SUSE :: Unable To Login Under User Account - Call To Lnusertemp Failed (temporary Directories Full?)

Oct 3, 2008

After a reboot, I am unable to login under my user account (mike). I am only able to login as the root user. I am running OpenSuse 11.0, KDE 4.1.2. This is a recent installation (about 2 weeks ago) and everything has been normal until today. When I installed the OS I created my user account "mike" with the password to be the same as the root user. I had also disabled the login screen so that I would automatically be logged in. There is no "login failed" message, I just do not move pass the login screen. If I purposefully type the wrong password, I then get a "login failed" message.

I have gone into Yast under my root account and changed the password for my user account. I still had the same problems - unable to get pass the login screen. I also created a second user and when I login as the second user, I do get pass the login screen only to see a black screen with a message box in the upper left corner that says: "Call to lnusertemp failed (temporary directories full?). Check your installation."

Slackware :: Call To Lnusertemp Failed (temp Directories Full)?

Aug 4, 2010

I had a fresh install of Slackware 13.1 up and running. I was looking to use an app which could only run on a gnome distro. So I installed gnomeslackbuild. Ran into dependency hell so I gave up the ghost and decided to reinstall.Re-install resulted in a message "Call to lnusertemp failed(temporary directories full).Had this before a different machine and sorted with another install at the time.Tried this but it keeps coming up with the same message. (4 installs later).Quote:

xset: bad font path element (#23) possible causes are:
Directory does not exist or has wrong permissions
Directory missing fonts.dir

OpenSUSE Install :: Call To Lnusertemp Failed?

Dec 11, 2010

I've hit a problem with KDE when doing an update. I get an error when logging in:

"call to lnusertemp failed"

I've cleared out the /tmp files, set my tmp files to be deleted on reboot, tried creating a new user, renamed .kde4 to .kde4~old....no luck.

I think that the best solution is to completely remove KDE and then re-install it. How do I do that? Alternatively, if anyone has a better solution, I'll try that.

Slackware :: Upgraded To 13.1 - Temporary Directories Full

May 26, 2010

I've upgraded to 13.1 from 13.0 but can't startx. I get this error;
'call to lnusertemp failed (temporary directories full?)'

When I ctl-alt-backspace there are numerous messages including these two;
'/usr/bin/kde4-config: symbol lookup error:/user/lib/libkdecore.so.5:
undefined symbol: _zn9qlistdatadetach3ev.
and
startkde: error: could not locate lnusertemp in /usr/bin/startkde: line
302::command not found.

Linux 13.0 worked OK right out of the "box" so I don't understand why this version has this problem. Was something changed from 13.0 to 13.1?

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Login Using The Only User Account?

Mar 29, 2010

If I'm getting good at anything with Fedora, it would be making mistakes. I have Fedora 12 installed and it was running fine until I attempted to set the path in bashrc and cshrc for jdk. Now I am unable to login using the only user account I created at install. When I enter my password the login screens goes blank then my mouse pointer appears with the circling dashed loading symbol for a few secs and then brings me back to the login screen asking for my password again.

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache User_dir Mod And Home Directories - Automatically Set When User Account Created?

May 28, 2010

I want to automaticly set the group ownership of user home directories to a group that the user is not part of. This is so that Apache can be part of this group and can access user public HTML directory, but other users are not able to access in any way the files in the users home directory. What I have seen that works manually is adding the user and then changing the group for the home directory. But I want to automatically set this when the user account is created. WHat I see happening is that when /etc/skel is copied, it automatically sets the group and ownership of everything to the users default group and ownership. I've seen some suggestions on setting permissions, but these don't seem to work because it seems that users are able to cd into a directory and not list it, but if they know the file name they can access the file.

Server :: Specify Several Different User Login Directories?

Jan 25, 2010

I'm having trouble setting up a vsftp server correctly. What I want to do is allow a number of users to log on (no anonymous user) and each of them to be taken to their own "top level directory" from which they can not escape.

