I was setting up my new ratel perfomance desktop and everything was going great when I had hit a snag when I added a new user to the machine. I've got system admin privileges and the new user has "standard" privileges.
The new users' name shows up on the login screen and her password is recognized, but each time when she logs in she is thrown back to the login screen. I tried to login using her password and got the same results. [Yes, neither she nor I misstyped the password]
What is curious is when I set up her up as new user and logged into her account the login went as expected. The problem started after I copied her home directory (backed up from an old machine running Ubuntu 9.10) over to the new machine using rsync. I copied my files from that same old machine using rsync, but in my case everything went as expected.
Any suggestions on how I can fix this?
