I tried making a Ubuntu VM using VirtualBox twice already using version 14.04.3 on Windows 10, but both times I am ran into a login loop, where it looks like it will log me in, but does not. This is happening both for my user account and for the guest account. I have looked into some fixes, like this one: Stuck in a login loop, Ubuntu gets stuck in a login loop

but none of the fixes worked (everything with .Xauthority looked fine, rebooting didn't help, etc.)

Do you have any suggestions to fix this problem?

  • I tried everything on there, and nothing worked :( – Alexander Whatley Sep 24 '15 at 17:34
  • No, I tried everything on there before I asked this question.... – Alexander Whatley Sep 24 '15 at 17:37
  • Look, I'm sorry man, I'm new to this forum, and I edited the question now. – Alexander Whatley Sep 24 '15 at 17:39

Just FYI, I solved this problem by switching to the 64 bit of Linux from the 32 bit. I guess this was a bug confined to the 32 bit version.
