[Bug 1366209] Re: Returned to the greeter screen when logging in.


Sorry to hear that, Abby - your installation seems to be in a bad shape.
You probably need some support on how to fix your Ubuntu installation,
and since this is a bug report, it's not the right place for doing that.
We haven't even confirmed yet that there is a bug.

I would suggest that you seek help at e.g. http://askubuntu.com/

  Returned to the greeter screen when logging in.

Status in lightdm package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  If I log in as Guest or root, I can get into the account.  However, if
  I use my normal user account, I just get returned to the login screen.
  If I use gdm as my desktop manager, I can get to my user account.
