This is what I used: sudo mv ~/.Xauthority ~/.Xauthority.backup sudo service lightdm restart

comment Can not get to login screen, background starts with terminal prompt only
Thank you, actually managed to get it back. I first uninstalled and reinstalled GRUB. Somehow the 2nd reboot I got in to the login. THEN it started going into the desktop, and kicking back out to login screen. But no terminal. Found some commands somewhere through google. Something to do with lightdm. Did that, rebooted, and I was back in. Ran updates, rebooted again, and it auto-logged right in. Thanks though!
