Ubuntu login loop .Xauthority

If you are trying to login to your system and you get kicked off from it a possible reason could be the .Xauthority file. You can check by open a terminal and typing:

ls -lah

.Xauthority file should belong to the user trying to authenticate

chown username:username .Xauthority

That perhaps will solve eventually the problem.
