Lightdm doesn't give any error message when .XAutority is owned by
Status in lightdm package in Ubuntu:
(Orignal problem at the end)
I understood the problem : As I had to sudo startx previously,
.XAutority was owned by root. So Lightdm wasn't able to log me in. But
Lightdm doesn't display any error message explaining why it can't log
me in, as there was previously in GDM.
HOW to reproduce : made root the owner of the .XAutority file at the
root of your personal home, then try to login via Lightdm. It doesn't
display any message but it doesn't log you.
---------------------Original problem :------------------------
So here is what happened : To test if an old bug with menus is still
present in Trusty I updated to it, but it went very wrong (no screen
at all, I filed this bug by going to recovery mode and FailsafeX). So
I tried installing Trusty "from scratch", but I kept my /home. I used
the same ID and Password during the installation as I do each
reinstall. Reinstall corrected the problem of no screen : I was on
lightdm login screen. Then, impossible to log me in : It tried and
immediately go back to login screen. I changed the password from tty1
but same problem. But I can open the guest session (from which I make
this bug report).
What I expected : To be able to login from lightdm as I do each time I
have to reinstall the system.
