All of a sudden whe I try to log into my fedora linux, I get Could not update /home/username/.ICEauthority. I tried
$chown user -R /home/user (where user is obviously your user name - run as su - )

I tried deleting the file so linux creates it back, but it doesnt work

I ls -l /home/username and I have persmissions to the ICEauthority file, bu it wont work.
