After initial setup, having created some user accounts with the encrypted home option, I did a command line passwd change. This seems to cause the login password to no longer function as the decryption requires since the GUI returns - Could not update .ICEauthority (Logout). I have my hexadecimal mount passphrase and am able to get to a point where ecryptfs-recover-private successfully mounts files to a /tmp directory but filenames are not discernable to me. Can someone please tell me step-by-step directions to bring said user account back to normal working order?
Note: I've lost root access as well though have additional administrator accounts with sudo privileges.
P.S. I think the command line password change may not update something to do with PAM thereby causing my problem?¿?
