- Ubuntu gets stuck in a login loop 47 answers
This is a rather bizarre problem that I am experiencing. My Ubuntu 14.10 does not let me log in despite proper password. Here is what happens:
I try to log into my machine by entering the password. The password gets accepted, my laptop screen blinks, and brings me back to the login screen.
After having tried this many times I tried Guest Session. When I click on login in guest session, the same story repeats itself.
The only thing different from yesterday (when I could properly log in) is that I installed virtual box and Genymotion for Android development. Also, I made a simple change to
/etc/profile to have
genymotion in my path.
How do I solve this?
