I had some problems with matplotlib (Python). Someone had suggested deleting .ICEauthority file. I did it and my problem with Python is solved. Is that going to cause any side-effects on my system?

1 Answer 1


I have removed those files for about a month now. I had to do this on three different computers, and they are all working fine now. So, I suppose removing .ICEauthority file doesn't affect anything noticeably.
