I installed Xubuntu 18.04 a few weeks back. Sometimes when I log in, I'll end up right back at the login screen. After two or three log in attempts, I finally get through to the desktop.
Tonight, it's gotten worse. no matter how many times I log in, I end up back at the login screen. TTY logins (Ctrl+Alt+F1) work successfully. I can also access the account in GUI mode using Chrome Remote Desktop.
I created another account and it does successfully log in to that account, but I'd like to repair the original account so that I don't lose all the configuration work I've done over time.
lxde-desktop and logging in with that (not
lxde-qt) allows me to log in normally.
What I've tried:
- checked ownership of
.ICEauthority, which were owned by the correct user instead of
- purged and reinstalled
