I am running Kubuntu 13.10. Out of the blue, I am now unable to log in. I rebooted, (only changed the desktop background, didn't update any packages or anything) and was taken to the login splash screen as usual because I have automatic login enabled. However, the loading bar I set as the splash is stuck on this:

I tried restarting lightdm, and rebooting too, but those did nothing... It wouldn't be the graphics drivers, since I didn't mess around with them... How would I remedy this and get to a desktop?


I solved it by purging the kwin-effect-snow package which I had installed.
