Hi ,
please open a terminal and post the output of


ls -l /home/username/.Xauthority

username = your username from corrupted account.

Thanks

I think where NikTh is going with this is that the file should be owned by you - if it becomes root-owned the easiest fix is to delete it


sudo rm /home/z3n/.XauthorityA new file (with the right ownership) will be created when you log in to the X session
