I just fixed an issue with a login loop, using this solution. So now I can log into my account again, but the home directory looks empty. I can see my old folders (Documents, Pictures, PycharmProjects etc) when I do
cd /home/tmp/ && ls, but the folders don't appear graphically in my file system nor in /home/ when I try to list them. I tried moving them from tmp to home and I tried copying, but they remain invisible. How do I get the normal filesystem back? I'd rather not fix this by trial and error, that's why I ask it here.
I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 with a 5.3.0-28-generic kernel on a Dell Vostro 5590 laptop (only a few months old). It's not dual booted, I removed Windows.
