- Can't login to my user account 1 answer
Last night, i was working on the computer normally, and then i want to turn it off, so my first problem was when i press the power button upper-right, it opens the box but tiny and empty
so i thought that after reboot everything will be fine, so i actually opened Terminal and typed :
and shutdown told me what are the options i selected :
shutdown -P 1
after one minute, the HDD got busy for about 5 seconds and everything shutdown, i meant not normal shutdown, in the normal shutdown, he closes the programs, then close gnome and terminate all remaining process and shutdown.
but here nothing closed, simple everything is off i thought also that i choosed wrong shutdown option and i didnt worried about it
the next night, i turned on my PC and i was extremely surprised! my user account is deleted! plus the background and other setting are back to default, but not sure if all settings resetted cause the wifi still connects automaticlly
and now im writing this question on my ubuntu signed in as guest
also, the login button still available, but it requires username and the password, im very sure i type them correctly but he says wrong!
so the only way i can access my ubuntu is guest, and i have no permission to do everything, and also, my user Folder is still available in /home/yousef/ (yousefs is my username) however, i cant access him due permission issues
please help i really appreciate everything, i cant loose my os, im learning C programming and i made a lot of projects!!
moreover, i thing my account was deleted before reboot.
Summery : after reboot, ubuntu was fully resetted and my account was deleted!!
Installed ubuntu 13.04, dual-boot with windows 8
