the web for that problem, and one of the first hits is this report.

Looks like one of your extensions can cause that kind of problem. So you have to move or remove them (all or one by one), and then reinstall them. (see comment in bug report).

Hi there, unfortunately got to be something different, at least for me... since moving the gnome-shell/extensions directory to a different place didn't solve the issue. Can anyone suggest me which journalctl filters should I use in order to get a "targeted" output?

Hi again, in order not to leave anything open, my issue was about the locale. After installing the Italian langpack I can regularly login again.
