View Full Version : Ubuntu Desktop Managers. Squirreled Permissions.

January 26th, 2017, 03:22 AM
I have really made a mess.

This started with somehow setting Gnome to root, not my user account.

In trying to figure out how to find the permissions for Gnome, then change them I managed to do something to squirrel the other desktop managers in the log in options / password screen.

Now none of them will take my password.

Now I have relearned how to boot into recovery mode.

But I do not have a clue what to do from here.

I do not want to create any more problems.

Could somebody help me with some step x step instructions how to clean up this mess?

I need Gnome back.
