He might want to know how to get there:

Hold down the Shift key during bootup, when the grub menu shows up
select Recovery Mode.

In what way are you not able to log in? What happens when you try?

What ways have you tried to get in? Does this issue also appear on
TTYs or only with LightDM (or whatever display manager you use)?

You can get into TTY1 by pressing CTRL + ALT + F1.

Patrick and all,

Yes, thank you all. That helped. Also, you guessed right, I'm new on
Ubuntu/Linux and am beginning to take my first steps. It seems to have
cleaned up memory. Is this something I must do regularly? Added problems
were that I lost mail as well as all my GE settings. I'd have to
re-install GE possibly.


I have loads of memory and disk space. It's not a problem. I believe I
need to learn how to work with memory so I don't have these problems again.


BTW, I know this is an Ubuntu list but has anyone tried Android for PCs
or iOS or OSX?

What do you mean "it seems to have cleaned up memory"?

You should not have to do anything with memory. Was it disk space you
ran out of? If so then what was it that consumed the space?

If you want to ask a question unrelated to the original problem it is
better to start a new thread. But as you say this may not be an
appropriate question for this list anyway.

This is a copy and paste.

I have loads of memory and disk space. It's not a problem. I believe I need
to learn how to work with memory so I don't have these problems again.

I'm re-writing this. I lost everything a few minutes ago – again. I believe there's a problem with Thunderbird. It was creating problems the first time around also. I was told to try cleaning memory. In the boot up process I clicked on an option where I could delete broken files, I think it was. It then freed some memory. This computer has 4 Gb of memory so it's not a problem. 100S of Gb of free disk space. I have a dual boot on this computer with Windows XP.
In the previous attempt to write and send out this message I was given several messages that Thunderbird couldn't save in temp storage. I'm writing this on LibreOffice...just in case. I'm also waiting for some message to appear again on Thunderbird to include it below.
I got two messages on LibreOffice as I work on it:
First: “There is no space left on device /home/nickbikkal/.config/libreoffice/3/user/backup/untitled_0.odt”
Second” “LibreOffice could not save important internal information due to insufficient free disk space at the following location:
/home/nickbikkal/.config/libreoffice/3/user/backup
You will not be able to conrinue working with LibreOffice without allocating more free disk space at that location.
Press the 'Retry' button after you have allocated more free disk space to retry saving the data.'
I closed Thunderbird and was able to save. In my original problem I also had Thunderbird open. That's when I lost my pin settings on GE.
I'm hoping you get this.

From the messages you have obviously run out of space in the partition
containing your Ubuntu /home directories. If you open a terminal and
type
df
It will show the space used and that available in each partition.

Colin, Jared and all who answered,

Thank you for the answers. Unfortunately a lot of this is past news. I
installed Ubuntu 12.04 about a month ago using Wubi. I had no luck
creating and installing Ubuntu using a live CD. I now have an option to
buy a copy at a local store.


I will now look to reinstalling Ubuntu and giving myself more disk
space, something I thought I had done before. Am I going to lose all my
settings and downloaded programs?


Thank you,
