I am using ubuntu 12.10 after installing iphone mount software I was asked to reboot. After rebooting my password was no more working.

I reset the password on recovery mode, now password works but every time I hit enter it keeps bringing me back to login screen.

I guess maybe an error on the last software I installed. How can I recover previous setting before the installation?

Chek your ~/.profile, and see in last line. Maybe something wrong there, just comment it and try to reboot.
