    My PATH + unbuntu is broken

    Hello,

    I was stuck in a log in loop so I used alt+crtl+f3 to log in. Then the path was broken so I used "export PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games" to reset the path I do not have a .Xauthority so I just ran "startx" to launch the desktop. The first thing the desktop is not exactly the same and no icon on the file explorer only name.

    So I decide to use boot-repair and I got that http://paste.ubuntu.com/p/gdNysYHCRb/




    After the reboot, I was stuck again on the log in a loop so I did the same thing to log (PATH was not modified) even after I ran (source /etc/environment)




    But nothing has changed Please Help me

    Moved to New to Ubuntu, restored original font/color and removed image tags as it is a larger image

    The password loop seems to be fairly common lately. Here is a solution from the web that doesn't mess up your system at all. It says lost password but works to stop the password loop also. You can use the same password you had originally. I hope someone will fix this bug.

    That threw me at first too. Basically after the edit grub just look for the entry

    Code:
    ro   quiet splash $vt_handoff
    then carefully delete that text and replace it with

    Code:
    rw init=/bin/bash
    then follow the other steps

    This may be an easier path to try:
