Boot Up errors: .ICEauthority


Hi all,
I'm getting two pop up errors when Linux is booting up but after I click ok on them the system boots up fine. I was hoping you all could help me get rid of them.

First error: Could not update ICEauthority file /var/lib/gdm/.ICEauthority

Second error after I click ok: There is a problem with the configuration server (usr/lib/GConf/2/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)

I believe this happened after I created some user accounts but I am not certain it is associated to one of them or not.

Thanks,
Jason

bump...btw I have did a search on this problem but mine seems to be different and changing owner to root and permissions to 666 did not help at all.

stangjason:

What distro are you running?

To make solution simple try to reinstall your windowing manager.

See if ~/username/.ICEauthority is executable. If not yet issue this on terminal:

username@host-$: chmod 770 ~/.ICEauthority <Enter>

As a rule these two files .Xauthority and .ICEauthority must be executable.

If changing exec mode cannot help then you will first need to reinstall the windowing manager (this is usually offered by the installer; in Slackware this is very easy thru a terminal script);

Then you will recreate the user via GUI in order to be sure that the /bin/bash and /home/username directories are well created where the basic user files are needed to be situated.

Read your distro documentations and /usr/doc/HOWTOs files to learn how the windowing manager is reinstalled.

Hope this helps.

Goodluck.
