mktemp: cannot create temp file at startkde


I have an problme in connecting remote server through xmanager.
But I could connect with Putty.

The error message of startkde is here.

Quote:
[16:15:06] Start timer (TIMER_SHUTDOWN, 180).
/usr/bin/xauth: error in locking authority file /home/ymstv/.Xauthority
mktemp: cannot create temp file /tmp/KDE.startkde.mc9443: Read-only file system
mktemp: cannot create temp file /home/ymstv/KDE.startkde.PV9444: Read-only file system
/usr/bin/startkde: line 36: $testfile_tmp: ambiguous redirect
You don't have write permissions for /tmp
Any help would be appreciated.

You are trying to log onto a system where you don't have write permissions for /tmp. Why this is true is a mystery with the available information.

Try writing to /tmp:

Code:
$ touch /tmp/test-file
See what happens. Also look at /tmp, see what permissions it has:

Code:
$ ls -dla /tmp
Should resemble this:

drwxrwxrwt. 22 root root 4096 2009-10-14 01:29 /tmp

If it doesn't, fix it and try again.
