Xsession: warning: unable to write to /tmp
kubuntu-5.10-breezy- kde 3.4
Installed nvidia drivers successfully
..and I extended(sources.list) to fetch applications(using adept) from the extended set of deb repositories(which i read were in a way unsafe and unsupported!)
Now probably the blunder i made was to updated a set of applications like konqueror, kcontrol, konsole etc that were (i think,) meant for KDE3.5 using adept. I did this without considering that the KDE installed on my system was 3.4. Also, adept showed them as upgradeable and so i marked them to upgrade.
After these updates i restarted the system and tried to login and received this error:
Xsession: Warning" Unable to write to /tmp; X session may exist with an error
At this error dialogue is an ok button. Pressing this button takes me back to login prompt (after a few screen flickers)
Trying to login with fluxbox and blackbox both gave me this same error. Though i am able to login into console mode.
I have tried recovery mode. but it still fails.
I am a newbie to linux