I've got most of this working, but I can't find a way to automatically transfer each user to *their* working area. The "local_root" directive doesn't quite do what I want as everybody has to share the same working area (potentially users could interfere with each other). On the other hand I don't want each user to work from their home directory because there are loads of special files there that I don't want users playing with.

To add one extra compilation, I'm also running an html server on the same machine. One of the directories the html server can see is one of the ftp area root directories (So what I'm trying to do is give one special user ability to ftp files onto the html server. Other users must *NOT* have this ability)

Programming :: Find Login User With The Largest Account?

Dec 13, 2010

I'm looking for a script that can do two things: (1) determine the shortname of the user with the largest account in /Users and (2) look up their full/long name. I'm going to use this script to help identify who the user on a computer and while I know that's possible that a sometime-user may have a larger account than the normal-user on any given computer, the results of a script should be sufficient in most cases for my needs.I'm not sure the best way to around this. I know that can use "du -m -d1 /Users" as root:

root on torchwood
[ ~ ]$ du -m -d1 /Users
157 /Users/admin

Fedora Security :: Administrative Login In User Account?

Sep 25, 2009

I am a new Linux user and have a question about the administrative authentication. When I am logged in as a user and I need to do something that requires root privileges the little password window comes up and I enter the root password. My question is how long are the root privileges granted for?I noticed that a few minutes after finishing checking out the firewall configuration tool and closing the window that I was still able to re-enter the fire wall tool and other administrative tools. How do I log out of the root privileges without logging out and then back into my account?

OpenSUSE :: Disk Full With Temporary Files - System Goes Slower

Jan 24, 2010

I am using OpenSuse 11.2 (64 bits) with KDE 4.3.1. My hard disk partition contains 3 areas : / + /home + swap. Frequently the / area is filling with, I suppose, temporary files until it is full (15 Go) and that in a very short time, typically about 5 mn. Then, these files are cleaned by the system, when disk space is needed I suppose. The point is that during this time, the system goes slower and slower until the "cleaning". That seems to occur only when Firefox (3.5.6) is running so I suppose that these files are temporary internet files.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Login With Domain Account

I planned to use Squid on my W2k3 network, because I'm tired of ISA2k6.it's a factory in itself. So, I just installed a VM with OpenSuse 11.2 and joined it to my AD W2k3 domain. After correcting the clock problems, everything is running fine except a strange feature that I was not able to solve.After a reboot, I'm not able to login with a domain account. I enter the username/password, choose the domain then it the input fields become grey for 1-2 seconds then the password field is reset and nothing happens.The most strange part comes when you logon with the local root account. You login as root, then logoff and login with any domain account : works like a charm..

Fedora :: Unable To Ftp A User Account On A EC2 Instance Of Fc12

Jun 19, 2010

I am able to ftp the root of my EC2 instance of fc12 with a private key. However, I am unable to ftp a user account on a EC2 instance of fc12.I do not know what commands were given to fc12 to create an AMI that uses a private key instead of a password.As root administrator I like it. However, I am trying to set up users in such a way that Windows users using "My Network Places" can access my EC2 instance of fc12. I have created accounts for my users and set a password for each of them (useradd). The problem is that I am unable to ftp the fc12 server with the user name and password. The error message the client gets when it tries to do so says there is no supported authentication method available. I presume I must somehow change server security or something to allow access to users with passwords but I do not know how to do this.

Ubuntu Servers :: Unable To Login With Root Account After New Install

Jan 11, 2010

This may sound a bit odd, but after installing Ubuntu Server 9.10 64-bit version, I can't seem to log in with the root account that I created. My user account works fine. I thought that I may have fat fingered the password when I created it so I ran the installer again since it takes very little time to do so. When creating the new root account password, I was very careful to type it correctly. After the install was complete, I am still unable to use the root account. I'm unable to SU from my normal user account, too. I just receive the Login incorrect error. Is there something with using root accounts with Ubuntu server that I'm missing?
