I tried this, but had the same problem. I wasn't sure if I did
everything right, though, so I didn't mention it. Here's what I did:
chown kbennett3:kbennett3 /home/kbennett3
[Then try to log in to graphical login as kbennett3.]
No joy, though. Same problem.
However, there is an .xsession-errors file in the kbennett3 home
directory. It says:
Xsession: X session started for kbennett3 at [date/time]
open: Permission denied
What does this mean?
