Login loop problem

I am unable to login in my user name.
After typing ctrl+alt+f3.and entering login information.And trying to run ls -lah|grep -i Xauthority
Giving error
Command ls is available in the following places.
What to do?

There are several things that can lead to a loginloop.

  • Did you enable the Automatic Login Option?
  • Are you using an Nvidia GPU?

If the answer to the above is "no", start with the below.
I would recommend using terminal from the Recovery Menu rather than TTY.

In the recovery menu, first enable Networking.
Once that is done, arrow down to Root - drop to prompt.
From there, run (Since you are a Core User):

sudo apt install --reinstall zorin-os-desktop gdm3

Follow any prompts to configure GDM3...

Then run

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade

I am facing another issue after login there is a blank screen.

What graphics card(s) are you using?
