    lightdm login leads to a wrong environment

    This login problem appeared this morning.

    My favorite environment is gnome-classic (with effects). I can't use it any longer !
    When I choose the environment on the login screen, here is what happens:

    When I choose===================> it logs
    --------------.................................................. .... ---------------
    Ubuntu======================> Unity 2D ou 3D (depends on ?)
    Ubuntu 2D===================> Unity 2D
    Gnome Classic (without effects) => OK. Gnome Classic (without effects)
    Gnome Classic================> Unity 2D

    weird !

    I then created another user and I can log in normally for this user, but it is impossible to do it for my main user.

    Here are the results of commands:

    ls /usr/share/xsessions
    -----------------------
    gnome-classic.desktop gnome-fallback.desktop ubuntu-2d.desktop
    gnome.desktop gnome-shell.desktop ubuntu.desktop

    cat /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
    -----------------------------
    [SeatDefaults]
    user-session=ubuntu
    greeter-session=unity-greeter
    autologin-user=

    cat ~/.dmrc
    ------
    [Desktop]
    Session=gnome-fallback

    cat OtherUser/.dmrc
    ---------------
    [Desktop]
    Session=gnome-classic

    cat '/var/lib/AccountsService/users/boss'
    -----------------------------------------
    [User]
    XSession=gnome-fallback
    XKeyboardLayouts=
    Background=/usr/share/backgrounds/Twilight_Frost_by_Phil_Jackson.jpg

    I tried to replace "gnome-fallback" by "gnome-classic" in ~/.dmrc and '/var/lib/AccountsService/users/boss', but it returns to gnome-fallback.

    What can I do ?
