Login loop problem in Ubuntu 14.04.1

After not being able to login to my Unity Desktop in Ubuntu 14.04.1, I have tried a lot of possible fixes for "Ubuntu Login Loop" problem. None of them helped.

My /var/log/lightdm/x-0-greeter.log contains a single warning entry:
 ** (lightdm-gtk-greeter:2580): WARNING **: Failed to load user image: Failed to open file '/home/gate/.face': No such file or directory

(Where gate is username)

After awhile, I have found this to be a potential bug:

The end solution I have used:
Created new user account using sudo adduser command and continued using the new account!
