How do I remove: protoname=ICE prododata="" netid=local/NASCI :/tmp/.ICE-unix/3344


Slackware12, Xfce Desktop 4.4.2 system and I do not use ICE Box so I don't understand why I am getting ICE related error messages in my /tmp folder:

/tmp/.xfsm-ICE-WZX52T
remove protoname=ICE protodata="" netid=local/hostname :/tmp/.ICE-unix/3344
authname=MIT -MAGIC-COOKIE-1
remove protoname=XSMP protodata="" netid=local/hostname :/tmp/.ICE-unix/3344
authname=MIT -MAGIC-COOKIE-1

My /tmp folder is quickly filling up with similar files the numbers in /tmp/.ICE-unix/3293<-- are the only change from file to file.

1. What is protoname=ICE protodat=""
What is protoname=XSMP protodata=""
2. Where is it?
3. How do I remove the required lines?

Thanks

Has nothing to do with "ICE Box". /tmp/.ICE-unix/* are sockets that store X session information. If you run X, you'll have that folder. Stands for Inter-Client Exchange I believe.

The rest is fairly cryptic. XSMP I assume means X Session Management Protocol.

What is in /tmp/.xfsm-ICE-WZX52T ? It may help to shed some light on the subject. I'm guessing that's X Free Session Management. Or what ever the XF in XFCE stands for.

What are the perms on a recursive listing of /tmp? You might also want to look at your xinitrc for XFCE. You might find the cause in there. Dunno.

It can't do any harm to remove everything in /tmp. It will probably bork your X session a little but a quick reboot should get you a clean /tmp directory to start trouble shooting the issue if it still remains. That's probably what I would do anyway.

The following is what is in /tmp/.xfsm-ICE-WZX52T:

remove protoname=ICE protodata="" netid=local/hostname :/tmp/.ICE-unix/3344
authname=MIT -MAGIC-COOKIE-1
remove protoname=XSMP protodata="" netid=local/hostname :/tmp/.ICE-unix/3344

Oh... Right. If I understand correctly your jumping the gun. Is XFCE spitting errors out at you when you try to start it or during running it? Are you assuming the contents of that file is an error alone?

If it's just that file then I wouldn't sweat it. Slackware doesn't remove /tmp/* on a reboot or shutdown like most distros do. I modify rcS to clear out tmp/. If you don't, tmp/ can become a cluster ****. Then, I suppose it's easy to think that something is wrong when in fact it isn't.

I don't see where any of that could be construed as an error. It's just an XFCE session file. Forget about it.

EDIT - You should really, really quit cross posting too. You seem to have a bad habit of that. If you use Slackware then just post here. We can help you.
