Raspbian Login Loop with No Prompt

If you’ve confirmed the username and password definitely work, but login is looping.

SSH to the computer.

Run ls -lah.

If in the output the line you get:

-rw-------  1 root root   53 Nov 29 10:19 .Xauthority

then you need to do sudo chown username:username .Xauthority and try logging in.
