I am running Xubuntu 12.04. I installed dogecoind and made a new user called dogecoin. My first user, james, used to be the only one. It used to be set to auto log in. Now I have a choice between my two users and guest. If I try to login as james the screen flashes black and resets, then sends me back to login. I can still login fine with the others.

I can login to james through SSH where I tried to reset my x config files. It didn't seem to help.

sudo aticonfig --adapter=all -f --initial

It says:

No protocol specified
No protocol specified
Uninitialised file found, configuring.
Using `/etc/X11/xorg.conf`
Saving back-up to /etc/X11/xorg.conf.fglrx-6

pacman -Qi linux says:

No protocol specified
No protocol specified
no display possible

I am trying to use two graphics cards, but I can't even login!

Delete the file ~/.Xauthority from user's home folder.

Also try to delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Re-install xorg
