[Solved] not able to login into xubuntu anymore

Hello,

I am not able to login into xubuntu anymore. After having typed my pw, i return to the login Window, but without a 'wrong password' message. I can login using the consol. This problem arose after i tried to solve à display problem of thé desktop : i typed "login" and "startxfce4".

any idea to help me?

Thank you

Alexandre

This sometimes happens if the .Xauthority or .ICEauthority files in your home directory are not owned by you but rather by root. I understand it has something to do with not properly running graphical applications as root or inadvertently running a user-based program as root. The fix is to delete these files from the text console before trying to log in graphically again. They will be properly re-created.
