i had the same problem.
It seemed that there was a problem in the file /home/pi/.Xauthority that was blocked by something and was not unblocked after usage.
that helped for me:
stop Xserver or login as root and execute:
Code: Select all
cp /home/pi/.Xauthority /home/pi/.Xauthority_backup
to keep the old one as backup
and confirm that you want to remove the blocked file.
A new file .Xauthority is created automatically after the next startx.
same problem was here:
