Unable to login to Ubuntu 16.04. I had issue of getting only blank desktop screen earlier for which I ran below commands given in other thread to resolve the issue.

sudo rm -fr ~/.cache/compizconfig-1
sudo rm -fr ~/.compiz

sudo rm -fr ~/.Xauthority
sudo rm -fr ~/.config/autostart

sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop unity compizconfig-settings-manager upstart

sudo dconf reset -f /org/compiz/
setsid unity

But the blank desktop issue didn't resolve. I restarted the system in hope that after restart blank issue might go. But now I can't login to my admin account. Always it looped back to login screen asking for password to log. Are all my files gone? How can I login back to my admin account?
