I'm getting this error when I try to log in to my Ubuntu session:

Your session only lasted less than 10 seconds. If you have not logged out yourself, this could mean that there is some installation problem or that you may be out of diskspace. Try logging in with one of the failsafe sessions to see if you can fix this problem

  • I forgot to metion that i am running 12.04.2 LTS May 15 '13 at 19:50

Try in a terminal to run this command: :

mv ~/.config ~/.config-old

Then logging out and logging back in.

Or, maybe this post can be helpful for you.
