I am a novice Ubuntu user. Mine is Xubuntu Ver 4.8.
I was then unable to access my user account named tomato. Everytime I login the splash, it just went back to the login page. So I tried browsing for some answers. I then tried
sudo chow -R tomato /home /tomato
I think it was not allowed so I typed in
sudo chmod -R 755 /home /tomato
Nothing happened so I tried the first command and I think it did something. Then I tried the second command and I think it also worked.
Now I can access the user TOMATO but then my old files are gone. All the settings were refreshed. Installed files under Wine were gone.
How can I revert back to how my old user account was?
