I'm trying to follow the linked solution to fix my loggin loop problem. I logged in to the tty but it doesn't respond to any command. When I type enter it just breaks the line, regardless of what I've just typed.

Ubuntu gets stuck in a login loop

I'm not sure if it is just my lack of regular shell knowledge or some deeper issue. Thanks!

Edit: The tty prompt gets my login and password successfully, but everything I typed after that would behave like a long string entry (enter breaking lines).

    Sounds like your tty settings are messed up. Type ^C^C^C to get back to your (invisible) shell prompt, then type stty sane. – waltinator Feb 21 at 16:44
