GDM stopped allowing two users to log in - Linux Mint Daryna
I'm running Linux Mint Daryna on an Inspiron 1420, C2D w/2 GB RAM and Intel wireless/gfx. Installed fine and worked perfectly, up until the point where I changed the permissions as root on one of two normal accounts' home folders, such that the folder could be read and written to by anyone. After doing this, I logged out of the root account and attempted to log into the other normal user account; but after typing in the username and password, the entry field 'blinked' (best visual description I can give) and went back to asking me for my username again.
I can log into either account from the command line and start the X server (after removing /tmp/.x0-lock), but GDM refuses to log the two normal users in. I can still log in as root, and a user account I've created since logs in without any trouble. Has anyone here ever had this kind of problem before, or would know hot to fix it?
Thanks in advance.
