Ubuntu :: 11.04 Gnome Shell - Could Not Update ICEauthority File /home/user/.ICEauthority
I recently installed Ubuntu 11.04 with Unity as the default desktop environment, but I wanted Gnome 3 instead. So the installation of Gnome 3 and Gnome Shell went through, and I'm presented with a nice "gnomeish" gdm, but when I type my user password and try to log in all I get is this:

Code: Could not update ICEauthority file /home/pontus/.ICEauthority And all I can click is a button that logs me out.

I've tried from the terminal to change owner and rights and I've even tried to delete the file, but I still get this dialog every time I log in.

Ubuntu :: Could Not Update ICEauthority File /home/jimmy/.ICEauthority
I've just installed Ubuntu 10.04 onto my system and have been getting an error message right after i enter my password to login "Could not update ICEauthority file /home/jimmy/.ICEauthority" I can close this and everything seems to work fine. I have no idea as to why i get this error and how do i get rid of it. I tried using one of the suggestions and entered the command

Code:

sudo chown jimmy:jimmy .ICEauthority

got an input/output error for this I've checked the permissions using the following command

Code:

ls -l home/jimmy/.ICEauthority

got the following output

-rw------- 1 jimmy jimmy 0 2010-12-18 22:55 /home/jimmy/.ICEauthority

Ubuntu :: Could Not Update ICEauthority File /home/username/.ICEauthority
I've updated my password some days back and when I restarted my machine I got error messages stating...

1. Could not update ICEauthority file /home/username/.ICEauthority it gives me only xClose tab and when I click it I get another error message saying...

2. There is a problem with the configuration server.

(/usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256) xClose and the last message which i get says that...

3. Nautilus could not create the required folder "/home/username/Desktop".Before running Nautilus, please create the following folder, or set permissions such that Nautilus can create it.

Now every time when I restart my machine I've to follow this procedure...

1. I select my username and then login using xterm.

2. I give command ecryptfs-mount-private and give another password to mount it (it's not taking my regular password)

3. After doing this it takes me back to the login screen and allow me to log in normally...

Ubuntu :: Could Not Update ICEauthority File /home/holocene/.ICEauthority
I have installed 9.10 on a Dell laptop internal drive.My problem is that I am getting the error:

Code:

Could not update ICEauthority file /home/holocene/.ICEauthority then after hitting enter I get:

Code:

There is a problem with the configuration server. (/usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)

How do I get this user and files functioning again?

What I did:

1. Installed ubuntu

2. got wireless/mail/other things working and used them for a couple days.

3. Decided my password was too short (insecure) and changed it. I used the GUI tool on the admin screen called Users, I think it is called.

4. restarted my laptop later, and got these messages.

I have googled extensively about this error, and it seems there is no good explanation as to how to get my user "holocene" back as a functioning user account. I have been able to setup another user using the recovery console but this is not a satisfying compromise.

Ubuntu :: Could Not Update ICEauthority File /home/superuser/.ICEauthority?
2.Could not update ICEauthority file /home/superuser/.ICEauthority3.there is a problem with configuration server.(/usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256).nautilus could not create the following required folders./home/superuser/desktop,/home/superuser/.nautilus. *before running nautilus, please create these folders, or set permissions such that nautilius can create them*5.GConf error: no database available to save your configuration: Unable to store a value at key '/apps/nautilus/preferences/clutter_Test: As the configuration server has no writable databases. There are some common causes of this problem: then the long list I am on my mobile phone..

First I would like to say I learned my lesson by being high on curosity! I believe I was goofing around with systems-users-advance systems and one of the drop downs I submitted root. Proceeding this path it lead me to a tricky question about transfering old files to a new home or something, but it will also delete the old files on my old home idk maybe two gconf ( read the username)

Fedora Servers :: Login Through Gdm - Could Not Update ICEauthority File /home/brad/.ICEauthority FreeIPA
I am setting up a freeipa2 server (both fedora 15), and I was able to get the ipa-client-install to work perfectly (as far as I know) by yum excluding libcurl and curl. If I run kinit brad, I can authenticate and that works aswell.

But when I want to login as me through gdm, I get "Could not update ICEauthority file /home/brad/.ICEauthority" granted the home folders do not exist as this would be my first ever login.

I am currently replacing a windows computer lab to fedora, and have got eveything else ready to go.

General :: Unable To Access File /home/username/.iceauthority: No Such File Or Directory
Can't log into my XFCE desktop like I normaly do. all the sudden I get notified that my xsession lasted less then 10 secondsLooking at the error I can see this:

Unable to access file /home/username/.iceauthority: No such file or directory

Using failsafe I can start a terminal. From terminal I tried to start X

Code: sudo startx Result: Running on desplay:0

So I tried to run this;

Code: sudo startxfce4 And I get up a graphical desktop.

So this is not a critical situation as I easily can use this method to log on, but as there has been something causing this I would like to be able to resolve this nonetheless. Btw it is not the old chmod trick in play here, cause my .iceauthority file is gone alltogheter.

General :: Unable To Login - Could Not Update ICEAuthority File
I installed Fedora 11 and was trying to setup a Web server for pure LAMP development and wanted to port forward with router so that my webserver can be access from inter net.

Server installation was perfectly fine. I was able to login from the user which I created during the installation. Instead of auto get ip I assigned 192.168.1.100 and then I set a HTML Server port forward.

Where the problem started.

I wanted to configure few users on vsFTPd and I tell you truly there is no place on Google where some one has defined a descent way which any person can understand that we can add some users.

Somewhere I found that Linux normal users can also access ftp if the local_user directive is set YES which i did and I added 3 users.

