I have replaced the generated home with my old home folder. Now I can not log in to unity. (i can login to tty1)
How do I best fix this?
What files is needed in home to login?
I started without: .xsession file.
Very bizarre situation you have their. My best advice to this would create a new user from TTY1 (terminal) using the command
If you are able to login with the newuser account, then just copy the files out of /home/newuser into your home folder. Also, if you have to copy the files as root, make sure you correct the file ownerships.
