    Login loop on Ubuntu 17.04 Zesty

    Freshly installed (3 days ago) I only started having this issue today. I followed the advise to log-in using TTY and did
    `mv .Xauthority .Xauthority.bak`

    It worked for the first log-in, but on the next attempt to log-in this "tactic" stopped working.

    I have after followed different advice from the following threads:
    1. Purge and re-install Nvidia (https://askubuntu.com/questions/7599...e-console-logi)
    2. Purge and re-install lightdm (http://www.linuxslaves.com/2016/05/3...ogin-loop.html)
    3. Do `mount -o rw,remount /` from recovery mode and then `reboot` (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Li-rTbyJLXc)
    4. Change ownership on all files in my home directory (multiple sources)


    Obviously nothing worked (otherwise why would I be writing it). Can you please advise on the fix?

    Thank you

    I would try disabling Secure Boot on the BIOS settings. That's what has worked for me.