I wanted that whenever user is connected by vsFTPd returned them /var/www/html directory. Where as vsFTPD was taking them to their home directory (respective to each user)

I was unable to find any way that I can configure vsFTPd to set one default directory path which take every user to www/html directory so that developers can deploy websites.

I notice Gnome GUI offers each user a home directory path so I though why not I gave every new user and existing user /var/www/html as their home directory

which i did... and this is how my Server stop responding to any further login attempts.

FTP is still working fine if I left it open It let the ftp client to connect but Linux server is not allowing login by any user

It gives an error 'Could not update ICEAuthority file /var/www/html//.ICEauthority'

And when i click close then next message is : 'There is problem with the configuration server (/usr/libexec/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)'

Is there any way i can undo? Is there any way i can go directly to shell and remove those users and re-add some new users in the default way - I believe if I can add one new user with default directory /home/user I will be able to login

After this is resolve still I will need to search how we can add FTP users and take them to the directory /var/www/html

Ubuntu Installation :: Update Failure On .ICEauthority And Separate /home
I created a separate /home partition after installing Karmic on a new computer using this HowTo :

[URL]

I copied all the files from /home/user using

find . -depth -print0 | sudo cpio --null --sparse -pvd /new/

On booting after the change, the new /home is correctly on a separate partition BUT during boot I get a message :

Could not update ICEauthority file /home/user/.ICEauthority

I checked and the ownership and permissions for /home/user/.ICEauthority are correct. The suggested remedy of deleting the file & waiting for it to be recreated doesn't work either. But when I compare other hidden files in the new /home/user directory, quite a few now have their ownership changed to root. & I am unable to connect to my external monitor because of a permission problem (probably connected).

General :: Gnote Crash - Could Not Update ICE Authority File
I changed the user name using the User Properties window and rename the home directory with the new user name. Did not change the Group Name. The new name is ResearLab

When I restarted the system I received an error message:
Gnote Crash
gnote 0.7.3-4.fc14

Following are the messages:

(1) could not update ICE authority file/home/ResearLab/.ICE authority
There is a problem with the configuration server

(2) /usr/Libexec/gconf-Sanity-check-2 exited with status 256

(3) Nautilus could not create the following required folders: /home/ResearLab/Desktop, /home/ResearLab/.nautilus.
Before running nautilus, please create these folders or set permission such that natilus can create them.

A. What did I do wrong? Is it not possible to rename a user in Linux?
B. How can I correct this problem?
C. Should I have created a new user instead or renaming an existing one?
D. Can the primary group be renamed?

Server :: /usr/bin/xauth: Timeout In Locking Authority File?
[URL]

We have the same problem but tried his solution to no avail.

Doing a shh would give me an error..

Quote:

usr/bin/xauth: timeout in locking authority file /var/www/html/felipe/.XauthorityServer sent command exit status 1

When I change SElinux to permissive from enforcing I can login but turning back to enforcing, the problem comes back. I did the following...

Quote:

[felipe@nimitz ~]$ ls -Z .Xauthority
-rw-------. felipe felipe unconfined_ubject_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 .Xauthority
[felipe@nimitz ~]$ ls -lZd
drwxr-xr-x. felipe apache system_ubject_r:httpd_sys_content_t:s0 .
[felipe@nimitz ~]$ ps -eZ|grep sshd

[code]....

I tried to create a new user with the default directory in /home and it work fine.

Ubuntu Networking :: Home File Server - Read / Write Compatibility
I've been a Xubuntu/Ubuntu/Lubuntu hobby user for about 18 months now. I started using Linux as a way to revive older computers provide a backup and expand my knowledge of computing. The command line was something new to me but as long as I can find detailed directions on how to do what I want I can usually manage. I set up a Samba server for my home shared network and now I'd like to make the shared drives of that server accessible from outside my network. Via ssh or ftp or some program of the like. I'd like to have it user name and password protected. Configurable user rights would be nice. (read/write/delete/etc) As well as novice user friendly.

My end goal is a server with read/write capability that I will be able to access from work or a friends house or anywhere with an Internet connection and my laptop. I understand about port forwarding and have done so with my home network behind an AT&T U-verse router/modem. I've researched openssh and some ftp setups but they seem like they can be difficult. Now for the questions. Is this task something that can be accomplished without a degree in computer networking? Is there a program(s) that would make this a simpler task? Is this more complex than its worth? How would I go about setting up such a thing?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Create Trashing Info File: Read-only File System

So when I click on delete I get another error message:

At this point I can only click on Skip, Skip All, or Cancel.

I have not changed anything on the stick recently so I dont know what is causing the problem.

General :: Rm: Cannot Remove '/home/ridwan/.serverauth.3457': Read-only File System
I am using Slackware 13 x86_4. I have it set so that when I close my lid, it suspends to RAM. When I open my lid, it asks for password, but after I enter it, it freezes. I force KDE down by Ctrl+Alt+Backspace then read the errors. It says:

Code:

xauth: error in locking authority file /home/ridwan/.Xauthority
rm: cannot remove '/home/ridwan/.serverauth.3457': Read-only file system

When I try to startx again, it says

Code:

/usr/bin/startx: line 158: cannot create temp file for here document: Read-only file system
/usr/bin/startx: line 174: cannot create temp file for here document: Read-only file system
/usr/bin/startx: line 174: cannot create temp file for here document: Read-only file system

[code]...

It forces me to power off the laptop by holding down the power button. When I try ctrl+alt+delete, I get an error saying "can't execute from /sbin/shutdown/"
