since yesterday I am stuck in an infinite login loop for one of my users on Ubuntu 18.04. I can log in to another account but not the one I need to login to. I tried hours of different fixes from the web, but none of them worked. Among those are
- checking disk usage
- stopping and restarting the
chmod 755 $HOME
chmod a+rwx *to grant all users full access
- Creating an .Xauthority file
I noticed that there is no .Xauthority file for this specific user. Unfortunately creating an empty .Xauthority file couldn't help. This issue happened after installing ROS and executing
sudo apt-get update && upgrade.
My current version is 18.04.4 LTS and I believe this issue is connected to the update. However I am not sure what could be causing this.
I really appreciate any help and can elaborate more, if needed.
