User login problem in Linux

Sometimes, when you try to login to linux, it will login and immediately logout... and show this message...

Your session only lasted less than 30 seconds. If you not have logged out yourself, this could mean that there is some installation problems or that you may be out of diskspace. Try logging in with one of the failsafe sessions to see if you can fix this problem.

Just click on "More details". It will most probably tell about issue with some file starting with . (dot). Normally it will be .ICEauthority.

To fix this issue, just login as root and rename this file (or delete it if you want). It will be in the home folder of the user.
