Desktop and .nautilus folder can't be created on startup
Hi all, I hope I am not asking questions on my laptop I have ubuntu 10.10 . I changed some settings to see what will happen ( specifically to login with having to type my password) and now I can log in without a password. The problem is that I think that my password is still required, but now I can't use my laptop. Here is what happens:
I log in (it doesn't ask for a password), then I get the error that it can't update ICEauthority, then I get the error "There is a problem with the configuration server.(/usr/lib/libconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with status 256)
I also get the error that Nautilus can't create my Desktop folder and .nautilus folder.
The problem is that I do not have another account, as in no root account. Each time I had to do administrative tasks ,like install software, etc, i used the cli with sudo and the command. If I wanted to do a few commands, I usually entered sudo -i
I unfortunately do not know the shortcut key for logging in from the cli.
