I just upgraded to ubuntu 11.04. I've no issues with creating users, but if they login an error occurs. For example, when I create the user "luli" and login with that user, I got the error:
Could not update ICEauthority file /home/luli/.ICEauthority
I can only see the cursor and the background, then:
There is a problem with the configuration server. (usr/lib/libgconf2-4/gconf-sanity-check-2 exited with state 256)
Then a notification shows up an the right up corner:
Could not apply the stored configuration for monitor.
And finally another error message:
Nautilus could not create the following folders: /home/luli/Desktop and /home/luli/.nautilus. Before running nautilus, please create this folders, or set permissions such that Nautilus can create them.
Then nothing else happens, and I have to restart the computer. I looked for this error on the internet and someone said that fixed with changing permissions to the folders manually. I created those folders, as said on the last error message, and set the permissions using:
sudo chmod 755 /home/luli/ sudo chown luli:luli /home/luli/
Then i copied the archive
.ICEauthority form my personal user folder, to the new user's folder and used this:
sudo chmod 600 /home/luli/.ICEauthority sudo chown luli:luli /home/luli/.ICEauthority
And i got nothing to change, it still not work. I have to add that a couple of days ago i moved the /home folder to its own partition, in order to have my files more independent from the system. I did that following this steps: http://embraceubuntu.com/2006/01/29/move-home-to-its-own-partition/
Thank you for your time!
