Glib-WARNING**: getpwuid_r() failed on Ubuntu
  

I get this error when shutting down and booting Ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop. This error also mentions that it happens due to unknown user id (0). I don?t know the basic idea behind this problem. I was looking in Google how to hide this message but I haven't found anything. Any help regarding this will be appreciates.

Re: Glib-WARNING**: getpwuid_r() failed on Ubuntu

I remember I see it very often in ubuntu installed system too. The other way is to be use an LiveUSB and with this help of this you need to install Ubuntu 10.04 on this system. This will be performing a reinstallation task on it. Then in response it will be fix such kind of problem with a correct manner. A live USB is a USB flash drive containing a full operating system which can be booted. In short this is the booting device that is to be holds all the installation related support files and format. This solve your problem.

Using method to boot this ubuntu system without plymouth doesn't show that error on your system. Plymouth is the application which provides the graphical "bootsplash" for Ubuntu.

Can you do Ctl+Alt+F2 and log in as root in console? Plymouth was deemed unstable and not included in LMDE. When Ubuntu first introduced PulseAudio, it was one hell of a plight for the end-user. The Plymouth will be work to do this kind of task onto it. This is the best that can be work to solve this kind of problem. Then use this Plymouth on your ubuntu and it will be help to you for fixing this real kind of problem. it works smoothly on any kind of system.
