- Ubuntu gets stuck in a login loop 26 answers
I have a problem with Ubuntu 13.04.
I cannot log in to my account. I put the right password but there is an endless loop. (if i put wrong pass, it says "Invalid password..."). Also, it doesnt show the small drop down menu with choices "Gnome fallback, Default, etc.."
If i login as guest, the desktop is clear, no bars, no menus, anything. Just right clicks works only.
I have already try this solution (
chown username:username .Xauthority ) but there is no "Xauthority" at ubuntu 13.04. (?)
Is the problem about lightdm?
Also, i tried
sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm but it soesn't work.
I use the recovery mode (root command shell or something like this) in order to try the above commands.
Has anyone a solution?
