After rebooting computer I can't log in to desktop as anything else than "root". If I try with my normal username and correct password the screen blinks and returns without any message or anything.
Q: How do I get back to the desktop as a normal user?
Here's what I did before this happened:
I'm using Intel onboard graphics and while browsing software in Synaptic I found the "xserver-xorg-video-intel" driver. It says:
"The use of this driver is discouraged if your hw is new enough (ca. 2007 and newer). You can try uninstalling this driver and let the server use it's builtin modesetting driver instead."
So I uninstalled it.
During the same session I also went to the terminal and ran Xorg -configure. And as SU I issued "startx" and ended up in a new GUI session for root, which I didn't really intended.
Before that I also tried to setmode 1920x1080 for my monitor, which failed and I had to accept 1600x1200
(Using Debian 8)
EDIT: Noticed now that if I at the Display Manager press CTRL+ALT+F1 and jump to terminal and log in as my usual user and issue: startx, nothing seems to happen, but hitting CTRL+C 4-5 times sends me into the desktop for my user. Logging out and trying to log in the normal way still doesn't work.
