View Full Version : [ubuntu] Was playing with XrandR, now can't login to my profile :(

August 13th, 2012, 05:43 AM
Long story short, I was messing around with XrandR and creating a few custom screen resolutions - a couple well beyond the native res of my monitor (was testing something). I had read that all these changes would be lost on next reboot, and would only stick around if I edited the LightDM/X.org config files and added it myself there.

That's why I thought it was safe - but no such thing :(

What happens now is, Ubuntu 12.04 just throws me back to the login screen regardless of the DE I choose (Gnome 3, Gnome classic, Classic with no effects, Unity) none of them work - which means my profile, or rather stuff related to display in my profile, is buggered.

Luckily, I had created another User a while ago, and I'm able to log-in using that account. Which means I should be able to recover my profile somehow - and I need help. I tried this fix here, but it didn't work : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=12036406#post12036406

Please help me recover my main user profile :(

No-one knows?
