You could have still startd the programs with their full path, for example /usr/bin/vim. Since most programs didn't work for you, you could have checked packages.ubuntu.com for their paths: http://packages.ubuntu.com/trusty/amd64/nano/filelist Alternatively you could have booted into recovery mode and opened a shell there I guess.

I just managed to solve my problem, this is how. I did not have a LiveUSB Linux so I rebooted with my Windows partition. I then installed ext2fsd on Windows and was able to read my partition with Ubuntu. I corrected the erroneous $PATH$ (I had made an mistake in the file \etc\environment) and rebooted.

I've found that in some cases the input language is set to Hebrew even though it shows a "EN" icon in the gnome systray, hitting the input language changer sequence does nothing visibly but when I enter the password again it works.

sudo chown $USER:$USER $HOME was the problem for me. I had set up a home partition with: sudo mkdir /home/$USER but forgot to chown it.

The default Ubuntu login screen is called lightdm. Chances are it's still installed, so you can just do sudo dpkg-reconfigure lightdm to re-select it. If it isn't installed, just run sudo apt-get install lightdm and then the command above.

I realize this is a late response (like, years late) but I thought I would go ahead and put something here for anyone else having the same issues. I see this issue all the time. This is just one way to do it that is easy to script and deploy. Keep in mind this is an inelegant solution that is similar to this one: How do I create a popup banner before ...

Possible cause: the file you want to use as a background is not readable by 'others'. Check the access rights of the file: > ls -l total 21552 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1320 dec 5 2002 your_image It should have 'r' permissions for the group 'other' (as is the case here).

I had the same problem after installing Gnome desktop. I think its because these "themes" call for background from different places. What I did: went to /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme found the .png file that was my background (for me it was noise-texture.png) replaced that file with a background of my liking (keeping "noise-texture.png" name) For you ...
