Upgrade to 11.10, can't login to gui with Admin accounts

Asked by Ryan Foote on 2011-11-05

I just upgraded our Server to 11.1. At the gui I am presented with list of user accounts, I select one of the admin accounts I want to login to(I have tried a wrong password and am told it is wrong), but when I enter the correct account, it acts like it will login and just goes back to the login screen... any ideas? Thanks! btw- I can SSH and login just fine.

I can login to the gui as user "guest"

Maybe removing .Xauthority helps. Bug #871667
