I wasnt allowed to read or Write to the users Home directory.
Since you are able to log in as root successfully
you have 2 options
Create a new user using above method.
Change permissions on the /home/user folder and all files so that you have full read write access.
The change permissions you can use the gui KDE? open your folder /home/user
select everything right click > Properties
Type your username in Owner
type Group as users
Set Access Permissions
Tick Apply to sub files and folders
or much easier method [swap username with your usename]
as root from a command line type
chown -R username:user /home/username
