I am running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and whenever I try to log in using my main account, it kicks me back to log in screen. My other accounts don't do this however. I also tried to read .xsessions-errors using cat but it would output

gpg-agent[7156]: failed to run the command: No such file or directory

I can also log in my main account with tty. How can I fix it so I can log into my main account again?

Deleting .Xauthority didn't help either –  Zachary Alfakir Oct 17 '13 at 22:02
