Ubuntu :: Create A New User From The Gnome GUI?

Oct 4, 2010

Any idea how to "repair" "the configuration server" ? I'm only a month into Ubuntu and I have this fatal inability to create a new user from the Gnome GUI. For any new user I create, I get the following fatal errors upon rebooting and trying to log in to that user.

- Purple clouds for about a minute.
-- then --
- Could not update ICEauthority file /home/user_encrypted/.ICEauthority
- There is a problem with the configuration server.
- (/usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)
-- then --
- Nautilus could not create the following required folders:
- /home/user_encrypted/Desktop, /home/user_encrypted/.nautilus

Red Hat / Fedora :: Login - Error "no Profile For The User Can Be Found And It Couldnt Create Per-user Gnome Configuration Directory"

Aug 8, 2010

I have a network set up that has been working for around a year with no problems but has now developed a login problem. The system was set up with a main server with all users on it and another PC located elsewhere that people could log onto using there personal login and password that then gained access to the account on the main server. This remote PC has now got the problem. When you try to log onto an account it comes up with the message "your session has lasted less than 10 seconds. If you have not logged out yourself this could mean there is a installation problem or that you are out of disk space."

Error message says that no profile for the user can be found and it couldnt create per-user gnome configuration directory. I can log on as root onto the remote PC as it is obviously a local account but all the account on the main server are not accessible. From the root account I can see that the connection to the server is OK and I can actually log into the accounts on the server using the failsafe session so the physical network is OK.

I never built or designed this set up and to be honest I normally work with windows so its all a bit strange to me. Both PC's run Centos 5. I have checked the messages log and there doesnt seem to be any indication of a problem. Just that it stopped connecting from the remote PC. The accounts are all active on the main server itself and have no problems being accessed.

Ubuntu :: Made An Error With Chmod - Create User But Don't Allow To See The Other User's Home Folder

Jan 18, 2010

I wanted to create an user but don't allow it to see the other user's home folder so I made chmod 0750 /home/folder and it worked fine so I went ahead and decided to completely forbid access to the root folder and I had the "great" idea to make chmod 0750 /, and now I'm having problems with wine and other applications, in example I used to have a folder in this address but now it's giving me errors and if I try to run some applications I got error "There was an error creating the child process for this terminal"

Ubuntu :: How To Create New/Separate User

May 5, 2010

I want to try out KDE on Lucid, but I don't want to install KDE on top of ubuntu, because I will end up with two sets of applications and software that is gnome specific to load in the KDE environment.SOOOOO, I want to create a separate user that is only KDE and a user(my current one) that is only gnome. Different names, different environments and applications.

Also, if it is possible, I will need instructions to remove a user as well, so in the future I decide which one I like better, I can delete the other user account.

Ubuntu :: Create A New Desktop User?

When I create a new desktop user(i.e. without administrative privileges), I am given the option of letting him have the ability to connect to wired/wireless networks or not. Should I let a normal user have this privilege? Are there any security issues if I let him connect to wireless networks?

Ubuntu Networking :: Create A Single User ISP Over DSL?

Oct 28, 2010

I have a good question. I have a friend that lives in an area where he cannot receive DSL or Cable internet. He has a phone line, and physically able to get DSL, but the company won't give him service. He has Verizon wireless, but the reception is bad and his service gets dropped too much.

I however, have DSL 3.0Mbps and want to know how I could get him a DSL modem to dial up to my server at my house and receive internet. I know that I would probably need two phone lines to do this, but apart from that.

Ubuntu :: Create An OpenBiblio Database User?

Dec 8, 2010

I'm attempting to install OpenBiblio to give it a test drive. I'm having trouble with one of the first steps within the openbiblio install guide. The step is dealing with MySQL in creating user priveleges to the db created. The step is:

Create an OpenBiblio database user. To do this, login to MySQL under the admin userid and run the following SQL command, substituting obiblio_user and obiblio_password with the userid and password of your choice.

mysql> grant all privileges on OpenBiblio.* to obiblio_user@localhost
-> identified by 'obiblio_password';

When I run the "grant all priveleges" command I receive a syntax error. I've spent some time googleing and it comes up with the same command. There has been a few variations attempted such as 'obiblio_user'@'localhost' but still recieve a syntax error.

General :: How To Create Another User

Aug 11, 2009

I know this will sound stupid, but we've been tasked with standing up a professional Linux server to run a vendor tool and product on. And my team has never administered a Linux or Unix box before. I know the concepts, but can't find the tools!

How do I create a user-ID? And is there a GUI tool I can fire up from the command line to make some of this easier? We can get to the box, manipulate files, etc. But to this point we're exclusively usint 'root', and I know I need to stop that, and prevent that happening in the future.
