Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have tried removing the .Xauthority file

And also tried chown -R $USER:$USER $HOME and reboot.

Also tried a few other tricks given on most forums but to no avail.

What is the problem here?
