So i'm running 13.10.

For some reason i do not remember i have a keystore in a directory in my home. It appears that lightdm uses that keystore during login.

So if i move the directory i am unable to login.

xsession-errors says that lightdm-session can't open that file (obviously since i moved it)

Now i really want to move away that directory so i wish to tell lightdm the new location but i am unable to find the configuration files that contains that information.

the output from xsession-error is

/usr/sbin/lightdm-session: 24: .: Can't open Copy/keystore/keystore_env

as you can see is not a standard directory, probably i got asked where to put that file but i can't recall on which occasion

a similar error is given by bash when i login to the console but at least i can login that way

Which keystrore did you move, .local/share/keyrings/user.keystore? Could you please add to your question the exact output of xsession-errors? –  Sylvain Pineau Apr 4 '14 at 14:40
