That's very frustrating. Thank you for sharing that with us. Is there anything you wish to ask or wish to add?

On a similar problem I had with Ubuntu 12.04LTS this is what I did

sudo chown -R $USER:$USER $HOME
Hit enter, type my password and hit enter again.
Then log out and press Alt+F7 to log out and log back in with my original user and it worked fine.
Here is the link to the full thread

Good luck to you
