Unable to login into Xfce after renaming user [Solved]

Postby m.reza » Thu Mar 27, 2014 20:59

Hello, everybody
I renamed my account using "usermod". I couldn't login to fluxbox at first, but it was only about changing "/home/oldusername" to "~". At first, only conky showed up after logging into Xfce. But now that I removed Xfce config files hoping I could fix it, I can't go further than LightDM.

I do have fluxbox working like before. But I really need Xfce. How do I make it work again?
Any idea is highly appreciated.

I didn't make it through the former. I made a new user account and copied all the files from oldhome. Just trying to make a user account took me almost 2 hours - with studies and stuff about it, because it didn't work at first. But now I'm going on with the new user account.
