When I get to the login screen, I put my password, and I only get a black screen for 2 seconds, then we're back at the login screen. When I log in to the guest account everything works perfectly.
What I've tried;
I deleted .Xauthority as per instructions from elsewhere. No luck
I removed 2 lines I put in .profile. No change
Installed Gnome, but Unity, Unity 2D, various vers of gnome, same thing.
according to other q/a's, this could be caused by lack of disk space. I have 80 gigs free, so I would assume it's not that
if I Ctrl+Alt+F2 at login, I can login in to my account in the "terminal" with no problem.
I would really appreciate any help to restore my account, and thank you very much beforehand
