I installed Tex Live in my system. The program suggested that I have a low space and So I removed some files to make space for it. After that I had to force shutdown for nothing was working. Then when I restarted again I am unable to log in into my main account. I can although log in into the guest account.

What should I do now??

Thanks for the help!!

  • What version of Ubuntu are you using? (Lubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.04, Kubuntu 14.10, etc.) Are you connected to internet? – wb9688 Aug 26 '15 at 13:06

    Yeah, it's asking for your user's password. After sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop, can you change the root password with sudo passwd root and try to log in as root in the desktop manager? – wb9688 Aug 26 '15 at 13:21
