This question already has an answer here:
I use elementary freya. 3.16.0-77-generic 14.04.1 ubuntu. when I installed my laptop, i used the coded home folder. so now I have the following problem; I can't login in the GUI. My laptop was running perfect with freya. Today I wanted to choose a new password for my account by using the system settings úsers'icon for it. that seemd to work. after i rebooted my machine for another reason, I was stucked! I wanted to do the Xauthority procedure.....but I have no normal home folder. My home folder has no .Xauthority file, only codes in every subfolder I look. When I choose ctrl- alt- F2, I see the console mode. And I can login with my new password. So the password is correct...
Can someone help me? only choose a new password to get this trouble. I feel very sorry now i have chosen a coded home partition during installation. I can't solve it if there is a Xauthority problem since that is coded to.
- console login works with the new password. (text modus)
- at the welcome screen not.
