My problem is whenever I type user name and password; kali linux keep asking me again and again the username and password. I can’t get in to the system. However I can login in text mood in different tty by pressing ctrl+alt+f2.

I had Kali-Linux-2016.1-vm-amd64 installed in my VMware.

I wanted to upgrade Kali Linux to 2016.2 version.

So I opened the terminal and typed as below-

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Everything went fine and upgraded then system asked a reboot. I rebooted the system then I faced a problem which denied me to login into kali linux and popped up with this message below-

"Oh no! Something has gone wrong." and "A problem has occurred and the system can't recover. Please log out and try again."

I fixed this problem by using these commands

apt-get update
apt-get install x-window-system
apt-get install xorg

Then my Login GUI screen appeared but whenever I type user name and password kali linux keep asking me again and again the username and password. I can’t get in to the system. However I can login in text mood in different tty by pressing using ctrl+alt+f2.

Watch the problem in video I’ve uploaded in YouTube

Please suggest me a solution!

Maybe it's happening because your display manager got corrupted somehow.

Try to reinstall lightdm and see if it works.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get remove lightdm
sudo apt-get install lightdm
sudo apt-get upgrade -f
