I'm having the same exact issue as OP. I've done my research, yet only two relevant articles are pulled up on Google - and this is one of them.
In both instances, people commonly advise to do X or Y through the tty, but I can't even pull up a tty! So if I'm stuck on the Login/Shutdown screen loop, how do I open a terminal(hotkeys, of course. I've tried ctrl+alt+F1/F2/F3, ctrl+alt+t), or do you have any other ways of me gaining access to my Pi oncemore, and delete the new usr I've added? Thanks a ton!
After I wrote this, I got stuck on the loop. Please don’t make my mistake.
$ sudo nano /etc/rc.local
>> add command befor “exit 0” in the script
$ su –pi –c ‘/user/bin/vncserver :1’
>> Cnrl X and save by y
For solving it:
First, you must access the command line. Putty worked for me. Just make sure, you use a local network and port 22. You need to just check the Pi’s IP address by accessing your router. For your router, Check your gateway and write it on your browser. It will show you all the IP address based on the different router which is connected to your router. Please check your router to find it. There is some tutorial on how to use Putty.
After connecting to command line, I tried “sudo chown” and it worked for me, but I faced some other troubles after that, and I didn’t have a taskbar, etc. But I could fix it as follows. I explain it after “sudo chown”. I tried this.
https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/q ... cant-login
reset permissions on your home folder (Maybe, it is better to follow the second command instead of this one):
$ sudo chown -R pi /home/pi
(Specifically, the .Xauthority file may have the incorrect permissions. In this case, you may only need
to correct the issue as follows.)
$ sudo chown pi:pi .Xauthority
Problem: After that, I couldn’t see anything on my screen with HDMI cable. For solving it, I update and upgrade raspberry pi.
$ sudo apt-get update & sudo apt-get upgrade
$ sudo reboot
I solved the HTMI problem. Still, I couldn’t see any taskbar.
I don’t think the following commands were helpful for me, but I followed it.
Maybe, some configuration files have been overwritten and some changes have been lost.
To update an existing Jessie image, type the following at the command line:
$ sudo apt-get install -y rpi-chromium-mods
$ sudo apt-get install -y python-sense-emu python3-sense-emu
$ sudo apt-get install -y python-sense-emu-doc realvnc-vnc-viewer
$ cd .config/lxpanel/LXDE-pi/panels/
$ sudo nano (hit the tab button)
The following step worked for me. I tried as follows.
Raspbian Missing Menu Bar: https://www.kirkmakse.com/raspberry-pi- ... -menu-bar/
$ sudo rm -r ~/.config/lxpanel
$ sudo reboot
And That’s it. Hope works for you.
