$HOME/.dmrc file is being ignored solved Ubuntu

Did you install something that screwed up the permissions of your $HOME or did you change it? Boot into recovery mode from GRUB menu and at the prompt, do, assuming your log in name is xx.

Code:
sudo chmod 644 /home/xx/.dmrc
sudo chown xx/home/xx/.dmrc
sudo chmod -R 700 /home/xx
sudo chown -R xx/home/xx
You Reboot and see if you can log in again.

In case if you are getting the sudo: must be setuid root then check out the next post.
