Installed 12.04 LTS on an Aspire One 722 yesterday. Added a bunch of programs and now I cannot logon. Guest account works to log in but after entering my password for the main account the computer locks. I am at a loss. Anyone have any ideas?

Can you Ctrl+Alt+F1 to a command line and login that way? If you can manage that, it suggests that there is something corrupt in your home that is stopping the GUI from starting as it should.

What did you install? What else might you have done, such as starting a GUI application that needs root permissions using sudo instead of gksu or gksudo.
