I have 12.04 on my machine, and after a shut down and a restart I haven't been able to log into the GUI, after entering my password, it switches back to the GUI and does not accept it.
I've tried the following:
- Ctrl+Alt+F1, login via tty1 - worked fine, so the password and user works
- tried to remove the
.Xauthorityfile - does not exist
- tried to restart the
lightdm- no change, still cannot log in
- tried to install the
gdm, but no apt-get command works, it fails to connect to the required web address
- tried the
sudo chown -R $user:$user /homecommand, still cannot log in
Do you have any suggestions what can I do?
