Problem with /var/lib/gdm/ICEauthority file
Long story short... I basically changed the folder permissions on the /var folder with the the chmod command.... did "chmod -R piyush /var"
I did a system update.. it asked me to restart... Did that and now I'm not able to login... As soon as X starts, it gives me and error message.. something like "Could not update file /var/lib/gdm/ICEauthority"... so I googled it and found that it had something to do with setting the file permissions... I reverted back the permissions on the /var folder.. but even then I get the same message... (I am able to login with runlevel 3)..
Got really frustrated and deleted the /var/lib/gdm/ICEauthority file.. and I still get the same message... Is reinstalling the only way or is there still some chance for me to rescue this installation...
