Red face Can't get past login screen


The other day when I rebooted I could not get past the 'login screen' on linux so in XP I searched for "can not logni" without success.
(Duel boot system)

Later I found out that if I used a 'Live CD' and went into the terminal I entered 'sodu konqueror' after giving the user all permissions available and changed the file ".ICRauthority" to ".ICRauthority.tmp". When I rebooted without the 'Live CD' I was able to login easily.
