Unable to read ICE authority file


How is this for weird. I turned my computer on and went to log in as my main user. I waited and suddenly I was told that my session lasted less than 10 seconds. I viewed the error log and this is what it said.

/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default: Registering your session with wtmp and utmp

** (gnome-session:10266): WARNING **: Unable to read ICE authority file: /home/dstamp/.ICEauthority

What on earth does it mean and how can I fix it. Last time all I did was use aMSN and surf the net. It is a really new install (done a day ago). Can someone help me fix it please?

Thanks

It's a known problem that occurs sometimes. I read somewhere it could be caused by using some kde programs in gnome.

Try moving the .ICEauthority file in your homedir or remove it alltogether, a new iceauthority file will be generated.:

Ctrl+Alt+F1

login

Code:
cd /home/dstamp
Code:
mv .ICEauthority .ICEauthority-old
or
Code:
rm .ICEauthority
Ctrl+Alt+F7

and try to log into gnome again.
