I'm using Ubuntu 14.04. While updating TeXLive I changed the PATH in an obviously wrong way. Now I can't log in: when I enter the correct password it comes back to the log in page.
I connected on
tty1 using CTRL+Alt+F1. I got the error message
compaudit:105: command not found: getent
The error probably comes from PATH as
returns only the path to texlive. The problem is I cannot edit any file since no commands are recognized (
How can I overcome this? Any help appreciated as I am completely stuck.
