This might sound noobish, but, I wanted to change my username and password of my computer(ubuntu 12.4 I think) I changed the password, and it worked, I changed the username - and it worked, so I logged out and tried to log back in, but every time I enter the new password, the computer goes to a black screen for a sec, then goes back to the log-in page,
the only way I can login is by going in with guest. and I can't delete anything because I don't have permission
mount -o remount,rw / cd /home ls -al
this is the output:
total 16 drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 mar 18 09:03 . drwxr-xr-x 23 root root 4096 mar 18 09:49 .. drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 mar 18 09:03 .ecryptfs dr-x------ 3 itay itay 4096 mar 18 09:09 itay
so i did this: mount -o remount,rw / cd /home chmod u+w itay
mount -o remount,rw / cd /home/itay mv .Xauthority .Xauthority.backup
now it logged in to my user, but i can login in terminal, what can i do?
