Thanks Bill, sorry for the delayed reply, just got off work...
Found a .xsession-errors file which says:
Script for ibus started at run_im.
Script for auto started at run_im.
Script for default started at run_im.
init: gnome-session (Unity) main process (2036) terminated with status 1
init: log-rotate main process (1920) killed by TERM signal
init: update-notifier-crash (/var/crash/_usr_bin_compiz.120.crash) main process (1966) killed by TERM signal
and so it goes on (I'm typing this out on my iphone with laptop balanced on my knees on the bus)
does that mean anything to anyone?
thanks heaps guys

I can get to a console login using ctrl+alt+f1 and then login with my normal username and password, but whenI attempt to login via the gui, the X seems to crash and then bounce me back to the login screen.
>> Has anyone else seen this problem? I've been googling for an answer- there was a suggestion that it might be related to permissions on my .Xauthority file, but my user already has ownership permissions on that file. Any thoughts on what might have gone wrong?
