    Unable to login to new user after creation in kali

    So I installed a new version of kali (2019.4). I want to add a user such that I can use the OS on non-root mode. It shows up as a user in the etc/passwd. But when I try to switch users (via the logout button in start) it will not allow me to do so. I flash black and then brings me to the login page. I can switch users in terminal however. I also changed the ID as I heard there was a min. of being a value of 1024.
    What I have typed:
    88 useradd -m jarvis
    89 passwd jarvis
    90 usermod -a -G sudo jarvis
    91 chsh -s /bin/bash jarvis
    92 cat /etc/passwd
    93 usermod --uid jarvis 2000
    94 usermod jarvis --uid 2000

    Can you post the output of:~/.xsession-errorsgrep 'jarvis' /var/log/auth.logand log of your display-manager as well?
