troubles with .Iceauthority

Post by elisabetta » 2014/02/06 10:16:17

when I try to log into my account, the following messages appear:

"could not update .ICEauthotity file, /home/username/.ICEauthority"

"Nautilus can't create /home/username/Desktop" and /home/username/.nautilus"

"usr/libexec/gconf-sanity -check-2 exit with status 256"

when I open the terminal
this message appear:

".bashrc: permission denied"

I have no permission in my account.

Please could someone help me?

Is your home directory owned by your userid? Perhaps it needs `chown myuser:myuser /home/myuser` run as the root user to fix it - maybe including the -R switch to do so recursively to fix all the files inside it too.

Try these as root:

chown -R username /home/username
chmod u+rwx /home/username
restorecon -R /home/username

thank you for your suggestions

I have applied "chown" and "chmod" command, but nothing is changed.
I am the owner of the file in my account, e.g. for the files .Iceauthority and .bashrc:

ls -al command:

-rwxrwxrwx usename username .ICEauthority

-rwxr--r-- username username .bashrc

the centos version I am using is 6.5...I have chosen the wrong forum :oops:

Perhaps you have duplicate user definitions in /etc/passwd. Try "grep username /etc/passwd", it should return only one row. The third field in the output is the numeric user ID, typically something around 500. The passwd format is username:x:userid:groupid:realname:homedir:shell.

Confirm that your home directory is owned by that numeric ID with "ls -nd /home/username", it should show the same numeric user ID as in the above command. If there are differences, try "chown -R yournumericid /home/username".

Perhaps it's a SELinux issue? Try setting SELinux to permissive mode with "setenforce 0".

SELinux is already in permissive mode...
