[kde-linux] Problem logging in as non-root user [SOLVED]

The distro I am using has been created by me referencing LFS/BLFS books.
The home directory got created when I used the useradd command. So , no , it did not exist before I created the new user.

I have seen so many posts where this particular issue was discussed , but none seemed to provide any concrete answer!

Hope that helps!

Let me know if you need additional information!

Neeraj, this could be valuable information to others, so please tell us which 
distro it is.  Also, if you have any other relevant information such as 
whether your /home existed before from another distro, or whether you have 
installed the same distro on another machine with or without that problem.
