This question already has an answer here:

I am trying to access my ubuntu 14.04 LTS account but am unable to. I login and i get the same login screen again. I have tried all the solutions present in the links : 1.Can't login to Ubuntu 14.04 2.Ubuntu gets stuck in a login loop. I went to .Xsession-errors and saw an error which was not addressed in any of the links :

/etc/X11/Xsession.d/50_check_unity_support: line 7: 2731 Segmentation fault   (core dumped) /usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test

Looking for help. I do not use dual boot. I have tried every page solution available and none have matched my error or have been able to resolve it. I have tried to log into the guest session but it leads back to the login page.

  • You're superhuman if you tried all 37 answers in only 6 minutes and none of them worked. Don't ever touch Kryptonite. – karel Oct 18 '15 at 10:55
  • I have tried all the solutions in the last 5 hours and then i went on to post it as i was stuck. Indeed you should read comic books to research a phenomenon known as "presumption" – Satajeet Biswas Oct 18 '15 at 10:56

I recently encountered this problem after removing compiz. It solved by re-installing compiz via: sudo apt-get install compiz
