[SOLVED] Crash on login from lightdm (Ubuntu 12.04)

http://ubuntuforums.org – Finally managed to figure out why I couldn't log into my account from the greeter, but all the other users could. Every time I logged in it went to the text console for half a second or so, then straight back to the greeter again. No interesting logs anywhere: not /var/log/Xorg.0.log, not ~/.xsession-errors, not anything else in /var/log, /var/log/lightdm, or /var/crash. It just looked like I went into the X session then immediately exited, with no errors. Solution: my ~/.Xauthority file was owned by root:root and chmod'd r---------. Oops! I deleted it (via sudo) along with two other .Xauthor (Hardware)
