The day before I run into the problem I had installed Virtual Machine and Vagrant and everything was fine. When I fired up my computer the next day, I got stuck in a login loop. My next action was go to the command line, easily log in and there was a README file. The file has this message:

     THIS DIRECTORY HAS BEEN UNMOUNTED TO PROTECT YOUR DATA.

     From the graphical desktop, click on:
     "Access Your Private Data"

     or

     From the command line, run:
     ecryptfs-mount-private

Well, then I run ecryptfs-mount-private and it requests me for a login passphrase. The problem is I never set that passphrase. Any idea on how to fix it?

  • Try the default blank passphrase. – Raman Sailopal Mar 29 '18 at 14:34

I changed the permission on your username folder in the home directory:

sudo chmod 755 {username_folder}

and i deleted the .Xauthority file and it worked.

`sudo rm .Xauthority`
