I have multi-distros installed on my machine and following the installation of Freespire today I am now unable to log-in as user. Following the grub screen the screen goes blank. By using crtl,alt,del I can get to the gnome log-in but using the user name and password gives the following. User $home/.dmrc file is being ignored. This prevents the default session and language from being saved. Accepting that it then says that the session has been less than 10sec and the detail says the Refusing to initialise GTK+. I can log in as root. I am assuming that my home partition has been corrupted. Is there any alternative but to re-install Mint?
