Check out the thread: Caught in the loop - you could prolly just REM font path element unix/:-1) :-) if all you need is to enter the desktop - then you can take your time to fix the fonts

Again, I think you should give changing root's name back to root a chance. It might work.


By the way, it is easier for all those who want to help you if you keep your topics in just ONE thread instead of scattering all around in different topics.

To change your root name back to root, you will need to edit your /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files. You can do this by typing vi /etc/passwd and vi /etc/shadow. To delete the name use the delete key and to insert text hit the i key once and type root. Then hit the escape key to exit out of insert mode. Then type :wq to exit and write to file. If you mess up and want to exit without saving, type :q!. Then you will need to logout and then log back in.
