After reinstalling Ubuntu 17.10 I am forced into a login loop When I run journalctl -xe i get failed to open directory /home/"myusername"/.config/systemd/user , ignoring: Permission denied

Thanks in advance.

  • I know nothing about your error, but can you login via a terminal? if you can i'd chown (change ownership) of the file to your $USER (username). if you can't login as you, login as root and do it. if you can't login as root; i'd boot a live distro, mount your disk & do it from that environment (using $UID which I assume is 1000 instead of your $USER username). – guiverc Jan 4 '18 at 1:41
  • Maybe you can try this, different GNU Linux distro, but same error message and SOLVED: Stuck in a login loop – galoget Jan 4 '18 at 3:10

I am answering this for people who may have similar problems it appears to be .ICEauthority chown it and problem solved same as @guiverc said
