Can't login as user after reboot

Briefly describe your issue below:
After reboot, I cannot log in as my user. I can log in as root. The screen flashes like it accepted the password then kicks me right back to the login screen.

I have checked the /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files and both look fine.

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version (e.g. 4.6), edition(e.g. Home//KDE/OVA, etc.), and architecture (currently we only support amd64)
Parrot GNU/Linux 4.7

What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)
Standard from thumb drive

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)

This happened after I rebooted while tring to install GNS3 last night. The errror I was getting from that was about psutil. But I don’t think that it has anything to do with being able to log in?

Can’t roll back psutil; was not uninstalled
Command “/usr/bin/python3 -u -c “import setuptools, tokenize;file=’/tmp/pip-install-jw1tgbja/psutil/’;f=getattr(tokenize, ‘open’, open)(file);’\r\n’, ‘\n’);f.close();exec(compile(code, file, ‘exec’))” install --record /tmp/pip-record-f_o3kzjx/install-record.txt --single-version-externally-managed --compile” failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-install-jw1tgbja/psutil/

Thanks ina advance.

I was able to fix this issue before the post was approved.

For some reason, .xAuthority was set to root:root under my user home folder.

I found this out by looking at the /var/log/user.log files. I saw an error that said .xAuthority permission denied. I went to /home/user, and did an ls -al and saw it was root:root. Once I chown the file to the proper user:group, I was able to log back in.

Not sure why this file got changed in the first place. But solved now.
