I installed 10.10 yesterday and everything worked just fine. Today I can't login for some reason. After having entered the correct password (I also tried to type in the wrong password to see the difference) I just get back to where I started, i.e. the login window.

I have a Nvidia GTS 250 card installed. I have tried to login with another driver ("nv") instead of Nvidias, but there is no difference (apart from bad resolution at the login window and more fan noise). I tried to run
sudo nvidia-xconfig
but there was no difference.I can only login via the console.

What can I do about this? I have not installed any weird packages, but only packages from the standard repos.

Thanks.
