~/xsession -errors-file."

can anyone out here help me out?.


It happens due to the overflow of user's .xsession-errors file

you can check your by logging in CLI mode

#cat /home/user/.xsession-errors
either you can delete the entry in this file but I won't suggest you that

If you wish you can create a link of the error file to null file

#ln -s /dev/null   /home/user/.xsession-errors
