- your "/" or "/boot" partition are full. Do a check with df -h, if it is the case then clean out some useless stuff and do a reboot
- the lightdm or gdm is corrupted. Uninstall it completely with sudo apt-get purge gdm or sudo apt-get purge lightgdm, then reinstall with sudo apt-get install gdm. Select lightdm or gdm from the menu. (you might try lightdm first, if it still give problem, go with gdm)
- the desktop might have corrupted. If you are using XFCE4 like I do, continue with sudo apt-get purge xubuntu-desktop and sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop. Same method work for ubuntu-desktop.
