    Hi all,
    Juno 5.0 here . suddenly I cannot login with my password.
    CTRL+ALT+F1 I could login with my password ok. Command startx could not open the xserver.
    result showed that x server is broken
    Did a dpkg-reconfigure lightdm but could not login either at the welcome screen ( wiggle-wiggle)
    startx gives error = xinit server error=
    then I get a " timeout in locking authority file " /.Xauthority
    How to rebuild the xserver ?

    Thank you for any help !!

    rm .Xauthority
    reinstalled greeter
