I am unable to login to Ubuntu in the GUI interface using my username. It keeps returning to the login page once I enter the password. I can however login as a guest.
I had just manually installed Ubuntu 14.10 with a 500mb partition for
/boot, a 2gb partition for swap, a 30gb partition for
/, 50mb for EFI as a logical partition, 100gb for
/home and 3 other logical partitions of 100 GB each which were given
/f mount points respectively. If otherwise unspecified, all partitions were primary.
Device for installing Ubuntu was the entire hard disk.
I had to specify that at boot up that the EFI was to be turned off.
I could login normally after that. I then turned on the options for
automatically mount for each of the 100gb hard disk partitions. I restarted my laptop after that and now I am unable to login.
