Thumbs up

hi everyone,
Finally, i got solution for "could not update ICEauthority file /home/Evanjalin/.ICEauthority". Am beginner to fedora and probably its wrong or right. may be this will help for those who like me. So i just post what i did and its work for me (fedora17 32 bit).
Problem in my root user (i.e) user.

1)press ctrl+alt+F2
2)login with your root
3)if you not create secondary user already, create user as
useradd <user1>
passwd <user1>.
4)$sudo chown user1:user1 /home/user1/.ICEauthority
$sudo chmod 777 /home/user1/.ICEauthority
$sudo chown user1 -R /home/user1

5)This change the root access permission to new user and user1 act as root.

press ctrl+alt+F3/ctrl+alt+F4. you can view the fedora display.

chmod which is used to give permission for file, folder etc.. read, write and excute (4+2+1=7). According to your wish you can change it... google it...

Thank u..
