Re: Blank screen after login
Try the following, it should show two files with ownership shown as your username.
If they show "root root" or permissions other than displayed below, that is your problem.
If so, rename or delete the offending file and reboot.
alan@alan-MS-7616:~$ ls -l /home/alan/.*authority # use your username for 'alan'
-rw------- 1 alan alan 30792 Nov 6 18:06 /home/alan/.ICEauthority
-rw------- 1 alan alan 57 Nov 6 18:06 /home/alan/.Xauthority

"Better Solutions may bring Worsened Problems": After Lao Tse, b. circa 405BC. a contemporary of Confucius, who died circa 600BC.
They did things differently in those days, apparently!!
