    I'm not sure what's going on then. If time spent on this is of any importance, you might want to save time and simply reinstall to see if that helps. If not, you can continue to troubleshoot the problem as is.

    Check folders in /home. Whenever one creates a new user, system creates a <user_id> folder under /home by default. There are a few exceptions though.
    Code:
    ls /home
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    You could also get an idea of what user accounts are set up by going to a terminal/konsole and running the command:

    Code:
    cat /etc/group
    Let us know how it goes.
