Hi, so my issue started with trying to install a flatpak, logged in as root in the terminal and did not logout after, closed laptop and when I went to get back on this morning it was stuck in the root account entirely upon booting. I logged out to the login screen and when i type in my user and password, it shows a black terminal-like screen for a few seconds and then goes back to the login screen, just keeps looping every time i try to log in unless i type the root user and password, then it opens the desktop but under root. I tried googling for a few hours now and havent been able to figure it out, im running sparky gameover edition on an old chromebook.

   Check this old thread. See, if it helps you solve the problem you are having.:

➤ Want to know how you can use a program you have never used before? "man" will be your best new friend! Type "man <pkg-name>" in a shell.
➤ Or, point your browser to "<pkg-name>" .... RTFM !!!
