When I boot Ubuntu I can see the mouse cursor at the login screen but once I put my password is see this error
could not acquire name on session bus I tried to Google the error but all I find is stuff on VNC and I don't use VNC. I do have Teamviewer if that matters.
After the error message I get the desktop but the mouse cursor is invisible.
I'll explain how I got here. I wanted to upgrade to 13.10 to see if my recon3d sound card would work. But when I tried to upgrade I got could not calculate the upgrade and then the update software would close. I read an article saying I needed to run the following command before so I did.
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
While it was running the PC froze and had to do a hard reset. After that I couldn't boot I was getting an error saying something about filesystem and failed to mount. I fixed that by googling the error. But then I got news problems. First I was getting unable to load session Ubuntu. I got around that somehow by reinstalling some things like desktop-ubunut, xorg, etc but now I'm at this point where in lightdm it boots and I get low graphics mode then the error message could not acquire name on session bus and the invisible mouse cursor. My googling my issue I found stuff about the greeter and something about renaming Xauthority to .old which I did but not sure what to do now or what to try.
I don't know how to rollback to 13.04 or if it would help. I would like to reinstall everything but can't without losing my 2TB of movies. I use 4 500GB HDDs in Raid 0 for a total of 2TB. I read you could reinstall Ubuntu over itself but that tells me it will delete everything even if I didn't check format. I heard you could reinstall Ubuntu package by package but dunno how to do that. Please help me!
