Ubuntu won't log in, gets stuck in lightdm with the words "Logging in" being displayed on screen
Like the title says, sometimes, after inputting my password into lightdm to log in, Ubuntu refuses to log in. Instead, it gets stuck on lightdm, with the words "Logging in..." being displayed. They never go away and the computer never logs in.
The only fix appears to be to restart the computer as a whole and just try again. It appears to happen randomly.
